Grassroots to grassfire
I'm thinking of making T-shirts: "Proud to be a member of that `left-wing fringe group' called `Women.'"
They'd be pink, of course, for socialism – and also for the pink triangle, the badge the Nazis made gays and lesbians wear before shipping them off to the camps.
Thanks to Prime Minster Stephen Harper, those T-shirts will make me rich!
So props to you, P.M., for letting down your hair, and your guard, last week at that not-so-closed-door speech in Sault Ste. Marie.
Thank you for finally admitting that your government shut down the Court Challenges program in 2006 not just because, as then-Heritage Minister Bev Oda claimed in Parliament, you "recognize the importance of women" but because you believe that that women's rights are "left-wing fringe" rights.
Okay, so it's not pink but black. That's more slimming. Plus it made it easier to come up with a version for supportive men.
Big ups to Dwayne Radzik Radke for the photo manipulation you see above.
You can bet that Mr. Harper won't be putting us on...anymore.
