Quote of the Day: Canadian Looney edition

“(Pepper spray legalization) places the onus on women to defend themselves rather than focusing on addressing and preventing gender-based violence” – Patty Hadju, Canadian MP.

The derp is strong in this one. It puts the “Knucklehead” in Caknucklehead. It is more ridiculous than trying to pass of thin slices of ham-like meat as bacon. MP Hadju made that statement in response to a fellow MP and candidate for Conservative Party leadership Kellie Leitch, who is an advocate for repealing prohibitions on civilians carrying pepper-spray.



From Milo.Yiannoupolos.net:

Carrying pepper spray and mace with the intention to defend oneself against a human attack is currently illegal in Canada; a citizen there can be charged with carrying a concealed or restricted weapon if caught doing so.

Leitch’s proposal to change that law has been met with derision from a number of feminists and liberals, including Hadju.

“While that’s a good thought, it may be very misguided as it can get everywhere in a hurry,” commented another user. “Just imagine how strong and overpowering spraying fabreeze [sic] in your bathroom is and replace that chemical flower scent with hot burning irritation.”

Skin discomfort versus getting raped or worse…remind me again how liberals are the champions of women?

Canada isn’t alone in this lunacy, there are patchwork pepper-spray and taser restrictions across the U.S. as well. However, even hoplophobic states such as Connecticut are seeing these restrictions overturned by the courts as infringements on the right to self-defense.

  1. Why does it seem that they want to protect rapists from being fought back against with something that might be effective?

    Fortunately for them, our progressive liberals who claimed they’d move to Canada, didn’t.

  2. I think that you’d find that a very large percentage of Canadians looked at Hadjus’ comment and wondered “what planet is she from?”. It’s not an attitude that is held by anyone I know – male or female (yes, I know they’re out there).
    Leitch is on a soapbox, she has made other statements for effect as she runs for the leadership of the Conservative party. She’s not wrong though – everyone needs the right and the means to effectively defend themselves.
    On the other hand Hadju isn’t completely wrong either. People do need to be educated that rape is wrong. But that’s a goal for the long term.
