Stephen Harper and the Fallen Women
I don't know if Helena Guergis is guilty of anything except marrying Rahim Jaffer, but something about her ritual humiliation at the hands of Stephen Harper is really starting to stink.
Because either Harper believed the word of this character
And thought it was sufficient to sic the cops on her. In which case his judgement must surely be questioned.
Or he knew that it all sounded a little dubious, but made a show out of humiliating her anyway, to make himself look like a strong leader, make her look like a fallen woman. And buy himself some time, in case he decides to go for an early election.
In which case he deserves to be scorned for being an immoral bastard...and a COWARD.
Because humiliating female cabinet ministers comes all too easily to this political thug.
Remember how he treated Rona Ambrose?
And who can ever forget what he did to Diane Ablonczy...
Throwing her on the bonfire for daring to fund the Gay Pride parade, and upsetting his rabid theocratic base. Even though she was one of his most loyal followers.
But then again why would anyone be surprised? When Stephen Harper's church tells him that women should be subordinate.
The Alliance Church, to which Harper has belonged for decades, believes Jesus Christ will return to Earth in an apocalypse, won't ordain women, strongly opposes abortion and divorce, condemns homosexuality as the most base of sins and believes those who aren't born-again are "lost."
And no doubt in his mind, fallen uppity women must be PUNISHED.
But not fallen men like Maxime Bernier, who was not kicked out of the Con caucus. Even though he lost secret documents, and partied with a biker chick who once hung out with the Hell's Angels.
Now I don't care what happens to Helena Guergis. Anything that hurts the Cons is good as far as I'm concerned. And any woman or gay person who works for a man like Harper deserves what they get.
But fair is fair. And now that he called in the cops this story is as much about Stephen Harper's judgement as it is about Helena Guergis.
And never in the history of Canada has there been such a twisted and evil Prime Minister. A hyper partisan who would do ANYTHING for a majority. And never stops spinning his little webs of deception...
So all I can say, is what I always say.
Defeat him, crush him, send him back to his spidey hole in Alberta.
Before he destroys our country.
Before he burns us ALL...
