imagesIt seems that the discredited Canadian Human Rights Commission is striving to regain its public image by laying a wreath at the national ceremonies of rememberance.  In their press release, the CHRC spouts absolute crap: 

“The wreath will be placed by Chief Commissioner Jennifer Lynch, Q.C, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Throughout our history, Canadian soldiers have served to promote and protect human rights and freedoms and to uphold universal values of dignity and justice. The Commission will pay special tribute to honour the men and women who have served so valiantly to uphold Canada’s commitment to universal dignity and justice – values that transcend cultures and traditions.”

My grandfather (1892 – 1976 / East Yorks and CGA) sure as hell did not ‘serve to promote and protect human rights’ at least not as they are imagined by the CHRC.  He fought to ensure that the Kaiser’s soldiers didn’t get to retain the swath of Europe they had laid hold of and waste to.  He was a true soldier of the Empire and post mondern ‘institutions’ such as the United Nations and self serving clubs such as the CHRC, he had nothing but contempt for. 

This attempt to hijack history and turn the sacrifice of our soldiers into some sort of homage to the UN is disgusting and must not be allowed to stand.  Contact your MP and the Minister for Veterans Affairs.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron'scruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. C.S. Lewis
