The Monster Burger and the Inner Torment of Jason Kenney
Lordy. I think it's safe to say that Jason Kenney is now wrestling with his greatest inner torment since he chose chastity over sex, so many painful years ago.
For he is truly caught between the devil and a Big Mac.
On the one hand, because so many Canadians are so outraged, he's trying to look like he's cracking down on the sordid foreign workers scandal.
The government's decision to impose a moratorium on the fast-food industry's access to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program will send employers "a very clear message" that abuse will not be tolerated, says Employment Minister Jason Kenney.
On the other hand he also apparently agrees with the CEO of McDonald's Canada, who believes that Kenney's moratorium is "bullshit."
"This has been an attack on our brand. This has been an attack on our system. This is an attack on our people. It’s bullshit OK! I used those words when I described my conversation with the minister last week. He gets it," McDonald's Canada CEO John Betts is heard saying.
Which tells me that Kenney must be desperate, especially since he helped create the problem...
And only a few days ago was still calling it a minor one.
Which no doubt explains why the fast food industry is so outraged, outraged I tell you.
To see their loyal pimp suddenly turn on them...
But then those fast food sharks will do or say ANYTHING to get their fix of cheap foreign labour.
A moratorium on hiring temporary foreign workers for the food service industry could force the closure of restaurants and put Canadians out of work, industry experts say.
We're already hearing from members saying they don't know how they're going to be able to keep their restaurants open in certain locales." "I anticipate that unfortunately, we will see some restaurants close."
Because like Kenney, they too are shameless, would betray their own people, and drag us all down in a deathly race to the bottom.
And all I can say is I'm with Cathie from Canada on this one.
How dare those grubby greedsters insult us in such a disgusting manner? Who do they think they are? Who do they think we are?
If they can't survive without employing foreign workers, they SHOULD go out of business.
And if they keep on using foreigners instead of Canadians, we'll make sure they DO go out of business, because we'll find out where they are.
And make sure EVERYBODY does...
You know Canadians may be a passive people, or a quiet people as I prefer to think of them, for my own sanity eh?
But I'm pretty sure that most of them will not consent to live as strangers, or slaves in their own country.
I certainly won't, not after seeing the way some of my own friends have been humiliated and mistreated by our shabby business class.
Or seeing that poor waitress in Saskatchewan cry after losing her job to a foreign worker...
Because it's been a long time since I've felt so angry.
And my only consolation is that it really does leave Kenney in a desperate position, caught between the devil and the Big Mac.
If he backs down he will enrage Canadians further, if he doesn't his business friends will turn on the Cons. Because he fed their addiction for cheap labour, turned them into greedy monsters.
Now they're out of control...
And the Cons must live with the consequences.
And we'll make sure they do eh?
Because as we all know, phony patriotism has always been a big part of the Con brand. A way of attracting their dumbest supporters, like a flame does a moth.
So if we can shatter that phony image, we can do them incredible damage where it hurts the most.
And now is the time, for we will never have a better opportunity.
Or a mightier issue to use against them like a weapon.
Or a more powerful slogan.
One that can hit people in the gut, like one of those greasy burgers.
DOWN WITH THE TRAITOR CONS.
CANADA FOR CANADIANS...
