The National Post is showing it’s true colours in allowing US Tea bagger Mark Steyn unfettered access to its front page on-line. This malcontent and ne’er-do-well is never happy unless he is ranting about the horror of the forthcoming apocalypse that only he can see coming, and save us from – unless it’s climate change that is, because he is smarter than all the world’s scientists and knows otherwise.
The 130 killed in Paris are all the fault of Obama, Trudeau etc where-as the similar number killed in Beirut and Baghdad had nothing to do with the illegal US wars of aggression he cheerleaded. Ditto with the creation of IS and the hundreds of thousands dead in Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan etc nothing to do with folk like Steyn and their relentless war mongering hey? In true Sturmer fashion Steyn rants
Most of those people don’t want to participate actively in bringing about the death of diners and concertgoers and soccer fans, but at a certain level most of them either wish or are indifferent to the death of the societies in which they live — modern, pluralist, western societies and those “universal values” of which Barack Obama bleats.
Shorter Steyn – I do understand that the vast majority of them are not bad people or terrorists, but those that aren’t still seek to dilute my precious bodily fluids through their differences – so they all must be treated as though they are guilty.
So I say again: What’s the happy ending here?
So when they are all dead, the European oak will again flourish hey Mark? Just like it did under Leopold in the Congo hey?
Steyn is a classic mouthpiece of the far right – talks a good fight but finds the nearest closet to hide in when push comes to shove. He’ll ask questions and demand the sacrifice of others, but he, like that other paragon of the fighting Chairborne Huw Hewitt, will play their part from the front lines in New York.
Apart from the classic definition of “Yellow Journalism,” which describes how the NP has shaped itself recently very accurately; the NP now indulges in another form of Yellow behaviour – it refuses to allow people to post comments. Their choice of course, but that tactic fits in with the all-around cowardice one has come to expect from the modern right wing these days.
The National Post has become very bitter since the guy who they endorsed, was overwhelmingly rejected by decent Canadians in the recent federal election. But to hand over its pages to totalitarian cowards, anti-intellectuals and rabble rousers for them to rant on without reply, beggars belief.
Yellow “Hate” Journalism like this is why the NP is failing. I hope the death throes aren’t long and protracted. Oh and Steyn, here’s the place you need to go if you really want to put your money where your mouth is, or here or even here. So I guess there are no excuses now, you two bob bit.
