The Two Solitudes Intensify

I pondered about posting this in another thread, but I think it is deserving of its own discussion.

Here is about as glaring a reflection of the polarization happening in your country as I have seen. Truly sad.

The look is that Democrats were in favorable of that opinion, more than three-fifths, for Republicans, almost two-fifths of it. The main concern for Rs is that the opinion in your post were likely driven entirely by low approval.

Not that we don't have "two solitudes" up here; but that was about how French and English communities in Quebec lived in essentially two different realms with different schools, churches and media.

So, now that the language debates have mostly vanished from traditional conservative concerns...along with the last vestiges of English culture, like God Save The Queen and the Union Jack, we're going to end up with the same alternative truth universes the Americans have got themselves, if we allow further suburbanization and wealth stratification in our country too.

As an example, someone at work (God knows why!) leaves a copy of the Toronto Sun in the cafeteria every day. I'm not much of a sports fan anymore, so the only thing the Sun offers me when I have nothing else to read is a window into the Canadian conservative mind...a world where there's no more "French problem," but that's been replaced with an "Immigration Crisis," and of course a world where there's no such thing as climate chang...even in the rapidly melting Arctic.

But, even I was taken aback by a front page cover of some Muslim guy with a beard arrested for committing some crime, while the story of family demanding an investigation of police and EMS who allowed a young Muslim victim of a stabbing to essentially bleed to death on the street, instead of rushing him off to hospital immediately, was buried on page 12. I'm sure if I opened the Star that day, I'd see the reverse, and that's the point: we're getting our two different worldviews from our media now that don't intersect with each other, and don't necessarily intersect with real facts either!

Lol.


Not only a poll w/ nothing supporting it but a poll from twitter at that.


RNGs threads and posts are evidence that it is Canadian trolls, not Russian ones that are trying to disrupt our nation.


The great wall of the north is coming

It's an image, but it shows the axios.com source, if you type that into your browser, you could find the underlying poll, and the methodology used.

If he clicked on the "HERE" it would become obvious, but these advanced computer skills are a challenge to some.

For the computer challenged, if Sabcat knew enough to click on the embedded link he would have found:
