[NOTE: All this week, broadcaster Jerry Agar is guest hosting for Ezra Levant, who is in Israel with other Rebel correspondents.] It is a weary task to have to defend President Trump, because most of the attacks against him are hateful and dishonest. I constantly have to point out to other media people that their opinion is out of tune with you, the public.
Here at home, the same holds true with some of Prime Minister Trudeau’s policies.
Recent polling showed that Canadians, while believing that Trudeau is smarter and nicer than Trump, would pick Trump to run the economy and national security.
Canadians also want tougher vettingof refugees and immigrants, and say immigrants have an obligation to become more like the rest of us, not the other way around.
Politicians and much of the media set up a straw man argument by repeating the story of the immigrant who came with 47 cents in his pocket and built a business, sending his children to university.
That is great. Many people have lived that story.
But that has nothing to do with the people coming illegally across the border to be welcomed by RCMP, who seem to be there to carry the luggage.
We are a welcoming country to immigrants and refugees.
But illegal aliens are to immigration what shoplifters are to shopping.
And to those of you who tell the rest of us that we are Neanderthals for worrying about terrorism and illegal immigration:
Until you try to understand why Trump won, you might not be of any use.
Tonight, I’ll also share a story from Mark Towhey, who was chief of staff to former Toronto mayor Rob Ford. It’s about Toronto pot holes, but it’s really about the twisted way bureaucrats think about spending your money. I swear I’m not making it up…
Tonight’s guests: Peter Shurman, a former Progressive Conservative MPP, talks about party leader Patrick Brown, and his chances of winning the next Ontario election.
