People’s Party of Canada (PPC) candidate for Brampton-West, Rahul Samuel got on Twitter late Wednesday morning to share a message that has been “holding heavy in my heart,” he says in the video.
“I’ve been receiving a lot of negative messages, negative phone calls, negative text messages in for the past few weeks in my inbox. Messages such as ‘why am I standing with the People’s Party of Canada, when the People’s Party of Canada is a ‘far-right’ party and ‘they’re racist’ and me being an immigrant, why am I standing with the party?” Samuel said.
He then goes on to explain that the label “right-wing,” doesn’t mean racist.
“I’ve received a lot of these messages in a negative manner and I wanna touch base on those and answer those in the most elegant way that I can. My quick and short answer is no. People’s Party of Canada, Mr. Maxime Bernier — we are not racist. Just because they call it a ‘right wing’ party – why do we [the general public] define ‘right wing’ with racist?”
“Can white Canadians go there and be white Canadians and only speak English and build churches and set their own laws and try to make Canadian laws stick to the society over there without assimilating into that society? No, they cannot.”Rahul Samuel
“No – I have a question for all the listeners out there. Can Canada and can Canadians — can the white Canadians who only speak English go back to [the] Middle East or Asia … or the country where I came from — can white Canadians go there and be white Canadians and only speak English and build churches and set their own laws and try to make Canadian laws stick to the society over there without assimilating into that society? No, they cannot.”
“Will they be accepting of white Canadians just being white and only speaking English and sort of only following their own religion? Will those countries be accepting of white Canadians doing that — no they will not. Yet Canadians are still accepting of us being however we want to be,” said Samuel.
He believes regardless of the PPC’s policies they are not racist — they would be choosing the best of the best immigrants to benefit the economy he says.
“So no, People’s Party of Canada is not racist, they just put Canada first. Because we say ‘put a stop to mass immigration’ doesn’t mean we are saying we don’t like coloured people, we are saying we want people to come here with the right merit system, the right point system — to provide to the economy.”Rahul Samuel
He says by “putting Canada first,” they strive to not create a divide between people by the colour of their skin — but to treat all citizens as equals.
“Putting Canada first, let’s not put this divide between calling me brown or another person white — we are creating this racism. We are not racist, we put Canada first and Canadians first,” said Samuel.
