Stephen Harper and the Screaming Voices
It was one of the weirdest most surrealistic days in the long and dark history of Harperland.
A day when all the voices in Stephen Harper's head seemed to be screaming at the same time.
WAR !!!! PEACE !!!! EARLY ELECTION !!!!
And in the House of Commons madness ruled.
For there was Tom Mulcair demanding to know why Stephen Harper had told the Wall Street Journal the U.S. had asked Canada to contribute more to the Great War on ISIS.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper says Canada is considering a U.S. request for further military contribution in the fight against ISIS in Iraq.
"The United States has just recently, in the last couple days, has asked for some additional contribution and we'll — we're weighing our response to that."
Instead of first telling Parliament.
Only to have the Con Defence Minister Rob Nicholson confirm the story, but offer no apology or explanation...
Before telling Mulcair if he wanted to know more about Stephen Harper's plans for our troops in Iraq, he should watch Great Leader's speech to the United Nations later that day.
Can you believe that eh? That's how low we've fallen.
And so soon after this...
But then this ghastly Con show got even weirder, when it turned out the Americans hadn't approached the U.S., Harper had approached THEM.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper sought details from the U.S. on how Canada could play a more muscular role in Syria and Iraq, an offer that led to the American letter for military assistance, according to U.S. and Canadian officials.
Pentagon officials confirmed to the Star Thursday the Canadians were willing partners who approached them.
Because he does want to go to war so he can pose as a Great Warrior Leader...
The strong leader who would protect us from those who would behead us in our beds.
And their friends Justin Trudeau and Tom Mulcair.
But he clearly doesn't want us to know how much he wants it.
Because then came the most bizarre twist of the day. When Stephen Harper addressed the United Nations general assembly, and despite what Nicholson had told Mulcair, he never mentioned Iraq.
For by then one of Harper's other voices had taken over. He wasn't Great Warrior Leader anymore.
He was Great Mother Leader.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has told the United Nations General Assembly that saving the lives of the world's most vulnerable mothers and their children is not only a global priority, but an issue "closest to his heart."
And that's when after practically falling off the couch laughing, I started hearing voices in my head eh?
Screaming WAR !!!! PEACE !!!! EARLY ELECTION !!!!
Because it should be clear by now that everything the Con regime does is aimed at winning votes back home, and is more image than reality.
He's leading us stealthily to war, while posing as a kinder gentler leader. He's relentlessly pursuing the ethnic vote. He's announced that the deficit will be conquered sooner than expected.
So he can bribe voters with tax cuts.
He's spending tens of millions monitoring the media.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government defended Thursday in the House of Commons the tens of millions of dollars it’s spending on media monitoring when there are more than 3,300 communications staff working in government.
To fine tune his message, and sniff for wedge issues. Or an excuse to call an election.
And if he can go early he will to avoid this nightmare...
Of course I realize that if I'm wrong I'll be compared to the boy who cried wolf.
But the way I see it better safe than sorry eh?
The wolf is in full campaign mode.
And no beast is more dangerous than one in sheep's clothing...
