    This insane Cancel Culture BS is creating an atmosphere of intimidation and fear in our country (and all of the West). Many of the people decrying Don Cherry more than likely voted for Trudeau last month. Wearing blackface more times than he can remember, kicking women out of the Cabinet because they don't toe the fake feminist line he pushes, and ethics violations are just fine with the SJW Leftist mob, but Don Cherry is a bigot because he is calling out people for not being aware or even interested in acknowledging the unbelievable sacrifices that our veterans have made and continue to make.

    In my opinion this is "White Guilt" - the idea that Caucasians and the West are responsible for all the evil in the world while greedily exploiting the coloured folk (apparently democracy, human rights, medicine and educational systems are a blight on the globe) - and therefore they have to make up for it by pointing at other white people and calling them bad, which at the same time highlights the fact that they are one of the good ones. "See? I'm so anti-racist that I hate white people! I'm so virtuous! Not like those OTHER white people, they're the bad ones."

    Additionally, if you are a "Person of Colour" (apparently that's what they've decided to call us now - it's better than "visible minority") who does not feel oppressed, does not have a resentment towards Caucasians or blame them for all your problems, you are out of the club. These leftist SJW's consider "minorities" inferior oppressed folk who are helpless and just don't know what's good for us - therefore we need custodians and shepherds to protect us and keep us in line when we start thinking for ourselves. If we aren't offended, they'll be offended for us whether we like it or not. And lucky for us, THEY KNOW WHAT WE NEED.

    Both of my parents are immigrants to this country (I was born here) and they are in full agreement with Don, as am I. But that means they're out of the club and bad. Those immigrants' opinions don't count. Because.

    And I'll leave you with this. Remember this next year you racist pigs, laying a wreath on Remembrance Day is just wrong and bigoted:

    Well done. So very well done.

    Mr. Cherry’s personal opinion was hurtful, divisive and in no way condoned by the Legion. We do remain appreciative of his passionate support for Veterans.

    We know many new Canadians understand and welcome the tradition of the red poppy and will continue to educate all citizens about the significance of this powerful symbol.
    Seems like the people in charge at the Legion did not like what he said either

    Agreed. The entire premise of the article is based on a false narrative found in the opening statement.

    As if anybody is actually insinuating that honouring veterans is antiquated or wrong. Who buys this bs?

    The least you people can do is pay 2 bucks for a poppy.

    The whole point is the poppy. The whole point of his rant (as it was every single year) is to honour the soldiers.

    Still conveniently leaving out the important part of what he said. You really just don't even get it.

    Honouring the soldiers is the important part of what he said.

    Fine, the important part of what he said relative to why the **** any of us are talking about it. The xenophobic part.

    You're only looking with your eyes half open and seeing what you want to see.

    Everyone knows "what" he said but those that are offended are missing the point because they are so blinded by their "offendedness" (if thats even a word). BUY A POPPY!

    Why do I feel like we are chasing our tail here LOL!
