Blogging Tories Campaign Fails
The Bloginng Tories campaign to end funding for Status of Women is now online with a petition.
It is pathetic that since this campaign began last month their petition has a total of 592 signatures. And many of those signatures are from men. You know the guys these rightwhingblogs have been complaining about.
Ohh bestill my beating heart, the masses have spoken. Actually these dweebs deliberately confuse a federal department with a feminist organization, the National Action Committee on the Status of Women, which lobbies the department.
Be that what it may, this campaign is a tempest in a teapot, created by the ladies auxilary of the neo-cons.
The petition should have thousands of signatures the way they claim to speak for all Canadian women. Less than 600 signatures is pathetic and speaks the the failure of the right whing blogs to actually mobilize any grassroots support. They are only good at appearing to speak for a movement, enough to get them some press coverage. But when push comes to shove they are politically weak-tea.
When John Loney was held captive in Iraq, the petition to save our PeakeMakers got over thirty thousand signatures in a few days. 592 over a month is a dribble.
When it began the MSM that made a big deal out of this faux campaign. It should now be reporting on the failure of this campaign, but it won't. Moving on to other issues now. Ironically the campaign came to the attention of the MSM via Steve Janke's whitewhing blog. Anti-feminist Janke is a man. Surprise!
This is all about the Blogging Tory self promoting echo chamber sturm and drang signifying nothing. No real campaign of the masses, just right wing special interest politics.
It is also addressed to the wrong person. It asks the Finance Minister to end funding for the Status of Women.
Fine and dandy except that Status of Women is its own department and cabinet position under Minister of Canadian Heritage and Status of Women - Bev Oda.
Whom BigBlueWave called a radical feminist. Really.
So it's a bunch of radical feminist bureaucrats consulting radical feminists to hear what they want to hear to promote more radical feminism on my dime.”
So they can't even get the who in the petition right and then they accuse Bev Oda of being a feminist bureaucrat. Hilarious.
Of course this is a simple case of misdirected misanthropic myopic mysoginist politics. There I got to use all the M words. Except mother. Ok, their mothers should be ashamed of them.
