David Johnston Gets Re-Educated By The Thought Police


In today’s world, you never know when an innocent comment will be turned into a massive manufactured outrage.

That was the case for Governor General David Johnston, who found himself on the receiving end of outrage from the politically-correct thought police.

On Saturday, David Johnston said “We’re a country based on immigration, going right back to our, quote, Indigenous people, unquote, who were immigrants as well, 10, 12, 14,000 years ago.”

Pretty reasonable stuff. We can all see Johnston’s point here: Canada is made up of people who came here from other parts of the world, and their descendants. Thousands of years ago, those who society refers to as Indigenous people came here from another part of the world.

There is nothing wrong with Johnston’s statement, because it is factually correct.

Of course, facts don’t matter to the politically correct thought police – just feelings.

And Johnston’s comments seemed to generate tons of angry feelings. Here’s a sample:

As is usually the case when political correctness of any kind is breached, the “offender” quickly “corrected” their statement:

Fair enough. It’s reasonable to say that Indigenous people are the first migrants – or first “immigrants” to Canada. And yet, even Johnston’s correction didn’t appease the anger. The new “outrage” was focused on Johnston’s use of “our” in his statement:

What’s the point of apologizing when even the apology gets attacked?

When even an apology or “correction” doesn’t change things, it’s obvious that the politically correct thought police want to silence people, not have discussions with them. The point of “re-educating” people to the politically correct line is to silence any alternative viewpoints.

An apology is often then taken as a sign of weakness, and the attacks only intensify.

We’ve reached the point where more and more people will just want to stay quiet instead of saying anything, because the politically correct thought police are out to gang up on anyone who says anything that doesn’t fit the “allowed” discourse, even when it’s true.

This is very dangerous, because it is stifling debate and spreading an attitude of fear throughout our society.

However, there is a way around it: People can just stop apologizing or “correcting” their statements.

It’s possible to ignore the outrage and just keep sharing opinions – regardless of whether some find it controversial or not.

 

By refusing to apologize, you are refusing to play the game the way the thought police want it to be played. This is still a somewhat free society, and people just have to live with hearing things they don’t agree with. That’s part of freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

Every successful society needs a diversity of opinion and expression, and only by ignoring the manufactured outrage of the politically correct thought police will we be able to protect our freedom to think for ourselves and express ourselves as we see fit.

The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.

  1. When the NAI (North American Indian) arrived ~14,000 years ago there were already people living in the Americas. Those people were my ancient ancestors too.

  2. Enough of this “politically correct ” crap. Get a bloody life. Go mow the lawn or vacuum the house. This is totally out of control.

  3. Do these people not have jobs or anything better to do? They need hobbies or to volunteer. Go help the elderly or new immigrants. Good lord what is going on, it’s like people have lost their minds with this stupidity. I’m I going to get attacked over this comment? Time will tell.

  4. Ahhh yes … everyone is “offended” these days … I say get over yourselves, you are just not that special!
    Get a life … get a job … get something to do besides feel you’re such a special snowflake that you should take offence to every nuance of anything anyone says, when everyone else knows full well the actual well-intentioned meaning of the statement. Get over yourself!!

  5. I think that comment from David Johnston is meaningless. We know from history that there has been migration all over the world when people were looking for food and refuge. What is the point of David Johnston? That we have to accept the immigrants like our own? In any society, immigrants have to gain the respect and approval of existing populations who live there already. And we expect immigrants to integrate and live as Canadians. When they come and try to change our rules, laws and behaviour, we tend to be belligerent and NOT WELCOMING. So what David Johnston said is crap and meaningless. He should talk about the integration of immigrants with our society. DIVERSITY IS THE BEGINNING OF CHAOS. If everybody pulls on the blanket in different directions, it will break. Immigrants have to work with Canadians whether they like it or not if they want to stay. The same rules apply for any other countries in the world. So assimilate and integrate for YOUR peace of mind.
