Stephen Harper and the Con War on Women

He's been trying to soften his image by posing as a friend of poor women and children. He told a U.N. group on maternal health that "action trumps rhetoric.". 

His stooge John Baird denounced forced marriage, and warned of the health dangers for young women who get pregnant.

Statistics provided by Baird's office show girls under 15 years old are five times more likely to die in childbirth than women in their 20s, and children born to mothers under 18 years old are 60 per cent more likely to die in their first year of life. Childbirth is the leading cause of death for girls 15 to 18 years old.

But today his foul Con regime made it clear that providing those young women and girls with safe abortions is out of the question. Even if they've been RAPED.

Stephen Harper’s Conservative government is refusing to let development funding go to projects that provide abortions for child brides and the victims of war rape.

So much for Great Mother Leader who would put his grotesque ideology before decency and humanity.

To pleasure his inner demons and his rabid base...

Because let's be clear, as he likes to say, while polishing his phony pancake halo, that's what this latest atrocity is all about.

In three weeks time he will be forced to meet his ugly base at the Con Convention. Many of them aren't happy with the scraps he has given them. So he wants to give them a full body massage before he gets there.

And if you look at the record of just the last two weeks, you can see that he's not just giving them a teabagger tug and rub, he's been blowing them like a hoover.

First he had the new/nouveau Health Minister Rona Ambrose reject a plan to help heroin addicts. Because his rabid religious base likes sinners to suffer.

Then to make sure they got the message, and kept those dollars coming, he attacked his own government AND the village idiot.

Conservatives are asking people to give money so that Health Canada, which is headed by Health Minister Rona Ambrose, doesn’t again decide to give heroin to addicts.

Then he had his new/nouveau Public Security Minister Steve Blaney come out, reject the idea of decriminalizing marijuana AND accuse Justin Trudeau of pushing pot to kids.

Which is music to the hairy ears of his base because they can't put enough kids in jail eh? And bashing Justin, The Antichrist, gets them so excited aroused they start clutching themselves and talking in tongues.

Then he threw a bleeding bone to the gun nuts in his base, by refusing to sign a landmark arms treaty, and catering to their paranoid fantasies.

Canada's recreational firearms lobby is telling the Harper government to avoid signing a landmark United Nations arms trade treaty, arguing it could lead to an insidious return of the federal long-gun registry.

Then gave them a new Supreme Court justice, a man not a woman, who wanted to keep Omar Khadr in Guantanamo. And once played hockey. Apparently.

You know, their kind of judge.

And then for the icing on the cake he had his new/nouveau Environment Minister, the Inuk Leona Agglukaq, solemnly declare that climate change was debatable AND attack the NDP's nonexistent carbon tax. 

You know that instrument of SATAN.

I mean really, all Great Ugly Leader has to do now is attack Obamacare, and his base will start massaging HIS buttocks.

And the good news? It's just another sign of desperation. With his polls around thirty per cent he needs his base and their money more than ever. So he will do ANYTHING to please them.

But it won't be enough, because they are not easily satisfied.

And of course, we will use all of this against him. Portray him as a man who would surrender us into the hands of religious fanatics, and other right-wing extremists. A teabagger, a maniac, a MONSTER...

Or just a man who hates women. And for that alone should be FIRED.

Yup. I can't wait for the Con Convention eh?

May his own base rise up.

May madness rule. May his own monsters come after him.

May his own evil consume him...

He is also the father of a teenage girl, Rachel. I remember when Mulroney went batshit about some "Frank" story speculating about his kid, but is it even possible to ask this hunk of unfeeling plastic how he'd react if it were HIS daughter?
