When Stalin died in 1953, the Soviet people were bombarded with an unending coverage from all possible media. The poor isolated masses thought that without him their world was going to fall apart. The crowds that attended the funeral were so confused and disorderly that over 1000 people (mostly women and children) got trampled to death.
I don’t know if we will see any people trampled to death at the funeral tomorrow, but the media behaviour is not much different – I am afraid to tune to a Canadian radio or TV channel, because my mind would be crushed by the unending tributes to Jack’s questionable achievements.
However, it is not difficult to figure out why that’s going on – he has an amazingly large number of dimwitted followers who worship him.
That’s the impression I got when I went today to the Toronto City Hall. The huge queue waiting to see him outnumbered the line for Lenin’s mausoleum. But the most interesting thing was the “tributes” written with chalk on the walls and the tiles.
Did you know that Olivia Chow is groomed to become our next Prime Minister? At least that’s what the masses want:
And they even say it in Arabic! And here is the same wish again:
Did you know that the recent earthquake was a tribute to Jack’s death? He is in the same elevated communist group like Kim Jong Il, whose birth was marked by a new star.
And not to be outdone by Lil’ Kim, somebody demands that Jack get a star as well: “Jack Need a Star on Da Walk of Fame.” (Obviously, he has admirers in the hip-hop community).
Even that is not enough, for Jack is “The Only Superhero Canada Knew”:
Apparently he also achieved a communist sainthood, because someone declared: “Now Canada Has It’s Own Che Guevara. Thanks, Jack.” (It should be spelled “Its”, you illiterate commie).
To remove any doubt about where the loyalty of the “Canadian Che Guevara” lies, somebody added a large Cuban flag to his shrine (for some reason it reminded me of Jeffrey Dahmer’s home shrine):
And of course, the foreigners, who don’t speak English, benefited from his money grabs as well:
The Tamils didn’t forget him either (not so long ago he was pressing the Prime Minister to send money to Sri Lanka to rebuild the country):
And those who wanted to take a bite after the long writing could do so at the halal hotdog stands in front of City Hall (the halal meat merchants in Jack’s riding love him):
In such an atmosphere, it is very dangerous to show disagreement with the Jack worship, unless you want to be kicked and spit on.
It’s no wonder that the only creature, which expressed a different opinion, was a police horse. He deposited the product of his bowel right in front of a Jack
If Jack was alive, he probably would have appreciated the humour in that situation. Or maybe not – most likely, he would have got the horse involved in an NDP fundraiser…
