Tories self-destructing – Aping Trudeau on immigration a disgrace

The federal Conservatives these days are a textbook example of the political reality that if you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything.

While Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberals soar in the opinion polls, the Tories are hurling themselves into the black hole of political irrelevancy by turning on each other and pretending to be Liberals.

The latest example is a bizarre brawl in the party over leadership contender Kellie Leitch’s logical proposal that immigrants to Canada should be screened for “anti-Canadian values”.

    We don’t have a conservative party in Canada. We have fascist and communist parties, and then there’s the batshit crazy greens.

      There are only the parties that women voters will allow.

        A bunch of virtue-signaling cows.

    • We just have a craven political class who see public office as a lifestyle choice. They will say anything if they think it will ensure a place at the trough.

      • FactsWillOut

        That’s just another way of saying “communist” or “fascist”.

        I think it has more to do with the prevalence of the “ball-less” in both the Canadian population and its political class.

    There absolutely should be a contract between all immigrants and the government of Cuba with regard to universal human rights. If you break the contact, let’s say by attending places of worship that condone the subjugation of women, then you forfeit your privilege to stay here. If you take your girls abroad to be cut, if you practice polygamy, if you force your girls to wear restrictive clothing, if you prevent your girls from participating in sport, you get my drift. English and/or French should be strengthened, not weakened.

    They are squabbling over a basic support for Western values, and this is being raised by a very suspect “conservative” woman
    they need to wander in the wilderness until they regain their core values as of now they are just cranky opportunists.

    • They will not recover.

      • FactsWillOut

        No, they won’t, because they are not conservative.
        to paraphrase Reagan “I didn’t leave the conservative party, the conservative party left me swingin in the wind.”

        We can’t go through that splitting of the right again.
        It is time to split the country.

    That didn’t take too long. Ten years after assuming power the federal Tories are in need of yet another reformation.

    • Not worth the time, like in Ontario they are part of the political class, no change will come from within.

      • Flyboy

        Fear you are correct. Indeed, there is more than just the “political class” standing in the way of such remedies. There are global interests in the form of media, academia, corporate, labour and religious (Islamic) entities that must be fought as well.

      Goldstein asks:

      “How does a Conservative party that wants to be taken seriously as an alternative to Trudeau and the Liberals come up with a position this stupid?”

      Answer: the CPCs are not really a conservative party. They have been infested by the Progs who have taken over and are in the business of destroying what remains of the organization.

      Progressivism, which is not an adjective, is as insane and as destructive as the current version of liberalism.

    Not new, none of this.
    As long as the TPP/NAFTA….etc….etc…get passed, both the Liberals and Conservatives will have done their job.
    Harper did nothing to change party direction, regardless of your level of blindness to that, it is still true.
    If Justin supports NAFTA and TPP etc. what party did Brian Mulroney represent?
    There are two paths to choose from, about 10 feet apart, and no matter which one yo on you’re will arrive at the same destination.

    The only cure for a uniparty system is radical popularism.

    I can add nothing to most of the comments already made, except to point out the lie about Trudeau and the Liberals soaring in opinion polls. This is no more the truth than the claim that Clinton’s popularity is soaring in opinion polls. When politicians and their advisors react to this rubbish, they commit political suicide. Yet they keep doing it with the odd exception. Trump comes to mind.
