Layton Gets Up-Close And Personal With His Colon

by matttbastard


Way to play wingman while Uncle Steve flirts with nativism, Jack.

h/t pogge and Sinister Greg.

Update: Found the following delightful dispatch at a private forum; apparently it’s making the rounds as an email forward. Who knew Bryan Adam’s manager was a racist sack of shit – and that his unrepentant bigotry would strike a chord with ‘real’ citizens:


Bruce Allan [sic] is on the 2010 Olympic Committee and new Canadians (specifically Hindi’s / Indian’s) want him fired for his recent comments outlined below;
Our National Anthem: I am sorry, but after hearing they want to sing the National Anthem in Hindi – enough is enough. Nowhere or at no other time in our nation’s history, did they sing it in Italian, Japanese, Polish, Irish (Celtic), German, Portuguese, Greek, or any other language because of immigration.
It was written in English, adapted into co-founding French, and should be sung word for word the way it was written. The news broadcasts even gave the Hindi version translation which was not even close to our National Anthem. I am not sorry if this offends anyone, this is MY COUNTRY – IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP —- please pass this along.

I am not against immigration – just come through like everyone else. Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head; have a job; pay your taxes, live by the rules AND LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all other immigrants have in the past and LONG LIVE CANADA!”

It’s time we all get behind Bruce Allen, and scrap this Political Correctness crap. His comments were anything but racist, but there are far too many overly sensitive ‘New Canadians’ that are trying to change everything we hold dear. ARE WE PART OF THE PROBLEM! Think about this: If you don’t want to forward this for fear of offending someone,will we still be the Country of Choice and still be CANADA if we continue to make the changes forced on us by the people from other countries who have come to live in CANADA because it is the Country of Choice? Think about it.

IMMIGRANTS, NOT CANADIAN’S, MUST ADAPT. It is Time for CANADA to speak up. If you agree – pass this along.

Is that the sort of dangerously exclusive sentiment our political elite wish to further cultivate in Canada by legitimizing othering and outright xenophobia? Because misguided sops to the lowest common denominator like the so-called ‘show-your-face’ bill only encourages the dubious celebration of cultural homogeneity. Like Greg says, “[i]f they think these kinds of actions will not have consequences for the health of our society, they are wrong.”

 Update 2: Dr Dawg has an ultimatum for the NDP: vote this bill down or forever lose his support.  Count me in–even though I haven’t been a member since 2003, I’ve never voted for any other party other than the Dippers. But I can’t in good conscience continue to support them if they allow this bill to pass.

  1. Never heard of this Bruce Allen asshole before. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the xenophobes are “coming out to play” while the Cons and racist provincial parties (SaskParty, ADQ, etc) are getting lots of air-time. Gahh!! Next thing you know, we’ll have our own Lou Dobbs!*

    *yes, Michael Coren, we got yer audition reel. Stop asking!!


  2. Behold the wisdom of the man behind the crappiest of Canrock.
    What if I want sing O Canada in Cree, Bruce? Does that pass muster?
    Or is that still a little too indian for you?


  3. And I should say that I’m not so full of myself that I think the loss of my support will mean a damn to the NDP! But if quite a few of us move in the same direction, the brass might give their collective head a badly-needed shake.


  4. Jack definitely gets today’s HUYA (head-up-yer-ass) award. Would be nice if someone would actually provide evidence about all the supposed voter fraud that is apparently running roughshod over our so-called democracy. Ontario election most recent. all were required to state their name, rank & serial #, err make that name and address, in the generally accepted Ontari-ari-arian dialect. Now we are to believe pumpkin-people ruined the most recent federal by-elections? How do we know it wasn’t just a radio shock jock (cough-Bruce Allen clone) stuntin’? Or maybe Frank Soda is making a comeback?


  5. Bruce is basically a loudmouth with a bully pulpit. Have to admit more than passing familiarity with the man having been associated with Vancouver’s music and entertainment industry for a couple decades.

    His extended shouted harangues/rants at staff, clients, agents, partners etc… emanating from his offices at 68 Water St. are legendary in thsi city. Impossible not to miss hearing him bellow in that mode even while sitting in an office in the same building two floors away. I keed you not.

    Btw – his last name is spelled A-S-S-H-O-L-E

    Late to the party, folks. The whole flap is very old news (in Vancouver at least) – the broadcast happened in September. He’s been ridiculed here, chastised publically and he’s back to his weekly rant which nobody pays any attention to… but news from out here does take a little while to make it across the ‘Granite Curtain’. ;-)

    Best course of action with the Loudmouth Schook? Ignore him. Really. He’s not taken seriously out here, even if he is on ‘Angry White Man Radio’ aka CKNW. Their age demographic is basically ’65 to dead’.

    If you really feel you must have a taste of his so-called ‘Reality Check’, here ya’ go –

    As far as VANOC/2010 canning his sorry ass? Won’t happen, but would you expect otherwise from VANOC? Another bunch of clowns. They and Allen deserve each other. I say let them embarrass us on the world stage, if it comes to that. Show themselves to an international audience for what they are. That is, if A-S-S-H-O-L-E doesn’t suffer a stroke or embolism brought on from his misguided anger before then. Gawds, I can’t wait for for the whole 2010 circus to be over (I lived through Montreal ’76) – another event that is best completely ignored. I dread it. Everytime I pass by the effing ‘Olympic Countodown Clock’ on the Georgia Street side of the Vancouver Art Gallery I feel like pulling an ‘Ozzy Osbourne at The Alamo’, if you know what I mean.

    FF’s parting shot and history lesson for loudmouth schnooks –

    The first lyrics to O Canada were written in French by Sir Adolphe Basile Routhier in 1880. An English translation did not appear until 1906, and it was two more years until Robert Stanley Weir penned the English lyrics, which are not a translation of the French. Weir’s words were altered in 1914 and again in 1980 to their present form, although the French lyrics remain unaltered.

    The original lyrics in French are actually better. Waaaaaay better.

    That’s how seriously B.A. should be considered. An uneducated, know nothing, loudmouth bully who can’t take a punch. Really. He only has one true talent – he can shout louder than anyone in Vancouver.

    I mean, this is the man responsible for BTO, Loverboy and Bryan Adams’ ‘world domination of the airwaves’. Now you know who to blame.

    ’nuff said?

    /FF rant off.


  6. *chuckling”

    Funny stuff there k’in. Honestly? I didn’t think Frank Soda was still among the sentient and breathing. Last time I saw him was a five or so years back getting his ass hauled out of the Railway Club because he had a major meltdown that his name wasn’t on the pest list for some forgotten schlocky band.

    Was too lazy to go through all of thsoe photos, but are there any from his early 70’s stint with Thor? ;-)


  7. Guess I should comment about Jack, huh? After all, that’s the main point of the post.

    Yep, agree with HUYA award. The NDP has really lost me the past 3 years. I was campaign volunteer federally and provincially for many years. I gave that up when they ran Svend ‘Nimble Fingers’ Robinson in my riding (Vancouver-Centre) in 2006.

    Since then it’s been almost nothing but playing footsie with Harper. (although there are individual federal BC Dippers I would cast a vote for – Libby Davies, Bill Siksay, Peter Julian, Nathan Cullen, Denise Savoie – I just don’t live in their ridings).

    Don’t get me wrong. I once had the deepest respect and admiration for Svend. He was my MP when I resided in North Burnaby. But that was a long tine ago. If only, if only Tim Stephenson had been their candidate instead.

    Guess this leaves me with only one option in VanCentre whenever the federal writ is dropped – Adrienne Carr.

    Jack is no Tommy Douglas, Dave Lewis, Ed Broadbent or Alexa McDonough.

    I want my Canada back, and I want my NDP back.
