Canada's Wake-Up Call
The recent foiling of a terrorist ring in Canada, that its media seems unable to admit was made up of Muslim Canadians, may provide that country of hockey and peace a chilling dose of reality. Jonah Goldberg discusses how the application of multiculturalism did nothing to stop young Muslim men from plotting against a country suffering from terminal niceness. He writes:
Nearly all of the alleged Canadian plotters were raised in Canada and attended Canadian public schools. They were indeed homegrown.
Just a few weeks before the alleged Canadian terror plot was revealed, a sociology professor penned an essay in a Canadian newspaper boasting how well “multiculturalism works in Canada.” Canadians are blissfully immune to the backlash against multiculturalism in Europe and the U.S. caused by jihadi terror, argued Augie Fleras, and this has created a climate of progress and social peace. Fleras might want to revisit that.
Pink Floyd covered this phenomenon in "Sheep" from the "Animals" CD.
Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away,
only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air
You better watch out, there may be dogs about.
I've looked over Jordan,
and I have seen things are not what they seem.
What do you get for pretending the dangers not real.
Meek and obedient you follow the leader down well trodden corridors, into the valley of steel.
What a surprise! A look of terminal shock in your eyes.
Now things are really what they seem. No, this is no bad dream.
