"Where Is The Outrage?" ™

The Evolutionary History of a Meme:

An American comic slated to play in Edmonton has been dumped after slagging Canadian soldiers on a Fox News talk show. He's one of these bastards.

Says Olivia Chow of the federal New Democratic Party: "Canadians are able to make their own judgement on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and freedom of speech is critical in a democratic country." Actually, that's what Chow said in support of fascist gangster George Galloway last week, alleging a government conspiracy to keep opposing "views" about Afghanistan out of Canada, and citing the October, 2007 barring of "US peacemakers" Medea Benjamin and Ann Wright of CodePink.

Back then, Benjamin said: "It's outrageous that Canada is turning away peacemakers protesting a criminal, illegal war that does not have the support of either U.S. or Canadian citizens." Actually, Benjamin and Wright were turned away because their rap sheets showed nine convictions between the two of them.

Origins of the sinister federal mind-control plot: "This was a bit of a test, to see what happens when they arrest someone who isn't agreeing with their current foreign policy." That was the American blackshirt Alison Bodine talking. Bodine had decamped at the University of British Columbia to become the star attraction for the cult known as the Mobilization Against War and Occupation, which takes this "anti-war" line on Afghanistan: "Wherever Islam is fighting against imperialism, ‘The Left’ must join with Muslims in this fight."

Bodine's MAWO was the first to trot out the NDP's conspiracy theory about a secret federal plot to bar from Canada "international experts" and others who hold "opposing views" about Afghanistan. Bodine's cause was immediately taken up by NDP MPs Libby Davies, Bill Siksay and Alex Atamanenko, NDP MLA David Chudnovsky, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, the Richmond NDP, the Federation of Post-Secondary Educators, and the Capilano Students Union.

Actually, Bodine was sent back to Americaland because she lied to border authorities and tried to sneak into Canada twice in the same day, and an inquiry into her case found that the refusal to let her back into Canada had nothing to do with her "views," or her "anti-war" activities.

This is how the rot spreads. Galloway and Bodine are objectively pro-fascist and counsel support for a "resistance" that slaughters innocent Afghans and murders the Canadian soldiers who are there keep the Taliban at bay. Codepink takes tea with Iranian theocrats who lynch adulterers, torture dissidents and imprison trade unionists. All the degenerate Yankee comic Doug Benson had to say about Canada and Afghanistan was: "I didn't even know they were in the war. I thought that's where you want to go if you don't want to fight."

So, like, where's the outrage, man?

From Potter's blog...Kenney speaks well here, especially in the second part.

Question: There’s growing pressure for you to intervene in the George Galloway matter. Are you going to? Are you going to I guess change the government’s mind or the decision to ban him?

Hon. Jason Kenney: Well, I have no intention to. The Canadian Border Security agents made a preliminary assessment of Mr. Galloway’s admissibility to Canada. And they determined under Section 34-1 of the Immigration Refugee Protection Act that he would be likely inadmissible because of his material support for a banned illegal terrorist organization. According to Mr. Galloway’s own admission earlier this month, he provided financial and corporeal support to Hamas, an organization which deliberately targets and kills innocent civilians and is therefore illegal in Canada. I don’t see why I — we should make exceptions and override the decision of our professional border security agents in making a judgment about the inadmissibility of someone who provides funding and resources to an illegal terrorist organization.

Question: Those who argue it’s a free speech issue, what do you think of that?

Hon. Jason Kenney: It has nothing to do about speech, it has everything to do with actions. It’s not about words, it’s about deeds. It’s not about his opinions, it’s about his financial, material support for an illegal terrorist organization. The law is clear and experts will tell you this that anybody who provides material and financial support to an illegal terrorist organization is prima facie inadmissible to Canada. Our border security agents made that determination and I see no compelling reason why I should second guess them. If this was simply about, you know, Mr. Galloway expressing his opinions, I’m sure he can do that by publishing his views in Canada, by telling people his views. His views are no secret. I think they are odious but certainly in Britain he has a right to express them and if he was a Canadian citizen and he was already here he would have a right to express them verbally in Canada. That’s not the issue. The issue has nothing to do with freedom of speech and everything to do with the — maintaining the integrity of our Immigration Act which says that individuals who provide material and financial support to illegal terrorist organizations are inadmissible for entry to Canada. I think it’s a reasonable law and I have no intention of second guessing the considered opinion of our professional border security agents in that regard.

Jack's my meme man!

Great to read about the proposed dirtbag protest planned at the border. How many other chances do you get to have a barrel load of tosspots all within rotten tomato pelting distance?
