‘ASIMIL8’ licence plate is hurtful whether it is about Star Trek or humans, government emails say


Whether “assimilation” is by fictional aliens in the television series Star Trek or in real life against Indigenous people, the meaning is the same and should never have been approved for a personalized licence plate, a senior executive with Manitoba Public Insurance says in internal email.

This is just asinine and reminds me of some Eminem lyrics:

You find me offensive? Well I find you offensive for finding me offensive!

Canada has gone so far to appease everyone that they can’t appease anyone. People need to understand that just because they find something offensive, it is not always necessary to push their worldview onto others. Homogeneity is a good thing for milk; not people.
