I guess this is, sadly, not very surprising:
In the Fox News segment, widely aired on the Internet, Mr. Gutfeld said the Canadian military “wants to take a breather to do some yoga, paint landscapes, run on the beach in gorgeous white capri pants.”
“Isn’t this the perfect time to invade this ridiculous country?” he said. “They have no army.”
“I didn’t even know they were in the war. I thought that’s where you go if you don’t want to fight — you go chill in Canada,” he said.
Four hearses carrying the flag-draped coffins of the latest Canadian soldiers killed in Afghanistan are receiving a police escort along the Highway of Heroes.
The deaths bring to 116 the number of Canadian soldiers who have died in the Afghan mission since it began in 2002.
No US ally has lost more troops in Afghanistan than Canada.
Update. I missed this part of the Globe and Mail piece the first time through:
Mr. Gutfield, who is also a Huffington Post blogger, author and magazine editor who previously had stints at the helm of Men’s Health, Stuff and Maxim UK, refused to reply to an e-mail from The Globe and Mail sent to his personal account requesting an interview (as well as a short game of Canadian trivia). Instead, he forwarded the message to a Fox publicist, who responded on his behalf.
I’m not the biggest fan of the HuffPost, but why on earth would they let someone like this clown blog there?
Update update. And here’s what Gutfield wrote in his Twitter account about the incident:
My apologies to the Canadian military, they probably could at least beat the Belgians.
