The Cracked Crystal Ball II: Barbara Kay on REAL Women Canada’s Outburst

In one sense, I was very happy to read Barbara Kay’s column excoriating Gwen Landolt and REAL Women Canada for their attack on Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird this week.  I was pleased to see that at least someone on the far right could see the ridiculousness of Landolt’s position.

Leftist Jab: And then Jonathan Kay Compared China’s Forced Abortion Laws to Canadian Women’s Right to Choose

“About one hundred and fifty words”

That’s what must have been going through the mind of National Post’s columnist Jonathan Kay when he was nearing the end of his column on Chen Guangcheng, the Chinese human rights activist.

“I’m short one hundred and fifty words!”

And so, what does every terrible pundit in Canada do when he’s short of ideas? He thinks: “What’s the Canadian connection?”

Chrissie Blatchford: Too Wrapped Up In Her Own Prejudices & Partisanship To Actually Work at Seeking the Truth & Real Story

Indeed she is, so are others in her field today, sadly. But before I go into that. I will do a little review of the past few days of others of her friends like CJAD’s Trude the Prude and of course, Johnny Kay’s Mommy, Babs Kay. Because they are all guilty of , . . . → Read More: Chrissie Blatchford: Too Wrapped Up In Her Own Prejudices & Partisanship To Actually Work at Seeking the Truth & Real Story . . . → Read More: Chrissie Blatchford: Too Wrapped Up In Her Own Prejudices & Partisanship To Actually Work at Seeking the Truth & Real Story

Politics and its Discontents: The Extreme Right Continues Its Jack Layton Barrage Of Abuse

Given the recent spate of classless comments about Jack Layton by people like Christie Blatchford, Jonathan Kay and Barbara Kay, I have come to the conclusion that there is something deeply threatening to the far right in the life and death of Jack Lay… . . . → Read More: Politics and its Discontents: The Extreme Right Continues Its Jack Layton Barrage Of Abuse

by matttbastard David J. Climenhaga, responding to National Post columnist Christie Blatchford’s now-infamous cranky, contrarian reaction to Canada’s outpouring of love and admiration for Socialist cur Taliban Jack Layton (HISSSSSSS!): [T]he offending column is far from the worst piece Blatchford has written, … Continue reading . . . → Read More: bastard.logic: How Dare Jack Layton Make Canadians Feel Hopeful Again!

BigCityLib Strikes Back: And Barbara Kay Is A Bitch

 That is all.Ah, but not quite all: BK invokes “rules” for deciding who gets a state funeral, and says giving Jack one wouldn’t be according to Hoyle.  But its bullshit.  There aren’t any such rules.  Its all up to the PM. . . . → Read More: BigCityLib Strikes Back: And Barbara Kay Is A Bitch
