Cherniak: Liberals good, Conservatives & pornography bad
In a recent post at his blog, Jason Cherniak seems to think he's stumbled upon the scoop of the year.
In hindsight, however (such things being 20/20) it would seem otherwise.
In a specious little post entitled "Conservative Pornography", Cherniak alleges that the Conservative party stole an image featured in a "Freak out your ex" ad from Stolen Porn Videos, an online pornography website.
As his evidence, he offers a couple of screen caps that feature the same shocked-looking young woman.
From the (notably hillarious) Conservative party ad:
From the porn site itself:
And finally (and allegedly most damning) from the CPC website itself:
So, Cherniak alleges (although not clearly explaining what he was doing at that site) the Conservatives simply must have stolen the image for the ad from a porn website! Those fiends!
Of course, one then suspects that Bored With Ironing is stealing their images from porn websites as well. After all, the expression on her face may be slightly different but by god that's the same young woman!
So, it would seem the image in question is nothing more than a stock image purchased by both the Conservative party and the porn site in question.
Of course, that hasn't prevented various internet dumbfucks from jumping for joy at the prospect of what they think is a juicy scandal.
If this is what passes for scandal amongst this particular bunch, one has to weep for the state of political discourse in this country.
After all, the Conservatives may have apparently coincidentally purchased the same stock photo as some porn site. But it isn't as if they stole hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer's funds, is it? (Great call on that one, by the way, Jason.)
Of course, one may wonder what Cherniak (or his alleged anonymous source) was doing at that site to begin with? Pornography being such a bad thing, apparently.
At least now we know what Cherniak's favourite porn site is.
