Pierre Poilievre, Mini Harper, and the Con Race to the Bottom
As I'm sure you remember, the last time we dropped in on Pierre Poilievre aka Pee Wee or Dickhead, he was posing with a pile of child care benefit cheques at a printing facility in Winnipeg.
Just to let millions of Canadians with children under eighteen know that the cheque was almost in the mail.
And that it pays to vote for the Harper Cons. Wink. Wink.
Which was such a sordid spectacle, it was practically pornographic.
Well guess what? It just got worse.
Yes it's true, now he's trying to make it look like he's NOT trying to buy votes with OUR money.
He's STIMULATING the economy !!!!
Employment Minister Pierre Poilievre is touting the Conservative government's enhanced child care benefit as boost for the economy while warning that Canadians should take heed of offshore financial chaos.
Even though he won't use the S-word.
When asked, if it could be considered economic stimulus, he seemed reluctant to directly characterize it that way. "This $3 billion injection into the mailboxes and bank accounts of Canadians comes at a perfect time to support not only our families, but our retailers, as they generate thousands of jobs for Canadians," he said.
Just like Stephen Harper and his hopelessly incompetent stooge Joe Oliver won't use the R-word...
For very good reasons. The child care buy-a-vote program won't do much if anything to stimulate the economy. And if the Cons admitted we're either heading for a recession, or already in one, it would finish off their chances of winning the next election.
But then of course ever since he fixed the Election Act to make it harder to vote, and easier to steal an election, Poilievre can get away with anything.
Great Leader loves him so much they call him the Mini-Harper...
He's a rising star in the Harper Party.
It is a political coming of age. At 16, he was using his radio announcer’s voice to sell Reform Party memberships for Jason Kenney. Mr. Poilievre’s only real private-sector job was a post-university stint as partner in a company that did robocalls for politicians. He was a young staffer for Stockwell Day, and, after 18 months in Ottawa, ran for Parliament. Now he’s a senior figure.
And since we know that Stephen Harper corrupts everything he touches, and how he holds our democracy in contempt....
It's not surprising that Poilievre thinks he can buy votes, by appealing to the lower instincts of some Canadians...
But you know what? I don't think it's going work. I think most Canadians will gobble up those cheques and still vote to throw the Cons out.
I think most Canadians are tired of the corruption of the Con regime. Tired of the way they have raped our democracy and our values. Sick of the way they are wrecking our economy, cheerfully torching the planet, and trying to turn us into a grubby police state.
And I believe they're ready to say enough is enough.
Or as Jane says, I'm a Canadian....
So I think Mini Harper, along with all the other Cons and their depraved leader, is in for a horrible surprise.
Canadians cannot be bought, at least not THAT easily.
And he is going down...
And the best news? If that's the future of the Con party, we don't have anything to worry about.
A Dickhead is indeed a Dickhead.
And the future belongs to us...
