Oh. My.Goddess. I see Great Wolf Leader's theocratic hordes are baying for the
They are desperately trying to discredit her book, yapping and yowling about how she's a paranoid nut job... just like them...just worse. Or accusing her of being an anti-religious bigot, when in fact she is religious herself.
But if this pathetic gibberish is the best they can spout.
They're in deep doo doo.
Although I see Paul Wells joins the palpatine pulpit by accusing McDonald of exaggerating the threat.
I think she overstates the influence of Christian conservatives in Stephen Harper’s Ottawa in a way that saps her book of too much of its credibility.
But admits that he himself has written about the subject:
In one of the most-read and most-remarked pieces I’ve written this year, I went on at some length about the influence of social conservatives, including what she calls Christian nationalists, in Harper’s Ottawa. I myself have argued that there’s a real presence with real clout. So what’s got up my nose this week?
So I humbly suggest that what's stuck in his nasal passage is this sour
The Armageddon Factor is a fascinating account of the growing sophistication, diverse agendas and increasing political clout of a reinvigorated, well-organized Christian right in Stephen Harper's Ottawa -- a movement that has blossomed, almost un remarked, under the noses of the secular mainstream media.
Yup. Right under their big noses. Forget the grapes and give me some tomatoes. Because that's the story isn't it?
A powerful group of theocons comes together in the very heart of our government, starts an American style culture war, uses Old Testament prophesy to shape policy, and give themselves the right to discriminate against groups of Canadians just because of who they are.
And the mainstream media MISSED it. Blew it. Couldn't connect the dots. Or were too chicken to even look. So Canadians had no idea what was going on, and this unholy mix of religion and policy, this assault on our secular values, just went on and on.
Even though it was an affront to our democracy, and the way the Cons have governed should have provided them with more than enough clues.
Strikingly, the new right's rhetoric rings with Old Testament vengeance and is conspicuously missing Christian charity. That punitive, disapproving tone -- whether it springs from religious wrath, or cultural alienation -- seems embedded in the Harper government's DNA.
Should have alerted them that something screwy was going on, and that Stephen Harper was more than just a sinister control freak.
Or just a failed fiscal Conservative...
But the old Con wolf managed to draw the wool over their eyes. Those dumb little scribblers. Baaaaaaaaaah.
Oh well, at least the story is out now. And everywhere I go I hear people talking about it. Did you hear about the religious cult in the Prime Minister's Office eh? Do you think Stephen Harper knew about it ? And when I tell them he's the ringleader, they are even MORE shocked.
And of course now even the Con rabble will be OUTRAGED.
Outraged I tell you. I can hear them now. Can you believe that eh? They spent almost a million bucks on Bibles !!!!!! Instead of fixing up the hockey arena, and buying us a new Zamboni. !!!!! If they want Bibles they should
It's the perfect TRIFECTA. The timing is indeed divine. First came the attack on women and gay people and groups like Rights and Democracy. Then came the book. Then came the Bible Scandal. Now only an idiot can't connect the dots. So even our blobby media can hope for redemption.
Yup. These ReformCons can attack The Armageddon Factor all they want. But the more they attack it, the more people will hear about it, and the more they will believe it's true. Because these Cons are so secretive, and lie about EVERYTHING, almost nobody believes anything they say anymore. They are impaled on their own
And now we are going to hit them where it HURTS.
Which reminds me....does anyone know where I can get some video of some sinister monks chanting desperately, and some human skulls...with Christmas lights in their sockets.?
Because I'm making this new attack video eh?
And the video I got today of the theocons in the PMO trying to pray Marci McDonald away, and get The Rapture to come quicker....like TOMORROW.
Isn't really scary enough...
Or is it?
Was that Jason Kenney in a diaper? The naughty boy.
Hallelujah. We have the Cons where we want them.
And Marci McDonald is a Canadian hero...
