Muriel Blair: Better to Die on your Feet than Live on your Knees

Get up, stand up. Stand up for your rights.

Canadians are in the midst of a pitched battle to save what’s left of their – previously – idyllic Ontario from the clutches of wind weasels like Next Terror.

STT gave one of their natural born leaders, Esther Wrightman a wrap up in this post.

Well, Muriel Blair is keen to encourage the growing band of Ontario’s anti-wind power fraud warriors.  Muriel has recognised that’s its better to die with your boots on than to succumb to the tyranny laid out by wind weasels and their parasites. Here’s Muriel’s manifesto for saving home and homeland.

Your silence gives consent

I believe, probably without justification, that I live in a democratic society.  One with freedom of speech, the right to peaceful assembly and the expectation that those who are elected to office are working with the good of all in mind.

In fact this is far from the truth, and I am beginning to understand that my freedoms and the freedoms of my fellow Ontarians are contingent on following the word of our (dare I say it?) criminal politicians.

Should you follow with sheep-like devotion the decrees handed down to you, you can wear the badge of freedom.  Should you believe the lies, whether they wear the green label or promises of a great economic future in the hands of Chinese-owned companies, then you will be afforded the freedoms that democracy boasts of.

But, should you question the actions and lies fed to the intubated masses, then you are targeted. Your rights and freedoms are no longer. Goose-step in time with the Gestapo’s, or be labelled and condemned to be one of the black sheep, destined to be known as a trouble-maker.

Keep in mind that I am referring to hard-working citizens.  Mothers, fathers, grandparents, community leaders, teachers and community volunteers. I am talking about people whose only flaw is that they care about how their communities look and feel. They care about what legacy their children and grandchildren will inherit. And they give a damn about their rights and freedoms.

Their homes are not just boxes to live in, but are the world where children are raised and loved, life is lived and memories are made. To these residents who choose to speak out, their homes and their lives are synonymous with their communities.

Make no mistake, greed and corruption are taking all this away — destroying the fabric of rural Ontario and rendering our province into a totalitarian state. Are my emails being monitored? Perhaps they are. Has fear gripped my heart? You betcha. The likelihood that I am under police surveillance is very real.

Even so, I cannot stand by and let injustice prevail. I need to speak out, and I need to move forward in my desire to protect my province from the economic catastrophe that will destroy all our communities.

I look to people like Malala Yousufzai, Eve Ensler, Martin Luther King, the Dalai Lama, Esther Wrightman, Marcelle Brooks — and everyone else who puts themselves out there to speak the truth. It’s often not comfortable.  It’s their honesty and genuine belief that they can make a difference that inspires me.

The comfort zone is a nice place, but nothing grows there.  Nothing at all. In fact, things rot in the comfort zone. Ontario is in that comfort zone right now.

I hope that everyone reading this finds their own Malala or Esther to inspire them to keep up the fight.

This fight will not be won without casualties.  Chatham Kent, Haldimand and now North Middlesex, to name a few. I say, let’s band together — we all know what’s happening and we all know that it’s wrong. (Even the Ontario Provincial Police who may be monitoring my emails, and Esther Wrightman’s, know it’s wrong.)  As my colleague Marcelle Brooks always says, “Your silence gives consent.”

Nothing could be truer than that statement.

Our blog, the Middlesex-Lambton Wind Action Group, may be loud, we may be obnoxious at times, but we’re honest and we’ve got nothing to hide. We are fortunate that we have fighters on board who are willing to stand up to what is wrong, and they inspire the rest of us to move forward.

Hats off, Muriel!

Tyranny is what you’ll get, when good men (and women) do nothing to stop it. Muriel isn’t about to let wind weasels destroy her home, her family or her community without an almighty fight.

More power to Muriel.


Paragon of courageous devotion to the rights of ALL men and women.

  1. This is one of the biggest and most corrupt scams, ever perpetrated. I can’t believe the crooked politicians have let it go on for this long….

  2. Martin Hayles says:

    It takes courage to stand up to the establishment and question it, and particularly question its integrity. Unfortunately the establishment has no integrity. It has to please too many masters. But, if nothing changes, nothing changes.

  3. Take out the words like “Canada” and “Ontario” and insert the name of any other Country, Province or State and you have the exact story for anywhere in the world. Keep up the fight!
