Omar Khadr Quotes

A few quotes about Omar Khadr from some really pissed off Canadians and Americans, as well as a few quotes about our gorgeous Prime Minister, the one with the nice socks:

I don't care about the money. I'm interested in Omar Khadr not having it (Quote from Sgt Layne Morris, who was blinded in one eye in the Omar Khadr firefight).

Seeking money from the Canadian taxpayer is just a sign of continuing contempt for the country that Khadr has fought against.

Some Canadians built their wealth through hard work, some through investing, some through inheritance. Omar became rich because he has "rights."

What is most upsetting to Canadians is that when a Canadian soldier is killed or injured in battle the government provides a lump sum payment up to a maximum of $360,000. Despite this, Justin Trudeau is willing to provide millions to a convicted terrorist who actively sought to kill Canadian and allied soldiers.

Trudeau pays Khadr under the table to prevent the Speers family from getting justice.

Prime Minister Trudeau tried to hide the payout until someone had the common sense to realize that what they were doing was wrong and blew the whistle on him.

How backwards is this asshole, Trudeau? He has no accountability. Instead, blaming his failures on the opposition. He needs to apologize to the families who lost their loved ones. He needs to apologize to the people of America. And last but not least, he needs to apologize and give a refund to the the people of Canada.

Omar Khadr should be charged with treason, not given $10.5 million.

If we look at past payouts due to Charter violations by the Canadian government, terrorist rights are worth more than Aboriginal rights... A LOT MORE!!!

This is an absolute travesty.

AM I the only person that sees this for what it's worth? It shows the rest of Canada what a moron Trudeau is.

Trudeau just re-victimized Speer's widow by giving her 10 million reasons why it was OK to throw the grenade that killed her husband.

I've been in a state of perpetual awe since this Khadr news was announced. Can't believe this Prime Minister and his terrorist apologist groupies. Why am I forced to endure this torture?

Keeping people up at night isn't torture. It's uncomfortable, but it's not torture (Said in response to finding out that Omar Khadr's torture was sleep-deprivation).

It wasn't just sleep deprivation. He was forced to drink Dunkin Donuts coffee instead of Tim Horton's.

A few months of sleep deprivation? My children owe me a few million.

Not a few months - 21 days. 21 days of sleep deprivation prior to interrogation by CSIS officials. Not that Canadians detained him, or actually deprived him of sleep, or even requested he be sleep deprived. That they interrogated a terrorist prisoner knowing he had been sleep deprived. That - according to our supreme court - makes the Government of Canada as bad as the torturers, and liable for his torture. Like... what? I also like how the CBC cites the Arar case as comparable. Deportation resulting in imprisonment + torture = Omar fights jihad and gets thrown in Gitmo for it. Clearly Canada was responsible for Khadr deciding to be a jihadi - guess we weren't tolerant enough.

Nice hair

A lawyer for Omar Khadr says he's upset and disappointed somebody went public with the details of their mediation with the federal government.

Scummy lawyers were probably salivating the moment Trudeau was elected.

I'm sure Khadr's lawyers spent countless hours prepping him on how to seem likeable and say the right things in front of the media. And, it must have worked because there still are a handful of Canadians that have sympathy for this Al Qaeda Affiliate.

Khadr comes from a family of terrorists. His father, Ahmed Khadr, was a friend of Osama bin Laden and a leading fundraiser for al-Qaeda. Omar's older brother, Abdurahman Khadr, once told PBS he had grown up in an al-Qaeda family. That the family was able to immigrate to Canada is deeply troubling. While Omar Khadr was born in Canada, he did not show loyalty to Canada. In the choice between Canada and al-Qaeda, Khadr chose al-Qaeda. He chose Afghanistan. He chose to be loyal to bin Laden and he chose to be part of an Islamist terrorist army.

At no time did Omar make an honourable decision, then or now. At no time did he honour Canadian way of life or values, as others have. I believe what he did was done to earn "family honour" in the eyes of other terrorists/extremists. Now he gets this by showing them how to make money from his actions, as he hides behind technicalities.

We need to learn to protect ourselves from this form of abuse and put laws into place that ensure these abuses do not happen again.

Our rewarding him only reinforces our failure to educate him and others.

We need to make sure laws are passed so that his abhorrent abuse of our system is never allowed to happen again. If not, we insult every soldier who has defended us.

My past - I'm not excusing it. I'm not denying it. We all do things that we wish we could change. (Said by Omar Khadr)

I don't look at this as profiting. (Said by Omar Khadr)

All I'm trying to do is move forward and trying to turn a page. (Said by Omar Khadr)

Fuck You Omar Khadr



Omar Khadr's Charter rights were violated. Canadian officials questioned him while knowing that he was sleep-deprived. For this he got $10 million.

Omar Khadr does not deserve $10 million.

Wanna know what I think he deserves?

Omar Khadr deserves about $5000 in compensation, maybe some therapy, and maybe some vocational training to help him gain some skills to assimilate back into society.

That's it. Nothing more.

Wanna know how I can justify this amount of compensation?

Let's look at another example of a Charter violation by the Canadian government, just for comparison purposes...

Many years ago, the Canadian government forced thousands of Aboriginal students to go to residential schools. I'm not going to get into what this program was all about because that would take a while. But let's just say it was bad... to put it mildly.

Many of the Aboriginal students in the residential schools were routinely beaten, tortured, emotionally abused, and sexually abused. It was terrible. No child should ever have to go through anything like this. EVER! But they did. And, it was directly caused by the Canadian government.

Many years later, the Canadian government apologized for this atrocity and settled with the surviving Aboriginals.

What do you think the settlement was? How much do you think these Aboriginals received for the anguish caused directly by the Canadian government? You'd think it would be more than they gave Omar Khadr, given their degree of responsibility in the suffering that was created.

You'd think so, but you'd be wrong.

The surviving Aboriginal people received, on average, somewhat more than $10,000 each.

Given the precedent set with this example, and given Canada's role, Omar deserved about $5,000. That's my opinion.

So tell me... Why did Omar get $10 million? Somebody explain this to me. Somebody? Anybody?

If Omar Khadr received $10 million from Canada, then each and every surviving member of Canada's residential schools deserves to get $20 million, probably more. Give it to them, NOW!!!

Here's another opinion...

Canada eventually welcomed Omar Khadr back and gave him a safe place to live out the rest of his life. If I were in his shoes, I would be so thankful. I would want to give back. Are you really doing all of this for me, Canada? Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love you, Canada. What can I do for you? How can I return the favour?

But nooooo, Omar Khadr turned around and sued Canada. For this, pal, you are a piece of shit (Just kidding, Omar, you're not my pal).

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, sir, I think you really fucked up on this one. I used to like you. I don't anymore. Nice hair, though.

Our Gorgeous Prime Minister

Found this comment on Reddit:

I'm just going to leave this quote by David Bertschi, former Liberal leadership candidate and lawyer.

"Recent posts by wanna be lawyers and shrills for our gorgeous PM has left me perplexed at their ignorance (which seems to mirror the PM's and his advisers) or willful ignorance as to the Supreme Court of Canada's decision in 2010 and the current state of the law in Canada. Alternatively, as I am a reasonable person, it may also be a reflection of their incomprehensible adherence to think that their boy wonder PMJT and his entourage have any clue about the state of the law in Canada. Make no mistake I have and continue to advocate for the return of all Canadian citizens detained overseas. Their return abode however, if guilty of a crime would be to a Canadian prison.

It remains my opinion that the $10.5 million dollar payment by Justin , Butts and entourage was and remains politically motivated and that our PM and his advisers have publicly misquoted or referenced the Supreme Court of Canada' decision of 2010. As I just got home from a 14 hour work day at the office, I have chosen to quote a few key passages from a post written today by mayoralty candidate Beryl Wajsman of Montreal. Thank you Beryl. " The Trudeau government's decision to settle Omar Khadr's legal pursuit against Canada for the alleged violation of his sec.7 Charter rights protecting the "security and liberty of the person" is shameful in principle, distorts the 2010 Supreme Court decision upon which the Prime Minister claims to rely on, opens the door to the compromise of the very Charter protections he seeks to defend and potentially blocks the ability of the widow of the man Khadr killed to obtain redress under the 2012 Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act that allows for the collection of damages from U.S. judgments in Canadian courts.

Defenders of the government's decision claim that the Supreme Court's 2010 decision in Khadr's first legal salvos left Trudeau with no choice. The SCC's decision did nothing of the kind. The Prime Minister could have let Khadr's latest legal challenge run it's course instead of shaming Canada by settling out of court tacitly admitting this nation's "guilt" pre-emptively. It is a stain on this country and the memories of the sacrifices of our soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan.

The Supreme Court of Canada's 2010 decision came to three conclusions. First, the Charter does not apply to Canadians abroad. Yes, you read that right. This statement is the very opposite of what the Prime Minister claimed at the Hamburg G20 that the settlement could not be avoided because it was simply respecting the Charter. Khadr killed abroad. Second, the Court did decide however, that Canada violated Section 7 Charter provisions because Canadian diplomatic and security personnel participated in Khadr's questioning while in detention at Guantanamo and because Khadr was allegedly tortured (through sleep deprivation) by the Americans, Canadian authorities benefitted from information received as the "fruit of the poisonous tree." The Court did not find that Canadian autorities participated in any torture nor illegal detention.

But it was the Court's third set of findings that truly condemn the government's settlement. The Court ruled that the federal government had no obligation to request Khadr's repatriation. That imposing such an obligation would be "inconsistent with the framework of Canada's constitutional democracy and is not a judicial remedy within the powers of the courts. The federal government retains the prerogative power over foreign affairs, which includes making representations to foreign governments." The Court ruled that the prudent remedy was to declare that Mr. Khadr's rights had been violated on the technical grounds of Canadian authorities' participation in the questioning of Khadr but to allow the government to decide how to remedy that breach. It made no mention or recommendation of compensation at all. Quite the opposite.

The court made clear only that Canada has a constitutional duty to ensure that its officials do not participate in activities in foreign jurisdictions that violate Canadians' rights and values. Canada did not capture Khadr. It did not kidnap Khadr. It did not coerce any confession. It had no obligation to offer Charter protections abroad. It had no obligation to seek extradition".... Does this government truly want Canadians to believe that because Canadian agents participated in questioning Khadr that this was a tort worth $10 million to an admitted terrorist and killer? Families of Canadian soldiers killed in action have their compensation capped at $360,000. What does this say about this government's interpretation of Canadian values?

One cannot end a critique of this infamous act without addressing some of the platitutdes of political correctness that have been bamdied about. The first is that as a "Canadian citizen" Khadr was entitled to the protection of Canadian law. While the Supreme Court has already ruled that this is not true for Canadians abroad, let us remember that many western countries have passed laws stripping citizenship for those who join Jihadist terrorists as Khadr did in becoming a member of Al-Qaeda. The second theme we have heard and read repeatedly is that Khadr, being 15 at the time he threw the grenade, should be treated as a "children soldier." That expression is generally applied to pre-teens kidnapped and forced into murder by terror armies like Joseph Komy's in Central Africa. We have had cases of minors in Canada tried for murder as adults. There is a difference between legal minors and "child soldiers." The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child recognizes "child soldiers" as being under the age of 15. If Canada starts applying lenient definitions like "child soldier" to Jihadist killers, what moral authority does this country have left? In fact, what dignity does it have left? Al-Qaeda was at war with the UN coalition that Canada was part of and had named Canada as a target country. Khadr's choice to join Al-Qaeda was an act of treason even before he threw the grenade. And let us not forget that Al-Qaeda - operating under Sharia Law - recognizes adulthood at the age of 13. It is shameful that in Canada there has been little sympathy for the widow and children of Christopher Speer, the soldier Khadr admitted to killing who two days before his death had saved two Afghan children from Taliban brutality. Little mention that she has obtained a $102 million judgment against Khadr. Little mention that Khadr, rather than being summarily shot as a combatant by the American soldiers he had attacked, was actually nursed back to health by the medics of the squad. .................................................................................. In light of all this, the title of Alexander Solzhenitsyn's 1978 Harvard commencement address resonates hauntingly today. "What is the joy about?" he challenged. He admonished us that, "...the most striking feature in the West today is the decline in courage. The Western world has lost its civic courage, both as a whole and separately, in each country, in each government, in each political party and of course in the United Nations. Political and intellectual functionaries proudly exhibit self-serving rationales as to how realistic, reasonable and even morally justifiable it is to base policies on weakness and cowardice..."

Not much should surprise us anymore as we have become so immersed in the smug, self-satisfied double standards that allow us to wrap ourselves in comfortable cloaks of political correctness while ignoring the stark reality of the moral bankruptcy that surrounds us. Yet there are still events that should shock us out of our reveries and make us realize that if we accept the current human condition without protest or contest then each of us will be judged complicit in the degeneration of our societies which can no longer tell right from wrong."
