Want "nice"? Move to Canada. And give UP on human dignity, okay?
Those who say things like that imply that the US is not nice, but at least has human dignity. So, are the US dirty and Canada clean? By the way, was not ''Mr. Clean'' coming from the US? When Steyn says that the ''...freedom of expression, ...freedom to engage in the whole messy rough’n’tumble of vigorous debate that distinguishes open societies from lesser, stunted, insecure ones...'', does he give us the choice between cleanliness and basic freedom? Now, who wants it clean and who wants it dirty? That seems to be the question. Clearly, cleanliness has a price, and so if you want Canada to stay a pristine country, maybe we should give up some ''rights to jerkism''. Of course, the advocates of the talk radio culture will protest no doubt.
AND NOW TO MASS MURDER
If Canuckistan has a chance to fight back at Amerika, is it not on the subject of mass murder? Now Mr. Steyn called the men of our ''unmanned dominion'' cowards, because unarmed Quebecers failed to stop the lone gunman in Montreal in 1989. And what did you do, you proud sons of the country of John Wayne, to stop the killer at Virginia Tech in 2007? I think at last, we'll have a field day over Steyn this time! So, where were the famous Virginians when the iconic Cho irrupted in 2007? What! In this land of heroes, there was no one to stop him! Where was Captain America? Sleeping, I guess. And Jack Bauer? You idiots dismantled CTU, remember! And Jesse James? You morons killed him. So, at last Mark Steyn will have to come to his senses: if Virginia Tech has proved anything, it is that Amerika certainly fares no better than Canuckistan or Quebecistan in terms of slow response and inability to stop the killer. What Amerika succeeded in however, was to give a fantastic exposure to Cho's videoclip through NBC.
