Dear @MaximeBernier, (THREAD)
2/ We see you using the term “globalist” to fearmonger. It is a constant feature of your @peoplespca’s messaging and content posted by your candidates and EDAs (@markfriesen08, @quickshotmedia, @JenniferMClarke, @PPCLSH,@PpcRDMV and more) #cdnpoli
3/ When you do this, you are saying that your target (whether it’s @JustinTrudeau, @cafreeland, or @AndrewScheer) is disloyal to their nation, in favour of some “world government” (usually the @UN) or secret evil entity. #cdnpoli
4/ The term “globalist” is an old one, and it’s steeped in anti-Semitism. Understand, @MaximeBernier, that after being exiled from their homeland, Jews were forced to live at the mercy of other states. They were forced from country to country through violence and hatred. #cdnpoli
5/ Never truly welcomed in any one state, their perceived disloyalty was an easy scapegoat for rulers looking for a distraction. Former KKK leader and white supremacist David Duke called Brexit a triumph over the “Jewish Globalist Agenda.” #cdnpoli
6/ This conspiracy theory about “globalists” somehow attacking developed countries by encouraging immigration or taking in refugees appear again and again in #PPC circles. The roots of anti-Semitism run deep, and its themes and tropes are baked into other prejudices. #cdnpoli
7/ These anti-Semitic conspiracy theories also draw on #islamophobia and #racism, of course. The “globalist agenda” angle, which originates in anti-Semitism is used to tie it all together. #cdnpoli
8/ Please listen, @MaximeBernier: when concerned citizens point out that you are reading from the same playbook as white supremacists, you need to reflect on what that says about you, and change course. Otherwise you are complicit in #antiSemitism. #cdnpoli
9/ You need to stop, you need to apologize, and you need to call out volunteers, candidates, and supporters who continue to use this term. Unless, that is, you want anti-Semites to follow you and Jews to fear you. If that’s what you want, that’s what you’re getting now. #cdnpoli
10/ It is our deeply held hope that you will realize the path you are on and renounce it. Sincerely, 🇨🇦 #cdnpoli
