German (Mohawk wannabe) Shawn Brant who Canada has refused to keep off the streets led yet another blockade Sunday night. This time it’s the Skyway Bridge to Picton Ontario. The reasoning (and I use that term loosely) being a “protest of solidarity” with the Mohawks who took over the International border crossing at Akwesasne.
Brant was responsible for shutting down the 401 and CN rail line in June 2007, and is well known for giving a speech about attacking the infrastructure of our Country to further his agenda. He has twice been arrested but never charged with Terrorism for his actions which clearly meet the definition of the word in Canadian law.
The result of Canadian impotence in dealing with this overgrown spoiled brat is another occupation at a time when our government should be taking a strong stand against these actions, but instead is attempting to negotiate an end to the illegal occupation of an international border. The effect is an obvious and ever growing emboldening of these criminals who are spreading like wildfire.
The Turtle Island News reported this week that the group of organized criminals known locally as the Men’s Fire are readying themselves for an attack on Caledonia should Canadian officials attempt to enforce the law and reopen the international border at Akwesasne. Nobody has any reason to doubt this threat as this same group pulled a similar stunt last year in an effort to prevent the law from being enforced in Deseronto Brant was arrested.
The situation continues to escalate at a dangerous pace for one simple reason. It’s not failed negotiations, nor the arming of border guards at Akwesasne that are to blame, but the appeasement of Native extremists by the OPP, Ontario, and Federal Government who have bowed at the feet of these criminals for years and emboldened them at every turn. We have been trying to warn people for nearly 3 years now that this was an unacceptable strategy that would lead to nothing but trouble, and here we sit with two bridges now closed by Terrorists (one of which is a border crossing) and threats of more attacks on Caledonia pouring out of their mouths.
US officials have expressed to CANACE that they are not pleased with the unguarded border crossing and talk of having Marines guard the US side has taken place, but not yet materialized. These same officials have been in touch seeking all the information we have about the very real threat of another terror attack by Natives on the hydro station in Caledonia. Those of us in the area will remember being without power for several days in 2006 because these weaponized toddlers had a tantrum and sent a burning pickup truck into the station.
Brant claims to have 50 – 60 supporters blocking the bridge right now and news reports say the Tyendinaga Mohawk Police Service is currently monitoring the situation. There is of course no talk of actually enforcing the law and removing the occupiers from the bridge because that’s just not something that Canada does.
While none of us can predict what will happen next, I would wager that whatever it is will be another step in the wrong direction for Canada, and will embolden these already dangerously cocky thugs to new levels of anarchy.
