Let’s forget about the cow okay? While distasteful, and besides the fact that it leaves a lot to interpretation, it is a far cry from what other pictures graced the Liberal Party website.
And you can say and think what you want about the severity of this issue. However, remember, these photos weren’t funny, and they certainly weren’t a bird pooping on a politician. They were depictions of a Prime Minister and (a well respected) leader of a well respected nation, being killed and/or physically harmed.
There was defiantly a line crossed by the Liberals in even placing such pictures on their website. And even if they didn’t make them, they posted them on their website, and that alone makes them at least partially at fault in this. They gave the creators of these pictures a place to publicly display their total disrespect, sick thoughts, and hatred.
A simple disclaimer and an “opps” from some person on their website doesn’t do it for me at all. The Liberal Leader, the Leader of the Official Opposition, should have come out and personally offered a REAL apology, along with stating why this was wrong and should never be repeated.
