Copycat Canadian leftists join the craze to erase history

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

You’ve seen this story, right? "Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario calls on districts to rename John A. Macdonald schools”

It’s styled as anti-racism, because Macdonald supported the idea of residential schools to assimilate Indian children.

I know a residential school graduate. He’s a lawyer, and told me that he owes all of his success to residential schools.

I’m sure there are many horror stories too, but the object of those schools was to integrate Aboriginal kids into the mainstream. Should those children have been treated as cultural curiosities instead, denied the benefits from and access to our culture?

And if you’re angry about residential schools, are you also against the Indian Act? It literally treats Indians as second-class citizens, denying them the rights to even have their own last will and testament. If you’re against the former but not the latter, you might be a hypocrite.

Note that the target chosen here, John A. Macdonald, was a Conservative prime minister — not a liberal or a leftist.

What about Tommy Douglas, father of the NDP, spiritual leader to so many Canadian leftists. He wanted gays to see psychiatrists and the poor to be sterlized. Should we tear down his statues and re-name schools too?

As usual, this is just our leftist activists and media copying American ones, after what happened in Charlottesville.

That attempt to rewrite and erase history is literally fake news. We never had slavery in Canada.

Well, that’s not entirely true. There actually was an important slave trade in Canada.

An Aboriginal slave trade…

NEXT: Our Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid comes on to update her disturbing investigation into NDP leadership hopeful Niki Ashton's opinions on Israel and anti-Semitism.

THEN: Fearless free speech activist Pamela Geller joins me to talk about PayPal's sudden termination of her account, which she uses to help fund her work.

This is just the latest example of the left-leaning Silicon Valley crackdown on conservatives online, which is why The Rebel is building its own independent app. This will help ensure that social media giants can't cut you off from our reporting.

Calling a racist a racist is not rewriting history, it’s just telling the truth. Something Ezra Levant and the like can learn about.

Sir John A. MACDONALD (1890) reflecting on the massive immigration of Slavic and Southern Europeans into the United States, a movement he deplored, Macdonald is quoted as saying:

“It is a great country, but it will have its vicissitudes and revolutions. Look at the mass of foreign ignorance and vice which has flooded that country with socialism, atheism and all other isms”.

Quoted in AVERY, Dangerous Foreigners, p. 40.

Just replace Slavic and Southern Europeans with Muslims and it will be clear that Ezra Levant and the like are the new racists aka Islamophobes.

The residential schools were active until 1990’s. That means every Prime Minister from MacDonald to Cretien gave at least tacit approval to them including the lefts beloved Trudeau the first. So if we must get rid of names on buildings, airports etc let’s start there.

Grande Prairie in Alberta is Canada’s most dangerous city.

http://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/canada-most-dangerous-cities-2016-safe-your-city/

Muslims account for less than 1% of Grande Prairie residents (search “NHS Profile, Grande Prairie, CY, Alberta, 2011”).

Canada is a much safer country today than it was in the 70’s when Canada’s population was overwhelmingly White.

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/canadas-crime-rate-drops-with-homicides-at-46-year-low/article13416456/

“The British Columbia city of Kelowna had the highest crime rate last year while Toronto had the lowest for the sixth year in a row. "

According to Statcan:

Toronto: 50% White, 6% Muslim
Kelowna: 90% White, 0.2% Muslim

Ethnically diverse cities like Toronto and Vancouver are considerably safer than predominantly White cities like Grande Prairie and Red Deer.

http://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/canada-most-dangerous-cities-2016-safe-your-city/

According to Statcan:

Grande Prairie: 86% White
Red Deer: 88% White
Toronto: 50% White
Vancouver: 46% White

Is political correctness preventing us from discussing how we can address rampant crime in predominantly White cities like Grande Prairie and keep Canadians safe?

Lies about terrorism from Ezra Levant and the like are exposed.

In EU, White people are responsible for the vast majority of terrorist incidents.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorism#/media/File:Terro.jpg

“The largest number of attacks in which the terrorist affiliation could be identified were carried out by ethno-nationalist and separatist extremists (99). Attacks carried
out by left-wing violent extremists have been on the rise since 2014; they reached
a total of 27 in 2016, of which most (16) were reported by Italy. The number of
jihadist terrorist attacks decreased from 17 in 2015 to 13 in 2016, of which 6 were
linked to the so-called Islamic State (IS).

Apart from jihadist, ethno-nationalist and left-wing extremist attacks, an increasing
stream of violent assaults by right-wing extremist individuals and groups was
noted across Europe, in particular over the past two years, targeting asylum
seekers and ethnic minorities in general. An average of nearly 10 attacks a day were carried out on refugees in Germany in 2016, according to Germany’s Interior Ministry, as reported in open source media."

A little off subject of slaves, but I got invited to an Andrew Scheer speech in Penticton tomorrow night.
My reply said that tomorrow I would be with Canada’s true Opposition ," The Rebel Media."
Maybe it is not off subject as we are slaves to the Liberal Policies.

Aman dingus – Well Aman, I suggest you F -off back to your ancestral homeland then. YOU are the arsehole of Canada blowing hot smelly air into the atmosphere. Not only are you a climate change criminal but also ignorant of human history. Looking back from a modern perspective in an attempt to change the past to suit your twisted and ignorant perspectives is a one way trip to destruction. It is all a diversion away from what ALL Canadians really need. The Left has no policy except the policy of self destruction they inherited from their predecessors. They have no clue how to run a nation and therefore get idiots like you obsessed with some sort of blame game. A blame game that will, I predict shortly, will lead to unprecedented violence in the US. Here are some interesting facts of history….

1. Blacks and Arabs ( hmm. like YOU) RAN the slave trade.
2. Free Blacks in the US OWNED SLAVES.
3. The original Liberal Party wanted to JOIN THE US.
4. The man appointed by the Liberal’s to create the Government of Canada Oscar D. Skelton was a Communist and filled Canada’s top government positions with COMMUNISTS. The Liberal Party was being used as a FRONT for these Communists.
5. If the America’s were not invaded by European’s, it would have eventually been invaded by someone else like the Japanese or Chinese. Hmmm. how much sympathy do you think they would have had for aboriginal rights >>>??

As a part aboriginal Canadian myself, I feel I have some say in all this. I have worked closely with aboriginal groups and can say without a doubt that many have indeed swallowed the leftist playing card with “cry me a river” printed on it. The history you want to erase to suit your political non-position includes the fact that many WHITES that later came to America were orphans, with nothing. The were referred to home boys and were part of a large movement in the UK to find homes for orphans. They had no one but themselves. Yet many prospered and worked their way up. Many were also Irish. Irish were referred to a white niggers. So they had the same stigma as blacks and like blacks could be recognized on the streets. Many rose to prominence.

The British Isles, you know that place all you anti-rascist retards think eveyone was born with a silver spoon in their mouths. That island was invaded by the Romans, Vikings, Normans etc. etc and its people enslaved. It endured the Barbary slave trade as well. Yet THEY NEVER GAVE UP.

You Socio-Communist morons NEVER bring forward the success of many blacks and others and for your ignorant political purposes want to ERASE the successes of those you purport to represent so you can continue to use RACE and Colour and Religion as your political tools. YOU are the ones keeping racism alive YOU are the ones who perversely get off on the blame game but have absolutely NO INTEREST in a solution. You want to tear down MY history and replace it with YOUR ignorant, stupid and narrow perspective on history. In fact, what the hell do you people actually know about Canadian history?

When I was a kid I went to school with two black kids. I played hockey with a black kid. It was not until some socialist shit for brains brought up race that one started to think about such things. I never saw their colour until some f-in socialist had to raise this crap in school. It never crossed my mind until that time and it was that leftist brainwashing that began an inner feeling of guilt I never had before and I began to look at black people differently. As I educated myself I began to realize the utter and sheer bull shit they were teaching us. This drive to step on MY HISTORY to perpetuate some ignorant leftist idea of what black history was. That made me look at black people with even more suspicion as to what their real motivations were. Since that time I have done my best to fight for the recognition of black veterans in Canada but those standing in the way are the very same ignorant morons on the socio-communist left that want all whites to feel some guilt for how blacks were treated in the US some 150 years ago!
THAT is why the Bible talks about the innocence of children. Kids dont see colour. Now the left wants to brainwash kids with crap about sex and it is all bases on the same political motivation. I have determined looonnng ago that those who purport to be on the side of the oppressed are simply using them as political tools as they are rarely if ever interested in solutions and helping these people OUT of their situation.

Take a hint from my ancestors, MOVE ON – MOVE FORWARD, SUCK IT UP and forget the blame game. If you actually looked into the TRUTH of history there is more than enough blame to go around FOR EVERYONE, no matter who you think you are.

If they plan to renamed schools named after our founding father, they better re-name all those government and public institutions named after Pearson, Trudeau, Pickersgill, Robertson etc. etc because the evidence is now coming out that they were all traitors and secretly working for the Communists and the USSR.

Why do some bands flourish and some bands flounder? Because some put the past in an appropriate place and look forward, and because of progressive Chief’s, like Louey and others. It is the Belgard’s that perpetuate this nasty Indian as victim crap. The chief’s who do that and those who have bought into ‘white guilt’ are the real racists. Why are the band Chief’s who help embolden their members to succeed, ridiculed by the ones who only fill their own pockets with gov. money, don’t do a damn thing for their people and blame it on the government when there are murders, incest, poverty and suicide? The Indians I know are succeeding because they have progressive leadership in the band, or they left to build lives outside the reserves.

We all live in the 21 st century now, that’s just the way it is. What is past is a part of history. Wanting success and equality for everyone is not the new racist. Nope.

I’ll tell you what’s racist. SJW’s who insist on using ‘Indians’(if it’s good enough for Chief Clarence Louey, it’s good enough for me). Keeping people in perpetual victim hood, keeps them from their potential. Time to allow Indians the same opportunities in every way so they can make it or break it, like anyone else. SJW’s think Ben Carson is racist for saying basically the same things about Blacks in America. Some responsibility must be taken, families must be healed, not torn apart. The government has to stay out of it, other than to encourage a healthy economic environment so success is possible. Residential schools were good and bad. They were intended for good. No intentional harm was meant by the government.

Space Moose said "People are sick of hearing about residential schools used as an excuse for aboriginals to commit crimes, use welfare, or to demand reparation. The aboriginals were not the only group on earth to ever get their asses kicked. Many other races had it way worse. But none of these other races play the residential school card. "

That is the kind of shit the shills at fox news say about black people, latinos, people with olive coloured skin. Everyone except white people.

That is typical prejudiced prejudiced stereotyping and ad hominem attacks. You speak of entire ilks and races of people as if they owe you something and they’re below you. You sound like the assholes on red ice videos. That is the very thing I do not like about conservatives. You pick on people and then complain “I’m not a racist. Libtards only call me racist to stifle my freeze peach.” Well guess what you’re fucking racist. Fucking own it.
