Dion on anti-Semitism

For Immediate release
December 8, 2006

Statement from Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion Regarding the Anti-Semitic Comments Made Against Bob Rae and Arlene Perly Rae

The hateful comments made against Liberal leadership candidate Bob Rae and his wife Arlene Perly Rae at the Liberal leadership convention in Montreal are reprehensible and will not be tolerated within the Liberal Party of Canada.

Canada is a nation founded on diversity and tolerance for people of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds. The Liberal Party of Canada celebrates and promotes this diversity and tolerance.

There is no room for abhorrent comments such as these within our Party. The individuals who made these despicable and prejudiced comments are condemned by myself and Liberals throughout Canada.

I await his response to Mr. Graham's Goebbels comments.

Why is Bob Rae's Jewishness hidden by the media from the Canadian public?

His Jewishness?

Didn't Prime Minister Harper get into trouble for trying to muzzle people in his caucus? If someone is Anti-Semetic, let them speak, so we know who they are and they can be voted out next time. If it turns out to be more than one or two rogue members, then consider the conclusion that the bulk of the party shares the same view. Oh, wait, this is the same argument I made about the Conservatives or any party for that matter.

I wonder why he jumped all over the Mrs. Rae slings and completely has no opinion, no response to what the former stand in liberal leader had to say, which was comparing conservative mp's to one of hitler's men...goebbels or something like that.. pretty low blow that was..and one wonders what would lead him to even get to a thought like that.
Where's the apology from him, I ask.
Conservatives are under a microscope with the media..no move goes unreported. However, we have even more proof now of how selective the media is in reporting the Liberals actions.
Thank goodness the Conservatives just continue to do their job..moving onward and upward, which is precisely what the canadian voter's want us to do.

yes...john m reynolds...interesting spin isn't it....
