Stephen Harper and the Con's New Bigot Offensive
Well now we know for sure. Now there is no longer any doubt. Stephen Harper will use bigotry to try to win the next election.
He is that desperate, and that crazy.
He will not not call off his bloodthirsty hounds.
The Conservatives are seeking to throw up another roadblock to a Muslim woman's quest to be able to vote in October. The government announced Friday it will seek a stay of a Federal Court of Appeal decision this week that would have allowed Zunera Ishaq to wear a niqab while swearing the oath of citizenship.
He will have his pound of flesh.
And now he's launched another bigot offensive to try to divide Canadians.
University of Ottawa professor Duff Conacher said he was shocked by what he considers racist implications of the phrase “old stock Canadians” used by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Thursday’s leadership debate.
And it couldn't be more disgusting or more deeply disturbing.
Harper used the phrase “old stock Canadians” in response to a question on refugee policy. The Conservative leader said he would “bring in more” refugees than in past years, but there is a limit, adding that “we do not offer them a better health-care plan than the ordinary Canadian can receive.”
Because not only is this foul campaign based on a monstrous lie. Sick refugees get exactly the same level of medical care as we do.
It is a deliberate attempt to create an us versus them mentality.
Conservative leader Stephen Harper's line about "old-stock Canadians" during the Thursday leaders' debate was a deliberate move to energize the Conservative base on an emotional topic, a pollster says.
"It's part of the deliberate strategy to sort Harper's constituency from the rest of the electorate," Graves told CBC Montreal's Daybreak. "It creates a sense of us versus others."
And it could only come from the diseased mind of Stephen Harper's Australian attack dingo, or flying monkey, Lynton Crosby...
Who has never seen a wedge issue he didn't like, no matter how low or disgusting.
Who has no doubt discovered that many Canadians aren't as virtuous as they like to imagine they are.
And knows that he can count on others to spread his poison, like the Bloc is doing in Quebec, by running this ghastly ad...
Where the narrator says Thomas Mulcair wants to allow veiled woman to take the citizenship oath. "It's the last drop ( the last straw) I'm going back to the Bloc."
So don't for a moment think that Stephen Harper is on the defensive.
Stephen Harper found himself on the defensive Friday, dogged by a controversial phrase from the leaders’ debate and his government’s efforts to prevent a Muslim woman from taking the citizenship oath while wearing a niqab.
On the contrary, he welcomes this controversy. He believes it's got traction.
His position on refugee health care is “supported by Canadians, who themselves are immigrants and also supported by the rest of us, by Canadians who have been the descendants of immigrants for one or more generations,” Harper said.
The refugee threat, the niqab menace, the Fear Factor...
“When you join the Canadian family in a public citizenship ceremony it is essential that that is a time when you reveal yourselves to Canadians and that is something widely supported by Canadians.”
He knows the more the MSM covers the story, the more the poison might spread.
And he is desperately hoping that it might give him the votes he needs to scratch out another bloody majority.
And the good news? All of that strongly suggests that the best way to blunt this bigot offensive is to deprive it of the oxygen it needs to grow.
Or the red meat it needs to survive...
By driving the focus of this campaign back to other issues where Harper is vulnerable, like the economy, or the corruption of his rotting regime.
While letting the simmering anger of those who are not "old stock" and now feel like refugees in their own country, tear him to pieces.
But yes, he is dangerous, he is trying to start a bigot blaze....
He is the foulest leader this country has ever known.
He is a beast, he is a monster.
And if he is not stopped, he will set this country on fire...
