I would like MP Singh to answer the following. I hope, on behalf of our Charter rights to freedom of thought and other rights, and Canadian values, that he answers and that someone asks him these questions. Questions. You proposed a successful motion to have the Proud Boys labelled a domestic terrorist organization. What specific elements of their organization, Charter, mandate, philosophy, ideology promotes terror? Fact Check: None. https://www.nationalobserver.com/2021/02/01/opinion/ndp-campaign-ban-proud-boys-young-voters How many members of the Proud Boys have been convicted of domestic terror charges or criminal violence for actions related to their membership in the Proud Boys organization in Canada? Fact Check: None. You claim that white nationalists killed people on the January 6th trespassing incident in a foreign country. Name the people convicted of murder. At 4:50: Fact Check: No one has been charged with murder from the trespassing incident on January 6th in Washington. Oath Keepers, not Proud Boys, have been charged, but not convicted, of sedition. No murder charges for anyone. https://www.businessinsider.com/doj-uphill-battle-prove-sedition-charges-capitol-riot-probe-2022-1 The most serious charges facing Proud Boys members is obstruction ". This does not seem in proportion to a domestic terrorist group. Also, these 4 were acting as individuals, not on an organization wide direction. The group is not responsible for individual behavior. Compare these charges to Singh's claims. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/12/28/proud-boys-members-must-face-january-6-charges-us-judge-rules Singh claims: "Given their involvement in the violence, in the undermining of democracy and the incitement of those horrible images that we saw out of Washington, D.C., I think it is very clear this is a group that should not be able to operate in Canada," said Singh. https://www.cbc.ca/radio/asithappens/as-it-happens-the-monday-edition-1.5868846/ndp-leader-calls-for-proud-boys-to-be-designated-a-terrorist-group-1.5870383 Why do you allow events in foreign countries to influence Canadian laws? Do you believe there is a problem in the white community in Canada with racism and hatred? Fact Check: MP Singh routinely makes this claim. Do you believe any other community or just the white community has a problem with racism and hate? Fact Check: MP Singh is silent on crimes of hate involving other communities. You claim that Canada has a serious problem with white racists who are a threat to the safety of non whites, name the two most dangerous white supremacist organizations in Canada. Fact Check: Canada does not have a white nationalists problem. There are no organized movements of hate involving white supremacists in Canada. How many members are in these dangerous white supremacist organizations? Fact Check: Any such organization would have membership in the dozens , not thousands, and many members would be feds and antifa. You support Bill C 229 to have kkk symbols banned in Canada. Do you believe the kkk is a serious threat to the safety of Canadians in 2022? What is your evidence? When was the last incident involving the kkk in Canada? Fact Check: The KKK has never been a threat to anyone in Canada and is not a real concern in 2022. Toronto over the past four years has had over 400 shootings each year. How many have been linked to a white supremacist organization? Fact Check: None. https://data.torontopolice.on.ca/pages/shootings Do you believe banning the Proud Boys, flags, and kkk symbols are more important than addressing gun violence by gangs? Fact Check: MP Singh makes little to no comments about gang violence. In fact, the NDP supports defending the police which would allow shooters to kill more and be caught less. https://torontosun.com/news/provincial/warmington-star-ndp-candidate-carried-f-the-police-protest-sign Most race based studies categorize people into one of three groups: White, Black, other. Stats Canada shows that other/ non whites are the most successful in Canada in terms of earnings, and an OHRC study shows that other/non whites are treated the most favorable by police and a report based on Toronto School District Board data shows "other" are the most successful. Do you believe there is systemic racism? If so, whom does this system favour? You, MP Singh, would fall under other. Is the system designed for your success as an " other"? Do you have " other privileges " ? Fact Check: https://www.policyalternatives.ca/sites/default/files/uploads/publications/National Office/2019/12/Canada's Colour Coded Income Inequality.pdf The following five groups are even with, above, or about equal to White earning power: South Asian (25% of racialized population) are at 0.96 cents Chinese (21%) are at 1.03 Arab (7%) are at 1.00 even Korean (2.5%) are at 1.53 Japanese (1.2%) are at 1.24 Approximately, 60% of non-Whites (third generation or longer) are even or above White earning power. This data is especially telling because these groups actually experienced legitimate systemic racism. Japanese Canadians who are at #2 were subjected to internment in the 1940's. 90% of Japanese Canadians were interned and they now earn more dollar than Whites. How can this be a system of oppression? How are they marginalized in 2021? Chinese Canadians were subjected to the head tax and the exclusion act which are examples of legitimate systemic racism. Now, they earn 1.03 to a White dollar. Arab Canadians are even with the White dollar despite claims of "Islamaphobia". Not all Arabs are Muslim but they are impervious to systemic racism on their ability to earn in Canada. https://edu.yorku.ca/files/2017/04/Towards-Race-Equity-in-Education-April-2017.pdf Figure 6 shows the outcomes for students at the end of the 5-year period. Within this cohort, 84% of White students had graduated from high school at the end of 5 years, compared to 87% of other racialized students. Other are graduating at a higher rate than White students. This is not evidence of systemic racism rather the contrary. https://edu.yorku.ca/files/2017/04/Towards-Race-Equity-in-Education-April-2017.pdf 4.1.c Post-secondary confirmation (university): 60% to 47% Figure 8 compares the post-secondary plans of Black and White high school students in the same cohort. As the graph shows, almost half (47%) of the White students in this cohort applied to and were accepted by an Ontario university. A larger proportion of other racialized students (60%) in this cohort applied to and were accepted by an Ontario university. The group " other " has the statistical advantage. Mr. Singh, Please advise how Chinese people make up almost 20% of Canada 'a population yet less than 6% of the incarceration rate. Why does " systemic racism " not apply to Chinese people in the justice system? Fact Check: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incarceration_in_Canada Name any law in 2022 that is racist in favour of whites. Fact Check: There are none. All provinces have Human Rights legislation that make it illegal for discrimination based on race. You claim that the media engages in systemic racism by never discussing racism by whites. Are you unaware of media like cbc, Toronto Star, ctv, global news that consistently make news stories focused on racism? At 4:55 Fact Check: Trucker rally. Subban and the flexing fight. Every news story, every day is about how " racist " white people are. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/jagmeet-singh-anti-mask-far-right-1.6020777 Mr. SINGH DO YOU DISAVOW Babbar Khalsa????? I hope someone asks this race baiting grifter anyone of these questions in question period or anywhere else.
MP Jagmeet Singh and the NDP party want you to hate white people. They want you to believe that whites are racist, hateful, and dangerous. Their latest propoganda scam is Bill C-229. As per the ndp's website: "This bill is designed to make people believe that white Canadians are racist and dangerous. The proposed bill asks to make symbols associated with the KKK, the Nazis, and the Confederate flag banned in Canada for selling and displaying. " The NDP claims that: "Bill C-229 is a tool designed to address the growing violence and hatred in Canadian communities." Of course there is no evidence to support the claim of any rising hatred in Canada. In fact, Canada remains a very welcoming and tolerant country. One of the greatest countries and best places to live in the history of humanity. Free health care to all sounds racist? Free housing and welfare to the poor regardless of race? Many newcomer programs to support immigrants from all countries is evidence of the contrary. MP Singh will be quick to cite the Quebec Mosque shooting as " evidence " of Canadians as evil racists; however, that was an isolated incident unrelated to any organization or movement. The tragedy was more likely related to mental health issues than evidence of a Canada wide problem. This bill is consistent with the NDP's agenda to promote the idea that Canadian whites are racist and a grave threat to the nation. You will remember MP Singh proposing that the Proud Boys be labelled a domestic terrorist group. This was based on no evidence of any criminal activity by the PB's in Canada. Just more race baiting hysteria by the left wing hate group, the NDP who believes CNN that the Proud Boys, with a Black leader, is a white supremacist organization. Look up Enrique Tarrio before you believe the PB's are Nazis. It starts at 4:10. At 5 :20, he makes unsubstantiated claims that white supremacists killed people on January 6th and these people are a threat in Canada too. By the way, which Proud Boy killed someone on January 6th? More fake news by Jagmeet spreading anti white lies. MP Singh claims white supremacists are a " real and urgent threat " in Canada. This is hate propoganda. Every Canadian should be outraged and insulted by Bill C 229. The KKK is a problem in Canada? How is this not absurd to any reasonably person? Name one crime linked to the KKK in Canada. Ever. The Nazi symbol. Canadians defeated the Nazis. Gave their lives to stop them and now Jagmeet comes along and suggests the people that defeated the Nazis are so evil and dangerous that laws are required to stop our love for Nazism. Give me a break. This is nonsense and simply an effort to make people hate whites by associating them with Nazis. The Confederate flag? How is a flag racist? People will argue both sides of this debate but no argument outweighs the Charter right to freedom of expression and the Confederate flag may mean many different things to many different people. Why is NDP so eager to ban groups and symbols? Didn't the Nazis love doing that? MP Singh is quiet when police, like Officer Northrup, are killed in the line of duty. His response to the alleged car attack in London is far different than the Danforth shooting. He is silent on the anniversary of Corporal Nathan Cirillo. He expressed no concern for Annie Chiu when Saad Akhtar killed her with a hammer in an act of domestic terror. There are hundreds of examples of gun crime and gang activity taking innocent lives across the country. Jagmeet....crickets... Compare gang shootings to the Quebec Mosque shooting. What does the evidence show about the real threat to security? No one wants to discuss that. Sorry. A person attacks protesters in Winnepeg with a jeep? Oh, not white? Indigenous? No comment. The list goes on. See a pattern? MP Singh only cares about crimes when the accused is white. If anyone questions the existence of " systemic racism" , MP Singh calls them a racist and so everyone plays along. His take on the truckers is beyond laughable: Singh; " It is clear that this is not a protest; this is an act to try to overthrow the government, and it is getting funded by foreign interference and we need to investigate and stop that – stop the flow of that foreign interference, particularly coming from the [United] States,” said Singh, whose party has the fourth-most seats in the House of Commons." Questions for Jagmeet...name one law in Canada that is racist??? A single one? Nothing? If systemic racism is real. How did you become a lawyer and leader of the NDP if the system is against you? By the way, Systemic racism was debunked in this article: Why are you raising your son in Canada? Are you not afraid of the KKK attacking him? What about the systemic racism??? Politicians and the media will sing along to the chorus of white Canadians as racist. Ask those at the freedom convoy. Ask Jacob Panetta. The anti white bill will be passed. People will feel vindicated that their fears of the KKK and Nazi groups being alive and well in Canada are real. Singh's message of "Whites want to kill non-whites as the KKk did in the South 100 years ago" will resonate with those living in Victim mode. This psychosis amongst so many will swell. More groups will be labelled as " white supremacist organizations " and banned as terror groups. New laws will be passed legalizing anti white discrimination and no one will do anything lest they be canceled as a racist. MP Singh will continue his racist, non factual rhetoric such as: "Radicalized white supremacists, neo-Nazis, the alt-right have resulted in the deaths of people,” he said, highlighting the threat to Canada’s Muslim, Jewish, Sikh and racialized communities. “Mothers talk to me of the fear they have for their kids going out into the community, worried about the violence they might face." Well done, Jagmeet. Your plan of hate is very effective. But, Canadians are not racist. We, of all colours, are warm, welcoming, tolerant people. You might not like white people but they did build the country you live in and where you want to raise your son. You could live anywhere in the world but you choose Canada because of how great Canadians are. One day someone will call out the emperor as naked, not wearing beautiful garb and your hateful lies will be exposed.
MP Jagmeet Singh is accusing the truckers and their supporters of being racists and Islamaphobic. This is consistent with the anti-White rhetoric that comes from the NDP leader. This is arguably hate speech under 319 of the Criminal Code. On January 9, 2022, with no evidence to support the claim that the trucker convoy and their supporters are racists and anti-Islam, he posted the following: Jagmeet Singh @theJagmeetSingh "Today we commemorate 5 years since a terrorist attacked and murdered Muslims in a Quebec City Mosque. We said never again. And, today Conservative MPs have endorsed a convoy led by those that claim the superiority of the white bloodline and equate Islam to a disease." MP Singh conflates a tragic shooting with a workers' right movement. Curiously, the NDP were once, ostensibly , the party of the worker/laborer. The leader is now villainizing the workers who unite to protest restrictions on their ability to earn. It is clear that the purpose of the above tweet is to generate hate against white people and any white people associated with the convoy. In adding the Quebec shooting to the message, the intent is to conjure feelings of fear and resentment. This is dangerous language from the Burnaby South representative. It seems to me that the above tweet is designed to breach the peace and to incite an aggressive response against those in the convoy. The message is seemingly advising people that the convoy includes violent, hateful and racist people looking to harm others which would reasonably be construed as an encouragement to breach the peace and disrupt the truckers ' protest. This is the motis operandi of Jagmeet who previously spread anti - White fear mongering. His plan is to use white guilt to gain support with white supporters and to bring non-whites to his side by making them believe whites are hateful and dangerous and all non-whites are in danger. His business model is to sell fear: "If you want to be safe, only the orange can save you! Look how dangerous and hateful the whites are!" Sound exaggerated? Juxtapose the legitimacy of the suggestion that Singh and the NDP want Canadian people to fear and hate whites with his claim that : “Radicalized white supremacists, neo-Nazis, the alt-right have resulted in the deaths of people...” The man with a law degree added: “Mothers talk to me of the fear they have for their kids going out into the community, worried about the violence they might face.” The above, which can be dismissed as bald assertions, clearly lack evidence as no murders in recent Canadian history can be linked to any " white supremacist " organization. This is pure propoganda and part of Singh's plan to divide Canada for political gain and make people hate and fear white people. This October 5, 2020 tweet by Singh is clearly is an attempt to galvanize people to resist/hate/fear white people: Jagmeet Singh @theJagmeetSingh "White Supremacy & Neo-Nazism pose a threat to our national security They export hatred & target Indigenous, Black, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh & many other racialized groups across Canada I stand with anti-hate & civil liberties groups calling on PM Trudeau to take immediate action..." Again, the attempt to breed hate is real but the facts are false. Let's look at Singh's claims. One, Alexandre Bissonnette, was not charged with terrorism or convicted of a terrorist act. Bissonnette was never linked to any white supremacist organization and was on an anti depressant which suggests that this horrific tragedy was likely linked to mental health issues more than white supremacist organizations. However, this does not match the narrative that Singh wants to sell in order to divide the country. Singh also references the Toronto stabbing of a Muslim to spread his smearing of whites. Guilherme “William” Von Neutegem was charged with the murder of a Muslim man. To date, the case is ongoing and he has not been convicted of a terrorist act or any hate crime. In addition, no link to any white supremacist organization has been proven in court. The same details apply to the London car attack on a Muslim family- no convictions, no link to any organization. However, this does not stop MP Singh from claiming that these two examples are " proof " that hateful whites are a threat to non-whites and are looking to call visible minorities! By the way, Singh openly discussing the cases and portraying the accuseds as guilty and a part of a " violent, white nationalist " movement is a violation of the accuseds' Charter right to the fundamental principles of justice, such as a fair trail and innocent until proven guilty. But, when you are spreading hate and mistruths, who cares about the Charter? The only time Singh appears interested in a crime is when the accused is white. Look at his benign response to the Danforth shooting of white teenagers by a Muslim, the killing of Marissa Shen by a Syrian refugee, the killing of Hang-Kam “Annie” Chiu by Saad Akhtar who told police his motivation was to commit a terrorist attack in the name of terror group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. When there is a conviction for a hate crime, like Akhtar, Singh is quiet because a Muslim committing a hate crime doesn't align with the business model of selling hate against whites. And when a Muslim, Umar Zameer, is charged with killing a white police officer, not much sympathy or support is expressed by the NDP leader. Don't your breath waiting for Singh to remember the anniversary of any crimes by non whites. Won't happen. Air India Flight 182 is the worst terrorist attack in Canadian history. Jagmeet and his party won't commemorate the event or remind anyone because the perpetrators were not white. Who were they? Don't ask Jagmeet. He is quiet on the topic... Of course there will be media outlets and the woke mob looking to find racism everywhere. Global news, and I'm sure cbc and ctv will follow, have an absurd article attempting to link " nazis " to the convoy. However, even global news admits the following: "A group affiliated with the convoy, Canada Unity, has produced a “memorandum of understanding” that it plans to present to Gov. Gen. Mary Simon and the Senate, and which it believes would force the government to rescind COVID-19 public health measures, or force the government to resign en masse." The people Singh and his elk attempt to link to nazi boogeyman are associated with the go fund me account, allegedly. No evidence has been presented to show there is any political ideology associated with the convoy. What if someone really was a Nazi and they organized a go find me for a cancer patient would cancer be racist? The desperate attempts of the NDP , Singh, Trudeau, the left and the media are embarrassing. No one can name a crime linked to any white nationalist group in Canada and there are no Nazis in Canada of any statistical value. Ask Reese Fallon and Hang-Kam Annie Chiu how worried they are about the white supremacist organizations in Canada. You can read how the leftist global news covered the hate crime, murder by Saad Akhtar. Their coverage focused on the murderer's mother and her opinion as to how innocent her son was. Hardly objective journalism as it didn't fit their anti white agenda: https://www.google.com/amp/s/globalnews.ca/news/6591168/man-charged-murder-hammer-attack-toronto/amp/ There are anti Asian and anti semetic and anti LGTBQ attacks but they are downplayed by Singh and others when the accused are not white. There are anti Islam attacks and ideas but the NDP are quiet on those unless the situation can be used to spread hate against whites. The NDP, and their leader's, goal is to create division and hate and who cares about the Charter, the facts, and proportionally? At what point do we hold them accountable? Can they continue to spread misinformation and engender hate against whites in perpetuity? The NDP obviously has a mandate to make people anti white. Singh was instrumental in having the proud boys named as " domestic terrorists " because of his claim that white nationalists are a threat to the nation. They are now on par with ISIS and AL Qaeda. Sure, that makes sense. Other than the minor, non violent, incident in Halifax that involved an Indigenous member of the Proud Boys, what did they do wrong exactly? Not sure but were definitely never proven to have commited violence in Canada. But don't question Singh, if you do, it proves you're a "white supremacist". Take a look at the Criminal Code and ask yourself is Singh's anti-White rhetoric is a potential crime. Public incitement of hatred 319 (1) Every one who, by communicating statements in any public place, incites hatred against any identifiable group where such incitement is likely to lead to a breach of the peace is guilty of (a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or (b) an offence punishable on summary conviction. Marginal note:Wilful promotion of hatred (2) Every one who, by communicating statements, other than in private conversation, wilfully promotes hatred against any identifiable group is guilty of (a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or (b) an offence punishable on summary conviction. In my opinion, Jagmeet Singh is clearly using misinformation to make people believe that white people are racists and hateful and that whites are organized in dangerous groups looking to enact violence based on their hateful ideals. None of which is true. The intended message of Singh is to feel negatively against whites. This is a crime as per my interpretation of the above section. What do you think?
Trump Hysteria in 2022 We are all obligated to believe that Donald Trump is evil. We are almost in 2022 and people will not stop complaining about this guy. Why? Well, he is racist to start. Okay, I hate racists, let us examine why we accept the fact that he is racist. Also, I am from Canada and I have no idea why so many Canadians feel triggered and violated by the former leader of another country. The next time you hear someone in Canada criticize Trump, please refer them to this article. Trump Refuses to Disavow White Supremacy: Debate with Joe Biden It is absurd that anyone can construe Trump’s words in the debate to mean he supports racism. He clearly answered “sure” when asked if he disavows white supremacy and then he disavowed. Anyone interpreting that response during the Biden debate to indicate that Trump supports racism makes a mockery of themselves. For those who believe that Trump has never disavowed white supremacy or racism please watch below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bd0cMmBvqWc&t=7s He also directed the Proud Boys to “stand back” which is hardly an endorsement. By the way, the Proud Boys are white supremacists based on what definition? Any specific tenet of the organization to support this claim or just CNN? Their leader, Enrique Tarrio, is black, and their founder, Gavin McInnes, is married to a Ho-Chunk woman. Gavin’s children have tribal rights and are recognized as members of the Indigenous group. PB has Latino, Black, Jewish, LGTBQ, all types of members. In Canada, the PB have been labelled as a domestic terror group although no explanation was ever provided. The only incident with the PB in Canada was in Halifax in 2017. The Halifax 5 peacefully, without violence or criminal convictions, asked why protestors wanted to destroy/remove a statue. The Halifax 5 includes a member of the LGTBQ and Indigenous community. They were military members proudly serving this country. PB, in Canada, is now labelled on the same degree of threat as ISIS and Al Qaeda- makes sense, right? You could be arrested for wearing a PB hat in Canada. Question: Why? Answer: Ummm. January 6th. The “storming” of the capital by white supremacists! Question: Was that in Canada or USA? Answer: USA Question: Did PB organize the January 6th trespassing event? Answer: No one knows but, based on CNN, probably. Question: Any convictions linking PB members to any criminal/terrorism acts on January 6th? Answer: Not as of December 2021. But still, definitely terrorists and white supremacists! Sh*T Hole Countries Firstly, this was allegedly about Haiti and some African countries. There is also no audio of what was actually said and even the most un-objective person would agree that Donald does not get any benefit of the doubt from the media on context. Anyone who has ever been to Haiti and wants to vouch for the wonderful development of this country, please raise your hand. Statistically, check out the data on Haiti. Haiti remains the poorest country in the LAC region and among the poorest countries in the world. In 2020, Haiti had a GDP per capita of US$2,925, the lowest in the LAC region and less than a fifth of the LAC average of US$15,092. On the UN's Human Development Index, Haiti ranked 170 out of 189 countries in 2020. At every standard and every measurement, it is not a successful country. Prove me wrong. https://www.worldbank.org/en/country/haiti/overview#1 Secondly, Haiti is a country. If one disparages Haiti, it is not racist. Personally, I think Detroit is a sh*t hole. Detrotians are not a race. This would not be a racist statement. Parts of Scarborough, Ontario (GTA) (see Kingston Road) are a sh*t hole. Shuter Street, in downtown Toronto, is a sh*t hole. Sudbury and Hamilton-predominantly white, are sh*t holes. These are not racist statements. Haitians could be any colour or race. Haitian is a nationality, not a race hence the absence of any racism. The comment was against the country not the people. Thirdly. And yes, it is a sh*t hole. “Mexicans are Rapists” Obviously, on its face this is egregious and offensive. Mexico has challenges as a country-corruption, crime, cartels, etc. However, Mexican people are typically religious, family-orientated, hard working, friendly and al-in-all good people. Context is important. The actual point that Trump was making was to criticize the US Visa lottery process which is based on arbitrary selection as opposed to merit. Would anyone disagree that visas should be issued to people based on their individual merit as opposed to being selected randomly? It is my understanding that this comment/allegation by Trump was also raised in another context in which Trump was referring to the coyotes who transport illegals across the border. Does anyone defend the way people are smuggled into the USA? There are reports of the women being raped and some of the people sold into human trafficking. Human smuggling is a terrible racket filled with horrible crime. If people believe that coyotes do not rape people and their vocation is an honourable one, please present your points below in the comments. Kindly use facts, not hyperbole and empty rhetoric or made up words. If the comment was made outside of these contexts and used to describe all Mexicans in all situations, it would be offensive and inappropriate. No argument. Ban on Muslims Again, a ban on Muslims is not racist as Islam is a religion, not a race. People of all races/colours are Muslims. It is also important to note that the Supreme Court agreed with Trump. I am sure the Trump haters, with their CNN and google powers, are more knowledgeable than the judges but take that up with the jurists. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/26/us/politics/supreme-court-trump-travel-ban.html Trump pulled out of wars with Muslim countries, Iraq and Afghanistan, which saved Muslim lives. He also signed the peace deals with Israel and its neighbours, Muslim countries, which has brought peace and security to the Muslim region. Trump also stopped Obama’s drone policy, arguably a war crime?, in which many Muslims were killed by drones without due process, clear identification, or any legal protection or opportunity to defend themselves against accusations. How many Muslims died under Trump’s reign compared to Obama? U.S. military forces had been at war for all eight years of Obama’s tenure, the first two-term president with that distinction. He launched airstrikes or military raids in at least seven countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan. Any pattern in the above seven? Yes, all Muslim countries. https://www.latimes.com/projects/la-na-pol-obama-at-war/ Fort Hood. Boston Marathon bombing. Pulse. Nothing like this happened on Trump’s watch. China Virus Trump was racist to call covid the china virus. It was actually universally called that in early 2020. Trump calling on a ban of travel to and from China is no different from countries banning travel to and from African countries sin December of 2021. Is it not? Trump was “racist” yet it was common place to use the term Wuhan virus or China virus. Was he following the regular term used? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eZtCq1aj2g Good People on Both Sides at Charlottesville Is it not always best practice to be objective and to have perspective? Trump said some people defending the statues and some people protesting the statues were good people. Isn't that fair? Or should everyone on one side of an argument be considered right and the others wrong? History and statues are nuanced and both sides have legitimate points. Is anyone suggesting all people defending a statue are wrong? Why should people not want to protect their history and historical figures? History is nuanced and complex. Finding middle ground by Trump seems mature and reasonable. From the videos I saw, there was good people on both sides and aggressive people on both sides. It was chaos in Charlottesville. What was wrong with this balanced approach? Rigged Election Trump is evil because he disagreed with the election results. I am not suggesting there was fraud but does anyone really have 100% confidence that Biden received over 81 million votes? He is not by any definition charismatic, eloquent, competent. JFK and Obama have charm and stage presence. Natural leaders. Obama had under 70 million votes in the historic 2008 election. Sound plausible that Biden won over 10 million more votes than Obama? Biden's leadership skills, winning personality, and affability? Not so much. He is funny, not charming, for all the wrong reasons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgC8dFmhyJQ His speeches, gatherings, events do not reflect this massive degree of 80 million people popularity, do they? His most interesting quality seems to be his comical speech pattern which is to forget what he is saying, not a trait that typically brings 80 million votes, is it? Hilary Clinton took a similar stance on Trump’s win. A year after her defeat by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton says “there are lots of questions about its legitimacy” due to Russian interference and widespread voter suppression efforts. In an interview with Mother Jones in downtown Manhattan, Clinton said Russian meddling in the election “was one of the major contributors to the outcome.” Can anyone really suggest that this conspiracy by Hilary is significantly different from what Trump did regarding his opinion on the 2020 election? How much coverage did “Russian collusion” get? It was ubiquitous yet never made sense on any level. Was the theory that Russians used Facebook to encourage people to vote for Trump or what was it? It was never explained just believed to be true that Trump’s election victory was illegitimate and Russians (ooo scary Russians) were involved! The FBI got involved to promote the idea that Trump’s win was illegitimate. The foolishness of the Steele dossier will forever disgrace the famous federal police organization. https://www.cnn.com/2021/11/18/politics/steele-dossier-reckoning/index.html “He Put Kids in Cages!” Trump put kids in cages who arrived illegally and separated children from their parents. Sure. The government has policies and process on addressing those who enter illegally which requires detainment, processing and assessing. For anyone who knows anything about correctional facilities, the jailers have the highest obligation to protect those whom they jail. Common sense suggests that children cannot be jailed with adults. If so, they are at great risk of assaults, rape, and murder. It is an unsupportable position to jail children and adults together which is why there are different sets of jails in Canada and the US for youth and adults. If he had jailed kids with adults, he would have been a monster and responsible for anything that happened to them. If he separated them and placed them in protective custody, he would be a monster for “putting them in cages”. The separation between kids and adults resulted in parents being separated from those whom they claimed to be their children. Obviously, this is not ideal. The infrastructure does not exist to provide each group arriving illegally private housing. This is the result of their parents committing crimes. President Obama’s policy was the same. Obama stated: “Don’t send your children to the borders!” He had the exact same position as Trump on people to not send their children to illegally cross the border. It is a difficult situation and one without a perfect solution. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjxay-XeSks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7cmxB16eX4 For anyone believing this to be an easy fix, check out Biden’s response. He has camps all across the border towns and under highway passes. Does this look like a better response than Trump’s? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrXvJJ6MisM Kamala Harris’s role? To research the roots of the issue. Why are they coming? Trump already answered that- see sh*t hole countries above. Ukraine was an Impeachable Offense If you really believe that the call trump had with the leader of Ukraine would warrant the entire democratic process of elections be overturned then sadly, you are dismissed from this conversation. That is absurd. By no logic does that under the legal analysis qualify as treason/impeachable offense. First Step Act Trump signed into law the First Step Act which is designed to help those with criminal records succeed upon their return into society. Many racialized people will benefit from this program. This is different from Kamala Harris who incarcerated many racialized people for drug use. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Step_Act Next Steps If you live in Canada and you hate Trump and spend hours on social media letting everyone know how much you hate him…sigh…Time to let it go. Go for a walk. Get a pet. Play Candy Crush. Swipe away on Tinder. Watch a hockey game. Turn off CNN and keep the virtue signaling to a minimum. Its not your country. Not your problem and you don’t know what you are crying about. Signed Big Jim on the Danny (Toronto) Go Leafs go!
