It sure seems like toxic leadership and a culture of sweeping garbage under the rug is doing a heck of a lot more damage to the CAF than these hate groups.

I've experienced people trying to use the system against me as a way to force me to give up my faith.

This didn't make a splash in the media because Sikh are fair game for harassment as long as you couch it in terms of liberalism, secularism etc.

That was my reaction EITS.

The first Orthodox Sikh was enrolled in 1986. He was not well received at that time. Since then CAF has made several changes to ensure its an inclusive military.

I would add that NO ONE is fair game for harassment for any reason no matter how you couch it.

That which does not kill me has made a grave tactical error.

And Newfies....

Common, everyone loves a good Newfie joke!

"A Newfie is hanging from a tree by one arm, how do you get him down?"

"That's easy!  Just wave at him"

 ;D

Also, Newfies basically make up the majority of the CAF, so like you can't really knock someone for making fun of them.  They are liable in turn, to get ganged up on!

Ok, so the Dutch, carnies and I assume Dutch Carnies as well as Newfies.

Anyone else?

Narnians?

What about what side we support on the Planet Cheron? (You really need to google this if you want to catch the reference...)

Every organization has implicit biases in operation. Here are some ideas about how to get around that:
