As the Liberals continue their fevered pathetic assault on Nycole Turmel.
No doubt hoping that out of her ashes, their shrunken party will rise again, like some fleshless phoenix. Or some charred scarecrow.
It probably wouldn’t hurt if they read this column.
Because then they might, hopefully, ask themselves, what the hell are they are doing?
Do they really believe that by bashing a 67-year old granny, whipping up a Red Separatist Scare, and encouraging anti-French feeling, that they can win back Quebec? The province they absolutely need to recover, if they are ever to become a viable party again.
And where else do they think this tempest in a cracked teapot will help them? In Manitoba, Saskatchewan, or Alberta?
Or will it help bring the real separatists to power, help the Cons win another majority, and maybe even contribute to the destruction of our country?
Gawd. Never has the Liberal Party stooped so low. Or acted so dumb.
They lost Quebec because they couldn’t understand it. And now because they STILL don’t understand it, they are about to lose it all over again.
And worse they can’t seem to understand that granny Turmel, and her gang of young Quebec MPs, have dealt the real separatists the hardest blow they have EVER received.
Oh boy. For years I have tried to be as non-partisan as possible, and avoided being too harsh on the Liberals, hoping against hope that progressives would unite to defeat the Cons. But not any longer.
Somebody please stop this madness.
Before it damages our country further . . .
