Indeed, the political player in Canada is compelled to utterly and abjectly recant any deviation, large or small, from the politically correct agenda of patronizing socialist and defeatist cant. Witness Dave Burghardt's humiliating and useless apology in the face of the dominant Canadian culture of surrender:
To understand why the West seems so weak in the face of a laughably primitive enemy, its necessary to examine the wholesale transformation undergone by almost every advanced nation since World War Two. Today, in your typical election campaign, the political platforms of at least one party in the United States and pretty much every party in the rest of the West are all but exclusively about those secondary impulses: government health care, government day care, government paternity leave. We've elevated the secondary impulses over the primary ones: national defense, self-reliance and reproductive activity. If you dont go forth and multiply you can't afford all those secondary-impulse programs whose costs are multiplying a lot faster than you are. Most of the secondary-impulse stuff falls under the broad category of self-gratification issues.
Burghardt should have let his balls hang out… instead he withdrew them at the first little boo of political correctness.
Burghardt says he's "truly sorry for a number of things I wrote … some of the things I wrote cannot be excused. I take full responsibility for any pain I have caused."
