Jason Kenney and the Monstrous Cons
I made this little Photoshop graphic a few years ago, but I see I was completely right to call Jason Kenney a freak.
For only a freak would run a petition on his website inviting people to thank him for being Jason Kenney.
Canadians who want to sign a petition showing their support for Immigration Minister Jason Kenney’s decision to reduce medical benefits for refugees can do so online — on Jason Kenney’s own website.
And only a Con could be so EVIL.
“We don’t think that smuggled migrants and bogus asylum claimants should be getting better health care benefits than Canadian seniors and taxpayers,” the petition says.
For let's face it eh? Kenney's plan to deny health benefits to refugees is a monstrous act of inhumanity, that offends the values of this country.
But the way he is trying to appeal to the worst instincts of some Canadians, by making it sound like refugees are cheating them out of something, is an absolute abomination. A brutish act of xenophobia that should disgust every decent person.
But of course it won't disgust Stephen Harper and his Con regime. Because it's their modus operandi.
It starts by denigrating the program and the program's beneficiaries, and telling Canadians that they have been played for fools by the beneficiaries. Once that message has been drilled home, and the government judges that the moment is right and Canadians' attitudes changed, it proceeds to get rid of the program.
First they smear and debase the precious things of this country, and then they destroy them. Even though the money involved is so little, and the number of refugees so small.
From Kenney's zeal to reform Canada's refugee program, no one would guess that refugee-acceptance rates are at their lowest in the history of the Immigration and Refugee Board, at 38 per cent in 2010 and 2011...In recent years, the centre has found, the acceptance rate has been stable at between 40 and 45 per cent of the roughly 25,000 claims made every year. At that rate, a total of 11,250 people are accepted every year, including 2011.
For a country so big, now called Harperland, and growing smaller and meaner by the day.
Oh boy. All I can say is thank goodness for these doctors.
And my kind of Canadians.
Michel Foucault wrote that ‘the the primary obligation of the physician is political. The struggle against disease begins with a war against bad policy. Man will be totally cured only if he is first liberated.” For those seeking freedom and security, we can only strive for Canada to deliver on that hope.
Who are standing up for our precious values. The kind of values that make us decent and human. And fighting the loathsome values of Stephen Harper's foul regime, that would turn Canadians into beasts and bullies, and our society into a JUNGLE.
Oh please Great Polar Bear God of the Great White North, show us the way to victory.
Deliver us from the evil freak Jason Kenney...
Deliver us from those monstrous Cons...
