The Day Jason Kenney Accused the Liberals of Having a Hidden Agenda
It's finally official. At the stroke of midnight tomorrow Stephen Harper's ghastly little theocratic project, the so-called Office of Religious Freedom, will come crashing down.
And finally be buried in the garbage can of history.
The government will not renew the mandate of the controversial Office of Religious Freedom, according to Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion.
“We believe that human rights are better defended when they are considered, universal, indivisible, interdependent and interrelated, as set out in the Vienna Declaration,” said Mr. Dion.
And while I'm getting ready to celebrate, by leaning out of my window and ringing a cow bell loudly,
Jason Kenney is going ballistic!!!
And yes, can you believe it?
He's accusing the Liberals of having a "hidden agenda."
A Con of all people.
But then of course they are desperate. And why should anyone be surprised that Kenney should sound so crazy?
When the Office of Religious Freedom was Kenney's theocratic baby.
Designed only pander to the Con's rabid religious base.
And five years ago, when he first announced it, Kenney was even more inflamed.
"Perhaps there are some rabid secularists out there who don't understand there are a lot of vulnerable religious minorities under attack around the world," he said.
"To those people who would challenge it because they are uncomfortable with religious faith, I would say, 'Get over it'. We're talking about fundamental rights here."
If that's possible.
Because back then he was so swollen with power, he thought he could get away with ANYTHING...
Thought that in the service of his depraved leader Jesus Harper, he would be able to use the legions of young religious fanatics who worked for the Con regime, to impose their hidden agenda.
And turn our foreign policy into one worthy of some kind of theocratic Banana Republic. And our country into a police state.
Which is why Kenney is looking so dark and disappointed these days...
And sounding so crazy, after failing so miserably.
But can you imagine where a religious fanatic like him might have taken us if the Cons had won another majority?
For even The Economist, while playing down the theocratic threat, knew exactly who Jesus Harper resembled.
Stephen Harper is probably the nearest thing that Canada has had in recent times to a prime minister from the religious right. He is an evangelical Christian of a strongly pro-Israel persuasion.
And you only have to listen to the first part of this little video, which I made five years ago, and called Stephen Harper's Hidden Agenda, to understand why he was so dangerous...
And why we might have ended up like crazy America where religion is out of control.
We really did dodge a bullet. I hope Canadians never forget that.
But we did defeat those fanatics, and as we prepare to bury the Office of Religious Freedom.
Let's keep working as hard as we can, until the day we bury the Cons once and for all...
