Apparently he took them on the South American leg of his trip, even to Cuba, so much for trust amongst even commies eh. A bit like those leftist politicians prattling on about the glory of public education, but choosing to send their children to private schools for whatever weasel-reason they can come up with. Something about their ideology they won't admit?Telegraph.co.uk - Startled French security officials revealed that everything the Russian president eats, drinks or tastes must be sampled first by his personal testers - even if it is the finest French cuisine. "A paranoid Medvedev takes over the capital of the Cote d'Azur," mocked the Nice Matin newspaper, asking whether the president was worried that someone would dress his salad with Polonium.
The Russian state is widely blamed for plotting the murder of Alexander Litvinenko, the former KGB officer who was poisoned with Polonium-210 in London, two years ago this weekend. A Kremlin source confirmed that the president always travels with at least one taster, who checks ingredients but not prepared food. ......Mr Medvedev is expected to take a similar team with him around Latin America this week, where he will visit Brazil, Venezuela and Cuba after attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum in Peru on Saturday.
While I'm on the subject of commies, get a load of these lefties in Canada, who incidentally, I believe yearn to give communism another chance. Many pundits often lament that western universities are no longer bastions of free ideas, welcoming the free exchange of opinions and the centers of diversity that they often loudly proclaim themselves to be. It seems there is no room in these bastions for even the little dissent that their inhabitants secretly hold and discuss among themselves.
Diversity of opinion, freedom of speech and thought, LOL. The above is what you call a joke. You know as well as I do, that these bastards are lying through their teeth. Pig's bum it's not preaching and non-judgmental, pig's bum it's not brow-beating and humiliating you into accepting whatever dreamt-up, kumbaya-bs that only a gaggle of leftwing fascists can come up with while high on crack, pot, lsd or whatever they're smoking this week.National Post - Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., has hired six students whose jobs as "dialogue facilitators" will involve intervening in conversations among students in dining halls and common rooms to encourage discussion of such social justice issues as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ability and social class. "If there's a teachable moment, we'll take it," said assistant dean of student affairs Arig Girgrah, who runs the program. "A lot of community building happens around food and dining."
......"This is not about preaching. It's not about advice giving. It's about hearing where students are at." ......Daniel Hayward, a 46-year-old Master's of Divinity student, applied to be a facilitator believing the role would offer him an opportunity to connect with many different students. "It's an opportunity to interact with lots of people, hear their stories, about the experiences they've had, hear the questions they're asking," he said in an interview yesterday.
"It's not like we roam around the halls looking for people having conversations. If somebody is yelling something across the dining hall that's a racial slur, yes, we will intervene in that situation. "We are trained to interrupt behaviour in a non-blameful and non-judgmental manner, so it's not like we're pulling someone aside and reprimanding them about their behaviour. It is honestly trying to get to the root of what they're trying to say - seeing if that can be said in a different manner."
The left won't even allow freedom of thought, they already control most of the universities but that's not enough, not even a single voice of dissent will be tolerated, even those who keep their opinions to themselves and their own cliques must be rooted out and cleansed. The cattle cannot be left to their own devices, they cannot be trusted, they must be prodded and herded in the 'right' direction. You will tolerate, you will accept, you will toe the line, you will repeat after them or else!
What next, re-education centers, everyone to report to homo-understanding classes every tuesday, everyone must read the koran and be able to recite a random passage, Mao's red book next? Friday to be che-day, thursdays kaffiyeh-day, so all must wear something to honor the left's great terrorist-heroes or else? Soon when they realize that these 6 losers can't quite keep a handle on things, maybe they'll set up snitch-lines, so the more treacherous of the weasels can report on their fellow students for a pittance or reward of some sort. Joey down the hall said, 'raghead', the other day, Maggie said abortion is murder last week!
The article goes on to say that some don't think this will be a good idea as some students will become hostile to these parasites, gee ya think! I'd say hostile and violent, I mean do you think the jihadi is going to tolerate some pompous, leftist gasbag prattling on about freedom of religion and how allah doesn't exist and homos are just as equal as him? But then I have a feeling that some intolerance will mysteriously become more equal and their yearning to interfere, connect, interrupt, facilitate etc will evaporate when it's Abdul & co throwing out racial slurs. Funny how that happens eh.
