‘Milk piranhas': Americans want Canadian shoppers banned from border Costco! (video)
UPDATE: Mark Steyn answers some of those Facebookers’ “racist” questions.
“Them Canadians can be rude. The lines are crazy. We aren’t on a vacation and have an RV to hang out in like those Canadians,” the page states.
By Monday afternoon, the page had received more than 2,400 “likes” and generated interest from national U.S. news networks.
Plenty of Canadians, however, expressed outrage. One self-identified Canuck went so far as to report the page to Facebook administrators, saying it “clearly supports racism, harassment.”
Another, identified in his profile as Andre Rheaume, launched into an attack.
“It just comes down to flat broke … jealous americans that really can’t afford to go shopping anymore so they need to put the blame on Canadians where the economy is in much greater shape. Sour grapes I say! Here’s a loonie… go buy yourself a life (sic)!”
UPDATE: Is this “the War of 1812 redux”?
Don’t make us burn the joint down, guys!
