Furious Canadians Threaten US Boycott...Except Coke, iPhones, Nikes, Starbucks...

Canadian publications and citizens groups are calling for a boycott of US goods in response to President Trump and members of his administration's attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

But as Reuters reports, a consumer boycott of the US is much easier said than done. Still, the boycott push has gained momentum since Canada's Parliament on Monday condemned Trump for his treatment of Trudeau. Trudeau himself has "kept a low profile" since the end of the G-7 summit, which Trudeau hosted in Quebec over the weekend. Publications like the Toronto Star have suggested a campaign of "empty hotel rooms and campsites."

All kinds of targets have been suggested in opinion columns and postings on social media, from companies that sell goods associated with Trump or his family to a broader ban on U.S. vacations. The suggestions come not only in response to the attacks on Trudeau by Trump and his aides, but to the threat of a trade war that could hurt Canada’s economy and sideswipe jobs.

"So, if this president insists on punching you in the nose and eating your lunch, why would you continue to pretend he’s still a great neighbor and go over to his place to spend your time and money?" implored an opinion piece in the Toronto Star.

As Reuters reminds us, Canada is the biggest market for US goods. The country imports a total of $90 billion during the first four months of this year alone. For 35 US states, Canada is the top export market. As a whole, Canada is the destination for 18.3% of US exports - putting it ahead of China and Mexico.

Canada

When it comes to tourism, Canadians also comprise a significant proportion of visitors to the US. Hundreds of thousands of Canadian retirees winter in the sun belt - a region that stretches across the southeastern and southwestern US. But as much as Canadians love to boast about their beef, beer and maple syrup, it's difficult to imagine a countrywide boycott of Pepi, Coca-Cola and other iconic US brands (how about the iPhone? Nike sneakers? Or Starbucks?) ever getting off the ground. Why? Because, at the end of the day, Canadians love US brands.

"To suggest Canadians are going to stop drinking Coke and Pepsi is a bit of a stretch, given we are so enmeshed in U.S. consumer culture. A bottom line impact is not likely to occur," said pollster Nik Nanos.

"That said, this is going to be a massive headache for U.S. companies doing business in Canada, both from a public relations and consumer relations perspective."

While Trump has largely been the target of Canadians' ire, Trump advisor Peter Navarro on Tuesday apologized for unleashing "verbal hell" on Trudeau during a Fox News interview.

"I own that," Navarro said during an appearance at The Wall Street Journal's CFO conference.

They need instead to boycott the jew supremacists that have wholly subjugated them to jew tyrany:

Earlier this week, the Anti-Defamation League – one of the most subversive, anti-American organizations operating with impunity on American soil – released an official memo praising both the House and Senate for introducing the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act, a piece of legislation “which provides important guidance for the Department of Education and the Department of Justice for federal anti-discrimination investigations involving anti-Semitism, including on college campuses,” according to the press release.

It could not be more obvious that the United States federal government exists to serve the Jews and Israel, yet openly recognizing and stating this obvious fact is verboten in modern society.

The Canadians should demand that Trudeau tear up NAFTA in protest. That would be throwing Brer Rabbit Trump in the Briar Patch.

OK seriously now Canadians take a few deep breaths and calm down. I am going to explain this to you:

1. If you think Trump is a racist, misogamist, oafish bully full of hatred elected by neo-nazi racist white people in hillbilly America. You are wrong, you have been brainwashed by CBC, most of American Media and Hollywood and print media and magazines. He is actually a great man and a great, up there with the greatest ever, Presidents of the United States of America. polls show 47% of Americans now approve of him and that is better than Regan or Obama at this point in their Presidencies.

If you do not believe that then I suggest you just put that aside at this point and just assume it is true for the sake of my argument.

2. Trump is against globalism and so NAFTA in its current form will have to go. It is a global governance model treaty. Canada will have to accept that fact. Without the USA signed on to globalism there is no world Government army that can enforce global governance. Canada's foreign Minster likes to talk about "democracy". Global governance is not a democracy and nobody ever voted for it. It is a global bureaucrats wet dream. So she is being disingenuous.

3. The steel and aluminum tariff. Trump promised to rebuild America with American steel and aluminum. Unlike any politicians you have ever seen, Trumps keeps his promises. So live with it. Keep your supply managed cows, he is just pushing your buttons on that. If you want a line in the sand you can stand firm to, do it there, and you can win on something dear to Canadians. Don't fight him on steel and Aluminum because he isn't going to waiver there.

4. The harsh "special place in hell" comments. I want you to imagine Trump as a genius world leader surrounded by brilliant advisers and take the exact words in context that they are being said as he is about to meet Kim Jong Un for the first time to see if he can deal with him. Now perhaps instead of being affronted by insult you can feel proud that Justine Trudeau took a bullet for the team in the name of world peace. (Don't get cocky though as Justin did deserve a slap.)

Here is the quote:

WH trade advisor Peter Navarro. to Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, June 10, 2018
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0Q9D4YdwQs&t=174s

“Chris, there is a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump, and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door, and that’s what bad faith Justin Trudeau did with that stunt press conference. That’s what weak dishonest Justin Trudeau did, and that comes right from Air Force One. And, I'll tell you this, to my friends in Canada, that was one of the worst political miscalculations of a Canadian leaders in modern Canadian history. All Justine Trudeau had to do was take the win. President Trump did the courtesy to Justine Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit, he had other things, bigger things on his plate, in Singapore, where you are now Chris. He did him a favour, and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique. And what did Trudeau did, do? Soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace, Trudeau stuck our President in the back. That will not stand. And, as far as this retaliation goes, uh, the American Press needs to do a much better job, of what the Canadians are getting ready to do, because it’s nothing short of an attack on our political system, and it’s nothing short of Canada trying to raise it’s high protectionist barriers even higher on things like maple syrup and other goods.”

5. You have to deal with Trump. He is not going anywhere. You won't get anywhere if you think he is being impeached tomorrow and only meet with the coup plotters and Trump haters and old Obama people.

Israel is more like the American Empire's tethered goat in the Middle East than anything else. They'd not last the year without the explicit American military's conventional and nuclear umbrella. The Empire uses Israel to justify raining down hate and discontent on disobedient Middle Eastern states. Those Middle Eastern States just can't resist the temptation to get in there to try and fuck her.  They are an expensive tethered goat, too!

The American empire has been effectively in the jew supremacists hands since December 23, 1913

The jew supremacists successfully put a stake through the Republics heart on that fateful day.

Fly a 25 star flag or nothing, Andrew the jew supremacist knock-out king served under that flag.

Trump said he highly admired Andrew, that lasted about 24 hours- due to the jewish onslaught he experienced.

He quickly came to heel !

I dunno why you'e getting so many downsides for speaking truth on the fake semite cowards.  Well I have my ideas.  I'm pretty sure the pedofaggot trash that inhabits the ADL has their paid fake semite trollfarm cowards working overtime.  Don' let the fake semite cowards convince you they are anything but cowards.  They have contributed absolutely nothing to the western world.  ALL they ever did was import their sheer hatred for life and civilized society is more than ready to take them out.  The khazarian dogs are getting super triggered their childish cries of antisemite no longer work because the world knows they are impostors.  This faggots should consider himself lucky he has the anonymity of the internet to protect him because every khazarian fake semite dog I have to endure crying antisemite ends up missing teeth.

"The problem is "Canadians" are all dindus nuffins, pakis, gypsies, or cro-magnons."

True in the major cities. However there is a lot of 99% white "flyover Canada". CBC TV made a show years back called "Little Mosque on the Prairie." Obvious in hindsight to prepare Canadians to accept the Muslim takeover. However it never reached the rural penetration they were aiming for.

To be fair this is complicated.  For example, if there were purely free trade with no tariffs, subsidies, or protectionism, there would still be one country that is selling more to the other.  BTW this was Trump's suggestion, which everyone backed away from.

 

Because import tariffs are so complicated, the way that I know it's rigged against the US is because so many outsiders cried like babies.

 

The other thing that isn't published in the MSM is that Trump gave these countries a lot of time to negotiate it out but they all refused.

Canada, like virtually every other country in the world, protects its dairy farmers.  The 250% tariff kicks in once the quote has been exceeded (and US has quotes on dairy imports as well), to effectively prevent imports beyond the quotas.  The US quota for importation to Canada is actually require generous.

The following Brookings article raises a lot of points.  https://www.brookings.edu/blog/up-front/2018/06/13/a-trumped-up-charge-…

So while, yes, Canada does (at some point) impose a 250% tariff, like usual, Trump is speaking out of context bullshit.  Face it, the Orangutan is even more of a liar, and clearly far stupider, than Obongo.  Sure, I enjoyed Trump knocking down that pitiful Trudeau, and the Libtard media again proving resoundingly their loyalty is to Globalists like Trudeau over their own President, but politics is about diplomacy.  If anything Trump proves anybody could run the US and get some things done, having that bully pulpit is effective even for the worst of the worst.

And I don't hear Trump calling for repealing farmer subsidies, which in his Globalist "free trade world", should be eliminated as well.  Or the entire set of import quotas to the US, known as the Harmonized Tariff Schedule.  Nope, that would hit his support base in the "blue collar" states really hard.  And at the end of the day, Trump is nothing even remotely resembling a man of principle.

I don't think it falls under the 2nd Amendment but couldn't we ban golf club use by Canadians, especially in FL and AZ based up it being a weapon of sorts in the hands of people sworn against the US.  I guess they might reciprocate by banning Americans from using fishing poles up there in their pristine waters.

Just revoke all the work visas for all those Canadians in the US and watch what happens. There are at least 5 million if not more of them working in the US."

---------------------

Oh for fuck sake man, grab a brain.  Same goes for all the sheep who fell for your bullshit.

"Canadians working in U.S. under NAFTA exemption worry about future under Trump:

An estimated 30,000 to 40,000 Canadians work in the U.S. under a treaty-related exemption"

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/canadians-us-nafta-visas-1.3910934

For a period of exactly one year my daughter was one of those people working in the USA.  Actually they flew her down there every Monday morning and flew her back every Thursday night.  You know why?  Because one of the states needed a consulting expert who knew how to convert the medical records systems for 40 hospitals.  The consulting firm she works for has American branches and Canadian branches.  The American side did not have anybody available who had the expertise.  So they asked the Canadian side if they had an expert who could guide that transition of health informatics for all 40 hospitals.  The Canadian side had 5 such people, one of whom had already done that exact work that the state needed done.  And that was my daughter.

So they sent her down there and she got the job done in one year.  That's the kind of Canadians that work in the USA.  Highly educated people of character who offer something of gigantic value to the US economy.  So if you think it's a great fucking idea to send all of them back to Canada, so be it.  The skin is off your hide... not ours.  And for future reference, kindly stop confusing Canadians with those lovely brown skinned people who speak Spanish.  There might be a few million of them down there.  And by the way... the Canadians are there legally you asshole.  The brown ones... not so much.
