EVERYONE IS WELCOME AT THE NATIONS

This is Keenan Cahill, a guy who has taken more heat on the internet than 99% of the folks combined.

A 15 year old kid, he has become famous for singing along to his favourite jams on youtube via a webvam in his room and a hilarious need to perform. With a sincere desire to sing, he has received tens of thousands of mean commentary from the wags on the internet who are quick to hate on anyone they perceive as different.

Comments on Keenan's performances include gems such as these:

masonfurry1: u look like a giant baby

ParkerRosetv: Whats this kids problem?

ninjapanda4: i'm actually very sure that i'm going to have nightmares he creeps me out.

skigod222: You know when you were little and you saw someone who was retarded and your mom told you not to stare?? Well, YouTube lets you stare all you want..... But I do feel sorry for this little girl, it would suck to have down syndrome.

THAT'S THE INTERNET FOR YOU

We see similar drama on the Nation Network with comment battles on a daily basis. People on the internet are free to say whatever they want and more often than not this results in a million man rumble.

Do you think that your squad should make a trade? Do you consider a certain player to be below par levels for quality? Expressing your thoughts can often bring criticism from fellow Citizens of the Nation and writers alike.

We personally feel for these folks much like we pity poor Keenan. He sticks his neck out on YouTube on a regular basis and suffers slings and arrows from strangers by the thousands. Clearly not the best looking kid on the planet, he doesn't even know the words to half of the songs he is singing his heart out to on the interwebs.

At an age when most of us would be majorly concerned about what people have to say about us, he has the courage to ignore the hatred of his peers in favor of doing what he loves.

AND IN THE END THE INTERNET WINS

One of the great things about the Nation Network and the internet in general is that we run a (relatively) censor free zone. Everyone is free to speak their mind and provided they keep it clean and abstain from personal attacks they have a right to be heard.

KEEP ON KEEPIN ON

And so party on FIST movement. Keep on posting first time commenters. Don't even trip for a minute about whatever criticism you take from your fellow Citzens of the Nations. So long as you aren't raining slanderous criticism on people and stepping beyond the bounds of taste your point of view is as welcome and relevant as anyone else.

We are fortunate to have you spend even a moment of your time at our family of websites. All too often sites like these devolve into a handful of commenters dominating the conversation and hating on anyone new or with different opinions.

We think that is a bunch of nonsense. If you have the dedication to comment on an article and bomb out a "first" or a "fist" we should thank you for taking the time to chime in your two bits. Don't worry about what anyone has to say - get those opinions out there and let the conversation begin.

Everyone is welcome.

For in the end even our friend Keenan has fans out there. Take the introduction of this new brand new song for example, launched live by Keenan at the personal request of the author.

(if your time is at a premium you can fast forward to the 1:20 mark to see the vindication begin)

Welcome to the future.

Ya, that was a nice moment, I got a little misty-eyed.

Wanye, please make the links posted by commentors open in another window rather than have to copy, open a tab, paste, laugh, return to ON.

As long as someone put the html tag stuff around the link all you have to do in most browsers is CTRL+Click and it'll open in a new tab or window instead of warping you away frolm OilersNation

for those who don't know how, here is how you create a link

Horcoff for MVP of the year ? Team falls completely apart with Horc out of the lineup . Are we paying this guy enough FOR WHAT HE MEANS TO OUR CLUB AND ROOKIES ? Fraser reaps high praise on Horc being our best player and inspirational leader even above Hemsky . Maybe we don't give Horcoff full credit for what he does and means to our club ? Is Horcoff more valuable than even the coaches ? Team seems totally lost without his presence on the ice !

Well, if Horc comes back today and we get bombed again by the Devils , we can always go back to bad mouthing Horc and his contact. MVP is not all about just goals and assists . No doubt Horcoffs other attributes makes him more valuable than most seem aware of most nites . It's not often we praise Horcoff so it's time to do so , if only temporarily . He's earned it so far this season !

Dogs are cats, up is down, black is white. I am in complete agreement with madjam.

That sir... was horrible. I know exactly what you need to do with that FIST ronaldo, and it involves your own butt hole.

I get it, we's all welcome, unless we piss of Brownlee.

I am more of blues/roots fan than rap, but I gotta say 50 CENT moved up at least 50% in my opinion of him for that last clip (couldn't finish the first or even start the ones in between).

Nice stare down by 50 at the end, too. He must have practiced that.

(Correction ^)

"off" Brownlee, not "of" Brownlee.

That would make no sense at all.

Wayne, that was as compelling as Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech.

One day, comments from Rubbertrout, MadJam, Hemmertime, Uncle Pabst, Christopher Walken, Nate with or without hate, and that weird little kid with glasses and 50 Cent will join togeher in harmony, without fear of prejudice or our love of Shawn Horcoff.

Cheers all! Now let's bond together by agreeing on how crappy the Flames long-term outlook is, and how their fans must all suffer from stunted development due to impure drinking water!

Best site. Ever.

Darn good article.

I never liked 50 cent much but this was nice to see.

Horcoff is okay. I think most would agree he is doing half decent thus far this season and most of us realize while he is not an all-star he has great value to this team. Let him be.
