Um. We’ve seen this level of hate in a campaign before. But NOW it counts? “We will not let them win.”Trudeau, after being pelted with gravel, is inspired by front-line workers facing harassment on the job. But @theJagmeetSingh is troubled? What a difference. pic.twitter.com/cT2vuLSMJL— GreyWolf (@Elam1) May 12, 2022
Why didn’t he speak when the PM was hit by gravel being thrown at him? Why hasn’t he spoken up about all the hundreds/ thousands of F—Trudeau signs and flags all across Canada, in increasingly public places, like outside schools, shopping malls, etc? https://t.co/r9U2A0tF69— babs butterfly (@babsbutterfly2) May 12, 2022
And when there was an attempted assassination of the PM , the media called the assassin friendly.— 🇨🇦 Mike 🍁 ✍ 🍁 (@mengival) May 12, 2022
Yes, and remember that "friendly sausage-maker":
Isn't that what the convoy wanted also? While waving "F*** Trudeau" flags and bearing this logo on flags and sweaters? pic.twitter.com/ujuUt2ctwD— Sal, RN (@salthenurse08) May 12, 2022

2. Hell of a guy.
3. Shocked or something
And so on and in this manner... https://t.co/5zTfs6Tiis
The reason Singh is now the target of screaming irrational Conservative anger is because of his Supply and Confidence agreement with Trudeau, so there won't be another federal election for three years.

But as they exist in growing numbers across the country, singling out one city may misrepresent the danger that we’re facing.
PMJT has faced years of harassment & seriously-close assassination attempts.
These are the people who think that Pierre Poilievre has all the answers. But maybe there is one helpful trend arising out of this Conservative leadership race now:
Snapshot of PP voters. 100% country moving in wrong direction Massive rejection of masks , mandates and boosters, climate change grossly exaggerated, loved the convoy , hate government and immigration. Disinformed , not well educated and deeply economically pessimistic . Yeehaw!— Frank Graves (@VoiceOfFranky) May 13, 2022
For all his flaws, I like Steve Schmidt:

Our media is mostly stepping up now and calling out the bullshit. If you wondered what they’d do when the chips were down, this is it.
Hey, isn't this the truth?
This needs to be the assertion in Canada too, against RWNJ domestic terrorists. https://t.co/TeoDN8VnzA— Danika Dragomir (@NikaDragomira) May 12, 2022
...Sitting on crucial information about whether the president himself is a menace to the security of the United States—hello, John Bolton—is bad enough.But there is an assumption that undergirds this reticence that is shared by both former officials and the public, one that is inimical to our democracy: The officials who have not spoken up (even without a book deal) have been silent because they somehow seem to believe that things will just work out....They might say they think Trump is unfit, unstable, a danger. But in the end, they have faith in the system. They see Trump as only one man, and the system as a bulwark of laws and regulations, people and committees, institutions and practices that will somehow kick in and prevent a catastrophe.... when you know that the president is unhinged, when you know the country is in danger, when you know that plots are being hatched to subvert the Constitution, you have a duty to speak.This duty supersedes confidentiality, partisanship, or personal loyalty. It sure as hell is more important than making bank.
I don't have much on Ukraine tonight, except these:

"Instead, they are trying to hide the truth behind missile, air and artillery strikes," Ukrainian President Zelensky said in his nightly address.
