As you know I've always considered Jason Kenney's singular contribution to Canadian politics a real freak show.
I've had trouble taking that ghastly religious fanatic seriously since he said that gays were free to get married. As long as they married someone of the opposite sex.
One moment he's accusing Thomas Mulcair of being soft on religious freedom, like he did last week.
The next moment he's bashing Iran. Or swearing allegiance to Israel. And now he's been caught with his pants down in an embarrassing position.
In mid-February, immigration minister Jason Kenney toured a Toronto-area Islamic centre tied to Islamic Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaat (ISIJ), a Toronto-area organization put on notice by the York Regional Police for disseminating anti-Semitic literature.
And will no doubt spend the next three days on his knees, flagellating himself with a palm branch, begging his Lord, and Benjamin Netanyahu, to forgive him.
But here's the real scary part eh? In some parts of this country this horrifying freak show is bigger than Bieber !!!
During a jam-packed itinerary stretching across the GTA on a recent Saturday, Kenney was mobbed by excited shoppers at the Pacific Mall in Markham, grabbed on Toronto streets by supporters for impromptu photos, cheered by hundreds at a Tibetan New Year celebration and showered with confetti at a gala dinner.
Gawd. It really makes you wonder what's happening to this country. Makes you wonder whether the Cons are favouring religious immigrants over the others to try to make Canada more conservative.
And whether some of those ethnic communities realize that whatever the Cons say, it's all about the right of Christians to convert others. Even in a place like Tibet.
Robbie Barnett, a leading Tibet expert at Columbia University, argues that the missionary phenomenon overturns the standard notion of western attitudes towards Tibet – that western society is intent on protecting Tibetan religion, while the Chinese government is more concerned with dismantling it. "If you look at foreigners there, there are people whose commitment is to the opposite – it's to replace Tibetan religion with their own religion."
Because the Con's rabid base considers all other religions dubious or dangerous. We now live in a quasi-theocracy where religion affects everything from day to day politics, to whether social services live or die, to the machinations of our foreign policy.
And nobody in the MSM dares say a thing, lest they're accused of being anti-religious.
Oh well. And the good news?
Kenney is hoping to use that ethnic support to become the leader of the Cons, after Stephen Harper leaves, resigns, or is jailed....
And we've got to do everything in our power, even pray if necessary, to make sure he WINS. Because nothing could split and eventually destroy the Conservative party more than a Kenney victory.
So don't be too hard on Jason eh? Try to emphasize his strong points to your friends and neighbours. Like how many men of his age are still living with their mothers? Or have sworn a vow of chastity?
Can Bieber match that? Huh? You know he can't.
And besides, how many Canadian politicians have admirers like the famous right-wing
When Stossel asked Coulter: “Why can’t gays get married?” She replied: “Well, they can. They have to marry a member of the opposite sex.” She was heartily booed.
Who as you can see, still quotes him RELIGIOUSLY.
Yup. The Lord may have plans for Kenney, but so do I eh?
Hallelujah !!! Hallelujah !!!
Go Jason go...
Golly. I'm BLESSED.
Who knew a freak show could be so useful?
