Like most people, I don’t have a whole lot of love for bullies.
Aside for disliking their cruel and often cowardly nature, I also detested their hypocrisy.
I still remember when I was in the 9th grade and this chump who used to sit behind me always making fun of me and sharing lots of laughs at my expense with the monkey sitting next to him.
One day I had enough, turned around and yelled at him, “Why don’t you shut your fucking mouth you piece of shit!“
The classroom went dead silent.
His face washed over and shock…and then (unbelievably enough) he turned to the teacher, as if indicating to him that he had to “take care of me” for my foul language and aggression.
My teacher shook his head side-to-side in a no gesture at the bully and told him to suck it up. Our teacher had clearly heard the bully pestering me, but I guess he wanted me to take care of my own problem. Once I had, I was given free pass.
The PQ separatists are the 9th grade bully, constantly pestering federalists, Anglos and immigrants alike, but always in the same guarded way the high schooler does it – on guard.
For those of you readers who can’t read French, believe me, you’re missing out.
Most of what I read in the comments sections of Francophone news sites and blogs completely obliterates the argument that seps simply want out of Canada because they have their “own vision” of how things should be.
If you could read French, you would very clearly see that most seps hate “non pur-lainers” simply for the fact that they’re not part of the club.
They utterly despise Anglo-Canadians and have a deep-seeded resentment of immigrants.
From under-handed, under-the-breath jabs to very blatant attacks in the form of Bill 60, these bullies delight in any shot they can take…until the wind blows it back in their faces.
This glaring double-standard bubbled to the surface this week when the visiting German president, Joachim Gauck pronounced himself in favour of a unified Canada.
What’s Good For The Gander Ain’t Good For The Loonie
It was not even two weeks prior to Gauck’s comment that the PQ had sent a formal delegation to Scotland to “observe” the referendum.
Take a close look at what Alexandre Cloutier is holding in his left hand:
So, our separatist friends are free to invite themselves to a foreign country and deliberately choose a side and become actively involved in proclaiming what the outcome of the referendum should be, but a politician from Germany can’t make a 20-second expression of joy over Canada being united?
So far, the only bacon the PQ has been able to serve up on this one is that since Cloutier is not an elected LEADER, then it’s OK.
Welcome to the magical land discovered by late night talk show personality, Jonathan Stewart – Bullshit Mountain.
But to the PQ’s credit, it’s not just OK for them to interfere in the political squabbles of others.
In some cases, it’s perfectly admissible for foreign dignitaries to voice their opinions on Quebec’s status…so long as it’s in the separatists favor.
Je Me Souviens…
…or the time a rancid ball of dried-up foreskin (that’s borrowed…too rich to pass up) showed up on our doorstep to make the now infamous declaration of…
Yes, he may be from France, a country that is foreign to Quebec, but since he’s down with the separatists, an exception can be made for his “meddling”.
Besides, his declaration is only four words long, so all those separatists with a 3rd grade reading level can understand it.
And…and…it looks fucking awesome on a tshirt!
The End of Accountability
Just a week ago, a gang of angry, discouraged sepies who haven’t had sex in a very long time, decided to have a pow-wow to discuss why their movement is waning so quickly.
Of course, looking at the real reason, is too painful.
Forget about accepting that setting a highly-damaging culture of double-standards might be a huge root cause, they talked about how Quebec’s youth just requires more indoctrination than the previous generation.
The reason the sovereignist movement ended up on it’s ass (or as GrandpaParizeau calls it, a field of ruins), is because a minority of bullies picked on the wrong kid.
