The Truth Does Not Get Out There.

When seals are hunted the media is all over it.

Every attempt is made to portray Newfoundlanders and Labradorians as barbarians.

When a pod of porpoise are trapped in Seal Cove, as they currently are, and the people of the province are screaming for DFO, the Coast Guard or anyone else to help, the national and international media is missing in action.

Does anyone besides myself find this more than passingly odd?

Newfounlanders and Labradorians are portrayed in the international media as crass killing machines who love to kill "baby" seals ( a lie but never the less).

Why is it that when the truth of our people as a caring lot comes to the fore nobody is willing to report on it?

"Racism is the belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. People with racist beliefs might hate certain groups of people according to their racial groups. In the case of institutional racism, certain racial groups may be denied rights or benefits, or get preferential treatment. Racial discrimination typically points out taxonomic differences between different groups of people, even though anybody can be racialised, independently of their somatic differences. According to the United Nations conventions, there is no distinction between the term racial discrimination and ethnic discrimination."

Patriot, as you and I know, Canadains are hypocrites. They will tell you one thing, then do the opposite, as they pull the gun away from your head.The same with these earth first types.

As you said ," WHERE ARE THEY NOW" ???

Ryan Cleary just broke the news that the Willies have been freed. Well actually, he read the news from the National Post, which broke the story for him.
