Omar Khadr - Future Liberal MP!

July 1, 2013 - Toronto - After a disastrous defeat by the Conservatives in 2009, the reconstituted Liberal Party of Canada, announced it newest candidate today. Omar Khadr, once an alleged al Qaeda terrorist and Guantanomo Bay prisoner, announced his candidacy today in the riding of Toronto-Danforth.

Liberal leader Bob Rae started the press conference by introducing Khadr: "Once an innocent child, illegally incarcerated by the American government, Omar has fought a righteous campaign in support of human rights for all ethnicities. Five years ago, when I was instrumental in freeing him, I must confess that I didn't know him very well. But having spent much time with him and his family ever since, I am now proud to call Omar a key member of the Rainbow Coalition that is the new Liberal Party of Canada."

Hypocrisy of the "Repatriate Omar Khadr to Canada" Movement

As soon as the Gitmo interrogation tape of Omar Khadr hit the Internet, the blogosphere was flooded with demands to repatriate him to Canada. This wave is reminiscent of a Soviet campaign to free Luis Corvalán from the "fascist regime" of Augusto Pinochet thirty five years ago. The scenario is strikingly similar. A "victim" held by "fascist regimes" this time run by Bush and Harper, and a public outcry for justice. Except for the fact that Luis Corvalán didn't kill anyone and didn't fight for a terrorist group that wants to impose Sharia.

The "repatriate Khadr" crowd describes him as "a child", "a kid", "a boy", and even "a torture victim", with no facts to substantiate the torture claims notwithstanding. They complain about Khadr being mistreated, again, without anything to back up their claims. Some of them are outraged about "child abuse." And they all scream for justice.

They want justice? OK, let's talk about JUSTICE. What about justice for Sgt. First Class Christopher J. Speer, who was (according to an eyewitness) murdered by this "child"? What about justice for Tabitha Speer, who is a widow because of this "kid"? What about justice for Taryn and Tanner Speer, who are left without a father by this "a boy"? And what about all those Afghani civilians and NATO troops who are a little bit safer because this "torture victim" is behind bars? How many of these "repatriate Khadr" hypocrites concern themselves with justice for real victims? In literally hundreds of posts, we couldn't find a single one.

One would ask, what is the reason for this idiocy? The answer is simple. Ignorance. Complete and utter ignorance. Let's forget for a second that Omar Khadr killed Christopher Speer. Let's forget that Khadr's father was an al Qaeda financier. Let's forget that Khadr's family is known for it being al Qaeda sympathizers. Let's just remember what this "child" was fighting for in Afghanistan.

This is what Taliban-imposed Sharia looks like in real life: http://muslimsagainstsharia.blogspot.com/2000/07/hypocrisy-of-repatriate-omar-khadr-to.html

Why don't all of you, bleeding heart demagogues go to Afghanistan and spend a day in a Taliban-controlled territory? And let's talk about Khadr when you get back. If you get back.

I agree with you to some extent, but you're forgetting that he WAS a child when he allegedly committed the crimes and he has been incercerated for the last 8 years. Torture or not, we have to repatriate him and guide him back to humanity, ie. reform him and show him a better way of living. If he proves to be obstinate, then we need to keep him incarcerated and under close supervision until such time as we can feel safe to allow him back into society. Just because his parents or family were crazy, doesn't mean we should punish a child for being taught, then following his crazy family's way of thinking. We need to fix this to for ourselves and to show the rest of the world that our way is better than theirs and we're better than them.

"he has been incercerated for the last 8 years"

Your argument is just as valid as your math
