Hello? Blogging Tories? *Tap*. *Tap*. Is this thing on?


Still waiting for a single one of those "Stand up for Canadians, We do so like brown people!" Blogging Tories to weigh in on the Suaad Hagi Mohamud fiasco. Y'all let me know when that happens, right?

That's entertainment?

Boca,
Redirect your righteous indignation at those that are ignoring this issue, not at those that have been bringing it to the forefront.

Jumping to conclusions about some alleged racist motives of the Conservative government and then labelling the woman's ordeal as entertaining is at best self serving idiocy, at worst clueless hypocracy.

Balbulican said...

Why is it Conservatives have SUCH a terrible time spelling the word "hypocrisy"?

C'mon, Boca. Your team has mastered the art - now master the spelling.

You really work at playing dumb, don't you Sarah?
Nobody is labeling Ms. Mohamud's ordeal as entertaining, what is entertaining is the ongoing stupidity and stonewalling of the government on this issue. Kind of like your own ongoing pretending not to understand.

The conclusion jumping is left to the reader, but is based on the bahaviour of Canada's New Government. They could easily be not racist, but they are pandering to the racists who support them, since they need every vote they can get. Or do you have some other explanation? Perhaps all the CPC people on this issue are stupid, or they are too busy trying to figure out how they can hang on to power, or they are trying to figure out how to blame the Liberals, or all of the above? Take your pick.

Ding, ding, ding. We have a winner. DODO! She seems a mite suspicious, but still. . .

Sparky said...

Well now you're in it--see, no one here besides you has even alluded to the "woman's ordeal as entertaining".
No, the entertainment value, if one can attach such a scale to this, is derived from how far the bt's go to ignore this very issue when it's been brought continuously to their attention.
So here's english lesson 101 for those that like jumping down to 'Patrick level' mentality--When cc uses the word 'fiasco'here, it's not directed at Suaad Hagi Mohamud, it's directed a those that put her in her current situation and/or ignore the situation she's in.
Get it? Her plight is abhorable. What she's dealing with is reprehensible. And, as the facts are coming out, it's our Canadain representatives that put her in this situation--the "Stand up for Canadians" banner that the bt's rallied around during the election and "Boy, will things be better when the CPoC are in charge and get those dastardly libs outta there..."
Yeah, how's that working so far for our brothers and sisters languishing in far away countries being ignored...
It gets so sad that being snarky towards the obtuse and addleminded (both in the gov't and the bt's) is the only 'polite' way to convey our sheer contempt.
Try getting any bt to rail against Suaad Hagi Mohamud's plight and you may have some footing to stand on. Until then, again direct your righteous indignation where it properly belongs. And again for the obtuse--here isn't it.

Sparky said...

wow--everyone else responded as well and said it much better
So what they said.

bocanut said...

The people here have all agreed to the race card being played by the Conservatives in this woman's case.
The people here have found it "entertaining" to review allegations and assign the collective blame to the racist Conservatives.
Carry on with your delusional circle jerk.

Sparky said...

Boca,
you stated clearly that people here were "labelling the woman's ordeal as entertaining"
This is provably a lie and you were called on it
Now you are in a huff because you were called on it?
Drama queen much?

liberal supporter said...

Sarah lie #1. The "race card" means crying racism. You could make that claim about this post, but the CPC is simply being racist, or at least looking that way.

The people here have found it "entertaining" to review allegations and assign the collective blame to the racist Conservatives.
Sarah lie #2. The "entertainment" is watching the racist CPC and their current spokesperson (you) try to spin this away. Since it is now likely Ms. Mohamud will eventually get home, it is certainly entertaining watching them and you spin spin and spin.

Carry on with your delusional circle jerk.
Thanks Sarah. Does that mean you're leaving because you've lost again, quitbull?

Hahahahahahaha!

"Just for the entertainment value, let's do a quick recap (emphasis thigh-suckingly added):"

Clearly your idiot-in-chief finds this woman's ordeal entertaining.

What's sick is that he would use this woman's colour as an excuse to accuse the Consevative government of racism.

Doctor Cynic said...

If only we can harness Conservative Party spin as a source of energy, the problems of energy scarcity and climate change will be solved overnight!

Clearly you are feigning obtuseness, and not very well, Sarah.

No, the racism itself is sick. The pattern is becoming pretty well established with this government's behaviour. Your endless shilling is entertaining though.

I thought you said to "Carry on with your delusional circle jerk." If it is so sick, why do you stay, Sarah?

KEvron said...

nice angle, doc, but, embittered nihilists that they are, they stop spinning out of spite.

KEvron

KEvron said...

would you guys quit trying to crack that nut already?! he's getting a lot more fun out of it than you are.

just agree with him.

I guess she likes to be in the middle of a circle jerk.

CC said...

Dear bocanut:

You're right -- I think this woman's situation is hysterically funny, and I hate brown people.

Happy now? Is that what it takes to make you go away?

Lindsay Stewart said...

boca you don't dissemble well enough to carry off the charade of misrepresentation you are attempting. there is nothing entertaining about the plight of a woman stranded by the corrupt bigots you worship. in point of fact, the entertainment comes from you, directly from you and yours as you scramble to give all your pigs yet another make-over. granted, it is a low form of entertainment but in this climate you take what you can get.

follow along if you can, you persistently simple goober. we are among those advocating for the rights of a canadian citizen against the machinations of the canadian government. we have noted the distinct silence from the stuffed shirt side of the aisle. we called the self righteous prats on their willing ignorance and we mock you for the false patriotism you pretend to. that's the comedy, you and the blustering wind bags are the joke.

but what your team does and what your team advocates, that's not funny. that's crooked, anti-canadian and an ugly debasement of our nation. this is not the first such incident, it is part of a pattern that points to a separate standard for canadians of differing ethnic origins and faith. that, my dear sausage, is bigotry and racism. we don't laugh at that, no matter how big a joke the persons purveying that dirty product might be.

now go hoop yourself.

Sparky said...

Boca--
Here's a relevant point in the news article that cc and others have made--
"On May 21, after a Kenyan airport official suggested Mohamud's lips and eyeglasses were different from her four-year-old passport photo, the hapless traveller laid out all her ID at the Canadian High Commission.

She displayed her Ontario driver's licence, OHIP card, social insurance card and Canadian citizenship certificate.

She showed her credit card, two bank cards, Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum card, Humber River Regional Hospital Card and a recent dry cleaning receipt from One Hour Brighten Cleaners on Lawrence Ave. W., near her Toronto address.

She produced a letter from her Toronto employer, ATS courier service, about a recent promotion.

The high commission rejected them all. Worse, instead of helping Mohamud, they sent her voided passport to Kenyan immigration authorities to help them prosecute her."

The Canadian High commission ignored her evidence and then did what? Oh right, they aided the Kenyan authorities in prosecuting her...
And what do you think may have possibly happened if all the actors in this situation remained the same except for her--put a white, middle aged man in her role and tell me that this series of events would have unfolded exactly the same.
Go on, tell me that he'd be fighting to get back into Canada right now. Go on, tell me that the bt's would have conveneintly ignored a fellow Canadian languishing in some foreign contry and by god!! why isn't cc, et al, posting anything about it??? Have they no compassion? No shame???
Go on, tell me that Harper or some other CPoC member wouldn't be in front of all the media outlets yammering about the injustice of those dastardly foreign countries and "we'll get our fellow Canadian back no matter what it takes!!!"
Jackass (that'd be you, boca). You're reaching Patrick-level jackssedness

bocanut said...

What an entertaining recap of the "facts".
Carry on.

Ti-Guy said...

I want to put my nut in someone's boca. Teabagging is all the rage these days, after all.

Backseat: You got kicked out of the BT's? When did that happen? And why?

liberal supporter said...

Oh Sarah, you do the air quotes so gracefully. Do one again! And make the sneer more pronounced if you could. Thanks.

Dr.Dawg said...

I'm curious which facts this slobbering troll thinks he can refute. Bring it on!

Now that would be entertaining.

bocanut said...

Dr Dawg:
I'll try and make it easier for you one more time:

"Just for the entertainment value, let's do a quick recap "

A fine example of the seriousness of this blog,where a woman's ordeal and colour is used by disgruntled clowns to score a cheap partisan political point.
Carry on patting your hypocritical selves on the back

liberal supporter said...

bocanut loses the thread!

Jon Pertwee said...

Jeez Bocanut, that's an argument of Dodo strength
