Why Payette “may not be fit” to serve as Governor General

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The Governor General, Julie Payette, is a former astronaut, so it should be no real shock that she was speaking at a science conference.

But she used her speech to mock people who don’t believe in climate change and those who do believe horoscopes, creationism and God.

Payette was dripping with condescension and elitism – even rolling her eyes at one point.

She isn't supposed to be intentionally divisive and partisan.

Instead, the Governor General is supposed to be an apolitical national unifier, a symbol of stability, and the Queen's representative in our constitutional monarchy.

And the Queen happens to be the symbolic head of the Anglican faith, worldwide.

In fact, Queen Elizabeth holds the official title “Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England.”

I'm not saying the Governor General needs to promote Anglicanism or even be Anglican, but her role is directly tied to the head of a large Christian faith.

When Payette mocks people of faith, she is mocking the Queen too.

If Payette truly believes what she said in her speech about God, then wouldn't her own ethics and convictions have precluded her from taking the job in the first place...?

Right wingers are making too big of a deal out of this. Screw the queen. We don’t need them. I like what France did to get rid of their royalty.

Space Moose, you screwball lefties are a riot. You serve as a perfect example of the third pillar of Leftiedom- the refusal to exercise discernment. So you think the Reign of Terror that followed the murder of the French king was a good thing? The French lefties (as always) killed many times more people than the King ever did, as rotten as he was.

“Between June 1793 and the end of July 1794, there were 16,594 official death sentences in France, of which 2,639 were in Paris.24 However, the total number of deaths in France was much higher, owing to death in imprisonment, suicide and casualties in foreign and civil war.”
Yeah, bright idea.

And are you seriously putting our Queen in the same category as Louis the 16th? He was an absolute monarch. Our queen is a state figure head.

And the problem here is that you have demonstrated in this and other posts that you also uphold the first two pillars of leftiedom:
1. The refusal to learn from your mistakes.
2. the refusal to learn from other people’s mistakes. i.e. history.

Sam.. The dismantling of your post by me it’s not worth my time beyond this… I can tell that you think you’re a literary genius but the truth is you’re a literary cripple and your ignorance is only overshadowed by the fact of your lack of facts.

How is that rebel petition about the portrait of the queen coming down?

Sam Gautama, Tsk Tsk you are comparing Christianity to Isalm, or Judaism to Islam, that’s your first fallacy. From there, the rest of your post crumbles.

It’s amazing how people of faith have such thin skins when someone points out that we should not be guided by fairly tales that are thousands of years old; and which were all written by old middle Eastern men. They never flew in a helicopter or into space, connected via Facebook or Skype, never imagined our cities or the Internet or any of the technologies which we are a part of today. Yet, somehow the ever perpetuating cycle of brainwashing our children has led to a world divided by two religions who believe in the same God yet kill each other. The values we need today aren’t faith in ancient dead desert writings, but in the exploration of science, in facts, in integrity and truth – something that we need to fight for in the face of such a world lost in such profound delusion that we are coming to the destruction of human civilization. The example of this stupid thinking is not far from Canada..just below us in fact. Too many stupid American HypoChristians have put the power to destroy the planet into the hands of a malignant narcissistic sexual predator, a LIAR they believe in. They use that faith tool they’ve developed in their brains I guess. . And they are too stupid to even see it because they have been poisoned by the Russian propaganda machine’s polarization of their small political brains.

Rex Murphy elegantly stated in his article, “Policy is for the elected, not the selected”:
http://nationalpost.com/opinion/rex-murphy-governor-general-places-herself-as-umpire-of-questions-of-faith-science
His article included an extended clip of Payette’s ‘lecture’ which is worth considering as well. She furthermore declared, “Democracy and society have always gained from learned debates, whether it is political, scientific, economic. But we have to remain vigilant, and we cannot let ourselves fall into complacency. And we must be vocal, all the time, everywhere, every single one of us so that we can deconstruct misinformation.”
By “we”, of course, she meant her fellow so-called ‘progressives’ like Trudeau, McKinnon, Butts and the media party, etc, encouraging them to ‘construct misinformation’. There is a lesson in there, however, for us who value and love the truth and freedom of speech, namely, that ‘we must be vocal, all the time, everywhere, every single one of us so that we can deconstruct misinformation’.

Records were completely expunged and sealed just before she’s a pointed and Governor General.. nothing to see here folks move along

So many Canadians were deeply saddened by the Governor General’s comments. For the first time in our lives the one appointed to be the Queen’s representative spoke sneeringly at the people she represents.

She follows a line of gracious men and women who held their office with graciousness, respect, and service.

Of all her role, most important is that she would point to the place of God in Canada.
commented 2017-11-05 00:07:51 -0400
Uh, she may not be fit for Governor General because she literally killed someone due to erratic driving? And got off scot free? We have a murderer in Parliament.

The origin of that first life that started off the so-called evolutionary process is still a conundrum for evolutionists. However, for Payette that is settled as she mocks that “life was a divine intervention” and, instead, trumpets that it came “out of a natural process”, which, by the way, would contradict one of the laws of biology, biogenesis, namely, that life comes from life. The answer for that first life according to nobel laureate, Francis Crick (1916-2004), the co-discoverer of the DNA double helix structure, was not that it came “out of a natural process”, but, rather, that it was ‘life from space’, namely, that aliens sent life to earth, known as ‘directed panspermia’! (I wonder if they are telling the kids about Crick’s proposition in school?)
A lot of the impetus for SETI, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, is to find that ‘creator’, aliens, that Payette believes in.

Jan G,

Come on – you may not like what she said, but she is clearly more intelligent than you and most people in general based on her knowledge, education and experience.
-—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Some people are educated beyond their intelligence. I knew a brain surgeon who couldn’t hang a picture. Great surgeon but lousy at every day things. Ability in one field does not make you great in all fields. Payette is living proof of the Peter Principle:

“The Peter principle is a concept in management theory formulated by educator Laurence J. Peter and published in 1969. It states that the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate’s performance in their current role, rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role. Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and “managers rise to the level of their incompetence”.

Jay, I must commend you on your post. Keep up the thinking like this (apart from the youthful vigour nonsense) and you’ll be in good shape.

Frank, Are these “greatest minds on Earth” you refer to the ones who worked for the IPCC? Why then would the scientists that wrote the paper on global warming for the IPCC have to threaten to sue the UN to get their names off the report after the executive media summary was drafted which bent all their research to suit the UN agenda, changed the facts they had presented to support the hoax of man made global warming? Oh, are those the scientists you refer to? What about the former head of the IPCC joining forces with Lord Moncton in approaching the world court to make it a punishable crime for those promoting the hoax of man made global warming? Bye the way Frank, did you know that burning ball of fire 93 million miles away, the one that controls our climate and has since the beginning, does not accept VISA, MasterCard or cash to change it’s ways, no matter how much Gore and Suziki tell you money will change the climate? Please crawl out from under the skirts of the GG and Climate Barbi and argue a point yourself, not just say over and over that they should be believed. “She is all about science, logic and facts” but as an astronaut she can’t understand that the sun controls the climate, not man? Crawl out from under their Frank, you are depleting what little reputation you may have left.

She should be careful that she doesn’t earn the name “rocketship Barbie”or “space cadet Barbie” The same way Catherine Mccanna earned “climate Barbie” by treating people who disagreed with her as dissidents. It is not a government job too sell ideals to the people. the position of our governments is to serve the immediate welfare of the tax paying residence over any others in this country.
commented 2017-11-04 09:30:52 -0400
The governor general requires no scientific opinion concerning outer space, climate change,or any subject that is debated in the House of Commons.. The Governor General’s position is the protection of the Canadian people from an overly ambitious overreaching government who is doing things that is not in the best interest of the people or the country… The Governor General’s role is to make sure the people do not suffer as a result of decisions made by the ruling party. Yes he/she is the queens representative Who keeps the government in check and her opinions at home and atvthe voting station like everybody else… Her only concern is the "immediate welfare " of the country and people.

The promotion of American Manifest Destiny will mean that the Queen and all her representatives will be expunged from America.

Time for Canada to grow up.

Maurice Potvin,

It is a waste of my time. She buries you in intelligence and yet you think you know better.

Sound, logical facts have been provided endlessly by some of the greatest minds on Earth, but that hasn’t been good enough for certain mouth breathers.
commented 2017-11-04 02:14:07 -0400
Frank Hohimer, you haven’t addressed my presentation, which is based on of deductive logic and the knowable facts. Do you have a logical defense? Can you outline more credible deductive logic and sound fact-based evidence than I? If you can let’s hear it. Just because YOU continue to state that it’s all about science, evidence and facts doesn’t make it so. If you make a claim, you really should back it up with sound, logical reasons why you believe what you say. I’m all about objective truth. Let’s see if your reasoning is more logically coherent than mine. Maybe you can change my mind. Give it a shot.
