Stephen Harper and his Monstrous McCarthyite Cons
When we last left Stephen Harper yesterday afternoon, he was in his Terror Command Bunker, also known as the Fear Centre, trying to block out the sights and the sounds of yesterday's massive Day of Action.
And no doubt shocked by the sight of all those demonstrators, all those Stop Harper signs.
And of course, his failure to scare them into submission, or muzzle them, like he has so many other decent Canadians.
Still, you might think he would tell his grotesque Con committee members, who are "studying" the bill, to back off a bit. And listen to the experts instead of treating them like terrorists.
But if you did think that, you'd be wrong eh?
Because they are the McCarthyite spawn of their depraved leader, and they're not sorry.
Conservative MPs ignored opposition demands Friday to apologize to some of Canada’s leading environmentalists, civil liberty advocates and Muslims for remarks that appeared to insinuate critics were national security threats because they spoke out against the government’s security legislation.
They will turn the hearings into a star chamber worthy of a fascist thug regime...
Next to drop the gloves was Conservative MP LaVar Payne. Addressing Joanne Kerr, executive-director of Greenpeace Canada, on the bill’s measures for greater sharing of Canadians’ personal information between government departments, he said: “The purpose of the act is sharing for national security threats, so it makes me wonder if your organization is a national security threat?
Payne’s remarks ran down the committee’s allotted question-and-response time, leaving Kerr no opportunity to respond.
By ramming that dangerously flawed bill through Parliament for the sole purpose of satisfying their monstrous leader's need for total control...
Who has never been more disgusting. Or fallen so low. Which is saying something considering the long list of his hoggish depravities.
But the good news is that so brutish and dumb and desperate are Harper and his Cons, that they don't realize that their bestial behaviour tells us all we need to know about their ghastly bill, and why it needs to be scrapped
And ordinary Canadians are getting the message, like these Toronto Star readers.
Bill C-51 is forcefully touted as protecting Canadians against terrorism. It exploits amorphous fear in the same way that occurred in the United States after 9/11 where the Bush government introduced sweeping laws restricting civil liberties under the guise of protecting the United States from attack. Ironically, the more defensive we become, the less freedom we actually have.

Fanatics seem to be created according to some sort of formula for each is a master in the politics of division; separating the world into ‘us’ and ‘them’, and casting their enemies as irrational, cold blooded killers bent on attacking ‘our’ freedoms and beliefs.
What a pity that so many Canadians, unnerved by even the remotest possibility of ‘terrorism’, cannot discern the far greater danger posed by the unprincipled zealot who stands in our own Parliament; for to disarm him, we need only deny him our support at the ballot box.

And it's not just progressives complaining about Harper's politics of fear, so are some conservatives like this blogger at the Blogging Tories.
Increasingly we are being intimidated and not by terrorists. It is our own government stoking the fires of fear. If we are to really live the bold words we speak and remain the true north strong and free then we cannot allow a desperate political party or a government to compromise our freedom by making us afraid to live our lives.
That is anything but Canada Strong. It is instead, allowing ourselves to be turned into trembling sheep manipulated by political cowards and bullies.
Who couldn't be more eloquent, and more courageous. Or more encouraging.
Because what all of this tells me is that our tin pot dictator has underestimated the opposition to his bill.
Take a bow everybody...
Underestimated the intelligence and courage of Canadians. And that while he may be dividing some of them, he is also bringing others together.
And what's even worse for him, is that his totally unnecessary bill could very well come to symbolize all that's wrong with his ghastly government, and why it so urgently needs to be defeated.
How ironic eh?
It will not make him look like a Great Strong Leader.
It will make him look like a dangerous fascist. Or a maniac.
And it will help bury him...
