Munk Debate on the Global “Refugee” Crisis: Steyn & Farage vs. Globalist Pantywaists

Steyn and Farage go up against a couple “Globalist” pantywaists – Louise Arbour and Simon Schama, just drop the a.

Steyn & Farage Munk DebateBe it resolved, give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free… It is the worst humanitarian crisis since the Second World War. Over 300,000 dead in Syria. One and a half million injured or disabled. Four and a half million people fleeing the country as refugees. And Syria is just one of a growing number of failed or failing states in the Middle East and North Africa. How should developed nations respond to human suffering on this mass scale? Do the prosperous societies of the West, including Canada and the U.S., have a moral imperative to assist as many refugees as they reasonably and responsibly can? Or, is this a time for vigilance and restraint in the face a wave of mass migration that risks upending Western nations’ openness, tolerance and ultimately their very way of life?

K and I will be attending this knockdown drag-out this evening.

We’ve got front row seats which should improve our aim considerably.

It will livestream at 7 pm. (see above)

Pre-debate interviews are streaming at 2:30 PM below

    Any opportunity to hear Mark Stein is a treat.

    Can’t stand Louise Arbour.

      The Germans gave us the word “schadenfreude”, because there was no word in the English language for the concept and it was a word we really needed. You here it a lot these days in English.

      The Germans also have a word, “backpfeifengesicht”, this is a word we also need in English. It means “a face that needs slapping”, you could describe someone as having a backpfeifengesicht. Louise Arbour has a backpfeifengesicht.

    Arbour is a scary piece of work …. she has ridiculous power and yet she is , imo, disturbed.

    • marty_p

      I am actually surprised she didn’t find a way to sneak the Palestinians into her argument.

  • V10_Rob

    The audience applause about a passport indeed making someone a Canadian was disheartening.

    • Surele Surele

      they did not differentiate between being a Canadian citizen and a Canadian; agree, it’s disheartening.

    • Didn’t you get the memo? Canadian citizenship is a party favour, we hand it out to anyone. This proves how tolerant we are.

    Thank you for live streaming this. It was very good. Can’t stand Arbour. She’s the quintessential liberal. Mark Steyn was terrific as usual and enjoyed listening to the Simon and Nigel as well. Would love to know if the vote changed at all after the debate.

  • Surele Surele

    Please post the post debate vote; but I have no illusions. Mark on Oakley remarked as much; mostly downtown, lefty audience.

  • Dana Garcia

    So how does the follow-up voting work — audience members send a postcard?

  • dance…dancetotheradio

    Schama is a delusional fucking faggot.
    Arbour is just a French Allred.

  • Ho Hum

    It will be interesting to see if any minds were changed. Clearly Steyn and Farrage won the debate hands down. They are winning the online poll by 70%

      I watched the whole thing.
      It was a hard slog.

      • Ho Hum

        I did too. Steyn was AMAZING! I wish we could convince him to move back to Canada and run for the leadership of the Conservative party.

        • Surele Surele

          Let’s start a movement: bring Steyn back.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            He’d be amazing in Parliament.

          • Ho Hum

            Imagine what he would do to Justin in a campaign debate!

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          That’s a very good idea.
          How could the Liberals say that he was just visiting?
