Ad Company warns us of sexual violation – and it’s due to CBC content!

ProudToBeCanadian.ca has been warned by what we’ll call “an Ad Company” that we’re in violation of a policy pertaining to lewd or pornographic content with regard to some content on our site — specifically one page or category of pages within our site.

Seems unlikely, right? We’re unabashedly conservative. Not a lot of porn being promoted here.

I won’t reveal the real name of the “Ad Company,” because they’ll probably shut us down somehow or other (we live in a world where institutions and companies are led by hard-core leftists and have been blessed with the power  — by lazy-ass or more often left-wing or hard-left governments — to basically control content and what you see and hear and read; and they do indeed have a propensity to shut down conservative people and sites, it seems excruciatingly obvious to us).

To wit:

[“Ad Company”] ads may not be placed on adult or mature content. This includes fetish content as well as sites that promote, sell or discuss sexual aids. Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • sexual fixations or practices that may be considered unconventional
  • sexual aids or enhancement tools such as vibrators, dildos, lubes, sex games, inflatable toys
  • penis and breast enlargement tools

They might want to advise or warn the state-owned CBC instead of us. The Ad Company is referring to — and warning us about — material which we found on the CBC’s channels or websites, including photos from their channels and websites, which we wrote about — complained about — here, over the years. There were so many examples, we had to create a separate category just for them. So when we remembered to (and we didn’t always — there are far more than what we captured in this category), we categorized some of those articles about the CBC with the category “CBC Lewdity” — meaning those articles depicted examples of the state-owned broadcaster’s propensity to include lewd and basically pornographic or otherwise vulgar material — photos, videos, subject matter, etc — on their pages or channels. This “CBC Lewdity” category is exactly the category of pages the Ad Company is specifically referring to and warning us about:

The Ad Company now specifically threatens to remove their ads — and therefore the revenue we derived from them — from our site unless we remove the “offending” material. Again, it’s material derived from our deadly serious critiques ABOUT THE STATE-OWNED CBC. Which leads us to wonder if they have “banned” the CBC as well.

Coincidentally, we all remember the salacious details contained within allegations against a certain (now former) employee of the CBC engaging in some weird sexual stuff. Here’s a snippet from this (now former) CBC employee Jian Ghomeshi’s own Facebook post, which, ironically, now likely places this website in further Ad Company “violation”:

[snip] … I have always been interested in a variety of activities in the bedroom but I only participate in sexual practices that are mutually agreed upon, consensual, and exciting for both partners.

About two years ago I started seeing a woman in her late 20s. Our relationship was affectionate, casual and passionate. We saw each other on and off over the period of a year and began engaging in adventurous forms of sex that included role-play, dominance and submission. We discussed our interests at length before engaging in rough sex (forms of BDSM). We talked about using safe words and regularly checked in with each other about our comfort levels. She encouraged our role-play and often was the initiator. We joked about our relations being like a mild form of Fifty Shades of Grey or a story from Lynn Coady’s Giller-Prize winning book last year. I don’t wish to get into any more detail because it is truly not anyone’s business what two consenting adults do. I have never discussed my private life before. Sexual preferences are a human right. … [snip]

… Let me be the first to say that my tastes in the bedroom may not be palatable to some folks. They may be strange, enticing, weird, normal, or outright offensive to others. We all have our secret life. … [snip]

Quoting the Ad Company here, it sounded somewhat like “sexual fixations or practices that may be considered unconventional,” and I imagine it just might have included the use of “sexual aids or enhancement tools such as vibrators, dildos, lubes, sex games, inflatable toys,” and perhaps tangentially even “penis and breast enlargement tools”. But if so, that’s on them and perhaps the CBC. Not us. I wonder if the Ad Company would similarly spank websites like Facebook, the CBC.ca site, and many others — which had a duty to report on that national story which was directly related to the CBC, and whose stories remain there, online, today.

We won’t remove the said content from our site because it is important information about a state-owned broadcaster — one which has been obsessed with sex and “sexual fixations or practices…” — and we feel as though we actually affected a change within that broadcaster resulting in their decision to stop broadcasting such total garbage. (But who knows — we have mostly stopped watching that far-left hellhole to save time and brain cells from destruction because most of the rest of their content remains “total garbage”).

Unfortunately, the Ad Company’s supposedly ingenious algorithms fail to understand even the most basic concept of “context” and so we must either dumb-down to their level, or lose their support and ad revenue. And dumbing down to their level would be a stupid editorial and managerial decision. So we will switch it up a bit and will change ad companies — or at least we’re hoping to be able to.  “Ad Company #2” has already turned us down without explanation.

And so here’s the link to support us:

Why left-wing newspapers are not “sustainable”

Going through the papers these days is an exercise in left-wing indoctrination. Duh, you say. I know, that’s not news, to my readers, I know, I know, it’s old news. Fair enough. But it’s worth revisiting every once in a while.

The papers don’t duly cover, say, business, or commerce generally — at least not in a favorable light; nor the value of, say, lower taxes and small government, or not aborting live babies (or as today’s online version of the paper put it in a totally one-sided story about the abortion drug RU-486, it “causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy.” Yup, “expel the pregnancy.” And not one live human could they find who is against that).

Maybe, hopefully, and as I suspect I’m right, it’s why the papers are all failing rapidly.

2016-10-23_152905Here’s today’s lovely Sunday read:

Page one: A huge photo and tease about a seafood “sustainability” program and how it needs to be bolstered in order to force businesses into complying with the agenda of this enviro group.

(Every other word from leftists these days is “sustainable.” Except that they are ambivalent about babies in the womb being “sustainable.”)

Page two – three: A huge whole-page article about the “sustainability” — not of various foods, this time — but of the myriad government money and programs for drug addicts; and as if I had to tell you, the need for much, much more government cash and government programs, of course, because drug deaths are up 61% this year. I kid you not: the article is headlined “‘Sustainable’ change needed for addicts”. I’m only surprised they didn’t squeeze “man-made global warning” in there!

Page four – five: Big article about keeping designer chickens in your urban back yard “to reconnect with your food source.” I think it must have taken everything they had to not use the word “sustainable” in this article. Also, I have a sneaking suspicion, because I’m not a total dumb-ass, that the backyard chicken-as-a-pet push by the left-wing politicians in BC’s urban centers is really all about turning everyone into vegans. Therefore I suggest KFC tonight.

Page six – seven: Columnist rambling on about how the extreme left-wing provincial party in BC, the socialist NDP, which is even more left-wing than the governing Liberals (note that the columnist just calls them the “the NDP”), is against grizzly bear hunting by “foreigners.” (Of course “foreigners” is what the Left would call a “dog whistle” — a pejorative term used to describe as secretly “racist” or “sexist” (etc) just about anything said by anyone on the right these days. Luckily I speak Liberal Fascist, so I can tell you that what “foreigners” means in this case is “those f—ing Americans.” Again, that’s “those f—ing Americans.”

Page eight – nine: Another columnist is on about the proliferation of palm trees in Vancouver. He can’t resist the yummy opportunity to mention “global warming” even though as the article even admits, this proliferation of palm trees, which are of a type which just happens to thrive in chilly climates, has utterly nothing whatsoever to do with global warming, at all.

Page nine – ten: A brief respite of actual news about a car break-in. No left-wing advocacy here. Wow.

2016-10-23_154100Page eleven – twelve: A two-page advocacy article about seafood “sustainability” (which was teased on the front), and an enviro organization’s efforts to force food suppliers and restaurants to only supply food to the pubic that the organization deems “sustainable” in their wisdom (and for these suppliers to pay them for the privilege of being regulated by them). To give you an idea of their strict adherence to common sense, farmed Atlantic salmon, from Costco, which is all my wife and I eat, is verboten. But they didn’t ask anyone the likes of us.

Page thirteen – fourteen: On the surface, a story of a murderer being sentenced. In reality, another example of liberal-left leniency when it comes to drugs addicts and their crimes. The murderer, who bludgeoned his wife to death with a knife multiple times, is sentenced to 12 years less time served. Nope, not a good hanging or even a life term. Here’s the part where the judge was speaking to the murderer at sentencing:

…do everything within your power to rehabilitate yourself to treat and constantly maintain your mental health and to stay as far away as you can from a drug that is a source of so much tragedy in our society,” the judge said.

“I wish you good luck in that endeavour.”

No, there was no mandatory drug treatment either. Good luck indeed. To us.

Page fifteen – sixteen: A sympathetic article about a tugboat which ran aground, and enviro-activists are in a tizzy, which they have every right to be. The chief complainant is a first nations member, claiming that more bans against tug boats going past their coastal village, and more government regulation and oversight is needed, to stop the outside world — mostly Americans, since it’s mentioned twice or more — from doing this to them. The story is from Bella Bella, BC, about which Wikipedia says “Bella Bella has had a precarious and isolated existence.” In other words, it totally relies on all manner of the modern transportation of goods to accommodate their very existence in that region; and being almost exactly in between Alaska, USA, and Washington state, USA, American boats might also just pass by, aside from the ones who supply your lives. That last bit of info was brought to you by me, not the paper.

Page eighteen – nineteen: It’s literally a celebration of left-wing (dare I say social-ist) charity events, called Social Network. Here’s their layout:

2016-10-23_154641

One event was a David Suzuki event, and I need say no more about the far-leftness contained therein; another was a multicultural mosaic-advocacy charity event (no, not a multicultural melting pot or integration with Canadian traditions charity event. Hint: the group is called “MOSAIC” and supports Syrian refugees moving to BC.  Celebrate!)

Page twenty – twenty one: Actual news without a left-wing tinge to it. Wow.

We finally got a conservative respite on page twenty-two, where, mercifully, an excellent op-ed by Jordan Bateman of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation was allowed to advance a conservative notion:

…A better solution for taxpayers would be for every city council in the region to announce that they will reduce their own property taxes by the same amount TransLink is raising theirs. Given the eye-popping increases we have seen at city halls, it is very do-able for mayors to find the equivalent of $3 a year on savings in their own city halls and pass those savings on to taxpayers to cover the TransLink hike…

…The development cost charge (DCC) plan also offers an opportunity for city politicians to show they sincerely care about affordability in their communities. Adding another tax to new housing will make new homes more expensive, so mayors should be scouring their cities’ overly complicated development processes to find ways to cut costs, red tape and processing time for new homes.

Vancouver, for example, already has 107 different taxes, fees and levies on new housing. There is a lot that could be done to offset a new TransLink DCC.

TransLink mayors claim these tax hikes are needed for a healthy region. But being able to afford to live here is also necessary. That’s why taxpayers should continue to hiss for more savings at city halls and TransLink itself.

He will be utterly skewered by the paper’s well-trained leftist readers by tomorrow morning.

There is no business section in today’s big weekend paper. No need seen by these media geniuses to inform Canadians about the wonderful world of commerce and invention and entrepreneurship, at all whatsoever.

I keep waiting for it — the backlash which I think has to happen when everybody just snaps out of it and says wait — back off, you’re going too far, you’re advocating for socialism or liberal fascism, and now we suddenly realize it, and you know what? We tried what you said and it’s actually making everything way worse, every day. Now let’s try making sense again.  

What we all actually need is a big change: like a paper dedicated to teaching and advocating for right-wing or conservative concepts and ideals. Might also drum up sales and make them more sustainable.
