Stephen Harper and There's Always Money For A War, The Video
It has been said of Stephen Harper that he cannot feel the pain of others.
And I'm sure that's true because he is a clinical psychopath.
So I didn't expect him to feel much sympathy for this poor dead child...
Especially since his government had a hand in making sure he never made it to Canada.
But I never thought he would use that tragedy to reject the idea of more help for refugees.
And instead make the case for more war.
Stephen Harper is rejecting calls for Canada to take immediate action to resettle Syrian refugees in response to a growing humanitarian crisis, arguing the problem is bigger than simply bringing in more refugees.
He said military action is required in order to address the root causes that are forcing millions to flee the war-ravaged regions, noting he has already pledged during the campaign to accept 10,000 more refugees from Syria and Iraq over four years if re-elected.
But somehow he managed, because he is a psychopath. Managed to glorify war, portray himself as a Great Warrior Leader. And use that dead child as a weapon to bludgeon his opponents.
Even though the plight of those refugees couldn't be more desperate. Even though he himself admits, the war is going nowhere. And even though, as he won't admit, a new Pentagon report says it is killing civilians.
An internal Pentagon document obtained by CBC's the fifth estate raises questions about the quality of the investigation conducted by coalition forces into an allegation that as many as 27 civilians were killed in Iraq by a Canadian airstrike.
Now I'll have more to say about all of this, and Great Warrior Leader's latest Big Lies, in my next post.
But for now I leave you with this new and great song: There's Always Money For A War...
And of course, leave you with the usual question.
When can we get rid of this warmongering maniac?
Before he kills this country...
