They're going to try to cancel you anyway. They're going to find an excuse to make you a problem. You're going to be falsely accused for things. Might as well not hold back.

Instead of apologizing, why not ask Jas Jahal to defend the image of adult male fetishists interacting with a little girl? What does he see of of value there?

Cuckmaxxxxxxing. This is what they mean by getting blown away like a leaf on the wind.

Either put the maple tree on your flag like Lebanon has the cypress or find a flag that doesn't have a leaf on it.

Yet even sadder is the reality now found in places like Ireland because the bar to keep from getting cancelled keeps getting raised. Now you must convincingly demonstrate you truly ❤️like ❤️ these (wanna-be) pedophiles and be happy they want to surround your child with overt very creepy predatory sexual behavior that most adults don't even want to see. Why? Because acceptance, tolerance and "live and let live" is no longer enough. The reality: unless you dramaticaly show you really LIKE these folks (as in swear you'll be besties forever!!) you find yourself on a downward trajectory on the slippery slope to being accused of committing "a hate crime". Then, with breath taking speed, in addition to "cancelling you", assuring your economic livelihood is destroyed, and booing and harassing your children in school, once you stand accused of a HATE crime, you then face the very liikely possibility you will do prison time. Because, of course, "not liking" someone or something is much much worse than assault, rape, or murder. Gosh darn. You are hurting their feelings. Impressive! Every trick deployed during Mao's cultural revolution to shame and destroy is used and amplified. Any apology can and will be used against you. Forever.

Sounds like a typical CPC member to me. I’m sure PoiLIEvre will denounce him, too. The near/mid term future for Canada is very bleak. Things will only change via external actors—because Canada’s ruling establishment is merely mimetic.

After my cancellation a student sent an email to all the other students in one of my classes urging them all to withdraw. One of the points listed was "she has never apologized".

I thought this was kind of hilarious. Oh I have "never apologized" for my position, the one I have taken great pains to publicly articulate in the face of quite serious professional consequences? That one? That's the one you think I neglected to be "whoopsy doodle my bad!" about?

Happily almost no one dropped and quite a few students sent the email to me very irritated to have received it. They knew better than to publicly argue back (there are no protections in place for students) but they were privately quite annoyed.

Time to realize there are no conservatives it’s a clown show for sheep

Well American conservatives were also about this cucked before Trump came along.

Yes, there is certainly much more to this story and I'd imagine our Damon has something along the lines of "protest too much" that's gonna show up as a spring avalanche by a sudden awakening of "journalism."

But we all need to be able to state a simple truth. Sexually-disturbed people can be gay or straight--or rather deformations of normal gay or straight sexuality. Same-sex attraction is a perfectly normal subset of human sexuality. The Scrabble people are mostly showing off the new cool thing but they give a sort of camouflage in the ranks to the seriously, often dangerously not well.

It should further be easy to say that grownups making themselves alluring to children in any of a gazillion ways are very dangerous indeed. The Carnivale Pride propaganda onslaught that seeks to obliterate children's natural instincts to recoil from the abnormal is a sort of Manchurian Candidate programing.

Aren't there any normal boring Conservatives anymore? They'd be useful to find, really.

No, it's not.

Giney! There you are!

I think the truth is an absolute defense. Fuck em if they can't grasp that.

A real man would have stood by his tweets. After all there was only truth in them. The spineless twit deserves what he gets.

"If you’re going to step down, do so with conviction, not an apology. It’s crazy that Scrace crumbled, apologized, grovelled, and then resigned at the first sign of pressure. Terrible political instincts."

,,,and not at all boomer-esque! this is what happens though when first you open the door to “LGBTQUA+LMNOPQRSTUV.” give them an inch...

Sigh... This story pains me so much. I was foolish enough to be excited about the BC Conservatives gaining ground. I should have realised they were just as flimsy as everyone else when they posted a bunch of sycophantic Poilievre pictures and adopted his slogans. I guess politics in Canada will continue sucking for the foreseeable future.

In BC, unfortunately, the BC United and Conservatives are fighting each other instead of David Eby and the NDP. Kevin Falcon Calls BC Conservative Candidates a 'Clown Car' 🚗🤡 | BC Politics

June is Pride Month, which often means LGBT-related events and discussions at schools across Canada. Some school walk-outs are planned for the beginning of the month, to coincide with Pride flag-raising ceremonies. https://www.theepochtimes.com/world/ahead-of-pride-month-school-walk-outs-planned-parents-discuss-lgbt-teaching-in-schools-5657272?utm_source=left-sharing-widget&utm_medium=copyLink

I’m guessing he was told to resign. The old tweets were worded rather poorly, not very diplomatically. Would be politcos should delete any such tweets.

Yes I highly suspect the party leaned on him to drop out---or gave him the chance to drop out before they removed his candidacy. In terms of the content, it could just as well be said they were phrased quite judicially. They certainly weren't rants or keyboard warrior stuff. He composed them.
