Give it up, already...

What do you call a person that protests Canadian or American political policies? Anti-Canadian? Anti-American? Anti-Caucasian?

No, because protesting a policy is simply protesting a policy, whatever the form it might take. Whether it is burning a flag, writing a political cartoon, or my mode of choice - whining on the internet.

Can we finally therefore, once and for all stop calling protests against Israeli policy anti-Semitism?

Can we finally therefore, once and for all stop calling protests against Conservative policy pro-American?

Uh, I think that it's Conservative policy that gets labelled pro-American.

Protests against Conservative policy are usually labelled anti-American.

Easy mistake to make, you know....

Ha!

Wilson - point taken, however it is a sad fact that Canadians have for some time defined themselves by using the US as a mirror. I would that we could start referring to Bush policies as "anti-Canadian"!
