Debunking liberal myths about mass immigration

Rebel Staff

Between the election of Donald Trump and the controversy over Kellie Leitch's proposal to screen newcomers for "Canadian values," the divide between elite opinion on immigration and that of the average citizen is now impossible to ignore.

The trouble is, much of what liberals believe about immigration simply isn't true, such as their insistence that immigrants give more to their new country than they take. 

The numbers just don't add up.

But there is an immigration policy that would work to a nation's benefit. WATCH as I explain.

Thank you Jay for nice politically incorrect summary – a topic clearly avoided by the mainstream media. In case you care, here are a couple of constructive tips from an ordinary listener like me:
1. Provide at least some source references of the information you present;
2. Talk a little bit slower.
Otherwirse, keep on disecting the falshood of the ‘benefits’ of immigration.

The elephant in the room is that the better ediucated immigrants are more likely to vote right wheras the others are more likely to vote left. The impact is magnified when it takes less than 40 per cent of voters (often only 20 per cent of eligible voters) to elect a majority government.

Jay Kelly, indeed we do stand on the shoulders of past immigrants and native born. But those were past immigrants. The current batch it is more likely we will end up standing on the ashes they create. I fear for my daughters who could be subject to rape gangs.

Indeed, and welfare jihadism has a home in Europe. Germany created the modern welfare state. And we are to believe this immigrants will end up with jobs? What a lark.

Keith, you are 100% correct. The current batch don’t come as contributors, but as takers, and in the worst case, invaders.

When 70% of rebel readers can’t pass her test. And she even suggested that people who could not pass it should. It be allowed to vote. She a nut job and needs removed from politics.

Thank You-Mr. J. Fayza—That was excellent. It really is not fair to blame the immigrants for their failures to integrate and become prosperous , taxpaying citizens. It is the stealth ,guile , lies and false promises or the Liberal ,leftie, multicultie CULT that promises them a “Nirvana of free housing ,food and money”— other wise known as a Ghetto . Talk about Deceit ,Lies and Betrayal.

Jay Kelly said, “Thank you, Rebelation!”

Rebelation was not talking to you, Jay Kelly, his comment was directed at Jay Fayza.

If you need evidence that mass immigration is bad, look no further than what happened to the Aboriginals.

For some reason my Baba and Guido never demanded anyone listen to Nestor Pistor.

Keith and Helen Harvey you got that right, they worked hard and were glad to be in a free country to prosper. I can still remember a Mexican woman being deported from Alberta when Chretin was in power, she worked 2 jobs, and they kicked her out to make it look like they were doing their jobs, meanwhile they would not kick out scumbags who leeched off of us.

Thank you Jay for another sound essay

God job Jay! Ezra has a good eye for talent. One of his many talents that’s making Rebel a success.

Bill. They suffer Lefty Psychosis, which includes backwards-brain. They think the exception is the rule, and the rule is the exception. They complicate simple things and simplify complicated things. They not afraid when they should be, but are afraid when they shouldn’t be etc etc. If you look at them through that lens for a time, I think you’ll see what I see.

U.S. President elect, Donald Trump, has used the language of elites and is certainly “elite”. It costs the taxpayers in the United States one million dollars a day to guard his fortress in New York until he moves into the White House.

That said, Jay Fayza has a good point when he says: “what liberals believe about immigration simply isn’t true, such as their insistence that immigrants give more to their new country than they take.”

We do not know for a fact that immigrants give more than they take. I certainly feel that my grandfather gave more to his adopted country than he took, but do I know that for certain?

The indigenous people at Standing Rock probably have a point. We have all been standing on the shoulders of those who were here before us.

Liberal immigration policy is as backward as their economics.

Another good one, Jay! Thanks

All they have to do is get elected and appointed to government positions by useful idiots like our own Muslim brother the math specialist Algebra. Once they have the numbers they just vote in sharia and it’s all over. The dems want to put a hardcore Muslim brother in charge of the dem party. Stupid stupid stupid.

Trudeau just couldn’t let Angela Merkel get ahead of him with the Syrian migrants, but he’s bankrupting this country. He won’t be happy until he has us all living in 3rd world conditions with all the Middle East’s animosity imported here. He doesn’t care. He has enough money to keep his own family in style.

Your idea of sucking all skilled people out of Islamic countries is recipe for disaster.
Wouldn’t it be much better to educate our native population to take care of our own and let those in Islamic countries take care of their own?
We allow people with business, medical skills and entrepreneurs immigrate to our cultures and expect the leaving nations to heal themselves.
It won’t happen as the brain drain is too great.
How about we stop all Islamic integration to our western shores, give a great push for our indigenous people to fill our vacancies, and let the third world put themselves back on their feet with whatever remaining gene pool they possess.
On a positive note, I really like your videos but, you got this one wrong,,,

I believe that our current crop of Migrants, Trudeau’s Pets and those that came before, will only be content to live off of us until there are enough of them in the Country, that they feel strong enough to over throw us. At this point, we shall be fighting for our lives.
This will, of course, be Jihad. Most people consider Jihad as just an old ideal from the Quran, most people that is, except the Muslims, who just wait patiently for the Death Cult, called Islam, to say, NOW.

According to a study by Fraser Research Institute ‘new immigrants are costing almost $40 Billion per year to Canadian Tax payers’.
There’s absolutely no benefit, socially or economically, to Canada in accepting such large numbers of immigrants & refugees from third world countries.
As Jay has rightly mentioned we should keep immigration to a very small number and that too only for highly skilled/qualified individuals who, along with their families, are sincerely committed to assimilate in Canadian society.

Jay Fayza—-I’m feeling better after your prediction of Marine LePen winning in France.

The immigrants and refugees that came to the west in decades past were nothing like the ones we have coming now. Those in the past helped to build our country and they didn’t demand Multiculturalism either, they successfully integrated, became Canadian and are the very fabric that is Canada. The new batch are violent, intolerant and have no intention of integrating or contributing to our country, but are content to live off us like parasites. In addition they carry with them, a depraved, hateful, evil ideology called Islam, and its goal is to eliminate all non Muslims. We must close our borders if we are to survive, something most European countries should have done but didn’t, now look at the state they are in. This is NOT rocket science, we just have to look at the European experience to know what will soon be our reality. Significant opposition to accepting more invaders must be presented, Islam must be banned from Canada as it has already proven that it is a serious threat to safety, security, peace and freedom. Just for us to survive in the face of this Global Islamic Threat it’s going to hurt, we will not return to what we had or were before this battle started.
