Why the Duffy Trial is Also the Trial of the Harper Regime
I wouldn't be surprised if Stephen Harper spends the next two months in the usual place he runs to, and the same position he assumes, whenever he feels threatened.
Whether it's by the one-man terrorist army who stormed Parliament, or by the trial of his soiled superstar senator Mike Duffy.
In fact, I'll even go so far to say, that I wouldn't be surprised if on this occasion, Great Closet Leader is already soiling himself. And with good reason.
Because as Lawrence Martin points out, it's not just Duffy who is on trial, so is the filthy Con regime.
It’s not the fate of Mr. Duffy that has created enormous interest in this trial. It’s the fate of the government. It is the morality, the integrity of the Conservative Party hierarchy, that is on trial.
Most of the accusations facing Mr. Duffy himself involve alleged little embezzlements relating to expense accounts. But abuse of the public trust by way of an alleged coverup operation involving top officials in the Prime Minister’s Office, as Mr. Duffy’s team claim, is much more serious.
And the trial can only remind Canadians of the sordid record of that regime, and the way its morally depraved leader has abused power, violated our values, and made a mockery out of our democracy...
It may be seen as a microcosm of the serial breaches of the public trust: the undercover dirty tricks, the smear campaigns against opponents, the altering of official documents, the democracy-shredding omnibus bills.
If you wanted to go into detail, you could fill an entire page of news print with the ethical transgressions of this government that have undermined the democratic process.
And since politics is perception that can do them great damage.
For who can forget how the Cons have turned this country into a pool of bubbling excrement? Or how they turned the hearings into their dangerous anti-terrorism bill into a complete farce?
A recent example is Bill C-51, the new and widely condemned security legislation that interferes with Canadians’ privacy. What did the Conservatives do? They voted to block Canada’s privacy commissioner from testifying at committee hearings on the bill. It’s a small example of how petty and pathetically partisan they are.
Or a Star Chamber...
Or who can forget the way Natural Resources Minister Greg Rickford recently taunted his opponents in the House of Commons.
By flicking his tongue in and out in a disgusting manner.
Worthy of Great Gila Leader himself...
Who has debased this country beyond recognition.
With the help of his little monsters in the PMO...
Who will now at last be exposed to the light of day, so Canadians can see how ugly they are, and watch them squirm like maggots in the witness box.
As they try to explain why they fiddled with the facts in what looks like an obvious attempt to sanitize or cover-up the truth.
Also, let's not forget that Dean Del Mastro will also be testifying at the Duffy trial.
Hopefully BEFORE he's sentenced for election fraud...
Which can only remind even more Canadians of Harper's sordid record, and his appalling judgement.
And of course let's not forget that Del Mastro will be joined in the witness box, by the grotesque Con clown Ezra Levant, who was apparently paid by Duffy to write speeches.
You know, the so-called Rebel Commander of the so-called Rebel Media.
Who also tells us all we need to know about those scummy Cons.
And will hopefully help turn the trial into an absolute freak show, and help bring them ALL down...
While we look on, munch on popcorn, and smear THEM beyond recognition.
While hammering home the essential point: if the Cons and their depraved leader weren't such scumbags, this scandal never would have happened.
Golly. Won't that be fun?
Let's see how low the Cons can go.
Dive Mikey DIVE....
