Dr Strangelove, Wikileaks, and the Harper Americons

As you probably know I've always considered Tom Flanagan, Stephen Harper's former mentor, to be Canada's Dr Strangelove.

So his crazed final solution to the Wikileak's truth offensive isn't really surprising...

But it sure makes this Wikileak nugget even more ironic.

“The degree of comfort with which Canadian broadcast entities, including those financed by Canadian tax dollars, twist current events to feed longstanding negative images of the U.S. — and the extent to which the Canadian public seems willing to indulge in the feast — is noteworthy as an indication of the kind of insidious negative popular stereotyping we are increasingly up against in Canada...”

And humiliating.

A trove of diplomatic cables, obtained by WikiLeaks and made available to a number of publications, disclose a perception by American diplomats that Canadians “always carry a chip on their shoulder” in part because of a feeling that their country “is condemned to always play ‘Robin’ to the U.S. ‘Batman.’ ”

I mean can you believe that eh? When that batty villain Strangelove is spewing this American-style garbage ....on the CBC. And Canada has never been more American.

The Harper Cons are running on a law and order platform even though the crime rate is going down. And vowing to build new prisons, just like they do in the U.S.A.

We're following the Americans on climate change. Even though it's making us look like eco-criminals.

We're staying on in Afghanistan because they asked us told us. Even though our ambassador thinks the situation is hopeless.

We have a Prime Minister who think he's a President.

And thanks to him and his American Albertan Cons, we're ALWAYS playing the role of Robin...

I mean what more do these Americans want eh? That we should replace our tuques with top hats, put on our long underwear, pretend we're The Penguins, and tap dance to Yankee Doodle Dandy?

Don't worry. With Stephen Harper and his AmeriCons in power, sooner or later we will.

Oh boy. Remember when Canada was an independent country, and we didn't have to apologize for not being Amerikan?

Don't you miss this old ad?

And isn't it time we fought back?

Attention Harper, Strangelove, Con stooges, Yankee doodles.

Go fuck yourselves eh? Gently. Please.

This is Canada not Amerika...

Flanagan was one of the early carriers of the NeoCon virus that has so infected our country.

He is an American and carried his rancid ideas to Calgary. The school of Calgary is just a Chicago school farm team. Neo-Cons one and all. Hypocrisy is their stock in trade.

He is anti-Canadian scum and should be sent packing back to Amerika.
