Holy inquisition. What Harperland Voodoo is this?
David McGuinty is being
Ontario Liberal MP David McGuinty apologized Wednesday and resigned his post as the party’s natural resources critic after he said Alberta MPs need to take a nationwide view of energy policies or go home.
While the Cons wank themselves into a frenzy, or swing from the rafters of the House of Commons like a pack of horny monkeys with blue behinds, so inflamed is their outrage.
Well, of course, happy and outraged. Deeply, terribly outraged. Yes, yes, incredibly outraged. Profoundly saddened even. So immensely outraged, in fact, that the Immigration Minister was sent out after the meeting of the Conservative caucus to specially address the matter. And no less than four Conservatives—each of them an Albertan who could claim a personal affront—were sent up before Question Period to variously fume.
Or so PHONY.
Macaca. Macaca. Somebody throw them a banana. What a tempest in a tar pond.
For let's face it eh? The blessed martyr McGuinty may have been a bit premature by wishing the Alberta Cons would take a hike BEFORE we crush them in the next election. But everything else he said was bang on.
The Cons from the ridiculous one-party state of Alberta, are as provincial as they come, and as greedy, selfish, and arrogant, as their redneck cousins from Texas.
For the last forty years they have been badmouthing people in the rest of the country, and sacrificing pancakes to their Cowboy God demanding that he let the Eastern Bastards Freeze in the Dark
In Ottawa, as the ongoing cap-and-trade saga demonstrates, the rhetoric, of West vs. the Rest lives on. The “job-killing carbon tax” line is nothing if not a dog whistle to westerners still fearful of Ottawa’s grubby hands. That the line itself is baldly hypocritical isn’t really the point. As long as Conservatives believe there are votes to be won, it’s worth poking ancient regional wounds.
Nobody has played the politics of alienation and division as loudly and as aggressively as they have.
They don't call their mad emperor "Ol Firewall" for nothing eh?
And now as they kill jobs all over the country with their out of control Big Oil policies and their Made in Alberta Dutch Disease, or sell us out to foreign interests, or prepare to shove a pipeline up the ass of British Columbia.
Or offend us in so many other ways with their Big Lies, their religious fanaticism, and their bully behaviour.
The two votes marked the current tone in the House, where the partisan rancour is becoming increasingly toxic... Several backbench MPs heckled Morin and the NDP with shouts of "Bullies! Stop bullying us!" as they left the House after the vote.
Still they expect us to LOVE them? And are surprised when we don't?
Liberal leadership front-runner Justin Trudeau is under heavy political siege for saying two years ago that Albertans were not doing a good job of running the country.“Canada isn’t doing well right now because it’s Albertans who control our community and socio-democratic agenda. It doesn’t work,” Trudeau said.
Oh boy. I realize that Harperland is a parallel universe. And that the truth is what 'Ol Firewall" says it is.
But in the real world the truth is Alberta is NOT The West. We don't need to waste any time trying to win the hearts and minds of the monkeys with the blue behinds, in that reactionary one-party state. Because we will win the next election by uniting the rest of the country AGAINST them.
And David McGuinty and Justin Trudeau were just saying what millions and millions and millions of Canadians feel.
We really do hate those ghastly Cons.
And can't wait to send them back to Alberta...
