The New Con Attack Ad and the Disgustingness of Stephen Harper
As we all know Stephen Harper was the man, or the monster, who introduced the most disgusting attack ads this country had ever seen.
Extracting them from the bowels of Republican America, with his teeth or his tongue. And using them to destroy his political opponents
We also know how well they worked for him, until his ads aimed at Justin Trudeau backfired, and started making Harper look like a grubby pervert...
So now as I'm sure you also know, the Cons are filling the airwaves with a new ad aimed at Trudeau, and trying to portray it as a kinder, gentler one...
When in fact it's the same kind of political pornography, the same kind of smarmy politics of personal destruction, or just a stinky Con turd with a sugar coating.
It distorts Trudeau's positions on the economy and the war on ISIS, makes light of his legitimate stand on the legalization of marijuana, and makes it sound as if he would scrap income-splitting for pensioners. Which is a Big Lie or absolute baloney.
There is no truth to the Conservative assertion that the NDP and Liberals would scrap pension income splitting should they form government. Both parties have explicitly said they would keep the measure.
For these reasons, the claim that opposition parties would do away with pension income splitting is "full of baloney."
But what makes it even worse, or even more disgusting, is that once again the Cons are questioning Justin's masculinity.
As if to assure Canadians that they hadn’t completely deserted the political low road, Conservatives tossed in a gratuitous poke at Justin Trudeau’s appearance in their newest attack ad, released this week. “Nice hair,” says one of the panellists reviewing Trudeau’s resumé in the ad. It is not meant as a compliment.
The hair jokes, the pixie dust in earlier ads, the whispered sneers about how he is riding on the coattails of another man’s intelligence or money (in this case, his father’s) — it’s hard not to see these insults as variations on the question of whether Trudeau is “man enough” to lead Canada.
Which is of course absurd, considering that Harper wouldn't last thirty seconds in the ring with Trudeau...
Before wetting his pants, or calling for his mommy. Or hitting the canvas with a sickening thud.
Or for that matter last thirty seconds in a no holds barred debate with Tom Mulcair.
And whatever the Con propagandists, or the voices in his head might tell him, he is no Great Macho Leader...
But beyond the macho bullshit, what makes the ad so obscene is that running through it is a yellow streak of homophobia and misogyny that could only have come from the reptilian brain of Stephen Harper.
Who is the furthest thing from a real man. Because real men, whether they're gay or straight, don't bully others and may be strong or gentle, but never cruel and cowardly.
And the fact is whatever Canadians might believe, this country and this world need more macho leaders like we need a hole in the head.
What we really need are more strong and decent leaders like this one...
Not one who lost his moral compass a long time ago.
And definitely NOT a political pervert like this one...
And of course one thing is for sure.
Our country will not be clean and decent.
And our Canada will not be our Canada again.
Until we send this depraved monster back to the sewer where he belongs...
