Harper’s anal­y­sis thought­ful, hon­est

Calgary Herald - - OPINION -

Re: Same old, same old in Harper book, Let­ter, Oct. 16 Ac­tu­ally “Right Here Right Now” is a thought­ful and hon­est per­spec­tive on the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal land­scape un­less viewed through the lens of so­cial­ists and/or cen­tral Cana­dian Lib­eral elites. At­tempt­ing to grasp the whys and where­fores of the as­sump­tions re­lat­ing to the (sad) fact of the Trump pres­i­dency should be ap­plauded rather than sim­ply dis­missed as the re­sult of a fool and a bigot be­ing elected by fools and big­ots. Although I ex­pect that in some cir­cles it is in­tel­lec­tu­ally com­fort­ing to re­fer to nearly 50 per cent of Amer­i­cans as fools and big­ots.

“Hid­ing the in­tel­lec­tual poverty and self-in­ter­est on dis­play” are very clever phrases that could so much more aptly be ap­plied to our cur­rent PM. Think about that.
