Postmedia runs pathetic story attacking Con MPs’ anti-bullying video

A journalist should take a good look at themselves in the mirror when they go looking for or give credence to “critics” of an innocent good-cause such as the anti-bully video produced by Conservative staffers featuring Conservative MPs.

The video wasn’t put together by some high-end production team and obviously came straight from the heart of those working on it so why would Postmedia’s Thandie Fletcher find a University professor and the founder of the original concept (Dan Savage) so willing to criticize their effort?

Savage:

“But it’s going to take more than a video to undo the damage done by Vic Toews and Canada’s conservatives. This was, quite literally, the least Vic and his fellow conservatives could do. The very least.”

The staffer at the beginning of the video clearly states the support is for both straight and gay people being bullied but from the response given by NDP MP Randall Garrison who is the critic for a made-up pretend ministry obviously hadn’t even watched the video:

“You can’t do these [videos] if you’re not an out, gay person.” (see here)

Nice lesson for these young people on trying to make a difference. Their participation on social issues is only wanted when they belong to a particular group or political party and no others are allowed. Kinda ironic for an anti-bullying message isn’t it?

    I wonder what Garrison thinks about this guy, who was not gay and not out, doing an it gets better video?

    This shows that it is not simply a matter of having a different opinion, a political one at that; it indicates a very deranged mind. And they cannot grasp why they have no credibility.

    A transplanted South African(who by the way doesn’t have any black friends in her “circle” )interviewing a moralizing American about Canadian Conservatives-is that what constitutes as objective reporting at the Carelton skool of Journalosers?

    That guy’s my freaking MP. It’s going to be a long 4 years. What a tool. Won by 400 votes. I will work harder next time to defeat this piece of crap.

  6. Bec Says:

    So are these ‘it’s never good enough complainers’ all saying that you must be gay to make a video supporting victims of bullies?

    What do they have to say about Mitchell Wilson who was disabled? Nothing? yup thought so!

    Their position is truly disgusting!
