WATCH: Liberal candidate says Harper sent troops into Iraq, Afghanistan -- but that's just the start of his "history lesson"

Dean SkoreykoRebel Blogger

At a candidate forum, Liberal candidate Marwan Tabbara was video-recorded saying some unbelievably stupid things:

First Tabbara states Chretien refused to send the Canadian military into Afghanistan.

Then he says that Harper, in 2006, put our troops into Iraq and Afghanistan.

And to top it all off, Tabbara interrupts the Conservative candidate to complain that Canadian jets bombed Syrian children, and contradicts her factual assertion that Chretien send Canadian troops into a desert war zone with jungle camo.

UPDATE -- Now he says he "mispoke":

Yup, wrong countries, wrong years, wrong prime ministers and called our air force war criminals – misspoke my ass.

I distinctly remember Jean Chretien standing up in front of Canada and saying among other things that we will stand “shoulder to shoulder” with our American allies (sic)!! I was very proud of that moment after the events of 9/11!!

Canada will never go down without a fight, and many underestimate true Canadians. They think because we are for the most part, a generous and fair people, that we will just bow down to evil, but they underestimate our true characters. The will to protect our country and citizens, is something that most true Canadians, will fight and die for. Those of us who love our country, and all the freedoms that we have, that were paid for by those who fought and died, so that we could be free. These lives were not lost in vain, and we have a duty to fight for what is right, not just lay down and submit to evil.

The left just don’t get it do they. Maybe the following might help them.

I just saw Ezra’s thread on Mohamed Fahmy. He called him a Canadian of convenience. HOW SO TRUE. Do you guys remember the social shit storm(thank-you Sheila Gunn Reid) that Trudeau and Mulcair bestowed upon PMSH for not doing enough for Mohamed Fahmy. Oh how unpatriotic Harper was for not looking out for Canadians abroad. And the CBC played this fiddle to the max.
If the CBC, Mulcair and Justin made such a big stink about this Canadian. THEN WHY IS HE WAVING AN EGYPTIAN FLAG? A Canadian of convenience indeed. The left just doesn’t see this

Then we get the idiot retard, Jimmy DUH Silva, who proclaims that we are a “Warrior Nation”. He is probably too stupid to see the insult to our Veterans and Troops. Keith Barnes and Bravo Zulu, you guys are true heroes and this Canadian thanks you for your services. If Mulcair’s ideology was implemented during the second world war. We would all be speaking German today. “Warrior Nation” my ass.

So why doesn’t Justin and Mulcair waive an Egyptian flag when they are campaigning? Imagine a soldier going to battle and he has Mohamed Fahmy(waiving his Egyptian flag) to his left and Jimmy Duh Silva to his right?

If this kind of left wing naivety comes into power. Cathy Rochford, Sharia Law may be inevitable in Canada. I sure hope Canada’s compassion, tolerance and generosity is not being laughed at by the people who are receiving them.

The left are Islamist collaborators

Marwan Tabbara may have tried to spin Canadian history to his advantage but karma has already caught up… Local polling in the new Kitchener South-Hesperler riding has the race between the PCs and NDP… Liberals are third…

I’m a little nervous that The Rebel is might post some hit-piece about Russia indiscriminately bombing the “moderate rebels” in Syria. If such lies show up on this website, they will be the Obama White House talking points. Be warned, you will look like fools if you cater to this “moderate rebel” crap.

Russia is doing what’s needed, Assad NEVER needed to go and neither did Gaddafi.

All the supporters of Islamic terrorism are coming back out of the closet to bemoan Russia’s treatment of their “moderate rebels”… Same orwellian term we heard in 2013 to refer to Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra, and what would eventually become “ISIS”.

The Conservatives seeking re-election would be wise to avoid publicly crying tears for their jihadi mercenaries.

BRAVO. (Wish I could talk like that) but we’re not in trouble yet. Stay tuned

It is unfortunate that in order to create the “balance” that each party needs to satisfy the ethnic diversity that the lefties and media demand, that at times there are people chosen who not only know nothing about Canada, but are prepared to create their own series of lies and deceit in order to spread these falsehoods with a superior attitude.

Born in Lebanon and educated in Guelph – "Marwan earned his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Government from the University of Guelph. "

Seems he did not learn much about truth and history.

Interesting – as he is from Lebanon – his family – and there must still be family in Lebanon – will quite possibly have benefitted in some way from Canadian troops who serve there even today as Peace Keeping UNTSO monitors as well as aid delivered by military transport.

Let us not forget those “Canadians of convenience” who were helped during one of the wars in that once Christian country that is now pretty much destroyed by islam. Remember Canada hiring cruise ships to get them out of country and then returning them to Lebanon when the hostilities were over? All at your expense.

Stating that Canadian military personnel have bombed Syrian civilians is actually quite possibly true.

It is war and civilian casualties are always a concern for the western powers.

It is unfortunate that he did not comment on the fact that while Canadian military personnel do their utmost to limit civilian casualties – the fact remains that the “opposition” does their best to MAXIMIZE those civilian casualties.

His lies will become truth to the locals – who judging from photos – also come from his part of the world – and despite his denials on (anti) social media – they will be repeated forever by his own people. Meaning that history will be denied and changed at the kitchen tables of the people who will vote for him.

A direct quote from BC Blue: “Yup, wrong countries, wrong years, wrong prime ministers and called our air force war criminals – misspoke my ass”

That says it all but trudope will merrily keep this guy – because while he is not the brightest bulb in the socket, his skin colour and cultural background help place an “x” in the box.

Just anther reason that this country is in trouble.

The Conservatives should use this ignorant little asshole for their next attack ad. Justin’s judgement is obviously lacking. This twit is definitely NOT what Canadians want.

OBTW—- I won’t be getting on bended knee to any perverts today.
commented 2015-09-30 23:32:26 -0400
It’s just like the way Mulcair starts every sentence, PM Harpers plan isn’t working, we have a better plan. Just haven’t thought of it yet.
commented 2015-09-30 23:25:29 -0400
Marwan Tabbara—— It is a good thing that you are a Liberal. Your ignorance and arrogance are both noted.
You don’t qualify to be a Conservative.
commented 2015-09-30 23:21:14 -0400
Liza Rosie, Re-" I am not so sure".
You could be right. I made my assumption on the way he looked. Like a retard. His real name should be.
Marwan DUH Tabbara.

Liza Rosie – The Liberals are very good at starting “rumours” but then they never clear them up, when proven wrong. They are very crafty and deceptive, and I don’t believe a thing they say!
commented 2015-09-30 20:32:13 -0400
When the facts and the truth no longer matter what comes next? I think the answer is very frightening.
commented 2015-09-30 18:14:53 -0400
If I picked one hundred Canadians at random, regardless of political affiliation, how many do you think would realize that this putz had “mis-spoken”?
I would wager a bet that there are even press scribes who would dutifully scribble down his nonsense and report it as fact…just because they didn’t know better. That’s the problem. The mediocrity is the message.
commented 2015-09-30 17:56:49 -0400
Where are our two l’il trolls, J d S and R (D) B, on this story? I was looking forward to a good laugh as they did verbal pretzels proving this Islamist propaganda of Tabbara to be correct.
commented 2015-09-30 17:33:21 -0400
This guy obviously took lessons from the Obama school of “blame Bush for everything wrong” and applied it to Harper.
commented 2015-09-30 17:16:49 -0400
First, what are they teaching for history in today’s society? How can you not know your own history when you are young enough to have lived through it, head shaker or what.
Second, do people actually live under rocks?
Third, there should be a test of some sorts for any aspiring politician to show that you know our country’s past well enough to guide us into the future.
Tabbara is the typical face of socialism, believe in their own version of facts and spew their ignorance to the masses, but instead of looking intelligent they come across as an ignorant fool.

…that he doesn’t realize he is insulting our men and women who served.
commented 2015-09-30 16:51:14 -0400
I am not so sure Alex.
Serge I couldn’ look. I made the mistake of looking at some stills on youtube of some of the evil, shots taken seconds before the deed, no blood at all. I came across one of this ISIS murderer, with his foot on the body of a screaming infant, and a large sword in his hand, arm raised in a swing seconds before the deed. I have never been able to get it out of my mind. It is burnt there forever. I don’t know how Bravo and others who have seen some of this stuff first hand can tolerate some of these stupid apologists and enablers.
commented 2015-09-30 16:22:39 -0400
This idiot doesn’t even realize he is insulting our men and women in uniform. Past and present. Our veterans and our troops are the greatest heroes of Canada. How do we even entertain the possibility of an asshole like this sitting in our house of commons.
commented 2015-09-30 16:01:41 -0400
Lisa R….you took the words out of my mouth. Was he given those talking points to score with the clueless…because if not, he needs to brush up on his history. Like Justy & his other liberal cronies they have their heads stuck in the sand & live in a cave.
Serge……I dared to look at the link & no words can adequately describe the mindset of these savages. Maybe you can send that link to Tabbara.
commented 2015-09-30 14:39:17 -0400
If you really want to know about our troops go right to the horse’s mouth, “Veterans for the Conservative Party” now have a Facebook page set up and all are welcome.

It’s a Lebanese tradition to state fairytales along sectarian lines….
commented 2015-09-30 14:01:39 -0400
I have nothing but distain for those who insult our armed forces. The selective ignorance of those on the left illustrate how little they care about Canada and the safety of her citizens.
commented 2015-09-30 13:34:44 -0400
Liberal candidate Marwan Tabbara is just another stupid communist fuck hired by troodo to peddle bullshit.

commented 2015-09-30 13:30:07 -0400
He seems like he is not the sharpest tool in the shed, just another idiot explosion same as the one on the west coast, typical liberal, lie make stuff up then claim you mis spoke ya sure you did.
commented 2015-09-30 12:58:50 -0400
I’ll bet this guy prays for the defeat of Canadian Armed Forces every Friday
commented 2015-09-30 12:18:46 -0400
He doesn’t care, he puts this stuff out there, then its out there floating around for all the low info sheeple to vacuum in. It doesn’t matter that he said he misspoke, no one will register that part and he knows it. Our government is going to be infested before we know it. We’re not paying attention.

Ya, wouldn’t Islam just love for Canada to be just an observer state, so they could keep us out of the game, infiltrate, assimilate and use us.

Good for Marian Gayne for attempting to set the record straight. Notice her attempt was thwarted by cries of," so its okay to murder Syrian children". In true apologist form.
This is the new face of Canadian government. It does not reflect Canadian values. What’s wrong with this picture?
Is Tabbara’s first allegiance to Canada? I have my doubts.
commented 2015-09-30 12:13:31 -0400
I really resented the comment on " Tabbara interrupts the Conservative candidate to complain that Canadian jets bombed Syrian children"
Please take note this is an extremely graphic picture of a you Christian girl that was beheaded by ISIS .
It is so graphic that I will not the photo but a link instead of the photo itself. Be Warned
This is the reason that Canada and the whole world should be fighting these ISIS savages.
