A couple of days ago, Prime Minister Stephen Harper spoke at a ceremony to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall, that symbol of communist tyranny.
And that makes me wonder why tomorrow, some Conservative MPs will be at another ceremony commemorating a man who fought for communist tyranny.
"The man" is, of course, Norman Bethune. Stay classy, Gerry Nicholls.
And what exactly did this nebbish ever fight for?
Speak for yourself, Albertard.
Союз нерушимый республик свободных
Сплотила навеки Великая Русь!
Да здравствует созданный волей народов
Единый, могучий Советский Союз!
Славься, Отечество наше свободное,
Дружбы народов надёжный оплот!
Партия Ленина — сила народная
Нас к торжеству коммунизма ведёт!sk
Norman Bethune fought the fascists in Spain and was helping the Chinese to fight the Japanese. He also invented the first mobile blood transfusion clinics that helped save solder's lives on the battlefield - and were the model for the MASH units.
If you don't like his politics, fine. But Nicholls goes too far, as do you. Sweek. He does deserve to be honoured.
this conversation is for grown-ups.
Ok, "Leeky Sweek," with the putty-tat for an avatar.
Ok, Scott. But one last question for you:
Would you honour him if he was a Nazi who had the same medical accomplishments?
You are who you keep company with and Bethune aligned himself with members of a political philosophy that ultimately killed millions of people.
Barbara Amiel was a communist.
I wasn't planning on commenting just thinking about all the shreeking ee sounds in the name of Leeky Sweek and then the word verification said pleak (I shit you not)
Jesus was your basic proto-communist. How many people in history have aligned themselves with his "party"?
Get a grip, mystereeoso.
Jesus never advocated killing anyone.
The Nazis were Christians.
We need to use Norman Bethune to keep the trade goods flowing. One must be practical.
Plato was a great proto-communist.
