Why Stephen Harper's Porky Ads Threaten Our Democracy
We know that Stephen Harper is spending hundreds of millions of dollars of OUR money to try to brainwash us into thinking that he's a Great Leader.
We know that those porky ads are nothing but propaganda to try to bribe voters.
As this excerpt from his latest YouTube channel production, starring the oily Con man Joe Oliver, makes only too clear...
But what every Canadian also needs to know is that these ads are not just sleazy and immoral. They are also an assault on the rule of law.
In what country does a government take tax revenues and use it to pump out continuous government propaganda that tries to brainwash the citizens with its performance, whether truthful or not? Many would suggest China, Russia or even Zimbabwe. Sadly, it is also true in the Canada governed by the Stephen Harper Conservatives.
For as Errol Mendes points out, not only are ads like these outrageously partisan...
When these ads announce that it will fill the pockets of taxpayers with thousands of dollars, it’s a less-than-honest exhortation for viewers to vote Conservative in the upcoming 2015 election.
They abuse the political process and undermine our democracy.
Governments are allowed to advertise about services and programs that they are implementing, but when some of them are either untruthful, promote partisan positions or are not even authorised by Parliament, it becomes a vehicle to undermine the foundations of any democracy that values the spirit and letter of the rule of law.
While shamelessly recruiting the gullible to serve his sinister purposes...
And what bothers me the most is that the progressive parties are allowing Harper and foul Con cult to get away with MURDER.
If such democratic subterfuge has the same effect of unfairness before an election, then the Harper government is clearly undermining the spirit of the rule of law critical to fair elections. He has, in effect, made the government a third party that is allowed to spend potentially millions of dollars, making the actual limits in the election period illusory to some extent. This deserves a profound rebuke by Canadians.
By not making a bigger issue out of that grotesque attempt to brainwash Canadians.
And not making their own ads to counter his dishonest propaganda. As I tried to do in this humble video.
By using his own words against him...
Because not challenging his porky propaganda could be a fatal mistake.
For those ads may appear crude, but they are actually very sophisticated. They are focus tested to the max. And unless they are challenged or countered they will have an impact.
He will get away with it. He will brainwash the gullible.
And unless we deploy the truth aggressively against him, the Big Lie will RULE.
And he will steal the next election and kill our country FOREVER...
