Stephen Harper and the Madness of the Con Regime
In his fragile mental state it must have seemed like a natural transition. The beast within him must have howled.
For three days he'd play Mother Theresa or Mother Harper at the Maternal Health Summit.
The friend of cute starving children, and the butcher of women who need a safe abortion.
But last night he'd be Margaret Thatcher !!!
Prime Minister Stephen Harper launched into a full-throated attack on the evils of communism at a fundraiser on Friday for a monument to its victims.
In language reminiscent of the height of the Cold War, Harper lambasted communism and oppressive or even murderous ideologies. "Evil comes in many forms and seems to reinvent itself time and again," he said.
And all I could think of was, yes, he has been trying to reinvent himself a lot recently. But where's the monument to the victims of fascism, or Harperism?
And of course, who will save us from this dangerous maniac and his monstrous government?
When historians look back on Stephen Harper’s (first?) decade in power, what will they make of the trail of institutional wreckage that his government is leaving in its wake? Will they conclude that a mastermind determined to change the course of the ship of state at all costs was in charge, or just a bunch of drunken sailors?
The Conservatives came to power in 2006 as institutional reformers. But three mandates later, one would look in vain for a method to the self-destructive madness that they are presiding over.
For no leader foreign or domestic, no swaggering tyrant, no tin-pot dictator, has done more damage to this country and its values than he has.
And the only consolation is that more and more Canadians are now calling his behaviour what is it is: MADNESS.
And are finally recognizing that the depraved emperor has no clothes...
Or recognizing what he no longer can: that by seeking to destroy Canada, he is only destroying HIMSELF.
A Forum Research survey revealed this week that the PMO has become one of Canada’s least trusted political institutions, almost on par with the maligned Senate. It may not yet have dawned on its occupants that what Canadians think of the PMO is usually not divorced from their opinion of the leader who runs it.
And what good timing.
Just in time for the start of Michael Sona's robocall trial on Monday, that can only do Harper and the PMO even more damage.
The names of the senior Conservatives he suspects were involved in the robocall affair will come out at the trial, he suggests.
Just in time for the next election campaign.
And right now, just in time for the weekend !!!!
You know I have to admit that for a while this winter, I wondered whether I might have to leave this country I love so much. Because I can't live without the wind of freedom in my face.
But now I'm feeling a lot better eh?
My sails are filled with hope again. My spirit is soaring like a bird.
Because I know the nightmare is almost over. The madman is destroying himself.
And better days are coming...
