Tom Flanagan: Punk At Large

I spend a great deal of time editing myself in this blog and on my radio show. My fear is about sinking to the level of people like Tom Flanagan, the former advisor to Stephen Harper and yet I wonder if I am being too damned prissy. He is quite bluntly a scumbag and when the revolution comes I believe he and his ilk will be the first to be put up against the wall -- and deservedly so.

 The fact that he feels he can with impunity make threats against Julian Assange says everything one needs to know about where our country is heading under continued Tory rule. The elite and the police can do as they please and the rest of can expect to be harassed for trying to stand up for our rights and things we believe in.

Witness Flanagan's response to Janet Reymond who says, according to Bill Graveland of the Globe and Mail,  ...she felt “justifiably outraged” after Tom Flanagan mused on a CBC political talk show last week that the founder of WikiLeaks should be killed. So she e-mailed Mr. Flanagan after his televised comment and he sent back a one-sentence reply that said simply, “Better be careful, we know where you live.”

As he did in the case of his comment about Julian Assange he will no doubt claim that he was just kidding because this is what cowards do. And Tom Flanagan is the worst kind of coward. He will likely hide behind the skirts of the powerful for whom he worked and who are his allies. There will be no consequences for his intemperate speech and veiled threats. Like any street punk with no courage of his own but the weight of numbers to back him up he spits out obscenities safe in the knowledge he'll never be called out to defend his words... unless of course one day he stumbles into the wrong neck of the woods and there's no there to stick their neck out to defend him.



Speaking of pompous blowhards,

Lefties like you have a diseased brain and a waste of space.

Remember: being a lefty is a mental disease. You should seek professional help, you m o r o n !

Anon #1 - You haven't the wit to write a complete sentence and I'm the one with the troubled brain?

You, like all of your ilk, fail to address the issue raised that one assumes with which you disagree. The punk flanagan and his threats directed at Mr. Assange and a woman from Toronto who had the temerity to disagree with his obnoxiousness. No comments?

As for your ad hominen attack, well it's pathetic that you engage in invective with no arguments to back up anything you try to assert other than I see the world differently than you. Go read a book, buy a dictionary, do something that would make your mother proud. If she saw what you wrote she might weep with shame that she did such a poor job of preparing you for life.

Cheers!

This man Flanagan is obviously a man educated beyond his intelligence.

Dear first anonymous,
Having a contrasting view is a mental disease? Maybe thats why some people don't want to live in your world or have your ilk as a part of ours.
I would wish you a nice life but that would be a lie.
