Stephen Harper's Absurd And Hypocritical Ukraine Expedition
Well there he was in Ukraine, posing as a champion of democracy, in relentless pursuit of the ethnic vote.
Or a Great Warrior Leader.
Blasting Con propaganda out of every orifice.
Or a dangerous chicken hawk.
Stephen Harper’s visit here Saturday was short, symbolic and sombre, a moment of historic significance when once again Canada took a first step with Ukraine at a crucial moment in its history.
But the most significant facet of a six-hour show of solidarity was the Canadian prime minister’s final transformation into the Hawk of Sussex Dr. on the question of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s seizing of the Crimea.
Suggesting that other nations might have to arm themselves.
The prime minister, who flew in from The Hague Saturday morning and returned there in the evening, said in his meeting with Yatsenyuk that Putin, by repudiating the Budapest Memorandum, “has provided a rationale for those elsewhere who needed little more encouragement than that already furnished by pride or grievance to arm themselves to the teeth.’’
No doubt with the help of the Canadian military industrial complex eh?
Because as you know, with the Cons in power, they'll sell weapons to ANYONE.
Even though the situation is tense enough.
War is definitely not the answer.
The Europeans need Harper stirring up things for crass political purposes.
Like they need a hole in the head, or a superpower confrontation.
Or a mad monkey in their midst...
And this statement from Great Freedom Leader takes hypocrisy to its absolute limit.
“The government of Canada has always stood with those who defend freedom, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law,” Harper said at a joint news conference with Yatsenyuk following their meeting.
Coming as it does from the sinister totalitarian who is doing everything he can to destroy our freedoms, cripple our democracy, muzzle his opponents, and suppress the vote.
The tin pot tyrant whose foul election bill is sending the wrong message to democracies all over the world.
The Conservative government is trying to change Canadian election law in a way that is "deeply disturbing" and "sends a very poor message" to countries trying to become democracies, an international democracy expert says.
"When a democratic, established democracy in the west like Canada seems to be curtailing its own ability to do that, it sends a very poor message to new countries in the Arab world, in Africa, in Asia, who are attempting to move from authoritarianism to democracy," he said.
And who wouldn't know the rule of law if it hit him in the face.
But then those are our shabby Cons, and the whole world knows exactly who they are.
The greatest bunch of phonies and fraudsters Canada has ever produced, who will do ANYTHING to win an election.
They know that Stephen Harper is no champion of democracy.
And that despite his big words, and his absurd and dangerous posturing.
He won't be Prime Minister of Canada for much longer.
And even with his spiffy paper hat.
He is definitely no great Great Leader...
