Check out the low brow garbage they are printing in the Sun these days. I guess their unintended goal is to drive down readership with drivel like this.
Here was my comment to the Sun’s Editorial of today entitled “Why we ignore Professor Ignatieff”
Brent Fullard’s comment Who wrote this editorial drivel? Kory what’s his name, former Communications Director for Stephen Harper and now in charge of the Sun newsroom?
BTW: Where's Greg Weston?
Why we ignore Professor Ignatieff
By QMI Agency
September 2, 2010
After a summer shaking hands with the underclass -- (did you take our advice and buy stock in Johnson & Johnson, the makers of Purell?) -- it would appear Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff believes he is still walking the halls of academia.
It seems he can't resist the urge to lecture Canadians of lesser intellect who, to his way of thinking, would consist of everyone in this nation who is not him.
Perhaps it is a genetic affliction.
His grandfather, after all, was Count Paul Ignatieff, the last education minister to serve under Russian Tsar Nicholas II.
Then 1917 came along.
But the elitist Ignatieff seal had been stamped.
So fast forward to earlier this week, dateline Masstown, N.S., and there is Michael Ignatieff -- BA, MA, PhD, BFD -- lecturing us on the most basic rule of our law, the innocent until proven guilty bit, and then urging us not to panic over the recent terror arrests in our nation's capital.
It is this snoot-nosed arrogance Ignatieff will never be able to shake and why, no matter how many hands he pumps, he will never achieve a meeting with the common mind.
He thinks we're all as dumb as posts.
Listen in, for here's Ignatieff's take on the recent terror arrests.
"It's important for Canadians to realize in the Toronto (18) case, the courts acquitted many people," he tell us. "These people (in Ottawa) are innocent until proven guilty and they have rights as Canadians, and those rights need to be respected."
Fair enough, professor. But, just out of curiosity, whose side are you on?
And then, to top it off, Ignatieff goes on to urge Canadians not to panic when, until he channels Chicken Little's ghost, it had never occurred to Canadians there was ever any need to panic.
Face it, the alleged conspirators were in custody, the plot never thickened and, as for the Toronto 18, the convicted ring leaders will be in prison until their wicks burn out.
Our intelligence and police services did their jobs.
As for those among the Toronto 18 who were acquitted, who cares?
Certainly not us.
The system worked, and that's all that matters.
So spare us the lecture.
