I know said I’d stop posting Canada email. But this one just came in. I love it:
Dear Mr. Goldberg,
While I consider your article (Nov 15, 2002) to be typical of American propiganda and distortion of fact, I do cherish your right to express yourself. I for one voted for PM Chrteien because he is anti-American and for no other reason. As you probably know, we have an extremist hate group/fascist political party here called the Canadian Alliance. They are actually the official opposition and garnered something like 17% of the vote in the last fderal election (though completely concentrated in the racist and intolerant West)… (See attached Word document of hate quotes by the party MP’s and leaders) The Alliiance projects many American style policies. I feel that our rejection of their ideology is more a rejection of their racism, sexism, homophobia, war on the poor, and desire to make Canada a christian autocracy. Please remember that when we claim to be anti-american, most of that sentiment lies in the fact that we are anti Canadian Alliance; this political party has forged a synergy between being a radical nazi hate group and pro-American policies.
I feel that most Canadians don’t exactly recognize this. I do Mr. Goldberg mourn for your lost freedoms as an American under the Bush fascist regime. I do recognize that with the USA PATRIOT act, you could be charged as a “terrorist” for correctly critiquing the policies of the murderous monster, Bush the butcher. I wish your country wisdom in the next election, as well as the luck that Ms. Clinton will run and be eleted president. I believe she would continue the work of the epic leader Bill Clinton, who without a doubt was the best president America ever had.
I will add that as much as I may disagre with some of the views you express in your columns, I read you anyways. I think you are a good writer and I often use your articles as a point of reference to people who I convince of my political views here in the Great Socialist North. Keep up the good work and making my job easier.
