Canadians think Jagmeet Singh’s religion could hurt his chances of winning an election

New? Hardly.

We’re just haters!

How could we dislike an anti-Israel race-baiting vote whore who refuses to denounce the “martyrs” of the Air India bombing?

    Meh. I have a much larger problem that he is heading the NDP. I got very little qualms with him being a Sikh.

    • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

      Sikh’s are hooking up with Muslims to take over Canadian positions of power.

      I can’t find the article anyore but there was a big write up in Alberta media
      about them putting their differences aside for the common goal of gaining power.

      In many places in Canada it’s entirely foreign born candidates
      running for power,. not a single Canadian born, let alone white candidate running.

      Indians, Pakistanis and Chinese have Canada in their sight.

      • Drunk by Noon ✓

        I saw the same article. It also alleged that there was some level of cooperation between elements in the Sikh political community and the Muslim Brotherhood.
        I was always told those two groups were mortal enemies.
        Maybe they hate whites more?
        It’s now been memory holed.
        I can easily see members from those groups pooling resources to dive up the spoils, especially if they can never be criticized.

        • canminuteman

          They are enemies, but the enemy of my enemy is my friend, so they will team up with Islam to exterminate Whitey, then they will go after each other.

        • The Deplorable Rosenmops

          Politics makes strange bedfellows.

        • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

          Doesn’t sound like the same article.
          It was just about Muslim and Sikh candidates in Alberta
          putting aside political and religious differences to further
          “More diversity in elections”..

          Someone you’d read on the CBC or Huffington post.

      • Jabberwokk

        I find that unlikely considering the Sikh’s have a long bloody history against the Muslims in regions near the India/Pakistani border. Sikh’s are generally more respectful and polite in my experience and mostly keep to themselves. They have little in common. In fact there is evidence supporting that Sikhism was created to protect the Hindu from Islam. Take that as you will.

        I find increasingly to have them more in common with Chivalristic Knights or the the Bushido following Samurai than Islam.

        • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

          That’s a bunch of Coke commercial kumbaya nonsense.

          In BC, the most violent gangs are Sikhs.

          The majority of slumlords are Sikhs (Chinese and Persians are second)

          The majority of the trouble makers in Yaletown and Granville bars are Sikhs.

          BC Parliament house was raided by RCMP because of the shady Sikhs

          Cab drivers arrested for sexually assulting women in Vancouver are pretty much all Sikhs.

          Air India and the Sikh temple attacks

          Vaisakhi Parade which is nothing more then a parade in Surrrey
          honoring Sikh terrorists.

          Ujjal Dosanjh a Sikh politician in BC was attacked with an iron bar
          for opposing it.

          Sikh’s are nothing more them Islam lite.

          • Jabberwokk

            Ok now you just straight up wrong.

            I don’t judge an ideology by it’s abuses.

            there was a Sikh defending the right to say “Merry Christmas in Saskatchewan” (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatchewan/regina-sikh-society-puts-up-christmas-billboard-1.3377720) and I have personally observed them to be polite towards elders of any stripe.

            You want to play “whose sin is it anyway?” Fine. Hitler and Mussolini Were Europeans and thus all Europeans are guilty of there behavior?

            Unfair? Your damn right. So stop it.

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            You’ve been eating too many Samosa’s at Diversity is our strength parades.

            And not to forget the first real act of terrorism in canada committed by sikhs; the daylight murder of policeman & immigration officer William Hopkinson in 1914 outside Vancouver courthouse by sikh terrorists.
            The sikh killer is hailed as a hero among sikh community & each year they commemorate his death anniversary.

          • Jabberwokk

            Never been to one.

            And yes of course I can because they are a warrior culture, like the knights and samurai I compared them too. All of which had members who did horrible things and did not live up to their creeds. There are Canadians how have comited Massacres (here’s a list:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_massacres_in_Canada)as well but we don’t take that as a condemnation for our way of life do we?

            You can’t possibly expect me to take seriously the accusation that there is any comparison of the Guru Granth Sahib and the Koran Or the Life of Guru Nanak and the life of Muhammed. So you have no basis for your claims that Sikh is Islam Lite especially when it is a historical fact they fought they were formed more or less to combat the Mughal empire.

            I’m sorry you had some bad experiences with Sikhs making poor choices and possibly being very bad at being sikh. The question comes are they acting in accordance with their beliefs or not. That’s my beef with Islam is because they are. It’s my beef with Nazi’s because they are. It’s my beef with Christians who don’t forgive because they must. It’s my beef with Athiests who hold on to moral absolutes hanging them on nothing.

            You simply don’t know what your talking about.

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            Those people are long gone, it’s just thugs and gangsters wearing the uniform. The same way the Yakuza in Japan pretend they are like the Samurai. and the Mohawk Warrior Society claim they defend natives.

            Just common criminals larping as warriors while they prey on their own and others.

            People who blow up planes and stab each other over whether tables and chairs should be allowed in a temple dining room have no business in positions of power in a western nation.

          • Jabberwokk

            Neither compelling nor relevant to my contention nor my argument.

            It’s not the people. It’s what they believe. And if we believe like they do we would have the same results.

            I believe in the supremacy of ideas. Not peoples.

            You are, and always will be, what you believe.

          • Alain

            There are not that many Sikhs in Saskatchewan whereas in the lower mainland of BC they are far from a small minority, which explains your experience in my view. Their track record in BC is far from honourable to say the least. There have also been a few “honour killings” by Sikhs in BC I might add. Yes, I grant there are some exceptions just as there are with Muslims, but that does not change anything. When I was in India in my younger days I found the Sikhs there arrogant and lacking civility whereas the Hindus were the opposite.

          • P_F

            Religiously they maybe different from islam but ideologically & culturally they are not different from muslims.

          • Jabberwokk

            I spent 4 years in a Mennonite town where 90% of them treated me like dirt. The other 10% would slice off the left arm if they thought it would make my day any better. When I moved to Winnipeg I found it to be the opposite. That’s when I learned not to judge a world view by it’s adherents behavior but by there adherence to their subscribed belief.

            That’s Why I read Mein Kampf, The Communist Manifesto, The Bible, and the Koran. I’m finishing up Mere Chrsitianity and a few Ravi Zacharias books then I’m going to tackle Guru Granth Sahib.

            The more a population from the third grows the quicker they slide back into that style of living.

          • PaxCan

            Drugs Inc., a documentary TV series focusing on the drug trade, turned its eyes northward for one of its installments and Surrey B.C. got the dubious honour of representing Canada. Guess where all the Sikhs live in B.C.?

            A year ago I caught a news-feed out of B.C. where the discussion was about Surrey’s high and rising crime rate, particularly violent crime, amid a dropping crime rate province wide.

            Here in the Toronto area it’s not uncommon to hear a report about a stabbing or a shooting occurring in Brampton. Guess where all the Sikhs live in Ontario?

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            Granville Street (Vancouver version of Yonge st) is fast becoming a no go zone because of Sikh’s and Yaletown (upscale restauarant, condo, club area) is becoming the same.

            White people flee right before the clubs close down because it’s all gangster types hanging around until 3am.

            These people stab each other over chairs in a temple..

            Import a third world population and you get third world country
            along with their third world way of doing politics.

            Years ago the city and police forced bars and clubs to keep records
            of patrons and required everyone to scan their BCID at the door
            to keep tabs on and weed out the gangsters.

            It got shut down not because of privacy complaints but calls of racism….. which is basically an admission of who’s causing the problems.

    • marty_p

      I couldn’t care less that he is a Sikh. I could never vote for the NDP after seeing how they screwed up Ontario when Bob Rae was in power and the fact that the NDP are full of anti-Semites and anti-Israel pro BDS supporters.

      • Jabberwokk

        I’m on my 3rd NDP provincial government. They have accomplished the same effect as a swarm of proverbial locusts.

    • Drunk by Noon ✓

      That’s a red herring.
      Nobody cares about that or the color of his skin.
      I do care about him using that as a shield by always playing the persecuted race or religion card, which he is already doing.

      • Jabberwokk

        It’s a red herring that I think him being a member of the NDP is a problem and him being a Sikh is not? How?

        • Drunk by Noon ✓

          Not what you said, what he said about people not voting for him because he was a Sikh or because his skin was brown.

    This is straight out of Obama’s play book.
    PROVE that you are NOT RACISTS by electing him Canada!
    Prove it, you can’t!
    That’s his campaign, marinated in white guilt, and fueled by a cheering media.
    You can do worse than Trudeau, you can get this animal who will disassemble Canada and if you raise a voice you will be denounced as a racist.
    At least you can criticize Justin Trudeau, just think about a PM you can say nothing about.

    • Dave

      “At least you can criticize Justin Trudeau” I thought ridiculing the mentally deficient was supposed to be taboo too. I guess as long as he/she/it is white, it’s ok.

      • Drunk by Noon ✓

        Try out the converse of what you just said.
        Any criticism of non-whites will be rigorously punished.
        This Singh character is highly dangerous to your liberties Canada.

    • k1992

      He’s not going to appeal to conservative leaning voters – to state the obvious. But he is nutsy left-wing and “progressive” enough that he might actually siphon off votes from the 47 year okl Boy Wonder. In other words, he might split the left enough for a conservative win next time around.

        Sometimes the second generation is worse. The original immigrants are often busy just getting settled in a new country and don’t have time for trouble, unlike Junior.

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        He was born in Scarborough but his history isn’t a playing hockey
        and drinking Tim’s. His entire career so far has been furthering Sikh politics

        Like I said before, Sikh’s are Islam lite.
        they intergrate somewhat but no matter where they were born. Canada
        comes last

        • PaxCan

          When he was an Ontario MPP he saw it fit to waste parliamentary time advancing a motion to condemn India for its quelling of the Sikh uprising in the early 1980s and to condemn it a genocide when it obviously wasn’t. Yet, he can’t bring himself to condemn the Air India bombers. For this he is unfit for PM.

          If Sikhs and their Canadian born spawn think of themselves as Canadians why do they see it fit to obsesses about events that happened in another country and have nothing to do with us while seeking to drag us into their foreign grievances?

          • The Deplorable Rosenmops

            Exactly.

      • Alain

        Could very well be the case.

  • Clink9

    If they find him a the local Rub N Tug he’ll win for sure.

  • J. C.

    He’s an NDP’er…

    His Sikhism is irrelevant.

  • Dana Garcia

    Everybody knows turbans mean “I’m diverse so FU.”

    • The Deplorable Rosenmops

      A lot of Sikhs don’t wear turbans, for example Ujjal Dosanjh. Dosanjh was also very critical of the radicals who eventually blew up the Air India Plane, even before they did it, and in fact was physically attacked for criticizing them.

      Singh seems ostentatious about his turban, and wears it in a strange style that makes him look like he has a cone head. Very disturbing to hear that he won’t condemn the Air India bombers. Things are going backwards. I sure hope he is never elected.

      Maybe he will take ethnic votes away from the Liberal and allow the Conservatives to win. This is our best hope.

      • Canadian Born

        His head looks like he is from outer space. I have never and will never vote NDP. I will vote Conservative, even though I really don’t like the candidate. Liberals are unstable and the voters that put Junior in, really show how unstable they are. Canada is really, really screwed because we do not have a candidate that knows how to represent Canadians first.

      • P_F

        His is radical style of turban. Check out the pictures of sikh terrorists you’ll understand what I mean. No ordinary sikh will tie his turban in this style neither would keep his beard flowing to compare check the photos of some sikh soldiers from indian army.

  • I have nothing against Sikhism or Sikhs (except for the Sikhs who blow entire families out of the sky but that’s a different story). Singh’s problem is that he is another Trudeau with fruity platitudes and pink turban. If I wouldn’t vote for a French-Canadian Trudeau, why would I vote for a Sikh one?

    I’m equal-opportunity that way.

  • canminuteman

    Part of multiculturalism is tribal politics. In every multicultural society politics becomes a tribal battle to see who can get the biggest share of the spoils. The various tribes will fight over the dying carcass of Canada like jackals on a gnu. There is really no point in voting going forward because if the guy in power is from another tribe you are screwed regardless of party affiliation. Tribe will always trump party,

    • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

      The problem is white’s aren’t tribal enough anymore.

      The third world on the other hand… 100X more tribal then blacks in the west
      who happily vote simply because someone is black.

    So does he have an extensive military history, like his Sikh brother in Turdeau’s cabinet. He should at least state that he was on the beaches of Normandy. The Toronto crowd should like him though, as he is against pipelines and wants all resource development approved by whiny indians.

    Nah it’s his party of wackos and his wackjob political views.

  • Am I right in saying that Sikhs are allowed to flout certain laws that other Canadians have to obey? If so, not only should he not be allowed in Parliament, he should not be allowed in Canada.

    Either he should be made to obey the Law, or non-one else should be made to.

    • Alain

      Yes, that is the case in Canada. I mean not being required to follow the same laws as other Canadians in certain situations.

  • PaxCan

    He won’t win. That’s a given. It’s not because he’s Sikh it’s because the odds of the NDP ever forming a government now or in the foreseeable future is unlikely.

    With that said I think Jagmeet will prove to be ballot box poison and the NDP’s showing may be so disastrous he may be forced to resign because he will make the NDP unelectable even more so. It’ll be interesting to see the polling numbers come election time. Remember, he won by stuffing the ballot with Sikh votes by signing them up as new members. It’s the same shit Ujal Dosanjh pulled in B.C. politics.

    Lead up polls are pointless. They’ll be tainted by the social desirability bias where the respondents will answer in accordance to what they think will make them look good to society though privately they may think the opposite. We have a secret ballot here and that’s what matters.

    It’s not just whites who are put off by the idea of a Sikh PM. It’s also other non-whites such as Asians. They’re as race conscious as the rest of us and maybe even more so. They have no interest in being governed by a people whose skin tone they find displeasing. There is no unity among Canada’s non-white population except in the cause of removing whitey from his position in Canadian society so they can posses it. And after that happens it’ll be a free for all and all bets are off.

    What I’m hoping for is that the NDP will siphon off enough votes away from the LPC that it will allow the CPC to cruise down the middle of a split vote. What’s more is that those safe Liberal seats in Sikh heaving ridings are no longer assured.

    • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

      Alberta says hi!

      Even the NDP never saw that coming..

      • PaxCan

        NDP governments at the provincial level are not unheard of. At the Federal level it’s a different story.

        Besides, correct me if I’m wrong here but I believe the NDP victory in Alberta can be explained as a protest vote much like how the NDP became the official opposition last government due to a wave of protest votes in Quebec.

  • DMB

    I am personally more concerned about Jagmeet Singh (presumably) wearing a Kirpan which is a Sikh knife or sword on him since he is an orthodox Sikh. I find it objectionable that he can conceal and carry a weapon on him for religious reasons while the rest of us can not.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirpan

    • PaxCan

      Sikhs can wear a small plastic replica of a kirpan around their neck the way some Christians wear a cross and it serves the same purpose as wearing a kirpan at the hip. This is how orthodox Sikhs are able to board planes since airlines won’t allow them to board wearing a kirpan.

      The point here is that Sikhs have the option to accommodate the sensitivities of Canadians yet have taken every opportunity to piss us off and shove their religion in our faces expecting us to accommodate them when they have the choice to accommodate us.

      They’re as religiously chauvinistic and aggressive as Muslims which is why both poll so low here in opinion polls.
