Did Chrissie Blatchy Blatchford Just Liken Chief Theresa Spence to a Terrorist?

Tweet

Boys ‘n’ girls, it sure looks that way.

It is tempting to see the action as one of intimidation, if not terrorism: She is, after all, holding the state hostage to vaguely articulated demands.

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised though. I mean, her hatred of all folks and things Aboriginal is quite . . . → Read More: Did Chrissie Blatchy Blatchford Just Liken Chief Theresa Spence to a Terrorist?

The sexualized, infantilized coverage of Pussy Riot by western media

Tweet

by Igor Mukhin

Sarah Kendzior, in an article appearing in the Atlantic, points out the well-meaning but ultimately dismissive tone some western writers have adopted when writing about the women of Pussy Riot. The writer provides examples of this attitude, interesting enough from writers for the quasi-progressive blogs, Huffington Post and The New Republic.

Christie Blatchy Blatchford Misses John Wayne And Other Machismo–Plus Other Bonus Tracks

Tweet

Poor Chrissie, down time from hanging around the Shafia trial and sounding “honour killing” dog whistles is proving not to suit her too much. Her latest column in the Nasty post proves as much. I guess during down time for Chrissie, she can only write so many autobiographical columns about being a bitter . . . → Read More: Christie Blatchy Blatchford Misses John Wayne And Other Machismo–Plus Other Bonus Tracks

Chrissie Blatchford–Shoot the Nurses; Ask Questions, Later, Maybe, If it Suits My Agenda

Tweet

After reading Chrissie Blatchy’s latest scrawlings, just when I think she can’t get any nastier or more insane, she does!

 It’s why, where I used to think that before I got really old I’d get me a gun so I could shoot myself, I now wonder if I won’t instead turn the weapon . . . → Read More: Chrissie Blatchford–Shoot the Nurses; Ask Questions, Later, Maybe, If it Suits My Agenda

Chrissie Bitchford is At it Again!

Tweet

Man, what a bitter woman she is!! Is there no nasty she’ll stop at to suck up to a man in uniform?  This time, she’s after Lori Massicotte. You remember Ms Masicotte, that poor surviving victim of  ex-Col. Russell Williams who was left bound and naked for five hours by police?  Yep, ol’ . . . → Read More: Chrissie Bitchford is At it Again!

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

Tweet

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

Jonathan Kay defends Christie Blatchford’s indefensible column on Jack Layton

Tweet

Yesterday, Christie Blatchford wrote a column for the National Post full of back handed compliments to Jack Layton on the day of his death. Between the lines, however, lay a great streak of right-winged opportunism, attacking the man and his party for their beliefs and actions. Using terms like ‘vainglorious’ and ‘sophistry’, Blatchford . . . → Read More: Jonathan Kay defends Christie Blatchford’s indefensible column on Jack Layton

The right reacts to death of Jack Layton

Tweet

Stephen Taylor must be so proud.

“By the end of today’s news cycle… …there will be no part of his anatomy left unkissed… “

Small Dead Animals begins its discussion of Layton’s passing begging for civility from commenters. Commendable but the fact that it is even necessary is a sad commentary of its own.

Ok, Blatchey, thanks for sharing.  Boys ‘n’ girls in the Toronto area, if you go into a building and feel the need to put on a Hazmat suit due to strong odors or if you get sick, look no further than Blatchey.  She’s just warned us that she will cough in the air . . . → Read More: Social Graces Are Apparently Quite a Chore For Blathering Blatchford–As Is Germ Control

Blatchford smacks Fantino? Cue schadenfreude chorus

Tweet

Oh, dear. The queen of unthinking gut reaction says Julian wasn’t there for the little guy at Caledonia.

I wonder if he’ll have some lucky flunky write a wounded, indignant letter to the editor for a change? I wonder if there’ll be a segment about it on Coach’s Corner?

Oh – sorry. Yes please, . . . → Read More: Blatchford smacks Fantino? Cue schadenfreude chorus

Protesting and outrage. Where we juxtapose. CC edition. UPDATED

Tweet

CC tweeted this little gem from a rightblogger. You know, those people who are so outraged (read the comments) over the protesters at Blatchford and Coulter speeches (even though the numbers of protesters were tiny). Talk about hypocritical oaths!

Shades of Ann Coulter? Christie Blatchford cancels University of Waterloo speech.

Tweet

The right is screaming ‘censorship’. Details so far have been sketchy but Christie Blatchford was forced to cancel her speaking engagement at University of Waterloo after students occupied the stage. Not much in way of hard news right now except for some rightweeters who are blowing several gaskets. Why the organizers, the publisher or the . . . → Read More: Shades of Ann Coulter?

Who cares indeed, Rex Murphy

Rex Murphy knows his role is to entertain his Conservative troops. It hasn’t been going that well lately for his boys. He puts on a brave face. “Who cares” if Canada was embarrassed the world over by its ass kicking at the UN? The UN? Sissy boy do gooders.

Because you and many of your compatriots in the corporate media sure ain’t doin’ it.

Clucking Christie Blathering Blatchford Strikes Again!

Tweet

Oh brother! Here we go again! Once again that useless old shrew hacks again.  This time, it’s about her little friend Rahim Jaffer. Apparently she writes that we’re simply pissed off with him getting away  with nothing more than a slap on the wrists simply because he’s a ReformaTory: that backroom deals like . . . → Read More: Clucking Christie Blathering Blatchford Strikes Again!
