This Friday, the Euro 2016 soccer tournament begins. European soccer fans love to dress up in their national costumes. In fact, it’s one of the only areas left where Europeans are allowed to have a national identity.
One traditional costume for British sports fans is that of a knight in shining armour, like St. George, the patron saint of England.
But that’s too Christian and militaristic for the tender souls at the BBC.
On their website, they made an issue out of these costumes. A Muslim told them, “Conquest and pillage in the name of Christianity isn't exactly a positive reminder of our history and not something we should really be celebrating.”
(Right. Conquest and pillage — such a Christian thing…)
This isn’t just political correctness or western self-loathing. This is Islamic historical revisionism.
Tonight I explain what the Crusades were really all about: They were a war to repulse Muslim conquerors, who are the role models for today’s Islamic State.
NEXT: Sun Media Columnist Lorrie Goldstein joins me to talk about Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne's latest green energy grab.
THEN Charles Burton, an expert in all things China, weighs in on that country's attack on Canada's free press, and whether Stephane Dion or Justin Trudeau should have done more to stand up for our country.
