Conrad Black: WLU’s decision to remove the statue of John A. Macdonald is cowardly and disgraceful

Canada is suffering from a prolonged pandemic of moral self-flagellation promoted by hemophiliac bleeding hearts and militant native agitators. The latest outburst of it is the recent decision of the governors of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ont., to withdraw from an arrangement to erect statues of all 22 of Canada’s former prime ministers on the campus, as part of the observation of the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation.

There is something uniquely and disgracefully Canadian about such a decision.

      I had to send my kids to Bob Jones University in the States years ago. Never regretted it.

    Nat Po allowed my comment. A reply said that Finn is a Professor of Art History and Media. No big surprise there.

    “As usual, Black is wallowing in excessive verbosity. However, I am in complete agreement.

    I’m also willing to bet that Jonathan Finn is not a professor of any of the STEM subjects that might be of use to students in order to be successful in life.

    I have a mental picture of his lectures, populated by Millennial Snowflakes with vivid hair and cattle jewellery in their faces, happy in the “safe space” of his classroom, as he explains how to watch for “microaggressions” and pumps Cultural Marxism into their tender, willing ears.

      Hey WLU, before you make any decisions maybe you should take a little fact-finding trip (expensed by the university, of course) to Mizzou and see how things are working out for them.

    i’ll take the statue of John and put it in my lawn as a safe space for me.

  • Achmed

    Good for WLU for not promoting another corrupt drunk white guy.

    They should replace that statue with the representation of modern progressive Canada someone like Omar Alghabra!

    Mustn’t up set- the Natives—
    They might go on strike.

    Oh God, think about it though. If this project goes through, we’re going to get one of Justine.

  • Ron MacDonald

    What is happening in Canada and the US is part of the overall plan by progressive to destroy the current Canadian/American value system and replace it with their own.

    Replace all statues of dead white people with artistic reprentations of stacked turtles.
    Turtles, all the way down!

    Watch this summer you will see a push to rename the Sir John Parkway in Ottawa to something stupid like the Freedom Parkway.

    Maybe a statue of a whiny indian scalping a woman would be more appropriate.

  • simus1

    At least “John A” was !!0% intent on accomplishing something that would lay the foundations for a future great nation even if skirting close to bankruptcy was the risk. The Lieberals of today, on the other hand are lesser small minded ciphers.

    ” … on land that traditionally belongs to the … Anishnaube and Haudenausaunee peoples …”
    *Belonged*. In the past. Not anymore. And if they want to rouse themselves out of a drunken stupor, put down the gas rag they’re sniffing and fight over it, bring ’em on.
