The Left calls conservatives “Hitler” -- but what about NDP hero (and eugenicist) Tommy Douglas?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander
 

What would you call a politician who advocated state-sponsored sterilization for the "unfit"? Who had some pretty scary ideas about what to do with gay people?

You might call him "Hitler," but in fact, that's a sampling of the views of Tommy Douglas, the so-called "Greatest Canadian" and the hero of Canada's left.

The history of Rev. Douglas’s Beloved Denomination , which use to be called, The Baptist Union Of Western Canada, is a Fascinating story itself .It’s very similar to the story of The United Church Of Canada and the fact that it Produced and attracted socialists like Tommy Douglas is no surprise ! Even though there are a few exceptions , many Baptist Union Churches today are hardly indistinguishable from The United Church of Canada . And their Statement of Beliefs is laughable! compared to more Conservative Baptist Groups ie. No Substance ! P.S. Why do young leftists today Forget that Nazi- ism is National SOCIALISM ? My guess is that their teachers and professors are also VOID OF SUBSTANCE !

If all of the facts were presented when the greatest Canadian poll was going on, Douglas never would have won.

Douglas was a Socialist, one of the lower forms of life on this Planet. Need any more be said?

It seems to me that there is a tradition, particularly on the part of socialists, to lean upon an r/K selection model of breeding. They want to select who breeds. To do that they must extinguish (by abortion contraception, rendering large families economically nonviable) high birth rates, and then selecting who does get to breed. We see this experiment being conducted on a huge scale in china However, as we see in Europe, nature is returning with a vengeance and good old differential reproduction is rearing her mighty head to destroy the civilization that believed it could defy her laws.

Are you kidding me? First, read my post below about Douglas. And if you read the book, you’ll find that our health care system is nothing to rave about compared to others in the world.
Not the Left calling Con’s Hitler?? Yeah nice try buddy – take a hike!!! Who do you think your fooling? Or were you only out to fool yourself? Make yourself feel better about the Lefty Rednecks you run with?
commented 2016-03-19 20:45:24 -0400
Douglas gets credited with starting health care in Canada, but if you read the book Chronic Condition, about Canada’s health care system, it starts out with a history, and it seems Tommy cut and run before the job was done for his own self interest, leaving it to others to git-r-done! So the fact that he’d be into something as narcissistic as eugenics doesn’t surprise me!

Peter – good jab at Robert LOL!!
Robert, if you come here often enough, you’ll see EL criticize Conservatives when it’s called for. That said, do you apply the same standard to the rest of the media, or you have double standards like the rest of the psychotic Lefty’s out there!?!?!

Hitler = Head of Nazi Party = nazi = national socialist = liberal = Bernie Trudeau
commented 2016-03-19 20:00:27 -0400
Robert the Rebel actually does that. When have they not? Go talk to the liberal media and ask them why they lie.
commented 2016-03-19 19:59:22 -0400
The left also takes guns away and pushes for the secularization of the state just like the Nazis.
commented 2016-03-19 19:58:05 -0400
David Tremblay it is the left who is promoting hatred and using Nazi policies, maybe try some reality.

Actually the Eugenics theory was extremely popular around the world and Alberta was one of the few places to implement sterilisation of the mentally ill before Tommy Douglas even went to University. I think Tommy Douglas was possibly over rated but I also don’t think it really matters that he wrote a paper about the subject while he was in school. What does matter is that he did the exact opposite while in power by promoting taking care of our weakest members in society through our health care system which is how a society is truly measured. It is a philosophy that has spread through almost every leading modern democracy and is one of Canada’s best collective achievements and that is indeed praiseworthy. And it isn’t the “left” calling Conservatives Hitler, it is the sane rational centrists calling tea partiers (not conservatives, because there are many reasonable rational conservatives) who promote hatred and support KKK like policies Hitler.
commented 2016-03-19 18:21:21 -0400
The words Hitler and Islamophobic and homophobic are all used by leftie idiots who think it’ll scare away the competition and enforce on them self censorship that the left would have very little control of. They’ve been using it successfully but I won’t give into it. I’ll say my opinions no matter what they call me.
commented 2016-03-19 18:08:53 -0400
This is an abuse tactic – projection!
commented 2016-03-19 17:20:57 -0400
here’s another little factoid, its funny that the left calls us Nazis and KKK but yet it was the democrat party in the US that were the original founders of the KKK. not only that but NASA was created by ex Nazis after the second world war….isn’t NASA operated by left wing global warming fanatics?. the left obviously revels in their own hypocrisy.

If you don’t mind being taxed so that you are helping fund the wholesale killing of you own citizens (abortions and euthanasia) your in one camp. If you hold the premise that the gay community should be held at a higher standard than your own (ie: that the gays community has special laws protecting them) you are in one camp. If you believe that there should be no stop gaps on immigration while the unemployment rate sores across the country, your in one camp. If you believe in the climate scam , you are in one camp. Now it turns out that these 4 mentioned camps are one in the same. Myself I am not a " slave " to anyone’s ideology and it is very liberating as a matter of fact it gives me the freedom to bash all ideological beliefs or take with a grain of salt what I wish from all. It’s whatever blows you dress up or hair back, just as long as you don’t tread on me.
Tommy Douglas was a fucking nutbar that should have put in one of his own institutions.

Nathan W said, "Did conservatives of the day cry out against these ideas? No. Clearly they were OK with it. "

No Nathan. You are wrong again. The Conservatives of the day did have a problem with it. That is why they stopped the program immediately when they came into power in 1972.

Robert Caughell said, “Otherwise EL et all are being highly selective/hypocrites in who they criticize.”

But not you of course. Right Robert? You are probably the most fair and unbiased person in existence today, right Robert?
commented 2016-03-19 16:24:14 -0400
Right. And then they realized it was a bad idea. No one in that camp supports such thinking any more. It was a bad idea, maybe seemed good at first, and then we realized it was utterly antithetical to freedom.

Any more dead people with the best of intentions you want to slander today?

Did conservatives of the day cry out against these ideas? No. Clearly they were OK with it. Hypocrites.
commented 2016-03-19 15:45:17 -0400
OK, lets have an intensive analysis of ALL leader’s/politician’s statements, thoughts, deeds, etc. to be fair. Be they Left, Right, Centre, other. Lets have FULL transparency. I dare EL and the Rebel to do it. Otherwise EL et all are being highly selective/hypocrites in who they criticize.

Now, let’s see:

- Did Harper ever have anyone sterilised?
- Did George W Bush ever have anyone sterilised?
- Did Benjamin Netanyahu ever have anyone sterilised?

Can you imagine the left-wing scream if they had?

It’s time that we start adopting the left wing’s tactics, as Ezra just did, and start RIPPING into their heroes, like Tommy Douglas, for having what we might call “outmoded views”.
