Yet another Jane Taber tongue bath...

...must be Tuesday...

no personal attacks, huh?Yeah, Janie... Stephen Harper & Jimmy Hoffa... it's like they were separated at birth...

"Mr. Ignatieff wasted no time calling out Mr. Harper for his campaign’s treatment of a young woman who tried to attend a Conservative rally in London but was thrown out by “two big goons” because she has Liberal friends on Facebook."
So, Michael... I'm confused... what happened to the guy who was whingin' & whinin' about those nasty Neocons and their hurtful personal attacks?

Nah... forget about that... it's way more fun just to paint the Conservatives as the latest incarnation of the KKK. You really think Ms. Aslam was asked to leave because she has "Liberal friends?"

Never mind "codewords"... exactly what "Liberal friends" are we talking about here?

yup, no personal attacksOh... right.

Of course, CBC is quick to pick up the "Conservatives are Mindless Goons" meme...
"Izzy Hirji posted on his Facebook page how he and a 'handful' of other students were escorted out of a Tory rally in Guelph."

"Hirji said he was participating in a "vote mob" that greeted the Conservative leader to the southern Ontario city."
A "vote mob?" You might wanna be careful with that word, Izzy... it hasn't been getting such great press lately.

I wonder how Ms. Aslam & Mr Hirji feel about being Michael Ignatieff's latest pawns in his war on Stephen Harper.

The fact is, I'm not privy to why these folks were escorted out of these particular events. But neither, apparently... are Michael Ignatieff or Jane Taber.

Was it an overzealous campaign worker? Was there some concern on the part of the security detail? Did any of the professional journalists or political operatives ask any other questions?

Or is this just another feeble attempt to score cheap political points?

What I do know... is that attempting to turn this into some sort of "Evil Stephen Harper" nonsense is beyond the pale.

And Iggy & company should be ashamed of themselves.


UPDATE: Just doing their part

The Toronto "Red Star" claims Ms. Aslam was "frog-marched" out of the event.
what media biasBoy... I sure hope she's laying assault charges.


"The PM's Goons? They're laughing at the rest of us. They're checking their ever expanding lists of "dissidents", and slavering over what they'll be able to once Steve gets the majority. They're only downcast because they didn't get a chance to taser those bad women."

Another nonsensical, middle of the night bulletin from my biggest fan.

Cue banjo music.


LAST WORD: Hang on... Izzy Hirji...

...that sounds so familiar...
"...stephen harpers plan is ridiculous, 40 years without results, and death to Kyoto!?!?!?! OMGWTF im ready to like go to Ottawa myself an take him down..."

I have a strong suspicion about the muslimah in her hijab.

Was she the woman who asked Ann Coulter about airport screening when Ann was in London, Ont.?

What do you expect the P.M is damned if he does and damned if he does not,every day the media will pile on for whatever little reason.I hope Canadians can see this crap.

"jwkozak91 says... the woman who asked Ann Coulter about airport screening"

i could be wrong, but wasn't that actually uwo student fatima al-dhaher?

it does seem that political agitation & disruption is becoming s.o.p. these days. you bring your cellphone... get up & perform... and then post it on youtube.

i do remember that another of ms. coulter's canadian appearances was cancelled because police said they were unable to guarantee her physical safety.

i imagine the pm's security detail is more than a little edgey these days.

Sorry, I should have used Ms. Aslam's name earlier - and thank you for correcting me.

I think if there's any blame to be had it would be on the Alliance wing of the party - they have institutional remembrance of at least two incidents during the 2000 campaign:

1.) At a Ukrainian restaurant in Brandon, Manitoba, a "group" (p.c.) of aboriginal protesters successfully prevented Stockwell Day from speaking.

2.) At a theatre in Vancouver(?) someone dressed all in black threw chocolate milk at Mr. Day.

I dare Iggy to come to Alberta and let me know about it. Forcing my index finger into the Count's face would be great fun.

Perhaps Ignatieff should take the veil himself.

"james h says... Perhaps Ignatieff should take the veil himself."

it ain't the prime minister spilling tears over poor little omar khadr.

Someone really should organize a "vote mob" for Ignatieff. He did say everyone is welcome. Well hey why not show up with conservative shirts on in a vote mob and put the video of what happens on youtube.

Neo Conservative said...

so nonny... izzy's sort of the next dian fossey?

hopefully, his story will have a happier ending, huh?

Why were they removed. Maybe one was arrested already for disturbing a rally by the PM, including climbing on the roof. Maybe one threatened the PM via Facebook;


Maybe the media could do some basic research, just once.

Neo Conservative said...

first mr. hirji... now it looks like somebody just blew ms. aslam's non-partisan "just a curious student" cover...

"Awish Alam, UWO student from Harper rally fame, confirms she was an NDP volunteer in the last election."

funny... not a word about this in the lamestream media.
