Elites Attack Scheer For Mentioning God In Speech Denouncing Racism

In seeking to demonize Conservatives, the elites endlessly shift the goalposts.

Andrew Scheer has never shown any indication of being prejudiced.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped the elites from relentlessly accusing him and other Canadian Conservatives of being ‘racist,’ all without any shred of evidence to back up those claims.

And as we’ve seen over and over again, even when Conservatives do exactly what the elites claim is necessary, the elites simply shift the goalposts and launch a new line of attack.

It’s never enough.

That can be seen in the response to Andrew Scheer’s recent speech, in which he expressed his support for legal immigration (while calling for tougher measures against illegal border crossings), and clearly denounced racism:

“We are all children of God and there is equal and infinite value in all of us.”

After making those remarks, Scheer started to get attacked including by Political Science Professor at the University of Waterloo:

Others joined in the attack on the comments:




Others pushed back on the elites attacking Scheer:

Scheer echoes message of those who fought against slavery

This criticism of Scheer from many elitist-minded people is unfounded.

First of all, Scheer isn’t telling anyone what to believe, he’s stating his belief.

And second, Scheer’s thinking echoes the message of those who fought against slavery and racism.

A key part of the message of anti-slavery campaigners like William Wilberforce was that every human being was created in the image of God, and thus enslaving people and calling whole groups of people ‘less than human’ or ‘less deserving of rights’ was blasphemous and an affront to God. That message was instrumental in ending slavery in much of the Western World, and formed the backbone of the creation of human rights law.

Here are some of Wilberforce’s quotes where he speaks of his campaign against the slave trade:

“God Almighty has set before me two great objects: the suppression of the slave trade and the reformation of manners…”

“When we think of eternity, and of the future consequences of all human conduct, what is there in this life that should make any man contradict the dictates of his conscience, the principles of justice, the laws of religion, and of God? Sir, the nature and all the circumstances of this trade are now laid open to us; we can no longer plead ignorance, we can not evade it; it is now an object placed before us, we can not pass it; we may spurn it, we may kick it out of our way, but we can not turn aside so as to avoid seeing it; for it is bro directly before our eyes that this House must decide, and must justify to all the world, and to their own consciences, the rectitude of the grounds and principles of their decision.”

So, Scheer is in good company in citing his personal belief in God as a strong denunciation of racism and prejudice, and he should be praised for his comments, not attacked for them.
