Embarrassing: Canada Changes National Anthem to be ‘Inclusive.’ And It Sucks…
Canada's been hard at work trying to become more "progressive." What does that look like? Terrible healthcare. Also, a slightly modified national anthem. Because the current lyrics are offensive to women... Or something.
Canada lawmakers have voted to change the country's national anthem to make the lyrics gender neutral, a move that comes as the new Liberal government focuses on being more inclusive toward women.
The line in question? "And all thy woman shall be enslaved as lesser creatures forever and ever, amen." Just kidding. The lyrical offender is much more, well, not offensive. At all.
The bill would change the English version of O Canada to remove the words "in all thy sons command" and replace them with "in all of us command".
Some Conservative lawmakers oppose the change, which they said was being made without adequate consultation with Canadians. The former Conservative government suggested changes to the anthem's lyrics in 2010, but backed off after a public outcry.
Someone had to be scanning these lyrics for something to be offended by. And by someone, I mean Justin Trudeau and his inclusion team.
As a general rule, whenever something gets changed to be more inclusive... it sucks for everyone involved (School Forbids Father-Daughter Dance. Claims 'Not Inclusive' Enough). Sure, this is just a song we're talking about here. Aaand that's the point. It's just a song. There's nothing threatening about it. Unless you're a college student who happens to also be triggered by sombreros. In which case...
The Canadian government isn't simply altering national tradition in order to meet the demands of these turdbombs... They're spearheading the hyper-liberal movement themselves. Instead of focusing on creating solutions to actual problems, they're creating fake problems. Sound familiar? Andrew Jackson's portrait on the $20 American bill wasn't hurting anybody. That didn't stop our government from slapping Harriet Tubman's fat face on it in one fell swoop. #Progress
Does it really matter that one line of a song is being changed? Debatable. Still, there's a bigger, more important issue at hand here. It starts with a "g" and ends with "overnment overreach." Every time the left goes crying to the government to fix things unnecessarily, they give the government more control. That's a big no-no.
What exactly does more government control look like? Take a look...
