The protesters were being brats and Canadians appeased them. Sorry, ingrates, but that’s not the deal in a free country. You can”t just call yourself a chief and say that every time you vandalize statues it’s a “religious ceremony.” You don”t get to tell people where they can and cannot walk and what flags they can carry, especially when that flag is a Canadian flag and you”re proudly waving your desecrated flag on Canada’s 150th birthday. The Micmacs didn”t have their land stolen by colonizers. They signed a treaty after kicking our asses. The religious-ceremony trope is a complete lie, but even if it were true, the Proud Boys did nothing wrong. They showed up to an event at a public park, asked some questions, and left. For this, they have been painted by the mainstream media as white supremacists and may lose their livelihoods. Even a sailor’s girlfriend is in trouble. She’s an officer who trains cadets and when she saw a picture of her boyfriend waving the flag on Canada Day she tweeted, “Proud of my boy.” I believe she was removed from the training camp she worked at, but I can”t verify this.
This is all because of rumors started by a couple of crabby babysitters who know nothing about Micmacs. The government officials were kowtowing to tweets from leftist extremists. I”m not sure what’s more embarrassing, that Canada’s leaders cower in fear of teenagers” tweets or that we thoughtlessly humiliate men who are willing to die for us. What kind of soldier or sailor WOULDN”T go to a rally next door that was devoted to attacking his country? What kind of serviceman wouldn”t at least question such an act? Probably the same kind of guy who crawls up the ranks in the Canadian military and shits on his own men at the first sign of trouble.
So, I have started a petition. Please go to SaveTheFive.com and sign it. I”m confident we can get between 10K and 20K signatures, and when we do, I will fly to Halifax and personally deliver it to Rear Admiral John Newton of the Royal Canadian Navy. Canada is an incredible country and the people who fight and die for it deserve a little respect.
