Sigh….menacing pudgy white guys in blues brothers suits – one even had the requisite jack boots. Hackneyed cliche upon hackneyed cliche. It was also pretty boring too – seemed to take forever to make a hamfisted point.
Yeah, unions inhabit an alternate universe – don’t ‘spects they’ll impress too many people with attention spans being what they are these days. More like preaching to the choir.
That’s terminally insanity, there’s no hope for the brainiacs who concocted this one. It’s so far off base it surpasses the old Liberal attack ad against the Conservatives about “….soldiers in the streets…”, probably the same lame brain mindset.
A few more offerings like this and Justin of Pi winging it as leader should keep the Liberals in turd place. Sad really, having the NDP as government in waiting is scary in itself but at least we know it will keep the Harper Conservatives in power in spite of the cockeyed polls being put out.
The very simple way to put an end to this is for the government to stop collecting union dues. Let the unions collect their own dues. This has worked wonders in the USA when tried. I believe almost 1/3 of union members refuse to voluntarily pay their dues when not forced to do so.
Harper Derangement Syndrome in full bloom. Reminded me instantly of that sick 10:10 video where leftist watermelons thought it hilarious to blow up school children who didn’t blindly adhere to the green agenda. I’ve worked in both union and non-union workplaces, and I can state from direct experience that if anyone ever actually wears jackboots anymore, it’s the hardcore unionistas. I would love to see PM Harper bring in Right-To-Work legislation that gives these lock-stepping totalitarians a solid kick to their collective ‘nads and make their worst fears come true.
Of course it’s completely bonkers; I wanted to see the pony tailed, bearded gas mask wearer light up his cigar while wearing the mask.
Functionally, gas masks won’t work with beards as they would ruin any seal; rendering the mask completely useless. Secondly, cigar smokers don’t generally kill gold fish in bowls, maybe cats would do that.
Lastly, if you going to go all ‘Mafiosi’ like; and make PMSH look bad, its best not to look like a bunch of Jimmy Hoffa ‘send ups’…

Is this a political ad, along the lines of an anti Conservative “attack ad”, or is PSAC just advertising their services? Is PSAC running candidates in the next election? Is Elections Canada investigating? Are the members of PSAC fully behind funding for this ad with their union dues? Will they collectively be assessed contributions to a political party through paying for this “ad” and deduct (again) a portion in addition to their already tax deductible union dues? Is PSAC issuing a political contribution receipt for the ad to their members…or accounting for it as such on their books ?
