Dr Dawg has a great blogpost about the reprehensible Anne-France Goldwater, who called writer Carmen Aguirre a "terrorist" and extended this slur to Nelson Mandela: http://www.drdawgsblawg.ca/2012/02/anne-france-goldwater-doubles-down.shtml
"No doubt she would include elderly members of the French Resistance. In fact, given her politics, I’m sure she would".
(lagatta sez, I believe Goldwater is of Jewish origin, so I'm not so sure - she might have given them a pass, in particular if they were Gaullists).
She herself is married to a person described as a “refugee from El Salvador,” one Leonel Zelaya-Perez. Back in those days, there really were only two sides in that country: those who fought the tyranny of the government, the coffee-growing “50 families” and the paramilitary death squads—and those who didn’t.
Given her open support of Chile’s Augusto Pinochet, I think we can surmise which side hubby was on. Perhaps she comes by her support of Latin American fascism honestly".
And the CBC, as Dawg says, certainly has a share of responsibility in this very ugly exhibition.
