Harper’s anti-Muslim propaganda will hopefully end

Reader takes on anti-muslim propaganda in response to last week's letter.

After reading the letter from Julian Hudson, I suppose we have to live with the reality that there are such hateful and misinformed people living in our midst, but at least we don’t have to be governed by it after we get rid of Harper and his Cons in October. That should calm down all the anti-Muslim propaganda we have been inundated with ever since the days of Bush in the States.

The Harper-Bush types have been so obsessed with demonizing Muslims, immigrants, refugees that they fail to appreciate how diversity enriches us all. For example, while European countries were slopping around in the barbaric Dark Ages, Islam was in the midst of its Golden Age, a time when Egyptian, Persian, Jewish, Christian, and Islamic scholars worked together peacefully to achieve many great scientific, economic, intellectual and cultural things; the invention of hospitals for one thing.  But then some pope got worried that Christianity was losing ground so they went advocating throughout Europe for the Crusades to invade the Middle East

I abhor ignorance.  And when it is mixed with meanness, it is just plain unacceptable.  Which is why we are getting rid of the HarperCons.  The world, and especially Canada, can simply not tolerate any more of their lies, crimes, ignorance, meanness, hate, fear, and war mongering, and all that insane non-sense that is passing for politics these days.  The rest of us want and deserve better than that.

During the debate Harper said that the other parties wanted to let in millions of refugees with no screening done at all.  It would have been one thing if he had said that at one of his vetted Con gatherings, because only a Con believes a Con, and there he can get away with it.  But to say something so stupid and unfounded in public tells me without a doubt, that he is not fit to be a leader of any sort.  He most certainly is not fit to represent Canadians internationally.

When I lose patience with the blatant lies the HarperCons are spreading, I comfort myself with the fact that it is only a matter of weeks until the approximately twenty percent of eligible Canadian voters who support the Cons will be further stunned to find out in October that they are history.
