Why Do So Many Cons Want To Kill Justin Trudeau?
A few weeks ago I was at a party in Edinburgh, and once they found out I was a Canadian, everyone I met wanted to ask me about Justin Trudeau.
Had I ever met him? Was he as cool as he seemed? When will he legalize marijuana?(So they know when to visit Canada.)
And how they wished he was their Prime Minister.
And although I was forced to admit that I hadn't voted for Justin. Which was embarrassing eh?
When I stumbled back to my hotel room, I was feeling pretty good about myself and my country.
Until I saw this story.
Because it reminded me of the violent hatred so many Canadians seem to have for the man who liberated us from the nightmare of the Con regime.
Reminded me how American-style hatred is spreading in this country, like a cancer.
And how despite the number of threats, so few are being charged like this ghastly creature.
A Saskatchewan man could face jail time if found guilty of uttering threats against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. According to documents obtained from Yorkton Provincial Court, Christopher Hayes “knowingly convey(ed) a threat to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to cause death to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau” between March 6 and July 8 “by way of Facebook comments.”
So needless to say I found this story deeply disturbing.
Since last fall’s election loss, the Conservative Party of Canada’s Facebook page has come to look increasingly like the Rebel. Visitors vent, writing that immigrants and twenty-something pot smokers stole the election. Anti-Quebec rants are frequent. Comments are left that promote Western separatism, while conspiracy theories abound: Justin Trudeau is a Muslim convert, Mick Jagger is his father, and he and wife Sophie Grégoire are bipolar.
For the comments on the Con's Facebook page are ugly and violent beyond belief, and it seems that they just don't care.
What this says about the culture of the Conservative Party today is reflected by the fact that these comments are rarely challenged by others, while the party itself maintains a silence. And so we find a remarkable situation in which Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition allows calls for the prime minister’s assassination from its Facebook page.
Which sadly enough makes complete sense, for it only reflects the monstrous way they have always portrayed Justin Trudeau from the moment he ran for office...
And how they have sought to demonize him in every possible way.
But of course it's not just the Harper Party Cons, the hatred also flows like acid from the pages of Ezra Levant's diseased hate mongering rag The Rebel.
Whose death threats I regularly publicize in the hope that the RCMP will notice them and take action.
And hopefully arrest and charge those responsible, close down that bigot rag, and send its monstrous hate cult leader to the place where he rightfully belongs.
But sadly, it's not just crazed right wingers who are to blame for this problem.
For to make matters even worse, some on our side are also guilty of fostering this climate of hate. Some old and bitter NDP types who blame Justin for the sad state of their party, instead of themselves.
Or bloggers like the miserable Mound of Sound whose obsession with Trudeau reminds me of the time when he was bombarding me with vile anti-gay messages.
Who once called Trudeau a bitch and suggested he should be raped in prison. And whose venomous hatred knows no bounds.
Neither the bounds of decency.
Nor the bounds of reason.
For it is all madness. Justin Trudeau should be criticized like any other political leader. But he is not the devil incarnate, he's a really decent human being.
He is better than Harper. No matter what the mouldy Mound might think.
And he does not deserve the venom he receives. Which is not only disgusting but dangerous...
And could lead to the most horrible tragedy.
There is no room and no excuse for violent political hatred in Canada.
The Cons and other hate mongers should control themselves. Or bite their tongues until they bleed.
The police should go after the guilty like they would go after any other terrorists.
For the madness must be stopped.
And enough is enough...
