And now Harper rolls over

From Politics Watch:

"I regret the publication of this material in several media outlets," Harper said in a statement released late Tuesday afternoon. "While we understand this issue is divisive, our government wishes that people be respectful of the beliefs of others.

"I commend the Canadian Muslim community for voicing its opinion peacefully, respectfully and democratically."

Can anyone imagine the Prime Minister making a similar statement regarding a similar 'insult' towards Christianity or Judaism? Of course not. Christians or Jews don't burn down buildings when they don't get their own way.

Listen to this guy: I commend the Canadian Muslim community for voicing its opinion peacefully, respectfully and democratically. Since when does the leader of our nation have to 'commend' a group for obeying the laws? Why does he sound like a hostage negotiator dealing with an unstable lunatic? How can he give up our free speech and right not to be intimidated so easily?

I was worried that the Conservatives were turning into the Liberals -- how did it happen so fast?

Shame on you Bruce! What is wrong with commending a community for not reacting violently to a provocation?

Don't you ever praise Max and Talia for appropriate behaviour?
Or do you simply observe silently expecting them to behave properly, and pounce on them when they do something wrong? I'm sure you don't.
