Stephen Harper and the Bromance From Hell
When I saw this picture published tonight by the Con Ministry of Propaganda and Disinformation, I have to admit I was conflicted eh?
On the one hand I despise both Stephen Harper and Benjamin Netanyahu for being vicious Cons and demagogues, who would lead their countries to disaster, and the world to war.
But on the other hand I can't deny that any man who would praise Harper for his "moral leadership," must be madly in love with Great Leader.
“This world is often cynical and hypocritic, and you have shown great moral leadership,” Mr. Netanyahu said, lauding him for speaking out against terrorism and anti-semitism, and for Israel’s security. “In all this, and so many other things, you’ve shown courage, clarity, and conviction. And in standing up for the truth, your voice, Stephen, has been an indispensable one.
And who am I to stand in the way of such a steamy bromance?
If Hollywood hadn’t already coined a bromance called I Love You, Man, they could have made a movie about the prettiest love story in international politics — namely, the one between Benjamin Netanyahu and Stephen Harper.
Although I do have some questions for Great Besotted Leader. Couldn't he and Benny have just rented a hotel room somewhere? Did he REALLY need to bring along 21 rabbis, and all those other gushing admirers, on this bloated junket?
The "accompanying party" of private citizens on the Israel portion of this trip numbers 208, according to a list released by the Prime Minister's Office. It included 21 rabbis, representatives of about 20 Jewish community groups and a half-dozen evangelical Christian organizations, as well as a number business people, including a handful of lobbyists, the presidents of Air Canada and Bell Helicopter Canada and prominent Jewish business leaders like David Asper and David Azrieli. Former Conservative cabinet minister Stockwell Day, a staunch pro-Israel advocate, is also in the delegation.
Did he really need to stick Canadian taxpayers with the tab for this outrageous partisan extravaganza? Do him and his rabid religious base really think that money grows on burning bushes?
Towards what desert delusion is he leading his massive flock?
And do those leaders of the Jewish community think they are doing their community a favour by clinging to Great Leader's robes like groupies? When most Canadians, are heading in the opposite direction.
And Stephen Harper is the most hated Prime Minister this country has ever known.
Because if they do, I would tell them what I would tell the people in Israel.
Stephen Harper is NOT their real friend. Like Netanyahu he is an enemy of peace, and can lead them only to disaster.
This is NOT a love story decent Canadians could enjoy...
And those who support Harper so blindly, or so grubbily, could never be OUR real friends. And will find themselves on the wrong side of history.
Oh well. The good news is that this bloated taxpayer funded junket will only make Canadians hate the Con regime even more than they already do. If that's possible.
We'll get to visit the Stephen Harper Bird Sanctuary, which should be hilarious.
And by the time this expensive farce is over, Stephen Harper may come to believe that he simply cannot live without Benny. That Canadians don't deserve him.
And decide to wait for his Messiah.
In the only country that still loves him...
But one thing is for sure eh? After this ghastly junket, this latest embarrassment.
This bromance from hell.
The day we defeat him and his shabby stooge regime.
Can't come soon enough..
