Conservatives must ignore Left’s calls to “compromise”

Tiffany GabbayArchive

Having lost at the ballot box, Democrats have been forced to switch their tactics. Notice that the left is now calling on conservatives to "compromise" and "go high." These pleas to be reasonable appeal to conservative temperaments, but here's why we need to resist them:

Make them say “oil saved the whales” 100 times in public. Then we talk.

Compromise is surrender by another name. Recipe for 1/2 solutions.

You sure do have a lot of Guardians — Tiff. Thanks . It was fun.

@anonymous….Trey Gaudey has been assigned the lead on the investigation into the allegations of Russian tampering in the election.

I don’t know if you are familiar with Trey Gaudey, but if you want to feel your heart be uplifted with a surge of pure AWE…watch this man in action on YOUTUBE. This is what it would have been like to hear Daniel Webster speak…perhaps even better .

In the course of this investigation the Wikileaks treasure trove of Clinton, Weiner, Abedin, and Podesta e-mails will get thouroughly examined for their impact on the defeat of Hillary….and she will end up wishing she went to jail.

This is going to be the biggest feeding frenzy for the non MSM media ever…we have much to look forward to.

Trudeau is compromising on the pipe lines. You have to give him that.

As for Trump, he needs to lock her up.

Art Vandelay—-Excellent post on Harper’s weaker moments. Another serious mistakes was spending a Billion of our dollars bombing Libya and helping Hillary kill Gaddafi, making way for terrorists to take over. He is partly responsible for the N. African invasion of Europe. I even e-mailed him explaining what would happen. ( I am not vain enough to think he would ever see it. )

Dave T—Why do you say we have the whip now: we are getting whipped by Trudeau. We are losing our freedom of speech in not being able to criticize the death cult.

First of we are not talking about “liberals” here we are talking about a dogmatic Cultural Marxist clique entrenched in Academia, MSM and globalist NGOs – they are a small minority of Canadians and probably represent less than 14% of the electorate – they have agendas detrimental to most Canadians, our freedoms, prosperity and laissez faire character – so, in a word Fxxk ’em – they will never be your friend, they hate you for being you and they will never be satisfied until Canada is a broken 3rd world backwater subject of a communist world authority.

The vast majority of Canadians , no matter how they identify politically just want to live relatively comfortable and secure with enough freedom and economic power to ensure their children enjoy the same level of security or do better.

Liberal political parties are running policies designed to enrich a small political crony elite at the expense of everyone else’s economic security and cultural well being. Socially they are fractious and polarizing, pitting one social group against another all the time stealing wealth and freedoms from the populace.

All it takes to defeat this is tell the truth about it and do not back down – then offer proof and popular alternatives – it isn’t hard to offer a better alternative than debt slavery servitude to foreign globalists.

@art VANDELAY….I don’t know if you have taken the trouble to officially join the conservative party and have a vote on the leadership or not, but I have and I have this advice for anyone running.

ANY FORM OF “LET THEM EAT CAKE” IS NOT AN ELECTION WINNING PLATFORM

Do not announce that you are going to lay off thousands of public servants. It doesn’t matter how much you hate big government, public servants do not write policy they only process policy…it’s a dirty thankless job but somebody has to AND IS GOING TO do it. Downsizing staff does not reduce regulation load . They and their friends and families will vote against you and DEFEAT you. There was no need of another term of Winnie the Witch over THAT stupidity.

Do not enact LOCK HIM UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY/HANG EM HIGH criminal code people do not want a police state.

Do not pull away the hope of finally arriving at pension age from people who have been looking forward to it.

Don’t be in such a hurry to balance a budget that you crush people to get there.

Don’t crap on the maritimes….they have put a moritorium on fracking because GASLAND threw one humdinger scare into them….match the efforts of those propagandists to alleviate that fear.

AND TAKE THE SAME ATTITUDE TOWARD PRESS POLITICAL CORRECTORS AS TRUMP DID AND YOU WILL GET MORE RESPECT AND CREDIBILITY.

Finally…drop that stupid obsession with the marijuana prohibition…alcohol is not good for your brain either but we seem to be OK with that.

And stop being afraid of offending feminists….feminism does not win elections either.

I think one of the reasons why there was such an outpouring of support for Trump and his politically incorrect ways of saying it like it is and not holding back is.
I have always said you can legislate the mouth but you cannot legislate the mind, and i think people have had to hide their real feeling and were too afraid to say what they thought, too much political correctness, then trump comes along and says what they all had locked in their mind but could not say.
He became, and is their hero, i realize this is just one of many reasons , now the little twit PM wants to muzzle us at his own peril

Art Vandelay-spot on. Tiffany this goes beyond any tit for tat. Liberals need a serious tough love reality check.

Any time anyone thinks of trying to be “reasonable” or "compromise with the Left, they need to remember this quote:

“It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop… ever, until you are dead!”

We have the whip hand now – it’s time to use it without mercy until every miserable little snowflake runs cowering to the “safe spaces” in their mothers’ basement and stays there, forever.

NO BARGAINS! NO PEACE! CRUSH THEM!

Canada’s problem is Justin Trudeau who holds the position of Prime Minister yet, is most definitely not a Leader.

I understand that he is going to control the freedom of speech, this to stop normal people from calling his Muslim Friends, the idiots that they are.

I have some words for you Justin Trudeau, they are not my words and unfortunately I do not know who first said them but they are very apt and you would be wise to heed them.

THOSE WHO MAKE PEACEFUL REVOLUTION IMPOSSIBLE MAKE VIOLENT REVOLUTION INEVITABLE

A Sharia propagandist is an organiser of the feminazi march against President Trump? Or is it a case of identical names?
There’s some other Linda Mansour who is a non-mohammedan right?
No? It’s the same mohammedofascist huckster?
Move to sweden ladies! All the mohammedan female-empowering luv you can handle there!
“Many many lubbings wid zoooo mudge diburzidy! Diburzidy iz a ztrent, nod a vignez! Lizzen to Juzdin Puto! Khullerpul beebles! allahuaghbar!”

After Obama, Merkel, Cameron, Hollande and Justin, the West finally has a LEADER! Is he the leader we want? Perhaps not. But, after abandoning all our respective interests in the name of kowtowing to islam and cultural marxism, he’s the leader we DESERVE!

Harper tried to compromise. He didn’t privatize the CBC or even eliminate it’s funding, he ran big deficits for most of his run, didn’t touch the civil service, didn’t touch human rights tribunals, supported virtually all of Obama’s overseas military adventures, brought in gay marriage, did nothing on abortion and didn’t condemn radical Islamic terrorism. All it won him were skits on the CBC calling him Hitler and a complete demonization by the hugely biased Canadian press during the last election. Trudeau repealed pretty much every major thing Harper did, regardless of merit, from immigration to crime and justice to spending, to bombing ISIS, purely for partisan political reasons, with no apologies. Trying to go “lefty light” is what has allowed the most corrupt, useless government in Ontario (if not Canadian) history to stay in power for so long.
