I don't think that "I got mine, fark them" is limited to any nationality.

BitwiseShift: Covered the second day of Sociology 101.


Second day hell, maybe if your professor is a lazy hippie who doesn't lecture on the first day.

Once you're in, make sure to shut the door behind you.

What, they couldn't come up with a better name?  At least here in the US we had the Know Nothings, probably one of the best "We're a bunch of ignorant, hateful, racist f***s" names for a movement ever.*

*To be fair originally it was a codeword of sorts, since the movement originated in the shadows and if anyone was asked about it they were supposed to reply with "I know nothing."

"I got mine, fark you" is ironic now?

Let's see how well their social programs and health care hold up under the strain of waves of low-income immigrants looking for entitlements.

These programs work in the Nordic countries because the vast majority are well educated and contribute back into the system. It will buckle now with more takers going into the system.

Simpsons did it!

Didn't Apu do basically the same thing with the bear patrol?

What the guy is saying is basically that if you leave the gates open too wide it makes it hard for people to get established leading to violence and other social problems and it is especially hard on people that don't have education or needed skills. The stereotype of immigrant doctors driving cabs isn't too far off the mark now imagine the kinds of problems when you have thousands and thousands of unskilled workers sitting around with nothing to do but get angry. We're seeing some of this in Canada too since most immigrants and refugees tend to end up in only a handful of urban areas (mostly Toronto) and you end up with the problem of trying to find jobs and services for people that aren't readily employable.

So, his position of "Perhaps we could limit immigration to what the labor market can more easily absorb, and avoid having crowds of unemployed disaffected people" is equal to hateful, racist, zenophobia?

Interdasting.

Or race, religion and ethnic group.  It's known as lack of empathy.

People who are already in the country are also deserving of empathy.

Let me guess, legal immigrants pissed at people that don't bother to go through the process?

So send them to places like Yellowknife and help them start out there. Every town need cab drivers, ethnic restaurants, language tutors, jewelry makers and dance troupes.

Gee, do I have to think of everything?


/ Not entirely serious.

So you're making excuses?

Just pointing out your hypocrisy

Well it's not like immigrants are a hive mind or anything. Dividing people into "native" and "ethnic" is kind of dumb.

TFA said that at dude in question joined the opposition in response of some Islamist bring put in a government position and it's very much a culture clash.
