Did anyone get the memo that history has been rewritten, with Canada recast as a slave state?
That’s right. We all thought that Canada was a safe haven for slaves escaping plantations in the Southern U.S., but the daring Underground Railway chapter has apparently been tossed. In fact, Sunday was Canada’s first “Emancipation Day”.
Woke progressives pushing the myth of Canadian slavery conveniently overlook the fact that slavery was abolished throughout the British Empire in 1807, a full 60 years before Canada even existed! Yet Ismael Traore appeared on CTV News Vancouver Sunday talking about acknowledgment of “Canada’s 200 years (sic) history of slavery.” Now that’s a neat trick considering Canada hasn’t even existed for 200 years.
The scope the lie from Traore, a highly paid diversity executive at the university if British Columbia is staggering. Yet the whole Emancipation Day charade is promoted by the fake news media without challenge.
Canadian leftists are using the same propaganda methods designed by the New York Times in their 1619 project, which asserts US slavery began 150 years before the United States even existed.
The highly educated Traore is well aware this type of hate speech won’t benefit race relations. The end game from the woke left is, of course, to promote division and hatred.
The end game here is simply the rise of cultural Marxism. And in order to do that, they need enough people to believe that all of society is steeped with inequities that the people must rise up and overthrow.
Once upon a time, Marxists used terms like "proletariat" and "bourgeois" to describe the actors in their struggle. But since that didn't work, they've changed the terms to "whiteness" and "oppressed groups." Same concept; different words. Since they can't convince people to overthrow the wealthy, they'll convince people to overthrow "racism" instead. The ends remain the same.
Canada was not formed until 1867 and slavery was abolished in Britain in 1834. How could Canada have been a slave state before it existed? Unless you are talking about indigenous peoples who of course practiced slavery on each other on a regular basis.
Although its easy to see that many people benefit financially from this charade, that is not the primary point of the effort. Its a well known fact that you do not raise up one group by tearing down another, so the advancement of blacks or other races is not the objective (although like I said some do benefit). The objective is to cause division, and to tear down the middle class (which is mostly white, or used to be) and to have only two classes the elites and the working class just like under feudalism. Guys like Ismael are simply useful idiots who benefit along the way.
