Re. “Razorblade rant goes against individual choice,” July 18)
Keith Sketchley’s neo-conservative, right wing bluster is well known to Gazette readers. In his most recent submission the Saanich resident launches into his typical personal attack.
Gazette contributor G.E. Mortimore is the target in this instance. In all too familiar ‘Sketchley Speak,’ Mortimore is accused of “scare mongering,” wanting a “free lunch” and being intimidated by the notion of “individual freedom.”
This is the language of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Harperite sycophants.
Sketchley’s language is that of a bully: confrontational, personal and devoid of facts. The good news, however, is that thanks to Harper’s Draconian approach to governance – coupled (with neo-conservative bombast gleefully provided by people like Sketchley) the collective consciousness of Canadians is on full alert.
That collective consciousness is responding effectively in every corner of this great country and the West Shore is no exception.
That’s bad news for Harper, Clark and their supporters like Sketchley, because they will all soon be irrelevant.
