Brockback conservatives…

Here’s the controversial propaganda being handed out by the Young Liberals.

Are the Young Liberals insulting gays and lesbians by using homosexuality as an implied insult?

Here’s Macleans take:

Liberals love to brag about how open they are toward homosexuals.

Tough to explain, then, the printed gay joke some are handing out at the expense of George W. Bush and Stephen Harper.

Riffing on a poster promoting “Brokeback Mountain,” a movie about two cowboys who fall in love, the small sticker shows the U.S. president and Canadian prime minister striking lovelorn poses in cowboy hats.

Under the title “Brokeback Conservatism,” the sticker describes “a story about two friends who share ideas, ideologies and long walks on the beach.”

    Oh conservative media…
    the joke is not to imply homosexuality as an insult.

    Here is my take:

    the idea is that by linking the two man together romantically, the creator is protesting that the two men are no longer maintaining a rational and diplomatic relationship as leaders of two countries but tied into some irrational unexplainable messy conservative allegiance….

    the fact that both leaders hate homosexuals and they are depicted in a gay romance poster is just an added bonus.

    If we roll back in time to the 80s, I am sure they would have put Thatcher and Mulroney together in a poster of some lame flick back then if they had to. Would that be an insult against hetrosexuality then?
