Rex Murphy - Rest in Peace

Post by Jlabute »

I just saw Pierre Poilievre give a warm talk about Rex Murphy. Thank-you Rex for your words of wisdom and reason. A real Canadian.

Rex Murphy was truly a brilliant mind. A National treasure. He will be sorely missed. His last column was published the day before he died.

RIP REX

From his last article, written two days ago:
After his clumsy, incompetent and amateur eight-year holiday as prime minister, our country, Canada, is diminished on the world stage, and worrisomely scattered and incohesive on the home front. Canada has “no core values” according to the one person most responsible for nursing the “core values” of the nation. And so, the world has no sense of where Canada really stands because we really don’t have a stand; and by Trudeau’s lights, our “postnationalist” Canada of “no core values,” just by definition alone, has nothing to say. (Query: Should a post-nationalist state have a seat at the UN — the United Nations.

Are Pride parades and an infatuation with global warming enough to fuse a great country into one magnificent union? Don’t think so, but that’s really all we’ve seen from Trudeau.)

His last article was lambasting our idiot loser of a PM. Thank you Rex for your service. You loved this country, and because of that, like all of your fellow Canadians, you were sickened by what you've witnessed from our loser disgusting government over the past nine years.

RIP Rex.

Rex Murphy was one of the great commentators on Canada, its societal issues, and its politics. A great man. He will be missed.

Rex was to the media as Don Cherry was to hockey.

RIP columnist Rex Murphy............will be missed.

How great it would have been having you around for the next Federal election and the complete and total eradication of Trudeau and his band of low IQ'd Liberal losers!

I think he was smart enough to figure the outcome of next election before he passed away. But, as you said, too bad he cannot celebrate with us
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

"The King of Cult" movie producer/director Roger Corman has died. He played a huge part in inspiring many of todays great movie directors such as Scorsese, Demme, Ron Howard, James Cameron, Coppola, Tarantino and gave many actors we know today their career start in movies decades ago...........RIP.

Great to read the many tributes to Rex Murphy.
A great thinker, writer, a no nonsense commentator.
There are not many Rex Murphys' left.
Conrad Black still speaks his mind on a variety of topics; Chris Hedges; Noam Chomsky and a few others, but pushed to the margins, replaced for the most part by nonsense, poorly sourced and pushed by special interests.
Thanks Rex
.A job well done.
