And That Bitch Anne Murray Too
An American in Canada wrote Sunday in the Washington Post that, while it may sound good in theory, the reality for her has been an “almost daily confrontation with a powerful anti-Americanism that pervades many aspects of life.” She added that bigotry and xenophobia toward Americans is acceptable and claims that many Canadians are naïve about Americans. For instance, she argued that the ‘Blame Canada’ song from the movie ‘South Park’ represents Americans' real attitudes toward Canada.
Gee, she would prefer to return to America in order to escape bigotry and xenophobia? What the fuck does she think is going on here? Bigotry and xenophobia here is not just reserved for one group, however, it’s directed toward many. We don’t discriminate against discriminating.
The election provided a perfect example of this when voters claimed that moral issues were the most important factor in their decision. The situation in Iraq is worsening, the economy is going into the tank, jobs are being sent overseas, and the budget deficit is exploding, but never mind that shit, we can’t allow gays to marry.
Basically, this author has discovered that it sucks being stereotyped and discriminated against. Well, welcome to the age of enlightenment!
