Hey! It's more politics! This time the Canuck edition, though. 

 

So we have our own Trump. His name is Kevin O'Leary and you might know him from Shark Tank or Dragon's Den. He's a rich, conceited, piece of shit just like Donald. 

 

So, Americans with Trump experience and Brits with your Brexit, what should we Canadians do? Do we talk about him? Ignore it? How do you destroy fascists in their infancy? 

 

Thanks for the advice!

Has he indicated a move into politics? God that would be wonderful to watch. I remember he had some awful things to say in the past on mad money and similar shows.

Yes, he's made it official as of this week. 

 

He conveniently decided to throw his hat in the ring the day after the French debate (despite being from Montreal, he does not speak French). 

 

He is the 15th person to throw in for the Conservative Party leadership. It's very reminiscent of your most recent election. 

 

Ugh.

Yeah, we like to think so, but we just watched your country do the impossible....

 

His response to Oxfam's report on income inequality was "that's great!" and he elaborated. His opponents are not very savoury, either. One is an awful woman named Kellie Leitch who keeps harping on about making immigrants take some kind of Canadian values test. What the fuck are Canadian values? Fuck off. 


Just checked your links, good overview of the nonsense.

Canadian values hahaha, which area will they focus on to determine what "values" are appropriate? Upper class white traditional?

Next they will suggest a poll tax.

Make Canada great again!

Yeah, our outgoing PM Harper made similar strange comments about immigration. To paraphrase, "immigrants don't know, but 'old stock' Canadians know". 

 

Like.. wait... that's pretty fucking transparent right there buddy. Old stock Canadians? So white people. Got it. 

 

He also wanted to set up a snitch line where you could call in about your neighbours' "barbarian cultural practices". If he'd won and set it up most of us were planning daily calls about the smell of our neighbours' cooking. It's barbaric! Smells like curry! Send the gestapo!

Yup, sounds exactly like post-9/11 US. Muslims have since suffered a despicable lack of privacy in the decade and a half since. I remember media pretty much saying, spy on your brown neighbors and report ANYTHING that seems suspicious to authorities. This naturally translates to anything uncommon to the western moderate Christian, so people were reporting everything down to hijabs.

I have faith. We're pretty tolerant here. Doesn't hurt that 50% of our city of 5.2 million was born outside of Canada. If you walk into a Greek business, expect to be greeted in Greek. You're in a muslim area, don't be surprised to hear only Arabic. Not a big deal, folks.

If he appears to have voter appeal, don't ignore, insult, dismiss or patronise it. Address it directly and respectfully and take the threat seriously.

Yes that's the valuable lesson here. Don't laugh it off as absurdity, treat it like a terrible episode of black mirror.

Yeah, we're mostly worried given that speaking its name seems to give it power. So we don't want to address it at all, but that said there's a ton of stupid hillbilly voters outside of the cities.
