I am baffled at citizens born and raised in the US and Canada get so mad at immigrants and the funds the government uses to help them( At least in Canada). The Irish went through the exact same thing when they immigrated originally in droves. Where I live almost everyone is from Irish decent some how. And now those blood lines are doing to others what the ‘true Americans and Canadians’ did to their ancestors. You think they would have more compassion. Immigrated people do not take from us. If you are angry about the lack of funds for something that isn’t aimed at helping those who are immigrating, the problem isn’t those programs. The problem is the the structure of our society and the cuts that the rich and politicians get.
I don’t get proper funding for my mental illness. Do you see me angry at other programs to help those who need it? NO! I just want to go all historical and political on people who are willfully ignorant. It would just make me enraged and you can’t have a debate with ignorant people who don’t listen. It goes in one ear and goes out the other
We are all immigrants except the First Nations. Who our ancestors treated like less than human. The refugees Canada took in pissed a lot of people off. They are refugees! Fuck off and get a damn heart and help people. Stop bitching when it isn’t the problem, our system is. We pride ourselves on being a mosaic of culture. Get your Canadian pride and shit together and accept and educate.
