  1. "Russia"... lol. No, just a Canadian who doesn't buy into US propaganda. I believe in free enterprise, with regulation to prevent PREDATORY capitalism. I don't believe you read my link. I have talked to vets. Some Canadian vets are well aware of what industrial developments they were 'protecting' in Afghanistan. We paid their salaries to act as security for industry! Predatory capitalism ... privatizing profits and socializing costs worldwide! BTW ... your English has some oddities. Are you Russian?
  2. Not too good at math?
  3. Wow! Blaming others for dirtying US hands? That's rich!
  4. Wow. Are you really that naive? You think the US 'spreads democracy'? The US only spreads the evil tentacles of predatory capitalism. 20 US vets commit suicide every day because they realize why they were really made to invade countries and kill innocent people: Profits for the wealthy. https://www.rt.com/usa/431777-us-war-veterans-suicides/ what causes the most stress and depression is realizing that all of that was for nothing…And instead of actually being for nothing – that was [so] a few rich and powerful people in the US government and corporations could extend their power further into the Middle East.”
  5. Yes you seem to speak for white nationalist ideology, a small and very fringe element of society. Don't strain yourself trying to "stand up" for the rest of us. Most of us don't share your ideology.

    Islamification of Toronto?

    All religions are suspect, imo. But we are free to participate or not as we wish. In Canada, it's the bigoted attacks on people because of their religion that are problematic.

    Canada's Refugee System in Chaos

    People say a lot of angry things when they're grieving. But facts are facts and there was no application for entry to Canada for him and his family, just for his brother and it was rejected as incomplete. It's capricorn's insincerity I'm taking issue with.

    Ford's meeting with Trudeau

    Maybe instead Harper should have improved seniors' benefits! Just a thought ...

    Ford's meeting with Trudeau

    These are people seeking asylum. They are legally entitled to a hearing. Some will be admitted to Canada, and some won't. We are not accustomed to refugees arriving on foot across our border. However, this is how refugees often arrive to other countries.

    Ford's meeting with Trudeau

    A bit of a diversion from the thread topic, but since you're throwing that allegation out there, I'd just like to point out that taking all federal and provincial governments together, NDP governments have the best fiscal record across Canada: Of the 52 years the NDP has formed governments in Canada since 1980, they’ve run balanced budgets for exactly half of those years and deficits the other half. This is a better record than both the Conservatives (balanced budgets 37% of years in government) and the Liberals (only 27%), as well as both Social Credit and PQ governments. ... the size of deficits as a share of GDP. For this measure as well, NDP governments have the best record. The average balance (deficit) as a share of provincial GDP for the 52 years of NDP governments in Canada is -0.77%, compared to -1.82% for all Liberal governments and -0.82% for all Conservative governments over the past thirty years. http://behindthenumbers.ca/2011/04/29/fiscal-record-of-canadian-political-parties-2/ While NDP and Liberal governments may both be considered socially 'progressive', they are fiscal opposites.

    Canada's Refugee System in Chaos

    That seems an odd reaction. People react with sadness to the death of a child, perhaps outrage at the circumstances that caused his death, perhaps motivating them to reach out to churches, governments, etc to see what can be done about the situation. But I don't think most people would personalize or internalize guilt for his death to that extent, nor is that helpful: That kind of personal internalization of guilt for matters out of their control just immobilizes people, renders them totally useless for any constructive purposes. I believe you're being facetious, but I just thought I'd take the opportunity to point out that that is not the common reaction, nor is it desirable or useful.

    InCel rebellion, Toronto

    Interesting development ... In the wake of the Toronto van murders, Jack Peterson was the most prominent defender of the anti-feminist ‘incels’ – until the community turned on him ... In interviews with everyone from the BBC to Vice to the Daily Beast, Peterson attempted to defend his community while denouncing the violence committed in its name. ... Despite these overt expressions of misogyny, Peterson said he had always seen them as darkly ironic. He suspected, he said, that the posters were non-violent – merely venting, and frustrated by a lack of social capital that he, too, shared. ... He tried to paint the movement as not inherently violent or sexist. The response from his own community shocked him. ... Peterson had tried to tell the world that the incels didn’t hate women – only for the incels to cry foul. “The response I got,” he says, was: “‘You’re misrepresenting us: we really do hate women. We’re not joking.’” https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jun/19/incels-why-jack-peterson-left-elliot-rodger?utm_source=FB&utm_medium=KW&utm_content=canada_specific&utm_term=28&utm_campaign=pil&kwp_0=865142&kwp_4=2949986&kwp_1=1245719 He first found InCel discussions online at 11 years of age. Hormonal pubescent boys can be ignorant, sexist and cruel in their discomfort. Most incel talk reminds me of them. Maybe much of it is them. Most boys grow out of it. But if they become tied in to such discussions, maybe they don't. I think there's a good argument to be made for making InCel sites, if not totally illegal (inciting hatred?) at least only for adults.
  13. You don't speak for "white people", taxme. You only speak for yourself and perhaps for other white nationalists, and you are a very small minority. I find it kind of humourous that you identify with "white people", when you probably wouldn't like most of us at all, and most of us would never want to be associated with a white supremacist. The white nation for white nationalists on a big white iceberg in the far north is sounding like a better idea all the time!

    I didn't mean to dismiss your experience. You're certainly not the explosive 'incels' I was talking about and that was pretty rude of her. They're not worth it.
