The "Truth" Ads Will Work!

I wasn't aware that we were in election mode, but with Iggy doing his 20-11 tour and Layton doing a tour of his own, I guess we should get ready for one in the spring. I say, if the opposition parties want an election, bring it on!

What's so funny is that the opposition can go all over the world, (Rae and Duceppe) ranting and raving, but the Conservatives release some ads, and the left go ballistic. You see, the left want Conservative voices silenced, we are a disease that needs to be wiped out, a movement that impedes their goal for power. We can not stand up for ourselves, we are not allowed to use facts to tear down their ideas, like global warming. They can spew filth and talk about killing but a few ads quoting Ignatieff's true words sends them into a tail spin. Listen carefully to Ignatieff at this "pep" rally, also listen to a person in the crowd yell ( at about 45 sec) out "kill him". Funny, the lefty press sure hasn't reported on this incidence.



Iggy also forgets that he is not in the House of Commons and does not have immunity when he calls MP Baird all sorts of names. If that had been a Conservative, you can bet they would have been replaying it every second of every day for weeks. It shows how immature Ignatieff is and how lefties think.

Didn't Scott Reid also write an article where he asked lefties to "kill him" meaning PM Harper? Funny it seems the Globe and Mail has revised it. Here is the original quote:

Quote: This becomes relevant because suddenly, he is weak. In fact, at this particular moment, he is almost unable to defend himself. Owing to a ridiculously ill-considered act of hubris, he has laid himself vulnerable to his opponents. Their imperative could not be more clear: kill him. Kill him dead. Do not, whatever you do, provide him with an opportunity to extend his hold on power. Because you can be damn certain he will never again be so reckless as to give you a chance to finish him off.
Here is the Globe and Mail doing a "revised" article, without even an apology to our Prime Minister, stupid lefty media:

Do not, whatever you do, provide him with an opportunity to extend his hold on power. Because you can be damn certain he will never again be so reckless as to give you a chance to finish him off.

I was going to post that awful ad that the Liberals used in the 2004 election, where a REAL gun was pointed at us. If that isn't an attack ad, I don't know what is, but don't expect the media to remember that little gem. Iceman found it, and has posted it. Go there and watch it. It's the last one he has posted, called "Revolting Liberal Attack Ad". Revolting is right, I think they even fired the gun, but I can't be sure.

I was also upset today when the National Post journalist Kelly McParland, equated some "truth" ads being released by the Conservatives to the shooting disaster in the US. He is way off base and I usually expect better of him. Very disappointing.

As far as the ads go, I like the one with PM Harper best. Maybe it's a woman thing, but I really connected with that ad. I liked the quiet of the ad, I felt that really was where you could find PM Harper, it wasn't phony, and I wanted to help him with all that work so he could get home to his family. VERY effective. "Here For Canada", excellent slogan! Look for the Beatles mug.



Contrast the two videos. Ignatieff spouting off about MP Baird, or our PM hard at work? I know which one I support. Ignatieff reminds me of my father, old, stuffy and out of touch. (Sorry Dad!).

H/T to Sassy and Iceman.

I think is appalling that comments have been disabled of YouTube for the "Here for Canada" ad. apparently they are afraid of what the comments would be for the video... shame...

The_Iceman said...

Actually, I can't take credit for remembering the 2004 gun pointing ad. An anonymous comment reminded me of it. My posts Monday were in part a reaction to Kelly MacParland being "outraged" at the new ads. I strongly agree with your dissapointment in him for this piece. I think the ads are very effective, even if they shouldn't exist in a perfect world. Sometimes you have to be pragmatic about strategy, which Harper is and why I support him.

Southern Quebec said...

If you actually think Sweater Boy is working, you are a lot more naive than I thought!

CanadianSense said...

The 20-11 or mission impossible tour as penned by the NDP describing Ignatieff is astute.

In 11 days the Liberals will visit 20 ridings they won't recapture.

In 2011 if we go to the Polls at least 20 more ridings will be "unheld" by the party in Toronto.

A complete wipe out or merger may not take place until 2013-2014 when funding is cut for the subsidy.

Brian Busby said...

I can't see that the left have gone "ballistic" over the ads, but then I've never encountered anyone - left, right or centre - who views Conservatives as "a disease that needs to be wiped out" either.

The most thoughtful commentary I've read thus far, not entirely complimentary, comes from Gerry Nicholls.

Fay said...

Good post! CTV and Dan Matheson certainly got themselves into a lather over the Truth Ads.
Gerry Nicholls thoughtful???? Give me a break.

maryT said...

If these ads are not doing the job, and informing Canadians of who and what MI is, why has a liberal mp filed a complaint with the ethics commissioner because we can see our PM in his office. Isn't it really our office, paid for by taxpayers, so why can't we see it being used by the elected occupant.
And why shouldn't we be reminded of things MI has said, and believed. I seem to remember the msm bringing up stuff the PM wrote, almost in kindergarten, to try and condemn him, so why not be reminded that MI thinks our Flag is a beer can label, from his own mouth, or that he said, my country when referring to the USA.
Trying to get the immigrant vote by lying and saying his father got on a boat with nothing is beyond the pale. Google George Ignatieff and you will see the truth. Bragging he campaigned for PET, you will find that his father had no use for PET.
And the media ignoring the threat to kill Baird, or for iggy to call out the person, and refusing to condemn Reid for his orders to kill our PM, could be twisted to say liberals support assassinating their opponents.
The msm and coalition partners just hate it that we tell the truth and people are paying attention.

maryT said...

How many of you are aware that a person making a threat to kill someone at a town hall, televised on ABC was arrested on the spot and sent for a mental examination. The threat against Baird was made after the Tuscon tragedy and yet the guy/gal was not arrested or questioned or condemned by iggy.

wilson said...

Iffy has daily attack ads in the media.
That is likely one reason why women think he is creepy.

You never see PMSH go after Iffy personally, the ads do it.

I like the ad with PMSH, all alone, weight of the entire country on his shoulders,
working hard for Canadians.
Imo, that ad reaffirms the FACT that Canadians have confidence in our Prime Minister.

Compare that to Iffy having the worst absentee record in Parliament.

wilson said...

ps the LPC is responding to these ads the same way they have always responded,
boo hoohoo, Harper is a meanie
For gawd's sake, quit blubbering Liberals.

Southern Quebec said...

"I like the ad with PMSH, all alone, weight of the entire country on his shoulders,

hahahahaha...Shilson, you do have a sense of humour!

Laurie Johnson said...

Iggy grew up in a Canada with medicare, the charter and universal secondary education? How old is he? But then he`s also the one who waxes nostalgic about hunting ducks with a .22.

liberal supporter said...

Poor babies. All your dreams of imposing your far right views on the rest of us just slipping through your fingers.

Steve's toast. Now run around claiming I threatened him in some way, despite the fact there is not a toaster big enough to hold fat boy.

I thought you were all about "there is no right not to be offended", yet you whine about your leader being mocked, you silly hypocrite.

Hahahahahahahahahahaha!

No, it demonstrates that Steve just can't get it done. He spent too much time playing with the band and now has to stay up late to get his homework done, just like any other high school rock star wannabee.

Silly people.

maryT said...

I guess ls missed my post on another blog that explained hahaha.
It is code to other trolls, and I decoded it thru my dick tracy decoder ring. It really says, hey, we are still stupid. But that code got another troll banned from BC Blue. Careful ls, you could be next.

I had to listen three times to hear that. Without your giving the time, I would have missed it again. I doubt Iggy could have even heard it.

And the media ignoring the threat to kill Baird, or for iggy to call out the person, and refusing to condemn Reid for his orders to kill our PM, could be twisted to say liberals support assassinating their opponents.
Wow, that's pretty bad. Far worse than putting up your opponents for months in gunsights, AND THEN THEY GET SHOT!!! And then taking it down and trying to make the story about your hurt feelings. Priceless!

A real treat today, hunter, I must admit. One your most laughable posts in months. Hey it's not even Friday!

Hahahahahahahahaha!

Okey dokey.

Who is BC Blue?

Careful ls, you could be next.
I'll be sure to review my personal security. Thanks for the warning.

Laurie Johnson said...

Oh please Hunter please send liberal supporter over to monsterinthewest.com. I ever so much want a leftard troll of my own. I know they are like bed bugs as you have warned me, but I promise to feed him a steady diet of right thinking and will refute him at every turn.

CanadianSense said...

LS

really cracks me up!

You party polled behind the NDP in Quebec recently.

Your leader was never elected by Liberals in a democratic contest. They rejected him in 2006 ABI.

Liberals bragged in 2009 about the $ 4 million in the second qtr. How did that work out?

In his 2nd year he is polling worse than Dion, farther behind Layton.

Liberals don't own a SINGLE ballot issue.

The party is barely hanging on with 77 seats in 2008.

Ignatieff beat the NDP in Winnipeg! Other than that he is 1/7 in two years at the helm.

Thank you LS for your rabid support of the Liberals.

Rob Ford voters in Toronto will be available -Iggy has it on good authority.

LS, next time don't mix alcohol with medication.

liberal supporter said...

I'm sure you'd like that "Laurie Johnson", wouldn't you? You'd like me to go to your site, so you can get my IP number from your site logs. Given maryt's veiled threat, who knows what might come of that? I know for a fact that one "neoconservative" would just love to determine my real world location. And since you likely see no connection between drawing gunsights on people and their subsequently getting shot, I'm sure that if some other "coincidence" occurred after my visiting your IP trap, you would make a nice facebook post denying there could possibly be any connection with it.

Fortunately for me, blogger will only give my information with a court order, and only pursuant to something substantial. My mockery and insults are far below that bar. They simply won't help with some party hack's attempts at intimidation.

Instead you will be reduced to CS style trash talking, complete with allegations of mental illness and alcoholism. Truly the icing on the cake. Good night!

Hahahahahahahaha!

CanadianSense said...

What does having a glass of wine with viagara in your case have to with mental illness?

Your post today is unusually goofy even for you.

If you have not mixed medication with alcohol my bad!

Bad day at the office maybe?

Cheer up LS.

Your party of Toronto will merge with the NDP in two years. (tops!)

hunter said...

I can always tell when one of my posts hits the lefties over the head, LS shows up and spews.

Poor thing has been banned from lots of Conservative blogs, but the occasional posting from lefty trolls gives us a good reading on Liberal talking points. It's not pretty, they have no policy, no plan and no leader.

LS only spews at "safe" sites Laurie. As if we care who or what he is.

Laurie Johnson said...

Hey L/S, when I comment and post at least I have the conjones to back up what I write with my true identity. Laurie Johnson is my real name and I am not unlike what I read from your comments living scared that some one might find out who I am. I really don`t care who you are. If you want to be anonimus no biggy. Hunter and many other bloggers perfer to keep their personal identitys private for very understanable reasons. They want to keep their families safe and not have to put up with the attacks that the left love to engage in on a personal level. The blog is where we hash it out. L/S if you go to my site you will see that I have a standing offer that as long as an article is free of profanity and reasonibly written I will post it and see what I can do to get your thoughts spread. Hope to heare from you soon MONSTER

Ooh forget me, I'm a whacked-out nutjob...hahahahahahahahahahaha.

gimbol said...

Whether you agree with the content of an advertisement or not, the product will stand a better chance of buy in from the intended consumer if the content is true.
Ignateif has made those statements, and they are attributed to a source.
If anyone wants to refute the statements attributed by media sources, please do so. That is the only defence against these ads.
To have the media complain for the liberals only gives the conservatives free air time and gets more people to look at the ads.

Eskimo said...

The thumb sucker's (troll) allegation that there is a connection between the so-called 'gun sights' from the SarahPAC website and the Arizona shooting only confirms that leftism/liberalism is a certifiable barking mad disease.

hunter said...

Eskimo, the lefties can't help themselves, they are so hateful that they will blame Conservatives even when it has been proven that the guy was a mentally unstable idiot.

They also ignore Obama talking about bringing GUNS to a knife fight and Democrats using targets in their ads.

You should also note that LS will not comment on Ignatieff ignoring a guy shouting "Kill him" when Ignatieff was calling Baird all sorts of names. Also LS will not comment on Scott Reid and his "Kill Him" directed at the PM. LS will try to turn the tables and blame Conservatives for anything. Just don't point out any facts to LS, he can't handle them.

Liberals, the new nomads in our political world.

That's hilarious, it would seem my presence has riled your people, especially the one that made their very own fake id with my name on it. I'm flattered by the imitation, and amused.

Poor thing has been banned from lots of Conservative blogs,
Lots, eh? Can you substantiate that statement or is it your usual fact free nonsense? I am only banned at "neoconservative" as far as I know, he doesn't like that he can't track me down. One is not "lots". You don't mind being challenged on your "facts", do you? You're not going to whine are you?


but the occasional posting from lefty trolls gives us a good reading on Liberal talking points. It's not pretty, they have no policy, no plan and no leader.
And you have no imagination. Can't you come up with some substance instead of regurgitating whatever the BTs tell you?

LS only spews at "safe" sites Laurie. As if we care who or what he is.
You sound exactly like Saddam Hussein did when he told his exiled cousins "all is forgiven". They did enjoy a good full day back in Iraq before they were killed.

liberal supporter said...

Eskimo, the lefties can't help themselves, they are so hateful that they will blame Conservatives even when it has been proven that the guy was a mentally unstable idiot.
Nice attempt at rewriting the situation. Person is drawn with crosshairs. Person is shot. It is reasonable to see a link. You look at a low temperature on a thermometer and conclude there is no climate change. Why the hypocrisy on questioning if there is a link?

They also ignore Obama talking about bringing GUNS to a knife fight and Democrats using targets in their ads.
You claim putting crosshairs on people is a "metaphor". No, a metaphor is referring to bringing a knife to a gun fight. No person is being placed in a gunsight. I don't really expect you to get the difference though.
I don't expect you to get the difference between a bullseye (target) and a crosshairs (gunsight). But I hope you do get it if you happen to own firearms.

You should also note that LS will not comment on Ignatieff ignoring a guy shouting "Kill him" when Ignatieff was calling Baird all sorts of names.
You should read more carefully, since I pointed out I didn't notice it until you gave an exact time position. Considering the microphone location, I don't see how Ignatieff even heard it.

Also LS will not comment on Scott Reid and his "Kill Him" directed at the PM.
It was a dumb choice of words, which he retracted. Unlike some who continued to leave pictures of gunsights on people despite said people taking exception and pointing out there are consequences. Only after several deaths and injuries was the picture taken down and accompanied with pretending someones hurt feelings are more important than a mass murder.

LS will try to turn the tables and blame Conservatives for anything. Just don't point out any facts to LS, he can't handle them.
Speaking of facts, how's that list of where I am "banned"?
