The Con War on Canadian Values
I knew it was too good to be last. There I was on another warm day in the Great White North. I'm thinking oh yeah Monkey God this is MY Canada.
And then came the dark cloud.
A Harris-Decima survey for the Manning Centre, says Canadians who identify themselves as in the centre of the political ideological scale are increasingly embracing traditionally “conservative” values.
Those include the “supremacy of the family,” an incremental approach to resolving problems, the definition of marriage and that abortion is “morally wrong.”
And now I'm stumbling down the beach wondering hey who stole my beautiful country? And where can I get another one? Because I don't want to live in a shit hole with Alberta values.
Now look I don't know if this poll is accurate. I have my doubts and so does pogge.
Although if Cons are allowed to defecate on a country for four years with about 33 per cent of the vote I suppose anything is possible
But one thing I do know is that they are fighting an ideological war.
According to a Twitter report, one of the morning panelists declared: "If you have a university prof trying to jam lefty ideas down ur throat, send me an e-mail, I'll make them famous."
While we are divided, and can't seem to see the forest for the trees.
You know like Rick Mercer I like to make fun of the Cons. Because laughter and resistance go together. And it's important not to give in to despair.
But I never forget that these Con ideologues are trying to change Canada into a place I wouldn't recognize. And that the time has come to join forces and fight them harder than ever before.
Because they ARE waging war on our values. And our country IS being lost.
Cue Massive Attack.
