MNN. June 2 2009. In the US everyone needs guns. Canadians don’t need guns to protect themselves, yet! It is still different enough. Canadian society went hard against anyone that used guns in a crime. In the US if someone burglarizes, the home owner can shoot and kill them. In Canada guns can only be used in self defense. They always thought they could work things out.
Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, has taken on the US attitude where most enforcement agencies need guns to deal with criminals or the public, who will also need guns to protect themselves from the police. There are countless super violent standoffs in the US. This is being invited into Canada by Harper.
Harper wants to appear more masculine so that he is no longer just a sidekick of the US. To be the dominant party, he has to be as big and tough as Obama or Bush. He needs a macho image to compete with them. He needs a gun! Harper wants all enforcement agents to have guns. This idea is already expressed in many recent government legislation.
A truck driver in the US needs a gun to protect himself from being hijacked or killed. They used to get arrested when they crossed the border into Canada for carrying guns. They had to leave them behind. In Canada they still should feel safe. Things haven’t changed. It will always be a safe place even though Harper wants to change it.
What is the problem? It’s penis envy. In the minds of many men a gun is a phallic symbol which is a sign of masculinity and virility. This is untrue. If you get into a fight to defend yourself without guns, it requires a bigger person.
Harper was always fat and seen as the pudgy little studious nerd of the class, something like the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Everybody sees him as a wimp who wants to be in charge of all situations. He won’t let anybody around freely express themselves.
Harper, the sports trivia freak, was never good enough to play first string. He went into his closet and looked at all his hockey cards. That made him feel like a winner. His behavior is like a man who is concerned about the size of his penis.
Under capitalism a large penis is part of gender identity, a symbol of high masculinity, dominance and power. He became an economist. To him, money is power. Penis size is being popularized in the popular culture. It looks like Harper aspires to this. That’s why he is likely to have a picture taken of himself with a rifle in his hands to hang in every CBSA Customs building for every visitor to see. He is going put a Beretta in every border agent’s hand to let the world know that Canada has real macho men like him.
When it comes to masculinity, Harper thinks he always has to prove that he’s a man. Killing a deer and hunting for wild animals is a sign of the manhood he never had. He noticed this more when he left Canada, especially when he went to the US and visited so-called gunslinger, George Bush. We heard that Harper was afraid to get into the swimming pool and sauna with him where they would start comparing their jewels. He was scared of coming out second best.
This is an old trick U.S. President Lyndon Johnson used whenever he had guests at his ranch. He would dominate everybody by walking around in the raw, which scared everybody. Dick Cheney does the same but his looks like Haggis, a Scottish national food.
This is part of the macho image the Americans want to project to the world. Carrying guns is the epitome of being a real man. Harper bought into it. Now he wants to bring all Canadians into the sauna with him.
This is an American sickness that Canada cannot take part in.
With all that testosterone, the US is still in a state of collapse. Harper thinks he is going to rise up out of that and become the dominant control freak on Great Turtle Island. Canada thinks it can be a superpower by stealing the identity of the US.
Harper does not need to change Canada. As bad as it is, he should be himself. He does not need hormone injections, a personal trainer or a sun tan bed. Axe Body deodorant will not make them more appealing to women [Watch out! It’s full of toxins that lower the sperm count]. Male enhancement pills might help his personal life.
Buying powerful weapons of mass destruction is not going to make him more masculine. Canada must not become enraptured with war and guns. They proved themselves in both world wars. When the wars ended, they put their guns away and went back to the factories, farms and offices and carried on with a peaceful life. They have been influenced by the peaceful society that Dekanawida and the Rotinoshonnionwe developed. All countries of the world are aspiring to the peace embodied in the Great Law, our philosophy. Harper, go home and stop trying to be an American.

MNN June 3 2009. As long as we stand up for peace, democracy, human rights and sovereignty, we will win. We can’t be enslaved, even if the colonist war lords put guns to our heads. Historically, millions of us were killed for resisting subjugation.
We will not let them put guns in the middle of Akwesasne. Because we are standing up to tyranny our community is being held hostage. It’s still closed down. We still can’t get on or off unless we walk. A few cars are let through the police blockades.
War lords think all they have to do is hire heavily armed guards and police to beat us into submission. It’s not working on us or anyone else. Everyone is starting to stop bending to these monsters. The colonists have seen their bosses give themselves million dollar bonuses and raises. The whole capitalist machine is coming to a grinding halt.
We Indigenous have to be treated respectfully. If not, we will fold our arms, cross our legs, sit down, do nothing and say, “I’m not going to be moved”. For hundreds of years our colonial visitors have been watching us resist abuse. At first they were scared and resented us. They couldn’t stand to see us running around free and suffering the consequences. They wanted us to be in the cage with them. They learned we can’t compromise our will. Even they are starting to take on this spirit. “Treat me right or else”.
Megalomaniacs beating their employees doesn’t work anymore. They are going to lose everything, businesses, properties, companies and whatever.
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper made a promise in the last election to give border guards guns, to toughen laws against child molesters and keep young people in jail longer. He’s going to make everybody tow the line, so he thinks.
Harper is finding out that if he has no compassion, no one will back him up or work hard for him. It’s like beating a slave. If they refuse to obey, Harper says, “Put them in jail, take all their money and give it to the rich”.
He’s imitating Obama, who says, “If you can’t cut it, then starve to death”. If you’re poor, it’s your fault.
In the US, if you make it big, you can stomp everybody. Pop culture reflects this mentality. It’s fire them, kill them or knock them off the boat or island to drown in the water. Survival of the fittest and to hell with the losers! This self-centered attitude is destroying them.
The poor are starting to say, “I’m not moving”. No matter how hard you beat me, you can only kill me once. Our colonial visitors are getting stubborn like us against their oppressors. Rich guys’ factories are closing down, cars can’t be built and sweat shops are being closed.
GM, the largest company in the world, is going bankrupt. The workers refuse to be slaves anymore. They would-be slave owners did away with many unions so they could take advantage of the poor. People are not spending money, mostly because many don’t have it.
Like the Depression, the poor in the US and some parts of Canada are living in tent cities, slums and alleys. They are out of work with gaunt faces like a third world country.
Harper wants to import this social and economic disaster into Canada. Canadians think differently. They’ve been influenced by the Indigenous egalitarian philosophy in which people don’t threaten one another, try to work things out and help each other. In Canada there are more social programs and medicare.
A top Canadian Border Services Agency official has allegedly agreed to meet with us. They found they can’t dictate to us. Their union ordered the guards to walk off the job on June 1. Both US and Canadian border crossings have been shut down. It is so peaceful on Cornwall Island. Maybe it will stay that way for good. They think we are suffering because they cut us off from them. We don’t miss them at all!
CBSA president Stephen Rigby is still saying they intend to arm the guards no matter what. The Mohawks say never.
CBSA officers are willing to take cultural sensitivity training. We will teach them how to work without guns, how to smile at us and keep their slimy hands off us. Some guards at the customs building are "hotheads" and racists against us who try to provoke us into confrontations. Guards with guns will make some of them even more dangerous than they already are.
There are suggestions that the check points could be moved off Cornwall Island. Good idea!
Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan, whose oversees the border crossing, said arming of the guards will go as planned when the Mohawks agree to peacefully allow armed goons onto their territory. We know it’s all a Trojan Horse. They come in and sit inside the walls. While we’re asleep, the soldiers will come in and kill us. These people have already shown how much they hate us. Hundreds have been brutalized. How can anybody have that much hatred? It’s not our way.
Canada knows they can come over and talk to us anytime. Those affected by the bridge closing and the general public on both sides of the border see that the Mohawks are right. Canada doesn’t see that we represent all those everywhere who are standing up to tyranny. They are applauding us.
