The persecution of Kellie Leitch

Is it any wonder the Trudeau government isn’t serious about illegal immigration? Minister Freeland’s grand pappy was a Nazi collaborator  who lied to get into Canada.

In George Orwell’s 1984, doublethink was the ability to hold two contradictory views at the same time, which is the way Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberals think about Canada’s immigration and refugee system.

On the one hand, they tell us, the system is working fine and so any attempts to reform it – see Tory leadership contender Kellie Leitch’s call for interviewing would-be immigrants, refugees and visitors to screen them for anti-Canadian values – must be rooted in “Islamophobia” and racism.

And yet, they make this allegation knowing, for example, that among the many gaping holes in our immigration and refugee system, there are an estimated 200,000 to 500,000 undocumented (illegal) foreign workers in Canada, while the Canada Border Services Agency has lost track of 44,000 people, mostly failed refugee claimants, who simply disappeared rather than comply with removal orders from Canada.

    Poor Kellie. Such a nice, sensible woman. But when did we ever (I mean EVAH) cast a ballot for nice, sensible people? Is there anybody out there who remembers poor old Bob Stanfield (G-d, I’m so friggin’ old. . .) who fumbled the ball at the Grey Cup so my peers voted for P.E.T.? Remember, huh? Remember?

    Well, sitting back and watching this pathetic horse race in which I don’t have a pony because I have not yet and will not renew my membership, I’d say that poor Kellie is done, like dinner. She simply does not have that undefinable element that acts like a magnet for the populist (or is that the ‘popular’?). First and foremost, she has a squeaky voice. So that automatically disqualifies her.

    Think about somebody like Kathleen Wynne (although I’m sure you would rather not) who is as ugly as sin, is pathologically incapable of telling the truth, but spouts her lies in honeyed tones. People have actually told me (honest) that they just love her voice.

    Then there is our Prime Minister. who admittedly does not have “The Voice”. His breathy vocalizations punctuated by numerous ‘ums’ and ‘ahs’ do not seem to bother his adoring fans. Maybe it’s his dreamy blue eyes, or perhaps it’s the suggestive bulge in his dangerously well-fitting jeans. I just don’t know. As I said, it’s that ‘undefinable element’.

      I remember Stanfield, and I remember how the Liberals’ PR branch, the MSM, did their number on him to make him look like a bumbling fool. Yes, even when the airlines lost his luggage, it would presented as though he had some how been responsible and should be ridiculed.

        Yes, the media certainly did their part. We must also remember the context. We had just thrown a world-class party (Expo 67) and we were riding high. We felt that we deserved someone more exciting than a sensible old man. We wanted our Kennedy, although the poor bastard had been mouldering in his grave for 5 years, so Trudeaumania swept the country and we (my peers, not me) elected a Mr.Dress-Up and cheerfully swallowed the precepts that led us down the yellow brick road to authoritarianism.

          I’ve never seen Trudeaumania in that perpspective before, and now that I have it’s a bit of an embarassment. A similar thing seems to be happening right now with all the fawning over Trump wannabe Kevin O’Leary. It just makes me want to cringe.

          Sometimes people want Change just because it is exciting and pretty and dumb .

          • Alain

            Indeed, change for the sake of change never ends well.

      Yep, the famous fumble that meant he couldn’t possibly, possibly, possibly ever be a Prime Minister.

    Is it possible to have her grandfather’s citizenship revoked posthumously?

    All I want is a Conservative that can beat Justin.
    This eliminates Kelly Trump.

    • Alain

      Sadly I think you are correct. I do like Kelly. I find her to be a decent and nice person, and I like her policies compared to most of the other candidates. However she comes across as far too meek and without any real force to sway the voters. I say this after having watched her video clip presentations.

    I don’t like any of the choices. I vote for an asteroid to strike Ottawa.

      I like Walter.
