The Cons and the War on Christmas
Oh my Ding Dong. Deck the gazebo with boughs of holly.
Or steaming mounds of horse shit.
Tony Clement, the King of Muskoka and the Minister of Misery, wants us all to know something REALLY important.
He's no grinch, and the Cons don't hate Christmas.
With Hanukkah underway and just over two weeks to go until Christmas, Clement launched a pre-emptive strike against "those who would like to snuff out the holiday spirit in the name of political correctness or expediency." "Our Government will not allow the Christmas spirit to be grinched," said Clement in a press release issued on the Treasury Board web site on Sunday.
Because he loves his employees eh? He wants them to celebrate in their little cubicles, happy and muzzled. Even as he boasts about how many of them he fired.
But then Clement is only honouring an annual Con tradition. Pandering to their rabid teabagger base, who along with all their other hallucinations believe that the ungodly have declared War on Christmas.
For who could forget the ghastly spectacle of Diane Finley? Rising in the House of Commons to declare that "We like Christmas."
As if others didn't.
As if she wasn't just another Con Minister of Mass Misery...
Squeezing the joy of Christmas out of the unemployed, making it harder to get benefits, turning us into a low-wage economy, where the rich get richer, and the poor can eat a can of Diane Finley beans.
"Although this is of course a fictional marketing effort, the precarious situation of unemployed workers in Atlantic Canada, as in the rest of the country, is unfortunately real. Many of these people won't have much more than beans to feed their children this winter due to the Conservative cuts to the Employment Insurance program..."
Golly. If she's the Spirit of Christmas the Grinch is Gandhi.
And finally, who can forget that the Cons are just taking their cues from the rabid Christianists and RepubliCons in the United States like Bill O'Reilly?
Bill O’Reilly agreed with a Fox News guest Thursday night that it's not just "grouchy misanthropic heathen atheists" who hate Christmas, but those who promote gay rights and a woman's right to choose.
Because all things considered, from bigots to Jesus...
The Cons are more American than Canadian.
And what more can you say eh?
Except Happy Hannukah everybody !! Santa I love you !! Please bring me an I-Pad !!!!!
Or even better, a REAL Canadian government !!!
Down with the Cons who wouldn't recognize the true meaning of Christmas if it jumped up and bit them.
Down with the grinch who stole our country...
