Like most sane, rational people, I have a problem with virtue signaling politicians. In the wake of George Floyd’s death while being arrested by Minneapolis police, politician after politician have joined the mob to proclaim we are all racists, that “white silence is violence” and that the police must be disbanded or at the very… Continue reading Proclaiming we are all racists while real slavery still exists in Africa, Asia true hypocrisy
In the febrile mind of the Black Lives Matter protester, the police are agents of slave owners and white supremacy. Thus the call for the dismantling of police forces and their replacement with social workers. As BLM sees it, the issue is that laws exists that criminalize behavior and activities which then require police intervention… Continue reading Defund the police? It would be so much easier to just get rid of bad cops
How the Left believes we can defund the police and still have rule of law is beyond me. Yet here we are with politician after politician taking a knee to the Black Lives Matter protesters, supplicating themselves and nodding their heads in agreement. The cynic in me believes that the supplications we see are little… Continue reading Defund the police? Have liberal politicians truly lost their minds?
Let’s talk about racism against indigenous people in Canada. Canadians have been taking to the streets to protest racism in the country.

Wokeness is the new religion. It has its high priests and priestesses. It has its orthodoxy. It has its punishment for heresy. Wokeness decrees that the West, but America in particular, is racist to its core, that white supremacy is the root of all evil, that capitalism is destroying the planet, that people of color… Continue reading Wokeness is literally all the rage, but it is fundamentally a harsh religion

So dire a threat was the virus that governments at all levels… Continue reading If it weren’t for conflicting princples, the chattering class would have none at all
In 1968, Lyndon Banes Johnson was president. Martin Luther King had been assassinated. Riots had broken out across America. The 1960s were a tumultuous time in America and culminated in the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders. It was better known at the time as the Kerner Commission and it was appointed by Johnson to… Continue reading Progress for blacks in US has been fitful under liberal leadership. Odd, no?
With the widespread protesting and rioting all across the Western world in the wake of the George Floyd death while being arrested by police, the evident belief is that if only we were less racist, these lethal encounters would not happen. Is it true though? Racism, to be sure, is an ugly thing. Judging anyone… Continue reading Lamenting racism in police brutality will never solve the underlying problem
Widespread rioting across the United States in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis underlines deep racial divides, but most commentators again fail to grasp the real failures at the heart of these deaths. There is no doubt Floyd’s death was tragic. He was arrested on suspicion of trying to pass counterfeit money. He… Continue reading Riots are the failure of elected officials to effect real change in how arrests are made
In Canada, the public has selective hearing. People choose what to believe even if the facts run counter to those beliefs. For example, few people know, let alone understand, the devastating effect the Trudeau government’s decision to cancel the Northern Gateway pipeline in 2017 had on indigenous communities. What they think they know comes comes… Continue reading Why do we choose to ignore the voices of indigenous people who support resource development?
