Top Liberal: Sex ed "hurting the brand badly in certain ethnic communities"

Rebel Staff

In today's Globe and Mail, Lawrence Martin writes about a conversation he had with "a top strategist" for the Liberal Party:

"In the Greater Toronto Area, where the election may well be decided, a top strategist told me that the biggest drag on their numbers is not their own doing. It’s the Ontario Liberal government’s early age sexual education policy. “I’m not kidding. It’s hurting the brand badly in certain ethnic communities, especially in the west 905.”

No one who's watched The Rebel's reports from sex-ed protests outside Queen's Park can fail to notice how many "ethnic communities" are represented in those large gatherings:

"There are, of course, many more problems than that," Lawrence adds.

He complains that the Conservatives "dominate the airwaves," putting "Justin Trudeau on the defensive." The Liberals, he writes, "lack a phrase-maker" and "clarity."

However, the protests against Liberal premier Kathleen Wynne's controversial sex-education curriculum point to a larger problem for the party.

They could be an outward sign that Liberals are losing their traditional grip on "ethnic communities."

The party that has championed "diversity" and "multiculturalism" for generations may want to ask itself where it went wrong.

Ontario's sex-ed curriculum sexualizes young children, undermines parental authority and imposes the government's morality on every Ontario family. TAKE ACTION and visit ProtectOurKids.ca to sign the petition.

I’m surprised Justin has not been asked about his very public appearance with Ben Levin and Kathleen Wynne in 2013. Here’s a photo https://twitter.com/banks_todd/status/556270905123696640 (Btw, I have no idea who the twitter feed belongs to, it just came up when I went looking for photos of Ben and Justin and this one is so perfect because Justin looks so enthralled in the company of his pals. Levin was busted just days later). For more pics just google “justin trudeau and ben levin”. There are many. I’m sure the Lib brand will take a beating in the GTA. Hanging out with pedophile-child porn “nothing is taboo” dirtbags can’t be good for your image.

Kathleen Wynne is obviously an extremist sexual radical who wants to remake Ontario and then Canada in the image of her own ilk of extremist sexual radicalism that wants all of humanity redefined in terms of multiple gender identities. She must be stopped before irreversible damage is done to countless children in this country. Keep demonstrating and demanding her resignation as Premier of Ontario until she either backs off or resigns.

Ex Rebel Coren is boasting about being on 100 Huntley next week . I wonder if he will be pushing his Liberal sex-ed , gay marriage ,climate change ,evolution, and anti-evangelical views on the back sliders at Huntley.

How can you hurt a brand that is already in the toilet? Can’t believe any rational person votes for the liberals.

Kudos to all the parents who took the time to protest the proposed sex ed curriculum! Parents do know what is best for their children and they will not abdicate the role to governments!

In our society few things get so-called “ordinary” or “average everyday” people out into the streets. Most of us have busy lives and barely enough time to look after our families, attend to our work and deal with the demands of daily living. We expect the worst from politicians, mistrust the media and increasingly see all of the institutions that affect our lives (government, academe, business, political parties, unions, etc.) as a coalition of self-interested elitists who line their pockets at our expense and steadfastly ignore our concerns. What’s the point of pushing back? Nothing is going to change. The more entrenched this thinking becomes, the more brazen the coalition partners become in pushing their agendas, be they individual or collective.

Once in a while though, a decision comes along that strikes so deeply at the core of our values that it gets a lot of us average types out of our houses and into the public square. A line has been crossed on an issue that is just too galling and too egregious for many to tolerate. It’s no secret to many of you on this site that among the general public there is unease about the extent to which our children and teenagers are exposed to sexuality and particularly to sexuality that ranges, depending on your point of view, anywhere from the unusual to the shocking and perverse. We are horrified frequently by reports of pedophiles, sexual violence, sexual exploitation, sexual degradation and similar phenomenon. The elite tell us to stop being prudes, phobes and to get with the times. They say that this is about “health” and “safety”. But our concerns are not about what consenting (truly consenting) adults do in the privacy of their homes or hotel rooms. Our concerns are about the socialization of children and young people to sexual exploitation, violence, etc. and the normalization of predatory sexual behaviour aimed at children. And there’s nothing related to “health and safety” in teaching a child about anal sex. This is the kind of deceptive double-speak in which controlling elites tend to engage to pass off their harmful hobbies as good for the rest of us…if only we were smart enough to see it their way.

It is interesting to see the range of cultures and walks of life represented at these protests. What’s gotten all of these people out into the street isn’t ideology or their ethnic origin. It’s the sense that the elite partners have gone too far. It’s bad enough that they ignore our concerns, impose their views, pick our pockets, waste our resources, but when they start trying to prime our kids for sexual exploitation by members of their “club” a line has been crossed that they, in their obliviousness to us, never really knew existed. Keep up the protests. Keep up the pressure.

Where it went wrong? – Liberalism today is a mental disorder.
That’s no joke!

“Conservatives dominate the airwaves”
Has he even tuned into our media lately? Conservatives only dominate the underdog of independent news agencies such as FUNKER530, The Conservative Tribune, Chicks On The Right and here; Rebel Media.

When Liberals say dumb shit like that, it is no wonder these agencies sprung up in the first place…

Finally some common sense voices are being heard…you see most of the time they are OUT THERE BUT THEY ARE ACTUALLY EMPLOYED but when their CHILDREN are involved they are TAKING TIME OFF WORK

All you Liberals out there…now you know that you are not IN TUNE WITH CANADIANS FROM TORONTO!!!
So take this out into the farm country and you can be sure that WE OUT HERE ARE EVEN MORE TICKED OFF!

Get IT, Wynne/ Trudeau? Just wait until you start introducing them to Marijuana!!!!

Well, I said it before, and I’ll say it again. Those in favour of Benny-the-Diddler’s “let’s talk about anal sex with 11 year olds” program fall into one of the following categories: : useful idiots who have been coerced or co-opted into supporting it, or, perverts who get excited about the thought of talking about sex with children.

Here is a conversation I had with a liberal on cbc about how us “conservatives” resort to name calling. My handle is canadiansrule. The “disabled content” comment was originally approved. My guess is that all the liberals flagged the comment. Goes to show a liberal true colors.
Now now, no need to respond to legitimate criticisms with petty, childish name calling… although it does seem to be a common CPC tactic these days… Calling someone a “tard” seems remarkably unkind.

Also, what do you mean by “lefty”?? Is that just what you call anyone who opposes Team Harper, or does it have an actual meaning??

Maybe don’t say racist, bigoted, hateful things and then you wont be labeled a “racist, bigot, homophobe, islamaphobe etc etc etc”… if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck…

Again, anyone who opposes Harper is called a “lefty”… Thanks for showing the term has no meaning, except to refer to those who are not part of the blue team. (also, Liberals are not “left”, just FYI)

@masterpolysci you mean all the parents that opposed that sick dimented twisted sex ed that Wynne wants introduced were all racists? You know what her response to those protesters were? She immediately labelled them homophobes!!! That’s what I’m talking about.

I’m a second generation immigrant from China. i was 14 when I arrived canada and I could clearly remember how after one day I came home telling my parents that school was offering a sex Ed class (which I didn’t even attend) and as soon as I opened my mouth, mentioned sex, my father raged and threw a chair at me. 5000 years of Chinese culture taught them that sex is something “you can only think about but not talk about” (but I am talking about it now, because I grew up the Canadian way). Now I’m 26, I must say I have had a lot of trouble growing up just debating with myself which side of the story is more correct, and what should I do to fit in with everyone, not cause conflict, not telling ppl who praise sexual liberty to go abstinence, and not to challenge those who are religious. I went from abstinence to indulgence then back to abstinence. and my conclusion is, sex definitely makes people more self conscious about their physical appearance (especially for girls), it gives those that are considered “pretty” by social norm (blond hair blue eyes big boobs long legs) more privilege on the survival competition level and lower the confidence of those who are considered to be “ugly”. I think what we can DO as a human being is more important than what we ARE as a human being. And esthetics, feelings are very subjective, what one person finds beautiful, the other doesn’t necessarily think so, what one generation finds beautiful, the next might not buy it, a bigger penis might fit a loser pussy, but a tighter one might not appreciate that. This is just my 2%.

Tara Risser, Michael Coren has confessed a family member of his has come out of the closet as a gay person.

Do you think he should condemn his family member for what is often a very tortured decision, right or wrong? Some will say, yes, condemn him/her, to hell with the consequences.

I don’t know the specifics but if the ER called and told you your child had almost died because s/he preferred suicide to telling you s/he was attracted to the same gender, that s/he had no doubt s/he was gay and had vowed to succeed with suicide the next time if you rejected him/her for his/her sexuality, what would you do?

Suicide is forever. So is loss of loved ones to intolerance. I don’t know the answer. Just saying.

It’s very difficult to walk the line on this but I cut Michael some slack for choosing to love rather than to condemn, sort of like how Christ loved those others condemned.

Guy Fraser, I think your assessment is too ambitious. I doubt most of Ontario has a clue what moral bankruptcy means. Remember Wynne won a majority not that long ago.

I doubt most of Ontario even thinks it is morally weak for Trudeau’s team to throw Kathleen under the bus to rationalize their own failure.

I think Ezra is wrong to oppose children learning anatomically correct labels for genitalia. I think if a child comes home and talks about another student’s vulva or vagina, it is no different than if s/he comes home and tells you about another student’s wee-wee, johnson or doey. Both are creepy. Both are wrong. At the same time children are taught anatomically correct terms they must also be taught it is socially taboo to openly discuss either one’s own or anyone else’s privates. Maybe if kids learn that lesson when they are six, they won’t post photos of their own or anyone else’s genitalia online, regardless what they call them, when they are eleven.

As to the six genders (only six? Why not x+1 so kids can fill in their own?) of course, it is silly. And I think most kids will figure that out pretty quickly. People don’t give kids enough credit. Kids learn, first and foremost, from peers even more than they learn from their parents. Kids will make fun of the idea and that will be the end of it. But as to wishing for the good old days when no one cared that too many gay kids were found hanging in their closets, I’m afraid the LGBTQ lobby is here to stay. In Canada, we don’t reject the different. We include them. We may not agree with them but we do not stigmatize and oppress them. Let alone so bully them that they suicide. At least, in theory we don’t.

Of course, Wynne should have consulted and still should consult parents. What would it hurt her? It’s not like anyone would really expect her to honestly share the results of such consulations, is it? I mean, she could offer an online survey for parents, pretend to score them, then tell us all the majority support the curriculum. If anyone tried to get a FOI access of the raw data, she could simply make some low-level clerk an escape goat and claim s/he deleted it .. Ooops! All gone!!

I’m not saying Wynne would do that just that no one would believe she didn’t. I’m a cynic.

So who do people favour for PC Ontario leader? Either Elliott or Brown must be able to beat not just Wynne but also Horwath. Remember, unions rule in Ontario. What PC candidate will incessantly court Ontario from now until the next election? Because that is what it will take to win in Ontario.

“No one who’s watched The Rebel’s reports from sex-ed protests outside Queen’s Park can fail to notice how many “ethnic communities” are represented in those large gatherings". Michael Cohen couldn’t have watched your reports then. He was there and saw an elvis impersonator and basically it was a gathering of morons. Not those words. Regardless, my respect for him is gone. That was a very unprofessional temper tantrum, leftist kind of way to act. Wow.

@guy Fraser It isn’t just that they are morally bankrupt but in true liberal fashion they are running a debt. 6 genders? It is incredible to me to think how deeply Ontario is in debt and Kathlleen Wynn is more worried about making sure little children know which plumbing to use.

Finally Ontario is figuring out that the Liberal Brand is Morally Bankrupt.
Early Sex-Ed, Banning people from running if they are Pro-Life, Supporting Prostitution, Supporting Heroine Injection Sites, Promoting the use of Marijuana for recreational use, Promoting Sharia and Condemning all traces of Christianity from Every aspect of Canadian Life including Catholic Schools.

I wonder how Global News spun Alan Carter’s “gotcha” moments.

There IS no scientific evidence to support six genders.

It’s encouraging to see many taking the NON PC stance that there is still a thing called PERVERSION when it comes to sexuality! Enough of this “anything goes” and “if it feels good, do it!” nonsense!
