Doublethink in Canada’s Conservative Party

I have a question for the current and would-be leaders of the federal Conservatives, who have denounced Kellie Leitch’s proposal to screen potential immigrants for anti-Canadian values.

If you think, as Interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose has stated, that Donald Trump’s values should disqualify him from being a conservative, let alone president of the United States, why don’t you think the values of the people to whom we grant Canadian citizenship are important?

You can’t have it both ways.

You can’t argue in one breath that Trump’s values are anti-Canadian and then say in the next it’s hard to know what Canadian values are.

    “Doublethink In Canada’s Other Liberal Party”

    After observing the US presidential primaries, I’m sensing deja vu all over again. Kellie Leitch may not be Canada’s Donald Trump but just as in the US, the politically-correct arseholes pretending to be conservatives are being exposed.

      A good thing, I suppose, but troubling too. How many of them are there and how did they get so snugly entrenched in a supposedly conservative party?

      A lot of people seem to think the Republican Party is done for (in its current form at least) so maybe the same is true for the PCs. Time for a new Reform perhaps.

        If Trump is elected there will be a purge. The Republican Party will again become the GOP of America. Conservatives in Canada should take note. The same thing could happen here.

        This doublethink is typical Progressive “thinking”. When we lived in a saner world, these straddlers could pass themselves off as conservatives. Unfortunately, they do not know whether they are fish or fowl. One cannot be both.

        We (unhyphenated conservatives) have allowed ourselves to be branded as “right wing”, which, when pressed, our betters refuse to define exactly what “right wing” is supposed to mean.

        Time for a new party. Any true conservative who supports a party that retains the label “progressive” is deluding themselves.

    Canadian Conservative party is just a “basket of deplorables”.
    Kelly is the only one with any balls.
    Would be great to see this crop of con’s sprayed with Bayer-AG Roundup, to see which ones wither up.

    Conservative elites are clambering to assume so called Canadian “values” that discredit the right to speak freely and be treated equally under the law. Time for its socially conservative base to dump them.

    I grew up being called a dirty catlicker,You take with a grain of salt. Sometimes it got physical, some I won, some I lost, but the son-of-a-bitch didn’t bother me again.
    I’m Cathoic! I know when people don’t like me because of my faith. Sad, but I don’t give a Billy-be-damned. If I wasn’t Catholic; I’d be Jewish!
