Andrew Scheer is beyond pathetic

18 Aug

Andrew Scheer, the Tories’ leader, has announced he ‘won’t grant interviews to The Rebel under current ‘editorial direction”:

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer won’t grant further interviews to Rebel Media if the outlet’s editorial direction remains “as it is,” he said at an event for supporters in British Columbia on Wednesday evening.

The website, founded by conservative activist Ezra Levant, has come under fire since last weekend’s rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville, Va., culminated in violence and an attack on counter-demonstrators that left one woman dead and several others injured. Faith Goldy, a correspondent for The Rebel, was in Charlottesville covering the rally and counter-protests.

“Like all Canadians I viewed the events of last weekend with a great deal of disgust [at] the types of vile comments that were being made by hate groups,” Scheer told reporters following a Conservative Party event in Langley, B.C., Wednesday evening.

“And I think there is a fine line between reporting the facts and giving some of those groups a platform or any kind of legitimacy.

Ah, of course. We can’t have any independent, not-fully-converged media outlet giving the full perspective of current events where only one POV is permitted, even capturing the vehicular homicide moment on film. Perish the thought!

Now, I’m not a major fan of Ezra Levant, as he’s a bit too neo-con and Zionist for my liking. But to be fair, he has shown a streak of independence that is otherwise currently non-existent in Canadian journalism; for one thing, his organization is the only one left with any sensitivity to social conservative perspectives. And for Pete’s sake, Levant is Jewish; he’s NOT going to be beating a drum for Nazism. Levant has made it clear his publication has nothing to do with the alt-right, and given that Lauren Southern left / was let go months ago, there’s not a hint of a reason to doubt him.

I hated Prime Minister Stephen Harper for being a warmongering Zionist neo-cuck, and Andrew Scheer is indeed proving to be another Stephen Harper, with slightly more charisma, due to wearing a goofy perma-grin in place of Harper’s pained perma-grimace.

Why would anyone vote Liberal-Lite when they can vote for the real thing in Justin Trudeau?

And why would any real true Canadian traditionalist conservative / reactionary vote Tory?

Not me!

Not until they become worthy once again. They sure as hell aren’t now.

    The Rebel should announce that henceforth it will not write about or otherwise provide any additional free publicity to___ (and then list its political enemies).

      That would be interesting!

    Oh, hell, yes. Can I cosign all of your post?

    This is partly the reason why I think Petit Potate is the PM as long as he wants to be: there’s no competition or foil for him. Andrew Scheer = Jason Kenney = Brian Jean. As I’m told on SDA, Jason Kenney is a conservative’s conservative and why I keep replying that “that’s why conservatism is dead.”

    Agreed Scheer is underwhelming. Another two decades of Trudeau.

    What was your take on Bernier?

      I did like Bernier’s willingness to question the status quo as regards certain economic matters; e.g. I found his willingness to end the subsidies for Quebec’s dairy industry bold, particularly since he knew it would cost him – and it did; that took guts, sticking up for his libertarian principles.

      That said, I cannot get behind full libertarianism, and naturally he wasn’t any kind of social conservative, plus I still can’t get over his poor judgment years back when he dated that chick who turned out to be a Hell’s Angel moll, AND left confidential documents lying around in her presence. Yes, he may have gotten more prudent since then, but that shows something of his character and judgment, left to his own devices.

      My dream candidate for the Tories would have combined elements of Leitch’s liberal nationalism with some elements of Bernier’s libertarianism, with some elements of Scheer’s and Trost’s so-con leanings, with the brashness of O’Leary. You know who could pull that off? Don Cherry! 😉

      Alas, we live in the real world, and that will never happen…

        For all his bluster, Cherry would cuck soon enough. We haven’t had true patriots since King (blasphemous I know), Grant and Berton (leftiness excused for the moment). I really want to give Joe Clark a pass as he was always a decent man, but I can’t.

        Maybe I’m extra jaded living on the left coast, but geez man sometimes it makes you want to cry a lament for a once great dominion.

        Way to ruin my fantasy, bro! 😉

        I’m sure you’re right, of course. Grapes isn’t a politician, so I imagine if he did ever enter politics, and won, any government he would put together would rely heavily on others’ visions – and we see how that is playing out Stateside with their Don.

        I see we share a fondness for George Parkin Grant, who of course was already rightly lamenting the state of our dominion back in his day…
