Richard Klagsbrun has pretty much had it at this point…
The authors The Globe chose to promote, Farber and Fontaine, make a curious pair of “genocide” hucksters who may have driving motives other than their own particular concept of “social justice.” Fontaine is a former National Chief who obviously craves the limelight, as does Farber. Beyond that, Farber now makes his living working for a company that needs to convince First Nations groups to let them build energy facilities on their land. Whether or not he believes that Canada committed a genocide, being seen as an extremist in their corner can’t be bad for business. (…)
And this says nothing of the facts about the current situation of First Nations in Canada. It would be a very curious form of genocide indeed that has resulted in First Nations being the fastest growing population in Canada. Last time I checked, that would make it the exact opposite of a genocide. Of course, this would not be the first time a group claimed a fake genocide, as their numbers are vastly increasing, solely for political aims.
PLUS Scaramouche writes about “The Long Scourger” — I initially read that as “Scrounger” — and his Indian sidekick (“Fonto”?):
There was a time when the former Chief of the Jioux who co-wrote this soppy poppycock would have been able to see the truth of this observation, and would have howled in outrage had anyone compared the Shoah to, say, the experience of Native kids in residential schools. Sadly–no, tragically–that’s no longer the case. Exiled from the Jewish reserve, he has now sought out greener, non-Jewish pastures, the nutty results of which are plain for all to see, right there in black and white.
