The headline from the Liberals’ Globe & Mail division reads, “Canada aims to spread Chinese immigrants across country: McCallum.”
Liberals and leftists — especially in the media — are usually so remarkably adept at this stuff! They’re like those drug-sniffing dogs at airports… no let me start again. Liberals want to end the war on drugs. They’re like bomb-sniffing dogs at airports, only they sniff-out racism — or more accurately, “racism (wink!).” If someone (only a conservative, or Republican –firm rule!) says immigrants to Canada from a particular race or religion or from a particular country like Mexico or China should be limited or controlled in any way, even if it’s for good national security or economic reasons, it’s “extremist” and “bombastic” and moreover, “RACIST!!*1^8!!!” Ask Donald Trump about this. The airport dogs are far more polite — they just sit down and wag their tails.
But when an actual sitting Liberal government official states publically that he wishes, as a matter of official public policy, to be able to engineer the entry of certain immigrants from a certain country (increasing them), and then engineer the geographical residence of those immigrants once they’re here, it’s simply “Canada’s aim”. Potato, potato.
OK here’s a little game we can play to help you liberals: Imagine Donald Trump saying this about Chinese immigrants:
… “We would like to spread the immigrants across the country relatively evenly. The last thing we want is that every immigrant either goes to Toronto or Vancouver,” he said Wednesday. …
— Liberal Immigration Minister John McCallum, speaking about Chinese immigrants
Now imagine the reality that would follow: the liberal media exploding and the state-owned CBC literally breaking into their 14-channel (plus iPhone and Android apps! Thanks government!) Olympics saturation coverage with their haughty self-righteous breaking news of utter indignance.
It’s “the last thing we want?” Yeah why is that the last thing we want again? This is a question I boldly ask but which not a single soul in Canada’s left-wing media has even bothered or dared ask this Liberal (clue contained therein).
Why would a Liberal minister be at all concerned about this? We can imagine them in their big-government central-planning meetings, as one says to the others: There’s enough of them Chinese in the cities already! We need to spread ’em around now so they can fertilize the Canadian countryside with their Yuan! Yes I’m winking at you! They’ll vote Liberal don’t worry — they’re ex-commies, or at least they might be someday! Someone get our CBC on the horn and get ’em to do a Passionate Eye series extolling the virtues of country livin’. Well sure it’s a reversal but hells bells Justin we need them Chinese out in the farm country!
Go ahead and ponder this yearning for government central planning and control of races (or to be generous, “a certain country’s people”) — maybe just do it inside your own head so as to avoid being accidentally sniffed-out and accused of being a bombastic racist — for calling someone else one.
But in any case, no matter the race, it’s this “spreading out across Canada” notion which is the real nut. “Spread out” according to whose plan exactly? Some Liberal government know-it-all politburo in Ottawa? And “spread” these new Chinese immigrants to exactly which small towns? Do you tax the Chinese differently if they refuse to comply and cooperate, or if they move to Vancouver one hour after being “placed” in Spuzzum, BC? Do the locals have any say in this? Do the Chinese people immigrating here, where freedom of movement is a Canadian constitutional right? Paging Justin’s constitutional advisors: cleanup in aisle 6! (Actually see section 6 of our Constitution’s Charter of Rights.)
Eighth-graders — even in the liberals’ public schools division — know a policy mandate like this would be unconstitutional. You’d think a Trudeau and a Trudeau sycophant would know that. But never mind. It’s only if a conservative had said such a thing — even airily — that the media would then find the time to write-up ten stories per day about this new menace, in their high dudgeon, warning us of the egregious, extreme, bombastic, idiot politician who clearly doesn’t even understand Canada’s constitution and is obviously a buffoon. (And naturally, he’s a racist!) But this is Liberalville, here, and this is a Liberal Fest, and this is the Globe & Mail division of the Liberals.
This Liberal government desire to spread an increasing number of new Chinese immigrants out to the country is all the more strange because Liberals used to be all about gathering the sheeple into large urban centers, where the sheeple all reliably vote liberal-left, because of the influence of the massive concentration of extremely liberal media, government-sponsored everything, osmosis, sheer peer pressure, and any of a dozen other factors. (I didn’t say it was rational). The Liberal voting base, aside from immigrants generally, are the cities! Liberals have not been able to so easy rely on the suburban or rural voters — those irreverents scattered off in some far-off area not serviced by the Liberals’ CBC News division, far from official bike lanes and “social justice” and “environmental justice” centers, far from free drug injection clinics, and not next to any progressive outreach centers like the liberals’ urban public schools division. Out in the country, folks more reliably vote Conservative. So putting reliably Liberal-voting new Chinese immigrants in that space is…. oh. Hang on.
But at least it’s not racist. Right?
