I’m always looking for the interconnectedness in all things and well, this one seems glaringly obvious. But I decided to post it anyway.
PMS’s warmongering is connected to his disdain for progressive women. In his mind it’s ok for our soldiers to kill and be killed and it’s ok for 1 in 2 Canadian women to be assaulted in her lifetime. Why else would he kill funding for women’s organizations who lobby to changes to that stat? Why else would he piss on women?
And then, when an MP asks if Canada could negotiate a ceasefire in Afghanistan, why else would PMS call the question, despicable?
When Libby Davies, an NDP member for Vancouver, asked on Wednesday if Canada would try to get the Afghani government, the Pakistani government and the Taliban to negotiate a ceasefire so that stability and security could return to southern Afghanistan, Mr. Harper, promoter of decorum and decency, had this answer.
“This week we learned, sadly, of the deaths of Canadian soldiers….while they were in the process of building roads for the benefit of the population. Instead of expressing support for our soldiers and sympathy for their loved ones and for those they have lost, why does the NDP get up and ask despicable questions like that?”
Obviously, he has no interest in a peaceful resolution to the crisis in the Middle East. He is a misogynistic warmonger.

Status Report – Status of Women Canada/Condition Feminine CanadaStatus of Women Canada/Condition Feminine Canada, the federal agency responsible for funding womens groups in Canada, as well as conducting gender-based policy research, has just had its budget radically sliced up by the Conservative government. Its mandate has been altered so that it no longer includes the word “equality,” and as recently as this week, groups who receive funding through Status of Women Canada/Condition Feminine Canada are now no longer able to use those funds to do government lobbying.
But guess what Stephen Harper, the feminists are coming, and theyre pissed off.
Visit the newly created Status Report website for additional information.
And look out, Steve! Hallowe’en’s coming…witches will be after you!
