It had to be one of the most bizarre posts I've ever read. One of the most notorious Trudeau haters in the blogosphere, claiming that he doesn't hate Justin Trudeau.
There are some who say that I hate Justin Trudeau. One even claimed that I had suggested that JT be tossed in prison and ass raped. I can only assume that individual, who can be erratic in his vitriol, was either off his meds or onto some other product.
And while normally I would chuckle at the ravings of the Mound of Sound.
Since that first paragraph is aimed at me, I will respond and let you be the judge.
For although the Disaffected Lib didn't have the courage to mention my name, many people know it was me who objected to that filthy post. The one who let him know that while it's OK to criticize Justin Trudeau, it's not OK to link him and his government to prison rape.
Or denigrate those who are its victims. It's disgusting
But then that's not the only problem I have with the miserable Mound.
For not only does he have a problem with Trudeau, he also has a problem with women. He was roundly criticized for his misogynistic posts during the Ghomeshi Affair.
And to make matters even worse, he also has a problem with gay people.
For when the actress Ellen Page came out a couple of years ago, to show her support
for the victims of anti-gay bullying.
This is how he responded to a supportive post on the blog Politics and Its Discontents.
As if gay people should be seen and not heard, even if they're standing up for bullied children. As if Ellen Page's announcement had something to do with "sexual activity?"
How creepy and clammy is that? And what is his problem?
But sadly that's not all. For at about the same time as his diatribe against Ellen Page, and after writing a post about a gay issue, I also started receiving weird late night anti-gay comments from him.
I didn't write anything about that, because it would have meant repeating those vile comments. And because quite frankly I thought he was mentally ill.
He has had at least one scary and very public mental breakdown. A few years ago, he started spewing the weirdest and craziest stuff, insulting people left and right and centre in the foulest manner, before abruptly quitting Progressive Bloggers.
Only to come crawling back a few months later, after deleting his disturbing posts, but never bothering to apologize to all the people he had insulted.
So having him accuse me of being off my meds or spewing vitriol, couldn't be more absurd or hypocritical.
But yes, I admit that this is one of the many reasons I admire Justin Trudeau.
And no doubt one of the many reasons the Mound of Sound hates him so much.
But his outrageous claim that he is a bigger defender of the Charter of Rights than Trudeau can only be the product of a diseased mind.
You see, Trudeau's problem isn't really with the Carter decision or the assisted dying law. His problem is with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Like Harper before him, he wants to ignore it, sneak around it. It was despicable when Harper tried it. It is at least as despicable when a Liberal prime minister tries it on - for partisan political considerations. Your Charter rights are subject to his partisan political interests and the temper of the mob.
Or of his absurd megalomania.
When as the Globe points out, the situation is far more nuanced and complex.
There is both a need for restraint, and a need to move quickly.
The Canadian Medical Association is not the mob. I know about a thousand times more about the realities of the dying process than he does. And he doesn't know what he's talking about.
More than eighty percent of the expected cases are already covered by the present legislation. Only about five percent of Canadians are expected to apply for assisted dying. And every country that now provides that service has proceeded at first in the same cautious manner. And expanded it once they saw what it looked like in action.
So it is just an excuse to attack Trudeau. For he is obsessed with him in an unhealthy manner, and claiming that he is the same or worse than Stephen Harper is absolute insanity.
So why is he now pretending he doesn't hate him?
My guess is because it must be driving him absolutely crazy, or crazier, to discover that he is just part of an angry minority.
And that he is sharing his bully pulpit in some rancid place with the Cons, bitter NDP types, and the pornographic Trudeau haters of Ezra Levant's mob.
His overheated words are falling on deaf ears, and he's feeling lonely.
And while as I said before, it's perfectly legitimate to criticize the Trudeau government, demonizing Justin, or stirring up stirring up such blind hatred against him is not OK. Not when he's already being attacked in the most vicious manner. Not when it's so personal, and there are so many death threats against him all over the internet.
And it's all helping to create a climate of violence like I have never seen before. Which is something everybody should be concerned about.
As for why the miserable Mound is coming after me for having the temerity to criticize his prison rape post, that's even simpler.
One, that pathetic old man seeks to dominate Progressive Bloggers. He's always trying to turn it into his personal Facebook page. Blogging from dawn to dusk, filing as many as a dozen posts a day, Driving other bloggers off the front page, in his quest for Total Domination.
And I am one of the biggest obstacles in his path. Even though I only publish a couple of posts a day so as to give other bloggers a chance to showcase their work.
And two, also believe it or not, because he probably thinks that he can get at me by attacking Justin Trudeau.
Which may sound weird. And is totally ridiculous. But I'm pretty sure these lines in this post yesterday morning were what set him off.
And the sad truth is that like so many other Trudeau haters, he has made a complete fool out of himself.
Because although they were directed at Tom Mulcair, I'm sure he took it personally.
And it's a pattern I have noticed over and over again. Which needless to say I find somewhat disturbing.
Now I must admit that people like the Disaffected Lib make me feel like giving up blogging. I don't much care to share the same space on a supposedly progressive site, with a misogynist, a homophobe, and a Trudeau hater.
But that is of course what he would
And this is what I would tell him.
He really should seek help, he really should take his meds, he really should get a life.
I don't want him to come anywhere near this blog, or leave any more foul comments under any of his many aliases, or this time I will report him.
I'm sorry for this angry rant, which as you know is not my style. But when a man like that accuses me of being a mental patient or a drug addict, I will fight back.
I have fought bullies, homophobes, misogynists, and hate mongers like him from the time I was fourteen years old.
So that hideous foul mouthed bully will NEVER intimidate me...
