What the Trucker Convoy Taught Us

by Perry D Foster
It has been a while now since the Trucker’s Freedom Convoy was broken up and its participants either dispersed or punished. It has also been a while since the disgraceful example of freezing people’s bank accounts took place. I say a while since, in the world of politics and the media, a month is an eternity. So what have we learned?  First the Good News… We have learned that Canadians are braver than we thought. They shook off their lethargy, protested, and showed the world they were willing to go to the mat for something they believed in. That is […]

Conservaphobia

by Perry D Foster
A new kind of bigotry has entered the world. For the purpose of this post I’ll call it “Conservaphobia.” It’s the only term I can think of to describe it. Like all prejudices, it is illogical, intolerant and contemptible. The suffix “phobia” denotes an irrational fear, but Conservaphobia is more than that. It is a deep seated irrational hatred of Conservatives. The far left and the “woke” mob hate Conservatives because we exist and because we disagree with progressive left wing thinking. That’s all the reason they need.  Pathological and Unreasonable Conservaphobia is different from other prejudices. There is a […]

What the Trucker’s Convoy Means to Canadians

by Perry D Foster
By Reed Elley. We are witnessing an unprecedented event in Canadian history, the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa. Another unprecedented event, however, has led to this one: 2 years of government mandates and lockdowns because of Covid. Most Canadians would agree that the virus is a threat to our health and wellbeing. But what we may truly be objecting to is the uneven application of health regulations across the nation. We have seen an unwarranted number of mandates being used across the country, resulting in the arrest of many people, even Christian pastors. We have seen the shutdown of small businesses […]

What Can I Do?

by Perry D Foster
I watch a lot of conservative media and listen to a lot of conservative talk radio. One can hardly blame me. In a society that seems to be going off the rails a person needs relief from the madness. A lot of what we are exposed to on the progressive left isn’t balanced, sane or normal. Can I use that old term “normal?” Thanks to postmodernism, moral relativism and progressive propaganda, the world “normal” has taken on a kind of negative tone, as if stable talk or a lifestyle connected to reality is somehow wrong. Anyway, the most common question […]

You’re O.K. As You Are

by Perry D Foster
Many conservatives and social conservatives have become apologetic. They feel bad about themselves. When the culture war started many social conservatives began backstepping and explaining themselves as though they had something to be ashamed of. Some of them even began to think that they needed to be educated in the “woke” liberal progressive narrative. Nothing could be further from the truth. Strong conservatives and social conservatives are okay just the way they are, and so are you. In fact, we are the ones who are most connected to reality and common sense. Most of us already know that. So, why […]

The Real Bigots

by Perry D Foster
Bigotry is returning to our world. For a while it seemed as though we might overcome it and realize Martin Luther King’s dream that we would judge people by the “content of their character” rather than the “colour of their skin.” That sentiment now seems to have fallen away. We are more divided than ever. What happened?  Identity Politics Identity politics happened. A few decades ago our ideas about what was noble and good began to change. To some degree we lost the concept of objective morality. Along with it went other important ideas such as good citizenship and “civic […]
