It's been about a year since I first started writing about Andrew Scheer's relationship with the Alliance MP Larry Spencer, a man so homophobic he wanted to jail LGBT Canadians.
It hasn't been easy trying to find out what Scheer did when he was Spencer's constituency secretary. Documents have disappeared, and most of what remains has been scrubbed squeaky clean by unseen hands.
And what was just as frustrating, and at times even more depressing, was that hardly anybody seemed to care.
But now that seems to be changing, at least judging by the reaction to this tweet.

I watched Justin Trudeau's town hall in Saskatoon last night, and I have never been more impressed with our prime minister.
Not just because of the brilliant way he handled the questions from the more than 600 people in the auditorium.
But also because he's still looking good, or still alive, after the grotesque onslaught from our grubby Con media.
Which included this outrageous suggestion that he should resign from the Con hack David Akin.

I must admit when I first saw the picture of Justin Trudeau dressed up as Aladdin I found it hilarious.
Oh sure, I knew some of the friendly snowflakes I know would soon be screeching at me:
"Simon How DARE you find THAT funny #@!!!!"
To which I would coolly reply: "Please go away, go fight the real racists, or just get a life, before you drive me CRAAAAZY #@!!!!"
But sadly I was not able to remain cool for long. Not when I saw the way our shabby Con media was covering the story.

As you may know Bianca Andreescu is Canada's newest and brightest professional tennis star.
The first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title.
So the other day about 10,000 people in Mississauga held a "She The North" rally to celebrate their hometown hero
Heather Leung is the Con candidate in the B.C. riding of Burnaby-North Seymour, and a bit of a mystery woman.
One who hasn't granted the media an interview since she was nominated in May.
So most people wouldn't have known anything about her, if she hadn't made a terrible mistake.

Well it's definitely not as good as the original Wizard of Oz. How could it be with Maxime Bernier playing the scarecrow?
And screaming all day long about how he wants a brain AND a debate.
But it does have a happy ending, sort of...
I have to admit I'm stunned. I honestly thought that Andrew Scheer had hit rock bottom when he refused to apologize for comparing LGBT Canadians to dogs.
And exposed his naked homophobia.
But I was wrong. Somehow Scheer managed to sink even lower into the steaming bowl of excrement.
And now he's accusing Justin Trudeau of dating Faith Goldy !!!!!

I can only imagine how desperate Andrew Scheer must have been to think he could solve his big bigot problem, with a hastily arranged late night scrum in a plane heading for British Columbia.
But you can see the desperation in his eyes.
And not surprisingly the hasty scrum didn't work out well.
In fact it was an absolute disaster.

Almost every day for more than two years Andrew Scheer has attacked Justin Trudeau in the vilest and most cowardly manner.
But now that the Liberals are exposing the bigotry and religious fanaticism of one Con candidate after the other, he's not happy, as you can see from the look on his face.
And from the way the Con campaign is going up in flames.

A few days ago flyers like that one began appearing on Canadian university campuses.
The Cons didn't want to talk about why they were attacking professors, like the far-right does all the time in Trump's America.
But eventually Andrew Scheer couldn't dodge questions from the media any longer, and this is what he told them.

As I said in my last post, I had trouble staying awake during the Maclean's Debate. It was that boring.
So while I was struck by the weird way way Andrew Scheer was behaving, and how he began every answer no matter the question with the words "Justin Trudeau."
I missed some ugly Scheer moments.
Like when he went after asylum seekers. Again
It was without a doubt the worst and most amateurish debate I have ever watched, a tedious ordeal if ever there was one.
The set was tacky, the Con fluffer Paul Wells couldn't moderate his way out of a paper bag.
And while Jagmeet Singh and Elizabeth May did have their moments, both failed to impress.
But were at least better than the ghastly Con Andrew Scheer.

Anyone who has studied Andrew Scheer, and his strongly held religious views, knows that if he had his way, there would be no abortion rights in Canada.
He is that kind of religious fanatic, more American than Canadian.
But he is very careful to keep his extremist views under wraps, until he has a majority government and enough anti-choice MPs to severely restrict the rights of women.
So I was surprised to see that on his first full day of campaigning, he collided head-on with the abortion issue, when the Liberals released this shocking video.
When I saw Justin and Sophie Trudeau arriving at Rideau Hall to see the Governor General for a moment I thought we might have a real Canadian election.
One that would reflect this country and its values.
But of course I was just dreaming, or tragically deluded.
For it wasn't long before the picture turned ugly.

I'm starting to feel sorry for poor Elizabeth May. She is Canada's most popular leader, and this election was supposed to be her election.
The other day she told Vassy Kapelos that she had to save the whole world.
But who will save her Green Party?
When it has been battered by one scandal after the other, and there are now two more good reasons no progressives should vote for it.

I've always been amused at the way some people deify Jody Wilson-Raybould. How they worship her as a living god.
Or claim that only she knows The Truth.
Well here's some truth, but hold that halo.
When John Bolton first reported for duty as Donald Trump's National Security Adviser, I must admit I thought we were doomed.
I thought that Bolton was a deranged hawk who would encourage the maniac Trump rather than restrain him.
And that together they would, intentionally or not, blow us all up.
But a funny thing happened during Bolton's stint in the Oval Office...
As you know Andrew Scheer is a serial liar, who likes to lie about everything.
And one of his biggest and most recurring lies is that he came from a humble background, unlike Justin Trudeau the man he hates so much.
And with just forty days to go before the election, and his desperation growing, he's banging that hollow drum again.
In my last post I looked at the way Elizabeth May has been cozying up to Andrew Scheer and his grubby gang. And I wondered whether the Greens are, as some say, just Cons on bicycles.
But now May has been interviewed by the CBC's Vassy Kapelos, and the situation has gone from bad to worse.
When she declared that she wouldn't even try to stop Green Party MPs from reopening the abortion debate.
And sounded like she was channelling Andrew Scheer.

I was recently reminded of what an NDP friend of mine used to be fond of saying: "The Greens are just Cons on bicycles."
At the time I didn't give it much thought, I just thought the whole idea was hilarious.
But I'm not laughing anymore. Now I wondering where Elizabeth May is taking her Green Party, and what she might do in the event of a minority government.
And in that regard I didn't find this video clip very reassuring.

As everybody must surely know, ever since Andrew Scheer became Con leader he has gone after Justin Trudeau day after day like a rabid hyena. Or whatever.
Spewing disgusting attack ads at him in a manner more American than Canadian.
So this couldn't be more outrageous.
Ever since Andrew Scheer hired Hamish Marshall, he has never really had to explain why he would hire as his campaign manager a man who help found the hate mongering Rebel.
A man who worked with the ugly bigot Ezra Levant to harvest hate for dollars.
The MSM has never asked Scheer any hard questions about that, and when asked even the softest questions, he runs for cover.
So most Canadians don't know much about the Scheer Rebel connection.
But now that may be about to change.
As we all know Andrew Scheer would prefer to spend all his time trying to smear Justin Trudeau with his own unique brand of political pornography.
But while that does get his base into a sticky state of ecstasy, every now and then he has to give his more moderate supporters another slightly more positive reason to vote for him.
So he appeals to their naked greed, with ads like this one.
Thursday, September 05, 2019
Like many religious fanatics Andrew Scheer never apologizes for anything.
He can be caught lying over and over again, or smearing his opponents like he has done since the day he entered politics, but the word sorry never escapes his lips.
So he has yet to apologize for this vile and fraudulent smear.

I spent much of the long weekend out on the lake, watching some small but really fast sailing boats take advantage of a very strong wind to skim across the lake.
While also watching the RAF's aerobatic team, the Red Arrows, roar across the sky above.
On their way to the CNE Air Show.
Over the years Mad Max Bernier has always liked to portray himself as a dashing hero setting out to destroy political correctness and the dairy lobby, not necessarily in that order.
And although he could be extremely irritating, he was mostly harmless.
But now that his People's Party is still staggering around in the desert barely registering in the polls he's growing desperate.
So now he's mutated into an even more deranged climate change denier, and going after 16-year-old Greta Thunberg.
Monday, September 02, 2019
As I'm sure you all know, whenever Andrew Scheer feels cornered and desperate, he crawls on all fours through the gutter, and exposes his inner depravity.
Like he did back in 2004 in his first political contest, when he accused his opponent, the decent Lorne Nystrom, of being "soft on child pornography" for no sane reason.
The smear was as fraudulent as Scheer himself, but it did help win him a ticket to parliament.
So now that he's in danger of losing, and desperate, he's at it again.
A few days ago I wrote a post about the young activist Greta Thunberg after she completed her amazing voyage across the Atlantic.
Only to find myself having to delete one disgusting comment after the other.
And discover to my horror that climate change deniers and other grotesque Cons all over the world have been trying to bully that brave young woman.
Even going so far or so low to mock her Asperger's syndrome, as this dirty old Trumpling does here.
