Liberal lawsuit... ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

Oh, now THIS IS RICH.

The Liberals are taking a Conservative MP to court... for insinuating that the Liberal Party of Canada has an "extreme left-wing"?

Wow... does the word "hypocrisy" come to mind?

How about we launch our own suit for the Liberal's use of following phrases? "Extremist", "Right-wing", "Neo-Conservative", "scary", "mean spirited"? There's ample evidence for a case... and straight from www.liberal.ca, no less...

"Conservative Leader Stephen Harper has declared Canada’s Supreme Court an obstacle to him implementing his neo-conservative views, Prime Minister Paul Martin says."

“The reason Mr. Harper regards the courts with such suspicion is that they stand between him and the most socially conservative agenda that has ever been this close to forming a government,” said the Prime Minister. “Fortunately, the vast majority of Canadians don't share Mr. Harper’s neo-conservative views.”

"This election is about our values. It is about the kind of Canada we believe in; the kind of Canada we want.

On the one hand, we have Conservative Leader Stephen Harper offering a socially conservative agenda with tax cuts for the wealthy and extreme right-wing views on the social values that Canadians hold dear."

Liberal MP Mark Holland took Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservative government to task yesterday over recent meetings with U.S. Republican pollster Frank Luntz at a conference organized by a radical right wing group.

“Since the Prime Minister muzzles his MPs and hides from the press, is the Civitas Society where we need to look to uncover the truth about this government’s real agenda?” Holland asked in the House of Commons Monday.

Mr. Luntz, a republican strategist who helped draft Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America, spoke in Ottawa at the 10th Annual Conference of the Civitas Society, a radical right-wing group closely linked to the Reform/Alliance wing of the Conservative Party of Canada.

Mr. Harper had a private meeting and posed for pictures with Luntz.
(Oh shock! Oh horror! He had a picture taken with him! LOL!)

“The Conservative grassroots community is actively campaigning for the demise of this important agency which promotes the rights of women in Canada,” said Ms. Minna. “Ms. Oda must come clean and reveal whether or not she will bow to the pressure of these extreme right-wing groups or if she will take a stand and publicly distance herself from their position.”

“When the government is posting a multi-million dollar budget suplus, thanks to the previous Liberal government, why has the Prime Minister chose to cut 12 of the 16 status of women offices across Canada, if it is not to cripple those who dare challenge his government’s neo-conservative agenda?,” he asked after receiving a standing ovation in the House of Commons.

“Why does the Harper government continue to insist on these damaging neo-conservative cuts? When will they stop?”

A government briefing book obtained by the Liberal Opposition through Access to Information revealed that the Harper government is continuing to slash programs and services vital to the growth and sustainability of the country.

“The Prime Minister has finally admitted that he's stack the judicial system to suit his right-wing ideology,” said Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion. “On Wednesday, he told Parliament that he wanted to make sure that the selection of judges adheres to his right-wing agenda.

“How can Canadians trust this Prime Minister to respect their rights and values when he admits that he intends to manipulate the judge selection process?”
In a short period of time, I dug up FOURTEEN seperate press releases that used various combinations of those few words... including AT LEAST four uses of the word "extreme" or "radical".

Now, my Liberal friends... care to withdraw your little temper tantrum of a lawsuit?

Here's what we need to do... HIT BACK HARD. Shove this lawsuit right back in their faces, and make sure the entire nation clearly sees their hypocrisy here. Make sure that everyone in this country can see that the Liberal Party of Canada is nothing but a bunch of cry-baby hypocrites.

But make sure we do it in such a way as to be just laughing it off... with a smile for the cameras. Maybe Mr. Harper can say something like, "Well, if we'd launched a lawsuit every time they called me an extremist..." Say that with a twinkle in your eye Mr. Harper, and let the media take care of the rest for you!

    Considering that the Liberals don't have the money to run any ads to counter the CPC's, what kind of lawyer could they get that would work pro bono?

    I watched Question Period three times this week--each time, I heard new slurs against the Conservative party by Liberals (back benchers and higher ups): "Republican Lite" "Neo-Conservatives" and "Bush's friends."

    I hope the Canadian people are paying attention--smear politics don't work and sooner or later you have to come up with the goods. Harper has shown himself a fine leader, poised and reserved--I'm damn proud of him.

    Let them sue. There will undoubtedly be a counter-suit for all of the reasons you've listed.

    I, for one, am tired of hearing neo-Conservative.

    It's misleading to the Canadian public.

    It's the Canadian public who should be suing the Liberal party for fraud and mismanagement of our money.

    I for one am proud of the label "neo-conservative". I think every conservative should take this label on with pride. Use it widely yourselves as a badge of honor. Conservatism is the natural order of man and it should be celebrated as such.

    Sincerly,
    Neo-Con

    surely we should be expecting a lawsuit against Jonathan Kay and the National Post for saying the same?

    and surely the LPC will dig to find Kay's source and sue him, too?

    Nope? Didn't think so.

    There are plenty of scum bag lawyers in the Liberal ranks, I'm sure they won't have a hard time finding one to do the job.

    Poilievre made a mistake insinuating anything outside of the house. The lawsuit doesn't to be won to be damaging. "Look at those dirty slanderous Conservatives, behaving just like they always do in the house. Well, we of the Liberal party, being of higher morals and all that, aren't going to stand for it anymore. Blah, blah blah." Basically, the Liberals will take every opportunity to slander the Conservatives in the house and be nothing but the wounded puppies outside in front of the media.
