Steyn on Tucker

Post by Four Horses »

Last night I watched Mark Steyn on Carlson Tucker (Fox)

Steyn seems to have become that Fox version of Piers Morgan style British blowhard - heavy on the accent, light on substance, and no shortage of self importance.

The talk moved around Free Speech and associated criteria. Steyn related that Canada had a free-speech quash issue some years ago that he was involved with and asserted that he was responsible for having that law removed in Canada.

I recall - like real clearly, that it was a woman named Connie who led the charge over multi-years; a bunch of rag-tag ner'do wells of vikings, cowboys, christians, jews, conservatives, artists, weathermen, graphics, oilers, riggers, farmers, bloggers, liberals, dippers, libertarians, rebels, sailors, veterans, backhoes, backwoods, slickers, pundits, writers, commentators and other such scurvy-infested malcontents on keyboards; who who supported the unsupportable veteran Mark Lemire in his decades long quest to clear his name and fight mostly alone to expose the oppression of those who cannot be named; and then those malcontents pestered, coerced, threatened, muscled, berated, exposed, and confronted the status-quo Con Party apparatchiks in their cushy ridings across this vast country to grow something masculine that comes in pairs; and then placed their trust in a little lady with more gumption that Canada's whole parliament; to stand in the lobby of the Winnipeg CPC Convention with FD handouts to delegates; alone to stare them down and turn them around; who in turn were then compelled to corner the dismissive Steven Harper to relent, retreat, and generally cower and allow the party to rid Canada of S13 / S54.


Steyn got his pieces of silver to appear on stage a few times, write some snazzy columns, have some photo ops; then scooted across the border into the safe arms of the US Constitution.

F**k Mark Steyn
And the horse he rode in on

Really!

This is not the country in which to steal valor.
We already have politicians occupying those positions.

It can happen to almost anybody, a drift from leadership and relevance to self-absorption and isolation. For Wellington Boote-Daley, it happened almost overnight.

I would say this about Mark Steyn, he was solid for our cause back around 2013, but as you say, Fourniers did the hard work and this is never as widely acknowledged as it should be. Nothing against Mark Steyn at all, I haven't been following him much in recent years. At least he did play a part at one point in time, whatever might be the case today.
