UK Labour Party Tweets This Bizarre Father’s Day Ad And Twitter Users Didn’t Hold Back
(Tea Party 247) – Liberals have no respect for or desire to preserve the traditional family unit which is essential to maintaining a properly functioning and health society. Without a mom and a dad in the home children suffer. It isn’t some radical right-wing, conservative opinion. It’s a fact.
Nearly 1 in 4 American children live in a fatherless home. This problem effects 19.7 million children, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Children who grow up without a father in the home are 4 times more likely to live in poverty, are more likely to have behavioral problems, more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol and end up in prison, 2 times more likely to be obese, and 2 times more likely to drop out of high school.
So, you’d think governments would be particularly motivated to recognize and honor men who are there for their children on Father’s Day yet liberals, like the UK’s Labour Party would rather pander and make political statements with bizarre ads like the one the Labour Party posted to Twitter that left countless users baffled.
Was it a shameful LGBT plug to promote trans “dads?” Was it implying that black fathers are more absent? Was it intentionally depicting men as weak and effeminate? Who knows, but one thing is for sure, it most certainly did not honor fathers.
“The coronavirus crisis has reminded us just how important connecting with our loved ones is. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and carers out there. #HappyFathersDay,” tweeted Labour’s official account.

However, the image used to illustrate the message featured a cartoon “father” who looked more like a woman.
“That dad looks like he’s going for a bra fitting for himself,” remarked one respondent.
That dad looks like he's going for a bra fitting for himself.
What a hunched back, docile, pathetic excuse of a man.

Others thought the image suggested Labour was reinforcing the “racist” stereotype of absent black fathers.
“Is this a dig at the black community? Absentee fathers?” asked one.
Is this a dig at the black community?

“Haha they’ve given up on black man being parents!” commented another.

Newswars points out that, “In reality, Labour had probably intended to use a cartoon character with a vague gender identity because they were terrified of offending transgender activists, who vociferously assert that “all trans men are men” and vice versa.”
One individual who calls himself a “trans dad” (and is almost certainly a parody account) applauded the message.
I am glad the Labour party has shown a picture of a dad who menestrates. Well done#transmenaremen

Others noted the complete lack of representation of white people.
Why is the indigenous population not being represented here?

While others remarked on why the Labor Party seems to continually lose elections. Alan Freestone said, “I can’t imagine why you lost so many seats outside of London in the last election. Oh no wait…I can.”

Twitter user Arthur said, “And Labour wonder why they’ve lost so many voters”

Mark Adams pointed out that the ad was just liberal pandering saying, “Blimey you’ve even turned Father’s Day into some sort of woke tribute. No wonder you keep not getting elected as government.”

Judging by the majority of Twitter users mocking, ridiculing, and otherwise expressing displeasure with the ad, we would say the Labour Party’s attempt to promote “diversity” instead of applaud hard-working, dedicated fathers on Father’s Day fell very, very short.
