Bernier Points Out Hypocrisy Of ‘Cultural Appropriation’ After CBC Promotes ‘World Hijab Day’

What are the rules?

People’s Party of Canada Maxime Bernier recently tweeted about an example of glaring hypocrisy.

For years, the left has kept pushing the ‘cultural appropriation’ idea, slamming anyone who ‘dares’ to wear an outfit or style their hair in a way that supposedly ‘belongs’ to another group.

This has left people wondering ‘what are the rules,’ since many felt that by embracing examples of different cultures they were doing exactly what the left claimed to want.

Yet, the left seems to be just fine with people wearing Hijabs, even if the people wearing them aren’t Muslim.

And Bernier pointed out how hypocritical this all is after CBC London ‘invited’ people to try on a Hijab:

Leftist logic:

❌ Wear a Chinese dress at prom
❌ Wear an aboriginal costume at Halloween
❌ Wear dreadlocks if you’re white
❌ Teach yoga if you’re not Indian
= Cultural appropriation

✅ Try on a hijab on World Hijab Day
= Diversity

And why is a national broadcaster promoting this? Imam Tawhidi explained that CBC shouldn’t be picking sides:

“Women should be able to wear and not wear whatever they want. However you (a national broadcaster funded by the taxpayers) have no right to promote a particular religious practice. If you promote World Hijab Day then you must also give the No Hijab Day an equal promotion.”

Bernier is saying what many people are thinking: Why do the elites condemn some so-called ‘cultural appropriation,’ while pushing another example of it?

Either it’s all unacceptable, or none of it is acceptable.

And it’s funny how cultural appropriation is never applied to non-Western societies.

After all, democracy is an invention of the Western world. The business suit is an invention of the Western world. So, aren’t all politicians outside the Western world who are democratically elected and wear business suits practicing cultural appropriation?

Of course it’s absurd, but by the standards of the left basically everything becomes ‘cultural appropriation’ in one way or another.

That’s why those who get attacked by the left need to dismiss the shrieking insanity of those who cry ‘cultural appropriation,’ and why common sense people across the political spectrum need to stand against it and push back.

Maxime Bernier seems to be the only sensible politician Canada has left.

It’s a coin toss whether the ‘elites’ jerk around a certain percentage of the population with contradictory and illogical edicts to test the malleability of the citizenry. Or, they themselves don’t recognize their blatant hypocrisy.

50 – 60 years ago women/girls commonly in Canada wore head scarves in winter put on very similarly to keep the cold from the front of their coat buttons and pulled over our lower faces to stop the cold on our nose and cheeks? it was practical then as we walked everywhere, nothing religious about it, but I guess it separates Canadians again so they have to have a world day for it? (in fact I remember my father and grandfather tying their hats on with big square scarves, nice and warm)

Where can I get a man’s burka? I intend wearing it when I vote.

There are no mens’ burkas. It is mysogenistic apparel to keep women in their places and safe from the lustful men who go apeshite over a misplaced hair and sometimes murder a woman for allowing a hair to show.

NOW THAT’S AN IDEA! You could vote as 6 different people; with fake ID of course.

I was completely confused by “The Hijab Day”. Were we supposed to burn the hijab? Women did that not so long ago with bras!

This gentleman is amazing. Read the Imam’s letter to Trudeau. Wow.

I would not be surprised to discover Trudeau is an honorary member of the terrorist ICC, the Iranian Canadian Congress, a fake organization pretending to represent Iranians in Canada. It doesn’t.

CBC should look up Vida Movahed and see what she thinks about promoting hijab.

How sad it is that westerners think it is just fine that 100’s of million of women in this world of ours will go through their entire life never knowing what it like “to feel the wind in her hair”.

If we are not Italian can we eat spaghetti? If we are not Chinese can we eat Chinese food? Make up your own absurd questions around this topic.

What is your opinion Spencer on Max? Do you believe that he is splitting the votes from the PC? Love his common sense and logic about many of the political forum, yet, knowing what Canadian’s goal is, to rid Canada of Trudeau, is Max in the running for the PM? Love your blog and appreciate the integrity of it’s truth! HAGD!
