If O’Toole is already triggering the far-left so early on in his campaign, he’s doing something right.
As I wrote previously, Conservative MP Erin O’Toole’s leadership campaign is off to a strong start.
And in a sign that he’s on the right track, the far-left is already being totally triggered by O’Toole saying it’s time to “Fight” and “Take Canada Back.”
Here’s what the leftists are saying:
Sorry, I came here to read what the Conservative candidate was going to say, instead I got Trump-like propaganda about vague issues of a "lost" Canada and how he will "take Canada back".
You know, the kind of Bullshit clear liars and know-nothings say.
Like Trump. Like exactly

This kind of "take Canada back" dog-whistle politics is exactly what we DON'T need. It's regressive, pernicious nonsense. O'Toole is A tool. I wouldn't hire him to be assistant manager of a branch office of a paper supply company in Sarnia. (My Canadian version of The Office.) https://t.co/WyvOFhAwH8

See this is the kind of belligerent rhetoric that upsets me about your Party: Fighting? Join the fight? Take Canada back? From whom? This isn't a war zone! On today of all days you write this? There's no fight! We are one people. Say "governing" instead. Enough violent metaphors!

There is so much wrong with this tweet. Lowest unemployment in 43 years. The government doesn't continue to raise taxes. Who are you going to "fight" to take Canada back?

"Take Canada Back" is a test.
It's a test to see if Canadians are as ignorant & anti-progress as a great portion of America seems to be. Forced to guess I would say we will pass that test. But I admit, I'm not as confident as I might have been 5 years ago. #TakeCanadaBack

The "take Canada back" is disgusting divisive rhetoric and you should be ashamed.

Take Canada back. ….hmmm….sounds like you want to Make Canada Great Again….eh? I fail to see from whom. You aren't doing yourself any favours talking like this you know.

Take Canada Back sounds suspiciously like MAGA.
If you want a corporatized wasteland just move south of the border, I’m sure you’d fit right in. Hell, you even SOUND American. https://t.co/4x04MWa0WQ

You're welcome to leave if it "isn't working". "Take Canada back" implies we've been invaded. Go fuck yourself. https://t.co/z9hvdcR3xk

Of course, the triggered leftists are ignoring one obvious truth: Repeated polls show the clear majority of Canadians saying the country and society is broken, feel the economy is rigged against them, and feel the government works for the elites, rather than for the People.
So, when O’Toole talks about “Taking Canada Back,” it resonates with millions of Canadians, regardless of what the small number of triggered leftists say.
