Political, media elite in Canada lecture Britons over “xenophobic” Brexit vote

Brian LilleyArchive

There are plenty of elitist Canadians lecturing and hectoring the 52% of Britons that voted to leave the EU last week.

Watch as I give you a sample of the elitist braying that’s taking place over here all because British voters chose to take back their decision making powers from nameless, faceless bureaucrats in Brussels.

The rejection of the EU is seen by many of these people as the common man being duped by xenophobic fears over immigration but is there any doubt in your mind how they’d react to Canada taking orders from anywhere outside of our country?

Actually, EL BOW would hand over Canada in a heartbeat to keep himself as our Dear Leader. Oh wait a minute. Is that not what is going on now with pandering to the UN and Islam?

Mary Auld, just what is it you are doing to help Canada? Since you say “Canadians will do NOTHING . . . they seldom do”. I am curious to learn how you would solve our issues here.

“Shhh, hear that? That’s the sound of the elites now proclaiming that referendums are UNDEMOCRATIC and that they are not a good thing because we are too stupid to figure out such complex issues.
I kid you not.”

I could not …well yes I could… the CBC Socialist yapping on this..WTF Preparing the Canadian Sheep for voting change without a referendum I says. Cause we sheep are to stupid to know what’s best……………..Canezuela

John Robb…..great insight and all true but, Canadians prefer to focus on the ‘racist’ part of the equation, it is the liberal thing to do…..when someone disagrees with you call them a ‘racist’….end of argument, they think!!! ‘Racist’ is one of the most overused words in our world and has no meaning or credibility any more. Britain is doing the right thing, time will tell.

Andy Neimers…..think you hit the nail on the head but have no fear…..Canadians will do NOTHING…they seldom ever do.

Too many people seeing this as strictly a ‘racist’ thing, particularly Canadians who are so ignorant of how the EU has been such a corrupt, dogmatic influence ….Germany has started….and LOST….two World Wars and are now responsible for the mess Europe is in with their mass migrant debacle and are well on the way to starting another war if civilized countries like Britain AND Canada don’t DO something. Britain has always showed courage when threatened….Canada would not know what the hell to do …..Britain will recover and thrive, have NO doubt about that….while Canada!!?? God knows what will become of us under the weak leadership we have at present but….being SMUG is what Canada does best so, time will tell.

So the 39% of Canadian socialists that gave us the Liberal Party are lecturing the 52% of Britains that voted to leave the EU. What’s new with that, Ehh?

Based on my previous years in the ranks of Ontario journalism, I would opine that there is a lot of deep “angst” going on in the newsrooms of Canada also because of the Brexit vote, and that the local press clubs and bars are doing a booming late night business… Canada’s press are overwhelmingly “kith and kin” with the “we know what’s best for you” press corps in Great Britain… So the “Damn You Ignorant Peasants!” curses are echoing from wall to wall to wall… The angst in the Canadian press corps is that the Brexit vote does not speak well of their blatant butt-kissing of the Liberal party here… Could those ignorant peasants actually NOT be buying their daily spin?… Could those ignorant peasants be contemplating a similar protest from sea to sea to sea?… Could those ignorant peasants feel emboldened to start sending more nasty letters to the editor?… Damn!… Time to order another round…

Hey i remember this when Harper got his majority as well, the regressive left are like spoiled children , except children have an excuse, they are too young to be mature.

Let’s see,
The EU economy is growing at a whopping 1%.
ECB QE is at about 80 billion a month and the banks are now implementing negative interest rates.
Unemployment is on the rise and youth unemployment (specially in the south) is at epidemic proportions, about 50%.
There are about six EU countries on the brink of insolvency.
Pensions are being cut all over the EU.
There is no way for an EU member state to manipulate their currency.
Member states are not allowed to subsidize their own businesses and therefore must look to import more, thus, causing native businesses to close up and take the jobs with them.
Manufacturing has declined in Britain every year since they’ve been a member.
65% of British legislation comes from the unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels.
it’s about xenophobia…no, it’s called reckless immigration policies, which, by the way, has made about 68% of households in the UK dependent on some form of social assistance!

Shhh, hear that? That’s the sound of the elites now proclaiming that referendums are UNDEMOCRATIC and that they are not a good thing because we are too stupid to figure out such complex issues.
I kid you not.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM: 31,216 Attacks, 197,791 Killed, 277,657 Injured. The reaction of our MSM to Brexit would be hilarious if it wasn’t so sad.

I can see our pm INCDOOGE imam sucking up to the eu headed by Germany and saying, we’ll join you same status as Britain was , just watch we will eventually be ruled over by Germany and their Marxist pope

I fear those stupid commentators a lot more than Brexit. I cheered Brexit and I’m hoping it is only the start………….. Those stupid self-centered morons in the press should just have a look at what the Ontario gov’t has done to democracy in this Province. OH NO……….. they will never see it; they are blinded by their entitlements.

I have no issue with idiots who pretend to be you moral and intellectual superiors – there is no shortage of chronic anal personalities these days, I take issue with the a-holes who pretend to be professional elites – like journalists.

Many years of MSM monitoring has taught me to ignore anyone who makes a point of referring to themselves as a “journalist” (I paraphrase Jim Goad here by saying) ; — most of the time you are not dealing with an inquisitive objective fact-digger but a reflexive ideologue who will mercilessly mangle facts to fit his narrative while quickly spiking any inconvenient truths which dispel it. In the Canadian MSM this morbid journalistic ideological bias approaches North Korean levels making our media nothing more than a validation device for gated community white regressives who hate being white and seem to think that coddling minority bigotry will spare them from being targets of it

Scotland and Ireland both voted for the EU. Now Scotland is demanding another referendum on Scottish Independence.

The UK will have to rebuild Adrian’s Wall, just to keep the Muslims out.

They want a re-do, too bad, it doesn’t work that way. If it did, a lot of Alberta dippers would be screwing up your order at Timmie’s right now.

Britain will pick up the ball and run with it faster than anyone can imagine now they’ve been freed of the tyranny of the elitists! They will however need to keep a tight rein on the lefties who were salivating over a communist sharia outcome for Britain!

It’s done and the people who had the right to have spoken. The rest of the interfering busybodies should respect that and move on. Say, weren’t we all cheering the dismantling of the USSR? Oh, but that’s different…

We were on an overland trip through nine Islamic countries.

One young Brit, 27 now, had gone to trades at 16 to support family and get his sisters into university. One made it to a premium college. Very well read, and during the travels always asking questions for understanding of culture. Then respected them.

He voted Brexit. Blue collar unintelligent, xenophobe to be sure. Such is the disrespect of the regressive left with no life experience, who think so.

Too bad our regressives in politics, academia, law; don’t have his innate intelligence as a blue collar.

Don’t like the Brexit result and want a re-do?… sure… right after you get a re-do on the England – Iceland match.

The leftist elites are the biggest of the hypocrites, and just plain stupid is they think they are fooling the people with their snotty comments.
