Can we keep our eyes on the ball, comrades? We must, above all else, deny Harper his majority.
We've seen what he's got under his fingernails. Reproductive freedom, civic decency, basic democratic accountability, the notion of valuing citizenship for its own sake ... all toast. Remember how he boasted that we wouldn't recognize Canada when he got through with it?
This goes beyond one little corner of the blogosphere's determination to remain non-partisan. It goes, for that matter, beyond labels like "progressive." We're talking about a place where people who ask inconvenient questions get shouted down at Nuremberg-like party rallies, and people displaying loyalty to the wrong parties get their tires slashed.
When you snipe at each other, you're helping make that more likely.

- Aggressively totalitarian: maybe it's not just hyperbole
