I'm on to your secret master plan

So almost all our politicians have decided to eschew partisanship, crank up the xenophobia, and make political capital out of being really really angry at the Elections Canada officials for letting veiled women vote without removing their veil. Nevermind the fact that this is a manufactured outrage, that no muslim organization has asked for this right, and that the law the Quebec politicos passed to forbid masked people from voting was basically portrayed as a solution to a non-existent problem. While it actually was a real solution to an entirely different problem (in short, get some of the racist mouthbreathers off the politicos' back).

No, I've found exactly why they've pushed this law to forbid people from voting while masked. It's not targetted at the Muslim community, it's not a plan to disenfranchise women under the guise of freeing them from patriarchal oppression. No. It's entirely a plan not to let THESE people vote.

Once again, the State has thwarted the anarchist menace!

(And if you don't get the joke, read this.)
