For some reason after reading the latest posts this morning about Harpercon MP and apparent devoted gun nut, Garry Breutkreuz has offered a rather feeble apology and one of the least original kid’s excuses for his threats to wish Iggy bodily harm. Yanno, the typical “Dog made me do it” kinda thing made me think of that Waylon Jennings theme to the “Dukes of Hazzard”.
Apparently, Brother Steve’s lapdog has finally resurfaced to half-heartedly denounce the gun nut’s act, “in poor taste and inappropriate.”
“Mr. Breitkreuz has apologized. What Mr. Breitkreuz should have said is that Michael Ignatieff once again turned his back on rural Canadians by clearly stating he still supports the wasteful and ineffective long-gun registry,” Soudas said.
In other words, what do you want for the poor guy? He’s reacting the way anyone would for attempting to make him register his gun…
Soudas’ half fast justification should remind us all of how sexist the Harpercon government is. Remember what’s happening with Helena Guergis nowadays for being guilty of bad judgement; events that more than likely don’t leave her’s and Jaffer’s social and business circles. Remember what happened to most of the Harpercon women, guilty of far less serious sins than threatening bodily harm to anyone, like Rona Ambrose, Diane Ablonczy and Lisa Raitt to name but a few.
Not only did this wingnut threaten bodily harm on someone, he is starting a dangerous American trend of the tea-bagger hit parade. What is disturbing is that it doesn’t seem to be disturbing Brother Steve all that much. No, I seriously doubt he will kick him out of caucus. Why would he? He’s one of Brother Steve’s typical good ol’ boys from out west and he will no doubt be having his flunkies like Soudas telling the world this good ol’ boy never meant any harm.
