#NEVERTRUMPERS... a continuing series

The 27-year-old formerly known as Patrick Abbatiello, now legally designated agender, also got legal approval to change names, now going only by “Patch,” no surname. That name also serves as a pronoun, Patch explained to the local NBC affiliate this week.

“Even gender-neutral pronouns don’t feel as if they fit me,” Patch said. “I feel no identity or closeness with any pronouns I’ve come across. What describes me is my name.”
Yes, Patchy-poo... you're a beautiful butterfly.

BONUS ROUND: Trump has to go... right?
A Black Lives Matter activist, who also claims to be a pre-school teacher, gave a fiery speech at an anti-Trump rally in Seattle. “We need to start killing people.” The unidentified woman also had choice words to say about white people and reparations.

“White people, give your fucking money, your fucking house, your fucking property, give it fucking all,” she said during Sunday’s protest. “You need to reparate[sic] black and indigenous people right now.”
Sweeeeet baby jebus.

UPDATE: Justin kills free speech

Rex Murphy weighs in...
Why not a motion, as some have suggested, speaking out against prejudice against all religions? There is also concern that the motion will, in some manner, chill valid criticism of Islamist terror, or will not make allowance for legitimate criticism or analysis of Islam. Such criticism would now be forced to wear the degrading mantle of Islamophobia.


Goodbye...

...and good riddance...

The death of free speech in Canada

Witness Pierre-lite's own iteration of the "War Measures Act"...

Motion M103 was tabled by Iqra Khalid, a Muslim member of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party. It states the government must “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination”, was taken to vote on Thursday evening where a total of 201 MPs voted for it and only 91 voted against.
Of course, condemnation of intolerance is decidedly a one-way street in Lib-Lib Land...
"On the one-year anniversary of a brazen Ottawa shooting that claimed the life of a 24-year-old Canadian soldier, Justin Trudeau avoided mention of the word terrorism."

UPDATE: Sounds Islamophobic to me...
Taxi drivers are swapping debit cards when passing the terminal to customers paying their fare, Toronto police warn.

“Upon paying, if they’ve opted to pay with a debit card, at some point during that transaction from the point of sale, the taxi operator has been able to manipulate and swap the debit card and obtain the customer’s PIN number.

Police arrested a man, identified as 39-year-old Mohamed R., who has been living in France.
As French as fallafel.

Five people, including a London police officer who was stabbed and the alleged assailant, were killed in a terror attack that saw more 40 people injured outside the Parliament building on Wednesday in an act described as "sick and depraved" by British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Acting Metropolian Police Deputy Commissioner and Head of Counter Terrorism Mark Rowley said there was only one attacker who authorities believe was "inspired by international terrorism."

..."Will of Buddha, er... Shiva, wait... Odin, no... uh, Jesus... wait a minute..."

A convicted criminal with links to radical Islam sent a text message to his brother and father stating 'I shot the police', shortly before he was shot dead during an attack at Paris Orly airport.

The 39-year-old, named locally as career criminal Ziyed Ben Belgacem, was killed after wrestling a soldier's gun from her and fleeing into a McDonald's.

Less than two hours earlier he had shot a female police officer in the head in a northern Paris suburb after being stopped for speeding.

The Canadian military has tried previously to change or alter some of its equipment for women. In 1997 it earmarked more than $2 million for creating what it believed would be the world’s first combat bra. The project was eventually abandoned.

The action plan focuses on Designated Group Members, which the Canadian Forces defines as women, Indigenous people, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities. Also included in the strategy is the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Queer, Questioning and 2-Spirited) community.
I myself am looking forward to Canada's first 2-Spirited, paraplegic Wiccan jet fighter pilot... even if she doesn't have a fully functioning "combat bra."

Forget about gloves, batons, tasers...

...perhaps they can just go back to shooting folks who resist arrest...insert alt text here

Under the weight of a set of watchdog charges against an Ottawa officer wearing Oakley gloves with hardened knuckles, the chief of police has ordered an audit of all force-approved glove purchases for officers.
How much money would you have to make to square off against thugs and crazy people on a regular basis? If part of my job was getting into no-rules street brawls, I'd be protecting my hands as well.

Note that the officers in question were responding to a man grabbing women's breasts in a crowded public venue. After citizens called 911, this guy fled the scene and then resisted arrest when police caught up to him.

Sure, Bobby... I anticipate a rash of gory executions as teens lift a pair of Raybans from unlocked pickups. It's what all of us privileged old white guys do.

Shame on the CBC for their constant fear-mongering.

UPDATE: Ask a Public Safety Minister...
Canada’s public safety minister is backing Saskatchewan’s justice minister, who spoke out against a resolution passed this week by the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) that argues for relaxed self-defence laws.
