Andrew Scheer And His Inner Beast Revealed
The night Andrew Scheer was elected Con leader I remember thinking how little I knew about him, and wondering why the media had failed so miserably to let us know who he really was.
I knew he was a professional politician, I knew he had been a lousy Speaker who always tilted in the same rightward direction like the leaning Tower of Pisa.
I also knew he was a hardcore social conservative, a man with a visceral hatred of gay people, and liberated women.
But one thing I could never figure out was why he was making freedom of speech his biggest or fiercest issue.
Why was a man who can't spell BELIEVE properly, trying to make it look like university students were burning down churches?
And why he was threatening to defund universities, even if that could kill research projects aimed at saving the lives of millions of Canadians?
It didn't make sense, it seemed excessive. Why would a would be prime minister threaten universities so blatantly and so brutally?
And then the other day I came across an interview Scheer had conducted with an anti-abortion activist named Ruth Shaw...
Which if you're on Facebook, you can watch here.
Where they both talked about how Shaw had been arrested at Carleton University in 2010, for what she claimed was just standing up for her beliefs...
While failing to mention that the university had offered her group a room to make a presentation.
But Shaw and her group had refused that offer, and insisted on holding a rally in the public court yard, so they could show students whether they liked it or not, what "abortion really looks like."
And shove grotesque posters like these in their faces...
Which is when I finally understood why the issue brings out the inner beast in Andrew Scheer...
Finally understood why Ezra Levant is such a good friend...
Finally understood why Scheer chose one of the Rebel's bosses to be his campaign manager.
Or why he still hasn't adequately denounced that hate mongering rag.
And why he would appoint a hardline anti-abortion activist to be his shadow "minister" for the Status of Women.
The Conservative Party’s new status of women critic gave close to $12,000 in federal grants last summer to two pregnancy care centres in her riding that refuse to refer clients to abortion providers.
Who would also try to cover her tracks.
A 2015 Lethbridge Herald article paraphrased Harder saying during a campaign trail town hall that she believed “all Canadian women should have access, regardless of where they live,” to abortion services.
However, a candidate profile compiled shortly after by the anti-abortion Campaign Life Coalition cast doubt on her position.
Or just lie like Cons do.
And of course finally understood what kind of Canada Scheer would have us live in if he ever became prime minister...
And all I can say is that anyone who trusts this religious fanatic with the creepy smile, should have his or her head examined...
Our useless Con media has failed to expose him.
So we will have to do it ourselves.
But we have all the ammunition we need.
Stephen Harper was able to dodge the silver bullet because everybody knew he wasn't a religious fanatic.
Andrew Scheer will not be so lucky because everybody knows he's the real thing.
And when we are finished with him and his crazed followers, there won't be much left...
