Kevin O’Leary Is No Conservative

Faith GoldyRebel Host
 

It's official: Kevin O'Leary is running for the leadership of Canada's Conservative Party. Here's a segment from my rant on Ezra's program last year, on why he's a fake conservative, pranking the party!

Sorry Jimmy and I’ve got to quit entertaining you by responding to your postings… Kelly Leach is a confirmed queer that enjoys slopping at the globalist trough.. Chris Alexander is a full-time career politician as well as the rest… Everything that was posted about Brad Trost is what the man lives breathes and believes.!!
He could very well be Canada’s Trump card.!!
I don’t really believe that you really believe the crap that you post and that you just enjoy stirring the pot which is fine.
Everybody can see that our present administration is in way over their heads and all are corrupted that’s why I can’t believe that you believe what you’re posting. I think you’re just looking for some shits and giggles for entertainment.

Bill,

I don’t believe I said anything about Brexit, other than it will ultimately be a failure.

As for Hillary – EVERYONE underestimated the utter stupidity of Americans. Canadians are smarter that and would never vote for someone like Trump here.

There is just no way that Kellie Leitch can win in Canada and the reality is that NO ONE can beat Trudeau per the candidates running for leader with the possible exception of Kevin O’Leary, who will be the best of both worlds to Canadians disappointed with Trudeau – fiscally conservative, but socially liberal. So I am fine is O’Leary is PM.

This trumps (no pun unintended) anything that Kelly Leach or Chris Alexander or Kevin O’Leary or anybody else that thinks they have a running platform for the conservative leadership race…!! But more importantly for the next prime minister of Canada.!!

Please support Brad Trost.

As far as immigration and ISIS, this from a recent post at his Facebook page:
But the greatest threat to these commitments and Canadians’ way of life is terrorism motivated by Islamic extremism.
That is why as Leader of the Opposition I will push, and as Prime Minister I will introduce legislation, to shut down immigration to Canada from countries that support, encourage or harbour terrorists or Islamic extremism.
Let me be clear: No immigrants from countries that support, encourage or permit Islamic extremism.
But . . . genuine refugees (which presumably would include Christians undergoing genocide) from countries that support, encourage or harbour terrorists or Islamic extremism will be welcome!

Kevin O’Leary is a fool and a coward. He joined the Conservative Party AFTER the French language debate, because is is Froncophone illiterate.
The man is an ignorant and vicious pig.
Vote for Kellie Lietch for intelligent, articulate, and honest forthright leadership.
Kevin O’Leary is a complete and total prick (to use his linguistic way of thinking).
commented 2017-01-20 17:48:35 -0500
That is not how it reads Marty, but as you state enough said.
Roger is spot on “all these politico’s at present are just the same crap in a different wrapper”.
commented 2017-01-20 16:28:14 -0500
HYACINTH although I do not want to carry on and on with you about this subject, I must say that if you are interpreting all the information about O’Leary as ‘badmouthing’ rather than ‘informing’ that is your prerogative and will determine your choice.
I have listened to interviews with O’Leary and have heard and seen him for a long time on Dragons Den and Shark Tank and hence my conclusions about him, which were reinforced by Arlene. Therefore, I think he is a self centered, mean mouthed, callous jerk and I would never support him.
I only comment on O’Leary when stories or articles about him appear, other than that I don’t waste anytime thinking about this jerk.
I have also listened to Mr. Brad Trost and believe that he is the best choice in my opinion, and I’m not afraid to let it be known that I support him.
So again I will say that Mr. Brad Trost will definitely get my vote.
commented 2017-01-20 14:33:34 -0500
Marty, if you want to win someone over to the candidate you support then you use honey not vinegar. The more people badmouth a candidate the more people tune out. There is a difference between informing and badmouthing. Trost might be the best man for the job but how you advocate for him is a total turn off. I agree with Roger, “all these politico’s at present are just the same crap in a different wrapper”, their supporters present a more clearer representation of what could be expected from their candidate of choice.
commented 2017-01-20 14:24:43 -0500
O’Leary is too arrogant for my liking. I think he thinks that he’s Donald Trump because he has money. I’m going with Brad Trost, the only one who seems like a real conservative.
commented 2017-01-20 14:00:32 -0500
HYACINTH nobody is ‘pushing’ the CBC article, at least I was not pushing it.
I referred to it for further information on the much vaunted O’Leary by some people, and to point out that someone close to him actually voiced the same concerns as did I and others. The man is a sleaze.
The fact that the CBC aired the article does not make O’Leary a saint, or someone to vote for.
However, you like every one must make your own choices as I have done in regard to O’Leary.
I have never liked the man and have always considered him to be a mean self centered jerk. If he can’t see a profit or a way to make money for himself then he just doesn’t care.
I have said so in many posts, and now a person comes along that knows him and has been close to him that has the same opinion of him that I and others have been saying from the beginning and her name is Arlene Dickinson, and she clearly gives her educated opinion of this jerk O’Leary, so I invited posters to view and listen to her.
If you vote for him only because CBC aired the article by Arlene, then its your choice.
I hate the CBC more than anyone and have also said so in many post in the past. In my mind it is a toss up as to who I hate more Justin Trudeau or the CBC.
Brad Trost will get my vote.
commented 2017-01-20 13:59:57 -0500
Enough with the liberal/Conservative crap.

If we haven’t noticed yet that all these politico’s at present are just the same crap in a different wrapper, make whom ever you vote for put what he is going to do in writing and vote for no-one that does not, and if they lie drag them out kicking and screaming, enough of letting UN puppets dictate and destroy our Countries future.

KAREN DE MANBEY ..
Don’t be foolish Karen… Canada won’t be losing jobs because of Trump Canada will be losing jobs because of our federal administration’s policies and their inability to do anything that requires critical thought or responsibility.
You should be very happy that Hillary and the boy child are not in collusion over North America

This is a JOKE! First stop pulling the hard left media games by taking things liberal. While you are drooling over Trump who has been married three times, fooled around on his first wife in public while she was home with the kids, and spent millions supporting the biggest of liberals like Shumer (he had a fundraising event at his estate in Florida for him) and get to the economic issues. You are supporting an isolationist (gee, it is okay for Trump to try to pawn off the middle-east crises to Putin) but not okay for Canada to stay out of wars, a protectionist (that kind of “conservative” has never been suceessful – see Hoover), and a HUGE (or YUGE) big spending liberal (new social programs for child care, no fixing the old age retirement programs). You have lost ALL credibility of being conservative.

You better change your bib today because you are drooling watching the TV today as your big fat liberal friend in the states is being sworn in!!!!!! Oh by the way, talk to all the Canadian who lose jobs as Trump demands (Putin style) that all American companies make everything within their own borders.
Pick that apart Ezra. Not all of us are so stupid to just blindly follow your “fake news” like crying about marrying goats.
commented 2017-01-20 12:15:47 -0500
Ron you are pushing the CBC article as well? Makes me wonder. Just like the badmouthing of Trump it sounds far too familiar. Who and what is truly behind it if the CBC is championing it.

If any prospective candidate can only climb the ranks of popularity by having their contenders badmouthed then that candidate in my opinion is not worth a second look.
commented 2017-01-20 09:50:49 -0500
I don’t really know him, never watched his shows, or dug deep so I can’t pipe in on whether or not he’s a true conservative. Not sure if he’ll win the leadership as he has a few things going against him including not being bilingual. That just won’t fly in eastern Canada. I do know that he’s a smart man as he knows if he doesn’t win he’s going to do a lot of damage to Jr. Potatohead in Ottawa, Winbag in Ontario, and that evil Bitch Nutley here in Alberta. That I love!

“Everyone should read Arlene Dickinson’s article on Kevin O’Leary. It was on the CBC news site.”

Marty, what you just pointed out makes me favor Kevin O’Leary all the more. Why? The fact that CBC has reported someone dissing him makes me think twice about the man. CBC has proven time and again which side they are on – they are the official mouthpiece of the Liberal Tent. Pierre Trudeau gave one of his buddies the top job of running CBC many years ago, nothing has changed, it is the Liberal Broadcasting Corporation under the guise of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Support Brad Trost in his bid for the conservative leadership.

Everyone should read Arlene Dickinson’s article on Kevin O’Leary. It was on the CBC news site.
This is a woman that was a co-host with the selfish jerk on Dragon’s Den and Shark Tank.
Take heed of what she has to say about O’Leary.
Not much different than what I have been saying about this selfish, mean jerk with only his own self interest in mind.
Brad Trost for conservative leader!
commented 2017-01-20 00:26:58 -0500
If anyone does the research you would find O’Leary has no Character, I saw that when he was on Dragon’s Den, he is a Self Absorbed, Ego Driven, Elitist, Wind Bag, that if put in office Will disappoint you. Take an issue that is of great importance to you, if O’Leary has no intention of satisfying your concerns on the matter, then you should cross him off the list. He, will just be another individual in the race, who will split the vote for leader, quite possibly preventing the most needed candidate from winning the leadership bid. There is already the threat of Liberal supporters buying in as Conservatives to vote in the leadership race and high jack the election to vote in the candidate that poses the least threat to Trudeau. We as Conservatives need to pick that ONE candidate that best represents a Conservative Platform, not a Politically Correct one. And whoever that candidate is Will be easy to determine as the media will criticize the candidate and all the other candidates will attack them as well certain sectors of our society will react out of fear toward that candidate. The Liberal machine will rally against that person to persecute that individual and call them evil. If you see that happening so much to any ONE candidate, then that is the ONE that we should communally vote for. Just keep in mind the Trump Campaign, that will help put everything into proper perspective.

Please support Brad Trost in the upcoming federal election against Justin Trudeau and his very liberal party goers..!!
commented 2017-01-19 21:11:30 -0500
Jimmy – you told me Brexit didn’t stand a hope and that Hillary would win in a landslide – forgive me if I equate your political clairvoyance with mass density of a mouse fart.

I think Kelly Liech stands a very good chance and the controversial issues she has chosen resonate with a majority of Canadians who also share her point of view. Just because left wing parties deny the outcome of their own polling on these issues doesn’t mean they still don’t resonate with the public.

The next election will be fought on issues important to the electorate, not those dictated by party wonks and they sycophants in media. Canadians are concerned about paying the rent/mortgage, putting fuel in the car, keeping the house warm and the lights on and saving enough to put kids through school and retire on – ALL these prospects look increasingly bleak and ALL are related to Liberal policy excesses and all have conservative cures – regular people have no time for lofty pseudo intellectual diatribes about sexual identity, phony climate crisis, misplaced environmentalism and costly social engineering projects – they just want to get through the working week without worrying about their job and finances stretching far enough.

A conservative can win on Progressive conservative principle alone – less tax through less government and less interference in people’s lives and the free market and demand economics. Frankly regardless of who the CPC chose I think the next election is theirs to lose given the reckless irresponsible blundering policies of the current government.

O’Leary can wipe the room with Junior, but can he hold a party and its support base together – takes all 3 to win an election.

David White,

Oh I understand, but you suck at sarcasm and the rest of your posts on The Rebel confirm that you often believe in crazy shit, hyperbole and fear mongering, so it wouldn’t shock me if you believe that Kevin O’ Leary has a goat agenda.

Speaking of understanding, JIMMY, my original post was sarcasm. If you took your head out of your ass for a moment, that fact wouldn’t have flown over the top.

Less than 24 hours to go Jimmy, think you can get Hillary over the top in time? Keep counting.

Bill,

A traditional conservative cannot beat Trudeau. Conservatives need to go more to the center if they want to win elections, which is why they took gay marriage off the table.

commented 2017-01-19 14:17:29 -0500
I keep hearing O’Leary say the same thing about “reforming” or “remaking” or “changing” the party – so this bears saying a second time.

I think the first thing he has to do is read the party policy manual – you know, the one created by and democratically ratified by the party members – he needs to remember he is bound by these and no, the leader can’t make it up as he goes.

Better rethink a leadership bid Kevin if you think you are going to “redesign” the party to fit your politics/agendas – we have 2 other parties with a top down power structure you may find more to your liking – this one is controlled by the members.

Any attempt at top down elitist easter power structures or policy change will fragment the party’ “big tent” – libertarians, populists and western conservatives will abandon the party – O’Leary may pick up a few stray votes from mushy eastern swing voters but he will lose core support west of the lake head.
