Where Did Speech Police Come From?

August 1st, 2018 | Liberty 5-3000

In reflecting on the origins of the modern Speech Police, we often think its origins lie in Mao’s Political Correctness. Mao, who saw himself as the arbiter of what was appropriate Marxist thought, would have people arrested, sent to work camps or killed for uttering speech that strayed from party-lines. While Canada, surprisingly, has no work camps as of the writing of this article, everyday people find themselves banned from social media, unable to hold rallies and public events, find themselves in jeopardy of losing their jobs, or worse, are dragged through the Human Rights’ complaint process. The emergence of the quasi Marxist-Postmodernist movement, and the subsequent justifications for the policing of politically incorrect thought grew out of more than just Mao’s Political Correctness. These justifications have their origins, unsurprisingly, in the left-wing dominated fields of linguistics and anthropology. 

This Is What 2019 Will Look Like

August 1st, 2018 | S.P.

One needs not look further than the CBC to see what the Liberal agenda will be for the 2019 federal election. Gender politics, gun control and Trumpism will be the main talking points used against Conservatives in the next election, so we can more than definitely count on a dirty, filthy campaign instigated by Gerald Butts and his delightfully dim sidekick, Justin Trudeau. Divisive rhetoric, comparisons to Donald Trump and accusations of racism and gun nuttery will be what Andrew Scheer and Conservatives face next fall. Trudeau's promise of sunny ways will be littered with the usual mischaracterizations of conservative ideas, exaggerations of truth and ever so subtle mud-slinging with the usual sprinkling of Liberal politicking—which always includes an endless stream of empty platitudes and Liberal fun words. Make no mistake about it, my friends, the 2019 federal election will be the most divisive and dirty election we have seen in decades, but the CBC will tell us that it is all because of the racist, alt-right Conservative Party and its Americanized band of Trumpian lunatics.

Alberta Separation Is A Great Idea

August 1st, 2018 | J. Hodgson

There is a short video on the subject produced by Poletical as well. So that’s where our two organizations stand on the issue. Tristin makes a variety of tired arguments detailing why Alberta separation is an impossibility. I’ll summarize his article and destroy his arguments one-by-one. The first thing he writes about is how Alberta would be dependent on foreign countries for exports, imports and tourism. He mentions that we’d need permission to pass through Canadian airspace.This would hardly be a problem. Alberta would grant open airspace to Canadians flying to British Columbia as well. Just because we are free of Canada’s shackles doesn’t mean we can’t have reciprocal air space cooperation. Unless Canada wants British Columbia cut off from the rest of Canada, I would suggest we keep international relations friendly.

Russia Meddled, Obama Did Nothing

August 1st, 2018 | T. Carter

Last month's Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki is still being talked about today, even after Trump clarified his agreement that Russia attempted to meddle in America's election. Correcting “would” to “wouldn't” in a press conference the next day, Trump clarified his stance on Russian meddling—but it was not good enough for the mainstream media, who had already lambasted him for throwing America's intelligence agencies under the bus, because they were set on perpetuating that narrative long before the summit even happened. In all of their theatrical outrage, the media forgot to give Trump credit for telling the truth about how the Obama Administration was aware of Russian meddling but did nothing.

Oil Was The Right Investment

August 1st, 2018 | J. Hodson

Using conservative ideology in order to invest is a good and practical habit to have. We know that conservative principles function in the real world and that’s why we embrace them. Leftists want the world to operate the way they wish it would... we accept the world operating the way we know it will anyway. It’s practical and realistic. In terms of investing, don’t get sucked into fads and leftist fortune telling. Green energy is a long way away from arriving in a realistic fashion. We’ll be using copious amounts of oil and gas for the rest of our lives. Wind farms are garbage and solar panels aren’t much better. Other leftist things to avoid are marijuana stocks and cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. Beware becoming a doomsday gold bug as well. I did that for awhile and it got me nowhere.  

Conservatives Can Win Burnaby South

August 10th, 2018 | R. Rados

I don't know about you, but it sounds like some of Burnaby's residents are getting fed up—and we all know what happens when people get angry. Not only are they fed up with protesters protesting Canada's own economic progress, they're probably fed up with the rest of Canada thinking their city is made up of nothing more than entitled, latte-guzzling liberals and smelly, jobless eco-freaks. It sounds to me like resentment is brewing in Burnaby. If this isn't the perfect time for the Conservative Party to swoop in, there will never be a perfect time. If Andrew Scheer spends a big percentage of his time between now and the by-election campaigning on economic progress in Burnaby South, his party might get the 3,000 extra votes it needs to take the seat from Jagmeet Singh.
