“Covington, Canada style”: Minor hockey players smeared for “mocking indigenous culture” are… Metis themselves

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Today I’ve got a wild story to tell you. It’s a Covington Catholic high school style rush to judgement, Canuck style.

This story has many of the same elements as the Covington story - an online outrage mob, an unwarranted apology, death threats, and another side of the story that made the mob and the “apologencia” look stupid.

Oh, and of course, the story now has lawyers ready to sue the pants off people. All this and hockey, too!

A Facebook video surfaced this week of three members of the Fort McMurray Junior Oil Barons dancing around their dressing room to popular indigenous music. One player was pounding on the lid of a garbage can like a drum.

Cue the social justice freakout!

According to Kelowna Now, one person who watched the video called it “pathetic,” while another stated “white people really need to stop mocking indigenous culture.”

Cue the apologies.

The local Minor Hockey Association released a statement saying “FMMHA is devastated by the actions of members of the Midget A Team in their disrespectful video… Their actions are in no way indicative of our values or the values of any of our House League or Elite Stream Junior Oil Barons teams.”

Cue the death threats and doxxing.

And cue the other side of the story. All three boys dancing in that video are, in fact, indigenous themselves…

According to Fort MacMurray Today:

“On Wednesday, a statement from lawyer Dwayne Roth, who is also CEO of the McKay Métis Group, said the teens are all Indigenous. Roth was acting as a spokesperson for the family of Chris Hamelin, the team captain who was in the video and a member of McMurray Métis Local 1935.

‘The dance was intended as motivational and was reflective of Chris’ culture. It was in no way disrespectful of Indigenous culture,’ he said.

Roth added that Hamelin’s grandfather is “a respected Métis elder” named Joe Hamelin, and that the teen recently dyed his hair blonde to support a friend with cancer.”

Jumping to conclusions and being offended on behalf of people who aren’t, divides us.

But the outrage mob will never learn from their mistakes.

The boys came to protest abortion
To a rally held down in DC
The outrage was out of proportion
OH bring back the death penalty

Bring back , bring back ,Oh bring back the death penalty
Bring back , bring back ,Oh bring back the death penalty

A shitstorm went out over TWITTER
The death threats ran rampant and free
The MSM pundits were bitter
Oh bring back the death penalty

A Vietnam vet baby killer
Who served in the Frigidaireborne
Got stared down by one smiling fellow
And became an object of scorn

The truth is “the drumming circle” theatrics are wearing thin from coast to coast… How about some bagpipes at similar ceremonies?

Oopsie!.. So the traditionally “no questions asked drumming circle” may have been a bit of an “in your face” piece of guerrilla theatre??? Say it isn’t so!!!

Lol! Nice to see some false “outrage” backfire on the sjw’s who make life so miserable for everyone.

Priceless! Well we can only guess that Canadian monkeys see, then Canadian monkeys do.
In the words of the great philosopher: “stupid is as stupid does”.

The Métis boy dying his hair blonde, was that not a form of cultural appropriation? Just asking for a friend. :-p

A sure sign of weakness is when the first thing that’s done is an apology, even when it’s not sure what the apology is for.

Beautiful Sheila. Eventually the race baiter’s have got to start realizing how badly they are humiliating themselves! Shame on those who rush to apologise. They are only giving the baiter’s fodder.

One common thread I am finding in this current run of absurdity….it is a protracted attack on teenaged boys and bears ALL of the hallmarks of FEMINAZI

The SJWs have found an ideal game of WHACK-A-MOLE….if the best we can do is respond ….then what you have is like a hockey situation where a goalie must face off alone for the penalty shot against an aggressive center forward player….always on the defensive…never getting a chance to shoot at the opposition goal.

So how do we turn that around and make THEM the ones who are always ducking….always apologising….always explaining….

Can you not see why the average German was relieved when the GESTAPO just rounded them up and stuck them in ORIENBURG doing the tedious paperwork of the bureaucracy that they were so familiar with anyway.
