    Vlad Tepes lives in the Frozen North — Ottawa, to be precise. He’s convinced that his country is responsible for foisting modern politically correct Multiculturalism on the rest of the Western world, and has made the following video to illustrate his point:

    YouTube - Blame Canada for multiculturalism

    Blame Canada? Sounds good to me…

    The notes accompanying the video are below the jump.

    The fact is, for all of liberal democracy until the birth of political correctness as a political force within free nations it was always understood that making one choice logically precluded certain other choices. It was also understood what freedom of religion actually meant.

    It meant that a person was free to practice their religion without fear of the state pounding on their doors and burning them at the stake for calling their gods by other names or denominations.

    It never meant that they could break the secular laws of the state under the flimsy excuse that their religion mandates it. In fact, it should be considered a fantastic thing by most people merely that they have the choice to make the choice.

    Under Mulroney, Canada made a catastrophic mistake. I said so then, and maintain it now.

    We allowed a man who chose to be a Sikh, to wear his turban with the official uniform of the RCMP.

    Clearly Mulroney, as much as I liked him then as now, did not get the big picture.

    That Sikh had the choice in Canada of being a Sikh without fear from the state or the Muslims next door. He had the choice of joining the RCMP and not being refused because he was a Sikh. But in no way should he have not had to make the choice between the uniform and the Turban.

    There is a lot of anti Sikh sentiment in Canada, not totally without cause, I'm very sorry to say.

    Repeated brawling at gurudwaras , with or without "kirpans" being drawn, murdering Punjabi drug gangs, spousal abuse and daughter murder are a few reasons that are real. The bombing of Air India Flight 182 is a widely-believed fiction. (This is telling. I couldn't remember the flight number. When I googled on "sikh bomb airplane" I got a whole page on this flight. I also learned that it's OK for Sikhs to carry kirpans on airplanes in India since, "Sikhs prefer to bomb planes, not hijack them." And, happily, I also saw my statement from elsewhere in SPN, "And SIKHS DID NOT BOMB THAT AIRPLANE!!! As for Ujjal Dosanjh, I do not like him. I do not like him even one little bit...")

    We really do need to clean up our act, if we are to effectively counteract the sort of drivel in this video.

    Trivia: "Blame Canada" is the only song containing the f-word ever nominated for the Best Song Oscar. It didn't win, though.
