Stephen Harper and the Umbrella Revolution
It's an amazing sight, and an incredibly inspiring one. Tens of thousands of pro-democracy demonstrators defying the authorities in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong democracy protesters defied volleys of tear gas and police baton-charges to stand firm in the center of the global financial hub on Monday, one of the biggest political challenges for Beijing since the Tiananmen Square crackdown 25 years ago.
The so-called Umbrella Revolution...
But while I'm cheering the protesters on wildly, and praying for their safety at the same time.
You can be sure that Stephen Harper is shaking his umbrella at them, and cursing them loudly for threatening to rain on his parade.
Because as you know he is planning to visit China in November, in the final stage of his grand plan to seize or penetrate every possible ethnic voter in Canada.
As he outlined recently in that deeply disturbing interview with the Wall Street Journal.
What’s most interesting politically about our coming to office and staying in office, in fact growing our support while we’ve been in office over the past decade, has been that the growth of conservatism in Canada – our electoral support – has been largely, not exclusively, but largely by our penetration of immigrant voters, of so-called cultural communities.
We were, 50 years ago, like many conservative parties in other parts of the world. We had a very small share of that vote. Today, we win most of those communities and we are the majority party in so-called cultural communities writ large. We are the majority party.
And as you also know, in order to get the Chinese government to invite him before the next election, he rushed through the hideously flawed FIPA deal.
Which places us in bondage to that country's sinister commie/capitalist conglomerate for at least the next 31 years.
A deal so bad even the Con columnist Diane Francis compared it to the infamous one Neville Chamberlain made with Hitler...
And now like Chamberlain, Harper is left with a lousy deal. And thanks to the Hong Kong protests also left in an uncomfortable situation.
For if Great Freedom Fighter Leader speaks up for democracy, like he does in places like Ukraine while strangling it at home, his Chinese hosts will disinvite him.
So he will have sold us out for NOTHING.
Not even a lousy photo-op...
As bad as they might have been.
And if he doesn't speak out, even if the Chinese regime cracks down in its usual brutal manner, he will not be seen as a Great Strong leader.
Just a hapless stooge...
So I don't think we can lose eh?
Here's to the Umbrella Revolution...
And all those amazing young people who are bravely defying the Chinese regime.
Doing their best to shake-up the corrupt established order, as so many others are trying to do all over the world.
And who inspire me so much...
Even when they fail.
Because as I like to say as we continue this long journey together to get OUR Canada back...
The future does belong to us.
Today it's the turn of others.
Tomorrow it will be OUR turn...
