I have the right to be racist, declares Manitoba's Deputy Premier

Manitoba Deputy Premier Eric Robinson is hiding behind the skirts of dead women to keep his job.

Ever since his racist views about white people were revealed last week, Robinson has been under pressure to resign or be removed by Premier Greg Selinger.

Selinger, instead, has tried to protect his racist cabinet minister, but he only has one arrow in his bow---that Robinson has lobbied on the race-specific issue of "missing and murdered aboriginal women".

Tuesday, Selinger raised the ante to claim that Robinson was nothing short of a Canadian hero, that he had single-handedly forced police across the country to start investigating the murders of aboriginal women because, he implied, the lazy, incompetent, racist fuzz hadn't been doing their job. WE'RE NOT MAKING THIS UP.  It's what he said in the Legislature.

Selinger dismissed Robinson's racist remarks ("the ignorance of do good white people") as something he said in a private email exchange.  
Except that it wasn't private. 
It was an exchange of emails with an aboriginal government official, who appears just as biased against whites as Robinson.
The Premier constantly claims Robinson apologized for what he wrote. Except that when first confronted with his racist attitude in an email, Robinson proudly and defiantly repeated his words. Then, forced by the Premier to retract, a statement was issued over his name in which it was claimed he apologized.  But when he appeared before reporters in person on Monday,  Robinson declared he had a right to be racist.  Some apology.

He was "entitled" to make racist comments towards white people, he said, because "I experienced racism first hand."

Only, he was a little muddled over the details.

First, he told reporters it was because he went to a residential school, the go-to excuse all natives use today for their irresponsible actions.  He was allegedly diddled by a priest at the Jack River School in Norway House, and so mentally scarred that he carries his hate of white people into his public duties as deputy minister.

Later, he changed his excuse. His momma was beat up by a white man and he got knocked out when he came to her aid.  Oh, and she went to a residential school, too, which was probably why she became a drunk and drug user.

We did some checking.  Robinson's mother was in a residential school from the age of 3 to 18 and, according to Robinson, it was when she left that she entered "a world of alcoholism and drug abuse."  The incident where he tried to defend his mother happened in 1963 at the hands of a "non-aboriginal" man (he's suddenly become very careful with his language) when he was 10 and she was 30. A year later she "died alone on the streets of Winnipeg."

Robinson's declaration that he is entitled to be a racist is the most shocking thing heard in the Legislature in living memory. Selinger's insistence that Robinson deserves to stay in his caucus is a declaration that racism is officially sanctioned by the NDP.

When an NDP backbencher thought it would be clever to hint that an Opposition member was gay, Selinger dove in front of the cameras and microphones to disavow his colleague.

"It's not OK to make those comments in any context," Selinger said. "I think this is an opportunity for all of us to take a honest look at homophobia in our everyday lives -- comments we hear that need to be confronted and condemned."......

People have been asking why Selinger was so ardent over a comment hardly anyone noticed but so dismissive of blatant racism by the Deputy Premier.

Do you think having a homosexual son had anything to do with the double standard?

The unreported bombshell conspiracy evidence in the Trudeau/SNC-Lavelin scandal

Wow. No, double-wow. A game-changing bombshell lies buried in the supplementary evidence provided to the House of Commons Judiciary Committee by former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould. It has gone virtually unreported since she submitted the material almost a week ago. As far as we can find, only one journalist-- Andrew Coyne, columnist for the National Post--- has even mentioned it and even then he badly missed what it meant, burying it in paragraph 10 of a 14 paragraph story. The gist of the greatest political scandal in modern Canadian history is well-known by now. It's bigger than Adscam, the revelation 15 years ago that prominent members of the Liberal Party of Canada and the party itself funneled tens of millions of dollars in kickbacks into their own pockets from federal spending in Quebec sponsoring ads promoting Canadian unity. That was just venal politicians and a crooked political party helping themselves to public money. The Trudeau-Snc-Lavalin scandal is

Crips and Bloodz true cultural anchors of Winnipeg's aboriginal gangs

(Bebo tribute page to Aaron Nabess on the right, his handgun-toting friend on the left) At least six murder victims in Winnipeg in the past year are linked to a network of thuglife, gangster rap-styled, mainly aboriginal street gangs calling themselves Crips and Bloods after the major black gangs of L.A. The Black Rod has been monitoring these gangs for several months ever since discovering memorial tributes to victim Josh Prince on numerous pages on, a social networking website like Myspace and Facebook. Josh Prince , a student of Kildonan East Collegiate, was stabbed to death the night of May 26 allegedly while breaking up a fight. His family said at the time he had once been associated with an unidentified gang, but had since broken away. But the devotion to Prince on sites like Watt Street Bloodz and Kingk Notorious Bloodz (King-K-BLOODZ4Life) shows that at the time of his death he was still accepted as one of their own. Our searches of Bebo have turned up another five ga

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. There, we said it.

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. Oh, you won't find anyone official to say it. Yet . Like relatives trying to appear cheery and optimistic around a loved one that's been diagnosed with terminal cancer, the people in power are in the first stage of grief -- denial. The prognosis for Hydro was delivered three weeks ago at hearings before the Public Utilities Board where the utility was seeking punishingly higher rates for customers in Manitoba. It took us this long to read through the hundred-plus pages of transcript, to decipher the coded language of the witnesses, to interpret what they were getting at, and, finally, to understand the terrible conclusion.  We couldn't believe it, just as, we're sure, you can't--- so we did it all again, to get a second opinion, so to speak.  Hydro conceded to the PUB that it undertook a massive expansion program--- involving three (it was once four) new dams and two new major powerlines (one in the United States)---whi

Nahanni Fontaine, the NDP's Christian-bashing, cop-smearing, other star candidate

As the vultures of the press circle over the wounded Liberal Party of Manitoba, one NDP star candidate must be laughing up her sleeve at how her extremist past has escaped the scrutiny of reporters and pundits. Parachuted into a safe NDP seat in Winnipeg's North End, she nonetheless feared a bruising campaign against a well-heeled Liberal opponent.  Ha ha.  Instead, the sleepy newspeeps have turned a blind eye to her years of vitriolic attacks on Christianity, white people, and police. * She's spent years  bashing Christianity  as the root cause of all the problems of native people in Canada. * She's called for  a boycott of white businesses . * And with her  Marxist research partner, she's  smeared city police as intransigent racists . Step up Nahanni Fontaine, running for election in St. John's riding as successor to the retiring Gord Macintosh. While her male counterpart in the NDP's galaxy of stars, Wab Kinew, has responded to the controversy over

Exposing the CBC/WFP double-team smear of a hero cop

Published since 2006 on territory ceded, released, surrendered and yielded up in 1871 to Her Majesty the Queen and successors forever. Exposing the CBC/FP double-team smear of a hero cop Some of the shoddiest journalism in recent times appeared this long August weekend when the CBC and Winnipeg Free Press doubled teamed on a blatant smear of a veteran city police officer. In the latest example of narrative journalism these media outlets spun stories with total disregard for facts that contradicted the central message of the reports which, simplified, is: police are bad and the system is covering up. Let's start with the story on the taxpayer funded CBC by Sarah Petz that can be summed up in the lead. "A February incident where an off-duty Winnipeg officer allegedly knocked a suspect unconscious wasn't reported to the province's police watchdog, and one criminologist says it shows how flawed oversight of law enforcement can be." There you have it. A policeman, not

Winnipeg needs a new police chief - ASAP

When did the magic die? A week ago the Winnipeg police department delivered the bad news---crime in the city is out of control. The picture painted by the numbers (for 2018) was appalling. Robberies up ten percent in  a single year.  (And that was the good news.) Property crimes were up almost 20 percent.  Total crime was 33 percent higher than the five year average. The measure of violent crime in Winnipeg had soared to a rating of 161.  Only four years earlier it stood at 116. That's a 38 percent deterioration in safety. How did it happen? How, when in 2015 the police and Winnipeg's police board announced they had discovered the magic solution to crime? "Smart Policing" they called it.    A team of crime analysts would pore through data to spot crime hot-spots and as soon as they identified a trend (car thefts, muggings, liquor store robberies) they could call in police resources to descend on the problem and nip it. The police
