    Parliament’s sergeant-at-arms, Kevin Vickers has already been hailed a hero for allegedly stopping the assailant.

    “All the details are not in but the sergeant-at-arms, a former Mountie, is the one that engaged the gunman, or one of them at least, and stopped this,” Veteran Affairs Minister Julian Fantino told the Toronto Sun. “He did a great job and from what I know shot the gunman and he is now deceased.”

    Native American: As a Native American I feel insulted by that name.

    Redskin Fan: That doesn’t matter because the intent is to honor you.

    Native American: But the effect is that I am insulted.

    Redskin Fan: The effect is your problem as long as my intent is honorable.

    Native American: But if I tell you what the effect is, and you ignore it, doesn’t that undermine your intent?

    Redskin Fan: My intent to honor you is so strong that it crushes that effect, so I get what I want.

    Native American: That’s the type of reasoning I would expect in defense of a team in the NFL.

    Redskin Fan: I feel honored by that remark.

    Native American: That doesn’t matter because the intent of the remark was to insult you.

    @EyeDontThink

    That’s one messed-up post.
    Dude, you’re one shaky cat.

    You do realize Dudley Do-Right was created by an American. So I guess the bulbous chin is what American think mounties look like.

    There is a major problem with Mr. Howerton’s defense of Mr. Abbott, “Latino” is not a race.
    So Mr. Abbott’s marriage is not relevant to the argument.

    The term “Latino” refers to people of Latin American origin, and the countries of Latin America are multiracial and generally racially mixed.

    From Mexico to Patagonia you’ll find white people, black people and indigenous people, and all the possible combinations — not to mention many people of Asian and Middle Eastern backgrounds. More people of African descent live in Brazil than any country in the world, except Nigeria.

    What has made Americans so fearful and stupid?
    So far there have been fewer confirmed Ebola case in the US than Rush Limbaugh’s had marriages.

    I don’t get your point. If Mr. Tarpishchev referred to them sisters then what’s the joke?

  • [-1] October 20, 2014 at 8:50am

    It’s not offensive by itself if you’re referring a certain American ethnic group as “the brothers” everyone pretty much knows what you’re talking about and it’s not really offensive, but Mr. Tarpishchev was referring to two particular black women.

  • October 20, 2014 at 8:50am

    You still don’t get it.

    Mr. Tarpishchev intended this to be racist/sexist comment because Russians don’t think there is anything wrong with making racist/sexist jokes. That’s why he is still completely puzzled what all the “fuss” is about

    As a former Russian (I was just a kid when we landed in Montreal in 1976 and pretty much all my parents friends are Russian Jews who been living in Canada for the past 35+ years) I can say
    Russians are one of the most sexist /racist groups that you’ll come across. (They’re not even that crazy about Canadian Jews, although they love Israel and are huge Zionists).

    So this comment by Mr. Tarpishchev is not really surprising, and is probably pretty mild compared to what he privately tells his friends and colleagues.

    Not surprising that this comment is a huge hit with Blaze readers. You guys won’t even defend your elite athletes in order to attack some supposed PC. And the Williams sisters are the only Americans winning anything in Tennis (and Golf) these days. An American male white or black hasn’t won a slam since 2003.

    PS The reason it’s both racist and sexist is because the word “brothers” is a dig at Willams’ race and sex and if you think it’s just my imagination then you don’t get joke.

    One more reason Republicans/conservatives should relax about Ebola:

    So far all the cases of individuals contracting the disease in the US were due to the fact that they were helping others. So again Republicans/conservatives should have nothing to worry about.

    You keep saying the same thing without directly addressing the points brought up in the article.

    1. It would choke off aid and could worsen the outbreak
    2. It would make it harder to track infected people
    3. Lawmakers are long on opinions, short on practical ideas
    4. Based on current airport screening there is very little indication large numbers of infected people are entering the US.

    I guess you didn’t read the article.

    Everyone here screaming for a travel ban to West Africa should read todays Politico piece on why it would not be effective.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/10/travel-ban-flights-ebola-111961_Page2.html

    Interesting point…

    “…during the outbreak of SARS, which unlike Ebola can be spread through the air, the United States did not ban travel. As now, officials instituted temperature screenings and health and travel questionnaires at points of departure and entry, and instituted close monitoring.”

    And I don’t seem to recall Republicans/conservatives calling for a travel ban on China & Honk Kong.

    I think you’re proving my point.
    This whole episode was precipitated by FNC booking Mr. Brand on Hannity and then cancelling.

    Other news networks have hosted the likes of Mr. Nugent, Ms. Palin and Mr. D’Souza (not sure about Mr. Ablow – he may be an FNC only commodity) to challenge and debate their views on air.

    It appears FNC is not up to the challenge even though they’ve engaged in similar debates with the likes of Jon Stewart (which is my whole point).

    MORTICIAN: What?
    CUSTOMER: Nothing — here’s your nine pence.
    DEAD PERSON: I’m not dead!
    MORTICIAN: Here — he says he’s not dead!
    CUSTOMER: Yes, he is.
    DEAD PERSON: I’m not!
    MORTICIAN: He isn’t.
    CUSTOMER: Well, he will be soon, he’s very ill.
    DEAD PERSON: I’m getting better!
    CUSTOMER: No, you’re not — you’ll be stone dead in a moment.
    MORTICIAN: Oh, I can’t take him like that — it’s against regulations.
    DEAD PERSON: I don’t want to go in the cart!
    CUSTOMER: Oh, don’t be such a baby.
    MORTICIAN: I can’t take him…
    DEAD PERSON: I feel fine!
    CUSTOMER: Oh, do us a favor…
    MORTICIAN: I can’t.
    CUSTOMER: Well, can you hang around a couple of minutes? He won’t be long.
    MORTICIAN: Naaah, I got to go on to Robinson’s — they’ve lost nine today.
    CUSTOMER: Well, when is your next round?
    MORTICIAN: Thursday.
    DEAD PERSON: I think I’ll go for a walk.
    CUSTOMER: You’re not fooling anyone y’know. Look, isn’t there something you can do?
    DEAD PERSON: I feel happy… I feel happy.
    [whop]
    CUSTOMER: Ah, thanks very much.
    MORTICIAN: Not at all. See you on Thursday.

    Just because a website has no informative value doesn’t mean it has no entertainment value.

    Mr. Brand has no interest in open and honest debate.
    ——-
    And the likes of Keith Ablow, Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, and Dinesh D’Souza are?

    After 4 years online, The Blaze finally posts a story with some useful information.
    I actually had to shake my head and double check the URL.
    Kudos to Ms. Klimas!

    So why is FNC too chicken **** to have Mr. Brand on air.

    Mr. Hannity even booked Mr. Brand and then cancelled.

    The charge that FNC distorts and skews the news to fit a Republican/conservative agenda is not exactly new or controversial. Jon Stewart pretty much makes the same point on a nightly basis, yet FNC puts him on Fox News Sunday to discuss.

    http://video.foxnews.com/v/1007046245001/exclusive-jon-stewart-on-fox-news-sunday/#sp=show-clips

    Why would they not have Mr. Brand on the air to duke it out and defend themselves? Or have they just given up trying to defend the indefensible.

    The most common explanation given is by FNC anchors is that the rest of MSM (other than AM radio and business news) has a liberal bias so a FNC is there for balance. But if FNC if guilty of the same bias then viewers are pretty much left with nothing but biased reporting.

    The frustrating thing for liberals is that FNC actually promotes itself as “fair & balanced”.
