OK, this is political, but its hockey, too.
What bothers me is all the anti-American statements on there.
First, before I say anything more, I'm liberal, left wing and not the flag waving type at all, so I'm not defending America right or wrong.
But what is this with all the anti-American stuff that I see from the Quebecois? I don't see it from other Canadians.
The outrage and hate I see from the Quebecois is just over the top, what I might expect from some Vietcong who's mother had her leg blown off or something.
Lots of countries have beefs with the US, lots and lots. But Canada, and particularly Quebec?? What the hell, Canada actually benefits from US foreign policy more than most.
What I get from the Quebecois is "you just don't understand what its like suffering from US policy." Like what? And they have no answer. And these are hockey playing idiots who know zero about politics.
I honestly think that the Quebecois hate the US so much just because it makes them feel different and push an agenda of separating from the rest of Canada - as if the rest of Canada benefits from the US and Quebec suffers.
It ties right in with the arrogance I see from the Quebecois playing hockey down here in MA and play in the pickup games - not good players, probably the only few in Quebec that didn't skate early in life - you can just tell when someone starts skating later in life. But then they have this attitude like they're good because being born in Quebec gives them some kind of a special birth right or something.
