Why Are We Paying for Con Propaganda?
They are the most sinister government government in Canadian history. The masters of the Big Lie.
But who will save us from their foul propaganda?
How dare they make us pay for it?
And when is enough ENOUGH?
An examination by The Canadian Press reveals ad budgets geared to promoting economic success have ballooned under the Conservatives since the 2008 global downturn.
The ad spending data does not include the current fiscal year, 2012-13, for which Treasury Board last spring approved $16 million in "economic action plan" advertising.
There was also another $5 million for a "better jobs" campaign by HRSDC, $8 million for the promotion of cuts to old age security, and $5 million for Natural Resources Canada to promote "responsible resource development."
Can you believe that? Spending millions of dollars on a "better jobs" campaign when the Cons are destroying good jobs all over the country. Or spending millions to brainwash Canadians into thinking that making the old suffer is a good thing.
Or wasting millions of our taxpayer dollars to promote "responsible resource development." When the Cons are the ones torching the planet in the name of Big Oil.
Damn. I don't know what Big Brother would have said about all of this, but Joseph Goebbels would have been impressed:
“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.”
For that's all it is eh? Nothing but totalitarian-style propaganda designed to fool Canadians into thinking the Cons are good money managers. When they're leading us to economic disaster, and selling us out to foreign interests.
All we ever get from that Con cult are more Big Lies like this one.
And if you visit their propaganda sites all you get are links that go nowhere.
Whether the ads promote new government programs or services is debatable. The ads have ranged from ongoing skills training to the promotion of old tax breaks that pre-date the recession.
And the stench of porky politics...
And the good news? It's not working.
The Harris-Decima telephone survey of just over 1,000 respondents found that seven per cent said the government was doing an excellent job on the economy; another 30 per cent said the government was doing a good job. The majority of respondents were less impressed, with 43 per cent saying the government "is doing only a fair job on the economy," and 17 per cent saying it's doing a poor job.
For although there are a lot of really dumb Canadians, you can't fool all of the people all of the time. And the more the Cons hammer them with those irritating ads, the more the Harper gang will look like the cheap hucksters they are.
Golly. Isn't that a consolation?
They thought they were so clever. They thought that we were so stupid that all they had to do was repeat something over and over again, and we would believe it.
Can you believe that eh?
But their ghastly propaganda will help destroy them.
The truth will set us FREE...
And of course when this Porkwellian nightmare is over, we shall show them no mercy.
For after what that depraved Con gang has done to our democracy, they don't deserve any...
