I’d like to take a moment and apologize, on behalf of one of my countrymen. I cannot let this pass unchallenged. The attitude has irked me to no end over the years. I have met many decent folks in America, in a variety of positions; Soldiers, police, waitresses, forklift operators, insurance agents, teachers, pastors, labourers, etc who are the targets of derision and smear from some in my country. Not the first. Not the last either.
I know I don’t have to look at you uncomfortably and ask your forgiveness for his bigotry. Those of you I know are of the character and moral grounding to be forgiving without asking. Yet, I am compelled to because he shames me and dishonours many good Canadians I know that have respect and admiration for you and your country.
The arrogant, elitist bigotry in that last sentence isn’t an example of all Canadians. Just the arrogant riff-raff. As you suffer under some arrogance that would do damage to America? We have suffered the same problem in Canada. Some of which is only beginning to be brought upon you.
The writer”s opinion is a symptom of the disease of social engineering and p*nis-envy that exists in Canada’s “civilized intelligentia and smugly morally superior” circles.
I seriously question whether he has spent any time with real Americans and has just guzzled from the kool-aid vat that is funded against the will of many Canadian taxpayers through NGO’s, major media outlets (of the likes that those of us that remember the old Soviet “Evil Empire” before it collapsed) and other “social justice” groups masquerading as “benevolent”.
You might be annoyed that the Expositor published this. I would beg your indulgence that the Expositor has done you and Canadians a service by publishing it. Exposing bigotry to the light is good, as you know. It exposes cockroaches and other disease-bearing pests. Decent, right-minded people in America, like Charlton Heston and Rev Martin Luther King Jr. and newer media personalities like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Marc Levin, Andrew Breitbart and Michelle Malkin (to name a few) or a group like the NRA (who work to protect a civil right) and who work to try to right a wrong and inspire a quest for a remedy for those wronged. The writer of that foul garbage is a symptom of the disease’ regrettable continuance and perpetuation.
I’m ashamed and I apologize to you and offer some consolation concerning his beaking and chirping…
He wouldn’t last 30 seconds in a friendly game of Broom-a-loo. 😀
