Stephen Harper and the Murderous War on Drugs
Well I knew the depraved and increasingly desperate Stephen Harper would say or do anything to try to distract us from the Duffy trial.
And sure enough I was right. First came his latest attempt to resuscitate the Great War on Terror.
And now comes yet another attempt to revive the Great War on Drugs.
The Conservatives promised Tuesday that, if re-elected, they would spend almost $27 million a year to help the RCMP root out drug labs and change the focus of the national mental health commission that it created in 2007.
The campaign pledge would see an extra $4.5 million per year, on top of the $22 million currently budgeted, for an RCMP team designed to crack down on illegal drug labs and marijuana grow-ops.
But while that only makes him sound even more like a reefer maniac.
Or a kinky fascist who gets a creamy pleasure out of jailing young Canadians...
You know, the man they call Handcuffs Harper.
This couldn't be more obscene.
There would be no new money for the mental health commission, which had its funding renewed in the 2015 budget. Instead, it would focus on finding links between drugs and mental health issues, a departure from its current mandate of “working to reduce stigma,” “advancing knowledge” in mental health and helping homeless people with mental health problems.
For let's be clear, that filthy lowlife leader is now threatening to harm some of the country's poorest and most vulnerable citizens just to pleasure his own rabid base.
And his latest assault on the wonderful Insite clinic in Vancouver is nothing less than attempted murder...
A re-elected Conservative government, he said, wouldn’t fund any programs like Insite, unless they included a treatment program to help people kick their addictions. “Providing programs that do not provide treatment in our view is just throwing away the key and writing off somebody’s life,” Harper said.
For that clinic has saved thousands of lives, and is the first step on the road to recovery for many heroin addicts.
But then what can anyone expect from a man who would play cheap politics with the lives of others?
It is reefer madness, just ask Buddy Ford.
Four days ago, the Conservative Party told Ford — their candidate in Repentigny, Quebec — that he couldn’t run for them because he was charged with and pleaded guilty to possessing “one joint” in 2011.
And nobody will be safe in this country until we can get rid of those reefer maniacs...
Because if you thought that was insane, so is Stephen Harper.
Defeat this monstrous maniac, and sentence him to life in prison.
Before he kills more Canadians...
