CONTENT WARNING: This story contains graphic content. Reader discretion is advised..Federal Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre denounced Diagolon leader Jeremy MacKenzie for making lewd comments about his wife, and said his office is reaching out to the RCMP to explore laying criminal charges..During a recent livestream, MacKenzie made jokes about sexually assaulting Anaida Poilievre.."These men are dirtbags," Poilievre said on Twitter on Monday. "Frankly, like most Canadians, until about a month ago I had never heard of Diagolon and these losers. They are all odious.".Poilievre was referring to MacKenzie's comments during a recent livestream, where Anaida's attractiveness became a subject of conversation.."She is hot as f*ck. Oh my goodness," MacKenzie said. "Like a midnight snack, when everyone's asleep, I'm gonna sneak into this fridge and cut myself off a piece of that Venezuelan brown cake.".One of the people on the stream asked MacKenzie what his wife Morgan May would think about his comments if she could hear them. May is currently in jail for allegedly failing to pay for $64 in gas.."No, she would be like, 'she's hot, we should both f*ck her," and I would be like 'we should, let's rape her,' MacKenzie joked.."It's not really a sex thing, it's like, we just want to show people that we can do things to them if we want to. It's a power move.".In his statement, Poilievre said MacKenzie's language has "no place in Canada," and nobody should face such abuse.."People can attack my politics, they can call me names, they can protest my ideas and what I stand for, but threatening my wife and family is appalling and I will not tolerate it. Leave my family alone.".Poilievre added that his office has referred MacKenzie's comments to the RCMP to asses "whether criminal charges should be laid.".READ MORE: Leader of Diagolon claims to be 'waging war' on media.Poilievre's feelings towards MacKenzie are in sharp contrast with a month ago, when he was photographed shaking hands with the 35-year-old during a meet and greet in Nova Scotia. .Several Liberal and NDP MPs called for Poilievre to denounce MacKenzie by name in the days following. Instead, Poilievre denounced racism "and all who spread it," and said he couldn't be held responsible for the actions of every person he met..MacKenzie has become a controversial and polarizing figure in Canadian politics. So-called 'anti-hate groups' have characterized his group Diagolon as a far-right, accelerationist militia group, pointing to instances of racism, antisemitism, and anti-government rhetoric its members have expressed..MacKenzie has repeatedly stated that Diagolon is a "joke country," and that the mainstream media, left-leaning politicians and RCMP has exaggerated the threat his group poses.."There's no militia and there's no hidden cache of weapons. Diagolon is just an amalgamation of conservative Canadians and Americans that think a certain way," MacKenzie previously told the Western Standard..Liberal MP Mark Gerretsen, who has previously been critical of Poilievre's economic proposals, came to his defence on Twitter on Monday. "I 100% agree with Pierre Poilievre," Gerretsen said, before sharing a screenshot of a threatening message he recently received that was also aimed at his wife.."Just so everyone knows exactly what he is talking about, here is a message I received last week. Attack me all you want. Leave our families out of this," Gerretsen said..MacKenzie told the Western Standard that it is "unfortunate" that Poilievre is choosing to focus on "such trivial matters like small-time podcast comedians making jokes."."As opposition leader, he should be focused on the alarming excess mortality rates, record high suicides, and the increasing suffering of Canadians," he said. MacKenzie, who is a veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces, added that Canada is "banging war drums in a place we have no business in," in reference to the Russia-Ukraine conflict.."But if this is what he chooses to spend his mental energy on instead, that says a lot more about him and his ability to handle responsibility than it does me."
