Omar Khadr: The Supreme Court Gives Stephen Harper Another Slap in the Face
It's the third time the Supreme Court of Canada has been asked to rule on the case of Omar Khadr.
Twice before it has ruled in his favour, and today it did so again.
And the way it did couldn't have been more of a slap in the face, or a kick in the head, to the Con regime and its depraved leader.
The Supreme Court of Canada dealt a blow to the federal government Thursday in a case involving Omar Khadr, the former teenage al-Qaeda member freed on bail last week in Alberta. It said Mr. Khadr should be treated as if he were sentenced as a juvenile. The federal government had argued that he deserved to be treated more severely, as an adult.
For instead of taking weeks to reach its decision, as it usually does with most decisions, it took only MINUTES.
The ruling is unusual in that it was delivered from the bench shortly after the court heard arguments from the federal government and Mr. Khadr’s lawyers. Usually, the court considers its rulings for several weeks before releasing a decision. The promptness suggests that the court found the legal principles too obvious to require any more time to think about.
And somewhere in his kinky dungeon Stephen Harper, who loves to inflict pain on others, must be screaming in pain himself....
Because this case has exposed him as a depraved sadist.
And from the moment Canadians finally got a chance to see the real Omar Khadr, and saw that he was not as Harper had claimed, a monster...
It has started to do real damage to him and his filthy regime.
By making many Canadians wonder who is the REAL monster? And whether a man like Harper can be trusted with ANYTHING.
So as I predicted the other day, after all his years of being jailed and tortured, Omar Khadr may actually help bring down the Con regime.
And while that thought needless to say gives me enormous pleasure. As do these words from a decent Christian Canadian.
Last week we saw one of the worst examples of what it means to be an Evangelical Christian. Following Omar Khadr’s release on bail, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who claims to be an Evangelical Christian, at least when he’s looking for your vote, appealed Khadr’s release and lost his challenge but continued to press on with his merciless attack on this young man. He just won’t let up no matter what the courts say. So much for his commitment to law and order.
How did our government become so blinded by their ideology? Maybe it is true “that a child shall lead them,” even if he is a 28-year-old man who has paid for his crimes. I say, “Let’s welcome Omar back home and show him what Canadians are all about, even if our government won’t.”
Right now I'll settle for this smaller but wonderfully human moment.
For years Omar has dreamed of riding a bicycle.
And yesterday his incredibly noble, and truly Canadian lawyer Dennis Edney bought him one, and watched him peddle off happily down the street.
And now according to Mrs Edney they can't get him off it.
What an amazing moment, the Guantanamo Kid rides free again.
And soon it will be our turn...
