And you thought it was just the Egyptian government who wanted to sweep the net of bloggers they didn’t like. Well, think again. In Quebec, one of the province’s most powerful unions – the Centrale des Syndicats du Quebec (CSQ) – is threatening to sue the webmasters of a popular right-of-center blog, www.lesanalystes.ca, as well as a retired professor, Reynald du Berger, claiming that the site featured “hate speech” in a series of posts by Mr. Du Berger and others on January 30, 2011.

The offending words? In translation, they are:

“we have too many leftist sissies! Have you noticed that in Quebec (and it was remarkably in evidence at the meeting of the Quebec Freedom Network on October 23 [2010]), the right, is young and male, the left is composed of old feminized men and old women.”

“And yes, the majority of union members are women, feminized men and collectivists …who like “negative ” discrimination against men and whites. When BB boomers all retire, approximately 80% of all state employees will be women or immigrants. And even if about 64% of positions are already occupied by women, discrimination … continues to apply for some 700,000 government employees. I’m sick of “YOUR” hypocrisy. Of “YOUR” propaganda. Of “YOUR” holier than thou reactions. Thebacklash against “YOUR” follies (union / collectivist / etc.) will be terrible. Might be time to stop pretending that “everything is fine”? “

The complaint then cites other bloggers who discuss the vasectomy rate in Quebec, and complain that women want castrated men, and that one in two college professors shouldn’t be teaching.

According to the CSQ,

“It is clear that these comments are hateful, defamatory and that they undermine the dignity, integrity and honor of women, older workers, teachers, seniors, gays, trade unionists and immigrants. And when these people write that the backlash against union and collectivist follies will be terrible, it’s disturbing because it borders on an incitement to violence.”

Wow – if that’s a call to violence, then every other blog in the country should be shut down, including this one. But the CSQ has sent a lawyer’s letter, demanding the comments be removed, a retraction published, and a public apology issued. In response, webmaster Ian Senechal has refused to back down, describing these tactics as intimidation.

Good on him. As far as I can tell, unions are hardly an oppressed minority deserving of protection. They are well-funded (thanks to the Rand formula, which compels dues) and politically powerful. Yet apparently, they are very thin-skinned – and now speak for every existing “vulnerable group” in society, if their missive is to be believed. Their tactics set a new low for freedom of speech, and a new high for abuse of the legal system. They should be called out for what they are: cyber-bullies, plain and simple.

National Post


I'm writing on that blog (les analystes.ca) sometimes. This morning, the administrator of the blog discovered that one commentator was using multiples aliases but they were all coming from the same ip. That IP goes to the HQ of the CSQ, the union. So it seems they even pay guys with the workers money to watch small right-wing bloggers and use the SLAPP technique.

Did I say I don't really appreciate de corporatist unions ? :lol:

I've always said that leftists are a bunch of feminized sissy boys...with the exception of the women who, of course, may be feminists but they certainly should not be accused of being feminine. :idea:

If you knew french, I would have shown you what the "other side" is writing on those famous blogs. The worst site is CBC-French (Radio-Canada). If you would comment on the news articles of Radio-Canada, knowing you a little Bart, you would be considered worst then Hitler. And they will say it without remorse. But well, the unions make about 680 millions dollars a year with the fees that more than 40% of Quebecers are obligated to pay. They are corporations. If they decide to sue you for nothing, they know they have the cash and you don't.

Seriously Bart, I think you would postal if you immigrate to Quebec :P
