This comment is not politically correct, but it is not intended to run down the efforts of Barbara Kay to restore the truth in reporting in regard to feminist propaganda.
It is a good thing to have someone like Barbara Kay from the National Post write about how Gamil Gharbi’s (a.k.a. Marc Lepine) murder of 14 women at the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal in Canada’s (he killed himself as well) is being used to promote feminist propaganda against men and especially against Canadian men.
The title of her article is, “Lone gunman: The Ecole Polytechnique massacre was a freak tragedy. So why is every man made to feel guilty for it?” (Full Story)
Although her article is right-on about the consequences of that long-running feminist propaganda effort, her commentary falls a little short of being perfect. It does not completely explain “why every man is being made to feel guilty for it,” although it makes it clear that the goal of that propaganda effort is being met. The evidence is clear. For days now, whenever we watch news coverage of proceedings on Parliament Hill, we see the spectacle of grown, well-educated and well-informed politicians (including Stephen Harper and other members of his party) sporting white ribbons on their lapels, apparently advertising their atonement for the collective guilt of all Canadian men for the sins of one murderous, deranged gunman [whose real and legal name was Gamil Gharbi, not Marc Lepine –WHS].
Aside from that, Barbara Kay’s commentary contains other serious factual errors.
To begin with, right at the start of her commentary, she asserts that Gamil Gharbi’s mass-murder was the worst in Canadian history. That claim is wrong, partially a result, too, of feminist propaganda. Too bad that Barbara Kay fell for it and helps to propagate that claim.
The worst recorded mass-murders in Canada’s history involved women as perpetrators, the women guilty of causing the deaths of 400 to 600 small children, the case of The Butterbox Children in Nova Scotia, from the late 1920s through at least the late 1940s.
There was another case that, even though it received much notoriety in the media at the time and actually involved more victims than the Montreal Massacre, is not ever being mentioned by feminist propagandists.
Joseph-Alberta Guay …devised a plan to get rid of his wife. With the help of Genereux Ruest, an employee with a talent for mechanical work, he designed and constructed a timed bomb.On 9 September 1949, he convinced Rita (his wife) to fly to Baie-Comeau to pick up some items for the store and, at the airport, took out an additional insurance policy on his wife in the amount of $10,000. Before the Canadian Pacific Airlines DC-3 left the ground, Ruest’s sister, Marguerite Pitre, air-freighted a package containing the bomb and it was placed in the forward baggage compartment.
The bomb exploded 41 miles into the trip, killing all 23 people on board.
Pitre confessed ten days after the explosion while in the hospital recovering from a suicide attempt. Guay, Ruest, and Pitre were arrested and eventually hanged for their crimes. At the time, it was the worst mass murder in North America.
It is never a good thing to accept at face value anything feminists claim. Feminists lie or accept as the truth the lies of other feminists, and soon, with the help of unsuspecting journalists, those feminist lies take on a life of their own.
Barbara Kay’s assertion regarding “Canada’s worst mass murder” is not the only inaccuracy in her commentary. She also mentioned that “Women have been subjugated by men throughout history.” True, but that is only a partial truth. Feminists are addicted to telling partial truths, but objective journalists should never accept partial truths at face value, especially not the sort of “truths” contained in feminist propaganda (a.k.a. femprop).
Throughout history men did the dirty work for home and country. They died early deaths in horribly massive numbers on account of it, but although at times men were honoured for doing so (not vilified for it as modern feminists are prone to do), it is an accomplished fact that women always were treasured and even put on pedestals for being women. Men were the ones who were being subjugated ever more intensively, ever since and since before the Victorian Age.
All journalists partaking of a regular diet of femprop would do well to take a little antidote now and then. I cannot think of anything better to dispel the effects of femprop than to read two essays by Belfort Bax (he was a lawyer, a prominent socialist and a contemporary and acquaintance of Karl Marx and George Bernard Shaw), namely: 1.) The Fraud of Feminism (1913) and 2.) The Legal Subjection of Men (1908).
Those two essays are perfect eye-openers for anyone blinded or blinkered by femprop.
