    I was reading through the comments below a Global news Youtube piece and this person's comment caught my eye. I don't quite get what the guy's overall point is, but the portion I have hilighted in red I agree with 100%:

    Support of Mr. Cherry is so disingenuous. This has nothing to do with "values", criticism, or free speech. Immigrants are not a monolithic group. They're comprised of many people from many different nations, beliefs, races, etc. You can't fairly criticize a person or people for the actions of others who have nothing in common other than they came to Canada. Something that nobody is mentioning here. That along with the fact: How did he, or this veteran who told him, know who was an immigrant not wearing a poppy and who was a native born Canadian not wearing one?

    Nothing in common other than they came to Canada. I think that pretty much nails it. Don Cherry recognises the wearing of poppies as a Canadian tradition, and he is fighting to preserve it. Who gives a shit. Piss on Canadian traditions and values. Nothing in common other than they came to Canada. Things like national anthems, the national flag (and the respect it deserves), 100 year old traditions like proud wearing of poppies should serve to promote unity amongst our citizens. Instead, every time some special interest group bitches about our national anthem, they change the lyrics to something "less offensive", our Prime idiot parades around with a rainbow Canadian flag, and Cherry is out of a job. Welcome to Canada: an area on the map that used to be a glorious unified country but is now rapidly filling up with terrific people who have nothing in common other than they came to Canada.

      Heres a post the wife showed me. If "they" truly believe Don should have been fired, then so should a shit ton more including gutless/worthless shameful Ron McLean.

        So, soemone deffending our military gets canned, but someone disrespecting our flag is "a role model"?

        Don was on the news this morning, admitted he made poor choice of words but isnt apologizing. You people was aimed at anyone not wearing a poppy.
        We are all immigrants, except for the indigenous people.

                In my opinion yes she sure should be fired. Her comments against us fine Canadians make my skin crawl. Kim

                  Cant stand shows like that, 4 fn drama queens sitting around in a sewing circle after sitting in a makeup chair for 2 hours. Slap every one of them in there c-suckers.

                    Gave it my best shot but 30 seconds was all I could take of those bellyaching c**ts.

                    Funny how DC has been called a million different things over this but still haven't heard him called a liar or even wrong. None of our FAKE NEWS gives a shit about facts either and won't go anywhere near the truth.

                    And if that was just 2 hours, maybe tomorrow try 4. Extra hardener in the Bondo.

                    Cancelled my Sportnet package yesterday - took that long to get through to the Shawbots.
