Teneycke On Patriotism And Separatism

The Vampire Teneycke lashes out at Margaret Atwood (over an admittedly silly on-line petition from Avaaz):

This is not the first time Atwood has put her political agenda ahead of principles and patriotism. In the 2008 election campaign she was asked if she would vote for the separatist Bloc Quebecois if she lived in Quebec, she said: “Yes. Absolutely. What is the alternative?”

Seriously?

How about voting for someone who doesn’t advocate the breakup of the country?


This is the same fellow whose papers have once again began publishing Ezra Levant, who in his 1995 column "10 Reasons to Hope for a Yes Victory" cheered for a separatist victory, and who later suggested that Alberta should separate if Quebec didn't.

How about employing people who don't advocate the breakup of the country, KT?

Not to mention a certain someone who called Canada a "third rate socialist country" and who wanted to build a "firewall" around Alberta.

In his own words:

“If Ottawa giveth, then Ottawa can taketh away… This is one more reason why Westerners, but Albertans in particular, need to think hard about their future in this country. After sober reflection, Albertans should decide that it is time to seek a new relationship with Canada. …Canada appears content to become a second-tier socialistic country, boasting ever more loudly about its economy and social services to mask its second-rate status, led by a second-world strongman appropriately suited for the task …Having hit a wall, the next logical step is not to bang our heads against it. It is to take the bricks and begin building another home – a stronger and much more autonomous Alberta. It is time to look at Quebec and to learn. What Albertans should take from this example is to become “maitres chez nous”.

Rusty Idols points out that Kory lied:

So a ignorant American (Sun Media-Suncor?)organization wants to tell me, a Canadian, that my choice ought to be limited as to what news channel I decide to watch.

Kory is right, Rick Mercer would have fun with "Avaaz".

Why are the left so afraid?

Not afraid dude - the left aren't afraid of the truth - Cons don't like the truth or are so stupid they believe lies - that's the difference.

Hmmm, who to believe? Teneycke or Avaaz?

Avaaz: "..."What's really concerning for us is that this fraud occurred last night, right as he must have been writing his op-ed, so he appears to have almost instantaneous knowledge of the fraud being committed -- before we did or anyone else. How is that possible?..."
