Kinsella adds pathetic calumny and fear mongering to Liberal strategy, but hasn’t entirely dispensed with sexism

Truly I’d rather not be commenting on Warren Kinsella’s blunders, but he just keeps serving them up. Does someone pay him for these pitiful attacks and this fear mongering????

First, Warren, calling someone a “spokesMAN” is so 1980’s. The non-sexist and 21st century expression is “spokesperson”. To call Elliott Anderson a “spokesman”, especially given your recent sexist cock ups, implies that you continue to believe that speaking and power is the purview of men exclusively. But we all know you don’t really believe that.

But let’s say we get past all that. What fresh hell is this calumny of yours? I’ve met Elliott and he’s one of the hardest working, most dignified and scrupulous researchers in politics. I’ve never heard even a hint of an unkind word about Elliott. Moreover, if I’m not mistaken, he is Jewish. From where do you muster the audacity to smear him like this? Accusing Elliott of anti-Jewish blood libel???? I understand that you leave no room for critiquing the actions of Israel, but blood libel is a charge of anti-Semitism.

Blood libel and anti-Semitism are primed and loaded linguistic nukes. There is a history and significance in those terms such that their deployment should never be undertaken lightly nor undeservedly. To smear Elliot and the NDP even with the scent of anti-semitism is perverse and completely unfounded. You would consider it beneath you if you had an ounce of dignity. Is helping the Ontario Liberals in the polls at the expense of the someone else worth utterly stripping yourself of honesty and integrity? I guess to a Liberal there is no bottom to the depraved pit of politics.

Personally, this is worse even than your attack on Cheri DiNovo. But just as absurd. I truly hoped that after losing Parkdale High Park, the Ontario Liberals would not revert to American style campaigning, yet just days after Rove resigns, we see Rove like antics.

You seriously underestimate, again, the intelligence and the will of the Ontario electorate.

  1. Does this mean that Kinsella thinks that the criticisms of Jocelyn Coulon — Dion’s handpicked Liberal candidate in Outremont — of Israeli foreign and domestic policy amount to “Blood libel and anti-Semitism”?Good question.

  2. Are you kidding? Kinsella specializes in politicizing racism.Blood libel was an unfamiliar term to me. Now, I think Kinsella may really be going nuts.

  3. Yes I've worked with Elliot in the past.He is dedicated to justice and equity – It comes through so clearly in everything he does.
