It's Nazi season in Canada! From the "controversial" flag in Saskatchewan to the neo-Nazi working in an Ontario city hall, Canada's working hard to normalize racism. And Mark Norman apparently had it worse than Omar Khadr. Who was in Guantanmo Bay. As a minor.

CORRECTION: A section of this show claims that Canada “sent” Omar Khadr to Guantanamo Bay. Whatever delayed actions the government took, it did not send Mr. Khadr to the detention facility. We regret the error.

CLARIFICATION (5/23/19): Jesse describes Kevin Johnston as an “Internet personality of the Faith Goldy, freedom talkin’, anti-Islam, intellectual dark web variety…”. The ‘Intellectual Dark Web’ is a term commonly used to refer to a group of academics, writers and commentators including Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris and Dave Rubin. While their ideas may be attractive to figures like Goldy and Johnston, and though it may be fair to compare the “IDW” to the alt-right, the two should probably not be conflated or presented as the same thing.
