Tea Party Tim’s party are still calling people “foreigners”

I know that a lot of reports are suggesting that Fratboy Tim has dropped the anti-“foreigner” garbage because he’s slipping in various polls. It seemed that way to me, too.

But the fact is he he hasn’t, as this and this and this make clear. He and his team of xenophobes are now just trying to do it in a way that you won’t notice.

Either way, all of us know what it for what it is. Like Dan Gardner wrote, this afternoon, ‎”[Hudak] drags up hatreds and waves them for all to see, hoping that ugly emotions will serve his political purposes.”

So, if I was updating this for a new edition, I’d be including a few passages about the shameful politics practiced by Tim Hudak and his party in the Fall of 2011.

    As a conservative, even I have to admit that I’m baffled at Hudak’s stupidity. The Liberal immigrant tax break was an obvious trap for Hudak that could have easily been avoided. But no, he walked right into it with eyes wide shut. My God, he could have just ignored the whole thing and focused on Dalton’s pathetic reign as Premier. Oh well. I guess I’ll just vote for whichever candidate has the best plan for fighting off the zombie uprising. Not sure where ol’ Dalton stands on this issue.

    Dan’s new column is up, but the topic is for the other dumb Hudak theme you’ll no doubt be reprising soon, but the into par. applies to both:

    “Tim Hudak is the sort of politician who searches for the inchoate fears and hatreds that lie, unspoken, just below the surface of consciousness. When he finds them, he drags them up and waves them for all to see, hoping that ugly emotions will serve his political purposes. He is what an earlier generation would have called a ‘rabble rouser.'”

    It takes some tuning to get the dog-whistle pitch right…

    Well played, sir. Well played.
