Canada’s Liberal Party recently had a collective cow during a meeting while
discussing a Feb 24th event in Alberta that featured a speech by Tucker Carlson.
For example, Minister
of Canadian Heritage, Pascale St. Onge, stated: “What happened yesterday is
completely deplorable. To have a conservative Canadian politician invite an
American extreme right Tucker Carlson to come here to Canada, holding forth in
a completely unacceptable way in particular with regard to their attempts to
have a much more violent political climate as we see Tucker Carlson doing, for
example, putting targets on Canadian politicians’ backs.” Huh?
Boissonnault, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Official
Languages (MEWDOL?), whined: “I’m here
with my colleagues, Liberal Caucus members, ministers, all, to talk about what
happened last night in Edmonton when the premier of the province of Alberta,
Danielle Smith invited Tucker Carlson right into the heart of my riding. You
can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep … I know how progressive
a riding Edmonton Centre is, I’ve represented it since 2015 and for Danielle
Smith to bring the mouthpiece of the MAGA conservative far right to Edmonton
Center to spew hate about LGBTQ2 people is beyond the pale, it’s deplorable and
we won’t stand for it.” (“Riding,” in Canadian, means electoral district,
for those of you who aren’t elite Canadian minds. And the Edmonton Centre
riding is apparently not as progressive as Boissonnault believes it to be, as
Tucker’s event was sold out.)
Well, they both
think it is “deplorable” that an allegedly conservative American was allowed to
enter Canada and speak to Canadians. I mean, it’s not like Tucker is an illegal
alien. If he was, he’d be welcomed into the Great White North. In fact, Carlson
is part Canuck, something to which he alluded in his speech. It seems
“progressives” in America and Canada are fond of smearing their
political opponents as “deplorable.” Hardly seems inclusive…or even tolerant.
The nerve of a conservative Canadian politician inviting a conservative
American to come to her province and speak to conservatives! Especially in “a
completely unacceptable way!” Their oughta be a law!
I watched and
listened to the entirety of Tucker’s short speech. Twice. He never once
advocated violence or put “a target” on any Canadian politician’s back, liberal
or otherwise. And he certainly didn’t spew hatred of “LGBTQ2” people. He did
mock Prime Minister Trudeau and suggest that Canadians start objecting to government
policies that overtly mock—and punish—them. That is as mild-- and sane--
as it gets.
saying they “won’t stand for it,” however, do sound threatening. They
won’t stand for free speech? What are they going to do about it? What
are they going to do to the conservative Canadian politician, Danielle Smith,
and/or to Tucker now that the event is over?
pathetically intolerant “liberal” thugs “won’t stand” for free speech and
dissenting opinion they should not be able to “sit” in parliament.
