Hyperbolic Anti-Harper Agit-Prop

Now that Stephen Harper is apparently no longer afraid to declare that he wants a majority government, the reaction from some on the left is… well, how shall we say, more than a wee bit hysterical in nature.

Personally, I don’t think that Harper is the Dark Lord of the Sith or the Devil incarnate, but I have to admit to being somewhat apprehensive about what a Harper majority government might do should things shake out that way. Even so, ridiculous, infantile scare-mongering like the video clip posted above demonizing Harper (almost quite literally), serves no good purpose whatsoever.

Cutting Edge Journalism

From CTV…

Yes, it’s another installment of intrepid video reportage from the campaign trail via CTV’s Election2011 channel on YouTube – that now does not allow comments!

Why on earth CTV (and their Globe & Mail subsidiary) posts these inane turds on their respective YouTube channels continues to mystify me. Can anyone provide an explanation? I’m not sure why, but I keep hoping that something illuminating might possibly appear one of these days, but it certainly hasn’t happened thus far.

Irony, Thy Name is “liberty4canada”

Another HarperCon hypocrite going under the name “liberty4canada” that simply can’t help ruthlessly stamping out any expression of critical dissent or opposition…

I’m not sure what exactly “liberty” means in the twisted, Orwellian lexicon of some so-called “Conservatives”… Whatever it may be, it certainly makes me wonder what other fundamental concepts like “free speech” that are commonly associated with liberty they don’t quite fully grasp in Bizzarro Harper World.

By the way, just for the record, my comment wasn’t offensive or profane. As best I recall, it went like this: “Is that the best attack you can mount? How desperately pathetic.”

p.s. Nardwuar is an annoying twat. No wonder Ignatieff didn’t “get it” (whatever “it” may be).

Racist “Humour”

I know we’ve covered this ground here many times before, but aren’t we getting a little sick of the implausible “it was a just a joke” defence whenever some political hack – almost always of the right-wing persuasion it seems – is caught out for circulating crap that is not only offensively racist, but also seriously unfunny?

It’s good to see for a change that some Republicans in Florida are speaking out against the party official in Orange County that sent out the message in question, but you can bet that for every one of those, there are ten times as many right-wingers that will be indignantly pissed off about the “political correctness” of those taking offence.
