Please stop amplifying this old ass racist. This site is better than that.

Looks like the video has been pulled from both sources.

from CTV,

Hockey commentator Don Cherry is in the limelight yet again, this time for complaining that he rarely sees people he believes to be new immigrants wearing poppies ahead of Remembrance Day.

The 85-year-old Cherry said on Saturday on his weekly Coach’s Corner segment as part of Hockey Night in Canada that he’s less frequently seeing people wearing poppies anymore to honour fallen Canadian soldiers—and he singled out those he believes are immigrants in Toronto, prompting a swift online backlash.

“You people ... you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you can pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that,” Cherry said. “These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada, these guys paid the biggest price.”

Among the online responses was one from Paula Simons, an independent senator from Alberta.

“Hockey is for everyone”

Except crap like this says the league and at least some of its primary media outlets don’t really believe that.

Long past time to get this clown off the air.

I’m going to guess Cherry doesn’t even understand why his comments are racist. Any other person in the public eye would be held somewhat accountable and be force to apologize, get fired or resign. But because Cherry is an “icon”, he gets another pass.

Cherry might garner some viewers but I have to wonder how many do it just like go to hockey game to see a fight. Do they really need viewers that bad. Howard Cossell was entertaining as well but when he crossed a line, it was over and MNF survived. How many times has Cherry now crossed the line.

This isn’t about political correctness. This is about being a decent human being. Cherry is a xenophobe plain and simple. Canada has a proud tradition of welcoming immigrants. It should build on that, not the racist, xenophobic rants of an “entertainer” who has had more than enough spotlight.
