The Middle sees through the fake news media.

Media is just reporting Donald's words and actions. Donald is trying to end his Presidency all on his own. And doing a pretty good job of ending it. #WorstPresidentEver

the 'danger'? What colour and creed is this phantom 'danger'?

Black, brown...Mexican, Muslim....Syrian, Saudi? What the fear du jour for you snowflakes...eh?

By far the biggest danger I see up here are ignorant racist assholes like this guy:

Sask. man behind controversial nationalist rally in Toronto | National Post

Thankfully, due to lack of interest and scared white supremacists, the march in September has been called off.

I don't read crap- and judging by the comments on that 'Zero Hedge' site, it's a site for racists and bigots- no thanks.

But here is a real article with the real reasons why so many are flooding over our borders.

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opin...ticle35896530/


But if you prefer to believe it was because our PM made a little tweet, go right ahead.

not the writers but certainly the readers seem to be.

The story was off. Smear story? Deflection No idea, but the reasons we are getting so many refugees was not because of a tweet. But whatever.

You cannot reasonably compare Canada and the US. Canada has far fewer people is far more homogenous than the US. Apples and raisins. Population-wise, Mexico has about half the population of the US. Ask how many Mexicans would trade their socialized healthcare for the US version (even if it is shit Obamacare).

I posted a couple of articles on another thread the other day. One was about the popularity of the Stars and Bars in Canada and the second was about some Canadian neo-Nazis who participated in the march in C-Ville.

First part, definitely correct, but Canada is actually more culturally diverse than the US is.


The most (and least) culturally diverse countries in the world | Pew Research Center


I live in a prairie province that was traditionally pretty much made up of either First Nations (about 10%) and 85% western European farmers and their descendants...as recently as a couple of decades ago that was the case.
Today I live in a upper middle class suburban neighbourhood and whites are in the minority. Most of my fellow Stonebridge-ites are either South Asian or Asian, Middle Eastern, or African. This huge mosque just went up right near me recently.



I'm sure some here think I should be quaking in my boots.

Just a note- the above link was about CULTURAL diversity- we are more diverse than the US culturally- but Canada is also more ethnically diverse.

Just catching up after being on vacation.

This comment is HILARIOUS. Nearly EVERY. SINGLE. CANADIAN on this forum has had, and posted, an opinion on American politics, sometimes a LOT of posts.

Be real.

I think you need to dig deeper. Canada uses different metrics to determine ethnicity that the US does.

This is interesting.

In your link, they were using numbers from 2006. Like I said, things have dramatically changed on this front in the past couple of decades. The next official census will tell a very different story.


But yes, we do use geography, as that is more accurate and less racist than just "are you brown, black, red, or white?"


regardless, this link was about ALL countries, not only US and Canada...
