NFU and Idle No More “hijack” Canada Day

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The National Farmers Union supports Idle No More’s plans to hijack Canada’s birthday.

INM says they're going to “unsettle” Canada Day celebrations to fight colonialism and they’ll have the support of the fake farmers at the National Farmers Union when they do it. 

The NFU said,  “We know as farmers that we need to be having difficult conversations about how we have come to the land on which we are farming....We need to figure out how to move forward together, given that non-Indigenous farmers have benefitted from access to lands acquired through deceitful, coercive or violent means.”

Coercion?  Violence? How many of these fake farmers, if they even own land have given their land back to first nations? If the answer is none, I don't want to hear from them saying my farm was obtained through violence and coercion.

In reality, the National Farmers Union has very little to do with farmers. It’s a left-wing activist group that wrings their hands in support of such things as radical feminism, climate change, the Leap Manifesto, and refugees - all the SJW things urbanites might think farmers talk about down at the farm supply store.

I have a real problem with activist groups and their hangers-on who want us to feel bad about Canada even existing. Strangely, that's their solution to very real problems Aboriginals face: making people feel unfairly guilty. 

I refuse to feel guilty for owning land and working hard to take care of it. And these fake farmers, who don’t even actually have to be farmers, don't get to speak for me this Canada Day or ever.

Instead, I’ll celebrate Canada and the accomplishments of Canadian farmers who feed the world.

“Indigenous farmers have benefitted from access to lands acquired through deceitful, coercive or violent means.” This is a very untrue statement. The treaties were willingly and happily signed by well-informed Indian Chiefs who discussed, in their languages, the terms of the treaties with the Crown representative. No force, other than the Riel Rebellion in Saskatchewan, was ever used nor were threats ever made. The Chiefs needed the treaties for their people. Try reading the 50 essays displayed on www.nodifference.ca written by lawyer Peter Best of Sudbury, Ontario who attended school with Indians in Espanola during the 1950’s and 1960’s. These essays are “An Argument for the Abolition of the Indian Reserve System and Special Race-based Laws and Entitlements for Canada’s Indians” . The reserve system and special laws make Canada an apartheid country like South Africa used to be. Indians on reserves have a much higher rate of violence against men and women, higher youth suicide rates, rampant alcohol and drug abuse, poverty, poorer schooling and medical service and the system of government is ripe for financial fraud with few checks and balances. Despite spending millions and millions of dollars to improve Indian reserves little has improved over the years. Throwing more money at the situation is fine for Indian Industry people (Indians and whites who consult for Indian bands) but has not helped the people. The system should end and our Indian brothers should be brought into our society as equals…not as equal but not equals as were the blacks in the USA after the civil war and well into the 1960’s. If you care about Canadian Indians please give www.nodifference.ca a complete and careful read…beware Peter is a lawyer, intelligent, wordy and has written 378 pages!

Canada’s farm organizations are a cruel joke. Step by step they are selling their members down the river.

But the memberships tolerates it. You can’t fix stupid, and you can’t create backbones.

Wow, Sheila, that’s just shameful. I truly believed that you had to be a farmer to be in the NFU. But of course, leftist urbanites hunting to cause chaos, would infiltrate an organization that’s based on integrity and honesty that a lot of farm folks seem to have a full complement of. There is no place, these days, that is safe from lazy marxists spending time with crap disturbing, civil disobedience. Canada has become a place that I don’t recognize in such a short time.

So that’s it then, Canadians have been screwed, blued and tattooed!
Wynne with a 2nd term and with a majority, and who now sits at about 10% popularity, I bet…
Notley with the NDP in Alberta and sitting at less than 25% popularity – yeah right…
Trudeau with a majority – sure…according to his sycophantic media fawners.
And now, to prove that all elections in Canada today are fixed in favour of the Globalist’s agenda, all of a sudden – somehow – we have a NDP government in BC? Uh huh…
I call BULLSHIT on this whole corrupt system.
I call BULLSHIT on what was once my country.
Time to ‘deal with’ the enemy and take back what is ours – or get down on your knees and stay there…

@ Maurice Potvin commented 4 mins
Now the fun begins!! This involves way too many red-neck tax payers to go smoothly!

I just got the latest news out of Victoria. BC is screwed!! The Lieutenant-Governor has seen to that!! Christie Clark asked her to dissolve Parliament but instead she asked the NDP-Green coalition to form the next government. Can’t anybody in any position of authority see what’s happening in Alberta???? Hopefully this coalition will fall quickly, but in the mean time, like I say, we’re screwed!!

YUP! If you so-called "natives don’t think you’re not getting FED enough – go FYS! We are done feeding you lazy f**kers! Even my Native friends say the same thing _ so GDFYS!

Dan… It would be easier to separate the provinces from the insanity rather than the insanity from the Country.

This NFU is gonna get their nuts kicked very hard!!! …too stupid to recognize their own stupidity!

I say let them. Let everyone see what a joke our country is becoming. And by the way , natives have eaten food grown or raised by farmers for a long time.

Great report Sheila.
You know how today so many Canadians are talking about separation as a last ditch, desperation move to survive Justin and his master’s Jihahi/Globalist agenda and the destruction of the sovereign state of our country, Canada?
Well I say fu…forget that BS, round up all the freaks, flakes commies, terrorists and all the rest of those lefty useful idiots and turf them all out of Canada…then start over. We’ll separate the problem from the country.
These freaks generally reside on the left, so compared to us normal folks, there’s not that many of them, they’re just loud.
I say get ’em before they get us!

SHEILA , you must do more reports on nfu
A lot of us peasants have probably heard of them , but had no idea that in reality they are fake farmer communists
Totally expose them

nfu — wow , I can imagine the words to be used to fill that in

I’ve given up on accommodating people this badly deluded in their own angers and self pity. They seem to be stuck in some lower level of consciousness and are resistant to rational self evident truths. How do you reach people who revel in wallowing in anger self pity and envy?

Frankly life is too short to waste time with unevolved Marxists who are constantly scheming how to get what we have with no work, effort or merit.

I hope Ezra reposts his old Idle No More coverage.

wayne easter…a lieberal mp from p.e.i….a former head of the nfu…said that western farmers had to sell their grain thru the (western)canadian wheat board…or else…mr easter …living and supposedly farming in p.e.i….has never had to sell his grain thru the wheat board…since then we have viewed pronouncements from the nfu as…tripe…

Well there’s yet another event I’ll be promoting a Boycott to!!

Great report Sheila!
I refuse to feel guilty either.
All the farmers I know paid for their land… no coercion, no violence! Fake farmers go away!
