UPDATE: It wasn’t for long until I found out that Pat was merely proposing a change in the Oath to the monarchy, and commented about the Old Whore’s “service.” You know, the one that she inherited, by blood, without consent of Canadians, and that we’re forced to live under it over a variety of dubious excuses that pander to history, xenophobia, backward traditional values, and other garbage.
This is what happens when you only read the headlines. *facepalm*
EARLIER: Pat Martin, the MP from Winnipeg, today called for the severing of ties to the British Monarchy.
This man is awesome. He’s been vitriolic against the Cons and other MPs for years.
For me, though, the only problem is that he’s trying to use the system against itself, which doesn’t always work. In fact, parliament, despite its uselessness, does not care about popular consent. In order to establish a new system, you must first sweep the old system aside. New Constitution, new form of legislature, and an effective, elected head of state that can counter an abusive legislature, apart from elections. But it’s a start.
Last night Tom Freda’s gang infiltrated the “New” Democratic Party and began passing around cards that consisted of a black-and-white maple leaf, a website address, and a laughable moniker that read: “It’s time for a national debate on the monarchy.” Really? Not, you know, actually get rid of that undemocratic pestilence? Freda is only interested in babbling and talking, not doing. Let’s not just talk about it, let’s get rid of it! But alas, as usual, Freda parades as the sole unelected representative of republicans across the nation, like he’s the queen of the republicans, while launching purges against people who call royals vermin and royalists the plague.
I mean look at this thing!
Look at this! What the fuck, people?! A card?! That’s it?!?! A fucking card, in an utterly bland design, with a pointless black-and-white maple leaf, a tepid, uninspiring, obscure, stupid phrase that’s meant to not offend anyone (considering how PC Tom is) and could be used by the royalists in a different light, and a website address because, you know, people have now become allergic to reading shit on paper for some reason. Oh such fucking impact! Yeah! In the opposite direction! It’s 2012 and Ol’ Fuck Freda decided the best way to do anything about the monarchy is to not make people manifestly aware of what the fucking monarchy even is, and just pass around cards that urge people to only talk about it.
Seriously, this doesn’t do anything! What is this, a fucking joke? The CCR, which started ten years ago, has done nothing at all, and has allowed this “country” to crawl backwards.
