Will Horwath hold those candidates to the same standard as PC candidates who made controversial statements? Doubtful.
After joining the Wynne Liberals in a desperate attempt to attack the PCs by dredging up old social media comments made by a few candidates, the Ontario NDP are facing questions about some of their own candidates.
As reported by iPolitics, candidate Dwayne Morgan blamed former U.S. President George W. Bush for the September 11 attacks, saying “Now if they could do something about Bush’s role in 9/11, people could finally get closure.”
The NDP appear to have accepted his apology for that and other controversial tweets, and are not calling on him to resign.
NDP candidate Glen Archer is also facing criticism after saying Kathleen Wynne “should be in prison,” yet even though Andrea Horwath tried attacking Ford over people saying similar things (which Ford totally disavowed), it seems she won’t be removing Archer either.
Additionally, Horwath has apparently not yet disavowed those comments, showing the same kind of hypocrisy as Kathleen Wynne who demanded that PC candidates resign for controversial statements, only to refuse to get rid of candidates on her team with their own controversies.
Clearly, the closer people look at the Ontario NDP candidates, the more far-left radical extremism people are finding.
