CBC condemns South African rioters

This was previously posted to .

Anybody catch the report filed by a CBC journalist assigned to South Africa to give Canadians a trustworthy account of what is actually happening there? He might have just as well stayed in Toronto or better still, huddled with his former journalism professor of political correctness at Carelton to compose the right storyline. You know, xenophobic rioters take out their misery upon poor foreigners who have a right to displace their jobs.

I am thinking that we are better without the CBC. We are better without any news reports from South Africa. I would rather be uninformed than misinformed. I would rather have my eyes shut than have the CBC hold up a lens for me to look through. When did the CBC tell me about the truth about Canada's futile foreign aid policies in Haiti, Africa and Afghanistan? When did they give me some investigative journalism and explode the myth of the demographic transition? When did they focus on birth control rather than on Stephen Lewis and his heroic death control plans?

I notice that among the chattering classes it is a mark of sophistication to be a supporter of the CBC. At parties and social gatherings those with college degrees and professional jobs often name drop CBC programmes that they listen to. I take that to be an index of their idiocy. If the country needs to be knit together by a common broadcasting theme, I think we'd be better off with re-runs of the Howdy Doody Show, now that Lister Sinclair is long gone.

of 20 May 08 in which Phillip Adams' interviewed Loren Landau, Director of the Forced Migration Studies Programme at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. Podcast which may be unavailable after 4 weeks (roughly 17 June) is now . There is no transcript. Phillip Adams, accustomed to his secure middle class Australian lifestyle shows as little empathy for black South African workers economically threatened by large influxes of immigrants as he does for Australian workers.

For an example of a use of the demographic transisition argument, if somewhat oblique in this case, is a -470513">contribution by Australian Democrats Senator Andrew Bartlett to a discussion about immigration: “It is not a coincidence that the countries and regions that have the highest birth rates are also amongst the poorest, and amongst those with the lowest per capita greenhouse emissions”

I have to love Andy's panel. It consists of Uzuma Shakir, an advocate and activist for the rights of newcomers. Patrick Habamenshi, a Rwandan refugee, and Raheel Raza, who works to promote cultural and religious diversity through her writing and speaking. One more panelist, the famous Mr. TBA, will no doubt shore up the pro-immigration front.

It's quite astonishing that a state broadcasting system doesn't even to make any attempt to represent those 65% of Canadians who oppose the kind of "diversity" that these panelists and Those Who Know Better support. You see, the kind of diversity most Canadians prefer is intellectual diversity. As one Canadian of Chinese origin recently put it, there is little point in sitting around in a discussion group with Mark Kelly when everyone looks very differently but spouts the same politically correct multicultural group-think. Occasionally one does bear witness to a CBC panel where one, just one, beleaguered white face sits facing off against a Third World chorus. That's diversity in the same way a dab of whipped cream is atop a very tall chocolate milkshake.

The other kind of diversity Canadians prefer is biological diversity, you know, when wildlife habitat isn't paved over by the subdivisions which are being built to house the immigration tidal wave. Almost three-quarters of species at risk are found in areas threatened by urban sprawl, and 70% of those housing units are occupied by immigrants. In Greater Vancouver it is more like 85%. Ontario Environment Commissioner Gordon Miller said that in the next 25 years immigration will jam 6 million more people into Southern Ontario. Hope you like dim sum and curry because you will be trading away flora and fauna to get it. Andy's panelists seem nice enough, but I am more enriched by our native biological heritage than them.

Multiculturalism is much like a leaky air-mattress in a swimming pool. To be kept afloat, it needs constant pumping. The air, in this case, consists of infusions of people from "non-traditional" sources. Once it stops, the colonies break down and people assimilate (horrors!). The mattress sinks. So this is not really about the mosaic, is it? That's a smokescreen. It is about the corporate pyramid scam of population growth, of cheap labour and real estate development. And the CBC is part of that growth coalition, holding up rose coloured glasses through which people can mistake congestion, pollution and environmental degradation for "enrichment" and "vibrancy".

Suggested panelists: An ecologist, a biologist and John Smith, an Anglo-Celtic Canadian born and raised in Toronto who was passed over for a city job in favour of a Jamaican woman just off the plane who got hired because a) she was a woman and b) she was black. Who would be screaming for balance then?
