Stephen Harper's Horribly Tacky and Disturbing Christmas Message
Well I knew that Stephen Harper's Christmas Message was up against some tough competition.
And I knew that he would do his best to try to look as non threatening and non-partisan as the Queen, in his new role as Great Kinder Gentler Leader, the benevolent ruler of Canada.
But unfortunately for him, he just couldn't pull it off. It wasn't even close. The Queen's show was at least classy, and suitably christmassy.
While Harper's Christmas Message was horribly tacky, profoundly pathetic, and deeply disturbing.
In his annual Christmas message, Prime Minister Stephen Harper asks Canadians to pray for members of the military as they battle Islamic extremists in northern Iraq.
Harper said Canadians are doing what they are known for -- "protecting the vulnerable, promoting peace, and defending the freedom of all people."
Tacky, because only Stephen Harper would use a Christmas Message to try to whip up war fever, just because it helped give him a big boost in the polls.
But is now slowly fading...
Along with his polls.
So he needs to kick it up a notch. Praise the baby Jesus and pass the ammunition !!!
Pathetic, because only he could turn a Christmas Message into another squalid Porky Action Plan ad.
On the economy, Harper said that "despite the difficulties elsewhere in the world," more Canadians have more opportunities and better jobs than at any time in the country's history.
Even though the only reason there are more jobs now than at any time in history is because there are more Canadians than ever before. So he's using a Christmas message to scam Canadians like a Con artist.
When there aren't enough good jobs. He isn't creating any, he's been killing them for years. His tarry dreams are tanking.
And he's no Great Economist Leader...
Just a shabby Con trying to buy an election with OUR money.
But what I find most disturbing about Harper's Christmas message is that he still seems to think he can fool Canadians into believing that he is a caring compassionate man.
Harper also said that while we live in a beautiful, compassionate and prosperous country, we should "show kindness to the less fortunate" in the spirit of Christmas.
Which can only mean he must really think we're fools eh? Or he's finally gone over the deep end.
Because there has never been a less compassionate government, or a less kinder and more morally depraved leader.
And when 60 percent of the population is either angry or discouraged with him...
And even the Globe Editorial Board, which endorsed him so enthusiastically before the last election, now wonders whether he is a liability.
The Prime Minister is not someone you want as a friend, politically-speaking, and much less someone you’d want as an enemy. He fights ruthlessly and without remorse. He dumps inconvenient allies, sows division with abandon, treats Parliament with contempt and works 24/7 to control what Canadians know and hear about him, usually through the hearty application of muzzles and misdirection.
But, in 2014, the Prime Minister’s bloody-mindedness began to feel like a liability. With him as leader, the party has consistently trailed Justin Trudeau’s kinder, gentler Liberals in the polls in spite of the country’s relatively stable economy. If the Conservatives under Mr. Harper lose the general election next fall, this year may be remembered as the one when Canadians, including members of the Conservative Party, decided their leader’s ruthlessness was no longer worth the cost.
He must surely see where this one is going.
The writing is on the wall, and that's why he is looking and sounding so desperate. Or slowly going crazy.
And why his nightmare Christmas show looked to me a lot like this one...
Like the last desperate act of a Con Zombie, caught in the headlights of history.
Time is his enemy, he's been around for too long.
He can't change who he is. We know him too well.
And his monstrous act will soon be over...
