"Hitler's birthday"? Does Ottawa Citizen writer Glen McGregor suffer from Harper derangement syndrome?

Brian LilleyArchive

For years radical leftists have compared anyone on the right that they don't like to Adolf Hitler, even though Hitler was leader of Germany's National Socialist party.

That habit has found its way into the pages of Postmedia thanks to Ottawa Citizen writer and apparently purveyor of conspiracy theories, Glen McGregor.

McGregor, well known to be no fan of Harper or the Conservatives, used the occasion of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's birthday last week to dredge up claims that Harper and Hitler share a birthday.


McGregor goes on to point to changed Wikipedia entries, he interviews two authors who had published April 20 as Harper's birthday, rather than April 30 -- both of whom claim it was an error -- and generally offers up no proof of anything.

But he does accomplish his goal, he gets to smear Harper with the Hitler brush.

Media Party indeed.

I am sure Glen McGregor would defend this as his right to free speech in writing his dribble but would never show any Mohamed cartoons because that would be offensive ,makes one wonder who’s side he is on.

That was outrageous. I didn’t say I was outraged but anyone with no sense of humor will be looking for you.
I will remember the scene of McGregor staring at a picture of Stalin hanging over his bed in my mind for a while.
Meanwhile back in Alberta……..A MAJORITY???

I’ve always said both the SCUM and the CREAM rise to the top…Stephen Harper is PURE CREAM…we are fortunate to have such a great statesman in our time…as for Glen McGregor…he too has risen to the top of his profession as the grey foamy waste matter that needs to be lifted off the boiling soup bones to keep the soup clear…and thrown out.

This idiot is weird. Probably goes to bed at night and masturbates thinking of Stalin.

Clicked on the smalldeadanimals link above. Have to share this comment found there:
How soon the MSM forgets it was Trudeau, Pierre that pretended to be a Nazi ….. If it was pretend. Riding around in a German helmet.

Sent an email to McGregor:
You might want to find out the birthday for Boris Komotsky, Editor in Chief of the Communist newspaper “Pravda”. Good chance that his is the same as yours, because the two of you seem to have much in common.
According to your byline you have been “Suffering the wrath of political partisans since 1998”; that’s pretty hilarious.

Now they are making it personal, very LOW! scraping for news is he?

Shares Hitler’s birthday! Harper looks amazing for a man of 126 years of age.
commented 2015-05-05 11:25:26 -0400
Wow – how news worthy. And this is what the communist/socialist/marxist/liberal pigs in Canada do – and this includes the MSM which is complicit in promoting these communist/socialist/marxist/liberal pigs in Canada.

And here is yet another reason to stop reading the National Post – it’s not news – its communist/socialist/marxist/liberal hate spew. FU Goof Macgregor.

The insane left goes to great length to distance themselves from the fascist and nazi regimes . . . McGregor is another uninformed loon . . . many on the left fawned over the 30s regime in Germany, including Justin’s father ! ! !

People like Glen McGregor only show themselves up by declaring such foolishness. Anyone who would agree with him are equally delusional.

Does that mean if your birthday is December 25th you are like Jesus? Nice reach pal.
commented 2015-05-05 10:05:35 -0400
Claiming that Hitler and Nazis were far right politically, is a classic attempt by liberals, to try to disconnect themselves from the truth; that Nazis were / are, socialists from the left wing of the political spectrum just like they are. This fallacy is taught all through secondary school and into university. It is easily proven false with just some minor research though.

I bet even McGregor has a birthday that is the same as some unsavory person in history! But what does this really mean? I believe this guy is an idiot Brian and you can forward my full name to him along with this post. I dare him to try and sue me! I would love nothing more then to get in his face about it!!!!!
