Liberals used to love talking about “Canadian values”? Now they call that “racist”

Rebel Staff
 

On Monday I told you about Kellie Leitch, the Conservative MP who is now running for the leadership of the party. She asked a question on her website: Should we screen would-be immigrants for Canadian values?

The media was outraged. But according to a Nanos poll, screening foreign immigrants for Canadian values is pretty much the one thing that unites our country. Every region of Canada, every age group, both sexes, support it.

The CBC reporter who specializes in reports about Justin Trudeau’s socks was especially angry at Leitch. But has he read the Broadcasting Act law that created the CBC? It says the CBC is meant to provide “programming that reflects Canadian attitudes, opinions, ideas, values and artistic creativity.”

We ban people from Canada all the time based on their beliefs. Just this summer, hundreds of political activists from around the world were banned for even a tourist visa. We single would-be visitors and citizens all the time because they supposedly don’t share “Canadian values;” look at Roosh, and Ernst Zundel.

So let’s have this “Canadian values” debate. The fancy people love open borders. But the rest of us think being Canadian means something special.

NEXT: I talk about the territorial sabre rattling what’s really going on in the South China Sea with China expert and Forbes contributor Gordon Chang. We also discuss the G20 summit in China, and some of the odd goings-on in terms of diplomacy and protocol.

THEN: Renaud Brossard is a "Generation Screwed" Quebec Spokesperson. This young libertarian was kicked off the University of Laval campus — you won't believe why. (Or maybe you will...)

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Daniel, please, do not use my name in the same breath as Anonymous. He is a troll and a low life. He would welcome the destruction of Canada if it meant he could make a fast buck in the process.

Also, it would be the same thing regardless of religion. I wouldn’t want any of the westboro baptist church idiots in Canada,either. I’m pretty sure our hate speech laws against homosexuals and disorderly conduct by picketing funerals would probably be enough to keep them out if we screened based on our laws.

There’s nothing unreasonable to screen immigrants for anti-Canadian values, as other countries around the world do the same. as a matter of fact, our laws should be a good template as to what Canadian values are. For examples, our Canadian laws are against rape and other forms of sexual assault, so see if the said immigrant believes they should be able to sexually assault and rape as they see fit. Or honor killings. it’s definitely against our law, so we can screen for an immigrant for likelihood to honor kill. I’m sure people like Anonymous and Hyacinth wouldn’t want somebody with a high likelihood of firebombing a mosque or an abortion clinic, and we don’t want the very people these people are trying to flee from(whether it’s ISIS or some other militant extremist group) to get into our country. To dny somebody for simply being Muslim is ridiculous, but to deny somebody who agrees with throwing homosexuals off tall buildings, throwing acid in womens’ faces for not being dressed a certain way, and thinks people who are of a different religion should be killed(all illegal in Canada)…………definitely don’t want in Canada.

Anonymous, you are a Liberal gift that just keeps giving. Keep posting, it proves how illiberal the Liberal party and their followers have become.

HYACINTH Sticking up for the most intolerant of the whole lot of you? Drew? HAHAHA.

“No, total fukwads like you have no shame. Now run-a-long dolt.”
“I wish the Bible thumping idiots would find another place to post their idiotic drivel.”

Interesting that the least tolerant is a Liberal. Proves once again their party name is a true oxymoron.

@len Vaness…I will address all of the journalists who raised this point in the form of a reply to you.

Many many many things in Canadian law are based on “self declaration”. When you fill out your income tax or your census or your declaration to customs to Canada Border Services…you are asked to self declare that which the government of Canada wants to know and has a legitamit need to know…..IF YOU ARE CAUGHT IN A LIE THERE IS CONSEQUENCE. If you signed your name to it you are stuck to it like fly paper.

As an employee of Veteran’s Affairs I have had occassion to send declarations to applicants attesting that they had never served Axis forces in “Foreign Armies East”…..knowing that the applicants were Jewish….Jews did serve in the armed forces of co-beligerant anti Stalin countries like Finnland.

There is nothing in what is being proposed here that is outside standard operating procedure.

Reminder to all left wingers and progressives, calling me racist or islamophobic means nothing to me nor will it silence me. Your childish antics mean nothing.

No, total fukwads like you have no shame. Now run-a-long dolt.

There is no such thing as a model or ideal Canadian. What could be more absurd than an “all Canadian” boy or girl. A society which emphasizes uniformity is one which creates intolerance and hate.

I wish the Bible thumping idiots would find another place to post their idiotic drivel.

Deborah,
Too bad we live on opposite ends of Canada, I have a number of books you probably would like to read. Let them roll their eyes Deborah, some day they will clue in on their own accord. God has a way of getting one’s attention if He wants. His timing, not ours.

“I only hope that in the end they will be able to catch the last wave of God’s grace, before this world spins totally off its axis.”
I’ve come to believe over the years that it does not matter what outwardly one professes (believes or doesn’t) because God knows. i.e.: There are many fake Christians and they will not be able to hide what is in their hearts (The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares).

Hyacinth – I’ve been reading whatever I can about the Book of Revelations, and I bet my life that we are right. I just wish I could convince my adult kids this. My daughter does believe, but she doesn’t really want to dwell on it, and her husband is an unbeliever, so that isn’t helpful. And my son is adamant that I am wrong, but then he always thinks that I’m over reacting, though he does humour me at family functions, and allows me to say grace. When I give them Christmas gifts, I always ensure their cards have a Christian message. They roll their eyes, and I just smile and tell them that I’m never going to stop trying to convert them to the truth. But then again, they have been given free will to choose. I only hope that in the end they will be able to catch the last wave of God’s grace, before this world spins totally off its axis.

“But their are consequences to freewill, and you are going to find that out, but it will be much too late to save yourself.”

Indeed, I agree Deborah. Sean, or whatever his true name is, will one day have to pay the fiddler for the tune he danced to. He may scoff now because it reads as a fairytale to him, but the day will come.

Something he should ponder:

If you (Deborah) and I are wrong and God does not exist then we have lost nothing. If Sean is wrong and God does exist then Sean will have lost more than he can imagine.

Does anyone really care about or even read what sean penson has to say? Just skip over his name and ignore him. There are too many thoughtful and intelligent posters here to be bothered with his garbage. But, I would still like a block option.

@sean Penson…

Do you really think you are funny you retarded cocks’cker?

The crass effrontery of suggesting potential Canadian immigrants should be screened for " anti-Canadian-Values " is an example of jaw-dropping Canadian xenophobia ! This type of bigotry has the libertine-progressives reaching for the smelling salts and clutching at their pearls . Such blatant intolerance needs to be prohibited , it’s blasphemous to the multi-cultural commandment of absolute moral/cultural/spiritual relativism , & all need to genuflect at that “progressive” altar.

brian Cameron Sean will get his due from the muzzies he so loves, likely they will throw his whimpering carcus off a bridge or building. You are correct those who caused all this and supported it will have there day for sure.

Sean – if they came here to live and peace and harmony, and to be productive and contributing members of society, then they are welcome. But they’ve come here to destroy our country, that was build upon Christian values, with the blessing of our traitorous governments, and their minions; the UN, the education system, the legal system, the unions, the MSM, and their workers. They don’t belong here because they came here to fulfill an evil purpose. If you read the Holy Bible you would know this, but instead you hide in your ignorance, and spread it around to destroy others. Misery does indeed love company! You’re fighting for the wrong side Sean, and it is your free will to do so. But their are consequences to freewill, and you are going to find that out, but it will be much too late to save yourself.

“There should be no borders or restrictions. If anyone wants to come, they should have that right”. Sean, that’s inane, even for you.

If all cultures are equally valid, and most support slavery, does that mean we should re-introduce slavery in Canada? If some of those coming in support slavery of people with your skin colour and a bunch of them decide you make you, personally, their slave, will you depend on the Canadian culture to protect and defend you (showing that you agree that our culture is superior and is the one you want to live under) or will you go along with them because their cultural imperatives are binding on you, too? Note that if you insist on the right to decide for yourself (by not having slavery imposed on you) then you are choosing our culture over theirs.

Whoops, didn’t make plain that my question was a rhetorical one for Jason Kenney. Too late now.

We must never force the Islamic people to our ways. That’s Islamaphobic, and should never be tolerated!

Fuck you Sean Penson. People like you are traitors to Canada. One day in the not to distant future when Canada has become like France, Canadians will fight back, revolution or revolt or whatever you want to call it. Then there will be a reckoning and the people and politicians responsible for nearly destroying our great nearly free country will get there due. That will include people like you Sean.

This is not what the CBC does – this is the line the CBC feeds to government to get their $1.4 BILLION per year and then the CBC does whatever the fuck they want.

This is marxism folks – deception is at the forefront for anything government. Not joking either.

Shebel Raj draws a distinction between “monkees” and “this bunch from the Middle East.”

It turns out that that Shebel Raj is an ugly racist, pure and simple.
