Generation Trudeau: Trump to impose “Taco Tax” to pay for wall?

David MenziesMission Specialist

President Trump is pushing ahead with his election promise of building a wall on the U.S-Mexico border. How he would pay for that wall has always been a hot topic, so what do members of Generation Trudeau think about rumblings of Trump imposing a so-called “Taco Tax”?

Watch as I ask students on Ryerson University campus what they would think of the idea of taxing Mexican restaurants that sell Mexican entrees, and if they’d be willing to spend the extra money for their enchiladas.

Not only do they think it’s racist, but a violation of human rights!

If I was Trump, I would round up all the illegals,put them in camps along the border and force them to build that wall.

The main reason Mexico wants a free flow of illegal immigrants is that they get underground jobs in the US and send money back to Mexico. In fact, the Mexican government gets more revenue from these transfers than it gets from its domestic oil industry. All Trump needs to do is impose a 20% Wall tax on these money transfers until the wall is paid for. Then, Mexicans directly pay for the wall out of their own pockets instead of US consumers paying for it indirectly through import taxes.

I think all Mexican food should have a burning sphincter fart tax.

@ David Menzies

You may want to put on the webpage somewhere that this is comedy so those that do not realize it don’t think it is “fake news”.

@ Thomas Ski – “This is FAKE NEWS!!!! Don’t believe it…I cannot find anything that this guy is talking about….FAKE!!!!!”

You do realize, don’t you Thomas, that this is comedy?

David Menzies does these street interviews pretending he is asking questions on a serious topic. But in fact, this whole thing was intended to be comedy.

Did you not grasp that?

One point to Thomas for doing research!

Oh Menzies, as funny as I think you are you may just be contributing to the dumbing down of the next generation. Imagine all the things you say to these people and they tell two friends, and they tell two friends, and they tell two friends…… This misinformation can’t help.

I feel sorry for the poor stupid little bastards. It’s not like it’s their fault. They may lack common sense and independent thought, but it’s a stretch to blame it all on their schooling. It is a parental responsibility to recognize the deficiencies and bullshit in the educational systems and respond accordingly – whether it’s correcting the groupthink, presenting an alternative point of view, encouraging research, confronting the teachers, or changing schools.

If Junior enters university as a clueless tit, nine times out of ten, the blame lies with the clueless tits who raised him. The conversations at the supper table and homework time can (and should) trump any bullshit spewed by Al Gore, Saint Suzuki, or the unionized drip standing at the front of your kid’s grade seven class.

Glenn Craig: Very good partial parody on “Streets of Laredo”.
For those who are not familiar with this memorable Marty Robbins rendition, here is a link:

It’s amazing that kids in a technical school are that stupid.

As I went out walking the streets of Larado…as I went out walking Larado today….I saw a bandito shot dead on the pavement …streached out on the pavement as cold as the clay. I see by his tattoos he’s a cartel gang banger…the sort of trash we don’t need here “white racists” would say…but the cop’s name who shot him is Elfago Mendoza…he’s a Trump wall supporter…what more need I say……:-)

Dale Gurton asked, "What the heck happened to independent thought or challenging an idea that sounds totally insane. "

Independent thought has been removed from our education system. Socialism and environmental activism indoctrination have replaced independent thought.

Defund Planned Parenthood and use that money.

They are turning children against their parents, and have been undermining parental authority for quite some time now. That is the ultimate with Marxists, that people breed for the state. And is why they have the absolute gall to say that they are co-parents!

Schools nowadays are full blown indoctrination camps. Concerned Canadians need to start getting involved in the education system as it has been hijacked.

Well…I watched the video and found no evidence of brain function…only indoctrinated zombies willing to take anything a person with a microphone says at face value. What the heck happened to independent thought or challenging an idea that sounds totally insane.
On the other hand…maybe this is not related to a journalist with a mic, maybe it’s because they completely believe the narrative(lies) about Trump that the MSM and our public education system has been feeding them. He’s evil….no matter what he does.
He could begin the process to reduce poverty by bringing back companies that will pay a decent wage. After all not everyone has the ability to achieve the higher education to compete for the few remaining jobs paying a living wage.
He could propose ending the bombing of the middle east and providing “safe spaces” in countries that have familiar to refugees….Dems should like the term “safe space”….allowing people to start rebuilding their lives after years of unnecessary wars.

….ah wait…he has already begun to show how evil he is by reaching out to heads of organisations and heads of wealthy/powerful countries to find solutions that actually help citizens local and abroad.
Ohhhh the horror…

WOW! An excellent example of everything that’s wrong with our education model. From elementary school thru college / university, these kids are brainwashed and turned into non-thinking zombies by brainwashed non thinking zombie academia. Their brains are ‘fried’ , they believe anything you tell them. Their only defense or brain thought is left wing socialist ‘bullet points’.
