Kellie Leitch and the Foul Cowardice of the Cons
I realize Kellie Leitch is frustrated. A few weeks ago she had to be told to cool her jets by other Cons.
Because she was apparently getting ready to announce her candidacy for permanent leader of the Harperless party, at least a year before the leadership convention.
And I realize it's hard for her to cool those jets, when her interim leader Rona Ambrose is setting such a bad example...
And is looking more like Canada's Sarah Palin every day.
But there is still no good reason, and no excuse, for what Kellie Leitch said yesterday.
And she should be ashamed of herself, for it was simply despicable.
Conservatives turned up the rhetoric and the heat Thursday, accusing Justin Trudeau’s government of making the country — and members of the military in particular — look weak with their plan to pull CF-18s from combat against the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.
“This government would have those Canadian Armed Forces withdraw,” said Conservative Kellie Leitch. “They would put them in the position where they would be seen on the world stage as cowards. But these people are outstanding and they are not cowards and they want to face ISIS and eradicate it so Syrians can return to their homes.”
A slap in the face to all those who have been risking their lives in the skies over Iraq and Syria..
And just more of the same old Con porn...
Which might as well have come from the mouth of Donald Trump himself.
When in fact bombing will not eradicate ISIS. There are enough nations already bombing that region...
Aerial bombing can terrorize civilians....
Or kill them.
Which is against our Canadian values.
And by stepping up its training program for the boots on the ground, who are the only ones who can defeat ISIS, Canada will be making a far more valuable contribution to the fight against that death cult.
But if Leitch wants to talk about cowardly. This is cowardly.
Status of Women Minister Kellie Leitch is blasting the "abhorrent" practices of rape as a weapon of war and the forced marriage of young children in the developing world. But she's defending Canada's refusal to fund any aid projects that might help the victims of such barbaric practices obtain abortions.
Preventing women who have been raped from getting a safe abortion, just to please her rabid Con base, and her deathly ideology.
Even though she is a doctor.
And of course this couldn't be more cowardly or more monstrous...
Whipping up hatred against Muslims in the manner of her Great Bigot Leader...
Who as we all know, couldn't be more of a coward himself.
But then that is who they are. The most cowardly bloodthirsty bullies this country has ever seen.
And that's why they're not going anywhere. Except to the garbage dump of history.
So much for Rona Ambrose's new "tone."
So much for the new /nouveau Cons....
