Stephen Harper's Insane War on Quebec
As I waited for Stephen Harper to begin speaking I wondered who he would be tonight. The foaming rabid demagogue who is willing to destroy this country to save himself? Or would he try to be Mr Reasonable...and beg for his job?
But as soon as he opened his mouth I knew that The Creeper was BACK.
The same guy with the weird voice who tried to fool Quebecers into thinking he was just a poor little nice guy during the French-language debate. Only to have Quebecers take one look at that scary phony apparition and run for their lives .
Just like I'm sure English Canadians will.
So I'm not going to say anymore about the speech except to say I thought our side beat the shit out of the tyrant.
I just want to say a few more things about Harper's insane war on Quebec. I know I blogged about this earlier today.
But as a proud Quebecer and a proud Canadian, who lives in both French and English, I feel I need to say even more. Because I love my country too much to let that maniac get away with MURDER.
(1) The Bloc Quebecois has every right to be a member of the coalition ....if only in a supporting role. It represents the views of millions of ordinary Quebecers who pay taxes and are Canadian citizens like everybody else. And most Bloc members are not separatists they are social democrats who voted to stop Harper from killing our CANADIAN values. So they should be applauded not vilified.
(2) Jacques Parizeau's gloating is not a sign of strength it's a sign of weakness no matter what this right-wing idiot says.
The fact is the separatist project in Quebec is DEADER than a door nail these days. And because most Quebecers support the Coalition for Change, Parizeau had no choice but to make it sound like a separatist victory instead of a victory for Canada... which is what it really is. And the truth is that except for a handful of hardliners NOBODY gives a damm what that ridiculous old man has to say anymore.
(3) Harper's use of the word separatist in English Canada may work to stir up the anti-Quebec hatemongers. But in Quebec it will go down like a BOMB. Because we don't call them separatists we call them sovereignists and many of them are members of our families or our friends. So we may disagree with them strongly, but we love them all the same. And when Great Crazy Leader attacks them in such a vile manner, he attacks us ALL.
And that Alberta separatist is going to pay for it.
Political analysts say such tactics could likely fuel the secessionist movement, which has been off-the-radar for the Bloc Quebecois in the past four or five years.
I only hope our country doesn't pay for it as well. Because by whipping up anti-Quebec feeling, and pitting the West against the East, Harper is lighting some long dead fires that could one day consume this nation.
And for that reason ALONE he must go.
The Creeper has damaged our beautiful country enough. Now he's trying to KILL it to save himself.
We cannot let him get away with it.
Defeat him. Crush him.
Finish him off...
