Shame Canada!

In todays variation on the theme of "Bloody wogs, what do you expect from them anyway," do you suppose three-quarters of Canadians live in a dreamworld where they want the glory of achieving this goal for themselves?

More than three-quarters of Canadians said they didn't think the United States should try to promote the creation of democratic governments in other countries, according to an Associated Press-Ipsos poll.

Before you get too worked up about this just remember what someone else once said, "They're not even a real country anyway." And besides, all the cool kids think the same way:

President Bush is calling on European leaders to support his campaign to spread democracy abroad at a time people in many of those countries have doubts whether that should be the U.S. role in the world, Associated Press polling found.

A majority of people in Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Spain said they thought it should not be the U.S. role to spread democracy, according to AP-Ipsos polls. A majority of those living in Canada, Mexico and South Korea also disagreed with that role.

It just goes to show that the default human program is to hate foreigners and think they deserve to suffer for, well, being foreign. Why, after all, should a bunch of strangers who don't even speak Our Tribe's Language have a nice life? Then they might get rich and -- oh horrors! -- compete with Our Tribe, the Good and Deserving People. Nice, civilized people are perhaps more susceptible to this attitude since they don't believe themselves capable of it.
