Yesterday I went to York University to cover the lecture of Dr. Mordechai Kedar.
On my way down from the third floor of the student building, where the event took place, I noticed the flags hanging all over the stairs.
That must be some kind of a happy multicultural event, because I could find the flags of even the most obscure Polynesian islands. However, when I looked closely, only one of the flags didn’t look quite right. Here you can see what I mean:
Did you notice the Canadian flag? On top of the maple leaf they pasted an Indian with a tomahawk. And here is a close-up that may help you see better:
Not only has been the Canadian flag defaced, but it has also been put in the company of banners that don’t belong to any country. Below are the “Six Nations” flag, another one that I don’t know, and finally the notorious “Mohawk Warrior” flag, which is the symbol of the native militancy. Many people have been assaulted by aboriginal criminals under it.
If the organizers wanted to make a point about “oppression”, they could’ve pasted a Tibetan on the Chinese flag above, but none of the other banners displayed was treated like the Canadian. Even the Israeli flag was intact (although at a previous event they conveniently “forgot” to display it).
I understand the position of the York University administration and its student union. They despise everything that doesn’t advance the cause of the Arab terrorism and the socialist transformation of Canada (that’s why they invite terrorist admirers like George Galloway).
However, we live in Canada; the Canadian people make major tax contributions, which allow places like York University to function. I am not aware of any Indians with tomahawks who have contributed money to anything.
Doesn’t our national flag, which symbolizes our country, deserve at least a little respect? I know that York University is a multicultural place, where “Canadian patriotism” is a dirty expression and the main priority is to accommodate the hijabs and provide halal meat for everybody.
Still, it is hard to believe that the place could sink to such a new low…
