Obama victory: Romney’s supporters threaten to move to Canada

51

Ahead of the swearing-in of re-elected President Barack Obama in January, supporters of defeated Mitt Romney have threatened to pack up and move to Canada. According to agency report, this happens every four years, usually right around September. Calls come in from all over the United States from people threatening to flee their homeland if a candidate they despise wins the Oval Office.

“That’s the amazing thing, when they speak on the phone. They’re adamant. They feel very, very strong about it,” said David Cohen, a Montreal-based immigration lawyer. “This government doesn’t speak for me’ is the language that we often hear.” As a partner at the Campbell Cohen firm, which specializes in immigration to Canada, Cohen said he has received these calls for decades.

It sometimes makes him “feel like a therapist because they vent for a while, get this cathartic release.” But when it comes down to it, Americans don’t move to Canada unless it’s for a relationship or new job essentially, love and money. Cohen said he can remember only three of four cases in more than 30 years that involved someone actually making good on their threat to move to Canada to escape an American president.

This election cycle, he said, most of the calls “tended to be conservative or Romney supporters. There were not as many from the other side, so maybe they had kind of a premonition.” It’s all part of the election season’s bluster cycle, and while partisan hot air is typical this time of year, this year’s squabbling has been “palpably ugly,” even if most of it is just talk, said Jerrold Post, director of George Washington University’s political psychology program and author of “Political Paranoia: The Psychopolitics of Hatred.”

“That’s always been the case: more extreme talk than actions,” he said. “You can entertain any idea you want to, but there’s a difference between having an idea and acting on an idea.” “But,” Post added, “throw enough ugly ideas into a pot and something is going to boil over.” Sure, Facebook and Twitter were rife with threats to leave the country if Barack Obama or Mitt Romney won, but we’ve also seen the more serious headlines.

Bryan Fischer of the evangelical group the American Family Association reportedly said last week, “I think there will be blood” if Obama wins. In north Georgia, the president of the Cottages of Woodstock homeowners’ association, a residential community for the elderly, said he would shut the complex’s gates for fear of “negative repercussions (that) may occur because of the results of the election,” The New York Times reported.

In August, Lubbock County, Texas, Judge Tom Head warned that the country could descend into civil war if Obama was re-elected and, as the county’s emergency management coordinator, he considered whether he’d have to “call out the militia” if Obama ordered U.N. troops to quell the uprising. More recently, after Tuesday’s election results came in, real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump called for “revolution!” and urged his 1.8 million Twitter followers to “march on Washington and stop this travesty.”

He further called on them to “fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice,” while proclaiming the country was now in “serious and unprecedented trouble…like never before.” Trump has since deleted the revolution missive. Post noted that Trump was at the forefront of the so-called “birther movement,” which falsely claims Obama wasn’t born in the United States, so he wasn’t surprised to see Trump sound off, but “the intensity of that was rather shocking.”

    UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS A GREAT COUNTRY AND I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT THE RANTINGS OF FEW NARROW MINDED INDIVIDUALS CAN NEVER CHANGE THE DESTINY OF THAT GOD OWNED COUNTRY. THANK GOD AMERICA IS NOT NIGERIA WHERE ETHNICITY AND TRIBALISM ARE PART OF THE FACTORS FOR ELECTORAL VICTORY

  10. a leader has been transparently chosen. there is noting anybody can do about it. those who cannot face it should please relocate to Nigeria. i am sure “they” would like it better here under GEJ.

  11. The Republicans took Americans for granted. They tried everything possible to frustrate Obama once they took over the control of congress in the mid term elections. God knows that their agitation is not in the interest of the people and so the disgraceful defeat even when their doctored opinion polls told us they were running neck to neck and so too close to call. The Donald Trump of this world should know that the Lord’s will must prevail at all times. God bless America and double blessing for Nigeria.

    • For your information, those white oppressors are immigrants just like the Israelis too. The real owners of America are the Red Indians. They were there before the White explorers came and claimed to have found a new world. The sweat of the blacks was used to build America.

  12. that is the price to pay for allowing imigrants to pass the indigens in population.if we look at the groups that voted for obama it is-the (laitnos,jamicans,blacks,indians,chineses,africans) with young white americans from 18-35yrs,that followed their friends to vote.the matured and real whites,the rich,britain,even isreal all did not support him.although as a black and nigerian,i support obama,but nigeria will learn a good leadon from that.more than 50% of northern states population came in through th porouse boder,as we are fighting terrorism bcous their countrys are poor and disterbilize,they will do any thing posible to make nigeria worse than their country.

  14. Carl or whatever u are called, pls go to Canada and never u come back again to America, u fool. U dont want Obama in White House but God want him there.

  15. well..no amount of education or civilisation would elevate these die-hard British imigrants to the US from the human tendencies.. which are bigotary, hate ,fear of the unknown..,it is understandable and for that i forgive them. If there is anything one has leant in this election, is the fact that mankind is the same regardless of his status(education,color,race etc.) that pre/post election misbehaviors are not peculiar with Nigeria. Barack Obama and by extension the face of black triumph in America today is nolonger a one term president..the rest is history, i am only humbled.

  16. sir nwendu ezike base in china on

    wel some pples have said that american has spoken .spoken of what? i want to let many of u to know that barrack obama is antichrist which will change this world.and put it upside down.i know some pples will say that am talking rubbish,but let us wait and see

  17. Racist silly comment.. Good
    American people have spoken by
    their votes, and the world has heard
    them, then who are you?

  18. Mr china or whatever u cal urself, is it bcos u were denied visa to America and you are now in china town in Lagos that u talk with saliva in ur on guarded mouth…….idiot

  19. Obama victory: Romney’s supporters threaten to move to Canada
    Why don’t they commit suicide instead of moving to Canada and as a matter of fact I have been expecting people like Sean of Fox News and others like him in that broadcast outfit to have committed suicide about four years ago the way they carried on then and as they still do today. No news media worth its salt should be that biased and I just think they need to move to Canada to broadcast as well but a doubt it very much if Canada will allow such shameless news media to operate on their shore.
    Every time I heard Mitt Romney said “we will claim back the White House” I interpreted that to be that the White House is meant for White presidents only to occupy. As a matter of fact many of them cannot bear mere thought of a Black person being the president and occupying the White House. You can link that to some groups in Nigeria who believe the presidency is theirs, the reason they promise to make the country ungovernable if they were not declared president, a promise they are keeping today. There is of course another group that came to life through Chinua Achebe and for this group, Nigeria has problems today because they, the superior tribes like Hitler’s Nazi Germany are not ruling Nigeria as president but let’s still continue with those Americans’ whites who now want to Andrew their country because a Black man is occupying the White House. One interview that came to my mind was when a journalist asked a White young man why he would not vote for Obama. His answer was that he did not just want him there. Though he did not say it, it could be interpreted to be that it was because he was not a White man. Now read this:
    “Ahead of the swearing-in of re-elected President Barack Obama in January, supporters of defeated Mitt Romney have threatened to pack up and move to Canada” according to David Cohen, a Montreal-based immigration lawyer and my comment is that they should just go and jump into the ocean.
    According to agency report, this happens every four years, usually right around September. Calls come in from all over the United States from people threatening to flee their homeland if a candidate they despise wins the Oval Office. Facebook and Twitter were rife with threats to leave the country if Barack won.
    Shamefully, Bryan Fischer of the evangelical group the American Family Association reportedly said last week, “I think there will be blood” if Obama wins, shameful because he was supposed to be a Christian and in north Georgia, the president of the Cottages of Woodstock homeowners’ association, a residential community for the elderly, said he would shut the complex’s gates for fear of “negative repercussions (that) may occur because of the results of the election,” The New York Times reported.
    And, In August, Lubbock County, Texas, Judge Tom Head warned that the country could descend into civil war if Obama was re-elected and, as the county’s emergency management coordinator, he considered whether he’d have to “call out the militia” if Obama ordered U.N. troops to quell the uprising. More recently, after Tuesday’s election results came in, real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump called for “revolution” and urged his 1.8 million Twitter followers to “march on Washington and stop this travesty.” He further called on them to “fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice,” while proclaiming the country was now in “serious and unprecedented trouble…like never before.” So what is stopping Lubbock and Donald from doing that? Of course while like Nigerian politicians who would send their children, wives and concubines abroad for safety while hiding under their beds, will leave it to some jobless youths and some Almejeris shouting “Sai Buhari” cutting down members of the NYSC. Likewise, Lubbock won’t lead the militias and Donald will leave it to his 1.8 millions Twitter followers to lead the “revolution” while he hides away within his wife’s pyjamas
    Obviously some American Whites cannot bear to see a Black man occupy “their White House” just like some Nigerian politician see the country as their own preserve to rule. What they have forgotten is that America is such a multicultural society and the demography has so changed that no White man or woman who banks on main credential of being White can longer smell the White House just as any Nigeria who depends solely on where he or she comes from will never go near Aso Rock much more occupy it. Times have changed and changed indeed.

    Isn’t this the same article I read on yahoo a couple of days ago…? Who is guilty of copyright here…..? or is it plagiarism….I think our journalist are becoming lazier and lazier, and I cant read anything here indicating that the news was culled from anywhere, it was reported as if the report was conducted by The Punch

  21. THE TRUTH IS THAT BARACK OBAMA USED THE POWER OF INCUMBENCY TO RIG THE ELECTION. INDICIES B/F THE ELECTION POINTED THAT OBAMA CANNOT WIN THE ELECTION. SO, OBAMA WENT ON RAMPAGE AND RIG ALMOST ALL THE ELECTION IN SWING STATES. THE ELECTION RESULTS WERE ACTUALLY SHAM AND TRAVESTY.

    • can you prove what you just said? obviously, you are a loser by mere counting the comments here. you and rom and all the racists have lost in america and in the world and in this media and will continue to lose. better join the winning team now. hahaha.

  22. The dream of Martin Luther King will never die. All the racist should either move to Canada or remain calm and support the president.
