While here in America spoiled millionaire football players show their disrespect for the country by kneeling instead of standing for the National Anthem, up in Canada they’ve seen our knee and raised us a P.C. blather–as the Canadian Senate has voted to change their national anthem, “O, Canada,” to make it… “gender neutral” (https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/canada-votes-to-change-lyrics-of-national-anthem-to-make-it-gender-neutral/ar-BBIzzpO).
Yes, they will pluck out that horrible offensive heteronormative Hate line, “in all thy sons command,” and replace it with “in all of us command,” because Gays and Trannies can’t procreate so the very word “sons” is Hateful and Excluding and Not Affirming–“Blather Bingo! Bingo!”
Conservatives in the Senate fought this tooth and nail for 18 months, but the Liberals shut down debate last week and rammed it through.
Would you believe there are “activists” who say they’ve been toiling for 30 years to get this done? Now for them the challenge is to find some new thing to complain about.
Ironically, the song as originally written in 1908 said “doest all of us command,” but I guess that was a little hard to sing, so they changed it.
No less a leftid icon than Margaret Atwood, who wrote The Hand-Made’s Tail, hailed this change in the anthem as just off-the-charts great.
Prediction: Very soon they will be demanding more changes because “O, Canada” is still not Inclusive enough. Just for starters, it excludes non-Canadians. Dude, how can you have a national anthem that, like, excludes most of the whole world? It also presupposes some kind of “patriot love,” a concept which eats away at liberals’ innards like a belt of battery acid. Every leftid knows that real bona fide genuine patriotism, a la John Kerry or Hillary Clinton, means to loathe and detest your country and root for its enemies.
So the activists won’t have to get lives, after all. They’ll just go on to the next Cause.
