I tried to put it off as long as I could, I was having too much of a good time to spoil it.
Humming Christmas tunes, fixing one of my little robots, and playing with my neighbour's puppy.
But eventually I figured I better check out Peter Mansbridge's interview with Stephen Harper. And oh boy did that ruin my evening.
Because it was an absolute HORROR show.
Not just because Harper looked like death warmed over. With even several thick coats of make-up unable to conceal his desperate state, or the bags under his eyes.
And not just because he told Mansbridge he wants to keep his job so he can keep changing Canada beyond recognition:
I think we’ve got the country on the right track but I’d like to take some more time to really put it on that track in a very permanent way.
Even though that did send a shiver down my spine, because it's now clear that he does intend to cling to power, like a remora clings to a shark's belly.
And if he thinks this country is on the right track, we're in big trouble, and he must be out of his mind.
But what really bothered me was when he was asked whether he still believed that climate change was the biggest threat to the future of humanity and he replied like this:
I think it’s a significant threat. Geez, where does it rank in terms of our economic challenges, in terms of the Jihadism that we now face globally. It’s still a big threat.
BUT NOT NECESSARILY THE BIGGEST THREAT.
I don’t know about that. I mean since then we’ve had the global recession and we’ve had the rise, you know, the kind of second phase rise of the, of the global terrorist movement so I would put those up there as well.
Because anyone who believes that a horde of hairy religious fanatics pose a greater threat to this planet than climate change is as deranged as they are.
And this also had me questioning his sanity.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper disappeared into a caucus room closet during the Parliament Hill attack on Oct. 22 in order to ensure Canada had a functioning government in the event of a catastrophic attack.
Because this is outrageous:
Harper said while some of his colleagues feared for their lives, as prime minister he lived the experience a little differently. "As prime minister I have access to obviously all the government's intelligence, all security risks that are faced by the country and by me personally, so you're in a different headspace than most people who are suddenly facing this situation for the first time," the prime minister said.
And this is laughable...
Harper would not say whether he was frightened by the incident, saying instead he doesn't like to talk about himself and that he has received "training" from the RCMP. He said the training consists primarily of drills that are meant to simulate this type of event.
But what is even more disturbing, is what he said in a French-language interview on the TVA network.
Stephen Harper says the two men with jihadist sympathies who launched separate attacks in Quebec and on Parliament Hill might not have been acting in isolation.
"It's possible that there were other people who were around these men. And there's been an arrest in Montreal, as we've already announced." Harper was referring to the recent arrest of a 15-year-old boy who had allegedly robbed a convenience store in order to participate in terrorist activities. The youth had allegedly been in contact with Couture-Rouleau through Facebook.
Because if he's trying to use the case of that Montreal teenager as evidence of a terrorist conspiracy, he's fishing in shallow waters, and should be arrested for fear mongering or FRAUD.
The reality of this case is that a confused 15-year-old boy allegedly held up a convenience store owner at knife-point. I’m sure that for those few moments he was being robbed, the victim was terrified, but no more so than any other victim of crime.
And simply having enough money for a flight does not make a plan to travel to the Middle East actionable. Because the boy is under the of age 16, he would not have been able to obtain the necessary passport or visas without parental consent.
And so should some in our shabby shuffling MSM.
Tagging this incident with a terrorist label, based upon what a 15-year-old fantasized he might do, gives this case a magnitude it does not deserve.
We are now dropping the word terror at every opportunity, and that only serves to frighten the population into believing we are all in imminent danger.
For hyping the terrorist threat, and helping Great Fearless Leader scare Canadians into voting for him...
While he turns this country into a sinister surveillance state, and his monstrous JUNGLE.
But then we knew that. We know what he wants to do, change Canada as he says, "in a very permanent way."
And I for one have seen all I need to see...
It's a joke, it's a nightmare. The man is crazy, and he is dangerous.
And in the name of safety and sanity.
He can't be defeated soon enough...
