That was the MASSIVE sound produced, one might call it a "dis-sonic boom", as R.E.A.L.women's home-schooled fundamentalist christian homophobia collides with the Harper government's Foreign Affairs Minister's efforts to counter homophobia in foreign countries.
Real Women of Canada, a privately funded socially conservative group, says Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird is imposing his own views on Uganda, Kenya and Russia when he criticizes those countries for passing legislation targeting homosexuals.We have written about R.E.A.L.women's odious, toxic anti-feminist lobby before.
The group, which describes itself as a "pro-family conservative women's movement," issued a press release Wednesday decrying what it called Baird's "abuse of office" and his awarding of a $200,000 grant to "special interest groups" in Uganda and Kenya "to further his own perspective on homosexuality."
Real Women also lambasted Baird for admitting he worked extensively behind the scenes to persuade Russia not to pass laws restricting foreign adoption of Russian children by gay couples and cracking down on gay rights activism to control the spread of "homosexual propaganda."
Finally, the press release states, "Mr. Baird's actions are destructive to the conservative base in Canada and causing collateral damage to his party."
MP Mark (motion 408) Warawa is a huge fan.
They helped pick the Jubilee medal winners, one - a jailed criminal.
They even attacked Helena Guergis when she was still a member in good standing of Harper's cabinet. Funny though, how virulently gynophobic the CPC Cons get when women like Belinda Stronach, Helena Guergis and Bev Oda and Marjory LeBreton draw attention to their vacuous principles.
Which leads me to think that the unofficial Harper policy towards women which Sen. Nancy Ruth called "friendly advice" - when she addressed it to feminist organizations - will be swiftly and brutally executed.
Pass the popcorn, please.

Landolt suggested Baird was meddling when he raised such concerns.
“It really is offensive,” Landolt said Wednesday. “The issue is really why is he interfering in a sovereign country’s legislation? He really has no business to do that.”
“I don’t want other countries to get what we have here where people’s religious values and traditional values are being pushed aside and giving homosexuals priority,” she said.
“According to Mr. Baird it’s a protection of human rights but it’s not universally accepted. It’s not a Canadian value,” she said.
The organization describes itself as a “pro-family conservative women’s movement . . . Our common bond is our belief that the family is the most important unit in society.”
The same news release also says that “homosexual activists” have become a “tyrannical minority.”
Oh really? Like the fetushist, anti-choice, anti-women's right to reproductive justice, “tyrannical minority”?
