Vancouver-Kingsway’s most infamous Islamic terrorist sympathizer and recently-punted Green party candidate, Kevin Potvin, evidently believes that there’s no such thing as bad publicity.
After being raked in what he calls the “corporate” (read: neocon, Zionist-controlled, Satanic) media for an article written by him in his own publication, The Republic, stating directly that he cheered for Osama bin Ladin on 9/11, Potvin is striking back in a curious way: he now claims that journalists and society as a whole have been cowed by relentless, shadowy pressure from their corporate masters to show an appropriate level of sympathy for those slaughtered on that day and condemnation for their killers.
I didn’t cheer on 9/11. I certainly didn’t feel a lump of love in my heart for the people who did it. And as much as Potvin has attempted to tell himself otherwise, the vast majority of clear-thinking and moral citizens in our part of the world didn’t, either.
But Potvin seems to have found a home, quite literally on the political fringe. Work Less Party cofounder Condrad Schmidt says of Potvin: “He’s a smart man, and he’s intelligent. You couldn’t ask for a better candidate. And we’ll run him in Kingsway–where else?”
As a related aside, the video above shows leftist icon Noam Chomsky dismissing the possibility of a neocon conspiracy behind the 9/11 attacks.
