Sun News Shows Some Balls, Too Bad The National Post Is Lacking Them!

While watching Ezra tonight, I saw an ad that struck a cord with me. Kudos to Sun TV for airing the ad!

It is an honest representation of what is going on in the public schools in Ontario, and other provinces. What I don't like is the fact that parents can not take THEIR children out of those classes. Parents should be outraged by the fact that schools are dictating to them, and forcing them to obey or shut up.

Overall, the curriculum amounts to a government-endorsed sexual exploitation of young children. Teaching children tolerance (accepting something you don’t like for the good of society) is very different from teaching them they must actively promote, or refrain from the legitimate criticism of, certain practices.
It’s time for public schools to get out of the social activism arena and focus on providing kids with the real educational tools that they need to succeed.
I see nothing wrong with this ad, but apparently the typical lefties have their shorts in a knot.  It must have been real bad for the National Post to buckle under the pressure.

Where the ad exceeded the bounds of civil discourse was in its tone and manipulative use of a picture of a young girl; in the suggestion that such teaching “corrupts” children, with everything that such a charge implies; and in its singling out of groups of people with whose sexuality the group disagrees.
The fact that we will not be publishing this ad again represents a recognition on our part that publishing it in the first place was a mistake.
 What a pathetically weak reason for canceling the ad. The people at the National Post should be ashamed of themselves for grovelling before the special interest groups. SHAME! The manipulative use of a picture of a young girl? So I guess you will not be taking any ads from World Vision and the like, because if they don't use manipulative pictures of young girls and boys, I don't know who does. I lost a lot of respect for the National Post because they bowed down to a special interest group who is busy manipulating our children in our schools. Grow some balls National Post.

What happened to freedom of speech in Canada? Special interest groups have taken over and corrupted what freedom of speech means. Special interest groups think freedom of speech only refers to them and their positions on issues, try to give a different point of view, and you end up like the National Post, grovelling BEFORE them, instead of standing up TO them. 

Thanks for showing some balls Sun TV! Keep up the great work!

That's why all serious minded conservative Canadians need to support SunTV with their dollars, and when necessary with their letters, emails, and phone calls.

Go Ezra!

What all serious Canadians should be doing is sticking 2 fingers up telling McTwat and the schools to F**O and pulling their kids.

Couldn't agree more, Hunter. The Post has been steadily drifting towards the politically correct MSM attitude. Very disappointing.
