Well, you are questioning if it's misleading.  

Which is it?

I think I've figured out the game.  Am I playing right?

“Offensive” biographies of five prime ministers scrubbed from government website

Library and Archives Canada has deleted a series of historical biographies on five former Canadian prime ministers, including Sir John A Macdonald, for being too “offensive” for contemporary sensibilities.

According to Blacklock’s Reporter, management at the department decided to delete the webpage “First Among Equals: The Prime Minister In Canadian Life And Politics” for being “redundant or outdated.” 

When it was active, the page also featured articles and photographs on former prime ministers John Turner, Joe Clark, Kim Campbell, Jean Chrétien and Pierre Elliot Trudeau. 

“Content that is deemed redundant or outdated is being removed from the web. This is the case for the following: First Among Equals: The Prime Minister In Canadian Life And Politics,” wrote Archives Canada management. 

“Unfortunately it does not always reflect our diverse and multicultural country, often presenting only one side of Canada’s history. Library and Archives Canada acknowledges that some of its online presence is offensive and continues to correct these issues. That is why content that is redundant or outdated will be removed or rewritten.”

As of May 18, 2020 an archived version of the web page described how the website examined “our leaders’ political careers as well as their private lives. It also sheds light on Canadians’ perceptions of our prime ministers.”

“Macdonald played a leading role in promoting Confederation, to the point of making an alliance with his staunch political rival and Opposition leader, George Brown,” wrote Archives Canada’s spotlight on Sir John A Macdonald. 

This is not the first time that the federal government has scrubbed a biography of Canada’s first prime minister before. 

In June, Library and Archives Canada deleted a different biography of Macdonald after the Toronto Star wrote several articles blasting the government for not mentioning his role in Canada’s residential schooling system.

Those who complained about cancel culture, wanted cancel culture.

FCC Complaints Show Trump Fans Demanding SNL Be Made a Safe Space for Them

 
By all means, read 360 pages of people demanding the federal government cancel Saturday Night Live.
 

The people raging against cancel culture have spent the last four years demanding that the federal government cancel Saturday Night Live for being mean to Donald Trump, according to a cache of official complaints lodged with the Federal Communications Commission. 

Obtained via the Freedom of Information Act and hosted on Government Attic, the complaints about NBC, SNL, and various comedians paint a mesmerizing picture of an America obsessed with demanding government intervention to stop comedians from making mean jokes or saying curse words.

Speaking of "cancel culture", Eric Clapton said he will cancel any concert that requires the attendees to provide proof of vaccination:

It is a surprise to learn of such an insular attitude towards an independantly-proven phenomena from such a broad-minded, intelligent person and cultural icon, but there it is. Eric Clapton, Antivaxxer.

Have you noticed how our language is changing? At a congressional hearing on “Birthing While Black,” nearly every politician used the words “birthing people” instead of “women” or “mothers.” Asked why, Shalanda Young, President Joe Biden’s budget director, said, “Our language needs to be more inclusive.”

Activists have also changed “equality” to “equity” and “affirmative action” to “diversity.” The Associated Press no longer uses “mistress.” It tells reporters to use “companion, friend or lover.”

 

Worse, certain speech is now labelled “violence.” Calling a transgender woman a man is “an act of violence,” says transgender actress Laverne Cox.

Last week, the American Booksellers Association apologized for promoting a book on gender dysphoria after activists called it “anti-trans.” The book is hardly “anti-trans.” The Economist and the Times of London called it one of the best books of the year. But the Booksellers Association actually grovelled, calling promoting the book “violent.”

Tim Sandefur of the Goldwater Institute says it’s dangerous to call words violence. “The only way human beings can deal with one another is through language, discussion, debate,” he says in my new video. “If we say that that’s violence, then the only way for us to relate to one another is through power.”

 

 

“ It’s as if America is moving toward 1984, George Orwell’s novel, in which government controls people’s thoughts by creating a new language, Newspeak.

The only way to stop it, says McWhorter, is to push back: “Enlightened America needs to develop a backbone and start getting used to being called racist on Twitter. Just withstand it. Keep their voices out there. Make us understand what true justice is.”
