An epithet applied to the leader of the NDP by Conservative Party MPs and their fellow right-wing travellers, with the aim of discrediting/drowning out their adversaries by dishonestly portraying them as hating the Canadian military and hugging a foreign organization whose policies more closely resemble the Conservative Party's own, rather than addressing, in good faith, the arguments and policies of the person and party in question -- thus demonstrating their own status as the poster children for demagoguery.
"Taliban Jack! Taliban Jack!", some government members screeched at Jack Layton when he rose to speak in the House.
