Michelle Rempel and the Racist Cons

Michelle Rempel likes to pose as the political equivalent of Little Miss Muffet. A tiny  shining light of decency in a world full of nasty scary spiders. 

Liberal spiders who are always attacking her, or discreetly suggesting she's a drunk. And Con spiders who won't recognize her "greatness" or make her their leader.

And while I don't expect that to change, since she does like to scream about EVERYTHING.

She can forget about the decency part.

For now she and her ghastly Cons are the ones who trying to scare Canadians, with this brutish attack ad.

Which reveals the true nature of our bestial Cons.

And how far they are willing to go to distort reality...

Or lie like thieves over and over again.

In their never ending attempts to corrupt this country and its precious Canadian values.

As Andrew Scheer's "shadow immigration minister" Rempel should have taken responsibility for that filthy attack ad.

And the fact that she didn't is just more evidence of what a coward she is.

One who blocks anyone who doesn't agree with her.

And her screeching claims that the situation at the border is a "crisis" created by the Liberals shows how low she and her ghastly Cons have fallen. 

The Conservative Party position on the influx of asylum seekers along the Quebec border is that the Liberal government created a “crisis” and are now "without a plan” to fix it. 

Every word of that position is wrong. The Trudeau government has not handled the border file perfectly, but the Conservatives are overreaching wildly in their critique.

Justin Trudeau didn't create the migrant surge with this tweet.

The suggestion is absurd on its face, considering the overall contrast between the Trump administration’s virulent hostility to immigrants on the one hand and Canada’s longstanding global reputation as a haven for immigrants on the other.

All Trudeau did was reaffirm our precious Canadian values, the ones that set us apart from the monstrous regime of Donald Trump.

The fact that Rempel doesn't understand that, and that Andrew Scheer didn't fire her, shows that both have no respect for those values.

And that they are nothing less than traitors, and unfit to govern this country.

You know, when I returned to Canada and found out that our shabby Trumplings had got away with that grotesque racist ad, I was shocked and disgusted and wondered what is happening to this country.

But at least there is this:

Nobody can now deny that the Cons would sell us out to Donald Trump, and that they must be defeated if our Canada is to survive.

And Michelle Rempel can no longer pose as our Little Miss Muffet, and cry spider!!!

For she has become a spider herself...

She has never looked more ghastly, or more of an Alt-right bigot.

And she can't be forced to resign or fired soon enough...


  1. Con Historical Record

    Defeat the NRP, Norway implemented it, enuff said
    Free Trade - now its an extesential crisis for Canada because we have totally integrated
    destroy the gun registry -gun crimes soar
    weaken laws against handgun ownership -ownership goes from 5000 imports a year to 70,000 many resold to criminals because there is no system to track guns

    1. That should be the National Energy Plan. The plan that if implemented if I could be so rude would have had all the citzens of Canada living today with maids making $50 grand a year.

    2. Hi Steve...please try to stick to the topic of the day. I appreciate your comments, but I like to see a discussion on the post I have just written, before we move on to the next one. Thanks.

    Imagine how the Con media would have reacted if the Liberals or the NDP had put out a racist ad like that one. But a lot of the dirty old men in the press gallery slobber all over Rempel so she got away with it. What those Con traitors are doing to this country is unbelievable, but like their master Trump the day of judgement is coming.

    1. hi anon@10:46 PM...Rempel has been greatly aided by some in the parliamentary press gallery who have indeed slobbered all over her. Don Martin comes to mind as the most egregious example. But then Rempel once fooled me. At the beginning of her political career I thought she might become a better kind of Con. I was wrong, and now she is one of the worst...

    Whenever Christian zealots like Scheer start going after refugee claimants it makes me wonder if they've ever opened the Bible. Because Mat. 25:40-45 gives explicit instructions on how to treat immigrants and refugees, and sets out a severe penalty for those who disobey:

    40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

    41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

    42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

    43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

    44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

    45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

      None of them RTFM, otherwise the same equivalent in the 'States wouldn't be singing Trump's praises or voting for Roy Moore, and the fascists in Italy wouldn't be decorating their anti-refugee campaign materials with crucifixes even as Pope Francis himself told them to knock it off. They don't care about all that Mister Rogers peoplekindness stuff. They only obsess about other people's sex lives and double down on racism, xenophobia and other forms of noxious bigotry because it satisfies their personal insecurities and lust for power.

      Scheer is a schitty Catholic whose rhetoric is contributing to violent hate crimes like the one in Mississauga where a Muslim man was beat to within an inch of his life in front of his whole family. Now the family of the Danforth shooter is being harassed, and so are other people who happen to share the shooter's "scary" Muslim-sounding name. Ezra Levant certainly rejects the call to tikkun olam -- repairing the world -- that is expected of Jews who are called to uphold the Covenant and repudiate the hatreds that led to the Holocaust. Mark Zuckerberg in turn is self-explanatory, with his weasely "free speech" defense of letting Nazis run rampant on his website as long as he continues to reap ad revenue from it.

      They are all Pharisees, all infidels, all Rebel scum. Betrayers of the revealed truths in the holy books they use to beat people up with, and generally betrayers of any sense of universal goodness in humanity. Trudeau is the only one in this scenario who is more than qualified to inherit that famous cardigan sweater.

    2. Hi anon@10:59 PM...Thank you for those Biblical quotes. I appreciate the sentiment, and might still be a Christian instead of an atheist if I had seen more Christians actually practicing what they preach. Unfortunately all too many use the Bible to persecute other people, and in the U.S. the evangelicals are probably Trump's strongest supporters. I hope that the good Christians will one day be able to take back their church, and I wish them the best of luck...

  4. The lies and spin of the right are dangerous. Today I heard about a man who appealed being fired by Exxon. The right is spinning it as he was not a permanent resident of citizen so he had no rights. However what he did have was a 3 year visa to work. Even confronted with this detail, the right pushes on saying why have any laws anymore.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Rempel knew what she was doing is wrong. But she is desperate to regain the status she once enjoyed when Stephen Harper was the Con leader, and she knows for that to happen she must pleasure the misogynistic, homophobic, and racist Andrew Scheer. Which makes her little more than a shabby Con whore. When you sacrifice your professed principles on the altar of ambition that's what happens, so let nobody feel sorry for her.

    1. Anonymous9:45 AM

      I don’t feel sorry for her. I think she has sold out to the Trump traitors who are trying to steal the next election, and she is nothing but a lousy racist. If our equally lousy media wasn’t so biased she would be exposed for what she really is, an uber ambitious Con who smears decent Canadians all the time, but blocks anyone who dares criticize her.

    2. Is there anyway to prosecute or punish a wilfully misleading photo-montage (or démontage?) as one would a deliberately false news story? Classic racist fearmongering about lone Black men (or lone Brown Muslim youth) when it is obvious that monsieur is part of a group, probably a family, with women and children.

    3. Hi anon@4:26 AM...I could never feel sorry for Rempel after that racist ad, but I think you're right. She is trying to regain the status she once enjoyed under Harper, and that does mean prostituting her own stated beliefs in order to please the bestial bigot Scheer...

  6. Anonymous10:36 AM

    I don’t know if Simon is aware since he was in Scotland that Rempel actually compared Justin Trudeau to Harvey Weinstein. She is the first to cry foul if anybody criticizes her, but she feels she can smear her opponents and get away with it. When I look at that picture of her at a press conference, and I see how she is behaving, I can’t help feeling that she has a drinking problem. If that is the case she should resign and seek help.

    1. Jackie Blue6:57 PM

      The story blew up in Consellout's face and he now rivals Rempel for having blocked half the country on Twitter. His mob accused a sexual-health advocate of having an affair with Trudeau simply because she's given presentations to Liberal gatherings and was livid with Warren for using this woman's story without her consent as a low-blow weaponized attack to get revenge on Trudeau and, more specifically, Gerry Butts. Furthermore, there was no actual "grope" at all. It was a stupid double entendre that got misconstrued. The supervisor said that Trudeau touched her "cheeks" -- what actually happened was that she was having a meltdown at the concert because she couldn't get his attention. So he cupped her face -- not her ass -- to get her to stop crying. Basically she was miffed that she didn't get an interview with the star attraction right away. This whole thing is blood libel, like Paul Krugman said. But there's a bonus silver lining to all of this: our old pal Ezra took it upon himself to sell "Grope" T-shirts with Trudeau's mug in place of Obama's "Hope" pose. Well, a bunch of people contacted the "Obey Giant" company, and Ezra is now likely to face an infringement of intellectual property lawsuit from Shepard Fairey, the original artist behind the poster! What's that old saying about how only an idiot acts as his own defense attorney?

      And the rapid-fire news cycle that's only gotten more "swamped" in the Trump era, coupled with summer boredom and a deadly heat wave, has all but buried it at this point. Now everyone's talking about Facebook in freefall (yay!), the Toronto shooting massacre, and whatever the hell Trump is up to with Putin and thrashing about with the MEPs as they tried to come to some sort of ceasefire on auto tariffs. Fidel who? Aga what now? GROPEGHAZI!!!

      As for Rempelthinskin, she's certainly unhinged, and if the whisper network going around #cdnpoli twitter and the grapevine of Ottawa is any indication, she might have some blue dresses in her closet of her own. If there's anything we know about rightwingers it's that EVERYTHING out of their mouths is more projection than an IMAX theater showing movies on the surface of the moon.

    2. Hi anon@10:36 AM... I hadn't heard about Rempel comparing Justin Trudeau to the serial abuser Weinstein, but I find it disgusting. She really has fallen into the gutter. Although nobody should be surprised, for if you check out her YouTube channel it's one disgusting video after the other...

  7. I detest Rempel (and Scheer) but there is plenty to criticise her about in terms of her racism and cheap smears without speculation about personal issues.

    The Trudeau "groping" story is going nowhere. Nobody I know in his riding (a couple of streets north of chez moi) thinks there is any substance to it. Even those in community groups who don't necessarily have a high opinion of Trudeau. People who don't live in central-northern Montréal might not know that Gerry Sklavounos, the PROVINCIAL (or more precisely Québec) MNA for Laurier-Dorion, which comprises much of the federal riding of Papineau) is under heavy suspicion and many accusations of being a serial sexual harasser and possibly aggressor. He's been kicked out of the Québec Liberal caucus.

    I hope the creep does stand for office as that would divide the traditional Québec Liberal vote and make it easier for Andrès Fontecilla of Québec solidaire, a longstanding community organiser and anti-poverty activist, to take the (provincial) riding.

    None of this, of course, has anything to to with Trudeau, though there is an overlap in federal and Québec Liberal activists, just as there is of NDP, QS and Projet Montréal supporters on the left.

    1. Hi lagatta...I have no time for any serial sexual harassers, irrespective of political affiliation, so I'm glad that Gerry Sklavounos has been kicked out of the Quebec Liberals caucus. What annoyed me the most about the fake so called Gropergate scandal, was the way so many gross sexist pigs were trying to use it to discredit Trudeau's feminist credentials and attack the #MeToo movement. Sadly for them their motives were all too obvious and they were left looking like idiots...

  8. Jackie Blue6:39 PM

    I didn't check in yesterday, but now I see Simon's back! YAY! We've missed you! And not a moment too soon. Hope you enjoyed your vacation away from all this fracas as long as possible. Wish we could send Trump, Ford, Scheer, Rempel, Kinsella and all the racist, lying fear- and hatemongers to the bottom of Loch Ness to pay a visit to the mythical monster. Although I don't know if I'd want her to get indigestion from all that junk food. But I digress.

    Those of us in the U.S. who are world-weary of gun violence stand with the city of Toronto #DanforthStrong, and were quite inspired by the fact that John Tory right away said that it was a gun problem rather than a "Muslim problem" in need of a final solution. But of course that doesn't sit well with the federal Rebel scum, and leave it to Doughboy to slash $335M from proposed mental health funding at a time when it's needed most! Meanwhile the Star quoting from the Globe & Mail reports that a former RCMP commissioner has raised warning that an NRA-style lobby "has its hooks in the Conservatives" and would make bigly trouble for the Liberals or NDP if they dared do anything concrete to address access to guns. Stupid Proud Boys and their stupid loud toys.

    The cons are bloodthirsty savages. They're indistinguishable from the GOP. And if I were the intelligence services, I'd be keeping an eye on Harper in case he has his designs on joining up with Bannon's new Nihilist International organization that has everyone from Merkel to Macron to even Pope Francis (!) in its sights. What the hell was Emperor Toxo doing at the occupied residence of Herr Pussygrabber anyway?

    Buckle up, Canada. It's going to be a bumpy ride.

    1. Hi Jackie...yes I'm back, and I also missed you. I did have a great holiday although I probably tried to do too much, and now I need another one ;) I would like to see Trump, Ford, Scheer, Rempel, Conchella and all the others bobbing up and down in Loch Ness because it's really deep. But I believe Nessie is a vegetarian and would turn up her nose at them.
      Seriously though, it was quite a transition from the quiet peaceful highlands to the horror of Con North America.
      The same thing is going on in Britain with the Brexiteers having been revealed to be a bunch of lying scum and Putin stooges.
      But I had a lot of time to think about the big picture, and I think that the tide is slowly turning in our favour. We are in for a bumpy ride in Canada as we head towards the next election, but if we can defeat the Trumplings in this country, and their master in your country, I think people will be surprised how quickly the walls of Con Jericho come tumbling down. If we can do them enough damage, the new generation will grind them into the ground...

  9. Welcome home, Simon. Some say that 'ignorance is bliss'.....and they may be right! I find it truly amazing that some of my friends/acquaintances Believe everything they hear on the news media and refuse to be open minded about what is happening in their surroundings! So be it!

  10. Jackie Blue12:35 AM

    Simon, I just read that Andrew Scheer's favorite low-rent MTV/MuchMusic VJ, Faith Goldy, is, um, gunning for Robbie's old job as mayor of Toronto! Apparently John Tory isn't "Tory" enough for the crazy cons, because he actually says things that make sense like calling for gun control in the wake of a mass shooting. Hoo boy. Love to see your take on this latest instance of Rebel-created idiocy.

    Anti-Racist Canada's running a $100 parody poster contest if anyone wants to try their hand at making a campaign ad for her or some of the other neo-Nazi nutballs running for various elected offices. You're a pretty talented graphic designer, Simon. You should give the photoshop contest a... shot...

  11. Hi Jackie...yes I saw that, and almost ruptured myself laughing. Just what we need a white supremacist mayor of Toronto. But of course it is a sign of the alt-right times we are living in. So we are going to have to teach her a lesson she'll never forget, and find out which Cons are her supporters and where is she getting her campaign funds from. As for ARC's parody poster contest, I'll see if I can come up with something. But right now all I can think of is Faith Goldy the Beast from Belsen, and that's probably not suitable... ;)
