I'm going to start off my project of attempting to discover the Grand Unifying Conservative Idea with something so simple, so necessary and so almost-taken-for-granted that the fact that none of the putative leadership contenders have spoken up about it is itself an indictment of how safe they're playing it:
Whoever deigns to call themselves the next leader of the Conservative Party of Canada needs to unequivocally declare that SJW's will never, ever be permitted to use the courts to make it illegal to hurt their feelings, as they tried to do with Gregory Alan Elliott a few weeks ago.
What we have here are a group of Terminators.
In case you've never seen the movies (which is quite a likely scenario for the people running the CPC leadership campaigns), Terminators cannot be bargained with or reasoned with, etc. and so on:
The courts protected freedom of speech in the Gregory Alan Elliott trial.
The SJW's got their hearing, as is their right, and they lost. Under the paradigm in which the public relations fraternity and the current incarnation of the CPC operates, this is all well and good and nothing needs to be done because the system as it is works.
If the SJW's try again, the lawyers and PR fraternity will just throw a bunch of talking points at them and they'll disappear.
But for the SJW's, it is not enough just to get a fair hearing, where perspectives compete with one another and one party wins and another loses.
What they want is to have their disgusting perspectives enshrined as the law of the land, or, better yet, for there to be no law of the land.
And so they will continue to send units that are better at killing and more efficient at doing so, until they complete their mission.
As terrifying as it is, this scenario probably doesn't scare the CPC flacks, because they'll just fall back to some other talking points just like they did after the last election, where they reassured everyone that conservatives still captured some shriveled percentage of the popular vote and that Canadians would come to their senses and vote Justin Trudeau out after four years of the high-tax Liberal agenda.
They know this will keep the donors donating, and as long as the donors donate they have nothing to fear.
So let me give them something to fear:
As soon as Kevin O'Leary or someone else steps into this vacuum, that's where the donations are going to go.
As a result, they had better flipping well move to prevent that scenario from happening.
And if the left is serious about stopping O’Leary, then as much as they hate the idea of a CPC leadership campaign declaring solidarity with #FreedomOfTweets, they’ll understand that it’s better than the alternative.
I won’t hold my breath, though.
It doesn’t have to be detailed. It doesn’t have to involve proposing a law. This is as simple as holding the line on something they already believe to be obvious. Post a Twitter selfie with Gregory Allan Elliott, for crying out loud.
The candidate or candidates making this proclamation will dominate the news cycle for the next couple of days at least. The race as a whole would be invigorated and more donors would donate than at present.
And in general, the conservative base would care a lot more, for good or for ill, than they do now.
