BLM vs. Niki Ashton: Leftist meltdown over “appropriated” Beyonce lyrics

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator Sheila Gunn Reid
 

I have to be honest. It brings me great joy to see the Frankenstein monster of p.c. culture consume the mad scientists that created it. 

The monster food this time is Federal NDP leadership candidate, Niki Ashton. She describes herself as an intersectional feminist, and an advocate of social justice.

But all that wasn't enough to spare her.

Ashton got herself in some hot water with the far left wing race pimps from Black Lives Matter Vancouver.

She used a Beyonce lyric in a tweet and on Facebook:

“Like Beyonce says, to the left. It’s time for an unapologetic left turn for the NDP, for social, racial, enviro and economic justice”

Not all that clever, but whatever. Who cares?

Well, BLM Vancouver cared.

They immediately tweeted at Ashton:

“Appropriating Black culture is not intersectional feminism. Please delete your "to the left" FB post & address the issue"

Ashton accepted her scolding, apologized for her sin of cultural appropriation for using a directional descriptor that some black singer used one time in a song.

Can you even imagine what it would be like to have Nikki Ashton be prime minister?

She's change the names of all the directions on the maps in Canada because Kanye West is black.

I guess the good news is the progressive left is silencing themselves, and conservatives like me are just sitting back and enjoying the show.

“These foamy mouthed hysterics and radicals don’t want “justice” they just want a new form of despotism that THEY are in charge of. "

You hit the nail on the head, Bill. Just like the muslims, they are all in favour of democracy as long as it serves their purposes. But as soon as it doesn’t they are quick to abandon any love for it and to bare their fascist fangs.

As they used to say, “Hoist by her own petard”. Love it.

I have often felt some of the same sentiments expressed by some of the commenters when it comes to anarchists who when out burning and pillaging had pause when they showed up at the front gate of their own shelter. It will be news when these ass hats aren’t offended at something and they have turned the art of discontent ( a nickname I used for a coworker named Arthur who would stomp his foot waiting for me to arrive so he could unload) into a lucrative business which also feeds their sense of self impotence.

“Plagiarized from another website comments section:

There is only one reason for the liberal/progressive/democrat/ behavior:

a long-term mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation.

It truly is delightful every time I see a left winger taken down by one of their own…or their own policies, and this inevitably happens all the time. I have watched other exactly similar situations where those who LOVE their unions, for example, fall to the pc garbage from their policies that destroy them and keep them in bondage while those who are lawbreakers among them USE those policies to crush their honest opponents…when will they learn that the left is self-destructive by nature, and that the only reason their policies work is that some people believe in their inane ideas without giving them the thought that would open their eyes to the self-immolation inherent in socialism. The left is comprised of vicious totalitarians and mindless useful idiots. It will ever be so. It only survives when the right bails them out and it is the duty of conscientious conservatives to ensure this never happens again. Unless you are the ruthless totalitarian, it might be a good idea to bail out of socialism before it bites you in the SS.

Having Niki Ashton as PM is no worse than have our current feminist PM. Neither are qualified to be PM. Both are dangerously stupid.

I miss Harper. He was a true and mature PM and statesman.

Gotta love it. Even the N.D.P. isn,t far enough left for these racist whack jobs. The more these dipshits talk the better the chance of getting rid of potato head jr and his muslam hordes.

PC implosion? What a Delightful Ending.

I had fun watching the NDP Leadership debate last week. The Federal NDP may be eradicated in the 2019 election. They are consistent in saying that everyone is entitled to so many things; however they never explain who is going to pay for everything like Guaranteed Income.

Shouldn’t someone be giving a talking-to to Beyoncé herself for appropriating the blonde locks of white women? Hey, what’s good for the goose….
commented 2017-03-16 23:12:34 -0400
Black Lives Matter Vancouver, what a joke. They should be run out of the country. Another excuse for foreign funded interference from the extreme totalitarian left. They should be ridiculed and mocked at every turn. Bloody hypocrite loser race baiters.

Why BLM Van, dissin sister Niki , she jus “repping for the girls who taking over the world”

These foamy mouthed hysterics and radicals don’t want “justice” they just want a new form of despotism that THEY are in charge of.

If the courts don’t start taming this obvious seditious racist hate messaging by the left, we will be forced into a civil conflict, and I thinking maybe this is the way it has to be to get things back in equilibrium – we can’t continue allowing societies most dissolute fringe to dominate public narrative and policy making.

So we will have a motion along the lines of the islamofacist M103 specifying we cannot use the term “to the left”, because it is blackophobic. Instead the golf pro will have to correct a hook to the watch hand. Drivers will merge to the watch hand. Baseball will have a fielder that is to the centre fielder’s watch hand. Heck, the whole regressive movement can no longer move society to the left, so maybe the Bacon Lettuce Mayo has a good point.

I posted this on the other story about this issue. I might as well pot it here again:

“Jobs are scarce, common sense is scarce, but we sure have an abundant supply of idiots. I wonder if there’s a global market for them…. perhaps some less progressive country with who we could trade our proliferation of idiots for some locally manufactured goods. That would be nice.”

She’s no “leader” if she is going to cave in like an igloo in a chinook at the first sign of criticism, no matter how discreditible the source. Looks like JT is not the only one who’s “just not ready.”

What a spineless waste of space.
Did she nominate those who chastised her for a race relations award like the morons in Toronto did?

YUP! it is gratifying to see the left lose it’s shit! … well – insane peoples do not communicate well with insane people!! lmfao!
It’s coming – the time we are all hoping for – the Left swallowing itself in it’s own stupidity. – not unlike Obumer working OT on defying President Trump – DAMN it will look great when Obumer is on the waterboard in Gitmo! Please let me hold the pail!

All one has to do is to look at history. What has the Left ever done that has improved the lives of people. The USSR is a good example of Leftism.

As for SJW, they should all be subjected to mental assessment tests. They are all a brick short of a load.

I think she was just looking for attention!

Hmmmm…Niki Ashton…just another progressive idiot!
commented 2017-03-16 18:40:18 -0400
Left wing progressives sure love bending over for the fists of others in their wazoo.
commented 2017-03-16 18:40:07 -0400
Sheila you asked if one could imagine Ashton being our PM. You mean like our current feminist PM?
commented 2017-03-16 18:37:34 -0400
Thanks Sheila,
I had a great laugh at the absurdity of it all!
