Satire Site Punctures the Left

My favorite form of humour is satire – but you don’t really see a lot of satire from the right these days at least in Canada.

So that’s why I was delighted to discover the Iconoclast, a web site that features some brilliant satiric jabs at the left.

The Iconoclast’s “Top Headlines”, for instance, feature particularly biting attacks.

Here’s one hilarious item from that section which caught my eye:

by Marni Malarkey for Iconoclast
TORONTO -- CUPE Ontario, the provincial branch of Canada's largest labour union that recently encouraged a boycott of Israeli goods in Canada, has announced plans to send representatives to Abu Musab al Zarqawi's funeral. "We were heartbroken to hear of his murder by Crusader forces," said Sid Ryan, CUPE Ontario's president, to reporters outside his office. Abu was a freedom-fighter, a man of the people, a man of peace. If it hadn't been for American imperialism, he would never have had to harm a fly." Ryan broke down in tears, describing the Zarqawi he knew and loved. "He sent me a telegram of encouragement, just last week, when I was receiving so much criticism for our boycott of Israel. That's the kind of guy he was. It didn't matter how busy he was. He never forgot his friends."

As a 14 year union member I believe this sort of shots at our union leaders should be relentless. Keep it up!!!
