Uh oh. Now we really are at war again. The ominous signs are unmistakable.
The CF-18s are on the way to the Middle East.
To save us from the ISIS hordes that would behead us in our beds. Or mow us down in a Tim Horton's parking lot.
Because you're not safe anywhere eh? And even if you arrest them you can't stop them.
The dreaded Threat Level, which I didn't even know existed, is glowing yellow.
And in the Seventh Sign of the Apocalypse, Stephen Harper has just fired another missile out of his rear orifice, in the general direction of Justin Trudeau...
Which tells us all we need to know about what this exercise is all about. It's just a grotesque attempt to use fear to win votes. And use Justin Trudeau's CF-18 comment against him.
Even though the new attack ad couldn't be more misleading.
A quote from a Kelly McParland column in the National Post leaves out a part of a sentence that softens the criticism.
A headline taken from QMI declares "Opposition to Iraq mission bizarre." However, the column criticizes the NDP as well as the Liberals and does not mention Trudeau by name even once.
It not only twists Lawrence Martin's words, it leaves out some important information:
The Tories may also not want Canadians to look too closely at Martin's column. Though the writer is critical of Trudeau's stance on the Iraq mission, he also states that "Mr. Harper can be faulted for shamelessly trying to play the fear card in suggesting there is a direct threat to Canada from Islamic State." Not exactly unequivocal support for the prime minister.
And despite Harper's attempts to whip the CF-18 comment into a major issue...
As only that depraved leader could.
According to a new Abacus poll most Canadians agree with Justin...
And in my humble opinion this is the real threat
Jenni Byrne, the deputy chief of staff to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, has been chosen to lead the Conservative party’s national campaign in next year’s federal election.
Because with that PMO attack
And that the election could still come sooner rather than later.
But what I found most interesting about this latest attack ad is that it stole the staircase scene from one the Cons ran FOUR years ago.
As well as the absurd notion that in a dangerous world we need Stephen Harper to protect us...
Which tells me that the young fanatics in the PMO are already out of ideas.
Or that they are too tired, too crazy, too desperate, to think about anything but saving their cult leader. Like bees in a hive guarding their queen.
Or that they find that image of Harper wearily climbing the steps deeply SYMBOLIC.
As well they might, considering how low they are in the polls...
And the way the Anyone But Harper trend just keeps gaining momentum.
Support for the Conservatives has been off the party’s 2011 score by a significant margin for more than a year. Over that time the anybody-but-Harper trend has gained momentum. Until now it had been widely assumed that if and when the Liberals faltered, Conservative fortunes would recover. But when Trudeau tripped last month it was Mulcair and not Harper that got a bit of a hand up.
Or maybe it's just that subconsciously at least, they too realize that this horror movie is going to end badly.
Like it did for poor Martin Balsam in the movie Psycho. You know, the movie Harperland was modelled after.
When after climbing all those steps in that creepy mansion, he had a fatal encounter with Tony Perkins.
And went flying down the stairs backwards...
As Stephen Harper also will, after his painful encounter with the ugly TRUTH...
Which is, that NOTHING will save him now. Not even fear or his Big Lies.
He's just not up to the job eh?
His time is almost over.
And he is going down...
