Courage is at a premium these days. Few people are willing to take stands that might endanger them or even involve them in something “controversial.” Leftist and Islamic supremacist jihad enablers take advantage of that fear and do everything they can to render every opponent of jihad terror too “controversial” to be heard in polite society. Meanwhile, jihad murders make all too many people cower in fear and curtail their activities. Major Sinke is an exception. Hats off to him.
“Retired Marine gets threats after guarding Canadian war memorial,” by Jeff Schogol, Marine Corps Times, November 4, 2014:
Retired Marine Maj. “Fox” Sinke says he has received threatening phone calls from Arabic speakers since he stood guard at Canada’s National War Memorial last week.
But as he told police: “If they’re looking for a fight, they came to the right guy.”
Sinke said he received at least two phone calls on Tuesday from people who screamed at him in Arabic and then hung up.
“The only words I recognized were ‘kill you,’ because I’ve heard them before,” he said.
When Sinke told police about the phone calls, he added, “I promise you this: If they come here, they’ll die here.”
Sinke is a decorated veteran who did tours in Vietnam and received five Purple Hearts. When Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, a Canadian service member, was shot and killed last month while guarding Canada’s war memorial, Sinke felt obligated to honor the fallen hero.
“The murder of the young Cpl. Cirillo was so despicable and craven that I just couldn’t find it within myself to do nothing,” said Sinke, a dual Canadian-American citizen.
So Sinke, who lives in Canada, donned his Marine uniform and sword and went to the memorial to stand guard on Friday. He told local media that he came to pay tribute to fallen comrade in arms and he wanted to show that Canadians will not be intimidated.
He also had a message for would-be terrorists: “I said, ‘Hey, you’re looking for a target, here’s a new one for you; give it your best shot; we’ll see how it works out for you.’ ”…
