Harper 2.0

28 May

Newly elected Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer is Stephen Harper 2.0.

He’s ostensibly socially conservative, yet considers abortion and gay marriage settled and won’t let his personal opinions on such matters influence his policies.

But he’s fully neo-con / Zionist warmongering; wants Canada to step up and help smash ISIS.

In short, he’s just like Stephen Harper, except he smiles more.

On the plus side, the libertarian Max Bernier didn’t win; nor did the crypto-anti-monarchist Erin O’Toole.

Kudos to Kellie Leitch, for raising ‘national question’ / immigration issues that no-one else would touch. Perhaps they’ll have a better champion in the future; we can pray…

    He is not perfect, but his opposition to carbon pricing is hopefully a sign that he is not one of the Man Made Global Warming Believers and when PM, he will pull us out of any carbon accords. Plus, he voted against Bill C-16, which may hopefully translate into disbanding the Human Rights Tribunal one day.

      Oh, certainly, he has some good points, and those are good indeed; I also rather like his desire to make university access to federal funds contingent upon them allowing a diversity of speakers to be heard. Whether he can practically implement that, though, remains to be seen. I’ll be disappointed if, as with Trump, and every other First World country politician thus far, it turns out to be meaningless rhetoric, not intended to be implemented or not able to be because of the entrenchment of the deep state, and an unwillingness to fire the lot of them and start afresh, draining the swamp…

    So, will everyone now FINALLY admit that “there is no political solution?”

      No; alas, feeriker, there will always be the naïve among us who think all can be solved by just electing the right man…
