Alas, it looks like Mark Steyn, Ezra Levant and all us other “free speechers” (boo!) were wrong after all: Canada really is a hotbed of hatreds and we’re just one incident of “hate speech” away from going Rwanda!
Nearly 5,000 people joined the online campaign which urged members to “get them steel toes ready” for a day of booting this week.
The website appears to have been inspired by a recent episode of the cartoon South Park, in which a young character called Cartman describes people with red hair as evil and soulless.
Dozens of children left messages on the page claiming to have carried out attacks on “National Kick a Ginger Day” on Thursday, and a girl in Alberta, Canada claimed that she and her 13-year-old sister were punched and kicked by pupils at their school.
The 14-year-old boy from Vancouver who ran the Facebook group has apologised and insisted that it was only meant as a joke, but the Royal Canadian Mounted Police has launched an investigation and warned that those involved could face charges.
“We do treat this sort of thing seriously,” a police spokeswoman told the Vancouver Sun newspaper. “This is sort of inciting hate. It’s a hate crime, really.”
Some Canadian schools had appealed to students not to take the Facebook group seriously, as word of the campaign spread across the country.
Ironically, National Kick a Ginger Day fell during Canada’s bullying awareness week.
A rival Facebook group called “Who Thinks Kick a Ginger Day is stupid” has attracted just 365 members.
Funny, the RCMP doesn’t “take it very seriously” that their fellow government employees at the Human Rights Commissions stole some innocent woman’s wi-fi internet connection and used it to make racist comments during one of their intrapment/shakedown schemes.
No, going after 14 year old boys and their Facebook groups is REALLY how the RCMP needs to spend our tax dollars.

Plus we’re gonna need a steel toed boot registry, pronto — with an all out ban in the 416 area code.
Performances of the songs “These Boots Were Made for Walking” and “Singing in the Rain” will henceforth be forbidden on the premises of all Canadian schools.
Expect the Lying Jackal to produce a cellphone photo of the words “redhedz = DIE!” magic-markered on a washroom stall in 3… 2…
PS: “Ironically” — it’s the new “intentionally”!
