Quebec, the Con Media, and the Greek Obsession
It's funny eh? When I see pictures like this one I see people standing up for their rights, telling a corrupt government to take their fascist bill and shove it, or just joining others to demand a better world.
But most of the Con media only seem to see a mob, dangerous terrorists, and above all GREEKS !!!!
It's an absolute obsession. Diane Francis says Greece must go and the Quebec Students too !!!!! David Warren says Quebec is Greece because it is. And the REAL cause of the protests is the collapse of religious order !!!!!
Then of course there's Margaret Wente...
Making a fool out of herself. Again.
And for the icing on the cake, or the tzatziki sauce on the souvlaki, there was the TVO producer who wrote that Quebec is like Greece because they both worship Communist kitsch !!!!!
Gawd. Remind me never to watch that network again.
But seriously eh? Do those hysterical fools think that they are insulting us by calling us Greeks?
You know, these people...
The designated scapegoats of a corrupt capitalist system.
The ones who are suffering all kinds of deprivations and indignities.
When the Athens maternity hospital where Anna gave birth asked her to pay for the costs of her Caesarean section, she told them she did not have the 1,200 euros ($1,500) they wanted. They responded, she says, by threatening to keep hold of her baby until she paid the full amount.
The ones who are growing poorer and hungrier, while the capitalist hogs get fatter and fatter....
And are trying to make others pay for their greed, by ramming austerity down their throats. Like Stephen Harper is trying to do here by going after seasonal workers, seniors, the poor and the unemployed. And Jean Charest is trying to do in Quebec by going after the students.
So if those Cons think that they are insulting us by calling us Greeks they're wrong eh? Because at this time in human history we are ALL Greeks. And proud of it.
What's happening in Greece, what's happening in Quebec, what's happening in so many other places is just the beginning of the greatest struggle in human history.
And whatever our foul Con media says, we will not be intimidated.
We will defeat the Cons.
And we WILL change the world....
