Government hosts most unCanadian celebration on Canada’s 150th

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Canadian governments have decided that the way to throw a party for our country’s 150th birthday is to spend their way into hosting the most unCanadian celebration ever. 

The Liberals allotted half a billion dollars, in part, to bring in half of Irish band U2.

The Ontario Liberals doled out hundreds of thousands to rent a giant, and allegedly, counterfeit duck and Calgary brought in a giant red ball with part of the $700K the Liberals gave the city for celebrations.

What does this all have to do with Canada?

Nothing much. But as I explain in my video, I think the worst thing to come out of this spending spree is the fancy logo design.

I can’t begin to imagine the cost of branding and executing this new logo that came as a result of a design competition the Conservatives held to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday celebration.

Not only was this project a waste of taxpayer money, but the idea that we need to change or alter traditional symbols that represent us as a nation, is a slippery slope that may begin with minor changes to a holiday, but what comes next?

I don’t like it when the government overspends and wastes taxpayer dollars for un-Canadian celebrations on the nation’s birthday, and modifying our national symbols is about as un-Canadian as you can get.

Leviticus 2013,

You made the claims about me. The onus is on you to prove it.

I don’t respect you, so why would I give a shit what you have to say? You constantly say crazy shit on The Rebel. This is just more crazy shit to add on the pile.

What’s your real name by the way. People can’t accuse you of anything, because you hide behind a Leviticus 2013 user name.

And by the way Jamie… The judge certainly didn’t support the pedophile who wrote that curriculum because he sent that motherfucker to the farm.. And he probably did that because he knew that the majority of the people in society unlike yourself don’t support pedophilia or pedophiles.
commented 2017-07-02 23:27:20 -0400
Then you should be fighting to educate those parents, to educate them to know that this is wrong Jamie…
And I could learn nothing from your closeted attempts to brainwash the weak through propaganda into accepting pedophilia you pretend to not embrace.!!
Now I believe you were talking out of both sides your mouth because you are supporting the so-called parents who support something that you say was wrong.
And I would sooner be bat shit crazy than a hypocrite pedophilia supporter who sits on the fence to see what happens next..
No Jimmy… Weren’t you supposed to show me some ancient threads from Kathleen Wynne articles where are you denounced her and pedophilia..? I know if I was accused of such a thing that I would spend day and night digging up those ancient posts until I found them to support myself but you are a pedophile and a cunt whose lies are only overshadowed by their hypocrisy..!!

Leviticus 2013,

Then get the fuck out of a Canada, since this country reflects my views more than your views. If you live in parts of the west ala not BC, you are just among Canada’s Texas and not real Canadians.

Again, the majority of parents support the sex ed curriculum – so much so, that Patrick Brown has said that if he is elected, he won’t overturn it. He knows that parents will not won’t vote for him if he tries to overturn it, so he is staying away from that issue.

You have such a hyperbolic and batshit crazy view of it all, but that’s no surprise since you are not reasonable or rational about anything on here.

You could learn from this, but of course you won’t read it.

I don’t like your kind a change Jimmie..
Show me where you denounced pedophilia, Kathleen Wynne and the jailed criminal pedophile who wrote the sex education curriculum for prepubescent children.!!!
Or acts of Islamic terrorism for that matter..!!
And remember Jimmy no matter how good on the computer you are all postings have a timestamp and be sure to include it in the link.!
When Muslims are running people over, blowing them up, shooting them, stabbing them rapeing the women and forcing mutilation on their children we don’t even hear a peep out of you then.
We hear the same constant SJW vomit out of you and I am sick of it..
You support acts of terrorism by your silence and your noncommitment to mainstream Canada who is abhorred by these Islamic acts of violence around the world and yet you say nothing about it.
Jimmy you’re a pedophile
and a cunt and your silence is your submission to what your support.!!

Jim Webb,

You can’t stop progress and change. Society is never going to be what you want it to be.

Certainly you can fight change, but you will never win ultimately, especially when you live in a country that fundamentally doesn’t share your views and ideology.

Why do you liberals have been in power for the vast majority of Canada’s history. Has it not occurred to you yet that Canada is a liberal/progressive country and perhaps you should be living in a country that shares your views instead.

Jimmy Reece..You have not answered the question about Agenda 21..Are you for it? Or against it? Or do you know what it is all about? There, you have a multiple choice question to answer. Let’s see how much of a Canadian you are?

Jim Webb.
Good post and fundamentally true… I especially liked the reference to Star Trek with resistance is futile. If that was the case communism would never be overthrown. Resistance is the backbone of decency.!!
commented 2017-07-02 19:34:29 -0400
And one more thing Jimmy… Don’t expect anybody here to Secour and cuddle you because Leviticus is hanging you by your hair for all to see.
You are a confirmed leftist and a confirmed leftist supporter and you have never denounced anything with conviction what the liberals have done to malign the lives of the children in this country.
commented 2017-07-02 19:26:02 -0400
As well … I invite the gentle people on this thread to check out our comments on the rubber duck that you worship..
You know… we’ll give them a little insight to what’s going on here between me and you.

Hey Jimmie I left you a bunch of homework on the other thread you pedophile so either put up or shut up or come in under one of your many pseudonyms and I will engage them as well..
You’re not just a pedophile Jimmy you’re a cunt..!!

Adapt or die over questions of ideology? What a delightfully fascist lens you put on the world.
History is full of instances where folks did neither, but instead chose to defend what they had. Sometimes immediate, sometimes delayed, and with various outcomes; but the “resistance is futile” school of thought is patently false and should remain the province of cheesy Star Trek re-runs.
History also shows that one of the common “adaptations” to change throughout time has been a societal shift from peaceful coexistence to active warfare, if the change sought is fundamentally repugnant enough. To think anyone is going to just sit back and swallow change for change’s sake may well be a wet dream of HR professionals everywhere, but is nevertheless an incredibly naive approach to take for the real world.

Yes, it perfectly reasonable and rational to go around calling people you don’t know and disagree with a pedophile. You are making my case for the insanity of the extreme right, so thank you.

I really hate that band.

Rob Greeley,

Adapt or die is life. Businesses change, people change, society changes or they die or go out of business.

Welcome to the realities of life.

Jimmy Reece..Stupid People don’t change..they can’t..hence why they are stupid..There is way too many stupid People in the World who have been given power and wealth to proceed with their stupid..idiotic agenda 21..You do know about Agenda 21..don’t you? Are you stupid?

lawrence O’Byrne,

Thanks for confirming that you are a archaic, out of touch and you don’t deserve to call yourself Canadian.

hey reece in case you didn’t know it and I know you don’t [ your too stupid ] but the English beat the French on 13 sept 1759 and although the French were badly beaten we now have French morons like pansy turdo and his libtards destroying Canada and useful idiots like you are happy , probably because you have no sense of self worth , you like being lead around by the nose , your a pathetic uncanadian fool , are you a millennial . go eff yourself

lawrence O’Byrne,

That’s what it is – history. It’s doesn’t represent NOW, you archaic fuck. Times change, people change, society changes. Adapt or die.

reece shut your brain washed pie hole you moron , your lot doesn’t have a clue about our history you illiterate dog
commented 2017-07-02 15:08:43 -0400
Jimmy Reece – what the Hell are you babbling about??? I didn’t say anything about “black people” or “women’s rights”… I was talking about the 1950s when immigrants to Canada adopted Canadian values without bitching and became proud Canadians who were glad to have fled the horrors of Communism or the ravaged economies of post-war Europe…

lawrence O’Byrne,

What the fuck are you talking about? And how old are you? Nobody gives a shit about what you are talking about in Canada. Times have changed and long before Justin Trudeau came along. Canada isn’t much different now than it was in the late 70’s and 80’s.

The difference is that Canadians in Alberta are much more vocal now with the invention of the internet in their desire for Canada to be more like Texas.

People like you are so out of touch with reality and believe Canada to be something that it’s not. Canada is a progressive country. We made gay marriage legal here 10 years before America was even thinking about it and there are Americans that still want it overturned.

Canada does most things first before other countries, because Canada is on the right side of history. You are on the wrong side of history and not a true Canadian. You would be happier in Texas.

Andy Neimers,

Yes, I know you prefer a world where black people are slaves, women have no rights and you can proudly have the mentality of a Neanderthal.

In reality though, you can’t stop change – be it technology, science, government or society. If you think things are bad now, be grateful that you won’t be alive to see how the world will be 50 years from now.

and you Kelly weber have no idea what it means to be a true patriotic Canadian and our traditions , culture and rule of law that go back to great Britain as our founding fathers , the new turdo horse crap symbols and brain washing is to please and appease low info ,lefty brain washed people like yourself , the likes of you and turdo show you have no idea what our history stands for including fighting in two world wars in defense of great Britain , I at least served for 7 years and was proud to do so , and back then we swore allegiance to the queen and our country .also the French were defeated by the English on the plains of Abraham and have no right to rule this country under the scums called turdos and the liberal party who are the most corrupt politicians ruling this country .they ooze slime when they walk like giant slugs .

Never met a Liberal that didn’t waste money foolishly. The Liberal Red Tent is now comprised of the most un-Canadian people in the history of that party. It seems quite logical and expected that they would hold the most un-Canadian celebrations on Canada’s 150th.
