The NDP’s “crazy” far-left kicked out Mulcair. What does that mean for Canada?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander
 

Over the weekend, Thomas Mulcair was given the boot by the NDP, at their Edmonton policy convention.

The NDP says they’re going to take two years to pick a new leader. So, with Harper and Mulcair gone, Justin Trudeau has gotten rid of his two top opponents.

(Who do you think is going to ask him tough questions in Parliament from now on? Elizabeth May?)

Thomas Mulcair was the sanest person in his party. But over the weekend, he was kicked out, and in came the full-on socialist environmentalist LEAP Manifesto. (Imagine Noam Chomsky and David Suzuki getting drunk and writing down their dream ideas…)

And then the NDP actually said that Alberta’s own extremist NDP premier, Rachel Notley, was too too pro-oil!

So what does this all mean? I’ll tell you what I think, but let’s face it:

When you think back fondly on Thomas Mulcair as a moderate, that tells you how far to the left Canada has slid...

NEXT: Veteran Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein on why the federal NDP's LEAP Manifesto is so horrible.

THEN: I'll give you an UPDATE on Faith Goldy's field work in Halifax, where she is uncovering potentially shocking media censorship on the refugee issue.

And FINALLY: Your letters to me, the nice and the not-so-nice!

Hell hath no fury like a a political ideology scorned, rendered 3rd in party status of parliament.
There’s something terribly tragic about unrequited love, emotions ranges from bitterness and cynicism to the most heart-rending melancholy and despair.
NDPee federal rule was so close & than suddenly so far away again, forsaken.
“A mighty pain to love it is,
And ’tis a pain that pain to miss;
But of all pains, the greatest pain
It is to love, but love in vain.”
This convention was a bloodletting offering some relief, yet wait is that a saviour in the shadows, perchance saint-Jacks’ spouse can lead the way and return the lost MAGIC !
I hope Tommy championing the vulgar niqab was worth the PAIN !

What bothers me is that no one tells the truth any more. It used to be on a pedestal but now you wipe crap on the truth. What happened?

I repeat: Mulcair has a future passing brown paper envelopes from Librano clients and laundering the cash into party slush funds – Quebec Librano bag man. Not like he isn’t used to seeing envelopes stuffed with cash poked at him. but it is a short term job because the fed-Lib corruption will peak early this time because of their airhead leader not caring and a major criminal scandal will end this current government long before its due date.

The NDP? – well they will now be the rump party of violent campus communists – never be legit again as either a socialist or labor party and certainly never electable.

I know this has nothing to do with this show but I have to say this. I just watched a piece on ctv about a peaceful get together by natives and all I saw was G-20 all over again. In the middle of the road was a man with a flag and I watched 3 cops attack him and throw him to the ground. Now I’m not sure but didn’t some dipshit go on the news and say that Canadian cops would never be allowed to use those types of tactics again. Wow! How far we have come. It seems in Canada that the only people that can riot and break things is mussy’s and they get away with it. We peaceful Canadian’s that march and raise our voices get beat to death and jail. Hmm seems a little one sided.

Glad to see Mulcair ditched.he was a nasty vile man ,especially toward Mr. Harper. There was at one time in this country a degree of RESPECT on parliament hill between party leaders and toward Prime Ministers. That all disappeared in the last election. With Mulcair ,he thought absolutely that he was going to be P.M. and all he had to do was to portray Mr. Harper as a man with dirty little secrets and hidden agendas and trying to ruin this country. In reality Mr.Harper was trying to help the people and and better our country.

They will be in the same league as the green party two or three seats at best

Justin is now guaranteed at least three full terms, with both the NDP & CPC badly in disarray. The collapse of the BQ will just fuel the indeafeatability of our Natural Governing Party, and most Canadians will be happy when that.

When the global economy collapses and governments default on their debts, some will likely assassinate Bernie Trudeau. It’s difficult for Bernie Trudeau to last three terms, when he’s shot dead befor the end of his first term.

Agreed??

Re Sean Penson: How about none of us respond to any of “Sean Penson’s” comments. Ever! Nothing drives one of these trolls more nuts than being ignored. Thanks…………..

I believe Mulcair was (and is) a man of principles, not MY principles to be sure, but principles none the less…. unlike JT. I had to admire him for that, but God help us all if he ever became Prime Minister. I believe he would have lead this Nation down the road to ruin faster than JT is currently doing… but with much more honor and dignity.

So the plan for the New Democrats is to move even further left than the liberals?

Glad to see that only one person, so far, took the Troll’s bait.

As for the NDPee, let them all go and jerk each other off while they dream about Stalin. That is all they are good for.

It would be more productive if everybody concentrated on ways to rid Canada of the Traitor who is misruling, misleading and generally shafting Canadians.

His (Trudeau’s) actions can only lead to bloodshed and death. This is not a problem for him, he knows the blood and the death will all be Ours.

He knows what the result of his actions will be but he dose not give a Dam, it is all Money, Money, Money, in his Saudi Bank Account.

Mulcair will resurface as a Librano Quebec capo and remake himself as a LPC bag man – and the Dipper party will fade to a 10-15 seat rump which will have to fund raise at campus safe spaces.

Bullying is part of the growing up process. I was the fat, short , acne guy. Never ran home to mom, stood my ground. If some looser gave me the cut your throat sign, I would be up to it, Got my ass whooped a few times, but never by the same bully twice. Stand up, be strong. Do not be a Justin or Obama

NDP members should be required to take a course in basic economics.

I hope NDP will just melt with the ice!

The NDP got the opposition status due to the Quebec protest vote against the Block. Going hard (fanatical) left won’t help them become more popular.

The NDP’s new motto – “Home of the Politically Insane.”

The shape of things to come – Muslim “refugees” acting however they’d like with the full support of school staff & under the cover of the mainstream media. This is the legacy of idiotic Liberal policies – expect it to get much, much worse.

Canada is toast. Forget about it. Lets start worrying about Alberta and save a piece of what we can. The NDP are another eastern party who are anti Alberta and anti west.

A centrist approach to all issues, and a recommitment to international cooperation in the United Nations, and our battle against climate change is the key
