Wildrose Party leader Danielle Smith says she takes it personally when “accusations of racism and bigotry are aimed at me and at my party.” Okay, well how about if we accuse some of your candidates of being bone dumb?
We knew, of course, that Wildrose candidate Ron Leech had told an interviewer at a multi-cultural radio station that, as a Caucasian, he can “speak to all the community” better than someone who is not. But now that video has emerged of him telling yet another interviewer the same thing, we are agog at the pure simplicity of his cluelessness:
Actually, you have to wonder at the guy who sits there nodding agreeably as Mr. Leech explains to him, as if speaking to a four year-old, that “When a Punjabi leader speaks for the Punjabi, the Punjabi are listening. But when a Caucasian speaks on their behalf, everybody is listening.” Yes, massah. But it is Leech who is mesmerizing, especially as he then turns to the camera to explain to his audience the problem with their “ethinicity.”
Truly special. We’re not sure how this will go down with the “ethinic” community in Calgary-Greenway. But he sure does have the slow-learner vote locked up.
