Hey, you know how Certain People make a habit of charging “white supremicists” with “hate speech” for the comments other people leave on their websites?
Well, hey, so the hell what??
The guy at the CBC “audience relations” who mocked and chastised me was Gus D’Orignal, so he said. He told me that hate speech has to be proven in court. He said that “just because [I] thought something on the CBC web site was hate doesn’t make it so.” (This is the “audience relations” contact….. pretty orwellian huh). He would not put me through to the CBC lawyers, who I was intending to ask if they could advise me prior to complaining the the CHRC [Canadian Human Rights Commission].
He mocked my breathing, and my intelligence, yawned at me and said “you can’t bully me”.
He was very quick to remind me that my contribution from taxes to the CBC was $32 and that I got my $32 dollars worth. He also asserted that his income taxes paid his salary, despite my assertion that it came out of my pocket in the first place. (I don’t get his logic.)… My government….. serving me…
I called his boss and left a brief message regarding the incident. No response yet.
Should Christians go so far as to launch their own Human Rights Complaints? Since they aren’t a ‘protected group’, that wouldn’t work anyway, and Mark Shea has other reasons:
I’m leery of Christians being over-eager to use the tactics of evil men to clog the system. Becoming a hyper-sensitive litigious freak in order to defeat hyper-sensitive litigious freaks is sub-optimal, it seems to me. It is not the Way of Christ. What is the way, I’m not sure. But let’s cross that bridge when we come to it.
