Stephen Harper and the Conada Day Horror Show
I tuned into the Canada Day show on Parliament Hill today just as they were playing God Save The Queen.
And just in time to see Great Patriotic Leader proclaim that we should all be happy and proud to be Canadians.
In his remarks, Harper told the crowd that Canadians have much for which to be proud and thankful. "Proud of a strong and growing economy, proud of a caring and compassionate society...
Which made me laugh so loudly, I expelled a large piece of bagel with such force it flew through the air and hit the TV screen just below his left nostril. Which was disgusting but strangely appropriate. Even if it was the wrong nose hole.
Because who would ever describe Harper and his ghastly Con regime as caring and compassionate? When not even the children are safe.
And who could ever expect us to be proud of living in a stinking sewer like Harperland? Only the Booger Man eh?
But wait, it gets worse. After mumbling some inanities about the War of 1812, and some bubbly stuff about the Queen's Jubilee, came the ultimate horror:
Prime Minister Stephen Harper also found himself caught up in the spirit of the day. As the events drew to a close, he was prompted by the crowd chanting his name to change his mind about getting into his car and ran off to shake a few more hands.
He waded into the crowd, and to my shock and disgust, they greeted him like a ROCK STAR !!!!!
Can you believe that? What's wrong with those yokels in that stuffy village by the Rideau? I realize the crowd was carefully screened by the RCMP.
Thousands of people were forced to stay on Wellington Street by RCMP, who let only a trickle of visitors past the gates for the noon show, the CBC's Peter Mansbridge reported.
But why couldn't they be like the real Canadians at the Skydome in Toronto today, who when Harper's Canada Day message was played to them, booed it LOUDLY.
Or like the people who made #denounceharper a major trend on Twitter.
Or like the crowd at this massive gathering.
Because I was there with my friends, and hundreds of thousands of others. And I can GUARANTEE you if Harper's message had been played to them, the boos would have been heard from St John's to Vancouver.
But then that's why Stephen Harper is still in power eh?
As long as he can fool enough idiot Canadians into thinking he's a nice guy, or a real economist, or make them bubbly with emotion over our colonial history, or the military, or the mindless activities of a foreign monarch.
He'll keep winning, and we'll get the government we don't deserve...
Happy Conada Day everybody !!!
Ottawa how could you?
I hope you enjoyed the fireworks...
As for me, because I love this country eh?
I'll only celebrate Canada Day again.
The day the Cons are defeated...
