Who did “PM Zoolander” rush to honour: Tyrant Fidel Castro or fallen Canadian hero?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

Let’s compare the priorities of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau this week. 

This week murderous, communist tyrant Fidel Castro died and took his rightful place in hell.

In the same week, a Canadian fighter jet pilot named Thomas McQueen died in a training exercise on the Saskatchewan side of the Cold Lake air weapons range.

Who did Prime Minister Yoga Pants rush to honour? The man who gave his life serving Canada or the man who was against every shared value Canadians hold dear?

Watch my video to see the predictably disappointing answer.

I don't expect much out of PM Zoolander. I never did. But I do expect him to honour our fallen heroes more quickly than he does a communist murderer.

To repeat: Captain Thomas McQueen, 29 years old, a pilot in the Canadian Airforce, was in the Forces for ten years, and was set to be married.

The Rebel and a couple of other outlets mention him only in relation to Castro.

McQueen was killed last Monday when his CF-18 Hornet went down during a training mission near the Saskatchewan/Alberta border.

His service to Canada was not only in relation to Castro, in fact he had no connection to Cuba.

The Rebel got it wrong this time. We should show some respect for this man for who he was.

Hey Jamie and Brent….
Deep breaths fellas… We may disagree on a few things but I can tell what we’re writing about is we’re both on the same side and even you fellas are on the same side, you’re just misunderstanding what each other’s writing because were all wound up..
Slowdown fellows because this is what the other side wants… Jamie and Brant you are both well right of center… You’re not Communist sympathizers and you’re certainly not fans of the liberals.

Oh, oh. Now Jay Kelly is missing the point again. Back to his usual form".
His service to Canada was not only in relation to Castro, in fact he had no connection to Cuba."
No one said he did. That pesky logic is still proving difficult I see.
commented 2016-12-01 00:53:44 -0500
Honestly Jay… I know baiting people is fun so I’m just hoping that’s why you’re doing it because you can’t really be serious about enjoying the benefits of communism… Come on buddy that ain’t where it’s at..

McQueen was killed Monday when his CF-18 Hornet went down during a routine training mission near the Saskatchewan/Alberta border.

No moron,
I am upholding the service, and this old marine just called you out asshole!
So show up and run your big mouth,
Or shut the fuck up!
commented 2016-11-30 18:28:13 -0500
What a windbag. If you really were in the military, you’re disgracing the service.
commented 2016-11-30 17:49:14 -0500
So Jamie,
I see you are one of the newer liberal trolls at this site?
I hope I get to see the day when morons like you, and Kelly, and Christensen, etc., etc.
Actually have to stand up in front of real people, face to face, while spouting your leftwing bullshit.

I invite you to Oshawa Ontario, on Levy Day, where you can run your mouth to me, and several other prior service/active duty military personal.
Oh,
And Jamie,
Make sure you bring your health insurance card…….
commented 2016-11-30 15:20:38 -0500
Oh, one more thing BRENT.
Your silly comment : "Consider yourself " Locked On ".

Consider your comment “Laughed At”.
commented 2016-11-30 15:02:34 -0500
Bully for you BRENT.
You made a conscious and informed adult decision to join the military. Want us to call you a hero?
As far as I’m concerned your decision rates no higher than somebody who decides to fall tall timber or fight fires.

“Trudeau is a disgrace and an embarrassment to Canada.
I wonder how many people that voted for him are regretting it now.”

Judging by the bombastic attempts of the Lib trolls on this site and others (NP for example) the Libs are no doubt terrified that their popularity is in the toilet, far less than the original 39.47%.

However you will still have their main voter base unmoved – Libs patiently grazing the grass at their feet waiting for the legalization of pot, the public sector voters that don’t care one way or the other provided they get their raises, funding, and grants on time. I’d guess they lost at least 10 -15 percent of their voter base over the last few debacles otherwise the site wouldn’t have so many new aliases spouting the similar propaganda (WretchEarth/Moderate Lib/Ethan – MRFUFU/Jay Kelly mouthier than normal, etc,).

Trudeau does not care for this young man, nor any other Canadian that would put themselves in harms way to protect us, when will you people wake up to this.

One year in folks, are you feeling the liberal love yet?
commented 2016-11-30 12:00:37 -0500
Jamie,
I can tell that you have never served before;
The life of a serviceman, is a life of sacrifice and service to his or her’s country.
When I left Canada to join the Marines during Desert Storm, I was making $46,000.00 can. a year, the Marines started me at $14,000.00 a year.
My family and I felt very patriotic towards the cause against a dicktator by the name of " Uncle Sadamm ". Trudeau admires many uncles;
Uncle Joe, Uncle Mao, Uncle Fidel, Uncle Raul…….., the list goes on.
Servicemen and their families are subject to orders, no public sector hours, wages, benefits, pensions etc.
Ours is a chosen life of sacrifice to our countries, and whether in peace or war, they sacrifice every day for you and me.
They and thier families are all heros to me.
Consider yourself " Locked On ".

We all lament the senseless loss of one of our highly trained military people who stand ready to put their lives on the line for the safety of all Canadians. Mr. Trump has the class to phone the wives of murdered police men. I hope Mr. Trudeau will make the same gesture.
commented 2016-11-30 11:23:01 -0500
C’mon Jamie, what Sheila is saying is that military members themselves, those who put their lives on the line for us, are heroes. They are not heroes for dying. Sheesh.
commented 2016-11-30 09:58:31 -0500
I have the utmost respect for members of our military, but being killed in an accident does not make anyone a hero.

Every WWII veteran that I knew would get embarrassed and angry if anyone suggested they were “heroes”. In their world (and mine) the word “hero” was reserved for guys like Smokey Smith and Paul Triquet.

Tax time is coming up in a few months, it would be nice if the thieves didn’t have all that Canadian money to give away and line their pockets with. I’m not sayin… I’m just sayin.

Farewell to this fallen Canadian son, Thomas McQueen, a true hero to all who speak his name and walk in his steps, god bless him and his family, we grieve with you, as it is all our loss to bare.

Roger said, “It is a cancer to us, it must be treated and removed as such, as quickly as possible.”

I have some ideas as to how this can be done, but maybe you have some peaceful methods in mind? ;o)
commented 2016-11-30 07:01:41 -0500
First off, all Canadians must come to terms with the fact that our Government is not enacting the will of its people anymore, but following the UN protocols set out for them to bring about the changes they want made to Canada.

In one year this has become entrenched in all our Government services, at all levels.

It was just a liberal problem, now it is NDP as well and even some Conservatives.

It is a cancer to us, it must be treated and removed as such, as quickly as possible.

Rick Plesnik said, “I fear though, that Canadians really are too stupid to see the writing on the wall, especially the 38 odd percent that voted for Trudope!”

I fear that you are correct, though I would give allowance for maybe 1% see Truedope for what he really is, a communist dictator loving wanna-be dictator.

As many have said on this website before, all socialists have a dictator inside screaming to get out. And Truedope is definitely a socialist wanna-be dictator.

Al,
I couldn’t disagree more. Sheila is pointing out the obvious, it is Trudeau’s job to honor our fallen, to express his loss and remorse on behalf of all Canadians, not the opposite regarding one of the planets worst dictators!
I know something about military regs and government protocols regarding an accident in the military, first hand. Currently, the rebel may not be able to publish a proper story on Thomas McQueen, and I’ll bet the museum piece he was flying broke down on him?
Daryl, Bravo Zulu is still out of the country…..
commented 2016-11-30 03:13:09 -0500
Nope I disagree with Jay and Al… The rebel is only there pointing out the story and letting us make up our own minds about it like good media should do..
Trudeau honors nothing about our military…

PM selfie’s honeymoon with the public is crashing quickly. The next election will be the CPC’s to lose.

Jay Kelly the Rebel did not honor a murdering dictator and ignore a Canadian pilot, the PM did that. And the point is very valid.
commented 2016-11-30 01:24:19 -0500
Jay Kelly the Rebel is not the PM of Canada.
commented 2016-11-30 00:37:50 -0500
Actually Jay may have got it right this time. And I have never agreed with Jay before. He is not disrespecting the military. He is saying that even The Rebel did not cover the pilot’s death except as a way to attack Trudeau. This was an appropriate story as always from Sheila Gunn Reid but Jay is correct. If the story is as significant to Canadians as Sheila says it would only be fitting for the Rebel to have covered it in some depth apart from the appropriate attack on the PM Zoolander.
