Jason Kenney and the Apocalypse
I used to think that Jason Kenney was just another Con buffoon. Especially after he declared that gay people could get married...as long as it was to someone of the opposite sex.
Because more offensive and dumb than that, and they give you your own freak show eh?
But now I think he's one of the most dangerous politicians in Canada. A man who when he forgets to shave reminds me of the idiot version of Joe McCarthy. A man determined to change Canada from a secular democracy into a quasi-theocracy.
A nasty political thug who smeared a decent Christian aid organization like KAIROS by calling it anti-Semitic. And then had the gall to deny it.
Heaven only knows what went on here. Maybe it's just general hamhandedness. Maybe they hoped the benefits reaped whilst people assumed they'd taken a stand against anti-Semitism and/or for Israel would outweigh the damage reaped by disavowing the idea on a day when everyone's shopping instead of reading the Star...
Whatever happened, it's a complete insult to Canadians' intelligence — and Israelis', come to think of it. And it's proof positive, as if any was needed, that nobody should put any stock in what any Canadian politician says. Ever. About anything.
The man who if you check the record seems to define EVERYONE by their religion.
The Con operative who bounces around like the energizer bunny... with Jebesus as his battery...promising conservative religious groups that when they get a majority, women and gays will know their place in the New Canada.
Stephen Harper's faithful little SoCon Chucky who makes Jonathan Kay swoon.
The supporting-actor award goes to Jason Kenney. If you told me 10 years ago that a religious, unapologetic, hardcore conservative like our current Citizenship Minister would have a prominent role in government, I wouldn't have believed you. But there he is, doing his thing. And in today's Canada, he gets away with it.
But what is Jason Kenney REALLY getting away with? And why are these Harper Cons always trying to make people believe that they are the only ones who care about Israel ?
Answer: He's getting away with catering to the insane views of the Religious Right. Because the message is only partially aimed at Jewish voters. It's mostly aimed at the members of their rabid religious base, who are obsessed with Israel not because they care about Israelis. But because that's where they believe their Christian Messiah will appear, and float them up to heaven...leaving the Jews and the rest of us behind.
But not before a great battle takes place. A battle that many of these Con fanatics are obsessed with. The one Harper's little pet, the homophobe porker Charles McVety, is always babbling on about.
The Battle of Gog and Magog.
Oh. My. Goggy. I apologize for the length of the video, and its disturbing content. But believe me it was the shortest one I could find. And it does explain why these Cons claim to love Israel more than the Israelis. Why they are opposed to a Palestinian state.
Why they smear decent people who criticize Israel's policies for the most moral of reasons, by calling them anti-Semites and terrorist supporters.
And yes I know it sounds crazy. And it is. But then that's what shocked Chirac.
Stranger still are new accounts emerging from France describing how former president Jacques Chirac was utterly baffled by a 2003 telephone conversation in which Bush reportedly invoked fanatical Old Testament prophecy – including the Earth-ending battle with forces of evil, Gog and Magog – in his arguments to enlist France in the Coalition of the Willing.
And since Jason Kenney was one of the strongest supporters of the Iraq War, and so was Stephen Harper. And Harper belongs to an apocalyptic church, and his PMO has more powerful SoCons per square foot than George Bush's White House did....it can happen HERE.
And it already is. These ugly Cons are stealing our beautiful country from right under our noses.
We know what they want. We know who they are.
Fight them. Fight them. Fight them. Don't let them win.
