Hate Comments – or – all my fans

Hate to make a big deal about it, but I’ve been getting some pretty amazing comments on random posts lately, thought I’d share.

Responding to a comment I made on this post about the recent election (where I made some dismissive comments about the Bloc Quebecois, Jean-Francois Boudreault had this to say:
gilles duceppe, leader of hte bloc quebecois

fuck english canada canada doesnt like québec ,well guess what i hate your fucking guts too we will win the next référendum please believe dat fucking pussys

and later:

i want canada to hate québec ,to hate me so i can get my country as quick as possible hate us please hate me hate le FIER QUÉBÉCOIS QUI VEUT SA NATION , LE CANADA NE SE DÉFERRAS JAMAIS DES PATRIOTES COMME NOUS

After which he just gets belligerent:

jeremy clarke is a pussy

My response.

It may be interesting to note that the conversation later continued in email where he unambiguously judged me for being an “anglo-saxon”, quite literally taking a sensitive socio-political issue and putting some serious and strained effort into making it a racist endeavor as well (I mean really, anglo-saxon? As if there’s any real genetic difference between UKers and The French). Thanks for making my opinions look clean and respectful Jean-Francois, you racist prick.

On the “Can’t take a joke” front we have “joey”, who was upset that some people said nice things about this picture:

this website is fucking stupid.
Since when is a picture of a fucking stop light “beautiful.” What a bunch of fuck sticks. And did you guys see this guys zombie-sex porn site? Yes, I am serious.


Fucking douchebag. Fuck you.

Again, thanks for the input Joey, you might want to check out this post though, as I take credit in it for the joke site I built and licenced Creative Commons. If you were joking you need to work on your jokes. If you were serious you need to relax, man, or the internet is gonna make you pretty angry a lot of the time.

Finally, the craziest of all, from Jess, a girl I had the most intensely romantic night of my life with at grad 8 graduation prom (I went to a “middle school”) and who moved away the next day (can you spell “trauma”?), on this post:

Wow, what a thing to find while stumbling through Google…
My picture on your website…

It’s weird to think that my Google Pagerank means that mentioning someone by name in the blog means that vanity searches lead back to me (that post was on the first page of a google for her name). I may have to stop saying horrible things about people from my past after all…

  1. Jean-François! Peut-être aimerais-tu mieux habiter en Afghanistan? Ou encore en Irak? En Corée du Nord peut-être?

    Ton espèce est en voie de disparition l’ami. Veux, veux-pas, tu fais partie intégrale du Canada.

    C’est fini le séparatisme. Arrive en ville.

  2. I’ve taken the liberty of translating the last comment, for all the Anglo Saxon readers:

    “Jean-François! Perhaps would you like to better live in Afghanistan? Or in Iraq? In North Korea perhaps? Your species is in the process of disappearance the friend. Want, want-not, you form integral part of Canada. It is finished separatism. Arrive downtown.”

  3. Apoligies for rant and spelling.

    I hate when people call it english and french Canada. I’m an english Quebecer yes, because my mom is english. However, my dad is french his gradparents are french and for 5 generations before that they are acadian/Irish. So after 250 years I start speaking english and all of a sudden, to some people(see above), that suddenly means I’m less of a Quebec citizen. Unlike Jer I have no problem with general laws protecting french, or even the seperation movement, I don’t want them to win but cool, keep on fighting. I do however have a problem with some people(see above) who arn’t actually seperatist but just rascist assholes and sabotage their own cause by making it impossible for sympathetic people like me to vote along side them. They sabotage it because for some we’re not “pure-laine” enough and will never be accepted. I know french people who after spending a few years in the states come back and certain individuals(see above) start calling them english because they have a bit of an accent now. What chance do I have? None, but fuck ’em, the day I take a racsist’s opinion into mind is the day I die. Some people(see above) hate you because your english and that’s it, but like I said, no time for retards.
    I actually picked up Reene Levecs “Option Quebec” from my library and read it. Some of the ideas he had actually appealed to me, like sovreinty association, but I’m not sure what the hell the bloc of today wants, as far as I can tell, no one does. The one thing though I could never understand is why the hell some people(see above) are so pissed off that Trudeau ratified the constitution with the official languages being both french and english. WHAT? ENGLISH IN QUEBEC? WHAT AN ASSHOLE! They miss the point, yes, people can get goverment services in english and french in Quebec but they also have guarenteed french language services all over Canada. They even get disperportinate amounts of attention. In Nunavet for example they spend 3 times more money translating goverment documents into french rather than into “native”(sorry) even though their are barely any francophones there. In recent years almost every primeminister has been from Quebec and most major politicians are too, that representation. Quebec runs the whole damn country.
    I’m tired of all this blanket English french talk, its stupid. That ‘s for you too Jer. If it was that simple then both referendums would of won in the neighbourhood of 70-80%. It’s just easier to blame an ehthnic minority for social problems than to deal with them.
    Last point, What the hell do I have to do with england? Why do some people(see above) associate english canadians with england. I don’t even fucking come from there and I don’t give to shits or associate myself with english Ontarians either, I’m an english quebec and proud of it, but I’m also proud of my french heritage and I’m proud of Quebec, past, present and future. So go ahead fight for a stronger more independent Quebec, be a patriot(wanting the best for your country) but not a nationalist(thinking your country is the best). Stop phrasing the argument in the terms of our great grandfathers wars. 90% of english people don’t have a problem with french people untill some french person calls them an asshole for being english. 90% of french people don’t have a problem with english people until some english person calls them an asshole for being english. Last, time I saw that by the way, an english person calling a french person an asshole for being french I bitched her out. I suggest you do the same for any rascist you see being what they are.

    P.S. Anyone wearing an FLQ shirt should rememeber that democracy does work here in Quebec and no one tries to stop it, thus referendums. They were nothing but a bunch of terrorists pissed off their side didn’t win so they killed an innocent(uninvolved/foreign ONCE AGAIN IM NOT FUCKING BRITISH) man. The roundup afterwards was unfortunate and a sad part of our colective history.

  4. Let me take the liberty of really translating that because that is probably a google translation and it is horrible.

    Jean-François, maybe you’d rather live in Afghanistan? or perhaps Irak? North Korea maybe?

    Your are a diminishing breed my friend. You are an integral part of Canada, whether you like it or not. Get with the times.

  5. Of course you are getting these anti-anglophone messages from uneducates francophone Quebeckers. They are treason morons who have been brain washed by the government of Quebec through a program that still believes we are fighting the battle of the plains of Abrahams in 1759. Both the Liberal and Parti-Quebecois governments shit on anglophones and I promise you there will be a violent civil war in Canada because of this bullshit.
