Census Kerfuffle

Brilliant analysis from Stephen Taylor.


If Stephen Taylor is right, and Harper et al have begun to dismantle the welfare state, then surely this is another step in that direction:

Affirmative action set for Ottawa overhaul

Affirmative action has been around long enough to accomplish whatever it was intended to do. A good twenty-five to thirty years is enough for any social engineering initiative to accomplish its goal. Any of the multitude of special victim groups who haven't pulled themselves up and made it into the mainstream economy by now, just ain't gonna do it.

The kind of blatant discrimination that existed forty or more years ago, simply does not exist today. Believe me. Mine is the generation that grew up inspired by the likes of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks. I know.  Mine was also the generation that watched the 1979 White Paper on Indian policy spark a revolution in Canada's Indian country, a revolution that within a decade had become an entrenched industry based on the ability of goons to intimidate folks into submission with political correctness and so-called "reverse" racism.

Their time is up and it's now time for these groups to play by the same rules as anyone else. (Meaning no more "Hire me just because I'm aboriginal.", or "Too bad, you're a white male. I can't hire you.") You either get the job based on your merit, or take a good long look at why you're not employable and do something to improve your employment prospects.

Well done CPC.

It's looking more and more as though there will be an election this fall. The CPC has started to speak to their base again.  The various race huckstering industries that have been feeding off the public teat for all these years will have to get real jobs and do something that is actually beneficial rather than exploitative.

Maybe that's why the decision to re-examine the need for compulsory fulfillment of the  long census form has been made. At some point we have to ask ourselves, what does it matter whether you are of the Hindu or the Buddhist faith; of Croat or Filipino ancestry? And why should the government care if you speak a language other than French or English in your home. That's your business and you're welcome to keep your language alive through your children if both you and they care enough about it. If you are here, if you are employed, or running a successful business, then we have achieved our aims. Onward!

Now let's tackle the Canadian Human Rights Gestapo.  Let's get rid of it and restore our basic freedoms, the ones that attracted immigrants here in the first place.

The fact that there is any controversy about the census long form makes me think that a Canadian Journolist will be uncovered later this year!

Hi, Robert.

Hmmmm. I don't get the connection. You must know something that I don't know. Of course, that wouldn't be surprising.

As you may have read at SDA, I'm itching to know if any CBC staffers were on the "Journolist" listserv, and if they were, what did they do? Keep silent, obviously.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if CBC journos have been conspiring amongst themselves to destroy the CPC. That particular bloodlust is so palpable y

Their reaction to the Sun Media Quebecor thing is highly entertaining. They are stark raving terrified.

Anywho, would be nice to know what it is that you know, but be careful. Somebody at CBC visits my blog almost daily. I've become a regular at Inside the CBC and I've been really socking it to the loyal groupies there who seem to think Canada wouldn't survive without a state run broadcaster, and, although they don't come right out and say it, they also seem to in full-fledged fear mood about the possibility that it might be privatized or legislated out of existence. Bring it on, I say.

Oops. Cut off a part of my omment. It should read "That particular bloodlust is so palpable you can practically smell it and see it."
