The right in this country is becoming unhinged over something. Harper called the NDP pro-Hitler, which would be passing strange even in American politics. Last week an Ontario business leader denounced the new Liberal-NDP tax on the rich in that province as “ethnic cleasing.”
But surely the best crackpot moment so far can be found from Cardus writer Peter Stockland in today’s Calgary Herald:
Redford seems to have no taste for anything like proper balance or, for that matter, the charter itself. From the beginning of the campaign, she seemed partial to fiat rather than full democratic discussion. If I understood well, she declared issues such as abortion and gay rights off the agenda not because they are beyond provincial jurisdiction, but because they are not permitted in political conversation.
The phrase “Stalinist instinct” must be used very sparingly, but still.
Yes, Joseph Stalin and his well-known radical stance on the subject of gay rights.
I hear a network of incredibly harsh prison camps are already being built in the wilds of northern Alberta, and that the Alberta government will soon be stocking them with Jewish bankers, kulak farmers, and other enemies of the state like Stockland.Tweet
