Oh Canada, where did freedom go?

I am as real as a transgender

Government bureaucrats and their totalitarian minions cannot resist oozing into every nook and cranny of family life. Canada’s Ontario province has passed legislation that allows the government to seize children from families that refuse to accept their child’s chosen “gender identity” or “gender expression. “The so-called Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, or Bill 89, requires child protection, foster, adoption service providers, and judges to take into account and respect a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”

The bill replaces the Child and Family Services Act, or Bill 28, which governs child protection, foster care and adoption services. Bill 28 stated that the parent of a child in care retains the right “to direct the child’s education and religious upbringing.” However, the new law amends it thus: “to direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.”

What exactly is “community identity?” Whatever it is–or isn’t–such a slippery concept apparently allows the serpent of totalitarian overreach to ooze into any relationship. In April, a Christian couple filed a lawsuit against Hamilton Children’s Aid Society for removing two foster children from their home because they refused to lie to the girls by saying that the Easter bunny is real. The eligibility of the Baars was canceled and the children were taken away. The CAS worker, who insisted that the Baars teach the kids that the Easter bunny is genuine, told them that the Easter bunny was an important part of Canadian culture. Huh? I see plenty of red maple leaves in Canadian culture but never an Easter bunny. And that word Easter, doesn’t that threaten Canadian culture?

Enter Wikipedia: Easter, also called Pascha or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD. It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance (for Roman Catholics anyway). So Easter itself is incompatible with present day totalitarian Canadian culture, but the bunny is okay. Sure, no problem.

While the original intent of Bill 89 was to prevent parents from being the adult in their children’s lives should the kids identify as something they aren’t, it shape-shifted into materializing the Easter bunny, so what’s next? Does anyone NOT see that the actual agenda is to exert bureaucratic, government, totalitarian control over every aspect of life? First Ontario, then Canada, then the world. LGBTQ was the leading edge of this intrusion. Transgenderism slithered into view, and was not repulsed, Bill 89 and it’s cousins in Scotland and Australia began coiling around the legs, and you’ll be surprised once you are having trouble breathing? Duh, something long and slithering is coiled around your chest. The time to blow the snake’s head up with a shotgun was when it’s head first appeared in the tent. Once it’s around your chest the shotgun is kind of risky.

A grandmother in Thailand had a terrifying moment when a different kind of snake, a python, slithered into her bedroom and bit her foot as she slept. Kaew Sudsopha, 75, from Bangkok, Thailand, was in bed when the deadly serpent slipped through pipework into her room in the early hours on Wednesday. CCTV installed by her son to monitor the pensioner shows the snake moving across the tiles, its eyes aglow as it sizes up its victim. Kaew said: ”I thought I was having a nightmare. There was a sharp pain in my foot and I woke up. I turned on the torch and noticed something moving on the floor. That’s when I saw the snake.” I included this vignette because it is good preparation for imagining the snake of totalitarianism that even now is greedily, eyes aglow, sizing you up. Will you fight or succumb?

If you’re going to be a jerkwad, at least be a citizen.

From National Review and NBC News: A Massachusetts woman who was arrested Tuesday after allegedly assaulting a man clad in a “Make America Great Again” hat is entering legal proceedings that may result in her deportation, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesman said Wednesday. Rosiane Santos, 41, is “an unlawfully present citizen of Brazil” who “entered into removal proceedings in federal immigration court” after being arrested in Falmouth, MA. Santos has pleaded not guilty to assault and battery and disorderly conduct and was released to await her court date. Santos was captured on video grabbing and trying to remove a MAGA hat being worn by a male patron at a Mexican restaurant in Falmouth, MA. on February 15. When police arrived, they witnessed Santos strike the man in the head. She then told the officers that the man should be not permitted to wear the hat in a Mexican establishment, according to the police report. “All I said was ‘I can wear this hat where ever I want this is America,’”, according to Bryton Turner, the man assaulted in Casa Vallarta. Court documents show when police asked Santos why she did it, she said it was because he supports President Donald Trump and she allegedly called Turner an expletive. Police said when Santos was arrested, her eyes were “bloodshot and glassy”. While walking her out of the bar, she allegedly hit Turner in the head.

I just love it when illegal aliens, er. “unlawfully present citizens” of another country so wholeheartedly embrace our values of tolerance and assimilation, or is it our values of outrage over manufactured sins like cultural appropriation. Well, technically it wasn’t cultural appropriation because the hat wasn’t a sombrero, though I’m not sure that would be worse than the hat he did wear. Sure, if you don’t like the message on someone’s hat, knock the hat off and hit him on the head, and then plead “not guilty” to what you did, even though it’s on video and according to police who were there. She’s a real genius all right. While allegedly (don’t you love that word) married to a U.S. citizen and awaiting results on her green card application, she assaults a guy just minding his own business, trying to enjoy a meal, because, according to her standards, “he should be not permitted to wear the hat in a Mexican establishment.” Give me an effin’ break already. I hope she is deported. Good riddance. Back to the favela with you. Like we don’t have enough domestic intolerant, self righteous aholes, we have to import them?

I can’t wait to see the usual suspects protesting deportation procedures, if it even gets that far. She will probably “discover” a child who can’t be separated from her by those evil ICE officers, who are really just Trump robots! Aren’t we tired of this kind of sh*t?
