It’s all about Olivia: Mulcair makes his own Eve Adams blunder

Mitch WolfeRebel Blogger

NDP Leader Tom Mulcair just committed his worst political blunder of this ongoing unofficial federal election campaign. He permitted and in fact promoted the candidacy of Olivia Chow to run as the federal NDP candidate in the newly-formed downtown Toronto Spadina-Fort York riding. 

Yes, that Olivia Chow! Yesterday’s, Yesterday’s, Yesterday’s Woman. Holier than Chow. The Yoko Ono of federal politics. Chow has more political baggage than Imelda Marcos has shoes.

Chow is back from the political dead. The NDP’s own version of the Zombie Apocalyspe.

Note: zombies are undead creatures, typically depicted as mindless, reanimated human corpses with a hunger for human flesh.

In the case of NDP Chow, she is a mindless, reanimated human corpse with a hunger for hard-working Canadian taxpayers’ money, government hand-outs, government pensions and large taxpayer-funded personal expense accounts. And since Mulcair is competitive, the zombie Chow has a new found hunger for political power.

Before we know it, other long dead NDP hateful, anti-Israel wingnuts as Libby Davies and Svend Robinson, will be making their own zombie comebacks.

Mulcair, a Quebec-based politician, like the clueless Trudeau - who promoted the toxic Eve Adams in Eglinton-Lawrence - does not know frack all about Toronto politics.

In the recent Toronto city mayoral election, Chow was thoroughly humiliated as she came in a very distant third (23%,) losing to John Tory (40%) and Doug Ford (33%).

Chow did not even carry the municipal wards of her former federal riding of Trinity-Spadina.

Chow lost with good reason.

Chow came across as a horrible politician and public figure. She was inarticulate, ill-informed, uninspiring and generally confused and ignorant about the issues.

When Chow stupidly and arrogantly favored buses for Scarberians as opposed to subways, she lost all of the suburban vote and the whole election right then and there.

No one believed or trusted Chow when she talked out of two sides of her mouth. On one side, Chow talked fiscal prudence; on the other side, Chow promised budget-breaking and expensive social programs for children and unemployed youth.

Chow’s pathetic political performance exposed a harsh political truth.

Chow’s previous political success, especially in federal politics, was clearly as a result Chow riding the coat tails of her charismatic, charming and articulate husband, Jack Layton.

And without Layton or his people to prop up the wooden Chow, she fell dramatically on her political face.

Mulcair and his people think that in this upcoming federal election, Chow will fare better as she is running in Spadina-Fort York. Parts of this new federal riding constitute her old federal riding of Trinity-Spadina, which she represented as an NDP MP prior to her ill-fated attempt to run for Toronto city mayor.

But this time, Chow faces a formidable, street-fighting opponent in incumbent Liberal MP Adam Vaughan, who has already publicly and mercilessly lambasted Chow for being a power-hungry cynical, opportunist and serial quitter. Accusing of Chow of quitting Ottawa to run for the Toronto mayor. And now quitting Ryerson as a visiting instructor to run once again federally for the NDP in parts of her old riding.

This federal campaign will be down and dirty and nasty. And thoroughly enjoyable.

I predict Chow will once again be humiliated in defeat.

But more importantly, the very fact that Mulcair has put his good name behind Chow, this radical socialist tax and spend, anti-biz, anti-private sector, John Sewell-like scary/crazy career pol from the 80s will hurt Mulcair personally and the NDP brand in all of Ontario.

For conservative political pundits, the return of the politically unrepentant and undead zombie Chow is like Christmas and Hanukah in July.

In the next few months we are going to have so much fun driving political stakes in that cold-hearted Chow. 

Check out the undead Chow’s recent campaign announcement. Her mouth is moving, but not the rest of her face. She is mouthing the words. But her eyes do not move. She is soulless, as Mulcair pulls her strings. Scary.

Chow’s campaign is going to be a freaking horror show.

I can’t wait.

We need a referendum on the demise of the Marxist CBC, and I think most tax paying citizens of Canada, that value true democracy, would vote to rid ourselves of this diseased bastion of liars! I look forward to that day!

@ Jimmy Da Silva: “if the phone rang with high profile job offers to have their own shows, Ezra and Brian would light The Rebel on fire and become CBC employees.” I highly doubt that Jimmy.

While you all may not agree with her politically, she is actually one of the few politicians that actually gives a shit and isn’t corrupted.

Well, I’m not convinced that Mulcair has made that great a mistake. She might not win, but she’ll take some votes away from Vaughan. And Chow’s motives and principles are the same as those of many other career politicians – a species that is well-represented in all the parties.

Truth North,

Everyone who works at The Rebel would KILL for jobs at the CBC, despite attacking them because they have been Canada’s official broadcaster forever and even Stephen Harper supports the CBC as well as the majority of Canadians.

But again, if the phone rang with high profile job offers to have their own shows, Ezra and Brian would light The Rebel on fire and become CBC employees.

Isn’t it interesting how the liberals amongst us protest this article as being beneath the Blaze, and wring their hands because Yoko’s many, many problems and shortcomings are illustrated through the use of sarcasm. One wonders if they protest as loudly over at the CBC when their publicly funded writers use the same approach to criticize Prime Minister Harper.

Don’t bother. Rhetorical question.

With half her face sliding from her head, I am surprised Olivia is running again after her stroke – the “win and die” strategy as created by Jack looks as though it will have a second act.

no surprise, alok mukerjee has taken chow’s place at the progressive joke called ryerson.. but one good thing about this is…either chow or the enraged adam vaughn must lose..

Perhaps she can run on the “At least I’m not a white male” ticket like she did against Rob Ford.

Goddamn, is this what our political discourse has sunk to? Can we not expect journalists to maintain some air of professionalism and decency when writing about politicians they don’t agree with or like? I realize this is an op-ed, but what does it accomplish if your primary goal isn’t to critique policy, or to express a dissenting political perspective, but is rather to simply ridicule, antagonize and inflame the opposition? I guess you guys need to generate clicks and all, and articles like do tend to attract a lot of attention, both good and bad…but come on. This isn’t TMZ. Be better than this.

Re my previous Blog. My miss spelling of Fried Rice is in no way intended to be a slur on Chinese People. I, just thought it was amusing.
During my twelve year stint in the Army I lived in Hong Kong for five years. I met and Married a Chinese Girl, who was my Wife for thirty years, until I lost her to Cancer. Please do not consider me a Racist.
Having said that, I will say that if Islam was a Race, you could rightly call me a Racist.

Tom’s biggest mistake, besides being born, is that he likes Flied Lice.

Chow is a “career politician” and nothing more. This will haunt angry Tom, and he is mistaken if he thinks otherwise. Some people just don’t know when to quit, and this is true in Chow’s case. Tom must have promised her the moon, and I hope that we make sure that he doesn’t get to deliver it.

A couple of good chuckles there. Thanks. I too can’t wait! “Chow riding the coat tails of her charismatic, charming and articulate husband, Jack Layton.” Too true methinks. As much as I dislike NDP policies, I certainly would have considered sitting down to have a beer with the man to pick his brain. A testament to his personality.

To be fair, she has had a stroke. But I am glad Mulcair has made this blunder, surprising though that it is. What makes him think she can pull this off is beyond me.
Things are unfolding as they should.
