Insensitive Douchebaggery was a popular item this week, flying off the shelves like half-price X-Boxes at Walmart on Black Friday (but without the pepper spray, heart attacks and constabulary boots to the head). It was everywhere, like on Old McDoucheald’s farm: here a douche, there a douche, everywhere a douche-douche.
But of all the insensitive douchebaggery cluttering up the week’s cultural brainscape, there was one insensitive douchebag who stood apart from the rest. No, it wasn’t CPC MP Jim Hillyer, whose sophomoric “air gun” gesturing during the gun registry vote last month — almost 6 weeks ago, for those keeping track — was immortalized on a video uploaded to Youtube on the December 6th anniversary of the Polytechnique massacre. Though chances are better than fair-to-middling that Hillyer really is an insensitive douche, it isn’t because of his celebratory Firing of The Air Guns on November 1st.
No, it’s a far more insensitive douchebag who video-clipped Hillyer’s goofy 6-second performance and waited five(5) weeks to upload it to Youtube on the anniversary of Polytechnique.
It’s not hard to imagine what this brainless fuckstick hoped to achieve with this disingenuous, intellectually dishonest and manipulative routine: presumably it was done to make some kind of faux-connection between the CPC and violence against women, with outrage ramped up by posting it on the anniversary of a horrific act of the same. And to some extent it worked, with the more neurotic registry advocates reacting like Pavlov’s slavering curs to a dangling hunk of raw liver. That purposely uploading and spreading around this particular video on that particular day makes the Youtuber a far more insensitive douchebag than Jim Hillyer could ever hope to be was lost on most of them.
But not on me. And since I think such outstanding, above-and-beyond the call of douchey douchebaggery deserves recognition, “SleepyRobAnders” come on down! You’re Swine of the Week!
