Venezuela-loving Ontario NDP candidate not the only one with a “soft spot” for Marxist tyrants

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


Ontario NDP candidate for Ottawa Centre, Joel Harden, has got it bad for maniacal deceased dictator Hugo Chavez.

According to the Toronto Sun’s Mark Bonokoski, Hardin’s 469 page doctoral thesis celebrated Venezuelan socialism and the Bolivarian Revolution.

Harden wrote “the example of Venezuela it is argued exemplifies the participatory radicalism and new solidarities crucial to developing activist politics in the 21st century.”

You'd have to be certifiable to think that there’s anything good coming out of Venezuela right now, or to think that what happened there is some sort of template that should be duplicated in successful Western countries.

It’s a wretched pit of centrally planned misery that’s getting worse every day.

But that hasn't stopped far left-wing socialists, like Harden embedded in Ontario’s New Democrat Party from looking at Venezuela as a socialist success story.

Loving murderous dictators is a feature of the NDP, not a bug, and today I’ll show you all the other high level NDPers with a soft spot for Marxist tyrants.

Sadly, no amount of human suffering will be enough to change NDP hearts and minds about the failures of Venezuela.

“Common Sense commented 20 hours ago

What’s “Ford Derangement Syndrome”? Not being a Warmington-style ball-gargler?

It’s kind of funny because I’d say the Rebel is at least as “deranged” about Trudeau.

I am looking forward to it, but only for awhile. Problem is, look at Hillary, she’s still unglued and getting more messed up; just like Andrew. FDS will not be shortlived like Andrew.

Wait…..I got it! Free Tommy and sell the BBC!
commented 2018-06-06 15:21:17 -0400
Of course if the CBC is sold, that may pose a problem….

Andrew, if Ford wins tomorrow, The Rebel will still have the Boy Blunder, Nutley and Horgan to fill it’s cyberspace. Also, there will be a daily serving of Ford Derangement Syndrome to laugh at, served up by the Nasty Post, the Red Star and the Mop and Pail.

Andrew the fake PhD Stephenson, so you will be leaving this site for good when Doug Ford wins tomorrow? Or are you going to stick around for when Notley and Trudeau are ousted as well, and then go away?
commented 2018-06-06 14:51:46 -0400
Hey Andrew, lots of tyranny left to report on…don’t worry, there will still be a platform for you to showcase your sh*tposts!!!
commented 2018-06-06 14:35:55 -0400
No worries Ms. Stephenson… There’s the Horgan/Weaver tango in British Columbia, Flush Notley in Alberta, and of course the Boy Blunder in Ottawa…

Oh no Liza, don’t ya know,it’s “investment”.

If Doug Ford wins tomorrow, what will the Rebel do? Without liberals to whine about, you’re really without an MO.

My gawd Doreen that is legalized robbery!

We were updating our wills the other day and our lawyer commented that, should Horwath’s NDP win, inheritance rules will be radically changed. For instance, when one spouse dies the surviving spouse inherits only 50% of the couples’ net worth not 100% as it is now!!!! Think about it!!!

The left for some reason are unable to learn anything from history. The new batch in every generation seem to think they can do it and make it work. All radical socialism causes is misery and death. Why can’t these people accept, that reaching for a Utopian society is handing mentally ill people in power a licence to dictate their lives to them. Who’s and what definition will apply here? It is a dangerous game of Russian roulette and has never ended well yet. What do they think of the results in Venezuela? Somebody should ask them to defend that Utopian nightmare.

Communist failures are never attributed to the philosophy itself by its advocates. And every generation breeds a new group of thinkers who think the and only they can make it work.
I listened to Chavez rant and rave on his weekly TV and radio appearances. Very entertaining but I knew he would destroy the economy and the country.
I still have friends and coworkers stuck and hungry without relief in the foreseeable future.
I would love to see Harden present his thesis and ideas in person to my friends in Barcelona Estado Anzoatigui. I’ll even buy him a one way ticket so he can experience the utopia he thinks his commie ideas create.

‘che’ guevara, a mass murderer who failed to reach the scale of stalin, hitler, mao, pol pot, thanks to the Bolivians… this is but one of the marxist revolutionaries that todays ndipsticks adore… they may try to invoke the names of Tommy Douglas and J.S. Woodsworth to divert you… good honest men who wanted to improve conditions for blue collar workers and farmers… but do not be fooled… they are not for these people anymore… these people are the eggs that must be broken to make their socialist/marxist/communist omelet…

Horwath’s only experience in the private sector was that as a part time waitress when she was in university. After that she worker with the Hamilton labor movement, she got involved with the co-operative housing movement in Welland and became a community development coordinator in Hamilton. She is a classic far left socialist. She has no business experience at all yet she has the gall to criticise Ford concerning his business acumen. It is a small wonder she defends the Marxist candidates who want to share misery equally, unless of course you are a party member, in which case you can belly up to the public trough.

Harden is obviously not educable.

The NDP are Marxists.

Harden, pack your bags and get your butt over to Venezuela, we’ll check in with you a year from now to see how healthy you are. What an idiot!!
commented 2018-06-05 21:08:07 -0400
NDP suffer from backwards-brain
commented 2018-06-05 20:19:33 -0400
Anybody that believes in Socialism are one of the many fools, who actually believed the Marxist scum who run our educational system. Collective this, collective that, gang mentality. Bang Bang your dead and that just for thinking and having an idea, an idea that you can turn into a product that will make you independent.

Those that love Venezuela so much should be shipped there because we certainly don’t want those idiots here.
