The Christchurch Massacre and the Bigot Cons
It's a sickening act of terrorist violence that has shocked the world.
Dozens of people killed in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Slaughtered while they prayed, just because they were were Muslims.
But don't tell Andrew Scheer that, because he couldn't even bring himself to use the word Muslim.
But then of course who can be surprised?
When just a few weeks ago Scheer addressed a rally on Parliament Hill that was riddled with racists and far-right extremists.
The kind of yellow vested bigots who reacted in this way to the massacre in New Zealand...
Scheer has also cuddled up to anti-Muslim bigots in Quebec...
Even after a gunman, inflamed by the same kind of right-wing garbage as the one in New Zealand, killed six people at a mosque in Quebec City.
When the House of Commons passed the non-binding motion M-103 condemning Islamophobia, Scheer cheerfully voted against it.
And his campaign manager Hamish Marshall once worked for Ezra Levant's hate mongering Rebel which is a font of anti-Muslim bigotry.
So as I said, who can be surprised that for Scheer bigotry is just another way to win votes?
Or that the man who has spent the last few weeks calling Justin Trudeau a criminal, deserves to be called one himself...
For whipping up hatred against Trudeau, and having done nothing to fight the hate that is poisoning this country.
You know, the Cons and the dirty old toxic Trudeau haters despise Trudeau for all kinds of reasons.
They hate him for standing up for the rights of women. They hate him for reaching out to LGBT Canadians like no other prime minister ever has.
And they hate him for trying to make other minorities, including Muslims, feel welcome in their own country.
And for becoming a symbol of tolerance all over the world.
And for that alone, at a time when hatred is on the march, he deserves to be re-elected prime minister in October.
While Andrew Scheer on the other hand deserves to be rejected by all decent Canadians.
For he is an alt-right sympathizer, he is encouraging the evil bigotry that can lead to tragedies like the one in New Zealand.
And if he is not stopped he will set this country on fire...
