There are about a thousand things I would rather do than write another post about Pierre Poilievre.
But I feel I have no choice because our shabby Con media is letting that ugly fascist get way with murder.
And has not even bothered to challenge some of the dangerous nonsense pouring out of his every orifice.
But at last that could be changing.
For some members of the media are finally starting to challenge the grotesquely inflated myth of Poilievre.
And Andrew Coyne has done a pretty good job of taking the wind out of his sails.Indeed, whatever is new in politics that Mr. Poilievre might claim to represent, what is not new is the readiness of people to believe what they want to believe. There is always a constituency for the politician who tells people that they don’t have to do what they don’t want to do, or that they don’t have to pay for things they don’t want to pay for.
And of course, at a time when fascists of every stripe are on the march, Coyne's verdict couldn't be more deliciously humiliating.
I get why this sort of thing, like his endorsement of the anti-vaxxers, excites the fringes. It might even be enough to carry him to the party leadership. It’s just not clear yet why it makes him a serious contender for prime minister.
Although this from another Con is pretty good too….
I represent Canada in attracting foreign investment and this is an embarrassment.— Mitch Garber (@mitchgarber) April 24, 2022
And I'm a friend of Stephen Harper and Brian Mulroney. This isn't Canadian or conservative politics, it's kindergarten. https://t.co/y2GyL0jEYD
And this after he dumped on Steam Whistle beer for being too "woke" and promoted Oast beer instead is absolutely hilarious.
It seems that not even money or free publicity can make some Canadians support Poilievre.
You know, yesterday in France and Slovenia right-wing fascists were defeated, and some are suggesting that the populist tide is finally retreating.
So now it's our turn to make sure that our grubby fascist leader NEVER becomes Prime Minister.
Before he corrupts our country further...
