(UPDATE: Get a NEW "I'm a Harperman" t-shirt from The Rebel! Scroll down to find out more...)
I was born too late to be part of the hippie, draft dodger generation, but I got a good look at that self-absorbed generation thanks to "Harperman."
"Harperman" is a "folk song" about Stephen Harper, and the lyrics are basically every single leftwing talking point about the PM going back over ten years, set to "music."
The song is credited to "Ottawa folk singer" Tony Turner, but Turner actually works in the civil service, at the Ministry of the Environment.
I'm all for free speech, but the trouble is, civil servants are bound by a code of non-partisanship.
Because he violated those workplace non-partisan rules, Turner's been put on paid leave -- he's in a union, remember -- so of course the media has turned him into a hero.
PS: I couldn't help but notice the rest of the people in Turner's video. They're stuck in the 1960s.
The left loves to make fun of the right's "angry old white men," but look at this bunch!
I wonder how many of them work in the civil service too? Will they be reprimanded as well?
And why are they all white? What happened to diversity? (Not that there's much of that in their unionized workplaces -- I explain why in my report.)
UPDATE from Ezra Levant:
The "Harperman" video mocks Harper for many things — including for sending CF-18s to Iraq to fight against the Islamic State terrorists. And of course, being an environmental extremist, that "Harperman" folksinger hates the oilsands too. These and other conservative values define what he calls “Harperman”.
I thought about it for a bit, and I realized: I guess that makes me a Harperman too! I don’t take it as an insult — it’s a summary of what I believe in!
So we at The Rebel have created a simple new T-shirt that proudly says, “I’m a Harperman”. It’s going to drive all my left-wing friends nuts!
You can order your very own Harperman T-shirt on our online store, by clicking here or by clicking on the image below.
I can hardly wait to start wearing mine around town. I just know it will make every hippie, eco-activist, university professor and journalist furious. And every hard-working, law-abiding, patriotic Canadian will give me a knowing thumbs-up!
