Meow everyone, Last Saturday, March 14, 2015 , about 2500 people converged upon Nathan Philips Square, ( Toronto City Hall ) to protest a new piece of legislation that makes it easier for the government to deal with the growing and ongoing threat of terrorism . The fact if that anyone who thinks that we here in Canada are immune to this is clearly living in either an alternate universe of has been pumped so full of the proverbial kool aid that all sense of reality has long escaped them.
Many will or SHOULD remember in recent history of the Front de libération du Québec (FLQ; English: Quebec Liberation Front) which militantly supported the Quebec sovereignty movement. It was active between 1963 and 1970, and was regarded as a terrorist organization for its violent methods of action. Some of their better known acts of terrorism was the kidnapping of British Ambassador Jame Cross , as well, the kidnapping and subsequent murder of Pierre Laporte .
More recently, in fact as of this writing, several terrorists are in n court awaiting a verdict in relation to a planned railway bombing they had planned to carry out. Not long ago, 18 terrorist were caught in Toronto who were planning to enact major acts of terrorism in and around Toronto and Canada. They are now, safely tucked away in a federal prison for a very long time. We have also own very own Omar Khadr , who was a taliban terrorist, and is now serving a sentence in Canada for killing a US serviceman , a medic who was unarmed, treating another person.
We had two very recent acts of terrorism in Canada, within the past few months, one where a terrorist killed a soldier on duty at the Canadian War Memorial and then made his way into our parliament building before he was shot and killed by the Sgt. At Arms of the Legislature building. The Sgt. At Arms saved several lives that day as this terrorist was in fact firing his weapon inside the parliament building .
No Canada is most certain not immune to these nut cases so we need laws, and empower those we entrust to enforce those laws to have the ability, unfettered, to protect this great country. For this reason, Bill C-51 was created . This new law while very broad on what is states , may not be perfect , no law is , however, we need to have a starting point to which we can draw from to either enact better laws, or, to amend existing laws .
However, it appears that while there was a plethora of professional protesters present , to voice their opposition to this new law, it appears that most who attended, actually had NO IDEA what they were event protesting. Here is a great example , with thanks and credit going to ” The Rebel ” for the video showing clearly that people have no idea what they are protesting :
For those who wish to actually read what this legislation is really about, it can be read here .
OK, so lets go back to the protest because it was filled with all the usual contradictions that exist when brainless idiots are allowed to congregate in one location with first proving that they have their anti psychosis meds. I am certain that had I taken the time to look around a little more, i would no doubt have spotted someone wearing either a tin foil suit , tin foil hat or one made of wire coat hangers. The stupid meter was working overtime on this day.
This event was covered in detail by Blogwrath , and Genuinewitty . Upon my arrival , I made my way on the main stage where the ” festivities : were going to take place . These ” festivities ” would be made up of a bunch of people from the usual professional protest crowd making the usual nauseating speeches riddled with misinformation, the usual yelling, screaming, equally nauseating chants , and of course, the obligatory march to some place to anger the citizens of Toronto who actually have real, meaningful lives. It did not take long for the professional protestor / organizers to show their true colors . They are predictable as they are stupid . Today, Occupy Toronto’s very own Kevin Konnyu thought he would try and make some sort of statement , not one, not twice, but three time. First he very deliberately and with some force, as if he wanted to try and send me some sort of ” message” tried to literally push me out of the way so he can can get the shot I already had. Once he discovered that that failed miserably , he scaled up his approach, summoning all of his two brain cells to work overtime , coming up from behind me and yanking my back back thinking that it would be enough to actually move me. Kevin, however, clearly showed that he has spent more time protesting than in the classroom because his 150 pounds of brainless void space was no match for my 250 pounds . Kevin if you have the cranial capacity to read this, here is todays lesson in physics ….. something of lessor mass ( thats you ) given equal conditions, cannot move someone of greater mass ( thats me ) . It was clear that this malcontent was trying to provoke a physical confrontation but he should have also know, that I am far too disciplined to fall into his weak trap. So, for those want to seen this twit and what he looks like, here he is :
The next incident of predictable twitery was enacted against my Friend Greg Renouf . Greg too arrived opun the main stage and was quickly approached by one of the organizers, who told him that he ( Greg ) has to leave the stage because Greg was hated by everyone there . So, first, a subtle threat against Greg. Then a bit later, one of the communists decided to throw a cup of coffee onto Gregs coat. OK, communists are predictably stupid to begin with so Greg laughed it off . However, the underlying point here is that these protesters claimed to be opposed to violence from the ” state ” yet at the first opportunity they have, they seek out way to enact violence. Well, never let it be said that brains and reasoning was a requirement to become a professional protester.
Soon after the official start time, the speeches were to come. There was a plethora of idiots ready to regale us with their sheer stupidity but this protest seemed to be more of ” who can out stupid each other ” . It was a tight race. In no specific order , there was Andrew Cash , Not sure exactly what he was blubbering about but one thing I do know for sure, he is a better singer than he is a politician. Andrew Cash was originally in a local punk rock band . Cash began his career in the Toronto punk band L’Étranger. In my opinion, he should have remained there . Andy, baby, if you do read this, here is a word of friendly advice … get back into the music biz because as a politician, you are a laughing stock …. albeit one with a great voice.
As the day wore so to did the intensity on the impending headache . No, I was coming down with a flu, I was about to be subjected to the shrill and total idiocy of Pam ” fake tan ” Palmater . Palmater is touted as being a lawyer and a Phd. . However, hearing her speak, you would think she may have a missed a few classes, particularly classes in the presentation of facts ( she had none to offer ). She may have a Phd. but I was not aware that one can get one for kool aid consumption. I can only hope that while she may be a professor at Ryerson University, for her students sake, i hope she absent to the point that a real professor is teaching these kids, because if it’s Palmater, these students are in serious trouble.
Other notable squeakers , errr, I mean speakers were the likes of Slippery Sid Ryan. We know that whenever he shows up, the intelligence level of the crowd could not possibly be more than at best , single digit IQ’s .
Another person who showed was leader of the green party, Elizabeth May . I wonder if she went green and walked here or, did she do like all the hypocrite professional protesters, and flew here . I can only imagine the green house gasses expelled to get her here . Once again, proof of the contradiction these people are.
Lastly , what protest would be complete without the sheer idiocy of Judy Rebbick . Yes, sadly, I was far too close to her and as a result, had to dispose of my clothing in a safe manner. Rebbick did her best to remind us of what she claims to have done ” back in her day ” . Hey, Auntie Judy, back in the day, we had respect for law, authority and our country. Those are the things she is against , but on this day, she thought that the added flavor of the month, race baiting would make for great protesting. :
I don’t know why I keep hoping she shows up. Must be my sense of duty to my country … I sacrifice myself by standing so close to her, so you don’t have to . Judy, you looked and sounded a bit stoned this day.
After about an hour of torture , we went marching. Off we went to the Toronto offices of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service ( CSIS ) . The communists, the anarchists, the protesters, they all came, knowing not what they were protesting, but hey, it was a nice walk. No protest these days would be complete without some twit wanting to blockade an intersection . I know if I was mayor, I would immediately cave in to the demands of these people so that they don’t blockade….. NOT. As well, no trendy protest would be legit unless a bunch of ” indian for a day ” people demanded to lead the protest, claiming that this was their land . Wow, I never met someone who owns an entire city before. I really don’t want to break to them the bad news, the news that the VIKINGS were here long before the indians, for they ( at least not this bunch ) are not yet ready for facts , not yet anyway .
So as another UNION organized event was closing , the assembled were still oblivious as to what they were protesting about. Yes, I said UNION organized event, because the OFL was calling the shots on this protest. This explains that low brow content , and answers people gave when asked direct questions.
I too was asked where I stood on this issue. While like everyone else there, I have not read the legislation so I cannot comment to its contents. However, I can comment of what is already in place, in place prior to this new law. I fully support the use of security certificates to hold suspected terrorists indefinitely, and without any trial. These certificates help unsure that terrorists are locked up and unable to communicate with each other , or, greatly restrict their movements if they are not locked up. I fully support secret trial of terrorists. If anyone has even seen the movie called TELEFON, its was premised around the idea that a terrorist cell can be activated by using simple communication tools and special code words that are brainwashed into a sleeper, only to be activated once the code word or words are spoken. This is not fiction, this is REAL. So, for that reason alone, secret trial are not known to the public, and greatly lessening the chances of sleeper agents being activated. Secret trial also ensure the safety of operative who may be still be deep under cover . I do NOT support civilian oversight into intelligence organizations because simply put, the general public has no idea as to what the fine lines these agencies need to work under and around. Let me be blunt . National security is not something that can be over seen buy just anyone . It needs to be overseen by people who are fully aware of exactly what is going on , why its going , and what the purpose of an operation is.
While this law may not be perfect, what law really is , I think that the time has come to have a powerful set of laws in place to deal with what ever we may face in the future. Is someone going to listen to my conversations on my blackberry ? Is someone going to read my email ? People, wake up , this is already taking place ….. with the correct steps in place to ensure its not abused. Programs such as Carnivore, later renamed DCS1000, was a system implemented by the Federal Bureau of Investigation that was designed to monitor email and electronic communications. It used a customizable packet sniffer that can monitor all of a target user’s Internet traffic. Carnivore was implemented in October 1997. By 2005 it had been replaced with improved commercial software such as NarusInsight.
ECHELON, originally a code-name, is now used in global media and in popular culture to describe a signals intelligence collection and analysis network operated on behalf of the five signatory nations to the UKUSA Security Agreement — Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Referred to by a number of other abbreviations, including AUSCANNZUKUS and Five Eyes, it has also been described as the only software system which controls the download and dissemination of the intercept of commercial satellite trunk communications. It was created in the early 1960s to monitor the military and diplomatic communications of the Soviet Union and its Eastern Bloc allies during the Cold War, and was formally established in the year of 1971.
We live a vastly different world today than even 15 years ago. 9-1-1 changed the game as well as the rules . We MUST do everything possible to minimize the terrorist activities and we must do everything possible to gain the upper hand against these terrorists , BEFORE they have a chance to strike . The doing for international terrorist we all know already, as well as to domestic one such as the so called ” environmental groups ” who’s sole agenda is to disrupt the Canadian Economy .
