How Elizabeth May and the Greens get away with it

Elizabeth May’s performance at the Parliamentary Press Gallery Dinner has prompted me to open my overflowing file of Green Party madness. For some weird reason, I end up with a lot of it.

For my favourite example, I want to take you out to the gently rolling hills of Southwestern Ontario where the rural Green Party vote runs (relatively) strong, and there exists a bizarre confluence of anti-choice policy and environmentalism.

Now it’s not that the Greens are anti-abortion. Far from it.

The anti-choice aspect exists in that they want to limit the number of children women can have.

I first discovered this frightening ideological tendency of Green Party members during the 2008 federal by-election in Guelph, where the Greens had a very strong showing.

I had heard that the Green Party candidate had made a bizarre comment to a farmer and his wife, the proud parents of five children.

Supposedly, having that many kids was irresponsible because it would consume far too much of Earth’s precious resources.

“Wow,” I remember thinking,” they’ll take just about anybody as a candidate, won’t they?”

Then came the federal election of that year, and, on a whim, I decided to read the Green Party platform. Halfway through, I was confronted with a section entitled, “Address the Crisis of Population Growth.

“It is well established that when poverty is alleviated and particularly when women and girls are educated, and have access to primary health care and family planning, political autonomy and economic power, fertility rates drop,” read the platform.

Then, just below that, there were a list of commitments all Green Party MPs would work toward.  The one that jumped out at me was, “Integrate goals for reduced fertility into the overall efforts to reduce poverty.”

After the room stopped spinning, the first question I was able to formulate was: Doesn’t a woman’s right to choose include allowing her to have as many, or as few, children as she wants?

In a world where any conservative leader must spend 92% of any given scrum repeating that they will not ban abortions, the Greens talk openly about “goals for reduced fertility.”

But the next question that came to mind was a far better one. I’m sure you’re thinking it too.

All together now: How can Elizabeth May put something as cray-cray as this in her platform and on her website without anyone noticing or calling her on it?

Well…you ever notice how all radicals claim the right to willfully flout society’s norms because they are the victims of widespread, insidious oppression?

Whether it’s the patriarchy, systematic racism, capitalism, or Western imperialism, there is always a big, evil, dehumanized conspiracy responsible for the problem.

The conspiracy must be massive and all-powerful, because it has to be responsible for everything. And it has to be responsible for everything so that the radical can’t be responsible for anything.

Here, I’ll let the late and unlamented John Maguire, formerly of ISIS, say it in his own words:  Watch as the Arab leaders, munafiqeen [hypocrites] and moderates condemn the killing of the American journalist … yet are too spineless to speak about the thousands of Muslims killed by American aggression.”

Now, of course this is perverse. But the radicals only do it because it works. They shame us into accepting their warped premise.

See, the Media Party feels guilty about what’s happening to the planet. So they give Liz May and her wacky Press Gallery speech and her goals for reduced fertility a pass.

For supposedly clean Greens, they sure know how to play dirty.

Just another booger eating cult group same as despot liberal cult/commie nap cult/racist PC cult radical Islam death cult, civil society will only survive when we realize it was the concept of of the Ten Commandments are re embraced. Sadly it is down to the individual to battle this degenerate self distructive society we have through neglect allowed to survive, shun the creeps.

Trying to keep this short is going to be difficult and I’m not supporting these guys actions, but should not the employer first had asked the individual to apologize for his actions. Instead of firing via tweeter? I would question this action because it sets a challenge. I am at the rink I hollar at the referee a few profane words, someone challenges me and I give them a few choice words, and maybe the parents around just lower their heads and by doing so condone my actions. If it was taped and goes viral. Will i lose my job? I say this because this has happened many times and you can see the same bullying and intimation, yet how many companies have outright fired their employee for such action? If this moron publicly apologizes to the reporter it goes a long way, but his employer actions opens to be sued for wrongful dismissal?? This reminds me of lynch mob mentality.

Analyze the crap out of them all you want, but Progs remain as they began, as genocidal Marxists. http://www.economist.com/node/179963 Deny it all you want, but depravity is a CHOICE, as they like to squeal. It’s that simple.

Elizabeth May,

Your recent comments about Omar Khadr are disgusting. Your behavior is unforgivable and your excuses of a “failed comedy routine” are not much better because there is nothing funny about this situation. I served Canada in Afghanistan and I can tell you this individual could have easy killed one of our soldiers over there. Do you understand why? It’s because he was an enemy combatant. Do you have any clue the suffering people endure from war? The Speer family has lost everything and you want to crack jokes about convicted killers of dead servicemen and have a toast to the terrorist that killed him? Well, I usually avoid using vulgarities when I’m corresponding with politicians, but in this particular case it seems more than fitting since you crossed that boundary yourself. Therefore, I sincerely wish to say that you are a fucking disgrace to our country and I hope you find yourself living on the dole again after the election.

It’s a straight line from Malthus to Darwin to the Progressive Movement to modern Environmentalism, all based on the false and preposterous notion that mankind will destroy Earth if we don’t check and cull the human species. It’s why they promote the killing of the most innocent (abortion), but oppose the killing of the most guilty (murderers). Read Dr. Robert Zubrin’s “Merchants of Despair”: http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/1594034761/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=15121&creative=390961&creativeASIN=1594034761&linkCode=as2&tag=sportspocom0a-20

I found this part to be particularly interesting: “The conspiracy must be massive and all-powerful, because it has to be responsible for everything. And it has to be responsible for everything so that the radical can’t be responsible for anything.” I count some conspiracy theorists among my friends. You know what I mean: “moon landing was a hoax” “CIA responsible for 9/11” and the lists goes on. We talk about other stuff, like sports, science, or movies, etc, and don’t get into the crazy stuff. Works for me.

May will remain a part of the lunatic fringe! She is quite a piece of work, and I would be embarrassed to ever be stupid enough to vote for this loose canon.
