So it’s come to this.

We all know how this is going to go. Guthrie is going to ask Sandmann if he is a bad person, and he is going to say, “No, I’m actually a good person,” or whatever the Republican PR firm his parents hired tell him to say, and Guthrie is going to ask, “How did it feel,” and he will say, “I was really scared.” She might ask, “What about the kids doing the tomahawk chop?” He’ll probably say, “Well I wasn’t, and that was wrong.”

Guthrie likely won’t ask, “You and your friends were wearing MAGA hats, a universal symbol of white supremacy, isn’t that kind of an issue?” 

She likely won’t ask, “You were this huge crowd of boys, high on your own testosterone, filled with obvious hate, who surrounded an elderly Native American veteran and taunted him with racist gestures, why in the world should anyone be sympathetic towards you?”

White teenage boys always get sympathy in America.

She likely won’t ask, “Why shouldn’t we believe what we all saw with our own eyes?” The official position now is that what we saw with our own eyes was wrong. WTF!!!

Will anyone on the opposite side of this story, Nathan Phillips, for instance, be interviewed? I guess we’ll find out.

But Sandmann’s journey of lucrative victimhood is now well on its way.

This kid will literally get fucking FAME out of being a complete shit!

Sometimes I wish Canada builds a wall. Christ.

I got sick yesterday, and I was feeling/looking like crap last night.

This morning wasn’t much better but I had to go for a second interview at the job I applied last week… Two people started asking me questions and in my head I was like “WTF why is this sooo serious?”  (I mean is not like I’m working for a lawyers firm or the government.)

After the last question, the boss extended his hand and said “Bienvenu!” (Welcome!) I got the job and I’m terrified!

I start next week, and I have many things to learn. Plus I’m having people under my charge, which is surreal since I haven’t had a team in over 3 years. I’m used to work alone and this will be challenging.

In fact the last questions was something like “How am I going to make people take me serious as a boss?”

And I just answered “One day at a time.”

Just like everything in life.

I know you feel my fire, draw you into my flame.

Yesterday between free time I watched two films. And since I’m getting sick (thanks to the super cold weather) chances are I’ll spend time in bed watching some more.

If you’re the lazy type who thinks English is the only language in the world, don’t even bother! One film is in Korean, and the other one in Norwegian/German so you need to read subtitles.

Unless you’re an awesome polyglot. 

THE MAN FROM NOWHERE

The 2010 Korean blockbuster and award winning Ajusshi (international title: The Man From Nowhere) is a dark, violent and thrilling film that, maybe unexpectedly, contains a big amount of heart and sincerity.

The film is definitely not for the faint of heart. It has a dark, grimy, seedy backdrop of the drug and human organs trade in Asia.

The rage and vengeance that grows in the main character, adds even more to that foreboding and often bloody atmosphere.

But that’s what makes the unexpected heart and sincerity all the more, well, unexpected.

This is probably the only movie I’ve seen in Rotten Tomatoes with a 100% score.

==========================================

THE 12TH MAN

Norway, 1943: after a failed anti-Nazi sabotage mission leaves his eleven comrades dead, Norwegian resistance fighter Jan Baalsrud (Thomas Gullestad) finds himself on the run from the Gestapo through the snowbound Arctic reaches of Scandinavia.

It’s a harrowing journey across unforgiving, frozen wilderness that will stretch on for months, and force Jan to take extreme action in order to survive.

This was a GREAT movie about actual WWII events, but even better was watching a no Hollywood cast playing the roles. 

This was a great reminder of the bravery of the citizens on those occupied countries, against the Nazis.

Well acted, and the location filming was outstanding.

A Mob of Catholic high school boys wearing MAGA hats surrounded and mocked a native American elder.

Politico reports:

Rep. Deb Haaland (D-N.M.) condemned a group of young students for displaying “blatant hate, disrespect, and intolerance” in a viral video apparently taken during Friday’s Indigenous Peoples March in Washington, D.C.

“This Veteran put his life on the line for our country,” Haaland, one of the first two Native American women elected to Congress, wrote on Twitter. “The students’ display of blatant hate, disrespect, and intolerance is a signal of how common decency has decayed under this administration. Heartbreaking.”

Haaland shared the now-viral video that was reportedly taken during the march. The Twitter video surpassed more than 3.7 million views in two hours. The video shows a group of dozens of mostly young men wearing President Trump’s signature red “Make America Great Again” hats and other apparel supporting the president.

 

This is fucking sad and embarrassing, but when you hear those Trumpers whine and sneer at what they term “political correctness” what they are really saying is they want the freedom to abandon common decency and not be held accountable by the rest of society.

And the fact is:

At this point, America looks beyond salvation. 

When it comes to the coldest places on Earth, besides Antarctica, Greenland, and Russia, there’s also CANADA!

Being the coldest country in North America, this week was pretty brutal over here. 

Here in Montreal we are dealing with -32°C (-27.4°F) due to the windchill for the third day.

And that’s not so bad compared to other places… Just take a look.

Back in the 90’s I remember the average temperature on a winter day in Montreal was between -35°C to -40 °C. And I remember that because I had to run indoors many times to not freeze to death. But climate change is making Earth warmer, and that’s NOT a good thing.

Still, I LOOOOVE Canada!!
