    Absolutely correct. Not agreeing with me does not automatically make them a bigot.

    Unfortunately for you it's your own freely expressed bigoted prejudices that make you a bigot, not the disagreement in and of itself.

        But you've said I was a bigot for my stance on bigotry, which I freely accepted (thanks Karl Popper).

        How do you reconcile this with your attempted redefinition of the term?

        • “admitted” - now here’s a word with negative connotations that often reveals more about the writer’s personal bias and/or attempt to spin people’s perceptions than the subject’s actions.


          Eg.1 When Amanda asked Jason about his sexual orientation. Jason responded that he was gay. Amanda then said: So you admit that you are gay! Jason then said: Ahhh yeaaah that’s what I said.
          Headline next day: Jason ADMITS to being gay!!!!

          Eg.2 When Amanda asked Jason about his vehicle. Jason responded that he drove a Dodge hybrid. Amanda then said: So you admit that you drive a hybrid! Jason then said: Ahhh yeaaah that’s what I said...




          Andrew Scheer says he did register for the U.S. draft, faces more questions on taxes

          “Scheer admitted on Thursday that he is a dual Canada-U.S. citizen and received his American citizenship as a child through his father, and has been under pressure to clarify to what extent he has fulfilled the draft registration and tax filing requirements placed on dual citizens by the American government.

          Under U.S. federal law, all male U.S. citizens must register for the draft with the Selective Service System within 30 days of reaching the age of 18.”

          Interesting that the US register appears to be so blatantly sexist.

            You've said there's nothing I can do to change your stance on your discrimination (even on acknowledging your own prejudice). So why throw more effort at futility? You came out of the gates with a variation of the ol' "I'm not prejudiced, but <INSERT PREJUDICE HERE>" & that's all I needed to read to get a comprehensive assessment.

            It's not worth my time to try and talk a prejudiced septuagenarian boomer bigot out of his opinions, nor am I particularly interested in really nailing down the finer points of your bigotry & prejudice.

            Time for you to take a Prentice Pause & look in the mirror.

            I'm deeply sorry you feel insulted or offended by my shining a light on your prejudices yet again.
            noodle, you are the one who has it upside down and backwards.

            you and others with dual citizenship have advantages and options and alternatives that most other canadians do not. and you are willing to pretend that your allegiance to and citizenship in another country does not potentially conflict with your allegiance and citizenship in canada.

            you enjoy a position and circumstance of privilege that is prejudicial against those canadians who are "just" canadians. your accusing me of prejudice and discrimination by pointing that out simply shows you don't - or don't want to - understand the underlying issue and concerns.

            yes, a canadian is a canadian is a canadian. you are the one who wants to maintain a special class of canadian outside of that.

            it is indeed time for one of us to honestly look in the mirror.

              No, I most certainly do not. I do not expect any different treatment from Canadian officials or the Canadian government than any other Canadian, nor have I said otherwise. I would hope that I also wouldn't get treated differently by my fellow Canadians, but evidently that's just a bridge too far. To assume I would use my (objectively more valuable & flexible) German passport to get some sort of primacy or leg up on vs other Canadians is some Grade A projection & ignores my overwhelmingly egalitarian viewpoints across social, economic & political topics.

              I am a Canadian, through & through. No more & no less than you. And no more & no less than Scheer, for whom my concerns around his dual citizenship are entirely based in the coverup/non-disclosure & his blatant hypocrisy.

                ok, then revoke your German citizenship. Canada should not recognize dual citizenship as it results in circular arguments and essentially achieves nothing. It's a waste of time. Pick a citizenship and be done with it.

                • Whether you & Ken believe that Canada shouldn't recognize dual citizenship, they currently most assuredly do.

                  I have no desire to give up something valuable & beneficial so some conservatives on a forum put me in their "us" category vs the "them" one. I'm more than happy to not meet the criteria to be included in their group.

                  • My issue with Scheer and the review of candidates for Party leadership is that who is vetting them an why would you keep this secret. Either you know the optics are bad or just ignorant that the optics are bad.

                    • With the wolves circling Scheer, maybe it is time for him to take a few more insurance broker courses...

                          From what Top_Dawg can tell, ol' Scheer will be meelking a big fat government pension for life.

                          Time for you to get ahead.

                          • At least he has his massive experience as an insurance broker to fall back on and feed his family and put his kids in the finest private schools....

                            • ^ Just like JT, he can go back to being a drama teacher or snow board instructor when he is done. Rumour has it that JT could also do fake dance routines or dress up for parties if those other two options don't work out for him.

                              • Except that JT had an actual job as a teacher compared to Scheer who never sold a policy in his 'career'.

                                BTW, face the fact that JT is now is a second term PM for the next 5 years.
