Mike Duffy and Stephen Harper's Bully Regime
I've been fighting bullies since I was 12-years-old, so I know them when I see them.
And I also know that when you confront them and fight back, they usually turn into cowards and cut and run. Like Stephen Harper did today in Question Period, when he refused to answer most of the questions about the Senate scandal.
So what Mike Duffy had to say today about Harper and his PMO thugs, has for me the ring of truth.
Like you, I took a solemn oath to put the interests of Canadians ahead of all else. However the sad truth is, I allowed myself to be intimidated into doing what I knew in my heart was wrong, out of a fear of losing my job, and a misguided sense of loyalty.The PMO piled on the pressure.
Some honourable senators called me in P.E.I. One senator in particular left several particularly nasty and menacing messages: Do what the prime minister wants. Do it for the PM and for the good of the party. I continued to resist. Finally, the message from the PMO became: Do what we want or else.
Because Duffy may be an old windbag who sold his soul to the Devil. And there was enough hot air in that speech to lift the Senate off its moorings. But it's pretty clear from all we now know that this was a vast conspiracy, Stephen Harper must have known.
He is only scapegoating Duffy to cover-up his own crimes. And he IS the Devil, the most disgusting and dangerous political bully this country has ever seen.
So I rejoice to see him roasting in the hell of his own invention.
Senator Mike Duffy finally had his say Tuesday, dropping a political bombshell before the entire Senate, by saying Prime Minister Stephen Harper told him to repay his inappropriately claimed expense money.
Before a stunned audience of senators and reporters in the Senate gallery, Duffy said Harper told him, in the presence of his then chief of staff Nigel Wright, it was the perception of the "base" that was important, not what Duffy said about his own innocence. After Duffy said he didn't have the money, he related, "Nigel Wright said, 'Don't worry, I'll write the cheque.'"
And to see his carefully constructed house of cards come crashing down.
So, that’s it then: The Senate expense scandal is now a mortal threat to Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s career, and the future electoral prospects of his Conservative government.
Here’s where this leads: If Duffy’s story is true, and he can indeed prove it, then the entire senior Conservative power structure in Ottawa is on trial. And if, as Bayne has hinted, there’s evidence the prime minister knew of the Wright-Duffy deal before May 15 — when he has said repeatedly he did not know — then Harper himself will be irreparably damaged.
And after eight long years of fighting his bully regime, and of trying to defend the gentler, kinder, nobler values of the Canada I believe in.
After eight long years of watching Harper and his thugs make a mockery out of our democracy, hide or suppress the truth, lie all the time, muzzle good Canadians, and intimidate and smear their opponents.
After all those years of blogging, to try to cheer up other progressives, try to make them laugh in the darkness.
In my own fool way...
So as to encourage them never to give up, and to fight the Con bullies even harder.
After all those nightmare years, I've got to tell you something eh?
I'm feeling REALLY good tonight. Woohoo !!!!!!!!!!
Because I'm full of hope that this is finally the beginning of the end of Stephen Harper and his bestial Con regime.
And I can't think of a better way for them to go, than wallowing in their own filth, drowning in their lies. And running from the truth like cowards.
Yup. It's dark out there and getting darker, but better days are coming.
The monstrous Cons will be defeated.
And the bully will be BEATEN...
