Sorry, we didn't become a country because some of you hate the United States.


Wrongooo...UELs rejected American Republicanism over a century BEFORE Confederation and one of the main reasons for that final push was a fear over being annexed/invaded by the United States. Damn that education and knowledge stuff, huh?


How does that translate into "hate"?

Well....

Fear of Muslims = Hate
Fear of Gays = Hate

etc..

The fear is a form of hate. We don't want them. We reject them. We refused them.

Turning our fear from "scared" to "rejection" which is pretty much xenophobia. Which is, as many will agree, hate.

I think you ran out of new thread ideas about a month back.

Here an idea for a thread: America becoming more Fascist & Anti-American?


The reason for this thread is I have been surfing a few other forums and notice that Canadians have a general dislike of American imperialism...


8O Wow - can't figure out why Canadians might not like American imperialism.

The term, 'imperialism' wasn't a big enough clue?

Man, you are some thick. And that ain't just normal thick...

That's 'cow' thick.

2 things:
$1:
I am tired of seeing your cavalier use of terms you obviously don't understand and an unwillingness to learn apart from a recitation of the usual right-wing definitions which equate Socialism with any policy to the left of Mussolini.

Obama a socialist? Jack Layton barely holds a claim to being socialist.
Ed Broadbent. Best there was.

and BC history - note the name "British Columbia", we weren't "saved" by the bribe of a railroad. That merely got us into Canada instead of remaining an independent colony.
James Douglas was highly anti-American. He practically whipped BC into existence to ensure the influx of Americans was controlled after the Oregon "surrender".
Goddam redcoats handed away the bottom half and later a chunk of the coast to the Yanks.

I never said we were "saved" by anything. I said the railroad sealed the deal.

Yeah it did, but I had to point out to guys like Manifest that there was no way we'd go for annexation. There was actual anti-American sentiments when this province and the country was formed.
And we're pretty distinct in BC over 'socialism' too. Don't forget it was WAC Bennett and his team who decided we needed ferries and Black Ball & CP weren't doing a good job so he bought them and made BC Ferries. BC Electric was fumbling it's way so he bought it and made BC Hydro. The PGE accomplished nothing so he bought it and made BC Rail. All the while fighting 'the socialist hordes'... nowadays anyone who doesn't want to undo and privatize everything Bennett and the Socreds did is accused of being a socialist!

I'm no socialist but I didn't want the Liberals to sell BC rail, I was also against the privatization of the Coquihalla.

Oh WOW, here we go again. Trying to lower me to your level by calling names.

Nah, man you just ain't worth it...

I'm not sure what the cow has to do with your argument. Maybe you were referring to the United States stopping shipments of diseased Canadian cows from enter their marketplace.

Yeah, how dare those Imperialist Americans protect their citizens from diseased Canadian meat.

Rather than worrying about American policies with regards to Canadian beef, we should worry about better inspections here at home. Ya think??

15th listeria death linked to Maple Leaf Foods

I hear the Canadian government buys all it's meats from MapleLeaf meats for their military personnel . Hope you have a wonderful breakfast. :lol:

Check out Craig's "Upper Canada" because anyone aware of Canada's past would know about the UEL's position on Americans, especially Republicans

What kind of idiot would pull that bullshit out?

Everyone here knows that the problem was in American cows and they were just blaming Canada (again, as they did for 9/11 and almost all their major power-outages).

You do know that Alberta's cows weren't ever a true threat, right?

And you pull out Maple Leaf foods as proof? You do know what was wrong with the food right? A machine had very old meat in it. Nothing to do with the cows or anything at all.

I never said that Anti-American hate wasn't okay.

I was just making sure everyone knew that it is, infact, hate.

I'm not preaching anything.
