Jennifer Lynch's "Enemies List" Really A Collection Of Media Clippings

From The Lynch Mob, after filing an access to information request...disappointment!

To be honest, Jennifer’s list, the supposed Enemies list, although impressive in its own right, reads more like a collection of media and press mentions than anything else. Indeed, it mentions letters to the editor, editorials, media reports, and the like – although it references very few blogs. I saw no mention of Blazing Cat Fur, Five Feet of Fury, Ezra Levant’s site – you know, the usual suspects. And it’s not as if Jennifer Lynch isn’t aware of these sites. So I think it’s safe the say that this list – or at least the list which I received – is not nearly so personal as some may have thought. It reads more like a ‘media’ file such as many companies and organizations have compiled than anything else.

But of course this very innocuousness may be a sign of a DEEPER CONSPIRACY!!! The author demands an accounting of the CHRC's bureaucratic procedures!!

Who compiled this list of 1001 entries – 49 pages worth? Was it part-time? Was it full-time? Was it on the public dime or during off-hours? Was it compiled by Jennifer Lynch, or by another member of the CHRC, or by whoever wished to add an entry? Is this list still being added to? And for what purpose?

Or...wait for it...maybe this ISNT THE RIGHT LIST!!!

*There remains, of course, the possibility that what I have received is not, in fact, the list that Jennifer Lynch was referring to, in which case I’ve either been had, or it was a genuine mistake on the part of the CHRC’s information liaison. If this is the case, then I suppose we may find out in the future that there was, indeed, a real Nixonian enemies list, and if that happens, then I hope to find out about it

Nervertheless our guy appears to be ready to move on.

The comments are also a hoot, as the Speechy Gang laments the fact they haven't made the cut as enemies of the state after trying soooo hard.

Don't worry kids. You'll find another conspiracy theory. Obama is still black and-- some people say--not even American.

I can't believe these fucknobs are wasting *our* tax dollars pursuing *their* conspiracy theories.

Two bad we don't have FOI requests to help us track Kathy Shaidle's associations to American hate groups. But then again, with the changes in the law that Conservatives are proposing to increase the police's ability to spy on digital communication, that might soon be out of our hands altogether. I wonder if she's addressed that somewhere?

LOL. Yeah, we should be wasting tax payer dollars having government officials persuing more illegitimate vendettas against private citizens.

By the way, look what our good friend Terrence Watson wrote for the Americans back in January 2008 (warning; pdf):

I am a Canadian citizen and a graduate student at Bowling Green State University. After this appears in print, I may become a political refugee. But
someone needs to tell Americans the truth about their friendly neighbor [sic] to the north.

I couldn't get further than that.
