Police believe that Lin Jun, a 33-year-old engineering student from China living in Montreal, was brutally murdered by fugitive Luka Rocco Magnotta in a twisted case that has been in the headlines in Canada all week. Lin’s body was dismembered and severed limbs were mailed to the government in Ottawa. A manhunt for Magnotta is underway.
Yeah I heard this on the news but I didn’t know the name of the victim. It’s fucking scary.
/x/ has been posting stuff all about the killer guy. he’s done a lot of other shit too, apparently.
the things you learn when you’re looking for livestreams of horror video games…………….. >_<
Yeah, the killer is definitely receiving a lot of attention, while the victim has received relatively little.
I think a lot of people are more interested in lurid, grisly details than in grasping that a Chinese man was murdered by an avowed white supremacist who was hailed on Stormfront.org for his “free speech” in defiance of “the fascism of multiculturalism”. According to the National Post, he apparently advocated a total freeze on immigration to Canada and the US and wrote that “blacks get their own countries, Chinese get their own countries … however if white people want their own countries then we are denied that right”.
Meanwhile Chinese students in Montreal have been shaken by the incident and their families are suddenly worried.
I was finding extremely weird that absolutely NOTHING was said about the victim! I mean, they are even talking about this in France and in the UK, yet this is the very first time I hear about the victim!!
Just goes to show the worth of a non-white life in the western world.
Can Quebec’s Church-based curse words survive in a secular age?
The social changes resulting from the desertion of Quebec church pews have been widely documented: smaller families, fewer marriages, a reformed education system, to name a few. The fate of religious buildings rendered obsolete has generated considerable angst.
But what, en criss, is going to happen to the province’s preferred swear words?
When francophone Quebecers whack a thumb with a hammer or get cut off in traffic, the curses that spew forth are overwhelmingly drawn from objects found in the Catholic Church: ostie, tabarnak, ciboire, câlice, criss! But a new book by a Montreal theology professor and an exhibition at a religion museum raise the question, how long can the distinctively Québécois swear words survive in a secular age?
