Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
John asks: I used to enjoy riding the backroads of Northern Ontario without a helmet. A whole different experience! There is a solution – here in Ontario at least. I suspect that you are Christian, as I am. Christian = bad. However Sikh = good! If you are Sikh, not only do you not need to wear a helmet, but you also get to carry a concealed dagger between 3″ and 9″ in length, called a kirpan, as well. Even on commercial aircraft in Canada, if less than 6cm long. Whereas Christians cannot even carry a nail file. All we need to do to recover some of our lost freedoms is to convert to Sikhism!
My reply: Why am I not surprised? Because, of course, it is of a piece with the double standard as regards speech and so many other things. I have been targeted for economic termination by goo-you-know-who for criticizing various policies. A woman at The New York Times can call for the extermination of white men and she is still writing for The New York Times.
It is “racist” to question hiring/admissions standards based on race.
And so on.
The time to resist all of this is now – while we can still do it peacefully, by speaking and writing.
There isn’t much time left.
