They flew into Ottawa this weekend like a swarm of bats from some dark netherworld.
Hundreds of Cons, religious fanatics, sinister would be Republican operatives, climate change deniers, right-wing kooks like Ron Paul.
All there to try to figure out how to make Canada conservative FOREVER.
All there at the invitation of the Con Godfather himself Preston "Parson" Manning, who did beseech his batty flock to mind their tongues.
The Achilles heel of the modern-day conservative movement is people who end up discrediting it when they speak their mind, suggested Preston Manning, the founder of the Reform party, which gave today’s Conservative government its start.
Or keep their hidden agenda to themselves, until the
The Day of Tar and Judgement he has begged his Godzilla to inflict on Canada for its liberal sins, and its heathen ways. The day he is so sure is coming, he can TASTE it.
Like his faithful disciple Jason Kenney.
Immigration Minister Jason Kenney, swiping at the “politically correct views of a narrow class of lawyers, academics, and journalists,” and NDP and Liberals, urged Conservatives on Friday to stick to their guns with the kind of crime, refugee, and economic policies that won over swaths of new Canadians in the 2011 federal election if they want to expand Conservative support more broadly to win the kind of election landslide Progressive Conservative leader John Diefenbaker did in the 1950s.
The greasy religious fanatic who would take men back to 1950s, women back to the 14th Century, persecute gay people. And turn Canada into a theocracy.
Oh boy. It would be laughable if it wasn't so horrible. For let's be absolutely clear. They may look and sound like Con klowns, but both Manning and Kenney are a mortal threat to the Canada we know and love.
Kenney is using his job as Immigration Minister to recruit religious conservatives all over the world, and bringing them to Canada as immigrants and refugees. So they can vote for the Cons, give them a permanent majority, and change this secular country beyond recognition.
And as for Parson Manning, he is also far more dangerous than he appears...
For his sinister Con Skool is training hundreds and hundreds of young operatives, like the pigs trained the dogs in Animal Farm. Those Republican-style fanatics are now the indispensable foot soldiers of the Con regime. The ones who run the War Room, and the PMO. The ones who will do ANYTHING to win.
And ever since he entered politics Parson Manning has been flogging the same outrageous sermon. Pretend you aren't right-wing extremists who want to kill government, until it's too late for Canadians to do anything about it.
Then kill it dead, suck the marrow out of its broken bones until the bloody gunk runs down your faces. Praise the Lord for making Canada safer for Big Oil. And show HIS enemies no mercy.
Because that's what this foul Con conclave was all about, and if more Canadians don't see the growing danger this country is in, we're all in real trouble.
The good news is that even the House of Manning's own polls show that the country is still too Canadian for these theocons to achieve their moment of Rapture.
Preserving the environment is considered more important than the expansion of our petroleum sector....Loyalty toward the Liberal party is surprisingly resilient.
And as I outlined in my last few posts, we have our own plans to send them to the Hell where they belong. But it would be fatal to underestimate them. Or believe that they will be easily swept away by the coming of a Progressive Messiah.
For they have the government, Big Oil, the MSM, think tanks, and more money and religious fanatics than you can count on their side. And as Manning pointed out in his speech today, they aren't just united, they are FAMILY.
From my perspective, and I hope yours, all of these people who self-identify as some kind of conservative are part of the conservative family. All have something to contribute and the support of all is required to win electoral majorities if our aim is to form governments that can act on conservative values rather than merely talk about them in opposition. Thus the fiscal brother cannot say to the progressive sister “We have no need of you in the family”. Nor can the libertarian uncle say to the social conservative aunt “There is no place for you at the family table” – if we want the family as a whole to be united and electorally successful.
Which makes me wonder again why those who would defeat that monstrous Con conspiracy are not united? And if those grubby alien Cons are family, why aren't WE?
But that's a story for another night eh? Tonight time is running out on me faster than usual. Just like it's running out for Canada, faster than most Canadians imagine. So I'll just say this:
If we don't make absolutely sure we defeat the Cons in the next election we will regret it FOREVER.
For it is a real conspiracy. What we can't see or don't know could kill this country.
There is a monstrous agenda.
And this is the face of EVIL...
