The Man Behind Stephen Harper Calls for the Assassination of Wikileaks Director

The neocons must really be worried about what could come out in these leaks, when the man behind Stephen Harper, Tom Flanagan, calls for an assassination.

I realize this was an off the cuff remark, but it speaks through panic.

He appeared to be a little off his game.

There are calls for his removal from the University of Calgary where he teaches. You can contact that university's president, Elizabeth Cannon, by phone 403-220-5617 or

Could these leaks cause a war? Not likely. Not one already planned at any rate. The feelings of the Arabs may be news to us, but they are fully aware of how they feel about each other. This is only validation.

    Re: Tom Flanigan's Death Threat

    I can hardly believe a Canadian citizen, a university professor no less, would advocate for the death of a news reporter. A sad day for Canada. Isn't uttering death threats considered illegal?

    If people are to believe even somewhat in the "culture" of a political party, then Tom Flanigan's words should be an alert to Canadians that people in and related to our current government do think they are above the law. What arrogance. How immoral.

    I call on the University of Calgary to accept Tom Flanigan's resignation.



    In a panel interview Monday night on CBC's Power & Politics with Evan Solomon, Flanagan said U.S. President Barack Obama "should put out a contract and maybe use a drone or something.

    Tom Flanagan says he 'wouldn't be unhappy' if WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange 'disappeared.'

    "I think Assange should be assassinated, actually," Flanagan said with a laugh, and when asked to expand upon his answer, added that he "wouldn't be unhappy" if Assange "disappeared."
