America does not have a monopoly on bootstraps assholes.
It’s all, “No one is forcing them to live there! They should move! But they don’t want to, because then they would have to work!” And, “My ancestors came to Canada with nothing blah blah blah.”
It makes me sick.
Like, even if the people making these comments weren’t totally vicious, the lack of basic reasoning is astounding. These people can’t afford running water. How are they going to be able to move from Northern Ontario to these cities that are supposedly overflowing with jobs and housing? How are they going to be employable when there isn’t even an elementary school in their community? How many racist asshats like these commenters would deny them employment even if they managed to overcome those obstacles?
People are terrible.
