The Con Clowns and the Terrorist Menace
Well it was obvious that Stephen Harper and his Con regime would try to portray the video of that deranged Ottawa gunman, as proof that they were right all along.
Michael Zehaf-Bibeau wasn't a mentally ill drug addict, a religious fanatic, a lone wolf with delusions or confusions of grandeur.
He was a real Jihadi terrorist, or a real ‘mujahadeen.’
Michael Zehaf-Bibeau’s last video proves he was a terrorist “mujahedeen” seeking vengeance for Canada’s foreign military deployments, and justifies the need for new anti-terrorism legislation, the federal government said as the chilling recording was released to the public.
A stormtrooper in the service of the massive Jihadi Army, which has declared war on Canada, and is coming to behead us in our beds...
Or help Stephen Harper win another bloody majority.
In short: just another convenient Con propaganda tool.
Since his attack on Ottawa last Oct. 22, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau has become the chilling face of Canadian homegrown terrorism. A widely published photo showing him brandishing a rifle with a kaffiyeh over the lower half of his face and his long hair flowing wildly has helped cement the image.
But the RCMP's release Friday of what would become his martyrdom video when he was gunned down on Parliament Hill leaves the impression that Zehaf-Bibeau was not a particularly adept jihadist.
Even though Zehaf-Bibeau was more maniac than “mujahedeen.” His attack and his video couldn't have been more amateurish, or less ISIS.
None of the props that have come to be associated with such videos - black flags, Arabic script, weapons - are in the background. There is just a brick wall and the inside of his Toyota Corolla as Zehaf-Bibeau talks into the camera of a dashboard-mounted cellphone.
And what kind of hardened terrorist would end a rambling diatribe like that one with the words "thank you?"
That should be a tip off that something is not quite right. Or that he wasn't all there.
But then of course the Cons will use anyone to try to justify their totalitarian anti terrorism bill. Stephen Harper is trying to scare Canadians into voting for him.
And he needs to make security THE issue of the next election, because his government's economic record is such a disaster.
And how do we know that?
Because Oily Joe Oliver, the useless Con Finance Minister says so.
Canada's finance minister is saying publicly what political observers have long suspected: expect to hear the Conservatives talking a lot about national security in the upcoming election campaign.
Joe Oliver told the Manning Networking Conference Friday that the threat of terrorism at home and around the world has become a significant concern for Canadian voters — rivalling even the economy, a perennial favourite.
Who may not know what he is doing or saying...
Since polls show the economy is far more of an issue for most Canadians than security.
But does make it very clear why the Cons are in such a hurry to pass Bill C-51.
Finance Minister Joe Oliver suggested Friday that environmentalists and others opposed to pipelines or similar natural resource projects shouldn’t be using the concept of “social licence” to block major projects approved by federal authorities.
“There are those who want to oppose any form of resource development —that’s not in Canada’s interest,” Oliver, who was previously natural resources minister, told a conference of Conservatives put on by the Manning Centre for Building Democracy.
Because the bill would make "undermining" the economy a crime. And make it easier to go after those "environmental terrorists" and all their other enemies.
And of course, because they are desperate and their depraved leader has lost his moral compass, and is rapidly losing his marbles...
And the good news? The situation may be desperate, terrorism is a serious subject, and so is the economy.
But with every day that passes, Stephen Harper and his shabby gang are looking more and more like Con clowns...
At the mercy of events, making it up as they go along.
It's so obvious what they are trying to do, and so outrageous.
And by the time the next election arrives most Canadians will almost certainly have had enough of their ghastly act.
They will vote for change.
And they will give them the hook...
