Speaking of Human Rights Commissions: it seems appropriate to recall, in this week of ghoulish anniversaries, that the one-time head of the Indianapolis Human Rights Commission was none other than… mass murdering Marxist Jim Jones.
Jim Jones started out as a highly vocal and effective anti-racist activist — and ended up killing more African-Americans in one day than the Arkansas KKK did in one hundred years.
Hmm. Pearl Eliadis, the “human rights” genius reduced to comparing me and Maclean’s to the Rwandan radio broadcasts before the Tutsi genocide, seems to have overlooked the far more explicit correlation between mass murder and prior employment at a human rights commission.
Look, I’m not saying that Jennifer Lynch or Barbara Hall are planning to start up Lynchtown or Halltown any time soon, and even if they do I’m not saying they’ll be ordering up vats of maple-flavored Kool-Aid, but to lapse into Lynch-speak:
“Why is this all important? Because human rights commissions are important. Lynch would have us believe that human rights commissions should be given free rein. History has shown us that human rights commissions lead to hurtful actions that undermine freedom and have led to unspeakable crimes. That is why Canada and other democracies need to enact legislation to place reasonable limits on human rights commissions.”
See how easy it is?
