Woke Book Burning In Canada

     Book burning used to be considered a sign of fascism and oppression, but recently it has become a necessary virtue signal for “anti-racistwokeness. So of course Canada has to join in.

“The ‘flame purification’ ceremony, first reported by Radio Canada, was held in 2019 by the Conseil scolaire catholique Providence, which oversees elementary and secondary schools in southwestern Ontario. Some 30 books, the national broadcaster reported, were burned for ‘educational purposes’ and then the ashes were used as fertilizer to plant a tree.

“‘We bury the ashes of racism, discrimination and stereotypes in the hope that we will grow up in an inclusive country where all can live in prosperity and security,’ says a video prepared for students about the book burning, Radio Canada reported.

“In total, more than 4,700 books were removed from library shelves at 30 schools across the school board, and they have since been destroyed or are in the process of being recycled, Radio Canada reported.”

Meanwhile… in Canada.

     Woke witches have used their “magic” to fight many unwoke enemies, including non-anti-racists in academia, Brett Kavanaugh, the Confederacy, and even White urban hipsters. But now it seems that they’ve waged war against someone way out of their league: Allah.

The Covid Penal Colony Down Under

     Australia was first settled by the British to serve as a penal colony. Now it looks like Australia is embracing its heritage.   Not happy enough with proposing to abolish online anonymity in this panopticon of a prison, Australia is testing a new quarantine app.

“‘The government of South Australia, one of the country’s six states, developed and is now testing an app as Orwellian as any in the free world to enforce its quarantine rules.

“‘People in South Australia will be forced to download an app that combines facial recognition and geolocation. The state will text them at random times, and thereafter they will have 15 minutes to take a picture of their face in the location where they are supposed to be. Should they fail, the local police department will be sent to follow up in person. ‘We don’t tell them how often or when, on a random basis they have to reply within 15 minutes,’ Premier Steven Marshall explained. “I think every South Australian should feel pretty proud that we are the national pilot for the home-based quarantine app,”’ Friedersdorf added.”

     Ironically, South Australia was an Australian state that wasn’t founded as a penal colony, yet has a premier who says people should thank the government for forcing a quarantine app on them. And what happens when the government catches people not adhering to these draconian rules? Fine them, ration their alcohol, and even joke about gassing people do death… unless you are LGBTQ&c. apparently.

Twenty Years Ago Today – NEVER FORGET

     Twenty years ago today, America was attacked. Instead of focusing in on America leaving Afghanistan, let us focus in on why we went there to begin with.  Never forget the victims who died, and those who fought back.

Firing Line Friday: Abortion Laws: Pro and Con

     In the hopes of encouraging a more civil, and illuminating, discourse, here is another episode of William F. Buckley, Jr.’s “Firing Line”.

     Before Roe v. Wade, the question of abortion was up to the democratic process in each individual state. With the Supreme Court yet again considering whether abortion is a Federally protected Constitutional right, or if there is no such Constitutional right with regulation of abortion up to the states, let us look back at a pre-Roe debate between William F. Buckley, Jr., Roy Lucas, and John Thomas Noonan to see what the future of the abortion debate might yet bring again.

     Until next Friday.

Quick Takes — Stassi On Social Media: LAPD Collecting Social Media Data On Innocent Civilians; Australia Targets Comment Sections; United Kingdom Arrests Soccer Fans For Wrongspeak

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: Big Brother is watching… and noting your pronouns.

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

     Are you a completely innocent person who has committed no crime? To bad, because the Los Angeles police are going to collect your social media information.

“The Los Angeles police department (LAPD) has directed its officers to collect the social media information of every civilian they interview, including individuals who are not arrested or accused of a crime, according to records shared with the Guardian.

“Copies of the ‘field interview cards’ that police complete when they question civilians reveal that LAPD officers are instructed to record a civilian’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media accounts, alongside basic biographical information. An internal memo further shows that the police chief, Michel Moore, told employees that it was critical to collect the data for use in ‘investigations, arrests, and prosecutions’, and warned that supervisors would review cards to ensure they were complete.

“The documents, which were obtained by the not-for-profit organization the Brennan Center for Justice, have raised concerns about civil liberties and the potential for mass surveillance of civilians without justification.”

Casting +3 Cringe With Social Justice Buttons

     By now it’s practically a given than there is a huge overlap between Social Justice Warriors and self-proclaimed witches.

Now, this Role Playing Game (RPG) dedication to Social Justice can be proclaimed in buttons form.

     How woke is this? It’s been endorsed by Anita Sarkeesian.
