If by chance you've never heard of the Con MP Cheryl Gallant, this is all you need to know:
She's a religious fanatic, and a brutish anti-gay bigot. She told wounded soldiers suffering from PTSD that any stigma was in their heads. She has compared abortion to a terrorist beheading.
She called Atlantic Canadians who earn their living on the sea ninnies, for depending on the Coast Guard to rescue them. She calls environmentalists plant eaters. And she regularly compares the Liberals to the Nazis.
So she is a Con hog, and nobody should really be surprised by her latest porky adventure.
The slaying of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo while he stood guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa galvanized the country, but now a Conservative MP is using his death to peddle Easter hams in a bizarre fundraising campaign.
Even though her attempt to link refugees and migrants to terrorists couldn't be more disgusting.
The email is an assault on Liberal immigration policies, but it also includes a picture of Cirillo in military dress with the caption, "A Hero Forever In Our Hearts." The text links the fast-tracking of Canadian citizenship for refugees and migrants to the reversal of a bill that revoked citizenship for dual citizens convicted of terrorist acts.
This couldn't couldn't be more vulgar or classless.
At the bottom of the email a red "Order Now" button leads to an Easter fundraising campaign where donors are told they will be rewarded with a ham, though the website cautions the ham is only available to residents of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke.
And it must surely make people wonder whether Rona Ambrose can control ANYONE in her Con caucus...
For as we know Michelle Rempel is totally out of control.
And so is Jason Kenney...
Who has been acting like a hog in heat, and doesn't listen to anything Rona says. Because all he wants to do is destroy Justin Trudeau, for humiliating him beyond recognition.
You know in an article in yesterday's Globe, Bruce Anderson suggests that the Cons should tap into hope not anger if they hope to win again.
When you read the commentary of many conservatives today, there’s a common theme – a disbelief that people are happy, a conviction that they should be angry, a sense that “sunny ways” is a concoction of the Liberals and the hated mainstream media.
The idea that to sell a good idea you must create an enemy and vilify them is far from the cleverest idea the conservatives ever had. It’s one of the worst. It’s their kryptonite. When conservative partisans mock optimism, they are making fun of eight in 10 voters. It’s bad math.
Because they just can't help themselves.
A Con hog is a Con hog is a Con hog...
And for that reason they must never be allowed to win again.
We will use their negativity and their evil against them.
Or munch on a ham sandwich.
While we watch them destroy themselves....
