If Trudeau wants to be Ned Flanders, Canadians may not say ‘okily-dokily’

I have never thought of Justin Trudeau as Ned Flanders, because Ned means well. Trudeau? Not so much.

If Trudeau wants to be Ned Flanders, Canadians may not say ‘okily-dokily’

The Liberals talk a lot about about Canadians as neighbours, but boasts about their virtue can remind some of The Simpsons, Susan Delacourt writes
By Susan Delacourt, Star Columnist

Federal Conservatives were outraged this week when Finance Minister Bill Morneau threw an N-word in their direction.

“Neanderthals” was the word in question and it came after Morneau was being accused of failing to walk the government’s talk on gender equality.

“I actually find your line of questioning to be offensive,” Morneau told the Conservatives’ deputy leader, Lisa Raitt. “We will drag along the Neanderthals who don’t agree with that and that will be our continuing approach.”

Within a day, Conservatives were demanding apologies and churning up outrage across social media. Morneau, their favourite target of 2017, was back in their sights as a “mansplainer” to women politicians.

We’ve come a long way from four years ago, when Justin Trudeau was using a much different N-word to describe Conservatives.

It was in February 2014, at the first big Liberal convention after Trudeau took over the leadership of his then third-place party.

“People in Ottawa talk about the ‘Conservative base’ as if it is some angry mob to be feared,” Trudeau told his troops. “They’re wrong. As all of you know, the 5.8 million Canadians who voted Conservative aren’t your enemies. They’re your neighbours.”

No one would accuse the Liberals and Conservatives of neighbourly relations these days, unless we’re talking about fences and feuding families.

But that four-year-old idea of Liberals and Conservatives as neighbours has been on my mind over the past few weeks, as we’ve seen Trudeau’s opinion ratings on a downward slide and Conservatives on an upswing.

If Trudeau is wearing thin on some people, as the pollsters keep telling us, what exactly is the problem? Conservatives are saying that Canadians are simply coming to their senses and recognizing the politician they always said he was — shallow and unready for office. But if it takes five years for Conservative attack ads to work, the party might want to think about switching advertising firms.

It was funny to see some of my social conservative friends get triggered by a word.

It's funny how Liberal men seem to identify as feminists more than most women do.

When you try to be everything to everyone, you end up being nothing to anyone. Not to mention Canadians aren't exactly enamoured with the idea of being rule by a self-appointed emperor with the maturity level of a petulant 13 yr old.

Neanderthal is the new Deplorable. The Lieberals should know better.

Oh wait... no, they are that stupid.

Somebody should start a thread about social conservative's trigger words.

1. Neanderthal
2. Deplorable
3. Feminist
4. Gun control
5. Transgender

That'd be a good start

You only need to look around here for evidence of that.

I'm not sure where Justin Trudeau got his looks. Some have said that his father is Fidel Castro. I wonder if he's been asked to get a DNA test done?

Shame on you for objectifying him! We should respect a man not for his dreamy hair but for the content of his character and his competence. You anti-feminist you!

By the way, he has a nice beach physique.

I got you a technicality here.... Justine is incompetent and has such a thin, flaky character that there is no content.

As such, dreamy hair is all he has and ya gotta find some kind of redeeming quality somewhere

I can speak for all Cdns that we'd feel much better if he spent less time taking shirtless selfies, less time insulting entire nations/cultures and a little more time answering questions in parliament

I just thought of a way to save Canada: appoint Trudeau the next Governor General. The Governor General is supposed to stay out of politics... Er... but then again, the GG is supposed to understand that too... Nah, bad idea. Never mind.

Maybe he can become mayor of Montreal or some such insignificant position.

Make him a deal: Free luxurious retirement somewhere in the Caribbean for the rest of his life with one condition: never run for public office again for as long as he lives. Now that would be money well spent.

How about we alter that deal to include taxable benefits on these arrangements so that tater tot gets a taste of his own tax policy.

Other than that, let's make the deal
