Canadian conservatives have to stop saying "sorry"

Joshua LiebleinRebel Blogger
 

Dear Dave: You ask, “What would happen to Canadian politics if 4000 or 5000 people were snuffed out in the name of a religion?”

You were probably asking that rhetorically, but the truth is that Canadians would probably feel responsible and blame ourselves for the attack!

How do I know this? Because every time a terrorist has attacked or threatened to attack Canada, that’s exactly what’s happened.

Back in 2006 our security agency, CSIS, uncovered evidence of a plot to attack prominent targets in Ontario, including our Parliament buildings. Canadian pundits were shocked…and promptly blamed Harper for making Canada a terror target. Why? Because Harper was an “ideological ally” of George W. Bush, of course.

Almost a decade later, when an armed maniac actually did attack the Parliament buildings, the chattering classes blamed Harper again while tossing in a few jokes about how the Prime Minister was “hidden in a closet” by security instead of… I don’t know… killing the terrorist with his bare hands?

If this sounds a little weird to you, remember that Canadians are obsessed with their “international reputation.” Because we are a hideously insecure nation, we think everyone is watching and judging us.

So if terrorists want to attack Canadians, it must be because we’re doing something to make them mad!

It’s so bad that when terrorists attack your country, Canadians can’t help but talk about how you Yanks had it coming. When America was reeling in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, what did Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau have to say? He said the attack happened “because there is someone who feels completely excluded […] and our approach has to be, where do those tensions come from?”

Now you tell me: Could any American politician say something like that and keep their job?

Oh, but hold on: You and I have already covered this. These are Liberals, and we shouldn’t be listening to them. But can conservatives be counted on to unite against an external attack? Not according to this article in the National Post, where a bunch of unnamed “senior Conservatives insiders” are complaining off the record about Harper’s response to the Syrian refugee situation.

Are they saying Harper isn’t being tough enough about the possibility of ISIS agents slipping through the borders? Nope! They’re worried about Harper “being poorly advised on the Syrian refugee crisis”. The “base” (whoever they are) may not think flinging the borders open is a good idea, but the more important thing to these alleged conservatives is that a bunch of Liberal Premiers and mayors do, and it just looks really bad for the CPC to be in the minority here. The current Conservative response- just holding the line- “speaks to the worst instincts.”

Canadians do not fight back against external threats or take bold unilateral action. When a hero like Kevin Vickers shoots and kills a terrorist in the line of duty, he gets a standing ovation in the House of Commons and is promptly packed off to a comfy ambassadorship to Ireland because parading him through the streets or building him a statue would be unseemly.

When Canadian General Rick Hillier calls terrorists murderers and scumbags, journalists are horrified and blame him for detainee arrests. That’s probably why he’s now calling on the government to bring in as many refugees as possible.

There’s a great old saying in Canada, Dave: “Being a Liberal means never having to say you’re sorry.”  Until Canadian conservatives find their own way out of having to say sorry all the time and being shamed for their beliefs, we’ll be stuck in the margins.

Sorry for what. Not carrying out the left’s ultimate agenda as described in John Lennons song, imagine.

Jay Kelly; Re: Economist article: “That was because Alan, his five-year-old brother, Galib, and their mother, Rehan, all of whom perished, might possibly be alive now had it not been for a tightening in Canadian immigration policy. The boys’ aunt, who has lived in Vancouver for 20 years, had been trying to secure entry for her two brothers and their families.”

But we now know that is not true. The sister living in B.C. was trying to bring her older brother to Canada, not the younger brother. The family that drowned had been living safely in Turkey for 3 years. Theses folks were/are economic refugees. Their father a human-smuggler; the driver of the boat who provided no life jackets for his passengers…The media distorted the facts for its own gain. Shame? Surprise? No, just typical liberal/leftist B.S. Distorting the truth for its own purposes.

Thank you LLRFU for the laugh.
Obama sticker… too funny.

As a Canadian I don’t care what the rest of the world thinks of Canada because it doesn’t matter ( especially Europe ).
Canadians are responsible for their own lives and country not the media and when Canadians worry about not meeting or living up to another nations social standards and idealogies we set up our own nation for failure.
Those who work in the mainstream media think too highly of themselves and very little of the average citizen.

As an Immigrant, who came to Canada in 1968, I do not think that (Real) Canadians have a great deal to be sorry about. Of coarse, all the Liberal Governments that have Miss-Ruled Canada, since I have been here, do beg a big ‘Sorry’ from the square eyed Canadians, who, believing every thing they see on their Goggle Box, vote Liberal. Only a PC Government can drag us back to normality. Unfortunately, this takes time. My move to Canada was the best decision that I have ever made and I have never regretted it.
Come on Canada, hold your heads up high, as a Country, we have nothing to be ashamed of. Just make sure that you VOTE PC at the next Election. The last thing we need, is to be dragged down, to the level of, ‘The Dogma of Islam’. This is surely what will happen, with a Vote for Mulclair or Trudeau.

Believe me there are plenty in the USA have the same mentality. The whole “Harper hid in a closet” theme is childish at best. What do you think happens when an airplane breaks the airspace of Washington, DC that is not on a official flight plan? The first thing that happens is the secret service grabs the President and haul him off to a bunker. No one expects, in a terrorist attack, for the POTUS to slap on an armoured vest, pull out a machine gun, and start fighting off the terrorists himself. The idea is ludicrous and belongs in silly movies like Olympus has fallen. Harper didn’t “hide” in a “closet”. He was hauled off by security to a safe room until the situation was put under control. Does the CBC and others expect us to believe that Trudeau or Mulcair would have stepped out of parliament into the hall to confront the attacker, and offer them welfare for life if they would just put their gun down?

Vlad,
The money left Quebec and went to Ontario when the separatists came into power. The money was leaving Ontario and coming to Alberta because the liberals are destroying Ontario, economically. Unless Albertans get rid of Notley real quick. The money will start leaving Alberta also. The question is. Where will the money flow if the Federal Liberals or NDP come into power?
I disagree with MSM losing their grip. If MSM was objective all the gullible would not be gullible. Then Canadians would vote for Mr. Harper. Our Prime Minister should be way ahead in the polls.
But I am happy to point out that in England’s last election. The polls were neck and neck till the last day. And the Conservatives there won a huge majority.

LLRFU, “Bob”. That was hilarious

Sam. Allow me to expand on your point if I may. Lefty’s suffer from “backwards brain”. They truly think that us Anglo Saxon White Males robbed the earth and everyone else with our Capitalist Democracy, making everyone else “underdogs” and by extension, us the “bad guys”. This is why Trudon’t Senior stuck in the Charter the clause about those “historically disadvantaged”. In fact, what we did was blaze a trail for the rest to follow, and since we were first, it stands to reason the rest will take time to catch up. (And if you read Why Nations Fail, you’ll understand why that could take a very long time, but once started, it spreads and speeds up).
Now, take that formula, and apply it across the board, and you’ll see why I say they suffer Backwards Brain.
The feminists think us men oppressed them for 200yrs!! No, it took us men 800yrs to achieve rights, women 150, gays 25. In other words, we blazed that trail too. It’s because of their Backwards Brain that they feel guilty and want to “make up for the past”.

Of course, it doesn’t help Lefty’s are “incapable of learning”. So others will read this and learn something, Jimmy will read this and learn NOTHING!!! lol

We interrupt this comment section to bring you this funny from senior citizen “Bob”

My wife and I went into town and visited a shop. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and I said, “Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?” He just ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him an “a**hole.” He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires. So my wife called him a “s*ithead.” He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing more tickets. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote. He finally finished, sneered at us and walked away. Just then our bus arrived, and we got on it and went home. We always look for cars with Obama stickers. We try to have a little fun each day now that we’re retired. It’s so important at our age!!

“Being a Liberal means never having to say you’re sorry.”
Because it goes without saying, they are apologetic for everything.
Liberal Canadians say “excuse me” when they bump into the furniture!
Every minority grievance must be addressed with politically correct cash payouts.

The power centers and money flow is moving away from Quebec and toward the west.

So now the socialist/communist pigs of the east (Ontario and east) are building their teams out west to slow the change.

These communist pigs, including almost ALL CANADIAN MSM, are losing their grip they have held for decades.

The wild card is how convincing these communist fucking pigs can be and how gullible and stupid Canadian voters really are.

Leftists have characterized conservatives in such a way where conservatives are evil people that exploit and abuse those with less. So just being a conservative is a bad thing, and therefore, anybody who identifies as conservative is evil and should be apologetic.

And here was I, thinking that the author was actually taking the “documentary” Canadian Bacon seriously…

Tongue planted firmly in cheek, Prince.
commented 2015-09-14 14:34:58 -0400
This is tongue-in-cheek, correct? Because the only reason the Conservatives have to say “sorry” is for doing the job the Liberals would avoid in the first place — like defending Canadian people from these terrorists, and trying to take out ISIS
commented 2015-09-14 11:36:05 -0400
ISIS was formed in 1999 (When Clinton was President), the Iran hostage crisis was in 1979 (When Carter was President). When can the left finally figure out that any one of many western political ideologies is not suited to radical Islamic beliefs.?
