I agree.  Which is why I don't buy their whole "Canada is full of far-right, white supremacist, Muslim haters" rhetoric.

Unfortunately, there are far too many of us with that mindset, though.

I guess, if you label anyone who doesn't think like you do as a white supremacist. 

*"you" here does not mean JMT, it's the generic "you", the Don Cherry "you"

I think back to the big fracas on the Fort Mac community facebook page where dozens of Muslims attacked a Jewish girl, detailing all the ways they wanted to kill her and abuse her corpse and all those of her family.  Honestly, nothing I've seen a Canadian do compares to what I witnessed that day.  Even when they show those videos of people on the news telling others to "Go Home!, Go back your country!" - it doesn't come close to the pure unadulterated hatred I saw that day.

Just because we're not "the most prejudiced country in the world" doesn't mean those voices don't exist. They do. And they should be appropriately criticized for their knuckle-dragging idiocy.

This bullsh!t?

Put the Koolaid down, Goddess. There isn't a single person in the world who thinks it's racist to have a "difference of opinion."

When a$$holes like Don Cherry thinks he can recognize foreigners by the way they look and criticizes them for not wearing poppies, meanwhile the pics of the Wexit convention on Nov 10 shows a bunch of Boomers without poppies, yeah....he's racist. What he said was racist. How he thinks is racist. He's trash with a trash worldview and should summarily dismissed as such.

I agree.  I just think it should be called out whoever it is.

At the grocery store the other day and some Metallica song comes on (one of those from the ‘90’s so more pop than metal).....

So it works: music triggers memories whether intentionally or not.

While inside a large room filled with tapestries at the Pitti Palace in Florence an older French woman’s cell phone rings out.

Saxophone.

Da dun. Da dun. Da dun da dun da dun da dun daaaa duuuuuunnnnn da dun da da dun.

Pink Panther theme!

Even the Italian lady standing at the door smiles.
