Warren Kinsella: Column: oppo works – and it can work against Trump

Hate him.  The 70 per cent of Americans who self-identify as Democrats or Independents share one thing: they hate, hate, hate Donald Trump. They want him gone. Impeached, indicted, whatever. Gone. The 30 per cent of who still call themselves Republicans, however, love him. They adore him. They stick with him. No amount of controversy, ...

Warren Kinsella: School Library Journal: Recipe For Hate “a compelling and jagged read”!

  .@sljournal calls Recipe for Hate by @kinsellawarren “a compelling and jagged read.” It’s available now: https://t.co/qsIMJwVVV2 pic.twitter.com/NOdaPvY231 — Dundurn (@dundurnpress) October 30, 2017 With a title ripped from a Bad Religion song, this book does not try to hide its punk flair. X and Kurt Blank are best friends in Portland, Maine at the ...

Warren Kinsella: Trump campaign conspired with Russia: guilty plea proves it

That Robert Mueller is one crafty guy. He knew the Unpresident would say (a) the Manafort/Gates indictment doesn’t mention me or my campaign (b) they were bad guys I haven’t had any contact with in a long time, and (c) me and my campaign did nothing wrong. Mueller knew Trump would do that.  He knew. ...

Warren Kinsella: Trump’s campaign manager is indicted – for conspiring against the United States

Here is the first page of the multi-count indictment. Read it. It is extraordinary. And there can be no doubt, now, that Trump’s campaign was effectively run out of the Kremlin. Have a nice day, President Pisstape.  Your misery is just beginning, you racist, sexist sonofabitch.

Warren Kinsella: Good morning Americas! It’s #IndictmentMonday!

It will be such a good day, too!  My God Almighty, how I enjoy the misery and despair that will be unleashed today! Trumpkins being bankrupted by legal bills! Once-close Trumpsters turning on each other before grand juries! The inner circle’s mug shots living on the Internet, forever!  Make Assholes Guilty Again! Who do you ...

Warren Kinsella: BREAKING: Just got this from someone who was at today’s “deleted email” trial

The OPP, as you may recall, criminally charged two Ontario Liberals for “deleting” some emails which weren’t deleted. The guy they used to do the deleting is Pete Faist. That’s well known.  What wasn’t known until this afternoon is this: THE OPP HIRED PETE FAIST TO DO THE SAME THING FOR THEM.  From someone who ...

Warren Kinsella: Is Trudeau losing B.C.?

I don’t think so, and I said so to Mr. Nuttall at The Tyee: Political consultant and former North Vancouver Liberal candidate Warren Kinsella rejects that idea. Kinsella told The Tyee the Liberal strategy has always been to win as many seats across the board as possible. Although some “central Canadian” strategists may suggest trying ...

Warren Kinsella: Is Mr. Selfie in trouble? Is the dud a stud? Is Jagmeet dead meat?

Let us peer into the oracle that is Abacus (who, full disclosure, Daisy uses all the time, and proudly so).  It contains all sorts of interesting factoids and fun.  A chart, for your perusal: It astounds and astonishes me that Blandy Scheer is this competitive – but if Abacus says he is, then he is. ...

Warren Kinsella: #TBT: the anarchic, historic roots of Recipe For Hate, the NCNA and the Social Blemishes

Top:Herr Marchand.  Top right: Bill Corcoran and a rabble-rousing punk. It’s Thursday, which means old folks get to circulate photos of themselves when they were younger, better-looking and less preoccupied with mortgage payments. My contribution to today’s #TBT is the photo above, taken sometime in 1976.  It’s the St. Bonaventure Junior High Student Council in ...

Warren Kinsella: My #MeDo column on #MeToo is over on HuffPo now

Here it is. And here is a snippet: I have been resisting #MeToo. I have. For starters, I am generally pretty unenthusiastic about hashtag campaigns. Most of the time, they are just slacktivism, i.e. the false belief that posting something on social media is enough. It isn’t. Ever. And, most of the male responses I ...

Warren Kinsella: Recipe For Hate is being featured on Apple’s iBooks!

Check it out: Apple is promoting Recipe For Hate on their iBooks web site! My ever-patient Dundurn Press publicist, Kendra, says that Apple has decided to promote pre-orders of the book on their Sneak Peaks pages.  A short download of the book is there, too, to encourage folks to check it out. Is this a ...

Warren Kinsella: I don’t want to be yet another man writing about how #MeToo affects me

I have been resisting #MeToo.  I have. For starters, I am generally pretty unenthusiastic about hashtag campaigns.  Most of the time, they are just slacktivism – ie., the false belief that posting something on social media is enough.  It isn’t.  Ever. And, most of the male responses I have seen have been completely idiotic.  Stuff ...

Warren Kinsella: Column: when do you cease to be a country?

She’s on the bus! The second she pulls down that veil, arrest her! When do you cease to be a country?  When do you stop being a people, a nation? Romeo LeBlanc, who I loved, had an answer.  “When children sleep on the streets,” he said to us once.  “When they have nothing to eat.  ...

Warren Kinsella: You are invited to the Recipe For Hate book launch – and the SFH Kinda Suck record release!

Twenty bucks will get you the book and the record (both signed)! Ten bucks will get you the bands and a bad rash. 

Warren Kinsella: “The Charter protects all Canadians, every one of us, even when it is uncomfortable.”

Justin Trudeau said that, back in July, when he was asked about his government paying $10 million to Omar Khadr.  It’s a quote: “The Charter protects all Canadians, everyone of us, even when it is uncomfortable.” And here’s what Justin Trudeau said three months later, when the Quebec Legislature passed a racist law, a “law” ...

Warren Kinsella: There’s a political lie for every occasion

Warren Kinsella: Recipe For Hate is out!

Was just at Dundurn Press (and I’m now at the Patrician Grill to celebrate, where else) and they gave me a pile of copies of my new book, Recipe For Hate – and the good folks there told me that they’ve received a historically-huge order of the book from the US! Off to the Windsor ...

Warren Kinsella: Would you invite a neo-Nazi to your house? (Updated! Happy ending!)

Of course you wouldn’t. But Ontario’s three main political parties did. A committee comprised of all the main parties in the Ontario Legislature have given Canada’s leading white supremacist an opportunity to speak to them about abortion. I’m not making this up. Paul Fromm is one of the most notorious haters on the planet. A ...

Warren Kinsella: Dear Conservative readers of this web site 

It’s been several hours, and I still think this is the stupidest political move I’ve seen in months – and that’s saying something. Why, you ask? This isn’t a decision. It’s a suicide note. #cdnpoli https://t.co/ahrI7jT2bO — Warren Kinsella (@kinsellawarren) October 18, 2017 The Conservatives are tying themselves to every crazy/offensive thing Rebel does between ...

Warren Kinsella: Ivanka Be Sedated

SFH, meanwhile, offer this to our fellow punk rocker. Gabba gabba hey, punk grrrl!

Warren Kinsella: Why did Scheer run away from his own press event?

Seriously.  He did.  Here’s the Globe: Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer abruptly ended a news conference and stopped taking questions from reporters on Monday when asked whether he was aware his campaign manager had worked out of the Rebel office during his leadership run. Hamish Marshall, Mr. Scheer’s former campaign manager, told The Globe and Mail ...

Warren Kinsella: Recipe For Hate mania strikes Ottawa!

I’m serious.  Check out the reaction of these hundreds of total strangers to the news that Recipe For Hate  – which Publisher’s Weekly called “riveting…Tension starts high and stays there in this unflinching page-turner, which offers a fascinating glimpse into the early punk scene and a moving testament to the power of friendship” – would be ...

Warren Kinsella: This young guy in Ottawa picked up Recipe For Hate!

Nice guy. Knew a lot about current events.  Says he looks forward to reading Recipe For Hate. Told him it is getting great reviews. We had a great chat, although it was a little odd that he put both of his hands around my neck at one point. It seemed to have some historic significance. Anyway, ...

Warren Kinsella: Column: desperate politicians do desperate things

How desperate is Justin Trudeau to keep NAFTA? Ask the Mexicans, now peering out from under the proverbial bus – where, you know, Trudeau pushed them. Pretty desperate. As they welcomed the Canadian Prime Minister to Mexico City on Thursday – and as they gamely extracted the Canadian-made stainless steel that had slipped between their ...

Warren Kinsella: Did Donald Trump obstruct justice?

The Brookings Institute has just released a 108-page, single-spaced, fully-footnoted, tightly-reasoned indictment of Donald Trump. The whole document is here. At the risk of spoiling it for you, here is the key part of the conclusion:  With that caveat, our review of the facts and the law leads us to the view that the president likely ...
