Let's face it. If Stephen Harper had said anything at all during his visit to Auschwitz, it would have been condemned as too trite.
Instead, he chose to keep his emotion as private as possible and left his thoughts in a book of remembrance.
Oh, but that's not good enough for the Star. Instead of showing a photo of the Prime Minister kneeling in respect and prayer, the Red Star displays an image of Harper ranting in Parliament. The inference is that he has plenty to say there, but his lack of public rhetoric in Auschwitz does what? Portray some kind of lack of feeling?
Some emotion is so intense, it cannot be conveyed by words.
But the Toronto Star Inquirer's level of insight is so superficial, that it's not surprising they would pillory the Prime Minister for the way he handled himself at such a profound occasion.
Hunter points out at CBL's that the Globe originally had posted the photo of Harper kneeling, but then changed it. Why?
She suggests that it may be time for all the 'knuckle draggers' to start fighting back.
