Mr Harper Goes to the Vatican
When I saw this horrible picture it reminded me of a movie I once saw. Either the Munsters Meet Dracula....or Evita of Arabia.
That is a hijab isn't it ?
But then I remembered it was just the latest installment of that B movie Mr Harper Goes to Europe. The Final Chapter: Pandering to the Pope.
"I expressed my deep appreciation for the Holy Father's moral and humanitarian leadership as an advocate of human dignity, peace and religious liberty, and for the spiritual leadership he provides to Catholics in Canada and throughout the world."
Golly. Human dignity? I bet that's news to most people, including many Catholics.
But then I suppose Great Embarrassing Leader was desperate to get Benny to lift the Curse of the Holy Cracker.
Desperate to get behind closed doors and claim some homophobic Popey points.
For kicking Diane Ablonczy over the rainbow.
And for making it clear that Brad Trost...or Vlad Toast as the Pope lovingly calls him...speaks for him and his reactionary SoCon government.
He defended the review of funding given to Toronto's Pride Week, saying it was "important that programs be administered according to their criteria at an unbiased way."
Which of course is a bullshit but also a BLESSING. Because by their actions we shall know them.
Now we know that if these ReformCons ever got a majority they would gut women's rights, criminalize abortion, and make gay marriage illegal. As well as flood our society with guns, bring back the death penalty, and destroy medicare.
Every gay person in this country now knows what fate awaits them if these sinister theocons ever get a majority.
The question I have is do other Canadians recognize the danger? After burying their heads in the sand for so long.
Or do they think that Sarah Palin is more of a threat to our country than the SoCons who have burrowed into our government?
And if not will they ask the obvious question?
Who is REALLY running Canada?
