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.
Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election
America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.
On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.
According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate.
“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.
The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”
In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that “This is a tough time to be in public service.”
Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back.
2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state.
America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
