Absurd whitewashing: U.S. Army overlooks ‘know your enemy’ rule

Welcome to our brave new world of truth, honesty and courage. The U.S. Army has a Special Operations Training Course, where its commandos, Green Berets, secret military operatives and so on are taught about the enemy, and the context of whom they’re fighting. Today, it’s not the communists or fascists who the Americans and the […]

Obama panders to Hollywood on gay marriage

President Barack Obama has changed his mind about same-sex marriage again, partly after discussing the issue with his daughters Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10. Nice. Now we wait for the Congressional Medal of Honor to be awarded to the “awesome cute guy” from One Direction. Can you imagine how the media would have reacted if […]

The modern heretic

The world has changed a great deal. The divisions are now less about right and left than about freedom and oppression. Do you support the right to believe, speak, even offend, or do you want society to be strictly controlled? We see things particularly strongly when it comes to the increasingly harsh attacks on Christianity, […]

Whole lotta shakin’ and cryin’ going on

I know I shouldn’t, but I just can’t help it. Last Saturday I received an e-mail from a fellow named Jon Allen, the lead organizer of the robocalls demonstration that took place in Toronto on Sunday. His e-mail was headed, “Egyptian revolutionary leader to speak at Toronto rally against your voter suppression,” and explained, “Sherif […]

#cdnpoli – People aren’t as stupid as leftists seem to think

If only the political establishment and the chattering classes were as sensible and considerate as the Canadian people. The mass response to the so-called robocalls scandal has been one of drowning indifference. Eager pollsters have rushed to the electorate to fulfill their hopes and dreams that the possibility of a few people making dumb phone […]

Lust for scandal

Good Lord, it’s the most repugnant and shocking political scandal since Louis-Napoleon carried out his coup in 1851, and President Nixon made a vicarious visit to Watergate. Yes, a few low-ranking Tories totally unknown to anybody around the prime minister may or may not have made some phone calls to potential Liberal voters giving them […]

Losing faith in Catholic education

Oh, Sister O’Reilly, you’d be turning in your grave. Mind you, anyone with any intelligence or sense of decency would be performing a bit of a liturgical dance over this one.The Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association has issued its 2012 annual conference resolutions, and they make for sad, if unintentionally amusing, reading. Seldom have I […]

A terrorist? Me?!

So we’re all terrorists now at Sun News. I had no idea! I thought I was someone who deplored and condemned terror, who believed in turning the other cheek, and who tried to read, write and think his way through contemporary problems. My colleagues at the television network seemed rather similar — gentle souls mostly, […]

Islam, honour, murder

I sat last Sunday watching television with a mixture of incredulity and anger as a police inspector stood in front of a camera and explained the evils of domestic violence. He was discussing, of course, the Shafia case and the murder of four innocent women, some of them mere girls, by their Muslim father, their […]

Burka bravery: Women seeking extended ban that has nothing to do with religion

It says a great deal about Canadian pluralism and decency — and about the diversity that still exists in the corners, if not mainstream, of Islam — that a group of Muslim women can come forward and ask a Conservative government minister to extend, not limit, the burka ban. Those brave activists within the Muslim […]

I’m Telling Your Commie

Dear JW: Thanks for writing to me. I also want to take a moment to thank you for sending an email to one of my Marxist bosses urging my censure for a recent column that I wrote. Among other things, you, a self-described liberal, allege that my column was racist. I think there are a […]

Union extremists pushing aggressive sex-ed on students

There has been a great deal of discussion in Ontario recently about a radical and intrusive sex education curriculum being proposed by the province’s Liberal government. What is sometimes forgotten in all this is how so many of these redundant and damaging proposals are initiated by teachers’ unions. Not, it should be stressed, ordinary teachers, […]

War on Christmas: Fanatics trying to take a peace out of this celebration

I have friends who are conscientious objectors in the war on Christmas. They don’t celebrate the birth of Christ, but they’re not so neurotic that they will actively fight against it. Then there are people like me, who joined the resistance years ago, and carry out combat actions behind enemy lines. But I’ve hardly ever […]

Don’t shoot the messenger

How sensitive am I today? I ask because Michael Erickson, a former NDP candidate, gay activist, and Toronto high school teacher (yes, the new holy trinity), is leading a campaign insisting that I need sensitivity training. Not just me, but pretty much everyone at Sun News, because the TV station accepted adverts criticizing the Toronto […]

Pampered white fools

In a healthier, more ethical and robust, and better adjusted age, the so-called occupiers would not have been tolerated for more than a few moments, and we would not have been obliged to spend enormous amounts of public money on the police, judges, and politicians wasting their and our time on responding to some of […]
