Michelle Rempel and the Whitewashing of Stephen Harper
Well it seems that Michelle Rempel got what she wanted. Got comedian Mark Critch to surrender.
With a deranged Twitter rant, and a volley of vulgar words.
Comedian Mark Critch has removed a photo mocking former prime minister Stephen Harper from his Instagram account following a barrage of tweets from a Conservative MP that included obscenities.
Which is both sad and pathetic.
But what the wretched Rempel will NEVER succeed in doing is bullying other Canadians into whitewashing the legacy of this pathetic loser.
For let's be absolutely clear, that's what Rempel's vulgar rant was all about.
And now that she's shredded what was left of her credibility, other Cons are coming forward to try to buff Harper's disastrous record.
Like that other cadaverous Con loser Joe Oliver.
On Friday, our 22nd prime minister, Stephen Harper, ended a remarkable political career that included uniting conservatives and serving as leader of the country for almost a decade. He leaves behind a proud legacy — enhanced collective prosperity and security, and a principled Canadian presence on the world stage.
Whose ode to Harper couldn't be more oily or more absurd...
Beyond his intellect, those of us who were privileged to serve under his leadership also appreciated his deep love of Canada and passion to better the lives of all Canadians.
When in fact Harper was without the shadow of a doubt the worst Prime Minister in Canadian history.
A brutish political thug who savaged our democracy, violated our values, shamed us in the eyes of the world.
A little man whose hideous legacy couldn't be more ugly or more evil...
And if Michelle Rempel wants to talk about being "triggered" or "traumatized" she should spare a thought for the millions of Canadians who were traumatized by the monstrous Con regime.
Who are still recovering from the horror of those years.
And can only be re-traumatized by those who would seek to whitewash Harper's record.
Or triggered by the Cons who would seek to kill the man who defeated him.
The horror that Rempel won't talk about, and Jason Kenney would shrug off.
As only a bestial Con could.
And while we're at it, if Rempel is going to bully comedians into censoring their portrayal of Harper in a closet.
Maybe she should go after Rick Mercer as well for having committed the same "crime"...
If she dares.
But one thing is for sure, neither Rempel nor any other Con is going to whitewash Stephen Harper's legacy.
We'll make sure of that.
For his name will live in infamy.
And whether Rempel likes it or not.
This is how he will be remembered...
As a bully and a coward.
And the leader of the worst government this country has ever known...
