Shaidle Will Appear

Spoke to The Agenda Executive producer Dan Dunsky on my lunch break, and was told that he was "aware" of the stuff "floating about" on-line. Ms. Shaidle will be on The Agenda this evening.

Will there be anyone else on? The site still doesn't say anything.

Scott Tribe said...

A humanist league spokesperson I believe. One of the Prog Bloggers is a friend of his. That person has been made aware of what Shaidle has said online and the campaign to remove her.. so we'll see if he brings any of that up.

Ti-Guy said...

They'll probably agree beforehand not to bring it up.

Let's hope the atheist/believer dichotomy addresses morality, which would provide a perfect opportunity to bring up Fräulein Schädl's utter lack of it, Catholic, secular/humanist or otherwise.

Well now it's "floating about" on the TVO site as well.

I don't quite understand what the fuss is about...I seriously hope she does go on TVO to discuss her "views", as long as Paiken does his job.

People like her need to be publicly displayed and humiliated for her views and be shown for the whack-job they are, rather than let them continue to post her kind of drivel with impunity behind their keyboards...

What a twit. Now she's whining about not wanting to go, but claims she'll have to be cancelled. Which, if it happens, she'll use as an example of being silenced.

Why doesn't the mouse put on a strip show if she craves attention so much.

Mike said...

Austin,

The problem is, she isn't going on to discuss that stuff - she never is. Rather its about the Atheist bus sign thing. She will be, once again, merely labeled a "religious writer" (which is like saying The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is "religious writing"). They don't invite her on about free speech, nor do they invite her on about her view of Muslims, Indians or blacks.

They pretend she is merely a "religious writer" that somehow represents Catholics. she gets to garner credibility while sidestepping any examination and criticism of her ludicrous views and opinions.

Well, she's welcome to do that crap oh her blog, but not on a station supported by my tax dollars without my say.

Mike,

I think she was on one time re free speech/hate speech, for which she arguably a legitimate source, but the rest of your point is dead on.

Mike said...

She can go on as long as it is not under false pretenses..and its always under false pretenses. I hear even Coren won't have her on anymore...

Ti-Guy said...

as long as Paiken does his job.

Big "if." And you can't quote the obscenities Shaidle has expressed because the show appears before the watershed hour.

Mike said...

BCK,

That would be legit..except that isn't this time, nor was it the last time (when I also wrote a note to TVO to no avail).

Last time she was on with Warren K., Robert Buckman and a few others to discuss secularism...and she was labeled a "religious writer". Hell the still point to Relaspsed Catholic rather than Five Feet of Fury in their Bio...

Austin said...

Mike, while I understand where you all are coming from, I think this can provide a forum to show the disconnect between her as a "religious" writer and her "racism", particularly if they (the Agenda) extend the invitation to Muslims and Jews.

And if they give her a "by" by lobbing softballs, then it underlines that TVO/Paikin have issues in credibility that need to be addressed.

Cockroaches try to scurry when the lights are turned on, but you can't smack them down otherwise...

Austin

Mike said...

Austin,

Again, I agree. I'm just dunbfounded that TVO hasn't figured out that she is a cockroach considering all the light that has been shined on her over the last 5 years.

I mean, one you know, do you put a plate of food out? Cuz that's what TVO is doing.

JimmE said...

Two years ago a Catholic Publisher in Poland was advertising on her site. I made them aware of her intolerant views; as a result they removed their advertising from her hate site.
I've not visited the site since that time. If there's still ads on the site, the kind of outrage seen today can be directed at her advertisers possibly even folks she links to.
BTW, she considers herself a CATHOLIC? !??

Ti-Guy said...

She wasn't married in the Catholic Church. So basically, she's been fornicating (one assumes) and her sugar da...er...husband, whose first marriage was not annulled, is committing adultery.

Bad Catholics in my book.

Dante said...

Half witted discussion for a bunch of half wits.

If you don't like it, don't watch it. Pick up a book for a change. The PMS will pass.

Ti-Guy said...

What's that Dainty? All I can hear is "rawrr waw rah.." Do you have something lodged in your throat? Something long and tubular?

Anyway, I didn't watch the stoat. There's a documentary on the financial meltdown on CNBC, so I'm watching that. I switched briefly and caught the harridan engaged in a personal attack.

What a fucking bitch.

KC said...

As an atheist I cant think of anyone I'd rather be a panelist for the "pro-god" side on the Agenda. The woman couldnt form a logical argument to save her life.

bigcitylib said...

KC and others,

I talked to a couple of people at TVO today and onw of them (can't remember who) described Shaidle as "articulate". Make of that what you will

Ti-Guy said...

I bet her next post features a vicious diatribe directed at the other guests, especially the woman, Gretta Vosper, though she'll probably makes charges of sexual inadequacy against the men as well.

Shaidles a Racist said...

File a Section 13 Complaint against Racist Shaidle

http://shaidletheracist.blogspot.com/


Kathy Shaidle has used her blog at fivefeetoffury.com to promote intolerance and racism against vulnerable minorities for years.

The Canadian Human Rights Commission has legislation that specifically protects minorities from racism and hate posted on the Internet. Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act (CHRA) empowers the Commission to deal with complaints regarding the communication of hate messages by telephone or on the Internet

Scott Tribe said...

Hmm. .why don't you file it, then, instead of going around to every progressive/Liberal blog who blogged about this and leaving the exact same message?

I smell a bit of a bait and switch here, BCL. This person tried leaving the exact same message at my blogsite tonight. The IP is from Dundas.

O.k good luck for Ms.Shaidle.
