The above video of Ujjal Dosanjh, Liberal MP for Vancouver South, really shows how we have come full circle. Since Harper's Reform-Conservatives have opted out of helping U.S. President Obama get his much needed health reforms passed, others have stepped up. Mr. Dosanju handled himself very well and did us all proud.
He is a perfect example though of how the Reform Party ideology was so wrong for Canada, then and now. I came across an old column of Doug Collins', written about this gentleman, that while it makes you wince, should also remind you why we need to get this party out.
Mr. Collins was the Reform Party member who was forbidden from running as an MP; not because of his racist views, but because he refused to sign an oath that he wouldn't discuss those views in public.
While much was made of the discovery that the Heritage Front were operating within the Reform Party, nothing that it's leader Wolfgang Droege had to say, was much different than anything Doug Collins had to say. Both men are gone, but still represent the ideology that formed this party, from it's roots in Social Credit to it's transformation as the Conservative Party of Canada. They are still rotten to the core.
When is Racism not Racism
February 4, 2000
When it’s minority racism? Everyone knows that!
Everyone may know it but in politically correct Canada few are saying so. Especially not in B.C.,where a “human rights” commission lurks in wait for non-believers and where the mainstream media are gung-ho for multiculturalism.
Those who doubt this view have only to consider the Sikh push to get Attorney General Ujjal Dosanjh appointed as the NDP leader and premier of the province when the party holds its leadership convention in February.
The process is a template for political action on the basis of race while the disenfranchised look on, agape. The media, meanwhile, refer to it delicately as a matter of religion. But one can imagine what the reaction would be if Anglicans were asked to support white Anglican politicians.
Thanks to mass member sign-ups in the temples, many of them phony, the Sikhs are now the dominating influence in the provincial NDP. And right now it looks as if the most dangerous man in the cabinet will win the race. Politicians who hope to get something out of him are licking his boots. Across the country, Sikhs are contributing tens of thousands of dollars to his campaign.
White supremacy bad, Sikh supremacy good.
It serves the NDP right that it is being steered down this path. The socialist and multicultural chickens are now coming home to roost. Worrying about being governed by immigrants from India or for that matter by men from the moon has not been on the NDP agenda. Multicult is their electoral god, just as it has been an icon for the mainstream media.
Is Dosanjh the most dangerous man in the cabinet? Yes, now that Glen Clark has had to resign in disgrace as premier. He is the enemy of anyone who likes freedom of speech and equality in the job market. He pushes affirmative action — more minorities on the judiciary was one of his pre-candidacy planks (especially Sikhs, one presumes) and there are more minorities in his ministry than any other.
He is also on the record as being a Big Brother censor. He refuses to have B.C.’s outrageous Human Rights Code tested for its constitutionality. He has been its biggest supporter, except that for him it doesn’t go far enough. Which explains why he has left no stone unturned in trying to prevent this writer’s application for a judicial review of that Code from reaching court.
He is no Teddy Roosevelt, but like Roosevelt he speaks softly and carries a big stick. On TV he puts on act that makes him look like the most reasonable of men. As Terry O’Neill of The Report magazine has put it, he is “a stealth socialist”. Nor is he above listening to Communists like David Lethbridge of Salmon Arm, who reportedly has offered his wisdom to Dosanjh on “anti-racist” measures.
This attorney general is himself a professional “anti—racist”. He flaps his lips about racism almost daily, forgetting that he obtained a subsidized education in this “racist” Province and rose to become its top law officer. Ever the hypocrite, he has recently rejected Clark’s style of governing but kept his mouth shut when it was convenient to do so.
He had nothing to say, either, when over 100 communists, Jews and NDP “protesters” invaded the Vancouver Public Library Sept. 30 to disrupt a meeting at which I tried to speak under the auspices of the Canadian Free Speech League. I called them Dosanjh’s shock troops, many of them being from groups financed by his department.
If right wingers had broken up a multicult meeting he would have made sure the whole world knew about it. The Vancouver Sun, meanwhile, didn’t even report that tumultuous event, even though 24 policemen and six security guards had to be called out.
This is the New Millennium. And the New Canada. And unless people wake up, which they probably won’t until it is too late, it will also be the end for Canadians who prefer hockey and another beer. As Multicult Minister Gerry Weiner said in 1988 when I debated him in North Vancouver; “You can forget the Canada of 1945. We’re building a New Canada.”
Whether Canadians wanted it or not. He and Dosanjh would see eye to eye. But in the end it is we who are to blame. Too many of us put ice hockey and another beer over our own real interests.
Wolfgang Droege: "Droege denies being racist, but does see Canada's immigration policy as a threat to whites, 'the most precious force on this planet ... we believe that eventually white people will become a minority in this country because of our immigration policies ... We are racial nationalists working for the interest of whites everywhere." (Rosie DiManno, Toronto Star, June 19, 1991)
The assumption that multiculturalism will mean the destruction of Canada, is nonsense. Ujjal Dosanjh is articulate, intelligent and a champion for tolerance. If he is a socialist, then I welcome him as a comrade. Skin colour does not determine who is Canadian and who isn't.
Ironically, our new so-called multicultural minister, Jason Kenney, who was once CEO of a group who opposed the notion of multiculturalism altogether; has found a way to exploit the ethnic communities for votes, while working behind the scenes to limit further immigration.
Things really have come full circle, and the Reform-Conservatives are still the same old Reform Party, with the same old Reform Party prejudices. They have got to go. I want my country back.
