Poisonous Cat Fur!

It was nice to read the Nat Post this morning and find out from Pearl Eliadis that I'm "poisonous". It brought a smile to this kitty's whiskers. Here's the original "Texas Cage Match Post" our girl Pearl refers to.

Pearl Eliadis, a prominent human rights lawyer, responded that what Mr. Borovoy thought 40 years ago should not determine the current state of human rights law, and that the arguments against human rights commissions dealing with complaints against media are premised on the notion that "new rights are bad rights."

She said the commissions are "strategically and uncomfortably poised" in "dynamic tension" among NGOs, government, voters, industry and other influences, and it is "almost proof of their relative success that nobody is happy."

Ms. Eliadis singled out one in particular, blazingcatfur. blogspot.com, as "poisonous" for referring to her panel at the conference as a "Texas cage match."

She said it was evidence of the "appalling tone" that is "illustrative of how badly this debate has gone."

Should I be worried? I mean, they went after Mark Steyn not for his content, but for his "tone".

Yay for the kitty!

Forgive my pessimism, but I don't think things are going well. Most readers of Blazing Cat Fur, I hazard, would like that the CHRC be done away with. All of us want at least that section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act be deleted. What we don't want is a CHRC re-invigorated with a tidier section 13, and just mildly constrained by a few requirements of procedural fairness. But I fear that what we don't want is what we're going to get. Unless a political party comes out against section 13 (we need more than just a few random MPs), all that will happen is that Richard Moon or a parliamentary committee will recommend a few minor changes, and the CHRC will happily accept them and come out stronger. No political party is going to stand against 13 because no party judges that being against 13 will win votes or being silent on it will lose votes. The parties are probably right. If this were a matter on which votes hang, likely enough the newspapers would have sensed that it is and then they would have bothered to report the news about Boission, Moon, and so on. Of course, I might be wrong--maybe the CHRC is a political issue upon which a substantial number of votes depend. I hope that I'm wrong, but I don't see grounds to be optimistic. Maybe if Maclean's is found indeed to have exposed some Canadians to hate or contempt in virtue of their religion.... Even then I wouldn't be sure.

Cat fur, you should be used to cats hissing and spitting by now.

OK so far we've heard these neurotic ideologues list sarcasm as hate, dissenting opinion as hate, critical thinking as hate and now "tone" denotes a poisonous social evil.

I think these HRC mooks are so xenophobic nothing much beyond the tiny vacuum they function in passes muster.

Funny how defending yourself, your country, your culture against ant-democratic, anti-liberal institutions and tyranny and oppression is now called "poisonous".

Ardvark  – (7:12 PM)  

I was unaware that words could be poisonous, but thanks to the HRC for holding this little soirée so a poor average citizen like myself can learn something.

But appalling ??

What does that really mean, and more importantly where is the line drawn between appalling speech vs hate speech? No doubt someone at a HRC are working at deciding that line as you read this.

Keep it up BCF!! It is working.

Sounder  – (7:30 PM)  

Now, while at a conference put on by the CHRC, a CIC Muslim was allowed to spread hatred and contempt for Mark Steyn. This country is being run by the Keystone Cops.


xanthippaschamberpot  – (7:31 PM)  

Our biggest problem lies in that the HRCs are unable to distinguish between 'thought/belief/opinion' and 'action'.

Perhaps it is the infamous 'Section 13', perhaps it is the wearing of self-imposed blinders, perhaps it is something more sinistrous which prevents them from making this distinction. And that is a problem.

'TOLERANCE' must extend to ALL opinions/beliefs/thoughts, no matter how hateful or foreign to us they may be - that is the definition of the word!!!

But 'TOLERANCE' must never extend to behaviours that are illegal: that way anarchy lies. The HRCs are, unwittingly, undermining the very rule of law they think they are enforcing.

THAT is a problem...

Good stuff!
It's fascinating how sensitive these tin gods are when people dare to question their agenda. You'd think the money, travel and perks would be enough to salve their wounds. Or perhaps they're resentful, dreaming of the good old days when all they had to worry about was a letter to the editor.

Way to go, BCF! Congratulations for getting under that skin, poison and all.

I hope one day myself to be cited as a venomous, or at least malign, "contributor" to the "debate"...

Bring on the poison. Did you know that many cancer cures use poison. The HRC is a cancer to human freedom. These quasi-marxist feminist types think reality is constructed and eventually much attempt to destroy any competing narrative.

So, damn their repression, we're socially conservative, we're Christians and we're not going away!

noel  – (11:57 PM)  

Where do Canada's Hateful, Revenge Commissars get their names? Pearl. Lynch. Well, one can have some fun, even crude fun I suppose, but let's not go there. Not nice. Bad tone. Off key.

Here is an almost unheard of situation where supposedly educated CHRC women -- at least to 10th grade, I'm imagining, maybe more -- demand to be mocked before they ultimately land themselves in jail.

Jail? At best. Excused, fined and shunned? At worst.

Probably, these two and their cronies, fast becoming infamously identifiable -- and increasingly minority, will go down in history as the most pathetic, ill-informed, perfidious, power-hungry bunch of losers ever imagined. Indubitably, these thugettes and thugs, will have caused more hate than all of the neo-nazis lined up in a row. Where do they find them?

What is wrong with a "Texas stage match" reference? Surely, that phrase accurately describes confrontations where one side includes at least one pit-bitch terror.

OK, OK, I admit it: my tone is a little restrained; I'll back off.

They want us all to think just exactly how they think. So we'll put them out of work, right? What a farce.

"Don't you love farce?
My fault I fear.
I thought that you'd want what I want.
Sorry, my dear.
But where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns.
Don't bother, they're here."

Please, miserable women, your act has failed, your cruel jokes have failed, you are a disgrace to your country. You are a disgrace to the ideals of a viable democracy. Time to exit your stage and be heard no more.

Congrats, BCF, for getting the nod in the National Post!

What that creep Eliadis and others like her need to understand is that these supposed new "rights" are NOT rights at all. They are a means of crushing dissent -- not something that should be tolerated in a democracy. That's why the commissions and tribunals need to be abolished.

BTW, luv the Alice Cooper video. I still remember (back in the 70s) when my dad asked, "This Alice Cooper...Who is she anyways?" When I informed him (laughing) that Alice was a guy, my dad just walked away shaking his head.

Bad Bad BCF - hurting the serentity of the CIC.

I have previous reporting these hissing posts to PETA as well as to Mrs. Harper - a noted cat lover.

Shows the CJC, the CIC and the CHRC are worried and are monitoring these Blogs.

And at taxpayer expense too. Nice racket or "cage match" if you can get it while pretending to work.

Many, many congrats! You're doing something right if you get in the goons' crosshairs :o) And don't worry -- if they try anything stupid, you'll have a LOT of people in your corner.

Way to stick it to 'em!

Good show Cat Fur, these sheltered elites aren't used to criticism.

They function in an atmosphere of reciprocal self-righteous vanity.

Good, you got one of these tin horn aristocrats right where it hurts.

Keep it up.

PS; If there's anything "poisonous" and "appalling" it the piously sanctimonious contempt HRC petty bureaucrats show for the majority, and particularly the taxpaying public critical of their excesses.

How long did they think they could rebuke Canada as some imagined racist sinkhole without seeing backlash from justifiably outraged severely normal Canadians?

Unlike Mark Mercer, I'm a pragmatist and I know that constant political agitation about HRC excesses will trim its numbers back as their budget for harassing the public is cut. The fastest way to kill a public parasite is cut of its funding.

Any of them with any smarts will dust off their resume and seek alternate employment. Just don't mention the HRC work because HRC workers will become stigmatized as vindictive amoral and inept before this administrative farce is corrected.

JR  – (2:41 PM)  

Well done, BCF! You're certainly attracting attention. Keep upping that dose of "poison" - whatever it takes to kill off the HRCs' racket.

From the list of speakers and agenda for the CASHRA 2008 Conference (abuse of taxpayers' money) it seems clear that, while killing HRA Sec. 13 is extremely important, the the "human rights" industry needs to be culled in many other ways too.

Mark Mercer –   – (2:55 PM)  

Do we have any reason to think that government will cut back the budget of the CHRC--that it will cut its budget in response to our arguments and demands? I'm sceptical. Not even Stephen Harper's government thinks it politically wise to do much about the CHRC. Ezra Levant makes the hopeful observation that what might get Harper motivated is that by soliciting a report on itself, the CHRC usurped Harper's authority. Maybe Mr Levant is right. But it seems to me that until a political party (as a whole) makes freedom of expression its cause, the best we can hope for is tiny little changes, changes that might make the CHRC stronger. (These thoughts are in response to anonymous's comment just before JR's above.)

Hi Mark Mercer:

While pessimism could be viewed as realistic -- the enemy is daunting -- it's not the best attitude for the front lines in a real war though. We are in a real war.

Let's not forget that our words, those of our forefathers -- and theirs -- remained civil and reasonable only for a time. Then survival, and its rules, took over.

These CHRC "losers" will only last so long; history has shown it time and time again. They are soft tyrants, and they think they have it right when they crush the individual before they crush the state, before the state and/or the individual crushes them.

Lefty, multiculti, poison (that's an OK word now) is not merely your garden variety poison. It is the poison that kills, even after it has killed. It is the poison that maims generations to come, and causes blood to run in the streets -- brother against brother, sister against sister. All the time it waits in ambush behind stupidity, behind goody-goody deception and misinformation, all the time making the bad look good.

Free-speech/expression/communication is the fundamental freedom of all liberty. It is an image of personal identity, the soul, the spirit, the being -- ontological substance, if you want fancier words. History has shown that image cannot be regulated, it cannot be restrained except by the will of the individual (by the grace of God, some would add).

[God made us in his image, it is said. An image (icon) is a conduit for communication between the Creator and the created.]

Hateful, Revenge commissars, commissions, proponents, think they can force a new soul and spirit into the individual by control rather than by reason, discussion, or dialogue.

What the Warman, Lynch, and Eliadis types don't realize yet is that their kind of poison is what has caused so much blood to be shed over so many millennia. And they think they are right because regulation is their mantra.

Crushing the person, their soul, their spirit, is as evil as murdering their body. It is the worst violence, the worst tyranny, the worst fear.

"Do we have any reason to think that government will cut back the budget of the CHRC"

Yes. This is how every political albatross is disposed of quietly. See the gun registry as a reference case, also CBC, NACSOW and CCFGC along with dozens of other embarrassing agencies and Fed subsidized trouble maker lobbies.

Robert Wood –   – (7:47 PM)  

Ms. Cat Fur, (I somehow figure you are feminine) you blaze in my heart. I support everything you say about the xHRCs.

I hate them; I despise them; the people who work for them are loathesome animals.

If they sue you, they sue me.

Interestingly, the xHRCs will not sue those criticising them as it would force a public discussion of their roles. So, we can insult these "MF"s as much as we wish, and they have no come-back.

MIkhael  – (9:32 PM)  

As an immigrant from Eastern Europe who lived under communism, and saw family members jailed for 'crimes against the state", I can tell you that everthing the HRCs do in Canada parallels the court system under communism. Arbitrary prosecution, arbitrary sentencing, and lack of transparency.

But nowhere is there a more perfect parallel between Stalin's and other communist courts than in the "public apology". It was standard operation to have the accused sign some sort of public document to confess his guilt, and to "permit" him to return, thus diminished, to the community as an abject lesson.

This is what these HRCs are doing to Canada. They must be stopped. The entire HRC system needs to be eliminated. No one can be trust with that sort of extrajudicial power.

Ambrose  – (9:59 PM)

As I was reading the Post article yesterday morning I was thinking, "now there's one kitty who must be preening his whiskers today." Even Ezra Levant is jealous of BCF.

Didn't Our Lord make a comment about "casting pearls before swine"? But what do you do when the Pearl is the swine?

Congratulations from one kitty to another.
