Just a year after pulling Tom Flanagan as a speaker because of these comments on child porn:
“On the child pornography issue … I certainly have no sympathy for child molesters. But I do have some great doubts about putting people in jail because of their taste in pictures. I don’t look at these pictures. (see here)
The Manning Centre has welcomed him back with open arms:
A controversial Conservative strategist who was dropped from the speakers’ list at last year’s gathering of the conservative core is slated to talk at this year’s event in Ottawa next month.
Tom Flanagan, a former Conservative strategist and mentor to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, is one of 30 advertised speakers for the sixth-annual Manning Networking Conference, which attracts Conservative supporters from across the country. (see here)
This isn’t the first time Manning has exposed himself as a blatant hypocrite as he has publicly endorsed and invited hard-core federal Liberal Christie Clark to speak (see here) and as Ezra Levant exposed, is training radical environmentalists (see here).
There’s no doubt that Preston Manning and his Centre have become fully corrupted.
