This GritGirl / CdnTruth / Kinsella Stuff Looks Like Fun

So I thought I'd have a go. Let's see what happens if we turn the Cdntruth style mirror on Kinsella himself:
Warren Kinsella: Standing up for what he believes?

Warren Kinsella wrote that he has 'sympathy' for the Carleton University Student Association who cancelled support for a Cystic Fibrosis fundraiser because the disease is "not inclusive enough." He really wrote that. Sympathy.

One of Kinsella's friends wrote this on an extreme right wing message board: "Did you know we had an election and the new cabinet hasn't been named yet? We still have scum in government but we have to wait and see which scum goes where." (the 'scum' in question refers to Jews). Kinsella says the man who wrote this is "one of the bravest men in Canada."

Man, it's too easy. And it means nothing. A smear is a smear is a smear, whichever direction it goes - and borrowing again from Kinsella, he's too smart not to know that his particular brand of smear isn't just as much crap as this one.

He just doesn't have the basic human decency or integrity to admit it.
