Postscript: Khadir follies continue

Here we go again, with stupid is as stupid does.
Just when you thought Amir Khadir could not appear to be more ridiculous; this taxpayer-funded "man of the people" never ceases to mystify.
Khadir really didn't think there was anything wrong with a parody of a famous painting showing a dead premier and Khadir holding a long gun.
The poster was found in Khadir's home when police conducted their raid and arrested his daughter on 11 charges.
What really upset the Quebec Solidaire MNA was that police didn't have the courtesy to remove their shoes. But he thinks a poster of the assassination of Jean Charest to be funny.
Can you imagine the reaction if the tables were turned and there was an image of a dead Khadir at the feet of Charest?
Or how about the family grandmother this week at the bail hearing for the young Yalda Khadir who said she was ashamed to be a Quebecoise. Further, she compared Quebec to Iran and compared the student unrest here to an intifada.
The whole Khadir gang should get a grip.
But then again Amir sees himself as a latter-day Mahatma Ghandi.
As an elected member of our legislature, Amir Khadir has a duty to obey the law. He has a duty not to promote unrest and engage in civil disobedience. He has a duty not to make light of a painting depicting the murder of our premier. For these reasons, Khadir should resign.
But this self appointed separatist prophet of the radical left will only leave when voters in the Plateau show him the door. That cannot happen too soon.
Also up for consideration on this week's honour roll: Dany Villanueva.
He has managed to get himself arrested again and is fighting a deportation order back to his native Honduras. He has a history of criminality, jail time and ties to street gangs. He was already facing other charges when he was picked up this week.
Dany's brother Fredy was shot by police several years back, we are still waiting for the coroner's report on that. Dany has become quite the poster boy for the anti-police, social-injustice crowd.
Villanueva has quite a few followers here who think Canada owes him. Perhaps we do—a heartfelt goodbye and a one way ticket home.
In this age of entitlements, this one is almost beyond belief.
Former Lieutenant-Governor Lise Thibault is invoking royal prerogative to have her trial on fraud charges dismissed. She is accused of defrauding taxpayers of $750,000. Her lawyer argues in common law "the queen can do no wrong."
Stuff worthy of Louis the 14th and "L'etat, c'est moi."
Also on the award list this week is a thoughtless teacher giving students a lesson they will never forget by showing a depraved murder video. He has been deservedly dismissed.
Protesting students also showed total ignorance by imitating Nazis with their reprehensible brain-dead salutes.
Obviously they need to go back to class and take a history lesson.
Indeed, it's been that kind of week, stupid is as stupid does.
