In my last post I looked at how Andrew Scheer had been caught accusing the United Nations and Justin Trudeau of trying to erase Canada's borders.
With what turned out to be a neo-Nazi meme.
But it's worth recalling that he wasn't the first Con to go after the U.N.
The ugly redneck MP Larry Miller got there first.
Ever since Andrew Scheer and his ex-Rebel campaign manager Hamish Marshall set out to destroy Justin Trudeau, they have been pumping out a steady stream of the most disgusting attack ads this country has ever seen.
Depraved yellow and red tinted political pornography that demonizes Trudeau over and over again.
And has some of the yellow vested members of their base in such a fevered frenzy, they are calling him a traitor and demanding that he be executed.

The first time I saw Andrew Scheer ranting and raving about the U.N. Global Compact for Migration, I couldn't understand what he was talking about. Or where he got that bizarre idea from.
Especially since the Compact, which was endorsed the other day by almost all the countries in the world, is not legally binding and does not affect our sovereignty in the least.
So I thought it was just the latest attempt to whip up racism and xenophobia by the increasingly desperate hate mongers in the Con propaganda department.
But now it seems the idea came from an even darker place.

Toxic masculinity is one of the greatest curses of humanity. It turns boys into beasts and bullies.
It demeans women, and kills them in horrifying numbers. It drives men to murder each other all over our bloody planet, in one senseless war after the other.
It was largely responsible for Donald Trump's victory, and it's what the ghastly Andrew Scheer is trying to use against Justin Trudeau.
And since I hate bullies of any kind with a passion.
I really like this video.
Yesterday I wondered why Andrew Scheer hadn't condemned his yellow vested supporters for calling Justin Trudeau a traitor, and threatening to kill him.
But I forgot how much Scheer hates Trudeau, and how excited he was at the thought of joining a massive truck convoy and driving all the way from Alberta to Ottawa, to let him know how much others hated him.
Because trust me, he was practically giddy with excitement.
And I mean giddy...

In my last post I looked at the way Canada's yellow vest movement has been taken over by alt-right extremists, and how many of them are calling Justin Trudeau a traitor.
And some are even demanding that he be executed.
And I noticed that wherever there are signs accusing Trudeau of treason, there are also signs denouncing the United Nation's Global Compact for Migration, claiming it would erase our borders.
And since the two are clearly related, and that claim is false, I wondered why Andrew Scheer was encouraging those extremists.

We are told that we shouldn't judge them too harshly. That they are just the Canadian, or the Alberta version, of the yellow vests in France.
But their crude signs send out one ugly message after the other. Bigotry is good, the U.N. is bad, immigrants are a menace, Justin Trudeau is a traitor.
All over the internet these yellow bellies bellow and howl for him to be tried or hanged for treason.

Justin Trudeau has done many town halls, but the one in Regina the other day seems to have resonated with Canadians to an extraordinary degree.
And not just with those who support him, but also with some of those who don't, and even with some of his enemies in the media.
For while this tweet of mine was extremely well received.

I was flipping through the TV channels last night, on my way to watch the CBC News, when I came across a live broadcast of Justin Trudeau's town hall in Regina. And I couldn't stop watching it.
Not just because it was riveting TV. Trudeau in enemy territory, holding off the hostile hordes.
But also because, as much as I tried not to, after all those death threats, I couldn't help worrying about whether somebody would try to kill him.
It pains me to say this, but I have to admit I was wrong about Maxime Bernier.
I always knew the man known as the Bobo from the Beauce was a Con clown, obsessed with the dairy cartel.
But I thought he was essentially harmless.
And sadly I was wrong.
