The Con Regime and the Whale Songs of Resistance
When I was a boy I sometimes used to dream about running away to sea.
So the sight of that old sugar boat today, made me dream for a moment of sailing to some place far from Harperland.
Because this tortured country is getting crazier by the day.
And so is the monster who would destroy it.
The other day in an article on Stephen Harper's adventures in Ukraine, Murray Dobbin wondered whether he was becoming America's useful idiot.
Stephen Harper's acutely embarrassing behaviour regarding the crisis in Ukraine -- demonizing Vladimir Putin and upping the rhetoric -- must be welcomed in the U.S. which created the crisis in the first place and apparently believes it still has something to gain by isolating Russia.
But it is not clear that Harper even realizes -- or cares -- what the larger game is. And that game may include a Russia-driven shift in global currency allegiance that could devastate the economies of the U.S. and Canada.
The hollow bunny warrior in pursuit of the ethnic vote...
Or the desperate leader slowly losing his mind.
It is difficult to know what is going on in the fevered imagination of the prime minister but this time one has to really wonder if he has become genuinely unhinged -- always a possibility with someone both paranoid and narcissistic.
And who knows eh? Because madness does run in his family.
But what can be said with certainty, is that as he becomes more desperate, he is becoming even more RUTHLESS...
And is now not prepared to let ANYTHING stand in the way of his depraved desire for total domination.
He is moving ahead with his plan to suppress the vote, and make it easier to steal the next election.
He's muzzled scientists, closed down libraries, burnt books. The truth is strangled, the Big Lie rules.
He will not let anything thwart his oily dreams of turning Canada into a sinister petro state.
So nobody is safe.
Not even humpback whales.
The Canadian government is downgrading the protection of humpback whales off the coast of B.C. under the Species at Risk Act. The move is being made as the government readies for a decision on the approval of the Northern Gateway pipeline, which would feed oil onto a tanker shipping route that overlaps with what environmental groups describe as "critical habitat" for the whale.
Because the evil that oozes out of his diseased mind burns like acid, corrupts anything it touches, and he is capable of ANYTHING.
And it all made me wonder what those gentle giants might tell us if we could understand their language, or their songs.
So I made this little video to try to imagine what that might be...
But then you knew what those beautiful giants might say. If you've been keeping me company on my journey to freedom you know how I feel. And I'm sure you know what we must do.
Work harder than ever to defeat that ghastly monster.
Drive him and his Cons from power by whatever legal means necessary.
Before they destroy everything good and beautiful.
Before they destroy this country...
