Stephen Harper's Depraved Attempt to Revive the Terrorist Menace
As you know Stephen Harper and Jason Kenney made a surprise visit to Iraq, to try to whip up interest in the Great War on Terror.
Which has been flagging badly as the days get warmer and most Canadians tune it out.
And as the war fever fades, so do fears about the Great Terrorist Menace.
Especially since the ISIS crazies have yet to attack us, despite all Harper and Kenney have done to provoke an attack, by blowing hot air out of every orifice...
So the Cons are now so desperate they're going after Omar Khadr. Again.
Lawyers for the federal government will bring an emergency motion before Alberta’s Court of Appeal Tuesday morning in an attempt to stop the release of former Guantanamo detainee Omar Khadr.
A spokesperson for Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney confirmed late Sunday that Ottawa will seek what’s known as a stay in proceedings, which would stop the bail order and keep Khadr detained until the government can argue its appeal.
Which couldn't be more disgusting. Because first they announced that they would appeal the decision to grant him bail, but could give no sound legal reasons.
Now they're declaring an emergency, and trying to get a stay based on a claim that he threatens the safety of Canadians.
A single Court of Appeal Justice needs to be convinced of three factors to issue the stay, the most contentious being whether the release of the 28-year-old would cause “irrevocable harm.”
Even though that young Canadian is no threat to anyone, is a model prisoner, has suffered long enough, and should have been released from jail a long time ago.
But then Harper is desperate. The Duffy scandal is closing in on him.
His smoke and mirrors budget isn't boosting his poll numbers.
He's NOT going to ride the economy to a new majority...
Because it's going nowhere.
So he needs the terrorism issue badly.
And if he can't get a real Muslim terrorist to scare Canadians, he'll paint Khadr as the Great Terrorist Menace, and use that to pleasure his rabid bloodthirsty base.
Who as you know want a piece of him...
And so appalling is Harper's continuing persecution of Khadr that it can only be described as sadism.
And one really has to wonder whether he's still mentally fit to remain in office.
Or whether he has inherited the vindictiveness of his first ancestor, Christopher Harper. Who has you may know, had to be forcibly removed from office.
He had risen to the post of justice of the peace by the time a judicial inquiry found him guilty of, as one historian put it, "violent and oppressive measures" - vindictive to a point beyond all reason.
For Stephen Harper's persecution of Omar Khadr fits that pattern exactly. It's deeply disturbing.
And at a time when he is preparing to pass his infamous Bill C-51, which would give him new powers to go after his enemies. ..
Canadians need to ask themselves whether ANYONE could trust a man as vindictive as that?
And by the time the election arrives, and we've raised that disturbing question over and over again, I think I know what their answer will be.
The man is a dangerous maniac, a political pervert, and a sadist.
And if we are to be spared his depraved vindictiveness.
He must be removed from office, like his ancestor.
As soon as is humanly possible...
