Is The Canadian Left Taking Notes From The Tea Party?
North of the American border, it's easy to be smug about the most extreme Tea Party rhetoric that characterizes the President Barack Obama as a foreign plant determined to turn the USA into a socialist (or National Socialist) hell on Earth. Of course, sober-minded Canucks would never give in to such demagoguery.
But with a new election season in Canada opening up, it seems one prominent Canadian pundit for one of Canada's biggest mainstream newspapers can't resist the urge to go full-on nutbar:
The Conservative hate machine will swivel toward you like a Dalek and advance. You're doomed. A Harper majority government wouldn't just lash out generally. It would hunt down its enemies.
Fear these people. Don't get sick. Don't grow old. Don't have children. Make yourself invulnerable.
Run for the hills! I can hear them now... "Exterminate. Exterminate. Exterminate!"
