B’nai Brith has just put out a press release entitled “Major overhaul of human rights commissions urgently needed.” Better late than never, I suppose. But where was B’nai Brith — and all its pals in the acronymed Jewish advocacy community — six months ago, before the backlash against the human-rights industry reached critical mass?
I am also interested in B’nai Brith’s motives here. The fact that the group is wading into the issue only at this late stage suggests that its real goal is saving a beleaguered censorship policy that has become sacrosanct to the human-rights industry and its acronymed Jewish allies. B’nai Brith, in particular, has had a key role in propping up this industry: Its overwrought surveys on anti-Semitism are Exhibit A in the spurious effort to portray Canada as a seething hive of Jew hatred — a portrayal that, in turn, is cited as evidence that we need heavy-handed human-rights laws.
When it comes to ideological censorship, B’nai Brith has been part of the problem for years. It strikes me as unconvincing when it suddenly declares itself to be a champion of free speech.
If Professional Jews and their supporters really believed that “Canada was a seething hive of Jew hatred”, they’d move out of the country and tell their followers to do likewise.
Since they’ve never issued such a statement, clearly the Canadian Kapo Congress & Co. are simply trumping up “hate crimes” to keep themselves in business and earn their Orders of Canada one day.
Also, they’re nuts:
According to a 2005 “wellness” survey of 4,630 CBC staff — which has only now been made public, thanks to an Access to Information request — 44% of CBC staff display symptoms of high-level psychological distress. And in 9 cases out of 10, that distress was reported as work-related.
Oh, and did I mention that these distressed individuals took double the number of sick days as everyone else? In other words, the ones footing the bill for the oppressive work environment at Canada’s massively subsidized national broadcaster is … you and me.
