Very Kavanaugh-ish !

 

She Said He Assaulted Her. Witnesses IN THE ROOM Said It Didn’t Happen. He Was Still Suspended.

 

A female student claimed a male student assaulted her while they lay next to each other on a bed one night after drinking. Just a few feet away, the man’s girlfriend and roommate were talking, and neither heard or saw anything corroborating the woman’s claims. The school suspended him anyway.

In a scathing ruling, Judge Donna D. Geck wrote how deficient the University of California-Santa Barbara’s (UCSB) investigative process was and ordered the school to reverse its decision against the male student.

WORDS...Our society is so weak, so protected from reality, so used to SAFE SPACES, we are now frightened by mere WORDS ! Let’s hope Canadians never have to face something really serious, like Insurrection or political upheaval... or heaven forbid WAR !! This nation will roll over at the first shot!!

 

With less than two weeks left in Toronto’s mayoral campaign, a controversial fringe candidate is asking a court to force Bell Media to run her campaign advertisement.

Faith Goldy claims in a newly filed lawsuit that the broadcaster violated her constitutional right to freely express herself as a registered candidate when it refunded her money and refused to air her 30-second ad on its television news channel, CP24.

“This case is not merely a case about breach of contract. It is about how a democracy functions,” said Clayton Ruby, a prominent civil rights lawyer who is acting for Goldy, a former journalist and far-right activist. The lawsuit seeks a court order forcing Bell to offer her the chance to buy airtime for the ad for the remainder of the campaign.

“We believe we have the right to refuse advertising that contravenes our standards,” said a spokesperson for Bell.

Lawyers for the broadcaster have not yet filed a response to Goldy’s claims.

Goldy has built an online following by pushing anti-immigrant and Islamophobic sentiment and advocating a racist conspiracy theory of “white genocide” or “ethnocide.” She was famously fired by Rebel Media for appearing on a neo-Nazi podcast during the 2017 Charlottesville protests, and has endorsed and cheerily recited a common white supremacist slogan known as the Fourteen Words.

The ad she planned to run was less obviously offensive or racist. It is not clear what standards Bell thinks it violates, or whether the media company’s problem is with Goldy herself. The broadcaster never told her, she said, and a Bell spokesperson declined the National Post’s request for further comment.

We believe we have the right to refuse advertising that contravenes our standards

 

Bell’s refusal to run the ad on the grounds that it violated some unspecified “standards” was “an early, knee-jerk response before they thought it through,” Ruby said at a press conference Tuesday morning.

The lawsuit cites, for example, the Television Broadcasting Regulations, which say TV stations “shall allocate time for the broadcasting of programs, advertisements or announcements of a partisan political character on an equitable basis to all accredited political parties and rival candidates represented in the election or referendum.”

Bell Media is carrying out a “governmental function in selling airtime to political candidates,” so refusing Goldy’s ads violated her Charter right to free expression, the lawsuit claims.

“When (Bell) decides who can use the public airways, which have been described by the CRTC as a public trust held by the broadcaster, then it’s exercising a governmental function and in that aspect, it’s amenable to the courts, through the Charter,” Ruby said. “By shutting marginal candidates out of advertising, and focusing news on the major candidates in a shifted, warped way, they skew the outcome of the election. That’s not what broadcasters are allowed to do. It’s inconsistent with the values of the CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission), and it’s inconsistent with Canadian values.”

Lawyers for Goldy were in Superior Court Tuesday morning seeking an emergency hearing in the next several days. Ruby acknowledged that a likely counter-argument from Bell is that he is arguing is in the wrong court. As a complaint about a broadcaster’s application of statutory regulations, it arguably belongs before the CRTC, even though the CRTC could not possibly resolve a formal complaint in the next two weeks.

Earlier similar cases have failed for this exact jurisdictional reason.

In 1988, for example, Seymour Trieger, the late Green Party leader, failed to convince the Ontario Superior Court to force the CBC to include him on a federal election campaign debate. The Natural Law Party similarly failed in an effort to to be included in a federal town hall debate in 1994.

Those cases, however, were about airtime that was part of a news outlet’s editorial programming, in which courts are especially reluctant to interfere. Paid advertising content is different, Ruby said.

CRTC guidelines to broadcasters appear to back him on this: “If paid advertising time is sold to any party or candidate, advertising time must be made available on an equitable basis to rival parties and candidates.”

Those guidelines also acknowledge, however, that each broadcaster’s situation is different, and some of its rules about “equitable” treatment of political candidates “could amount to an unwieldy proposition.” Municipal elections, for example, typically do not involve mainstream political parties, and can include dozens of candidates, most with no hope of any more than a few inconsequential votes. (To date, public polling on the Toronto election has not shown Goldy as having any significant support.)

“The Commission has no firm rules to cover all aspects of election campaign broadcasting; to some extent it will have to deal with situations on a case-by-case basis,“ the CRTC guidelines say.

They also draws a distinction between “equitable” treatment, which is required, and “equal” treatment, which is not.

At Tuesday’s press conference, Goldy read aloud the script for the ad, in which she appears to pledge to bring back carding, a police tactic criticized for its disproportionate use against racial minorities. The script says fighting crime would be her top priority as mayor, and also mentions protecting the rights of drivers and taxpayers. “It’s time to take back our streets,” it said. “Let’s bring back Toronto the Good.”

“This is an ad to which no one could take objection,” Ruby said.

No court hearing has yet been scheduled.

Vermont school gives fifth-graders sexuality survey, stoking outrage among parents

A Vermont elementary school’s decision to ask fifth-grade students about their sexual history and gender identity has left many parents furious.

Students at Windsor State Street School were given a survey that asked them about their sexual preferences, their biological sex and how they “identify” as and if they have had a “romantic relationship” in that past year that involved a “sexual partner.”

Vanessa Beach, who posted portions of the survey on Facebook, said it was “ridiculous and unnerving” that her 10-year-old daughter was asked to disclose such information.

 

Beach said in her post that she has no problem discussing sexuality, but that it’s shocking that fifth-grade students were asked about something they may not yet understand.

“It’s none of their business,” she wrote. “What if my child was having a hard time with her sexuality?”

The survey was given to students on behalf of a nonprofit domestic violence prevention and advocacy group, Women's Information Services (WISE).

Parents were supposedly given a notice allowing them to opt out of the questions on behalf of their children, but Beach says she never received anything and was only made aware of the survey when her daughter brought it home. 

She says other parents also complained about never receiving any notice.

School Principal Tiffany Cassano told Fox News in a statement that the survey was given to approximately 10 fifth-grade students as a part of a research project at the University of New Hampshire.

"WISE and school guidance sent a letter home to families of 5th and 6th graders, informing them of the upcoming program that was being offered and the survey that would be distributed," Cassano said. "The letter gave parents the right to opt out of participating in the survey. Students were also given the right to opt out of participating in the survey after engaging in a conversation around consent and what it means to give consent."

Cassano said that administration did not see the survey before it was given to students and that it has been "suspended" since.

"While we recognize the content of the survey was very sensitive and caused unsettling feelings for some parents, it was most certainly not intended to harm or sway students to consider different beliefs about gender or relationships."

Attempts to reach WISE for comment were unsuccessful.

Beach said that the school district worked immediately to address her complaints and was apologetic from the start but she said that the situation is still troubling.

"A classroom is not the proper place to discuss a child's sexuality.”

This is like a competition to see who can be the craziest the quickest.

The Liberal Party of Canada is now so far left I simply can’t support it anymore and I don’t see that ever changing. But here’s the real problem, in order to maintain their identity, the NDP have pushed the bar even further and now border on insane. The PCs (in my opinion) have now filled in where the liberals once where and the PPC are now (my) definition of conservative, BTW I happen to agree with much of what they propose. So…. how did all this happen?

Even if you don’t quite agree with my oversimplification of party platforms the point is/was that all of the positions are becoming more extreme, the choices more stark, the population more polarized and all of this feeds a pernicious cycle that seems to have no end in sight.

I don’t want to pick on deicer because his opinions are actually not far off those of several acquaintances and family members, I simply use him as a known example of a narrative that, if taken to its logical destination, scares me and it’s one I will go to almost any length to avoid and counter.

This puts me in a bad position (and not of my own making either), if I want to avoid this destination I am forced to go further and further right with each passing year. Mainstream parties need to set adrift the extreme fringes and stop letting them hijack the party vision before we hit PNR. I bet there are now damn few members of the “anyone but Harper” club. In short, people like me are the reason for Trump, people like me are the reason all the polls are getting it wrong and people like me are kryptonite for the new brand of liberal values.... how have smart people not noticed the trend?

This has been suggested to Deicer by more than one poster but it consistently falls on deaf ears. I personally believe the vast majority of Canadians  would agree with you.

It must be clear that I'm not a Clinton fan, but back in the day when the politically & religiously motivated prosecutor set a trap and used the result to impeach the sitting President of the United States, I thought that marked the beginning of the end of anything that would ever look like civilized politics again.

I can't speak to your friends views, but overall, I suggest you are assuming a false causal relationship between opinion and electoral outcome. I view your position (on a variety of subjects) to be based largely on partisan affiliation. Partisanship tends to obscure the issues, often defies common sense and enables the fringe elements to remain in their current unhinged state of existence without reproof. 

Polling would likely place me as a Liberal sympathizer but the unwillingness of Liberals to reign in the fringe (for largely partisan reasons) and the violent misguided nature of these fringe elements makes the whole platform both unsupportable and dangerous. And yes, I vote against it... hence the failure of much of the polling data. 

The current situation in Toronto was easily predictable and it will continue to get worse until addressed with the absence of PC nonsense. Now, you either agree with that assertion or you don’t…. tell me your answer and I’ll tell you your party. That predictability is what has changed over the last few years and its fraught with danger and speaks to the polarization issue.  

PS: Here ya go, guess I'm not the only one. The comments are instructive as well, have a look, it appears that if you don't agree with Ricky it's because you're stupid...

Not as many as those who line up to listen to a lying, philandering, bankrupt, failing current president. ?

And with that, the case for partisan affiliation leading to  polarization rests. Cheers

When you point a finger, three point back at you.

 

Do you think I’m being accusatory by suggesting a strong link between partisanship and polarization? Or, that polarization begets tribalism? Or that nothing good comes from tribalism?

It's partisanship that allowed the far left to establish a beach head and polarization is the inevitable outcome of normalizing extreme views. The far right is less scary in my view, a handful of skinheads, racists and gun nuts are easily crushed. Don’t get the idea I’m on their side, I'm not… both extremes need to be cut loose and set adrift to furl their own sails.

"I was almost positive you told me you liked Bill and agreed he was one of the best US presidents. You prefer Reagan...or Carter...or Barack...or " the Donald"?"

They say 'age affects memory'.

I liked Reagan. but I don't hold him up to be the great political god' some do.

I always thought Carter was a kind and thoughtful man, but too much of a dove.

Barack was an egotistical wind bag that did more to damage race relations than even George Wallace. I honestly believe he was operating way beyond his pay grade.

I think the behaviour of the Donald is often cringe worthy, but the guy is a bull and isn't scared to take on the establishment and get things done.

A clear trend now and the beginning of making sporting events for women meaningless. Remember all the liberal minded folks who said this would not be an issue? I'd like to know where they are now. You had to cover your ears, close your eyes and whistle loudly to not anticipate this. High school track and field will soon be a waste of effort for competitive young ladies. On the plus side, now that I self-identify as an aboriginal woman, the fishing season is longer.

Tuesday, October 18th was a dark day for Canada.  The Liberal government presented Bill 16 - The Transgender Bill, to parliament for second reading.  The Bill passed 248 - 40 with less than half of the Conservative members opposing the change to the criminal code.  Upon enactment, males will be admitted to all female spaces and positions under the power of law. Any man who says he has an inner feeling of being female will be admitted into girl's showers, change rooms and bathrooms.  No certification or operation required.

Since this proposed law changes the criminal code of Canada, anyone who opposes a man in a female space will be subject to imprisonment for up to 2 years.

Unfortunately this new law will not just apply to people truly struggling with gender fluidity, it will also provide unmitigated access for predators who seek to take advantage of their new rights.  God help us as we allow people like Colonel Russel Williams legal rights to enter where he chooses, a murderer and rapist who expressed himself with female attire. 

Also women's sports will be changed forever.  Any male will now be able to try out for Canada's women's Olympic hockey team or any other sport, as long as he has any type of female expression.  

Modern misogyny has take on a new face.  Women in Canada are now losing their rights as a movement against women is gaining tremendous powers, even the power to put people in jail if they oppose.

Women have done it to themselves.

Just like everything else about our screwed up society anymore, level headed conservative women sat by quietly for far too long, which has given the insane segment of their sex the opportunity to drive them all over a cliff.

There are some positive aspects to all of this. On motorcycle rides I'm a Sikh, when I go fishing I'm an aboriginal woman... you have to make this work for you. My opposition to it was never for myself, it was for (your) daughters, mothers and sisters in the locker room and women in general, they will bear the brunt of this madness. Believe me, showering with girls who think they're gay guys isn't a problem for me... besides, I like fishing. At the risk of asking too many times, what did you think was going to happen?
