Canada’s Tax-Dollars Splurged to Honour Red Bethune


It goes without saying that adult Communists are either bad or stupid or both. Kids join the YCL partly because they don’t know any beter, partly to show off their rebellious spirit.

But anyone who reaches maturity and fails to realise the essential evil of communism must be a dunderhead; there are plenty of those around, often with polytechnic degrees in sociology to disguise their dimwittery.

But genuinely educated and intelligent people who promote communism are intrinsically wicked – they know its malignant aims and they are fully aware of its merciless cruelties. But nevertheless they adhere to its satanic cause.

Bethune, Honoured in a Commie Poster

Such a one was Norman Bethune. A dedicated enemy of humanity, a foe of freedom, he actually chose to go and serve the worst tyrant of the 20th Century, Mao Tse Tung.

And Stephen Harper’s just pledged TWO AND A HALF MILLION of YOUR dollars to honour the red swine.

==========Toronto Sun, Wednesday

Andrew MacDougall, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s spokesman, said Wednesday that Parks Canada locations – like where the new visitors centre at the Bethune Memorial House National Historic Site is located – “cover the full spectrum of political actors (and) political thought from Canada’s past.”  He added that tourism dollars spent at such sites are an important part of Canada’s “fragile economic recovery.”

Grubbing about for tourist dollars by honouring evil is pretty low by anyone’s standards. And Bethune was evil.

…Queen’s University’s Bruce Gilley, an expert on China’s politics, cautioned that while there’s no harm in commemorating Bethune’s legacy as a dedicated surgeon and inventor, it shouldn’t be sugar-coated.

.The controversial comrade was used by Mao Zedong – who went on to become known as one of the world’s worst mass murderers – as a “moral model” of unquestioning obedience to the Communist party, he said. “Bethune was someone we would in our contemporary Western world call a useful idiot,” he said. “He more or less took leave of his moral compass and senses when he went to China and threw himself into the Communist cause.”

Gilley noted it was well established by the late 1930s that the Chinese Communists were under Moscow’s thumb and Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin had already killed millions of his own people and set up the Gulag labour camps. “There was little doubt that what Mao planned for China was what Stalin had planned for the Soviet Union,” he said.

Clement the Klutz

Treasury Board President Tony Clement, who breezed in to the centre’s grand opening Wednesday in a bright orange rickshaw, told the crowd he wasn’t celebrating Bethune’s ardent Communist ideology but his other values. “What I see in Dr. Bethune is his spirit of humanitarianism,” he said.

  • What a klutz!
