Now We Know - Indeed
If you really want to help defend Saudi Arabia from ISIS cut up their credit cards. They don't need Canadian Death Wagons for that job. It's not as though they need light tanks to serve as armoured bank cars. Nobody, Saudis included, totes around that kind of money in cash.
A popular Liberal Party apologist suggests that the Trudeau government's decision to finalize the paperwork necessary to conclude the contract to deliver Canadian-made armoured fighting vehicles to Saudi Arabia is essential to help our Saudi allies fend off the evil designs of ISIS.
Nice, if it was remotely true. It's not. ISIS isn't Shiite Muslim. It's Sunni, an extremist fundamentalist variation of the Salafist/Wahhabist Sunni Islam cultivated by the Saudis themselves. It would be akin to infanticide for the Saudis to use their Canadian-made armoured fighting vehicles against their own hellspawn.
The Saudis do use vehicles like these for security, however. They do use them to suppress Shiite minority groups. They do use them to crush pro-democracy movements not just within Saudi Arabia but in the other Gulf States. There is, however, no record of Saudi Arabia deploying light armoured fighting vehicles in battle against ISIS.
What perplexes me most about this Liberal apologist's concerns for the security of Saudi Arabia arises out of his sexual orientation. He's gay and proudly so. That's terrific - in Canada. In Saudi Arabia, as in most of the Gulf States, homosexuality is punishable by stoning. Gays get their heads pulped by rocks. Gays get stoned. Sorcerers are beheaded. Six of one, half dozen....
You do the math.

Your lying fucking sack of shit.
Let's start out with this steaming pile:
"A popular Liberal Party apologist suggests that the Trudeau government's decision to finalize the paperwork necessary to conclude the contract to deliver Canadian-made armoured fighting vehicles to Saudi Arabia is essential to help our Saudi allies fend off the evil designs of ISIS."
The only reference to ISIS in Simon's post comes from the excuses the Conservatives give for why the brokered this deal. The whole point of his post is that the Liberals did have to do along with it; otherwise there would have been a multi-billion dollar penalty.
And there's this cow patty:
"What perplexes me most about this Liberal apologist's concerns for the security of Saudi Arabia arises out of his sexual orientation."
Simon has made it abundantly clear that he opposes this deal, and that he does not support the Saudi government; the point of his post is that he blames the Conservatives for the deal.
I realize that you have a hatred on for the Liberals. The fact that they are only half as bad as the Conservatives makes them so much worse, in your addled old man's mind. Whatever.
Here's the thing, though, about your puerile little spat with Simon: when Simon accused you of something, and you denied it, Simon came back with a screenshot. When you accuse Simon of stuff, everybody can see that you're pulling shit out of your ass.
Simon has very good reasons for being glad that the Conservatives are gone. Personally, I have different reasons for being glad the Conservatives are gone. So while I do wish they were as progressive as they present themselves, and I do wish the would keep more of their own promises, I would still vote Liberal again, without hesitation, if that's what it took to keep the Conservatives out of power.
The Liberals have been following the rule of "Run to the Left, Rule to the Right" since before I was born, and probably before you were born. And yes - that does include the elder Trudeau. And Pearson.
The fact that you somehow seem surprised that the Liberals are doing what the Liberals have always done says a lot about where your head is; which further explains the oxygen deprivation that you seem to be suffering from.
The thing you need to be pulling out of your ass is your head, not the stuff you've been flinging at Simon.
Grow up, Mound. Seriously.
Mound, the link you provided proves beyond any reasonable doubt that the blogger in question is an extreme partisan hack. In fact it is one of countless posts you could have found in which he demonstrates himself spectactularly unwilling to acknowledge that the current PM is capable of doing any wrong.
And there are plenty of others wherein he wallows in ugly, regressive identity politics.
He's basically a bottomless well of hysterical wrong-headedness.
Which makes your decision to divine an ISIS angle in there a real head-scratcher. You had such a clear, easy shot, but aimed for your foot instead. What was that all about?
Oh and @Mark, WTF is up with the ageism?
