Stephen Harper might be dismissed as simply a tinpot dictator from the frozen north; a dour and unimaginative leader of the Canadian Conservative Party. Unfortunately his choirboy image and doughy looks belie a man who’s agenda is far from benign. A combination of John Alexander Macdonald meets Ronald Reagan, he poses a threat, not only to Canadian society, but to Canadian freedom. Unfortunately for Canada, this is a man who has based national policy on his own warped perspective of history and reality and allowed his ego to decide what is good for the country.
Canadians are somewhat lacking in emotion and engagement with regards to their Government. Generally speaking, we are reasonably tolerant, relatively modest and tend to embrace a great game of hockey, a smokin’ bbq and a cold brew above issues of national/international importance. This rather benign attitude is now coming back to haunt us. Ridiculous claims are made by some media channels (CBC) that their cutting-edge programs hold our politicians “feet to the fire”. This empty claim can only be counted with, “what feet, where?” Through our disengagement and ignorance, we now have a situation where the Harper government feels it is appropriate to severely limit our freedoms with the introduction of Bill C-51. According to the CBC, “Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney said on Twitter ahead of the vote that he was urging “all MPs to support the Anti-Terrorism Act 2015 to better protect Canadians from the terror threat.” The unfortunate truth is that when a government wants to “better protect” its citizens, it usually means “better control”.
Harper’s Conservative cabal also wants a ban imposed on wearing a niqab at citizenship ceremonies. Rafe Mair, former B.C. cabinet minister, called it “not only wrong, but also racist.” Mair went further claiming that the Bill C-51 was based on “exploiting fear.”
“Journalist Glenn Greenwald also reminded the audience their chances of dying from an intestinal disease or a bathtub slip-and-fall accident greatly outweigh the possibility of being killed in a terrorist attack. “And this fearmongering is a very dangerous, yet very effective form of persuading people to submit to things you otherwise wouldn’t submit to,” he said.” -Found at: www.huffingtonpost.ca
It is truly a tragedy that the Canadian public appear to be completely unaware that Steven Harper is simply using his political office to further his personal beliefs or more accurately his bizarre religious ones. He is a member of a cultist religious group called “The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA)”, basically part of Evangelical Missionary Alliance, with core values of being “born again”, a second coming of Christ and Armageddon (or “End-times”). Other prominent Canadian Evangelicals include Preston Manning, Stockwell Day, Jr., (Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada – PAOC) and Charles McVety, president of Canadian Christian College. McVety is a self-righteous loony and hater of all things homosexual. He also has some dubious connections, one being Dutch politician, Geert Wilders (who wants the Koran banned), a rabid racist and anti-Islamist. McVety invited Wilders to speak at the Canada Christian College in 2011. Although Wilders claims to be non-religious, he is a staunch supporter of Israel, has apparently visited the country 40 time in the last 25 years, and his wife also happens to be Jewish. What a coincidence.
According to wikipedia: “McVety is also the National Chairman of Christians United for Israel, a sister organization to its American counterpart led by John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and Benny Hinn” some of the most loathsome and disgusting people on the planet. Falwell, a racist with a dubious moral record, was himself a “Christian Zionist” as is John Hagee, described by Marci McDonald as the “undisputed star of the show: Reverend John Hagee, the Texas televangelist…packs eighteen thousand born-again Christians into his Cornerstone Church in San Antonio every Sunday and whose fire-and-brimstone broadcasts reach an estimated ninety-three million homes around the globe”, the primary guest speaker at the McVety’s Canada Christian College in May of 2006. McDonald goes on to say:
“But McVety and others on the religious right are equally convinced that Harper is one of their own. “We’ve got a born-again prime minister,” trumpets David Mainse, the founder of Canada’s premier Christian talk show, 100 Huntley Street. They see him as an image-savvy evangelical who has been careful to keep his signals to them under the media radar, but they have no doubt his convictions run deep—so deep that only after he wins a majority will he dare translate the true colours of his faith into policies that could remake the fabric of the nation. If they’re right, it remains unclear whether those convictions would turn government into a kinder, gentler guarantor of social justice for all or transform the country into a stern, narrow-minded theocracy. And what would his evangelical worldview mean for international relations?” -The complete article can be found at: thewalrus.ca/stephen-harper-and-the-theo-cons/
“Christian Zionism” is a hybrid religious movement that gained traction in the early 1900’s with the publication of the Scofield Reference Bible. Written by Civil War veteran Cyrus I. Schofield and sponsored by World Zionism under the supervision of Samuel Untermyer, New York lawyer and leading American Zionist. “World Zionist leaders initiated a program to change America and its religious orientation.” This so-called “Christian Bible” created a new fable, one where Christians would now honour the role of Judaism and support the founding of a Zionist Jewish nation, that being Israel. It is stunning that any organization has the power to re-write another religion, because this apologetic “holy book” did exactly that and completely changed the complexity of Christianity setting Israel at front and centre.
“This connection might have remained hidden, were it not for the work of Joseph M. Canfield, the author and researcher who discovered clues to the thread in Scofield family papers. But even had the threads connecting Scofield to Untermeyer and Zionism never been exposed, it would still be obvious that that connection was there. It is significant that Oxford (the publisher), not Scofield, owned the book, and that after Scofield’s death, Oxford accelerated changes to it. Since the death of its original author and namesake, The Scofield Reference Bible has gone through several editions. Massive pro-Zionist notes were added to the 1967 edition, and some of Scofield’s most significant notes from the original editions were removed where they apparently failed to further Zionist aims fast enough. Yet this edition retains the title, “The New Scofield Reference Bible, Holy Bible, Editor C.I. Scofield.” It’s anti-Arab, Christian subculture theology has made an enormous contribution to war, turning Christians into participants in genocide against Arabs in the latter half of the 20th century.” -“Why Judeo-Christians Support War” by C. E. Carlson
So as we can clearly see, the schemes and machination of Harper’s “Theocracy” (Government ruled by or subject to religious authority) has now come to pass. Bill C-51 is a deliberate policy designed to stifle and gag anyone who disagrees with dictator Harper and especially censors any criticism of Israel. This is all based on some bogus claptrap regurgitated by men who have profited beyond comprehension for supporting apartheid Israeli policy and the mass-murder of women and children, all in the name of self defence. The abhorrent fact is, that this Christian cult promotes hatred, intolerance and the blood-sacrifice taking place in Palestine and this cabal is running Canada. Their core values are based on Iron-aged nonsense massaged by Jewish interest groups who are overwhelmingly delighted that Canada and the US are happy to sacrifice their young men and women for the greater good of a foreign nation. Could this be construed as treason?
Harper and his ilk, support the psychopathic regime of Israel and their genocide of Palestinians. This is not Christianity as I know it. Even the core claim that this Bill is specifically designed to keep Canadians safe from ISIS is open to scrutiny since an overwhelming amount of information has come to light that ISIS, just like al Qaeda, is a western construct as is Hamas and as trust-worthy as Colin Powell’s claims about “weapons of mass destruction”. As Marci McDonald goes on to say, Canadians need “the realization that slowly, covertly, the political process is being co-opted by an extremist vision of Christianity.” Unfortunately, the lunatics have taken over the asylum. -The Warrior
