When Virtue-Signaling meets Reality – The O Canada Version

It appears, according to this article, that the government of Canada, led by Justin Trudeau


has come to the “real world” conclusion that accepting multitudes of “migrants” from 3rd world nations such as Haiti, El Salvador, Nigeria and Somalia is not as “culturally invigorating” as he thought it would be.


In fact, not so long ago, he made a point of shaming President Trump, and by extension all Americans, for their callous rejection of millions of unskilled/low-skilled emigres from failed nations around the globe.

Do you remember these Twitted words from Prime Minister Trudeau on 29 Jan 2017 after President Trump talked about a temporary travel ban involving unvetted travelers from seven primarily Muslim nations until better methods could be established to identify them:

“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada,” he tweeted.

The ThoughtMarauder imagines that after he sent that Tweet he closed his eyes and envisioned himself receiving the Nobel Peace Prize and started writing his acceptance speech for his induction into the Progressive Hall of Fame.

Regrettably, as so often happens, reality crashed the feel-good party.


Over 27,000 people have crossed into Canada since that Twit was Tweeted (hehe) causing a huge backload of cases in their Immigration department, not to mention the massive cost of housing, feeding and providing medical care.

The Canadians are discovering that when you fling open the doors of your Welfare State it doesn’t take long for the “guests” to arrive.

Can you say California?


And once they arrive you better keep providing the goods lest you be accused of – dare I say it – RACISM.

The Prime Minister would have been wise to keep his Tweets to himself because once the “Wonders of Diversity” Genie gets rubbed it don’t like gettin’ unrubbed.

America has been dealing with this problem for years now and taking jabs from other countries (and from people inside our own) decrying our “lack of compassion.” Perhaps now the Canadians are discovering what we already know.

Reality bites!

One thought on “When Virtue-Signaling meets Reality – The O Canada Version”

  1. Leftists champion the addict, the insane, the homeless, the illegal, the criminal. That is, until they show up on their doorstep or around the entrance to their gated community.

    Barbara Streisand hates Trump and loves illegals, but the only illegals you’ll see anywhere near her multi-million dollar Malibu mansion is if they are mowing her grass or pouring her tea, because she can hire them for $3/hour.
