Vikileaks and the Great Distraction
I was disappointed to see Bob Rae apologize to Vic Toews today for the Vikileaks campaign.
Not because of the apology itself, which was the decent act of a decent progressive. But because he didn't ask Toews to also apologize unequivocally for calling opponents of the fascist bill C-30 supporters of child pornographers.
Which was far worse than anything that Liberal staffer did. Especially since Toews still hasn't apologized for that filthy slur, continues to defend the bill and rewrite history.
But what really annoyed me was that so many in our idiot media spent so much time today comparing the Vikileaks episode to the RoboCon scandal.
Any way you look at it, this has been a bad stretch for the Tories. Not only is the opposition furious, but the generally sleepy Canadian public has seemingly roused itself and started to pay attention. And then a Liberal staffer came along and made it all better.
So ends the mystery of Vikileaks, but at the cost of robbing the Liberals and Mr. Rae himself of much of their fiery indignation over the allegations of impropriety that have recently slammed the Conservatives.
Which it total unadulterated bullshit. For while Vikileaks may have embarrassed Toews, it was not illegal, and should not be mentioned in the same breath as this criminal attempt to steal an election.
For now there can be no doubt that this was not the work of a few rogue Cons, but a vast conspiracy to undermine our democracy.
The good news is I'm confident that most Canadians will see it that way, and that if Elections Canada and the police do their job, judges will eventually order that new elections be held in some or all ridings.
And that some Cons will end up in jail where they belong.
The great distraction will not work. Liberals who think it will should relax and get a life. I mean Holy Miss Manners what planet are they on?
Vikileaks was an incredibly popular stunt. It served a useful purpose. Vic Toews deserves all he got, the horny old bigot hypocrite who would turn us into a police state.
Vikileaks will soon be forgotten.The RoboCon investigation is just beginning.
And sooner or later it will destroy the Cons...
