    Hallowe’en No More – It’s Canada Thought-Police Day! 

    My post last night on the scary fairy gang… …has attracted many viewers, and some info I’d otherwise not have noticed.

    So the least I can do is post again, on what has become of the fun festival that delighted me as a lad in Perth County, Ontario, so many years ago.

    Well, it’s been outlawed altogether in one Winnipeg school.

    The date 31 October is now being celebrated as “tie and scarf” day, one of four themed costume days the school settled on instead of celebrating Halloween.



    But telling little children what to wear on Hallowe’en, or banishing the very name of the popular Canadian event from schools, is bad enough.

    University students, at least in my undergrad years, were meant to be encouraged to think for themselves.

    A tempora, a mores..Oh, for the good old days!



    Not in Canada, not any more!

    Brock University’s student union now vets the costumes of people attending their annual Halloween party and refuses entry to participants who don’t to comply with costume rules…

    Last November, Queen’s University said it would investigate…

    ….after photos of students at a party dressed as Buddhist monks, Middle East sheiks and Vietcong, was published online, sparking controversy.


    OMG!    Whatever next?!?



    At Waterloo University, the student union has launched an “I am not your costume” social media campaign.




    One must, alas, expect such intolerant nonsense from student unions, but the first two police-state outbreaks were manifestations of college ADMINISTRATIONS.

    Even relatively rational critics of this hogwash are apparently kow-towing, like a Toronto Star writer named Kate Jaimet…

    …whose article “The Halloween ethno-police frighten me”  was published after her four-year-old daughter was told she couldn’t dress as a “Native princess.”

    Yet instead of sticking to her guns, Jaimet crumbled after a scolding from a few Indians, some indigenous readers who explained to her why they felt the costume was inappropriate…



    “I’ve realised that…if agreeing that non-indigenous people shouldn’t dress up as indigenous people for Halloween is part of what it takes to have better race relations in this country, then I can accept that.



    She’s lovely, NOT OFFENSIVE!


    The Hell You Say!

    Free speech, free choice, get binned because some people are too hypersensitive to see a girl in a cute costume?




    It’s the uptights who are the threat to the true north strong and free, the Canada that still lives in many of our hearts.

      So Halloween has been gutted, our founding fathers have been denigrated, and we even had some millenial turncoats in a Maritime university refusing to celebrate Canada Day..
      Its time we took Canada back and kicked out those who hate our history and way of life.

      A little off-topic, I admit, but there’s a good article here – http://redalertpolitics.com/2017/10/31/frightening-halloween-costume-che-guevara-t-shirt/ – about the idiots who wear Guevara costumes on Halloween. It makes the point that even although .getting dressed up as a communist murderer is offensive to all thinking people, that’s no reason to ban it.
      Banning a little girl from trick or treating as an Indian princess is just stupid.

      Thank you for this.
      Not a lot to laugh about in Canada with The Turd in charge of our country but you managed to make us smile today.
      Thank you too for spelling Hallowe’en correctly, which almost nobody ever does anymore. I check – not the CBC nor the BBC.

    Pinko Killjoys Target Hallowe'en, Once Again! 

    And here we go again, infantile uptights into their annual whining exercise about Hallowe’en,

    A brief glance at previous years, like when the University of Florida offered ’24/7 counselling’ to students ‘troubled’ by somebody else’s Hallowe’en costume.

    “If you choose to participate in Halloween activities, we encourage you to think about your choices of costumes and themes,” the school wrote.

    “Some Halloween costumes reinforce stereotypes of particular races, genders, cultures, or religions. Regardless of intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes, causing harm and offense to groups of people.”




    The Derangement of North America! 

    …reminds us that this is nothing new.

    But is it getting worse?

    Here are a couple of links from America, but first an extract from National Review’s article, loads of examples of Hallowe’en Stalinism…



    …schemes drawn up by students, academics and college administrators, none of whom would be any the worse for a brain transplant from a mentally retarded newt. .

    A campus magazine at Ohio State University has a similar flow chart this year, with a similar racial element.

    Again, white people cannot dress up as a person from another race, but non-white people may.


    This photo has no particular relevance, but she’s a yummy and if it annoys pinkos, all the better!


    So white kids can’t go trick or treating as complementary pairs of Cowboys and Indians? But black kids can?

    Good old days indeed – look at those 1956 prices!


    And we mustn’t disrespect followers of Wicca?

    I thought Hallowe’en was a fun day for everyone – it used to be!

    The chart also adds a political element. It asks “Is it politically charged?” and, if the answer is yes, the next question is “Does it make fun of Donald Trump?” From there the only option is “yes,” and the result is “DO IT.” 


    And from Red Alert Politics, we learn of the sad situation in Washington State University, where some weirdo named Jayda Moore, a Social Justice Peer Educator from the school’s Diversity Education department…

    …for pity’s sakes, do they actually hand out salaries for that kind of hogwash??…

    …warned against prospective costumes students may have planned on wearing, fearing that many can be perceived as “disrespectful” and even “harmful” to certain students on the Pullman campus.


     It’s about time for anyone so pathetically immature that they go into tantrum mode over somebody else’s Hallowe’en costume to…

      Its just as bad here in Ontario.
      Take a read at this.

      “. Canadian schools are wrestling with how to guide students and parents towards Halloween costumes that aren’t considered offensive or culturally insensitive.
      In early October, a Canadian school board emailed a checklist “Is my costume appropriate?” to parents planning their children’s Halloween costumes.
      Fuschia Martians, mythical creatures, and animals got the all clear.
      On the what not to wear list for 31 October – cowboy and Indian costumes….

      And a lot more.
      We are living in a sad, censorious society in this new millennium. ,

    Hallowe’en Horrors? But Are Target Toilets Scarier? 

    With  the approach of Hallowe’en, Americans tend to flock to shops for decorations and all the other eerie paraphernalia that are required properly to celebrate the annual ghostly-ghouly event.



    Costumes too, witches, zombies and vampires galore are in great demand.

    But these imaginary horrors are nothing compared to the nightmare threat…



    ….posed to women and children by chain-store Target’s eagerness to give perverts access to the wrong restrooms on their premises.


    So it’s timely to remind American readers of the admirable campaign mounted by the AFA against the irresponsible bosses whose frightening restroom and fitting room policy continues to put women and children’s safety at risk.

    For a year and a half, AFA has been encouraging shoppers to #BoycottTarget after the retailer publicized it would allow men free and unrestricted access into women’s fitting rooms and restrooms.

    In response, more than 1.5 million shoppers have signed the pledge to boycott Target stores…


    Target: A web of deception for women and children?

    We hope you will not be shopping at Target!

    As we have stated many times, our worries stem from both the real and potential threat that predators and voyeurs, or anyone with evil intentions, would take advantage of the Target bathroom policy to harm women and children –

    and we have plenty of incidents to show that they have.

    AFA has outlined just 10 examples that show why Target should immediately rescind its dangerous policy and keep men out of women’s bathrooms and dressing rooms.

    As long as Target continues to allow men free and unrestricted access into women’s dressing rooms and restrooms, these sexual violations against women and little girls will continue to occur.


    There are still people you know who are unfamiliar with Target’s dangerous policy. Will you help spread the warning and let your family and friends know about the Target boycott?

    1. Forward this information to friends and family. Invite them to sign the boycott pledge at http://www.afa.net/target.
    2. Call Target headquarters at 612-304-6073 and personally let them know you are boycotting their stores.
    3. Voice your concerns on Target’s Facebook page.
    4. Support our ongoing efforts to promote the Target boycott. Make your tax-deductible donation today!

    Happy to help out by promoting this message!

    Hallowe’en In USA – The Season of the Witch? 

    Hasil gambar untuk halloween 2016


    I used to love Hallowe’en when I was a kid – they do it much better in North America, and in those days nobody worried much about kids going to and fro after dark.

    Nor did we have imbeciles babbling bollox about who might erupt into tantrum-mode if you donned a sombrero or wore an Indian (NOT bloody ‘Native American’) war-bonnet.





    The neurotic nincompoop who invented the crack-pot catch-phrase ‘cultural appropriation’ was probably not even born back in those wholesome times.


    But back then we stuck to ACTUALLY appropriate costumes – good old-fashioned ghosts in sheets, and witches.

    Hallowe’en is about the supernatural, after all, the night before All Saint’s Day, when demonic activity abounds. A lot of us children believed ‘they’ might be out there in the dark! 

    Hence God-fearing parents would reassure us, as we toddled off, eagerly but yet warily, to trick-or-treat the neighbours…

    ..there were NO SUCH THINGS! 


    Little did we know that parents can be wrong.

    But no worries…just enjoy the party!

    Tranny Granny? Why Are Pinkos So Humourless? 

    ‘Tranny Granny’ Halloween Costume Recalled by Amazon, Target, and WalMart

    The Tranny Granny costume has been removed from multilpe retailers. (Photo: Target)

    To top it all off, “slap on some makeup and get ready for your granny walk and you will have the room roaring with laughter!” 


    Up early today, noisy outdoors, with vendors already going by, but back to bed soon.

    However, a quick look at the ‘news’ had me chortling.

    A bizarre figure, yes, but it’s for the imminent Hallowe’en, is it not? Ghosties, ghoulies, freak-show night?

    Yet the po-faced prig named Maggie Parker reporting on the ‘inappropriate’ costume in  https://ca.style.yahoo.com/tranny-granny-halloween-costume-recalled-by-164654452.html feels compelled to stamp her (or is it his – who knows these days?) little mincing foot! 

    While Halloween is supposed to be fun and shame-free (although we wish every day were shame-free), some retailers didn’t get the message and are selling disappointingly inappropriate costumes.

    Then he/she shrills away about what’s wrong with that portrayal but fails to tell us exactly what IS wrong with it. From the description, it’s pretty funny.

    But Maggie rants on, with side-swipes at ‘tactless’ costumes, quoting some boring bint named Mahala Herron –

    “Halloween is coming up, so everyone please remember that my culture isn’t a costume,” she tweeted.

    Uptight woman then accompanied the tweet with a picture that actually displays three costumes –  One head is adorned in a hijab, another is wearing cornrows, and the third is in a headdress

    ….tho I admit I had to Google check to find out what corn-rows are – yuk!)

    When will these sour pinkos grow a sense of humour?

    Happy Hallowe’en – Beware Pumpkin Threat To Planet! 

    Looking through all those Jakarta fairs, parties etc. organised to celebrate Hallowe’en (or Halloween as they regrettably mis-spell it, mostly) has almost inspired me to go out trick or treating myself.

    But too much mid-week partying has dissuaded me.

    • Better, surely, to lounge here at home with a visitor due soon to tend to my sloth.

    However, I do wish I’d got a pumpkin to light up in my little front yard.

    Spoiler Alert: Government Warns Pumpkins and Jack-o’-Lanterns Cause Global Warming


    ——————-  Are you preparing to participate in the fun filled holiday of Halloween this weekend? Did you carve pumpkins into Jack-o’-lanterns with your children, friends or family?

    Well, you should be ashamed of yourself.

    Don’t you know that pumpkins cause global warming when they decay by emitting methane (the same thing emitted from the bowels of cows), which is a far more dangerous “greenhouse gas” than carbon dioxide?


    As Katie Pavlich asks,

     What’s next? A government mandated pumpkin recycling program?


    Exit question: How much taxpayer money was spent on demeaning pumpkins and Halloween?

    Oh, and just to cheer my American readers even more, here’s another headline from the same site.

    Have a happy!
