In my last post I looked at how the Cons had been hit by a series of bozo eruptions, just a couple of weeks before they hold their big convention in Halifax.
And how a lot of people were wondering whether Andrew Scheer had lost control of his party. Or had corrupted it beyond recognition.
So these days it's little more than the Party of Hate, spewing toxic bigotry in every direction.
And now to make matters even more desperate for the floundering Scheer, there has been another bozo eruption.
And it's a big one.

Ever since he became Con leader after a tainted leadership race, I have been warning that the creepy Andrew Scheer could corrupt this country beyond recognition.
And to a large extent he has done that, wounding our system of government with his Republican style attack ads.
Murdering decency, blowing his racist dogwhistle, and lying like a thief over and over again.
While our shabby Con media looked the other way.
But now at last that might be changing.

It's now been four days since the clown prince of Saudi Arabia launched a deranged assault against Canada.
Trying to damage our economy, our schools, and our hospitals.
But still the grubby Con Andrew Scheer is remaining silent and refusing to defend our country.
But while his motives are only too obvious, Michael Harris wonders whether there is an orange elephant in the room.
As I'm sure you know, I never believed that Doug Ford was anywhere near qualified to be the Premier of Ontario.
And I always knew it was only a matter of time before his inner ape emerged..
But who knew he'd be riding the crazy train so soon?

It has now been three days since the clown prince of Saudi Arabia launched his deranged assault against Canada.
He's bad mouthing our country, trying to hurt our economy, his foreign minister is demanding a grovelling apology.
But still the hapless Andrew Scheer has not come to the defence of his country.
And all we've got so far from his treasonous Cons is this.

It's been almost two days since the perfumed prince of the barbarous kingdom of Saudi Arabia, launched an insane assault on Canada for having had the nerve to stand up for human rights.
But strangely enough Con leader Andrew Scheer has yet to stand up for Canada, or say a word about the Saudi offensive.
Or maybe not so strangely, since he's not exactly a human rights champion himself.
But it does raise the disturbing question, whose side is he on?

I was relaxing in the little park next to the marine police station, on the last day of a long sweltering weekend, when Callum came running up with the shocking news.
Mohammed bin Salman aka MBS, the perfumed crown prince of the barbaric Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, had declared war on Canada for not showing him enough respect.
And not only was he now trying to bully us into submission.
Saudi Arabia lashed out at Canada on Monday for criticizing the recent arrests of Saudi rights activists, and threatened to break off trade with other Western countries if they too spoke out about political repression in the kingdom.
Some of his agitated supporters appeared to be threatening a 911-style attack on MY neighbourhood !!!!!!

For a long time Andrew Scheer has been able to hide in plain sight. Hide behind his creepy smile.
He rarely gives any interviews. He deleted his platform the day he became Con leader, and all we ever see him doing is attacking Justin Trudeau, day after day after day.
So it's hard to take the real measure of the man.
We know he is a religious fanatic, an alt-right sympathizer, and that he is now trying to whip up racist feelings over the border issue, for crass political purposes.
But every now and then he reveals his inner mediocrity.
And it's both terrifying, and hilarious...

It's starting to resemble a nightmare in a beer garden, with Doug Ford already looking like one of the worst Premiers Ontario has ever known.
He has ended the fight against climate change, even as the province is hit by record temperatures.
He has halved the size of Toronto's City Council without any consultation. He has slashed funding for the poor and the mentally ill.
He is cancelling badly needed school repairs, and threatening the lives of LGBT children as only a coward could.
But the beast would like you to forget all that and focus instead on this.

I couldn't understand it. It seemed to make no sense to me. Why in the sweltering summer of the hate crime, were Andrew Scheer and his Cons fanning the flames of racism?
Why were they playing politics with the border issue, at a time when police all over the country were busy busting hate mongers.
Why was this happening In a country called Canada?
And then I saw a new Abacus poll, and it all became horribly clear.

He's on his Great MAGA tour of America, holding one large rally after the other. He lives for those moments.
But even the screams of his fanatical followers can't mask the fact the Donald Trump is slowly cracking up.
His speeches and tweets are becoming even wilder, and even more deranged.
He knows that Robert Mueller is closing in on him

I knew it wouldn't take long for Doug Ford to start breaking his promises.
Just as long as it took for that Con clown to realize that thanks to scrapping the provinces cap and trade program, he had no money to pay for them.
Or understand that running a small label factory isn't the same as running Canada's biggest province.
But did he really have to break his first promise on the backs of the poor?
