TenderSensibilities.com has been on the back burner for a while. Today (today in my experiential context -- yesterday by the calendar), I was inspired to start working on it again.
My new interest in the site was sparked by reading the words of Gary Dale.
Gary Dale is one whom I hope to offend. Just by telling you his name, I've probably already given him more recognition than he deserves but I want to explain why I've suddenly taken a new interest in Tender Sensibilities. You can read Gary's self-congratulatory Wikipedia entry here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Dale
-- That alone may be enough to tell you why I find him so disgusting.
I encountered him today (you know what I mean) in the comments section of an article on the CBC News website: http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2008/06/1 ... onald.html
The article is an opinion piece by Neil Macdonald in defence of Mark Steyn who, like Ezra Levant, is fighting against being made a victim of one or more of the various anti-free speech "human rights" (Orwell would be amused) tribunals in Canada.
In the comments section of that article, Gary Dale demonstrates that he is a morally inferior fuckwad who is so evil as to defend these tribunals, and is possibly in the grip of a delusional belief that he is doing the right thing.
(Steyn is also an idiot in some respects -- he supports the war in Iraq -- but he has attracted the ire of the human rights tribunals not for that particular stupidity but because he wrote a book that many Muslims find offencive. Apparently, they believe they have a right not to be offended. So, fuck Steyn for supporting the war but also fuck the Islamic militants who want Steyn to face criminal charges for his words
In addition to having been a long time "public service" employee and a union leader (strike one), Gary Dale has been a federal candidate for the New Democratic Party (strike two) and a board member for both the Muslim Canadian Congress and, later, for the Canadian Muslim Union (strike three). That information is taken from his Wikipedia entry. So, like I said, he's a morally inferior fuckwad who is deserving of little more than contempt.
Well, he has one saving grace. He's so disgusting that he has inspired me to resume work on TenderSensibilities.com
