The Reformer's Firebrand

*-{The New Canadian Colonist's Advocate }-* A commentary of fiery reformist sentiment from the spirit of it's 210 year old Canadian ghost publisher patron. This will be a home to the new wave of anti-partisan advocacy for defeating Canada's second "family compact" and reinstallation of responsible governance in this 21st century new Canadian democratic dominion.

Ban "Gangsta Niggas" Not Duck Guns.

From the "we told you so" department:

"One telling example occurred at the back of a crowded Toronto bus last fall, after a young man told a group of tough-talking youngsters that "people on this bus don't appreciate or care about what you're talking about."
"What, you think we're bitches?" a 16-year-old retorted. "We gangsta niggas," his cohort said. And with that, bullets flew -- almost killing the 24-year-old man, who later told his story to this newspaper, and hitting 11-year-old Tamara Carter, who suffered a serious injury to her left eye. "

"Det. Gallant suggested some young criminals are ready to kill or be killed so they can emulate the high-living drug dealers and pimps whom they have grown up watching on TV. "

"I've had young kids say to me, 'I'm not afraid to die.' A 19-year-old. They don't care," Det. Gallant said. "You see these guys watching rap movies and videos, and look at what these guys are carrying -- the money, the flashy cars."
"If you're driving a flashy car, it's not enough to have a cheap gun. You have got to have a Smith & Wesson."

"Still, a lot of police have trouble seeing today's criminals as needy children, especially given the disregard for life that exists on the streets."

Obviously in high crime scenarios, gun abuse is cultural matter, and the culture abusing them is not the "gun culture" of traditional Canada or America . It is an imported culture that has value systems diametrically opposite to traditional Canada. 2 billion dollars is being wasted on this simple misconception. Strong incarcerations, or deprtation are in order in the war against gang related crime...not spending 2 billion on criminalization of duck and deer hunters.

All part of the diverse culture that is celebrated in tolerant and caring Toronto.

No doubt these kids will form a Guard of Honour along with the gay priders at the new GG's inauguration.

Years ago this would raised my body temperature slightly and have me spewing a few thousand profanities, but now it all just seems normal.

Normal because we live in a society where there is no punishment or consequences for crime due to lack of a justice system and the forced Librano values of socialist dependency.

Librano values are not my values, therefore I'm am Un-Canadian and have no response because it has to get worse before it will ever get better. Kind of like the alcoholic analogy. The whole of society has to wake up to the problem, and have the desire to do something about it.

One can only hope that this idiocy collapses soon so we can get back to a normal way of life.

"some crime IS cultural in nature....and that culture rejects both traditional Canadian values and the new nanny state values..."

I think you're sort of on the right track here. Canadians and North American in general place and intrinsic value on LIFE. Most 3rd world cultures don't either due to staggeringly high mortality rates or staggeringly high birth rates. In the first case death is a fact of daily life (eg. Aids in sub-saharan Africa) and in the second humans are the most replaceable of all commodities. (virtually all asian communities) Either way life in itself has no value.

I don't know that I would say that crime is cultural - but there definately is a rejection of Canadian Values.

All that being said - when do you suppose the vast majority of Canadians are going to start realizing the gun registry was a collosal failure and start questioning where their 2 billion $$ went. More importantly all that money should have been spent on policing not a bureaucracy.

When Rudy Guillani took over New York City it was the worst crime hole on the continent. He cleaned it up and did it in record time.
He got tough.
That is what we must do, absolutely. I cannot see the libs getting tough with anyone except overtaxed taxpayers. They are at a complete loss to do anything effective. They have squandered billions of dollars and have absolutely NOTHING to show for it. Their report card is astonishingly inadequate yet they fully expect for us to forget all this and re-elect these idiots.
Somehow we have to realize that we need politicians who will do what needs to be done and we are the only ones who can get that point across. There is only one place to do it: The ballot box.

"Until we wake up and start calling a spade a spade,it will not change.Not only is the fucking gunregistry a joke,so is our immigration system."

Many of you seem to be missing my point. That is: the culture we have "imported" is the "gangsta" culture of inner urban has been imported over the airways and in audio/video media. Pop culture promotes this "art" of rapping gangsters as the latest pop trend....teens want to emulate these rappers/Gangsters.

Their culture, which places such low value on life and moraity and such high value on outward display of wealth and power, is foreign to Canadian culture and the many cultures of our immigrants.

When you idolize gangsters you idolize criminal culture....and we import this with every play of their videos and CDs.

It appears as if some minority community's teens have idolized this Gangster culture as giving them instant status and respect...the sad fact is they only victimize their own with drugs and violence. If the day comes when minority gangs leave the "projects" of Don Mills and Scarbox and start shooting up liberal yuppies in TO's upscale communities you will see them take action......but for now there is no incentive to cure the propblem....minorities shooting minorities in inner city projects gives the navel gazing gushing left an opportunity to let their hearts bleed all over the issue and spout philosophical and spend wads of tax on pointless feel good projects that employ more mindless left wing WASPish "feelers".......worst case of NIMBY I've ever seen.

Inner city welfare state gang culture has been imported through popular media and well heeled yuppies wring their hands over it and pay lip servive to "cures" because it does not effect them directly. They are insulated...the people dying are those stuck in the the welfare state's multi cult ghettos.

The only people who care are the people in the immigrant/minority communities these gangsters are shooting up and polluting with drugs.....they will have to take action themselves because all the gutless Canadian left can do is wring its hands and gush about the humanity of it all and blame the US for supplying the guns....but they won't attack the issue of this imported crime culture at its roots.
