The Ghastly Bigotry of the Con Clown Larry Miller
In a country where a Prime Minister is fanning the flames of racism.
And his Cons are dividing up the country between "whities" and "brown people."
In a Canada where too many have forgotten that diversity is strength.
This is what you get, the Reform bigot Larry Miller.
A Conservative MP has apologized after saying women who want to wear the face-covering niqab during citizenship ceremonies should “stay the hell where [they] came from.”
“If you aren’t willing to show your face in a ceremony where you’re joining the best country in the world, then frankly … stay the hell where you came from,” he said.
You can listen to the interview here if you can bear it:
And you don't have to read between the lines to figure out that Bubba Miller is not really sorry.
In a statement released Tuesday, Mr. Miller said some of his comments were “inappropriate.” “I stand by my view that anyone being sworn in as a new citizen of our country must uncover their face. However, I apologize for and retract my comments that went beyond this.”
And neither is the PMO.
Carl Vallée, a spokesman for the Prime Minister’s Office, said Mr. Miller’s comments went “beyond our clear position.” Mr. Miller’s comments went further than Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who said last week that the niqab, a face-covering veil worn by a small minority of Muslim women in Canada, was “rooted in a culture that is anti-women.”
Because Larry is known as the Keeper of the Flame.
Believe it or not.
And here he is three years ago comparing the gun registry and its critics to the Nazis...
Which should tell you all you need to know about him.
And of course Stephen Harper and his racist gang aren't sorry because they know that most Canadians are on their side
Two-thirds of Canadians oppose allowing women to wear the face-covering niqab during citizenship ceremonies, a new poll by Forum Research suggests. The public opinion survey, conducted Friday and Saturday, found that 67 per cent of respondents oppose the idea, while fewer than a quarter (22 per cent) are in support. Ten per cent are undecided.
And they're hoping to ride this issue to another bloody majority.
And the good news?
So far at least it isn't winning them votes.
“We can’t say that the niqab controversy has damaged the Liberals, but it has clearly not helped the Conservatives. While Canadians agree the niqab has no place in citizenship ceremonies, they do not find it offensive, either to themselves or to the others,” Forum Research president Lorne Bozinoff said in a statement.
Bozinoff went on to say that given the niqab issue directly affects only a small number of Canadian women, it will be little more than a side issue in the general election this fall.
And since many new Canadians will interpret Miller's comments as also aimed at them, it may actually hurt the Cons in the next election.
So in the end this ghastly bigot will not get his reward...
But it is yet another reason we must get rid of him.
Before he torches our values further.
And degrades everything he touches...
