As though to punctuate the irony of breaking diplomatic ties with Iran, Harper signed a trade agreement with China a day later. When he was leader of the opposition Harper never tired of condemning the Liberals for their association with China and now he spends much of his time courting the Chinese government. Harper is truly the lap-dog of one of the world's most horrendous human rights offenders. And he licks at their teats as lying bile vomits from his mouth onto his own people, while filthy bitumen spews from his ass onto China and into the air of everyone.
One of the primary reasons that Harper and his clones gave us for breaking ties with Iran was because of their terrible human rights record. In their latest report on China Amnesty International tells us that in China -
-"The authorities continued to harass, intimidate, persecute and criminalize pro-democracy and human rights activists. Activists supporting the China Democracy Party were sentenced to long prison terms.
-"The number of people subjected to enforced disappearances grew. Many were held in secret detention, including Hada, a Mongolian political activist. Many others remained or were placed under illegal house arrest.
-"China continued to use the death penalty extensively, including for non-violent crimes, and to impose it after unfair trials. Executions were estimated to number in the thousands.
-"The authorities pursued their goal of bringing all religious practice under state control.
The indictment goes on and on. Certainly in terms of the number of people affected, China is has the worst human rights record in the world. Yet Harper licks at the disgusting underbelly of the Chinese state in order to line the pockets of his oil buddies in Calgary. But Harper is not a man of principle. Rather he is a religious maniac, dispensationalist wacko who would do anything to please the Israeli government. Most of the charges that John Baird made of the Iranian State could effectively be levelled against many other Canadian allies, including, most importantly, Israel. Racist diatribes by government officials, active use of military means for political ends, oppression, expansionism, etc. And of course, most ironically, nuclear proliferation!
It is all hypocrisy. Disgusting, inhuman, abhorrent, odious hypocrisy. And it never ends.
