Hello there, it’s me.........again..... Don Laird...
I watched the Sun Media coverage of the 9-11 Remembrance in New York and was very pleased.
The points Ezra Levant made were quite relevant and should be made again and again in order to provoke debate and introspective thought.
The white washing of Ground Zero is obscene.
The eradication of evidence of one of the greatest crimes in the last century. What will be left for our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to look upon in order to fully understand the depth and breadth of islamic madness?
Where would we be if we had allowed bulldozers to plow under Auschwitz?
Where would we be if, on the ground that soaked up the blood of thousands of men, women and children, there stood a convenience store selling snacks, refreshments and postcards making vague saccharin references to "a really, really bad time that had something to do with something rather a long, long time ago?"
Let us speak plainly.
"In Auschwitz, Germans gassed and murdered hundreds of thousands of men, women and children. The Germans committed these monstrous crimes as part of their clearly stated goal of eradicating the entire Jewish race from the face of the earth. Complicit in these crimes, this genocide, were the German people who, largely, stood by, watched and did nothing.”
See, that wasn't so difficult, was it?
It’s what we have been doing for 8 decades and it's what we should always do.
So, let's use that same clarity of speech with respect to the events of September 11, 2001 in New York City.
"On this site, muslims, following the dictates of islam, flew two loaded passenger planes into the two towers of the World Trade Center, killing over 3,000 innocent men, women and children. It was the greatest act of islamic terrorism committed in the history of Mankind."
See? Clarity is such a simple thing to gain. For clarity, we need only be willing to speak the truth.
For far too long we have allowed social engineers and socialist Liberal political-correctness to silence debate and discourse that is based on truth and reality.
For far too long we have abdicated our responsibilities as citizens to a lunatic fringe consisting of a corrupt socialist media, treacherous academia and an arrogant, malignant and derelict government.
We have lost the power of original thought and the ability to make decisions based on our own common sense and experiences. For far too long we have allowed our opinions and determination to be swayed by polls and surveys; we have, in essence, allowed our lives to be manipulated by the very mechanisms that determine the palatability of soda-pop and potato chips.
How utterly obscene.
However, as evidenced by recent events, we are slowly waking up and part of that awakening is a desire to speak plainly, a desire not to wrap madness and psychopathy in the robes of religious propriety and entitlement.
We must regain the power of direct, frank discourse and debate that rings of truth and clarity regardless of how uncomfortable the same makes us or the objects of our criticism feel. We must not be moved from our places by the treasonous, the seditious, the criminal and the foolish.
We must regain the power of original thought.
In the last few months there have been paradigm shifts in Canadian government and media that have been nothing short of cataclysmic.
We now have a Conservative majority government that has breathed new life into the cause of common sense and the competent stewardship of a nation. It is badly needed, long overdue and greatly welcomed.
We now have media agencies, like Sunmedia, whose focus is plain speech that is inclusive of fact, truth and reality. This willingness and unswerving determination to speak the truth gives Canadians what they desire and it gives politicians a boost of confidence that their opinions and courage will be rewarded with fair play and equal time. It is badly needed, long overdue and greatly welcomed.
Evidence of that change can be found in the words and conduct of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
In a recent interview with Peter Mansbridge of the CBC, Prime Minister Harper spoke directly to the terrorist threat of islamism that has hung like a malevolent and murderous cloud over Canada and the United States of America for the past decade.
In speaking clearly and directly to the threat of islam, Prime Minister Harper acquitted himself in a most spectacular and unprecedented fashion; one of the responsibilities inherent in the role of Prime Minister of what is arguably the greatest nation in the world.
That acquittal serves two purposes:
1. to shame an American President whose love of the Muslim Brotherhood is only shadowed by his incompetence and cowardice, and
2. it will stand as an example to the rest of the political leaders in the free world of the intestinal fortitude required to eradicate islamic terrorism and threat.
In closing, to the Conservative Party, to the Canadians who had the guts to vote for the Conservatives and to Sun Media, I say thank you.
Because of you, for the first time in too many years, I am immensely proud to be Canadian.
