The Horror of Gaza and the Crimes of Stephen Harper

3 hours 7 min ago

The situation in couldn't be bleaker or more horribly symbolic.

The brutal Israeli assault on Gaza continues.

The lights have gone out. 

Efforts to end the violence are going nowhere. 

And Stephen Harper's Middle East policy couldn't be less helpful or more criminal.

Stephen Harper and the Baby Killers

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 16:56

He is a man who lost his moral compass a long time ago, if he ever had one.

He is a liar, a bully, a cheat, a grubby little dictator.

But at least he won't be able to pose as Mother Harper anymore. As he was doing just two months ago when he hosted this summit. 

Not when he's ordered his stooges at Revenue Canada to go after organizations like Oxfam...

And of course, not when he is cheering on Benjamin Netanyahu and his ghastly baby killers.

Stephen Harper and the Never Ending War on Women

Sun, 07/27/2014 - 18:53

I always knew Stephen Harper was going to be a terrible Prime Minister, when somebody who knew him well told me he thought he owned the truth.

But I only realized how dangerous he was when the very first thing he did when he was elected was declare war on women.

By ordering his minions to erase the words "women's equality" from every document on the Status of Women.

And now he's done it again.

Rob Ford's Totally Disgusting Bigot Fest

Sun, 07/27/2014 - 03:37

He is in addition to all his other flaws, a ghastly anti-gay bigot. 

And so it seems are many members of the Ford Nation.

For when six gay activists turned up at the so-called Ford Fest to protest against his vicious homophobia.

This is what happened...

Stephen Harper and the Winds of Freedom

Sat, 07/26/2014 - 05:03

On a sunny afternoon in Edinburgh, in a city where the old and the new work together so well.

In a country with a record of resistance going back more than a thousand years.

Where the words "for freedom" can still excite a crowd.

I have to admit that grubby old Harperland never seemed so faraway.

Even if the stench of its grotesque leader still shames us in the eyes of the world.

Stephen Harper and the Perfect Storm that Will Defeat Him

Tue, 07/22/2014 - 02:40

He has yet to comment on the latest twist in the Duffy scandal. But in his shadowy bunker Stephen Harper must be feeling the heat.

For by now even he must realize that the writing is on the wall.

And that he could soon be sweating in a witness box.

Trying to explain under oath what Nigel Wright meant when he said that Harper had told him the deal to pay off Duffy was "good to go."

The leader of a tired, increasingly unpopular government with nowhere to go but down.

The Con Regime Goes After Pen Canada

Mon, 07/21/2014 - 21:35

We always knew he was the most disgusting bully this country has ever seen.

We knew that he was using Revenue Canada to try to intimidate his political opponents.

Or anyone who disagreed with the foul policies of his depraved regime.

And now that monstrous political thug is going after Pen Canada.

Stephen Harper and the Scandal that Will Destroy Him

Sun, 07/20/2014 - 02:48

Well there I was today in the north of Scotland, when I thought I saw a mysterious creature in this little bay.

At first I thought it was another kind of Nessie. Or a big fat dolphin.

But then I realized it wasn't eh?

It was only Moby Duff...

Getting ready to dive dive dive !!!!  And take down  Stephen Harper.

Scottish Independence and the Search for the New Left

Thu, 07/17/2014 - 02:03

OK. So it's probably not the best time to leave Canada. Not in the middle of that tragically short warm period we call summer in the Great White North.

But politically it's the dead season here, or even deader than usual.

While in Scotland where I'm going, it's very much alive.

The Con Apocalypse and the Humbling of Stephen Harper

Wed, 07/16/2014 - 03:35

As you may remember, I was deeply troubled by Stephen Harper's wild diatribe at the Calgary Stampede BBQ almost two weeks ago.

I couldn't decide whether he had inhaled the fumes of his own propaganda, like Rob Ford sucks on a crack pipe.

Or was lying compulsively. Again.

Or whether inflamed by the sight of all those cowboy hats, he had finally gone off the deep end.
