The Senator, the Rope, and the Bestiality of the Cons
He has violated our Canadian values from the very moment he came to office. He is turning us into a crazed prison state. He says he doesn't want to re-open the death penalty debate. But he WOULD like to hang some Canadians.
Because he is a vengeful nerd. And he does like to see fear in the eyes of others.
So why should anyone be surprised that Stephen Harper would appoint a Senator like this one?
“Each assassin should have the right to a rope in his cell to make a decision about his or her life,” senator Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu told reporters ahead of a meeting of the Conservative caucus on Wednesday.
A "tough on crime" Senator who would break the law by encouraging suicide. In a country where suicide is a huge problem, not just in our jails, but also in our schools, and our native communities.
A Senator who would suggest that we shouldn't kill all murderers. Just the ones we don't like.
“I’m against the death penalty, but in horrible cases such as [serial killer Clifford] Olson, can we have a reflection on that issue?” said the senator who was appointed to the Upper Chamber by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in 2009.
In a country where the Con regime smears its opponents as "Enemies of the State." Puts prisons before pensions. And ideology before the lives of women.
“Can the Prime Minister explain his twisted reasoning with regard to maternal health in developing countries?” Françoise Boivin, an NDP MP from Quebec, asked during the daily Question Period at the House of Commons. Are Canadians to understand, asked Ms. Boivin, “that he is giving in to the pressure by backbenchers on the fanatic religious right who want to reopen the debate on abortion?”
A regime that endangers the lives of police officers and paramedics, by scrapping the long-gun registry, after perverting the process.
Celebrates its death by pretending to pump bullets into the ranks of the opposition...
And into the precious legacy of fourteen murdered women.
But still has the gall to call itself a "crime-fighting government." When they are the political thugs who are stealing our country. And THEY should be jailed for crimes against Canada and its values.
Oh boy. You know when the opposition finally gets its act together, and unites to confront the common enemy, maybe they could organize some big rallies on the same day right across the country.
There would be speeches, there would be music, NDPers, Liberals, Greens, and other progressives, would get a chance to get to know each other better, share their common values, rub shoulders, and who knows what other body parts eh?
And every one of those joyous rallies would end with a giant bonfire, until the night sky glowed red, like a maple leaf, from one end of the country to the other.
And the common message was impossible to miss:
Our Canada is not the Con's bestial Canada.
And we want it back...
