Harper should be ashamed of himself

 

 

It is deeply worrisome to see the leader of Canada targeting a marginalized community to win an election. These dirty politics will have negative consequences for members of the community as they may face a backlash from hatemongers. Two Muslim women have already been attacked and a school in Montreal has been vandalized. As the mayor of Calgary stated, this is disgusting and dangerous.

A leader of the nation should be above such low-level politics.  He should be the one bringing people together especially at the time in which we live when hatred is everywhere.

This kind of fearmongering is played by bigots and fascists and we have already seen its effects in Germany during the Second World War.

Mr. Harper should feel ashamed of himself for trying to wag the dog in order to distract Canadians from the real issues facing them, such as the Senate scandals and the ailing economy.

Mr. Harper should not forget the  dark days of our history when Japanese Canadians were deprived of their basic rights and put in cages like animals as a result of the hatemongering against them.
