Speaking With Sporked Tongue
Canad’s PM, Stephen Harper, is shown here with a spork (forked tongue and silver spoon), after delivering an apology to First Nation’s residential school survivors. Noting that native children should never have been seperated from their parents and culture, Harper failed to mention he is still an adherent to his mentor, Tom Flanagan’s ideas of assimilation.
While watching the broadcast from tv’s in moldy, clapboard housing not on ancestal lands, some children who were sniffing gasoline wondered if the onion in Steve’s jacket pocket may mean food for them. Harper’s spokesperson, Mr. Spin Spam, said the onion was for different reasons but wouldn’t say what.
Opposition leaders Stephane Dion and Jack Layton refused to say why their governments, alongside the Conservatives, would not grant native sovereignty. Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe got in some political punches but failed to talk about the Conservatives recognizing Quebec as a nation , or past seperatist deals that would see the elimination of native rights. Hmmm.
In good old boy fashion, Native leaders were allowed to speak last, even though it hadn’t been planned they would speak at the apology speech at all. Infamous apple, Phil Fontaine, referred to the past as ‘white supremacy’ but in his words about moving forward together he didn’t say he was still being duped. What does Phil really think….only his hair dresser knows for sure but I’d say one too many scalpings has Clockworked Oranged this guy.
Stay tuned next century for the epic saga of the First Nations in Canada. See what it took to really gain sovereignty, and end the continuuing genocide here.
