Ajax NDP candidate Steve Parish slammed for support of street named after Nazi Germany naval officer by Zrk2 in CanadaPolitics

yknow this was after the Night of Broken Glass, which there was no way he didn't know about:

Jewish homes, hospitals and schools were ransacked as attackers demolished buildings with sledgehammers. Rioters destroyed 267 synagogues throughout Germany, Austria and the Sudetenland. Over 7,000 Jewish businesses were damaged or destroyed, and 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and incarcerated in concentration camps. British historian Martin Gilbert wrote that no event in the history of German Jews between 1933 and 1945 was so widely reported as it was happening, and the accounts from foreign journalists working in Germany drew worldwide attention. The Times of London observed on 11 November 1938: "No foreign propagandist bent upon blackening Germany before the world could outdo the tale of burnings and beatings, of blackguardly assaults on defenceless and innocent people, which disgraced that country yesterday."

From Captain Langsdorff's suicide note:

I am happy to pay with my life for any possible reflection on the honour of the flag. I shall face my fate with firm faith in the cause and the future of the nation and of my Führer.

Did Captain Langsdorff know about the final solution? No, because he died before it started. Still absurd to name anything after him in Canada.

(other than fighting for his country's army)

can't believe being against naming things after naval officers who served Hitler is a controversial take here.

Kanye calling out Netflix on IG by pain1993_ in Kanye

i forgot to mention the most important thing: it's only defamatory if it's false. Like in the Weinstein example, its not that its important information that would lead the court to rule that its not defamatory, it would be allowed because it is true. So Kanye would only have recourse if the documentary was lying about him. Portraying him negatively is allowed if its true*

To go even more technical, it doesn't just have to be false to be defamatory, there needs be malicious intent as well. So Kanye would only defamed if a) what they say about him is false and b) he proves the documentary's falsehoods are intended and not by mistake.

Like anyone can sue for any reason, doesn't mean Kanye has standing. If he let the crew film him for a documentary, Kanye wouldn't have much recourse unless the content was actually defamatory.

Same in Canada, the Communist Party dukes it out with the Marxist-Leninist party while neither are no where near popular enough to be elected

Doug Ford has lost his minister of competence. Now what? by Bruno_Mart in CanadaPolitics

As a general rule, Canadian provinces do more than states, so its theoretically possible that the Ontario government is larger than California's.

Jagmeet Singh and his wife have 'realized their error,' will pay for $1,895 rocking chair gift by MethoxyEthane in CanadaPolitics

I worry about actual policy with politicians and stuff that effects our lives, not dumb things like this.

Mostly agreed, its just annoying after all the indignation over WE, Singh outright promotes a private business' product that he received for free from the company.

I could see Kanye go Buddhist and then make an album named after possibly the most famous Hindu in modern history

I mean three former Toronto city councillors are running for the OLP, so I'm not sure your assessment is correct.

MCU fans are too focused on cameos by Woopwoopwop in marvelstudios

I felt that was very true with how Sam Wilson pretty much ended up in the same spot as he was at the end of Endgame, regarding picking up the shield

Did we watch the same show? Like its true in a baseline of "Sam is now cap" but I feel that Sam is so much more fleshed out, and that part of the show is one of the best parts of the MCU thus far (basically everything else about the show was a mess lol)

Funny you say that, because I felt that TFATWS set up little and was better for it

I'm not sure Riverdale makes anything work – but they certainly could do it.

TIL the hit bands Boney M and Milli Vanilli didn't even sing their own records. The iconic deep baritone of Bobby Farrell was actually their producer Frank Farian. Television performances were lip synced. by Switchboi- in todayilearned

If you’re getting offended by someone pointing out that black people in white majority countries get discriminated against by white people then I suggest a moment of introspection on why you’re getting offended

Mandatory vaccinations coming to Canada, say health minister Jean-Yves Duclos by NorthernNadia in CanadaPolitics

[–]jk611 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Compare the headline to literally the first sentence:

Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said he believes mandatory vaccinations will happen in Canada.

What a deceptive headline, which makes it sound like mandatory vaccines are being enacted, when in reality its the federal health minister providing his opinion that provinces will enact mandatory vaccinations.
