Brad Trost and the Zombie Threat
Holy jumpin' Joan of Saskatchewan !!! I gotta give the Con wingnut Brad Trost some credit eh? Not only does he look FABULOUS in a dress. I hear he's declared a holy redneck jihad against Great Ugly Leader.
“The battle over the IPPF continues. Pro-Life politicians have been taught a lesson. The government only responds to Pro-Life issues and concerns when we take an aggressive stance. We will apply this lesson.”
And not only that he's calling him a left-wing extremist !!!
Speaking to CBC's Evan Solomon, host of Power & Politics, Trost said the government should "take a position that's at least moderate, rather than the extreme left position that we're taking."
Look, I don't know whether bubbah Brad is an uber right-wing extremist, or mentally ill, or an idiot. Or all of the above.
But what I do know is that he is a real threat. And I wouldn't dismiss him as lightly as JJ does.
Because the fact is Stephen Harper and his Cons depend on their rabid zombie base to keep their war room dollars coming. They will depend on them even more when the subsidies to political parties are phased out.
And since Harper can't use the excuse of a minority government to keep them in line anymore, he will have to offer them more than just hope.
He will have to throw them some big juicy bones. And if not abortion, how about defunding the CBC? Like Trost demands on his website.
Because in that regard him and his Con zombies just got a big juicy down payment.
Heritage Minister James Moore wants to slash CBC’s budget by 10 per cent, The Huffington Post has learned.
Although a government decision is far from complete, Moore has discussed his wish to see the public broadcaster’s $1.1-billion allocation cut by ten per cent, sources said. Moore had earlier this summer suggested the CBC could face a cut of "at least 5 per cent."
Just a few weeks ago it was five per cent, then Trost began riling up the base, and now it's TEN. Or one hundred million dollars. Four years of that and the CBC will be lying face down in a pool of blood. Along with many other Canadian institutions that we love, but they hate so much.
Yup. Some Canadians are sleepwalking to disaster with their eyes wide open. But I'm not one of them.
I know the Con zombies are on the march. Looking for blood.
Harper will be forced to feed them, and his own demons.
The nightmare is just beginning ...
And it will be HORRIBLE...
