Harper 2.0

Newly elected Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer is Stephen Harper 2.0.

He’s ostensibly socially conservative, yet considers abortion and gay marriage settled and won’t let his personal opinions on such matters influence his policies.

But he’s fully neo-con / Zionist warmongering; wants Canada to step up and help smash ISIS.

In short, he’s just like Stephen Harper, except he smiles more.

On the plus side, the libertarian Max Bernier didn’t win; nor did the crypto-anti-monarchist Erin O’Toole.

Kudos to Kellie Leitch, for raising ‘national question’ / immigration issues that no-one else would touch. Perhaps they’ll have a better champion in the future; we can pray…

 
 

Video: Muslim in Canada defends pedophilia

So Muslims in the West are still defending their founder’s marriage of a six-year-old girl, and consummation when she was age nine…

Their worldview is not compatible with ours.

It’s as simple as that.

Philosophies of a Disenchanted Scholar

They’re getting so bold, aren’t they?

I think the only sensible reply to this is Deus Vult.

“Silence is consent.”

The feminists say nothing.

This completely contradicts the notion of consent, which is a positive construct that must be actively given, in all law, so I would question the translation of that word. It must mean something else, Islam knows no such thing as consent. There is only its meaning, ‘submission’. Submission is never consensual, it is coerced. Coercion is like blackmail in another signed (non-marital) contract, it vitiates consent, it becomes invalid. One must be free to consent.

Lying about the conjoined medical phenomena of menstruation and puberty is another strike against reason.

This entire sham of a religion is merely an excuse for war. No other religion is warmongering. It is totally incompatible with the West and its culture and people.

How to tell if a neighbourhood is ‘vibrant’, ‘diverse’

Great quote:

This is an observant comment by theng85, about the costs, big and small, that Diversity™ imposes on society.

Also, a shower thought regarding vibrancy and open borders:

You’ve mentioned before that when a country’s border in weak or unstable, more mini-barriers will be opened up within the confines of the border. I’ll never forget walking by a brownstone in Brooklyn that had a “No border wall” sign in the window….A window that had bars over it and a locking gate around the property. What’s good for the goose isn’t good for the gander, I guess.

But there are more boundaries where there’s more vibrancy. My litmus test for whether or not I’m in a bad area is how easily I can access things in something like a gas station or a McDonald’s. If there’s a table with napkins, straws, ketchup, sugar packets, and I can walk into the bathroom and do my business without needing to talk to the staff, then I’m in a good (Read: White) area.

But if the ketchup and napkins are behind the counter, or you need to be buzzed into the bathroom/given a key, or you have to talk to the cashier through a 6 inch sheet of bulletproof glass, then you’re in a bad (Read: Vibrant) area. One of the selling points of my current apartment was that the 24-hour gas station down the street had open access to its bathrooms 24/7. That means I was in a safe neighborhood with little to no vibrancy. And I was right!

tl;dr: Diversity causes instability, instability creates boundaries.

Yep. I’ve noticed the same thing…

Another: does a neighbourhood / school dance require you to go through airport-style security?

When I went back to post-graduate school a few years back in Toronto, one night, I decided to attend a school dance; when I went, I shit you not, there was an X-ray machine that they made me pass the contents of my pockets through, and there was a portal I had to pass through, and an electromagnetic, beeping wand was waved around my body after, to make sure I hadn’t anything metallic still in my pockets. Just like at an airport.

At a college dance.

In Canada.

That never used to happen in the Great White North.

But now it does.

I found out why: 99% of the attendees were either homeboys / homegirls, guidos, or other wiggers, all droopy-pants-barely-wearing, ‘sup, ‘sup, yo’, hand-gesturing excessively types…

And it was all ‘urban’, hip-hop / R&B music…

Needless to say, I didn’t stick around very long that evening; I had maybe two beers, then I left…

Anyway, theng85’s comment at Roissy is helpful if you’re investigating a place, considering moving there…  (I also had a real estate agent describe a building elsewhere in the GTA to me as probably being ‘too Jane-and-Finch-y’ for my tastes, and anyone who’s ever spent any time in Toronto will know exactly what that means…)

Be careful not to step in the ‘diversity’…

 

Again, a man’s life left in ruins, while his sexual-assault accuser goes about hers

Christie Blatchford has the story

Mike Kydd is the poor man’s Steven Galloway — not a famous author; not a professor-cum-department head, but rather a lowly, un-tenured instructor; not particularly powerful.

Yet Kydd and Galloway both have been brought to ruin by adult female contemporaries and former students with whom the men had a consensual sexual relationship that then retrospectively morphed into various misconduct complaints against them.

While the investigation report commissioned by the University of British Columbia in the Galloway case hasn’t been made fully public — making it difficult to know with certainty precisely what the findings were — Postmedia has managed to confirm many significant details about Kydd’s case.

Details at the link; all too typical a tale…

I don’t know why male profs keep foolishly having relationships with their female students, when over and over again, this sort of thing occurs.

Learn from what happens to others, idiots! And don’t repeat their mistakes.

P.S. I’m not victim-blaming here – if you think that, then you’re thinking like a feminist – but simply pointing out that, deplorable as the misandrist double standards are, one can avoid being victimized by thinking with one’s big head (and conscience) and not one’s little one. That’s all.

 

Just let the addict idiots off themselves, already

Recall my recent post about The Powers That Be’s sudden concern about opioids?

Well, now they’re freaking out about the ostensible antidote drug:

The Ambulance Paramedics of B.C. (APBC) are raising concerns that naloxone kits are being misused by illicit substance users and dealers.

Bronwyn Barter, the president of the APBC, says drug users have developed a false sense of security with naloxone or narcan, the antidote to the overdose of drugs such as fentanyl, carfentanil, heroin, morphine, and oxycodone.

“A lot of the people with addictions are doing different things with those kits. For example, some have a false sense of security, and what they can do is something called yo-yo-ing.  They’ll drop a little bit of the naloxone, and they’ll drop a little bit of their choice of drug and they think that that will stop them from overdosing,” said Barter.

 

 
Clearly, what is needed is an antidote to the antidote, then. 😉

Just let teenage idiots who are dumb enough to abuse street opioids off themselves, and spare the gene pool!

I mean, it’s not like you can really save dumbasses from themselves, anyway; sooner or later, they’ll likely do themselves in, one way or another.

Sheesh.

 

Moralistic self-appointed SJWs of the neo-con, white-knighting variety

Came across a couple of interesting, related news stories recently; this one, and this one.

Who the hell are these guys?

They’re called ‘creep catchers‘ or ‘creep busters’; they’re Canadian (and particularly British Columbian) ‘anti-pedophilia’ vigilantes (I put that in quotes, because there’s surely a difference between a man who desires to have sexual relations with actual children, and one who desires to have sexual relations with a sexually mature, ovulating, capable-of-reproducing female over 13, and IMO, while if not married to her such a man may be guilty of fornication, he is not a pervert, and his actions should not constitute a crime, IMO.).

As can be seen from the links above and also this one, these guys are moralistic prigs who enjoy the warm glow of feeling moral superior to those they target, getting off on accusing others of being perverts, without compelling, complete evidence, and doing the same things as SJWs do – confronting them, doxing them, informing their employers, even borrowing Guy Fawkes mask imagery from Occupy / Anonymous.

As with SJWs, these bastards seem to be problematic pieces of work themselves

Unlike regular SJWs, though, these are of a more neo-con, white-knighting bent: I claim this due to their hyper-macho posturing and speech (‘Yer goin’ down, bud!’), their apparent white-knighting against (in their minds) would-be predators preying on Canadian teenage girls, etc. These are the sort of men from whose ranks the likes of Mark Driscoll and Doug Wilson arise (or Toby Keith fans)…

It would be just deserts to see these self-appointed, self-righteous, moralistic prigs who engage in entrapment-like actions doxed themselves, wouldn’t it? I’d love to see the 4channers take action against them…

Lawsuits against them and fines, though, are good; hopefully they’ll be successful, and shut them down.

 

Last Chance U removes gym scales because ‘triggering’ to eating disorder sufferers

A couple decades back, Carleton University in Ottawa was widely known as ‘Last Chance U’, because people who couldn’t get in to any other Ontario universities could reliably get into that school. Harsh, but justified, IMO.

Seems like they want to be mocked and ridiculed some more, given this:

Carleton Athletics has decided to remove the scale from the gym.

A sign where the scale used to be stated it was removed to encourage people to focus on other ways of measuring their health beyond just their weight.

The sign stated the decision to remove the scale is “in keeping with current fitness and social trends.”

Bruce Marshall, manager of health and wellness at Athletics, said focusing only on weight can have a negative impact.

“We don’t believe being fixated on weight has any positive affect on your health and well-being,” Marshall said in an email. “The body is an amazing machine and even when we are dieting and training it will often find a homeostasis at a certain weight.”

Marshall added it can take a long time to see a change in weight.

“It takes weeks, even months to make a permanent change in your weight. So why obsess about it?” he said. “Why not look at other indicators?”

According to Marshall, other indicators to look at include girth measurements, which can change “dramatically,” without much of a weight change. This involves measuring the circumference of areas such as the torso, legs, and arms to record progress.

He added people can also set goals in terms of cardiovascular fitness and overall strength, instead of only focusing on the number on the scale.

Blah blah blah; bullshit; here’s the real reason:

“Scales are very triggering,” she said. “I think people [who disagree with taking it out] are being insensitive because they simply don’t understand. They think eating disorders are a choice when they are actually a serious illness.”

Incredible…

People have rightly ridiculed and poked fun at the decision:

In online forums, the reaction was not exactly sympathetic. “Great policy,” one wrote. “Next up, ban calculators because I’m flunking calculus and seeing them triggers me.”

Another said the scale “had it coming” because it was a terrible liar. One suggested the centre should also ban mirrors.

Others lamented the loss, calling the scale “a useful tool.”

“No one is forced to step on a scale, just like no one is forced to use the squat rack. It’s an unfortunate decision to remove a useful tool that all gyms should have.”

Way to go, Last Chance U.
