A terrorist has been granted bail, and the left-wing intelligentsia rejoices. It’s shocking, really. Or at least it should be.
But sadly, Omar Khadr being the toast of Canadian newsrooms and faculty lounges isn’t shocking in the least.
As the children of Khadr’s victim, Christopher Speer, grow up without their heroic father, his murderer may get to join society. That prospect should outrage all decent people.
Khadr has shown no contrition and there’s no reason to think that he and his radical ideology aren’t a danger to our way of life.
Yet, the same folks who would be mortified by living next door to Paul Bernardo or OJ Simpson are now celebrating the prospects of freedom for Khadr.
Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party of Canada, and a Member of Parliament even offered to host Khadr “if he needed a place to stay.”
And who could forget when the Ottawa Citizen published an 800-word propaganda column by Khadr, conveniently omitting the fact that he is a convicted, confessed Islamic terrorist. Do you think they’d ever offer editorial space to Bernardo?
What is different about this murderer from Bernardo or Simpson? Could it be that Khadr’s crime was driven by ideology? It is the same reason why the only public monument that has serious opposition in Canada is that for the “Victims of Communism”.
Elites are sympathetic to Khadr’s anti-Western and anti-American ideology. Their blind support for a terrorist because of a bizarre illogical attachment is beyond misplaced. It’s anti-Canadian. That a Member of Parliament offers to take in a murderer is foul.
But it’s not just Elizabeth May that’s playing this game with Canada’s honour.
Tabatha Southey, a columnist for the Toronto Globe and Mail, took to Twitter to say:
Omar Khadr has been granted bail, pending his appeal. All is *slightly* better in the world. Good luck in all things, Mr Khadr.— Tabatha Southey (@TabathaSouthey) April 24, 2015
“Good luck in all things…” Such disgusting sentiments go beyond Khadr’s case or ideology.
This is an attack on decency.
A wife became a widow, and her children became fatherless. They will bear that burden for the rest of their lives. There is never any cause for celebration when a murderer may be set free.
The elites in Canada can have their day and celebrate this ridiculous ruling.
The rest of us severely normal Canadians will continue to respectfully stand in solidarity with the family of Christopher Speer.
