I wrote Ezra Levant a few hours ago telling him that I was going to be apologizing in my blog tomorrow morning to him for calling his words about J. Lynch intemperate, after her latest foray to the Emerald Isle. I wondered why I got an almost immediate response from himself. Well, it was because he was busy gutting the Lynchmeister in his current edition of his blog. Since what he has to say covers in more detail what I have to say here, except for what I think is a cool nickname for herself, I largely consider this posting the Reader's Digest version of Ezra's Post here. But, accordingly, I have put mine here in the blogosphere Sunday evening rather than waited for Monday morning, just because. So, below is what I originally wrote.
Some time ago, Jennifer Lynch commented about debating Ezra and then ducked out. Bottom line, she has been caught in her commissions misdeeds and her own coverup of those misdeeds and is not going to go quietly. She spent some more of our tax dollars over the last few days to make a little trip to go and tell stories to the annual meeting of the Canadian Bar Association in Dublin, as reported here in the National Post.
So, while she got Janet Keeping of the Sheldon Chumir Foundation to support that Ezra speaks unkindly of her, garnering her about one tiny soupcon of sympathy maybe, but at least a tiny bit of distraction here, I confess that I put a toe on the bandwagon for a bit, thinking that Ezra might have been a bit intemperate calling her a damned liar, and an odious and execrable woman, as well as commenting on her appearance when he saw her in Ottawa one time recently.
I apologize to Ezra here for questioning his choice of words, and paraphrase Admiral Dewey at the beginning of the Spanish American War as his ship, the Olympia, sailed into Manila Bay: "You may fire when ready, Mr. Levant."
Ms. Lynch has now taken her stories abroad and propagated them in Dublin to the Canadian Bar Association, more as usual by omission, and by stretching the imagination with obfuscation, and using an obfuscator's best tools of Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD).
In the article in the National Post, the Queen of Censors told the Canadian Bar Association:
that rights commissions represent an important component of the justice system, giving society's "most vulnerable" minority groups access to a mechanism to deal with alleged rights violations.What a crock of crap that is. I would have believed that if I just fell off a turnip truck or if I had stopped at the name "Human Rights Commissions" and didn't dig any deeper into the case decisions, and news reports of the insanity that goes on with all the Canadian HRCs.
Except there might be a grain of truth in what she says. After all she is talking about alleged rights violations, and most of the case decisions I have read were of the alleged variety, as opposed to the real variety. The wackiest thing is, of course that the "most vulnerable" minority group in Canada is Caucasian's of which she is kind of an apparent member.
The article started with this stuff:
Canada's lawyers, academics and law school deans were urged here Saturday to come to the defence of federal, provincial and territorial human rights commissions and tribunals under attack by conservative critics.Ms. Lynch spoke of the "chill" created by opposition to her own brand of "chill" that Canadian people have tolerated for too many years. The criticisms are at times scary and troubling for her. Wow, that's tough. I certainly don't condone someone sending her a graphic anonymous letter stating that she should be shot dead. I don't wish that upon her, but her behaviour is sufficiently self serving that it would not surprise me to discover that she arranged for one of her minions to send the hate letter to her. Her band of merry men and women are not above that kind of "chill" on their own. Do you need to be reminded of their entrapment tactics on Stormfront?
Jennifer Lynch, head of the Canadian Human Rights Commission since 2007, told the Canadian Bar Association's annual meeting that opponents of rights bodies have successfully created a "chill" that makes it difficult for anyone to defend those bodies without also becoming a target.
Lynch, saying some criticisms have been "troubling" and "at times scary," also read out a graphic anonymous letter she received stating that she should be shot dead.
"I'm here to ask for your help," Lynch told CBA members, noting that academic experts, law school deans, and senior lawyers are among Canada's "most trusted sources of information" on public policy matters.
She urged them to write "letters to correct misinformation," encourage other experts to participate in the debate and promote public education of the role of rights commissions and tribunals in the justice system.
When she asks, nay urges lawyers to write "Letters to correct misinformation" yadda, yadda, yadda, above about the role of rights commissions, she really starts to sing a now familiar tune. In fact, it begets a new nickname for her, methinks. The music industry has J Lo, who regales us with many fine or not so fine tunes, but Ms Lynch seems to have only one tune, that the bloggers and the media are dispelling misinformation about her and her minions. So, I think we should call her J Ly.
Bloggers and media are reporting FACTS from ACTUAL TRANSCRIPTS of cases and DECISIONS. Where is the misinformation? J Ly is beyond salvaging as head of the Canadian HRC. She is an embarassment to her job and to our country, and the harder she tries to save her job, the more embarrassing she becomes to the government of the day. They need to shed themselves of her sooner than later, and then shed themselves of this albatross.
Don't shoot the messenger dead, as she or someone else said in the hate mail she received, but put the messenger and the message out of our misery.
