Stephen Harper and the Politics of Madness
Well so much for Great Strong Leader, who would try to brainwash into believing that all we need to do to feel safe is to trust our fate to HIM.
Trust that only HE can stop the terrorist hordes from beheading us in our beds.
And allow HIM to turn Canada into a police state.
So we can feel even safer...
But now it turns out you don't just need Great Leader to feel safe,
You also need a gun in the house.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper, after years of cautiously linking gun ownership to farmers and duck hunters, now says firearms are needed by rural Canadians for their own security so they can shoot people who pose a danger.
Because you know he can't protect everyone ALL the time...
But he can keep trying to turn Canada into that deranged shooting range called Amerika. Or keep encouraging Canadians to break the law.
Eric Gottardi, chair of the Canadian Bar Association’s criminal justice section, rejected the notion Monday evening that Canadians have the legal right to defend their homes with a gun.
“At 3 a.m., if someone is breaking into your house, you might think that your life is in danger. But the reality is that if it’s an unarmed intruder and you blow them away, you’re going to be arrested for murder.”
While he turns the country into some kind of crazy fascist jungle.
But then of course this latest campaign does come from Jenny Byrne.
Harper’s comments are being promoted by the Conservatives’ election campaign manager, who says she is “proud” of how Harper said gun ownership is “important for safety for those of us who live a ways from immediate police assistance.”
She is a beast...
Who is just trying to create another wedge issue to use against Justin Trudeau.
And her depraved leader is now so crazed that he is not only trying to scare people into voting for him. Or fanning the flames of bigotry.
He is as Lawrence Martin writes, also threatening to torch the country.
It’s hard to recall another time when we have witnessed such a flame-throwing approach to politics, policy and Parliament. Too often, the governing party resembles a band of belligerents rather than sage public servants. How many fights do they want to pick? Are they not concerned about the impact on the country’s social fabric, the dangers of pitting one Canadian against another?
He's out of control, he's not just whipping up the mob at home, he's inflaming tensions abroad.
Last week, James Bezan, parliamentary secretary to Defence Minister Jason Kenney, raised the ante with Russia, claiming that our navy was “confronted” by Russian warships and “buzzed” by fighter jets in the Black Sea. NATO officials said this was nonsense – that Russian vessels remained far off and that there was no buzzing.
The idea appears to be that if you provoke some kind of clash with Russia, you’ll get the patriotic juices flowing back home. More support for your party.
Because he doesn't care whether he sets Canada on fire, or whether he turns our country into a shooting range. Or even if he helps trigger the Third World War.
All he cares about is winning another bloody majority.
And for that alone, never mind all his other crimes against Canada, he has now proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is unfit to remain in office.
The depraved emperor is as I have portrayed him all along...
Crazy, desperate, diseased, and dangerous.
He's taking us to a very dark place.
And if this country is going to survive.
We can't defeat him soon enough...
