Sometimes you just have to take a break from reality to have a good laugh. It’s good for the soul, and this interview by Brian Lilley of SUN News TV fits the bill perfectly as he exposes the wonderfully whacky world inside the head of anti-everything Luam Kidane from the ‘No One is Illegal’ organization:

The consensus in my circle is that Lilley deserves some kind of journalistic achievement award for keeping a straight face as long as he did. He couldn’t suppress his laughter, however, when Kidane declared that Canada was a white supremacist country that wasn’t a “legitimate entity.”
The other really funny part (and it’s so hard to choose!) is when she talks about how it’s not the Canadian state that provides services to people; according to Kidane the buses, for example, operate because “members of our community” make them run. I guess she figures that members of the exploited worker class somehow bought buses for themselves to park in their driveways so they can heroically rise each day to drive other oppressed workers to their place of employment so they, too, can be abused by racist, white supremacist, colonialist settler, capitalist monsters who forced them to immigrate to Canada.
Funniest thing I’ve watched in a long time – almost as good as Seinfeld re-runs. I couldn’t help but wonder if the bizzaro world inside Kidane’s head bears any resemblance to Salvador Dali’s ‘paranoiac critical’ hallucinations.
What I really want to know, though, is why Kidane or any of the people she supports want to stay here in this awful, awful non-country of Canada. If she truly cared about the oppressed victims of evil Canadian white supremacists wouldn’t it be better if she’d help these poor people immigrate as refugees to human rights bastions such as Iran or Syria or the Congo or maybe the Sudan?
