Johnathon Van Maren details some of the hateful abuse spoken (on social media of course) about 19 year old Sam Oosterhoff's recent win in Niagara West-Glanbrook.
From Johnathon's column:
"Here’s just a few of the comments, out of hundreds, that I could actually post:
This is why I am pro-bullying. Weiners like this would never have the confidence to express their views if we shattered their spirit early on.
That comment was liked 311 times.
Don’t even have to click the article to know he’s likely a bible thumping conservative. The world doesn’t need any more of those.
This is one of the typical ones, but without the routine f-bombs and death wishes for social conservatives. Diversity and inclusion have their limits, folks.
Just look at him and try to resist the urge to punch his face … Hes just got one of those faces. I dont know him, i dont know anything about him, but i know his face makes me want to punch it.
Right. So respond with violence to those you disagree with.
I don’t say this often, but that is an infinitely punchable face.
Who the f**** voted for this turd? Pro life ??? Im pro him getting hit by a greyhound
Oh, here’s the death wish. Less profanity than most of them.
His face just looks so punchable
This, again, is one of the dozens of comments saying the same thing, but without the accompanying curses."Oosterhoff deserves our praise for running a politically astute campaigning, and winning. The morons who spouted this hate speech are probably just jealous of Oosterhoff. That he did what they are probably incapable of doing. Winning a seat in Parliament.
Eat your hearts out children.
