Writer is just another bleeding-heart Liberal

Re: “Guest Column: Human rights are for everyone,” Sept. 6

Elizabeth Strange is right; human rights are for all humanity. Omar Khadr has no conscience, as shown by his actions to kill any allied soldiers or any civilian happening by. No Canadian or anyone else on Earth would do this.

So his rights as a human are forfeited and he should be treated as such, and all terrorists the same. They operate outside of human law so why should they be judged by human law?

The column writer is the personification of the bleeding-heart Liberals. The previous government could not stand to cause every dead soldier to roll over in their graves and every living one to question their purpose.

My original question still stands: How did an avowed terrorist get Canadian citizenship?

    To answer your question about citizenship, he was born in Canada on September 19, 1986. And I have no comment related to any other matter with this case.

    Reg, you just displayed a complete lack of human empathy, compassion, and a willingness to completely disregard your own nation’s charter of rights and freedoms when it suits your political agenda, what does that make you? Human, sure, but certainly not Canadian in my estimation. Just because you can’t be bothered to see life from another persons perspective doesn’t make that other person an animal to be culled, when in fact Omar Khadr is just as Canadian as you are.
    That’s the great irony that a lot of conservatives openly display these days: you spend an inordinate amount of time complaining about people trying to escape third world dictatorships, while suggesting this country be run just like one. I’d be willing to bet that you and Khadr’s father have a lot in common.
    I’m so thankful younger generations are finally taking political office.
