  • Now you're bringing up Trudeau? He's about as relevant to the discussion of you defending someone I consider to be indefensible as the length of your marriage. And I'm the one in a "strange place"?

    OK Boomer.

        You're absolutely right. I should have no interest in debating with bigots and/or their defenders. My bad.

            not to worry, i’ve been called worse things by better people who were also wrong (which is usually what’s really bothering them).

            • Never thought you were a bigot Ken and far from it...
              The thin air seems to be pervading C2E quite often of late. No wonder most of the birds flew south for the winter and not seen around here anymore.

              • I spoke out against what I found to be offensive about Blatchford. kcantor decided he had to pop in and defend her. And somehow being offended by someone defending admitted rapists (although the judge still felt that it was a "he said, she said" situation even though Retayah was dead) make me too tough on Blatchford.

                  Truth be told, how often have you gone to a funeral and during the eulogy, the speaker extols all the departed's vices and worst traits???

                  • Calling people bigots and racists is the term the PC crowd give to anyone that disagree with them on any topic discussed.

                      Hot tip: If you try to say two words are equivalent in offensiveness but can't/won't write only one out fully you're completely wrong.

                        What am I wrong about? That Blatchford herself was a bigot? That's a matter of public record. She's come out explicitly against tolerance, which is pretty much Bigotry 101.

                        Non-bigots don't generally advocate for bigotry or defend bigots.

                            I read that article today. Everyone should read it to inform themselves what a horrible human being Blatchford was.
                            Journalists and prominent politicians were also called out for mourning her death with sugar-coating.

                              I'm glad she lived long enough to get the recognition she deserved. Hidden Figures is a great book and a great movie. And her many awards and recognitions were well deserved.
