How did Omar Khadr become a folk hero for Canada's Left?

Marissa SemkiwArchive

The Toronto Sun's Anthony Furey and I try to figure out how an admitted murderer came to be a hero to Canada's "progressives."

What do you think?

Guy: “Omar was arrested under Chretien’s Reign!” True, and notice the Socialist Media never went after the Liberals on this subject as they have done with the current Conservative Gov’t. Their bias is blatantly showing. Dosen’t exactly paint the Liberals in a good light either. Trudope certainly hasn’t changed the tone with his “admiration for communist dictatorships” proclamation. And Tom and the dippers are members of socialist/communist international. ’Nuff said.

Omar was arrested under Chretien’s Reign! Why Blame Harper unless you suffer from Harper Derangement Syndrome!

And how did Omar become a hero to Canada’s “progressives”? Answer: Socialist stupidity and a desire to do anything they can to thwart the current Conservative Gov’t in Ottawa. By all means possible with absolutely no thought to the end result. Like cutting off your nose to spite your face. Same twisted thinking. I was going to say “twisted logic”, but there is NO logic there.

A defamation suit against Edney is a great idea if it works. Little chance of success however with our Liberal appointed judiciary. Hiring some mercenaries and putting out a “hit” on Edney and his protege’ would ultimately be more effective, not to mention a permanent solution. Alternately, we could stuff them into a shipping container bound for Saudi Arabia. Somehow, I suspect that at least Mr. Edney would make it back to continue his troublemaking. Omar? He might just “disappear” into the Muslim Community overseas. That may be worth it.

If the PM wants to sue Edney for defamation of character, that’s one taxpayer bill I’d have no problem with.

A fifteen year old terrorist is a terrorist. Why is he still alive? The lawyer is a piece of work.

Mr. Edney is so full of it, and I don’t mean in a good way. What a bitter biased man!

I blame Disney and Hollywood. Canadians grow up thinking every bad guy is really just a good guy that needs a break. They don’t understand guile.

I wish Dennis Edney would change career paths and become an army medic.

Another shining example of Canada’s communist/ socialist / marxist / liberal PIGS aligning with islamic terrorists again.
Why? Because Canada’s communists/ socialists / marxists / liberals don’t like Freedom Of Speech and don’t like those who love their own religion, like say Christianity.
And scum islamic terrorists like khadr make for great pawns for Canada’s communist/ socialists / marxist / liberal PIGS.

Why so quiet baked troodo?

If you want to see a litany of prog heroes look at the black hats in the movies – Khadr? – no different than the progs who root for the villain at the movies – they are so desperate to appear “different” they will support the guy who attacks them – totally dyslexic.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if Omar the killer went to the appeal court and lost but charges of premeditated murder charges were levied. Justiced denied is justice delayed 25 years before bail. But it’s not going to happen. The least we can hope for is he would not be granted a Canadian pass port

Peter Toth you hit the nail on the head. It is undoing the leftist commandeering of our legal system that is project number one.

It’s quite simple if you believe that the looney lefties suffer from a brain disorder. Insanity means doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome every time. They cannot get it that socialism does not work!; tt never has!! Just ask the people of Greece, France, Spain, Italy, Ireland, England, etc how it’s working out for them after they ran out of other people’s money and now have to pay their own way.
Just wait and watch when the Chinese start buying up the Southern European agricultural lands and divert 1/3 of the production back to China. The food shortages should be enough to drive the point home.
But, being mentally deficient, the lefties won’t be able to connect the dots let alone see the dots.

Decades of Liberals in charge have created a Canada where this has been allowed to happen. It’s why the far left are so determined to fight against the Conservatives. They know that over time, that left wing influence in our courts will disappear. It’s why we need a Conservative majority for the next several terms. To reverse the socialist engineering that has slithered into our legal system.
