Hillary Clinton supporters think Sharia Law is a good thing

Just in case it’s BillyHW’s birthday or something. h/t

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    That’s what I love about you ‘Mamba, always thinking of your other fellow board members. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Happy B’-day Billy!
    Whenever that might be.

    • BillyHW

      Not my birthday, but I appreciate the thought.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Well, let us know when it is. We will get you something nice.
        ‘Mamba’s teat! ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • Um…

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            GODDAMN AUTOCORRECT!!!!!!!!!!

          • Sure, sure, blame the autocorrect.

        • Justin St.Denis

          I would be careful about offering the teats of others. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Easy for you to say, you don’t have to now go into the witness protection program.
            That was awkward!

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Can we bring back literacy tests?
    Please?

    • Justin St.Denis

      I SO wish. But let me tell you something. From 2002 through to 2006, I consulted closely with two ministries of the Ontario government on new communications hires. Because one of these ministries had recently discovered that its director of communications couldn’t read or write. I brought in a grammar “test” used in the 7th Grade English finals circa 1966. Over four years, that test was administered (via computer testing/automatic scoring) hundreds of times. Only FIVE candidates pased that test in over four years. I kid you not. This is one reason why Carleton University journalism grads garnered the university a reputation as Cartoon U. University of Toronto grads were notoriously semi-literate at best.

      I am so glad we sent out children to Waldorf Academy schools. Not only are they literate, but they also came out fluently (spoken and written) trilingual (English, French, German). All three were offered multiple scholarships to attend various schools in North America, but chose instead to pursue their university studies abroad. (Czech Republic, Hungary, and Italy).

        Really? Wow.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I never considered French immersion for our kids.
        I would rather they were literate in one language than illiterate in two.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Is that your experience of French immersion? Interesting. BTW, Waldorf Academy is not a French immerssion program institution. And our sons graduated literate in three different languages. I only had two when I got out of school. I felt cheated.

          BTW, the average HS grad in Ontario entering university is usually advised to take remedial English courses since Ontario graduates do not possess the language skills to handle university curricula. The overwhelming majority of these students were schooled in English in unilingual English schools. so, so much for your “theory” about French-immersion. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I was in elementary school when they first introduced French immersion.
            At the time there were stories of mixed results.

          • Alain

            Were they teaching international French, it would be different. In Canada from what I have seen that is not the case.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            French in Manitoba is Manitoba French.
            By the way, Traitor Day is coming up.
            I’m a quarter French.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Manitoba French is painful to listen to. Mercifully, most Manitoba francophones also speak English. ๐Ÿ˜‰

            My French is what I call “mid-Atlantic” – that is to say that I am understood by French-language speakers regardless of where they are from. It is accentless, uses virtually no idiomatic phrasing, and scares the shit out of most francophones without a doctoral degree. Thanks, Mom and Dad! That worked out really, really well for me. But they fucking hate me in Quebec City, especially when they have to pay me and invite me back (usually to pay me again). ๐Ÿ˜‰

            Gawd how I love my little professional niche!

      • Xavier

        Very good, I’m glad that turned out so well, and because you used the magic word I will tell you my favorite joke.

        What do you call someone who can speak 3 languages?
        Trilingual.

        What do you call someone who can speak 2 languages?
        Bilingual.

        What do you call someone who can speak 1 language?
        American. Ba-da-boom.

        We really are a bunch of dumb asses.

      • That’s awesome. We couldn’t afford private schools in Canada, but we could afford them abroad. All my kids came out bilingual in Spanish and English — perfect accents in both languages. One of my kids added Cantonese Chinese to the language repertoire, and has studied in four different countries including China. They were also raised without TV much of the time and learned to read as a form of entertainment. When we returned to Canada they were a grade ahead of everyone else.

        A lot of people in the Third World (middle and upper class) who have the money and opportunity to send their kids to study in the U.S. or Canada refuse to do so. They’ve heard enough anecdotes from other parents of how their children can be ruined — often they end up on drugs or some other vice while in University here, and drop out.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Interesting. My eldest picked up Mandarin as well due to the demands of his business and profession. In the process, we acquired a Beijing-born daughter-in-law. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Nothing says “progressive” or “liberal” more than being ignorant and ill informed.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Bingo!

  • This is how leftism has spread. Ignorant, stupid people mimicking what they think is the current in-thing to say, to do, to think.

    Following what seems to be fashion, so as to fit in, so as to be one of the boys or girls, so as to get a boy or girl friend, so as to get some prestige, to be noticed, to make it.

    Although these people think they are avant-garde, revolutionary, independent – they are in fact utterly conventional, sheepish followers, easily manipulated.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I recently had to listen to some liberal bore hold forth on how – and I am not making this up! – the French and English languages are both offshoots of the German language. I protested that every single page of the Oxford Dictionary and the Larousse Dictionary stand in stark contradiction to that. “What the hell are you trying to say?” he demanded. “Oh, just that you’re an ignorant asshole, I imagine…” my gorgeous wife quickly filled in.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I have a mild interest in languages.
        Recently I was explaining to a co-worker about the Romance languages and the Germanic languages.
        And how English was unique among Germanic languages because of the Norman Conquest.
        I would have said the same thing to your liberal bore.

        • DavidinNorthBurnaby

          English is also different from other European languages in it’s simplified grammar owing to the Viking conquest of the Danelaw and intermarriage between the two closely related offshoots of Old High German. (“It’s really very interesting, Minister.” “Shut up, Bernard.” “Yes, Minister.”)

      • Xavier

        I was under the impression that English came from Low German. Educate me.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Some measure of it, yes. Dance to the radio captures why English is so much more than a derivative of German, perhaps one of the reasons why it is considered very difficult to master.

    • V10_Rob

      And these are the people that look down their noses at Trump or Cruz (or other non-establishment right wing candidates) supporters as being ignorant peasants.

  • Clausewitz

    Style over substance. God help us.

    • Xavier

      and not nearly enough of either.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Truly, you are hitting nails on heads!

  • Shebel

    If that guy in the pretty yellow hat ,and the pretty yellow braces and the awe inspiring intellect — just happened to be drowning in the ocean—

    Would any body Notice ?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Not a fucking chance.

    • Clausewitz

      Who?

  • k1962

    Just watched a bit of that, but those women have no idea what he is talking about when he mentions sharia law even though they are agreeing with what he is saying.

  • marty_p

    The results of the video would be no different if Rick Mercer stood in the middle of York University asking the same question substituting Justin Turdeau for Hillary.

    • Justin St.Denis

      York U is governed by Sharia Law, Marty. Half the effin campus is Muzzie terrorists.

  • felis gracilis

    Hey, I want the baby-faced blonde with the mams as one of my 72. She talks my language!
    I don’t know what to say about yellow hat / suspenders other than WTF?

    • Blind Druid

      Earlier on, suspenders is banging the baby faced blonde with the nice fun bags in the background of the shot. Go back and check it out.

      • felis gracilis

        Well, I did see a potential 72er riding one of those exploding hoverboards while suspenders was sharing his erudition with the camera.

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        So, she wouldn’t qualify to be one of fg’s 72. Virginity wise, that is.

    • Clink9

      Bruno!

    • Justin St.Denis

      And I suspect he’s wearing thing underwear, too. Probably yellow.

  • gxp01

    We our own ver. of these folks who voted that paved way for the Liberals to do as they please.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Hillary Clinton’s supporters think? Who knew?

    • Clausewitz

      I think it was a typo. They meant “Stink”.

      • Justin St.Denis

        That makes sense. Thanks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • eMan14

    I suspect Dice would get similar educated answers if he were to ask if having Ronald Reagan as a running mate with Trump would be a good idea. Not that yes or no would be wrong, but the fact that some people wouldn’t recognize Reagan is no longer alive.
