Another caller, who proudly identified herself as a former human-rights investigator, said, “If any Canadian spoke like Ann Coulter, he’d be jailed.”
I’m claiming discrimination against your “he,” lady!
Call the cops on me if you have the balls, then. I dare you.
Every day you delay in doing so is another day you show yourself to be an unprincipled coward, blowing hot air and empty threats while I pay your salary.
The clock’s ticking.
Speaking of cops: what do I keep telling you all about them?
The only group exhibiting Canadian-style restraint was the police. They cast a calm eye on the pandemonium, took a balanced view and chose no sides between people trying to exercise their rights and bullies trying to prevent them. Resisting any temptation to enforce the law, Ottawa’s finest exemplified Canada’s definition of moral leadership by observing neutrality between lawful and lawless.
Coulter later wrote the police “called off” her speech because they couldn’t guarantee her security. Interesting, if true. Will it start a trend? Will police call off property rights at the scene of robberies-in-progress? “Look, lady, it’s just a cash register. If they want it so badly, how about letting them have it?”
In an otherwise unimpeachable column, the great George Jonas stumbles and forgets that Canadians don’t actually have private property rights under the Charter. Ooops!
Residents of Peel can display their own intolerance for such attitudes and behaviour by defending those victimized by such hostility, by refusing to engage in any effort tinged by prejudice and by supporting Peel Regional Police in their efforts to quash hate crimes.
That was taken from the CJC website.
Cuz, hey, if anyone knows how much they can trust the cops, it’s the Jews!
Plus: David Solway says the camel is the forgotten victim in this sorry saga.
(from the Hansard)
David McGuinty (Ottawa South, Lib.):
Mr. Speaker, the darling of the reform-conservative-republican movement really outdid herself last night in Calgary. By addressing Canadian diversity, Ann Coulter said that diversity is not an advantage to a country like Canada. “It’s not a strength”, she continued. Then she went on to compare diversity to cancer. From organizing speeches to putting on cocktails, the Conservative Party’s dirty little fingerprints are all over her Canadian tour.
Will the Prime Minister immediately and publicly condemn Ann Coulter’s outrageous and intolerant views?
Hon. Jay Hill (Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, CPC):
Mr. Speaker, you and the hon. member would know that his question has absolutely nothing to do with the business of government and should be disallowed.
The Deputy Speaker:
Order, please. I do not see that that is a business of government administration. I do see the Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister rising, so I will give him a chance to answer, but I caution members to keep their questions–
Mr. Pierre Poilievre (Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister and to the Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, CPC):
Mr. Speaker, the member has raised a very important question about an American commentator who has come to this country with some outrageous comments: comments supporting the Iraq war, comments supporting the use of torture, and comments referring to Israel as a war criminal.
But enough about the leader of the Liberal Party…
Lying: it’s ok when liberal “journalists” do it...
Morley Walker of the Winnipeg Free Press writes that Ann Coulter is “a woman who appeared on the cover of Time magazine in 2005 wearing less than most Playboy bunnies…”
But remember, everyone:
Morley Walker is a REAL journalist, and they are our intellectual and moral superiors!
You can rely on them, and them alone, to give you the facts.
