Former NHL player and Green Party Candidate Georges Laraque says Penguins visiting the White House is 'embarrassing'

StaffRebel Columnist

Former NHL tough guy Georges Laraque took issue with the Stanley Cup-winning Pittsburgh Penguins deciding to visit the White House.

“I know hockey’s more conservative than other sports, but this time it’s just wrong,” the one-time Green Party candidate said of the Penguins' decision. “I’m surprised the NHL didn’t make a stand.”

“To me, it’s an embarrassment that they’re going,” he added. “When they go there, it’s not going to look good.”

Laraque, who never won a Stanley Cup and had a chance to visit the White House, added, “this is the last place the Stanley Cup should be.”

The ultra left-wing attacks on Trump have come from other Greens too. On Sunday, Green Party Leader Elizabeth May actually retweeted a comment that claimed Trump is “Hitler 2.0” and she was only following him to track “his reckless proclamations”.

He’s just another useless twat who believes that what he says is really, really important.
Shame?
I’m ashamed that he’s on the same planet as I am.

Some commentators in the main-stream media have said that Penguins showing up at the White House shows the low regard Americans have for hockey. It is a huge story in Canada (imagine Sidney Crosby cozing up to the U.S. Pressident!?) but it the States it is a “yawn”.

It is something like the inauguration of Donald Trump when one major entertainer after another back out of performing. The group who finally did play in front of the crowd of hundreds has been forgotten.

The United States may not have much respect for hockey, but maybe Sidney will do something to gain a big of respect.

I think old George must have taken too many punches in his head or not enough !

Well May has already proved herself to be a useless drunk and a Globalist…
As for George, maybe he should go back to whatever planet he escaped from…and he’s one to talk about being ‘embarrassing’.
It’s amazing how polarized everyone has become, and to what extent. This has to be driven by all the Globalists shoehorned into in place everywhere recently.
I wish there was someone else to represent me in Parliament other than the Loyal Opposition in Absentia!

George who?

Peter Merrifield, go and verify it for yourself.

This never shows the actual Tweet where she apparently calls Trump a “Hitler” so I’ll assume it’s not real.

What these idiots (athletes, celebrities & MSM) don’t seem to understand is that Trump was elected! If Trump was elected, that means that a whole lot of people voted for him. If a whole lot of people voted for him, obviously they WANTED him to be President. Many of those people who wanted him to be President are sports fans, and they would consider it an honor for their winning sports team to be invited to the White House. It’s not as if Trump took the White House in a military coup. The people voted him in, and it’s the people who attend sporting events and pay the salaries of these athletes. When they make comments like this, they just alienate their fans and put their own careers in jeopardy, not to mention how much they embarrass themselves.

Sounds like this racist is full of sour grapes… You know the one where if you can’t have something you want then you don’t think anybody else should have it either.

Lizzey Mae , you should give George 40 wacks

Georges and his Green party need some exposure in the hopes of gaining some interest in their idiotic policies. So how better than to have a high profile former NHLer come out and make some irrelevant statement. This will definitely get him some points with Der Fuhrer, Elizabeth May.
The lunacy that pervades the Left seems to know no end. With the hearings for M103 likely not going well for those of us on the Right, I shudder to think what Canada is going to be like in ten years. Maybe being up here in the boondocks in Owen Sound, Ontario, will insulate me for a few more years. I think it may be time to price a wall for my property!

I really have no recollection of who Laroque is, so that is how much he has influenced my hockey memory. Hence, I doubt he will influence political memory past his ten minutes.

But from the header picture, I see he is one of those transgender types; so a good fit for the greens.

The media keeps trying to turn this into a free speech issue. It isn’t. But if I as an employee started pushing politics or religion at work and it was bothering people and damaging the product or offending customers my boss would have every right to say knock it off or I’m canning you. It’s not free speech when you are being paid to do a job. If you feel you have a legitimate concern then take it to those involved or protest somewhere more appropriate and finally be a little more specific in your protest. Don’t say you’re protesting cops because all cops aren’t guilty. Allot of these “cops” can and do put their lives on the line for all of us and don’t deserve to be accused of crimes against the black community. Like I said be specific and address those you feel are responsible for specific situations.

You know what’s more embarrassing & disgusting? It’s the presence of disdainful, contemptuous, bigoted people like Georges Laraque & Elizabeth May in the western society.

George: Do you even have a clue how ignorant, intolerant, undemocratic, and just plain stupid you sound?
commented 2017-09-26 13:27:13 -0400
Eh, you snowflake NFLer – it’s way more embarrassing watching you shoe-sized IQ fools throw away your careers! …but then again you are saving a lot of Americans many $$$
Good-bye & good riddens! – go cry your empty hearts out on treasonous Obumer’s shoulder – I’m sure he knows where the bearshit is in the bush!

As a long time die hard Oiler fan, George, shut your fucking ignorant mouth. Why don’t you direct your ignorance toward Bill, Hillary and the Clinton Foundation who screwed Haiti and became rich at the expense of your people? Have a talk with Obama…he is the prick who set up the immigration mess we have with the welfare migrants from Haiti now. I spent a lot of money and emotion watching you play, I see it was in vain. SHUT UP AND FUCK OFF.

As for Dizzy Lizzy May, since she has lost her drinking buddy McCallum she has become more senile. Just inject her full of moonshine, prop her up in the corner of the House, and tape a used Kotex across her yap.
