Way back in 2007, Vancouver journalist Terry O’Neill, former editor of the Western Report magazine—and, until his success in municipal politics, a co-host at RoadKill Radio—wrote an Op-Ed for the National Post that called for ‘human rights’ legislation to be drastically altered, to prevent such tribunals from behaving like ‘Star Chamber’ inquisitions and trampling on Canadians’ rights of free speech, freedom of opinion and expression, and freedom of religion.

We urgently need masses of Canadians to endorse Mr. O’Neill’s call for protection of our rights. NOW! How? Write or phone your MP!

In 1857, American anti-slavery activist Frederick Douglass warned:

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”

But wait. Aren’t words like “tyrants” and “oppression” a bit too strong for a constitutional democracy like Canada?

As Jonah Goldberg points out in his book Liberal Fascism, it has long been understood that when fascism inevitably comes to the democracies of the West, it will come as a smiley-faced, “nice” fascism, full of good intentions.

So who will bell the cat? Who will make the HRCs and judges keep to their proper spheres? It must be the people; and to do it, we must start electing MPs who are willing to endure the media’s scorn to defend the freedoms for which earlier generations were willing to risk their very lives

So how do you take up arms and become a freedom fighter? It’s not hard: you write to your MP—or better, visit him or her at the constituency office you pay for—and tell them that this is a “make-or-break” issue for you, when the next election rolls around—say that it will definitely determine how your vote. Then, when the next election is called, be as good as your word: ask each candidate to commit to your personal list of “wedge” issues: right to life, defending normal marriage, protecting freedom of expression. And if you can’t find a candidate who is willing to commit to defending your freedom, spoil your ballot.

The essence of democracy is that all public business, including justice (indeed, especially justice), must be done in the open, where nothing can be hidden. That’s the reasoning behind “freedom of the press” in Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms: the news media are supposed to be the eyes and ears of the public.

But what happens when those eyes and ears are captured by propagandists? Then the public is rendered blind and deaf to important facts that affect their lives and their families; they can easily be duped, and robbed blind.

And that is exactly what has happened, alas, all over Canada!

Consider the close links that have been forged between the so-called “mainstream media” (what RoadKill Radio.com calls “the downstream media”) and militant ‘gay’ activists and propagandists.

Do the media ever show the blatant nudity and pornographic displays that mark “Gay Pride” parades? Do they ever ask whether school projects by militant ‘gay’ activists might be harmful to children?

No. And why not?

Perhaps it’s because the sponsors of the parades include the media themselves: CBC, CTV, Global TV, The Beat (94.5 FM) 24 Hours, KVOS-TV, CKNW, Co-op Radio, the Tyee, AM 730, CITR (101.9 FM), The Vancouver Courier and The West Ender are all sponsors, alongside Viagra and Trojan condoms, of Vancouver’s Pride Parade.

And major advertising accounts vital to the economic survival of all major media, like the Vancouver Sun and Province, include “Gay Pride” sponsors like VanCity and Coast Capital credit unions; Home Depot; TD, Royal and CIBC banks; Safeway, Mariott, Holiday Inn Hotels and Sandman Hotels. Volunteer sponsors include The Real Canadian Superstore and Pacific Centre.

When the media and their big advertisers are so closely tied to “Pride” events, how can their audience trust their “news” reports about such events? Would they ever expose the corruption in own pet projects and those of the advertisers on whom their survival depends?

To ask the question is to answer it.

The huge, multimillion-dollar homosexual propaganda apparatus (Pride Parades, Pride Education Network, the Queer Film Festival, Out in Schools, EGALE) and the media—the so-called “eyes and ears” of the public—are all huddled together under one blanket; and so the public is kept in the dark.

Perhaps that’s why, when the National Post recently ran two full-page ads paid for by the Institute for Canadian Values (see below), just a few days later the Post ran a Page 2 “apology”, and said they would donate the proceeds of those two ads to “gay rights” organizations.

An apology for what? For allowing a citizens’ organization to tell the public the truth? Since when does a “news” medium need to apologize for that?

Indeed, the Post should have apologized for waiting until an educational organization, supported by private donations, exposed the draconian, fascist brainwashing of students who are a captive audience in the public schools. That’s the job of the news desk, not the advertising department!

But in Canada, the “news” media have long since stopped doing the job that earns them “freedom of the press”. And our press, bound by golden shackles, is no longer free—or trustworthy.

By Terry O’Neill in The National Post Jun 23, 2011

It has been a good week to be a psychologist, criminologist or sociologist in B.C., as quote-seeking reporters and columnists scoured the academic countryside looking for insights, observations, theories, explanations and opinions about all things to do with Vancouver’s Stanley Cup riot. Disappointingly, however, their responses invariably fell short of being truly illuminating.

Even some of the rioters and looters themselves have turned to the usual lineup of deep thinkers to help them explain why they did what they did during that infamous night.

This, in fact, is exactly the strategy one university student embraced in a now-notorious essay she posted online in an attempt to apologize for her looting of a men’s wear store. Parroting many of the experts — and, indeed, actually quoting a few of them — Camille Cacnio described how an allegedly conscience-numbing combination of alcohol and adrenaline caused her to steal two pairs of pants, which she said she took as souvenirs of the evening’s events.

As noted in Wednesday’s National Post, Cacnio’s original, 3,000-word-long mea culpa declared, “I had no intentions of defiling the city … But in my immature, intoxicated perspective all I saw was that the riot was happening, and would continue happening with or without me, so I might as well get my adrenaline fix.”

Statements like that led many online critics to blast Cacnio for attempting to rationalize or even justify her actions, and she subsequently posted a far-shorter, more straightforward apology in response.

Nevertheless, her original tract remains accessible. This is undoubtedly good news for students of human nature, because the document provides some important insights into the destructive riot and, in doing so, also inadvertently rebuts facile rationalizations about its causes.

Facile, because a great many experts, such as Christopher Schneider, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of British Columbia (who was, in fact, quoted by Cacnio), concentrated their ruminations on explanations relating to “mob mentality.”

Regrettably, however, few ventured into the more complex and potentially more revealing territory of personal conscience and responsibility. This omission inevitably led casual observers to conclude that many of the rioters were little more than biological machines that reacted in strange and dangerous ways to the stimuli of the night: the bitter disappointment or anger over the Canucks’ game seven loss, the booze and the adrenaline.

Insights and observations about the role of free will, individual choice and ethical action were difficult to find, even though it is clear that a great many fans, who were subjected to exactly the same stimuli as Cacnio and the other rioters and looters, did not join the mayhem.

What could explain dissimilar responses to similar stimuli? Ironically, Cacnio herself provides a clue in a passage in which she attempts to persuade the reader that she is a “good person.”

She writes: “As many of you already know, I am majoring in Conservation Biology at UBC. I strongly believe in ecological conservation and sustainability. That night [the night of the riot], I saw a few people that were trying to knock trees down. So what did I do? I yelled at them, saying ‘Pleaaseee [sic], not the trees!!!!’ And what did they do? They stopped. And I felt like a hero.”

What Cacnio is telling us, then, is that, on a night in which she says she was so jumped up with adrenaline and booze that she found looting a store to be a perfectly rational thing to do, she was also morally aware and clear-headed enough to put her love of the natural world into action by saving some trees.

Something doesn’t add up. She can’t have it both ways, just as the experts’ musing about the effects of stimuli on the rioters doesn’t explain how the same stimuli can leave so many people unaffected.

Clearly, there’s an element missing in Cacnio’s self-analysis and the experts’ cogitations, and that’s the role that one’s moral standards play in determining one’s actions. Cacnio’s strong convictions relating to the environment allowed her to overcome the otherwise conscience-numbing effects of the evening’s stimuli and to make the “right” decision about saving trees.

Similarly, it can be speculated that the majority of the fans were able to resist the temptation to join in the mayhem because of their moral convictions about such things as responsible action and the value of personal property. Conversely, it can also be said that those with less-well-formed moral character succumbed to the stimuli.

Ultimately, then, participation in the riot was a matter of free will. Some chose to do evil. Thankfully, however, a great many chose to do good.

What’s a family?

Does “gender” matter?

RoadKill Radio and National Post columnist Barbara Kay teamed up Tuesday night to answer those important questions.

The first guests on the provocative weekly Internet public affairs radio show were the parents of a pre-born child that the BC Ministry of Children and Families was waiting to snatch as she emerged from the womb. The parents—a Salmon Arm, BC couple who had come to the Lower Mainland to escape the clutches of the Ministry—had in their possession a letter that affirmed them as loving parents; but it also chastised them for their reluctance to cooperate with the Ministry in making plans for their children!

The question that emerges: whose children are they?

The family—whose surname is being withheld to protect the children—is under assault by the Ministry because the mother and father refuse to accept the sovereignty of the provincial ministry over their private lives.

One 18-month-old son was apprehended by the Ministry at birth—even before his mother could nurse him.

Special Bulletin: They did it again!

The couple’s second baby has now been kidnapped at birth. In late afternoon, June 5, 2011 – as this edition of RKR News was being prepared – at the Royal Columbian Hospital in Burnaby, BC, Ministry officials once again overextended their moral and legal rights and kidnapped a baby from these poor victims of the corrupt system. The father and paternal grandparents were escorted out of the hospital by Burnaby RCMP.

Stay tuned for further updates on this tragedy.

~~~~~~~~~~

In a later item on this week’s broadcast, National Post columnist Barbara Kay, citing last week’s news story about a Toronto family that has chosen to conceal their third child’s gender—allowing baby Storm to choose his/her gender later in life—noted that gender identity is a reality, not a political construct, as the Toronto parents seem to assume.

Commented RoadKill Radio co-host Kari Simpson: “I knew, before I read the story, that one of the parents [must be] a teacher—and a teacher of a ‘Social Justice’ curriculum.”

Barbara Kay added: “It’s a very feminized world out there. This little boy… who says his favourite book is 10,000 Dresses… where would you even find a book like that? Is he exposed to Bob the Builder, or soldier books, or adventure books where manly courage is involved? I think he’s not even being exposed to stories where standardized masculine practices are involved; the things he’s being exposed to are stereotypically female.”

Kari Simpson: “With a father who’s a Social Justice teacher… [who] thinks it’s obnoxious to make decisions for children.”

~~~~~~~~~~

Another story that broke this week was the May 27, 2011 decision handed down by the Supreme Court of Canada that, essentially, removes free will from a citizen under special circumstances. In this case, a woman willingly allowed herself to relinquish consciousness in the consensual sex act of erotic asphyxiation – something she and her partner had done on repeated prior occasions – only to have the Supreme Court come along and stick its nose into the couples’ bedroom. The 6-3 decision ruled that unconsciousness negates any consent, that “yes” means “no”, and therefore the man committed a sex crime.

Considering the typical slippery slope of such radical legal decisions, the Court has essentially criminalized waking your wife with a good morning kiss, and snuggling with your dozing boyfriend.
