Ujjal Dosanjh, former NDP BC Premier and current Liberal MP
It was bound to happen, sooner or later... a Leftist seeing the light with respect to the darkness of crazy Leftist policies (ok, one such policy, anyway)...
Ujjal Dosanjh, a former Liberal cabinet minister and onetime B.C. premier, says Sikh extremism is on the rise in some parts of the country, and blamed, in part, “politically correct” Canadians who let it happen in the name of diversity.
Wow... a Leftist blaming the Left and Leftists! 'Scuse me... one moment... ah, ok- no pigs flying around outside. Now where were we?
Of course, Mr. Dosanjh will have to blame himself, too, for being one of those blameworthy "politically correct" Canadians. He's been NDP. He's Liberal now. One can't get more politically correct than that.
Mr. Dosanjh, who was savagely beaten in Vancouver in 1985 after speaking out against religious violence, said Canadian multiculturalism has allowed extremism to take root in Sikh and other ethnic communities.
Of course, the same, very obviously, can be said about extremism taking root in Islamic communities, again thanks to political correctness. Of course, this is a global problem, globally due to political correctness!
Blindly looking the other way on ALL "differences", no matter how "extreme" the "differences", only inspires the exempt-from-responsibility extremists to become ever-more extreme, believing that they're untouchable due to the protection of state-apparatus political correctness imperative.
That militancy is worse now, he said, than a generation ago when extremists blew up an Air India flight, killing 329 people, most of them Canadians. Ironically, Mr. Dosanjh said separatist extremism is more entrenched in some Canadian Sikh communities than in Punjab, the Indian region where the Khalistan movement – named after the theoretical Sikh country – originated.
Wow... Canadian Sikh extremists are more extreme than Sikh extremists in Punjab! Well, this isn't just "more pavilions at folkfest" that we're witnessing here... Clearly, condoning extremism in the name of political correctness, "multiculturalism", "diversity", "anti-racism", "non-discrimination", well, just listen to someone, ie. Mr. Dosanjh, who understands what he's talking about, as he's pointing the finger at folks who share his own ethnic and cultural heritage, so don't shoot me, the messenger, 'k?
Oh, dear... this could mean that Islamic extremists may be more extreme in Canada than in, say, Afghanistan, Iran, "Palestine"... hey, when one believes that one will not be punished for being extreme, and, in fact, may even effectively have one's extremism celebrated by the state apparatus (remember the Liberals, like Paul Martin and Dennis Coderre, who supportively mingled with Tamil Tigers and Hezbollahns, all in the name of "multiculturalism" and "diversity", not to mention trolling for votes)...
Hey, Warren Kinsella and Richard Warman, not to mention the "Human Rights" Commissions... THERE'S some more hate criminals for you guys to go after, persecute, write scary books about... go get 'em! You already got the pale-faced ones, so now is the time to prove you're not racist...
“I think what we are doing to this country is that this idea of multiculturalism has been completely distorted, turned on its head to essentially claim that anything anyone believes – no matter how ridiculous and outrageous it might be – is okay and acceptable in the name of diversity.
“Where we have gone wrong in this pursuit of multiculturalism is that there is no adherence to core values, the core Canadian values, which [are]: That you don’t threaten people who differ with you; you don’t go attack them personally; you don’t terrorize the populace.”
“I think Canadians need to engage in this cultural diversity debate,” he said. “And we actually have to say to each other: ‘Hey what you’re doing is wrong. What you’re doing here is right.’ We should stop being politically correct and have a debate.”
Hey... I agree with Ujjal Dosanjh, even though he's a Liberal who's annoyed me by saying unfair stuff about Conservatives in the past.
We DO need to have a debate. This is what ordinary folks have been trying to say for a long time, whilst being denounced by the Left as "racist".
Hey, Leftists... listen to one of your own. Let's have a debate, and refrain from the silly, infantile smears of "racist" and "bigot" and so on and so forth.
Saving lives is more important than protecting the feelings of extremists!
