Soldiers are “recruited and expended”: We need to do a better job of “remembering”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Sunday is Remembrance Day, so on last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I continued my tradition of reading Kipling’s poem, “Tommy,” but I’ve also discovered a song that talks about how our veterans are sometimes treated.


Kipling wrote that poem 128 years ago, but we see the same problems today when many of our soldiers are left wounded, without proper care, and sometimes even homeless, after being sent to far away lands on foolish missions.

We don’t seem to learn, and need to do a better job of remembering.

Watch as I show some recent examples of where we’ve come up short, like Canada sending troops to Mali.

P.S. The Rebel has a joint project with Tommy Robinson to save a PTSD centre called “Combat Stress”. VISIT SaveCombatStress.com to learn more and sign the petition.

“Our vets are treated even worse. If it wasn’t for a dozen or so veteran’s charitable organizations out vets would be destitute….”

Well PAUL TAYLOR, that’s not the case in these parts. There’s lots of working people who don’t do any where near as well as some vets do.

Shame on Macron for taking cheap political pot shots at Trump on Remembrance day just because he is behind in the polls to Le Pen. He should go sulk with his bro the Boy Blunder.

Written by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

A pox on Liberals and socialists! Those lunatic losers hate the very people who let them have the freedom to hate them. Makes me want to slap a white poppy wearer upside the head.

Hey Paul, I could think of some thing quicker than Tar and Feathers.

Soy Boy Trugrope treats our armed forces members like dogs and most times worse than dogs yet expects them to perform in perilous areas with outdated PPE, antiquated light weapons, obsolete, poorly maintained heavy equipment and very little air or artillery support.

Our vets are treated even worse. If it wasn’t for a dozen or so veteran’s charitable organizations out vets would be destitute and without equipment to at least function in society.

Yet Soy Boy Trugrope can hand out millions of dollars to Muzzies, foreign countries, foreign banks, Muzzie countries and several dictatorships.

When are Canadians going to tar and feather this ass clown?
