The 'Canceling' Episode - Thoughts on the George Floyd incident and the consequences
The death of George Floyd was tragic and horrific and the outpouring of outrage justified. So where was this anger when Tony Timpa died in exactly the same way? Why is Black Lives Matter silent over the death of retired police captain David Dorn at the hands of looters and so many others? What kind of sick and depraved individual takes video of Dorn's death and uploads it to Facebook Live instead of rendering aid? Some people may not like what I have to say, but it has to be said. We need real conversations, and BLM is not at all interested. I'm angry too. But I have some pointed questions for those who buy the narrative BLM is selling.

Assisted dying news, BC court sides with father and orders children be vaccinated over mother's objections, and MORE!
I was loath to edit this one. The audio on my side took a lot of work to correct because of some glitch in the audio chain, but I think it came out well in the end. The volume was all over the place and I had to take the time to go through it and alter the volume envelope. Better late than never! For Feb 6, 2020... Assisted dying news - Justice Minister David Lametti to table new legislation expanding access to medical assistance in dying; Catholic authority predictably plays the fear card; a British Columbia hospice refuses to comply with MAID poloicy; BC court sides with father and orders children to be vaccinated over mother's objections.

Infestation of woke culture in entertainment
It's been a while, but we're back!The topic du jour has been welling up inside me for some time and I need to get this rant out. We'll have a look at how our entertainment has been hijacked by those who want to use it as a propaganda tool for their political agendas, starting patient zero (Ghostbusters 2016) and ending with some truly spectacular failures. And of course men are to blame for poor box office showings.Seriously. They actually say this.And movies like Joker and Ford v Ferrari can't be allowed to do well at the box office or at major film award events.We will finish the discussion with one of the most godawrful shows - nay! THE worst thing on any medium.In other news, in a BC court a judge has sided with a father who wished his children to be vaccinated over the mother's objections.An anti-choice student group at the University of Alberta claiming its free speech was suppressed by being forced to pay an exorbitant amount for security at an event has won in court.The federal government is in the process of fixing the mess Jody Wilson-Raybould left MAID legislation in and wants your input.

Attacks in Sri Lanka, Cockroach visits Winnipeg, more Brunei stoning penalty stuff, and MORE!
For Episode 255, April 28, 2019: Eye on Islam... Of course we'll talk about the Islamist attacks in Sri Lanka. Linda "Cockroach" Sarsour was invited to speak in Winnipeg, but the city's mayor Brian Bowman is demanding she be disinvited. The Sadistic Sultan of Brunei defends signing the death penalty by stoning for homosexuality and adultery into law against its European critics, writing that there is a high bar for finding someone guilty. Cuz yeah. That's what the problem is, not that these are considered crimes in the first place. Writing in the Guardian, Owen Jones makes a plea to the Muslim community to band together to fight the far right which threatens The Regressive Left Files... What's this? An American college where students engage in discourse with someone they disagree with? How dare they! After Middlebury College cancelled an event mere hours before Charles Murray was scheduled to speak, one class quietly decided to invite him and engage his ideas. Wow. What a concept! At Sartoga Springs High School parents were up in arms about an assignment wherein students calculated their privilege, as if a single number could sum up anyone's life experiences. Victimhood culture poisons everything, just like religion. Catholic Watch... Easter has come and gone for another year. Pope denounces the "glitter of wealth" in front of giant gold-guilded candle inside of opulent St. Peter's Basilica, designed to project the Church's power and wealth, not to mention the favor of God. No one has ever accused the Vatican of a good sense of self awareness. Meanwhile, non-Roman Catholic catholic churches are on the rise in the US. I wonder why? New Jersey governor Phil Murphy signed a bill into law allowing medical assistance in dying in that state. This despite his Catholic beliefs and the protestations of bishops. Yes, Virginia, it is possible to act in the best interests of all despite one's personal beliefs. A Philadelphia court ruled against the archdiocese who took the city to court over its refusal to renew a contract to place children in foster care. Why? The Catholic Social Services refused even in principle placing foster children with same-sex couples. One question - why the hell is Catholic Social Services a thing? Quack Tracts... The current measles crisis is the worst outbreak in 25 years. Thanks, Obama!

Atheists are the REAL X-Men, Pope fights abuse in spiritual combat, "Woke" nonsense, Brunei legislat
Episode 254, for April 7, 2019.... A paper published Evolutionary Psychological Science claims atheists are really X-Men! (X-Men? Not very woke, is it?) The Regressive Left Files... Speaking of "woke"... New York Times op piece "I broke up with her because she's white" - how being woke is a barrier to interracial relationships. We comment on the Jussie Smollett debacle... Quebec government tables a bill banning public employees from wearing religious symbols. At least this time they moved the crucifix from the Quebec National Assembly... A quickly-retitled Forbes piece originally called "What if 'toxic masculinity' is the reason for climate change". Quack Tracts... Journalist Heather Yourex-West (Global News) takes a look a the pockets of regions of low vaccination rates. Meanwhile... The British Columbia government has been funding an anti-vaccination group called Health Action Network Society for over a decade to the tune of nearly half a million dollars. New York county has taken the unusual step of banning minors from public places to stem the tide of a recent measles outbreak. Catholic Watch... Pope Frances claims the fight against the pedophilia rampant amongst clerics involves 'spiritual combat'. Eye on Islam... The Barbaric Sultanate of Brunei has made homosexuality and adultery punishable by stoning. We comment on an NBC News report on atheists in Iraq and the oppression they face. Ahmed Bhamji, chairman of the Mt Roskill Masjid E Umar mosque in Aukland, claims the Christchurch shooting was a Zionist plot. Masih Alinejad publicly calls out so-called feminists who wear hijabs in solidarity with Muslim women. We look at this in light of a recent tweet by Rep. Ilhan Omar. We also look at several assistance in dying stories, from Spain to Toronto.

New Zealand hate crime and reaciton, Proactive vaccination strategies, More Catholic scandal
The elephant in the room... We look at the horrific hate crime in New Zealand. This was a heinous act. But the reaction of the regressive left won't leave it alone, and we look at some of the reactions indicative of what Gad Saad has called "collective munchausen syndrome". Catholic Watch The state of West Virginia is suing a diocese, charging they knowingly employed pedophile priests. Alain de la Morandais demonstrates his pedophilic propensities and child molestation apologetics on a French television program. Pope Francis says corruption is a devastating cancer harming society. He should know, as head of the world's largest organization of corruption. A poll taken in the US suggests more than an third of Catholics are questioning their membership. What the hell does the Church have to do before they finally leave? Quack Tracts... The Calgary Health Region has set up a "vaccine hesitancy clinic" whose goal is to convince parents on the fence to get their children vaccinated. In the face of a recent measles warning, at least one clinic in Calgary has asked that parents not bring their unvaccinated children. A father of three young boys with a rare genetic disorder which compromises their immune systems makes an appeal to Albertans to vaccinate. Meanwhile, physicians are urging Health Canada to take action against the sale of homeopathic vaccine "alternatives". Eye on Islam... A human rights lawyer in Iran has been sentenced to 33 years in prison and 148 lashes. Nasrin Sotoudeh is well known for defending women who dared to show their hair in public. Her crime? "Gathering and colluding to commit crimes against national security" and "insulting the Supreme Leader".

Cardinal Pell in prison, Homeopathy 'aid' group defunded, NZ blasphemy law repealed, and more!
For March 10, 2019.... Catholic Watch.... Cardinal Pell makes prison his new home after he was found guilty on all 5 charges laid against him in the sexual abuse of two choir boys 22 years ago. Not to be outdone, the archbishop of Lyon, Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, was found guilty for failing to report allegations of sexual abuse. Police in Costa Rica raid the offices of the Archdiocese of San José and the Costa Rican bishops' conference as part of their investigation of two predatory priests. But Pope Francis remains undaunted and steadfast, finding that silver lining, saying that the revelations of sexual abuse is purifying the Church! Meanwhile, in Argentina with Catholic tendrils infiltrating its laws forces an 11-year old girl to carry to term a pregnancy resulting from rape. Quack Tract Quebec-based homeopathy 'aid' organization Terre Sans Frontières has been receiving moneys from Global Affairs Canada to push their Chagas' placebo treatment on Hondurans. After this was exposed by CBC journalist Vik Adhopia, doctors questioned this policy and successfully lobbied to end funding. The Alberta Party has announced mandatory vaccinations as part of their policy platform for the upcoming election. The Regressive Left Files New Zealand is the latest to repeal blasphemy laws. White oppressor and physician Deborah Cohan prostrates herself at the altar of social justice in a self-flagellating piece of garbage in - of all places! - the NEJM.

SIS fighters pine for home, nun abuse, Clarks sentencing, and more!
For episode 251.... Quack Tract A "Down Under" chiropractor is fined $30k for claims he made of his profession curing cancer. Not enough, I say, but still good news. What about up here in the Great White North? Hundreds protest in Washington for the "right" to not vaccinate their children. Organizers of an upcoming "natural health" (as if there's an "unnatural health"...) conference on Toronto have canceled the appearance of prominent anti-vaxxer Del Bigtree. Sentencing hearings have concluded for Jennifer and Jeromie Clark, found guilty of criminal negligence causing death and failing to provide the necessaries of life in the death of their 14-month old son John. During the trial, jurors were shown online searches for natural remedies for gangrene, which included cabbage leaves and cayenne. Jesus H. Christ on a Popsicle stick... Eye on Islam Canadians fighting for ISIS in Syria want to come home. One says that it's okay because he hasn't broken any laws here. Wrong, buddy. To paraphrase Batman, we won't kill you. But we don't have to save you, either. Apple and Google offer an app which here in the West would be deemed creepy-stalky by normal people. What does it do? It tracks the movements of women. I wonder what Gillette would say? Catholic Watch Nun abuse - the latest scandal to come out of Catholicism - is coming to the fore. Miscellaneous This is an election year in Alberta. Anti-choice groups have been busy pushing their candidates in the Ultra-conservative Party. Despite assurances from UCP leader Jason Kenney that he will not open the abortion "debate", we should not be sanguine about this.

Asia Bibi headed to Canada; Vatican official resigns over sex abuse allegations; and more!
For February 3, 2019.... Eye on Islam... Asia Bibi, recently acquitted on charges of that fictitious crime blasphemy, is likely headed to Canada. Let's see... Canada's middle finger extended to the Barbaric State of Saudi Arabia - check. Canada's middle finger extended to Pakistan - check. Who's next? February 1st is World Hijab Day. Screw that. When these women take off their hijabs in support of their sisters in the Middle East or in families living in the western world whose values are stuck in the 7th century, I might have some modicum of respect. But I will never - NEVER! - allow the normalization of an instrument of misogyny, religion be damned! A petition to Nike to recall their Air Max shoes has been started at Change.org. The reason? The logo on the sole when viewed upside down looks like the word "Allah". I"m not kidding. Nike has a recent history of moralizing, unless it hurts their bottom line. And of course, CAIR is involved. The Regressive Left Files Counter Terrorism Policing UK wants citizens to call police if you see anyone at a hardware store buying knives or hammers while sinister music is playing. The Twitterverse responds negatively. Who would have seen that coming? The two Laurier "professors" at the center of the Lindsay Shepherd scandal, Nathan Rambukkana and Herbert Pimlott, are suing Shepherd over their unsolicited slanderous comments comparing Jordan Peterson to Hitler. Seriously.
