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.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks. 

Can Americans actually grow a spine for once?
