Between giving Omar Khadr $10.5M and throwing five service members under the bus for asking polite questions while a native protest was going on, it looks like we’re headed into a new decade of darkness for the military.
The term decade of darkness refers to the last time the Liberals were in charge because while the Canadian Forces are used to being underfunded regardless of who’s in power, at least under the Conservatives the military was respected.
Trudeau and his Liberals have little use for the military, other than as a peacekeeping tool to get a UN security council seat.
After recent events though, my guess is morale in the military will plummet.
You’ve heard of the five racist, white supremacist members of the military, and members of the group Proud Boys, who disrupted an Indigenous religious ceremony, with some even claiming they were violent while doing it. But is that the truth?
Unlike most of those commenting, I’ve watched all the videos I can find— the raw, unedited videos— and I’m still trying to figure out what these men did that was so wrong.
That hasn’t stopped military brass and our Liberal Defence Minister from denouncing these men and apologizing.
I don’t know these men so all I can go on is the evidence before me, presented not by these men but by their accusers, and I don’t see a crime or deplorable actions.
If walking into a park and engaging in respectful discussion is now a “deplorable act” then good luck getting people to sign up for the military and offering their lives.
I’m aware of the Queen’s Regulations and Orders and other aspects of military rules and laws that can curtail an active member's ability to speak freely, but I challenge everyone to watch the full, non-eventful eight minutes of video and tell me where they crossed the line.
We’re capitulating to radicals that don’t even want to recognize that Canada exists while using all the resources and benefits of the state to denounce it and strip it apart.
It has been a shameful few days for Canada’s military brass and the political leadership that guide them.
Now, I’m going to ask you to do more than complain. I want you to help save the jobs of these five service men by going to SaveTheFive.com to sign the petition and then share this video and the petition far and wide.
