Tom Flanagan self-destructs

PMO not happy, Wildrose and CBC dump him. The University of Calgary is at least showing signs of discomfort and I imagine there's a meeting or two taking place.

The conservative pundit and University of Calgary political science professor made the comments at a lecture about changes to the Indian Act in Lethbridge, Alta. on Wednesday night. They were recorded and posted online by someone in attendance.  

"I certainly have no sympathy for child molesters, but I do have some grave doubts about putting people in jail because of their taste of pictures," said Flanagan in the video.

Seems, thankfully, as if there's a limit to conservatives' tolerance of their own intellectual and moral regression. Someone ought to ask Barry Cooper for comment, just because.

yeah, the conservatives were fine with his calling for assassinations of people who leak info, but draw the line at child porn

I would think according to Conservatives there is probable cause to look at his hard drives, and his computers as well.

They had Mr. Cooper on CBC this morning trying to explain how Flanagan was being badly misunderstood. Of course, Flanagan's admission that he had been on NAMBLA's mailing list doesn't exactly make any defense of his words terribly convincing ...
