Published

During celebrations leading up to Remembrance Day, Canadian ice hockey commentator Don Cherry made remarks on live television questioning immigrants’ dedication to Canadian values.

He specifically saw a stark contrast between people’s celebration of Remembrance Day in rural Canada compared to urban Canada.

After noticing how so few people in downtown Toronto wore poppies—artificial flowers that are sold to raise money for Canadian veterans — Cherry sounded off last Saturday.

Cherry made the following comments:

You people … love our way of life, you love our milk and honey. At least you could pay a couple of bucks for a poppy. These guys paid for your way of life, the life you enjoy in Canada. These guys paid the biggest price.

After much backlash from angry journalists, political pundits, and viewers, Sportsnet confirmed that Cherry was fired from Hockey Night in Canada on November 11, 2019.

Canadian nationalist Faith Goldy was one of the few people to come to Cherry’s defense.

She tweeted, “Our nation’s love of hockey is, in part, what hurts us. Our eyes affixed to the TV, we do duty, loyalty, and in-group preference in teams as opposed to by country. Don Cherry dared to discuss immigration during a hockey game and got fired. This is the wake up call Canada needs.”

 

Cherry’s remarks may have been abrasive to the politically sensitive, but they open up some uncomfortable questions that must be addressed.

Mass migration has become one of the most polarizing issues in the West due to a wide-range of concerns ranging from security to economic impact.

On top of that, there’s also questions about social alienation as large waves of migrants come and effectively displace traditional communities.

Political scientist Robert Putnam’s book Bowling Alone argues that diversity is not a strength and in fact erodes social trust and creates social tension in many communities.

This is important because mass migration is part of the sacred religion of multiculturalism that has taken over the West during the last few decades.

Additionally, Cherry’s firing shows how ingrained outrage mobs are in Western culture. Free speech, no matter how controversial it is, is something that should be embraced by both political actors and civil society.

Once that falls apart, a society is well on the path to PC tyranny.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
