The Globe and Mail's Pathetic Endorsement of the Harper Cons
Well it's not exactly a surprise. The Globe and Mail's editorial board has endorsed Stephen Harper's Cons in the last three elections.
No matter what their reporters and columnists have had to say about him for the last four years.
But this couldn't be more absurd.
Canada needs a change. It also needs the maintenance of many aspects of the economic status quo. What Canada needs, then, is a Conservative government that is no longer the Harper government.
It is not time for the Conservatives to go. But it is time for Mr. Harper to take his leave. He can look back on parts of his record with pride, but he has undone himself and his party with a narrowness of vision and a meanness of spirit on a host of issues, from voting rights to crime and punishment to respect for science to respect for the courts.
His party deserves to be re-elected. But after Oct. 19, he should quickly resign. The Conservative Party, in government or out, has to reclaim itself from Stephen Harper.
When everybody knows that the Cons ARE the Harper party.
And that if he is re-elected he will NEVER resign.
So needless to say the Globe's decision is being mercilessly mocked on Twitter
And so is the Globe's Editor-in-Chief David Walmsley.
Who deserves a flying beanie AND a red clown nose for that pathetic effort.
For is he seriously suggesting that we should re-elect the Cons, so Stephen Harper can step down, and Jason Kenney can succeed him?
And we can all live in a stinking theocracy.
But then of course we know that Walmsley and his editorialists weren't the ones who made the decision to endorse the Cons but not Harper.
The decision came from the top...
And that's why we can't trust the corporate media as far as we can spit. Because when it comes down to the crunch, it's always about the rich and their profits.
And the good news?
In a country where an overwhelming majority of Canadians want change, that absurd half assed endorsement won't mean a thing.
It will only hurt the credibility of the Globe.
We will decide the fate of the Cons.
That pathetic endorsement will only motivate us more.
And the monstrous dictator is going down...
