    Well, we’ve been there for ten years.

    Check out Ontario’s very aptly-named “PC Party” and the loonies in the comment section implying that the previous right-liber…er…I mean…conservative losses were due to social conservatism (as if anything resembling it ever crossed Tory or Hudak’s minds). So folks, what flavour of cultural Marxism would you like to choose this election?

    I find it difficult to believe that anyone who has been awake for the past two decades finds this turn of events surprising.

    It isn’t, really.

    Still, an unfortunate development.

    @ Senghendrake: (For some reason, all your comments are going into the spam folder, weird)

    Hey, a fellow Ontarian! 🙂

    Indeed, Patrick Brown is a disappointment on everything other than education. He won’t be getting my vote next election; once again, I’ll either decline my ballot or if possible, vote for a protest candidate (as I’ve done for every Ontario election since after 1995).

    And yes, Canada alas embraced ‘SSM’ a decade ago, I well remember.

    I was hoping America wouldn’t go down the same road as us, but alas, they have…

    Ghastly eerie– it bears an unholy resemblance to the lurid color scheme in Dario Argento’s witchcraft horror “Suspiria”.

    The “Eyes Wide Shut” parties–I’m sure they go on– must really be wild this weekend. Will they use Kabbalah to incite some fresh Moloch from the depths of Hell? Will children mysteriously disappear across the land?

    I’m open to the possibility some of the more community-organizeresque types in the Charleston church shooting are watching HBO from the security of a FEMA camp. Are their coffins empty, or did some Alphabet Soup do-gooders kill two birds with one stone? Law and reason expire beneath a metaphorical blood-red moon. Liberalism has drawn about as much token blood as can be drained– soon, I think, their ravening gnostic souls will demand the real thing. Soft totalitarianism will go har;, and 1792, the European 1792, will be ours– and theirs, again.

    What for Nero was a blasphemous lark is now the law of the land. We are Countries of the Plain. Is it blasphemous to pray for the earth to tremble today beneath their feet?

    This isn’t an unwelcome development. It’s a perfect illustration of Conservatives playing totally fair using the electoral system and winning… only to have it overturned by the system they are intent on supporting. This will hopefully wake more people up.

    @ Lucius: Yes, and I thought the dark, night sky as background was more appropriate than photos taken earlier with the lighter, evening sky. It’s like the sky in the opening sequence of Netflix’s House of Cards, just as ominous and foreboding – most appropriate. 🙂

    @ Mark: Hopefully…

    @Will S. I’ll decline my ballot (as I did last time) or not vote at all. No protest candidates, I’ve given up on democracy.

    And yes, I’m from Ontario, the Ground Zero part of Ontario, educated by elementary school cat ladies and a survivor of the university Humanities department. If I can go full reactionary, I suppose anyone can.

    SSM is totally gay.

    And let’s not forget Ontario’s Premier! A lesbian working with a pedophile on a sex education curriculum: what could go wrong?

    @ Senghendrake: Yes, I’ve either declined my ballot or voted for a protest candidate in the last few Ontario elections (I was in Alberta for a few years before that, in the early 2000s).

    Welcome to the reactionary world! 🙂

    The Supreme Court in the US has had a long tradition of upholding States Rights in cases like these. So the decision did come as surprise. The dangerous precedent it set is that it is now illegal to discriminate on the basis of a lifestyle choice. You can bet, like other discrimination laws,it will be very selectively enforced.

    The US has just become the 4th Reich, with the Rainbow Flag as the new Swastika.

    Yep—that’s what it should really look like…
