GUNTER: A textbook for school children that the Liberals are funding is propaganda

Content of the article

According to the website Blacklock JournalistOn Wednesday, the federal cabinet approved a quarter of a million dollars for a group called the Canadian Anti-Hate Network to produce propaganda for school children that seeks to demonize conservative parties in Canada as hotbeds for white nationalists and other racists.

The group’s forthcoming publication, Confronting and Preventing Hate in Canadian Schools, which will be distributed to young people across the country, encourages them to see the pre-1965 Canadian flag, the Red Ensign, as a symbol of hate and affirms – no not once, but twice – the Conservative Party of Canada has been infiltrated by racists.

And if students hear other kids at school saying good (or even uncritical) things about Donald Trump, they should report them to teachers.

Why are we spending taxpayers’ money on something that promotes such a patently biased position? (And how is it “anti-hate” to insist that right-wing citizens are more likely to be racist?)

This guide is a blatant example of the reflexive bias of Canadian “progressives”.

They truly see themselves as the only enlightened class in the country. Therefore, anyone who disagrees with his worldview must have dark motives.

In the guide, this sufficiency is evident. In places, the network cites its own website (which was also funded by a federal grant) as the source of its evidence that conservatives are racists and white supremacists.

Unsurprisingly, Diversity Minister Ahmed Hussen said the Anti-Hate Network is “an organization that I respect very much.” He added that the group’s toolkit for students “will give them the tools to make the right decisions when reacting to real-life situations.”

We apologize, but this video failed to load.

Apparently the “good decision” is to silence your opponents by calling them racists and don’t forget to vote Liberal when you turn 18.

Readers may recall that in 2011, when the Harper government amended the citizenship guide for new Canadians, the Liberals strongly objected to the Conservatives using the term “barbaric” to describe female genital mutilation. , honor killings and homophobic attacks, and to tell immigrants that these practices violate Canadian values.

I would say that the anti-hate network manual is much worse than this citizenship guide.

Now consider that around the same time the Cabinet was raising a lot of your money to pay for a pamphlet that calls a large portion of Canadians potential racists based on their political views, it was also funding a convention of the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), which is due to start Canada Day in Toronto.

Speakers at the MAC conference will include a leader who believes gay people should be put to death and another who believes men should have the right to beat their wives, according to Terry Glavin of the National Post.

Yet another speaker has in the past argued that Christian Arabs who harbor Jews from murderers are traitors to their race.

The Liberal government has an entirely subjective and distorted view of who promotes racism in Canada and who does not.

Finally, consider the case of Lynne Hoff, a rancher from Sundre, Alberta. At a small town rodeo parade last weekend, Hoff got into an unauthorized float.

The float was amateurish, maybe even crude — a tractor driven by someone wearing a Justin Trudeau mask pulling a manure spreader painted in Liberal colors carrying a man dressed as Jagmeet Singh.

Singh’s charade was a little tasteless (but no worse than Trudeau’s many blackface appearances), but it was satire. As Hoff explained to CTV, “The last thing it was was racist. If the leader of the NPD party had been a blonde woman, I would have been in there. It had nothing to do with the Sikh community.

And yet Hoff and the city of Sundre were castigated from afar. Politicians of all persuasions denounced them.

Many elite Canadians have strange, one-sided views on racism.
