They say white Canadians “have likely harmed non-white people with our own whiteness.” Sorry, the only people I know who talk that way are race-obsessed bigots.
And in case you aren’t willing to be called a racist just because you’re born white, Racism Free Edmonton has another insult for you: You’re just a racist in denial of your racism. And denying your racism “perpetuates racism.”
The last time a government tried that logic was in the 1690s in Salem, Mass. There, 150 people were arrested and accused of witchcraft. Of course, most denied it — which is exactly the sort of thing you’d expect a witch to say.
UPDATE: new group — Stand Up for Freedom, Canada!
Stand Up For Freedom Canada! is a grassroots educational campaign to defend our fundamental human rights from Canada’s human rights commissions and tribunals.
We believe it is time that the injustices of the commissions and tribunals be exposed and legislators be made aware of the need to reform, replace, or remove them. We do this in the name of upholding genuine human rights that suffer as a result of being trumped by the newly fabricated rights talk that is common in Canada’s commissions and courts. If you believe in the importance of having the freedom to believe, think, write, speak, assemble, and act according to your convictions, please join us in our campaign.
The trouble is: the website gives you no idea who these people are, exactly. More information, please!
