The Con Clowns and the Crisis in Ukraine
If the crisis in Ukraine wasn't so ominous, the sight of the Harper Cons mobilizing for war would be absolutely hilarious.
Stephen Harper sucking in his gut, puffing out his chest, inflating his propaganda balloon, talking tough to the fascist dwarf Vladimir Putin.
Ominous developments in Ukraine have prompted Prime Minister Stephen Harper to strongly condemn Russian military intervention in the country while urging President Vladimir Putin to withdraw his troops immediately.
John Baird going the extra mile to win the Ukrainian-Canadian vote...
Using a dangerous crisis to play cheap politics.
Cheap, shabby Tory politics. That’s the best that can be said about Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s cynical decision to show the Canadian flag in Ukraine this week by sending a nakedly partisan delegation that includes a Conservative cabinet minister, an unelected Tory senator and two Tory backbench MPs – but not a single representative of the opposition parties.
It’s appalling to see the Conservatives exploit Ukraine’s national struggle for their own narrow interest.
Standing up for democracy in the Ukraine while killing it at home.
Beating a tin drum for war. Today we take Canada, tomorrow we take Moscow.
Making it sound like the Cons are leading the charge to freedom...
When in fact, thanks to those ghastly Cons we don't have a shred of moral or diplomatic influence left in the world.
How could we? When we are stooges of the Israelis in the Middle East, servants of Big Oil everywhere else. We're turning our foreign aid program into an aid program for mining companies.
The federal government is providing added funding aimed at boosting transparency in the extractive sector, a sign Ottawa’s foreign aid efforts are becoming increasingly focused on the mining industry.
This Con hog is our most famous ambassador.
And the best we can hope for is that Harper and his shabby shameless posse of Con clowns don't make a bad situation worse.
Because it's more complicated than they would make it appear.
It's a crisis that could easily lead to a horrifying civil war, or a terrifying superpower confrontation.
A crisis where as if things weren't bad enough, the ranks of the good guys include some nasty neo-nazis.
Yahnybok and other party leaders have been accused of making numerous anti-Semitic and racist remarks. In 2004, Tyahnybok urged his party in a televised speech to fight “the Moscow-Jewish mafia ruling Ukraine.”
Another party official, Yuriy Mykhalchyshyn founded a think tank called the Joseph Goebbels Political Research Centre, which was named as a tribute to the notorious Nazi propaganda minister.
And the Cons are so dumb and incompetent, and so fixated on their crass political interests, they could end up jumping into bed with them.
Hey Baird !!!! Hey Johnny !!!! Stop blowing those guys in black !!!! They hate the Russians, Europe, and ISRAEL !!!!!
And then of course there's the fascist dwarf Putin. Who I thought was the big winner of the Sochi Games. At least judging by the enthusiastic way most of the world kissed his ass. And forgot his victims.
But who apparently still feels like a loser, is willing to risk EVERYTHING....
And that is what is so worrying about Putin’s latest moves. They show that he is clearly a desperate man, willing to make a clean break with Ukraine and Europe, risk an acceleration of Georgia’s membership in NATO—an event that he wants to avoid almost as much as losing Ukraine—cripple his own economy and suppress yet another indigenous population. All for little tangible gain.
It appears that Putin feels that he has nothing left to lose.
And in his present state of mind, and after a few drinks, is clearly capable of ANYTHING.
So the the last thing the world needs are the ghastly Cons wandering around Ukraine, talking trash, trying to stir things up or pour gasoline on the flames, just to score cheap political points back home.
Because once we were noble peacemakers, but now we're just shabby clowns.
Oh boy. We really do owe the people of the world an apology for having inflicted the Harper Cons upon them, and allowing them to threaten their future as well as our own.
But the best way to make it up to them is to fight the Con regime harder than we ever have before. In Parliament, in our communities, on the streets if necessary.
Defeat them, crush them, jail them if possible.
Before their crassness shames us further.
And his madness destroys us ALL...
