Canada Keeps Drinking The Politically Correct Kool-Aid

Imagine cities taking down statues of George Washington in America because he was found to be offensive when weighed against modern sensibilities. No daring to talk about the vital role he had in the founding of his nation.

That's what Canada is doing - taking down statues of their first prime minister- the man that brought Canada together.

The GLobe and Mail: Victoria to remove statue of Sir John A. Macdonald

A statue of Sir John A. Macdonald is set to be removed from the steps of Victoria’s City Hall this weekend, as communities across the country struggle to reconcile the legacy of the country’s founding prime minister with his treatment of Indigenous people. The plan to remove the statue, which easily passed a city council vote on Thursday, follows year-long discussions with two local First Nations who argued the statue has become a painful reminder of colonialism. But it has also inflamed a debate about whether historical figures should be judged through a modern lens, and how to weigh abuses against Macdonald’s role in shaping the country.

Yes, to assuage leftist white guilt, the founder of their nation is being removed from the public square.

Personally I think all those Canadians who are Offended by John A. Macdonald should reach into their wallets and send me all their $10 bills that bear his likeness. I'll give them a good home and honor Sir John A. accordingly.

Hey Aaron;

Unless they/we get a handle on this rampant "White guilt" and the need to keep virtue signalling, this will signal the death of western civilization. The modern leftist is using the prism of modern "thought" and judge people's action using today's values rather than the prevailing values of the times.

MrGarabaldi: Yep, it's not looking good for Western Civilization. Then again, with the leftists in academia constantly harping on the evils of Western Civ, this sort of insanity is sadly not unexpected.
