The left lost its collective mind on Twitter, in particular three prominent men of the left with ties to the Prime Minister, riled up not against a Syrian refugee who beat his wife with a hockey stick, but against two women who wrote about it.
So, what’s worse — men beating women or women writing and talking about men beating women?
The answer should be self-evident but for progressive men in Canada today it appears we’re back to the days of men telling women not to talk about beatings in the home.
Watch as I explain the background of how it came to be that Sun columnist and Rebel contributor, Candice Malcolm, and CPC MP Kellie Leitch, were denounced by these progressive men for daring to speak up.
Remember when progressive men would at least pretend to stand up for women and their ability to speak their minds, and when they would denounce violence against women without finding some cheap moral equivalence?
Apparently, that has changed and now these supposed gentlemen are more interested in protecting Justin's refugee program from any criticism, even if it means shaming a pair of women that speak up about a man beating his wife with a hockey stick.
Don’t dare talk about problems with Justin’s program or bring up uncomfortable issues or questions.
Essentially, they're saying these women should shut up and mind their place, but if you know these women, you’ll know that isn’t about to happen any time soon.
