Time to again talk about @MikeBarrettON. A far right Dominionist who denies man-made climate change, voted against the conversion “therapy” ban, & vehemently opposes a woman’s right to choose. He was helped into power by anti-choice extremist groups like #CLC. #cdnpoli #ONpoli
Michael Barrett’s has recently taken to putting out #PierrePoilievre type propaganda videos. At the end of his most recent disinformation contribution, he attempted, I guess, humour? 😣. But ironically just conveyed he was being upfront about his dishonesty? #ONpoli #cdnpoli
Michael Barrett, along with most of his far right cohorts, had very little (or nothing at all) to say about 2 deadly serious events: the #January6thInsurrection & the assassination attempt of 🇨🇦’s Prime Minister. Barrett said nothing about either.


#ONpoli #cdnpoli
…after having nothing at all to say about an assassination attempt on PMJT by a RW conspiracy consuming “sausage maker”, Michael Barrett, 2 days later, did retweet & congratulate the far right anti-democratic (& later to become, #January6th insurrectionist), #EliseStefanik.
Michelle Rempel followed this same pattern of behaviour. Saying nothing about either of those deadly serious events, while she too promoted Stefanik. #Cdnpoli #ONpoli #ABleg
#MichaelBarrett like #PierrePoilievre, #MichelleRempel & other far right #Conservatives, use propaganda as a means of data collection & fundraising. There’s always some new “petition” or other, asking you to “sign your name here”. #cdnpoli #NeverVoteConservative #ONpoli #ABleg

This needs to be restated again & again. If an MP is on this list, it is because they were helped into power by far right radicals, “Campaign Life Coalition”. #CLC supports Christian candidates who oppose abortion in ALL circumstances, including rape & incest. #cdnpoli #CPC ImageImage
More on this here: . This list includes #PierrePoilievre #MichaelBarrett, #MichaelCooper, deputy CPC leader, #CandiceBergen, conversion “therapy” cheerleader, #GarnettGenuis, anti-refugee zealot, Kelly Block, among others. #cdnpoli #NeverVoteConservative https://t.co/hTs1wESfzr Image
There’s another little talked about subset of these RW religious cults. It’s called “Christian Domestic Discipline”, where the wife must submit or face routine spankings (JFC!). Here’s one of their websites. …ndomesticdisciplinelife.wordpress.com. CDD Is part of Dominionist ideology. #cdnpoli ImageImageImage

At least 1/2 (or more) of the #CPC is made up of extremists. Christo-fascist Dominionists, #ClimateCrisis deniers, anti-LGBTQ, anti-Muslim bigots, white nationalist sympathizers, anti-choice. This is not where the majority of 🇨🇦 is. But the Right wants power by any means #cdnpoli
The number of anti-choice far-right “Christian” coalition members in the #CPC increased sharply during & after #StephenHarper’s reign.

That influence has increased, not decreased. The #CPC has moved sharply to the right in lockstep with the #GOP. #cdnpoli #NeverVoteConservative

Question: Who is Canada’s #RonDeSantis?

Kenney or Ford? #ONpoli #ABleg #cdnpoli #ABhealth #onhealth
They’re all using the same playbook & script. “It’s something we just have to live with” is the official lines from all of these guys, Kenney, Ford, DeSantis etc. Image

Given everything that’s been happening in the world, I think it’s time to revisit the subject of #ActiveMeasures.

Not just for Soviets anymore.

A 🧵.

#USpoli #cdnpoli #UKPolitics #EUpolitics #nzpol #auspoI #Brexit
When the Kremlin launched its weaponization of social media prior to 🇺🇸 2016 election, there was great concern that other malignant actors would quickly adopt these techniques.

They did.
Now, not only state-actor operations, but for-hire malign influence operations are reaching epidemic proportions as well, in countries around the world. (nytimes.com/2021/07/25/wor…) #disinformation #propaganda #ActiveMeasures

Since #Harper is trending, let me take this opportunity to remind everyone that 🇨🇦 is still paying a heavy price for the decade of darkness from his #CPC.

#Conservatives self-servingly claim he’s long gone from office & it’s ridiculous to invoke him. Wrong. #cdnpoli
There are too many acts of corruption, malice, subterfuge, fraud & blind ideology to possibly list in a Twitter thread. So I’ll just bring up some highlights.

1st. Harper’s secret #FIPA with China, where he sold 🇨🇦 out & tied the hands of all future Cdn governments for 31 years.
Then there was Harper & #CPC selling 🇨🇦’s Wheat Board to a conglomerate controlled by the Saudis. #cdnpoli

Be on the lookout for accounts like these & accounts using this symbol. Report & block. They are toxic. #cdnpoli
What does it say that #CPC is peddling identical messaging as an openly fascist group? #cdnpoli
There are multiple accounts that have sprung up in the past year or so using “Canada First” &/or “Groyper”. (Goypers usually use some version of Pepe the Frog in the profile). These are far right extremists profiles, peddling RW propaganda & disinformation. #cdnpoli
