Never Again, Never Forget… Never Mind. Canadians and Forced Cowardice.
These last few weeks have been distressing for we Canadians to say the least.
Our country’s day of national mourning and ceremonial solemnity will be tainted by the fact that, only a few short days ago, our nation as a whole was attacked upon or own sacred ground.
Arguments are being posited by Canadians on both sides of the political spectrum debating whether the attack on Parliament Hill was an isolated incident. Was the offender a disgruntled criminal with no political affiliations or should he be considered a member of an international terrorist organization?
As stupidity and rhetoric seem to be the order of the day, the key point that the Left refuses to acknowledge is the fact that the perpetrator considered himself a member of ISIL. Had ISIL not promoted their agenda via propaganda in the weeks preceding the attacks, the incidents probably would never have occurred. And then, in the aftermath, ISIL excitedly accepted credit for the attacks and continued with their anti-Canadian rhetoric, obviously proud of their fallen comrade’s sacrifice.
We need to face facts, to quit debating and start acting. We need to begin behaving in ways worthy of the Canada our forefathers built and begin to take responsibility for what we have become as a nation. It’s time to start living up to the high standards of our founders and begin to return to the fundamental Canadian belief system honored and remembered on November 11th each year.
We need to think back to the Canada commemorated by the National War Memorial site that recently was so viciously attacked and desecrated.
And before anyone questions my patriotism, I feel I should first mention that my status as a ‘Canadian’ cannot be called into question. My ancestors and relatives have fought, bled and died in every conflict Canada has undertaken.
My family was one of the first to settle in New France; there is a lake in Quebec that bears my family name. We fought in the French and Indian Wars, the American Revolution and the War of 1812. I have pictures on my wall of great uncles who served putting down the Red River Rebellion. We were in uniform during the Fenian raids and served during the Boer War. My great uncle was Gas attacked during the First World War, my grandfather and uncle served both in the RCA and the RCAF in both theatres during The Second World War and another of my uncles served in Korea. Most recently an aunt of mine served in Afghanistan.
No one can challenge my family’s dedication, commitment and loyalty to our nation. I would even be so bold as to say that many “Canadians” shouldn’t even qualify to question my integrity as a true Canadian.
That is why it pains me deeply to say this: we have acted like cowards.
Not our true people (those with common sense anyway), by no means our men and women in uniform, and not even all of our politicians. But through our policy, our blindness towards our current situation and our gutlessness, we as a people have come across as weak and insipid. In the eyes of our enemy and in the estimation of our global peers we look to be quivering little lambs, waiting to be slaughtered in blissful ignorance.
The enemy is here and now and they are beginning to realize that they can attack us with impunity within our own nation with little to no consequence.
After the attack on parliament we saw Trudeau give us a shining example of this gutlessness. His speech on Oct 22nd was fine at face value, I suppose. But with his slick ‘Trudeau-ian’ doublespeak, one sentence stood apart in his oration, making clear the real intent of his words. It was a sentence that the CBC highlighted at the bottom of the screen for all to see over and over again throughout the day, and it made me sick to my stomach.
“Canada is not Innocent…”
His rhetoric, like a ‘Tabula Rasa’, was carefully chosen so that viewers could individually interpret them however they chose, each according to his own leanings.
Anyone with a patriotic bent is intended to interpret the statement as: we as a nation are ‘not naive’ and acknowledge that this was a definite possibility in this day and age.
However, to see that clip played repeatedly on the CBC, if one was to be even remotely sympathetic to the terrorist cause, one can see how easily the public could interpret it as though Trudeau was implying the very opposite: that we had somehow ‘gotten ourselves’ into this mess, that Canada was wholly deserving of it all. Way to try and maintain both sides of the vote ‘Trudy’. 
I couldn’t help but laugh. Genius. And definitely appealing to those Liberally educated but common sense stupid folk who watch the CBC.
Furthermore, on the left, Mulcair immediately went public in saying that he was wholeheartedly against increasing security, that “fear mongering” would do no good, and that he was grateful for Vicker’s heroic actions. This before immediately calling an inquiry into the RCMP Security Force’s incompetence and railing at them for not investigating some young men he saw outside of his house that night (presumably while he, clad in a helmet & Kevlar vest, screamed at his family to ‘get down!!’ while peering through a small finger split in his window blinds from his darkened living room).
Mulcair and members of his cabinet even went so far as to demand extra security from the RCMP, threatening that if they did not receive it, they would take matters of security into their ‘own hands’. Then, our wonderful NDP leader, who constantly rails for gun-control and promises his supporters a ressurrection of the long defunct gun registry, hypocritically ‘beefed up’ his own home security. Undoubtedly he proceeded to add a plethora of wonderful new ‘restricted’ and ‘prohibited’ weapons to his existing arsenal. It would seem personal protection is fine and dandy for his own family, but ought to be out of reach for the common Canadian Citizen. 
As the week continued, we saw Stephen Harper cancel his meeting with the Nobel Prize winning, female education activist (and all around Taliban-surviving anti-fanatical Islamic opponent) Malala Yousafzai, a small victory for misogynist terrorists all over the world, before announcing that “Canada will not be intimidated!”. This was right before he showed the entire world that Canada, very easily in fact, would indeed be intimidated.
Ceremonial guards were dismissed, soldiers were told not to wear their uniforms in public and the RCMP (rather insultingly) refused to even review Canadian Armed forces Officers’ applications to carry sidearms. Our police walk around every day with pistols and assault rifles they barely know how to use, but the thought of a few military personnel who have trained their entire careers to use such weapons in the most extreme of scenarios are not allowed? One military member even went so far as to post the transcript of his conversation with an RCMP Chief Firearms Officer online. The request was insultingly called ‘ridiculous’ and ‘not worthy of their time’. I do not know if those allegations are true, but to be honest, I would not be surprised. The full transcript can be viewed in full on the NFA’s Facebook page.
Now we’re hearing that certain Canadian Forces and Police Officers are being ordered not to wear their dress uniforms on Remembrance Day so as to not ‘provoke’ attacks.
For shame, Canada, for shame. The act of showing our enemies, both at home and abroad, that our “Armed Forces” are not only “UN-armed” but also ‘hiding’ is almost too disgraceful for words.
This is not the Canada of my Grandfather.
And after all this, our National War Memorial has been decreed to be left ‘unguarded’, our Unknown Soldier to be abandoned to solitude. That was until a determined and stoic American Marine stepped up to task. Under threat of death, he pledged to honour our dead and to watch over our fallen hero. Again, Canadians cannot depend on Canadians to do the right thing anymore. We end up having to look to the unwavering honour of an American Marine while Canadian Forces Officers are forced under order to hide in plainclothes.
And what did this battle-hardened, Purple Heart bedecked Marine have to say after receiving death threats and phone calls from screaming Arabic extremists? “Take your best Shot…”, he said coldly.
God Bless you Major Sinke! As a Canadian, I appreciate every moment you stand guard for our country. But as a Canadian, I am forced to question the integrity of our commanders, who will not allow our willing and able men and women to do the same in his place out of ‘fear’. 
As the week progressed, we heard rumors of Harper having to ‘hide in a closet’ while Conservative Government members barricaded the door and prepared to use flag poles with sharp tips as weapons. Almost immediately, photoshopped pictures of a frightened looking Harper appeared all over the Liberal side of the internet. Intent on making Harper look like a coward, these bloggers all refused to acknowledge the fact that the Prime Minister was, in fact, ‘tossed’ in there by his bodyguard. The exact same thing that would have happened to Obama, Putin or any other world leader in his place.
Capitalizing fully on the terrible, unexpected incident, a plethora of Liberal online posters discussed how it was a “shame that the shooter had not killed Harper before being put down”, absolutely horrifying ignorant rhetoric at its worst. That being said, ‘the Right’ responded in kind with pictures and cartoons depicting the ‘truth’ that it was only a ‘good guy’ with a gun who could stop the ‘bad guy’ with a gun (referring to the heroic acts of Vickers).
And to top it all off, the CBC, during the live coverage of the event, felt the need to throw scary words around about ‘Canadian Commandos with AK-47s’. Pretty specific wording for something the reporter obviously knew nothing about. Canadian tactical police armed with MP5’s could be seen during the televised incident, a far cry from ‘commandos with cold war era Soviet weapons of war’. But hey, to a Liberal reporter all guns are ‘AK-47s’, aren’t they? Scary buzzwords and technical sounding hardware branding are a goldmine for ratings.
And while Canadians were focused on this mess, horrifying images of the Middle East were released by Al-Jazeera and other ISIL sympathetic news outlets glorifying the recent ‘improvements’ in their held territories. Factories that have been converted into slaughterhouses for Westerners, Christians, Jews and any non-Sunni Muslim that they can round up . Menus and prices for the crying, bleeding women and girls that are being sold for sex slaves while leering, smelly men around them, poke, prod, laugh and make jokes . Ah, the enchanting record of a disgusting new caliphate sworn to murder or rape every one of us one day, that is, every one of us who is not a Sunni.
ISIL is starting to murder people in holocaust proportions – vowing to spread into Europe – and they are indeed making progress. This problem is no longer a self-contained, Middle-Eastern issue only. The attacks on Canadian soil may seem minor, but are an indication of a growing threat, one that is already deeply embedded in our society. 
But Canadians, as a whole, don’t seem to care. They brush it aside, dismissing such occurrences as the murder at the National War Memorial as isolated incidents, saying that our own racism is to blame.
Liberals like Trudeau and Mulcair are self-professedly “disgusted” by the Conservative majority’s attempts to combat the problem. Trudeau quips about Harper trying to show off the ‘size of his F18s’ (which, sadly – all penis jokes aside- is by no means a boast grounded in fact). Our F18’s are 30 years old and laughable in comparison to the fleets of our allies (and enemy’s).
And Mulcair rails on an on about how ‘soup and blankets’ are the only things that the Middle East really needs from us in the form of ‘aid’. Perhaps instead of his home security being strengthened, we should just send homemade Tommy Soup and blankets. Maybe that’ll make the ‘bad men’ on his street at night ‘go away’ and his family will feel more secure knowing they have a bowl of warm soup and some ‘security’ blankets to keep them safe.
It seems to me that it really all boils down to the fact that, not only are the people being murdered and slaughtered currently thousands of miles away, but they’re also not white. Amid all the haranguing and harassment of the the leftist media towards Conservatives, claiming that they’re ‘racist’, in the end, the Conservatives are the only ones trying to help those brown colored people in far off lands being murdered, tortured and beheaded… or sold into pre-pubescent sex slavery, of course.
Maybe when ISIL starts to interfere with the production or importation of Justin’s favorite hair-gel we’ll start to see some sympathy and action on his part. For Mulcair, it may arise when the only individuals left in Canada with guns or any rights and freedoms are the terrorists themselves. But then he’ll only retaliate by trying to peacefully disarm them… with hugs, kisses, hot soup and comfy blankies.
Meanwhile, mosques in Canada are not only proud and boastful of their radical track record, but are continuing to pump out fanatical terrorists on our own soil. 
Maybe the aforementioned incidents aren’t so ‘tongue in cheek’ after all. Maybe it’s all a prelude.
So this Remembrance day, let us remember all of our fallen soldiers, keeping Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent in our hearts and minds also. These two soldiers are symbolic casualties in a raging war that Canadians refuse to acknowledge is actually taking place.
God bless Canada. And let us pray He saves us all, or at least blesses us with some common sense before it’s too late.
