Must not offend Communists in Canada

We read:
"A new monument in Ottawa to commemorate the victims of some sort of oppression was approved by the National Capital Commission’s board of directors Thursday, but the decision has left those proposing the monument confused as to what, exactly, was approved. “We don’t really understand the decision at this point,” said Tim Egan of High Park Group, which is representing one of the groups behind the proposal. “We really do need to talk to our board to assess the implications.”

The title — “monument to the victims of totalitarian communism” — has already been changed once. In the first proposals, one by a non-profit group called Tribute to Liberty, the other by Open Book Group, it was to be called “monument to the victims of communism.”

After beginning discussions with the NCC in March 2008, the groups had back-and-forth discussions with a committee of experts who suggested that the title be changed because it could be perceived as “unduly critical of Canadians who might associate themselves with communism,” Egan said. The group then changed the name to include the word “totalitarian.” The title still did not sit well with the board.

Board member Adel Ayad said the name was troubling for its “very tight definition” and for the presence of the word “communism” in the title, as Canada has a communist party.

Why don't they simply call it,

"WE ARE A USELESS, IRRELEVANT, AND COWARDLY SOCIALIST NATION"

Why not say "Victims of Nazi Agression"? Oops, there are neo-Nazis in Canada so that might upset them as well. What a spineless bunch of cowards. Someone once wrote that the problem with being open-minded is that everything leaks out.

The Canadians should grow a pair and call the memorial what it is - a memorial to the victims of Communism. And back to hell with the communists offended!
