Irony Alert: Writer at taxpayer subsidized Maclean’s says “Canada is NOT a country”

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

It’s official. Canada is NOT a country.

It was right there in a headline on page 14 of the June issue of Maclean’s, a periodical that claims to be “Canada’s National Magazine.”

The author of this dreck is none other than Scott Gilmore, a.k.a., Climate Barbie Catherine McKenna’s house husband.

Watch as I give you the Reader’s Digest version of the Canada is not a country manifesto, and while you’re listening, consider the perverse irony.

Not only does his cabinet minister wife suck upon the Canadian taxpayer teat for her sustenance, so does Gilmore since Maclean’s exists due to an annual $2M taxpayer-funded welfare cheque.

In the final analysis, Canada might not be a country, but the Gilmore/McKenna household will pretend it is as long as those Government of Canada cheques continue to clear!

If Canada isn’t a country, why am I taxed by Ottawa?

Is there a stupidity contest on somewhere that only the leftists know about? It must have one heck of a first prize. People seem so zealous to enter and hopefully win whatever it is.

Andrew Stephenson no it does not and the reason is people like you and the other progressive left wing tyrants.
Common Sense good comment , that would have been my choice to answer Andrew as well.

Does Free Speech exist in Canada, or does it not?

It does not, proof in the pudding with Ezra before HRC for re-publishing a cartoon, and the islamophobia bill about to come up. You are a fool.

How did this escape your attention Andrew?!! Obviously, Scott Gilmore’s right to submit stupid articles to Maclean’s is protected….I’m free to disagree with it and call his postulations leftist regressive shite!
commented 2018-06-14 14:37:46 -0400
All knowing Andrew posted….“Does Free Speech exist in Canada, or does it not?”
I will assume that question to be rhetorical, I mean, you are continually allowed to post your rhetoric here on a constant basis.
That is the problem with all you leftist regressive fuktards, you really cant see the forest because the trees are always in the way.
Pathetic!

Maclean’s is not a news magazine. It’s a propaganda rag for the globalist Liberals.

The gov’ts flood us with the world’s immigrants for 30 years, without our approval, then say we are not a country with an identity and culture. But we have to continue following their laws, passed without our consent, and pay higher and higher taxes so that they can give it to the rest of the world and pay their lavish lifestyle and that of their friends. If only a Canadian Trump would soon show up. But I doubt it. This non-existent country is f…ed. Mostly because Canadians are too docile and polite.

I remember the Western Canada Concept political party. Have they completely dissolved?

It started to go south when Lester got in. So all of my life has been in a declining Canada. The promise my parents were trying to pass on to me was already a lie.

I think the culture will change, but we aren’t quite bouncing off the bottom yet. Conservatism is the new counter culture, and this fad utopian dream of fairy dust and inclusivity is going to fall flat very soon. Things will have developed enough shortly, to start really having an ‘awakening’ effect. If we could stop ‘evil’ when it first started it would be a beautiful world. It never happens that way. Things have to be stinking ripe,before the move to change/stop this, can be fully realised. Its not over yet. I still have hope. We will throw these bums out. The only thing they fear is losing power. Hopefully through our electoral system we still have the power to do that. If not, all bets of a peaceful outcome are off. Canada isn’t the UK. We aren’t as long suffering. We’re not boiled yet. Time to jump out of the pot.

Maclean’s is not fit to wrap fish in. It’s too slippery and toxic. As for a rudimentary test of nation hood. Not only does he not get to decide, but this has been on the leftarded agenda for decades. They want to erase all borders like the EU has done. Strangely, this EU experiment in globalism is starting to be rejected by normal people. Hence the calls from “cultural” experts in the “democratic” EU to silence populist talk radio shows.

Canadian historian Pierre Berton wrote a book years ago titled, ‘1967: The Last Good Year’ on which he mentions the changes going on in Western society as it transitioned into a “Global Village”.
The Canada of the past can be described as a Christian nation, industrious, inventive, artistic, technologically advanced, driven and compassionate, fiscally responsible and productive with a low crime rate, and its population separated by a huge geographic landmass. 95% of the population were Christian right up until the end of 1960’s. There are still elements of the way it was, found in some small towns. But that is entirely lost now in the cities.
Post modernists don’t believe in absolutes other than being absolutely right that post-modernism is absolute. Any institution or organization that portrays absolutes must be done away with if post-modernism is applied to a nation as a whole. And that includes our country.
The only way Canada will change is if people want it to change; either for the better as it used to be or the worse, which is where I think it’s headed.

Canada is not a country and has not been since 1931, that alone should be the story.
Who the heck cares about Climate barbie and her husband? We are being fleeced by a Criminal org pretending they have authority to make law, tax us, Fine us, jail us ect.
All Provinces are sovereign states and Ottawa is a fraud.

I haven’t read a MacLean’s magazine in at least 30 years, so I wouldn’t know Gilmore from Adam. However, I agree with him that Canada isn’t much of a country anymore….at least it’s only a shadow of the great Country that it was from 1939 until turdo la first came along.

As several have pointed out, what is laughable (or maddening) is the arrogant hypocrisy of pathetic little drips like Gilmore and his wife who, worse than contributing nothing to our society, work ceaselessly to destroy everything of value.

Seeing that the reigning Libtards do not believe Canada is a country perhaps the time has finally come that all Canadians collectively stop paying federal taxes and pay only taxes solely on a municipal level for services rendered. Federal tax was only brought in as a temporary measure to support the efforts during WW1 but the politicians found that they loved the monies so they did not repeal the tax but rather kept at the taxpayers’ teat ever since.

while I have absolutely NO RESPECT for Macleans, or climate barbie (what a pathetic moron she is) , I will state as I have for some time now that the FACT of the matter is, CANADA IS NOT A COUNTRY ANYMORE AND PRIMARILY BECAUSE OF JUSTIN TRUDEAU!
Therefore I am going to ask once again, WHY ARE WHAT IS LEFT OF WE CANADIANS CONTINUING TO PAY TAXES which pays the salaries/perks/pensions and for the lives of trudeau, his pro terrorist government, the lying cbc, macleans , all our anti canadian politicians, courts, law enforcement and so on?
What EXACTLY are we CANADIANS getting in return besides LIED TO, PILLAGED, THE MIDDLE FINGER, ABUSED, EXPLOITED, THREATENED, LOSS OF OUR ENTITLEMENTS, LOSS OF OUR FREEDOMS, LOSS OF OUR DEMOCRACY, LOSS OF OUR SOVEREIGNTY, LOSS OF OUR RIGHTS, RACIST ATTACKS AND BANKRUPTED SO THESE SO CALLED POLITICIANS AND THEIR NEW INVADING, ILLEGAL VOTERS CAN ALL CONTINUE TO FEED FROM THE TROUGH WE CONTINUE TO FILL DAILY BUT ARE DENIED OURSELVES?

Canada hasn’t been a nation since trudeau PURPOSELY REMOVED ALL BORDER LAWS, SECURITY, AND TOLD THE WORLD THEY ARE ALL WELCOME TO COME RAPE AND PILLAGE US!! FACT!!
SO,AGAIN, WHY ARE CANADIANS CONTINUING TO PAY FOR NOT ONLY ALL THESE ANTI CANADIAN P.O.S. BUT THE ANTI CANADIAN , RACIST, PARASITICAL , TERRORIST, CRIMINAL, INVADERS WHO ALL LIVE FAR BETTER THAN MOST OF WE WORKING CANADIANS!! ARE YOU ALL INSANE?????
GROW UP CANADA AND GROW THE BALLS AND BRAINS NEEDED TO MAKE CANADA A SAFE, SOVEREIGN, NATION ONCE AGAIN OR YOU BETTER FIND YOURSELVES ANOTHER PLACE TO CALLHOME”!

I don’t mind Mr. Gilmore expressing what is arguably a philosophical view ie: defining a country. I don’t mind that it gets published in a national magazine. I don’t mind that he is married to a cabinet minister, enjoying the privileges thereof. What I mind is that I am paying for all of it with my taxes. That I am paying for what amounts to a post in a blog is outrageous. Please Mr. Gilmore, just start your own blog, gather readers and opine all you want. Save my tax dollars for something that matters.

Indeed Mark Chadwick.. And if this kind of smartass commentary had been posted by anybody in the 1940s, as Canadians were dying every day overseas, they would have been “led around the corner” for a “quiet chat” from which they would have emerged without their nuts…

Gilmore is a perfect example of what happens to you when Climate Change causes your Nuts to Shrivel Up. Or maybe it’s just his close association with Kathy The Climate Hag, I’m sure she tends to make a lot of things shrivel up.

There are really no rights in Canada, only privileges. Oops, I forgot. The right to remain silent.

Gilmore is correct, Canada isn’t a Country if our Chicken-shit Government can’t even get a pipeline built, or the citizens can’t take beer to have with their friends and relatives 50 km away in another Province.
It shouldn’t exist as a Country when the Supreme Court has ruled that THE TRUTH DOESN’T COUNT, IF YOU HURT SOMEONE’S FEELINGS.

If we don’t do more, we are headed the way of Britain which means:
1. DEATH if you put bacon on a Mosque door handle.
2. DEATH If you report on a Muslim Rape Gang that the Newspapers already reported on

Maybe Gilmore can straighten this Country out; Andrew Scheer and his buddy Trudeau won’t even try. Scott, just leave your wife in the Cabinet Playpen.
commented 2018-06-13 23:16:57 -0400
David. I think you misinterpreted the article. I think he’s breaking ranks with his wife and the Lefty ideology and his piece is really a complaint about the Liberal’s inability to run the country.
