The Day Jason Kenney Disgraced Himself. Again.
Jason Kenney has disgraced himself, or made a fool of himself, many times during his long and sordid political career.
He has gone after the human rights of women, gay people, Muslims, and most recently helpless refugees, as only a religious fanatic and a full fleshed Con bigot could.
He once accused Justin Trudeau of trying to flood our neighbourhoods with junkies and hookers.
And then of course there was the foreign workers fiasco, where after causing the problem, he claimed he was the solution.
But yesterday had to be one of his most disgraceful days ever.
When he heckled Harjit Sajjan, our new defence minister, in a most disgusting manner.
Veteran Conservative MP Jason Kenney sparked controversy in question period Monday with a heckle directed at Canada's defence minister that a Liberal MP later deemed "racist."
Though Kenney rejected Liberal calls to apologize in the House of Commons, he took to Twitter to explain why he allegedly said MPs needed an "English-to-English translation" as Harjit Sajjan spoke about the government's plans to deal with the so-called Islamic State.
And then didn't even have the decency, or the courage, to apologize.
But then nobody should be surprised that Kenney should have such an appalling meltdown. For he has been smouldering with rage ever since the Cons were defeated.
And his one and only chance of replacing Stephen Harper went up in smoke...
He simply can't stand the idea that he is out of power. He can't bear to think that he can't bully people any longer, or attend all those ethnic banquets.
And eat himself silly, at our expense.
And of course he did LOVE playing soldier...
With all that excitement, all those shiny toys, and all those men in uniform.
So he has kept up a steady barrage of tweets and chickenhawk statements as if he was still the defence minister...
Even though he is now the shadow minister of NOTHING.
And even though Harjit Sajjan is more of a real soldier, and a better defence minister, than Kenney could ever dream of being...
He has some thoughtful ideas on the Great War on Terror.
And has at least ten times more class than Kenney.
Although it must be said that isn't too difficult...
For Kenney is a low creature.
And the best news?
If he won't do the decent thing and apologize for his idiot comment, which hopefully will lose him even more of the ethnic vote than he lost in the last election.
Then the Con Queen Rona Ambrose must apologize in his name, or end up looking just as bad as Kenney.
Or like his hapless stooge...
Because Ambrose had asked her Cons to stop heckling, and Kenney and a group of other mostly Alberta MPs are simply ignoring her.
So with a little bit of luck, the short and shabby story of the post Harper Party will have taken another step towards its happy ending.
We will attack them like they've never been attacked before. We will bring in electoral reform to blow them off the map.
But long before we finish them off.
They will destroy themselves...
