New decade of darkness for Canada’s military: Halifax 5 betrayed, Omar Khadr rewarded

Brian LilleyArchive
 

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.

Not anymore.

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.

Below is some of what Richard Blackwolf, head of Canada’s national Indigenous veterans organization had to say in this CBC interview: http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/indigenous-veterans-group-proud-boys-1.4191749

1. The whole military has become politicized, we’re living in a politically correct era.
2. Hopefully, it won’t affect their overall careers. I mean they just showed up there with a flag. They didn’t beat up on anybody, it’s not like that.
3. The activists assembled at the statue of Edward Cornwallis in Halifax are “point one percenters” who do not adequately represent the country’s Indigenous Peoples".
4. I saw several races down there [at the statue], it’s just a hodgepodge of activists, they’re not productive people at all.
5. Demonstrations like this one simply give Indigenous people a bad name.

Again, I have approached the Rebel with historical information regarding the Liberal Party and their traitorous history beginning in the 1930’s and they appear to have absolutely no interest.

Either with intent OR by the deception of those he sought, O.D. Skelton created Canada’s permanent bureaucracy. Several of the men he chose to run Canada’s government were either Communist sympathizers or outright Soviet moles. From Dr. Norman Robertson to E. Herbert Norman.

The impact this had on ALL aspects of our government is beyond belief. From Canada’s decision to go to war in 1939, who was to be rounded up under Section 21, dealing with Communist espionage, directly supporting Soviet and Communist forces in Eastern Europe, immediate post war reactions to Communist takeovers and the obvious impact on Canada’s foreign policy. This from our involvement in the UN and NATO to recognizing Communist China OVER Nationalist China. There is also evidence emerging that Lester Pearson’s praised UN action in Suez was a front to give Nasser respite while he made a secret arms deal with the USSR (via Czech) so that he could arm his forces to attack Israel. Canada’s ambassador to Egypt at the time was a Soviet mole E. Herbert Norman. This according to one of the Cambridge Five.

So why the Rebel and other media outlets or publishers are not interested in this information is shocking. It literally rewrites Canadian history post 1920 to 1990.

I have uncovered proof that Canada’s Liberal permanent bureaucracy had strong ties to the Communist Party of Canada and during WW2 led a secret Communist recruiting scheme in Canada. To see this information please visit my website at

www.airbornehistorycanada.com

and look under sub-heading

Tigers, Partisans and Guerrillas

It covers the truth behind the set up of Camp X during WW2 and those within Canada’s permanent bureaucracy that were involved. ALL would be investigated by the RCMP beginning in the 1950’s for links to the Soviet Union. The information within these investigations was CLOSED by Lester Pearson appointee Pierre Elliott Trudeau.

If the Rebel truly represents the Canadian people, it needs to start a campaign to get the Ministry of justice and CSIS to release ALL of this information.

Hi Doug Laird
I had a quick perusal of the DND and CAF Code of Values and Guidelines.
Among other things forces members have a duty to respect the dignity of all other persons and to act with integrity. I don’t think triggering SJW’s by simply attending a protest with a Canadian Ensign, in Canada on Canada Day really qualifies as a breach of ethics.
commented 2017-07-07 07:09:34 -0400
Oh yeah, to the five servicemen, thank you for your service.
commented 2017-07-07 06:54:02 -0400
I would very much appreciate a detailed explanation from the military leadership why they felt an apology to the protestors was warranted. If they consider carrying the Canadian Ensign in any way, shape or form a deplorable or racist act then I consider them to be a disgrace to the uniform.
commented 2017-07-07 00:32:49 -0400
Keith & Helen Harvey, I just read your post, very powerful & to the point.
The M of J & the Genera arel up in arms, won’t tolerate this, oh really, won’t tolerate what, walking through a public park on Canada Day holding a Canadian flag, not stirring up anything, but they’ll tolerate Canadian slander, disrespect, trying to be a s….disturber, that they’ll tolerate & defend, well like you said, I sure don’t feel very safe here anymore if that’s what we’re getting from those in charge of our security. I was taught to be a good citizen, obey the laws, work hard, respect your elders, instead it has become the opposite, disprespect your homeland, disobey the law, create a disturbance & you will be protected for doing it. Let’s not forget to be a terrorist, that’s even better because then we will not only apologize to you nationally, but we will reward you with millions for doing so. Is anyone sane in the Liberal gov’t nowadays, perhaps the one or ones who disagree with Trudeau or has a bone to pick with him, decided to leak out the info.

commented 2017-07-07 00:14:29 -0400
I should probably start with “language warning” because I am pissed enough at virtually everyone involved in this that I am not sure I can get that across without a few F-bombs.

First, let me address the hypocritical irony I see in the protest itself, just because I think it’s funny. If “Chief” Grizzly Mama is really Native, she’s the only Native there until the Proud Boys arrive with two Metis in their numbers – and I’m with Ezra on this part, I think she’s a white SJW. They are there under the guise of an “indigenous ritual” (and the Complete Bull Crap network can stick that interpretation somewhere warm and brown if they can get their heads out of the way – it’s a blatant anti-Canadian protest to further their current campaign to have the Cornwallis name removed from streets, parks and buildings and have the statue taken down. Equally to the Confederate symbols being attacked in the South in recent months, they are denying history, which unfortunately frequently includes lessons of what not to do – but I digress, I’ll save that part of my rant for another day.) I would be willing to wager that every one of those clowns in that protest are among the first to scream “cultural appropriation” at the drop of a hat, but here they are co-opting Native rites as a tool in their fight. If every one of them would stop and think about that for a moment, the irony of their hypocrisy would be like a hammer to the forehead if they had one neuron of critical thinking skills.

Second, the MSM and their misrepresentations and outright lies about these guys, the Proud Boys, and conservatives in general have royally pissed me off – but that is a nearly daily occurrence and needs no further rant here.

Third, Sajjan, Newton, and Vance have royally pissed me off as well. The speed with which they issued statements would indicate that they were too eager to rush to the PC bandwagon to wait for any investigation, and I have to wonder if any of them even took the time to watch all the video instead of just the snippets on MSM. And the statements themselves have created a bias they cannot get away from. To publicly announce that the careers of these men is in jeopardy was wanton foolishness in their rush to virtue signal. “We are investigating, and a statement will be forthcoming later this week” is all that should have been said at the time. Now, they may have painted themselves into a corner where they have to drive the bus they threw these guys under. I fear that these men now face courts martial with pre-determined outcomes, or, worse, summary judgement. I could go on, but a line from a comment below says it best. “KEITH AND HELEN HARVEY commented 3 hours ago …. Our Military is Commanded by people that are so Politically Correct that they will Gleefully Lick the Shit Covered End of the Stick to demonstrate, that they are not Racist.”

BUT
Fourth, and where I must respectfully disagree with virtually everyone here, I am supremely disappointed with and pissed at these five members of the armed forces; and the four active duty CF personnel, close personal friends all and all in non-commissioned ranks, that I called to discuss it with agree with me (each one of them used the word “embarrassment” at some point when discussing these guys.) While I agree with Brian Lilley that they did not contravene the Queen’s Orders (unless you apply some twisted liberal misinterpretation to several minor clauses such as 19.14), the guidelines of the Statement of Defense Ethics, and the Ethos, Ethics, and Culture guidelines were not adhered to. This is no accidental encounter while walking through the park, they knew what they were doing. These guys aren’t stupid – you can tell that from what is audible on the videos – so they had to know that what they were doing would be provocative to a group of crazed SJW loons, and at the very least intentionally ignored the optics of what they were doing. I believe punishment is in order, and a good dressing down and a reprimand on their record would be very appropriate.

OK, rant over, Laird out

So far, this is still a free country & we are free to walk in a public park, but according to some natives, they own the entire country, this is their land & they want it back,how many times do we have to listen to this. Yes, treaties were signed & not adhered to & I regret that & for those past injustices, we have handed over billions & continue to do so (with very little improvement on some of those reserves) to the native communities, their leaders, many of whom have misused those funds to enrich themselves instead of using it for what it was intended for, their people. This has been going on for decades & misinformed members who should be confronting those leaders, continue to blame us the “white man, whitelady” instead for all their woes, poor housing (I don’t know any white man/ lady getting free new housing, it always starts as new at some point), murdered women, glue sniffing, suicides, abuse, their children taken away by Child Services. There is no doubt that in certain cases the “white man/lady” have taken advantage in some situations, but isn’t it time for the native communities to take responsibility & own up & look at their own behaviour instead of always blaming us for everything. There are many many natives who have educated themselves & they are represented in many fields, I say kudos to them & this goes for anyone, white, black, orange, purple, whatever, if you want to work hard & make something of yourself I am right behind you & encouraging you.
Now for the Proud Boys, I saw absolutely nothing wrong with their behaviour, they were calm, polite not disrespectful in any way or confrontational & had every right to be in that park, carrying their flag, the Minister of Defense & General Vance are using a double standard & in this instance I would dare say maybe even racist.

The payout to Omar Khadr and his legal team was given on Wednesday and cashed immediately. The Feds have colluded with the terrorist and his lawyer to keep the money! Truly despicable. I feel so much disgust, anger, and shame – Speer’s widow and the maimed soldier will not see one penny of this deplorable deal with a convicted terrorist. Article calls him a child soldier and gives apologist type explanations.

Can any of the trolls or even the apologists from the MSM show me where the supreme court said Lhadr should get 10 million? There excuse is that our pathetic liberal Supremes ordered this, but i never saw a dollar value from them. And tell me if he is just an innocent pawn of his family then why are they not having to pay him anything? And for all the left wing idiots, he was not a child soldier , a soldier wears a uniform and there is no international law saying they could not imprison him. And he has no ties to Afghanistan , neither of his parents were born there. And the Taliban invaded Afghanistan , we were there to liberate, he sided with the invaders.

I saw the film footage, I saw those young men carrying a legitimate Canadian flag, one that I have carried, it has flown where and when our military has served in past missions representing Canada. I saw those men peacefully walking through the park and they were threatened by the protesters both in language and attitude. I did not see any of those five men respond in kind, they did not threaten anyone, they did not shout or curse at anyone. But those protesters did their best to initiate a confrontation. Our Defence Minister and those Military Brass are a group of Spineless, Ball Less, Brainless, Ass Licking Pussy Willows. I don’t feel any sense of security or safety knowing these people are in the authority positions that they are. Our Military is Commanded by people that are so Politically Correct that they will Gleefully Lick the Shit Covered End of the Stick to demonstrate, that they are not Racist. And will even condemn and administer punishment to their own subordinates in support of protesters that demonstrated Anti Canadian Sentiment. I wonder if they would go as far as Bending Over and taking a Bumfuck in support of the Liberal Anti White, Anti Christian, Anti Civilization Agenda. Oh! Maybe they already have, that’s why this all came so natural to them.

Demoralizing the military and turning off future soldiers is destructive and disgusting. I’m Mi’kmaq and have always welcomed our new friends as they are the best in the world. We as a people are enriched by their presence. With them in our history, we have been blessed. This is no way to thank those who have taught and given us so much. Pride that is foolish only serves to hurt us. March on Proud boys!

Why serve in the military now? The scumbags that are running this country and the military will send you in islamic countries to get killed, while bringing other islamic terrorists in Canada at the same time and even paid them tens of millions for killing you. Guys, protect your life. A time will come when we will need you here to defend the real canadians. Those wars abroad are manufactured by globalists who despise you.

The flag carried by the Proud Boys is actually not the flag that was flown “until 1965.”
The three green maple leaves in the arms indicate that it is the 1921-57 version of the Canadian Red Ensign which was Canada’s flag from the time my grandparents were children until a few months after I was born. This time period includes the Second World War and the Korean conflict. The 1957-65 version of the Canadian Red Ensign has red maple leaves and a non-anatomically-correct version of the Irish harp in the arms.
Pardon my nit-picking, but somebody has to do it.
commented 2017-07-06 19:21:21 -0400
I watched the footage and cannot see any reason why these men should lose their job or be chastised for what took place in that park. The fake chief should be chastised. This was a political protest and not an indigenous ceremony. I believe the military handled this poorly and owe the members of the Canadian military a public apology. The automatic reflex to hold press conferences and send Twitter messages before having all the information is beyond careless. You know what would be refreshing, a spokesperson who says, “a statement will be forthcoming; I need to investigate what happened before I can comment. I am in the process of gathering information.”

Head of Canada’s Indigenous veterans group hopes Proud Boys don’t lose their CAF jobs

I heard one of the Proud Boys say " we don’t have to apologize for being White." It seems every color wants us to get on our knees and apologize to them while we pay their way through our taxes.
Think of it, the red-skins, the Blacks , Harper had to apologize to the East Indians for turning them away 90 years ago. But now we have another bunch that Trudeau wants us to give up everything for; I will never apologize to these Browns; I’d rather one of us died.

I wonder if those five even want to continue serving after this, or if their section comrades do.

Just imagine Canada’s next action run by the so-called officers. Their logistics will be how to apologize to the enemy as quickly as possible for offending their feelings.

Canadian Military = Swedish Military.
