For more than five years, in my humble way, I tried to illustrate what the horror of a HarperCon majority would mean for Canada. I made this photoshop three years ago.
But they got their preciousssssss majority, and now like a pack of hungry zombies, they are totally out of control.
They are tearing the flesh off our parliamentary democracy, they are trying to turn us into an insane prison state. They are torching the planet in the name of Big Oil.
And of course, I've tried to illustrate that too...
But nothing I have done, or could ever hope to do, better illustrates the true horror of the Harper Cons, than the sight of the Alberta M.P. Jim Hillyer, celebrating a vote to kill the long gun registry.
By giving the opposition the
Gawd. I suppose we should be grateful that he didn't take his dick out and wave it like a flag eh? Because those vulgar
But have you ever seen anything so disgusting? Or anything that better illustrates the contempt the Cons have for this country and its values.
Today Hillyer was claiming he didn't he mean to offend anyone.
"No offence was intended. No one who sincerely looks at the video and the timing of the video would think for a second that I intended offence towards victims of violence."
But nothing can conceal the fact that him and the other Con good ol' boys were screaming like jackals. Or hogs in heat.
Torontonian Elaine Lumley was in the gallery the day of the vote, and she said it wasn’t just Hillyer behaving badly that day.
"There was a lot of high-fiving and laughing," said Lumley. "They kind of turned it into a huge celebration."
Even as the precious legacy of these murdered women lay dying...
Oh boy. If foulness had a party it must surely be the Harper Cons.
You know, in a post today Steve V of Far and Wide wonders whether we have reached a tipping point.
Given that these Conservatives simply can't help themselves, given that I truly believe we are now witnessing the unshackled beast roaming in it's natural habitat, there is some room for optimism that a true tipping point will be achieved.
And I so hope he's right eh? Because our country can't take much more.
And I just want to say that I am willing to work with Steve and his Liberals, and the NDP, and the Greens, or any other decent Canadians young and old, to defeat this ghastly regime.
For as I've also tried to illustrate, in my humble way, unless we stand up together and say enough is ENOUGH.
The darkness will only get darker.
And our nightmare will only get scarier...
