Peter Henderscare ‏@Henderburn
@michaelcoren fuck you, you worthless garbage person. I just saw a soldier die and you’re plugging your stupid book.

Michael Coren ‏@michaelcoren
I will say again, I wish I had been wrong when I said there would be more attacks. Re book – apologies: it was an automatic link.

CC ‏@canadiancynic
Dear @michaelcoren: It’s called a “screenshot.” Nice try, though. …

Maybe, just maybe, the Ottawa and Quedbec terrorist attacks will force @justintrudeau to support the war against ISIS. #canada #cdnpoli

Ray Heard ‏@RayHeard
Media Party has to eat crow as Parliament Hill attacked by terrorists day after Quebec attack. They scoffed at this prospwect. @cdnpoli.

Eve Adams, MP @MPEveAdams
My family fought in the Revolution. Unarmed they lost to Soviet tanks all the while praying for honest bystanders to help. ISIL enslaves 2/3

Lowell Green on @cfra suggesting we need to censor “the Internet and satellite TV” to stop radicalization.

    I’ll correct SunNewsNetwork now. I think they meant to tweet ‘credulous’ not ‘credible’. God bless Roy Mac and Ben M for reminding us that unimportant stuff still goes on all the time, whether or not we care. Brian Mulroney is 107.

  2. Papadoc says:

    I hope all these silly tweeters are feeling ashamed today for losing their brains yesterday. One nutter gets loose with a gun and the city locks down. Harper has everybody scared shitless with his bullying, bragging war talk. This isn’t an act of terror, but the result of mental instability and Canada’s choice not to deal with that issue.

  3. Bunyak says:

    If Lowell Green convinces the government to pull the plug on, will I receive a refund?

  4. drdjet says:

    Papadoc is right, but there is also a wider nutter context. Muslim Arabs have been ground down so badly that now they have an entire movement of armed nutters. Sadly this gives hater twerps like Harper an excuse to follow the big dogs into a war, and to build a police state here. What would it take to go back to the source and stop grinding down the Muslim Arabs? Just asking.

  5. OJM says:

    Hmmm…was Clement actually in his office, cleverly tweeting false intel to misdirect the jihadi hordes? The classic nobody-here-but-us-chickens ploy, updated to the Digital Age.

  6. diggle says:

    It’s the usual, predictable deluge of drivel.

  7. Buckwheat says:

    Hmm. Is it too late to add to the list of Wankers of the Year?

  8. Patrick60 says:

    Sadly,Orwellian legislation will ride this tide of hysteria right through to Royal Assent.
