The Ezra Levant Horror Show and the Con Bigots

15 hours 19 min ago

As you know, when I heard that Kellie Leitch had described Ezra Levant's latest bigot fest as a meeting of "severely normal people" I was naturally sceptical.

For how could anyone call a meeting organized by Levant and his scummy Rebel gang, and starring four Con candidates, and the bloated homophobe Charles McVety, anything but a freak show? 

But then a reader sent me a video of the sordid event and I was absolutely horrified.

The Snobby Cons and the Bus Driver Minister

15 hours 25 min ago

When I was a very small boy I used to dream of driving a bus, and the bigger the better.

But it didn't take me very long to realize that the job wasn't as glamorous as I had imagined. 

And that I probably would never have the skill or the patience to be a good driver.

Which was just as well because it turned out the job could also be dangerous.

So I really can't understand why the Cons behaved so badly in the House of Commons the other day.

Is Donald Trump Suffering From Untreated Syphilis?

Sat, 02/18/2017 - 04:53

It should be obvious by now that there is something terribly wrong with Donald Trump.

This deranged tweet he fired off yesterday is only more evidence of that.

For in a normal world he would have been arrested for inciting violence against the media.

And then there was that bizarre press conference.

The Sad Fate of the Bigot Harper Party

Fri, 02/17/2017 - 03:51

This is how the Cons would like us to imagine them. As the kind of party that would send out a Valentine card like that one.

Inviting us to bee their friends.

But of course, the Cons and the truth don't go as well together as honey and peanut butter.

And this is who they really are.

Ezra Levant and the Con Bigot Show

Thu, 02/16/2017 - 04:16

It's hard to believe, it couldn't be more ugly, or less Canadian.

But just two weeks after a white supremacist killed six Muslims in a Quebec City mosque, and wounded eight others.

A group of Con leadership candidates attended a foul rally in Toronto last night to denounce a government motion aimed at doing more to fight Islamophobia.

Donald Trump and the Ghost of Richard Nixon

Wed, 02/15/2017 - 06:29

If the Mad King Donald thought that Mad Mike Flynn's sudden departure would end his so-called "RussIan problem," it appears he was sadly deluded.

For that problem just keeps getting bigger and bigger. 

Dan Rather is now comparing it to the Watergate scandal, and calling for an independent investigation. 

"Damn the lies, full throttle forward on the truth ... We deserve answers and those who are complicit in this scandal need to feel the full force of justice."

And as for the Mad King Donald, he's growing angrier and angrier.

The Day Justin Trudeau Tamed Donald Trump

Tue, 02/14/2017 - 03:09

He must have been nervous when he left Ottawa early yesterday morning to go and see Donald Trump.

He knew he would be dealing with a maniac, and that one false step could cost Canada millions of jobs.

But when the time came, Justin Trudeau made it look easy.

Donald Trump Goes After The Pets Of America

Sun, 02/12/2017 - 06:17

We know that Donald Trump is a ghastly beast, one who resembles the porky Napoleon  in Orwell's Animal Farm.

The one who betrays the other animals, like Trump is betraying millions of Americans including many of his own supporters...

But it's not just people he's threatening to kill.

He's going after all kinds of other creatures who share this world with us.

The Abominable Cruelty of Rona Ambrose

Sun, 02/12/2017 - 04:55

As you may know, I have absolutely no respect for Rona Ambrose, the monstrous leader of the Harper Party.

I can't forget how that cruel Con put her inhuman ideology before the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in this country.

By trying to close down the Insite clinic in Vancouver, and making it almost impossible to set up others like it in the rest of Canada. 

Even though she knew they could have saved the lives of thousands of Canadians addicted to dangerous drugs like heroin and fentanyl.

Well now the ghastly Ambrose is going after the mentally ill.

Bill Maher on Donald Trump's Horrible Week

Sat, 02/11/2017 - 06:03

I must confess that after only three weeks of President Donald Trump, I am being forced to contemplate a horrible possibility: 

I might go completely bonkers before he does.

Because although at the present time he has a good lead over me...

According to the resistance INSIDE the White House.

I don't know how much more of Trump or Kellyanne Conway I can take...

Rona Ambrose and the Pit of Hypocrisy

Fri, 02/10/2017 - 03:57

The other day I said that I had been struck by the strange way Rona Ambrose had been behaving. How she had practically gone to ground.

After accusing Justin Trudeau of being unable to "resist the billionaire lifestyle" by vacationing at the Aga Khan's private island.

Only to have it revealed that she had been attacking him, while sailing through the Caribbean on a billionaire's yacht.

And now that observation has been confirmed.

Samantha Bee On The Original Trump Haters

Fri, 02/10/2017 - 03:57

Scotland is a small, peaceful country, but one with a proud history of resistance dating back about two thousand years.

The people of that land have had to battle all kinds of invaders, from the Roman legions of the Emperor Hadrian, to in more modern times, the vulgar presence of the mad would be Emperor Donald Trump.

So these days when we too are called to resist him, and all can appear so dark and gloomy.

I thought you might enjoy Samantha Bee's humorous look at the original Trump haters.

Kellie Leitch and the Redneck From Wasilla

Thu, 02/09/2017 - 05:40

If you see Kellie Leitch galloping past you screaming hysterically, don't panic.

She's not warning us about an American invasion, or warning us that Kevin O'Leary has left his home in Boston and coming after the job she craves so badly.

It's just her way of telling us how incredibly happy she is.

The Scary Corruption of Donald Trump

Thu, 02/09/2017 - 05:38

It's not like it was impossible to predict what might happen when the Trump mob took over the White House.

Or guess that they might make the Sopranos look like angels.

So who can be surprised that the stench of corruption now hangs heavily in the air?

And that el capo de tutti is now totally out of control.

The Horror of Syria and the Human Slaughterhouse

Wed, 02/08/2017 - 03:18

I must admit I didn't think that anything that happened in Syria could shock me more than it already has.

The more than 400,000 dead, the countless wounded and traumatized, the sea of desperate refugees, the indifference of the world.

But if Amnesty International is right about what has been happening at the Saydnaya military prison in Damascus, it must surely be what it has been called "the worst place on earth."

Steve Bannon and the Undermining of Pope Francis

Wed, 02/08/2017 - 03:15

Much has been written recently about Steve Bannon, Donald Trump's closest adviser, and the man many believe is the real president of the United States.

The alt-right fanatic who believes that an apocalyptic "cleansing war" is coming, and is obsessed with global destruction.

But did you know that Bannon's fascist tentacles also reach into the Vatican?

The Sunny Humiliation of Rona Ambrose

Tue, 02/07/2017 - 04:50

For weeks Rona Ambrose has been attacking Justin Trudeau for taking a helicopter ride to the Aga Khan's private island, instead of swimming there.

But not any longer.

Yesterday in Question Period she was a mute as a carp.

And with good reason.

How The Europeans Are Trolling Donald Trump

Mon, 02/06/2017 - 05:30

When you see the way some of Europe's most respectable magazines are portraying Donald Trump, you get a pretty good idea what many Europeans think of him.

For their covers couldn't be more brutal or more incendiary.
