Dear Mr. Editor:
There is not an hourly newscast goes by without the stating of the word “terrorist(s)” in our “brave new world.”
Canadian politicians “bought into” this frenzy and dragged the country with them in, too (whatever the script is). The incompetence and insanity of the government is manifested by “punishing the innocents because of a few bad ones.”
The Nazis used this kind of tactics in World War Two. Can’t catch the culprits, therefore punish everyone else.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Canada–as other nations–is part of the “United Nations” and abides by “UN” regulations/resolutions, etc. Supposedly.
The “UN” has its own dictionary of languages that every translator uses to translate the script of the “speaker” to the corresponding language. In these “UN” dictionaries, the word “terrorist” doesn’t appear, so when a “speaker” uses the word “terrorist,” it is a “pause” in the translation or a “space” in the script.
Why is that? The answer is very simple: “One man’s terrorist is another man’s hero.”
You don’t have to look very far to accept this fact and here is one example from Canadian history. Louis Riel was a “terrorist” in the eyes of the British but he was a “hero” in the eyes of the Métis.
The present Canadian prime minister, with about 20-23 percent of the vote in the last election (talk about a minority government), managed to drag Canada down from a “peacekeeper, neutral, loved” country into an “errorist” country.
Some of the consequences of this polarization are the body bags that started to show up and children growing up without fathers.
Of course, the present prime minister of Canada is responsible for the deaths of the Canadian soldiers who died. They were sacrificed to the oil magnate “gods” on their altar of oil wells and pipelines.
Is Canada goose-stepping on the “errorist” road? According to the “UN,” there is no such thing as a “terrorist!” Does Canada follow “UN” rules and examples? If not, what is the point to be a member? What is next? “Hail Hxxxer”?
