Ontario Deputy NDP leader Jagmeet Singh has just declared his candidacy for the leadership of the federal NDP, which means becoming the Prime Minister is the end game.
And true to form, like pretty much every other NDP leadership candidate ever, Singh has a soft spot for murderous lunatics as long as those murderous lunatics are from his side of the political spectrum.
Case in point:
His glowing eulogizing tweet for Fidel Castro on the day the long serving Cuban dictator finally took his rightful place on a hot rock in hell.
“He saw a country wracked by poverty, illiteracy & disease. So he lead a revolution that uplifted the lives of millions. RIP”
This isn’t an anomalous statement. This who the NDP are. They will worship any old communist as long as he’s a communist and will overlook everything else the communist says or does. To an NDPer, the ends justify the means.
You can judge people by their heroes.
You have to wonder what rights of Canadians these socialists would be willing to strip away in the name of their failed ideology if we ever let them near power at the federal level.
