Horwath stands behind NDP candidate with “repugnant” views, because free speech

Kudos to the Toronto Sun’s Joe Warmington for exposing the repugnant views of the NDP’s Mississauga Centre candidate, Laura “The Librarian” Kaminker.

For starters, Kaminker refuses to wear a poppy on Remembrance Day, and thinks anyone who does isn’t doing so to honour veterans, but because they’ve been “brainwashed.”

She’s also against pro sports teams honouring vets by asking fans to stand for an ovation, and it gets worse, because this nutter actually pondered if 9/11 really was an Al-Qaeda attack.

Kaminker was born in America but “fled” to Canada in 2003 to protest her native country’s political stance on wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Unfortunately, it’s unlikely she’d return to the home of the free unless Bernie Sanders was President because she’s also apparently a Marxist!

Earlier this month the PC candidate for Mississauga Centre, Tanya Granic Allen, was booted by her party for allegedly homophobic and Islamophobic remarks.

But a Marxist who hates the idea of honouring war veterans and thinks 9/11 was no biggie, well, NDP leader Andrea Horwath stands by her because freedom of speech and all that.

It’s odd that the free speech defence only pertains to certain topics, and odder still that they miss the irony that without blood spilled on battlefields by millions of soldiers, they wouldn’t have freedom of speech.

What a person says reveals there true values ,or lack thereof in this case.
These are obviously the values of Horwath and her NDP party as she obviously has done nothing to distance herself from her candidate.
Laura Kaminker is unfit to hold office and Horwath should throw her out of her party immediately.Of course she won’t because you know,statist value free speech as long as it is what they believe in .

The last just war was WWII. Anything after was just for resources or profit.

Me thinks this little cream puff should be living in a dictatorship country instead of Canada. These people always open their big mouth to stick their foot in before thinking. Do most Ontario voters live in a cave as they do not seem to remember how the NDP always destroy what they put their hands on. Not one province has ever come out better when they are running things, always worse. If they get in, Ontarians had better shut up about their plight in the near future, Watch Out. Once in & you’ve had enough & you will, go & bang your head on the door, so you can be wide awake at the next election.
