One who posts a deliberately provocative message with the intention of causing disruption and argument.
I noted an example Monday. It is a contribution from a former professional columnist who took on a career as a lobbyist some years ago. That effort was stalled by the author's association with convicted criminals and people able to award others immunity from prosecution.
Perhaps Brian Kieran is reduced to pay-per-word work while he reestablishes his writing bona fides. In any case, I thought it rather bold for a person perhaps not yet rehabilitated in the public eye to sling very rude insults at Chris Delaney, a person who displeased the corporate world as Lead Organizer of FightHST. It doesn't take much thought to attach a likely motivation to Brian Kieran's shot. This was part of his open letter to Bill Vander Zalm:
"Next time you turn around and see BC First “leader” Chris Delaney mincing in your shadow, please say “hi” for me. You can tell him I think he’s a silly little man. I don’t know why you hang out with him. As my dear departed colleague Marjorie Nichols use to say: “He doesn’t have the brains that God gave a goose.”Recommend this post
