The Harper Regime and the Terrorist Game
Even by the low standards of Peter Dumbo MacKay, I thought it was bizarre when he claimed that a plot to commit a mass slaughter in Halifax was not linked to terrorism.
"What I can tell you is that this appeared to be a group of murderous misfits that were coming here or were living here and prepared to wreak havoc and mayhem on our community," he asserted at a news conference.
"The attack does not appear to have been culturally motivated, therefore not linked to terrorism," he said.
Especially since the Criminal Code states that terrorism is “politically, religiously or ideologically-motivated,” and makes no mention of cultural motivations.
But at least now I have a better idea go what that hapless Con stooge was trying to say:
It's not terrorism if it isn't the Muslims, it's just the neo-nazis.
The pair charged with conspiracy to commit murder by plotting an attack in a Halifax shopping mall on Valentine’s Day appear to support white supremacy and Adolf Hitler — and if found to have been motivated by their ideological beliefs — it would mean that by definition, they tried to commit a terrorist attack.
And what's equally disturbing is the way the RCMP was once again quick to back up MacKay's claim.
“This group of individuals we would not define as a terrorist group,” said RCMP Asst. Commissioner Brian Brennan. “Their friendship is not based on culture or ideology. They were four individuals who formed a friendship and decided to plan and commit a heinous crime.”
When they were also so quick to declare that the deranged gunman in Ottawa was "ideologically motivated" on the basis of a single video he made.
A video the RCMP Commissioner won't show us, so we can judge for ourselves whether he was a real terrorist or a maniac.
And just as much of a loser as those freaks in Halifax.
But of course that's what Stephen Harper would command his flunkies to do, because for him it's just a game. He wants to focus the attention of Canadians on the Great Terrorist/Muslim/Niqab Menace.
And use it to stir up xenophobia and create yet another wedge issue to try snatch another bloody majority.
While turning us into a surveillance state, and acting like a fascist.
Former CSIS officer Francois Lavigne is alarmed by the Conservative government’s new anti-terror bill. He believes the measures proposed in C-51 are unnecessary, a threat to the rights of Canadians and that the prime minister is using fascist techniques to push the bill.
“Some of these tactics are taken right out of the fascist playbook,” he said. “Create an enemy that is hard to identify. Make it an enemy that is nebulous and seems to be able to do things that nobody else can. Don’t define the enemy. Just identify. Generate fear around that enemy, Then send out the message that the only people who can deal with this enemy are us.”
But then we knew that eh?
We know to what dark place Stephen Harper would take us, and we know what we must do to make our country safer.
Defeat the foul Con regime, and give its grubby little dictator the hook.
Before his madness threatens us further...
