As you may know, the story of Chris Alexander has always reminded me of the Oscar Wilde story The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Where the portrait of the once promising young diplomat morphs into something monstrous, after he sells his soul to Stephen Harper.
Well yesterday that portrait became even uglier, if that's possible.
After Alexander disgraced himself again.
When as he attacked Rachel Notley at a rally on the steps of the Alberta legislature, the crowd started chanting "lock her up," and he did nothing to discourage them...
But did later claim that the chant made him "uncomfortable."
Federal Conservative leadership hopeful Chris Alexander said he felt "uncomfortable" during a rally at the Alberta Legislature this weekend as the crowd chanted "lock her up" in response to his comments about Premier Rachel Notley's leadership.
And even though he can be seen in the video nodding and smiling, and moving a pointy finger up and down like an orchestra conductor, he also claimed that he was only wearing that devilish smirk because he was thinking.
"It was not something I initiated, it was not something I said at any point and it's not something I agree with. I was smiling because I was trying to think of a way to change the chant."
Which couldn't be more outrageous or hilarious...
"And here I am being very uncomfortable and trying to change the chant from 'lock her up' to 'vote her out'..."— Scott Gilmore (@Scott_Gilmore) December 4, 2016

When what Alexander should have said is that in this country we vote people out not lock them up.
And what he also should have been uncomfortable about, is attending that foul rally or freak show...
Which was packed with bigots.
And larded with crackpots.
Among the other speakers at the rally was Bernard (the Roughneck) Hancock, the oil rig worker who went to Parliament Hill to deliver a speech in September. Hancock spoke to the rally, asking supporters if they knew anyone who was a "computer hacker."
"I know there's a bunch of stuff they can dig up on what's going on in that building," he said Saturday, pointing to the Alberta Legislature building. "We need their help."
One that couldn't have looked and sounded more like a Donald Trump rally.
And to make matters even more sordid, was organized by the sleazy bigot Ezra Levant...
Who is clearly hoping that Trump's victory will make hate mongering more profitable in this country.
And has a "Big Plan" to expand his ratty Rebel into something grander.
I’ve got a big plan that I’ve been working on for a year now, and I’m ready to tell you about it. Because I want to ask you if you agree with my big plan, and if you want to help me do it.
The big plan is to take our channel, TheRebel.media, and turn it into the largest, most influential news media outlet in Canada.
Or at least another big plan to beg his supporters to send him more money...
Which judging from the comments, isn't being well received by some of his not so faithful viewers...
So much for the Big Plan, and Ezra Levant's delusions of grandeur.
And so much for Chris Alexander, who somehow always manages to be associated with the scummiest people in this country.
A flyer with the title "Unnecessary Immigration is Destroying Canada" was distributed at the rally. The flyer is supported by the Immigration Watch Canada organization and said Canadians should band together and stop unnecessary immigration.
The racists and xenophobes he once used to encourage.
And can now join the ones running for the leadership of the Trump Party...
And take on Kellie Leitch his old partner from the Cultural Barbarism Show.
While the decent people in this country are left to wonder how low can the Cons go?
How soon can we remove that Trumpling tumour from the Canadian body politic?
And of course, how long must we wait before the grotesque Ezra Levant is charged with stirring up hate?
And sent to the place he belongs...
