What are teachers REALLY telling your kids about terrorism? (Guest host: David Menzies)

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

(David Menzies guest hosts for Ezra Levant...) A recent Toronto Star article pondered what teachers in the school system should say to their pupils about terrorism:

“With high-profile attacks dominating social media and news coverage around the world, Canada’s elementary and high school teachers increasingly find themselves addressing students’ questions, fears and stereotypes about terrorism and violence.”

“Stereotype”? That sounds like code for not actually talking about the types of people who are predominately carrying out these atrocities.

An executive with the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation told the Star that government, school boards and teachers’ unions should train teachers how to have these discussions in the classroom.

I’ve got a better idea:

WATCH as I present my politically correct guidelines for talking to kids about terrorism.

PLUS: Was there a “racist” football-themed float in the most recent St. Jean Baptise Day parade in Montreal? Outraged (white) observers say yes, the team’s (black) coach says no — but who wants to bet that next year, parade organizers will conduct “racial screening” on every float, just in case?

TONIGHT’S GUEST: Sun columnist Lorne Gunter and I talk about how badly the Liberals miscalculated the public response to the Omar Khadr payout.

This from an origination that was hoping for an ISIS attack on Parliament Hill on Canada Day!?!

You have the nuts to say that the ‘teachers’ are being propagandists?

Where’s the apology from Ezra over his comments (And cheering) about a terrorist attack on Canada Day???

Talk about ‘fake news’…

Possibly the best argument against Junior paying out $10.5 million is that if left to the courts, we could assume that adults were involved and the pros and cons were considered. Even if it ended up costing more we would have a legal position. Now we have a precedent of paying 10 million for political purposes. Khadr was a confessed non uniformed combatant (in a US military court proceeding and he was not a child soldier under UN criteria. In addition the ‘crimes’ of torture are from Khadr’s deposition and have not been explored in court and were conducted under the Chretien government. The level of torture and the Liberal government’s complicity are now buried.
So now we have a political, not a legal, precedent for paying citizens who take up arms against their country that hides political involvement. We lost all the way around.

Well, if David Menzies – or anyone else for that matter – has to be the one to tell parents what their kids are learning drivel, then there’s (a) a far bigger problem out there, that (b) explains why this kind of teaching is going on.

What the teachers are teaching in high school is extremely important for our future. I remember when I was in grade 11 social studies ~50 years ago and we had a controversial teacher who literally tore the standard text book to shreds. To this day, I thank Mr L. for teaching us how to read the Media. (And history books.)
What teachers are teaching now should be recorded and available to the parents and public.
If this can’t be done officially and if you have children in school, please try to get recordings of this.
Small secret audio recorders can be purchased. A cell phone is too obvious. Such recordings could be edited for brevity and posted on Youtube with little identity other than “A Canadian History Teacher.”
Seriously, we need to know this.

Just read a Toronto judge refused a request to freeze Khadr’s assets and the lawyer questioned the timing of the request. I guess no one in their right mind would have guessed the government was about to make him the new lottery winner.

Dear Dave M. It would be a big improvement if you could express all the same ideas but in a literal mode. I realize this is difficult sometimes but please try. ps The last bit was hilarious.

Evelyn Cooper: Interesting your post was timely to me who had just finished watching Rush Limbaugh expressing shock at Republicans who haven’t figured out Obama 7 years into his administration. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lgd55wmgYH8

I finished my e-mail campaign – only a handful of Liberal MP’s didn’t make it on my list.

I’m waiting to hear from Andrew Scheer, I corresponded with him to provide a copy of the letter I sent to Liberal MP’s; and asked that this be shared among Conservative MP’s. It would save time if Andrew Scheer could distribute this for me. If I don’t hear back in the next day or two, I will send it myself.

- Given the political actions of teachers unions I’ve learned not to trust them at all. I give them the same amount of trust as I’d give the mainstream media – in other words, none.

- The Omar Khadr incident will be pushed out of the spotlight as soon as the Liberals do something worse – which we know is going to happen. This Liberal government is made up of activists & their puppets & it shows.

- Looks like some politically correct tool at the food inspection agency is a BDS tool as well. This underlines why we need a lot less government – starting with dissolving the LCBO. The Canadian consumer shouldn’t be held hostage to some activist idiot.

- The race card has been overplayed. It’s become ridiculous & meaningless at this point. SJWs are socially retarded. Caving into them is the real disgrace.

Trump needs to audit the Clinton foundation, and Canadians need to audit the Trudeau foundation. These funds are the slush funds for terrorist activity of which our government is involved in. And I’ll bet our money is in there too, with the sleight of hand economic tools that the liberals are using.

Any celebration of any culture that has been traditionally white is now viewed by leftists as being racist and white supremacist. Essentially if you are not a white apologist you are a white supremacist.

BRAVO ZULU, only $20 million going to the Clinton Foundation out of a $241 million commitment, but problematic nevertheless.

Did not the PMO signal terrorists; that they are free to kill; being as they are, more tolerated than other Canadians such as our Veterans ?
commented 2017-07-12 23:51:49 -0400
When a combatant against Canada, who may well have killed Canadian soldiers with the IEDs he assembled, can appeal to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, then that makes a travesty of the charter.

If joining al Qaeda is how Khadr Sr repayed Chretien for getting him out of the Pakistani jail, I shudder to think how Khadr Jr will repay Trudeau for the apology and $10,500,000.00.

Trudeau is a total disgrace.

The decision to pull wine made in Israel is ridiculous. I will be writing the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and LCBO to protest and demand that this decision be reversed immediately!

That it’s the “white guys” fault of course………PC and Islam are both clearly mental diseases.
commented 2017-07-12 20:56:07 -0400
10.5 million payout to a convicted terrorist & apology – It looks to me like Trudeau was listening to the “diverse” section of the Liberal Members of Parliament – Omar Alghabra, Iqra Khalid, Faycal El-Khoury,Ahmed Hussen, Maryan Monsef , Ali Ehassi, Majid Jowhari, Yasmin Ratansi, Marwan Tabbara,Arif Virani, Salma Vahid….. I think I’m missing a few!

The outrage is palpable, and, this will permanently damage the Trudeau regime. The Khadr family has been a horrible blight on Canada for decades!
commented 2017-07-12 20:55:31 -0400
Trudeau knew Cdns would be against it, which is why he released it while over seas and refused to address it. The real reason is because he’s converted to Islam and supports it. Supporting my view is how he went out of his way to circumvent Mrs Speers getting any of it. I mean, what does he care if Khadr gets undermined? Well he cares because he’s converted to Islam and supports him, that’s why.

Just wait til some of that money gets used against our troops, and Trudeau will try to cover for him!!

As posted before, I honoured Eid by purchasing Gov’t of Israel bonds.

I buy Israeli products every time the BDS movement reminds me to. Sadly, I have developed an allergy to red wine, and I mean sadly because fine red wine was my preferred poison. But Idid support the Israeli wineries when I did drink a fine wine.

Son, terrorists are maniacal foreign psychopaths who hate everything about us which your government invites into the country and funds by stealing Daddy’s money, to keep us in a constant state of fear and turmoil so that same government has an excuse to take away your freedoms of expression, association, mobility and legal rights.

Good show Mr. Menzies. It would be nice seeing you host a Saturday journal.
commented 2017-07-12 20:22:20 -0400
Oh please, the leftists love to see that terrorist being paid out with our tax dollars.
