This Is Joy. This Is Israel at 70

I defy you to listen to 12,000 Israelis singing "Al Kol Eleh," a song embracing "the bitter and the sweet," and not be moved.

Kendrick Lamar Just Won a Pulitzer Prize for This?!?

This is but of taste of the stuff that wowed the judges:
[Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar & RAT BOY]
Wake up in the mornin', thinkin' 'bout money, kick your feet up
Watch you a comedy, take a shit, then roll some weed up
Go hit you a lick, go fuck on a bitch
Don't go to work today, cop you a fit
Or maybe some kicks and make you—

Door and his Nike Air Rattles
Rush the fire exit, no time for battles

Well I, I never expected

Wake up in the mornin', thinkin' 'bout money, kick your feet up
Watch you a comedy—hol' up!
Wake up in the mornin', thinkin' 'bout money, kick your feet up
Watch you a comedy, take a shit, then roll some weed up
Go hit you a lick, go fuck on a bitch, don't go to work today
Cop you a fit or maybe some kicks and make it work today
Hang with the homies, stunt on your baby mama
Sip some lean, go get a pistol, shoot out the window

Bet your favorite team, play you some Madden
Go to the club or your mama house
Whatever you doin', just make it count
(I need some water)Wake up in the mornin', thinkin' 'bout money, kick your feet up
Hop in the shower, put on your makeup, lace your weave up

Touch on yourself, call up your nigga, tell him he ain't shit

Credit card scam, get you a Visa, make it pay your rentHop on the 'Gram, flex on the bitches that be hatin' on you
Pop you a pill, call up your bitches, have 'em waitin' on you
Go to the club, have you some fun, make that ass bounce

It's whatever, just make it count
Either I'm missing something or Pulitzer standards aren't what they used to be.

Israel-Loathing CBC Opiner Neil Macdonald's Plea Is an Unequivocal Demonstration of His Bias

The plea: "Call me radical, but journalists should be able to pledge support for Palestinian journalists."

No problem, Neil. You're a radical Zion-loather, and have been for decades.

Julie Birchill's Love Letter to Israel

It's succinct--and it's awesome:
I’ve been a philo-Semite since I was a teenager (you can read about in it my memoir, Unchosen) but I didn’t go to Israel until I was in my 40s. To say it lived up to my expectations is an understatement the people, culture and climate have basically ruined me for every other country. Especially the people no country ever boasted such a rainbow of beauty. Not for nothing did my gay mate Chas refer to his first trip there just short of a week as The Six-Day Phwoar.
But of course Israel’s achievement goes far beyond the physical and the fiscal — in proportion to its population, it has the largest number of startup companies in the world. It is a beacon of enlightened light in a frankly wretched region which has a real problem with such outrageous concepts as equal rights for women and homosexuals. I believe that Islamofascism is the biggest threat to progress and pleasure since the Nazis stalked the earth and Israel fights it on the frontline for all of us. And regrettably, as antisemitism — “fresh’n’funky antisemitism” as I once called the new Left-wing, right-on brand — rises in Europe, Israel will be needed more than ever by the diaspora. 
In fact, there’s only one thing wrong with Israel — it’s not big enough. Never mind — next year in Samaria.

Remember When Michael Coren Used To Be On the Right?

Now Coren is questioning whether Jordan Peterson should be allowed to speak his mind, an indication of how totally Michael has succumbed to the Left's totalitarian impulse.

Oh, well. I guess it's hard for a conservative type to put bread on the table in a land where Ceeb-style leftism is considered the norm. (Hat tip: NDA)

"Schandlich!": Germany's Top Pop Music Prize Goes to a Pair of Jew-Hating Rappers

Found this one on The Local's "Germany" site:
The awarding of the most prestigious prize in German pop music to two rappers who made fun of Holocaust victims has been described by an influential Jewish organization as "a scandal."
At the annual Echo Awards on Thursday evening the rappers Kollegah and Farid Bang were awarded the best album award for their recent release “Jung, brutal und gutaussehend 3”.

For weeks, the fact that the two rappers had been nominated for the award had caused controversy in the German press due to their alleged anti-Semitism.

On the album, Farid Bang raps about his training regime, boasting that “my body is more defined than an Auschwitz prisoner’s.”

Kollegah has previously been accused of anti-Semitism due to a 2016 music video which appears to show a Jewish man at the head of a secretive global banking conspiracy...
"Gutaussehend," in case you were wondering, means "good-looking"--even though their "look" is as ugly as it gets.

Guess they meant it in an ironic sense.

At Least He Doesn't Mention "Islamophobia"

All in all, Justin Trudeau's statement re this year's Yom Hashoah is pretty sound. Much better, in fact, than a previous utterance on the the Holocaust.

The Left's Deft, Bereft Anti-Zionism

Ben Cohen unpacks it here:
In the West, while many centrist social democrats have been among the greatest friends of Israel and the Jewish people, the remainder of the left largely incorporated ideological hostilities reminiscent of the Soviet regime. When the “New Left” emerged in the 1960s, its libertarian suspicions of the repressive Soviet society didn’t prevent the adoption of a demonized view of Zionism straight out of the Soviet playbook; some of the movement’s graduates (in Germany, ironically) were even recruited by Palestinian terrorist groups to organize attacks on Jewish and Israeli targets. Meanwhile, in this century, the moderate centrist left, with some honorable exceptions, has been at best passive in the face of a virulent, Soviet-style campaign against “Zionism” that has involved boycotts, harassment and occasional violence not against the Israeli military or government, but directed at ordinary Jews in Western Europe, South Africa and North America.

This recent past matters because the present figureheads of the left are either in denial about it or, in some cases, actually complicit in it. In the United States, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has spoken out against the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, but he has never questioned whether a political movement whose core goal is to return Jews to the situation they faced in 1945 should be considered “progressive” in the first place. In France, the leader of the populist left, Jean-Luc Melenchon, is an enthusiastic advocate of boycotting Israel, declaring last week that the French Jewish leadership is composed of unpatriotic “communalists.” In Britain, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn on one day offers an assurance that anti-Semitism has no place in a party that has recorded more than 300 internal anti-Semitic incidents since 2015; the next, he attends a Passover Seder organized by a radical Jewish group that proudly excludes any Jews with basic sympathies for Israel (i.e., most of them) from its events.

At that same Seder, a modified “Haggadah” invited guests to pause and “consider how s**t the State of Israel is.” Such puerile obscenities are, sadly, the price of being accepted as a Jew on the far left. But as relevant history demonstrates, that’s not an aberration of our own time, but entirely consistent with the established patterns of the past.
Let us now consider how s**t much of the Left is. 

Their Own Private Abraham

Why Islam’s claim to Abraham creates—not solves—problems.

Kind of Nutty (Also Blind to the Holy War)

Canadian literary icon Margaret Atwood thinks Star Wars (you know, the George Lucas flick?) "caused 9/11."

Funny, I thought it was a product of Osama bin Laden's jihad ethos.

"Every Aspect of the Holocaust Had Been Anticipated By the Kishinev Pogrom"

A new book--Pogrom: Kishinev and the Tilt of History--debunks the myths and details the ramifications of the infamous 1903 attack. (One ramification that's not in the book: I sit here today because my great-grandparents--my mom's grandparents--left Kishinev in the wake of a second pogrom there in 1905. The town's police chief, a regular customer of my great-grandfather's small tobacconist shop, alerted him that the pogrom was about to happen, enabling the entire family, including a new-born baby, to hide until the trouble had passed and they could make their escape.)

 

The "Witty" Wordplay of Hamas On Campus (A.K.A. Students for Justice in Palestine)

"#Ashke-Nazi"--pretty damn "clever," no?

On a related note, it amuses me to no end that the first name of one of SJP's co-founders is "Hatem."

How perfect is that?

Civilizational Ennui and the Idealization of "The Other"

Not too surprisingly, they go together like a wink and a smile, and may well be catastrophic for Europe.

Come What May, the Brits Are Engendering Jihad and Jew-Hate

One often hears these days about the overt Jew-hatred of the UK's Labour Party and its leader Jeremy Corbyn. As execrable as that is, it conveys impression that, Theresa May's Conservatives, on the other hand, aren't as bad for the Jews.

But what if I were to tell you that, last year, May's government spent £20 million to help "educate" Palestinian moppets in the finer points of the ongoing jihad against the Jewish state? Isn't that as bad as--or even worse than--anything the Corbynites are doing?

Over on the Gatestone site, my favorite Brit, Douglas Murray, excoriates his country's government for pursing this hateful and shameful policy:
This past weekend it emerged that last year the British government funnelled £20 million to Palestinian schools. A review by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-se) found that these revenues go towards funding a curriculum which omits teaching peace, promotes the use of violence -- specifically jihad -- and encourages martyrdom. An analysis of the textbooks used in Palestinian schools funded by the UK government -- using UK taxpayers' money -- found that these textbooks, which come from the Palestinian Authority (PA), "exerts pressure over young Palestinians to acts of violence."
A science textbook intended for 12-year-olds, for example, teaches them Newton's second law of physics in the following way:
"During the first Palestinian uprising, Palestinian youths used slingshots to confront the soldiers of the Zionist Occupation and defend themselves from their treacherous bullets. What is the relationship between the elongation of the slingshot's rubber and the tensile strength affecting it?"
Another textbook, which is meant to be used for teaching arithmetic to 9-year-olds takes a highly local approach to the matter. Math lessons as provided by the PA -- courtesy of the UK government -- teach Palestinian children addition by asking them to calculate the number of "martyrs" in various Palestinian uprisings. 
Elsewhere, the study found that social studies books included images of children in their school rooms with an empty desk fitted with a sign reading "martyr". Repeatedly the textbooks refer to the "Occupation", to "Zionist Occupation", "Zionists" and much more, all of which perpetuates the notion that Israelis are "invaders" and "oppressors". In other words, these textbooks are clearly and consistently intended to indoctrinate a new generation of Palestinian children to hatred of their neighbours. Any government genuinely interested in promoting peace would withdraw funding from any entity -- wherever in the world it was -- which taught violence as such a core part of its curriculum. 
The British government, however, has long been strangely shameless when it comes to funding the Palestinian Authority. The British government, for instance, hides behind the claim that the PA's authorised textbooks for use in Palestinian schools have got better in recent years. In fact, this IMPACT-se report find precisely the opposite. Last year, the PA launched a much-vaunted new school curriculum for children in grades 5-11. Just last week the Minister of State for International Development, Alistair Burt, stated that "all of their [the PA's] schools in the West Bank are using the revised 2017 PA curriculum." 
The IMPACT-se investigation revealed, however, that "radicalization is pervasive across this new curriculum." And not just pervasive, but pervasive "to a greater extent than before." The study found that in textbooks which pretend to be teaching "equal rights'", girls are encouraged to sacrifice their lives. A textbook aimed at 5th grade children (that is, children aged 10) teaches that "drinking the cup of bitterness with glory is much sweeter than a pleasant long life accompanied by humiliation." Another textbook urges that "Giving one's life, sacrifice, fight, jihad and struggle are the most important meanings of life."...
It takes a special kind of blindness and a boneheadednes not to see that the jihad being fomented against Israel is identical to the one being waged against the UK and the rest of the West. 

Will the Brits will wake up anytime soon?

I doubt it. Not when it feels so good to lavish all that love on the poor, oppressed Palestinians--and all that obloquy on mean old victimizing Israel.

Bernie Sanders, "Progressive" Twit, Falls for Hamastan Propoganda

Jonathan S. Tobin documents the fall:
Was the Palestinian “March of Return” a propaganda success for Hamas? If you think Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is a reliable barometer of international opinion, then maybe the answer is “yes.”
On Sunday, Sanders — the former and possibly future Democratic presidential contender — illustrated the vast difference between the Trump administration and the left wing of the Democratic Party when he tweeted his support for the march, as well as his criticism of actions by the Israel Defense Forces at the border: “The killing of Palestinian demonstrators by Israeli forces in Gaza is tragic. It is the right of all people to protest for a better future without a violent response.”

As far as Israel’s critics are concerned, the Gaza march was a return to past Palestinian propaganda successes, in which the IDF could be accused of a “disproportionate” response to an attack. The more Palestinian corpses, the better for the Palestinian cause. And the worse for Israel as Western liberals, including many American Jews, shrink in horror from the tough tactics used by the Jewish state.

Sanders’s sentiments echoed those of others in the international community, such as France, which also issued a statement defending the Palestinians’ right to “peacefully demonstrate” and calling on Israel to show restraint. Had the Trump administration not vetoed a one-sided Security Council resolution calling on an investigation of Friday’s bloodshed at the Gaza border, the United Nations would also have handed a diplomatic victory to the Palestinians...
Dear Bernie, you Useful Idiot: the "better future" they're "protesting" for is one in which there's no Israel.

The CBC's Idea of "Fun" Is a Joyless, Overwrought Book Competition

I've been home sick all week with the mother-of-all-colds and have been listening off and on to Canada Reads. It's an annual event that aims to identify the one book that every Canadian should read because it will change your life and/or the planet in a positive and progressive way.

Here, for instance, is a description of one of the books in the running this year, The Marrow Thieves:
Humanity has nearly destroyed its world through global warming, but now an even greater evil lurks. The Indigenous people of North America are being hunted and harvested for their bone marrow, which carries the key to recovering something the rest of the population has lost: the ability to dream.

In this dark world, Frenchie and his companions struggle to survive as they make their way up north to the old lands. For now, survival means staying hidden. But what they don't know is that one of them holds the secret to defeating the marrow thieves.
Climate change; natives being victimized by eee-ville non-indigenes; suffering; death: I can't think of another novel that is more up the Ceeb's sanctimonious alley.

Except, perhaps, for this one:
Sarat Chestnut, born in Louisiana, is only six when the Second American Civil War breaks out in 2074. But even she knows that oil is outlawed, that Louisiana is half underwater, that unmanned drones fill the sky.

And when her father is killed and her family is forced into Camp Patience for displaced persons, she quickly begins to be shaped by her particular time and place until, finally, through the influence of a mysterious functionary, she is turned into a deadly instrument of war.

Telling her story is her nephew, Benjamin Chestnut, born during war as one of the Miraculous Generation and now an old man confronting the dark secret of his past — his family's role in the conflict and, in particular, that of his aunt, a woman who saved his life while destroying untold others.
Nope. Not going to read that one, either, even if it "wins."

Justin Trudeau Boasts About His "Transparency"

Yeah, he's so transparent that he bathes in Windex.

Why, he's a regular Mr. Cellophane.

Bad Judgment In the UK

In sentencing a "youth" who tried--and, luckily, failed--to blow up infidels on the London subway during the height of rush hour, a UK judge made this daft and fundamentally unsound pronouncement:
Finally, Ahmed Hassan, let me say this to you. You will have plenty of time to study the Qur'an in prison in the years to come. You should understand that the Qur'an is a book of peace; Islam is a religion of peace. The Qur'an and Islam forbid anything extreme, including extremism in religion. Islam forbids breaking the "law of the land" where one is living or is a guest. Islam forbids terrorism (hiraba). The Qur'an and the Sunna provide that the crime of perpetrating terror to "cause corruption in the land" is one of the most severe crimes in Islam. So it is in the law of the United Kingdom. You have, therefore, received the most severe of sentences under the law of this land. You have violated the Qur'an and Islam by your actions, as well as the law of all civilized people. It is to be hoped that you will come to realise this one day. Please go with the officers.
Douglas Murray has nothing but derision for these words. He writes:
First, what business is it of a judge to make such a statement? Why should Mr Justice Haddon-Cave think that being a judge in a British court also permits him to expound on Islamic theology? And what if he is wrong in his theological pronouncements? What if it is not the case that Islam "forbids anything extreme"? What if a lot of British subjects who are not Muslims discover that this judge is telling an untruth? What if he is wrong, and that the cure for a jihadist like Ahmed Hassan is not in fact confinement with the Quran and Sunna?

Mr Justice Haddon-Cave seems almost to suggest that "violating" the law of the Quran and Islam is an offense in itself -- one worth noting alongside the crime of putting a bomb on a packed commuter train. That his pronouncement was superfluous is obvious. That it is incorrect is at least equally so. But worst is that it will further erode the belief of the citizenry in their lawmakers.
Murray gets it. Mr Justice Haddon-Cave...not so much. In fact, not at all.

Limerick For Lauder

A professional Jew named R. Lauder
Has ideas that do not hold wauder.

Won't elicit assent
And would probably lead to mass slaughder.

If that's not enough for you, there's this.

Exemplifiying the Wimpitude of His Kind, Justin Trudeau "Exonerates" Indigenous Chiefs Implicated in 150 Year Old Murders

Justin genuflects to the gods of political correctness--again:
OTTAWA - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is set to exonerate six First Nations chiefs who were executed by British Columbia's colonial government more than 150 years ago.

Trudeau's itinerary says he will "deliver a statement of exoneration" for the Tsilhqot'in chiefs in the House of Commons at 3 p.m.

The warriors were hanged following a deadly confrontation with white road builders during the so-called "Chilcotin War of 1864."

After the workers were killed, five chiefs arrived at what they believed would be peace talks with government representatives. Instead, they were arrested, tried and hanged, and a sixth chief was executed the following year in New Westminster.

The Tsilhqot'in have long disputed the government's authority to execute the six chiefs as criminals, describing the confrontation as an altercation between warring nations...
Very interesting. Over on Wikipedia, however, it doesn't sound like "an altercation" as much as it does a horrific mass murder of whites by natives:
n 1862, Alfred Waddington began lobbying the press and his political allies for support to a wagon road from Bute Inlet to Fort Alexandria where it would connect to the Cariboo Road and continue on to the goldfields at Barkerville.[3] He received approval for the construction early in 1863. According to Waddington, it would reduce land travel from 359 miles to 185 miles and the total days consumed in packing freight from 37 days to 22 compared to the Yale-Fraser Canyon route known as the Cariboo Road favoured by Governor Douglas. The Bute Inlet Wagon Road was to follow the Homathko River valley from the mouth of Bute Inlet and then swing northeast across the Chilcotin Plateau to join the Bentinck Arm Trail at Puntzi Lake and the mouth of the Quesnel River. It was also one of the routes considered and advocated by Waddington for the transcontinental railway eventually constructed to what became Vancouver instead.[4]:192

Construction had been underway for two years when, on April 29, 1864 a ferryman, Timothy Smith, stationed 30 miles up the river was killed after refusing a demand from Klattasine, Tellot and other natives for food. Smith was shot and his body thrown into the river. The food stores and supplies were looted. A half ton of provisions were taken.[5] The following day the natives attacked the workers' camp at daylight. Three men, Peterson Dane, Edwin Moseley and a man named Buckley, though injured, escaped and fled down the river. The remaining crew were killed and their bodies thrown into the river.[6]

Four miles further up the trail, the band came upon the foreman, William Brewster, and three of his men blazing trail. All were killed. Brewster's body was mutilated and left. The others' bodies were thrown into the river. The band also killed William Manning, a settler at Puntzi Lake.[4]:192

A pack train led by Alexander McDonald, though warned, continued into the area and three of the drivers were killed in the ensuing ambush.[4]:192 In all, nineteen men were killd.
Who is Justin Trudeau to "exonerate" those responsible for such brutal acts in a bid to revise history to conform to current notions of "truth and reconciliation" (both of which are quite impossible when one is committed to telling lies about the past)?

"She Defended Eichmann To Defend Heidegger"

Exactamundo.

That statement of fact (you'll find it here) is the most succinct and spot on analysis/indictment of Hannah Arendt's Eichmann In Jerusalem I have ever read.

Nikki Haley Slams the "Foolish" UN "Human Rights" Council for Passing 5 Resolutions Criticizing Israel (And Only 1 Each Criticial of Syria, North Korea and Iran)

As the beclowning body sees it, Israel is five times as bad as the worst of the world's worst, a mindset which UN ambassador Haley (by far the brightest spot of Trump's revolving door administration) rightly condemns.

Man, I hope this new play comes to Toronto--and pronto.

Romantic Primitivism Rears Its Head at the UN as Indigenous Canadian Teen Calls for Water to Be Given "Human Rights"

The 13-year-old wants us to accord "human rights" to water. As in H2O. Which is an inanimate substance and not, I repeat, not a person:
It's time to "warrior up," stop polluting the planet and give water the same rights and protections as human beings. That's the message Autumn Peltier, a 13-year-old Canadian, delivered personally to the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday.

"Many people don't think water is alive or has a spirit," she told the diplomats gathered in New York City in her speech on World Water Day. "My people believe this to be true.

"Our water deserves to be treated as human with human rights. We need to acknowledge our waters with personhood so we can protect our waters," Peltier said, her five-foot frame standing on a stool behind the podium so she could reach the microphone.

The teenager from Manitoulin Island on Georgian Bay was invited as the "representative of civil society," joining UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and other international dignitaries for the launch the UN's International Decade for Action on Water for Sustainable Development.

The campaign by member states aims to better manage and preserve world water resources. 
By all means, let's be good stewards of the planet and pollute it as little as is humanly possible. At the same time, though, let's not succumb to sheer silliness merely because of the age and provenance of the individual who uttered it.

Major New Study Reveals That Jew-Hate Is Becoming Mainstream In the U.K.

Consider me not at all gobsmacked by the report's findings. After all, with the BBC, other highly influential media outlets and elites in academia and the political sphere thundering on almost daily about Israel's "moral crimes" (including the worst one of all, the "crime" of its existence on land claimed in perpetuity by the Palestinians, the group which claims Most Favoured Victim status in the U.K. and the EU), and with a large and growing population of Muslim voters to pander to--one would be shocked if Judenhass/Zionhass wasn't all the rage there.

"The Deportation of Al-Yamimi Has Now Spanned the Terms of Six Prime Ministers"

And given the abject fecklessness of Canada's deportation system, there's no reason to believe his ouster (or, rather, non-ouster) won't outlast another P.M. or two.

Robin Williams' "Adorable" Sexual Harrassment Antics

No, he didn't drug anyone. Nor, as far as I know, did he ever pull a Weinstein and share his, um, seed, with a potted plant. That said, his M.O. doesn't really sound all that "adorable," even if "it was the Seventies":
In a new book about the actor’s life titled Robin, the former actress, 66, said Williams was “such a nice person” who had a “gigantic heart,” according to excerpts obtained by The Daily Mail.
“I really loved Robin and Robin really loved me. We just clicked,” she reportedly said in the upcoming biography.
However, Dawber also opened up about Williams’ alleged sexual behavior on the show, which helped skyrocket the actor to fame. “I had the grossest things done to me by him. And I never took offense,” she reportedly said. “I mean I was flashed, humped, bumped, grabbed. I think he probably did it to a lot of people … but it was so much fun.”
Dawber added, “Somehow he had that magic. If you put it on paper you would be appalled. But somehow he had this guileless little thing that he would do – those sparkly eyes. He’d look at you, really playful, like a puppy, all of a sudden. And then he’d grab your t*** and then run away. And somehow he could get away with it. It was the Seventies, after all.”
Mork & Mindy producer Howard Storm, who was also interviewed for the [new biographical] book, reportedly said, “He’d be doing a paragraph and in the middle of it he would just turn and grab her a** . Or grab a br***t. And we’d start again.”

Storm allegedly added, “It was just Robin being Robin, and he thought it would be funny. He could get away with murder.”

Garry Marshall, another producer, reportedly said that it was Williams’ mission to embarrass Dawber on set: “He would take all his clothes off, he would be standing there totally naked and she was trying to act. His aim in life was to make Pam Dawber blush.”
"It was the Seventies, after all": somehow, I don't think Harvey's attorneys will be able to make use of that one (Weinstein, after all, being nowhere near as "guileless" and "magical"--and dead--as Mork).

Justin Trudeau's "Service Canada" Banishes Male 'n' Female

As Justin and the other Trudeaupians see it, gender is merely an artificial social construct that must--must!--be killed off in the name of all that is good and fair and just. Service Canada, apparently, is in the process of doing just that.

What, you may well ask, is Service Canada? According to Wikipedia, it's
part of a Government of Canada-wide service transformation initiative aimed at responding to Canadians' expressed desire for better, more responsive, less cluttered service from Canadian governments. The initiative seeks to do this by improving the design and delivery of government programs and services to Canadians.
Up to now, that delivery included addressing Canadians by such titles as Mr., Mrs. or Ms. But that, I'm sure you will be not at all relieved to know, has now changed:
Service Canada employees who interact with the public are being asked to stay away from terms like Mr., Mrs., father and mother, and to use gender-neutral terms in their place, CBC News has learned.

According to documents obtained by Radio Canada, the French-language arm of CBC, front-line staff must now "use gender-neutral language or gender-inclusive language."

"This avoids portraying a perceived bias toward a particular sex or gender," says a copy of speaking notes prepared for managers and team leaders.

"It is important that Service Canada, as an organization, reflects Canada's diverse population and ensures that the views and interests of Canadians are taken into account when we develop policies, programs, services and initiatives," says the directive.

The new guidelines also rule out using terms such as mother and father because they are "gender specific" and instead says the neutral term of "parent" should be used instead.

The same goes for honorifics such as Mr., Mrs., and Ms. and in both languages. Instead, employees are being directed to address customers by their full names or ask them what they want to be called...
Me? I'd like to be called Xena, Warrior Princess.

Is that okay with you, Service Canada?

A Song For Louis the Lunatic (and His Lefty Fans)

What accounts for the way some Democrats--including Saint Barack--have no problem hanging out with a man whose racist views are entirely in synch with Adolf Hitler's? Mark Steyn takes a crack at explaining the bizarre behavior (of "Minister" Farrakhan and those inclined to schmooze with him) here. (Er, since he's the leader of an outré Islamic sect, shouldn't he be called "imam"?)

Steyn also mentions that, way back when, the NOI nut job was a regular Harry Belafonte.

Well, maybe not a full-fledged Belafonte, but definitely a Belafonte wannabe whose showbiz name, hilariously, was "The Charmer."

That said, he was never a threat to the King of Calypso, whose mellowest hit has now been 'mouched:

Down the way you can hear him bray
That "the Joooos" are evil and they're doin' harm.
Some Democrats who are lousy rats
They have convinced themselves the man is full of charm.

And they're glad to stay near Louis. Hey,
He is a leader with great caché.
He's a con man; he's got a terrible plan.
There is no worse a Jew-detester than Farrakhan.

Down the market you can hear
Louis cry out, lie and acting like a douche.
Although he claim to be like MLK
He is spiteful, dangerous and very louche.

But
they're glad to stay near Louis. Hey,

He is a leader with great caché.
He's a con man; he's got a terrible plan.
There is no worse a Jew-detester than Farrakhan.

Why Would Two RCMP Officers Collapse During a Trudeau Speech?

Was it due to the stress of having to stand at attention for so long? Perhaps. I contend, however, that it was an involuntary physical reaction to having to listen to our drama queen of a prime minister and his snoozeroo utterances for more than five minutes.

The NYT Poses an Utterly Disingenuous Question

To wit: Why Is Louis Farrakhan Back in the News?

There are only three reasons why Farrakhan would be back in the news, ones that should be obvious to anyone familiar with the man and his M.O.:
  1. He no longer has a pulse
  2. He's launched another "Million Man March"
  3. He's a-spewin' about and a-hatin' on "the Jooooos" again.

Not a Good Move: Sleeping With Your Stalker

I thought it was pretty farfetched when Matt LeBlanc, playing a version of himself, did just that on his TV series Episodes, but Colin Firth's Missus shows us that, in fact, such a scenario is entirely plausible.

The Ultimate In Virtue Signaling

Canada's new $10 bill shows the visage of Viola Desmond (she was Canada's Rosa Parks, apparently) along with 
an image of Winnipeg's Canadian Museum of Human Rights, as well as part of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
That's so you'll feel extra-good about yourself when shelling out all the moolah (lots and lots and lots of tens) purloined by the spendaholic Trudeau government.

FYI: I Won't Be Blogging For the Next Few Days...

We're in the process of packing up and moving back to our house (which has been undergoing a lengthy renovation, now mostly completed). I hope to be back at the old keyboard soon--but can't say exactly when that will be.

It's Offical. This Year's Oscars Set To Be Yet Another Sanctimony-Riddled, Finger-Waggling Snoozeroo

Remember back when the Oscars were fun?

No? Neither do I, frankly. But there was a time, not all that long ago, when the show wasn't as insufferably preachy and self-righteous as it is today. When, say, host Billy Crystal briefly impersonated Hannibal Lecter, or Rob Lowe opened the show with a helium-voiced Snow White, neither of whom were much good at the singing and dancing they were called on to perform. Here, alas, is what's in store tonight:
In a nod to #MeToo and the Time's Up movement, Laura Dern and Ashley Judd will also be front and centre as presenters. Both have spoken out as survivors of sexual harassment and assault: Judd was one of the first to speak out publicly about allegations against Weinstein.

Time's Up organizers also say they are working with the Academy to find space to mark the movement at the Oscars.

And as Marvel Studios' Black Panther continues to shatter records, the king of Wakanda himself (actor Chadwick Boseman) will be presenting, as will Oscar-winning co-star Lupita Nyong'o.

While this year's presenter list emphasizes attempts to diversify by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the returning Oscars ringmaster is Jimmy Kimmel, who presided over the best-picture mix-up that saw Moonlight eventually win last year.
Sounds pretty grim, no? And about as much fun as a plate of cold mashed potatoes.
