The Con Clowns Go After the Veterans Again
Oh no. Not Erin O'Toole. Not Stephen Harper's shiny tool. Again.
Why it seems like it was just yesterday that he was making an absolute fool of himself, claiming that marijuana doesn't help veterans with PTSD, and that it's dangerous.
Despite considerable evidence to the contrary.
Now he's going after veterans with PTSD again, claiming they're making misleading videos.
Calling it "seriously irresponsible," the veterans affairs minister is accusing a public service union of trying to deliberately mislead people with a new ad campaign about mental-health services for veterans. In the video campaign, the Public Service Alliance of Canada uses stories of veterans to highlight what it says is the impact of the closure of veterans' services offices in the past two years.
Even though the harsh facts speak for themselves.
An auditor general's report late last year said one in five ex-soldiers seeking mental-health care had to wait up to eight months for their application to be reviewed.
Even though wounded soldiers are still being treated in a cruel and bestial manner.
A decorated Canadian soldier who was released from the military for severe post-traumatic stress disorder has since been assessed by Veterans Affairs as having simple anxiety, making access to benefits and services more difficult.
And even though the videos O'Toole is honking and squealing about couldn't be more truthful or more powerful...
And if O'Toole had a shred of decency in him, he would listen to those veterans instead of his depraved leader...
But of course he is his shabby shuffling Con tool, who would dare to suggest that the humble videos of others are misleading
Unlike their filthy porky propaganda...
Because they do have gazillions of dollars of OUR money to spend on brainwashing us, but not a few million to help repair the shattered brains of some of our wounded veterans.
And the good news?
We will use all of this against them on the campaign trail.
We will join with the veterans to defeat them.
And we will fire both of them...
