We know the Left are the same all over. Alberta, Ottawa, Washington and Manitoba, they don't stray from the formula of inventing pet causes to prove how tolerant they think they are while actually proving how racist they really are.
I cover the Alberta NDP a lot but I like to keep an eye on socialists all over. Today, I bring you Nahanni Fontaine, the NDP MLA for the Manitoba riding of St John’s. She’s so typically NDP. A quintessential social justice warrior who worries about things like gender neutral bathrooms and food justice. With a degree in women’s studies and critical theory from the university of Manitoba, she’s pretty much unemployable outside of leftwing politics. She was even featured in Socialism.com. Oh, And she’s a racist.
Fontaine was making some remarks in the Manitoba legislature about training aboriginal midwives and doulas and said some racist and crazy things, like this:
“And, again, for me it always comes down to indigenous women's right over their body, over their space. And so there's this movement in respect of training doulas because they're a vital component in respect of that birthing plan. And so, as the minister knows, you know, indigenous women have to come to the south to have their babies. Often, they come without any supports. They are immersed in white space.”
What is white space and why is being around white medical professionals a bad thing? When I was having my kids, the last things I cared about was the race of the medical professionals making sure we were all safe and healthy but there’s more:
“And so, you know, for women that are here alone, and that are immersed in white space, with white nurses, white doctors, it can be incredibly alienating and impact on the delivery of their baby. And so there's a group of women that have been trying, for about a year, to get a doula training program.”
Unbelievable. She’s advocating racial apartheid in Manitoba’s healthcare system. Imagine a white woman saying she didn’t want to be in the care of an aboriginal doctor? That would be racist and so is what Nahanni Fontaine said.
But where’s the media? They’re silent, but you just know, if someone from Brian Pallister’s newly elected PC government had said something so gross, so hateful, so racist, it would be in every publication in Manitoba, maybe even Canada.
The only people covering Fontaine’s hate are citizen journalists in Manitoba. And the Rebel.
