Would-be Canadian, show your face!

Last edited Fri Feb 13, 2015, 02:06 PM - Edit history (1)

It seems Harper still has some money in the budget to plumb the depths of his misogyny and racism. Taking issue with the Federal court ruling that women can wear a niqab when taking the oath of citizenship, Harper has said he will appeal. After all, as he sees it, "any violation of a charter right would be 'trivial' because the oath takes less than a minute to recite."

Trivial? I'm pretty sure the women to which this applies do not consider this a trivial matter. And I doubt Harper believes his own words, anyway.

Even more bizarrely -- and in a shameless display of irony -- Harper further justifies his opposition to this ruling by stating, "This is a society that is transparent, open and where people are equal."

And he said it with a straight face.

1. ........

"I believe, and I think most Canadians believe, that it is offensive that someone would hide their identify at the very moment where they are committing to join the Canadian family," - Harper.

He speaks for himself and his con supporters only. "Most Canadians" are 100 X more tolerant than this misogynist, racist *. Yes, it is hard to believe he said what you quoted with a straight face, but then most narcissists do believe they're making sense.

Don't ever forget his most famous words: You wont recognize Canada when Im through with it. Hopefully this long nightmare will end soon and we'll recognize Canada the way we're proud to again.
