Naomi Klein wants Canada to be like Venezuela...

Kelly McParland: NDP ponders adopting Naomi Klein’s great LEAP forward

Quote:
Naomi Klein has long been a fan of the Bolivarian revolution in Venezuela, launched by Hugo Chavez, a man she similarly admired.

Klein championed Chavez’s use of Venezuela’s oil wealth to support a populist agenda that won him ongoing popularity from the country’s workers. She was appalled when business interests sought to oust him. She attacked “the commercial media’s” criticism of him and added her name to a letter of support ahead of a recall referendum, noting “you are investing your country’s vast oil wealth in ways that benefit everyone, not just small minority of well-connected elites.” In her recent book, This Changes Everything,” she argues that “only mass social movements can save us.” Mass social movements like Venezuela’s.

Today Venezuela’s economy is among the most decrepit on the planet. Having raided the oil fund while neglecting production, it can no longer keep even toilet paper in supply.
Yes, please...

(cross-posted in the Alberta NDP thread)

So, with rather bizarre social experiments being foisted upon the unsuspecting populace by Progressive governments, it's always revealing to examine how said experiments have fared elsewhere.

Hey, Seattle! How's that $15 minimum wage working out for ya?

Well, in a nutshell:

Quote:
The American Enterprise Institute blog reveals the not very surprising news that 10 months into Seattle's radical experiment of boosting the minimum wage to $15 an hour over a period of years, the city has suffered the worst job losses since the Great Recession.
M'bold.

More:

Quote:
The chart below shows that while the city of Seattle experienced a sharp drop in employment of more than 11,000 jobs between April and December last year (light blue line, BLS data available here), employment in Seattle’s neighboring suburbs outside the city limits (the Seattle MSA jobs less Seattle city jobs) increased over that period by nearly 57,000 jobs and reached a new record high in November 2015 before falling slightly in December.
M'bold.
Please, Rachel, could you make it $20/hr? Pretty please, with Progressive sugar on top?

HURT FEELINGS AND FEAR

Quote:
American screaming campus garbage babies are traumatised following a genial British visitor’s speech:

Rutgers University students expressed hurt feelings and fear in the wake of a controversial lecture last week by conservative writer Milo Yiannopoulos, saying the outspoken commentator’s takedowns of liberal views were an assault on their sensibilities.

“I felt my identity was getting shot at by what he was saying and by what other people were saying,” sophomore Jasmine Dennis noted during Monday’s forum …
Link's bold.

More:

Quote:
US university students can’t cope with Milo or a rubber puppet dog.

As part of his “The Most Dangerous Faggot Tour,” Yiannopoulos – who indeed is gay – lambasted many schools’ attempts to shield students from ideas that might offend them during his Feb. 9 speech, calling out their “culture of safe spaces and trigger warnings.”

“Of course, they’re not really traumatized or upset – they’re just upset that someone disagrees with them,” he offered. “In my view, anybody who asks for a trigger warning or a safe space should be immediately expelled.
M'bold.

Or, sets up a safe thread...

The article closes, using pronouns from one of these sensitive types:

Quote:
Did xe? What a fxyxing tragedy for the sensitive little fxyxer. On the other hand, fxrx xem and the fxyxing horse xe rode in on.
Don't forget the hat xe's wearing...

Here's another historical Progressive beacon...

“Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid!” Study of an American Cult Leader

Quote:
Despite greatly benefiting from it, he despised capitalism and denigrated “millionaires and billionaires”. He gathered the trust of the poor and oppressed by claiming he was a religious man. Only after establishing their trust and devotion did he admit he was an atheist.

He was lauded by Democrat politicians and dignitaries including California Governor Jerry Brown, San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, Walter Mondale, gay activist Harvey Milk, and former first lady Rosalynn Carter—all of whom either donated money or attended testimonial dinners for him.

He claimed in a sermon that Jesus was a communist.

He was friend to many of the United States’ worldwide enemies, including the Nation of Islam, communist leaders, dictators and terrorists like Angela Davis. In fact he was once described as a combination of “Martin King, Angela Davis, Albert Einstein…ChairmanMao.”
Further:

Quote:
In one of his California sermons, Jones said, “If you’re born in capitalist America, racist America, fascist America, then you’re born in sin. But if you’re born in socialism, you’re not born in sin.

Jim Jones’ ultimate goal—much like the organizers of Occupy Wall Street–was to create a ‘socialist utopia’ in the U.S. but when he realized that wasn’t going to happen, he moved to a strip of land in Guyana which he renamed “Jonestown”.

My kind of thread. Conspicuous absence of leftist degenerates or JIDF shills though, must be hard to post while shuddering from the continuous tremors/seizures resulting from being triggered by all the thougtcrime in here.

Here's one:

Looks like Cuckstin Trudeau is showing his true colors and status (rainbow, and thorougly pozzed).

Projet de loi émanant d'un député - C-279, Première lecture (41-1)

Quote:
BILL C-279
An Act to amend the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code (gender identity and gender expression)
Her Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate and House of Commons of Canada, enacts as follows:

CANADIAN HUMAN RIGHTS ACT
1. Section 2 of the Canadian Human Rights Act is replaced by the following:
Purpose

2. The purpose of this Act is to extend the laws in Canada to give effect, [...] to the principle that all individuals should have an opportunity equal with other individuals [...] without being hindered in or prevented from doing so by discriminatory practices based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, family status, disability or conviction for an offence for which a pardon has been granted.

[...]

Finally I will get the state-sanctioned recognition I deserve! I identify as a trans-misogynist demi-hitler pan-judaic asexual 33-rd degree ravioli-kin (pronouns are heil/oyvey/yumself) and will finally get access to the minority outreach programs I deserve.


Looks like Canada is competing with Sweden in a race to the bottom.

More Progessivism...

Denmark Criminalizes Free Speech - Selectively

Quote:
*According to the court decision, pointing out the totalitarian and cruel aspects of Islam itself is now a criminal offense, considered "insulting and demeaning" to Muslims in Denmark and therefore constituting "racism." In effect, this means that the court is conflating what might possibly constitute blasphemy with racism.

*Conversely, when a Danish imam called Jews "the offspring of apes and pigs," he was officially reported to the police for breaching § 266b, but no legal charges were ever filed against him.

*In Denmark, apparently, it is a crime to criticize Islam and "Islamists," but calling Jews the "offspring of apes and pigs" and inciting their murder in a packed mosque (and calling non-Muslims in general "animals") can be done with impunity.
M'bold.

Further on Unicorn Farts & $15/hr wages...

New evidence suggests that Seattle’s ‘radical experiment’ might be a model for the rest of the nation not to follow

Quote:
Bottom Line: Perhaps it’s too early to tell for sure, and perhaps there are other reasons that we observe such significantly negative effects on three of Seattle’s key labor market indicators last year. However, until the first minimum wage hike last April, all three of Seattle’s labor market indicators had been showing ongoing and strong signs of improvement for the previous five years: the city’s employment had been steadily increasing since early 2010, the number of unemployed workers in Seattle had significantly declined from a peak of more than 33,000 in 2009 to fewer than 13,000 by last April, and the city’s jobless rate had fallen steadily from a post-recession peak of nearly 9% to only 3% by last April (unadjusted). But then each of those key labor market variables for the city of Seattle reversed sharply starting last April when the city started suffering significant job losses, which then contributed to a noticeable spike in the number of the city’s unemployed workers and a sharp jump in the city’s jobless rate between April and December. And each of those three reversals in the nine months of last year were the worst examples of labor market deterioration for each of those variables since the Great Recession.
M'bold.

Ken Dolls(!) Are 'Too Lean, Muscular,' Damage Vulnerable Boys

Quote:
To save you the time Steinberg cost me (ed. note: Steinberg believes time spent exposing SJWs is never wasted), the article bemoans the fact that Barbie dolls are now culturally, ethnically, and anthropometrically diverse, but her lover Ken is still the same muscular white meathead he’s always been. This hideous inequity exposes males to unrealistically “idealized” body imagery, which then causes body dissatisfaction, with failure and disappointment hot on the heels of this potential psychological catastrophe. This is all according to Dr. Thomas Hildebrandt of the Eating and Weight Disorders Program at the Icahn School of Medicine in Manhattan.

Let’s first assume that lots of boys play with dolls, and that their entire childhood and subsequent adolescence and adulthood are colored by their experiences with dolls. If this is indeed the case, I submit that this phenomenon is localized in Manhattan, and perhaps in Southern California. This just isn’t an important part of the culture here in Texas. I realize that boys in Texas are probably considered the offspring of semi-sentient beasts by the doctors at Mount Sinai, but at least they don’t grow up with the kind of crippling psychological baggage that apparently burdens the male children of New York City.
M'bold.

Beautiful...
