The Face of a Racist and The Faces of a Race

The Face of a Racist

Capt. Watson on Newfoundland and Labradorians:

“blight and a curse... they debased Canada when they joined Canada in 1949..."

“a place where priests rape orphans and residents kill seabirds for fun"

“…60 million people saw Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams humiliate himself with his rambling fabrications defending the seal hunt, [some] have actually compared his so called “oratory skills” to Winston Churchill…Can you see this speech going down in the annals of history? B’yes, we will fight these seal defenders on the ocean. We will fight them on land. We will fight them in the air... We will continue to bash in their little heads, skin them alive and give ‘em the boot. We were born to kill seals because we are Newfies, and by God our very identity depends on being cruel seal-killing bastards. Yes sir b’ye…, more like the anus of history.”

“Too bad Danny. Newfoundland, and Labrador are not deserving of respect. As a Canadian, I have absolutely no respect for Newfoundlanders.”

“Asking us to respect Newfoundlanders is like asking us to have respect for the soldiers of the Third Reich.”

“’Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the Earth’. One thing for sure, Jesus Christ was not referring to the sealers of Newfoundland when he made that statement.”

The Faces of a Race

These are the faces of successful business people, NHL stars, Olympic Gold Medalists, Juno award winners, the number one man in the Canada Forces, Rhodes Scholars, top selling Canadian Writers and Artists that are the pride of Canada.

They are Great Big Sea, Danny Williams, one of the greatest Canadian Poets of all time the late EJ Pratt, Mary Walsh, Micheal Ryder, the late Cpl. Murphy who died for Canada in Afghanistan, Gen. Rick Hillier, Rick Mercer, Seamus O'Regan, Rex Murphy, the late Ed "Sailor" White, Cathy Jones, Ron Hynes, Wayne Johnston.

... and they are but a mere few that immediately come to mind. These are the people that compel me to defend against those who throw hatred our way. RACE: A group of people united or classified together on the basis of common history, nationality, or geographic distribution.

RACIST: The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.
