The Tea Bagger Tim Hudak and the American Invasion
Damn. What a happy coincidence. Last night I was complaining about how the Liberals and the NDP were failing to go after Tim Hudak for his botched million job plan.
And for his connections to American right-wing extremists like the sinister Koch brothers, in whose think tanks that plan was hatched.
But today the Liberals came through on both fronts.
By releasing a video to let people know that Hudak can't count...
The brutish oaf.
And by making it absolutely clear where his wacko plan came from.
Tim Hudak turned to leading lights on the American right – from Tea Party-linked think tanks to anti-tax crusaders – in his effort to craft an unabashedly small-government platform.
The itinerary, previously obtained separately by The Globe, lists meetings with Grover Norquist, famous for getting most Republican legislators to sign a promise not to hike taxes; Chris Edwards, director of fiscal policy at the libertarian Cato Institute; and labour expert James Sherk at the Heritage Foundation, a think tank led by a former Tea Party senator.
Making it clear that it was Made in America.
And revealing the ghastly gila monster Tim Hudak to be, as I have described him.
A creature of the Koch brothers...
Because although the Globe reporter somehow managed to write that whole story without mentioning their names.
The American economist Benjamin Zycher who "analyzed" Hudak's plan works for the American Enterprise Institute...
Which is heavily funded by the brothers.
Chris Edwards, who believes that killing government jobs creates prosperity, and described Hudak as a "good listener", works for the Cato Institute.
Formerly known as the Charles Koch Foundation.
Grover Norquist is the founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform which is also believed to be heavily funded by the Kochtopus.
And is best known for this quote:
"I'm not in favor of abolishing the government. I just want to shrink it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub."
And they are not as the Globe article suggests, bold visionaries of a brighter smaller government. They are right-wing Republican extremists, part of a vast conspiracy to cripple government, kill unions, drive down wages, deny climate change, destroy medicare and turn most of us into helpless slaves, while the rich get richer and richer.
They have now clearly decided that Canada should be their next target. Because as you know the Koch brothers have a keen interest in this country.
And the fact that Tim Hudak has just become the first Canadian politician to campaign on their platform is not something that can be shrugged off or celebrated.
“It’s quite remarkable: We’re seeing a tough budget during a campaign,” said University of Moncton economist Donald Savoie. “If Hudak is successful, there’s a message for all politicians, that Canadians may be far readier for this than we assume.”
It's a huge story, it's a scandal, it's a threat to our country and its values, it's an American invasion, and it's practically TREASONOUS.
And the good news?
When combined with his bogus plan to create jobs, and his very real plan to kill 100,000 good government jobs it should help destroy the ghastly gila...
Yup. Bring on the attack ads.
I can't wait to make mine eh?
This should be as easy as shooting a tea bag in a tea cup.
Tim Hudak is as dumb as a spoon.
He is working for the Koch brothers.
And he would turn us into Amerika...
