Harper, Conservatives are "racist"? Then explain these immigration stats

Brian LilleyArchive

Do you get tired of people just implying, without any proof, that conservatives are racists, bigots, anti-immigrant?

This weekk, CBC engaged in this kind of drive by smear, and it wasn’t on one of their political programs. It wasn’t on a comedy show. It was on The National.

In a segment on talking to voters about the election, CBC found a young woman who is voting for the first time.

This young woman, an immigrant from Venezuela, says Canada isn’t welcoming to immigrants anymore, and that's the fault of the  current government.

This woman only came to Canada in 2010. She is already a citizen, she can vote already, in just five years.

In 2010 Canada accepted 280,687 new permanent residents, the highest number in history. That figure doesn't even include foreign students and workers.

Immigration settlement spending is also up, to almost $1 billion a year.

When my parents came to Canada, the country welcomed you but they didn’t spend piles of money to help you fit in.

Now we spend a ton of money, but the Harper government isn’t welcoming of immigrants?

Next progressives will say: Harper and the Conservatives only like white immigrants.

China, India and the Philippines are the top three source countries for Canada. Those places aren’t predominantly white, not even close.

Then we hear that Harper hates Muslims.

But the Muslim population in Canada more than doubled between the 2001 and 2011 census takings.

I’m tired off this false narrative going unchallenged.

READ Brian Lilley's book CBC Exposed -- it's been called "the political book of the year.”

The CBC: Irrelevant, arrogant, biased. It's got to go!

We seem to be getting off the topic of Danish Barbaric Cultural Practices. With 200,000 people in Canada claiming Danish background there is a lot at stake. Yes, the Harper government has spent a lot on immigrant resettlement — including Danes — but where is the corresponding spending on programmes to help in vigilance against these foreign “cultural” practices?
The RCMP hot line will certainly be welcome. I know a lot of people who will be only too happy to report on what their Danish “neighbours” are doing when they think no-one is watching.

It would seem to me that Canada’s immigration policy, for more than a decade, has been unfriendly to those who aren’t seeking to come from third-world countries. It was the same under Paul Martin, another case of the TRUE racist government “officials”… Excluding white immigrants that can speak good English, importing “visible minorities” who can barely speak English.

Julian Fantino, former OPP Commissioner, was essentially complicit with Mohawk groups in a land dispute insurgency, even detaining people for having the Canadian flag on a public-owned road.

Then they go and claim all the Muslim riff-raff they’ve brought here is about giving them “freedom”… You mean like getting arrested for having the national flag on a public road??? Muslim immigration doubled after 9/11. Bringing millions of people, who worship a 6th century pedophile warlord, is not “old stock”. The terrorism legislation was justified by their own immigration policy, now we all get surveilled, now we’re all “terrorists”, like the ones they fund in Syria.

Maybe I’ll vote for a Quebec separatist party, let them separate (kick them out), a dream since I was a kid in mandatory french class.

I’d like to know too Richard. I still maintain Harper is our only choice at the moment, but he is allowing himself to be swayed. I know he believes in some calculated immigration for growth and economic purposes, but he is sliding down a slippery slope.
We need to better prepare Canadians for the jobs we are allowing temporary workers to come in for. As well, there is no way they should be in this country for any service jobs at all, in my opinion. Why are people on pogy and welfare if there are jobs to be filled?
He keeps saying he isn’t opening the flood gates to refugees, but we have indeed let and are letting an awful lot come in. Its changing the face of our country. When hoards come in in a few short years, there is no time and less reason to assimilate, they never really become Canadians.
Multi multiculturalism has certainly back fired..

All main political parties have lost their way when it comes to immigration. The NDP, once a source of protectionism for Canadian workers now demands the most “refugees” and “migrants” to debase Canadian wages. “Conservatives” too seem happy to accept way too many “refugees” and “migrants”, taking it a step further with the Temporary Foreign Worker program (modern-day indentured servitude).

Then we got the “Liberals”, who never have given two shits about the Canadian worker, despite all their lip-service about a shrinking middle-class. Green Party is truly a red party, one could expect them to demand even more “migrants” and “refugees” than their dipper friends.

What party do I have to vote for if “refugees” and “migrants” are my top concern?

Wrong and evil. LOL.

It amazes me that people like you actually exist, but you are a great source for overdramatic comedy.

I couldn’t watch the vid, the whole thing turns my stomach. I can’t watch CBC. it makes me feel ill. What they do is really wrong and evil.

The fact of the matter is that not all conservatives are racist – but if you are racist, bigoted and homophobic, you are probably a conservative.

CBC is doing the bidding of UNITED NATIONS INC. This Venezualan girl segment is culturally-weaponized globalist propaganda.

Based on the 2010 figure… 280,000 socialist foreigners, DIVIDED BY, 365 days in the year, EQUALS, 767 socialist foreigners per day, admitted to this once great country. This is the party I voted for??? When I go to the grocery store and have burqa-clad women with baby strollers block the entrance, speaking Arabic, waiting for their BMW driving husband, now I know who to thank.

Here’s a heart-felt “Fuck You” straight from this old-stock, real-deal, born on the Niagara Ridge native. Your “moderate rebels”, “refugees”, and
“trade deals” leave MUCH to be desired.

Do not worry about this election though, your strategy is flawless… I can stay home, angry and betrayed, but you’ve got 280,000 new Conservative voters to take my place right??? Should be an easy victory, bang up job assholes.

We are now getting levels of propaganda that would even make the Nazi propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels proud. The CBC is still worse than Global. But with $1.1 Billion/year, the CBC seems to be dictating the narrative to other broadcasters.
If responsible journalism was practiced. The Conservatives would be an undisputed majority.

Funny how the parties of diversity each have another white guy from Quebec as their leaders. SO DIVERSE!!
commented 2015-10-09 00:25:04 -0400
As a conservative, considering that the USA and Canada are about the only potentially conservative-leaning countries in the world, why would you allow only Muslims, South and Central Americans, as well as Africans to move here? Did you think you’d get new voters?

You folks are starting to look like the yonug, pretty journalist girl going to Somalia to “help the poor people”, only to be kidnapped, starved, raped, held for ransom… Whatever good intentions you had have been absolutley niave, you’ve put this entire country at risk, you’ve put true conservativism at a strong disadvantage.
commented 2015-10-09 00:15:49 -0400
I gotta ask the Conservatives, are you proud that you brought 200,000 foreigners here in 2010???

Now those foreigners call you “racist” and demand to wear a burqa at your citizenship ceremony, and you ought to have known the Supreme Court would side with anti-Western muslims… Yet YOU brought them here en masse… With a promise to bring even more. Now your immigrants won’t vote for you, and after flooding the country with these types of assholes, I’m not sure why I should vote for you either.

I don’t give two shits that you got offended at your citizenship ceremony… That is perhaps the ultimate sign that you have NO clue the types of people you let into this country. I’ll vote Conservative when they act like conservatives. Until then, I’ll stay home and let you court your beloved immigrant vote.

The Global is just as bad as the CBC!
commented 2015-10-08 19:18:08 -0400
Just watched Global’s Donna Freisen cover a Syrian refugee screening story with a Liberal, NDP and Conservative spokesperson. While the Lib and Dipper parroted their party’s scripts, Donna simply smiled and nodded approvingly. When the Conservative guy started to speak she scowled then constantly interrupted and challenged everything he attempted to say while the other two chuckled and nodded. Then the three simply gang talked over him so his replies effectively blocked out. Sadly this is a constant occurrence on CTV, Global and of course the CBC. The leftist propaganda machine is indeed pervasive.

The day Peter Mansbridge retires, I will be drinking Champaign and celebrating that this communist is finally gone. But until then, I will settle for watching him weep when the conservatives win another majority!

Sorry should have read ‘provided to her youtube’.
commented 2015-10-08 17:16:03 -0400
Vlad, that link you produced to her youtube where one can leave comments (I did) also provides a link to the National Facebook page where I scrolled down and found the story as they reported, then I left a comment to the National as well.
Basically said the the CBC and especially Mansbridge should be ashamed of themselves for going along with her lies and for not fact checking. I also included ‘but then again Mansbridge never facts checks anything he report on, does he?’
commented 2015-10-08 16:59:55 -0400
I. think the Venezuelan issue is a bit like the Swedish one raised here the other day: a diversion from the very serious issue of Danish immigration and cultural practises. I may not like a Venezuelan’s views, but at least she does not threaten me and my countrymen with food poisoning.
commented 2015-10-08 16:21:12 -0400
a Venezuelan on the cbc (aka; uber leftist group think central), decrying the Canadian government as “racist” hmmmmm
quick question to the expat Venezuelan, why did you leave Venezuela? perhaps she didn’t like standing in line, in the socialist utopia, for toilet paper rations? Let’s not forget ol’ Hugo made evicting ‘non’ Venezuelans a publicity stunt after he “re patriated” (read; stole at the end of a gun barrel) various businesses. As for the mother corp, just another reason to cut the leftist leeches off the public teat

CBC has got to be dismantled! This type of misinformation, and blatant biased reporting, during a supposed “news” segment, is unacceptable! The CBC has got to go!

Kelvin I do not think the ‘dogma’ style is really the best way to shoot a propaganda video. It is a little bit too stylized.
commented 2015-10-08 15:49:20 -0400
The ignorance of my fellow Canadians boggles my mind. Recently we had an NDP with a masters degree in liberal arts who had no knowledge of Auschwitz. How can you expect liberals to know anything about immigration. They are just like Justin Trudeau, you fill them up with misinformation and turn them and let them perform. How can people this dumb understand even simple science like photosynthesis and the symbiotic relationship between plants and animals or the significance of carbon dioxide in this relationship. Of course the complexities of climate change are far beyond this yet they are willing to parrot what their political and celebrity masters tell them. IF YOU DON’T KNOW DON’T VOTE.
commented 2015-10-08 15:34:06 -0400
@ Linda and Deborah, I agree 100 percent.

“Typical socialists, they make up their own facts” that is very obvious to everyone except the socialists.

“then maybe we can shame them of their communist ways.” But the left have no shame Brian, trying to shame them would be a wasted effort.
commented 2015-10-08 15:26:26 -0400
Now that’s how you shoot a proper propaganda video……,,,,right Terry and Jimmy?
commented 2015-10-08 15:20:55 -0400
Terry, I do not know if it was intentional on your part, but ‘dogma’ is a style of film production that began in… you guessed it… Denmark.
