The Wonderful Humiliation of the Ghastly Ezra Levant
Gosh. It's not as if Ezra Levant hasn't been humiliated enough recently.
His recent trip to Paris to try to convince the French to hate Muslims as much as him and his crazies do was a complete bust.
This trip has been depressing, because no one here is angry. They certainly aren't talking about -- God forbid -- letting people arm themselves. It's time for irrational hatred. It's time for vehement patriotism. This city needs a slap in the face.
And no doubt a devastating blow to the budget of his tacky shoe-string operation...
His attempt to stir up bigotry in this country also failed miserably, and helped elect Justin Trudeau.
Which along with his mounting legal bills, must be enough to make him wake up screaming in the middle of the night.
But this has to be the final humiliation.
Alberta’s NDP government is imposing an economy-wide carbon tax starting in 2017 and a cap on emissions from the oil sands in a sweeping plan aimed at showing it is serious about fighting climate change.
Or the final betrayal.
Suncor Energy Inc. chief executive Steve Williams, Shell Canada head Lorraine Mitchelmore, Cenovus Energy Inc. CEO Brian Ferguson and even Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. chairman Murray Edwards, who had been among the sharpest critics of the NDP’s economic policies, stood with Ms. Notley and environmental groups to endorse the moves.
Or the straw that broke the bigot's back, and finally sent the self-styled Rebel Commander over the deep end.
Rachel Notley just announced a massive, job-killing carbon tax. It’s a made-in-Alberta version of Trudeau's National Energy Program. Alberta’s already lost 100,000 jobs this year. And if her plan succeeds, she’ll kill 100,000 more. But we can stop it if we fight back now.
Along with the crazies from the Wild Hog Party.
Despite the plan having the full support of the oil and gas industry, Wildrose finance critic Derek Fildebrandt thought: why don't I try to brand its supporters as "extremists"?
So remember that, Calgary Chamber of Commerce: the Wildrose finance critic must think you're pretty extreme too.
But of course nobody must be suffering more, or feeling more betrayed and more humiliated, than the fallen oil pimp Stephen Harper...
Who spent years railing against an imaginary NDP carbon tax, only to have a real one hit him in the face.
And is now living in a country with a Liberal government, and a Trudeau as prime minister, in a province with an NDP government and a carbon tax, and in a city with a Muslim mayor.
So I can only imagine how he must be feeling...
But of course Harper is a millionaire, so he has nothing to really worry about. Apart from his shrinking legacy.
Unlike the Rebel Commander, who will leave no legacy, only a faint whiff of a foul stench.
But does have mounting legal bills, and limited sources of revenue.
So he must be absolutely desperate...
And isn't that a bonus?
Time is moving on, and so is Alberta.
And these two bigot bullies, who sniffed each others fumes.
Were in the end left looking like idiots, and humiliated together...
