And here's where we juxtapose ...


Conservative Senator Nancy Ruth would appreciate it if you would just, you know, "shut the fuck up." Or else.

In unrelated news, Conservative Senator Doug Finley is terribly, terribly concerned about the "erosion of freedom of speech" in Canada.

You cannot make this shit up.

ON SECOND THOUGHT, a number of bloggy types are suggesting that we not dump this on Ruth, and that she's actually being helpful and warning folks just how spectacularly mean-spirited and vindictive Stephen "Il Douche" Harper can be. And one certainly can't argue with her there, what with Harper being the textbook definition of an asshole and all.

Nancy Ruth is the same fucking cunt that suggested we feed geese to the poor so that it does not befoul her delicate sensibilities...

This does not surprise me in the least. Now, she is saying out loud what is suspected from the Harpercons.

I really have no patience for her ilk and hope that someone gives her a good ass fucking to just shut the fuck up. She's not a Canadian, she a bigoted old coot that would make the world a better place by shuffling off this mortal coil.

The only good thing about Ruth is that she speaks without much of a filter unlike Doug Finley (and the rest of the HarperCons) who will tell you about freedom of speech while thinking of ways to impose their kind of dictatorship.

Democracy is wasted on these buffoons and twatwaffles...

I'm not so sure CWTF, I think it is possible she was giving what she thought was good advice because she fears that Harper will go a lot further if this becomes more of an issue. She does have as noted in comments at POGGE a history in helping set up back in the 70s LEAF, the Women's Legal and Education Action Fund which did fight a lot of the abortion battles back then for abortion access. If so, then in some ways this comment of hers is even more telling about just how rigid and ideological Harper is on this issue. Bad enough if she was doing the bidding of Harper here, but in some ways it is even worse if she was trying to actually be helpful to limit the amount of damage to abortion access Harper will do if this issue keeps getting raised regarding the international abortion funding access. Either way it is a bad sign and speaks volumes about where this government really wants to go on the abortion issue given any chance to do so.

I'm not saying you are wrong about this CWTF, just that there is some basis to think the alternate explanation may also be true, we really can't know for sure anything except that this shows that the Harper government is inherently anti-abortion and will do whatever it thinks it can get away with the block abortion access wherever they can.

That's fucking disgusting. NO ONE deserves rape. Certainly not for exercising her free speech.

I agree that she can shut the fuck up though.

The good senator nancy ruth will only get my respect if she deserves it - until then she can go fuck a goose or eat it for all I care.

There is not point of being civil with people who have no respect for others.

The question posed by the Unrepentant Old Hippie (http://unrepentantoldhippie.wordpress.com/2010/05/03/what-does-nancy-know/) is an interesting one: What does Nancy know? UOH suggests that the next election is likely to be Harper's last, and that he is prepared to fully play the abortion card for his lunatic fundy supporters in a last desperate attempt to get a majority. If he wins, get ready for Canada to be turned into a craphole theocracy like Iran, Saudi or Utah. No abortions! That'll be the least of it. They'll be stoning gays and burning heretics at the post.

I'm good with go fuck a goose. :)

I think it's a good point that she may have been warning us, not trying to intimidate. However, that smacks of "Don't anger Daddy or he'll lock you in the closet again" which is just creepy and more than a little scary.

Listen to her tone of voice at The Star link - it's a warning, not a threat, and from the woman who started LEAF.

What does she know? She knows that any government intervention on the abortion issue here in Canada - any government intervention at all - will erode womens rights not strengthen them. She knows that agitating for the right to safe abortions for women overseas will threaten abortion rights here in Canada. She knows that Steve will avenge any attempt at embarrassing him on his tinpot G-8 "world stage".

It is creepy and scary, but not because she was honest about it.

I don't agree with her strategically - there are no better days to get locked in the closet - but she is at least addressing the issue. Don't shoot the messenger.

If people can joke about criminals getting raped in jails, it stands to reason that it's not sexist to be complacent about the rape of a female senator I suppose. But it's more crude than I've seen C_WTF speak before.
