A racist behind every tree: That’s how our elites see Canada

With two national polls showing the vast majority of Canadians support federal Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch’s call for screening potential immigrants for anti-Canadian values, the real issue is this.

Why is an idea so popular with the public so unpopular among what the great American conservative thinker Thomas Sowell describes as those who consider themselves society’s “anointed”?

That is, self-proclaimed “wise elites”, who believe it is their role to protect Canadians from their own opinions.

This not only includes Liberal and NDP politicians, but many Conservative leadership candidates, along with media pundits and academics.
