Liberal Insanity

Postby d0nb » Mar 7th, 2018, 4:39 pm

It’s the sort of antics you’d expect to witness on campus from first-year university students. The last place you’d hope to hear accusations of toxic terms like white privilege, male privilege and so on being tossed about is on Parliament Hill. http://torontosun.com/news/national/fur ... ament-hill

That whole story just made me want to wretch. Glad to see the Liberal MP got roasted on Twitter, and rightly so. This kind of bigotry and hatred she expressed is not welcome in this country.

Interesting to note the end of the article, something I've raised as an issue here before in some thread I started somewhere:

That if the language is so divisive, there is no longer a possibility to come together in the future:

"That’s what you get when you throw a low blow at someone, as Caesar-Chavannes did. It’s difficult to come together after such a wall has been tossed up. It needlessly divides.

Last week, Sun columnist Joe Warmington visited the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) to investigate similar concerns about the use of this weaponized language. The Sun received complaints about a series of posters that adorned campus walls calling on people to “check their privilege,” specifically targets whites, men, Christians, “cisgender” and other groups.

Rather troublingly, this wasn’t done by fringe activists but the school itself. It ended on a positive note though when Warmington spoke with a handful of non-white students, all of whom rejected the posters and spoke positively about their school environment.

Maybe Caesar-Chavannes and the powers that be at institutions such as UOIT that are peddling this divisive nonsense should take some time to talk to young people like this… if they’re willing."

Low blows have to go by the wayside if we are to reach any "coming together" on any issue.
Could it be that a whole life can shift the day one starts telling the truth about what makes one happy?

I did see this however,

Bernier, a former Conservative leadership candidate and well-known free-market advocate, was initially responding to comments posted by Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, who himself celebrated the budget as “a historic budget for racialized Canadians.” Hussen went on to applaud budget additions that included $19 million for black youth and mental health and $31.8 million for racialized newcomer women.

“I thought the ultimate goal of fighting discrimination was to create a colour-blind society where everyone is treated the same,” wrote Bernier. “Not to set some Canadians as being ‘racialized.’ What’s the purpose of this awful jargon? To create more division for the Liberals to exploit?”


Oddly enough, I am wondering what the heck and why have I ignored the budget threads for so long.

"Racialized"? What does that even mean? $19 Million for Black youth?

How is "black" going to be determined? Skin colour alone? Or genetics or family trees? Like what the ?

Yep.

Racial segregation, like sexism, used to exist as a construct to keep some factions in society on top by subverting others.

There was a time when we fought against that nonsense and pushed for equality.

But today, the primary objective is to qualify as a victim. So we can't have genuine equality getting in the way of that, can we?

You can't blame the Liberals when you examine the history of the party founder, steve harper, his nefarious past and the legacy he left for Canadians.

Most people don't know about the nefarious past of your founding member steve harper. Steve harper has links to a Neo-Nazi, skin-head group the Heritage Front and was the founding, card-carrying MEMBER of the anti-Black, pro-apartheid, KKK-styled organization, The Northern Foundation. Steve used his Northern Foundation to undermine the efforts of The Rt. Honourable Brian Mulroney to secure the freedom of the late great Nelson Mandela from his South African prison.

As the political leader of the Reform Party, steve lead the small Contingent of Canadians to try prevent our Sikh RCMP officers from wearing turbans while in uniform.

While the leader of his CPC and Prime Minister he used this power to squash the first Nations Kelowna Accords, Subjected Omar Khdar to more abuse and ignored court recommendations to bring him home. Without the star influence of George and Amal Clooney and Kelowna's own local MP Stephen Fuhr putting pressure on steve to bring Mohamad Fahmey home, steve would have let him die in an Egyptian prison. Yet, Harper bounced to the rescue of Brenda Martin, white Christian locked up in Mexico.

Harper's legacy (not mentioning his dismal economic record) has been, personal attacks on Muslim women and murderous terrorist attacks on Muslim temples.He has given a voice to the hateful right who now is the biggest threat to North American security noth and south of the border.

Now we understand the foundation of the CPC you can understand decisions of the future. Take the election of 2019 for example; After promising Canadians, especially our minority Canadians not to engage the racist pundit media internet site, The Rebel, Andrew Scheer immediately breaks his promise and hires their staff to run his 2019 election campaign. So, no matter what excellent policies get stack upon that foundation, eventually the sun is going to shine, melting the frozen foundation of *bleep*, toppling everything else to the ground.

LET THE CONSERVATIVE DOG WHISTLE POLITICS BEGIN!

1) People forget conservatives used to be fiscally conservative. After harper, they have become fiscally liberal and socially racist. Fascism is the only thing they wish to conserve.

So many buzzwords, so little substance. If you use buzzwords like that, it might be a wise idea to provide proof. Otherwise you just look like an idiot.

Here's a great article by Conrad Black about why Canada is becoming such a stupid place. Totally echoes a lot of the things I've been thinking about lately about how Canada is going to $+!+, contrary to what Tru-dope wants us all to believe.

Getting to the point where job postings will say "white, hetero males need not apply" and everyone will be okay with that.
