Holy! Fucking! Shit!


Apparently, the National Post doesn't think it's quite offensive enough.

Looks like Stephen Harper lost a few things during his move to 24 Sussex Drive. Namely, a principle or two.

Not to mention the National Post for inviting Five Feet of Crazy™ to write a column. That's really scraping the bottom of teh wingnut barrel.

I caught Shaidle's performance on Michael Coren's show a few weeks ago, and I was astonished at how poorly she argues her case. She kept referring to the human rights commissions as "quasi-legal" and the lawyer had to remind her that entities defined by statutes are entirely legal.

Mike Brock was only slightly less embarrassing with his hysterics (and lack of information) about Hugo Chavez (he seemed to have forgotten that Hugo Chavez had been removed from power in a coup for while), but I digress...

Anyway, it all boiled down to her ranting assertion that we're making hate illegal, which is complete nonsense. She really has to be dismissed as a self-agrandising lunatic who, in a less enlightened society, would have been locked up by now.

I had hoped "the furious nobody" would soon lapse into self-parody, at which point she'd become worth the attention, but I really don't think she's smart enough, or properly socialised enough to pull that off. She's been recently whining about the Canadian cult of decency, failing to notice, I guess, how many of us call her a "cunt" all the time.

...something I (and everyone I know) wouldn't hesitate to call her to her face, at this point.

I think unemployment (or unemployability) must be wearing her down. Every third post now is an appeal to buy her book, and the humorless anti-Muslim nastiness is getting more and more intense.

Chet Scoville said...

Well, at least now Levant and co. understand that Harper has kicked them to the curb. That's kind of fun to watch.

Red Tory said...

It shouldn't be long before she wears out her welcome with many readers of the National Post. i.e., The ones who aren't batshit crazy bigots. I believe there are a few.

Francis Walsingham said...

I notice that Kathy Shaidle aka Five Feet of Crazy™ is writing for the National Post, something that neither CC nor the regular posters on this blog will ever achieve.

That must completely irk you morons...

Red Tory said...

How's that brand new Blogger account workin' out for you there, Francis?

LuLu said...

Francis Walsingham? Seriously? Was William Cecil already taken?

A sockpuppet with delusions of "Spy Master" grandeur ...

Cräbgräšš said...

Personally, I'm super-irked.

Francis, you read me like a book.

Okay, sorry, bad example. You read me like a Toronto Sun headline.

"It shouldn't be long before she wears out her welcome with many readers of the National Post"

Anyone care to make it interesting?

$10 says 4 more (increasingly spittle-flecked) articles til the NatPo plants a boot in her flabby ass.

LuLu said...

I'll take some of that action, JJ. I give her 5 more before the true flavour of her particular brand of crazy proves too much.

jj said...

lulu - I think it might be a one-off anyway.

I notice that last Wednesday in the same location ("Today's Paper") they ran that piece by the batshit crazy Denise whats her name... maybe this is a new series, "Wednesday Wingnut Extravaganza"?

Somena Woman said...

I'm a regular reader of CC, and I used to write some pieces for the National Post, a few articles on Indian Affairs and some co-book reviews with Liz Nickson.

So suck on that to the idiot who claimed nobody here could ever achieve this.

I also wrote for the Winnipeg Free Press.So suck on that.

After Ken Whyte left the NP just wasn't the same.

I wonder if Johnny Kay knows exactly what Kathy Shaidle has written in the past about Aboriginals, Black people and here infamous "News Flash Muslims Are Stupid Retards".

I say she lasts a little longer than Rachel Marsden, but will have trouble coming up with new things to say on a regular basis and slowly start submitting stuff that the editors know won't make it past the lawyers.

Ti-Guy said...

The National Post is not long for this world.

Somena Woman said...

Yep... I wonder how long the Aspers want to keep losing millions of dollars for a vanity project. The NP has not ever made a profit... EVER in it's entire existence.

And just so you know.. I was at the post when they paid big bucks for stories. Now they only pay $150.00 per 1000 word article, thereabouts.

Don't worry - this gig that Kathy landed thanks to Mark Steyn's shilling for her.... (does anybody other than me find it odd that Steyn won't write for the paper because it doesn't meet his lofty standards but he does encourage Kathy to write for it...hmmmmm)
.... won't keep her off of welfare. Even if she was getting 2 articles in a week, it's less than $350 a week before taxes.

People can make better money than that tending bar or being a waitress in a good restaurant on night shift.

Might not be the best career path of a repulisive, antisocial bridge-dweller like Shaidle though.

jj said...

HAHAHAHAHA!

Somena Woman said...

As I just wrote to CC, I notice that Kathy has reprinted her "column" on the Shotgun blog.

When I wrote for the Post I had to sign a contract for them. The contract specified that they had the right of first reprint and I had to ask permission before reprinting or posting it.

T.C the editor I did the Aboriginal stuff for said it was ok to reprint so long as I waited till the article was off the website and that I attributed it to them.

So I don't think Kathy has signed any contract with the NP. They would not look favourably upon her reprinting-posting it elsewhere if they had paid her for it.

But that's just my guess. The contract I signed was pretty sticky about this sort of thing.

Isn't "many readers of the National Post" an oxymoron?

Somena Woman said...

What... you don't count the freebies they give away as part of their circulation either?

PS - I was wrong about Kathy reprinting her article at the Shotgun. My bad. She just linked to it at the Shotgun and mentioned it on Five Feet of Xtra Crazy, as well as quoting from it.

Maybe they actually did hire her.

jj said...

"Maybe they actually did hire her."

Awesome, then the bet's back on.
$10, 4 articles, boot.

Somena Woman said...

My final conclusion....

These guys who hired Kathy are freaking geniuses, now that I think of it.

Richard said...

Hey, did you guys see that I upped the ante on info regarding CC? He's worth $750.00 now... Seven hundred and fifty cold, hard, tax free dollars...

Somena Woman said...

Why do you want to know Richard?

Do you want to pretend to be a holocaust survivor *again* to play another "joke" but you need CCs real address to deliver the doctored photos making a mockery of atrocities against Jews?

You know, for "teh giggles" you get out of it?

Somena Woman said...

You know what, this is something I've just noticed...

-- It's only when commentary about the two KKKs or other prominent crazy-right-wing retards really really hits hard that Dick or those like him climb out from under their collectivist rocks and start braying the usual threats and comments like the above.

I think it's great that Dick here is our own private weathervane about whether or not the commentary on the two KKKs has really hit home.

You know you're really under the skin when Dick pops up like a demented whack-a-mole on meth.

SoThanks for letting us know when it weally weally "hurts" Dick! What an invaluable service you provide!

Keep up the great werk!
You really ought to try and make a show of being less predictable than this.

Just sayin'.

the rev. said...

Just think, another hundred turns at the glory hole where Dick spends his off hours and he can up the bounty to an even grand.

Ti-Guy said...

You really should stop the online stalking and harrassment, Richard. It's so...y'know...illegal.

LuLu said...

Dick, Dick, NAMBLA-DICK ... I'll say the same thing to you that I said to Patrick earlier. You're crush on CC Central is getting a little uncomfortable. We're just not that into you.

CC said...

It's entertaining to watch Dick preen himself and occasionally suggest that I have some kind of single-minded obsession with him.

I'm guessing that would be the same single-minded obsession I have with Patsy Ross. And Kate McMillan. And Brian Lemon. And Stephen Taylor. And Raphael Alexander. And dr. roy. And Denyse O'Leary. And Suzie All-Caps. And JoJo. And Neo Conservative. And Celestial Junk's "Paul." And ... and ...

Well, you get the idea. I'm sure each and every one of them sits at home in the evening, congratulating themselves on how they are the sole and exclusive focus of my attention.

The reality is, of course, not quite so exciting. But don't tell them, since all you'd hear would be the sound of rapidly-deflating egos.

LuLu said...

Where do you find the time to obsess over all these fucktards, CC?

Ti-Guy said...

What is it...racist harridan week at The National Post?

I bet lil' Dickie will have a column up by tomorrow, just so it doesn't look sexist.

Odd that the Asper's empire would feature someone who thinks Holocaust victims are hilarious. And this, during the week when the Asper's Human Rights Museum in Winnipeg becomes a national museum.

Contradictions abound.

Letters to the editor-in-chief here. Remember...it's spelled C-U-N-T.

Ah gee, you're dropping names and leave me out? Hurts...

:-) But seriously, I was surprised that another blogger scooped you on this. I don't remember where I saw this yesterday, but the news was quite shocking. I guess it is a usual event for the NP to give a column to a racist.

((Hey, did you guys see that I upped the ante on info regarding CC? He's worth $750.00 now... Seven hundred and fifty cold, hard, tax free dollars...))

...tax free? How does that work? Are you planning on giving it in cash under the table in an envelope? Or are you just counting on the fact whoever would take you up on that would:
a) be a tax dodger and/or penurious.

b) would trust you to come through with the bounty money after you're provided with the correct information on CC? Which I presume would also require said informant exposing identity enough to you to have the money sent to the proper address. Unless you opt for a face to face exchange in an alley somewhere.

Not that you had much credibility to start with, but the stunt with the tattoo puts you into Kelvin scale negative integers. Not to mention your public incitement to avoid Revenue Canada. Definitely items to put on your resume the next time you decide to run for public office.

Ti-Guy said...

Oh, that's just the Alberta way.

An in-law of mine (who I can't stand) in Calgary just got done in for under-reporting her online/home business (ie ponzi scheme) revenue. I only wish I had shopped her off to the taxman myself, but only Richard Evans engages in that kind of prickish behaviour.

Raphael Alexander said...

You have an obsession with me? I figured it with was just a kind of tiny crush...

Raphael Alexander said...

Goddamned last time I type while trying to watch a YouTube video at the same time...
