I hadn’t even heard of this guy until this morning, he’s dead, but I still hate him.
Without real familiarity with Canadian politics- let’s be real, who gives a crap?- his accomplishment seems to have been reviving the fortunes of a small Canadian part, the New Democrats.
Third party politics work better in a parliamentary system. A change in leftist political emphasis from urban laborers to a combination of government employees, racial minorities and sexual deviants (not that these are mutually exclusive) occurred in America entirely within the Democratic Party. Layton seems to have sucked these people away from the Liberals and Bloc Québécois with his personal charisma.
A charismatic leftist. Puke. Bobby Kennedy if he had lived. But why is this grifting and chiseling regarded as such a noble endeavor? Because our betters tell us, that’s why. All Layton did was get together government employees and homosexuals to make their demands on normal, productive people.
Man is wolf to man, indeed. The purpose of leftism is to destroy people. It does this through shame, humiliation, intimidation, and the policeman under the command of the judge. To hell- literally- with them all.
