As part of the relentless campaign by so-called “conservatives” to mangle, pervert and utterly debase the English language, this is to inform you that the word “heroes” is now dead. It no longer has any meaning whatsoever.
Most not-completely-insane people may have thought the word was reserved for truly great and noble figures of one sort or another like say Einstein or Nelson Mandella, or perhaps even applied to men and women of the military serving in harms way (especially those having made the ultimate sacrifice) and the brave individuals who daily put their lives at risk keep us safe from danger or provide rescue services.
But no! In the Bizzaro World of Sandy Crux, the term “Heroes” includes ignoble slugs like Richard Evans, batshit crazy lunatics like the heroically anonymous “Canadian Sentinel” and clueless, hyperventilating Islamophobes like Paul at “Celestial Junk.” Funnily enough, even Ms. Crux is listed as a “hero” on her roster of right-wing cranks and witless keyboard commandos! Heroic arrogance and self-promotion one might say.
Well, I think that tells you all you need to know about the veracity of what’s laughably referred to as the “accomplishments” of the Harper government that CC’s favourite “fellatrix” is tirelessly flogging on the wingnut-o-sphere (in spite of Harper claiming that the government’s inability to get anything done in our “dysfunctional” parliament may be the pretext for an upcoming election).
