One of my mum’s friends on facebook just posted that she’s signing off for a week, until all the fuss dies down, because “it’s America’s problem, not ours!”, and I’m just thinking, bitch, let me tell you some things.

The value of the American dollar affects the value of our dollar, which means the American economy affects our economy.
Turnip’s hateful rhetoric has inspired Canadian politicians, so that the three main contenders for leadership of one of the major political parties are engaged in a race to the bottom to see who can be the worst.
The bullshit of the last year as emboldened white supremacists, resulting in vandalized synagogues, attacks on Muslim-Canadians, and white supremacist literature being dumped in neighbourhoods.
This is absolutely our goddamn problem too.
