Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to Iran: “Screw you and the camel you rode in on”

by editor on January 25, 2011

While President Obama was busy shining Chinese President Hu’s shoes on Wednesday, Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper was actually acting like a national leader and telling the Iranian government to stick it where the sun don’t shine. (And when we say “where the sun don’t shine,” we don’t mean north of the Artic circle in January.)

Would you be surprised to find out that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is a conservative? Nah, we didn't think so.

Canada’s National Post has the un-American details of a national leader who actually stands up for his nation:

The Harper government sent a diplomatic note to Iran Wednesday, as Heritage Minister James Moore lashed out at Tehran for its part in a campaign that cancelled the screening of a movie critical of the Iranian regime at Library and Archives Canada.

On Wednesday morning, the Minister instructed Library and Archives Canada to show Iranium, a documentary critiquing Iran’s nuclear program, after it cowed to numerous threats of protest and an official request from the Iranian embassy in Canada to not present the film Tuesday night, as scheduled.

In its diplomatic note to Tehran, the government said Canada is a free country and that freedom of expression is a core value that won’t be compromised.

“This movie will be shown, the agreement will be kept and this movie Iranium will be shown at Library and Archives Canada. We will not be moving it to a different facility, we’re not bending to any pressure,” said Mr. Moore on the CBC’s Power and Politics.

“People need to be kept safe, but we don’t back down to people who try to censor people by threats of violence.”

Prime Minister Harper, it seems, has bigger balls than President Obama. But then, so does Angela Merkel.

PLEASE, would you fine citizens of the NWT, Nunavut, AB, SK, MB and anyone with old-fashioned Green Gables conservatism in The Maritimes, please secede from Canada, bring Harper with you and join up with others here in The States who want freedom again to start a new country?

Can we trade leaders? I know both dont have a complete set of parents that where born in the USA, but at least PM Harper has a set and is not afraid to show them when necessary, unlike the wuzzy in the White House, who has to get permission from the wife to have his set of stones back.

Wow seriously?! The President of one country didn’t want to give away their sovereignty to the government of another country so wholly unconnected to the first country? What is this world coming to when people actually stand up for their rights and liberties…?

Sooo odd!!!

I guess I have been under the reign of Obama for too long…

And yet Mr. Harper leads with a minority government, because so many lefty Canadians are afraid of his “real intentions” and his “secret conservative agenda.” We’re still a fledging socialist hellhole here, I’m afraid, despite bright moments of leadership like this.

We have how many Senators and Congressmen? 525 or so elected wusses supposedly running our country? With a President that has not proved to me he is a citizen of this country and a Vice-President who is loonier than Bugs Bunny, but not as smart, looking after our interests? And not one of them have the nuggets to stand up and say what most of us living in North America think?

Come on down Mr. Harper! If the liberal elite in Hollyweird can get a Kenyon elected surely we conservatives can get a Canadian elected.

What are you talking about Whiskey? We haven’t been able to get a conservative elected in this country since Reagan. Sure, we’ve had some Republicans, but no conservatives.

True but we will have very good chance in another two years. Just like we did after the peanut farmer got done screwing things up so bad.

Wow. A politician with a backbone? Where was he in 2008?

And yes, I do realize that he couldn’t have run for President because of citizenship status, although that didn’t stop Barry. However, the media would have never allowed this guy to get through.

Nice … rub it in … rub it in … we could invade Canada, capture your PM and install him as our president, but I’ve been smoking crack all day with the editors from IHateTheMedia.com, due to the fact that I’m a racist and an accomplice to murder! BTW, did I tell you I’m a “stupid old white person?”
I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, though … YOU BETCHA! OoraH! Cananda … DOH! … USA!!!!
