Stephen Harper and the Fake War on Sexual Offenders
From the moment Stephen Harper and his Con zombies came to power they have been loudly proclaiming, or moaning and wailing, that only they can protect Canadian children.
And that anybody who doesn't agree with them must be a sexual predator.
But like so many other things the Con regime does, it is all posturing.
They really are zombies.
And their dangerous incompetence knows no limits.
The federal government is cutting funds for a program designed to prevent the most dangerous, high-risk sex offenders from repeating their crimes, just as its own five-year study has found the program dramatically improves public safety and saves money.
It makes no sense. It's brutishly shortsighted. It's CRAZY.
Susan Love, who runs the program in Ottawa, is baffled by the decision to cut funds just as a study shows it to be successful and cost-effective. "It's crazy, actually. It's like the left hand isn’t talking to the right hand," she told CBC News. "It's like this five-year study that was just done was irrelevant. Why invest the time and the money?"
But then it is typical of the way the Cons operate. If they can find an issue where they can pose as our protectors AND smear their opponents.
They're all for it...
Until a better one comes along...
For they will use fear as a political weapon.
They really are dangerous zombies.
And we can't get rid of them soon enough...
