NCC Bureaucrats Wanted Memorial To Victims Of Communism To Exclude Reference To Communism

“Finally, the language for the commemoration “should be more inclusive, evoking oppression instead of communism, which would be more relevant over time,” the committee said.”

Oh? Do they have a 5 Year Plan in place for this inevitability?

    Pusillanimous officials and politicians are the same the world over.
    Greenwich Council refused to put Lee Rigby’s name on a memorial at Woolwich. That might upset the mahometans. Instead they insisted on a general commemoration to all those from the armed services who lived or served in Woolwich.

    Not surprising the NCC is probably as corrupted by neo-Marxists as any other Canadian institution.

    NCC is one of the most evil things about Ottawa.

    marxists are even more sensitive than turks when it comes to admitting their real talents as rulers always seems to fall back on confiscation of private property and mass slaughter of its now unneeded former owners.

    I have had enough of these neo-Marxist twits. Has any of them ever lived under a communist regime? Well, my wife’s parents fled Poland in the late 60’s because they couldn’t stomach it any more. Internal soviet census records cant account for over 25 million people during Stalin’s reign of terror, over 75 million Chinese vanished during Mao’s tenure. That’s not even counting the few million here and there that Pol Pot, the Castro brothers (with the aid of the psychopath, I mean peoples hero, Che Guevara) and various other tin pot dictators have killed.

    Nothing a few good stiff uppercuts won’t fix.

    So one could have a memorial to the victims of the Holocaust excluding any reference to Nazism and Hitler based on this rubbish. Communism is an evil ideology that has destroyed more human lives than any other ideology. Islam is similar but so far lacks the resources and advancement to kill as many.

    Back in the day, knew a neighbour who had fled Communist Hungary BEFORE the Revolution. He’d got out, at great risk, and ended up in Australia. Then he came to Canada, to our town, where he was a teacher. Cannot imagine his reaction to this example of cowardice, pusillanimity, and general stupidity. Actually, I can. Unfortunately, he is no longer with us to express those thoughts.
