Stephen Harper Bids Adieu

Mixed feelings, he wasn’t all bad but… IncreMENTALism was just plain mental.

He failed to sell off the CBC.

Failed to reign in the predatory public service unions which under PM Useful Idiot will rob us all blind in a mirror image of Two Mommies extortion racket in Ontario.

The Temporary Foreign Workers Program fiasco, an absolute betrayal of Canadians, happened under his watch.

Multiculturalism should have been tossed into the dustbin of history where it belongs, instead the conservatives attempted to use it like any other brokerage party with nothing much to show for it other than to reveal they were capable of talking out of both sides of their mouth at the same time.

Canada’s Muslim population was nearly doubled during the Conservative tenure… and we all know or should by now know that Islam’s vibrant diversity is costing this country billions per year to contain.

PM Useful Idiot will on the advice of his trainers make far more dramatic and far more damaging changes to Canada than any of the media spun horror stories Harper ever ventured, whether it’s how we vote or how we’re allowed to think count on Justin the Dim to inflict real damage.

The conservatives did defang the Kangaroo Court by getting rid of Section 13, but that was a private members bill.

On abortion, he paved the way for Justin’s normalization of the abattoir.

As for the “New Direction” the federal conservative party appears to be headed in – All the good luck and best wishes in the world won’t be enough to get you elected.

    until there is a Canadian version of Alt -right populist conservatism i will be avoiding supporting the present cuckservative party. I liked Steven Harper and believer he did the best he could . there is no replacement apparent yet.

    • FactsWillOut

      Funny, the libtards have no trouble pushing through abhorrent legislation, and the cucks doing “The best they can” can’t reverse it with a majority government. I call BS on that.

      • DD_Austin

        Libtards, cucks, we’re the dupes, there is only really one party
        you can vote any way you want, your still getting the same

        This is “Democracy”, pick whatever colour you like, the politcial
        vending machine only stocks Crush and that’s what your getting

        Whether you like it or not

        “If voting made any difference they wouldn’t let us do it.”
        Mark Twain (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910)

        • FactsWillOut

          I concur.

        • New Centurion

          You nailed it

      • There was lots that Harper failed to do but there was also a lot that he DID do.

        Nevertheless, our alternative is a creep and is in the back pocket of Gerald Butts.

        • FactsWillOut

          Tell me, what did he do to ensure Canadians rights would be protected.

          • First, tell me what Trudeau is doing.

            As in the US, we settle for second-rate.

            Harper did lead the charge for the Canadian Arctic, he managed to run a stable economy and was a friend to the only sane nation in the Middle East. Canada sat at the big-boy table.

            Now, it’s back to the kids’ table with Pierre’s idiot son.

            THAT is the reality.

            He was also infinitely more classy than that creep who skulks around shirtless boys and women.

            He didn’t sound like a dribbling idiot whenever he spoke nor did he clamour for attention like a child.

            Should I go on?

            No, he wasn’t perfect but our alternative is far worse than anything Harper could do or fail to do.

          • FactsWillOut

            That’s called the “tu quoque” logical fallacy, and is generally frowned upon in any debating format.

            Sheesh, toots, get with the program.

          • You’re repeating yourself on SDA.

            Tell me again how my rhetoric is wanting.

          • FactsWillOut

            Saying “He’s better than the Turd” is not a valid endorsement.
            GWB was shit, even though he was better than Clinton.

          • And now you have Trump, the real statesman.

            Did I say statesman?

            I meant showman.

            That’s politics.

            You can demand statesmen by voting for them, not moaning about a singular issue ad nauseam.

          • FactsWillOut

            You want polite little faggots.
            I want freedom, and folk who will fight for freedom.

          • Oh, do grow up.

            You’re the one who wants a real leader.

            But, please – strong-arm the House of Commons like a hero of the Revolutionary War. Let me know how it turns out.

          • FactsWillOut

            Whatever it takes.
            There are two sides, each uses the same tactics:
            One side wants folk to be free, the other does not.
            Harper was not on the side of freedom.

          • Then you’re stuck.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            I contend that nothing but a Trump could survive, let alone prosper, in this political climate.
            All the non-Trumps got filtered out or neutered into subservience.

          • Look at the political climate.

            Do you think that Clinton or Obama would get away with their crap had the electorate been discerning?

            That climate will still be there once Trump gets in.

            It’s an electorate that is wowed by bluster. It’s a miracle if anything gets done.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            No, I’m saying that all forms of mild mannered polite discourse are actively screened or shut-out in the selection process.
            Anything less than an armored bulldozer cannot survive on the GOP side of the fence.
            That’s not so much the voters but our own media that until recently, was believed by most Americans.
            Yeah, call us naïve.

          • That’s the problem.

            We’re even less than Spartans now.

    • Sadly Justin is illustrating what Harper should have done – act.

      • FactsWillOut

        He was “acting”.

  • FactsWillOut

    Good riddance. Don’t let bill C-68 or the CBC slam your sorry quisling ass on the way out, asshole.

  • SMC_BC

    You forgot, Harper could have put most of the pipeline alongside pipelines already in place. Where talks with First Nations were necessary, Harper could have at least made the same effort as Enbridge, who did an excellent job.

  • Daviddowntown

    So Stephen Harper was a useless piece of shit who did absolutely nothing right and we might as well have had a liberal government all along. Careful what you wish for people. Harper was a strong supporter of Israel and for that I will be forever thankful.

    • FactsWillOut

      He was hired to be a strong supporter of Canada. He failed in his mandated duty.
      If you feel that a nation’s leader’s role is to support foreign powers, you are no loyal Canadian.

      • Daviddowntown

        Thats fuckin rich buddy.

        • FactsWillOut

          No richer than loving a Canadian PM not for his work in Canada, but for his support of Israel.
          Do you know who has given Israel the most money over the last few years? Why, it’s Obama! How about that.
          Harper was neither fiscally nor socially conservative, nor did he make any inroads in protecting Canadians rights and freedoms.

          • Daviddowntown

            Basic human decency compels me to support Israel, the ancestral homeland of the Jews and the only place on earth where they can be truly safe. That may not resonate with you but I believe it did with Stephen Harper and for that I’m grateful.

          • FactsWillOut

            Don’t get me wrong, I’ll take Israel’s side over the savage muzz fakestinians every time. Being a resident of Canada, I’ll take Canada’s side over Israelis. The Harper government was left of center, spending money on leftist goals (like attracting more women into trucking), etc. He’s just a Saudi butt-boy like GWB was. If you are willing to be grateful to a leftist government because it happens to support some foreign policy cause you approve of, then I’m not too sure of your cred.

    • I speak only of his domestic record here. He was not all bad as I said but could have done much more.

      • factsWillOut

        His foreign policy decisions include “whipping out” F-18s and sending troops and materiel to help ISIS/Al-Qeada/jihadists beat Ghadaffi and Assad.

  • FactsWillOut

    Harper is a globalist, that’s why he helped hand Libya to ISIS, and supported Soros’ coup in the Ukraine.

  • Waffle

    As said previously, I will not join in the Harper bashing. He was a good man. Unfortunately, he — like the rest of us — underestimated the extent to which Trudeau the Elder’s poison had permeated Canadian society.

    We are f***d, kiddies. So suck it up and prepare for the coming tsunami. The other shoe hasn’t dropped yet. It’s hanging by a very thin thread.

    • FactsWillOut

      It’ll be like Venezuela, but with 30 below temps.
      Long pig, here we come!

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      The tsunami is called the housing bubble.
      It’s coming.

      • Waffle

        Did you hear Yellen today? She’s playing footsie about an interest rate hike.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          If the prime rate was to rise to the historical norm of five or six percent the housing market would not react well.
          When people renewed their mortgages they would have to requalify based on their ability to pay the higher monthly payment.
          A one percent increase on a balance of a hundred and twenty thousand is twelve hundred annually or one hundred monthly.
          Given that some people have multiples of that how much money will be hoovered out of the economy to pay for mortgages instead of swimming lessons, skating lessons, that friday night chicken dinner takeout or a trip to the movie theatre?
          And that’s even before people get so far down that they have to sell their home.
          When they do have to sell, who is going to buy?

          • Waffle

            The PM told his caucus yesterday to prepare for a bumpy road ahead. That’s probably an understatement. The road ahead is full of pot-holes (pun intended).

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            The CMHC has insured mortgages in excess of the national debt.
            They have five percent reserves on hand to deal with trouble.
            What happens when they go broke?

  • The Butterfly

    I can’t believe we traded him in for Justine.

    • FactsWillOut

      I voted for Harper.
      I got nothing but more of the same for my effort.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        Hey, CWB is gone.
        Gun registry is gone.
        You can’t get everything you want at once.
        And no, I’m not paraphrasing the Rolling Stones.
        They haven’t done anything decent since they released Let It Bleed.

        • Except Blinded By Rainbows which to me harkens back to their roots.

  • Imperfect man but an accomplished one.

    We are now witnessing how bad things can get.

    • FactsWillOut

      So, “not wrecking the country” is what you call an accomplishment?

      • How solid do you think “post-nationalist” Canada is now?

        • FactsWillOut

          Dogshit(Turdo) smell worse than horseshit. Saying Harper was good is serving me horseshit and calling it chocolate.

          • But you have to prove that he is crap.

            It seems you’ve come to the crux of the matter. Canada, like the US, has NO statesmen. You have Trump or Clinton.

            Great choices there.

            At least Harper gave it the old college try.

            If you want a statesman for Canada, go back in time and get Sir John A. MacDonald to run things.

          • FactsWillOut

            Majority governmet, C-68, still there, private property rights, non-existent, CBC, still getting a billion/year, muzz immigration doubled under his admin, helped hand Libya to jihadists, helped to try to hand Syria to jihadists, supported Soros coup in Ukraine….

          • You don’t have a problem with Putin’s taking over Ukraine.

            I guess a KGB agent’s globalism is better than Harper’s.

          • FactsWillOut

            I don’t have a problem with Canada taking Alaska, either.
            Stateist and static have the same root. Do you understand what that means?

          • As usual, hot gas.

            Let me know when the conversation is not so…. static.

          • FactsWillOut

            Do you have a problem with Canada taking Alaska by military force?

          • Why do we need to take Alaska?

            It already knows which country it really belongs to, anyway.
