A tribute to Canadian Scots

OK, I am not Scots and have never been to Scotland. But I have known a few Scots-Americans and have been to Canada a few times. So, I am not sure whether I have a dog in this fight or not. However, what little I know of the Scottish people and Scotland has been fairly positive. My feelings toward Canada, on the other hand, blow hot and cold. On the positive side of the ledger, Canadian kids go outside in the winter and play hockey, like civilized people. In the US, youths of similar age coop themselves up in a sweaty gym and bounce a big noisy orange ball around and call it a “sport.” On the negative side of the equation, Canada is a bastion of liberal political correctness. It severely curtails free speech, particularly counterjihad speech.

So, put the Canadian Museum of Civilization and its neglect of Scots-Canadian history, heritage, and contributions on the negative side of the equation. As a Czech-American, I know what it is like to be culturally and politically “invisible.” It’s worse still for those on the 1389 Blog team with Serbian heritage, who have the accomplishments of their people ignored, and who are tagged with myths concerning their misdeeds. So, go Scots-Canadians! And, if this keeps up, the next time the US hockey team plays the Canadian team in the Olymics, I won’t be for Canada again, no matter how much beer Obama has bet on the US team.

Respecting the Scots

Gavin McInnes says the Canadian Museum of Civilization isn’t paying the proper dues to the Scots who helped found Canada.

I recall when the City of Toronto and even Scotiabank were eager to pump millions of dollars into CARABANA, the Jamaican parade, but would give nothing to the Bobby Burns Scotish parade. Nothing for a culture which helped build Canada, and millions of dollars for a culture which is responsible for 95% of all gun related crimes in Toronto, figure that out. There are always shootings and drug arrests at Caribana, but nothing like that would happen at a Bobby Burns parade.
