No wonder the authorities that we sometime so stupidly rely on to protect our land and stand on guard for our country act the way they do: they don’t actually “get it”. Apparently there’s a whole swad of people who have their heads well up their backsides. I did not know the extent of the problem until September 11 2001 but I’m learning more and more every day.
For example, the state-run CBC, which calls the war on terror the ”so-called war on terror”, is calling the Indian’s national day of protest (which based on history portends violent action and very possibly death, and in which some in their community have threatened illegal blockades and “complete shut-downs” of vast portions of our national economy and our mobility just in time for our national holiday)… a “rally”.
A rally. Like a pep rally. How cute.
This is in reference to the state-run Via Rail’s announcement I covered earlier in this blog entry: “State-run Via Rail to suspend service tomorrow due to Indian blockades threat”.
You’ll see that through the CBC’s story they also seem utterly incredulous that Via Rail or anyone, by implication, could be taking such overtly precautious action—action designed to protect lives of innocent Canadians. Because after all, as they explain right in the opening paragraphs, an Indian chief gave assurances that there will only be “positive action” in the
blockades and possible deadly violent protest
No Toronto-Montreal, Toronto-Ottawa services on Friday, due to National Day of Action
Last Updated: Thursday, June 28, 2007 | 4:21 PM ET
Via Rail has cancelled all Friday train services between Toronto and Montreal and between Toronto and Ottawa — even as the head of the Assembly of First Nations promised only “positive action” that day during a countrywide aboriginal rally.
They later repeat the line in a mis-typed paragraph which actually makes no sense despite this being on the multi-gazillion-dollar CBC.ca web site which one presumes has editors.
He repeatedly stressed that the planned rally stretching from coast to coast was meant to about educating the public and drawing attention to aboriginal issues — not illegal roadblocks.
And don’t worry, Liberal Frenchman Stephane (the “Green Guru”) Dion, and General Jack Layton, the leader of the you’ve got to be kidding party, will be taking their usual leftist places in protest, marching against the government in a “rally” tomorrow too. That’s to show solidarity. With not the government.
…a number of representatives of the House of Commons are expected to appear at a rally and march in Ottawa on Friday, including Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion and NDP Leader Jack Layton.
Well of course they’ll be there. Protesting against our government. It’s for the kids. Or the environment. Or whatever.
That’s in spite of their very own asinine liberal-left ideologies which are directly responsible for taking us to the place we’re at, today. The media sees NO irony in this hideous stunt and will NOT question it.
