Canadians don’t trust Hillary Clinton, but would vote for her: Ipsos poll
Global Television Network, currently owned by Shaw Communications, falls into the “Neocon” spectrum. For decades, Global was owned by Israel “Izzy” Asper. Unfortunately, after Izzy died in 2003, David ran daddy’s company into the ground, Global’s corpse was purchased by Shaw Communications, now Corus Entertainment.
So, what? Pretty much no change from the way things are right now? In the 2015 Canadian federal elections, enough disenchanted conservative-minded Canadians stayed home, allowing Liberal pretty-boy Justin Trudeau to take office. What we have been witnessing for the past decade (at least) in Canada – and until November 8, 2016 in the United States – is two sides of fascism: The A-team and the B-team. Harper was the A-team and Trudeau was the B-team waiting in the wings. Canadian voters were entertaining the idea of voting NDP. Unfortunately, NDP leader Thomas Mulcair managed to implode in the past few weeks of the campaign. Ironically, Mulcair, who is the leader of Canada’s socialist party was the only leader pledging a balanced budget.
Half of Canadians don’t trust Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but a slight majority of them would still vote for her, according to a new poll.
This proves the need for an I.Q. test at the polls. Along with proof of citizenship. Our American friends would be surprised to realize that photo identification (such as a driver’s license or a provincial health card) is mandatory in order to vote in Canada.Unfortunately, corresponding proof of citizenship us not. This article was posted on the morning of the U.S. election. Clinton supporters wanted to be part of a celebrity cult and would vote for her no matter what.
CEO of Ipsos Public Affairs Darrell Bricker thinks that this could indicate dissatisfaction with the choices. “It’s not like there is a particularly inspiring choice like a Barack Obama on the ballot,” he said. However, he points out that 32 per cent of Canadians decided not to vote in their own election in 2015.
Ah, yes. Barack Hussein Obama. The man who would restore hope. Lift black people out of the ghettos. Tape the constitution back together. Restore hope. The Nobel peace-prize winner. Remember that guy?
Bricker claims “32 per cent of Canadians decided not to vote…” Wrong. One-third of Canadians concluded voting the lesser of two (or three) evils is a really stupid way to run a country. And under the Canadian parliamentary election system, voters do not get to vote for the prime minister. They vote for their local member of parliament, who is a member (in most cases) of one of the three parties: Liberal, Conservative and New Democratic Party. Voters who may have been inclined to “vote for” one of the party leaders may have been forced to vote for a totally incompetent or otherwise unsuitable fool who is running under that party’s banner in the voter’s own district.
A special election is being held at the provincial level in Ontario’s Niagara region. In Niagara West-Glanbrook, Tim Hudak, who led the Progressive Conservatives to their disastrous defeat in 2014. The P.C.s have fielded 19-year-old Sam Ooosterhoff. Little Sammy is parotting the very religious right, “socially conservative” neo-con nonsense that P.C. Leader Patrick Brown is trying to distance himself from in the first place.
As a result, Niagara West-Glanbrook voters who would otherwise be inclined to show their support for Mr. Brown and the Progressive Conservatives will be forced to stay home. .Or vote for an incompetent 19-year-old candidate.
Trump just rubs a lot of Canadians the wrong way, said Bricker. “Tolerance is one of those things in Canada that we see as being really, really important. If there is a defining element on how Canadians feel about their country and their values, tolerance is a big part and to them, he’s come across as a very intolerant candidate.”
It looks like our American friends were even less tolerant of the Clinton corruption machine, the endless Clinton scandals, the Clinton bought-and-paid-for corporate media and its fawning coverage, the Bush-Clinton dynastic pendulum, leaving the door wide open to invaders from Mexico, as well as the middle-east, the decimation of manufacturing, the looting by banksters and the outright criminality of Missus Clinton.
Whatever the outcome, Canadians are watching. Fifty-eight per cent of respondents said that they were closely following the election. “It’s pretty compelling television,” said Bricker.
That’s great. Maybe they’ll get some ideas in their little heads in time for the next Canadian election. Somebody get Kevin O’Leary on the phone.
News media has been following the ups and downs of the campaign, but it’s also dominating social media, he said. “You’ve got people doing and saying things in national politics in the United States that normally you would only see out of very extreme candidates.”
Oh, Really? Did I miss something? Did corporate media report on Hillary Clinton gloating about getting a client “off” after raping a 12-year-old-girl? Did they talk about how she treated her secret service agents (i.e. Marine One, sunglasses, limo)? “We came, we saw, he died?” Her contempt for her supporters? Her common use of the word “nigger?”
Oh, no, no, no. We’re not going talk about that, are we? Donald Trump said, “Pussy!”
