Stephen Harper and the House of Pain
It was simple, clear, and so wonderfully Canadian.
A firm but gentle reminder that Parliament can't be stepped on. And a call for compromise.
A great decision from a decent and brave man.
Mr. Milliken can now look forward to a taste of the conservative anger machine that seemed to paralyze our Governor-General a year and a half ago. What will be said of our nation's Speaker on the openmouthsphere in the days to come? Not a Canadian? Tool of the separatists? Wants the terrorists to win? A crypto-socialist? Must be from Toronto?
It was also one of the most significant decisions in Canadian Parliamentary history, and Stephen Harper wasn't even there to hear it. Can you believe that? Talk about CONTEMPT.
No doubt he was watching it in his office, surrounded by his thuggish Con henchmen, swearing like a mob boss, and plotting his next move.
Because let's not kid ourselves, the danger of a snap election is still very real.
And let's never forget the kind of political monster we are dealing with. A power hungry ideologue desperate to implement his RepubliCon agenda, and change Canada beyond recognition.
A sinister religious fanatic who would put his extremist beliefs and those of his rabid base before the lives of poor women.
Even when pushing a proposal to save lives among those living in wretched faraway conditions as his signature accomplishment, Harper has found a way to set his government apart from the opposition parties
Given that he’s never seen parliamentary harmony he couldn’t inflame into political divisions, perhaps poisoning this motherhood initiative will end up a fitting Stephen Harper legacy after all.
The legacy of a twisted, tortured man who will do ANYTHING to smear his opponents.
Once he called Richard Colvin a Taliban dupe. Today his thugs are going after Frank Graves and the CBC.
Tomorrow he'll be going after the Speaker...
Oh yeah. The danger is very real. The next two weeks could determine the future of this country.
Organize, unite, prepare to attack Stephen Harper and his evil RepubliCons harder than ever. Because they are preparing to launch the greatest assault on our Parliamentary system this country has ever seen.
The culture war that some Canadians don't believe is happening, because as Doyle says they're too polite or something, is about to EXPLODE.
And two burning questions demand to be answered. Or scrawled on every wall in Canada.
How can such a loathsome regime call itself a Canadian government?
And what is the monster HIDING?
