1. ‘Far left wing extremists’ (actually not all of them are but some for sure) held a demonstration encouraging Canada to implement a carbon tax to help defeat ‘anthropogenic global warming’. Of course one suspects what they really want is another vector with which to attack and deconstruct Western classical civilization; what the far left wing extremists call, ‘capitalism’. This is a couple of minutes of the footage sent to us by Victor Laszlo this morning from the protest.
I think the first point made in the video may take a little thought as it is so deeply engrained in the culture., The stunning double standard of the left where their use of racist stereotypes is acceptable and noble while even the projected use by non-far left wing extremists is racist and must be shut down, even if totally imaginary, may require some thought. But I tried to make the point as well as possible at the start of the video anwyay.
The main thing is, this demo was 100% an appeal to emotion, even using religion as copiously as possible and not one scientific argument was made whatsoever.

Dorais, deputy minister of immigration and citizenship from 1998 to 2004, was appointed to be the city’s official co-ordinator for the effort to welcome Syrian refugees Wednesday. The appointment was made during the closed-door portion of the executive committee meeting, but the details of the hiring were made public to councillors shortly afterwards.
Coderre served as immigration minister as part of the Liberal government from 2002 to 2003.
Refugees sheltering in Malmö’s 2013 Eurovision venue are begging to leave, with one describing it as a “prison” with “inhuman conditions”, while Swedish nurses working there have been pulled out because of the health risks.Basim Salim, 40, who has fled Iraq with his three daughters, told Sweden’s Aftonbladet newspaper that conditions at the Malmömässan conference hall had become “completely inhuman”.“Please help us here. We have been here for three nights and can not take any more,” he said. “Some people have been here for five nights. This is not a good place for children, it really isn’t. Everyone here is angry and wants to get out. It is like a prison.”A policeman from Stockholm sent to help keep order at the hall wrote on Facebook that he himself had had trouble breathing inside the centre, where nearly 1,000 refugees have been crammed over the past two weeks.“It stings and itches in your eyes and nose,” the policeman wrote on Facebook, according to Expressen newspaper. “The health services have withdrawn the two nurses they had there because it is not a suitable workplace.”The policeman wrote that children, many of them with high fevers, were forced to sleep on pieces of cardboard deposited on the concrete floors.“All those poor children. I was stepping over children’s legs and arms, all sticking out under the sheets where they lay cheek by jowl in a row, sleeping on bits of cardboard laid out on the concrete floors,” he wrote.
Israel has said it is suspending contact with EU officials involved in peace efforts with the Palestinians.
The move follows the bloc’s decision to label goods from Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “ordered suspension of diplomatic contacts with the institutions of the European Union on this issue”, a foreign ministry statement said.
The EU says the settlements are illegal, but Israel disputes this.
Mr Netanyahu, who is also the foreign minister, told the ministry to carry out “a reassessment of the involvement of EU bodies in everything that is connected to the diplomatic process with the Palestinians”, the statement said.
Just over two weeks ago the European Commission issued new guidelines for the labelling of some products made in Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian and Syrian land.
