Canda's first family of Marxist totalitarian "justice" and hypocrisy

Rex Murphy: On Stephen and Avi Lewis:
One of the more forceful lines of Stephen Lewis’s speech in Edmonton in support of the Leap Manifesto last weekend was his forceful takedown of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the question of the sale of arms to Saudi Arabia. After complimenting Trudeau for his florid embrace of feminism, he gave a quite deft turn of the knife by asking how Trudeau the feminist could justify selling arms to Saudi Arabia, a “regime steeped in misogyny.”

An equally just critique may be made of a certain Leap-authoring social justice activist. So it is fair, I think, to borrow the rhetorical firecracker Stephen Lewis tossed at Trudeau and lob it toward his son, Avi Lewis. Here the question is: can someone with an advanced social conscience work as a “journalist” for the kingdom of Qatar, as Avi did?  ...
... what we had in Edmonton last weekend was two white, old-stock, privileged, celebrity males global-warming-splaining oil-cursed Alberta to its pioneer NDP, female premier.

old white does not have much to say about the sleazy socialists who get rich by telling the terminally stupid that they are looking out for the stupid's best interest, and promising to give them something that someone else has worked for.
