Iowa Congressman Steve King came to Canadian hockey commentary Mark Cherry’s defense on November 12, 2019.
Cherry caused a firestorm last weekend when he made controversial statements questioning the civic devotion of his fellow Canadians.
He specifically expressed his dismay towards the lack of patriotism being shown during the lead up to Remembrance Day, when Canadian veterans are commemorated for their service in previous armed conflicts.
Patriotic Canadians typically show theirs respects by purchasing poppy, an artificial flower that is sold to raise money to go towards veterans.
After complaining on air about the lack of enthusiasm for Remembrance Day and using the word “you people” during his talk, Cherry was lambasted across Twitter.
The pressure was so strong that his employer Sportsnet ended up firing him for his allegedly “inflammatory” comments.
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. https://t.co/U1zgg6PFhx

King tweeted, “Oh, Canada! The black facing Prime Minister is re-elected and the face of Canadian hockey is fired for patriotic speak.”
King referred to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s recent black face scandal, of which he received a pass from the media while coasting to victory in recent elections.
The Iowa Congressman raised a good point about the PC double standard the Left uses against the Right.
When the Left itself engages in activities it otherwise considers racist, they turn a blind eye.
But when a right wing figure makes the slightest hint of expressing pride for his country or tries to encourage positive nationalism, they’re immediately labeled racist.
Cherry’s firing shows how global the PC war has become in the Anglo world.
We now live in an environment where saying the wrong things at work could have individuals facing off with an outrage mob that will likely get them fired.
Once every nook and cranny of society gets politicized, no one is safe from the Evangelical Left’s thought policing.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
