Brad Wall and the Phoney Con Refugee Scare
I like to think that in some refugee camp in the Middle East, a mother and her children have just found out that they could be in Canada in just a few weeks.
And that they are a lot happier than they are in this photo.
For they have been living in hell.
So you can imagine how I felt when I saw that Brad Wall, the Premier of Saskatchewan, the Little Con on the Prairie, the ferocious oil pimp, thinks they and 25,000 other refugees should just cool their jets.
Because he thinks they're too dangerous.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall is citing safety concerns for his wanting the federal government to suspend its plan to bring in 25,000 Syrian refugees by year's end.
"I do believe that if there's a chance that even only one person would use the refugee process to come into this country with a plan to do ill, to do bad things in Canada to Canadians, that's worth it, that's worth some circumspection," Wall said Monday at the Regina legislature.
Which only makes Wall look like a very little man, and a clear and present danger to our Canadian values.
For while there may be some good reasons to extend the deadline a bit, to make sure we're ready to receive our new arrivals, putting the program on hold would be cruel and outrageous.
Cruel because the refugees we will be bringing in are living in horrible conditions and desperate to get out.
With families who will make up about two thirds of the refugees, desperate to get their children to safety...
And others like gay men, who ISIS likes to throw off buildings...
Desperate to be accepted by any country, as soon as is humanly possible. Because even some refugee camps offer them no safe haven.
And outrageous because there is very little chance that the refugees we will be bringing in will pose any kind of terrorist threat.
The situation in Europe with its hordes of migrants on the march, and its open borders, is very different from the one in Canada. Where refugees will be properly screened, in addition to also being screened by specialized personnel in U.N. camps.
Most terrorist attacks to date have been carried out by people who were either born or raised in the country they attacked.
And refugees are among the last people to be terrorists, when they are their victims. And the ISIS crazies hate them as much or more than they hate us.
Because they believe they should be happy to live in their monstrous so-called Caliphate.
For those who want to blame the attacks on Paris on refugees, you might want to get your facts straight. The reality is, The Islamic State (IS) loathes that individuals are fleeing Syria for Europe. It undermines IS’ message that its self-styled Caliphate is a refuge, because if it was, individuals would actually go there in droves since it’s so close instead of 100,000s of people risking their lives through arduous journeys that could lead to death en route to Europe.
So by labelling the refugees a terrorist threat, Wall is only playing into the hands of the real terrorists.
And pandering to the bigots in this country, who believe that one refugee is too many.
Or sending out the wrong message to the fearful and the brutishly ignorant who would put up signs like this one in a Toronto neighbourhood...
But the most depressing part of Wall's proposal is that it would make us all look as small and as fearful as he is.
When in fact after living for almost ten years in the barbarous darkness of Harperland, many of us, myself included, are desperate to show that we still know what being a CANADIAN means.
And the refugee crisis is a golden opportunity to do just that. It is a challenge but I don't doubt that we can meet it.
I mean why did we buy those big transport planes? Let's ask Jason Kenney...
Or on second thoughts let's not. Because he was one of the ones who fuelled the bigotry problem in this country, along with his depraved leader, for crass political purposes.
And it's time we showed that we are better than them and their Cons. And that where there's a will there's a way.
And in that regard, I'm happy and proud to report that little Scotland, the other country I love, is setting a really good example.
Scotland is expecting to receive a third of the Syrian refugees due to arrive in the UK before Christmas. In a reflection of the country’s readiness in comparison to other parts of the UK, Scotland is preparing to welcome one in three of the thousand refugees David Cameron has agreed to take before the end of the year, although the Scottish government’s proportionate commitment was to take 10% of the total number.
Today the first group of refugees will be arriving in that country, and many Scots are preparing to welcome them with open arms...
And if my Scotland can do that, so can my Canada.
In fact I'm excited and happy, because I can't imagine a better or more magical Christmas story.
But I can imagine myself saying this:
Hello my poor suffering brothers and sisters, my name is Simon.
And I just want to say welcome to freedom.
Welcome to our liberated country.
Welcome to CANADA !!!!!
