The Incredible Degradation of the Con Monster Chris Alexander
He has been keeping a low profile after voters in his riding gave him the boot, for having among other things poisoned our body politic, with his callous approach to the Syrian refugee crisis, his divisive, bigoted rhetoric.
And his ghastly Barbaric Cultural Practices campaign complete with a snitch line, which shamed us in the eyes of the world.
But now Chris Alexander is back on the street, and if you thought he might be just a little bit sorry about the barbaric way he behaved, you'd be wrong.
He's totally unrepentant.
“We’re still the party that sees reality as it is, doesn’t want to go on some hippy-trippy jaunt down memory lane and put marijuana in the windows of every store,” he said in an interview Tuesday on Ottawa’s Sparks Street.
Still talking like a rabid right-winger. Still claiming he had nothing to do with the death of the Syrian toddler Alan Kurdi...
“I spent two weeks being called a baby-killer by other MPs and by people in the media. That was not pleasant.”
Trying to make us believe we should feel sorry for him.
When in fact the evidence suggests that if he had just lifted a finger to help the other members of the Kurdi family, as they were begging him to do, that poor little boy might still be alive.
Anyone who breathes a sigh of relief that Canada turned out not to be so directly implicated in the death of little Alan and his brother and his mother: They’re deluded. Anyone who imagines that Canada is off the hook for the shame, the agony and the hopelessness that Mohammad and his family continue to endure, then there is something dangerously wrong with them.
But if you think that Alexander could not sink any lower, think again. For not only does he claim that there was nothing wrong with his xenophobic Barbaric Cultural Practices crusade...
“Suddenly we ended up in a campaign talking about second-class citizens? That concept does not exist in Canadian law. It should not exist in public debate. We did not introduce it to the debate. When it was introduced by the party that’s now won the election, we didn’t counter it enough,” he said.
He blames others for poisoning the campaign.
“We don’t have room in this country for poison like that and people deserve in an election to know what the law actually says, the protections they enjoy in this country, what opportunities they enjoy in this country compared to virtually every country in the world. But that failed to be communicated.”
Which has to be the absolute limit of his moral degradation.
And the good news? Even the clown Paul Calandra knows that Alexander's foul and divisive campaign helped kill the Cons.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper's handpicked parliamentary secretary says the Conservative Party's focus on identity issues — the niqab, stripping citizenship from dual nationals and launching a barbaric cultural practices hot line — was a mistake that cost the party votes among new Canadians.
So Alexander's political career couldn't have ended in greater failure
And his slow descent into the hell of his own making couldn't be more complete.
The promising young diplomat who sold his soul to Stephen Harper...
Decayed like the ghastly portrait of Dorian Gray...
And ended up an absolute monster...
And since hopefully I will never have to write a word about Alexander again, as he slips into well deserved obscurity.
All I can say is I hope the memory of little Alan Kurdi haunts him for the rest of his life.
And how lucky we were to get rid of him and his foul Cons, and their depraved leader.
Before they poisoned the soul of this country...
