VIMY RIDGE, France (CP) - Prime Minister Stephen Harper toured the First World War battlefield at Vimy Ridge on Tuesday where he quipped that the enemy now carries news cameras, not guns.Sweet Jesus. Now the conservatives in Canada are drinking the treason Kool-Aid, too?
Harper made the comment during a photo-opportunity at a front line Canadian trench, just metres from the opposing German line.
"These were sand, not cement," Harper said of the reconstructed sandbags.
"And the enemies carried guns, not (a) camera," he added, looking directly over the lip of the old trench at a small clutch of Canadian TV and still cameras.
Let's be clear - in the context of Vimy ridge, Harper was comparing journalists who've refused to bow and scrape before his pomposity, to German soldiers who killed Canadians.
He called journalists enemies. Not just his enemies, but enemies of Canada. He called journalists traitors. For no better reason than because they refuse to play his childish games.
God, it's even worse than the Ann Coulters and Michelle Malkins down south. There at least they try and connect it somehow with the Islamofascist threat. But it seems that here in Canada Harper is even dumber than Bush.
I was willing to give Harper some slack - new PM, leading a pretty raucous caucus, trying to find his footing - but screw him and his know-nothing, see-nothing, do-nothing government.
Every day he's PM makes Canada a worse country.
