Pragmatism or Idealism. The smart conservative approach to abortion.

dwr.jpgConservative parties, and even Progressivist parties, always include people that are uncomfortable with the issue of abortion. In most developed countries – other than Canada – there are limits to abortion depending on the stage of the pregnancy. In Canada there are no laws, and no legal limits, and, we’re not even supposed to talk about the issue. We should, because with DNA we now know that a new, completely individual human life begins at conception, and Canada should join other modern nations in recognizing that fact.

A few weeks ago I received an article suggesting that social conservatives should approach the abortion issue pragmatically, rather than idealistically. The author asked me if I would be interested in publishing it on my blog, anonymously. The author’s data is correct, and since I’m in philosophical agreement on the issue, I’ve agreed.

Please read it carefully, and then let us know what you think.

A smart Conservative approach to abortion in Canada

I estimate that only 10% of Canadians support the status quo: abortion is legal during all nine months of pregnancy, for any reason, every reason, or no reason.  Sex-selection abortions (parent or parents unhappy with the gender of their/his/her unborn child) are perfectly legal in Canada, and this victimizes unborn girls far more frequently than unborn boys.

Most Canadians, upon hearing that abortion in Canada is legal during all nine months of pregnancy, respond by getting upset and denouncing this fact as a lie.  But facts are facts.  There is no Criminal Code prohibition on ending a human life until the baby is fully outside of his or her mother.  Prior to that, the unborn person has no legal personhood.  Nor are there other laws or policies, federal or provincial, that place any restrictions on abortion, or impose requirements of any kind.  The number of late-term abortions is not large, but this does not mean that late-term abortions are illegal.

The remaining 90% of Canadians fall into various shades of belief on the spectrum, from hard-core pro-life (make all abortions illegal) to mostly pro-life (allow abortions in cases of rape, incest or serious fetal deformities/handicaps) to middle-of-the-road (undecided or no strong view) to mostly pro-choice (late-term abortions and gender selection abortions are not OK).

Why, in a democracy, do we have five political parties (Libs, NDP, Conservatives, Greens, Bloc Quebecois) chasing after 10% of the vote, and expressly rejecting and repudiating the 90% of voters who want at least some restrictions on abortion?  My best guess is that a small, extremist pro-choice minority has successfully mobilized vocal support for the status quo, but without speaking honestly about what the status quo actually is: abortion legal during all nine months of pregnancy.  It’s much easier to attack the hard-core pro-life position (that probably 90% of Canadians disagree with) than it is to justify late-term abortions and gender-selection abortions.

Another reason why the five parties now represented in the House of Commons are chasing after the 10% minority is that the pro-life movement, in the past 50 years, has been dominated by “absolutists” who refuse to discuss any public policy option other than a total and immediate ban on all abortions.  Serious pro-lifers who would like to reach their ultimate goal step-by-step have been frozen out by groups which have not achieved any legislative or policy victory in the past 50 years.  Pro-life advocacy for popular measures like banning late-term abortions and gender-selection abortions has begun to emerge in Canada only recently.

The Conservative Party of Canada has as many options on dealing with abortion as there are positions on abortion.  Looking at this purely from the angle of winning votes (and putting aside moral questions about ending the lives of people before they are born), I suggest that one approach is particularly foolish, and another approach particularly smart.

The foolish approach is to join the Libs, New Democrats, Greens and Bloc Quebecois in chasing after the 10% of Canadian voters who actually support the status quo.  Why wade into this crowded field?  Why ignore the 90% of voters who are unhappy with the status quo?

Apart from ignoring the 90% of voters who want at least some restrictions on abortion, the Conservative Party is seen (correctly) as profoundly insincere when it pretends to be chasing after the 10% of extremist pro-choice voters.  Everybody knows that many CPC candidates are pro-life, including its most recent leader, Andrew Scheer.  Everybody knows that the CPC, unlike the other four parties represented in the House of Commons, is not really and truly enthusiastic about the status quo.  Lack of sincerity breeds mistrust.

The 10% of voters who support gender-selection abortions and late-term abortions are never going to vote for the Conservatives.  And, without advocating directly for late-term abortions and gender-selection abortions, the 10% extreme pro-choice group will successfully capitalize on the CPC’s lack of sincerity in order to generate doubt and mistrust that hurts the CPC amongst many (perhaps most) Canadian voters.

The smart approach would be for the Conservative Party to appeal to 90% of Canadians by advocating for a ban on late-trimester abortions and gender-selective abortions.

This position would generate howls of outrage from at least three sources.

First, the Liberals, NDs, Bloc and Greens would denounce this CPC position as utterly wicked, bad and wrong; a regressive assault on the fundamental rights of women; a backwards and misogynist approach; a threat to reproductive choice, etc..  And, for a few weeks or possibly a few months, these denunciations would work political wonders temporarily.

But the political positions of candidates and parties need to be repeated frequently before they sink it.  It will take a lot more than one news conference for the CPC to communicate to voters its proposed ban on late-term abortions and gender-selection abortions.  However, after repeating this position for 6, 12, 18 or more months, 90% of voters would realize that they agree with CPC policy on abortion.  It would only be a matter of time before the other four federal parties were on the defensive, having to explain to 90% of Canadians why they support late-term abortion and gender-selection abortion.

The second source of outrage would come from the biased, left-wing media.  In harmony with the four parties whose ideology they share, the so-called “mainstream” media would declare that the Conservative Party had committed political suicide simply by failing to pander to the abortion orthodoxy accepted by only 10% of Canadians.  Like the other left-wing parties, the media party would try very hard not to inform Canadians of the fact that abortion is legal during all nine months of pregnancy, or of the fact that gender-selection abortion is legal in Canada.

The third source of outrage would come from a small number of established but ineffective pro-life activists who would denounce the Conservative Party as a pro-choice enemy.  Of note: a small number of pro-lifers were already doing this when Andrew Scheer was leading the CPC.  After the October 2019 election, some pro-lifers very publicly called on Andrew Scheer to resign as CPC leader for not being pro-life.  But most pro-lifers in Canada realize that the goal of full protection for all unborn children will never – never – be fully realized in one move.  Rather, when it comes to any political issue (taxes; immigration; deficits-and-debt; health care; education; aboriginal rights; LGBTQ issues; etc.) change is almost always incremental.  In short, the pro-life “absolutists” have little influence over other pro-lifers, or over the Canadian public at large.

In summary, if the CPC adopts a policy of banning late-term abortions and gender-selection abortions, it will align itself with 90% of Canadians, and will not lose votes from amongst the 10% pro-choice extremists who would never vote for the CPC in any case.

The CPC position against late-term abortions and against gender-selection abortions will engender loud but useless outrage from other federal parties, from the media party, and from a very small number of pro-life activists who lack political influence and clout.

If the CPC is committed to withstanding the initial waves of vocal-but-shallow opposition to its new policies, it will put the other four parties on the defensive; they will be obligated to defend an extreme position that only 10% of Canadian voters agree with.

A smart approach or a foolish approach … it’s up to the Conservative Party to decide.

Sick or Depraved, or both?

dwr.jpgThe Progressivist Left has an agenda to sexually confuse your children. I know that a lot of people can’t or won’t believe it, but it’s true. Here’s a link to an article about how the LGBT radical’s agenda is playing out in Vermont. Schoolchildren who can’t get an aspirin without their parent’s permission, are going to be enabled to have gender reassignment surgery at taxpayer’s expense, without their parent’s permission.

This sort of thing is happening around the Western world. In England it was found that one school was grooming 17 pupils, mostly autistic, to become transgender. It’s well-established that autistic children are easily influenced, in this case to believe that they were born in the wrong body.

images.jpg(You may have heard of Greta Thunberg, the autistic Swedish girl who became obsessed with the notion that human caused climate change is about to doom us all. Exploitive adults, sadly including the Pope, are using this psychologically ill child to advance their dream of world government. And yes, many of the leaders of climate alarmism religion openly admit that a world government is their dream.)

When, thankfully for Alberta’s children, the NDP was ousted from power in April, they were in the process of bringing in a law that would outlaw “conversion therapy”, for adults. That is, adults experiencing same-sex attraction or gender identity disorder, and who wished to become straight, would not be allowed, by law, to seek treatment or counselling.

(Those who say that therapy never works are either ignorant, or lying, because I have listened to lectures and spoken personally with those who have changed. And I have also spoken on numerous occasions with a friend who attempted to transition from male to female through hormone treatments, and, by having his genitals removed and a cosmetic vagina fashioned, and he told me later that it was been a huge mistake.)

At the same time that the NDP was planning to forbid adults from choosing treatment for same-sex attraction or transgender-ism, they were busily enforcing their law that enabled activist or addled teachers to assist little children as young as 5 to begin transitioning, while they were at school. Ignoring the difference in maturity between a 7-year-old and a 17-year-old, their law also stipulated that parents could not be notified without the child’s permission.

RedDeerNorthDonate.jpgThere are many words for this kind of behavior, including sick, depraved, exploitative, abusive, and even diabolical. Ordinary citizens need to become informed, and then, vocal. Here in Alberta, the election of a putatively conservative government is not going to make the Radicals go away. They are already relentlessly attacking the new Education Minister, Adrian LaGrange. (Pictured) She needs your written and vocal support.

Alberta Election: CULTURE

dwr.jpgThere are two fundamental issues that Albertans must consider before Alberta’s election on April 16; issues about which we must think carefully, courageously, and completely. And when we’re thinking, we always need to start with facts, then think, then allow emotion, and then, speak, or act/vote.

The first issue is; where are Alberta (and Western Society) headed, culturally speaking?

The second is; where is Alberta headed economically?

This week; CULTURE. A few months ago we heard that 17 young people, in one school, in England, most of them autistic, were being groomed to change their gender, which could ultimately include having their genitals surgically altered. Parents were not to be told. Follow this link. Many child psychologists and researchers say that it’s child abuse, and it’s currently legal in Alberta.

In our radicalized sexual identity culture, some activist clinicians are recommending that little girls as young as 3 should be assisted to transition if they think they’d like to be boys. Parents are to be excluded from the discussions. Some clinicians are recommending that girls as young as 13 be allowed to have mastectomies. Parents are not allowed to interfere.

In Nova Scotia, children as young as 12 are being asked loaded questions, and then are being “scored” for their trans-phobia. The purpose is to teach children, and I quote: “… what thoughts and opinions are acceptable for them to think.”

Get that? Radicals in the LGBT movement are teaching kids what they are to think. This is right out of the Marxist/Fascist playbook and we tried those in the 20th century with catastrophic results.

Under Alberta’s NDP, our children are not safe from this. Dr. Kris Wells, a friend of Alberta’s Education Minister, David Eggen, oversaw the linking of pornographic sites to the taxpayer funded, Gay Straight Alliance, or GSA website. When confronted, Wells took them down, but then he attacked the mother who had found and objected to them, calling her “hysterical” and “sensationalist”.

Obviously, Kris Wells should never have a role in the education of our children. But last year, the Alberta Teachers Association, or ATA had Dr. Wells as their keynote speaker at a conference. Albertans should no longer trust the ATA, which is an all in supporter of the NDP. And Wells was never fired or reprimanded by Alberta Education, or the NDP.

In fact, now having legislated that parents must be excluded from their young children’s struggle with Gender Identity Disorder, the NDP is considering legislation that would bar adult gay and transsexual individuals from seeking transition therapy.

If someone tells you that transition therapy never works, they are either ignorant, or lying. I have met and talked to several people who have changed their orientation through psychological or spiritual counseling. And I had a transsexual friend who told me that his “gender reassignment therapy” was a terrible mistake, because it changed nothing.

So think about it. In Alberta, if a child wants to become a member of the opposite sex, the government will assist them, and, by law, exclude parents from even knowing what is going on. On the other hand, if an adult wishes to have transition therapy, it is almost certain that another NDP government will outlaw it.

Contrary to national, international, and even provincial law, the NDP government seems to believe that it is they who have a prior right to decide on the education of children, and, a right to override personal decisions made by adults. That’s TOTALITARIANISM.

So this Alberta election is extremely critical for the cultural and social health of the province, and for the safety of your children and grandchildren. If you are an Albertan 18 or over, you have a moral obligation to become informed, and to then get out and vote.

Next blog will be about Alberta’s declining FINANCES and the vanished Alberta advantage.

The Too Often Quoted, Kristopher Wells

DW Blog

In Alberta, it now seems that every time something comes up regarding an LGBT issue, Kristopher Wells pops up as the go to expert; always against parents, and always on the side of “progress” Let’s look at what Kristopher Wells means by progress.

Wells is a professor, and a confidant of Alberta’s Education Minister, David Eggen. About three years ago, Mr. Eggen engaged Wells to supervise the construction and launch of Alberta Education’s Gay Straight Alliance, or GSA, website. For several months no one paid attention, but then, Edmonton mother, Theresa Ng who is now with Parents for Choice, decided to have a look.

Ms. Ng found numerous links from the GSA website to sexually explicit sites. If you haven’t already, it’s very important that you follow the link. You need to be aware of these sites, included the one that gave instructions on “25 sex positions you can try at home”, and another on how to give oral sex. For 5 years and up?!

Kris WellsWhen confronted with absolute proof of the links – Theresa Ng had presciently taken screenshots of the linked websites – the links were removed. But then Kristopher Wells took to social media to denounce Ms. Ng for being “hysterical” and “sensationalist.” Are you serious? In what demented world is a mother being hysterical by objecting to explicitly sexual content being provided, unbeknownst to her, to her children?

Judging by his verbal attack on Theresa Ng, Mr. Wells feels that making such material available to five, six, seven, and eight-year-olds is desirable. Anyone that thinks that way is, at the very least, exhibiting an appalling lack of judgment. There might also be serious psychological issues involved, for which Mr. Wells would deserve our sympathy.

But in either or both cases, Mr. Wells should not be allowed to have anything whatsoever to do with the education of Alberta’s children. Yet Mr. Wells is still looked to as an advisor by Education Minister David Eggen; and was the keynote speaker at an Alberta Teachers Association conference last summer. Alberta parents, that middle finger was for you.

Wells is also used as a source by the media, including, the Calgary Herald, the Calgary Sun, the CBC, and the consistently ridiculous, Star Metro. That the media would look to such an individual for comment says volumes about media elitists disdain for science, decency, and basic common sense, and their insouciant disregard for the innocence of children.

Or maybe they’re just too lazy to investigate, and can thereby claim ignorance. Whatever; when a member of the media quotes Kristopher Wells be aware that he’s the guy who thinks it’s OK to provide Alberta’s little children with quick access to explicit sexual instructions.

David EggenThese facts tell you everything you need to know before you vote in the upcoming Alberta election. Because, knowing all these facts – and she must have – Rachel Notley has continued with David Eggen as Minister of Education, which, in practical terms, makes her complicit in what normal people would see as the corruption of minors.

Here’s what Pennsylvania law says regarding the corruption of minors. “(ii) Whoever, being of the age of 18 years and upwards, by any course of conduct in violation of Chapter 31 (relating to sexual offenses) corrupts or tends to corrupt the morals of any minor less than 18 years of age, or who aids, abets, entices or encourages any such minor in the commission of an offense under Chapter 31 commits a felony of the third degree.” Under 18? What about providing sexually explicit material to children under 8?

NotleyLuckily for Ms. Notley, Mr. Eggen, and Mr. Wells, they live in Alberta, because in Pennsylvania it’s possible they could be charged with a felony and imprisoned. Not a bad idea in my opinion, but in Alberta, the best we can do and must do, four months from now, is throw the creeps out!

Understanding Totalitarianism

George JonasHere’s the link to an article I saved from the National Post, September 12, 2012, written by the late, and very excellent, George Jonas. It perfectly encapsulates the view that any non-totalitarian would have; that is, that parents have a “prior right” to decide on all aspects of their children’s education. The “prior right” quote comes directly from the UN Declaration of Human Rights.

Note that Jonas was not a Christian, but a Jewish agnostic who had survived the Nazi Holocaust. Several of his family did not.

Joeseph GoerbbelsCompare his perspective on parental rights with that of Alberta’s increasingly totalitarian bureaucracy, the Alberta Department of Education, and Education Minister Eggen, who by his actions and utterances apparently agrees with Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda Minister who said: “The youth belong to us!” Wherever you live, it is increasingly likely that your Department of Education believes the same.

I suspect that George Jonas’ brush with the Nazis helped inform his opinion. He clearly understood that we ignore history at our peril.

Please take the time to read the article. It’s more urgent today than it was in 2012. And please share with your email list, and on Facebook and Twitter! Social media is the culture building tool of the 21st century. Let’s use it!

Hyenas under the Rainbow Flag

DW Blog

I’ve been to Africa several times, and I can tell you that hyenas are not well liked. Hyenas appear cowardly, and they have a weird laughing yap that sounds a bit creepy, and they are reputed to grab children. Probably rare, but it has happened.

Which brings me to the title of this blog. I’ll wager that most people in the LGBT community support the rainbow flag. I’ll also wager that most of them simply want to live their lives as good citizens of their city and country, and to allow others live their lives as they see fit. At least that’s been my observation over nearly 60 years.

In 1963, my very naïve, 19-year-old self headed off to the big city, where I soon found a job. One of the fellows I worked with was homosexual. (It took me about four months to figure it out because I honestly could not believe that a guy could not like girls.  And “gay” had nothing to do with homosexuality.)

We remained friends, although 1963 was six years before the gay rights movement even got started, and having a homosexual friend was not always comfortable. “Beating up Fags” was Saturday night entertainment for some, maybe the cops would pitch in to to help! Friends of homosexuals were often viewed with suspicion and contempt.

I thought then, and I still do, that the way people in the homosexual/transgender community were treated, was appalling. We’ve made a lot of progress since then, and most people treat LGBT individuals with decency and respect. Governments recognize their rights as citizens and taxpayers. But as is usually the case with human societies, we’ve gone almost directly from one ditch, way past the centre, through the other ditch, and we’re now far into the swamp, and are sinking fast.

HyenasBecause there is a cohort, a pack embedded within the LGBT community, that used to be known as “recruiters”. I call them hyenas. Those are people who watch for children with social vulnerabilities; awkwardness, shyness around the opposite sex or obvious gender confusion, and they try to guide or entice them into the LGBT lifestyle.

Last week I blogged about the naked hypocrisy of the Progressivist politicians and media attack on civil rights lawyer, John Carpay, for mentioning the Nazi swastika, and the Communist hammer and sickle, and the Rainbow Flag, in the same sentence.

John CarpayMr. Carpay had every reason to do so. Contrary to national and international law, this totalitarian minded pack of hyenas has legislated that parents cannot be informed if their children are experiencing gender confusion. Not even 5, 6, 7, and 8 year olds! Coming between children and their parents to create the society they wanted was a standard Nazis and Communist tactic. John Carpay was absolutely right to make his comparison.

Yapping and circling, Alberta’s Minister of Education and his advisors, apparently with the approval of the premier, are hell-bent on grabbing and destroying as many children’s lives as possible. And far too many complicit or lazy journalists yap their approval.

That’s what last week’s blog was about, and if you haven’t read it or passed it along, here’s the link. I have a great-grandson who within two or three years will be in our “education” system, so this issue is very personal to me.

But it’s also happening now, or will happen, wherever you live; in your province, and your state, and your country. That sounds alarmist, but it’s true.

Even as I was working on this blog, there came the sickening news that 17 young people, in one school, in England, most of them autistic, are being groomed to cosmetically change their gender. Follow this link. What these hyenas are doing has no basis in science. In fact, credible child psychologists and researchers say that it’s child abuse. Do ya think?

I have a transgender friend who, even as middle-aged man had his genitals removed and a vagina fashioned. A couple of years later he told me that it had been a terrible mistake and had changed nothing. Studies show that that is the reality for a majority of these permanently mutilated people. Sadly, many commit suicide. And still, the hyenas circle and yap.

It’s my fervent hope that someday these abusers will be hauled into court by their victims, there to be bankrupted by a massive class action lawsuit. Better yet, that someday they are charged with child abuse and sent to prison.

And if that doesn’t happen, let me pass along something that Jesus predicted about the fate of those who destroy children’s lives, and I quote: “It is inevitable that stumbling blocks will come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck and to be thrown into the sea than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.”

John Carpay and the Rainbow Flag

Early 2019. This an update to a blog I published on November 15, 2018.  The original blog was  viewed thousands of times in nearly 50 countries, so I’d like to provide some context for non Canadians.

The NDP is a party in Canada that defines itself as moderately socialist, or Social Democrat. It, (and other left wing parties), has recently become distinctly totalitarian in its ideological approach to many issues, most notably, its sexualization of education from kindergarten through high school. They apparently see no difference between 7 and 17 year olds. What I wrote about has come, or will be coming to your country, unless perhaps you live in Saudi Arabia.

This blog is for our children and grandchildren.

At a conference held in Calgary, Canada on Saturday, November 10, 2018, John Carpay, founder of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom, made the mistake of putting Nazi and Communist symbols and the rainbow flag in the same sentence. The left lost its mind. Admittedly, in the context of the “gotcha” times in which we live, John’s wording was an invitation for left-wing organizations and commentators to summon their enormous reserves of self-righteous, and entirely hypocritical, indignation.

The Calgary Herald’s Don Braid puffed that, “Vile” is a mild word for John Carpay’s linking of the swastika and the hammer and sickle with the rainbow flag of Gay Pride.” Braid went on: “How is it “hostility toward individual freedoms” when LGBTQ kids are at last accorded some official respect and acceptance — when they are, in fact, granted individual freedom?”

Individual freedom for five, six, seven, and eight-year-olds? Now there’s a postmodern spin on freedom. Freedom from what? Their parents? Freedom to have the nanny-state guide them from what is, almost always, a temporary childhood gender identity confusion, into a permanent state of gender crisis? Freedom for the government to help tomboyish little girls as young as three begin transitioning from their birth gender, to becoming a “chemicals and cosmetics boy”, and freedom for the government to pass a law that says, the parents cannot be told?

Those so-called laws are nationally and internationally, illegal. They are also totalitarian, unscientific, and plainly constitute child abuse. At least, so say many objective scientists in the field of childhood gender identity disorder.

Nazi Germany and Communist Russia and Maoist China all believed in the supremacy of the state, and, as Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda minister boasted: “The youth belong to us.” And now by their decision to illegally prevent the parents of children as young as five from being told about the sexual identity confusion that their child is experiencing, the NDP  is signalling that, exactly like the Nazis, it’s their view that parents and families are subordinate to the state.

But again, regarding children’s rights, Don Braid says that: “Any attempt to limit those rights is not a subject for legitimate debate, any more than the rainbow flag is a swastika.” Well Mr. Braid, to be clear, no one, including John Carpay, has ever said the rainbow flag is a swastika. (The notion that children’s rights have no limitations is mindless nonsense)

Actually, limiting the rights of parents to know what’s happening to their children, and, interfering in a child’s right to have the support of their parents is very Nazi-ish, and is most decidedly a topic for a legitimate debate, especially when the government imposing the limits looks for guidance to individuals like Dr. Kristopher Wells. (pictured)

Kris WellsWells is a professor, and a confidant of Alberta’s education Minister, David Eggen. Mr. Eggen engaged Wells to supervise the construction and launch of Alberta’s Gay Straight Alliance, or GSA, website. For several months, no one paid attention. And then, Edmonton mother, Theresa Ng who is now with Parents for Choice, decided to have a look.

Ms. Ng found numerous links from the Wells supervised GSA website to sexually explicit sites. These sites included one that gave instructions on 25 sexual positions you can try at home, and another on how to give oral sex. There was also a description of felching, a practice so sickening and perverted that I’ll let you look it up for yourself. Remember, the GSA website is government approved for ages five through high school. It’s obviously not approved by parents.

I can imagine NDP supporters saying, actually I’ve talked to NDP supporters who say that they simply can’t believe that what I’m telling them is true. Sadly, it is, and here’s proof. Please scroll all the way to the bottom of the 20 PDFs, because this is what was being provided for your children and grandchildren, and you need to know.

When confronted with proof of the links – Theresa Ng had presciently taken screenshots of the linked websites – the links were removed. But then Kristopher Wells took to social media to denounce Ms. Ng for being “hysterical” and “sensationalist.” Seriously? A mother objecting to explicitly sexual content being provided to her children, without her knowledge or consent, is being hysterical and sensationalist? In what dystopian reality does Mr. Wells live? Again, here’s the link. You decide.

It’s beyond my comprehension, but Kristopher Wells is still an advisor to the NDP Alberta government, and earlier this year was the keynote speaker at an Alberta Teachers Association (ATA) conference. As a parent, does that make you feel comfortable? As an NDP or Progressivist supporter, does that make you feel comfortable? Does it make Don Braid feel comfortable?

Wells Christians Nazis CartoonDid this cartoon equating Christians to Nazis and ISIS, published on Twitter by Kristopher Wells in June 2016, inspire Don Braid to somewhere call it “vile”? I couldn’t find it. Wells has never apologized, and the CBC, and the Metro Star, a local publication of the almost comically Progressivist Toronto Star, seem to be okay with the cartoon, and with Well’s lack of apology.

John CarpayI was at the conference at which Mr. Carpay spoke and I listened to his entire speech. Full disclosure: I know John Carpay, and I know with absolute certainty, that to suggest that he broadly equates the rainbow flag with Nazi-ism or Communism is utter nonsense. John is simply one of Canada’s most effective defenders of freedom and so the Progressivist Left hates him.

When a very moderate conservative like John Carpay inadvertently uses words in a way that can be spun negatively, Leftist Progressivists like Don Braid and the left wing media reveal themselves as total hypocrites, and purveyors of fake news.

Because when extremist and totalitarian minded leftists equate Christians with Nazis and ISIS, and defend the radical and extreme sexualization of little children, and specifically associate themselves with the rainbow flag, then people like Don Braid and the Progressivist Left go silent. Instead they use these same extremists as “sources”, and “trusted advisors” and “keynote speakers”.

Back to you Mr. Braid.

Trump, Transgender, and the NDP!

DW Blog

Recent issues of The Economist magazine included articles that suggest that they have decided to make some tentative steps back towards responsible journalism.

The first was about Donald Trump’s foreign policy, for which they still had plenty of criticism. But after much to-ing and fro-ing, there came this statement. “Mr. Trump’s foreign policy team appears to be working more effectively than some of its predecessors.” After double checking to make sure I was reading The Economist, I sent them a note congratulating them on their baby step back towards objectivity.

Then a couple of weeks later they featured a lengthy article on transgender-ism entitled: “The body of law”. This time, again contrary to my expectations, The Economist was exceptionally objective.

Transgender-ism has been around for a long time, but it’s always been regarded as a disorder. In ancient times, i.e., the 90s, it was actually believed that if you were born with male genitalia, you were a male, and if you were born with female genitalia you were a female.

Not so say the activists, and Alberta’s (current) government. If you’re a boy and you feel like a girl, well then, Bob’s your uncle and you’re a girl! And you get to use the girl’s washroom, and showers! Real girls feel uncomfortable about that? “Suck it up sisters” says Alberta’s oh so Progressivist government. (They also apparently think it’s okay for little kids as young as five to have access to websites telling them about things like 25 sex positions you can try at home, and how to give oral sex. But that was another blog.)

Children are under tremendous pressure, from people who should be protecting them,  to become sexually active, and to get involved in the Progressivist flavor of the month, currently, transgenderism. The Economist says, sensibly, that maybe we should proceed with caution.

It’s insanity, but some clinics in the United States are supporting gender transition; i.e., change of name, pronouns and clothing, for children as young as three. They’re recommending mastectomies for girls as young as 13. This is the stuff that should send you to jail, or a mental institution.

The American Academy of Pediatrics endorses this “hurry up and transition” approach, saying delay harms children unnecessarily. Then they cite scientific papers to justify their position, when those same papers actually refute their position. There is no credible research that backs their position, so they count on people’s ignorance on the issue to slide the lie past. I’ve read about AAP for years, and they’ve long since been taken over by radicals from the LGBT community.

The more scientifically minded American College of Pediatricians, (ACP), correctly calls the foolishness endorsed by the AAP, child abuse.

In Britain little kids are officially being taught that “Gender is much more than the body you were born with.” There’s a “Kids Guide to Gender Identity” for five-year-olds which tells them that, “Kids know a lot about themselves. They know who they are by how they feel inside.” So, 21st century Postmodernism has abolished gender identity disorder. Ignore that penis. If you feel like a girl, you are a girl!

trans-man-having-baby**How crazy can it get? Figure out the photo if you can.

And there’s the safety issue. Radicals want transgendered individuals to use the showers and change rooms that correspond with the gender they have chosen, not their genitalia. But surveys show that mixed sex changing rooms are where most sexual assaults happen. The Alberta government wants them in your school. Are you listening?

The Economist suggested that “To resolve the conflicts between trans rights, and the rights of natal women and children … (those who identify with their birth gender – parenthesis mine) … requires research, and reasoned debate”. I’d suggest that a small dose of common sense could resolve the issue more quickly.

And here it is, an Alberta policy spelled out by The Economist. “If a child expresses a transgender identity to a teacher, trans rights guides say that there is no need to tell parents.” But in Rachel Notley’s Alberta, a new law says that teachers can not tell the parents, even if they think they should.

Alberta’s current government has gone leading-edge lunacy on this anti-science, child abusive craziness. I suspect they’ll be thrown out in the next election.

In my view, they can’t be thrown far enough.

DW Blog

In Alberta Politics: Rachel Notley is really concerned that members of the extremist, anti-immigrant group called Soldiers of Odin (SOO) managed to crash a UCP candidate’s fundraiser at an Edmonton pub. The UCP has repudiated them. I’d say, get concerned when a Soldier of Odin becomes a member of the UCP caucus. Not going to happen.

But, the NDP actually has Marxists in their caucus. Marxism is that 20th century plague that destroyed economies around the world and killed a hundred million people. On the other hand, in the last 30 years since the downfall of Marxism, Capitalism has lifted a billion people out of poverty!

But the fact that Marxism and its various offspring; communism, fascism (think Antifa), and socialism, still retain any credibility whatsoever, is testament to the fact that far too many people let their emotions drive their actions instead of letting facts drive their emotions, and, from there, to action. Sadly, our universities, and even our schools are still polluted with Marxism friendly professors, and teachers, and they’re busily indoctrinating your children and grandchildren. Be alarmed!

What’s needed is cultural change, and it needs to start immediately, and we need to recognize that it will be a long term project. After all, the Marxists have spent the last 80 years taking their “long slow march through the institutions of the West.” Google that phrase, and be appalled by how successful they’ve been.

To US politics: Jordan Peterson recently tweeted that he thinks that Brett Kavanaugh, having been duly confirmed as an associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States, should reduce the political heat by stepping down. I disagree, and I suspect that on further reflection, Dr. Peterson will as well.

What Kavanaugh’s accuser said happened 35 years ago was not corroborated, but in fact, repudiated by each the four witnesses that she named. The evidence didn’t come remotely close to implicating Kavanaugh beyond a reasonable doubt, and that used to be the standard we went by.

For the past 60 years or so, Conservatives all over the Western world have been stepping down, backpedaling, and retreating because of pressure, lately manifesting as tantrums, by left-wing politicians, entertainers, and media. Conservatives need to get a backbone.

For Kavanaugh to have stepped down would send the message to the tantrum throwers, that they can control the political agenda just by “pitchin a fit” every time they’re unhappy, which is pretty much all the time. It’s time to shut that down, and Brett Kavanaugh spending the next 30 years on the Supreme Court is a good start.

And now to Science. I got thinking about Meritha’s closet the other day, and that got me thinking about Jordan Peterson’s monster bestseller; “12 Rules for Life, An Antidote to Chaos”. In one chapter, Peterson talks about lobsters and how both we and they arrange ourselves hierarchically, which is apparently due to a genetic connection we had millions of years ago. It’s in our DNA.

shoesI don’t know if anybody has, but I think it would be worthwhile to explore my hypothesis which is that women have an ancient genetic connection to centipedes.

Otherwise, why so many shoes?

**The photo is NOT of Meritha, or her closet! ( After 51 years, my survival instincts are honed)

For those of us in Western Canada, there’s good news because Autumn is (hopefully) coming next week! Autumn and winter got mixed up this year and winter came first. Climate change I presume?

The Right to Discriminate

Dave 07To Discriminate means to recognize a distinction between things. I think that even the dimmest among us recognizes that red and green are two different colors and that some people have better voices than others and some people are better athletes than others. So we discriminate when we go to a concert, or an athletic event.

But discrimination also means to make an unjust or prejudicial distinction in the treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, sex, or age. I think that most people recognize that that type of discrimination is seriously wrong, but should it be illegal? As a Christian with a distinctly libertarian bent, I don’t think so, unless it advocates, or acts out violence.

But then, at an even deeper level, discrimination finds itself at the intersect between choices, and rights, and that’s where a lot of seriously wrongheaded thinking takes place, particularly as regards sexuality.

I’m straight, and I had no choice in that matter; it’s just what I am. But nearly 52 years ago I made a choice to end my single existence, and to get married. However, my choice was not automatically granted; I had to ask Meritha, (it was on about the 5th date and at first she thought I was joking), and she had to accept, otherwise I might still be single.

My heterosexuality was not a choice; but to be married was, and it was contingent on the acceptance of my choice by someone else. And even then, after I had Meritha on side, we  had to choose when and where to be married; who to perform the ceremony; who to cater, and so on. And every one of our choices had to be agreed to by someone else, and every one of those individuals had every right to refuse our choice, on any grounds whatsoever.

Recently, the US Supreme Court upheld a Colorado baker’s right to refuse to bake a cake celebrating a same-sex marriage. It’s regarded as a victory for freedom of religion, but there are some questions as to how effective it will be in the long run. Because there is increasingly a lot of severely muddle-headed thinking around sexuality.

So again, here’s what I think. It’s not scientifically supported, but let’s allow that the same-sex couple in Colorado were both born gay and that they had no choice in their sexual attraction. But their “marriage” unequivocally represented a continuum of choices. First of all, who to marry. Once they were past that hurdle, who to perform the ceremony, where to hold the ceremony and the celebration afterwards. Then, who to cater the event, and who they chose to make the cake.

Every one of those was a choice, not a right, and for the marriage plans to go forward, those choices either had be accepted by the other parties involved, or a different choice made. I personally see no reason that those choices could not be refused on any grounds whatsoever, but for certain, a person should have been able to refuse them on the grounds of their freedom of association, or of conscience. Those are universally recognized human rights. Marriage is not an inherent human right, nor are the rituals surrounding marriage.

trans-man-having-babyWe need to start to think clearly about sexuality, because when you don’t you end up with situations like this.

Try to figure it out.

Then think of the child.
