The Reformer's Firebrand

*-{The New Canadian Colonist's Advocate }-* A commentary of fiery reformist sentiment from the spirit of it's 210 year old Canadian ghost publisher patron. This will be a home to the new wave of anti-partisan advocacy for defeating Canada's second "family compact" and reinstallation of responsible governance in this 21st century new Canadian democratic dominion.

Liberal duality and Dual citizens

From the double standards dept:

A Canadian PM ( Chretien) denied a Canadian citizen an honor to be knighted in Britain because they would have to be a dual citizen to do so….yet we have a venal PM from the same party appoint a dual citizen to "peerage" as head of state. I had been attacked by the moonbat league for objecting to the appointment on this basis…I want all moonies that lurk to explain rationally to us why we can't be a Canadian citizen to receive British peerage yet we allow a French citizen to be appointed head of state. Why is it not appropriate for a Canadian citizen to be a knight of a foreign nation but it is appropriate for a foreign citizen to sit as our head of state. Bonus question for Liberal partisans: Will we make GG Jean renounce her French honors awarded by a foreign government as we did Black and his ilk? Bonus question for the knee-jerk Moonbats: What if our new GG of color was a dual citizen from America instead of a French colonial?...'zat OK Ms. Parrish?

Hypocrisy, thy name art Liberal.

The Canadian citizen in question was recomended for the Peerage,
which is higher than a knighthhood, but point taken.

Sorry Fog, I thoight I mentioned it through the links that Black's peerage was muddied....in any event what was on display in the Chretien-Black scrap was Chretiens inbred Fracophone bigotry and the liberal party's pseudo-Marxist class bigotry....they just perverted state conventions to attack Black who was an ideological enemy

My point is that the same manipulated qulifications that robbed Black of peerage and Canadian citizenship, was not applied linearly in the case of the GG appointment. Sybolism ( Jean is the poster kid for Lib-left social engineering) over the conventions/standards they imposed on others. Dual standards on dual citizens.

As I said...would Jean have gotten the appointment if she were a dual citizen from the US?...doubt it...liberal sybolism dictates we affirm our citizenship by hating America.

This woman is so completely UNqualified to be our GG that it seems cynical and perverted to have made this choice. A lot of thought or feedback seems also lacking and non-existent.
I am sure she is an accomplished woman in her chosen endeavours and have no personal animosity one way or the other. As a qualified choice for GG however, I believe there are many others from whose ranks a more suitable choice could have been made.
This strikes me as another hap-hazard effort on Paul Martin's part whose performance so far as PM is so disappointing and sadly lacking in any character other than opportunism.

She's a token! Token visible minority; token immigrant; token french; token youngster! Yet, she has not achieved distinction in anything. I'd at least hope that achieving distinction would be a requirement.

I had to blog this... so I put out an "All-Call"... a code 9 on Celestial Junk. It'll be fun to see if any of our socialist friends take the bait. Please take it easy on them :)

No worries mate. I see socialists as larva..gestaing...politically and ratioanally unborn...they're lucky the concept of abortion repulses my higher sense of ethics....then again it is horribly tempting to dispatch a viral infection in it's incubation stage ;-)

I have a different point of view on Socialist/Liberals. When I was 20 to 30 years of age my heros were Ed Schreyer and Ed Broadbent. Lots of reading, an open mind, and life experience converted me to the dark side though... and here I am. So, I know that within each young moonbat is a true libertarian waiting to be born... the old farts my age I have no time for.

I'll concede the point to you Paul, most rational people grow up intellectually and abandon the fallacious ideals and fraudulant promises of statist socialism. I started my political life as a union steward and an NDP riding president.....I was fresh out of College and sure I was so damn sure about how the world should dovetail into the narrow template my lefty profs had boxed my conciousness into....well I got some milage on me and life's lessons were not wasted on me....I have been a libertarian and an objectivist since I was in my late 20s.....but that was self realization...as a socialist dupe I would hear no one's reasoned cautions....this is why I say the leftist debating tact is agressively combative and overtly resistant to reason....sadly, I was there at one time myself.

Bill: Your last comment is begging for a post. A genuine disclosure of how some of us ended up where we are could be very fruitful. I'm going to give this some thought and just may post a little bio on my own journey to the "dark" side. It just might twig some youngster off of the Michael Moore path.

When we are very young you can't tell us anything. WE know it all, or at least have a handle on figuring it out that our elders simply have no clue about...at least that what we used to think. We got older.... got jobs , paid bills and most sobering of all, especially in Canada...paid taxes. If THAT doesn't make a conservative out of ya, nothin' will.
My dad fought in WWll and I grew up in awe and with great respect for his generation. Many of our young people have respect for nothing..not our elders or those who saved our sorry hides and secured our freedom for these 60 years on... or, and this is key, themselves. Only when they reach that realization outside themselves do they start to actually think.
How does that old saying go... when you are young if you are not a democrat you have no heart and when you are older if you are not a conservative you have no brain. That just about nails it.
What could possibly excuse the likes of Howard Dean, John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Paul Martin, Jean Chretien and all their ilk? The only thing that could possibly and generously come to mind is: arrested development. Mentally and otherwise... but.... I wish it were that simple. The modern democrat or left sentiment is laced with a cynicism and shrewd misuse of facts that one comes to the inescapable conclusion that they have ulterior motives and those motives are not far off from the aims of Islamist extremists!
