Ignatieff compares PM Harper to Satan?

In parroting leftist dictator Hugo Chavez, rookie Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff has made perhaps his biggest political blunder EVER, when he on Saturday pulled a "Hugo Chavez" and made allusions to Mr. Harper being the Devil incarnate.

Ignatieff's quote from the Toronto Sun:
The Liberal leader said his party is the only one that owns the centre of Canada’s political spectrum, noting Canadians can “smell the whiff of sulfur coming off” of Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper
Why on earth is Iffy taking a page out of Hugo Chavez little red book?

If you recall, Chavez made the same comparision to George W. Bush, stating "I can still smell the sulfur up here", in reference to the fact that Chaves made his speech to the UN from the same spot, shortly after Bush did.

Canadian politics, of course, is a rough and tumble game. But I don't recall a Leader of any policital party publicly stating that the Prime Minister is the embodiment of evil itself. Wrongheaded, stupid, narrow-minded, mean-spirited, these are all terms that have been used of Leaders in the past, and are of course subject to opinion and debate. But calling someone "the Devil"? That's unheard of in Canadian politics. Some might say it's a more Republican style of attack... maybe Iggy picked it up from his buddies south of the border?

Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff owes our Right Hon. Prime Minister a public apology, for his despicable, baseless, and out-of-bounds personal attack on Mr. Harper.

    This is only 'news' if the MSM says it is and so far they say it isn't.

    I Googled "Iggy Harper Sulphur devil" and got a few Conservative blogs like BLY but that was it.

    Come on Sun TV!!

    The devil himself? That's giving Harper too much credit. I'm sure he was just comparing him to a minor demon. ;)

    the Calgary Sun quotes Iffy as saying 'the guy',
    not the more respectable terms, Conservative PM Harper

    “You know you smell the whiff of sulfur coming off the guy (Harper) — we know how right wing these guys really are.” ...

    If a conservative had said that about liberal Holland would be yelling for a resignation.

    Liberals don't apologize to anyone except to the Taliban and other radical groups.
    Ignatieff thinks canadians are disgusting; he just returned from China after plastering our country over there.
    The liberals 'ONLY' saving grace is the msm. which they(msm) are just as bad as the liberals.

    CC, I can't hardly wait for the 'new' media to take root. The present national media have rotted away.
    An Apology to PMSH? never happen.
    In fact, the liberals, ndp and the bloc all remind of Hugo Chavez.

    On the subject of googling:

    I chuckle whenever I start to type Ignatieff into Google and it suggests: Ignatieff the burden

    Iggy is just playing to his far left socialist voters and hoping to pick up some NDP voters too. For him to say that in Alberta, a Conservative strong hold, shows you how out of touch Iggy really is with any Canadian. Guess bashing Albertans and preferring Quebec cowboy boots plays well down east.

    The Toronto Sun had this to say.

    "Ignatieff kicked off his summer tour in Calgary by touting the Liberal’s “positive message” and then compared Prime Minister Stephen Harper to the devil, "You know you smell the whiff of sulfur coming off the guy.” In literature, the whiff of sulfur is often used to describe the devil and someone as well read as Ignatieff should know to choose his words more carefully.

    Then again, perhaps Ignatieff was just channeling Venezuela’s far-left president Hugo Chavez who used similar words to describe George W. Bush during a United Nations speech; I’ll have to ask the Liberal leader."

    If this is how Iffy presents himself to ordinary Canadians on this "wing and prayer" tour, I say bring it on. It shows him for what he really is. Canadians will not be fooled by this hypocritical, snide and crass snake in the grass.

    This is rich coming from a man who's family heritage was rewarded with territory in Ukraine for applying force on occupied Ukraine during the Russian empire. His family was connected with the Tsarist secret police, which was a forerunner of Cheka, the NKVD, and the KGB. Such a proud lineage.

    Give me a break, he is closer to the sulfur springs than Harper LoL

    "But calling someone "the Devil"? That's unheard of in Canadian politics."

    I think you may be right. As far as I know the Conservatives stick to non-supernatural metaphors. Such as calling Jack Layton "Taliban Jack".

    I know that term sounds familiar to you...
