Calgary celebrates White Pride Day

Hundreds of angry anti-racist protesters were held back by Calgary police yesterday as they tried to scuffle with a small group of neo-nazis, racists who somehow think the colour of their skin, is worth celebrating. The nazis were celebrating white pride day.

The hundreds of angry anti-racists were celebrating the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination which has been observed annually on 21st of March, since 1960.
On March 21st 1960, South African police opened fire and killed 69 people at a peaceful demonstration in Sharpeville, South Africa, who were marching against the apartheid pass laws. The UN General Assembly proclaimed March 21st The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and called on the international community to redouble its efforts to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination (resolution 2142 (XXI)).
You might of thought that the city of Calgary would have postponed issuing a parade permit to a small group of white racists celebrating WPD since their day of hate was only started in 2000 by a small group white Australian racists, while they were sitting around the barbie.

But hey, it is Calgary.

Edmonton on the other hand is continuing the anti-racist campaign through to next weekend.
The Northern Alberta Alliance on Race Relations will be holding a day-long workshop next weekend to explore racism-related issues. The workshop will help people understand what racism is, its causes, how it manifests, and solutions to eliminate it.
Maybe they can invite the mayor of Calgary and his municipal officials, who hand out parade permits.

Stephen Harper, Jason Kenney and Pierre Poilievre are all from Calgary. Jim Prentice also is from there.

Is it something in the water or what?
I have drunk from the Glenmore Reservoir my entire life. And I despise the Reformers and all the small mindedness they stand for. We will have to look for a deeper reason than that. I think it is at least partly because they all seem like a bunch of weenies who don't get out doors enough. It is hard to see how people could be filled with such hate when they are in such a beautiful place.

BTW, is PP really from C-Town? It is bad enough we have sent all that other rubbish to Ottawa.

PizzaGate explained

Never heard Bernie speak until after the US election, saw the debates and thought Hillary cleaned Trump's clock. Knew Trump was a prick and couldn't understand how any sane person would vote for him, yet for some reason, I called myself a Bernie guy, didn't trust Hillary and had no idea why.

But, at least I didn't take my gun to a pizza joint to break up a pedophilia ring in the basement and end up getting four years in prison, like Ed Welch from North Carolina.

RollingStone in partnership with the Investigative Fund and the Centre for Investigative Reporting along with five other journalists tracked down the origins and methodologies used to propagate the most successful fake news story of the past election,

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
