And it has been going on for a very long time. What were called “Residential Schools” were concentration camps for children. The Ustashi had them for Serbian children in Sisak during the Second World War.
The difference is Canada had one during peacetime, not war — that is the reason it could keep going on for decades.
I remember when I was an undergrad and I took an elective in Genocide, there were many cases of it, this, too, fits the pattern. You have too high of a body count to be able to dismiss this as lunacy or “propaganda.”
First Nations people have always been treated with disrespect and disdain — just look at what happened to Jody Wilson-Raybould: the Prime Minister repeatedly talks down about her as if she were a child with severe learning disabilities. He is as repulsive as a person can possibly get for it.
But it doesn’t end there. It never does. My family perished in a genocide — and then they came here, having no clue that you cannot get away from it.
This country has a lot to answer for — not just about the horrific treatment of the First Nations community — but about a lot of other things, too. The Nice Guy façade has been ripped off, and we need to stop pretending, justifying, and minimizing what still goes on.
Genocide has many faces: most times, it happens out in the open in war, but sometimes it is quiet and subtle, and it happens in “peacetime.” The latter is more dangerous because there will be a denial and those who see the obvious are treated patronizingly as they are called hysterical loons.
This is a lawless country where anything goes. We will go down hard on people we see as weak as we make fun of them in order to discredit them. There is no reason for any of it.
It isn’t just happening in Canada. Serbs in Kosovo have been going through a similar hell for decades, and we have Western countries blaming Serbs because to acknowledge it would draw attention to the things they are doing to their own citizens, with Canada on the top of the list.
Enough is enough. Barbarians in three piece suits think they wear a clever disguise and also believe they mask their psychopathic tendencies by mislabeling it as being “rational” and “objective.” Nice try, but you are just not that cunning, just immoral.
I have no trouble unleashing my righteousness. I do have trouble with a dawdling nation quibbling over the obvious destruction of an entire group of people. If this doesn’t bother you, you have lost your soul.
As I have asked before: who gets sent to the Hague first for crimes against humanity?
Or do we create a new body elsewhere to bring those to justice?
