Russian President Putin is not the only world leader playing politics with
the Boston Marathon Bombings.
Canadian Prime Minister is Stephen Harper is taking advantage of the dark
event to try and score some cheap political points against new Liberal Leader
The CONservatives are
desperate to deflate the populist Trudeau’s sustained climb in the polls.
The Prime Minister and his sycophants in the right wing media have gone
bilingual in their attempt to paint Justin as a lightweight on terrorism and
foreign affairs. Harper told reporters today that ““This is not a time to
commit sociology, if I can use an expression,”
The CONservatives are throwing their considerable financial resources and public
resources into a campaign to discredit and define Trudeau as they have with the
past three Liberal leaders.
It is a gambit that has paid-off in the past but I
think Canadian’s are done with the CONservative’s mean spirited parlor tricks.
This approach only fuels the outrage of Canadians towards a corrupt government
that has imposed an un-Canadian right-wing agenda on the nation despite having
less than 30% of the country’s support.
Sure those guilty of committing or planning heinous crimes need to be found
and punished. That is an imperative but we cannot allow the terrorist to win by
making us paranoid to the point of paralysis. We cannot give in to blind rage
and vengeance that leads to big brother powers and fuels more discontent and
rage against the machine. Domestic terrorism is all about root causes.
What is it that we are not offering our youth and our society that causes
some Canadian’s to radicalized? What is
at the root of this rage? What can we do to solve this emerging problem?
