With words and images, Montreal Simon skewers Harper’s delusional self-promotion as Canada’s saviour

Will Canadians vote to follow Harper — into the abyss of their own creation?

“With an election call coming as early as Sunday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper is staking his claim as the best hope for Canada’s economy as opponents attack his stewardship. ‘All of the opposition parties represent a different approach from the government,’ Harper said. ‘They represent an approach of reckless spending, spiraling deficits and high taxation.’
When in fact he is the one who is leading us to disaster with his failed policies of austerity and insane fixation with the deficit. He is the one who is recklessly spending a surplus he doesn’t have, to try to buy votes. In the biggest hog fest this country has ever seen…” —Montreal Simon

Yesterday’s post featured a piece by Canadian economist Jim Stanford shredding Harper’s delusion self-promotion as Canada’s economic saviour by presenting the findings of a 64-page, damning study of Harper’s economic record. Today’s post picks up where Stanford left off with an equally damning study, in words and images, of Harper’s inglorious vanity.

To ‘experience’ the creative genius of Montreal Simon, click on the following linked title. Alternatively, below is a cross-posting of his magic, including two embedded videos and all the images but one, a photo of Harper.

Stephen Harper and the Insanity of Harperland  by Montreal Simon, http://montrealsimon.blogspot.ca/, July 31, 2015

I’m glad I’m leaving Canada for a while because I really need to get away from this ghastly political monster.

Who is now so desperate, he is turning his depraved Harperland into a mad house.

For there he was in a Bloomberg interview claiming that he was a Great Economist Leader, the steady hand on the wheel.

And that letting anyone else steer Canada through these perilous times could only lead to disaster.

With an election call coming as early as Sunday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper is staking his claim as the best hope for Canada’s economy as opponents attack his stewardship.

“All of the opposition parties represent a different approach from the government,” Harper said. “They represent an approach of reckless spending, spiraling deficits and high taxation.”

When in fact he is the one who is leading us to disaster with his failed policies of austerity and insane fixation with the deficit.

He is the one who is recklessly spending a surplus he doesn’t have, to try to buy votes.

In the biggest hog fest this country has ever seen…

His economic record is the worst of any Prime Minister in the last seventy years.

Not only does a recent poll suggest Harper’s reputation as a competent manager of the economy has plummeted, a new analysis shows Harper with the worst economic record of any Canadian Prime Minister since the end of the Second World War.

The results? On 13 of the 16 indicators, Harper ranks dead last or second last. In fact, Harper does not rank higher than sixth on any single indicator.

And not only is he tanking the economy. He’s now preparing to sell us out with a deal that would effectively kill two of the country’s best known institutions.

A leaked document from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade talks indicates the CBC, Canada Post and other Crown corporations could be required to operate solely for profit under the deal’s terms.

Including the one he’s slowly been murdering for years…[the CBC]

But still he would claim that only he can save us. And that’s why Canadians should re-elect him.

Or follow him into the abyss of his own creation…

And what makes all of this even more disturbing, is that some in the MSM are suggesting that deranged strategy might actually work.

The Conservatives may have hoped to ride great economic statistics to a fourth win, but here’s an irony: Their prospects might be brightening a bit because the economy is darkening.

When voters think things are so bad that they couldn’t get worse, they want change. When they think things are so good that nothing could go wrong, they are open to sampling fresh talent and ideas. 

But when people aren’t sure what lies ahead, when they imagine that government might need to do something or that doing the wrong thing could make a soft patch turn into a hard landing, people size up their options more carefully.

So although his attempt to scare Canadians into voting for him, by invoking the Great Terrorist Menace, and no doubt praying for a terrorist attack, has so far failed miserably.

And has only made him look and sound like a mad emperor, or the Sith Lord Palpatine…[  fictional character and the main antagonist of the Star Wars universe, a widely-recognized pop culture symbol of evil, sinister deception, tyranny, and the subversion of democracy].

Now he is trying to use the fear and uncertainty his failed economic policies have created, to try to convince Canadians to give him another bloody majority.

Which is in my opinion the very definition of insanity. And why I need to get away so badly.

Return to the land that has just crushed its Cons, and reduced them to a solitary MP.

Breathe in the fresh air of the highlands, instead of the stench of Harperland.

Hit the road on my bike, or just go a little wild, like my buddy Danny MacAskill…[amazing 7:42-minute video, but don’t try this at home]

It should be quite a journey. But I will be able to post occasionally.

And you can be sure that wherever I go, I’ll always be dreaming of the day when we are finally free, and this insane nightmare is finally over.

Hold the fort while I’m gone everybody.

And I’ll be back soon…
