Stephen Harper and the Foul Smearing of Tom Mulcair
There surely could not have been a more outrageous sight than the spectacle of Tom Mulcair today being grilled like a criminal.
And accused by the Cons of using parliamentary funds for partisan purposes.
Tom Mulcair stood his ground Thursday throughout an unprecedented two-hour grilling by a Commons committee over the NDP's allegedly improper use of parliamentary resources. The NDP leader was at times contemptuous of his Conservative and Liberal tormentors, but managed to keep his temper in check as he insisted — repeatedly — that New Democrats have done nothing wrong.
When the Cons have spent almost a billion dollars on partisan propaganda and porky ads, paid for by the taxpayers.
Nor could here be a more hypocritical sight than the wretched Con and anti-abortion fanatic Stephen Woodworth accusing Mulcair of dodging questions.
"In seven years sitting on this committee, I have never seen a witness as evasive as this witness," said Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth, a lawyer who handled the questioning from the government side.
When that's all the Cons have done for more than eight years, and Mulcair is right, it was a kangaroo court.
"In my 36 years in government, Mr. Woodworth, I've never seen the governing party get together with its handmaiden in the third party to convene (an interrogation of) the leader of the Opposition," shot back Mulcair, dismissing the spectacle as a partisan kangaroo court.
The two-hour stand-off marked the first time in Canadian history that an opposition leader has been ordered to testify at a committee, according to the Library of Parliament.
Nor it must be said, could there be a more depressing sight than the Liberals helping the Cons smear the NDP, even as the Cons smear their own leader...
Or for that matter a more pathetic sight, than the CBC trying to blow this non-event into a major scandal...
While hopping around on their bleeding stumps, thanks to the savage cuts the Cons have inflicted on them.
But at least we know why the Cons are doing it.
To try to make the opposition parties look as sleazy as they are.
As Jason Kenney does all the time with the foreign workers scandal.
For that is the way their depraved leader likes it..
Even though there has never been a Canadian Prime Minister as corrupt and disgusting as him.
And what he's really trying to do is debase our political system so much, until decent Canadians are so disgusted, they don't bother voting.
Which is just another form of voter suppression, and the only way the Cons can still win.
And the good news? It won't work.
Mulcair held his own, and it was quite a show.
Most Canadians know that there is nothing quite as filthy as a Harper Con...
And if they don't, we will remind them.
The Cons are hogs and monsters.
And they must smeared without mercy, and dipped in their own excrement.
Until the day they are DESTROYED...
