Oh those stalwart and "progressive" Liberals

I’m not convinced that being a senior Liberal staffer turned Robert Meinzer into an alleged vile predator who has been accused of nine offences relating to an alleged rape and extortion that occurred last summer — including breaking and entering, assault, forcible confinement, sexual assault, choking, assault with a weapon, extortion and anal intercourse. But I’m pretty sure the hypocrisy and sense of entitlement that comes with being a Liberal didn’t help.

I’d like progressive Liberals to step up for electoral reform, but I’d settle for their not viciously attacking women.

What’s thinner than a hair? For that’s exactly what differentiates Liberals from Conservatives these days. I’m not implying that Conservatives are knuckle dragging misogynists (I reserve that for Liberals), I’m simply pointing out there’s precious little that’s “progressive” and whole lot of “con” about the Liberal brand. In fact, in Liberals and Conservatives we’re really dealing with an incestuous brood of ignorant neoliberals that are increasingly indistinguishable from each other.

I still harbour the fantasy that one day the ideological political struggle will be embodied by libertarians on one side and democratic socialists on the other. Liberals and Conservatives are not only incestuous first cousins; they are entirely redundant and unnecessary.

  1. I agree – it's why the corporate support one or the other, when one starts to fall out of favour. Nothing really changes for them and it's the way they like it – elitists with money and power to control the political/economic/and social agenda of the country.
