Media, opposition exploit child's death to attack Harper -- ignoring Tories' humanitarian, military response to ISIS

Brian LilleyArchive

People around the world have been moved by the photo of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi, whose body washed up on a Turkish beach. The migrant child died, along with this brother and mother, when their boat capsized.

Reports, now proven false, claimed Abdula Kurdi's sister in Vancouver had applied to bring them to Canada and that application was denied.

Regardless, the Media Party and the opposition is cynically exploiting this tragedy as a way to attack Stephen Harper. Mulcair's statement that Canada is "doing nothing" is extraordinary, since he wants to halt airstrikes against ISIS -- the terrorists who created the crisis.

Justin Trudeau's remarks weren't any better, saying Canada isn't what it used to be. I give the Liberal leader a lesson in his own party's history in response, and lists all the humanitarian aid Canada has directed to Syria.

Finally, a reminder that refugees don't just need help from government. All of us can step up as part of our communities to assist them as well.

When you want to become a refugee, the life of a refugee is not rosie! Being a refugees are not a pretty site. But Canada Immigration Laws did not cause the young boy to wash up on the shore. When I saw that refugee mother trying to attack Canada’s Immigration Laws, I could have put her on the next plane back to her native country. If you don’t like what happens once you get here, shut up and be satisfied or move back to your native land. I’m tired of disenchanted refugees. It takes time to get all the refugee families together. But don’t get bitchie and try to blame everyone but yourself. The NDP and child-like, Trudeau, have to grow up. As long as they are trashing the conservatives, that is ALL their really care.

The Left Wing Media Party know, both Trudeau and Mulclair are relying, heavily on the Muslim vote, to get anywhere in the next Election. They will say anything to achieve this goal. Half of them are probably Muslims, anyway. The head of Religious Programming at the BBC, UK, is a Muslim. Who knows what lurks around inside our Left Wing Media propaganda machine.

Well Bravo, I would be more specific and say “Typical leftist Canadian”

Well said Cathy Rochford!

Typical Canadian – no sense, no reality and no brains.

Time some of them actually visited the mid east and stopped reading cbc and ctv

This report is more the truth than the slandering ndp and liberal parties trying to get votes by putting down Harper. Why can’t these two parties say something positive about their own parties instead of running the conservatives into the ground? My guess is because they don’t have much to offer. The image of that little refugee boy’s lifeless body washed up on shore was very emotionally disturbing. Canada is doing what it can to help with these isis infested nations. I blame the muslims and others in the middle east countries in positions of power and wealth who are doing absolutely nothing to stop isis and the violent massacre. I also blame the un for standing by and allowing all the violence in the middle east. Maybe the rest of the countries over in that part of the world should step up the fight against isis and all terrorism. The liberals and ndp’s trying to make this Canada’s fault is entirely foolish.
commented 2015-09-04 23:17:10 -0400
Too complex an issue for this kind of dialogue. Your “something positive” has merit, but not without carefully considered exceptions. End of discussion.
commented 2015-09-04 22:22:55 -0400
I don’t know who you are Gordon, perhaps you know my father (who has the same name). There is something positive I can contribute, stay the hell out of foreign conflicts, don’t fund Islamists, no more refugees. That’s all I ask. If they do that, they got my vote. Until then, not another nickel from my pocket will be used to stir the pot overseas. Kill the ISIS goons you released, apologize to Assad, send the “refugees” back to Syria. That’s it. That’s all.
commented 2015-09-04 22:06:03 -0400
If Richard Vanderlubbe is the one I knew years ago, he had me fooled. I didn’t see him then as such an arrogant and self-righteous fool with nothing positive to contribute in the face of a serious challenge!
commented 2015-09-04 21:57:10 -0400
Well put Brian! It is so obvious and so simple. Only ideologues and power-hungry demagogues would attack our government on their outstanding support for the people of Syria and Iraq!
commented 2015-09-04 21:30:44 -0400
The entire idea of Assad being “oppressive” comes from the State Department/George Soros “Arab Spring” that saw CIA foment Sunni riots and protests in Egypt, Libya, Syria. That put the Muslim Brotherhood in charge in Egypt, threw Libya into a state of chaos, led to the execution of tens of thousands of Christians in Syria.

That’s what you base “the brutal Assad” on… Him resisting George Soros’ “Arab Spring” coup that turned out so well for Egypt.

The next time Obama or Hillary or Biden wanna give money and RPGs to Islamists, and Canada helps, my money won’t be in the pot. I’m out. Not paying for this shit anymore. You people can go to hell.
commented 2015-09-04 20:49:30 -0400

See the worst part for me, is that I warned MP David Sweet, who I had voted for… And he laughed in my face, told me that “the opposition” needed to be funded to take out Assad, even after I told him Christians were gonna die.

So there you have it. The federal government, and all three opposition parties, and the media, all said this was “the Canadian thing to do”…. When others were speaking up about this… Calling a spade a spade, showing them photos of the black-flag of Al-Qaeda being flown by these “Syrian rebels”.

I have spent years recoiling in horror at the videos of Christians being executed by your “Syrian rebels”… Knowing that my elected official supported it. I think I’m just gonna leave this site and not come back, I’m tired of being asked to prove the obvious. You pulled “Assad’s a dictator” out of your ass, funded terrorists, they killed Christians, now you’re playing stupid. I ain’t stupid. I’m not falling for this shit.
commented 2015-09-04 20:22:03 -0400
There is no “Christian genocide these people funded with my tax dollars”. That’s a load of shit!

Prove your remarks Richard. PROVE IT Put up or shut up.
commented 2015-09-04 20:20:27 -0400
Richard, you need to get your “facts” straight, because either you are believing in a pack of lies or you are creating them. Either way what you have posted is load of horse fecal matter.
commented 2015-09-04 20:11:38 -0400
I need anger management? What you mean a government-ordered counciling to better “socialize” me because I disagree with the Christian genocide these people funded with my tax dollars? Sounds an awful lot like leftism, yet again. Think how we want you to, otherwise you might be in need of some “re-education”. All four parties, and the media, all you clowns are followers… No rebels in that crowd.

“On behalf of all Canadians, Laureen and I offer our sincere condolences to the family of King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz and the people of Saudi Arabia.” -Stephen Harper

Also said Abdullah was a “strong proponent of peace in the Middle East” as he directed Sunni militants to overthrow Assad.

So no, Harper DID kiss the ass of Abdullah, as do the left.

Next, we come to the “immigrants”. Sure, some immigrants have money, but these “refugees” do not. Don’t bullshit with me, I am four years past being in the mood to be bullshitted around by excuse artists.

“Free trade agreeements” like NAFTA have allowed corporate welfare for Toyota as they threaten to send Canadian jobs to Mexico. Trans Pacific Partnership is nothing more than a Agenda 21 proxy, implements carbon trading schemes, restricts a number of human activities.

I’ll disrespect your foreign inbred tyrant monarch all I want. I am born on this Land, whereas, your crusty old tyrant who fails to uphold the British North America Act is not.

Ain’t nowhere to deport me to, I was born on the Niagara Escarpment. It is YOUR political parties that are more interested in foreign lands than this country here, they can go to Syria and fight, you too, if you’re so interested.

Don’t you tell me to shut my mouth when your parliament pals put their hands out for my money. You people ain’t getting another dollar outta me, you’ve lost my trust and disobeyed God’s Law via aloof “legal” bullshit.

RICHARD VANDERLUBBE commented 2 hours ago

After reading that post I can definitely say you need counselling. Anger management.
commented 2015-09-04 19:32:25 -0400
@richard Vanderlubbe….
You say… “We gotta get ISIS”, “ISIS is the biggest threat since Hitler”… Well guess who created them you clowns. "….Canada did not create ISIS! The country to the South did….Obama is the man to blame for ISIS! He is the one who is giving these terrorists Military ordinance, a heads up when air strikes are coming and helping the Saudi’s who fund terrorist organizations around the world! Harper did not kiss Saudi Ass as you put it so bluntly! Harper did not bow down to the Saudi Prince like Obama has been known to do! I suggest you quit watching American/Canadian media channels and thinking they are showing you the truth about anything. You seem to be quite muddled about who did what.

As for “Muslim Parasites” coming to Canada….. Most of the immigrants who come to Canada actually have monies they bring with them to live on for the first little bit till they can find jobs. Many of the muslims that Canada has brought in , in recent years have actually been muslim orphaned children from Syria…mainly girls, who are being adopted into Canadian families. These families are not all muslim either! Most of them are Christian and even Jewish families. Assad asked Harper to help keep these children safe so they would not get into the hands of the Rebels and be sold at auction.

You are such a moron….Free trade agreements actually help Canada. It is our merchandise that is being sold to other countries….. BTW….. Harper doesn’t do trade deals where Canada sells less than what we will buy from another country! Free trade Deals are helping our country’s economy, by keeping Canadians working!

If you really can’t stand how Harper is running Canada, our symbolic Monarch nor our Democracy….. the door swings both ways, Don’t let it hit your ass as you are going out! MOVE to some other country…. I suggest America or one of the Islamic states…. I’m sure you will much happier there and we will have one less clueless dipstick to have to endure!

Yet another instance of the Socialist Media and lefties fabricating a story with faux outrage to advance their political agenda! The hypocrisy from the left on this issue is so thick, one could cut it with a knife and still not reduce the festering mess! Imagine the world today if Trudope or Tommie the Commie were in charge during the middle of last century when Hitler’s Nazis were running rampant in Europe. Assuredly, it would be a much different and definitely a less free world. Come to think of it, the Lieberals were in charge during WWII. And what did they do with their enhanced compassionate policies? Yeah, they sent a ship full of Jews back to Europe to be exterminated in Nazi death camps! One is too many is what they said to justify their actions. So much for compassion from the left!
commented 2015-09-04 19:10:26 -0400
Yeah, chill out Richard, don’t you like it when your taxes fund the execution of Christians??? I guess you’re not a “real” Canadian, Rich.
commented 2015-09-04 19:08:12 -0400
Richard, are you having a good day?
commented 2015-09-04 18:58:25 -0400
I don’t need anger management, I need a REAL right-wing party that obeys the Constitution and Canadian Bill of Rights. Foreign destabilization operations are NOT “conservative”.

Rather than cast a vote, I’m gonna stop paying taxes. I will not fund terrorism and pretend it’s a “conservative” or “democratic” thing to do. I will not pay for Muslim parasites to come here and bleed us dry for a pre-planned Cloward & Piven strategy. Fuck your “democracy”. Fuck your nazi-saluting “queen” and “royals”. Fuck your devalued currency and your “free trade” agreements.

This is exactly why my ancestors left Europe and came here. Got tired of this anti-liberty garbage and I ain’t gonna keep my mouth shut no more. You want your taxes from me to fund terrorists in the Middle East??? COME AND FUCKING TAKE IT. COME AND FUCKING TRY.

PETER NETTERVILLE, “Atheists are not interested in just being atheists, they want to expunge all religious beliefs from the planet”. Not true about wanting to expunge all religions. Common for atheists like BARRY LUSK to arrive on the scene with their tiresome rant against “religion” and that it should be stamped out; expunged from the public forum. Of course, not their deeply-ingrained “religion” of humanism or atheism, whereby man is the measure of all things; man is the authority, determines truth, and sets the rules – in other words, man is basically his own god! For BARRY LUSK and his ilk, Godlessness is Religion”:

Richard, I think you need anger management counseling. You have eliminated both "sides, the left and the right. So, I assume voting is out of the question for you. What is your option?

Nothing is too low for the MSM in Canada today. Any excuse to put conservatives in a bad light. Despicable.
commented 2015-09-04 17:41:24 -0400
Is it “Conservative” to start foreign wars of aggression when your national debt is $600 billion? Is it “Conservative” to fund Islamic extremist mercenaries ten short years after 9/11??

I don’t know how you goofs can keep a straight face. The left is obviously a bunch of liars and tyrants, but you fake conservatives are actually worse, because you pose as the alternative, when in reality, you’re cut from the same big-government, empirical cloth.
