I expect that I would disagree with Sandra Jansen about most things. I see her as an Elitist Progressive of the first order, and I think the manner of her crossing the floor of the Alberta legislature, from a purportedly Conservative party, straight into the embrace of a committed socialist party, says all you need to know about Sandra..
But in this video I agree with her 100%. She is speaking to the Alberta legislature about the verbal abuse she received after crossing the floor. However much I deplore the manner of her crossing, the subsequent abuse she received is outrageous.
The same applies to some of the slurs directed towards Hillary Clinton. Based on evidence, I consider her to be a liar who has engaged in criminal behavior of various kinds; most recently the destruction of evidence pertinent to her email server fiasco. Nevertheless, she is a woman, and crude slurs against her womanhood are unacceptable, and in practical terms, counterproductive.
Some of the creeps using this language undoubtedly consider themselves to be conservatives. They are not. A core value of conservatism is, and always will be, respect for womanhood. In that regard, left-wing icons like John F. Kennedy, and Bill Clinton, are not conservatives, and 10 years ago, apparently, neither was Donald Trump. The next four years will reveal if he’s truly made the transition to conservatism.
Because it’s the left that goes to seminars and shouts down those with whom they disagree. It’s the left that throws temper tantrums over disappointing electoral outcomes. And it’s the left; people like the American comedian/political commentator, Bill Maher, who refer to women using the c word, and get a pass, at least in the liberal/Progressivist media.
If you’re not a member of the left, and you use that kind of language towards women, I don’t know where you are, politically speaking, but you’re not a conservative. What you are, is a disgrace.
Many of you know that I am involved with an organization called Let’s Do It Ourselves where we are in the process of writing our constitution, which includes our Beliefs; Rights; and Responsibilities.
One of our Responsibilities is to engage in careful, courageous, and complete consideration of issues; to form an opinion, and then, enthusiastically defend it. But foul language and irrelevant ad hominems are not acceptable. Any member who uses them will have his or her membership revoked.
If you agree with our position, and, that conservatives need to cooperate, contribute, and communicate, I invite you to JOIN US!
I just received my latest copy of The Economist Magazine, and they have a fascinating article on the substantial benefits!! of increased CO2 in the atmosphere. We’ll examine the article next week.
Happy Thanksgiving to our American readers, and may we all survive Black Friday!
