Elbowgate and the Trudeau Hater Losers
I don't think the so-called two-four long weekend has ever come at a better time in the whole history of Canada.
So we can all recover from that act of collective madness that was the elbowgate affair. For it has been a real nightmare.
The Trudeau haters have been howling at the moon, screaming for Justin Trudeau's blood, or just talking crazy.
Because they're not just ugly, they're really really dumb.
And if I see another video of Tom Mulcair shuffling sideways like a crab to prevent the Con whip from getting by him.
Or another video of Ruth Ellen Brosseau looking like she had just been shot by Trudeau's accidental elbow.
I think I'll scream AIEEEEEE!!!!!!
But at least there was the new picture of Stephen Harper to wipe out the memory of this one...
Because that picture of Great Defeated Leader grinning like a jackal bothered me so much I felt like howling at the moon myself eh?
Until I saw this one...
Which shows that when Justin Trudeau marched across the aisle, Harper looked like he was scared out of his mind.
And was ready to head for you know where...
While Jason Kenney showed again why they call him GODzilla or Hogzilla...
Even though we all know that had Trudeau even looked at him, that jelly belly bigot who has never held a real job in his life, would have joined Harper in that closet.
But what made the Cons and the NDP look like real losers, was the way they tried to exploit the incident.
For while Justin Trudeau had the decency to personally apologize...
To just about everyone in Canada. Gawd.
The opposition behaved in a manner, as Scott Gilmore writes, that couldn't be more outrageous.
What was premeditated, though, was the painfully insulting reaction from the opposition members. They spent five hours over the course of Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon standing up one after the other, recounting in tremulous voices how they had been traumatized by the fracas.
Or more obscene.
In the 15 minutes it took Deepak Obhrai to sufficiently express how “absolutely shocked” he was by the “assault,” elsewhere in Canada some 400 people were trying to protect themselves from real blows, were crying real tears and were wiping away real blood.
As Peter Van Loan stood up in the House and moved that the “physical molestation” should be referred to the standing committee on procedure and House affairs, I wonder if he was ashamed, for even a second, that he might be heard by one of the half-million women who were sexually assaulted in Canada last year?
And of course, there’s Niki Ashton, who found it all “deeply traumatic.” As traumatic as knowing that Manitoba, her home province, has the highest rate of violent victimization in Canada? And that her own riding contains some of the most troubled and violent communities in the country?
Or more shameless.
But of course the biggest loser was Tom Mulcair. Who started the whole incident by shuffling along like he was in a chorus line to try to block the Con whip...
And who first laughed...
And then screamed. And then accused Justin Trudeau of using foul language.
Only to have it revealed yesterday that so did fuddle duddle Tom.
As two delicate tourists and retired journalists from Victoria who were sitting in the gallery metres above the dust-up, may we make a few observations?
In the heated exchange between Mr. Trudeau and NDP Leader Tom Mulcair, Mr. Mulcair loudly told the PM to fuddle duddle and was not sanctioned for his unparliamentary language.
And by being seen to be playing cheap political games to delay a vote on the assisted suicide bill, which so many critically ill Canadians are counting on to relieve their suffering.
Couldn't have done more damage to himself and his party...
But don't tell that to his small and shrinking band of fanatic followers.
For they'll accuse you of belonging to the "Trudeau cult."
When in fact they are the ones who are looking like some crazed cult.
For following an angry old right-winger to oblivion.
But yes, thank goodness it's the two-four weekend
Have a good one everybody...
