Do the Jews control Canada?
Marci McDonald's semi-literate book claims that the Christian Right controls Canada under Stephen Harper.
Right. That explains why Henry Morgentaler received the Order of Canada.
But McDonald does do something fun: she makes an enemies list, Richard Nixon-style.
But seriously: if you're going to make a conspiracy theory, how on Earth do you exclude the Jews?
They're disproportionately represented in Ottawa.
But that's creepy -- and smacks of racism.
Much safer to beat up Christians, and make up blacklists naming them, right?
That was my point I tried to make on Friday, on CBC's Power and Politics. A show where all three of the panelists were Jewish, by the way.
You can see the video clip here (fast forward to 1 hour, 14 minutes into the show). If I can find this on YouTube, I'll post that instead.
