Why Candice Hoeppner Hates the Gun Registry
OK. So I'm watching the CBC Snooze last night and suddenly up pops Candy Hoeppner, the Con porker who allegedly came up with the idea to kill the gun registry.
And Mendy Wesley asks her does she have any idea how much the Cons have spent supporting her alleged Private Member's Bill, with big billboards, radio ads, fancy websites, and just plain old Con manure?
The Google ads are designed to target constituents in the ridings of the opposition MPs as they surf on the Web for information about the registry and their federal representatives. The Tories say it is the first time they’ve used this kind of advertising.
And guess what? Candy says she doesn't have ANY idea. Nothing, rien, nada. So now I'm thinking who is paying for her cross-country tour,and the fancy SUV?
And does anybody with an IQ higher than a turnip, or a drooling gun nut, still believe this is a Private Member's Bill?
Which made me wonder why DID the Cons choose her to front this killer bill? What don't I know about Candy? Why did Stephen Harper anoint her with his tongue to be the porker Evita of the NRA gun nut lobby?
And sure enough I found it. Believe it or not Candy Hoeppner is more worried about men being marginalized.
The MP encouraged the meeting participants not to accept the media portrayal of males as passive and apathetic, and challenged them to explore cooperative measures that will encourage men to celebrate and nurture their place in families and society.
Than she is about women being murdered. Or betraying her own gender.
Guns are a constant in the lives of rural Canadian women — one reason many of them as are as committed to gun control and the gun registry as their urban sisters.
“It's not a matter of rural versus urban. It's a public safety issue. How many women and children in rural Canada are threatened in their own homes with a gun? More than we want to know, I think.”
Which explains why she's prepared to do ANYTHING to please the misogynist scum in the Harper government.
Even if women are hurt or silenced.
“Rural and farm women who experience violence in the home describe a cycle of intimidation with guns . . . which makes it really difficult for women even to report what's going on, “ says Jo-Ann Brooke, director of the Women's Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County in Pembroke, Ont.
No doubt she feels big guns make men with little guns more MANLY.
Oh well. It looks as if we are going to be able to save the registry. Candy's Evita of the Rednecks act will quickly be forgotten.
And until we drive her and her bloodthirsty porkers out of office.
Which will be SOON.
She can go back to doing what she does best.
Gawd. You don't think Candy will go WILD like Miss Piggy when she loses the Gun Registry vote?
Lordy I hope so....
