Oy vey! Former Conservative campaign manager complains of Jewish media conspiracy

It looks like Gordon Stamp has some competition for the dumbest Conservative campaign manager of 2004 award.

I really don’t know what to say about this story in the Richmond News, so I’ll just let it speak for itself. It concerns comments made by Robbie Robertson, the former campaign manager for Richmond Conservative candidate Darrel Reid (I blogged on him here). Mr. Robertson opined to a local newspaper about why he felt Conservative Christian candidates were unfairly targeted by media company CanWest Global.

Local Tories doing damage control
By Eve Edmonds

The Conservative party's Richmond riding association is in full-blown damage control following comments a former campaign staffer made about Jewish-owned media.

It even tried to revoke Robbie Robertson's membership - before learning he didn't have one.

"I can confirm he's not a member. I don't know if he ever was," said riding association president Gary Cross.

Robertson, Conservative candidate Darrel Reid's former campaign manager, caused a stir earlier this week when he referred to a liberal bias in the Jewish-owned CanWest media empire.
"The CanWest Global media empire is controlled by a Jewish family and they have been the most aggressive family to attack Christians, especially Conservative Christians," Robertson told the News on the day of the federal election.
