The Two Words That Destroyed Don Cherry

If there is one phrase that must be deleted from your copy of the Newspeak Dictionary before any others, it is “you people.” These two seemingly harmless words ended the career of Canadian hockey icon Don Cherry, as he has confirmed:

“Hockey Night in Canada” analyst Don Cherry said he believes he was fired Monday because of two words he used during his Coach’s Corner segment.

“It’s the two words, ‘You people’ — and you know people are very sensitive like that — that got me,” he said Tuesday night during an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News.

Context is required to make the two words lethal:

The popular, outspoken former coach drew criticism for complaining Saturday night that people in Toronto were being disrespectful by not wearing poppies to honor Canada’s fallen military heroes leading up to Remembrance Day. His words were viewed as a criticism of immigrants.

Even implied criticism of the hordes imported to displace the population of North America is forbidden. Criticism in the context of lack of patriotism is doubly forbidden. Speaking the words “you people” in such a context will end the career of even a legend like Don Cherry.

Presenting Cherry’s thought crime:

“You people … you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you can pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that,” Cherry said. “These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada, these guys paid the biggest price.”

What prior generation could have imagined living in a Canada where it would be forbidden to say something like that?

Moonbats must be delighted at Cherry’s downfall. Breitbart gives five reasons why:

1. Cherry Labeled the Canadian Left “Pinkos” and “Kooks”

2. Cherry Called Climate Change Alarmists “Cuckaloos”

3. Unashamed Support for President Donald J. Trump

4. Cherry Tells American Leftists to Stay Out of Canada

5. Unwavering Support for Canada’s Military and Veterans
