Sun Media gasbag-in-chief Ezra Levant last week waddled valiantly into the fray to defend the institution of marriage from the libidinous Liberals, apoplectic that Justin Trudeau would pose for a picture with a wedding party and—Shame! Shame!—actually give the bride a peck on the cheek.
It was, quoth Ethical Ez, like a scene from the Wedding Crashers, “that sex comedy where slutty men go to weddings uninvited to bed the maids of honour.”
Justin was just like his “promiscuous” father:
“Liona Boyd. Margot Kidder. Kim Cattrall. He banged every one, he was a slut… What you think of this picture depends in part on what you think of weddings, and marriages, and fidelity and faithfulness. Trudeau invaded a personal, intimate day, a day about the commitment of a man and a woman to each other,” Levant said.
Fidelity. Faithfulness. Commitment.
And our Ezra’s no ergonomic armchair moralist. He’s walked the walk, oh verily, right down the Aisle of Holy Matrimony.
It’s hard to imagine, but he hasn’t always been a total nudnik. Indeed, back in the nineties, the much younger and prettier Ezra, 27, was a libertarian swinger, who wooed and won a 24-year-old fashion industry novitiate by the name of Golda van Messel.
Ezra and Golda married in October 1999 – the kosher sushi was to die for! — and settled down in Toronto, hoping to raise a family.
Alas, it was not to be. By 2005, with their marriage sunk in the tailings pond of despair, the unhappy couple filed for divorce.
Golda, who earned less than $20,000 a year in the shmatte biz, claimed $3,500 a month in spousal support.
Fidelity. Faithfulness. Er…
Ezra counter-offered zero spousal support, noting that his annual salary from the Western Standard was a mere $31,000 per year. Curiously, court documents reveal his 2004 income wasn’t taxable. (Ezra a tax avoider? Pas possible!)
So, in the end, the uxorious Ezra made no attempt to reconcile and fought paying Golda so much as a penny.
‘Til death do us part.
How dare Ezra diminish Pierre’s formidable and, dare I say, enviable swordsman’s reputation by omitting Barbra Streisand from his list of accomplishments? Pure jealously.
The thing about Ezra is that his outrageous frat-boy asshole schtick has already been done to death by much more gifted assholes, world-class buffoon-reactionaries with a real talent for helping their dim, maladjusted fans feel good about themselves. Compared to the pros he’s a Borscht Belt comic with no timing, a mohel with the shakes, vegan cream cheese and faux-lox on a gluten-free bagel…
As usual, the truth has come out and once again Ezra is wrong. The father in law and the photographer tell a tale so different from Ezra’s that someone has to be lying. Maybe no-one ever told him about interviewing witnesses.
Ezra seems to be doing his best ( high praise indeed ) to recruit Liberal votes.
Jewish Canadians should be highly embarrassed that Ezra Levant is one of them.
