Stephen Harper's Hugely Embarrassing List of Canadian Heroes
Historians will no doubt have a hard time trying to explain how so many Canadians were fooled for so long by Stephen Harper, in the horrifying years known as The Great Darkness.
When evil reigned, scientists were muzzled, history was reduced to propaganda and the cult of his personality. And hope withered on the vine.
But at least they'll agree on one thing: He was no Canadian hero or a Great Leader.
Except in his own troubled mind.
Just a morally depraved tinpot dictator, who must have really hated this list of REAL Canadian heroes.
Canadians have handed the Harper government a Top 10 list of the country's greatest heroes, featuring some of the Conservative party's greatest adversaries, past and present.
The list, compiled from online consultations in the run-up to Canada's 150th birthday in 2017, includes Pierre Trudeau, Jack Layton, David Suzuki and Lester B. Pearson.
Because let's face it eh?
Just the sight of Trudeau and Suzuki on that list is enough to make him crawl on all fours around his office, screaming like a hyena, and biting the carpet.
Or climbing the walls...
And it It must be maddening to know that only ONE Con made the Top Ten.
Sir John A. Macdonald.
And he would probably have disowned him and his sinister cult...
And of course, this must have REALLY driven him over the deep end eh?
The consultation also asked which of Canada's accomplishments of the last 150 years "make you most proud to be a Canadian?"
Medicare topped that list, followed by peacekeeping, then the 1982 Charter of Rights and Freedoms at No. 3.
Can you believe it? The Charter he has tried so hard to violate. The peacekeepers whose noble record he has tried to diminish. The medicare system he is stealthily working to destroy.
Could it be more embarrassing? Or more of a slap in the face.
And of course speaking of embarrassing, it would have to be Shelley Glover, the hapless Heritage Minister, trying to downplay that list, or BURY it...
Glover said the exercise was simply to consult Canadians about how to celebrate 2017, adding "we have no intention of making a kind of final list."
Because she's no Canadian hero herself. Except to the gun lobby and others in the rabid Con base.
Or their sympathizers and collaborators in the Con media...
Who if that list was ever honoured would demand that Glover shoot the CBC TOMORROW. Instead of sadistically bleeding it to death.
And the good news? Isn't it great that after all those ghastly years, Stephen Harper STILL hasn't been able to kill our Canadian values?
And that as the Ontario election showed only too clearly, Canada is STILL a progressive country.
Because it can only mean this: Harperland has no future. It was just a monstrous aberration.
Their demon seed has failed to take root.
Cons could never be Canadian heroes.
And the Great Dictator will soon be on his way to the scrap yard of history...
