Today we are, in part, called upon to remember a time when Canada didn’t suck.
I can’t remember such a time, frankly.
It’s been Trudeaupia since I can recall.
Our armed forces are staffed almost entirely of (cough) old stock Canadians, because our wonderful, oh-so-necessary immigrants can’t be bothered signing up.
This “worthwhile Canadian initiative” comes too, too late to matter now.
And from what I can make out, the soldiers we do have are tasked with building schools and “democracies” for ungrateful, illiterate, cousin-marrying low IQ child molesters. When they aren’t getting killed by roadside bombs.
We are trying to rebuild Japan before nuking it. Twice. (And locking up the Japanese here. And setting up the 442nd.)
And the Japanese had a living memory of high culture and refinement to look back on, a civilized tradition they could aim to restore, once they shrugged off the embrace of their supremacist, suicidal death cult “religion”.
Oh, and we outlawed political Shinto in their new constitution. Hint.
Today, we’d dutifully repeat some line about how “kamikaze” really meant “divine wind,” and we idiot round eyes just didn’t “get” the “spiritual” side of it — and hey, we could use a little of that ourselves, couldn’t we? Look at us, with our Glen Miller records and our fancy iceboxes, while those Japanese have their simple beautiful tea ceremonies, and no, actually, foot binding hardly ever happened and was someone else’s idea anyhow…
“I’m always worried about using the word ‘victory,’ because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur,” Obama told ABC News.
The West wants to die at this point, and we more or less deserve to, but the trouble is, the wrong people are the ones getting killed.
And no, All-Powerful Pod People In Charge of Every Aspect of What I Laughingly Call My “Life”:
The bad guys don’t “fall through the cracks.”
The world you’ve created over the past 40 years IS the MOTHER ****ING CRACK.
And you won’t let us fix it.
