“Indian“ wins “political correctness Olympics” in college Halloween costume fight

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Friday’s episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I talked about a funny little story out of the University of Manitoba where a Halloween costume fight put a Pakistani man, African man and an Aboriginal woman at odds.


We could just laugh at this absurd story that in the end saw the Students Union apologizing for a slight against aboriginals because a student who may (or may not) have the “right” to wear an Indian headdress.

But really, we shouldn’t just laugh at this sad case of political correctness Olympics, because these are the baby politicians and baby journalists and baby activists who in a few years will be infecting the grown-up Parliament and courts and human rights commissions and newspapers.

Watch as I show you why they’re going to be a disaster...

The term should be more acurratley be described as Cultural Appreciation. I did the drawings for a kids colouring book a few years back. For the letter “I” a drew a proud, handsome man wearing an Indian head dress and the word Indian was printed on the page. Some moron complained it was racist. I suggested they just change it to Indian chief. Still unacceptable. They changed the word to ICON. So they are proud enough to call these images iconic but yet they are also racist? I believe t was a white person that complained. I also doubt most 5 year olds that had the colouring book knew what an icon was.

How come none of these people objected to Trudeau’s Bollywood audition? I certainly found it objectionable……..:-)

Even the UK Human Rights commission made a ruling that you could not tender a grievance on behalf of any group that you are not a member of.

In fact, I cannot think of a more agregious example of cultural appropriation than to appoint one’s self as agent of their grievances.

Hey… re the previous… I’m an award winning journalist of 60s vintage – environmental reporting primarily – and I’ll take on these biased flakes in an open debate any time…

“because these are the baby politicians and baby journalists and baby activists who in a few years will be infecting the grown-up Parliament and courts and human rights commissions and newspapers.”… As they indeed already are!!.. And after now three generations of journalism schools perpetuating this “selective objectivity”, it is going to take a lot of overpriced journalism “queens” on both sides of the border, losing their jobs, before their obvious bias is even going to begin to be questioned…
