RE: MORGAN: Let’s call BLM for what it is. A hate group

Thank God for [Cory Morgan’s] perfectly worded article on this disgusting and vile Abdulhakim Dalel and the BLM movement. Please please do not let your words die out. 

In this day of cancel culture we the right need to cancel out the hate speech of the left as vigorously as they are trying to cancel out our lives and beliefs.  We must take a stand!

What they have just said about poor officer Harnett be our last straw. 

Please do everything in your literary power to cancel out this culture of hate toward our values. 

We must take a stand now!

    We are all living in 1984 now . . . .

    “The ideal set up by the Party was something huge, terrible, and glittering . . . all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting– three hundred million people all with the same face.”

    That was a quote from George Orwell’s seminal work 1984– a masterpiece that describes life in a totalitarian state that demands blind obedience.

    The ‘Party’ controlled everything– the economy, daily life, and even the truth. In Orwell’s 1984, “the heresy of heresies was common sense.”

    “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered.”

    “And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

    If you were ever caught committing a thoughtcrime– dissenting from the Party for even an instant– then “your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten.”

    Now, our world obviously hasn’t become quite as extreme as Orwell’s dystopian vision. But Big Tech, Big Media, and Big Government certainly seem to be giving it their best effort.

      A Totalitarian society ruled by Black Lives Matter BLM and ANTIFA. Their Anarchy ruled the Democratic States for weeks in 2020 with no rule of law and attacks against the very fibre of law and order that keeps a civil society free.

      Now the Vice President elect who then, in 2020, seen fit to bail these thugs out of jail can continue her rampage against law and order. She and her BLM and ANTIFA backers want anarchy along with many others within the Democratic Party.

      God help Americans if Biden’s cognitive functions degrade further and the Vise President elect takes power.

LETTER: WS a ‘voice of reason’ among the ‘left-wing loonies’

RE: MAKICHUK: Seeking economic diversity when it’s all going to hell

I am a new subscriber to Western Standard and I want to say it’s refreshing to read your no-nonsense articles.

In fact, I enjoy reading all the columnists and it’s good to see some “voices of reason” within such a plethora of left-wing loonies.

LETTER: Alberta government needs to step up and fight for province

Why hasn’t any recent premier of Alberta stood up for our province against Ottawa. I thought that finally, we had a champion in Jason Kenney, but he turned out to be another of Trudeau’s useful idiots.

RE: MAKICHUK: Thoughts, dreams and hopes for an independent West

I am a supporter of the Western Standard. I read your piece on an independent West, and I agree with you for sure.

A couple of points; Why hasn’t any recent premier of Alberta stood up for our province against Ottawa. I thought that finally, we had a champion in Jason Kenney, but he turned out to be another of Trudeau’s useful idiots. 

He spoke many times before his election and a few times after, of the federal government staging “yet another attack on Alberta and our energy sector.”

I wonder how many times do you need to be attacked before you realize that you are at war?

It seems that no one, not Jason Kenney, not even Ralph Klein or Peter Lougheed had an undertaking of the constitution.

If they did, they would understand each of the provinces are already independent states within a confederation of independent states.

We already have control of our future. We just refuse to use that control. We ARE independent, we simply need to exercise our independence. 

Our government needs to step up and truly represent Albertans and protect our future, our rights, and our prosperity.

Maybe dust off that copy of the constitution, if we still have one.

LETTER: Alberta needs a leader with a spine to stand up to Ottawa

“We talk and talk and talk and complain and grumble and nothing moves the needle.”

RE: MAKICHUK: Thoughts, dreams and hopes for an independent West

Good Morning Mr. Makichuk:

I totally agree with your column on leaving with the exception of needing a leader.  We talk and talk and talk and complain and grumble and nothing moves the needle. 

We complain about how Ottawa is screwing us and yet no one steps forward to lead with a simple, forceful message that everyone can understand and relate to.  We need a leader with spine, testicular fortitude, a vision and no fear or apology to the woke political left. 

We need to stop this incessant whining because that’s how the rest of Canada now sees us — as a whiner.  We need to shut up and take action.  I think if the everyday Joe knew where to start or what to do they would but they need a leader and concerted action. 

Also, if we could form one large block with Saskatchewan this would give us a bit more of an edge but we need someone to say “okay we’re going this way” and point the way.

Petition: No Media Bailouts

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.

**your signature**



The Western Standard will never accept government bailout money. By becoming a Western Standard member, you are supporting government bailout-free and proudly western media that is on your side. With your support, we can give Westerners a voice that doesn\'t need taxpayers money.
