There has been a coup in the United States. Or rather, to put it grammatically correct, there was a coup that has helped the shutdown of the American government. This cause was made by a simple change in the rules of the House of Representatives where, instead of allowing any member to forward a motion to resume the government, only the leader of the party majority may put forward such motion. This was made in the dead of night without any debate or oversight. In other words, the GOP of the United States has seized power, and is trying to transform their congress into Canada’s parliament, where parliament is not controlled equally by all members of the legislature, but by party leaders with MPs serving as mere puppets under threat of expulsion from the party if they fail to toe the line.
Canadians, perpetually arrogant and self-blind (the very reason why we live under monarchy and a half-formed yet misshapen constitution), fail to understand that our own government has been shut down, that democracy in its current fragmented state has been suspended, in the name of the whim of an executive who has shown us an example why term limits are important to a democracy. While a House Majority Leader is different from a Prime Minister, it nonetheless is an attempt to inch America away from a congressional legislature to a parliamentary one. And while parliaments may be entertaining when the business of a legislature is to govern, they are not as democratic as a congressional legislature, which is what a proper republic wound need in order to function.
Finally, in Ontario, lest we forget, the Privy Council under the unrepentant Dalton McGimpy did something similar by imposing a secret law on the province, without any debate or oversight by the provincial legislature, that expanded police powers dramatically, and that Canadians in Ontario are still living under.
Sometimes, it’s the small things that can have huge consequences.
For the third time, now, the most powerful non-existent political office in this pretend country has decided, on a mere whim, to again suspend Parliament and hold a throne speech in October of this year. The excuses from Herpes has been anything but existent, like his office.
What’s very interesting in the article, however, is a small note (I’m certain no-one will ever take notice) is made when mentioning that this wasn’t the first time Herpes suspended parliament to spare himself political embarassment:
“… prorogation, a standard parliamentary tool that has the effect of cancelling any legislation that’s still before the House.”
Is this true? Really? In order to stop a bill from becoming law in Canada, parliament should be suspended by the executive? As opposed to getting the bill vetoed by the chief executive? All that trouble for terminating a bill? Hell, the President of the United States and France respectively don’t terminate bills, but merely return them to Congress or the National Assembly for reconsideration! Reconsideration, where the legislature looks at the bill again, then by vote decides whether to terminate it or pass it again! Why do Canadians prefer to use rocket science for even the simplest of matters is far beyond me!
That said, this is blatantly abuse of power. Not just suspending parliament for any reason, but also dissolving it, especially for non-confidence motions, budget failures, and whenever elections are called whenever the executive feels like it! We may have health care, but that doesn’t justify conserving a shitty form of government, nor any more ties to the British crown!
And once again, the Queen will allow this to happen. And even if she did meddle against it, it’s still interference by someone that isn’t Canadian and wasn’t elected by Canadians. And Canadians won’t riot over this, either. But they should. Against this, and against the Crown as well.
Monarchists, like fascists and every other branch of conservatism and centrism, are complete and utter idiots and crazy people. They literally believe in the idea that monarchs are free from corruption simply on the propagandistic garbage they’re fed by the very institution willing to manipulate public opinion to support it. Anyone who adores, admires or loves monarchy is either blind, stupid, crazy, or evil. They hate the idea of the people governing themselves, because they themselves have this slave-master mentality. They not only want to be blindingly obedient to the most frivilous, pettiest, or irrational whims of their rulers, but also want to chain others.
Monarchists are naturally secluded from the rest of the world save for the internet, where they can spread their poison. They’re members of a personality cult, far worse than a celebrity fan club, who deify their ruler, one imposed on them by a deity, without consent of the governed. They want to kill democracy, yet ironically, they are trying to gain public support so that they can kill it with thunderous applause.
Monarchists have blind and total distrust in the election process to such a degree, that anyone elected is an enemy, regardless of their talents, gifts, ideas, merit or contribution. They cling to this myth about such things can be hereditary, that the people should not only have a say in who should govern them, but be forced to accept their rulers blindingly, even in the face of glaring mistakes that politicians make. When a politician makes a mistake, it’s a crime, and they’re thrown out of office or lose the next election. They don’t like that. They don’t like it when the people have a say in who their representatives are, and they don’t like it when authority figures can be thrown out, or shown “disrespect.” Monarchists literally want to murder, torture, intimidate, harass and abuse anyone who has any differences of opinion, or who shows disrespect towards their favorite celebrity, or to anyone authority, or to “traditional values,” which rob the people blind of their right to govern themselves, even at the executive level. “Traditional values” are not reasonable, rational, or logical values.
Monarchists are, to borrow Gore Vidal’s description of Ayn Rand’s followers, simple folk who are easily puzzled by organized society, who hate taxes, who hate the idea of a welfare state. They don’t want their money to be given to an elected government that is obligated to use it for public purposes, but to an unelected government to use as it pleases regardless of the welfare of the people.
Monarchists are a vicious cancer, and should be rooted out, gutted out, cut out and cast out from the national body, so that they don’t molest a free people, nor seek to enslave them. However moderate, they should never be trusted by even the most moderate of republicans.
As for Canadian monarchists, they think that there’s no French people when they talk about “history” or “heritage.” They think that we should sacrifice true independence, and the right of the people to choose their head of state, in the name of “tradition” or “heritage” or “history”, that democracy is merely an American invention. They’re angry at the Americans not because of 1812, which was over the occupation by American forces that wanted to redress grievances with the British, but because the Americans fought and won their independence from the British Crown; monarchists in Canada are angry at them because a people, once private property of the Crown, rebelled and won their independence. Their excuses are, while numerous, baseless, absurd and ridiculous. They don’t realize that under the British monarchy, this pretend state called Canada has in fact been heavily Americanized, yet they revere an object like the British Crown as some idol of worship, and falsely claims it keeps us Canadian. They see French and Native people as mere trophies of conquest, and are only angry at them because, apart from their differences in ethnicity and language, stand up for themselves and are fiercely independent, while the Canadian monarchist disguises his servitude with fake patriotism and empty lip service to democracy and freedom, yet not equality. Finally, the Canadian monarchist literally believes that the British Empire was founded through peace and love.
Don’t think that this post is something that propagates or supports the conspiracy delusion of a North American Union.
Canada has as much need to be part of the North American Union as it is needs a monarchy. In other words, it deserves neither, even though the North American Union is, in fact, a myth. While there are people who genuinely want a united North America (one of them being royalist), these numbers are tiny, and are going up against the vast majority of people who utterly loathe the idea of having the sovereignty of their country — or in our case, “country” — erased, and of being absorbed into some superstate. Count me in as among the numbers of people who against such an idea, even though this idea is a total myth. Yet some Canadians, all of whom are idiots, literally believe and even propagate the concept of a North American Union being the consequence of abolishing the monarchy, of severing ties to the British crown and establishing a Canadian republic. It just baffles me to think that we would have such pretend pride in ourselves, yet we would be interested in switching empires as opposed to being a truly independent country. This makes no sense. Part of my republicanism comes from the fact that we’re not a real country, that being a dominion is really pretending to be independent without actually being independent. Yet this concept has given us this idea that we’re literally so weak that we can’t survive as a sovereign nation. Even if there is a threat to us being absorbed into such a union, there’s one way we, as a republic, can solve this: don’t vote for people who support a North American Union. You’ve got to be stupid to think that we’d want to elect anyone that would compromise or destroy our independence once we become a republic. That’s as stupid as the idea that someone unelected, who holds the crown for life, who is at worst a tyrant with absolute power, at best an utterly rubber-stamping puppet, and who is succeeded by blood even in spite of public opinion is somehow a representative of the people just as much as the fascist excuse of totalitarianism is in a single unelected leader that represents the people who, in turn, are deprived of their freedom in order to devote their beings to the state. Monarchy relies on its subjects to serve the state, not the state serving the people, thus we’re called subjects, a subjugated people.
There is no plan to unite North America, and that those believe in one or who want one can go fuck themselves. Even if it was imminent, the monarchy will inevitably do nothing. When I was young, I knew that Europe adapting a single currency would be disastrous since it would put every country in the Union at an economic disadvantage. If it goes down in one country, it goes down in the rest of Europe. Besides, we’re too large a country already, and have no need for more space. Yet royalists are exploiting the typical Canadian (read: idiot) in the street and online to feed them their disgusting, anti-democratic garbage, that we should rely on someone who has already demonstrated total unwillingness to help us since somehow acting against anything that harms the people is either political or altruistic, and that we don’t understand why we should just mandate a President to act in times of crisis while the legislature is on hiatus during a national emergency. Few royalists are die-hard fascists, while most of them are, as Gore Vidal described them of Ayn Rand’s followers, “simple people who are puzzled by organized society, who don’t like paying taxes, who dislike the welfare state.” To them, altruism is evil, that democracy and republicanism is a manifestation or result of altruism, and that selfishness at the expense of many is the true virtue.

Monarchy is an abomination, an evil, and an affront to democracy. There is no such thing as divine right of kings because either there is no God, or people are forgetting that we were all created free and equal by God. Intelligence is not hereditary, nor is skill or talent.
One of the greatest documentaries ever made:
I am so tired of the pathetic excuses conjured by the royalist filth to preserve this vile institution. Among these, of course, is the concept that the monarchy is non-partisan, since we’re somehow too inferior to tolerate or overcome or even take advantage of politics for the better good. There is no possibility that any human being would be remotely politically non-partisan. The best example, of course, is the awarding of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals to a couple of verminous scumbags who are against the women’s right to choose life or abortion. CBC comments on the article have been rather vitriolic, yet only few have ever addressed the rancid reality of monarchy to a hoard of idiots that infect the website of the government-owned broadcasting company.
If Canadians wanted their own version of this photo, they’d replace the indigenous Africans with the indigenous North Americans.
I can’t believe Canadians, especially the young and foolish, went gaga over the royal wedding of this bastard. The media, government and
Fascist Monarchist League all are responsible for that, of course, as well as Tom Freda’s ever failing gentle push against something that actually requires a truckload of C4 to remove.
No matter who’s on the throne, no matter how young he is, no matter if he rides a bike or wanted to invite the poor to his wedding . . . this is it. This is monarchy in a nutshell. The masses on the bottom serving those in power. This is also what Canadian monarchy is: an unelected whites-only position, with everyone else under their feet. This is what the enemies of democracy masturbate to, of the sight and act of domination and racial domination, and of yearning to not just be dominated, not just to have someone to rule over them for life, but to dominate and chain others.
This is what a monarchy is like, where the people are naked servants underneath those who think that it is their right to rule over others without their consent.
William’s racist romp looks very similar to this, doesn’t it:
Seriously, motherfucker, those two things attached to your pelvis down to the bone are called legs. Use them, you lazy spoiled little shit.
How Tom Freda Failed the Republican Movement
Tom Freda established Citizens for a Canadian Republic in 2002, thirty-two-years too late after the Monarchist League of Canada was founded in 1970. From the start, Freda was attempting to reach out to republicans, but he was also trying to concentrate power into his own hands, perhaps due to harassment by members of the ML, as well as the Orange Order and other royalist, anti-democracy groups that have gained a stranglehold. So far, his accomplishments have been allowing the Canadian government to strengthen the monarchy since he’s mainly focused on the oath of citizenship, and because he is so intolerant to other voices and stronger fighters that he would even help the royalists by “purging” them from his group, exposing them who they are, and even labelled them as “extremists” and even “royalists.”
The Monarchist League, of course, has become one of the most influential political organizations in Canada, and its members include MPs and Senators and other holders of government office, provincially and nationally. The League was founded by Irish-born pedophile John Aimers, who wasn’t even born in Canada (yet likes to meddle in the affairs of other foreign powers as much as he does young boys) as an overreaction to Pierre Trudeau’s attempts to hide the monarchy very slowly (While some say Trudeau was a closeted republican, I say that he was muddled, and did a shitty job trying to establish Canada as a republic, if he was even actually trying). While there were only allegations of pedophilia made against Aimers during his tenure at Selwyn House School, he was never investigated, perhaps because of some meddling by his beloved League. Bribes? Intimidation? Influence peddling? No one knows, but then again, Canada has a history of letting pedophiles in power, alleged and real, get away with their crimes. Aimers is both a citizen of Canada and the United States, the latter of which happens to be a republic.
Yet despite Aimers’ colourful history and the control of the government from the local to provincial level, the republican movement has been dragging its ass due to the uncharismatic
dictatorship leadership of Mr. Freda, whose lack of charisma may be due to his 30-year profession as a stock photographer and ten years as a technical writer, as he explains in his unfunny biography. Mr. Freda’s group has also held only few protests, yet stopped out of fear of attracting extremists and offending people, and has gone out of his way to emerge only when the monarchy comes into the view of the media. It seems that Mr. Freeda is more concerned about trying not to offend people than about being right. He is the self-appointed representative of all republicans, and denounces those who question, challenge or damn his leadership as a disgrace to the entire movement.
While there have been successful attempts at creating other groups, they suffered from the same stagnation and lack of motivation of its members and leadership as Freda’s organization, usually without a set goal.
You’re a disgrace, Freda. How far have we come? Harper restored the prefix of Royal to the Canadian army, navy and air force, and ordered the Queen’s portrait to be put up in all embassies of Canada, while you’re wasting time on a fucking oath. You’re so ashamed of your concept that you mush your words to hide your views.
