Flanagan’s Murderous Boo boo

Image of Calgary set back years

Steve Harper mentor and advocate of extrajudicial murder, Tom Flanagan, has tarnished the image of Calgary and Alberta, say weary Alberta tourism officials.  “Tar sands and now this,” said Gary Vickers of  the tourism promotion group “I’m Coming Calgary.” Last evening Flanagan said, on the CBC Television program Power and Politics, of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, “I think Assange should be assasinated” and “I think Osama should put out a contract” and “I wouldn’t feel unhappy if Assange disappeared.”

“You try to fight this redneck, ultra-conservative, thick-headed, short-sighted, intolerant, pro-police state image Calgary has and then some jack-ass like Flanagan comes along, opens his mouth without thinking and sets you back years.”  His head in his hands Vickers continued, “I don’t know how much longer I can keep telling people to come here.  I want to leave.”

Many notable right wing idiots including Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Ezra Levant have, with unapologetic blood-lust, called for ignoring due process and arbitrarily killing Julian Assange as revenge for his organization making Government documents public.

Though Flanagan now says he regrets making the stupid comments he still poses a problem for his employer, The University of Calgary. “Having such a direct association with stupidity and intolerance is bad for the University’s image,” said a faculty member who wished to remain anonymous. “Any academic institution is going to have its share of nitwits, Harvard had Michael Ignatieff, but Tom may have crossed the line by advocating murder.  And I will have to check with someone in the Department of Theology, but I’m not sure we can issue Fatwah.”

Flanagan’s dim-witted and dangerous remarks also have conservative “tough on crime” advocates in a quandary as counseling to commit murder is a criminal offense in Canada.

Now questions are being asked about what Flanagan really meant when he proposed to CBC host Evan Soloman that he was “feeling manly today.”

“Perhaps he meant ‘Manley’,” offered a spokesperson for CBC.
