But when you read that Bob's not going to whip the vote on Wankworth's misogynist merry-go-round (h/t @JeninCanada), the first thing that comes to mind, as the Dawgster points out, is his failure on a similar matter almost 20 years ago.
How shocking, then, that he's found a home in the fetid swamp of the Liberal Party. Who was it said that thing about history, tragedy and farce?
Repurposing my comment at the Dawg's place:
Once again, the Liberal Party of Canada shows its commitment to principle. Is it any coincidence that so many card-carrying LPCers are so active over at the Regressive Rump, and so condescending, dismissive and misogynistic about this?But that pales in comparison to this, over at DJ:
Any party that welcomes the likes of Wappel, McTeague, Szabo, McKay, and the rest of that sludge pile of day-old bacon grease has no business calling itself progressive. Fuck them, fuck Bob Rae, and fuck the horse he rode out on. Time to put the Liberal Party of Canada out of our misery.
Let me spell this out for you, Mr. Rae. Peoples’ rights aren’t subject to majority opinion. And, in spite of your assertion that abortion is a matter of conscience, this most definitely is about rights. It’s about the right to what the Supreme Court in its 1988 ruling striking down Canada’s abortion law called security of the person.Only tweak I'd make to that is that it doesn't deserve the support of any Canadian. Period. I'd say it's time to throw the LPC on the ash heap of history, but it looks like it's taking itself there all by its lonesome.
There is room for exactly one conscience in the matter, that of the individual woman making a decision about her own pregnancy. Until the Liberal Party of Canada understands that, it doesn’t deserve the support of any Canadian woman.
