“The trend of delirious democracy despondency always goes hand in hand with the discrediting and dehumanization of political opponents. Conservatives and Trump voters are not people. They’re monsters. It makes it easier to swallow defeat.” – Libby Emmons and Barrett Wilson, “Democracy is alive and well despite the media’s best efforts “ – The Post Millennial, December 14th, 2019.
“One of the many examples of the CPC moral and intellectual corruption is the fact that they paid a Liberal mudslinger, Warren Kinsella, to falsely depict our leader and our party as racists and bigots before the election. Last week, Mr. Bernier hired lawyer and former Ontario Ombudsman André Marin to prepare legal action against Kinsella. It’s time to push back against these lies!” – From the People’s Party of Canada email bulletin dated December 13th, 2019.
“Then, Pelosi lost her cool and shook her finger at a reporter who simply asked her: ‘Do you hate the president?’ At that point, a furious Pelosi shouted back, ‘Don’t mess with me!’… She then retreated behind the shield of her religion by lecturing the questioner that as a good Catholic, she was simply too moral to be capable of hatred. Pelosi finished her sermon by boasting that she ‘prayed’ for the unfortunate Trump.” – Victor Davis Hanson, “Is Trump the only adult in the room?” – Toronto Sun, December 12th, 2019.
“Ryan Straschnitzki, a 20-year-old hockey player who was involved in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash is home after undergoing surgery in Thailand. Straschnitzki was paralyzed when the team bus hit a westbound semi-trailer truck on April 6, 2018. 16 people on the bus were killed due to the awful accident… The surgery that Straschnitzki required is not yet approved by Health Canada, or covered by public insurance, so it can cost close to $100,000. Because of this, Straschnitzki and his family had to make the trip to Thailand, unhappy with the Canadian health-care system.” – Sam McGriskin, “Canada isn’t funding injured Humboldt Broncos player’s spinal surgery” – The Post Millennial, December 9th, 2019.
“More importantly, he should know, as Canada’s Prime Minister, that his principal foreign affairs job is to look after Canada’s relationship with the United States. In fact, like it or lump it, good relations with the U.S. is one of Canada’s two most important assets. The other is the country’s spectacular resource endowment… And Trudeau has degraded the value of both these assets to the detriment of all Canadians. This will all prove to be very expensive as the country heads into a recession due to a worldwide slowdown combined with the damage inflicted on the country’s oil industry.” – Diane Francis, “The inevitable Trudeau recession will ravage the West and the middle class” – Financial Post, December 9th, 2019.
