Re: Galloway Won't Go AwayMay 8th, 2009
darkbeaver, if you're really that concerned about free speech, then you should be more concerned about a segment of Canadians always having to watch what they say for fear that the simplest ambiguous comment will have them locked away, than what a non-national can or cannot say in Canada.
I think that if the courts reject Galloway's claims, then they are in fact acknowledging that anyway who gives aid to the Palestinians in Gaza through Hamas (which is how a lot of aid there is processed) is a financial supporter of "terrorism". This could open up the possibility of many Canadians being prosecuted by whomever simply for giving money to aid charities working in Gaza (that do have to go through Hamas). It would also illuminate Canada's stance on the Palestinians for good; not only would Parliament be against them, but so would the federal Canadian judicial system would be as well. This would obiously tilt Canada from being a "neutral" observer and commentator on the situation in Palestine to being one that is, without shame, pro-Israel. Therefore Canada should expect the same treatment that the US gets from Palestinians as a whole, if the courts rule against Galloway.
Canadas policy on the Palestinians is imposed by international consensus that means it's Israeli policy. Palestinians, Iraqis, Afghanis Pakistanis, Hatians, Congolese, Sudanese Canadas list of betrayed nations is just as long as that of the coalition of dogs. Children will spit on our flag someday and we will be remembered as simple minded cowards. Canadas rich and powerful long ago decided to join the internationalist movement and rape the planet and its people without mercy.
The tilt already happened about twenty years ago, we just kept lying to ourselves as we wallowed in our past supposed glories and allowed facsist rule to creep in under deregulation. We have no shame now and our children are born into a lie and our elders die in discrace. What can I tell you, I think the world is in for a very hard couple of decades of destruction and war, I wish everybody good luck, except the bankers of course who should be forever unemployed.
Canada no longer exists, sure there's a flag and some soil and some trees and hockey but the rest is horse****.
