Since Conservative Party Leadership hopeful Kelly Leitch unveiled her idea to run all potential immigrants through a “Canadian values” test, the Liberal elite and chattering class have been falling over one another to express their horror. It seems all the columnists and commentators for all the usual big-media outlets are working hard to outdo one another with expressions of righteous indignation. CBC’s National, unintentionally saw it’s three young media commentators get tied in ethical knots as they tried to wade through the idea that there was no such thing as real Canadian values. Huh? Doesn’t our Muppet PM and every Liberal PM before him, claim to know the truth about what one really means by “being Canadian” (read Liberal)?
As the gentle reader may have guessed by now the Old Ruminator is 100% behind the idea of running potential immigrants through a values test. But let’s not mince words here. We ARE primarily talking about Muslim immigrants. And that is because the nations from which many of these immigrants come (Pakistan, Libya, Syria, Iran, et al) are corrupt, festering hellholes of humanity, where women and gays are burned alive, stoned to death or tossed off rooftops. These immigrants’ Muslim countries hold one thing in common. They hate Christians, pagans, atheists and even other versions of Mohamed’s delusions.
A Columnist for MacLeans magazine asked this week, would we deny a Catholic immigrant who did not believe in Gay Marriage. Well, yes we would, if that Catholic believed everyone involved in the marriage, including the couple, deserved to be stoned to death.
The Old Ruminator believes there is a hidden treasure of unintended consequences flowing from the concept of a Canadian Values Test. Firstly, the questions alone will make it clear to every Muslim immigrant that Canada is not place for “more of the same” from back home. Women and gays have equal rights here. There is no such thing as “honour killings” here. We were founded on Judeo-Christian principals and our Constitution is an expression of Christian ethics. If you are a Muslim or any other religious adherent, who is not prepared to accept that fact, then see-ya-later!
Here’s the thing. Immigrants are arriving by the hundreds of thousands every year from the most corrupt countries in the world. I have met many who have not idea that most Canadians are repulsed by the “values” many of the them hold back home. If every potential immigrant was compelled to respond to a question such as “Do you believe in equal rights for men and women? Do you believe in the rights of all citizens to practice their religious beliefs free from any condemnation no matter what religion?” A serious of such questions would leave no doubt whatsoever what at least is expected of potential immigrants. Oh yes, they could lie…and likely would, but at least they can’t claim their repugnant value system somehow “strengthens” the “Canadian mosaic”.
There has been scant mention of the fact that several European nations have now adopted such a “Values” test and the sky has not fallen. They are doing it a bit late, mind you, as the horse is pretty well out of the barn in places like the Netherlands and Sweden. But Canada, while quickly becoming obsessed with all things Muslim, is still are predominately a secular/Christian nation.
So is the Old Ruminator an “angry white male”? Well, as a proud part of the demographic who essentially built this nation you’re damn right I am. Angry at the gone-soft, sycophantic, pantywaist, elitist media that has the audaciousness to assume the role of conscience of our nation.
