The Stephen Harper Party of Canada: Never too stupid to learn.


"If we keep treating brown people like crap, the media will continue to tear us a new orifice on a regular basis. So what if we don't treat brown people like crap? Let's try that and see what happens."

YOUR DINING ROOM TABLE MOMENT
: Commenter "name already taken" goes all Steve Janke/Inspector Gadget on us:

What happened to this chap's original Canadian Passport? Sold? Lost?

Yes, that's a tough one, all right (emphasis added, naturally):

Mr. Mohamed's stay in East Africa began in 2004, when his mother brought him to live with relatives in the Somali port town of Bosaso. He had been struggling in Canada, and a doctor felt that being around his extended family might do him good. Ms. Issa stayed with him for several months as he settled in, then left, taking his passport with her because she feared it might be stolen. When she arrived in Toronto, Canadian officials confiscated the passport because it was not her own.

Canada's conservatives: Because reading comprehension is for other people.

The commenters don't appear to have gotten the memo yet.

The usual redneck bible thumping Jebus loving fuckwits never let the facts get in the way of a bigotted screed, especially when it involved brown people with funny names.

they'd have to actually seek out the facts first in order to ignore them....

Even worse, if they need facts they'll just make them up as required. ie; birthers, death panels, immigrants, citizens of convenience etc. Faacts that they pull out of their asses.

We owe Barney Frank a beer for that dining room table meme.

The Government should be issuing travel advisements for Canadians...about Canada.

Ti-Guy - DFIAT's revenge whe the Harpercons make them wear this stuff?
"Canadians, particularly those with Muslim, or Muslim sounding names are advised to excercise caution when travelling abroad on a Canadian passports. The Canadian government has demonstrated a willingness to prevent Canadians fitting this description from exercising their right of return, as well has collusion with foreign governments in their arrest, detention and possible torture."

Exactly, except it should read "Canadians, particularly those of amber, auburn, bay, beige, bister, brick, bronze, buff, burnt sienna, chestnut, chocolate, cinnamon, cocoa, coffee, copper, ecru, fawn, ginger, hazel, henna, khaki, mahogany, nut, ochre, puce, russet, rust, sepia, sorrel, tan, tawny, terra-cotta, and taupe complexions are advised..."

Canadian Conservatives are having a really hard time these days. Cut them some slack. I mean, ferchrissakes, the President of the United States is black! Imagine what that's like for them.
