Mediocrity is the Mantra or Fuck You, Tom Freda

Canadians are mediocre people with mediocre ambitions who put mediocre efforts into mediocre causes. Take, for example, Tom Freda’s supposed fight against merely an oath to the Queen … for newcomers to Canada.

Today, the Ontario Superior Court ruled that forcing immigrants to Canada to swear an oath to the Queen is constitutional, even if it violated their free speech rights.

Nevermind, you know, actually severing ties with Britain and establishing a republican form of government that works. Nevermind pummelling royalists at every corner of every street and every building. Nevermind radicalizing Canadians against such an evil institution. Nevermind trying to propagate why monarchy is evil and should be destroyed as swiftly as possible. Nevermind trying to explain why a republic (specifically of a constitutional democratic secular form) is the greatest form of government human beings has ever conceived. And as lame as it is, nevermind changing the oath for ALL Canadians who enter into any public office. No. Tom Freda and Roach decided to dedicate years and money to engage in a selfish, mediocre endeavour designed solely to appease only new Canadians who don’t like the monarchy.

I’m sorry, but I’m a natural-born citizen of this country who himself is non-white, who grew up in two provinces, and I absolutely hate the monarchy, because it is an absolutely evil institution that must be destroyed. Yet my ambitions are far higher than Freda’s, or his CCR organization. The ambitions of them are so utterly weak that it would’ve been defeated by a fly between the two in a boxing match. So much time and money wasted on a useless endeavour that was doomed to fail to begin with. We should be better than this. Your ambitions should be far higher, and should be inclusive of all Canadians. But it wasn’t. Instead, the CCR, which has an official position of what kind of republic Canada they want, has colluded with royalists, and has a history of outing or purging “radicals”, decided to pretend to represent only republicans from other countries who come here. Not challenge the status quo. Not try to challenge Canadian’s who fear the concept of an executive that has real power and is able to counter the abuses of the legislature and the judiciary, and vice versa. Not to wage total war against the monarchy and the monarchists, to try and drive some away and others to convert to republicanism. Not to continuously insult and piss off the monarchy and monarchists, both of whom are evil and stupid and irrational.

We’ve got to do better than this, people! Enough! Our country cannot remain as a weak, divided, poor country that stands on fake pride and a dead, diseased system that has been nothing but problems. The idea that a constitutional monarchy is best is wrong. We don’t control nor own the head of state. We’re not a colony and we shouldn’t be colony. Instead, we the Canadians must, as quickly as possible, sever all political ties to Great Britain and the British crown, absolve ourselves of our allegiances to the Crown, and establish for a time a provisional constituent assembly composed of the brightest minds of the country that are not affiliated with any political party to draft a new constitution that would establish Canada as a democratic secular republic with the intent of government being to act in the name and interests of the people, to protect their rights and to provide for their security and welfare. We can’t rely on Parliament to do that. The elected elites in this country now, federally and provincially, in every political party, are not interested in representing the people, in exerting their will and catering to their interests, but in self-preservation. They would also want to keep a system of government where the executive doesn’t wield any power that would counter an abusive legislature. Nor should we use parliament as a legislature in our future republic, because it is unstable, undemocratic and unreliable in a republican system.

In the last fifteen years, we’ve witnessed a great example of the errors of having both a presidential system, where the president is both head of state and of government, and a parliamentary system, where the president is neither, in one of the most powerful and culturally significant nations on earth since Rome: the United States. The former was helmed by the manifestly incompetent George Bush, who ravaged the Bill of Rights, ruined the economy, committed various war crimes, and other heinous acts that have, since 9-11, utterly ruined the country and the world, acting like an elected monarchy. The latter is helmed by the manifestly weak and incompetent Obama, who lied his way into office, only to continue the actions of his predecessor, on top of constantly capitulating to the right-wing who hate him because he’s black, and allowed the restoration of neo-Jim Crow Laws in the states and of the replacement of a republican form of government with a puppet show run by the corporations at the expense of the worker. Obama has, to quote the documentary Class War by Class War Films, “singlehandedly destroyed belief in our political system than any previous combination of the hustlers and phoneys who were his immediate predecessors.” He acts like a rubber-stamping puppet, with the occasional veto but on minor issues. These are the dangers of having a presidential system of republic or a parliamentary system of republic.

For Canada, it should be something balanced. A congressional legislature and a divided executive of moderate power. Strong enough to be able to counter the abuses of the legislature and to act quickly, efficiently and effectively in times of emergency, but weak enough to ensure the legislature is able to counter its abuses.

There will be, without doubt, times when we’ve elected the wrong guy, who is either an aspiring monarch or an unprincipled non-entity. The point of a democracy, and of term limits, is not only to be able to choose our governments but also to change them, so that in the face of blunders, errors or catastrophes by one face, the ability of people to elect a new face gives us the opportunity, the chance to do things better, to change things, to undo and reverse the damage done by their predecessor, to change our leaders for the better. Even after Obama, who is serving his second and final term, there is that opportunity.

But for the Americans, not for us. We, the Canadians, are forced to accept whoever assumes the throne, without our consent, while we indirectly elect our prime minister by giving a political party a majority in the legislature. There are no term limits, even for party leaders. Elections are called whenever Parliament feels like it, and some MPs have unfair influence in the executive branch by becoming Premier or Prime Minister.

Yet the royalists, forever in their drive to destroy the right of the people to govern themselves, will always use the myth of a demagogue with absolute power (completely ignoring the point of democracy … and of a legislature … and a constitution) and the myth of Hitler getting elected (when he in fact wasn’t elected President of Germany but appointed Chancellor … which happens to be … a Prime Minister) to dismiss and discredit democracy and the concept of a republican form of government. There do exists countries that are only republics in name only. Pol Pot wasn’t head of state … but Prime Minister.

Hmmmmmm … Mussolini was Prime Minister. Hitler was Prime Minister. Pol Pot was Prime Minister. Is it just me … or is there a pattern here?

Saskatoon: Earth’s Anus

In recent news, an ugliness has once more resurfaced in the so-called Paris of the Prairies. Joni Mitchell rightfully called out Saskatoon for what it is: extremely bigoted, a place from the deep south. And she’s absolutely right. If Windsor is “earth’s rectum,” then Saskatoon is earth’s anus.

I and a friend of mine used to live there. He and I didn’t know each other back then, but moved to greener pastures around the same time. His name, of course, is Mik. Mik was, in Saskatoon, a struggling filmmaker who had few to no friends and many enemies that preyed upon him due to his non-white ethnic makeup. He was, of course, inspired to work on an epic first film that, to this day, has remained unfinished. It was about bullying, and it was set in Saskatoon. Mik wanted to use local talent, local workers, and local resources, albeit a few from outside the City, to make it. The problem was he was also alone and had few friends and many enemies.

Five years ago, he was subjected to wrongful accusations, wrongful arrests, and wrongful convictions, with his accusers slandering Mik’s “mental illness” and “behavioural problems” in order to discredit him, and the incompetent police, the psychiatric doctors, and the useless, treacherous lawyers (one of whom was manifestly mentally ill) and his own treacherous, controlling granny who has been abusing him psychologically since birth. Two of the accusers were two former friends of his. One of the accusers he was trying to reach peaceful terms with. But because people didn’t think, didn’t care, didn’t read evidence, didn’t ask him any goddamn questions and essentially didn’t do their jobs, he was fucked. Even after the unjust thirty-day time limit to file an appeal which was delayed because of meddling by his granny who refused to do simple tasks while Mik was reeling from psychological deterioration in spite of leaving prison, which made the aftermath of his psychological collapse even worse. Now he’s considering suicide after five years of attempting to file an appeal, and several more months wasted trying to sue the vermin that screwed him. The ever manipulative, fraudulent control freak and sufferer of biased assimilation (the tendency to accept information that confirms one’s prior belief) Peter Garden was among the scum that screwed Mik in the ass by selling him out  to the cops over a flier that was calling for an investigation into the abusive behaviour of a specific police officer, just because one of the people that worked with him found it insulting. In other words, Peter Garden attempted to lay false accusations against an innocent person because he doesn’t like it when the local police forces are insulted, despite being the owner of a book store that caters to the Left and is falsely claiming to fight for change.

Even before this, Mik was royally screwed in every way. His friends were lukewarm at best. The discrimination is very, very subtle, wrapped up on purple oratory. Even the hippies and the goths are like that, with a very deep south, very small town mentality, with everyone knowing each other. Joni Mitchell was spot-on.

Pat Martin is … Someone’s Hero

UPDATE: It wasn’t for long until I found out that Pat was merely proposing a change in the Oath to the monarchy, and commented about the Old Whore’s “service.” You know, the one that she inherited, by blood, without consent of Canadians, and that we’re forced to live under it over a variety of dubious excuses that pander to history, xenophobia, backward traditional values, and other garbage.

This is what happens when you only read the headlines. *facepalm*

EARLIER: Pat Martin, the MP from Winnipeg, today called for the severing of ties to the British Monarchy.
This man is awesome. He’s been vitriolic against the Cons and other MPs for years.
For me, though, the only problem is that he’s trying to use the system against itself, which doesn’t always work. In fact, parliament, despite its uselessness, does not care about popular consent. In order to establish a new system, you must first sweep the old system aside. New Constitution, new form of legislature, and an effective, elected head of state that can counter an abusive legislature, apart from elections. But it’s a start.

Keep at it, Pat!

Spanish Republicans Demand End To Their Monarchy

Well, this is a surprise!

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/europe/2013/04/2013414182728336313.html

Solidarity from Canada! Long live the Spanish Republic! Long live the future Third Spanish Republic!
Solidarité du Canada! Vive la République espagnole! Vive la future troisième République espagnole!
¡Solidaridad de Canadá! ¡Viva la República Española! ¡Viva la Tercera República Española futura!

Best quote ever, because it’s technically true: “This monarchy was imposed on us by the dictatorship, therefore we consider it to be illegal,” 45-year-old teacher Maria Ayuso said.

Best quote ever, because it’s so sickeningly typcial: Juan Carlos apologised, saying as he left the hospital: “I am very sorry. I made a mistake. It won’t happen again.”

I mean, if any politician said that . . . no one would believe him and he’d either be thrown out of office or lose the next election, and replaced by someone better. If a monarch did this . . . we’re be forced to accept his apology, forced to keep him in power til he dies, and rationalize his sins even after death. And this is the benefit of a republic, of an elected head of state. To represent the people, the head of state must be elected. If the politician is bad, the people would throw him out and replace him with someone better. Term limits significantly improves it, because life-terms are a symptom of monarchs/dictators.

or The Queen Refuses to Hold an Inquiry into Electoral Fraud; Elizabeth May and Royalists Proven Wrong AGAIN

http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/04/05/queen-elizabeth-elizabeth-may_n_3020303.html?utm_hp_ref=canada

“The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of great moral crisis maintain their neutrality” ~Dante

Once more, for the 1175th time, the constitutional monarchy has proven itself why it is so wrong on so many levels. Months after Elizabeth May, the US-born leader of the Green Party, wrote a letter calling upon Old Liz to launch a royal inquiry into accusations of election fraud (or as the lamestream media would call it, the “robocall scandal”) against the Conservative Party, the Old Hag of Windsor wrote back, saying that she didn’t want to, because we have a Governor General as the Queen’s representative and that we should go to her representative instead. The idea of having an unelected monarchy as head of state is absurd. The idea of a non-partisan office (or, in the monarchy’s case, “office”) is not only absurd, but also very dangerous, because it is a form of tyranny, where the power to protect and correct is deliberately denied to the people, and on behalf of those in power. She allowed parliament to be suspended twice. She allowed non-violent protesters to be subject to police brutality and wrongful arrest. She rejected calls to intervene on behalf of the so-called hunger strike of the Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence, and refused to summon a Royal Inquiry into the so-called “Robocalls Scandal” (or, to put it more accurately, electoral fraud). In each of her condescending nonsensical responses to the last two letters, one sent by a man in BC who was concerned for the Chief, and the other Elizabeth May, she merely refused to intervene, and referred them to her representatives. It’s being lazy, folks. It’s also tyrannical, yet done so softly, so quietly, so gently, that the most gullible would rally behind her to justify her actions, since they care more about class and style than policy and substance. Better to have an elected partisan politician that can take the side of the weak and the oppressed, than the callous, cruel, indifferent eye and deaf ear of a non-partisan monarchy that doesn’t change and doesn’t heed to the cries of the people when they are in agony. And even if she did anything, that doesn’t merit her, someone who isn’t elected, as a credible, reliable and even necessary protector of democracy. How the fuck is even this monarch a protector of democracy, when she refuses to intervene on the behalf of democracy? And furthermore, since some claim her as a representative of the people (she isn’t because she isn’t elected), then why the fuck would this representative . . . have a representative?

And yet the royalists claim that “The Crown’s role … [is] to ensure that ‘the rules of the game’ are always followed, and to provide a non-partisan, non-violent safeguard . . . should normal democratic processes ever be threatened or break down.” Well, fuck you and your bullshit. That’s not true in the slightest! How is electoral fraud NOT a threat to democracy? How is electoral fraud NOT a threat to the normal democratic process of election? You fucks have been proven so wrong more than once, and yet you ratfuckers still lie! And fuck you, Michael Valpy, for calling the Rancid Old Whore a “constitutional fire extinguisher.” She isn’t, so you’ve proven to us that you became a professor by sucking a lot of cocks.

Canada’s political system is not based on any logic, but on the bizarre mental fecal matter of asylum inmates mad with power. Monarchy only appeals to three groups of people, all tightly related and working together in a matter reflective to the inbreeding of the monarchy itself: the simple-minded who are easily puzzled by organized society, the inmates of an asylum, and the power-ravenous. If the monarchy is democratic, then war is peace. If the monarchy guarantees and protects democracy, then freedom is slavery.  And if monarchy costs less and is non-partisan, then ignorance is strength.

As for the Americans who yearn for a constitutional monarchy, or a parliamentary system, well, you’re already living in one. Obama’s going to cut Social Security because, well, he’s a puppet of the GOP. Take a hint!

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” ~Desmond Tutu

Is constitutional monarchy willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then it is impotent. Is it able, but not willing? Then it is malevolent. Is it both able and willing? Whence then is its unwillingness to act? How would it not use its to worsen, aid, or make evil? And what right does it have to hold any power when it’s not been earned.

When Freedom Died (RIP Let Freedom Rain)

RIP Let Freedom Rain (2008-2013)

Yesterday, the host of Let Freedom Rain, Jymn Parett, a friend of mine, shut down his blog, possibly due to a severe nervous breakdown instigated by a bunch of feminist pieces of shit and leftie blowhards who subjected the poor man to abuse and censorshit, because he wrote a post about his past experience with being bullied by female bosses and superiors. While he confused workplace bullying with the modern militant online feminism, and how his bosses seem to represent that, I have no problem with someone like him venting and ranting on his own blog in what he deemed the most important piece of writing in his entire life. Years of frustration and plugged-up feelings, combined with unemployment and depression, led him to exercising his inherent right to freedom of speech. While I’m against the monarchy, I’m also against censorship of any form, and am in favour of virtually total freedom of speech. However morally reprehensible and repugnant or inaccurate (Jymn was neither of the first two, but even if he was inaccurate, he has right to speak freely and openly and vent the fury that’s been bottled up inside him for YEARS), the solution by the left has, regrettably, not been countering such vileness with truth and speech that is equally offensive or even better in speech, but prison time.

Jymn, I hope you’re out there, and I hope you recover soon. I don’t know what I can do on my end to help out but please be all right!

The Historical Fallacy

One of the lamest excuses to conserve monarchy is the historical fallacy, that the Crown gives Canada a history. Nevermind what it actually did, but that it was somehow there during these events. The most often cited historical event is the insignificant War of 1812 when we non-violent, anti-war Canadians allegedly burned down the whitehouse. I could say that the Colonialists in the American Colonies fought the French in the Seven Years War. Hell, at that time, George Washington fought with the British. Yet did that little fact prevent the Colonists from fighting for independence from their mother country? Of course not! Nor should it be an excuse for Canadians and Canada to conserve something that is not only far away and foreign but essentially unequal and undemocratic. Its like saying that because killing the women of your family to protect the honour of your family not because of anything rational about it (because there’s absolutely nothing rational about that but rather everything wrong about that) but because it’s been happening for so long. Then there’s something wrong with you. There’s also something inherently wrong with you if you think that the British wouldn’t fight for its territory, or think that Canada existed in 1812. We exist, yes, but as a dominion, not as a sovereign state.

The reason the royalists, no doubt, keep mentioning the Americans invading our soil (which in fact was in response to the Brits invading America, a fact that all royalists and Canadian “historians” ALWAYS leave out) is because there is in their dark little hearts a bitterness from the loss of territory of their so-precious empire by their own people, who fought for a newfound country that set its own course and, unlike us, made its own history.

Royal Idleness

As Idle No More rightfully rages on, our gracious Queen couldn’t idle more than she already does.

As usual, as Teresa Spence’s martyrdom is imminent, and Canada’s native children are fighting to preserve their rights, the Merry Old Whore of Windsor, who is not Canadian, the absentee head of state of our dominion (which is different from fully and outrightly indendent) and landlord of their estates, neither says nor does anything, since she is allegedly “above politics.” To be above politics, of course, is to be free from responsibility, from accountability, and in the case of monarchy, from democratic civil control.

I want to express a few things here: I’m of the opinion that there should be only one nation, and that should be Canada. Not all cultures are equal, but that such an attitude does not justify any needless persecution of a people who are struggling day and night to overcome the vast burdens laid upon them by Her Majesty’s Government in Ottawa. Monarchy, even if it’s isolated to a small native tribe somewhere in the world, is utterly wrong, if not totally evil, however benign the ruler may be or even is. I do think that all Aboriginals, regardless of what they call themselves, are Canadians through and through, born with the same rights as everyone else, including the right to be treated as equals. The land shouldn’t belong just to them or to just non-Aboriginals, but to all Canadians, for we are brothers and sisters of the same soil. I believe in nationalism and in national unity, but in a democratic republican form of government from top to bottom. Many nations under one nation, one flag, and two languages to unite all parts of Canada together (personally, I’d prefer French as the single national language even though I’m an Anglophone). To call for natives to partake in Canadian society is not to force them to assimilate, but government should not be mandated to either assimilate the natives or help them preserve their own cultures, specifically the benevolent, beneficial and neutral aspects of them. Modernize we must, and aggressively. Even though they collectively share the land, collective ownership cannot work at a grand scale, but it doesn’t mean they should surrender their collective ownership. You can only fit so many eggs inside a bucket.

That being said, Idle No More hasn’t gotten attention from the Queen of England, and she’ll pay no attention to them even if they ask for it. Should they give up, though? No. They have been, like any other native group on earth, subject to exploitation, discrimination, and contempt. Even during tours, native chiefs (who are only interested in power and land grabs, which would Bulkanise Canada into a region of divided, unstable, and often quarrelling tribal states), were denied the chance to present petitions to her, since, well, she’s “above politics.”

UPDATE: as I was writing this, I was shocked to discover news of a B.C. man, who wrote a letter to the Bitch of Windsor Castle regarding Chief Spence’s “hunger strike,” received a reply from the Old Whore, pulling a “go ask your dad” by telling her that she should refer her case to federal cabinet. Meanwhile, south of the border, the President of the United States, who is indirectly elected by the people through an electoral college, has put up a petition site called “We, the People” where the White House would respond to online petitions containing up to a certain number of signatures. Laughably, however, she did state that she would monitor the progress of Spence’s “strike,” meaning she won’t. And even if she did, what right does an unelected head of state, who isn’t even Canadian, and is absentee, have concerning our affairs?

I think, in a way, petitions work far better when presented before a member of the national legislature than before the President himself. Plus not all petitions are equal. For example, the first few petitions of “We, the People”, the official white house online petition website, were of ones requesting that their state secede from the Union. And the White House indeed respond, and it was, to condense the response, a “No.” And this online petition thing was Obama’s idea, not one of his members of cabinet. Unlike Canada, where everything is heavily bureaucratic and skeptical of the rights of the people, if not contemptuous of the, the United States at least tries to be a little more democratic, and at all levels. Under a monarchy, however, especially if it’s a democratic kingdom (an oxymoron in itself) power eventually becomes less and less democratic.

Bracanov Deserves a Medal

Never in the Commonwealth of Nations, the modern British Empire, has anyone ever been so daring against that filthy evil cancer called monarchy.

On the 15th of this month, a man in New Zealand was arrested for planning to chuck manure at that spoilt brat Prince Charles, the heir to the throne despite popular opinion. Sam Bracanov was a known anti-monarchist who was planning to do what we Canadians should be doing: to rise up and show their discontent towards the monarchy. “He didn’t qualify with his brain, he qualified with his body, and what (the) body produce(s) goes to toilet, so I would hit him with what goes to toilet,” he told reporters, addressing them while sitting on an upturned rubbish bin. This wasn’t the first time, however, he attempted to attack the royals. In 1994, the hero attempted to spray Chuff-Muncher Charlie with air freshener to, according to Sam’s words, “remove the stink of royalty.”

Drop the charges against this man and give him a medal for courage!

Games Lefties Play

Despite the title of this post, let’s get one thing straight: I’m of the left. I am a leftist. I am of the far-left. I am left wing. I am also democratic, which just so happens to be a left-wing idea. I am not a communist or anarchist, nor do I support the systems of anarchy or communism. I believe that government is necessary and fundamental to keep people from hurting each other, and to provide for the common good of all. People want to live freely and happily.

I live in Canada, which is predominantly a culturally left-leaning “country”. But I somewhat identify myself with the left here because there’s some ideas that the majority of leftists support while I object. The most glaring of these is, of course, the monarchy. Almost all leftists in Canada either don’t care about it, are royalist by default, royalist by ignorance, or, like Pierre Trudeau, would want to merely hide it. Only a handful of leftists want Canada to become a republic, yet even here there’s troublesome members of this group. Unlike myself, I am not a communist, nor do I believe in conspiracy theories like Canadian Action Party members do. And finally, I am of the extreme minority, probably of six people who think that the reason a republic is better than a monarchy goes far beyond just fiscal benefits and chronological relevance.

While I agree with a vast majority of leftist ideas, I also equally despise the vast majority of Canadian leftists, majority of whom support monarchy in one way or another. We all know that monarchists aren’t that bright. The majority of leftists use the typical royalist excuses as justification to retaining what is inherently and manifestly undemocratic, unequal and unfree. Power in a monarchy, however powerless it may seem to be, is inherited by blood, regardless of public opinion, unlike a republic where power is earned by ballot, regardless of blood. However democratic or free a society may seem to be under a monarchy, it is not free enough because no one can be free to elect or be elected head of state of their own country. Monarchy is the very antithesis to the principals of the left in general, which are liberty and equality for all. The excuses to have a monarchy are vast and various, yet every single one of them is wrong, and all of them are so morally repugnant and outrageously ridiculous that the very stench of their absurdness outreeks even the most foul of stenches. Of course, then again, the vast majority of Canadians have merely experienced a constitutional monarchy and cannot envision anything else beyond it. Their ignorance of government systems is rather staggering, and gives the conservatives an edge against us because they exploit it and reinforce it. Plus they have money, a fundamental and necessary tool the left, alas, shuns and rejects.
