The Con Clown Rex Murphy's Ghastly Anti-Trudeau Campaign
Once upon a time I used to fly though the air like Peter Pan in search of the remote control, whenever the ghastly Rex Murphy popped up on my big TV.
In a desperate attempt to change the channel, before his oily fumes started pouring out of every orifice, and before that scary bulging eye started following me around the room.
But now I just sit there staring numbly at the screen and wondering: why is that Con teabagger on the CBC? Is this Canada or Trumpville?
And this is just the latest reason why I think he should be fired.
Because while I have numbed myself to his insane climate change denier rants. And I can cover my eyes and ears when he starts rambling on about Pamela Anderson's breasts or Madonna's whatever.
And while I've almost forgotten that he once advocated invoking the notwithstanding clause to deny gay Canadians their human rights, or their right to get married.
Or the way he made a beast out of himself during the hideous niqab debate...
When he went after yet another marginalized group in a manner that can only be described as shameless and cowardly.
It seems to me that when goes on TV to promote a controversial pipeline, while being paid big bucks by Big Oil to give speeches glorifying their dubious achievements, it is a clear conflict of interest.
Even by the CBC's notoriously lax standards.
No conflict should exist or appear to exist between the private interests of CBC/Radio-Canada employees and their official duties. Employees must not use their positions to further their personal interests.
Because can anyone deny that the more Murphy promotes Big Oil, the more money the grateful grease monkeys will be willing to pay him?
So it is a conflict of interest, and the fact that the CBC's hapless managers can't seem to see that, makes me wonder whether they are really that dumb, or whether they are still under the thumb of their Con overlords.
Which is absolutely appalling, but certainly does help explain how a scandal like this one could happen.
Because neither that scandal nor the Murphy scandal could have happened, if those CBC managers weren't so hopelessly incompetent and/or unethical.
And so willing to give bullies the blind eye.
And then there's that other problem. The fact that ever since Justin Trudeau was elected, Murphy has used his bully pulpit at the CBC and at the National Post to attack him in the manner that would make Ezra Levant envious.
For where once his hate it was merely systematic, now it's hysterical.
And one has to wonder whether Murphy has found a new gig for himself as the unofficial but high profile spokesman for the Harper/Ambrose Party...
And what that might do to what's left of the CBC's sagging reputation.
So yes, I think it is time to take back the CBC, or put the Canada back in the Conservative Broadcasting Corporation.
The Con board should be given the boot.
So should at least half of its useless managers.
And the ghastly Con teabagger Rex Murphy should be fired tomorrow...
