The melodrama acted out by some Indian people involved in Idle No More is repulsive. Chief Spence plans to continue her “hunger strike”. Let’s hope she goes all year, inventing new demands as each one is met.
One notable mistaken exaggerator claims Harper is involved in “genocide”. Yeah genocide. Think about the anti-Harper media for a second and ask yourself if Harper could get away with even saying a word that rhymes with genocide?
The people on the tantrum side of this issue are doing something much worse than making a poor hyperbole with their racial mass blood libel. They are devaluing the horrors against the victims of real genocide. Worse, by ‘crying wolf’ it makes it easier for their Iranian allies to commit an actual genocide.
Conversely, it’s heartening to see the humility and graciousness shown by this responsible government. All of this is in face of threats and provocations. We sent them to Ottawa to do the hard things and its awe inspiring to see it done so well.
Chief Atleo also deserves our thanks. It’s a relief to see that Chief Spence and other crazies don’t represent the majority of kind and decent aboriginals.
Many 2nd class Canadians are getting annoyed with the silliness of Idle No More threats however. Either they take us for fools or they are fools (probably some combination of both). They must realize that there are real limits to what the taxpayer will put up with. Neither the Canadian economy nor Canadian sovereignty is up for negotiation.
We have to make sure that last resorts are kept to the very last. There is no need or desire for the rights of the State to be enacted. We have to be very careful that does not come to pass. There are enemies of our Confederation outside and inside that wish exactly that on us. So mind your rhetoric please.
There is no doubt that millions of Canadians would rise in defence of Canada at a word from the Prime Minister. Millions of Canadians would have nothing better to do if some of these threats actually came to pass. We must also recognize that this is the worst case scenario. It’s a disaster that should be avoided at all but the cost of our prosperity and sovereignty.
Again I applaud the Harper Government for its calm and rational approach to this matter. They should be commended for their responsible commitment to the wellbeing of all Canadians of every background and ethnicity. Thank you for your skill and competence.
