The Ukraine Crisis and the Absurd Con Clowns
Someone recently compared the Ukrainian crisis to the beginning of the First World War.
Where new alliances, old hatreds, and excessive nationalism created an explosive mixture until one act of senseless violence set the whole thing off.
And this couldn't be a more a dangerous showdown.
So needless to say I'm not happy to see that Stephen Harper is still planning to visit Ukraine.
Still threatening to inflame the situation.
In his relentless pursuit of the Ukrainian-Canadian vote.
Still posing as a champion of democracy in that country, while suppressing it in Canada, and ignoring it in others.
He supports the Ukrainian popular revolt that toppled a corrupt president. But he did not back the popular revolt in Bahrain against an autocratic king, or the historic uprising in Egypt against the corrupt and brutal autocrat Hosni Mubarak. In fact, he backed the Egyptian army when it toppled the democratically elected president Mohammed Morsi last year. The coup restored “stability,” Harper said.
That’s what Putin said, too, in embracing Egyptian strongman Gen. Abdul-Fattah el-Sisi. Putin is at least consistent — he has no use for democracy in either Egypt or Ukraine.
Unless of course he can use a crisis to win some ethnic group's vote.
As valid as his criticisms of Russia’s outrageous actions have been, his pronouncements are clearly not designed to carve out a constructive role for Canada but rather tailored to elicit applause at home from Canadian Ukrainians — just as his piano-playing gig in Israel reduced the prime minister to an entertainer desperate to please his audience.
For in pursuit of that him and his Cons will do or say ANYTHING.
Treasury Board President Tony Clement took to social media Thursday to let his 37,400 followers know he’ll be presenting the Ukrainian flag in his riding of Huntsville, Ont. Only trouble was it was upside down.
Because they are Con clowns.
But of course the really alarming part is that Harper belongs to a church that believes that the Russians will play the bad guys in the Battle of Gog and Magog.
You know this one...
Believes that the world could end tomorrow.
And that's a good thing...
So he doesn't really care what happens in Ukraine. For him and his religious base it's a win-win situation.
But of course we do eh?
And all I can say is that the sooner we get rid of those Con clowns, and their maniac leader.
The safer the world will be...
