Canadian Sensitivities

What are you if you are amused by a poster that depicts a bunch of corrupt government officials, who just happen to be all French, as members of an Italian mob family?

If you said a comedian you'ld be wrong. An amused political junkie? Wrong again. This is getting tough eh? Well it seems that here in Canada if you find such a poster amusing it can only mean that you're a card carrying member of the Klu Klux Klan:
Immigration Minister Joe Volpe refused to apologize for linking the Conservative party with the Ku Klux Klan after Liberals were depicted as characters from TV's The Sopranos.

Mr. Volpe ignored calls for his resignation, saying he was angry over the attempt to link Liberals to organized crime.

Opposition Leader Stephen Harper wasn't about to forget about it.

"The last thing this country needs is a race-baiting immigration minister," Mr. Harper said, calling on Mr. Volpe to apologize.

Mr. Harper defended his party's insult of the Liberals, saying said the cover of the Western Standard magazine was a spoof on criminals, not Italians.

"There was nothing about ethnicity in that," Mr. Harper said Wednesday after a caucus meeting. "This was about criminal allegations that are very serious and I think those allegations should be taken very seriously."

Mr. Volpe had said Tuesday that a photo of two Conservative MPs looking approvingly at a magazine cover featuring 'The Liberanos' showed that, "The Klan looks like it's still very much alive.
What the hell has Canadian politics become?

Is this not typical of leftie politicians? If you disagree with them on anything you're naturally Adolf Hitler or a racist of some sorts. And what the hell does the clan have to do with any of this anyways? From what I remember the Klan primarily targetted Africans, not Italians. Maybe I misread something somewhere.

Heck, I guess I shouldn't let such little details get in the way of a good soundbite.

Volpe is an unmitigated disgrace, and the best example I have yet seen of the ridiculous double standard that all Liberals seem to possess whereby they think they have the right to say anything, no matter how outrageous and offensive, about the members and leadership of the Conservative Party, while anyone who criticizes or takes a well-deserved shot at them or their party, even in well-crafted satire, is automatically a "bigot".

Thank god that the media (and hopefully the Canadian public in turn) is waking up to this complete nonesense and hypocrisy, and will not be fooled again by the desperate claims of these pathetic jackasses as they pitifully cling to their final days in power.
