...how stupid Americans are! As the French would say, but of course (read that with a French accent). Tonight on Studio 2, a Candain Interview/Magazine type show, the group that covers international relations discussed Peter King's comments instead of the implications for Canada about these (alleged) homegrown Islamists. The crew of Janice Stein, Richard Gwyn, and Jeffrey Kopstein, discussed how "uninformed" Peter King (R, NY) was to suggest Americans have to worry about al Qaeda coming across the border and that there is a large al Qaeda presence in Canada. They all suggest there was no (or virtually no) al Qaeda presence in Canada. Fortunately, the host Steve Paikin, kept their feet to the fire a bit, asking them, "how do you know that?" They patted themselves on the back about how ignorant Peter King is, as if that will help them sleep easier at night. No attempt was made to look in the mirror, as they would demand of America, and ask "why do they hate us?"
Many of the usual media suspects in the Great White North will be twisting themselves into pretzels to blame this on Iraq and Afghanistan. They were already quick to discuss what was referred to as "Bush talk" about these folks hating democracy and our way of life. The multi-culti crowd will turn this into a narrative they can understand, i.e., some form of victimhood.
