Doc Mailloux Rides Again

Note: Many thanks to Mailloux for providing todays blog

Remember him?


Big kerfuffle in Montreal this morning about the guy. He was interviewed for a TV show, “Les Francs Tireurs” (The Snipers), and apparently went of the deep end, so much so that the network has decided to kill the show.

According to the papers (keep in mind that no one has seen the interview, though it’ll probably end up on You Tube), he said, among other things that:

  • Women are inferior to men. Female doctors can’t handle the stress, and work less than male doctors, and if medicine becomes a more feminine profession, the level of health care will drop.
  • He would never ever work for a woman (but that’s a personal thing – he said in a radio interview this morning that he wouldn’t be able to get it up if he had been bossed around by a woman all day. Gotta give him points for honesty).
  • Michael Jackson and his sister Janet exhibit African tribal behaviours (he with the whole crotch holding thing – do they really do that in Africa? – and she by showing her boobs on national TV) and that they really have to realize they aren’t in Africa anymore*

But, to loosely quote a McGill professor: Mailloux usually says things the way they are. Women doctors tend to work less than men, smokers have a lower IQ than non-smokers, men are physically stronger than women, and thus some jobs are more suited to them (and vice versa), there are plenty of pedophiles and unfit mothers… all things people don’t want to hear.

The guy does have a point. Doc Mailloux is a firebrand. He provokes people, says whatever he thinks and, every time, lands himself on some front page or other. It’s what he does; it’s what he’s always done and will do until he dies.

But why on earth do people get so het up about it? The media just gobble it up every time. Debates ensue. People scream and yell. It’s fascinating to watch actually.

So now, probably, a few things will happen:

  • People will want him to be muzzled, he’s not PC, shut him up!**
  • Women will scream: We are not inferior doctors.
  • Blacks will scream: We do not exhibit tribal African behaviours, hell we’ve never even seen Africa. For generations.
  • Others will scream: Look at the state of health care in Quebec, he might have a point.

And this will go on for a couple of weeks until some new un-news comes up. And he will have gotten what he wanted, and the media will have gotten what they wanted, and the public will have gotten what they wanted; namely, depending on which side of the fence they sit, to prove that he should be put away for his incendiary opinions, or, conversely, that he is totally right and that’s why what he says creates such controversy.

And so the wheel turns. As we say in French : "Le ridicule ne tue pas"*** Good thing too - this place would be littered with corpses.


* News for you Doc, Africa wouldn’t want them, and is Janet Jackson the first woman to bare a boob publically? What about white women who do that and worse – Britney baring her cootchie comes to mind… As for Michael, he’s just a total freak, whatever his ethnicity.

** Me, I think the man does what he does very well, namely get himself talked about, but, really, who cares what he thinks about the place of women and blacks in society.

*** Stupidity doesn’t kill

I say that stifling him is the worst thing. Then he goes underground. If it's out in the open, we can all be entertained. And he sure seems to be entertaining! Sort of like a real life Archie Bunker.

Louis said...

Dr. Mailloux should be able to express himself. This is sad he can't.

Jazz said...

Dan - Absolutely. At least when he talks, at the very least there's the entertainment value.

Louis - Bonjour! Je vois qu'on avait le même sujet aujourd'hui. Cela dit, je suis d'accord avec toi, pourquoi le museler. Il a droit à ses opinions. Ce que trouve halluciant par contre c'est qu'on lui accorde autant d'importance.... et finalement, je suis toute aussi coupbable vu que j'en parle!

If it looks like a fruitcake and acts like a fruitcake then it probably is a fruitcake. I really don'"t know why the media want to interview him. He is obviously a mental health issue. At least he's good for a laugh, though I sometimes wonder where he got the Phd. from, it would presuppose a certain level of intelligent discourse, well then again maybe not. ;o)

Ian Lidster said...

Does he ever get any dates?

Just wondering.

Tai said...

Stupidity doesn't kill...that's GREAT!

As for the doc? Well, I agree with you jazz. Who cares what he thinks?

Jazz said...

BB - A Ph.D. does not necessarily imply overall intelligence. I think I'd rather not go there.

Ian - The man, apparently, is married. No accounting for taste I suppose. It would freak me right the fuck out to be with the likes of him.

Tai - Great, yes. But at times unfortunate... Actually, in the case of the Darwins, stupidity does kill.

Jocelyn said...

Why do people have a problem with him? He's right on.

Jazz said...

Jocelyn - It's a slow news week. The election campagin is boring and people need something to be offended about.

When were the Jacksons in Africa?

choochoo said...

By the way, are hermaphrodites (or however you spell that) inferior to anyone?

Le Docteur Mailloux est une personne très précieuse dans notre société et ce qu'il avance en ce qui concerne les manipulateurs grande catégorie , il en existe des beaucoup plus dangereux et à cet effet, on rappelera ce qui ce passe en ce moment relativement et contre une personne handicapée.
Quand nos Grands Représentants se déplacent il y a de la bisbille.
Il y a eu bel et bien continuation , par Louis MIVILLE-DESCHÊNES, envers une personne handicapée, de harcèlement criminel et vol par Terence STOROZUK, Alain VADEBONCOEUR, Mina TAKLA, par témoignage le 7 septembre 2011 devant le Palais de Justice de Montréal .
Le harcèlement criminel et vol à l'endroit d'une personne handicapée; c'est ce qui a été établi par un rapport très récent de L'IVAC ( Indémnisation des Victimes d'Acte Criminel ). D'autant plus que Louis MIVILLE-DESCHÊNES qui remplace Anne-Marie OMANN est un fait qui confirme fortement cette hypothèse de harcèlement envers une personne handicapée ou en tout cas en donne au moins l'apparence. Monsieur le Ministre Bernard KOUCHNER n'aurait pas été content de ces faits, victime d'autres faits indélicats et abusifs de la part de l'Agence des Services Frontaliers du Canada pour avoir , en juin 2010 déclaré que les membres de cette institution sont des imbéciles ( voir l'article du quotidien LE DEVOIR du 19 juillet 2010 ). Affaire surprenante en lien avec la criminalité helvétique pour en être un rouage qu'elle est, puisque l'on sait que les actes dérogatoires de l'Agence des Services Frontaliers du Canada sont allés dans le sens de paralyser une procédure criminelle par obstacle à son déroulement, devant la 13 ème Chambre correctionnelle du Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris pour avoir détourné et capté des pièces de procédure et éléments, et fait obstacles à l'accomplissement des droits de partie civile. Alors devons nous nous interroger si la criminalité helvétique via un avocat genevois qui a recelé des éléments de dossier secret de la G.R.C. du 4225, Dorchester Ouest, Montréal, ( poursuivi à Paris ) n'a pas gagné les rangs des membres de l'Agence des Services Frontaliers du Canada. Ou, est-ce que cela cache encore quelque chose de beaucoup plus grave ? Alors que va t-il se passer le 7 novembre 2011 au Palais de Justice de Montréal en salle 4.07 ? On devrait aussi demander au Docteur Mailloux ce qu'il penserait du comportement de membres de l'ASFC qui , avec un QI moins élevé que ceux du singe Bonobo qui connait 200 mots, ne savent pas lire bas ou haut sur un élément dans un transport international, ou du comportement d'un membre d'un corps de fonctionnaire annexe qui braque avec une arme de poing une personne atteinte de cancer en phase terminale lors d'actes assimilables à une invasion de domicile à 6 h 00 du matin.
