A strange thing happened last night. I wrote a post that was published on Progressive Bloggers, but had disappeared early today.
So I'm repeating it under another name in the hope that it won't happen again.
And what I wanted to say was that although I have always known that Andrew Scheer was a racist, he was able to hide that racism from most Canadians.
Until suddenly he couldn't.
When one of his Con MPs attacked Canada's top doctor in the most disgusting manner.
Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, has failed Canadians.— Derek Sloan (@DerekSloanCPC) April 21, 2020
Dr. Tam must go! Canada must remain sovereign over decisions. The UN, the WHO, and Chinese Communist propaganda must never again have a say over Canada's public health!#cdnpolihttps://t.co/2u1JxCAdIV
Scheer refused to condemn Derek Sloan's racist remarks.
Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer refused Thursday to address controversial comments by a member of his caucus who is also seeking to replace him as leader.
While there were calls for Scheer to denounce Sloan's earlier remarks, in a tense back-and-forth with reporters Thursday the outgoing party leader refused to discuss them at all.
And never looked more cowardly...
But this time even the Con media couldn't pretend it didn't happen, and even the Con fluffer John Ivison suggested that maybe it was time that Scheer resigned.
In a multi-ethnic country where visible minorities make up a quarter of the population, no party tainted by racism can win power. Yet when Scheer was asked to denounce Sloan’s statement, he turtled, saying he did not want to comment on the behaviour of a leadership candidate.
If Scheer doesn’t see the need to decry comments from a sitting member of caucus that tars all Conservative MPs and the party with the brush of intolerance, he should go now.
But what Ivison and other members of the Con media seemingly failed to understand was the reason Scheer didn't want to condemn Sloan.
And that's because to condemn him would be to condemn HIMSELF.
For he personally selected Sloan, who like him is a religious fanatic who gets a green light from the ghastly bigots at Campaign Life.
Both get their inspiration from Ezra Levant's hate mongering Rebel.
And what the Cons are really trying to do is whip up hate against all Chinese-Canadians to pleasure their bloodthirsty base.
It's happening all over the United States.
And it's also happening here.
It's cowardly, it's despicable, but at least it makes one thing clear.
The Cons are now officially the Bigot Party.
And no decent person in Canada should ever vote for them...
