- According to Glenn Grothman, the disparities in Canada are dependent on language.
- Grothman spoke out against a major budget bill that Democrats are attempting to get through Congress.
How about this for a powerful piece of political oratory given in the United States House of Representatives? A Wisconsin Republican claimed that Canada and many other countries are less successful than the United States and explained why they are “failing countries.”
Rep. Glenn Grothman claims it is due to cultural differences. He claims that in Canada’s situation, the distinctions are based on language. And he grouped it with a lengthy list of countries he labelled as failures.
He began his Nov. 16 speech, “I never felt Canada was nearly as successful as America.” “That’s because their elections put French speakers against English speakers to some extent.”
He said, “You look at elections in the Middle East, and it’s the Sunnis against the Shiites.” He went on to add that this is true in many other locations, including Africa’s 54 countries: “You look at elections in the Middle East, and it’s the Sunnis against the Shiites.” So when it comes to elections in Africa, it’s one tribe vs another.”
In other words, when people in these countries go to the polls, they “don’t say what the proper amount of money to spend on national defence is, what is our road policy, what is the appropriate criminal justice policy, or the length of jail sentences,” he explained.
“No, in these failing countries, elections are a struggle pitting one ethnic group against another.”
What is the situation?
Grothman spoke out against a major budget bill that Democrats are attempting to get through Congress, claiming that it includes spending initiatives directed at minorities.
He went on to say that it’s all part of a long-term Marxist plan to take over America by pitting racial groupings against one another.
Grothman, a former state lawmaker who was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives four times, is one of the more extreme members of the Republican party.
What comes next?
The bill is expected to pass the House of Representatives within the next few days.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other members of the Canadian government are unhappy with one of the bill’s clauses affecting electric vehicle production. However, they are hopeful that it will be changed before the Senate passes it.
Grothman voted against investigating the incident at the United States Capitol on Jan. 6, when his workplace was stormed by a mob attempting to disturb the orderly transfer of power following an election.
