Stupid Rex Murphy quote of the month: Protest is a “moral disease”
CBC commentator Rex Murphy hasn't won many fans among activists of the left-wing persuasion with his climate-change denial, dismissal of Canada's genocide against First Nations, and other right-wing ramblings.
Those activists probably won't appreciate the Stupid Rex Murphy Quote of the Month, from his latest column in the National Post:
