If we don't crush WK's rights, we'll lose our freedoms. There'll be Chinese people in ovens and neo-liberal bands of skinheaded leftards wreaking havoc across the land. There'll be small children writing Liberal signs at knee height in bathrooms. Oh, the Horror!!Yes it's hypocrisy, or an honest confession of what Warren needs the state to control, and there are probably many reasons Michael Ignatieff might think twice about relying on Kinsella's political instincts, or those of Denis "Hezbollah" Coderre for that matter. But then Ignatieff is what he is, and in my best guess he's not the wise scholarly gentleman some would like to think but an opportunist with a rough touch.
It's time for this insidious free speech to be crushed so that our rights are protected and our delicate sensitivities are not harmed! After all, someone's FEELINGS may be hurt!!!! What could be worse than that??
But, anyway, wearing a Che cap? that mass-murdering thug who lined suspected counter-revolutionaries up against the wall and shot them without even a kangaroo court? Where are our scandal priorities?
Meanwhile, some provocateur from an Ottawa Bell account is googling 'Warren Kinsella Racism' and finding months-old posts like ours to leave the press release on Kinsella's cat meat comments from the outraged Chinese Canadian Conservative Association.
Pointing out K's "hypocrisy" is one thing, though it looks like some odd case of mental-emotional confusion to me (I think he has a secret love for Kate at Small Dead Animals), but when conservatives start playing the "gotcha, racist" game, scoring points by being offended, inevitably thus tending to want to be offended, what hope is there for our country? Have we not given in to a game where we must all be victims pleasding to higher authority for points, instead of putting up with the idiocies of our fellow citizens and getting on with ruling ourselves, a top-down game where everything can be reduced to some arbitrarily-wielded code of political correctness? (If you're Chinese, joke about Cantonese peasant food all you like...) We might as well double down on Section 13 and formalize things a little if we can. Maybe, in some strangely dark and brooding way, that's the point of this bizarre Kinsella performance?(HT: Catfur)
