Montreal Simon: Marg Delahunty Sets Out to Save Canada

Well I'm sure you remember the time comedian Mary Walsh aka Marg Delahunty, surprised Rob Ford in his driveway dressed up as a warrior princess.And how that shocking confrontation ended badly with Mayor Bobo calling the police.

And I can certainly remember how shocked I was to catch her in the act back in 2004 French kissing Stephen Harper.Read more »

Montreal Simon: The Nightmare Campaign and My Day of Rage

I was going to write a post about young Canadians and the campaign to get them to vote. But like so many of them I was just too tired, after attacking the punching bag at the gym like I wanted to kill it.I had to, I was that angry. For this this was the day when the horror of this campaign finally sank in, and made me explode with rage. Rage at the bigotry of the Cons, or at other bloggers for seeming to surrender. Because I just can't believe to what monstrous place Stephen Harper has taken us.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Another New Anti-Harper Song: Vote that F***er Out !!!

In my last post I wrote about how Stephen Harper and his filthy Cons want to torture and kill gay kids.And since we all know how he is using bigotry to hijack this election.When I see how some progressives are moaning and groaning or surrendering to despair. Or playing stupid partisan games. Or trying to figure out how many angels can fit on the head of a pin.I've gotta say I really like this song.Read more »

Montreal Simon: The Disgusting Homophobia of Stephen Harper’s Filthy Cons

Stephen Harper has always been a stealthy but vicious enemy of the LGBT community.He has voted against every bill or measure designed to protect their human rights.He believes that being gay is just a choice.And now I see one of his candidates is following in his master's ghastly footsteps.And advocating the torture of gay children.Read more »

Montreal Simon: How to Use Strategic Voting to Defeat the Bigot Cons

Stephen Harper and his Aussie attack monster Lynton Crosby must be delighted. Not only do they now have the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal to wave around as a shiny bauble to try to distract voters.The niqab issue is back in the spotlight. The Federal Court of Appeal has denied the application for a stay of the Federal Court ruling in favour of Zunera Ishaq, clearing the way for her to wear a niqab during a citizenship ceremony.So they can hope to keep riding it to victory.Read more »

Montreal Simon: The Day Stephen Harper Sold the Canadian Farm

Well it took him almost ten years, to destroy Canada as we once knew it.

But I see Stephen Harper and his porky Cons have finally sold the farm.

A free-trade deal that opens a small part of the Canadian dairy market to cheaper foreign imports could spell the beginning of the end for the country’s dairy supply management system, and push inefficient farmers out of business, observers say.And so much for our family farmers.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Why Progressives Urgently Need to Expose Stephen Harper’s Lies

I think I can safely say that in all my life I have never seen a person lie so often and so blatantly as does Stephen Harper.For years he claimed that the NDP had a "job killing carbon tax" even though they didn't.He seems to have no shame. He can't help himself.Now in his latest attack ads aimed at Justin Trudeau he is once again blatantly strangling the truth.So I thought I would run both those ads, and see if you can spot the Big Lies…Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Night of the Raven

It was weird out there last night. A massive modern art show was going on all over the city, from dusk to dawn.And in my neighbourhood there were all kinds of strange and disturbing sights. Like people writhing on the sidewalk, or a hall full of 30,000 black paper moths, which when you were there seemed to close in on you in a threatening manner.

But it was the raven figure on the wall that I found most chilling. For it made me think of Stephen Harper lurking in the darkness trying to figure out how to increase (Read more…)

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper’s Criminally Irresponsible Reefer Madness

As we all know Stephen Harper has an unhealthy obsession with marijuana, handcuffs, and Justin Trudeau. Not necessarily in that order.He has no respect for science, and has never seen a scientist he didn't want to muzzle.But even by his low standards this is criminally irresponsible. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Monstrous Enemies of Israel List

Well we've always known that Stephen Harper has a long list of enemies, real or imagined.And we also know that he will do or say anything to pander to the right-wing Jewish vote.But this combination couldn't be more disgusting. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Fascism of the Con Regime

On the night Stephen Harper won his monstrous majority, I ended my very short post by playing the song from the movie Cabaret, of the young Nazi in the beer garden singing Tomorrow Belongs to Me.

For which I was roundly criticized by some of the stuffy poobahs in the blogosphere.

"Don't you know that's Godwin's law?" they screamed. "It's verboten !!! It's Harper Derangement Syndrome !!!!"

But now I feel I have been vindicated. Because this is fascism…Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Bigot Fires in Quebec

I warned long ago that if Stephen Harper was desperate enough he wouldn't hesitate to set this country on fire.

I knew that when the niqab court decision dropped into his lucky lap, Harper and his Australian hitman Lynton Crosby would use it as a massive wedge issue to try to poison this campaign, And that's exactly what has happened. It has become the niqab election, or the citizenship election.Emotion has replaced reason. The fires of hatred are burning bright, and nowhere more than in Quebec.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Julian Fantino and the Horrible Ketchup Scandal

Oh no. Not more weird Con scandals. And not bloody Julian Fantino !!#@!!!What with Stephen Harper whipping up bigotry to try to snatch another bleeding majority, I don't know if I can handle it eh?This could be the story that finally drives me over the edge. And sends me tumbling into the moral abyss this country has become.The story of Julie, the Ketchup, and the buttocks.Read more »

Montreal Simon: How Lynton Crosby Brought Stephen Harper Back From the Dead

I must admit it is getting a bit grim out there. Fall has finally arrived, it's getting colder and darker, the skies over this ghastly Harperland are filled with flying monkeys.Stephen Harper is a frenzy urging them on to destroy his enemies, with his poisonous wedge issues. And of course this is a living nightmare.Less than two months ago they were fitting him out for his political coffin, he was being battered by the Duffy scandal and growing less popular with every passing day.Now he's back, and gunning for another majority.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper’s Dangerous Move to Deport Canadians Born in Canada

If anyone doubted that Stephen Harper's plan to strip the citizenship of dual citizens convicted of terrorist offences was a slippery slope, and entirely political, consider the evidence.First the Cons announced that they were stripping the citizenship of a wannabe jihadi born in Pakistan.Now they are considering doing the same to one born in Canada.

Montreal Simon: Darth Harper and the Divided Left That Eats Itself

I think it safe to say that with less than three weeks to go before the election, and Darth Harper and his Aussie alien Lynton Crosby preparing to use the foulest wedge issues to try to win another mandate.As you can see by this latest tweet from Great Ugly Leader.

The last thing I probably needed to know was that the NDP and the Liberals are fighting each other. Again.Or see the gratingly Con friendly Jen Gerson crow that the left is eating itself. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Caricature of Justin Trudeau

From the moment Justin Trudeau was named Liberal leader, Stephen Harper and his foul Cons went after him in what can only be described as a bestial manner.The brutish Harper has tried to portray Trudeau as foppish dilettante, not ready, and too dangerous to be prime minister. He has questioned his masculinity. Him and his Cons now calling him a terrorist sympathizer.

But most of all the depraved bully Harper has tried to turn him into caricature, a cardboard cutout, a doll. So he could more easily destroy him.So in that regard I found Jonathan Kay's impressions of the (Read more…)

Montreal Simon: The Munk Debate and the Justin Trudeau Challenge

I thought it was the best debate so far, if only because at long last it was all about our precious and very threatened Canadian values.And as predicted, as soon as Stephen Harper stopped groping the hands of his opponents, he set out to destroy them.By reaching into Lynton Crosby's sweaty bag of dirty wedge issues, and challenging his opponents to criticize his decision to strip a convicted terrorist wannabe of his Canadian citizenship.And since it is such an explosive wedge issue, I was glad to see the way Justin Trudeau rose to the challenge.

Montreal Simon: The Munk Debate and Stephen Harper’s Foreign Policy Trial

Tonight Stephen Harper will take past in the Munk Debate on foreign policy, along with the other leaders.And if there is any justice it should be a trial of his insane foreign policy. And the way he has shamed us in the eyes of the world. For as this leaked report reveals, the damage couldn't be more devastating. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Why Did the MSM Fail To Dig Up Stephen Harper’s Past?

As you know, a large number of candidates from all parties have had to resign after their past came back to haunt them.Which is depressing, and makes me wonder how far we have fallen in this decaying Harperland. Rotting like a corpse from the head down.But what it also makes me wonder, is whether Stephen Harper would ever have been prime minister if his past had been dug up years ago.Because it's not pretty.Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and the Ghastly Cowardice of the Cons

There are now just three weeks to go before the election that will decide the fate of Canada, and we find out whether it will live or die. And it's hard to escape a feeling of foreboding now that we know for sure how Stephen Harper and his twisted Aussie gremlin Lynton Crosby are hoping to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.By having Harper pose a Great Warrior Leader, the sheriff of the manly men Con posse, who would PROTECT us all the dangers of the world, from economic catastrophe to an invasion of refugees and hookers.Even though we (Read more…)

Montreal Simon: Jason Kenney and Lynton Crosby’s New and Dangerous Wedge Issue

Well don't say I didn't warn you. In one of my last posts I wrote that Jason Kenney would go absolutely wild at the thought that Justin Trudeau was going after the so-called ethnic vote. And yesterday that's exactly what he did,

In a grotesque three-act performance or freak show that began with him trying to smear Trudeau in a way that couldn't be more bizarre or obscene. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Stephen Harper and Lynton Crosby’s Monstrous Lock Box

Well there was Stephen Harper in Quebec yesterday, locking a promise never to raise taxes into a giant safe.Vowing to put a tax lock on our future. Stephen Harper is making a promise to keep his promise. A re-elected Conservative government would introduce so-called “tax lock” legislation that would prohibit increases to federal tax rates, Harper announced Friday.The gesture is a symbolic one, enshrining in law what Harper has already repeatedly promised and allowing him to say other parties — should they form future governments — would have to break the law in order to raise taxes. (Read more…)

Montreal Simon: Jason Kenney and the Vanishing Ethnic Vote

As you know the Harper regime has expended a huge amount of energy pandering to the so-called ethnic vote.And nobody more than Jason Kenney, the man they call Mr Curry in a Hurry, who likes to jet across the country hitting every religious festival and ethnic banquet between St John's and Victoria.In relentless pursuit of the ethnic vote, wherever he can find one. At the buffet table, or in a stairwell bearing a pizza. So I can't help but think that this move by Justin Trudeau must have felt like a kick in the stomach. Read more »

Montreal Simon: Kevin Page and the Many Victims of the Con Regime

For five long years Kevin Page was the Parliamentary Budget Officer, and in many ways the conscience of the Con regime.They hated the way the way he stood up for the truth, they hounded him, they made his life miserable.And two years ago they finally forced him out.But now Page is back with a new book, that tells the story of those nightmare years.Read more »
