Calgary Sun newspaper column, 2001
“You have to remember that west of Winnipeg the ridings the Liberals hold are dominated by people who are either recent Asian immigrants or recent migrants from eastern Canada; people who live in ghettos and are not integrated into Western Canadian society.”
An interesting view by our Harper. “Speaking as head of the National Citizens Coalition, 1998
“Human rights commissions, as they are evolving, are an attack on our fundamental freedoms and the basic existence of a democratic society. It is in fact totalitarianism. I find this is very scary stuff.””
So, I assume, he was attacking gay/lesbian rights, among others, as totalitarianism in countries looking to promote a society free from the prejudices of evangelicalism and church control over their schools. I should note the Christian/Conservative actions in Manitoba as evidence of the prejudicial ignorance of some churches and quite a few conservative politicians.
I must remind everyone that not all churches are anti-gay/lesbian etc and the Asper Campus school promotes these rights well before the Manitoba legislation was developed to help free up our schools from gender prejudices through promoted friendships.
If we were to follow the impoverished ideals of the Harper Reform Conservatives in a historical context we’d be ripe with racism throughout our provinces and it would be allowed upon our streets and our shops and it would be ‘back of the bus’, with vile looks by too many having the freedom to behave in cruel and ridiculous manners.
“Interview with Terry O’Neill of BC Report newsmagazine, 1999
“This government’s only explanation for not standing behind our allies is that they couldn’t get the approval of the Security Council at the United Nations – a body [on] which Canada doesn’t even have a seat.””
Way back in 1999 our Harper a nothing but disdain for the United Nations and would rather follow the USA into war than to look for peaceful solutions. Today, most of us cannot deny the cruel actions by the USA in its wars that our Harper would have followed into simple because the warmonger nation down south goes to war based on lies created to trick the so easily trick nation of the USA.
Today Harper and Baird have shown their disgust toward the UN and the vetoes in the Security Council blocking war. It has not dawned at all upon these two nit-wits that these wars in Iraq – first by GHW Bush and then by GW Bush (both wars based upon obvious and not so obvious lying from the presidents etc.) and attempted manipulation of the UN were illegal wars and therefore War Crimes.
“Speech to a Montreal meeting of the Council for National Policy, June 1997
“[Y]our country [the USA], and particularly your conservative movement, is a light and an inspiration to people in this country and across the world.””
I really don’t know why our Harper, way back then, didn’t get his green card and exit with his reform conservative baggage to the USA. Of course, not have been in the real workforce very much, may have been his downfall as the proven ability to hold down a job is a requirement to becoming a US citizen. Also, this begs the question: How did our Harper become a millionaire of $5 million plus having been mostly a politician?
It seems that the ‘light and inspiration’ of the USA is a figment of Harper’s most bizarre imagination. A full line of presidents bent upon the ‘lies that lead to war’ and a macho murder machine killing and causing to be killed thousands upon thousands of people because of ‘American Interests’ (ie: oil, power, continuous war).
So, becoming more and more Americanized is the basic ideal of our Harper and his inane side-kick Baird.
