Another Example Of Canadian Reverse Racism

Attached below is an article I read yesterday that really sent me off the deep end. The fact that this type of blatant discrimination exists in my country is disgusting. And the people on Toronto city council should be ashamed of themselves for being such blatant vote-whores that they can’t bring themselves to fight this kind of injustice.

At this point, I’m pretty much of the opinion that multiculturalism is a retarded idea. Diversity I have no problem with. I think we should all learn to live together. But this bullshit notion that we need to let people isolate themselves into these little detached enclaves because they hate the culture that was already here when they landed, or can’t be bothered to learn the language, is ignorance of the worst kind.

Enjoy. And make sure to send city councillors some brutal hate mail.

Disabled man told subsidized housing is for Muslims only

City subsidizes 10 affordable housing buildings that only take residents from a certain ethnic, religious or cultural group.

By: Staff Reporter,Published on Wed Aug 26 2015

A young wheelchair user has been taken off the waiting list for a publicly subsidized apartment because he is not a member of the Muslim community that established the building — a practice that, while legal, raises concerns that accommodations for cultural and religious groups could be limiting access to affordable housing.

According to a letter that arrived at his mother’s house last week, Austin Lewis, 21, was removed from the waiting list at the Ahmadiyya Abode of Peace building on Finch Ave. W in North York because he is not a member of their faith.

“It was mostly confusing, more than anything else,” he said. “Why would a government segregate its own building?”

The 16-storey building, which provides a range of services to its residents including a prayer room that accommodates 250, was actually approved in the 1990s as part of a provincial program to encourage non-profits and religious groups to build affordable housing, according to its property manager.

Lewis, who has used a wheelchair since a disease attacked his spinal cord when he was 8, says he applied to more than 100 accessible buildings in Toronto, Brampton and Peel Region, and there was no notice that any of them were restricted to a certain community.

“We had no idea. The letter came as a complete shock,” he said.

The city provides a $1.7-million subsidy for 94 rent-geared-to-income units under a five-year agreement, which began Jan. 1, that restricts tenants to “members of the Muslim Jama’at.”

“The City’s mandate policy allows social housing providers to restrict their housing to individuals belonging to an identifiable ethnic or religious group if specific conditions are met,” says a statement provided by city spokesperson John Gosgnach.

There are eight such buildings in Toronto, catering to Muslims, Macedonians, Germans and seniors who are Christian, Chinese, Greek, Hungarian or Lithuanian.

Karin Tahir, Ahmadiyya Abode of Peace’s property manager, said the building does not discriminate on race, colour or ethnicity. “Ahmadiyya is in 200 countries,” he said.

“We’re not bumping anyone off the list,” Tahir added. “The real issue is the 90,000-person waiting list for an affordable unit. Where is the new stock?”

It’s already hard enough to find affordable housing in the GTA, Lewis says, but when you’re in a wheelchair, your options are limitedeven further.

“It does seem incredibly odd. There is housing for people 50 and over, but there is no housing specifically for people in chairs,” he said.

His mother, Laura Whiteway, is incensed that her son could be turned away from a wheelchair-accessible building.

“They’re being given a licence to discriminate. It’s just wrong,” she said.

Lawyer Barry Swadron, who has extensive experience in disability law, says the Ontario Human Rights Code allows for this kind of discrimination.

“Here you have a building for Muslims, and normally that would be discriminatory because other religions could not be accommodated there.

“But the Human Rights Code says if it’s a special-interests organization — religious, philanthropic, educational or social — they can discriminate in that way,” he said. “It’s very unfortunate, but that’s how the law was written.”

While the intention was to create safe spaces for minority communities, this kind of permissible “positive discrimination” inevitably produces collateral damage, Swadron said.

“(Lewis) is an unintended casualty of the system,” Swadron said. “The hope is that he can find other accommodation.”

While he is currently enrolled in an 18-month program to learn independent living skills, Lewis knows he will need a new place to live next year, and despite all his applications, he now wonders how many have him still in the running.

“This one place sent me a letter, but how many other places haven’t?” he said.

Asshead Of The Day 09/26/2014 – Richard Smoke

I unfortunately do not have, and have been unable to find, a picture of this particular fucktard.

However, from what I can remember, if you picture in your mind the stereotypical unkempt, social rebel, half drunk native Canadian, that should be enough for you to go on.

I do not say this to be intentionally derogatory, I am simply painting a picture so the rest of this will make sense.

You will remember the case of Mr Sam Gualtieri, the man permanently brain damaged in a pointless attack by Richard Smoke. The man was working on a home, a wedding gift to his daughter, when he was attacked by this waste of welfare, in a manner the judge called ‘just short of culpable homicide.’

Every time I think of this it sickens me. What kind of world do we live in that a jobless, illiterate asshat like this can attack, and almost kill, a contributing member of society, a father, a husband, and get away with it. And get away with it he did, as a sentance of 2 years is nothing for having done this.

samgualtieri-sm

It just goes to prove that the justice system in Canada is something indians seem to think doesn’t apply to them, and this asshole judge, most likely under pressure from a spineless Liberal government, confirmed it for them.

I can only hope that Richard Smoke is a very bad man’s bitch in prison, and that those two years of his life scar him as deeply and permanently as he did to Mr Gualtieri.

Fuck you Richard. You are a drain on society both in and out of prison, and you deserve every minute of unlubricated ass-spelunking you endure on the inside.

Pope Benedict ‘Complicit In Child Sex Abuse Scandals’, Say Victims’ Groups

A great article from The Guardian
Pope Benedict XVI ‘knew more about clergy sex crimes than anyone else in church yet did little to protect children’, say critics

For the legions of people whose childhoods and adult lives were wrecked by sexual and physical abuse at the hands of the Roman Catholic clergy, Pope Benedict XVI is an unloved pontiff who will not be missed.

Victims of the epidemic of sex- and child-abuse scandals that erupted under Benedict’s papacy reacted bitterly to his resignation, either charging the outgoing pontiff with being directly complicit in a criminal conspiracy to cover up the thousands of paedophilia cases that have come to light over the past three years, or with failing to stand up to reactionary elements in the church resolved to keep the scandals under wraps.

From Benedict’s native Germany to the USA, abuse victims and campaigners criticised an eight-year papacy that struggled to cope with the flood of disclosures of crimes and abuse rampant for decades within the church. Norbert Denef, of the NetworkB group of German abuse victims, said: “The rule of law is more important than a new pope.”

Denef, 64, from the Baltic coast of north Germany, was abused as a boy by his local priest for six years. In 2003, Denef took his case to the bishop of Magdeburg. He was offered €25,000 (then £17,000) in return for a signed pledge of silence about what he suffered as a six-year-old boy. He then raised the issue with the Vatican and received a letter that said Pope John Paul II would pray for him so that Denef could forgive his molester.

“We won’t miss this pope,” said Denef. He likened the Vatican’s treatment of the molestation disclosures to “mafia-style organised crime rings”.

That view was echoed by David Clohessy in the US, executive director of SNAP (Survivors’ Network of those Abused by Priests), an organisation with 12,000 members: “His record is terrible. Before he became pope, his predecessor put him in charge of the abuse crisis.

“He has read thousands of pages of reports of the abuse cases from across the world. He knows more about clergy sex crimes and cover-ups than anyone else in the church yet he has done precious little to protect children.”

Jakob Purkarthofer, of Austria‘s Platform for Victims of Church Violence, said: “Ratzinger was part of the system and co-responsible for these crimes.”

 Under the German pope, his native country, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Austria were rocked by clerical sex-abuse scandals, triggering revulsion at the clergy in Europe just when Benedict saw his mission as leading a Catholic revival on a secular continent.

Before becoming pope, there were also major scandals in the US and Ireland at a time when Pope John Paul II had put the then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger in charge of dealing with them.

A combination of deep rancour and disgust over the crimes and disaffection with the conservative ethics of the Catholic hierarchy has nudged the church in Austria towards schism, with rebel priests leading an anti-Vatican movement of hundreds of thousands, dubbed We Are The Church.

“He should have come clean about the abuses, but was not really able to change anything fundamentally,” said Purkarthofer. “The resignation is a chance for real change, perhaps the best thing he could have done for the church.”

While also intensely critical, some Irish victims of the seminaries, convent schools, and church-run orphanages gave the pope the benefit of the doubt, but lamented that not enough action had followed Benedict’s expressions of remorse in the spring of 2010.

“When the pope issued his pastoral letter to the people of Ireland we welcomed it,” said one Irish campaigner. “Because of the sincerity of the words in that letter from the pope in the name of the church. He said he was ‘truly sorry’ and accepted that our ‘dignity had been violated’.

“So we went on to meet the group of bishops in Ireland thinking that this would be a new era. But what we got instead were pastoral platitudes and special masses offered up.”

The fallout from these scandals continues to reverberate. Next Monday campaigners for justice are to protest in the ancient west German city of Trier when the country’s church leadership gathers. Last month a church-sponsored inquiry into the abuses collapsed in disarray amid recrimination between the clergy and outside criminologists involved in the examination.

A similar situation persists in Austria, where a church-led inquiry into the abuse and compensation has degenerated, in the view of activists, into a smokescreen. In Belgium, where the head of the church nationally had to resign and then made matters worse by going on television to plead innocence while admitting “intimacy” by having boys in his bed, there are parallel frustrations with the partial nature of the church’s openness.

A couple of years ago US activists sought to file a criminal suit against the Vatican at the international war crimes tribunal in The Hague, while victims’ associations responded to the current drama by demanding an international commission be set up to examine Catholic paedophilia, independent of the church.i

Clohessy said a big question for Benedict’s successor is “what he will do in a very tangible way to safeguard children, deter cover-ups, punish enablers and chart a new course.

“There are 30 bishops in the US [who] have posted on the diocese websites the names of predator priests. The pope should require bishops to do that and to work with secular lawmakers to reform archaic sex abuse laws so that predators from every walk of life face justice.”

John Kelly, one founder of Ireland’s Survivors of Child Abuse group and a former inmate at Dublin’s notorious Artane Industrial School, which was run by the Christian Brothers, said Benedict had resisted their demands to properly investigate and disband religious orders tainted by sexual and physical abuse.

“In our view, we were let down in terms of promises of inquiries, reform and most importantly of all the Vatican continuing not to acknowledge that any priest or religious bodies found guilty of child abuse would face the civil authorities and be tried for their crimes in the courts.

“I’m afraid to say Pope Benedict won’t be missed as the Vatican continued to block proper investigations into the abuse scandals during his term in office. Nor are we confident that things are going to be different because of all the conservative Cardinals he appointed. For us, he broke his word.”

The Austrian campaigner called for church files on paedophilia to be opened and generous compensation for the victims.

Denef pointed to the discrepancies between the response in the US and in Europe, insisting that clergy suspects must be brought before the law.

“From our point of view, Ratzinger did nothing to support the victims. Instead, perpetrators and serial perpetrators were protected and moved to new jobs,” he said.

“Victims in the US have been compensated sometimes with more than a million dollars and the personal files of the perpetrators were put on the internet. But the victims of sexual violence by the clergy in Germany had to settle for a few thousand euros, often conditional on pledges of silence and no more claims.

“We demand from German politicians that this concern [the church] is no longer beyond the rule of law. That’s more important than waiting to see whether a new pope will be more reactionary than the old one.”

• This article was amended on 13 February 2013 because the original attributed quotes from Norbert Denef, of NetworkB, to Matthias Katsch. Katsch is not a member of NetworkB. The original has also been amended to correct the description of NetworkB. It is not a “group of German clerical-abuse victims” as the original said, but a group of German abuse victims.

Apparently Laws Do Not Apply To Canadian Indians

This is an older news article from The National Post, but I republish it here because it pisses me off so very badly.

CAYUGA, Ont. — For beating a non-native builder to within an inch of his life during the fiery native occupation in nearby Caledonia, a young aboriginal man was sentenced to less than two years in jail, plus time served – a punishment that leaves the victim’s family demanding an inquiry into how the courts treat First Nations offenders.

Ontario Superior Court Judge Alan Whitten cited Friday the sad legacy of residential schools and the disproportionately large population of incarcerated aboriginal offenders as reasons why he did not give Richard Smoke a harsher sentence for an attack he described as “senseless and vicious” and “just a notch below culpable homicide.”

The reduced sentence for such a brutal attack – with a stick of lumber on a defenceless man that rendered builder Sam Gualtieri, 56, brain damaged – outraged the Gualtieri family.

“We’re extremely disappointed. His sentence is so short in comparison to the damage from the attack. My brother’s sentence is for a lifetime,” said Joe Gualtieri, Mr. Gualtieri’s brother.

“Being aboriginal should have some consideration but it seems that it was all the consideration. Now this stage is over, we are going to be looking for answers. If the judge can’t send a message to the community then we’ll have to look for some other way.”

Crown attorney Alex Paparella had asked for a penitentiary term of six to eight years for the aggravated assault and break and enter charges against Smoke, from the Six Nations reserve.

But Smoke’s lawyer, Sarah Dover, said her client had been profoundly affected by a culture of racism and urged Judge Whitten to heavily weigh the “aboriginal perspective” as a mitigating factor leading to a “below par” sentence.

Smoke was damaged by the “intergenerational impacts” of the residential school system, through which both sides of his family passed, she said. The attack should be viewed “against the backdrop of discord between the Canadian government and aboriginal people.”

Judge Whitten listened patiently to arguments as what was to have been a one-day plea and sentencing dragged on over three days.

He acknowledged the special circumstances of aboriginal sentencing but also the need for a public denunciation.

“Sentencing requires a balance of societal interests and the personal circumstances of an accused. There is no one-size-fits-all approach,” Judge Whitten said Friday before passing sentence.

He had harsh words for Smoke.

“It is a very serious and grave offence. We are all fortunate that it was not worse,” he said, saying Smoke had beaten Mr. Gualtieri on the head with a stick of lumber, gripped in both hands, and was winding up, “as if in mid-swing,” when stopped by others.

Medical notes say Mr. Gualtieri was “almost killed.”

“Mr. Gualtieri will live life as a brain damaged man,” said Judge Whitten.

Although noting the special needs of aboriginal offenders, as he is required to do after the 1999 Supreme Court ruling in R. v. Gladue, he said the Gladue declaration was not a “get-out-of-jail-free card.”

Nor, said Judge Whitten, was this attack part of the wider native land claim: “There was no necessity for this crime… it didn’t advance any ideology or idea.”

Although the Sept. 13, 2007, beating of Mr. Gualtieri stemmed from the violent occupation it was not a direct part of it, court heard earlier.

Caledonia became the focus of national attention in 2006 when native protesters occupied Douglas Creek Estates, a large residential subdivision under construction, as part of an ongoing land dispute.

Smoke lived full-time at Douglas Creek Estates, an area described in civil proceedings as a “lawless oasis.” As violence ebbed and flowed, a spillover demonstration a year later engulfed the nearby Stirling Wood residential development, where Mr. Gualtieri was building a house for his daughter.

Mr. Gualtieri arrived at the house with three men from his work crew to check on it after news spread of renewed trouble. They saw shadows moving inside and Mr. Gualtieri rushed to evict the intruders.

By the time the rest of the crew got inside, Smoke was standing with a 2×4 over Mr. Gualtieri, as the builder lay bloody and battered on the floor. One of the men described the disturbing whacking sound of wood hitting flesh.

Mr. Gualtieri suffered broken bones, cuts and a brain injury.

His memory is shaky, balance unsteady, speech slow and reading ability impaired. His ears constantly ring and noise bothers him intensely; he has been unable to work in construction since.

Judge Whitten chastised Smoke for displaying “pride” in the attack by afterward calling out at an onlooker: “Do you want to end up like your buddy inside?”

He gave Smoke a two-year and 11-month sentence, reduced by the equivalent of 11 ½ months of pre-trial custody. That makes his final sentence less than two years, meaning he will serve his time in a provincial jail rather than a federal prison, followed by three years of probation during which he is banned from entering the occupied Douglas Creek property.

Afterward, Mr. Gualtieri said the judge was too lenient.

“I am totally disappointed. I was expecting him to get four years – and that would have been giving the guy a break. I feel like I have been injured again.”

Crazy Latvian Has WAY Too Much Plastic In Her

Now far be it for me to complain about large breasts, but this whole plastic surgery fad has gone too far. If you ask me, this woman was way hotter BEFORE all the augmentation. But judge for yourself.

Being a model wasn’t enough for Victoria Wild. She wanted to be a real-life sex doll.

To that end, Wild, 30, has spent the last five years getting surgical enhancements on her lips, hips and all points in between to make herself into a Barbie doll with huge bazooms.

It’s a dream she had since she was growing up in a small village in Latvia.

“I had a very normal childhood, living in a small village in the countryside. I was very slim and blonde and people would call me Barbie. But I hated my small A cup boobs. I didn’t like myself or the way I looked. I had an inferiority complex,” she said, according to the Daily Mail. “I didn’t know about plastic surgery at that age but I would always dream about resembling a sexy bimbo doll with huge breasts and insanely big lips.”

“I loved the way dolls looked and how sexy they were. They are so bright and bold. It was this fantasy in my head,” she said

Fantasy started becoming reality when she was 25 and met her boyfriend, an Italian businessman named Simon. He encouraged her dream of becoming a real-life sex doll and helped her fund $50,000 worth of cosmetic surgery.

With his help, along with money Wild earned modeling, she’s been able to afford permanent lip implants, botox, buttock implants, a nose job and three rounds of breast surgery to increase her bust size to a ginormous 32G.

Wild, who now lives in Cannes, France, is wild about the way she looks and so is her beau.

“Simon loves my sex doll look. I’m a bombshell now. People look at me in the street and men absolutely adore me. Simon’s so proud of the attention I get,” she said, according to the Metro. “I get more glamour model work because how I look too. I would love to become famous for being a sex doll.

Officer Bubbles

I’m sure by now everyone has seen footage of the atrocities perpetrated upon the public by the police during the G20 in Toronto.

Our society has apparently devolved to the point where we have chose to employ the dumbest among us as police, and if you disagree with that statement, the video below will certainly change your mind.

And on a side note this fucktard apparently still has a job, so if you see him tooling around Toronto be sure to call him Officer Bubbles. He fucking hates that.

However. I’m not a little girl. And he found it substantially harder to bully me.

This is for you Officer Bubbles.

You fuckwit.
