Dear Barb: You fucking suck.


Courtesy of jj, we learn that the National Prat's Barbara Kay doesn't mind lifting copy from others:

Those women who hate the bill may be a minority, but they are noisy, if not exactly rational. Hear them roar — yes, hysterically — on the blogosphere: “Dear Liberals: You f****** suck” and “every one of [you] should be marked for political death” reflects the betrayal that furious feminists see in the critical support given to C-484 by 28 Liberals — Liberals!!! — who dared to vote with the Conservatives.

Why, yes, that was me, thanks ever so much for the utter lack of attribution, Barb.

Here's a thought, MSM -- if you're going to constantly look down your noses at us uncivil, deranged, noisy bloggers, how about not quietly walking off with our text as you're doing it?

It's just a thought.

AFTERSNARK: You have to love this bit of idiocy from Barbie (emphasis added):

Those women who hate the bill may be a minority, but they are noisy, if not exactly rational. Hear them roar — yes, hysterically — on the blogosphere: “Dear Liberals: You f****** suck” ...

How the hell do these people keep getting work? Seriously.

Barbara Kay - Fuck you.
Seriously.

You are a good for nothing apologist with a narrow world view. Neo-Con, Zionist, and anti-choice - the idiots trifecta dream.

So what did the Quebec Press Council say about her:
"The Council noted throughout the chronicle of Mrs. Kay a lack of rigour in the presentation of the context surrounding the walk for peace of August 2006, which tends to encourage the reader to lend intentions to public personalities without providing concrete facts to support these intentions. On several occasions in the chronicle, the journalist deformed facts, to present only a part of the situation, aiming only at supporting her point of view that the leaders of independent Quebec would withdraw the Hezbollah of the list of the terrorist movements and that this new country would become a harbour for them. The Council points out that, if the chroniclers can denounce with strength the ideas and the actions which they reject and carry judgements with complete freedom, nothing however authorizes them to deteriorate facts to justify interpretation that they draw. Deontology of the Council Press clearly established that the media and the professionals of information must avoid cultivating or to maintain the prejudices. They must imperatively avoid using, at the place of the people or the groups, the representations or the terms which tend to raise the contempt, to run up against the dignity of a person or a category of people because of a discriminatory reason. The Council estimated that the remarks of the journalist were equivalent to an undue provocation, in addition to establishing generalizations suitable to perpetuate the prejudices rather than to dissipate them"

In other words - a liar.

CWTF:

I notice that you addressed your comment directly and explicitly to Ms. Kay. Therefore, you clearly mean to cause her emotional harm and I will simply not have that around here.

Oh, wait ... yes, I will. Never mind, then. Carry on.

And the ignorant harridan's article still refers to "NDP MP, Peter Stollar..." I'd complain about that rag's editors, but, really...what editors? When publishing one ignorant rightwing whacko after another, editorial excellence is obviously not something The National Post really cares about. Hasn't for many years, after all.

Sycophants such as Mrs. Kay may read this blog – I would not be surprised if most of the insecure media to Google their name to see how people are reacting to their articles. Paul Wells came across as childish on Red Tory’s but at least he ventured.
I’m certain Mrs. Kay, if she came here, would make dikk or dr roy seem like geniuses. While Wanda may never wander here, Mrs Kay may.
If she does, well here’s my message to you: “Fuck you, you self-righteous idiot cunt”.

Ti-Guy said...

Oh, now you've done it. She'll never venture onto a blog that uses the H-Bomb of incivility.

Although she'll quote that lavishly, the next time it suits her purposes, that's guaranteed.

As far as childishness is concerned, a lot of the people in the media become petulant when criticised, but some I forgive because they do work hard and they do have to stick to deadlines and space restrictions and editorial control and also have to shmooze with a lot of people they can't personally stand in order to maintain access. But, on the whole, anyone who works for the establishment media these days, especially news and current affairs (which are almost completely dependent on business decisions) is to a great extent, selling out.

Well, apparently, that nastyboot-wearing Lulu has taken over solo "she who must be obeyed" helm of the blog when you weren't looking, CC *and* alerted the MSM to the fact, all while making you think she's working hard in the trenches for a living.

Gad, she's good. Fear.

Frank Frink said...

CC, you hysterical woman you!

There, that ought to make it easier for Dickie boy to track you down.

LuLu said...

Why thank you, Niles.

"How the hell do these people keep getting work?"

Um... you do know that Barbara Kay is Jonathan Kay's mummy, right?

That's how.

the rev. paperboy said...

Hay-sus H. Christ on a cracker! First Patsy declares excathedra that PSA is lady and now Kay think CC is an angry woman. What next, Jonah Goldberg piping up about how macho men like Lulu should be in Iraq? These conservatives and their endless painstaking research.....

I'm picturing an oil patch version of the Little Britain bit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMGRNF1Kx8g&feature=related)

I believe someone here has previously referenced them as Canada's Lucienne and Jonah.
