Canada didn't get stolen by Prime Minister Stephen Harper
...Can’t tell you how often on Facebook I’ve seen some variant of this posted: “We have to take our country back!”
Seriously? How did Stephen Harper steal your country?
Let’s run through the arguments.
1. The New York Times doesn’t respect us anymore. Well … good.
2. We don’t do a lot of UN peacekeeping. I would argue the UN — at best a noble failed experiment, at worst a corrupt body whose primary task is promoting hatred for Jews on the world stage — isn’t worth anybody’s time.
As for the efficacy of peacekeeping, I refer you to the Rwandan genocide.
3. Harper won’t give government employees the unfettered ability to communicate with the public unsupervised. If you work for a big oil company downtown, are you allowed to call a press conference to discuss global warming whenever you feel like it?
Didn’t think so.
4. Harper doesn’t like the CBC. Well … who the hell does? It’s not 1955 anymore and genuine Canadian voices in the culture — like Trailer Park Boys — are doing just fine on Netflix, thank you very much.
