- Jordan Peterson fan bois: "When Liberals cry, it's because they're delicate, pansy-assed snowflakes who need to suck it up and grow a pair."
- Also Jordan Peterson fan bois: "When Jordan Peterson cries, it's only because he cares so deeply about the world, and it makes me love him even more."
See how that works?

- Dr. Jordan B. Peterson makes a fortune lecturing pansy-ass incels on the importance of being real men.
- Dr. Jordan B. Peterson cries pathetically on air because Olivia Wilde made fun of him.
This cannot possibly be real:
APPARENTLY, this is real, which inspires the obvious question ... what is a "skilled" religious professional? What level of "skill" does it take to believe wholeheartedly and unabashedly in an invisible sky fairy?
P.S. It must be infuriating for Alberta's health care professionals, who have been absolutely fucked over by the UCP, to read that that same government is bending over backwards to accommodate the import of Bible-whomping imbeciles. That's gotta sting.
Notice anything missing here? Why, yes ... the flight attendant's reason for this, which she would certainly have broadcast to the passengers, and which was most likely (and I have encountered this) that the customs area was so congested that they wanted to give it a chance to clear.
As an alternative, Sue-Ann Levy is simply a whiny twatwaffle with a ludicrous sense of entitlement. There's that, too.
It's not like I haven't warned you about this maybe eleventy gazillion times over the last couple years, but here's the latest casualty of Rebel News' "Fight the Fines" supergrift, wherein Rebel News' openly encouraged people to deliberately not follow public health regulations and amass spectacular fines with the promise of what has turned out to be hilariously inept but free legal representation:
So, a few things about this.
First, as I have explained on more occasions than I care to count, I warned that that entire grift involved Der Rebel offering, not to pay any fines, but to simply hand over bags of cash to a carefully-selected group of lawyers who would get thigh-suckingly rich off of all that dosh, while hanging said clients out to dry to pay their own fines once they lost in the court. (And if one follows developments, many of those gullible marks are now losing bigly.) In any event, that is observation one: Not a dime of any of that donated money will ever see its way into paying the eventual fines; rather, every dollar of it is going to Rebel News and its lawyers. This is not a controversial statement, it's in the very definition of that grift:
None of the above is surprising, this has been covered before. But there's more.
On top of the fines, said gullible marks will also be liable for associated court costs, which Rebel News will not pay and which, in some cases, are actually more than the fines:
So who knows what the costs are in this case, but Church on the Vine is going to have to hand over all of that as well. And is that as bad as it gets? Of course not.
Note above that Rebel News' "Queen of the Grift" Sheila Gunn Reid (she of the chicken bucket fundraiser) insists that, by gosh, they're going to stand by those devoutly religious lawbreakers and, by gosh, they're going to appeal, which will undoubtedly have the following results:
- They're going to lose again and be hit with further costs, and
- Once again, a lawyer or two is going to get a bag of cash and Church of the Vine is going to have to hand over tons of fines and costs, whereupon Rebel News will undoubtedly tell them, "Well, we tried but, hey, it sucks to be you."
- Rebel News openly encouraging people to break the law in terms of refusing to obey public health regulations, followed by ...
- ... lawyers supplied by that same Rebel News assuring their clients that their victory in court was a slam-dunk sure thing, when those lawyers absolutely must have known that was not even remotely true.

"Freedom Convoy": "I took a leave of absence from my job in Red Deer and, without my employer's permission, took one of his big rigs, blew a pile of money dressing it up with Canadian flags and 'FUCK TRUDEAU' banners, spent thousands of dollars driving across a prairie winter and Northern Ontario eating in shitty restaurants to hook up with a bunch of Nazis and racists in Ottawa where I spent three weeks sleeping in my truck in February and getting parking tickets and pissing into a bottle, and the cops finally came and seized my truck, and my boss found out and fired me, and my wife left me and took the kids and now I'm wondering how to get home and who's going to hire me now that my trucker's license was revoked and my insurance was suspended, and I'm still due in court later this year and might end up with a criminal record but ... FREEDOM!!!"
Me: "I spent 14 minutes yesterday getting a free booster at a Shoppers Drug Mart down the street. But, hey, good luck with your life choices."

Alberta announces it will no longer participate in the federal oil subsidies program. It will not enforce it, nor force any Alberta oil companies to take that money. Justice Minister Tyler Shandro calls Ottawa's relentless annual giveaway of billions of federal dollars to Alberta's obscenely wealthy oil companies "politically motivated" and "an overreach."
No, no, just kidding. I mean, can you imagine?
In the midst of the current Rebecca Bromwich-driven dust-up regarding whether local Ottawa eatery Stella Luna should be forgiven for actively supporting the massively not-peaceful and illegal three-week occupation of downtown Ottawa last February, there is one point that I feel is going unaddressed.
In this case (and, it appears, many others), the after-the-fact excuse for that kind of appalling behaviour seems to be, "Well, we donated early on when it was just a fun protest and we wanted to support them and their cause, and we had no idea that it would turn into an actual siege with Nazis and racists and white nationalists and people carrying Confederate flags and 'Fuck Trudeau' banners and people openly calling for Liberals to be killed and ... blah blah blah. We had no idea!"
This. Is. Bullshit.
The ugliness of that three weeks in February did not start out pleasantly and slowly morph into what was pretty much a military action, replete with organizers demanding the resignation of the government and parading around with Nazi banners and the like. It was what it was right from the beginning; in fact, even before the first truck rolled into town.
There is no conceivable way that someone can sincerely claim that they had no idea what was coming. Daily news coverage made it unmistakably clear that what was converging on Ottawa was an army of angry insurrectionists, many of their vehicles festooned with anti-Trudeau vulgarity, and the occasional protester suggesting that the proper way to deal with the Prime Minister was with a bullet or two.
We knew what was coming. We all knew what was coming. So stop lying about it.
It's ludicrous for anyone to justify their treasonous support for the financially devastating occupation of downtown Ottawa for three weeks with the lame excuse that, gosh, they just didn't know, if only someone had told them. Everybody told them, and they didn't care, and they donated anyway.
More to the point, even if that occupying force had been lawful and peaceful and pleasant and filled with nothing more than hot tubs and bouncy castles, keep in mind that its public purpose was to demand that the government stop enforcing public health policy whose only purpose was to try to stop people from getting sick and dying of COVID-19.
So, no, Stella Luna (and others), you don't get a pass on your financial support of all that fascism. You knew what this was all about, and you handed over cash, anyway. Now you can live with the consequences.

But now ...
Shut up. Please, just shut up.
P.S. I don't think people recognize the fundamental problem Bromwich has here, and it's that, regardless of what people think of Stella Luna, it seems spectacularly unethical for Bromwich to be promoting a private business as part of her political campaign. What is it about Stella Luna that Bromwich thinks entitles them to free publicity as part of her campaign?
Man who literally hand-delivered coffee and pastries to "Freedom Convoy" participants who berated, harassed and threatened women during "Freedom Convoy" occupation in February will now be absolutely outraged by (*checks notes*) the berating, harassing and threatening of women.

And in the ongoing series of "I'm 24 years old, a single mother of 6 with a Ph.D in theoretical astrophysics and the CEO of a multi-billion dollar embedded Linux company specializing in deep-sea robotics who spends her spare time running an animal shelter in Bora Bora and being a Victoria's Secret model and I think Trudeau Must Go," here's Captain "Pure Blood Sperm" Alberta, bragging about his participation in Ottawa's trucker occupation:
Here's a thought, Cap'n Sperm ... come on back to Ottawa for a visit. Really, pop on out here, and drop into any of the bars on Elgin Street or in the Byward Market that were hammered financially by your convoy, and belly up to the bar and announce to all how you were here in February, doing your part to support all those truckers and Nazis and white nationalists to the extent of actually chauffeuring fuel to them every day, but make sure you mention that it was just because you wanted to support everyone else's "freedom."
Let us know how that turns out. And where to send your remains.

"Let's be absolutely clear -- is it your honest and sincere belief that Dale Smith was calling for you to be killed?"
"Well, Vassy, I think everyone here would agree with me that it's shocking that a mainstream reporter and a member of the PPG would make such an appalling statement and ...""I'm sorry, you're not answering the question. I'm not asking how childishly hysterical you can get; I'm asking you whether you actually believe that Mr. Smith was calling for you to be killed. Are you saying you honestly believe that he was calling for your violent death? Yes or no."

As soon as I saw journalist Dale Smith's tweet about the indescribable lameness of a CPC MP's performance in QP, and Smith's quip of, if a horse was that lame, they'd shoot it, my absolutely first reaction was that it was only a matter of time before the entire Canadian Rage-o-Sphere exploded in, well, Patrick Ross-level bad faith and rage, shrieking something like:
"SHOCKING!!! Woke, intolerant Liberal shill publicly calls for savage, brutal murder of Conservative politician!!!"
Sadly, I got distracted before I could post that, which is a shame since, well:
P.S. That last tweet was from the new leader of the CPC, who publicly supported the white nationalist "Freedom Convoy" that descended on Ottawa for three weeks and really did call for the murder of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. But, hey, let's not quibble over consistency.
P.P.S. If we want to argue about shooting-level lameness, we can start with House of Commons Speaker Anthony Rota. Fight me on that.

Just watched Chrystia Freeland tearing CPC leader Crypto McBitcoin a new one here, and it's appalling that she has to shout to be heard over the CPC hecklers across the floor, so I will make the same suggestion I made some time back.
When responding to the trained (or mostly untrained and un-housebroken) barking seal white nationalist asshats in the CPC, do not raise your voice. Even amid the din, answer in a totally conversational style, and if no one can hear it, well, too fucking bad. And keep doing this -- speaking normally even though you're being drowned out.
What is Skippy going to do? His only recourse is to bitch and whine that he didn't hear the answer, at which point, one responds that he could if his fellow CPCers weren't such disrespectful assholes.
Give it a try. See what happens.
