  1. Seems to me the Liberals have been very active in involving government in social issues. And the NDP would be worse. Though I generally agree the government should be leaving most social issues alone.
  2. Were the anti-abortion types forbidden from attending and speaking to the various demonstrations and protests?
  3. So cultural appropriation depends on how good your ancestors were at fighting?
  4. Sounds like a triggering incident to me. And better make sure anyone who makes Swedish meatballs has the correct ethnic heritage and is cooking within the proper cultural context.
  5. Your belief there is anything important about cultural appropriation is at odds with reality.
  6. I don't think there's ever been a leader of any political party who is as much of a lightweight as Trudeau. Were it not for his name and looks he'd never have made anything for himself in life. His family connections have gotten him everything he has, including every job he's held.
  7. Giving an endless stream of government money to anyone who wants it, without requiring anything of them, is certainly not libertarian.
  8. Pandering and identity politics is all Trudeau knows. That and endless selfies and carefully arranged and choreographed 'candid' pictures of him, of course.
  9. Leitch wasn't rejected because of her values message but in spite of it. She had zero charisma, was not exactly likable or photogenic, not a good speaker, and makes terrible videos. The values message was the only thing that kept her from being dropped on the first ballot.
  10. They might explain why Scheer got more votes from Bernier's riding than Bernier did.
  11. But no one ever asks those devoted Muslims, Sikhs and Hindus what their views are on gay rights or abortion. Conservatives already know, and progressives prefer not to know - although of course, they DO know. But they reconcile themselves with the thought that, hey, those are just brown people. You can't expect them to have civilized views on abortion and gay rights!
  12. To progressives, anyone who holds views on social issues different from theirs is a heretic. They've taken the view that such beliefs are illegitimate, and that no one holds them aside from 'dinosaurs' or other such fringe creatures of the past. Yet most polls show that between a third to half of Canadians hold views opposing abortion, gay/transgendered rights, legalizing marijuana or favoring the death penalty. You can't simply dismiss vast numbers of people like that as somehow beyond the pale, unfit for airing in public, and not deserving of political representation. The NDP and the Liberals have become more and more narrow-focused over the years, expelling anyone who doesn't match up with an increasingly narrow group of ideological beliefs, beliefs which themselves change year by year. Remember, Chretien's government brought in a new marriage act which specifically stated that marriage was only to be between a man and a woman - because Liberal MPs rebelled at one which didn't. Now, to listen to Liberals only a dinosaur isn't in love with every aspect of an alphabet stew of gender and sexual roles. The NDP used to represent farmers out on the prairies. Now it mocks and sneers at them and their beliefs, and appeals to late' sipping tree huggers from downtown Toronto and Vancouver. At least the Conservatives remain a big tent party, which allows a wide variety of views on social and ideological issues.
  13. Who has more people with guns, the Toronto police or the Canadian army?

  14. It isn't even partially the fault of the West. Muslims have been slaughtering everyone around them since Islam came into being. The worst slaughters in human history were perpetrated by Muslims, easily outdoing Hitler and Stalin combined. Muslim historian Firishta [full name Muhammad Qasim Hindu Shah, born in 1560 and died in 1620], the author of the Tarikh-i Firishta and the Gulshan-i Ibrahim, was the first to give an idea to the medieval bloodbath that was India during Muslim rule, when he declared that over 400 million Hindus got slaughtered during the Muslim invasion and occupation of India. Survivors got enslaved and castrated. India’s population is said to have been around 600 million at the time of Muslim invasion. By the mid 1500’s the Hindu population was 200 million. https://themuslimissue.wordpress.com/2015/08/31/islamic-invasion-of-india-the-greatest-genocide-in-history/
  15. And so you think turning all of Canada into a Socialist paradise will make it a better place?
