You are our neighbors
We are your neighbors
and we hate you
You do not belong here
You are different than us
We don't just want you to leave
We want to kill you
We want to eradicate you
We will attack you
When you retaliate
we will crumple to our knees
and cry to the world
Look at our neighbor!
Our neighbor is trying to kill us!
Then the world will rush to our aid
because the world fears us.
The world fears what we might become
You must learn to fear us.

    Wow Tim, and all you say here is so true. I've been dumbstruck reading things about the new world order and racial hatred is one of the things in place and encouraged by these people to keep our minds busy. You should check it out, I was dumbfounded. This describes exactly what the agenda is. Wow!

    The way that Canada has treated First Nations people is our dirty secret.. disgusting, horrible. Right now, one of the chiefs has just ended a hunger strike at our Nation's capital. All to have a meeting with our PM. First Nation peoples are living in horrible conditions. We are failing as a society by turning our backs on those who were here first... and deserve apologies and restitution... hugs to you Tim. Happy new Year!
