It's Official: Canadians are as Ignorant & Ugly as USians

We helped topple the elected president of Haiti and helped install an interim regime of murderers to destroy the deposed president's political party. Our media had reported jack-shit about this, and most Canadians appeared not to care anyway.

We've spent 8 years in Afghanistan and the place is still a basket-case, with a fraudulent election returning a puppet president who hates the asshole NATO countries who preserve his limited power. He's surrounded by gangster-warlords who rape and torture with impunity. We're fighting an enemy that was never popular with the majority of the country and they've been gaining in strength for years. We've passively stood by while our government has presided over this torture and rape and murder. (Some of us have spoken out. Some of us have stood to be counted. But it's been as little specks in a sea of apathy or delusion or sadism.)

It's getting to the point where I just don't give a shit about this country. If the vast majority of Canadians want to self-righteously masturbate themselves about how they're so superior to our political system, while doing nothing to provide any evidence for this superiority, and the remainder appear content to wallow in ignorant, deluded loyalty to either the Liberals or the harpercons, then fuck 'em.

Everybody else can cheer on the strangers in the red and white at the fucking olympics. If Canada really is a place that countenances war, murder, torture, rape and theft (either of our own First Nations, or of Haitians or Afghans or Palestinians) then I want nothing to do with it. I can't bring myself to scream like an idiot for an illusion.

You make a good point bringing up the illusion.

The illusion is always better than the reality, with regards to both Canada and the Olympics. As a kid, I loved the Olympics for what it supposedly stood for (a united and peaceful world, etc.) and less about the actual sport. Of course, in reality, it's just another billion-dollar business with the same warts as any other billion-dollar business.

As for both Canada and the U.S., the public perception is mostly of carefully constructed illusions. I think that is one of the many reasons why people are so apathetic... actually, it's just an offshoot of what Mentarch always says.

(At least, that's the most optimistic reason that I can think of. The worse option is that they know the truth and don't care.)
