"Shame on" Trudeau, Mulcair for using "images of a dead child as a political tool"

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder
 

Of the three leaders, Stephen Harper had the best response to the tragic death of little Aylan Kurdi, and to the migrant crisis in general.



Harper reminded Canadians that while Canada is already providing humanitarian relief to Syria and elsewhere, our military is also fighting to destroy ISIS -- the terrorists who are  primarily responsible for the situation.

Meanwhile, the NDP's Tom Mulcair blames the crisis on our soldiers, not the terrorists.

He simply doesn't have the facts about the conflict in Syria, where "there are no good guys to side with."

Justin Trudeau, meanwhile, doesn't fathom the problems refugees face in Turkey, getting the proper designation to get to other countries, like Canada.

It's infuriating to watch Mulcair and Trudeau exploit the death of a toddler simply to score political points against the PM.

This election is the biggest circus ever JT and Mulclair are dangerous. I honestly don’t’ like everything Harper does but he is so so so far the best Candidate. For the Record, a lot of Syrian people are very nice, but would Canada be a good place for them? I don’t think so personally.

One has to think that somewhere sometime there was a meeting between Trudeau and the CBC to make this the election issue. I thought Mulcair and Trudeau said this should not be politicized?

“the NDP’s Tom Mulcair blames the crisis on our soldiers, not the terrorists.”
Absolutely absurd. Obviously it is an outright lie. Sometimes the Rebel brings up some valid points, but you are trying too hard this time.

Rick – also our laws restrict doing much of anything without evidence of crime the Crown has reasonable chance of proving in court. The global jihad is well-funded. They have big, influential lawyers. Hopefully CSIS is keeping an eye on the threat and can gather enough evidence to make a case that we can win.

I sent the following to some big shots at the CBC. On the cc, I asked them to fact check what I wrote. The addresses may be handy for you guys in the future.
KILL THE CBC! KILL THE CBC!!
Fin Donnelly was on Power and Politics today. So was the story on the two Conservative candidates who were kicked out. I have been calling the CBC a left wing propaganda machine for a long time now. Let me point out some facts that occurred today that justifies my wanting of our, yes OUR, 1.1 BILLION dollars to stop going to the CBC.

- Fin Donnelley was interviewed alone with nobody to argue against what he said. I am so upset that from now on I will be referring to Fin Donnelly as “Lying Prick”. With no counter comments, the lying prick had it easy.
- The first question asked to him by the lady was “OK tell us your story”. How convenient for the lying prick.
- To the CBC’s lady’s credit. She played a video from a few days ago which completely contradict what the lying prick was saying today, Only the lying prick commented. Even a two cent lawyer like Mulcair would have been able to expose the lying prick’s lies.
- The lying pricks interview was the shortest of the day. The report on the two Conservatives was much longer.
- Later on that show, they have the Power Panel. it is where experts comment on the days events ( the one with helium head Rob Silver and flaming Ian Dipstick). Not one mention of the lying prick. IS THE CBC LEFT WING. God no
- Guess which topic was discussed the most. Yes, the two conservative candidates who did something three years ago. WHEN THEY WERE NOT CANDIDATES.
Why is a French citizen running to be Canada’s Prime Minister. Not newsworthy.

As a men’s rights activist I have to ask……why does the body of a child invoke such outrage when the body of that same male aged …oh let’s say 33….would be dismissed as normal and disposable.

Every person with half a heart feels compassion and empathy for that poor little boy washed up on the beach as well as his brother and mother (remember them – there was no photo) who also died. for the Liberal and NDP leaders to suggest that Harper or the conservatives don’t have compassion is despicable. Or is it only the brain chemistry of left leaning human beings that have compassion and empathy? To stand on the death of this little boy is in very poor taste at best. It is too bad that too many voters buy into this thinking and demonize Harper or the conservatives for this awful tragedy. Those who do this are only revealing the ugliness of their own hate and lack of sincere compassion. To use this story for political points tells me what a person is all about.
I was listening to the cbc radio program Cross Country Check Up and one caller made the pertinent point of refugees in other places around the world. Well what about them Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Mulcair!? Certainly we can and should be talking about the current Syrian crisis. There will be some tomorrow not long from now When another humanitarian crisis will strike. Indeed, there are many going on right now that we are not even aware of. Canada cannot save the world. To those who will pounce on me for an inability to read between the lines, I do believe we should be providing humanitarian aid and taking in refugees. Like so many other Rebel followers I agree there needs to be some careful management and strong leadership on this crisis. We can’t let people in without scrutiny. We cannot just start throwing out numbers like 40000 that we are going to take in without some thought for how it will be managed or security risks mitigated. Why can’t Trudeau and Mulcair understand this? If they do why are they not acknowledging these challenges? And, why do so many Canadians fall n line with these very unsophisticated thinkers. I have concluded that there are many unsophisticated thinkers in Canada. There are many voters who have limited critical thinking capabilities and are not particularly rational. My criticism is moving more against the Canadian voter that enables politics like that of Trudeau and Mulcair.
God help the Syrian refugees. God help Canada do the right thing. God help the Canadian electorate and elevate the level of political discourse in this country. God please help! There is little help to be found elsewhere.

Yes, an excellent article.

From my perspective, the real “Canadian” issue surrounding this escalating refugee disaster is not whether the “picture’ was staged for political purposes as a few have suggested, or whether it was an attempt to garner more global awareness of the horrible consequences of much of the turmoil in the Middle East (but for some reason just this current situation consumes the Media and not the refugee disasters that have been occurring for decades), or even whether or not Canada could have been doing more to help refugees (and for no logical reason this would have prevented the young boy from drowning?)
But instead, the events of the last week have provided clear evidence that the Leadership of Canada’s two opposition political parties operate by the ethic of “the end justifies the means.” In this case the end is securing political power, and the means is through immorally exploiting the personal tragedies of the disadvantaged and blatantly lying to accuse their political opponents of misdemeanors and however else their stories can be spun.
And I specifically note that this behavior is directed by the (unaccountable) Leadership of these two parties. I have many friends who are loyal supporters of the Liberals and the NDP, but who are embarrassed and disgusted at what their Parties are doing. “We could have been so positive.” they complain. It’s almost sad to see some of the old-time faithful MP’s trying to rationalize the depth to which their parties have sunk. How can Canadians trust these two parties to ever act ethically and to do what is right, if their ultimate ethical guideline is to say or do whatever will persuade the ill-informed to cast their vote for them? Hasn’t that been a key weakness in our political process for centuries, except the consequences nowadays could be disastrous.

He’s been on TV a lot lately and as a result his ratings will go up. However, I will be still interested to see what happens when, if elected to the premiership, he actually has to deal with governing. How will many think of him then?

I think we should just nuke Syria then we don’t have to bring in any refugees to Canada. We don’t want them here either. There are probably Terrorist among them.

To stop further floods of Syrian refugees, it is time for the West – and yes, that includes those cowardly Europeans (except the French and Dutch) – to begin a serious bombing campaign against ISIS. Take out the oil wells, pipelines and all oil-infrastructure; destroy electricity production, bridges, telephone exchanges, cell-phone towers, roads, administrative centers, all vehicles moving or not, and make systematic use of naplam on all concentrations of ISIS fighters. Air cover can and should be 24/7. If done right, the ISIS state can be degraded to the stone age within a week to ten days. The other thing is to go after business men and companies that deal with ISIS. Freeze their assets, make it illegal to insure their products, and arrest them. Once the world sees ISIS getting seriously hurt and losing, the number of recruits will drop dramatically and the stream of refugees will dwindle. Also face the hard fact that Assad is not the worst problem in the Middle East. A brutal dictator yes, but a secular dictator and a stable one. By a long shot, he is the lesser of two evils. Remember that IN WW II we lined up with Stalin to defeat the Nazis.

Richard Brinkman….stop crying over spilt milk. Of course Canada does not jump to the protests of every ex-pat group…..notably the Tamil Tigers.

What "peaceful means " of resolving a middle east civil war fired by the passions of Jihadis would you suggest exactly?
commented 2015-09-06 15:24:38 -0400
Sunni Muslims constituted 87-90% of the world’s Muslim population. The Shia Muslims have a plan to drive all Sunni Muslims out of the middle east and the west is just naive enough to fall for it.
25% of Iraq’s Muslim population is Sunni — or approximately eight million souls.
In Syria, 75% are Sunni — approximately 17 million Syrian souls are potential refugees.
This does not address the millions more potential Sunni refugees throughout the region wanting to invade western civilizations.
If this happens, civilization as we know it, will collapse

I have experienced what Richard Vanderlubbe did and it really pisses me off. I am the son of an immigrant from the 60’s. My father was very grateful to Canada. He gave more into Canada than he took. Today it is very different. People come into our country and start sucking from the treasury from day one. It is very wrong to let in people who don’t appreciate Canada’s generosity ( and that generosity costs the government’s coffers dearly ). There must be some significance to swearing an oath to Canada. Asking for the removal of a niqab during a swearing in ceremony is not too much. And then to have them ridicule our religions and culture. I am sick of being told that I will be going to hell because I believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ. If they have a problem with our religions and cultures, they should not be in Canada.

Jay Kelly – when the Liberals and NDP claim that this is PMSH fault, then the in-depth look is warranted. Once that initial partisan lie has been spread it must be countered. It is tragic that people have to die over things like false teeth, but we can’t force them to adopt the free market capitalism that has made us so rich.

What the NDP and Liberals are doing with this little boy’s death is shameful – but then, the Left has no shame. They know that Canada has provided $107 M for refugee assistance in Iraq and has given over $100 Million for Syrian refugees in addition to committing to take in more than 10,000 refugees by 2017. ( http://ottawacitizen.com/news/politics/explainer-what-has-canada-been-doing-to-help-the-syrian-refugees ) We are the sixth largest donor in the world. The NDP and Liberals know this but are obviously misleading Canadians on this score.

In addition to taking in Christian refugees from the the Middle East, the PM should allow Jews from the EU into Canada. These people fear for their lives. This would also help to compensate, in a small way, for the time when Jews were refused entry, during WW2. They ended up back in Germany and the death camps. The LIBERAL PM responsible, should have his name removed from the History Books.
commented 2015-09-05 20:10:45 -0400
The reason the parliament crowd doesn’t want Russia to engage and destroy the Islamic State is because then the West can’t attack the Syrian military anymore. If Syrian government buildings/equipment are bombed by the West, and Russia is bloodied, you people are in a world of shit, and you know it too. So instead of actually have Islamic State destroyed by the Russians, at no cost to us, you’ll continue this ridiculous campaign to overthrow Assad. Tell me, if Islamic State is attacking Assad, do you truly have an incentive to destroy them at this point? when in reality, they’re doing your twisted bidding.

Accept defeat. Cowards and liars funded terrorists, they’ve failed at the mission of quickly removing Assad, now Russia is there providing reinforcements and promising to destroy the Islamic State. Game over. Stop attacking Assad before this escallates even further, the man did no harm to Christians, who’s side are you on?

If George Soros came to Canada and funded radical Indians to rise up and cause trouble (He already has, it’s called “IDLE NO MORE”) the Canadian government would me that force and defend itself… As it has. Telling Assad that he can’t defend against Sunni militants is a purely left-wing doctrine that we call “Do as I say, not as I do”.
