A wolf in sheep's clothing

The murder of Nathan Cirillo in Ottawa on October 22nd was a heart breaking tragedy for this soldier, his family and humanity in general. It’s hard to believe, but there is an even greater tragedy that has come from the death of this innocent person: and that is the disgusting way that Stephen Harper and his gang of hooligans are using this event to further the globalist agenda of increased government surveillance and war.

I am absolutely flabbergasted at how quickly Stephen Harper single handedly connected this shooting and the runaway driver in Quebec on October 20th to some militant religious regime. The bodies are not even cold yet and Harper has, in his own mind, completed a thorough investigation, autopsy and historical background check of the criminals. He has then gone on to be judge, jury and executioner. That sounds like a dictator to me. He is obviously taking lessons from Barrack Hussein Obama. Isn’t Canada supposed to be a democratic country where we allow due process to prevail? Are we not supposed to conduct thorough investigations before drawing conclusions? Yeah, right! Those days are long gone. We now live in a military industrial complex lead by dictators who couldn’t give a rat’s backside about the people they supposedly represent.

Harper states that,"…attacks on our security personnel and on our institutions of governance are by their very nature attacks on our country, on our values, on our society, on us Canadians as a free and democratic people who embrace human dignity for all.”

What a crock of crap. This isn’t an attack on the people of Canada or anything else. For all we know the shooter could have been mentally unstable and hopped up on crack. The medical results are not in yet. As for “dignity for all”, would that include the innocent citizens of Iraq? To date, the government numbers state that, 10 civilians have been killed over the past couple of weeks as Canada and the US cowardly bomb Iraq. (Of course the true number is probably much higher than this). These casualties are innocent women, children and men. But I guess they are not included in “human dignity for all.”

Furthermore, watch what comes down the pipe from this. Members of our federal government are now arguing for increased surveillance power for CSIS, the ability to arrest so called “terrorists” without charges, and they encourage Canadians to spy on each other and report this to the government anonymously. These tactics come from the same play book used by savage historical dictators and the likes of George Bush after the inside job of 9/11. This is scary stuff, but it gets scarier as time passes and the definition of terrorist becomes broader. Before too long, anyone who contradicts government is considered a terrorist.

As Canadians we have a long history of being logical and litigious with the way we conduct ourselves. Unfortunately, our politicians no longer abide by this code of conduct.
