"Credibility catastrophe": Green Party scold Elizabeth May admits she can't ride a bike

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Even Elizabeth May herself calls it a credibility "catastrophe": The leader of the Green Party -- who lectures everyone else about their carbon footprint -- admits that she can't ride a bike!

This is just hypocritical and bizarre.

The Quebec media thinks so too; they're made a big deal out of her admission.

But the Media Party in the rest of Canada hasn't picked up on it. Why?

PS: Did you know May is afraid of WiFi, and is "glad" she doesn't have it in her home?

@jimmy Da Silva Elizabeth may doesn’t have a hope in Hell of winning and yet she gets invited to debates with the other Prime Minister hopefuls. The special treatment the main stream media affords her doesn’t equate.

I’m with Rae… How about “Bicycles of the world Unite! You have nothing to lose but Lizzie May riding you!”…
commented 2015-09-10 00:47:30 -0400
And why is the CBC keeping the Elizabeth May interview with Mansbridge until Friday night? Special treatment? They made Harper look tired and dry while making Mulcair and Trudeau seem eager and intelligent. They will probably make May look folksy and down-to-earth. Grrr, CBC.

Rae Fraser said: “All bicycles , are secretly relieved .” Hahahaha! That’s funny! Thanks!

Ooppse Boopsee Lizzie May. Do you have an iPad or a laptop or electricity. Guess not if you are no carbon a phobe.

It is good to see this, this article isn’t about her politics. It is though about her brain power. I mean even third world human beings can ride a bike, and they might not have ever seen one. Just give them an hour and they will have figured it out.
Then we have a Canadian lady that has seen bikes all of her nature life. Then she actually states that she can’t ride one. This isn’t politics, this is idiotic.

Thank you, Jason. You won’t find such a quote, but have fun looking.
commented 2015-09-09 14:02:03 -0400
Jason, did you notice how Terry phrased that sentence, “Find me a clip of Elizabeth May saying that everyone should ride bicycles.”

He phrases it as an impossible statement to prove. Never would anyone ever say “everyone” should ride bicycles. So it is likely unproveable. You can bet he phrased it exactly like that so as to make it impossible. It is probably likely to find Elisabeth saying people should ride bicycles.

I’ll look later. I have to get ready for work. But I’ll get on that when I get back. And degrading my intellect is very poor taste.
commented 2015-09-09 13:59:41 -0400

In regards to this story – who gives a shit? That’s the point. Ezra is acting like he broke some major news story – about someone mind you, that doesn’t have a hope in hell of ever being politically competitive.

It’s like why waste space on someone who isn’t even a remote threat to anyone?
commented 2015-09-09 13:59:26 -0400
When describing Ms. May, the term ‘Lady’ doesn’t easily slide from one’s lips. As her party’s chief executive, you’d expect a modicum of professionalism, not some of the time, but all of the time. I believe she is a categorical failure on many fronts.
commented 2015-09-09 13:50:05 -0400
Jason: Certainly, although I think you’re bright enough to figure it out. You’re committing a couple of basic logical fallacies here, very common among Ezra’s fans and admirers.
I’ll make it simple. Find me a clip of Elizabeth May saying that everyone should ride bicycles.
commented 2015-09-09 13:46:29 -0400
Well Jimmy, so you’re saying May CAN and DOES ride a bicycle?

And Terry, please explain what you don’t agree with?
commented 2015-09-09 13:29:24 -0400
Jason: sorry, no. Not even a very good try.
commented 2015-09-09 13:21:51 -0400

Well that’s the key thing – IF it’s factually proven. It never is.
commented 2015-09-09 13:20:24 -0400
Jimmy, I have noticed that anything you don’t agree with, even if it’s factually proven, you dismiss as hate, rage, fear, hyperbole, or theory. But trying to convince you the sky is blue would be an effort in futility, so I’ll stop while I’m ahead.

Terry, even though this story is “one of lesser importance”, even you have to see the hypocrisy is May’s words. “Don’t ‘enter subject line here’ while I do the opposite”. I’m pretty sure that’s the definition of being a hypocrite. And in my opinion, that’s the whole point behind this story.
commented 2015-09-09 12:45:36 -0400

No, it’s censorship that we have both PROVEN.
commented 2015-09-09 12:43:54 -0400

I guess you don’t see the irony in the fact that conservatives on The Rebel endlessly spew deluded hate, rage, fear mongering, hyperbole and boogieman theories.
commented 2015-09-09 12:33:08 -0400
Jamie: Ol’ Ezra knows exactly what he’s doing – enraging the lefties, amusing the more intelligent right wingers, pumping up the stupider right wingers with a little synthetic faux-outrage, and above all – most important – driving up the hits on the site. I enjoy it: read the comments below and see how many of the Rebel Readers actually seem to think this is something they should take seriously.
commented 2015-09-09 12:31:54 -0400
Richard posted, “I had no idea The Rebel Media censors it’s Rebels here… a bit shocked.”

Well Richard, that is what Terry and Jimmy claim. Deluded bubble of reality.
commented 2015-09-09 12:24:25 -0400
EILEEN MCRAE – thank you for the tip, will follow this Quebec premier’s new Bill 4, and anything akin to this Bill here in Alberta. TERRY RUDDEN – I had no idea The Rebel Media censors it’s Rebels here… a bit shocked.
commented 2015-09-09 12:22:18 -0400
Jimmy says, "Terry, Thank you as always for bringing common sense, logic and reason to The Rebel … "

You lefties can live in your deluded bubble reality all you like, but none of you bring common sense, logic nor reason to TheRebel. Leftist propaganda, insults and hate is what you people bring here, though a point in your favour, I do see a lot of bile posted your direction, but you lefties do give it back equally as well, so your records are not so clean as you pretend.
commented 2015-09-09 12:17:08 -0400
I think ol’ Ezra just throws out these silly little stories knowing that it’ll get under some skins. I’m sure he enjoys your indignation. Now, as for Ms. May and her inabilities, let’s not make a big deal out of it. After all, doesn’t it just kind of make sense that her physical balance should be in sync with her other balances?
commented 2015-09-09 11:57:13 -0400

Thank you as always for bringing common sense, logic and reason to The Rebel for the conservatives here that are seething with hate and rage. Keep exposing The Rebel for their blatant hypocrisy and full on bullshit.

This should be The Rebel’s tag line: Fighting To Lower Canadian IQs And Journalism Standards Since 2015.

commented 2015-09-09 11:25:16 -0400
Eileen, I absolutely support your right to say and post anything you want. In fact, I encourage it. I’m appalled every time the Rebel censors one of its contributors: I believe you have a right to say what you think, and I believe it’s a GOOD thing that more Canadians learn that some of their fellow citizens believe Muslims should be barred from political office and deported, that Premier Wynne is an “atheist communist pig who should DIE”, and so on.
But don’t confuse “Free Speech” with “CONSEQUENCE-free speech.”
commented 2015-09-09 11:13:51 -0400
Isn’t it great that we live in a democratic society with a strong Conservative leadership that protects our safety and security so that we STILL HAVE THE RIGHT OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH, so that we can comment on sites such as the Rebel? I would not have it any other way! However, after researching the Quebec premier’s new Bill 4, I am quite concerned over the limitations that this LIBERAL premier is advocating for curtailing FREEDOM of SPEECH. Perhaps, Richard, Terry, and Jimmy you should do your own research. I would be highly interested in your opinions on this new Quebec bill!
commented 2015-09-09 10:44:16 -0400
TERRY RUDDEN – Good point Terry, I’ve often warned some of the commentators like VLAD, that the recent passing of Harper/ Trudeau’s Bill C51 should be a warning for all Canadians including Rebels to be careful what you say on forums. VLAD’s comments may be Free speech to Vlad but to CSIS may be interpreted as a threat to other people – The Anti Terror Law in place was not enacted for Muslims, Environmentalists and First Nations as some racists here on Rebel have claimed

It was enacted for all who are deemed a threat to other Canadians, Corporations and National Security…

Brinkman as usual your a moron.
May should have had her ass kicked out the door after her drunken Omar Khader bullshit. If she had one ounce of integrity she would have resigned the next day. But I have noticed over the years the socialist parties don’t ever seem to have any integrity. They blame anyone and anything else. Where a conservative would either have resigned or been fired may blames her use of a new medication for her little drunken truth slip. Socialist always need to hide there true beliefs and agenda because if everyone new the truth they would be dead in the water. Living under the NDP or the Liberals in there current form will further lower the peoples trust in government because people will start to realize that they are always hiding the truth and there true goals.
