Note

I am too busy these days to write articles that would warrant posting, requiring research, accuracy and my own "unique" commentary.

Instead, I am posting photographs I have take and postings by other writers and bloggers who discuss the issues that I find pressing and important.

But there is a lot going on culturally. It almost looks like we've reached some level of chaos (or nefarious takeover) which requires exceptional vigilance and attention.

My most recent post, with a short commentary, Stay, Pray and Fight is a repost of Tim Murray's Vancouver Canucks LGBTQwertzed the original of which is posted at Murray's Council for European Canadians' website.

Stay, Pray, and Fight

Below is an article by Tim Murray, a (recently) former resident of Vancouver, British Columbia. He moved as far as can tell to the US, fleeing his "city [that] reached the summit of absurdity one step at a time."

The one that broke his back is the news that:
Vancouver's NHL hockey team is going to wear "rainbow" hockey sweaters in their practice session on February 28th of this year (2017). One veteran player told a reporter that the team's message was that anyone can participate in hockey. "Gay people, LGBT people, people of any gender identity...all are welcome to the game if they can play hockey."
Murray will encounter this wherever he goes. I don't think any US city is particularly immune to LGBTQwertization - some much more than others of course, but all ready to run him out of town if he desists.

His best strategy is to stay and fight: Keep his home; Remain in his neighborhood; Shop at the local grocery store; Visit the parks and beautiful waterfront promenades. But STAY and FIGHT!

The realty is that very few people wholeheartedly accept the lgbtq agenda, even fewer want it any part of their children's lives, and many (a sound majority) accept it either through fear of repercussions (loss of a job) or indoctrination of equality and are of the "equal for them but not in family" variety.

Of course the other major dearth that allows such radical changes to occur in society is the loss of spiritual Christian guidance that would let people judge right vs. wrong unequivocally.

So my advice to Tim is to stay, pray, and fight. You can win this.

I've posted the full article below, and it is also posted at the Council of European Canadians website where Murray is a regular contributor. Another of his notable article is:
British Columbia's Anti-Asian History: Was It Racism - or Economic Self-defense?
Of course, this is a loaded (rhetorical?) question.

Vancouver Canucks LGBTQwertzed
by Tim Murray
Tuesday, 28 February 2017


News item: The Vancouver Canucks will wear rainbow-coloured "Pride" jerseys.

So here's the scoop. Vancouver's NHL hockey team is going to wear "rainbow" hockey sweaters in their practice session on February 28th of this year (2017). One veteran player told a reporter that the team's message was that anyone can participate in hockey. "Gay people, LGBT people, people of any gender identity...all are welcome to the game if they can play hockey."

The owners, however, had another unspoken, underlying and candidly mercenary message, which if deciphered would run something like this:

- We want to make money by securing and expanding our base in this, the LGBTQ capital of Canada...this welcoming, tolerant, inclusive and accepting city, the San Francisco of the Great True North, Weak and Free (to do whatever feels good at the time).
- We welcome family-oriented ticket-holders to sit and watch our team regardless of how they define family. (That's good to know because I have always wanted to bring my Significant Other to see a hockey game at GM Place. Barney, my Lab Retriever, has never seen a game live).
Yep, we have come a long way, baby. If only the 1915 Stanley Cup Champion Vancouver Millionaires could see us now. Who could imagine that in the span of a century, men would be skating in drag. While the Canadian men in the trenches wore khaki, men in Canada today can wear uniforms decorated in gaudy rainbow colours. Perhaps Canadian Forces personnel will follow suit. I know that it would impress jihadists.

I guess that is what happens when you become to a "propositional" state. Once men were men, but now men are undecided. "In the first period, I was a man, but in the intermission I realized I was always a woman inside. So I came out in the third period as a new man, I mean, a woman. At least for now, as I can feel that there are other identities in me waiting to burst out and blossom." No doubt there are men in Hockey's Hall of Fame who are the brink of requesting that their names be changed to match their present gender identity. Wayne Gretsky will come out as Hayley Wickenheiser and Hayley Wickenheiser will come out as Wayne Gretsky. But who cares, like the veteran Canuck player said, if you can play hockey, nobody should care what gender identity you assume. I am sure if a former male team-mate had sexual re-assignment surgery, she would be welcome to shower with the team. At least in the shower room adjoining the Canucks locker room.

How did Vancouver climb this mountain to the peak of enlightenment? What were the benchmarks of this ascent to moral depravity and cultural disintegration? When and how was a mental disorder re-branded as a lifestyle choice? How did schizophrenia become gender dysphoria? How did little Johnny become the many faces of Eve?

As an old Vancouver-born boomer hopelessly out of sync with the times, I can only say that my city reached the summit of absurdity one step at a time. The chronology went something like this:

In 50s and 60s, 65% of city residents were of British origin, and 30% of continental European descent. When you strolled through Stanley Park, you could hear every European language, and sometimes, a few Chinese and South Asian voices too. In other words, having a common Christian-based world view, metro Vancouverites were on the same moral page. Those were the days when we left our doors at home unlocked, and the windows of our cars down when they were parked at English Bay on a hot sunny summer day.

Then along came the late sixties and we weren't leaving our doors unlocked anymore. The growing drug trade drove petty theft ("Can I have a toke, man?"). And by the end of the seventies, it was unfashionable to smack your kid on the bum to terminate a public temper tantrum. The Dr. Spock generation took a hands-off approach to child-rearing, leaving their kids free to mouth off to lifeguards, theatre ushers, and teachers, and run amok in restaurants and aboard BC Ferries ships. Children grew bolder when they realized that the Ministry of Children and Families was standing over their shoulders. They were the first generation to grow up without an extra pair of eyes watching them. Gramma and Grandpa were living in another city or province. Home invasions and gang shootings became the staple of the nightly news.


Vancouver Millionaires 1915
Before Cultural Marxism

Ah yes, I look upon those later decades with fondness. They were the decades when parents were encouraged to feel no inhibitions about flying the coup and abandoning their kids because "children are resilient." And Asian gangs were just a feature of the growing pains that we must tolerate to reap the benefits of diversity. I remember feeling proud after reading a report about a female youth gang swarming and beating a victim near a Skytrain station. Obviously the gospel of women's empowerment had filtered down to the grassroots level.

Some noteworthy rungs on Jacob's ladder toward multicultural, sexually diverse (or perverse) heaven were, as I recall:
- In the 80s, Vancouver Mayor Mike Harcourt declared that Vancouver was a "nuclear-free zone," forcing the Soviets to strike Vancouver off its target list. They only had 40,000 nukes to spare after all. This was a testament to the enormous influence that Mike Harcourt had on world leaders.
- Then Vancouver was dubbed "The Gateway to the Pacific." It could better be described as "The Floodgate to the Pacific."
- Then Vancouver was described as "A World in a City." It was more like "Hong Kong in a City."
- Then Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson called it a "Welcoming City." No kidding.
- Then Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson advised that Vancouver become a "Sanctuary City." In other words, the City's chief lawmaker wanted to make his City a haven for law-breakers.
-Then following in Mike Harcourt's footsteps, Mayor Gregor Robertson ostentatiously participated in Pride Day, and saw to it that the rainbow flag flew at City Hall.
- Then the Vancouver Canucks announced that their players would wear "rainbow" hockey jerseys with pink numbers and decorate stick blades with rainbow colours.
- Then Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson declared that his Welcoming City did not welcome Pastor Franklin Graham. His "homophobic" gospel violated Vancouver's "values." Nor should his - -- - Tolerant City tolerate a diversity of ideas, because some of them didn't fit Justin Trudeau's "Canadian values" either. Oddly neither of these progressive crusaders seem to be bothered about the hateful anti-Canadian vitriol dished out in mosques.
It was then that I remembered why I finally fled the City. I am no longer a Vancouverite nor indeed, a Canadian. I am not welcome because the self-appointed arbiters of what is or is not Vancouver or Canadian "values" have more or less told me so.

Exhausted, sad and defeated, unable to recognize the country that I was born in, I have concluded that it is time that I should be laid to rest. In fact, I have already laid out my best suit for the occasion. I can't fully describe it here, but let me give you a hint. You won't find any pink in my wardrobe. And the rainbow flag will not cover my coffin.

The un-Canadian Tim Murray.

Designer Sunglasses at a Cost



We have residents in our Mississauga apartment building who wear designer Karl Lagerfeld sunglasses (there was no sun out there when I saw a woman yesterday morning wearing a pair - in fact it was overcast and raining).

And on a related story, the hig-end home decor store Bowring has closed down in the Square One mall. I haven't been in the mall in the past five or six days and this came as a complete surprise. I thought Holt's would be the the first to go. The "exclusive luxury" shopping mall was re-designed about a year ago partly to cater to oversees clientele, such as "rich" Chinese and Hong Kong shoppers (who wear designer sunglasses), and isn't doing so well. I had predicted this.


No-one will document this scene. I happened to be there as the almost empty
Bowring in Square One mall was removing its final items.


Above is the pleasant Square One Mall with a (shocking) closure of the high-end home decor store Bowring.

Below the store on the lower level is the food court with recently renovated seats and additional fast food selections.
