Idle No More and the Ugly Canadians
One of the many things the Idle No More movement has done is force many Canadians to stare at the face of the real Canada.
And in the process take a good look at themselves.
But what I can't help but wonder is now that they have, do they like what they see?
Because I don't, I'm horrified.
For while the Idle No More movement has brought out the best in many Canadians, it has also brought out the worst in others. The ugly Canadians who emerged from their holes like cockroaches, to spew bigotry in every direction.
And those in the MSM who aided and abetted them, by going after a humble chief and her impoverished people like a pack of giddy hyenas, and were more outraged about a bit of red paint splashed on a statue of Sir John A. Macdonald.
More concerned about the Great White Daddy.
The problem in his day, Macdonald said, was that his government had been “overindulgent” with Indians.
“But what can we do? We cannot as Christians, and as men with hearts in our bosoms — allow the vagabond Indian to die before us. Some of these Indians — and it is a peculiarity of their nature — will hang around the station and will actually allow themselves to die, in the hope that just before the breath leaves their body they will receive some assistance from the public stores.”
Than they are about the plight of our First Nations.
And for that and other crimes against journalism and decency, they now owe us an apology.
The unabashed complicity of the mainstream media in carrying out this hatchet job for the Harper government and unleashing a torrent of racism should be the subject of professional examination and deep personal shame for those involved.
But don't hold your breath eh? For today they were carrying on as if nothing had happened. Tweeting happily about themselves, or other silly things.
And being unfollowed.
Or writing puff pieces about the hatemongering nerd Ezra Levant.
Can you believe that eh? Persecuting a humble native chief, but fluffing a bigot. Has the MSM lost its moral compass or what? What has Stephen Harper done to Canada?
And who are those ugly Canadians who would crawl through their own excrement and lead us to destruction?
Oh well, I think I better end on a happier note. And it's this one...
You know how I have been profoundly influenced by the ideals and the success of the Quebec student movement.
And how that red square is our symbol.
Well now we have another version to show our support for another great struggle...
From Quebec with love.
The media will be shamed.The bigots will be beaten. The Con regime will be destroyed.
Are you ready for another Great Day of Protest?
Rock this country to its rotten foundations.
Shine a light into the darkness...
