Seriously. I'd really like to hear from you, because for the life of me I cannot understand why you would want such a buffoon speaking for you in Ottawa.
If you follow politics, Mr. Del Mastro is pretty famous for stupid comments, but today? Well today he outdid himself.
He was a panelist on Power Play. The topic? The ridiculous banning of George Galloway. Not only did Del Mastro convolute the reason for keeping Mr. Galloway out of the country, he had to get his digs in on one of the other panelists, Martha Hall Findlay.
You know and I know the real reason that Galloway is being kept out is because he doesn't subscribe to the Conservatives black and white view of the world. Del Mastro said as much when he implied that Martha was turning against her Jewish constituents, being anti-Semitic in other words, in defending Galloway's right to come into the country. Yes, you read that right.
I hope everyone is very clear now on why the Conservative government is keeping this man out. I also hope it's clear just how low this government will stoop to play to it's base.
Additionally CTV, who posts clips of the show, seems to have omitted this particular segment, at least as of this writing. This isn't the first time I've looked for clips that are less than flattering to the Conservatives and have found them missing. Quelle surprise!
CTV, your cowardice is only second to that of the Conservatives.
That said, good on Graham Richardson who actually called Del Mastro on his comments.
