The Day Stephen Harper Got Punked
Golly. I see Stephen Harper FINALLY got a chance to show why some weird religious organization, named him the Statesman of the Year.
No. Not at this meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu, the creator of the "Bibi Bomb" as inspired by the Road Runner.
Because that was just man love.
Netanyahu praised Harper for his recent decision to close the Canadian embassy in Tehran. “I think what you did, severing ties with Iran, was not only an act of statesmanship but an act of moral clarity,” he told the prime minister.
He added to the assembled Canadian media: “He’s a great champion of freedom and a great friend of Israel.”
For I have to be honest eh? In all the years of watching Harper in action, when Benny was stroking him like a cat, I've NEVER seen him look so happy. And so...um... aroused. Which has got to be good for him, if not the world.
But no, his chance to show that he's a REAL statesman came in a ten-minute telephone conversation with this guy...
François "Lego" Legault, the leader of the right-wing, sometimes federalist, but always wacky CAQ party in Quebec.
Or to to be precise, the Fake Lego !!!!
Harper thought he was chatting with Quebec politician Francois Legault in a French-language conversation to be aired Monday. The prime minister congratulated the third-party leader for fighting the new Parti Quebecois government's plan to increase taxes on high income-earners while, at the same time, he cautioned against toppling the minority government too fast.
And I have to admit I'm STUNNED.
Although not as stunned as poor Ban-Ki Moon eh?
On Thursday, Audette and Sebastien Trudel announced that they had posed as the prime minister and managed to get the secretary general of the United Nations on the phone. They proudly recounted how Ban-Ki Moon was rushed out of an important meeting to speak to them and that he became confused when the fake "Harper" complained that he was too busy combing his hair with crazy glue
Because he's probably still in shock. But then I'm also lying on the ground....dying of LAUGHTER.
Because now I'm forced to digest that not only does Benny love him.
So does Pauline Marois...
Now that's a STATESMAN !!!!!
Golly. Who knew he would secretly prop up the PQ government? So he can can accuse the NDP of being in bed with the separatists. And pose as the Lord Protector of Canada.
Even as he sells us out to foreign interests, protects the interests of the rich, and is flogging our common history to the highest bidder.
Oh boy. Some things need to be said eh?
He was never a great statesman. Just a right-wing Dominionist puppet with delusions of grandeur, who shamed us in the eyes of the world.
And he was definitely the worst Prime Minister in Canadian history.
Until the Day of Deliverance.
Play it again John Roby...
