A Kamloops, B.C. radio host has been on the receiving end of a torrent of threats and abuse after posting a critical tweet about Canada’s Yellow Vest movement.
Radio NL host Brett Mineer took to Twitter on Wednesday to comment on what he felt were the uglier elements of the movement, including what he described as racist elements and conspiracy theories.
Apparently writing “I wish the death of all MSM” is considered a direct threat of violence nowadays. While many of the reported comments are over the top threats you would be wise to be a little suspicious of the origin of some of these tweets.
Here is a Polish joke our conservative Polish-American friends should love.
A two week gathering of diplomats and climate ‘experts’ on man-made global warming started in Katowice, Poland this week. The purpose of the meetings is to strengthen the Paris Climate Accord to stem purported climate damage, which the environmentalists claim, is caused by burning fossil fuel. Note that the greatest bugaboo to the enviros is not oil; it’s coal. To them, coal is so evil that President Barack Hussein Obama promised to shut down the entire U.S. coal industry through the heavy hand of government regulations….
Gavin McInnes, founder of the right-wing Proud Boys men’s group, has been refused a visa to enter Australia after reportedly failing the country’s character test.
A petition to oppose McInnes’ planned Deplorables tour with Tommy Robinson in Australia gathered more than 81,000 signature and was presented to the Federal Parliament on Thursday. It called on the government to block his entry because of his extreme views and calls for violence.
The FBI now classifies the far-right Proud Boys as an “extremist group with ties to white nationalism”, according to a document produced by Washington state law enforcement.
The FBI’s 2018 designation of the self-confessed “western chauvinist group” as extremist has not been previously made public.
A Polish official says the president and the prime minister are organizing a march at which all Poles can join together Sunday to mark the centennial of Polish Independence.
The announcement of the state event comes after the Warsaw city mayor earlier in the day banned a march by radical nationalists that has marred Poland’s international reputation in the past and proven deeply divisive at home.
Last Friday an unruly mob of protesters greeted well-heeled Munk Debate attendees with hostility as they lined up to enter Roy Thompson Hall to watch the debate between two intellectual heavyweights. Toronto-born American conservative pundit David Frum faced-off against former Trump White House chief strategist and co-founder of conservative firebrand news website Breitbart Steve Bannon. The motion argued: “Be it resolved, the future of western politics is populist, not liberal…”
Last week, I wrote about the oddity of Teen Vogue’s advocacy of communism. Publishing a hagiographical interview with somebody who claimed to be “literally a communist” and tweeting repeatedly about the necessary destruction of capitalism were stances, I suggested, which seemed at odds with the potential longevity of a luxury lifestyle magazine.
Since then, various members of the Left and far-Left have urged on me a consideration of which they think I am blind. They allege that people like me are taking the new far-Left far too literally, and that when certain of them say that they are “literally” communists, there is, in fact, something else going on. They are not actually planning to institute full-scale communism in the foreseeable future. Rather, they say they are doing one of a number of things, from merely striking a stance, to aiming to wound, to merely flirting with darkness.
The tone of public debate is now one of permanent rancour, growing fiercer and more vituperative
…Islamism, the hard Right and the hard Left are each distinct ideologies, operating in separate and often complex ways: even within each of those categories, there are manifold fractures and contradictions. It would be misleading to pretend that all three offer the same level of threat to wider UK society, certainly when one looks at the record of UK terrorist attacks in the last few years, the bulk of which were Islamist in origin.
But it would also be foolish to dismiss the possibility of intensifying violence at the extremes of the hard Right and the hard Left.
Not a horrible essay but the author is clearly a member of the “Tone Police” the type that assumes they will never have to get their hands dirty when push comes to shove as they’re simply above all that lower class wretchedness.
Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and his wife Jany Leveille are accused of failing to provide Siraj’s severely disabled son Abdul-ghani with his medication needed to treat his health problems including seizures, ultimately leading to his death.
“…The Yugoslav wars made it impossible for liberals to define liberalism as anything but anti-nationalism. Over time, however, the equating of liberalism with anti-nationalism came at a cost. It eroded electoral support for liberal parties, making them totally dependent on the success of economic reforms and depriving them of powerful nationalist symbols. Meanwhile, an undeclared war between liberals and nationalists led to moderate nationalists being pushed to the illiberal camp.”
Death threats, stoked by social media and encouraged by international groups of activists, have caused butchers and farmers to “live in fear.”
The German military has identified 89 far-right extremists and 24 Islamists within its own ranks since 2011, newspapers belonging to the Funke media group reported on Saturday, citing a Defense Ministry report.
The German military — known in German as the Bundeswehr — has been under pressure to deal with Nazi sympathizers among its ranks after an army lieutenant was found last year to be leading a double life posing as a Syrian refugee and planning a terrorist attack.
But Germany’s Military Counterintelligence Service (MAD) told Funke that both the number of suspected cases and the number of identified extremists had “decreased significantly” since Germany suspended conscription in 2011.
FBI Director Christopher Wray told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday that the bureau is tracking several hundred homegrown terror suspects, not counting those linked to a terror group or domestic extremist groups such as white supremacists.
“The Berlin club culture is everything that Nazis are not. And everything they hate,” the clubs wrote in a joint message that called the AfD “suit-and-tie-Nazis” and PEGIDA “German bratwursts.” “We are progressive, queer, feminist, anti-racist, inclusive, colorful, and we have unicorns. On our dance floors, people from all backgrounds unite, with diverse desires, changing identities and good taste.”
“We cannot dance to this state of things,” they wrote. “Our party will crash their march.”
Don’t you love it when SJWs take themselves way too seriously?
