Clearly, you get an enormous logic error.
Can it be possible that the politically adept Kathleen Wynne has been blinded by her own white privilege? A Premier whose riding contains the densely populated Muslim neighbourhood of Thorncliffe Park? This, after the brouhaha over the Mosqueteria? Absolutely jaw-dropping.
But there is no other way to slice it, ladies and gentlemen. Kathleen Wynne has - God forbid - become indistinguishable from the culture defenders of Europe, at least, as far as the immigrants themselves are concerned. That’s why they’re so angry.
When you think about it, how is this any different from France trying to ban the hijab, or Quebec trying to prohibit religious symbols in the public service?
She is trying to make immigrants accept Canadian values by making them accept this sex-ed curriculum. Say that sentence out loud. Let the sublime irony sink in.
It may be wonderfully unintentional on her part, but then again it always is, isn’t it?
Fellow conservatives, I put it to you that there is an entirely different dimension to this sex ed curriculum issue that we’ve all missed. It isn’t just about age-appropriate teaching or parental choice. It’s about Canadian values vs. values from abroad.
It does make things awkward for us conservatives though. What are we supposed to do now?
Does Kathleen Wynne get favourable mentions in Mark Steyn’s columns? Photo-ops with Marine Le Pen? Is Kathleen Wynne the new Christopher Hitchens, the new Bill Maher, the new Sam Harris?
I mean, I love me some Liberals who get mugged by reality and become cultural conservatives, but the idea of Kathleen Wynne, conservative icon is a little too hard to get my head around. My brain, it says yes, but my heart, it says no!
Oh my God, I just had another horrible thought. What if she gets away with it?
After all, this is the same Liberal who stomped John Tory a decade ago by opposing government funding for religious schools. Where - as I can confidently say, as a graduate of a parochial religious high school - sex ed the Kathleen Wynne way is certainly not kosher. Who says she can’t pull this off, too?
And just how stupid is the PC Party of Ontario going to look if Kathleen Wynne runs on this and wins after they spent a whole leadership race twisting themselves into knots over what position they should take?
OK, OK. Don’t panic. Maybe this will open up Wynne’s left flank to the NDP.
They’re pretty good at running on all sides of an issue without anyone noticing. Maybe the NDP will turn out to be the natural home for socially conservative immigrants. That makes about as much sense as anything else!
All kidding aside, we’d better figure out what the right thing is for conservatives to do here.
When conservative Albertans got confused over who they were supposed to hold their noses and vote for, they ended up turning the country’s energy heartland over to a party who can’t imagine life without carbon taxes.
If all else fails, we could just move to Quebec. You can get all the sex and economic austerity you want there!
Except - uh oh! - we’d have to learn French, or else we’d be the ones being treated like immigrants.
