Politics (2)

In Canada, Ontario is one of the last few places left (pun so intended!) where people are still using their own brains. But like my fellow immigrants, the rising righwing tide is converting them fast too.

That was close!A subdued Hurrah! Ontario Libs dangerously live to see another term.

But the right-wing oxymoronic “Progressive Conservatives” (how can you even say that with a straight face?) managed to gain a whopping 11+ seats nevertheless.

Though the Liberals have won narrowly in these Ontarian Elections of 2011, the great 21st century dumbing down of the province continues relentlessly,

After watching bizarre phenomena like Hostages for Kidnappers (Stockholm Syndrome, et al)… or Persecuted for the Prosecutors (Jews for Jesus, et al)… or Slaves for the Masters (House Negroes, et al)… we are all witnessing, with horror, an absurd Canadian spectacle: Immigrants & Ethnics for Conservative Party (Canada’s weirdest claim to pride and joy!)

Stupid Conservative ImmigrantLet’s stop kidding ourselves: We now have a New Dumb Canadian reality, all because of my fellow immigrants and minority citizens.

My sincerest apologies, regrets and grief.

I never thought it’d be this simple for the right-wing dark side to gain so much traction in communities that should logically, ideologically, psychologically and common-sensibly be completely off limits to an anti-multicultural Con-Men’s Party whose prime base of support is the supremely racist Canadian National Lunatic Fringe!

If you’re a new immigrant citizen and not informed enough to know who to vote for, but wise enough to question1 why, here’s a quick primer from your sincerest friends

Canada Elections 2011First, a depressing caveat: With an openly racist and divisive Conservative Prime Minister fanning the flames of hatred, and a rising right-wing tide of chest-thumping bigots that’s gradually dumbing Canada down, I see larger Canadian mobs voting for Conservative Party again, so this post might as well not be written or do any good at all. You’ve been sadly forewarned.

And secondly, to answer the question: Ask not why you should not vote Conservative. Ask why are you so ill-informed or mistaken to even consider voting for a hateful right-wing loony (loony as in someone who belongs to a mental asylum, not our beloved loonie coin!)

Immigration ConsultantsThe Federal Cracking Down on Crooked Consultants Act is yet another example of genius ideas that could only originate from government committees and inter-departmental projects relying on expensive studies, funded ‘experts’ and fact finding missions to exotic locations – thus creating more work for each other and jobs for the boys.

Or may be it’s a psychological comedy play whose name cannot be uttered with a straight face: Cracking Up with Crooked Consultants – Act I… harharhar. Please!

Canada PoliticsThere’s nothing cheaper in this world than opinion on the internet. So here’s mine!

The Great Canadian Political Crisis As I See It

The Red Team’s score is tied-up with the Blue Team’s: 1-1. Game is about to finish in half an hour.

Then it starts raining. Everyone just knows that the Blue Team will lose because they never perform well in the rain.

canada electionsOh, and by the way, Canada is also going to elections. What this essentially means to me — a new immigrant in Toronto, Ontario — is probably what an election in Norway means to a Kangaroo farmer in Australia… not that Kangaroos are farmed in Australia, but who knows these things, eh? Besides, I’m not even a citizen to be able to cast a vote. Ha!

I was waiting for a bus and saw this across the street:

Two Indian-looking guys (both 30ish, real South Asian “Indian“, not “native” Indians) were standing outside an apartment building, with their backs to the Lobby. A white (40ish, ‘visible majority’) guy accompanied by a woman, came out of the lobby, sneaked up behind them, and yelled at the top of his lungs, over their heads: “Shoo!”. This startled the hell out of the two guys.
