Pierre Poilievre Exposes His Inner Evil Again

I didn't really want to watch the coronation of Pierre Poilievre, let alone write about it. 

It was just too boring and too ugly.

And of course everyone knew who was going to win. The fix was in.

But it didn't take long for Poilievre to show us what kind of Prime Minister he would be.

And all Canadians should be warned, for it was really scary.

Firstly, when his victory was announced his supporters started chanting "Freedom" "Freedom."

Which was not only bizarre, it also clearly showed that the Con cult is now officially the Convoy Party.

A branch of the Trump Party.

And as Canadian as a three dollar bill.

But it was Poilievre's brief news conference yesterday, that really showed us what we can expect from that grubby little demagogue.

Reporters wanted to ask him about the resignation of the Con's Quebec Lieutenant Alain Reyes. 

But Poilievre only agreed to answer two questions, and when David Akin, Global's News' chief political correspondent, objected, Poilievre called him a "Liberal heckler."

Before running out of the room like only a cowardly Con could. 

And then using it to try to squeeze more money out of his dumb followers as only Trump or a Con grifter could. 

While sending his flying monkeys after the now independent MP Alain Reyes.

A Quebec MP who left the Conservative Party of Canada Tuesday after Pierre Poilievre won the leadership over the weekend says he is facing harassment and bullying from people within the party.

It was a dreadful way to start his first day on the job. It couldn't have been worse. 

But I'm not surprised. The foul Con cult has been inflating itself by making it sound like Poilievre's big leadership numbers have progressives trembling in their boots. 

Which is absolute nonsense, when the numbers don't mean a thing: 

And as Chantal Hebert recently wrote in the Toronto Star, Poilievre's victory has only energized Justin Trudeau, and made him even more determined NOT to leave Canada in Poilievre's hands.

Conventional wisdom has it that Trudeau wants to stay on because he is confident he can beat Poilievre. There is no doubt hubris has played a part in the decision of past prime ministers to tempt fate by campaigning for a fourth term. 

 But there is more than a prime ministerial vanity project in play in such decisions.

In Trudeau’s case, it is likely not just that he thinks he can prevail in a battle against Poilievre but almost certainly that he believes he must.

So the Con plan to try to get Trudeau to resign by smearing him, and making him and his family feel unsafe, has failed miserably.

And so much for the leader of the Convoy Party. After being far too too polite for far too long, Trudeau is finally taking up the challenge and putting on the gloves. 

He put down Harper, he put down Scheer, he put down O'Toole, and I get the feeling he can't wait to flatten the grubby bully Poilievre.

And if decent Canadians unite behind him.

It won't even be close...

How Pierre Poilievre and His Convoy Party Are Killing Canada

Although fall marks the end of summer, and heralds the impeding arrival of winter, I have always loved the season.

The fall colours are just another reason I love Canada so much.

But this year I'm finding it hard to celebrate the stunning beauty of our country.

Can Pierre Poilievre Control His Convoy Crazies?

I can only imagine how pleased Pierre Poilievre must have been, to be the first Con to welcome the far-right truckers to Ottawa.

He cheered their arrival, he defended their occupation, he brought them donuts and coffee.

And for a while at least the move paid off, as the convoy kooks bought lots of memberships and helped give him a big lead in the Con leadership race.

But that was then, and now it's a nightmare.

For now it turns out his convoy buddies were riddled with potentially dangerous terrorists. 

Now we find out that while Poilievre was pandering to the convoy crazies, and claiming they weren't a threat, the RCMP was worried that some of their own officers were part of the problem.  

So Poilievre must be held accountable for having fanned the flames of toxic Trudeau hatred, and inspiring others to go after the prime minister in the most bestial manner.

While he whoops it up with the ghastly far-right thug Jeremy MacKenzie, the founder of the Diagolon terrorist movement.

It's a deeply disturbing picture, so much so that some in the media are warning that Poilievre is taking this once peaceful country to a very dark place.

Poilievre has gone too far. It’s time he started to cool down his rhetoric and chill out the more radical segments of his base before someone — a politician, a police officer, a journalist, an ordinary citizen — gets seriously hurt, or worse.

Others wonder whether can contain the beast he has unleashed...

Like the dwarves who dug too deep for riches in the mines of Moria, Poilievre has plumbed the depths of social media for conspiracy theories and grievance rhetoric, coming up with campaign gold by embracing the freedom convoy and anti-vaxxers. It has earned him a ton cash for party coffers and a record number of new memberships.

The question now is whether Poilievre can contain the populist beast he has unleashed by channelling his inner Stephen Harper, or whether he’d rather hop on its back, ring firmly embedded, and burn the place down.

And quite frankly, I don't think he can. In fact I don't think he will even try to hold back the terrorist beast he has unleashed, for if he did he'd lose half his base.

And besides, he has been sowing rage for so long... 

Now he can only be described as a terrorist sympathizer himself.

And the good news?

Most ugly members of his Convoy Party may love him.

More than half of Conservative voters in Canada want Pierre Poilievre to lead the CPC party, suggests a new Ipsos poll conducted exclusively for Global News.

But most decent Canadians will make sure he is NEVER Prime Minister.

Despite Poilievre being the widely perceived frontrunner for leader among Conservative voters, less than one in four Canadians appear to have a positive impression of him, the poll suggests. That’s a drop of two points from July.

His grand plan to turn Canada into a fascist country is going nowhere.

And Canadians are laughing at him already...
