Raffi: No Nukes In Space
Few days ago the NDP sent out a release asking "What do Jack Layton, Pierre Berton and Sarah McLachlan have in common?" Just now getting a chance to read it (too busy in the interim thinking of snarky answers to that question).
Apparently, the common thread the NDP had in mind was an opposition to America's latest attempt to weaponize space.
Other Canadian musicians who hate Star Wars II as much as they hated Star Wars II and have signed an open letter to Paul Martin voicing their displeasure: Bryan Adams, Steven Page, Bruce Cockburn, Susan Aglukark, Stompin' Tom Connors, and, most importantly, beloved children's entertainer Raffi. Whose last name is apparently Cavoukian (hmm... is that Afghani?)

Kinda makes ya think twice about Baby Beluga, don't it?

"Baby Beluga in the deep blue sea,
Swim so wild and you swim so free.
Heaven above, and the sea below,
And a little white whale on the go."

Baby Beluga is clearly an anarchist. "Swim so wild?" That's the kind of world Raffi wants. One in which terrorists and evildoers and their nukes can "swim so free" across our borders. And "Heaven" above, eh? Raffi? And I guess there's no room for weapons up there in this "heaven" of yours. And this whale swimming "so free." How will this whale feel when rogue nations are attacking the "deep blue sea" because America didn't have weapons in "heaven" ready to protect him. Huh? What then? Not "so free" anymore are we Raffi?

"Baby beluga, baby Beluga, is the water warm?
Is your mama home with you, so happy."

Warm, eh? Warm with the vile ignorance of anti-Americanism? And sure "mama" is happy now. But what about when the communists start lobbing missiles at that home. Not so happy then, huh? Of course, if we had a missile defence shield she could remain happy, safe in the knowledge that those heavenly weapons were there to protect here.

"Way down yonder where the dolphins play,
Where they dive and splash all day,
The waves roll in and the waves roll out,
See the water squirting out of your spout."

Dolphins? Who are these dolphins? How do they feel about the United States? Have you ever heard them quote from the Koran? Where can we find these "dolphins?"

"When it's dark, you're home and fed,
Curl up snug in your water bed.
Moon is shining and the stars are out,
Good night, little whale, goodnight."

Stars. See, those heavenly missiles would just be like stars. Bright, shiny, twinkling stars that could rain down fire and horror upon anyone who would disturb your "water bed."

And look at this! Raffi has been lying to our children! He's whitewashed whale history! Baby belugas aren't white! "The young are slate-grey to reddish-brown which changes to blue-grey at 2 years of age." Ha! See!

How long will the Liberal media ignore this clear and present danger to our national security?

We'll be watching you Raffi. If that is your real name.
