TRUMPISM IN CANADA


Recommended Posts

I guess for a Trump supporter who would like to see a separation of the states it is only consistent that he would, in turn, post dire warnings about Canada's future. It must be comforting to him to think that his neighbour to the north is in political turmoil, as well.

Canada has its share of issues but any political division is, fortunately, a far cry from that found in the United States today.

Jake loves to post comments from the Toronto Sun, a conservative organization that has long hated Liberals and Trudeau going right back to Justin's father. Of note, however, the people of Toronto and the GTA, in general, have been consistently supporting the Liberal Party in the past few elections so these Sun editorials make more of an impression upon Jake than they do Torontonians. And it's the GTA that often decides the results of federal elections.

As for the title of this thread, Trumpism in Canada, is is a joke since it is just mere wish fulfillment on the part of this thread's originator, and nothing more. The closest thing to Trumpism in Canada today is the People's Party, to which Jake loves to make right wing reference all the same, such as in his latest posting. In the election last month the People's Party failed to win a single seat in the House of Commons. Not ONE!

You will be happy to note, though, Jake, that the party is having an impact. It is splitting the right wing vote in federal elections in Canada, thereby helping to keep Justin Trudeau in power.

Canadians are at the mercy of a smug administrative state ... sad day for o Canada ...

Which country is doing a better job battling the pandemic, Canada or the U.S.? Canada is winning the battle, if slowly, while you, with your "independence" to take the vaccine, are in a major struggle with thousands of deaths from the virus, particularly in Republican states. You have made a national health crisis political, thus greater deaths.

Get your priorities straight, Jake.

I agree with the Canadian employment minister. If you can't reason with some people to take the vaccine you have to pressure them into it - if only for the betterment of the health of those around them.

YOUR FREEDOM OF CHOICE ENDS AT THE HEALTH OF OTHERS.

Canada’s War on Conscientious Doctors Revs Up
By Karen Selick

November 2, 2021

 

My family doctor closed his 47-year-old practice a few months ago. I had chosen him back in 2003 because he owned an anti-aging clinic, offering unorthodox services such as chelation therapy, intravenous vitamin drips, hair mineral analysis and acupuncture. These weren’t covered by Ontario’s (mandatory) Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), but my independent reading had convinced me that they were worth trying, so I willingly paid for them privately.

My doctor was intelligent and innovative, with a wide-ranging scientific curiosity and enthusiasm. Back in 2003, he was permitted to demonstrate this by offering eclectic treatment options tailored to individual patient needs.

However, as the years went by, I saw him getting beaten down by ever-increasing regimentation within the government healthcare system. He wrangled once or twice with government agencies, possibly OHIP or the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), and lost.

He eventually closed the anti-aging clinic, and stopped offering unconventional treatment suggestions. Over the last few years, his practice seemed to have become little more than a prescription assembly line. Watching in the waiting room, I’d see virtually every patient emerge from his office after about four minutes with a drug prescription in hand. Next!

A few times when I grumbled to him about some idiocy in the government healthcare system, he would say, “Welcome to my world.”  He had plainly lost his enthusiasm for practising this kind of medicine, so I was not surprised when he read the writing on the wall about coming vaccination mandates and threw in the towel. His prescience became apparent on April 30, when the CPSO announced its new policy forbidding doctors from making any statements that might be considered anti-vaccine, anti-masking, anti-distancing or anti-lockdowns.

This independent, conscientious professional was never going to put up with being told that he had to force all his patients to take the same treatment, regardless of their personal circumstances, when the risk of harm from COVID-19 infection is minimal for most age groups, and the evidence of vaccine injuries continues to mount.

He was not alone in his decision to withdraw from this increasingly oppressive system. Dr. Mark Trozzi, a 25-year veteran of Ontario’s healthcare system, not only closed his practice but decided to devote his time to warning the public, via his website, about the dangers of the medical tyranny that is unfolding. And in Ontario’s Grey Bruce region, Dr. Rochagné Kilian resigned her Emergency Room (ER) position due to ethical concerns. She says 80% of ER patients within the prior three months were fully vaccinated, but this information is being withheld from the public.

Meanwhile, on September 27, the CPSO ratcheted up its persecution – and no, I didn’t mean “prosecution” – of independent-minded Ontario doctors by issuing a Notice of Hearing against Dr. Patrick Phillips of Englehart. It alleges that his communications on social media regarding vaccinations, treatments, and public health measures for COVID-19 have been “misleading, incorrect, or inflammatory”.

Dr. Phillips, on his part, considers vaccine mandates shocking, even criminal. He has been deluged with requests from people seeking vaccine exemptions, people who will lose their jobs and their means of supporting their families due to vaccine mandates imposed by their employers. He describes his situation and front-line experiences eloquently in this video.

The CPSO unilaterally imposed a 12-point order on Dr. Phillips, even before he had an opportunity to present his position (supported by masses of accumulating professional evidence) through a fair hearing process. Portions of the order would be almost comical if they were not so serious. For instance, item 12 commands that Dr. Phillips “shall consent” to the CPSO providing a copy of its order to the head honchos of hospitals or clinics.

Did it never occur to the CPSO that ordering someone to consent makes a mockery of the very concept of consent?

Another prohibition imposed unilaterally upon Dr. Phillips, is that he “shall not prescribe ivermectin”. Yet a plethora of studies and testimony from highly respected experts indicates that ivermectin – a Nobel prize-winning drug – is a safe, inexpensive, and highly effective remedy, both for preventing COVID infections and for treating people after infection. This British site, for instance, contains a resource page with the latest evidence and protocols on ivermectin from around the world. The expert witnesses lined up for the Adamson Barbecue legal challenge in Ontario (especially Dr. Byram Bridle of the University of Guelph and Dr. Harvey Risch the Yale School of Medicine) also testified in sworn affidavits about the merits of ivermectin.

Dr. Phillips is not the only doctor being threatened with de-licensure by his governing body, and Ontario is not the only province making such threats. BC, Alberta, and Quebec have been placing doctors into similar straitjackets.

Benjamin Franklin warned about this stifling of independent thought more than 200 years ago: “If everyone is thinking alike, then no one is thinking,” he said.

Those who value liberty must defend the rights of courageous freethinking doctors to speak their minds without penalty from their licensing bodies or government employers.

Jordan Peterson Hammers ‘Totalitarian’ Covid Rules
RT News

November 13, 2021

Controversial psychologist Jordan Peterson has hammered the “totalitarian state” he says has emerged in response to Covid-19, angrily wondering why he ever got vaccinated if the state still won’t leave him in peace.

“I thought, all right, I’ll get the damn vaccine. But, here’s the deal, guys: I’ll get the vaccine and you f***ing leave me alone!” Peterson told podcast host Dave Rubin on Wednesday.

“And did that work? No. So, stupid me, you know?” he exclaimed. “It’s like, why did I get the vaccine then, if you’re not going to leave me alone?”

Though Peterson is vaccinated, like all Canadians he is still subject to Covid-19 testing when he travels between Canada and the US, and is still required to mask up indoors in Ontario, where he lectures at the University of Toronto. Canadians who aren’t vaccinated are prohibited from flying out of the country.

“My father isn’t vaccinated. He decided not to, partly because they were telling him he had to,” Peterson explained. “In any case, it’s extraordinarily annoying to see this happening, and to then find out that there’s nothing behind it except the most instrumental and cowardly random polling is extremely disheartening and also maddening and also angering – all of those things at once.”

With the Biden administration pushing employers to enforce a controversial and potentially vaccine mandate despite a court order freezing the rule, Peterson told Rubin that he was surprised by “how rapidly we stampeded to imitate a totalitarian state in the immediate aftermath of the release of Covid.”

Some commenters watching Peterson’s interview noted a certain irony in the prominent dissident getting vaccinated to “appease the mob” and regain his freedom, then being surprised when his freedom wasn’t given back.

Militant Leftists Have Become the Establishment
By Rachel Marsden
RT News

November 27, 2021

 

Recent remarks like those of Canadian Extinction Rebellion organizer David Suzuki, warning of eco-terrorism in defense of the leftist status quo, only serve to push an already leftist establishment agenda further to the left.

Is there ever going to be a time when the left will stop pretending that it doesn’t completely dominate the North American and Western establishment, and admit that its policies aren’t now totally mainstream?

Speaking last week at an environmental protest on Vancouver Island in the capital city of Canada’s westernmost — and arguably most environmentally active — province British Columbia, legendary long-time environmental fixture and Extinction Rebellion movement organizer, David Suzuki, addressed the assembled disciples. “We’re in deep, deep doo-doo,” Suzuki said. “This is what we’re come to. The next stage after this, there are going to be pipelines blown up if our leaders don’t pay attention to what’s going on.”

Oh, wow. How badass! How edgy! How absolutely worthy of a no-knock visit from the Canadian authorities, if such language were ever to escape from the mouth of someone associated with the political right.

You’re literally standing in a province that’s currently governed by the leftist New Democratic Party. Why not just book an appointment at your comrades’ offices instead of pretending to pose some kind of threat to their agenda?

The Extinction Rebellion movement describes itself as “a decentralised, international and politically non-partisan movement using non-violent direct action and civil disobedience to persuade governments to act justly on the Climate and Ecological Emergency.” Blowing stuff up sounds like it just might be a slight departure from the stated “non-violent” nature of the mission.

Regardless, Suzuki can shove his tough talk back into his recycled fiber fanny-pack. He’s really just pushing against an open door. The “no pipeline” crowd is already so dominant within the North American establishment itself that even US President Joe Biden is on board.

Shortly after Biden’s election, he fulfilled his campaign promise to unilaterally kill the Keystone XL pipeline project that represented a cornerstone of North American energy independence, which would have allowed the continent to reduce its reliance on foreign sources, notably in the Middle East.

This reduction in dependence would ultimately make it more difficult to justify foreign intervention in the region, thereby reducing the potential for wars – something that you’d figure someone on the left like Suzuki would support.

So, it’s those of us on the right who are stuck trying to find a way for our countries to become less dependent, more productive, and less interventionist – something that the left used to pride itself on doing. But those days are long gone. The same formerly counterculture leftists have just really morphed into a soft-handed, risk-averse, ‘scared s**tless of just about everything’ movement that talks and acts like the insecure kid in the schoolyard.

Folks like Suzuki, who hails from my hometown of Vancouver, are stymying the efforts of those who seek to reel in the establishment that they claim to be battling, while really just shadowboxing with them.

Incidentally, how do leftists figure that they’re going to be able to be kept in the manner to which they’ve become accustomed if the economy can’t support their ambitions? The anti-establishment right is butting heads with these activists who fail to link their opposition to basic infrastructure — under the pretext that it causes environmental problems at home — to the displacement of such problems to someone else’s backyard over which we (and they) will have even less control. And how exactly does that serve the common man either here or over there?

The left has weakened the democracy and basic freedoms that it once claimed to champion. Those who govern North American countries are all now forced to either bow down to an agenda long promoted by leftist interests on everything from politically correct speech to climate change, or else risk being marginalized. The left IS the establishment now. Even parties on the right have demonstrated decreased tolerance for any narratives or positions that don’t jibe with what was once considered radically leftist barely a few decades ago.

Oh, but there’s no shortage of leftists who will still tell you that true socialism hasn’t yet been tried. Which might explain why they keep pushing for it, even though the further left they push, the worse things seem to get, as their increasingly radicalized rhetoric suggests.

All of the hippy dippy tree-huggers of yesteryear are now in positions of power and cancelling pipelines, and that’s still not enough. Yesterday’s leftist comrades are no longer considered real or radical enough by their brethren, even though they’ve basically upheld their leftist promises while in positions of governance.

These outside leftists seem to be serving to shift the political spectrum even further left than it already has been, due to brainwashing via media and educational institutions that have been pushing leftist talking points over the past few decades. Their tactics have now mass produced the kind of ideological domination in various positions of authority that they relentlessly sought.

So please, spare us the tough guy acts. You’re not fooling anyone except fools. We, on the right, are the anti-establishment counterculture now.

One of the funniest and best self-owns of 2021 (so far) was racist “antiracist” huckster and hustler Ibram Kendi tweeting and then deleting a report about how many white people are identifying as “people of color” for better professional treatment and unearned advancement.

This is something that we see rather often. Think Rachel Dolezal, think that infamous Native American faker Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

We can now add Carrie Bourassa, the now-former scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health, to this illustrious list of people pretending to be other races. Why do they do this? Because ‘white privilege’ is a complete lie. The only ‘privilege’ is being or pretending to be a black person or a Native American. Or in being an Antifa/BLM arsonist, looter, vandal, assailant, and/or murderer, but I digress.
