Be Politically Correct! Big Sister is watching you!

Chief jackboot Jennifer Lynch claims that Canadians are "uninformed and deliberately misinformed about the hate speech provisions of human rights law, and are engaged in a debate that is 'completely unbalanced'". She goes on complaining how mean and unfair her opponents are and how ready she is for an informed dialogue {as long as none of her opponents is allowed to rebut} and then she says this:
"Please, please, look. We have experienced 16 months of invective hurled at us, and at any time when anybody has tried to speak up and correct misinformation, gross distortions, caricaturizations, then the very next day there's been some full-frontal assault through the blogs, through mainstream media. I have a file. I'm sure I have 1,200, certainly several hundred of these things," she said.
Want to know if you are on the Big Sister's revenge list? Blazing Cat Fur has the instructions and the link to the Access to Information form posted on his blog. And in case you wonder whether or not having "1,200, certainly several hundred" opponents on file is even legal - of course it is! When it comes to fighting thought-crimes hate, the end justifies the means, doesn't it? If anything, the Orwellian Tribunals believe they need more powers:
Believing perhaps that the best defence is a good offence, the Canadian Human Rights Commission has proposed the Canadian Criminal Code be stripped of the few common-law defences available to someone charged under its hate-crime provisions... Rather than present a suitable humility, it instead recommended the Code be rendered as oppressive as the commission itself!
So what if what you've said is true? So what if the facts clearly show that you're right? You've hurt someone's feelings, got it? So be politically correct or else:
Unfortunately, the Human Rights Commissions have done terrible harm to many innocent victims of (ultimately) unsubstantiated charges. Perhaps the most egregious fault is that complainants have subsidized legal advice, those who are attacked must finance their own defence. They have outlived their usefullness. Let the courts and the laws deal with discrimination.
That's what a "balanced" debate looks like according to Lynch & Co.

The fact that two Ontario PC leadership contestants - Christine Elliot and Frank Klees are seriously concerned about losing the next election if the party adopts an anti-HRC stance; the fact that they have all the polling data to confirm that those concerns are well founded, all that shows that there's one thing the Chief Jackboot is right about: most Canadians are uninformed and deliberately misinformed about the HRCs. Unfortunately, many still believe that those Star Chambers actually have something to do with defending human rights.
