Some thoughts on the NDP convention

Mitch WolfeRebel Blogger
 

Two elections ago, leader Jack Layton moved the NDP to the centre and it became the Official Opposition in Ottawa.  Layton was ably assisted by Thomas Mulcair, who worked very hard in securing the election of many NDP candidates from Quebec.

Jack had hopes that his NDP would become fiscally responsible enough to be entrusted with running the country and the Canadian economy.

Today poor Jack must be turning over in his grave.

At the NDP convention in Edmonton last weekend, Anglophone crazies led by "Al Jazeera" Avi Lewis, "Calamity" Naomi Klein and BC wing nut Libby Davies, have put the boots not only to Quebecker Tom Mulcair but to the party's whole Francophone contingent.

This move will be viewed by Quebecers of all political stripes as anti-French and anti-Quebec.

As well, the federal NDP's crazy support of the LEAP Manifesto will doom the Alberta NDP of Rachel Notley.

Notley promised voters that if the Alberta government brought in carbon taxes, and the Alberta oil and industry made sacrifices regarding climate change, those gestures would grant the province social license to expand its oil industry and transport that oil by pipelines.

Clearly, that was all bs. The anti-oil interests want to "keep the oil in the ground." As a result, the NDP is finished as a government and as a party in Alberta, because it can not be the anti-oil NDP and an Alberta government that supports oil and gas at the same time.

These lefty loonies have just LEAPED the NDP to its political death.

It is no longer a party. It is a personality cult, "Al Jazeera" Avi’s party.

I do feel sorry for some of my honorable NDP friends who were big Mulcair supporters and who made every effort to keep the party on track and not let it go down the slippery slope of anti-Israel, pro-BDS, anti-Semitic crap.

But it appears the NDP youth wing supports the BDS movement, unlike the Liberals and the Tories. Anti-Israel zombies will continue to wreak havoc on the NDP.

I predict Tom Mulcair will quit the NDP, as Bob Rae did a few years ago and return to the Liberals, his former party. And Mulcair will take many NDP supporters with him. Leaving the Liberals was his first mistake.

Like Bob Rae (who is Jewish), Mulcair has a Jewish wife.  There is no way that the Mulcairs will remain in an NDP that supports the hateful, anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish BDS movement.

I predict that in the next election, the federal NDP will lose its official party status after being shut out in Quebec, most parts of Ontario, the Prairies and further west.

I also predict that in the next Alberta provincial election, Notley and her misguided band of provincial Dippers will
be sent packing by the hard-working people of the province.

In a family business, the third generation usually screws up and takes the company down the tubes. How ironic that Avi Lewis will do the same thing to the very same party that his grandfather David ran so ably, and that he and his useful idiot partner, Naomi Klein, will also personally destroy the first and last NDP government in Alberta.

“Notley promised voters that if the Alberta government brought in carbon taxes, and the Alberta oil and industry made sacrifices regarding climate change, those gestures would grant the province social license to expand its oil industry and transport that oil by pipelines.”

So because Ms. Notley made a rhetorical speech at the Federal convention nominally supporting the oil industry and pipelines, we are supposed to think she is in favour of them? These were just cheap words. She and her invisible energy minister have had 10.5 months where they could have taken action to prove this support. Instead, the energy minister hid under a bed; and the Notley regime acted to destroy the economy. On top of it, her boss is Brian Topp, who spoke along the terms of the Great Leap Backward when he came second to Mulcair. Sorry Ms. Notley, your speech was just coal smoke in the wind and I don’t believe you for a nanosecond.

@ Jay Kelly – "His “thoughts” are really a string of name-calling of people he dislikes. “Idiot”, “crazies”, “Al Jazeera”, “Calamity”, “wing nut”, “anti-Israel zombies”, are the best terms Wolfe can come up with to express his “thoughts” but do not constitute a blog about the NDP convention. "

But Jay, they are idiots, crazies, calamity in action, wingnuts, and anti-Israel zombies.

Do you want Mitch to lie … like you do?

I would be sorry to see the NDP go by way of the dinosaur.

Why?

They work well to split the left vote. That’s the only reason.

You know, Mitch, I honestly think that most of them cannot perceive the contradiction, especially the more radical ones.

I think she is doomed next election anyway, but every bit helps!! The more dissatisfaction from Albertans we can heap upon her the better. I cannot see too many people in my province supporting the LEAP manifesto. That’s a whole lot of crazy!

Mitch Wolfe gives “some thoughts on the NDP convention” and in doing so he demonstrates why the Rebel can not be taken seriously as a news source or as a source of journalistic opinion.

Wolfe is identified as a “blogger” which is fair enough, but his style is that of a personal blather rather than something that might inform a wider readership.

His “thoughts” are really a string of name-calling of people he dislikes. “Idiot”, “crazies”, “Al Jazeera”, “Calamity”, “wing nut”, “anti-Israel zombies”, are the best terms Wolfe can come up with to express his “thoughts” but do not constitute a blog about the NDP convention.

The Rebel will have to do some serious pruning and editing before it is taken as even a mediocre media source.
