Beware of False Patriots

"Beware of false patriots who come disguised as harmless Beavers but are really vicious Asses"
One must be wary of these most foul of creatures for they will wrap themselves in the flag, passing flag laws, attaching "Royal" to nearly everything in the nation whether animate or not, while sending our sons and daughters to fight wars in far away places to restore what they consider our good name. These false patriots will also call into question the patriotism of any who dare disagree with them, branding their opponents as somehow not real Canadians.

Of course once one strips away their flag draped veneer to expose their true natures what one sees is a group that sells out our nation's sovereignty with trade deals and security partnerships. Who allow foreign national corporations to rape our resources shipping them off shore to be processed robbing our people of jobs and leaving behind a scarred and poisoned landscape.They collude with others to have our citizens rendered for torture and abandon more to rot in foreign prisons in the name of political expediency. As you see they are not what they seem.

While these faux patriots can sometimes be difficult to see, for they have mastered the art of disguise, their opposite is thankfully quite easy to spot she or he is the one criticizing their government in the pages of our newspapers,from the soapbox or at the dinner table. He or she is the one marching in the streets crying out for a better society or occupying a small piece of their city in order to hold their government to account. For you see true patriots know that it is their responsibility to do so
