Stephen Harper's Insane and Deeply Disturbing Comeback Plan
In my last post I told you how Stephen Harper's obsession with destroying Justin Trudeau is slowly driving him over the deep end.
Making him believe that only by destroying Justin can he make himself popular again.
But he does have a Plan B.
And as Michael Harris reports, it's just as CRAZY.
There’s an elephant in the room: Stephen Harper’s record in office. He needs to make it disappear. He doesn’t have much time.
The political leader who endorses disrupting opponents’ political meetings but shuns reasoned debate, who won’t talk to the premiers but loved barbecues in Rob Ford’s backyard, and who puts out his own newscast but treats real journalists like Ebola carriers, is embarked on a course to make people forget the basic fact of every election — that it’s always about the government’s record.
He needs to hide his record, for obvious reasons. And rather than talk about that he would rather talk about other things, like beheadings.
There are a lot of taboo topics the PM would just as soon we forget about. Stephen Harper would rather talk about beheadings than the dead room he has made of public discourse in Canada — and his dismal record after eight years in power.
Just not the ones carried out by his friends, and fellow oil pimps, the Saudis...
Since 1985, the government of Saudi Arabia, to whom Canada sells military equipment, has executed 2,000 people — most by beheading. Many of those executed were women — and lot of those women were beheaded for witchcraft or adultery, according to The Guardian.
And in pursuit of Justin Trudeau and another majority he is apparently willing to say or do ANYTHING.
But what does Steve want to talk about most? Why, the other guys, of course, and why they’re not fit to run the country. Brian Mulroney called Tom Mulcair the best leader of the Opposition since Diefenbaker. Harper says he’s not fit to run the country because … well, because he doesn’t excel in the corporate ass-kissing department. No lip-liner for Tom.
And Justin? Justin is a callow little defiler of young brides and his father was a slut — or at least that was the gist of Ezra Levant’s recent unhinged rant on the person the polls keep saying will be Canada’s next prime minister. As Scott Feschuk cleverly put it on Twitter, this was Ezra’s “magnus Trudeau-pus … the masterpiece Ezra has been working toward all his life: Trudeau steals a kiss.”
And one really has to wonder where that depraved leader is taking us.
If the PM gets his way, there won’t be room in the gutter by the time a titillated, misinformed and seething country makes its way to the polls like a British soccer mob after the home side loses and the pubs are closed. It’s how you make elephants disappear, don’t you know?
And the good news?
if that's Plan B he better start working on Plan C as soon as he can eh?
Because that one won't work.
He will not escape his record.
Or his many scandals.
His crass desperation will only make him look uglier. As he crawls through the gutter...
And while I'm not sure how exactly you make an elephant disappear.
What I do know is that when those seething Canadians turn up at the polls.
They will disappear HIM...
