Sigh someone got their knickers in a knot for someone proclaiming exactly what they are.

Mod edit -- Just added a bit to the title to make it clearer.

Infidel vs Canadian Infidels.

Am I missing the word Canadian or even a maple leaf in that tattoo?

I'll tell you right now, there's alot of caf members with an "infidel" tattoo.
And Tshirts, and bumper stickers, and back window stickers.


Should we ban proud to be Canadian tattoos?  ::)

I assume that, as we speak, there are legal defence teams scanning the internet for photos of Senior Officers in the CAF wearing the (almost) ubiquitous 'Infidel' morale patch on their combat uniforms...

Since this isn't touching on a specific op, just moved this into a more general military news thread.

Please continue, folks ...

... and, for the record, here's an image of the tattoo in question for reference, in case it disappears elsewhere.

That is the Tattoo they are complaining about?

:rofl:

On another note, I've been rewatching the Sopranos which is widely considered a masterpiece and one of the greatest TV series of all time.  With the militant political correctness that exists today, would that show even be able to be made today?

Interesting commentary as well from Dan Houser (the creator of the GTA video game series):

https://m.ca.ign.com/articles/2018/10/24/dan-houser-thankful-not-to-be-releasing-grand-theft-auto-6-right-now

The prospects of a new GTA being released appear increasingly unlikely as Houser doesn't think he can satirize the game with today's political climate.  GTA 5 was the number three selling video game of all time behind only Tetris and Minecraft.

We are living in a very strange time of censorship and are becoming less free as a society.

Just wait until some special group decides that our GCS-SWA medals represent a war of racism, and colonial oppression, then demands take them off lol

We then identified the sailor and the chain of command is now investigating,” says Major Mark Gough, Senior Public Affairs Officer, Maritime Forces Atlantic Headquarters.

Why the need for an investigation?

If I was a civilian in a Nova Scotia Tim Hortons just itching to cry about something and seen a sailor with a infidel tatoo my first thought would be why the hell doesn't Canada have an aircraft carrier and fancy carrier group. Or even just some cruisers and destroyers to really kick ass on the high seas.

Because it's easier then leading?? :whistle:

It's easier than having the entire CAF accused of wrongthink, resulting in Deschamps V2.0.

With a CAF comprised maily of white males I'm sure you can imagine how that would work out...
