Canadian Hypocrisy at its Finest

In a story found at Common
By George Galloway
The Canadian immigration minister Jason Kenney gazetted in the Sun yesterday morning that I was to be excluded from his country because of my views on Afghanistan. That's the way the rightwing, last-ditch dead-enders of Bushism in Ottawa conduct their business.
Because this five time elected official may wish to address the Canadian people on a subject divergent from the Harper Government party line he is barred from entry into Canada. I am certain that I do not stand alone when I state that it is time for the Canadian people to say goodbye to this man this party and their following of failed Republican principals and politicians.
George Galloway wanted to speak to the subject of Afghanistan and troops dying in a war we can not win. Many Canadians have issues with the way our government is prosecuting this military effort and what our final goals are. This mans opinion cannot be heard.
Now George W Bush on the other hand who was subject to a good deal of lobbying by Lawyers against the War, and because of his admitted use of torture does not conform to Canadian standards for entry, was allowed in. He wasn’t given a heroes welcome by the Canadian people only by the fifteen hundred oil barons in Calgary. The shoe throwing crowds outside said it all. They spoke for me.
To sum up my point, peace activists, not allowed war criminals welcome.
Hypocrisy blooms early this spring!!

Isn't that the way.. the war mongers speak with the loudest voice it seems.. I guess we need to learn to speak I think in time our voices will be heard, it is just that over the last 8 years people tended to ignore us for so long, they got used to it and now it is going to take time to learn to listen to us again.
