Fun with loony-leftie signs

(UPDATE: Welcome to all the folks from Canadian Cynic... guess I must have said something right to get on his nerves...)

What Conservative convention would be complete without the standard protest from the loony left?

Take this guy as an example. I saw his sign attacking Harper for his position on Afghanistan... once again, the stark hypocrisy of the left is on display...How about changing the name on the sign? I'm willing to bet money that none of the left will be carrying this one at a protest anytime soon...
How quickly they forget that their little darling, President-elect Obama, is a strong advocate of INCREASING the military deployment to Afghanistan. Out of one side of their mouths, they sing the praises of Obama... and out of the other side, they critizie Harper for holding the same position.

That folks, is the very definition of hypocrisy... brought to you once again by the Canadian left.

Actually, for the record, Harper is in fact CLOSER to the left here in Canada on that issue than Obama is... Harper's advocating we pull our troops out by 2011.

But just to ensure that those guys on the left are clear about what their "Messiah" south of the border really thinks, feel free to review the following...


(interesting, they always seem to forget that little bit about how he advocates launching attacks into Pakistan... check the 5:00 mark)

Just for fun, at next anti-Afghanistan protest that shows up near you, try making up one of these signs and showing up... see if even one of them realizes the sheer hypocrisy they preach.

I'm willing to bet money they won't.

    You make a couple of childish assumptions in this post.

    First off, you assume anyone who doesn't vote for Stephen Harper is a leftist. Secondly, you assume that anyone who didn't vote for Stephen Harper wants Canadian troops out of Afghanistan.

    The arrogance is predictable and the lack of depth is typical.

    No, some people actually do want to get out of Afghanistan regardless of the political leader. I don't know why you would expect someone to go to a CPC convention and protest Obama being in the war since Obama doesn't live in Canada and he isn't even president yet.

    Assuming someone will be hypocritical in the future is way too cynical.

    Anon, try re-reading the post... I did not make any such assumptions whatsoever.

    The post is a humourous shredding of the "loonie leftie" type protesters like the one pictured.

    Nice try though, "Anonymous".

    bet the guy in the picture was protesting when the Soviets were in Afganistan. No he was probably busy.

    For all you know that guy was a Conservative. A lot of nuance is lost in the 2-D political spectrum.

    No, he was clearly a lefty. He had a beard.

    (Gotta set your level of political analysis according the blog you find yourself reading. This one, at first glance, has a minus sign.)

    Sorry "unaligned", you made a good point, but swearies are a no-no around here... feel free to try again.

    Why are Evangelicals so passive-agressive? Is it something they learn at their praise-ups or temple cereominies or whatever they call their rituals?

    You might think you're being funny, ChristoCon but the smear and insult here is obvious. And that's still a sin, m'boy.

    ??? Well you're gonna have to fill me in there TiGuy, cause I wasn't attempting to "smear" or "insult" anyone.

    I still stand by my statement... I'm willing to bet that most of the folks who are carrying signs like this, demanding that Harper get our troops out of Afghanistan, are fans of Obama... and most of them don't even have a clue that Obama supports putting MORE troops in Afghanistan.

    Go ahead... prove me wrong.

    With a writer for a wife, you of all people should understand the concept of a "figure of speech". ;-)
