It looks like a bunch of left-wingers are setting up a coalition designed to stop Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party. (H/T to Adam Daifallah.)
Called the “Think Twice Coalition” it’s made up of the usual leftie types -- union bosses, artists, environmentalists, feminists --- and they want to warn Canadians about the Tory’s “scary” agenda.
So watch for a massive “Think Twice” anti-Harper media blitz over the next few days …. Oops wait a minute, I just remembered, they can’t run a massive anti-Harper ad campaign.
There’s an election gag law in effect.
This law actually makes it illegal for the Coalition (or any other group for that matter) to effectively make its point through paid advertising.
Too bad. Bet they would have run an effective ad campaign too.
And here's the irony: left-wingers generally applauded the gag law when it was enacted because they saw it as a way to make elections "fairer" and to stop the “rich from buying elections”.
Wonder if they think the gag law is such a good idea now? Wonder if they ever thought they would be lumped in with the rich?
Wonder if they ever think about anything?
