Your Free D Daily

A couple of quick notes:

1) Connie Wilkins and Mark Fourier, co-owners of Free Dominion, get married tomorrow. Good luck, and I hope the weather holds.

2) Bill Whatcott has taken a break from posting to Free D. He's got "a lot of work" on his hands and is, after all, running for mayor of Edmonton and so on and so forth.

Or somebody told him to shaddup. An informal ban, as it were. Free D doesn't sound half as loopy with him gone from the scene.

Can't wait for the wedding photos. I hope someone told her about upper lip waxing.

This isn't a bulldike union. Which I guess is why you feel it's OK to say something so pathetic.

I'll bet your something to see...

FD "family friendly" strikes again.

I'm going to attend the Fournier/Wilkins wedding and shout out how happy I am that penises are finally going to be lodged in vaginas, where they belong. And if the children at the wedding don't like that, well can take it up with the HRC.

That penis has been lodged in that vagina for a long time. They've been shacked up for a couple of years.

Not that there's anything wrong with that - unless the shackees are a pair of bigoted creeps who've spent that time fighting equal marriage because it's immoral.

As for the weather forecast, I'm expecting a plague of locusts.

They've posted the letter from CHRC aksing them to explain the purpose of the website, etc. But I would like to see all the comments that were part of the complaint. Some comments quoted from the complaint had been made by FD posters other than Whatcott, on the thread about the anti-Muslim pamphlet. I'm wondering if those people have all stopped posting, too.

In other news, Entropy Squared now speculates that since the complainant is a biologist, she may really be after them for their AGW denialism. As we all know, FD is a mighty battalion in the war against AGW alarmism, with impressive connections such as the doughty warrior Tom Harris, who drops in from time to deposit a link to his latest late-night radio interview or denialist screed written with Tim Ball. He rarely hangs around for conversation, though, and I wouldn't expect him to show up at the big free speech rally, unless he can claim it as a business expense.

Huh? Are you implying that the discussion of penile-vaginal intercourse was invented in the 90's?

Dumbo...look up the Obscene Verses in Old English (ca. 1000 CE). The saucy talk has been around for a long time.

Don't know. I'm not invited to the wedding that naive FDers paid for with their donations to the only message board that costs $8000 a year to run. (Funny how nohippos and enmasse cost their owners almost nothing to run)

The members give their money freely, as they are doing to defend Connie and Mark in their up and coming Kafkaesque "Trial". Everyone knows where the money goes. I am sure if you contact Connie she will supply you with an accounting. That would require an effort by you though, so I won’t hold my breath.


I know that some people do not understand the term “Kafkaesque”

From Wiki:

"Kafkaesque" is an auctorial descriptive which is used to describe concepts, situations, and ideas which are reminiscent of the literary work of Prague writer Franz Kafka, particularly his novel The Trial and his novella The Metamorphosis.

The term, which is quite fluid in definition, has also been described as "marked by a senseless, disorienting, often menacing complexity: Kafkaesque bureaucracies" and "marked by surreal distortion and often a sense of impending danger: Kafkaesque fantasies of the impassive interrogation, the false trial, the confiscated passport . . . haunt his innocence" — The New Yorker.

>> It can also describe an intentional distortion of reality by powerful but anonymous bureaucrats. "Lack of evidence is treated as a pesky inconvenience, to be circumvented by such Kafkaesque means as depositing unproven allegations into sealed files ..." <<

Another definition would be an existentialist state of ever-elusive freedom while existing under unmitigatable control.

The adjective refers to anything suggestive of Kafka, especially his nightmarish type of narration, in which characters lack a clear course of action, the ability to see beyond immediate events, and the possibility of escape. The term's meaning has transcended the literary realm to apply to real-life occurrences and situations that are incomprehensibly complex, bizarre, or illogical.

If Connie is so greedy and slimy she could push for more money. The truth is that this year she cancelled one of their fundraisers because they had enough money. I believe she makes money from ads these days so she doesn’t need to ask her members for money. How does that figure? Why on Earth does this even matter to you? Maybe this is a case of envy breeding contempt. And when it comes to hate filled, contemptuous behavior, motivated by anger and rage, your only equal is Roy Wilson.

As for the other websites you have mentioned, I have not heard of them. I would guess that their bandwidth costs reflects their popularity. Are you aware of what it takes to manage the traffic FD enjoys and to store over a million posts? I do. It ain’t cheap.

Yes I admit it. I am an angry, stupid, hate filled, brain dead loser who is so-o-o frustrated! I am also a stinky poop head and I have cooties. I don't deserve to live. Is that OK? Please?


As for nineties comment. I am referring to the political stratagems that were created during the 92 Clinton campaign, developed by James Carville and George Stephanopoulos. You know, just call people names, accuse them of being in league with Hitler, or angry white males, being a fascist, a hatemonger, a homophobe, a sexist, etc, ad naseum. In short, destroy anyone with lies and paint yourself as the wise and caring angel who just wants to sing songs, help children and the elderly and bring nicey niceness to the world. Try reading "All Too Human" by George Stephanopoulos. Or watch the movie "War Room". That campaign set the tone for political discussion for the next decade. I know George Stephanopoulos would agree with me. Truly a disgusting and dispicable time in American politics that still poisons the air today.

But it's 2007 now and this approach is as antiquated as McCarthyism. But what does a hapless, knuckle-dragging imbecile like me know? I mean, I have done the reading, the studying, the legwork and I can back up each word I put forward – crazy eh! Rubber room time!

I think I have taken too much of your time and I know there are other very, VERY important issues to be debated on this blog, (whose owner fished for traffic on FD, which is how I got here) – like “Politics, Boobies, And Hair”. Of course my vapid stupidity does not allow me understand why trivializing human beings to the point that there hair style or “boobies” decides their fate, and the fate of millions of people at home and around the world – but again, stupid stupid me. And of course the gang rape mob mentality that is directed at Connie always elevates you geniuses to cerebrial stratispheres beyond my 14 point I.Q. You gifted intellectuals sure are something. (something all right...)

Red Tory said...

Wow. Being scolded with wet noodle insults by an Anonymous loser from FD... That’s just gotta hurt.

Reality Bites said...

But Connie IS a sexist, homphobic bigot. It's on the record, in her own words. No one's making anything up - just calling a spade a spade.

Sure, people could agree not to call her one, but it wouldn't change the fact that she IS one.

We could PRETEND she's not an adulteress too, who hasn't been shacked up in an immoral fornicating relationship the last couple of years, but since she's devoted her life to judging others for what she thinks are their moral shortcomings (like staying married to the same person for life), she really can't complain about being judged in return as the sexually immoral slug she is.

In the perfect "Christian" world Whatcott wants to build, her adulterous ass would be rotting in jail along with mine.

Want a laugh folks? Word is that the reason Connie was SO upset about FD competitor nohippos.com was not that the name was a slam at FD's hypocracy, but that she was worried it was a reference to her hips.

You see, Connie's something of an object of ridicule even among FDers.

I read the post by reality bites. Reading it was like sucking on a malignant tumor. It made me feel horribly nauseous. And no, I am not “just saying that”. I mean it.

Here are my thoughts about Connie on her wedding day:

I came to know Connie Wilkins back in 2001. The Canadian political scene was very different then. The Conservative Party was in the process of reforming in the face of the infamous Adscam scandal that would lead Prime Minister Paul Martin to his downfall and see the eventual rise of Stephen Harper.

This Conservative Party represented something new and the possibilities seemed to be very good. There appeared to be a chance to sort out differences between Eastern and Western Conservatives so that something could be put forward to challenge the status quo. Every moment of that experience was captured on Free Dominion. A simple search through their more than 1 million posts will bare that out.

I have watched Connie mature dramatically though all of it. In fact, her entire family has often been through hell as a result. Fortunately she had the strength and fortitude to withstand withering attacks that most of us will never know, or could endure. She inspired people around her in ways I have not experienced in the Canadian political arena. I knew from the get go she was my kinda fighter – you’d think she was Irish the way she her eyes sparkle and say “go ahead, I dare you”.

This may seem an odd analogy here but I am going to go with it. For some reason I have become hooked on one of the Star Trek series, “Enterprise”. I am not sure why since I don’t care much for the rest of those shows, just this one. The basic premise is that this is the very first manned starship to explore the universe. In the beginning the somewhat boyish and eager Captain sets out full of optimism and hope. Over time the harsh realities of the ‘way things are’ becomes clear. He comes to learn that sometimes peace is achieved through strength, that what are core values deeply held and cherished must be reevaluated. That earning trust and loyalty means much more than just words. Hard lessons that only explorers and adventures come to understand. Hard lessons that make a true leader.

I was recently listening to Connie on Michael Coren’s radio show. She was sensible, modestly confident and ready for anything. It seems Nietzsche was right, what does not kill only serves to make you stronger. If Nietzsche were alive today her resilience, courage and determination would have likely impressed him. What I think he would be especially impressed by is that she still has her delightful sense of humor and a most charming laugh. Many attempted to extinguish her flame but failed. What isn’t there to respect?

A lovely Canadian gal who is raising 4 teenagers, going to school to study internet technologies, running Free Dominion AND she is getting married today to her love Mark Fournier. So what did you do this week?

Thanks Connie for the inspiration. This country needs 1,000’s more like you.

My sincerest and most heartfelt best wishes for you, Mark and the kids. You are a great Canadian family and I hope your future is prosperous, healthy and filled with joy.

Connie Wilkins is a self serving shrew. It is either her way or the highway.

Several lawyers advising them? Who are they and why aren't they jumping up to defend them against Ms. Gentes complaint?

I will give her credit for trying to raise 4 kids on her own but the buck stops there.

Free speech is just that. There are many moderates who have been booted out of FD for trivial reasons. Entire threads have been deleted because a poster took offense when a moderator called a Muslim a raghead. The person gets deleted and eventually, the thread disappears too.

Free speech only applies if Connie etal agree with the message. Whatcott is still there spewing his garbage. Wilson is still there reloading. McKenzie the ex-moderator is still there pretending that he matters.

If one wishes to defend free speech, well, there should be no boot button and threads should stay just as they are.

OK, I'll nibble. Why is it cowardice to defend a friend?

I mean, it's not like I set up a blog whose sole purpose is to encourage a bunch of my pals to gang up on someone's mom. Real courage that!

Or is that I don't have a nifty name like you?

Or perhaps it is that I do resort to ridiculing someone's appearance, even though she is quite attractive and has lovely figure. Maybe you are into the anemic, crack head types but some of us like healthy women.

I guess it's OK to be a 50 year old guy with flaps of gray flesh hanging out of assless chaps in broad daylight. But a typical Canadian women with a typical Canadian body type just going about her business - now that's just awful! Off with her head! (Of course Judy Rebick, fats gays and lesbians, Muslim women and any other privileged victim classes are excluded - just white Christian mothers).

By the way, what kind of shape are you in? Or is that a secret, like your identity? Mr. Kettle.

Don't read so much into this. I'm just being insulting because I despise FD (more for its blatant dishonesty than the hate, which is bad enough). I have that right and I don't have to engage in lengthy dissertations (I've done that already to my own satisfaction) to explain why if I don't feel like it. If you don't like that, well that's just too bad.

OK..?

That can be said about any woman someone chooses to dislike.

Several lawyers advising them? Who are they and why aren't they jumping up to defend them against Ms. Gentes complaint?

They are. There are several threads. They do it very publicly. For example, lawyer “Little Harbour” is shouting from the rooftops. Where is the accuser Ms. Gentes in all of this? (insert sound of crickets here) Maybe she is shouting fire someone else? I might ask, (just a suggestion) where are CPC members on this? Connie and FD were there for them when they needed to win an election. Oh I forgot, they plunged a huge knife in her back when she tried to run herself. Go ahead, I dare anyone, ask a Conservative MP if they will admit knowing her name. They will lie about it. Connie is a true rebel. She is hated by both sides. God I love that!

I will give her credit for trying to raise 4 kids on her own but the buck stops there.

They are good kids too. And they should not be targeted by anyone, as I saw in an earlier post. Agreed?

Free speech is just that. There are many moderates who have been booted out of FD for trivial reasons. Entire threads have been deleted because a poster took offense when a moderator called a Muslim a raghead. The person gets deleted and eventually, the thread disappears too.

I have spoken out many times on this and I agree with you 100%. It makes me sick and I have never hesitated to say so.

Free speech only applies if Connie etal agree with the message. Whatcott is still there spewing his garbage. Wilson is still there reloading. McKenzie the ex-moderator is still there pretending that he matters.

Whatcott is a fool and obviously he is taking FD down. His behavior yesterday is the proof of that. A real limelight whore!

I truly detest Roy Wilson. Roy Wilson was responsible for shutting down a board at CBC with some greasy slimy lawyer from New York, a JBG. I think he name is James Gluckman. His other interests include stalking women. He still loves to boast about his hideous behavior. Two filthy scumbags if ever there was some. Unfortunately they hide behind the anti-Semitism thing because they claim to be Jewish. Next thing you know the tired old “you’re a Nazi” accusation is flying threw the air. If anyone in all of this is a coward, it’s Roy Wilson and his master JBG. So I believe we can agree on those two and I am happy to have this chance to say so.

McKenzie a good guy. You have him all wrong. I have rarely encountered someone so knowledgeable in Canadian history and he explains difficult issues well. He is a natural teacher. You are just wrong about him.

Carmen

Nice chatting with you Carmen.

The American Democratic Party has an enormous influence on Canadian politics. Why do you think Howard Dean was the keynote speaker at the last Liberal convention? Why is Clinton treated like a God when he comes here? Al Gore too? When a Republican, with the exception of Arnold, comes to Toronto they treated like Darth Vader and treated accordingly, with the insults I mentioned earlier. That is a reality in our country. It is in fact very relevant to you even if you don’t pay any attention. I have watched these trends for decades but I have found that few Canadians do, so you are in the majority in that regard.

Ti-Guy said...

What evidence do you have to back up that assertion, other than your references to political celebrities showing up in Canada from time to time and your own personal perceptions of how they are treated by Canadians? I'm a long-standing progressive voter and I know the Democratic Party is useful in terms of American-Canadian dialogue among progressives, but the party itself and what it does while its in power usually has nothing useful to contribute to progressive politics in Canada, for the simple fact that what we've moved beyond some of the core issues American progressives are still hoping the Democratic Party will actually take action on one of these days.

When a Republican, with the exception of Arnold, comes to Toronto they treated like Darth Vader and treated accordingly, with the insults I mentioned earlier.

What other Republicans are you referring to? Bush? Cheney?

Reality Bites said...

Bill Whatcott has been banned from FornicatingDuo...

Not for his hate speech (heaven forbid), but for taking advantage of Connie and Mark's absence during their "wedding" to post criticizing Michael Coren.

This is the last straw as far as Whatcott is concerned, he's outta here.

We kept Bill Whatcott as a member as long as we did because there were a number of principles involved, but we believe he took advantage.

Lesson learned.


The principle involved of course, is that reading Bill's lurid descriptions of gay sex is likely the only way ol' Mark can get a woodie. But now that he's "married" his meal ticket and she's stuck supporting him for life, guess he doesn't have to worry about that anymore.

The Canadian Human Rights Commission is out of control. Plain and Simple.

I am a current victim of Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, and have been under going a three year legal battle with them, due to a message board I had on my website (www.freedomsite.org) back in 2003. Not a single word I have written is at issue, but rather messages others posted (that I did not even know about) As part of my vigorous defence, I have challenged the Constitutionality of Section 13 (Internet gag law) and Section 54 (fines) of the Canadian Human Rights Act.

Here is a few statistics from my case that tells the whole story about the CHRC:

Active and Past cases: 43
Cases the tribunal ruled on: 29

• 0% of respondents have ever won a section 13 case before the tribunal.
• 100% of cases have Whites as respondents
• 98% of cases have poor or working class respondents
• 90.7% of respondents are not represented by lawyers
• So far, $80,500 has been awarded in fines and special compensation since May 9, 2003.
• 72.4% of complaints specifically identify "jews" as victims.
• 48.8% of all cases (Past and active) are by Richard Warman



So far the case against me has run for 25 hearing days, and Marc Lemire’s team has called 3 expert witnesses, 2 witnesses and subpoenaed 3 witnesses from the Canadian Human Rights Commission.


The Constitutional motion my lawyers have filed and my entire case have been posted on my website.

http://www.freedomsite.org/legal

Constitutional Motion:
http://www.freedomsite.org/legal/dec13-05_writeup-on-case.html



Does anyone know of a way to disprove these numbers? If they are true then it's bye bye freedom. I guarantee you that Roy Wilson and his screaming monkey friends will be all over Rabble. That will be followed by no end of revenge claims. Obviously, it's easy to do and easy to win.

This is all very sad, very, very sad.

Why do they need to be disproved? One would assume they reflect documented evidence/reliable data. Do they?

Or were they pulled, with great difficultly, out of some Righty's tight arse?
