Carolyn Bennett, the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, supports the idea of making aboriginal studies mandatory for all Canadian university students.
Yes, mandatory, because according to Bennett, forcing kids to take such a course is all about doing the right thing. And Bennett knows a thing or two about doing the right thing, doesn’t she?
Just ask the thousands of Hep C victims who contracted the disease through no fault of their own, denied compensation by the Chretien Liberals back in 1998, including Bennett -- a medical doctor. So much for voting with one’s conscience, so much for the Hippocratic Oath and so much for “doing the right thing.”
What’s also interesting about these mandatory courses is the scant press there’s been on this somewhat chilling idea of coercing post-secondary students to study any subject.
So where’s the Media Party on this story? Well, nothing makes the media kowtow to political correctness more than reporting on aboriginal affairs. They believe the majority of Canadians are simply too dumb or too racist to weigh-in on native issues which is why the taxpayer-funded national broadcaster even prohibits comments on such stories.
What sort of Orwellian scenario is playing out here?
Between a federal minister supporting mandatory university courses and the CBC deciding not to let the great unwashed weigh-in on issues that we’re too stupid and too bigoted to opine on, the message is clear: Big government and big government media know what’s good for you, so keep your mouth shut and your wallet open.
After all, this two-headed juggernaut has an insatiable appetite for your tax dollars. Ain’t democracy grand?

The CBC actively campaigns for Justin Trudeau and the Liberals, so why should we subsidize them?
