Gerald Butts' Easter tweet reflects "the true spirit of the Liberal Party"

Rebel Staff

Why did Justin Trudeau's senior adviser, Gerald Butts, send out a snarky tweet on Easter Sunday?

He hinted that some of those quoting the Bible on Twitter that day were being hypocritical.

Would he have sent a similar negative message during Ramadan or another non-Christian religious holiday?

Of course not.

Without realizing it, Butts' comment reveals the true spirit of the Liberal Party, one that seems to respect certain religions more than others.

What do you think?

Was that message appropriate for Easter Sunday? Tell us in the comments!

Ok better line. Apparently the Devil can quote Shakespeare to.
commented 2015-04-08 13:02:00 -0400
I’d rather hear the Devil quote the Bible than hear Gerald Butts quoting Shakespeare. Better the devil we know.

I watched Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Jesus” on Easter Sunday. An excellent story. Next year I hope to see “Killing Butts”…hmmm where was I going with this? Yes yes yes yes…the story of an idiot and his mentor trying to discover the source of the Egg…that they both laid. Butts?

I have a feeling that Butts and the devil have a lot in common.

Yet another “popcorn and beer” remark. When will Canadians appreciate disdain this party has for them.

Would be nice to see some ADULTS representing the Lieberals at least….

If he wants to hate Christians, he’s allowed. Our country and our Charter give him that freedom. Conversely, his comments will be remembered and he will answer for them — both at the polling booth, AND on Judgement Day. The rest of us don’t really have to say a word, unless we want to show him the error of his ways (assuming, of course, that he even WANTS to see what he’s shown… and if not, then there’s no changing it).

The Boy Blunder has a brain mouth connection problem coupled wit a low intellect. Add a guy like Butts to that scenario where he has major influence and you have a pending disaster. If I was a Liberal I would be worried about the leaders performance: even the left biased media is starting to pick up on this situation! As for the tweet, I would expect nothing else from an individual who has convinced himself that he is superior to the rest of us!

NDP = Christophobic anti-Christian agenda
Liberal = Christophobic anti-Christian agenda
Conservative = Capitulation to anti-Christian agenda

when Paul Martin’s father was in the Liberal Party he called it “The Party of Catholics”…hopefully those people have all left the party since Justin spit in all their faces…Trudeau doesn’t care because the Muslims have just begun to outnumber Catholics worldwide and that is why Trudeau is courting the Muslims…he knows they are multiplying rapidly in numbers here and worldwide and will give him the power he needs.

SEE: http://1389blog.com/2013/08/19/now-this-is-disgusting-39/

I guess the same Shakespeare, who Butt quoted, might also have said “the devil can quote the Koran for his purposes” had he been living in a Muslim state, at that time…the point being that any holy book can be quoted by evil men for their purposes…but Butt’s comment AT EASTER, implied that PRACTICING CHRISTIANS ARE, IN FACT, QUOTING THE BIBLE FOR THEIR OWN PURPOSES AS THE DEVIL DOES.

So Christians, there is all the evidence you need of the attitude of Butt and Justin toward us…nice to know when our rights are flying out the doors daily that we will never be able to count on a government made up of the likes of them.

Muslims, also, beware of the attitude in the Liberal Party: Ashley Martin, Trudeau’s social media manager tweeted that “religious people are less intelligent than atheists” …so you Muslims are also on the Liberal Party’s list of ‘less intelligent’ Canadians…along with all of us ‘less intelligent religious people’…just in case you missed it…beware those who think they are superior to you!

Look at the picture at 1:27. Buttface is head over heels in love with Turdo. I wonder if Sophie knows. Both boys are humiliating to Canadians just like Turdo’s mother was.

Butts is probably using Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals – A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals”, as his playbook, a book that Alinsky dedicated to Lucifer, “the first radical.
Alinsky laid out a set of basic principles to guide the actions and decisions of radical organizers and the People’s Organizations they established. The organizer, he said, “must first rub raw the resentments of the people; fan the latent hostilities to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act.” The organizer’s function, he added, was “to agitate to the point of conflict” and “to maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a ‘dangerous enemy.’” “The word ‘enemy,’” said Alinsky, “is sufficient to put the organizer on the side of the people”; i.e., to convince members of the community that he is so eager to advocate on their behalf, that he has willingly opened himself up to condemnation and derision.
So, while not lying or becoming an evil person like Alinsky, why not learn from what he wrote and give the Left a taste of its own medicine. For example, hammer the Left for its anti-Christian bigotry. Thus, ANDRZEJ SZKODA your suggestion “why don’t we use the same language as lefties: G. Butthead is a Christianophobic hater!” has some merit. I don’t tweet, but those who do, can.

This is all very discouraging, but not surprising. I don’t what else constructive I can add, as engaging in disparaging slurs and vitriol accomplishes nothing. He is who he is.
commented 2015-04-06 19:06:19 -0400
What an ass this Gerald Butts is. Using a bible quote to disrespect Christians on Easter Sunday. I can’t figure out why all politicians are behaving this way other than I suspect the people in government must be satanic devil worshippers themselves (probably the reason Butts used the line of devils quoting the bible because he’s one of them). Its sounds insane and far fetched but so do they ( most liberal and ndp politicians ). Happy Easter to everyone.

Let me quote Gerald Butts, in his own words, if I may:

Here is Gerald Butts on his former boss, McGuinty:

“What do you admire the most about the Premier you worked with?
He is the one of the most authentic people I have ever met. In the five years I spent working in the Premier’s Office, he put the public interest first, even when those decisions did not serve his obvious political interest.”


I urge Rebel followers to spread this information, and this like, far and wide. Let Canadians know that if they vote for Trudeau, they are getting McGuinty.

Thank you Ezra. Nothing less than a reflection of a sleazy, classless and undignified Trudeau camp! And, no he would never dare make disparaging comments about Muslims and the Qu’aran.
commented 2015-04-06 18:03:06 -0400
An obvious anti-Christian bias in his tweet. But what is so surprising? Christians are the new heretics in our post-modern, liberal society, fit for nothing better than ridicule, disdain, and dismissal. What is surprising is that we are still permitted to celebrate our holidays and proclaim the Word of God as freely as we do. Perhaps not for long, however, if Justin Trudeau gets elected!
commented 2015-04-06 18:01:10 -0400
This is rather scathing really, I just don’t believe that the average liberal voter is buying this crap the more trudeau’s back room bone heads are exposed the less votes he will collect. Fyi. There was record attendance in churches for this Easter Sunday surmons at least here in Alberta
commented 2015-04-06 17:55:41 -0400
why don’t we use the same language as lefties: G. Butthead is a christianophobic hater!
commented 2015-04-06 17:40:39 -0400
I heard somewhere Butts shortened his name, someone said his name was "Butthead "
If it is, it fits.Then we can have Butthead and Beavis Running for election.
commented 2015-04-06 17:31:37 -0400
Of course, sadly, I do suspect he can get votes for trudeau. But I’d never asmit that to him.

I will later go back and copy his tweet to our local Liberal candidate so all his followers can see it. (-: not sure yet if I’ll do the same to the local NDP guy who is super proficient with social media – it might help more than hurt him.
commented 2015-04-06 17:28:00 -0400
I just went onto his Twitter account at @gmbutts and found that tweet via the question asked my MP Tim Uppal. Uppal asked, very politely, whay Butts found particularly grievous about Christians quoting scripture. I see no reply from Butts.

I tweeted I think he is secretly on the payroll of NDP because he couldn’t seriously think slagging Christians can get votes for trudeau.
commented 2015-04-06 17:21:06 -0400
I have never felt like parading my faith as much as since hearing about how we Christians are misguided dinosaurs who should be ashamed of our beliefs.

We need a square peg for Trudeau’s Butt .

Gerald Butts is the co-designer of the Green Energy Act of Ontario. He is a very dangerous man to the average Canadian.
commented 2015-04-06 16:45:51 -0400
These remarks don’t surprise me the Christians are not part of the left’s “protected classes” those classes include Islam and all other religions other than Christianity and Judaism, They include as well any “racial minority” so that the left can scream racism if you don’t agree. Those in the protected classes can do anything including rape murder genocide whatever and the left leaning media will ignore it and demonize any that try to report it to the people. People like butts are in no way indicative of the majority of the Canadian populace rather they will use whatever illegal,or immoral statement or action to further their agenda. To the liberals “free speech” means repeat my official party line or you will be attacked as nothing else is tolerated they don’t want those who actually think for themselves.
commented 2015-04-06 16:40:20 -0400
All I can say is that his name is appropriate.
commented 2015-04-06 16:38:52 -0400
We all know that JustinTrudeau is totally incompetent .But the puppet masters will use his much overstated “idol” image and a teleprompter loaded with “hope and change” jargon and populist “middle class” rhetoric , a campaign to fool the public into thinking the world needs him, and only him. But then we will see the people behind the pretty face and the puppeteers will all be as ruthless and misguided as this Gerald Butts, who is a complete leftist whack job. This is not going to be a pretty election.
