d'Affaire du Canada II - Stephen Harper and François Bigot

bigot - A bigot is a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from his own.

A bigot will continue to hold these opinions even when confronted with evidence that challenges such stereotypes. To protect his views, he may either dismiss the challenges he encounters as an aberration to the norm and ignore the fact that they threaten to undercut his prejudices. On a more extreme level, he may deny the evidence altogether. Both reactions can be classified as forms of cognitive dissonance.

Stephen Harper may have finally found a natural connection to Quebec in the person of François Bigot. The connection was made by Richard Burnett writer of the column "Three Dollar Bill. Burnett clearly points out Harper's failing on same-sex marriage comparing it to one of our earlier less than honourable leaders.

You will find Richard Burnett's column here.
