Fuck. Looks like the group that supports leading candidate for the “unite the right” party slimeball Jason Kenney is paying for this waste of human skin to come up to Canuckistan.
I’m really not worried about a resurgent so-called “alt-right” in Canada, even if Kellyanne cheers them on in Alberta. Our Conservatives are, for the most part, principled. And our overall level of white supremacist sentiment seems to be lower. It also helps that our disaffected workers are, in theory, being politically represented by the NDP (although this has been in flux lately, and probably something the party of Broadbent wants to get back to, seeing the US election results).
It also comforts me to know that certain things are now basically considered the third rail in Canada, not to be touched by anyone. Universal healthcare, women’s freedom of choice in the question of abortion, and gay rights. Sure, there are fringe groups that would like to see all of these go, but they really have no chance whatsoever of seizing political power. When things go south down south, under Trump, it’s just going to bury these racist, non-Canadian value holding scumbags even deeper.
I said it before, and I’ll say it again, I have never been so happy to be Canadian, even acknowledging the horrendous economic damage a Trump presidency can potentially inflict on us, their largest trading partner.
I’m proud to be an American but there was a time earlier this month when I wished I could have been in your shoes. I imagined myself watching the news, sadly shaking my head and then happily switching over to a rerun of Corner Gas.
She’ll be warmly welcomed here in Alberta is the disgusting reality here. There’s enough of the alt-right here with the redneck rural types.
Ontario, too, it seems:
The old saying is that when America sneezes, Canada gets a cold. It applies to memes as well.
And back to Alberta:
According to police, the man, believed to be in his 60s, approached two women wearing hijabs at the University of Alberta LRT station last month, pulled a rope from his pocket, tied a noose and said, “This is for you.”
Apparently this Canadian thinks Colombians are ISIS?
Video of the attack, posted to social media, shows the suspect pointing at the family and yelling “we got terrorists here” and “ISIS,” while holding a yellow bat over his shoulder.
In the video, the suspect is seen swinging the bat several times at the victims.
A woman, her husband, their 13-year-old son and another adult, all Colombian, were walking through the parking lot speaking Spanish when they say the confrontation began.
