Whoever said Canadians were nicer than Americans?
Former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell, who served for five months in 1993, let loose her inner Freddy Krueger when she daydreamed about the horrific destruction that could very well be visited on Florida during Hurricane Dorian.
“I’m rooting for a direct hit on Mar a Lago!” Campbell, who served as the 19th Canadian prime minister for less than five months in 1993, tweeted on Thursday.
Dorian could become a Category 5 hurricane by the time it makes landfall Monday — with current projections indicating that the Palm Beach property remains in the “cone of uncertainty” about where it strikes.
Campbell faced backlash for her tweet, with many calling it “embarrassing” and “disgusting,” but she doubled down on her wish and told critics to “get a grip.”
Her critics “get a grip”? What kind of subhuman piece of flotsam wishes destruction anywhere? No doubt Campbell enjoyed pulling the wings off of flies as a child.
“As there are in Puerto Rico- sorry you don’t get snark- but Trump’s indifference to suffering is intolerable!” she said to a critic who pointed out “real people” live and work in and around Mar-a-Lago.
“We’d also help if he tackled climate change which is making hurricanes more destructive! Instead, he will remove limits on methane! Get a grip!”
What evidence is there that Trump is “indifferent” to suffering? What evidence is there that any president cares about people’s suffering? Should we take Barack Obama at his word? If so, why not Trump?
Campbell is trying to prove her moral superiority because she “cares” about suffering immediately after proving her immorality by wishing destruction on the people of Florida. Egads.
Someone must have whispered in the old codger’s hearing aid that it probably isn’t seemly for a former prime minister to wish for death and destruction of a political enemy.
A day after, Campbell deleted the tweet and apologized. “I have deleted my tweet about the hurricane & Mar a Lago and sincerely apologize to all it offended. It was intended as sarcasm-not a serious wish of harm. Throwaway lines get a life of their own on Twitter. I shd know better. Mea culpa,” she said.
Ohhhhh, I see. She was joking! My bad.
Claiming “sarcasm” is the last refuge of liberals being caught red-handed showing their true colors to the rest of us. Of course Campbell wanted Mar-a-Lago destroyed. The only people who believe it was “sarcasm” are five-year-olds and other liberals who wished the same thing.
One American critic wasn’t buying it either.
This sort of eliminationist rhetoric is becoming more and more prevalent the farther we get into the Trump presidency. It makes me wonder how bad it will get if Trump wins a second term.
