So, I visited Montreal Simon to read his latest post, which was a condemnation of the Scheer Conservatives and their fans who are bringing USA-Repugnican style hatred and violent rhetoric up here. It started off well with a picture of some sub-literate right-wing moron holding up this ridiculous (and frightening) hand-made sign:
I've said on numerous occasions that stupid people must have the same right to vote as non-stupid people. But there needs to be gatekeepers to prevent the rise of stupid ideas and rage-fueled political movements from having any prominence greater than the level of three city blocks. Alas, for reasons of selfish cynicism our media and corporate elites see fit to pander to these cretins and stir them up. As well (whose kidding who?) from their own behaviour and the words that flow from their mouths, pens, pencils, keyboards, many among our elites aren't all that intelligent either.
Montreal Simon goes from trashing right-wing assholes calling for Trudeau to be "hung" (or run over by a truck) for taxing them, for verbally acknowledging global warming, for admitting Syrian refugees, for marching in PRIDE parades, and etc., ... where was I? .... Oh yeah, ... Simon goes from condemning those assholes to conflating them with progressives who yell at him for buying the TMX pipeline (so as to bail-out the Bay Street parasites who invested in that bitumen project) and praises Trudeau for asking his supporters (booing the guy) for tolerance as he lets his security drag the man away.
Immediately afterwards Simon mentions a guy who threw an egg at Trudeau during a climate march in Montreal, but it's unclear from the Global News video what that guy's agenda was. Personally, I've never gotten too incensed about ordinary people throwing pies (or, now, eggs) in the faces of politicians.
"What if that pie/egg had been a gun or a bomb or a knife?!?"
Yeah. But you're missing the important point that it wasn't a gun or a bomb or a knife. It was a cream-pie/egg. You could just as well shriek that the hand of someone extended for a handshake could have been a gun. But it wasn't. The person sticking their hand out to a passing politician just wants a handshake. Just as the person with the pie wants to make a statement and not kill anybody.
Simon then starts his spiel about how Justin Trudeau is the most activist politician fighting climate change EVAH!!!! because of his carbon tax and his investments in renewable energy industries. But, if Simon were honest (or not honestly ignorant) he would know that this is mere tinkering and that it is all cancelled-out by his continuing to develop the Tar Sands. Which is par for the course for a liberal politician. They're the masters n' mistresses of using empty words to gull their deluded followers. They "feel your pain." They "want to see all people rise to their full potential." They "don't want to see anyone left behind." They say the things we want to hear in order to get elected and continue to say those things as they enact policies that contradict their flowery words.
The end result of political cowardice and deliberate deceit by politicians like Justin Trudeau is going to be the extinction of most of the earth's life-forms. It will AT LEAST mean the deaths of tens of millions of people. Given this, it was justified for that protester to yell at Trudeau for his sickening devotion to the TMX pipeline. And it is the height of stupidity to conflate environmentalists with legitimate grievances with Islamophobic, racist, right-wing homophobic shit-heads threatening all their adversaries with murder. (Notice how that protester at the Liberal rally stayed right where he was and didn't make a step towards Trudeau.)
And, of course, the first "commentor" was Simon's in-all-but-name co-blogger "Jackie Blue." I haven't (and won't) read her entire densely-packed, extended comment. But she basically says that leftist "shit-disturbers" are as big a threat (to "rational centrists") as right-wingers. Now, given the evidence from Simon's own post, anyone not an idiot can see that isn't true. She then goes on to whine about the progressives who didn't vote for mass-murderess, corrupt scumbag Hillary Clinton. Because "Jackie Blue" continues with the bullshit story that she's a US-American and she continues with the bullshit belief that Hillary Clinton wasn't a murdering scumbag.
Hillary Clinton voted for the Iraq War you stupid fuck! She voted for a war based on obvious stupid lies. The war she voted for has KILLED ONE MILLION IRAQIS and maimed and traumatized millions more. And that's only one of her colossal "mistakes" that she made while servicing the oligarchy and becoming a multi-millionaire herself. And it was Hillary's own sense of entitlement that led her to rig the Democratic primary to defeat Bernie Sanders and thereby bring on the presidency of Donald Trump. Hillary gave us Trump you imbecile!
As a species, we have to do the hard work of overthrowing his rotten, inhuman, ecocidal system. And the longer that (mostly decent-minded) people like Montreal Simon pledge hysterical allegiance to hucksters like Liberals, the longer (and perhaps TOO LATE) will it take to start that job in earnest.
(I'll end by saying that I probably won't be voting. My riding is a contest between the Libs and the Cons. And, from reading this article, I'm pretty much deflated about my choices anyway.)

Not to mention long sought for when it came to Atlantic Coast Conference play.
A conference win was the reward from a 41-39 victory finally settled when BC's fourth-down pass fell incomplete with two seconds remaining. Then came the celebration the Cardinals hadn't felt in 686 days, when they beat Syracuse 56-10 for their last ACC win.
"It was a good experience," Louisville receiver Seth Dawkins said after finishing with eight catches for 170 yards. "A lot of young guys never got to experience that party in the locker room that we just had."
Blanton Creque's 41-yard field goal with 1:02 left edged Louisville past BC to end a nine-game ACC losing streak.
"None of these wins are going to be easy and a lot of them will probably come down to something like this," first-year coach Scott Satterfield said. "You've got to finish games like this, and they were able to do that. All the way to two seconds (left) and we were able to win."
Shortly after Aaron Boumerhi's 45-yard field goal with 3:32 left put the Eagles ahead 39-38, the Cardinals (3-2, 1-1) drove 52 yards in eight plays for Creque's line drive that sailed through the uprights. BC (3-3, 1-2) drove to its 46 before turning the ball over on downs, and Louisville won the shootout for its first conference win since Nov. 18, 2017.
Like the 2017 meeting here that BC won 42-39, yardage and points came in bunches.
The schools combined for 1,227 yards, most of it passing in a contest that matched the ACC's top two rushing attacks. Louisville gained the edge 664-563, helped by those final yards ending with Creque's second field goal.
The teams combined for 16 plays of 20-plus yards, including 10 by Louisville. The Cardinals' last explosive play, Javian Hawkins' 28-yard run to the BC 22, set up Creque's game-winner.
"We needed one stop. One stop," BC coach Steve Addazio said. "We've been a little up and down defensively. We've got to smooth that out."
Louisville used two QBs to get it done. Cardinals freshman Evan Conley completed 10 of 16 passes for 140 yards and a 23-yard TD to Dez Fitzpatrick for 38-29 lead early in the fourth quarter. He alternated at times with Micale Cunningham, who was 13 of 18 passing for 288 yards and 59-yard TD.
Hawkins rushed for a career-high 172 yards and a TD on 25 carries for the Cardinals.
Dennis Grosel passed for three TDs in relief of BC starter Anthony Brown, who left early in the second quarter with a left leg injury. Brown hit 6 of 7 passes for 193 yards with a 72-yard TD to tight end Hunter Long in the first and positioned the Eagles to tie on Grosel's first TD before his injury.
"It hurts, but our mindset was to focus as much as we can" Grosel said. "Defense did what they could, worked their (butts) off."
NAME CHANGE, SORT OF
Before the game a Louisville football spokesman announced Cunningham's preference to called by his given first name, Micale, instead of Malik, his middle name. Frequent mispronunciations of his name by classmates led the sophomore to previously go by Malik because it was easier.
"I just thought about when I talked to a reporter (Friday)," Cunningham said, "and she asked me about it and I was like, you all can pronounce it. I am fine with it. That's my name."
Boston College must move forward without its veteran QB, who watched the rest of the game on crutches. The Eagles appear to be in good hands with Grosel, who hit Korab Idrizi with two TD passes before Travis Levy put them within 38-36 with a 37-yard scoring run. They were still left with their second consecutive ACC loss.
Louisville didn't give Satterfield a signature win by any means. His first ACC win was still notable, and the Cardinals clicked offensively whether Cunningham or Conley were behind center. The defense yielded 259 yards rushing but didn't allow AJ Dillon to gash them like 2017, when he had 272 with four TDs.

Louisville visits Wake Forest on Saturday.
