Conservatives wrong to appease Liberals

Some day, Canada’s Conservatives are going to learn they will not return to power by appeasing Liberals. But not today.

Interim (actually, very interim) Conservative leader Rona Ambrose demonstrated this last week when she removed Tory Senator Lynn Beyak from the Senate’s aboriginal peoples committee.

This because Beyak said residential schools did “some good things” and while “well-intentioned” made “horrible mistakes”.

    I was involved with the party for years. When real conservatism came to Ontario in the form of Alliance (formerly Reform), I was among the first in line. Several years later when Stephen Harper became the leader of the new Conservative Party of Canada and united Alliance with the old Progressive Conservatives, I was thrilled but the differences between the old and new were striking. To me, the Liberal mindset of the old PCs was obvious. I thought at first that time would bridge the gap and that we would have a truly united party. It did not. When Liberal thinking began to overtake my EDA, I left.

    You have these types in the states: careerists whose viewpoints are derivative and who act as conduits for the culture of the professional-managerial class, which is in turn generated by the schools and the media. The only way this stops is if the Rona Ambroses of the world lose their positions. She needs to be expelled from the Conservative Party pour encourager les autres.

    It doesn’t matter what you do, they will still call you “Hitler”.

      Exactly, but they remain deaf and dumb to the fact.

    Most Conservative proto leaders don’t seem to understand that the production of folksy bullshit is their main job if they haven’t the stones to defrock the poseurs in other parties, the bureaucracies or the rent seekers/ oligarchs.

  • Which is why one needs independents.

      The only thing I’ll give her is that she’s just keeping the seat warm for Bernier and trying not to fuck things up for him.
