Number 1 Victim

What is about that special intersection of right-wing nutbaggery and victim mentality that blossoms in a free speech zone?

Amongst the many thing we didn’t correctly predict when we started this site with a hands-off-let-people-say-what-they-want policy was they way that it would devolve into a looney batch of commentators all eager to show that they are more victimized than the victims that are getting media attention.

Reading through comments here we can see who the real victims are: many of the commentators on this site! They are victimized by the media, by classist minorities, by reality. Everything is against them and it’s just not fair!

And you know what also isn’t fair? Making them cry out endlessly about oppression without giving them any real good strong evidence of oppression!

So let’s do what we can to show the sad racist wingnuts that they are being oppressed: let’s have a vote on which regular commentator we should ban! Post a link in the comments below to evidence that said commentator should be banned and feel free to back it up with a reason.

It’s well past time for VCI to join cancel culture, we apologize to people with brains and decency that we haven’t done it sooner.

For RE to make sense it has to go up in price at least 5% per year. At that rate of growth, unaffordability could become a problem even for lawyers and doctors. But of course, those types of groups can go cap in hand to government for more money, conversely others can just charge their clients more.

When unemployed Pol Sci group with master’s degrees get priced out is when the fun starts.

BTW Zombie, can you please provide a list of the over asking price sales.

Just one political post from me then. Check out the CTV article entitled, “Popular Ontario beach partially closing after ‘human behaviour at its worst’ on Canada Day”

The article states:

“Deputy Fire Chief Craig Williams added to Bifolchi’s comments, saying the crowds made it clear “the public is unable to safely manage themselves.”

“Over the last two weekends, and especially yesterday on Canada, we saw human behaviour at its worse,” Williams said.

“Many visitors displayed reckless disregard for guidelines and ignored physical distancing recommendations.”

The Fire Chief’s patronizing comments are disappointing. People are done with social distancing. I have seen human behaviour at its worst all this week on YouTube videos of CHAZ and violent leftist looters. People celebrating Canada Day at the beach is not “human behaviour at its worst”. The comment that, “the public is unable to manage themselves” is especially troubling. The public doesn’t need to be managed. Stop trying to “manage the public”. You’re a firefighter, not a social engineer! There is so much derision for the public in the Deputy Fire Chief’s comment. I am also sensing an anti-Canada tone in this article. If the crowds had gathered on the beach for another purpose, let’s say to raise awareness about the latest cause du jour of the Left, the Deputy Fire Chief and CTV would have nothing bad to… Read more »

Happy Friday! Just a light-hearted post from me today. I am comforted that it looks like the Left seriously overplayed their hand and are going down hard now. So this comment is about the weather.

We may have escaped Junuary this year but as soon as July hit, it felt like October. I almost had to turn the heat on. It’s been very dark during the day too. Nonstop rain, at times quite hard. And the weather forecast shows mostly cloud and rain for the next 7 days. 2020 sure is a crappy year. July should be when Vancouver gets its best weather.

From Southseascompany’ link

“A telling example is a new two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo apartment in Burnaby’s Metrotown that completes this October. “Originally purchased for $841,800 but now assigning for $784,900,” the July 1 Craigslist ad reads. ”

One would think the developer would just buy it back to keep the buyer from resorting to this.
Bad press, could start a domino effect.

southseacompany
Member
southseacompany

A pre-sale bought back is a pre-sale unsold. Developers need to pre-sell a certain number of units (65%-80%) in order to get financing to build. So, the bank would probably not take kindly to the developer buying back pre-sale contracts.

To avoid this scenario, pre-sale contracts are often written with prohibitions on selling assignments without the developer’s approval. As an example, Wesbank banned flipping assignments on the Vancouver House when the market dropped in order to avoid the ‘domino’ effect.

Who knows what’s going on in the cases cited, but it’s not a good sign – or is a good sign, depending on your point of view.

masks not required (to keep concession stand in business). theatre will now strongly enforce outside food and drink restriction (due to covid-19 of course). this will automatically deter many from going at all.

As to the main thrust of the current topic, I don’t believe in banning people for content and I’m pretty open to all points of view. However, my only comment would be that this is supposed to be a real estate forum and I think at some point this cultural war stuff should only be discussed to the extent it has an effect on real estate. So while I welcome your views here, I think you need to make a greater effort to tie this stuff to real estate.

While I have experienced extreme oppression and hardship, I don’t see myself as a victim and I am not participating in any victim Olympics. I am happy to leave history in the past. It is the incessant cries of victimhood from the Left that has me thinking this way. Because I know what it’s like to suffer and have to put with it and then the joy that comes when you successfully resist it. That’s the difference. I don’t wallow in victimhood.

Make no mistake. Pushing “sexual identity” on 3,4,5,year olds and primary school children is criminal, and child abuse.

Dave

It’s neither of those things, but I would agree that 3, 4 and 5 year olds are too young to understand and appreciate sexual identity. We shouldn’t go out of our way to teach them this at that age, nor should we go out of our way not to. Our institutions should be silent on the issue. However, by about grade 5, I think we need to have these conversations in schools.

Slava
Member

But that is not what is happening.

Transgender condition is a mental disorder, like schizophrenia, being bi polar, or suffering with Munchhausen Syndrome, which in many of these cases is the true problem.

Dave
Member

As a parent of a trans kid, sure, I won’t disagree that it’s a mental disorder. But I also don’t think that’s the best terminology to use. Most would object to that because disorder carries a negative connotation. But this would be word thinking on my part to debate words, when we both understand the meaning of what we’re talking about, which is that something is going on in the brain causing dysphoria.

Slava

It is child abuse. Think long and hard about this. These tactics of targeting very young children are taken straight from the Nazi Play Book, Hitler Youth programs. These tactics have been proven as very successful in achieving their stated goals. The methods remain, and are successfully copied today.

Dave
Member

Even if I granted you the tactics were the same, it doesn’t logically follow the objective is child abuse. As a society, we naturally indoctrinate our young. It’s not just a Nazi strategy, it’s an everybody strategy. There isn’t a single culture in the World that doesn’t use indoctrination. Sometimes it’s a good thing and sometimes it’s a bad thing. To figure that out, you have to debate the thing, not the method.

Slava
Member

The state has taken it upon itself to indoctrinate the very young, weakening the role of the parent, eroding parental rights, and that is what makes it a Nazi Strategy. The Nazis also used the service of corporations to push their ideology, which worked with the state, exactly as today.

Dave
Member

Nazi doesn’t enter into it. All states indoctrinate the youth. All power structures indoctrinate, including corporations. You’re linking two things that have no logical connection. Indoctrination is a tool. Nazi is an ideology. All ideologies use tools but not all tools are ideologies.

Uhh no. That is like indoctrinating our youth about all the other mental conditions that can exist. It would be endless, and take away valuable time needed for academic learning. This is not the job or roll of the state, especially in the primary school setting. These state methods of attacking and eroding parental rights were pioneered in NAZI Germany, and utilized by Communist Regimes.

Dave
Member

No, that’s gone on forever. That’s what cultures do.

Gender and sexual identity differ because it’s a core identity to people and if we don’t recognize and accept it, it causes tremendous mental damage to those people. We have better outcomes when we accept people. And that’s fundamentally in opposition to Nazi ideology.

I too am concerned about parental rights, but this isn’t a communist plot.

Slava
Member

“Accepting” is the key word. How do we “accept” people who are bi polar, schizophrenic? I believe they are treated, that is how they are “accepted” It is fairly evident that trans kids and some of the parents of these kids suffer from Munchhausen syndrome, and treating this would lead to a better outcome for these individuals.
The primary school is setting is no place for any ideology to be taught. That was one of the justifications for removing school prayer from the public school system.

Facts aren’t derived from parallels for a start and not uncoincidentally, the inherent flaw in your use of language. I’ll first explain what I mean by word thinking using a simple example. Let’s say there is a debate as to whether curling or golf is a sport or not. On one hand, a person could say, both require very little physical exertion, participants wear pants and can actively consume great amounts of alcohol and still play, so neither would qualify as a sport. On the other side, a person could argue both require physical skill and both are competitive activities where that physical skill can have a measurable outcome. So there are arguments both ways. But, the arguments are logically irrelevant because you don’t need to put either activity into a category because anybody can understand what each activity is.… Read more »

They also addressed why puppets whose intended audience is very young children should have a “sexual identity” ascribed to them, and why that “identity” should be promoted to children. This is clearly evil. This ideology is being taught by the state, specifically to erode and undermine parental rights. These methods were pioneered by the NAZI Hitler Youth Programs. Make no mistake, by aiming it at very young children as the NAZIS did, the state is promoting an ideology, not teaching “acceptance”. That is the parallel here. The transgender condition is still officially considered a disorder, and that it is. Mental condition, mental illness are also terms that can also be used to describe… Read more »

I am the perfect person to expose the dirty laundry of the LGBT movement’s past. Not only was I there and witnessed it firsthand, I am gay myself and I was the first openly gay student at my high school in the 1990s. As per the rules of leftist intersectionality, no straight people are allowed to disagree with anything I say about gays because I am gay myself. Since the vast majority of society is straight, the vast majority of people can’t criticize my criticism of LGBT, as per the Left’s own rules. This is about weaponizing the tactics of the Left and using it against them.

FYI: i have read several comments this morning in the financial news that many investors are expecting the market to crash on Monday.

Many are expecting the 4th of July celebrations to bring about an escalation in violent protests from BLM/Antifa. There are also reports that many police officers will be calling in sick on the 4th of July. Many are bracing for total chaos and anarchy to break out on the 4th of July Saturday and so when markets re-open Monday, they expect a bloodbath.

I have no idea if that will transpire, but just passing on what I’ve read several times now.
