Three days ago I told you about Stephen Harper's visit to Las Vegas, to meet with the shadowy right wing billionaire Sheldon Adelson.
And lecture Republicans on how to united their fracturing party.
But I wasn't able to determine whether Harper also attended the Republican Jewish Coalition meeting that Adelson was hosting that weekend.
That is until I saw this.
So now that we know he was there, I thought it might be interesting to look at some of the others on the list of speakers.
For as Press Progress points out, the list reads like a who's who of the Republican Tea Party movement.
Like Ted Cruz, the Calgary-born tool of the religious right, who has so much in common with Harper...
Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, who has called for the outright abolition of the IRS and remarked that a landmark US Supreme Court decision legalizing same sex marriage was a sign "our country is in a time of crisis."
And would turn the U.S. into a theocracy, like Harper would have done if he'd won another majority.
Then there's Rick Scott, the reactionary governor of Florida...
Florida Governor Rick Scott, who has not only had issues with voter suppression, islamophobia, trying to ban the word "climate change" and endorsing Donald Trump for President, he also notably released an attack ad against one of his own constituents.
Who as you can see also has a lot in common with Harper.
And who before he became governor spent a lot of time and money attacking Obamacare by putting down our medicare system.
So you know him and Steve would have got along famously.
And then there's Scott Walker, the fascist governor of Wisconsin, who has crushed union rights in that state.
And was once pushing the idea of building a wall along the U.S. Canada border...
And who shortly after floating that wacky idea, had a secret meeting with Stephen Harper.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper quietly took a meeting last month with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, a likely candidate for the Republican presidential nomination and a bête noire to American progressives for his anti-union policies and vocal opposition to same-sex marriage.
The Prime Minister’s Office made no mention of Walker’s visit in Ottawa, issuing neither a press release nor media advisory. The only notice of the meeting came in a press release from Walker’s office that was picked up by a few political blogs in the U.S.
That the Cons tried desperately to conceal ...
For who knows what sinister reason.
And lastly but not leastly, there's Pastor John Hagee.
Pastor John Hagee, who claimed Hurricane Katrina was an act of God to punish New Orleans for holding a "homosexual rally," which is Hagee's term for a gay pride parade.
Who in addition to being a foul bigot, is also a leader of the so-called Dominionist movement that believes that Israel must not give up any land it has seized, because the Christian Messiah will needs it when he returns.
And who just happens to be the guiding light of the man once described as the chaplin of the Harper PMO, the equally foul homophobe Charles McVety...
Last seen during the election campaign doing his bit for the cause.
Now isn't that a small world?
And when you look at that shady cast of characters you have to wonder what a former prime minister of Canada is doing in that company.
And the answer is sadly obvious.
He was trying to impress his
Because he was was a tool of Netanyahu's settler regime, and he was and always will be a real Republican.
Which brings me back to the two questions I have asked before:
Who was Stephen Harper really working for all those years?
And aren't you glad we defeated him?
