First, Lemaire gets all weepy thusly:
Have I felt it unethical to blog anonymously? - yes the issue has been of concern to me.
So our first revelation is that Mr. Lemaire is an idiot, since there's nothing whatsoever unethical about blogging anonymously, and I see no reason for him to apologize for it, but that's when the douchebagitude starts, as Lemaire's sidebar reads:
In Canada, saying the wrong thing even in jest can drag you through Star Chamber tribunals and commissions without the benefit of due process, can bankrupt you, destroy your career and your family, result in lifetime bans on free speech and expression (of the Gospel, no less) and ultimately even lead to imprisonment.
And yet, curiously, we have the Missus, who openly admits:
A commenter at BCF is threatening to file a Section 13 complaint against me.
I've been TRYING to get a "hate speech" complaint for years now, by purposefully saying politically incorrect things about every ethnic group, including my own, on this blog.
I'm thinking that it would be nice if Mr. and Mrs. Blazing Stupid Racist could get their stories straight. Seriously, it's hard to whinge on about the horrific trampling of free expression in Canada when you can't get busted for that even when you're trying.
Or am I the only person who noticed that logical disconnect?
CORRECTION: I had thought BCF/Lemaire was a Blogging Tory. I stand corrected.
CONNED! One wonders if TVO's Steve Paikin is feeling ever so suckered since -- as Ti-Guy points out in the comments -- Lemaire was all over Paikin's blog, posting as BCF and supporting the little woman. If Paikin had any principles, he should at least have the class to be embarrassed.
Yeah, that'll happen.
