Ignatieff's been stupid... again.
Tom Flanagan, a University of Calgary political scientist and former campaign manager for the Conservative party told the Post: “Of all the issues that you could possibly raise about women’s health, why would you start with abortion? What kind of mindset is that that you have to start killing unborn babies in order to help people? It seems to be based on the now discredited theory that poverty in the Third World is based on overpopulation. I don’t think any serious scholar believes that anymore.”Iggy's been under fire from within, too, I understand. Not all Liberals are hellbent on the wholesale slaughter of the most purely innocent worldwide, after all. Certainly not on our dime and not in our name!
In addition, the National Post has published an editorial slamming Ignatieff for being so far to the extreme left on the abortion issue.
The most recent criticism came from Archbishop of Toronto Thomas Collins, who said on Thursday that, “In light of the many positive contributions that Canada can make to the improvement of maternal and child health, it is astonishing that the Leader of the Opposition, Mr. Michael Ignatieff, has issued an official statement advocating contraception and abortion as fundamental elements in addressing this important issue.”
Clearly, Michael Ignatieff has become nothing but a Hard-Leftwing Extremist. A radical. And an Obama copycat. Canada doesn't need a leader who simply copies Obama and the 'Crats on social issues. Nor on fiscal issues, on which Iggy's also copying the Obamacrat Reich.
If it's true, as they claim, that Iggy's "being himself now", then it's clear that Iggy's a racical, revolutionary, neo-Communist Hardcore Leftwing Extremist and shouldn't get any votes from Mainstream Canadiana.
Remember, Iggy is also on record as saying that taxes will have to be raised, that we should have a second "stimulus" program and that we "must" have socialist "childcare" no matter how big the deficit is.
Or is Iggy playing Leftists for the fool, in another of those Machiavellian, disingenuous Liberal mindfeck games? Is it a ploy to attract disaffected NDPers and Leftists who don't vote?
Well, either way, it's clear that Michael Ignatieff is crazy-dangerous for Canada and that the Liberal Party of Canada is either now Hard-Left like the Obamacrats, or is just once again playing its same-old victory-at-all-costs, dishonest game.
