The irony of Brian Lilley.

When one considers Brian Lilley's current lack of anything resembling morals, ethics or principles, it's enlightening to remember why he left Rebel Media back in 2017 -- according to Lilley himself, it's because he had too many principles or ethics to stick around.

If that's hard to believe, well, let me direct you to this August 2017 "As It Happens" piece, where Bri-Bri assures us that Faith Goldy's participation at a weekend white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, VA -- where 32-year-old counter protester Heather Heyer was murdered by one of those white nationalists -- was the final straw for him, speaking of that rally (emphasis tail-waggingly added):

"I have not seen all of the footage, but I've seen enough, and enough of the commentary to say: OK, I can't be a part of that.  We're all responsible for our own personal reputation or our own brand, if you will, and all of us in the public eye sometimes have to practice hygiene."

That would be Brian Lilley, currently using his column at the Toronto Sun to shamelessly pimp for the Ford government, once insisting that reporters are responsible for their "personal reputation", and that "all of us in the public eye sometimes have to practice hygiene."

Quite so, Brian, quite so ... which inspires one to ask, when did you stop giving a shit about your journalistic hygiene?

Remember when Bri-Bri was in a Conservative political ad for Conservative pimping his then family?

He's always been a Conservative propagandist and nothing more.
