My friends to the north — a message from Paul Weyrich
Here’s a snapshot of WingNutDaily‘s screaming complimentary headline, analyzing the political state of things in the Great White North:
It turns out Canadians are simply too “liberal and hedonistic” to change political orientation overnight and change will take time, says Paul Weyrich of the Free Congress Foundation.
“The people of Canada have become so liberal and hedonistic that the public ethic in the country immediately could not be reversed,” Weyrich says in an email analysis to allies. “It will take time. But with leadership it well may be possible to change the public ethic.”
The culturally conservative organization compared Harper’s victory in Canada to the election of Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback, an extreme right-wing, pro-life legislator, to the position of governor of Massachusetts, a liberal state which has legalized gay marriage.

Weyrich did not return phone calls to expand on his analysis.
…Weyrich said one Canadian Conservative contact told him Harper had little room to manoeuvre in the new Parliament. “My pessimistic friend said that inasmuch as Harper’s is a minority government, Harper could do almost nothing to encourage the country to adopt a more reasonable view of the United States and to correct some premises of Cultural Marxism, which Canadians have espoused, such as same-sex marriage and abortion-on-demand,” he wrote.
The solution, he said, would be for Harper to pack the Canadian courts with conservatives.
