The 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.
(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.
There 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.
Rather than writing my own blog this week, I’m going to provide a link to an excellent article that should be read by every Albertan, and every Canadian, and every American, and every awake citizen in the Western world. It examines the stark contrast between the intellectually chaotic and unrealistic world of left-wing Progressivist policy, against a carefully researched and analyzed platform that should actually be a feature of every election campaign.
The article provides the most authoritative analysis of the recent Alberta election that you are ever likely to read. It’s 5 to 10 minutes long, and worth every second. Author, Mark Milke is an economist’s economist, and it was brilliant of Jason Kenney to get Dr. Milke and other recognized experts involved in developing the United Conservative Party’s platform.
Incidentally, since winning the election, the Kenney government has tasked an expert panel to develop a roadmap to get Alberta’s economy back on track. It is led by former Saskatchewan NDP, yes, that’s NDP Minister of Finance, Janice McKinnon, who in the 1990s guided Saskatchewan from fiscal ruin, to balanced and surplus budgets. Watch the link. No matter whether you are a Kenney fan or not, you must admit it is a brilliant managerial and political move!
Rachel Notley and the NDP came to power in in Alberta four years ago. Here’s why we can’t allow them to have another four years.
The NDP inherited a mess in 2015, mostly caused by a collapse in world oil prices, and also the wild spending Progressivists in the former government. But while the petroleum industries in other jurisdictions around the world have long since recovered, Alberta’s continues to bleed investment and jobs due to the NDPs anti-business policies. Don’t believe Rachel Notley’s “fighting for pipelines” rhetoric. In fact, as recently as a couple of months ago, Rachel Notley hired another oil industry hating activist as an advisor to her government. Until her phony recent “conversion”, she’s always fought against Alberta’s petroleum industry. Under an NDP government, investment,and jobs will continue to go elsewhere, and, as used to be the case in Saskatchewan, Alberta’s youth will get luggage sets for graduation.
The NDP promised a balanced budget this year, and instead we are again facing a huge deficit, or annual shortfall, which will bring Alberta’s accumulated debt to nearly $50 billion. Almost all of that debt was accumulated under the NDP. Another four years of Rachel Notley and the NDP, and Albertans are facing a provincial debt of nearly $100 billion.Who will pay for it?
I’ve had this conversation with most of my grandchildren, and you might want to have the conversation with your children and grandchildren, because they’re the ones that are going to pay for Alberta’s debt.
Use this post if you wish.
You young people should know that $100 billion is $25,000 for every person in Alberta. But older people that are out of the workplace, like me, and even people in the later stages of their career, will not be around to pay that debt. It’s young people like you that will be responsible for our share of the debt as well as yours, so at the end of another four years of the NDP, your share will be closer to $30,000 to $40,000. That’s a degree, or a brand-new car, or a down payment on a house.
Young people have compassion for those that need help, and that’s a very good thing. But when taxes go pay interest on government debt, the money cannot go to help the needy; instead it goes to banks, and other lenders.
When a government’s debt gets out of control, here’s what happens. Justin Trudeau’s father, Pierre Trudeau (Justin’s father is on the right, his buddy Fidel Castro, a communist dictator, on the left), began putting Canada into serious debt in the late 1960s, borrowing as if money grew on trees. No government in the following 25 years tried to stop it, and by the mid-1990s, or 25 years ago, nearly 40%, or 40 cents of every dollar raised in taxeswent to paying interest on the debt, instead of being available for social programs. Finally, when Canada was about to go bankrupt, a Canadian government stopped reckless spending and started paying off the debt.
Now, 25 years later, Justin Trudeau is following in his father’s footsteps and borrowing Canada back into more debt, something he promised not to do, and something for you to remember this October when we have a federal election.
But Rachel Notley is doing exactly the same thing to Alberta’s finances and to your future. There’s an election tomorrow, and you need to think carefully about how you vote. Because federally or provincially, it’s about your debt, and your future.
Today, the day before the election, I’m happy to report that most of my grandchildren have voted, (the 16 year old is ticked off because 16 year olds can’t vote), and they voted for change,
There 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.

**Social media works, but only if you LIKE, and SHARE.
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?!
When confronted with absoluteproof 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.
These 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?
Luckily 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!

Please Share with your email list and Like on Facebook and Twitter! Social media is the culture shaping tool of the 21st century, so let’s use it! It’s vitally important that we have informed Albertans before the provincial election this spring.
Here’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.
Compare 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!
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.
Because 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.
Mr. 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 italong, 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.

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)
Wells 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?
Did 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.
I 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.

**In April 2019, the NDP was thrown out of office, and replaced by a more conservative party which is rolling back some of the more extreme ideas of the radicals. But the extremist Progressivists are resisting every step of the way.
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!
**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 nottell 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.
I don’t think it’s a secret to anyone that I’m a small C conservative who believes that the politics we get result from the culture we create.
This blog, and the Let’s Do It Ourselves (LDIO™) online community, are dedicated to fostering a culture in which individual rights are protected, not overrun, by the State; a culture where parents and not the State, are acknowledged as those who have the legitimate and primary interest in the greatest good for their children.
LDIO™ is about fostering a culture where citizens, cooperating at the most local level possible, is recognized as preferable to governments, “doing something.”
I have believed, and have argued for many years, that one of the biggest problems for conservatism is timidity; our leaders making a panicky grab for the reverse gear as soon as someone from the mainstream/left-wing media challenges one of our ideas. That has to end.
During the United Conservative Party (UCP) leadership race, I would have preferred to remain neutral. But I’m concerned that Brian Jean – who I absolutely believe is a good man – has proven repeatedly that he is terrified of the media, and that the very phrase, “bozo eruption” causes his heart to palpitate. That’s a problem.
Objecting to Alberta Education inserting itself between children and their parents is not a bozo eruption. It’s the common sense, moderate position.
Objecting to children being provided links to pornography on the Alberta Education (Alberta taxpayers funded), Gay Straight Alliance, or GSA website, is not a bozo eruption. Nor is it being “hysterical”, or “sensationalist”, as suggested by Kris Wells, Alberta Education’s advisor on the project. Again, it’s the common sense, moderate position.
Yet, the Alberta government and its “comrades” (that’s a word they actually use) in the radical LGBTQ community, have managed to characterize themselves, and their agenda, as moderate. Very few in the political arena have pointed out the obvious absurdity.
As the NDP government continues to advance it’s objective of sidelining parents from their children, and stamping out educational choice, their many support organizations like Progress Alberta, and the Alberta Teachers Association, brazenly misinform the public.
They lie about the economic realities of alternate schools, which, in fact, subsidize the public system, and they lie about the rights of parents to choose their child’s education, which, in fact, is the law, and, by the way, common sense, and they attack anyone who objects.
The only UCP leadership candidate that has been prepared to vocally stand up to this radically immoderate and illegal nonsense, is Jason Kenney. Conservatives need to remember that over the next few days, as they choose a new leader for the United Conservative Party of Alberta.
I’ve heard Jason Kenney described as a slick politician, but I’ve known him and watched him for a number of years, and what he clearly is, is a very polished politician. There’s a huge difference between slick and polished, and in national and international negotiations, it will make a huge difference.
Of course, Brian Jean is a good man, and if he’s chosen leader, his conservative resolve can be strengthened by knowing that the majority of Albertans have his back.
The crucial issue is that the Radical Progressivists must be removed, and, positive for the left, that will make room for the NDP to be refurbished with moderate leftists, like Rachel Notley’s father. When the apple fell off that tree, it rolled a long way down hill!
