Right on schedule, Blogging Tory co-founder Stephen Taylor rips off the fax from Stephen Harper HQ and sets to work disseminating the necessary talking points:
Bill Ayers denied entry into Canada. So why the shock?
Today, American radical William Ayers ...
Wanker rule number one: Drop the word "radical" into the conversation as quickly as possible. Check. And the dumbfuck wankery continues:
According to the Canadian Immigration and Citizenship website, a decision to keep Ayers out of Canada would not have been made arbitrarily,
“Some people are inadmissible—they are not allowed to come to Canada. Several things can make you inadmissible, including involvement in criminal activity, in human rights violations or in organized crime. You can also be inadmissible for security, health or financial reasons.”
Actually, this is a good point by Taylor since Ayers was convicted of ... wait, he actually wasn't convicted of anything! HA HA! I'll bet Taylor feels like a total twatwaffle now! But here's the best part in the above:
Several things can make you inadmissible, including involvement in criminal activity, in human rights violations ...
Human rights violations? Would that include starting an unnecessary war? Detaining alleged terrorists with no evidence and without recourse to legal assistance? Condoning torture? Violating the Geneva Conventions? And a whole lot of other things for which George Dubya and Darth Cheney should be standing in the dock for right this minute? So does that mean Stephen Taylor agrees that neither Bush nor Cheney should ever be allowed to set foot on Canadian soil again?
And "criminal activity," Stephen? Should we start a list of the members of the Republican Party who've been convicted of something or other? And can we get you to agree that those folks represent at least as much of a danger to Canadian security as William Ayers? Personally, I'm thinking that Ann Coulter -- who once publicly called for the poisoning of a Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court -- shouldn't be allowed into the country, but I figure you don't see a problem with that, Steve.
So how about it, Stephen? If you want to be that pedantic, would you like to start making a list? I'm betting more of your heroes would be in trouble than mine. But that's just a guess.
Actually, it's not a guess. I'm fairly sure about that.
