Justin Trudeau and the Loser Party
They have gone after his wife, they have gone after his kids, they have gone after his mother.
They have tried to sabotage his legislative agenda, by turning our parliament into a monkey house.
And yesterday Justin Trudeau finally lost his temper.
And while he should have remained in his seat, and not given the opposition an excuse to call him a big bad bully.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was accused of "manhandling" Opposition whip Gord Brown and elbowing NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau in the House of Commons as MPs gathered for a vote on the government's assisted-dying bill Wednesday afternoon.
Boo hoo hoo.
Who can blame him for being angry?
He has had to remain silent while the Cons and the NDP attacked his family...
Which couldn't have been easy.
The Cons and the NDP have been playing cheap parliamentary games.
The man in charge of organizing Liberal votes in the House of Commons was breathing a sigh of relief Monday after narrowly averting disaster on the government’s proposed Air Canada legislation.
“My blood pressure was a little higher than usual,” said Liberal MP Andrew Leslie, the chief government whip, after the opposition pulled a procedural trick to bring about a snap vote on Bill C-10, which proposes changes to the Air Canada Public Participation Act.
Games which couldn't be more sneaky or childish.
The Liberals were expecting to hear from NDP MP Alexandre Boulerice on an amendment to the bill, which proposes lifting a long-standing requirement that Air Canada keep its maintenance operations in Winnipeg, Montreal and Mississauga, Ont.
But when his time came, Boulerice hid out in the lobby, which forced a vote with a 30-minute warning bell.
And yesterday the Cons and the NDP were trying to delay passage of a bill which many terminally ill people are depending upon to end their suffering. And one the Supreme Court has given the government until June to make law.
With the Cons dragging their heels, and the NDP trying to physically stop the Con Whip Gord Brown from returning to his seat.
As this tape which I looped and slowed down for you makes only too clear.
Where you can clearly see Tom Mulcair and other NDP members, including Ruth Ellen Brosseau, move to the left to block Brown.
And if that's what Brosseau calls an assault, or a vicious elbow, or a nasty bump, she's clearly never been on a crowded bus.
And one really has to wonder what the NDP will look like when they return to the Commons today...
And thank goodness Elizabeth May was there....
To see who started it.
So the outraged reaction from the NDP and the Cons couldn't be more absurd...
Or more pathetic.
The Mulcair Party should be ashamed for putting a dirty smile on Stephen Harper's face...
For the first time since he was defeated.
And Nikki Ashton should also be ashamed of herself.
For after the disgusting way she went after Sophie Gregoire Trudeau...
if she packed any more hyperbole or hypocrisy into this statement:
I want to say for all of us who witnessed this,this was deeply traumatic.What I will say,if we apply a gendered lens, it is very important that young women in this space feel safe to come here and work here.
He made us feel unsafe and we're deeply troubled by the conduct of the prime minister of this country."
I swear she'd explode.
For what will she do next? Retweet this ugly Con?
Her new found feminist ally.
Or sing Solidarity Forever with Dean del Mastro?
Or dance a tango with the bully bigot Jason Kenney...
To celebrate the formation of the Loser Party of Canada.
Because that is of course the real reason the Cons and the NDP are blowing hot air out of every angry orifice.
Justin Trudeau is soooooo popular.
While they're not, and still don't understand that they lost the last election.
What happened yesterday will only make Trudeau more popular, for people know fakers when they see them.
And nobody really gives a damn what the Loser Party says or does.
But of course, there is a lesson to be learned for both Justin and ourselves.
Justin needs to remember what my old boxing coach told me, although he probably knows it already. He just forgot.
Stay cool, yes even if they attack you and your family, for they are scumbags so you know they will. Dodge and duck the low blows, let your opponents exhaust themselves. Or think they're winning.
And then at precisely the right moment, wipe the smile off their brutish faces...
I mean if I can keep my cool after being humiliated by my friends, for having voted for the NDP in the last election and must now wear a bag over my head, Justin can keep his cool too.
You know, don't get angry get even eh?
And as for the rest of us we need to remember that the Loser Party is now at war with a government supported by a super majority of decent Canadians.
If those losers won't respect democracy, then they should be shown no respect, and no mercy.
