It's confirmed black nationalist; BLM-supporting; Joy-Ann Reid / MSNBC-incited.

Here's a look at his social media: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1462633167890751497.html

In fairness to Kyle, without training, he only shot the pedophile, the leftist 'revolutionary' and the failed executioner trying to murder him, and in the case of the 2nd, he merely disarmed him.

I'm no George Will fan, but he's right in saying that Russia is a nationalist socialist state minus the explicit racial identitarianism. Russia is nowhere close to being as free as the free state of Florida or Texas, notwithstanding federal overreach. Russia, is, however, more free than Canada and Australia and blue states, but that isn't saying much.

This video, which emerged long before the trial, I thought was pretty damn good, given the trial and the testimonies offered therein have confirmed nearly all of the points made: https://www.thepopcan.net/post/recap-of-how-kyle-rittenhouse-defended-himself

Also, the fact that Rosenbaum was a convicted child rapist who told then 17-year-old Kyle he would kill him if he got him alone is all you need to know regarding mindset re: Kyle shooting rather than having his gun taken away. Additionally: Kyle's testimony that he witnessed the mob curb-stomp a business owner the previous day sets the stage for him knowing he could not disarm or fall to the mercy of the mob.

Grosskreutz taking the stand was the best thing ever for the defense. He was unlikeable, caught in numerous lies, demonstrated that his hand and arm work fine...Then the whole matter of bragging online that his gun jammed and he fully meant to kill Kyle killed that narrative. Also, later when the defense pointed out that his claim that Kyle re-racked his gun was false put a nail in that testimonial coffin.

Ultimately, this case demonstrates that the Democrat mayors and governors abdication of their basic duties led to children, old women, and regular citizens taking up arms to protect their communities from leftist terrorists, otherwise unimpeded by law enforcement etc. Kyle was putting out fires, administering first aid, and protecting small businesses from terrorists, and when cut off from his 'partner' and prevented from rejoining his group by the police, was forced to defend himself when faced with certain death.

Arguing that people under 29, particularly kids don't need to be vaccinated.

Also, granted they haven't been vaccinating children for the CCP Virus in Canada yet and therefore lack all pertinent data relevant to the conversation, your 200-times figure is inapplicable. Even in the States, the FDA admits that the impact on kids is unknown, and will only become known after this present generation is jabbed and used as guinea pigs.

Keep in mind: the conversation regards risk-reward for kids. SO: if kids aren't dying, haven't died, and instead face the possibility of myocarditis or other adverse effects even if rare, then it doesn't look like they ought to be (from their own points of view, which is the only point of view that matters when dealing with medical treatment) getting the clot shot. No death and the possibility of getting natural immunity, which is longer lasting and more powerful, versus possible side effects and middling resistance that will diminish over a matter of a few months.

Who at Moderna, Pfizer, or in the Liberal regime needs boot polish when you're out there, tongue-a-wagging for free?

Shawinigan handshake! Also, Chretien was further right than today's so-called Conservatives by a large measure. Also spared us from going to Iraq.

Especially since the CCP worked with the US to undermine the CCCP and was instrumental in the Soviet Union's collapse.

He did the same thing the Aussies did: defer policy-making to the medical establishment, who have a single KPI (no / fewer deaths) contra a host of key performance indicators that a politician ought to consider and base his decisions after (job numbers; GDP; consumer buying power; housing availability; etc.). He's now trying to assume the authority he's delegated over the past several months, in part to signal to his base, but also just as a matter of course. All the lefties he's made feel safe are now going to return to their red-cloth and all of the libertarians and conservatives he's alienated are going to relish in his titan fall.

The trouble is that there is no one in the field who is good; only worse options. If the Liberals win in 2022, a great deal will go wrong, but my sense is that Ontario will be thoroughly Quebec-ified to the chagrin of rural Ontarians.

We should have an exchange program: rural Ontarians to Alberta and urban Albertans to Ontario. Then we can just cement the divide and call Confederation quits.

Regarding the last line in your response, which Hayek and George F. Will would rush to agree with, I highly recommend the book "Bearing False Witness" by Rodney Stark. Real eye-opener regarding Christianity's contributions to science, culture, civilization, commerce, etc., as well as centuries of anti-Christian propaganda.

In terms of your greater point, that's absolutely right. Similar reasoning comes into play with Catholic schools in Canada. The law guaranteeing them similarly requires them to be explicitly Catholic, so the gay-ification of Catholic schools and their apostasization threatens their separate status, and it all comes back down to freedom of conscience, religion, and expression.

Tuchodi an unwitting proponent of the Russian troll farm narrative manufactured by the exposed Clinton campaign, which has been soundly deconstructed and proven wanting (recent Sussman revelations very damning). Total hack.

Oh I see: you don't understand the argument or refuse to acknowledge you originally misunderstood it, and now find comfort in an extraneous and false binary.

Arthur C. Brooks makes the argument that compassion and kindness are the route to countering contempt in America.

The argument in this article is that compassion and kindness are useless to counter a contempt that has become institutionalized.

If meaningful checks and balances remained, or there was some equilibrium in or amongst major institutions, particularly in those that are meant to be apolitical, then it'd be a different story. Instead, Big Business, Big Government, Big Media, and Big Tech have found alignment on a number of radical-leftist wavelengths, which make 1:1 compassion or 'reasonableness' ineffective, especially when made invisible and social contagions are 'cured' by censorship or outsiding.

Two-thirds of the way through the article, it's made clear that that maxim serves on an individual basis, but that when dealing with totalitarian apparatchiks / apparats, a more combative approach needs be taken. Thus, calling out proponents of institutionalized contempt is fair game and consistent.

The Columbia Journalism Review describes Media Bias/Fact Check as an amateur attempt at categorizing media bias and Van Zandt as an "armchair media analyst".[2] The Poynter Institute notes, "Media Bias/Fact Check is a widely cited source for news stories and even studies about misinformation, despite the fact that its method is in no way scientific."[4]

I second this recommendation. Phenomenal book. Demonstrates with care and historic detail precisely why Disraeli, Lincoln, and John A's other contemporaries all respected him so much. He 'made us' at a time when that was probably the most unlikely outcome.

To get rushed approval for the experimental vaccines, there could be no remedial alternatives on hand (e.g. hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin). This is why these were and still are demonized. The corporate news media is doing the bidding of Big Government and Big Pharma, and Big Tech is lending a hand.

Monoclonal antibody therapies, the aforementioned drugs, and natural immunity: these have been downplayed because hundreds of billions of dollars are at stake.
