IUC World Exclusive: Top U.S. Human Rights Advocate Denounces La Presse Columnist Nathalie Petrowski; Urges Radio Canada To Wake Up and Take action against attacks of “racism, xenophobia and anti semitism”

Posted on April 17th, 2010 by HisHighness in 1

turcottelepageNathalie Petrowski clearly has it in for me. First she slams me for writing a book about Cirque du Soleil owner Guy Laliberte, admitting in a scathing article she had not even read a single word of the book. and now she denies any acts of anti semitism by the hosts of Tout Le Monde En Parle, Guy A. Lepage and Dany Turcotte. (LaPresse) Furthermore, she gets me woken up on a Saturday at 6 am by people furious with her today for her column in today’s edition of La Presse, saying I provoked the attack by wearing pink glasses. The least she could have done was send me a mimosa.
“What she’s saying is akin to saying a woman who was raped and was wearing a short skirt deserved it,” said a top scholar on anti semitism issues.
A top U.S. human rights advocate was outraged that Petrowski questioned Dr. Small’s claim that my interview at Radio Canada was tarnished by anti semitic remarks.
“It’s outrageous and uneducated for her to say that it was ok what the hosts said because they didn’t know Ian Halperin was Jewish,” the human rights advocate said. “Does that make the comments acceptable for Mr. Turcotte to want to burn your books in a fire and for Mr. Robinson to say you look like another Jew? What would have happened if a Francophone was treated that way on an English tv show? There would be riots in the streets of Montreal. Dr. Small is one of the world’s leading scholars on issues of anti semitism. He studies and teaches about this every day. How dare this woman try to trivialize his important and very astute comments. It’s a huge insult not only to him but to the entire Jewish community.”
The widely respected U.S. rights advocate slammed host Guy A. Lepage for what he termed “passive participation”. “He saw the bullets being fired at you and did nothing to intervene,” he said. “He encouraged your slaughter. They criticized the way you dress. If a Francophone artist showed up wearing sunglasses believe me they would not ask him to remove them. The attack against you was an attack of racism, xenophobia and anti semitism. If Radio Canada does not remove these two advocates of hatred and prejudice immediately the people of Quebec should demand their hard earned tax money back from Radio Canada so they are not complicit in funding such deplorable and frightening acts.” Develping….
****BREAKING NEWS****: A Radio Employee contacted me minutes ago, saying he is willing to testify if it goes to court that Lepage and Turcotte’s attack was premeditated. “Not only was it premeditated it was organized by the two of them,” the source said. “I’m afraid that their actions were completely against the charter of human rights and that it was completely prejudice against you.”
Meanwhile, Canadian human rights activists are starting to step in. One prominent Montreal human rights activist contacted me saying that Petrowski’s column was a reflection of “racism, ignorance and slander” being launched at me by various members of the Quebec media who are in Lepage and Turcotte’s inner circle. “Nathalie Petrowski should be ashamed of herself for defending these bigots and for saying that it’s not their fault because they didn’t know you’re a Jew,” he said. “Her argument does not lessen the damage done one iota. What she’s saying is frightening. Does she expect in 2010 all Jews to wear the yellow star of David armband around them so they can be identified?”

    “So they thought he was irish or something. Riiiiight. CBC = media. They know everything and have the power to control information and influence their audience. And Ian’s not stupid. It was blatant racism and fuck that pig Robinson, he’s a rotting hippie with no social skills and I don’t give a fuck about his Cinar biz anymore, he’s proved his point all these yrs, hurray clap clap clap, fine already, he’s winning his cause, NOW he’s guilty of prejudice. there are bad seeds in every lot, whether you’re black, greek, asian, white. We’re all guilty of prejudice to some extent but the point is the guests and hosts of the show are media vehicles with viewers watching and taking notes, they should ALWAYS be cautious and careful with the type of information they convey and the way it is conveyed. The interview was done in very poor taste. And just because the CBC’s a crown corp, doesn’t make them holier than every other station, I think Elixire Sun summed it up pretty well. Radio Can est une bande d’elitiste, surement géré par le QC, contrairement au CBC géré par le Canada, pas la même mentalité en tout cas. The precaution in humor should be equivalent to the budget allocated for inviting all those big names. At the end of the day, it’s just QC, like who cares right? but no, it does. … p.s. Did Robinson actually say that Ian looks like Weinberg, coz he doesn’t look like him at all and to me that’s a cheap shot so there you go.”

    “I beleive that the man with the beard ( Mr Robinson ) got screwed by a Cinar exec who is also Jewish and was transmitting bad vibes to Ian who was sitting beside him. Its very easy to see that Robinson hates Jews and that he has a generalised feeling towards anyone who looks Jewish. Ian probably felt that hatred which can make anyone TOTALLY uncomfortable on public tvAlthough Ian has a VERY STRONG reason to be mad he should not blame CBC and their hosts because they did NOT EVEN KNOW that Ian was JewishI REPEAT!!!! They did NOT EVEN KNOW that Ian was Jewish and as for most French Canucks who do not hate Jews, they also can not tell the difference. In peace and friendship.

    TLMEP has a huge team of “recherchistes “paid by our taxes to help them out. The argument of “ignorance” does not wash. On the other hand, Petrowski admits quite a few things. She admits that Turcotte/Lepage:

    1) “protègent leurs intérêts et leurs petits amis”.

    2) “choisissent leur cause comme on choisit des fruits en prenant toujours le plus beau et le plus rentable politiquement”. (They are cherry pickers)

    3) “ont des partis pris, prennent des raccourcis, et sont parfois juges et partis”.

    Keep it up Ian, lâche pas mon homme (!) – that ‘you asked for it’ message was the same message I was given after a now-thrown-out Vice President at the Quebec Deposit and Investment Fund ( lacaisse.com ) made racial comments ‘tu vois, c’est facile à mettre dehors les anglais’, as a reprisal for finding they failed their Internal Audit (project Politique Attestation Financières). I had a plan to fix the problems, but the Director of Gouvernance would allow me to submit it..
    Petrowski is another brain-washed illusion tranquille Chumpette who doesn’t understand what it is like to be in the skin of a minority here in QC. As PPSansoucy states is clearly – she’s ignorant.
    Since Radio-Canada employees were at Work, they have violated the Working Standars Act – Labour Standards Act (www.cnt.qouv.qc.ca), and clearly engaged in group bullying ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Workplace_bullying ) which crossed the line because it was pre-meditated (your sources came forward already), and anti-semetic. Here are the bullying tactics they used:
    Unkind remarks about someone’s family, lifestyle, body, appearance, shape, weight, clothes and their personal life. — comments about the glasses and look.
    Danny showed his xenophobia by being afraid to give the card to you personally. Showing the tactic of intimidation and was clearly showing hostility in front of the public.
    Disregarded satisfactory or exemplary quality of completed work despite evidence (58 percent). – making fun of your books to the point of saying he’d gladly burn them.
    Reprisal for book on Laliberté, their buddy: Started, or failed to stop, destructive rumors or gossip about the person. — that was their intention with this, and it back-fired, and when you sue the phracking hell out of them, they will only learn.
    They also Singled out and isolated you from the others socially.
    Made verbal put-downs/insults based on race, accent or language – this has happened in the comments, but I believe this was Robinson’s obvious intent by harassing you, as if you were a Wienberg, the guy he hates at Cinar, and therefore is projection of his hatred and misdirected against you.
    They set this up, and they will pay the consequences – you have many, many legal arguments, and see the Les Lois sur les Normes du travail – they have psychologically harassed you for being and Anglo and a Jew – there is no place for this type of racism in QC anymore.

    Mr Halperin, ce que vous faites est ridicule. Vous attisez la flamme de la souffrance face à l’antisémitisme là où il n’y en a tout simplement pas. En fait, c’est plus que ridicule, c’est irrespectueux. Irrespectueux pour tous les juifs qui ont, effectivement , souffert de racisme, d’antisémitisme, d’exclusion ou d’atrocités innommables au cours des siècles.

    Ce dont vous avez été victime à TLMEP dimanche dernier est une moquerie, tout simplement. Une moquerie bien méritée si vous voulez mon avis. Moquerie parce ce que vous êtes ridicule avec des commentaires comme “je suis undercover” alors qu’il est évident que vous êtes affamé d’attention médiatique. Ridicule parce que le travail de pseudo-journalisme que vous faites est navrant d’imbécilité et de superficialité. Ils se sont foutu de votre gueule parce que vous en avez donné l’occasion, tout simplement. PAS PARCE QUE VOUS ÊTES JUIF! Ça n’a strictement rien à voir!

    Si vraiment vous aviez été victime d’antisémitisme, il me semble que le B’nai Brith s’en serait mêlé, non?!? Cet organisme est merveilleusement bien organisé et terriblement efficace pour dénoncer les actes antisémites; pourquoi n’auraient-ils pas fait état de votre cause. Tout simplement parce que ce sont des gens censé et que leurs actions portent vers la défense d’un véritable devoir de mémoire. Ils ne sont pas là pour aider un petit journaliste à sensation minable qui tente de se faire de l’auto-promotion sur le dos de millions de ses frères morts, torturés, désavoués, exilés et bafoués.

    Shame on you, Mr Halperin, for using the memory of those who really died and suffered in order to promote your low-class-cheap-gossip-kind of publications.

    Il est manifeste que vous faîtes tout cela pour attirer l’attention sur vous et il est désolant de constater à quel point cela fonctionne.

    Comme quoi on peut être stupide et habile avec les médias en même temps.

    L’attitude de Guy A. et Danny était irrespectueuse et ils se sont entrainés l’un l’autre dans une spirale. Cependant, je ne crois pas un instant qu’ils soient racistes ou antisémites. Ces allégations seront, selon moi, très difficiles à prouver en cour. Je suis persuadée que lorsque Danny a rédigé sa carte, il n’a jamais fait le moindre loin avec les autodafés du temps des nazis en écrivant que les livres de I. Halperin alimenteraient son feu de camp sur une île déserte.

    Là où je continue à protester, c’est sur les attaques concernant le look. Quant à son travail, c’est un autre sujet. Il y a des choses bien pires dans la vie il me semble.

    Avis à Turcotte/Lepage: il n’est pas question que les Juifs se mettent à porter un étoile jaune au front pour vous faciliter la vie. C’est à vous et à vos recherchistes (1) de faire un peu plus que 15 secondes de recherche sur un individu avant de l’interviewer. Avec le budget faramineux dont dispose votre émission, vous pouvez bien vous permettre ce 15 secondes de recherche.

    (1) Entre nous, quel nom ronflant pour du travail qui ne ressemble en rien à la véritable recherche. Typiquement québécois que cette manière de gonfler tout ce qui provient des médias.

Oops, I guess I just said, without being explicit, that Turcotte is, indeed, an antisemite! He is so predudiced he could not imagine that Ian, despite his bell-ringing name, is a jew!

    Turcotte/Lepage may not be antisemites, but they suffer from acute tribalism. A little like those tribes in New Guinea that were not aware of the existence of another people, speaking another language, in the adjacent valley. Being both tribal and arrogant, they find their tax supported tribalism very “rigolo” (1). No matter the way their behaviour is characterized, Ian is right to want excuses from these clowns. It may not be a question of ethics, but it is a least a question of etiquette.

    No taxation without accountability, messieurs Turcotte/Lepage.

    (1) Not only is TLMEP supported by our taxes, it is even heavily advertised in newspapers like La Presse. Who pays for these advertisement? Turcotte/Lepage? No. Our taxes.

    Lint from a belly button has more sense than Petrowski.
    She writes. “Mais Halperin n’a pas aidé sa cause. Il est arrivé avec ses ridicules lunettes roses qu’il a refusé d’enlever.” This line seems to be the one to stick by for these blowhards to attempt a cogent rebuttal. However when asked to repeat the same inaneness regarding Luc Plamondon no answer is ever forthcoming.

    Now let’s see this classic line from La Petrowski: “À mes yeux, il a toujours été d’abord un anglo de Montréal”
    Aw hell, I wonder why? oh because Halperin does not sound like Tremblay/Paradis/Chartrand or Lepage?

    Finally she reveals that Ian’s english is “not good enough” (sic) Well of course it’s never good enough no matter how hard one tries. She and her ilk continuously move the pawns; forever changing the rules to permit continuance of their stance as victims of The Big Bad English/Ethnics.

    Good on you Ian, for taking a stand, not just for yourself but for so many others~ as said racism, xenophobia, and the “they asked for it” cop out of those who don’t want to take responsibility for the choices they make in how they act toward others.

    The amount you ask ($), in relation to last sunday’s number of viewers is indicative. Nicely done. It’s a very popular show and it is well know that they put on sunday night’s timeslot because there’s a lot of people watching TV. They should be careful not to bash people up on that show. Many will get angry, even though they don’t know Ian Halperin or care about his work. Many oppose these tactics based on principle.

    Being a Holocaust survivor I’m outraged by the attacks of Radio Canada against Mr. Ian Halperin. How can they allow the hosts to do this and get away with this? My entire family is incensed over this horrific incident. Ian Halperin is a class guy who stands up for what he believes in. What’s wrong with that? The hosts berated him for making a living writing controversial books. Last I checked he has represented our country all over the world. Last year I saw him on the cover of Paris Match Magazine. That made me proud, especially since it’s widely known his father is a survivor. I urge Ian not to back down and, in the name of not only Jewish people but people of all denominations, to seek justice here. The comments about burning his books are unacceptable and should not have been permitted to air. As a survivor, it brought back the most horrific memories that I came to Canada after the war to forget.
    Yours very sincerely.

    You will be much more outrage when you realize that Dr. Small will distance himself from Halperin. As a matter of fact, I can tell that Halperin will have to deal with justice soon because Lepage and Turcotte, or even CBC, could sue Halperin if he doesn’t keep quiet with his non sense. I am a franco, and I watched the Interview, and there was nothing racist in it. If Robinson said anything, it was never broadcasted. So Halperin should thanks CBC and Lepage.

    Halperin, you may have money, but Lepage also has, and if can sue you in return.

    If Dr. White reads it, I would like to let him know that journalists are going after him. We will put things back into its context. Stay tune! :)

    With respect, I am a survivor of the war. It is inappropriate for you to tell me that these comments against Mr. Halperin are not racist and antisemitic. My family and I were outraged when we saw the interview on Radio Canada. Please, don’t be in denial here. Mr. Halperin, the first and only Quebec writer to ever have a no.1 NY Times bestselling book, deserved complete respect. He showed his respect by speaking French. The comments made about burning his books have outraged the Jewish community not only in Montreal but in communities all over the world. An apology to Mr. Halperin would be a first good step forward.

    @Ida and others
    Why is everyone supporting Ian forgetting that the book burning refereed to by Turcotte is done in the context of someone STRANDED ON A DESERT ISLAND? Has anyone seen Tom Hanks in Cast Away?

    I, for one, would, gladly burn the greatest masterpiece of all time if it were to keep me alive for a few more days. Books are not that sacred. Human life is more important.

    This is not some form of political book burning. There is no assault on freedom of speech here.
    Turcotte made a JOKE about survival book burning, There is no political commentary behind it.

    Now let me make myself clear: Mr. Halperin has every right to be unhappy about the way he was received by Turcotte and Lepage. They were rude. They were mean and, since Mr. Halperin is not perfectly bilingual, they shouldn’t have been so confrontational with him. He should ask for excuses for being so insulting. Clearly, Turcotte and Lepage thought they’d please Guy Laliberté by being so tough on him.

    HOWEVER, they clearly were NOT RACIST. The only piece of “evidence” used to accuse them of antisemitism is book burning.
    First, book burning is not related solely to Jews.

    SECONDLY, (I repeat my main point here): Why is everyone supporting Ian forgetting that the book burning refereed to by Turcotte is done in the context of someone STRANDED ON A DESERT ISLAND.

    One last thing: I didn’t know Halperin was a Jewish name. To me that is just a name I sometimes hear when I watch American/English Canadian TV. Am I racist because I didn’t know the origin of a name? Some people have argued for such a reasoning earlier on this forum. To me, this is ridiculous.

    This whole thing in fact is ridiculous. Halperin wants publicity. He uses a very common prejudice many English canadians have toward Quebec (that they’re all racists) for it . Worse, he uses the suffering endured by the Jewish people during the Shoah to garner some publicity. This is shameful. More so than the very bad “interview” (hit job) he was subjected to.

The Jewish community and human rights community will rally around Mr. Halperin and seek justice. The treatment accorded to Mr. Halperin, a person who has received wide international acclaim and has been a great representative of Canada, was disgusting and shameful.

    I said Mr. Halperin wants publicity. I didn,t say Jews want publicity. Can’t you see the difference between the two?
    Is there any way to question Mr. Halperin’s behavior without being labelled an antisemite? I think Mr. Halperin’s behavior following the interview has been so immature and so fierce that the only common sense answer for such an apparently irrational behavior is trying to find a rationality behind it. The only logical explanation is: he wants publicity.
    + I had never heard about this prejudice of “jews wanting publicity”. Did you just make it up? Seriously, I never heard anything about Jews being addicted to publicity.

    Most people don’t go on these kind of shows to talk about “world peace”. Most of them have something to promote. Mr. Halperin wants to promote his books and his public persona. There is nothing wrong with that. And it’s working. The show was aired a week ago and people still talk about it.

    “he treatment accorded to Mr. Halperin, a person who has received wide international acclaim and has been a great representative of Canada, was disgusting and shameful. ”
    Did you read my message? I agree with this. It WAS shameful. They showed no respect. BUT they were not antisemitic. They were just rude.

    Il est bien sûr inutile de laisser un message rigoureux et documenté sur le site de TLMEP. Je l’ai déjà fait dans le passé et il n’a pas été publié, sans doute victime de la censure BCBG qui prédominait alors à Radio-Canada. Espérons que cette attitude arrogante du style “hors de mon Eglise point de salut” cesse un jour.

    Now, behold ! Doctor Small is a specialist on the very difficult task of identifying a Jew from a Goy. EXTREEMLY difficult. But once you, like Doctor Small now does, identify who is a Goy then it becomes very easy to identify à Jew because it is simply EVERYBODY ELSE ! Hahaha !! So then it is a technicality to identify the “antisemites” (anti-Jew), they are ALL the Goys !!

    To be upfront, I did not read your books and did not see the TV show.
    However, I am always amazed as to how quickly francophone Quebecois are called racists. You are against the Niqab (which by the way is banned in many European country and even arab countries) you are racist.
    You ask to be served in French in a Montreal restaurant you are a racist. An entertainer (M. Lepage is not a journalist it is a host and a comic) dislike one of his guest who happen to be of a different religion than him he must therefore be a racist. we know it to well QUEBECOIS ARE RACIST. Well to this I say ENOUGH…

    Most of them aren’t perfect but as far as racism goes as a nation Quebecois are not worst than any other (yep including your’s M. Halperin). I do not disagree that you have been treated unfairly (as I say I didn’t see the show). I however do think that you took the easy and low road of the false accusation of antisemitism. Sue if you want, but do it on the facts and not the perception that you have of those.

    Voici mon commentaire sur Vigile.net:

    1) La remarque de Turcotte sur l’holocauste du livre de Halperin (holocauste signifie brûler complètement) a été diffusée le jour de la commémoration de la Shoah (Yom HaShoah), c.-à-d. le jour de commémoration de l’Holocauste. Quelle sensibilité ! Quel tact ! Quelle culture de la part de Turcotte, Lepage et TLMEP. N’oublions pas que cette émission est un MONTAGE : pas une émission en direct. Lepage avait l’occasion de corriger les choses au montage, mais il ne l’a pas fait.

    Le jour de la commémoration de l’Holocauste, on ne dit pas à un Juif que l’on va faire un holocauste de son livre. Pure question de savoir-vivre élémentaire. Et même si Ian n’était pas juif, la remarque de Turcotte demeurait abominable. Il est abominable que quelqu’un qui n’a jamais lu les livres d’un autre ait en tête l’idée de les brûler. Cette idée est digne de Saint-Louis, qui a brûlé tous les Talmud de France alors qu’il n’en avait même pas lu une page !

    Il y a des limites à toujours évoquer l’ignorance comme excuse, tout en se pensant oh tellement cool.

    Avis à Turcotte/Lepage : il n’est pas question que les Juifs se mettent à porter un étoile jaune au front pour vous faciliter la vie. C’est à vous et à vos recherchistes de faire un peu plus que 15 secondes de recherche sur un individu avant de l’interviewer. Avec le budget faramineux dont dispose votre émission, vous pouvez bien vous permettre ce 15 secondes de recherche.

    As per below, Vince you are a moron. You know that. I know that. And your soft-pedal argument illuminates your cro-magnon intelligence. Whether you burn a Halperin book, A Torah, a Qu’ran or a New testament, to burn a book is an insult to everyone. Turcotte and all who follow this story will at the very least learn to be more sensitive to all people. Jokes about race are not funny, nor jokes about events that hurt humanity. When I think of book-burning, the first thing I think about are the Nazis, not the sovereignists who have a right to dream of their own nation. I’m cool with that. I am not cool with fools like Turcotte who are too dumb to know better. Some say, like you, that the comment was taken out of context. Any comment like this can never be taken lightly or out of context. It’s got to be confronted and admitted to, even in jest, as being wrong, and those who make statements like this their own words should apologize for overlooking their gravity. You apologize for those people. It makes you look like a collaborator….

Il aurait ainsi pu comprendre l’humour de ses hôtes lors de son passage sur le plateau et en profiter pour rire un peu lui aussi. L’autodérision est plus que bienvenue à TLM en parle, c’est justement l’humour piquant, juste assez choquant des animateurs et la faculté de rire de soi des invités qui font le charme de l’émission. Halperin c’est tiré dans le pied tout seul comme un grand, les animateurs et les invités n’ont rien eu à faire. À quoi s’atendait-il en acceptant l’invitation? Qu’on le félicite pour pour son dernier recueil de mensonges qui, comme les précédents, semble avoir été écrit à la va-vite dans le seul but de faire des bidoux en exposant la vie de gens qu’il ne connait même pas. Halperin se donne un droit qu’il ne mérite pas en écrivant sur des artistes talentueux qui méritent notre respect. Bonne chance dans ta cause perdue d’avance mon Ian…

    The supposed cult following surrounding Lepage/Turcotte has never been questioned here. There’s always been people who can’t think for themselves and there always will be. But there will also always be people who, because they dislike TLMEP, will constantly jump on any tiny bit of scandal that stems from the show to demand fines, sanctions, resignations and make mountains out of molehills. That’s what annoys me. People need to calm down and start knowing when to actually be offended.

    TLMEP, historically, has done much worse and has made some worse choices than last week’s interview. What they did to a broke, depressed and defenceless Chantal Pary a few years ago was much worse in my mind. I am not saying that the interview with Halperin was a good idea or fun to watch, but to deviate this debate about bad interview choices into anti-semitism accusations ? Please. It’s like the haters don’t know what to do anymore to argue that this show should be stopped and they’re only too happy to bite into this and become enraged without realizing how dumb the whole thing is.

    Should they have apologized ? No. People need to fuckin own up to what they do and start defending their work. Did Halperin think they would go soft on him because he wanted to do the interview in French ? He thought wrong. He had the tools to defend his work, had he only admitted the kind of journalism he does and more importantly, had he not taken himself so damn seriously, they would’ve stopped going at him like that. But nah, he wasn’t about to do that. Why ? Because he knew he could be the victim here. And people just looove victims. Nathalie Simard anyone ?

    …. – and Lebaton, I guess you missed the note above about the classic You asked for it ‘ BS, really, so if a girl gets raped, you’d say to her ‘pourquoi ta mis cette jupe, putain?’. Really, really, soyez lucides les amis, bullying while these guys are working is completely unprofessional – but it is considered acceptable – well, the law thinks otherwise. Check out the Normes du travail and psychological harassment.

    And although I’m sure you’d be happier in NYC where you’re appreciated, as one supporter suggested (where people don’t have to deal with the backwardsness), don’t give into that message ‘why don’t you just leave.’ We live here too, and I know Anglos are not systematically discriminated on the show, I have watched it for years too, but this is clearly a reprisal due to the work on their buddy. It’s Clan-like bullying attack, and they crossed the lines of acceptable public behaviour due to the anti-semetism, book burning, and taking advantage of Robinson’s projection of his fight against Cinar onto Ian because he is a Jew.
    Also, Good job Virgile.net – way to take a clear stand, this has to stop and Ian and his supporters shall not stop. Respect.

    Ian, since you are filing a lawsuit against these guys…do you think it is a smart idea to continue to blab about it on the internet? I mean, this entire blog and comments can be subpoenaed….and we all know a lot of the contents and allegations you have made would not bode well for you in a court of law. I’m not picking sides or saying you are wrong to file suit….just telling you that what is going on here is not wise on your part.

    Also, your Jewish roots proclamation and this lawsuit seem very convenient to the JJ/SB stories and accusations you were slinging out on this site. Ian, I am ashamed of myself for spending so much time on your site with the Brangelina stuff. You have also removed the Princess Diana story (probably more, but I’m not going to dig). I don’t buy into anything you say anymore….nor will I ever. This is ridiculous and you are a sham.

    Natalie Petrowski is the great Quebec apologist whenever pure white laines (old white stock Quebeckers) makes racist jokes. Here http://www.cyberpresse.ca/chroniqueurs/nathalie-petrowski/200901/17/01-818513-rire-dobama.php she apologizes for Veronique Cloutier smears of blacks, sexual abuse victims and anglo Canadians from Bye Bye 08 on Radio-Canada. Can you imagine someone publically humiliating on tv the child sexual molestation victim of your pedophile father like Veronique Cloutier did on Radio-Canada.http://www.cyberpresse.ca/chroniqueurs/nathalie-petrowski/200901/17/01-818513-rire-dobama.php

    Of course the pure laines try to hide all this under the rug and constantly complain about bad treatment from others while hiding their disgusting and racist behaviour.

    Look up the history of antisemite lionel groulx who has many historical places named in his honour in Montreal and the guy was a known antisemite. Get rid of all Lionel Groulx monuments already.

    Sometimes anti-semitism occurs because Jewish people won’t shut up about their preciousness. There have been many genocides since WW2 so why are those heinous events less important?

    A savoir que tout ce qui n’est pas francophone seras automatiquement mal reçu à TLMEP. En tirez-vous une espèce de jouissance personnelle pour écrire de telles choses ? Vous faites du Québec bashing!

    Guy A. Lepage est prêt à se faire enculer pour plaire à son ami Guy Laliberté du Cirque du Soleil. Il s’est bien préparé pour se venger sur M. Halperin. Turcotte, pas plus intelligent qu’une roche a simplement imité Lepage… ridiculiser les anglophone ou les juifs c’est correct mais ne ridiculisez surtout pas les fifs!

    Ian, I think no one should be laughed at or ridiculized the way you have been. It is not the end of the world but it is a lack of respect, I’ve seen and heard it during the whole interview, I felt sorry for you, no matter what your job is, if what you write is true or not, good or not, no matter your religion or sex or the way you dress (which is fine actually!)… Laliberté and Lepage are good in what they do but they do cross lines and go too far, I would like them to learn how to show some respect for brothers and sisters, that is you, me, the public, the guests, people who pay taxes, are hungry, thirsty, are sick and die while Mr Laliberté plays Star Trek and Mr Lepage laughes at those who are looking for the truth… Good luck, I’m behind you.
