Liberals Humiliate Us From The Grave

The CBC Keeping Anti-Americanism Alive One Broadcast At A Time.

A Liberal senator (what other kind is there?) has replied to a family in Minnesota upset about Canada's seal hunt with a letter denouncing the United States for executing prisoners at home and killing people in Iraq.

Senator (for life) Celine Hervieux-Payette says Americans are in no position to criticize the Canadian seal hunt.

The McLellan family had written to Canadian senators to say they cancelled a vacation in Canada because of the hunt, which they called "horrible" and "inhumane," Montreal's La Presse reports.

In her response, Senator Céline Hervieux-Payette said that what she finds horrible is "the daily massacre of innocent people in Iraq, the execution of prisoners – mainly blacks – in American prisons, the massive sale of handguns to Americans, the destabilization of the entire world by the American government's aggressive foreign policy, etc."

(She forgot to mention Kyoto!)

She said Americans are not in a position to criticize others. "They must start to look at their own behaviour, the permanent heightening of the planet's insecurity since the election of Bush," she told La Presse.

"All senators received the letter from the McLellans and I was the only one to respond," she said. (and you know the family is pretty thrilled about that. )

The family "did not choose a good cause," she added.

(The families made the same mistake most foreign people do when they see the word 'Senator' in Canada they all assume the person has power derived by electoral mandate from the masses - not a label referring to members of the Liberal Party Retirement Party. The family was show-boating, they just didn't realize they are up against pros with a TV network.)

In their letter, the McLellans said they love Canada and have Canadian ancestors but cancelled a trip to Canada last year because of the seal hunt and will scrap plans for one this year if the spring hunt goes ahead, La Presse said.

Hervieux-Payette, a lawyer and former Liberal MP, was appointed to the Senate in 1995 by then prime minister Jean Chrétien (Boo, hiss). She last drew public attention with a private member's bill in 2004 to outlaw spanking of children.

(However spankings are still used on cry-baby, shop-lifting members of parliament.)

In defending the seal hunt, she called it a centuries-old practice and part of the livelihood of coastal residents both native and white.

(So is prostitution; where's the equivalency?)

She invited the McLellans to come to Canada to see a humane society that lives in safety and respects the traditions of its native people. (by frequenting their Casinos regularly)

It is not clear whether she might pay a penalty for remarks that could be seen as anti-American. Once appointed, senators have a job until retirement at 75.

We're going to need more wooden stakes.
