Watch the True North Initiative recap the events of Omar Kadhr:
Watch CBC episode on Omar Khadr:
Dear everyone who claims there is no culture war going on and everything is a conservative conspiracy, why is CBC choosing to interview a convicted terrorist who fought alongside a terrorist organization responsible for killing hundreds of Christians every year? A terrorist who pleaded guilty to murdering an american medic and injuring another american soldier?
Why, out of 365 days in a year, does CBC choose EASTER sunday to hold this interview with this terrorist? Is there a place and time to hold this conversation? Sure. I don’t like it but sure. But EASTER SUNDAY? from now on anyone who wants to cite any CBC article to me, you can expect me to simply refer you to this as my response. CBC is completely morally bankrupt at this point as far as I’m concerned.
I can appreciate the exploration of grey areas but this is pretty black and white to me. I have no problem seeing what’s obviously wrong with this. But I’m not surprised by it. And this is why it’s clear to me that the CBC should no longer receive federal subsidization. Let their ideas face the free market and see if anyone will support their trash out in the real world alongside all the other media.
how is this not a direct assault on Christians? and a slap in the face to all of our veterans? You want to talk about dreaming of an ordinary life? Why don’t you ask that of the widow and children of the medic HE MURDERED? Just when I thought the Omar Khadr affair couldn’t stoop any lower, CBC proves me wrong. Wow. Defunding the CBC just became a huge voting issue for me.
