"Jean Chretien is gross" -- but his fawning Media Party "fan-boys" are worse

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Jean Chretien has been brought back, like an undead zombie, to campaign with Justin Trudeau.

The Media Party love to hear from Chretien, for the same reason they like to go to concerts by aging bands from the sixties and seventies: to relive the feeling of being young again.

But more importantly, it reminds them of a time when Liberals ran Canada, before the party was reduced to a small rump of three dozen MPs.

I won’t go through, point by point, to prove that Canada is better now — lower unemployment, higher middle class real incomes.

Under Chretien, millions of dollars were embezzled by Liberal activists. Compare that to the worst scandal in all the Harper years — a chief of staff using his own private money to pay back a senator’s expense account.

I mean, do you remember when Chretien blamed America’s “arrogance” for causing 9/11?

Since his Media Party fan-boys won't do it, I want to ask questions like:

Who is paying Chretien these days?

Do they care that he rents himself out by the hour to companies who do business in dictatorships?

The Media Party is too busy hanging on his every word and cheering his Canada-bashing to ask those questions.

I already told you that you can’t ask questions to people or things that don’t exist.

So are we going to meet up or have you pussied out like a little bitch – proving YOU have no balls?

Liza Rosie,
I love your commentary. Today, We have learned that a metro-sexual can PMS. Make a note to ignore Jimmy in the middle of the month.
Jimmy, go fuck yourself and ask God why he deprived you of balls

Chretien ran the most corrupt political regime this nation has ever suffered under. I question Trudeau’s person judgement in getting his endorsement – like having Richard Nixon endorse you
commented 2015-09-18 09:35:30 -0400
Cretin is a slimy hypocrite, good person to link yourself with Justin.
It makes my blood boil to hear Cretin bad mouth Canada and claim his love for his country.

Jimmy doesn’t call people stupid fuck fucking stupid anymore. He does sound slightly modified.

If the economy is the most important subject in the election. And the polls show it is. One would think that it would be the most idiotic move to bring Chretien into the picture. Justin wants to go to the bank and borrow a ton of money and have the taxpayers guarantee the loan. I personally believe there are some merits to the government taking advantage of the low interest rates. But A Liberal government to execute a major spending program. I don’t think so. Folks, there will be a lot more to complain about than the the money spent on " Canada’s Action Plan" advertising. A lot more. Chretien’s crooked face being splashed on TV should be a perfect reminder of this to Canadians. I repeat “Crooked”
As Canada’s notional broadcaster. It should be the duty of the CBC to point out important facts about the economy under Chretien. Facts such as in 1999, in the middle of his term. Canada had the highest corporate tax rate in the G20. Today it is the lowest.
We all know that if the left wing media reported objectively on the economy. Harper’s polling numbers would double. But instead all we hear is, above all people, Chretien saying " Harper is irresponsible" or “I want my Canada back”. or “I gave my life to Canada”. Spare me.
commented 2015-09-17 23:19:30 -0400

You really are paranoid and believe in really stupid conspiracy theories. I had to a point to make about Canada and freedom, so I made it. I have actually used that list before in other debates.

But feel free to think that I am with some “organization”. That’s much more entertaining to me.
commented 2015-09-17 23:12:42 -0400
Take note folks – not a chance in hell that’s the regular “Jimmy” talking!! Confirming my suspicions he’s with TIDES or some other organization and someone else at the office has taken over his persona!

Fraser Institute?? Not a chance in hell the REAL Jimmy actually went to that site. Am I supposed to believe this is the same person that’s shown himself over several months to be as dumb as a stick??? Not a chance!!!
commented 2015-09-17 21:10:33 -0400

You sound like you are full of hate.

How about you answer Terry’s question:

Just for clarity, Keith, would that would include Muslim members of parliament, Muslim candidates, current senators, policemen, mayors, scientists, university professors, and folks who have lived here their entire lives, voted, paid taxes, and contributed to our country?
commented 2015-09-17 21:03:12 -0400

Thank you for conceding the point about freedoms and liberties. One mans freedom CAN be another’s oppression.

I realize that conservatives like to make fun of Trudeau per their just not ready ad and the comment about making pot legal, but one may think that in a country that is supposed to be free – pot would have been made legal long ago – as it is in other countries.
commented 2015-09-17 20:14:21 -0400
Actually, Keith, you previously expressed a little more than a “wish” they’d go "back home. You advocated the exile of all Canadian citizens of the Muslim faith. Specifically, you said:

““Return all Muslims, now living in Canada, even the ones born here, back to the land of their Ancestors.”

Just for clarity, Keith, would that would include Muslim members of parliament, Muslim candidates, current senators, policemen, mayors, scientists, university professors, and folks who have lived here their entire lives, voted, paid taxes, and contributed to our country?
commented 2015-09-17 20:11:30 -0400
Definition of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. Listen up Brinkman!
commented 2015-09-17 20:10:38 -0400
JIMMY; Wrong, I do not wish all Muslims dead, I just wish they would all go home. Read the Quaran, the later verses, that supersede the originals. Maybe then you will understand. Hijrah, Jimmy, it means Jihad by Immigration. Do not be a Liberal, pull your head out of the sand.
commented 2015-09-17 20:01:36 -0400
“Why is that Ezra constantly sounds as though he’s talking to a locker room full of slightly stupid teenage girls?” Perhaps it is an attempt to be inclusive of the lefty crowd that post here……..!!
commented 2015-09-17 19:55:57 -0400
PK. Add to your list Chretien robbed the Pension Funds of Canada Post and the RCMP among others. Each had a healthy surplus in them to weather what is coming in retirements. Each then had to start their own plan. In the case of Canada Post, it is why they are struggling to meet committments for contributions and why the plan is in deficit………..!
commented 2015-09-17 17:34:44 -0400
While I don’t completely disagree with you Jimmy there are certain fundamental freedoms that are just unalienable, self evident, natural rights. But you are correct in that when you get down to the nitty gritty of it, one mans freedom can be another’s oppression.

What next? Mulcair and the media consortium digging up Layton for a weekend at bernie’s moment.

Freedom and liberty are absolutely subjective – which is why some countries have more freedom and liberty compared to Canada as the latest world ranking indicates:

As the Fraser Institute (which IS Canadian by the way) introduction of the study details:

“The cornerstones of economic freedom are (1) personal choice, (2) voluntary exchange coordinated by markets, (3) freedom to enter and compete in markets, and (4) protection of persons and their property from aggression by others. Economic freedom is present when individuals are permitted to choose for themselves and engage in voluntary transactions as long as they do not harm the person or property of others.”

The index is also based on measures of freedom of speech, freedom of religion, individual economic choice, freedom of association, freedom of assembly, violence and crimes, freedom of movement, LGBT rights and women’s rights. Other components of the Freedom Index include human trafficking, sexual violence, female genital mutilation, homicide, freedom of movement, and adoption by homosexuals.

1. Hong Kong

2. Singapore

3. New Zealand

4. Switzerland

5. Australia,

6. Canada

7. Chile

8. Estonia.

9. Mauritius

10. Ireland

12. United States

Those are 5 countries that have more freedom and liberty compared to Canada.

These rankings are not just a matter of opinion, either. It can be empirically proven that these numbers strongly correlate with important quality of life indicators. For example, as the Fraser Institute documents, places with increases in economic freedom have seen an increase in literacy rates, average income, and lifespan. In countries where economic freedom has declined, there has also been a corresponding decline in literacy rates, average income, and lifespan.

Uh, no it’s not.

You do realize that there are a ton of factors that go into why a person is liberal/progressive/Democrat and why they are conservative/Republican. It can come down to many issues that people support or even ONE issue that they support and that make it so that they cannot vote for the other party.

So having said that, I am sure that there are liberals/progressives that vote for their party even though they disagree with certain stances that the party may have. Just like there are people who think Stephen Harper isn’t conservative enough and is a soft liberal more or less, but they will vote for him regardless, because there are things that they do agree with.

Justice may be subjective but freedom and liberty are not.
commented 2015-09-17 15:18:19 -0400
Why would I not, being gay is a natural state for I forget the exact number but its around 5% of people that are born. Its no different than being born a dwarf or with a facial deformity etc.
You may not have used those terms “Islamization” but I have read comment of yours in which you support policies and such that would turn a blind eye and let it happen. Heck supporting the NDP or Libs is the same as supporting the Islamization of Canada truth be told.
commented 2015-09-17 15:01:27 -0400

Go find my posts that support ANYTHING that you have posted here. I have never once mentioned Omar Khadr or “Islamization of Canada”.

The problem for you is that freedom, liberty, and justice is completely subjective. Do you support freedom, liberty, and justice for gay people?
commented 2015-09-17 14:52:24 -0400
Jimmy Da Moron,
Lol you said “How ironic that you claim that I am brain washed – yet you make fucking insane comments like “traitors to freedom and justice” and “or better yet go live in a country you actually love like Pakistan or Saudi Arabia”.”"
I said that because it’s true and part of your neo-Marxist ideology. You have constantly made remarks about, as well as supporting a political party that perverts justice. For example supporting Omar Khadr and his family of terrorists and freedom haters that want to kill all non Sunni Muslims. You seem to love the idea of the Islamization of Canada and filling it up with more and more Muslims. You don’t seem to care about the kicking down of doors and the theft of firearms (private property) from private homes in High river. You seem to think that minorities deserve special treatment rather than equal treatment. So on and so on and so on. I could continue for ever because you have left hundreds of comments full of that crap.
I have seen you spout off some of the most outrageous things over the last few months. So when I say that you and Brinkman are traitors to freedom, liberty and justice it is because you say things that go against freedom, liberty, and justice. If you dislike that label then don’t talk out of your ass about things that will limit my liberty and freedom. Pretty simple.
“better yet go live in a country you actually love like Pakistan or Saudi Arabia” I said that because you seem to want to let Canada turn into a sharia shit hole as is happening in many countries across the world. I like my culture here in Canada and I don’t want my freedom of speech limited, I don’t want to show up at my local pool and have to wait 2 hours to swim because its women only for the next 2 hours because we have decided to appease Muslim women and there ridiculous beliefs, same with my local gym. And so on and so on. I want to live in a free country with the liberties I was born with. If you don’t, then go live in Pakistan with your precious Muslims that need all there special treatment and rules rather than preaching appeasement and ruining my homeland.
I said those things because you have consistently demonstrated that you are a traitor to freedom, liberty, and justice and you also seem to think that other cultures are some how better than ours and we need to change our culture to appease the Muslim invasion. Do you never read what you are writing or something?
commented 2015-09-17 14:36:54 -0400
Ah, Keith. I’m glad you’re here. You mentioned earlier your Final Solution to the Muslim Problem:
““Return all Muslims, now living in Canada, even the ones born here, back to the land of their Ancestors.”
Just for clarity, Keith, would that would include Muslim members of parliament, Muslim candidates, current senators, policemen, mayors, scientists, university professors, and folks who have lived here their entire lives, voted, paid taxes, and contributed to our country?
I’d just like to be really, REALLY clear that’s what you’re actually calling for here, Keith.
Is that correct?
commented 2015-09-17 14:29:09 -0400

I claimed to be an artist? I never said that.

I am all over the Niqab thread. I think what you mean is – I am not hating on Muslims and wish for their death like you do.
commented 2015-09-17 14:23:37 -0400
Two people are responsible for most of the comments on these pages, namely, Jimmy Da Slick and Brinkmanshit. Did anyone notice how they stay away from comments on Islam and Muslims? This is because they are both Left Wing Cowards.
Jimmy claims to be an Artist (Piss Artist?). Draw us a picture Jimmy and post it, so all can see. Why not. Draw ‘The Ace Of Spades’ Jimmy.
Brinkmanshit is a Youtube man, Hum, Hum. The only tube that Brinkman has, is located between his legs, this is where he espouses all the Crap, that he leaves on these pages. What a pair of Wankers.
commented 2015-09-17 14:18:01 -0400

Even though we disagree – I appreciate your comments.
commented 2015-09-17 14:16:55 -0400

You mean like how you avoided my challenges and points that I directly asked you?
commented 2015-09-17 14:03:00 -0400
I can appreciate that people have many criticisms of Harper and might cite alleged scandals or mismanaging the economy or any number of issues, but when I see writers claiming Harper is worse than Isis or in this case claiming Harper shamed Canada, and politicizing an issue of human suffering for political gain, it is below the belt. But I am not really surprised, there seems to be few things as insincere as desperate politicians who will stoop to any new depth because their sense of entitlement will not be denied.
commented 2015-09-17 14:02:49 -0400
Brian Cameron — Exactly. If Brinkman had an ideology, he’d stick to it. Da Silva has one, even if I think it’s full of excrement, but he has one and sticks by it. Brinkman is hot air spouting propaganda, nothing else. So when historical facts are brought up, he runs. Da Silva, on the other hand, will counter. I disagree strongly with Da Silva, but I have to respect that he has convictions. Brinkman has none, and therefore has no credibility or respect, much as he seems to demand it.
