I’ve been doing interviews with liberal media all day and they all ask the same thing: “Don’t you think it’s disrespectful for your friends to be questioning Micmacs in a town where Cornwallis put a bounty on their heads?” To which I respond, “WHY did Cornwallis have a bounty on their heads?” It always garners silence.
The Micmacs were fierce warriors. They were so effective, in fact, that the French hired them to attack the British in what is now Halifax. They were doing a great job of raping and pillaging and murdering us so Cornwallis put a bounty on their heads. Fortunately for the Indians, they were so good at fighting that not one bounty was ever achieved. Journalists don’t know this. Their curiosity stops at “bounty.” I think it’s insulting to the Micmacs to portray them as victims. They were one of our most worthy adversaries, ever.
The protesters were being brats and Canadians appeased them. Sorry, ingrates, but that’s not the deal in a free country. You can’t just call yourself a chief and say that every time you vandalize statues it’s a “religious ceremony.” You don’t get to tell people where they can and cannot walk and what flags they can carry, especially when that flag is a Canadian flag and you’re proudly waving your desecrated flag on Canada’s 150th birthday. The Micmacs didn’t have their land stolen by colonizers. They signed a treaty after kicking our asses. The religious-ceremony trope is a complete lie, but even if it were true, the Proud Boys did nothing wrong. They showed up to an event at a public park, asked some questions, and left. For this, they have been painted by the mainstream media as white supremacists and may lose their livelihoods. Even a sailor’s girlfriend is in trouble. She’s an officer who trains cadets and when she saw a picture of her boyfriend waving the flag on Canada Day she tweeted, “Proud of my boy.” I believe she was removed from the training camp she worked at, but I can’t verify this.
