The Con Klown Tour and the True Horror of Harperland
Oh no. Not more humiliation. Can you believe it? Stephen Harper's Great Escape Tour is on its way to Kuala Lumpur.
And I'm still waiting to hear from the CTV reporter who dared asked Harper a question. And who is no doubt now travelling in the baggage compartment.
But already I can see that the Con Klown Tour has run into a major obstacle: the President of China.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper could not have picked a less auspicious time to make his first visit to Malaysia. Harper’s three day stop in Kuala Lumpur, which begins Friday, is smack dab in the middle of the three-day maiden visit to Malaysia of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
So he'll be lucky if anybody even notices he's there.
Alas, as far as I can tell, not one Canadian flag has yet made an appearance in the streets of the capital. Nor has the foreign minister or the local media had anything to say yet about Harper’s impending arrival.
And while the Malaysians will be busy talking business with the Chinese, Great Economist Leader will be talking about...um...human smuggling?
Helping Malaysia fight back against human smugglers in its waters will be top of mind for Prime Minister Stephen Harper when he lands in Kuala Lumpur Friday.
And how we can help the Malaysians when we can't even patrol our own waters?
Oh boy. Talk about a make work project. Although I suppose it does make sense eh? He gets to pose as a refugee buster to please his rabid racist base. While he recruits foreign workers to steal their jobs.
Before heading off to Bali to pose as an economist...
While back in Canada a former high ranking civil servant all but calls him a monster.
A former high-ranking public servant in Ottawa is ripping into the Conservative government’s tough-on-crime policies, saying they reflect a “deep, visceral nastiness” and actually “do nothing to reduce or address crime.”
For his failed crime policies, and his kinky desire to punish people.
Campbell said there’s an international principle that people go to prison as punishment, but the Harper government has taken the view that people should go to prison for punishment.
That’s been reflected, she said, in the stripping away of privileges, such as access to weightlifting equipment, and reducing how much money inmates can earn. She said she’s even heard suggestions to feed the inmates less.
I mean can you believe that?
Think about it. He's terrorizing civil servants, he's muzzling scientists, he's stealing pensions from old people, he's kicking thousands of people off E.I., he's sending more and more young Canadians to jail for the "crime" of smoking marijuana. And now he's planning to STARVE them?
Gawd. Is that one sick puppy or what?
Oh boy. You know for years I've been trying to portray the true horror of Harperland. But I can never quite manage it eh?
Despite my best...or my worst efforts...
Because it's always worse than I can imagine. And I'd have to put on a rubber suit to be as kinky as Stephen Harper.
And now the final blow. Guillermo del Toro of all people has beaten me to it !!!!
Because this may be a promo for the Simpsons.
But it IS Harperland....
OMG. Wasn't that horrible? Did you see Jason Kenney chasing Bart, along with the Mummy and Frankenstein? Or was that Joe Oliver?
But seriously....I still think we can do better eh? And trust me we will.
So all I'll say for now is please, please, let there be JUSTICE.
May the Cons be defeated or arrested.
May the monster get what he DESERVES...
