The other night I wrote about Stephen Harper's disgusting attack on Tom Mulcair and Justin Trudeau at a Con BBQ at the Calgary Stampede.
Where he accused both leaders of being terrorist stooges, claimed they were out of it, that we were all in terrible danger of being beheaded in our beds or drowned in cages. And that only he could save us.
Which needless to say was simply appalling, and made me question his sanity again. And whether he's still fit to remain in office.
But what I didn't know was that ghastly performance was followed by another.

For years they have had to endure the pain of austerity. Look on helplessly as their jobs disappeared, and their pensions shrank.
But still the cruel and greedy banksters wanted to impose even more austerity upon them. And humiliate them further for daring to elect a left-wing government.
But today the Greek people finally rose up and said enough is enough.
Well I've got to hand it to Tom Mulcair and Justin Trudeau. Our two cowboys at the Calgary Stampede.
They're timing couldn't be more perfect, or depending on your point of view, more unfortunate.
For on the very same day they vowed they wouldn't attack Stephen Harper like he attacks them.
He attacked BOTH of them like a rabid animal.
A few days ago I wrote a post about how Stephen Harper was turning the RCMP into Harper's police.
Just another tool in his campaign to try to win the next election.
Now please stand to attention, kiss our democracy goodbye.
And salute Harper's Army.
A few days ago I wrote a post defending Tom Mulcair from a Maclean's story that claimed that he once asked Stephen Harper for a chance to serve him.
And only turned down the job because he wasn't offered enough money.
Having watched Mulcair in the Quebec National Assembly long before he entered federal politics, something about that story didn't seem right.
And sure enough it seems it was just a grotesque smear.

Well there he was in this PMO picture, at the Calgary Stampede in his black bad guy cowboy hat, framed between a horse and a horse's ass.
Watching the parade and trying to put on a brave face, or smile like a winner. Or at least open his mouth and show his teeth.
But it couldn't have been easy. Not with Rachel Notley, the new sheriff of Alberta, riding triumphantly past him...
He must have had lockjaw by the time that was over eh?
And of course the latest EKOS poll didn't exactly make him want to stand up and shout "Yee haw or hee haw I'm still a Great Leader !!!!

As you may remember, when I last dropped in on Pierre Poilievre, I found him wandering around at a clothing sale in an Ottawa hockey arena.
Making a vanity video, desperately trying to buy votes with the Con's so-called Universal Child Care Benefit.
And even more desperately trying to do something, ANYTHING, to try to fix his terrible popularity problem.
But since that was never going to work. They don't call him Pee Wee or Dickhead for nothing eh?
I see he's taken his desperate search for love to a whole new and low level.

In my last post I showed you yet another example of how Stephen Harper is trying to militarize our culture.
By having such gentle and iconic Canadian traditions like the RCMP Musical Ride, compete in the same arena with a sinister SWAT show...
Complete with armoured cars, explosions, and even a prisoner to carry off in handcuffs.
And yesterday's Canada Day show on Parliament Hill was more of the same. With more soldiers and police officers than you could count. A twenty-one gun salute.
And this thundering message from Great Warrior Leader.

Well as you know, Stephen Harper has turned the RCMP into the Harper Police.
And sadly the Musical Ride isn't what it once was.
Is there no place now where Canadians can be spared the Conservative government’s jingoistic militaristic bleating with its conjured-up images of dangers lurking around every corner, nurturing the fear that “others” are out to rob us of our freedoms?”
But every now and then the Mounties still do get their man.
It's Canada Day in Harperland in the grim year of 2015. And I must admit I'm finding it hard to find a reason to celebrate, or find words to express how I feel.
For it has been a grim year, and think I said what I wanted to say about Canada, in this post the other day.
How I once thought of this big beautiful country as a magical place.
But now I don't recognize it.
