Resistance is futile! Government “Borg” revokes vanity plate offensive to natives

David MenziesMission Specialist

Rebel viewers may recall my rant about the revocation of Lorne Grabher’s vanity plate after a sensitive snowflake interpreted it as a two-word command “Grab Her”, but wait ’til you see what the Licence Plate Police have done for an encore.

Watch as I bring you the bizarre case of Winnipeg’s Nick Troller, a Trekkie and a particular fan of those alien bad-asses, The Borg.

The Borg are all about assimilating other species, so he purchased an alphanumeric plate reading "assimilate" but two years after getting it, two complaints were made claiming it was offensive and he was ordered to surrender it.

So, what could possibly be offensive about the prime directive of a fictional alien race from Star Trek?

Well, apparently “assimilate” is offensive to indigenous people, and the province agrees.

But does the word assimilate on a vanity licence plate truly affect the myriad issues natives must deal with in Canada today? And does the removal of that word solve any of those issues?

I suspect the answer is no. It’s just a word.

What’s worse though is that once a government entity makes a decision to revoke a licence plate for whatever reason, that’s it. There’s no debate, no appeal process and no negotiations.

Come to think of it, the Manitoba government is living up to the slogan of the alien race Troller is making reference to: Resistance is futile.

So what would a friend of mine, named Michael Hunt do when he uses the short version of his first name, combined with his last name? Surely that must be acceptable.

Good thing the Muslims didn’t get wind of this because surely they would have this before a Human Rights commission, suing for copious amounts of money from the plate owner and the province for allowing it.

Perhaps he should go public and state that he has been toying with becoming a Muslim and now must sue the government, Minister in charge of transportation, and the DMV (or whatever) for not allowing his possible possible conversion (aka assimilation) to Islam. No hell is worse than that of a denied Muslim convert!

If we see plates with GURL, should we make a complaint that it is against men? How about IH8U as inflammatory? Would KANADA be too provocative a plate or too insulting to those who believe in “Turtle Island” or open borders?

Hot summer days are coming, and we can hope all the snowflakes simply melt away – or am I now in trouble for wishing them to disappear? Now I gotta hide from the Thought Police!

Thanks so much David.
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.
How sickening that our society has produced these pathetic crybabies.
I think we rebels should all make a complaint that NUMBERS are too controlling and insulting and we want them removed for all licence plates,advertising and especially phone books.
BTW,my plate could be read as WORKING , I hope i’m not insulting those fragile,lazy,easily triggered,life owes me,government assisted,useless drain on our society,snowflakes.

No of course not, it’s not about reason, or fairness, or natives even – it’s about the monolithic leviathan state swatting flies with sledge hammers to" send the message" that they are omnipotent and they can have their way with you or your property regardless of law, constitutions, charters or other feelgood placebos of the bullying globalist superstate – it’s a bout power Dave – pure, concentrated, unthinking, unreasoning, unaccountable reflexive power – power that sees danger in even the most innocuous challenge to it’s monopoly by some insolent pleb having the audacity to think that because they bought and paid for something they have control over it.

Oh yes, you can fight them in one of their kangaroo courts where they engage in mock theatrics of redress of grievance but the odds were stacked the moment you went that route, big brother never loses in his own “Just Us” systems. And if you push this “rights” thing too far they will financially and spiritually destroy you fending off successive wave after wave of malicious state persecution.

So, in a case of a small, seemingly insignificant instance, of a fellow with a personal license plate exercising (and paying for his charter right to freedom of expression) the state had a choice here – appease 2 crank complaints who had no idea what the intent of his expression was thus lacked any validity of malicious intent, and in doing so, steam rolled 36,000,000 Canadian’s charter rights into the dirt – or protect them by defending this little nobody’s right to free expression on property he paid for – what’s it gonna be Canadian authority class? BAM! Down comes the sledgehammer of the monolithic state crushing yet another fly with the impudence to believe he had a right.

He should tell them fascist snowflakes that he “Self Identifies” as a Muslim Invader and that the West will be ASSIMIL8ed!
