Harper hysteria a sign of closed liberal minds #elxn42

“…Nothing infuriates the critics more – and this is where their slip shows – than his success at usurping the political tools their side once used to corner the market. He’s turned the Liberals’ invention of multiculturalism against them. He’s wooed suburban couples with kids away from the Liberals with an array of dubiously useful family-friendly tax credits.

The truth is, Mr. Harper does not play to his base any more than the NDP’s Mr. Mulcair or the Liberals’ Mr. Trudeau play to theirs. But because elites in the media and academe have deemed Conservative supporters a less evolved species than the progressive subclass to which they themselves belong, they are beside themselves at the loss of their own influence.”


This is as good an article as Harper can hope it gets from our MSM.

  • Maurixio Garciasanchez

    He needs to buy more votes with new programs , to wash people’s brain so they can vote for him or set up a new robocalls to confused people in election day .

    • BillyHW

      Are you the sort that would get confused by a robocall Maurixio?

      • David Murrell

        Maurixio is someone who would be confused by any paragraph longer than one sentence.

        • Maggat

          Try two words!

    • mauser 98

      Maxi …..you know confused

    • jayme

      What is helping Harper now in that case is the left supports voter fraud.

    • robins111

      Maxi, there’s no need for robo-call. just be assured that your polling station is in the Moosonee Legion, just like last time,
      I know its a 3 day trip, but getting rid of that mean old Harper is worth it.

      I just go a robocall from Justin inviting me to a rally to kill babies with abortions to join “Real Change”.

    Konrad Yakabuski won his senior writer’s status, at the Globe, as the chief Globe U.S. correspondent, where he covered the first Obama campaign in 2008. Then, as with all liberal journalists, Mr. Konrad bootlicked Obama with each and every article he penned. Given his slavish pro-Obama prose, Yakabuski moved up the Globe ranks. However during the past year, he has written an occasional essay from a conservative point of view.

    I didn’t bother reading the “readers’ comments’ beneath this piece, but one can assume that Mr. Konrad is one hated man about now. As well, John Ibbitson (a rare person at the Globe with an open mind) has written a book about Harper:

    a book that actually depicts Harper as a human being (an idea verboten amongst our corrupt media). So Mr. Yakauski and Ibbitson must be in the bad books at the Globe, a newspaper not known for intelligent, open-minded journalism. Look for both to be given the heave-ho soon.

      David, you are 110% right on about the Comments.

    • Ironically, the comments confirm his points about the mass hysteria against Harper. Some present the abolishment of the long-form census as some sort of national tragedy.

      • Maggat

        Yes amazing. I just cannot figure out how the gov’t and long form census counting the number of toilets I have in my house, out here in BC, can possibly help the gov’t of NB understand how their war with poverty is going.

        • Alain

          LOL Isn’t that something?

        • Minicapt

          Because, for some in New Brunswick, toilets are an aspiration.

    That was a reasonably fair assessment of Harper: as the author notes, Harper has governed from the center and thereby pissed off a good portion of actual conservatives. True enough. However, I disagree with his assessment that “the hysterics won’t have Harper to kick around any more.”

    Progressives and Leftists will continue to criticize him and blame him for miscellaneous problems long after he’s gone: we have the example of Mike Harris who apparently is still held responsible for the energy mess in Ontario, however many years after he left office. And people screaming obscenities at Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. Yep, the Left are a civilized, rational group, aren’t they?

    • andycanuck

      Yes, Alex.

      The MSM managed to make Bush Jr a fascist-conservative boogeyman when he’s always been a moderate squish.

    • Waffle

      Good thing you pointed that out. Actually, this kind of thing goes way back. When I studied the Spanish Inquisition I learned that people deemed to be heretics and who had not undergone and the tortures and punishment of the Holy Office were dug up from the graves and burned. Decendents were shamed for centuries! It probably goes back before the Inquisition. There is little new under the sun, as they say.

    Another depraved Toronto media hit piece on Harper. So-called elites in the media and academia are craven progressive perverts and it shows by the corrupt leaders they support.

    • Clausewitz

      The progressives are always claiming that Harper is trying to; enslave us, lie to us, is the most corrupt government ever, but when you ask for evidence they become suspiciously quiet like they have nothing to back up their claims. I’m guessing they finally figured out the “hidden agenda” tripe is not getting them anywhere, so they are on to “Lies Pierre Trudeau told to me mark II”.

    • Alain

      All this is a real indication of just how they are running scared shitless that he will win this election.

    ‘Somehow when it comes to critiquing Mr. Harper, all perspective gets thrown out the window.’

    Because perspective goes out the window when people succumb to their delusions.
