Stephen Harper Fear Campaign Gets Slammed by Canadians
Well as you know Stephen Harper has been busy trying to crank up the Fear Factor in his Great War on Terror.
By spreading terrorist propaganda on his Facebook site, to try to scare Canadians into voting for him. While he turns Canada into a police state with his dangerously flawed Bill C-51.
But unfortunately for him and his ghastly Cons, his crass performance is a little too obvious.
And it's getting some really bad reviews.
The messaging is clear — support us or terrorists are going to storm your local mall...The message here — vote for us, or old convicted killers are going to be stalking your neighbourhood.
His disgusting behaviour is being noticed.
Terrorists at the mall. Killers walking free. Scary old country, this Canada, eh? That’s just the way the Conservatives want it.
His fear campaign is being widely panned. So is his police state bill.
The government’s anti-terrorism bill provides excessive powers to federal agencies to monitor and profile ordinary Canadians as part of the war on terror, the Privacy Commissioner is arguing. “All Canadians – not only terrorism suspects – will be caught in this web,” Daniel Therrien said an an open-letter published in The Globe and Mail.
And even the right-wing commentator Tasha Kheirridin is accusing him of playing the terrorist's game.
Give terrorists the power to change our daily lives simply by making threats, and you’re giving in to terrorism. Face it — anything is a possible terrorist target. Our malls, our schools, our office buildings, our sporting arenas … anything could be attacked, at any moment. Vigilance — reporting suspicious activity, for example — is good, and should be encouraged. Paranoia — the kind of paralyzing fear that can shut society down — is exactly what we don’t want.
Canada needs to move ahead sensibly and rationally to combat terror. But our government shouldn’t terrorize us as well.
Because that's exactly what he's trying to do, terrorize his own people. Which much surely be the lowest thing Stephen Harper has ever done.
Even by his own low standards...
And for that alone he deserves to be removed from office.
But I thought Rick Mercer asked the best question, the one I want Harper to answer:
Why does he want us all to be cowards like him?
And should we, in the name of safety and security, be even too afraid to go to the TOILET?
Because ironically enough, that is where HE is going eh?
His dirty game has soiled what was left of his reputation.
The stench burns the nostrils
And his day is almost done...
