Andrew Scheer and the New Reform Party
Andrew Scheer likes to describe himself as a new generation leader, but like everything else about him that claim couldn't be more fraudulent.
For instead of leading his Cons out of the darkness of the Harper years, he's taking them back to the cowboy days of the Reform Party.
And he just can't seem to do anything right.
When the Con clown Gerry Ritz called Catherine McKenna a "climate Barbie" Scheer could hardly bring himself to give him a slap on the wrist, and allowed the Ritz cracker to remain in the caucus.
When the Con Senator Lynn Beyak insulted Canada's First Nations as only that Con hog could.
Scheer also refused to expel her from his racist caucus.
And if that wasn't bad enough, he appointed the fanatical anti-abortion activist Rachael Harder to be his "shadow minister" for the Status of Women.
Even though she doesn't believe in a woman's right to control her own body, and by appointing her Scheer clearly showed that he doesn't either.
Well now only days after finally apologizing for his last mistake...
Gerry Ritz has made an absolute idiot out of himself. Again.
Not even a week after he was engulfed in controversy for referring to a federal minister as "climate Barbie," the veteran Conservative linked Shariah law to the Liberals' handling of ongoing NAFTA renegotiations on Monday.
But Scheer still won't expel him from the caucus, no doubt because that might offend his good buddy Ezra Levant...
Who he has yet to condemn for HIS racist views.
But he will condemn the Liberals for refusing to accept the ghastly Rachel Harder as the chair of the Status of Women Committee.
A meeting of the House Status of Women Committee ended abruptly Tuesday morning when all the Liberal members walked out in protest of the Conservatives’ nomination for chair, citing her anti-abortion and anti-trans voting record as unsupportable.
Claiming of all things that the move shows a lack of respect for the parliamentary process.
Following question period, Scheer told reporters he thought it was "unprecedented that the prime minister would interfere and block the nomination of a democratically elected Member of Parliament to serve as chair of a committee," adding that it "shows a lack of respect for the parliamentary process."
Even though as Justin Trudeau has made abundantly clear, it's high time the rights of women were respected in this country.
And nobody has ever shown more lack of respect for the parliamentary process than Scheer did, when he was the worst Speaker the House of Commons has ever known...
Who always bent towards Stephen Harper like the leaning tower of Pisa, and let the Cons turn our parliament into a Roman circus.
You know, the other day the Harper fluffer Paul Wells tried to make us feel sorry for the shabby Scheer.
There comes a time in every new opposition leader’s career when he discovers it’s a horrible job. This usually happens early.
And so hello to Andrew Scheer, who’s having a bit of a week.
But at least he did point out that Scheer is having the same problems Harper had with the Reform gang, before he brought the hammer down.
Scheer will soon have to decide whether he can afford to let his caucus members say what they want. Until he does, the emerging pattern of his management style—laissez faire, followed by hasty backtracking—will come to define him.
And he also reminds us why Scheer is looking so desperate...
The backdrop for all of this, it’s worth remembering, is the formidable task the fates have assigned Scheer. He’s trying to defeat a new majority government after a single term. How easy is that? The historical record suggests it… may be impossible.
And that of course is the good news.
Justin Trudeau is a better leader and a much better man than Scheer the Reform clown can ever hope to be.
Scheer is a sexist pig, a racist, a religious fanatic, an anti-gay bigot, and a pathetic weakling.
And in the next election Trudeau is going to destroy him...
