WATCH: A question from The Rebel unleashes "Angry Tom" Mulcair!

Brian LilleyArchive

During last night's debate, Thomas Mulcair said the NDP supports deployment of Canadian troops only "if there is a UN mandate."

I asked Mulcair to clarify his position in the post-debate scrum, and I got a curt, snarky non-answer.

His handlers have been trying to tamp down Muclair's "Angry Tom" side, but viewers caught a glimpse of it last night!

Later, I got some clarification about the policy from NDP operatives.

Regardless, why should Canada feel obligated to seek approval rom UN dictators and kleptocracts before deciding how and where to deploy its own military?


Thomas Mulcair wants to be PM, but he holds dual citizenship.

Hmmm, so Tom bows to the legitimacy of the muslim controlled U.N.? Not what I’d want in a PM—-we should be out of that corrupt sham of an organization.

Jimmy: Furthermore unlike yourself Mr. Mulcair chose to accept the question from Brian but when he realised he could not answer is when he became dismissive proving it was not Brian but the question he asked that he could not address with exposing the flaw in his criticizing Harper.

It says something about a person’s character when one has to use vulgar words to get their point across. Please stop.

Jimmy da Silva, speaking of blathering, please get off your soap box and stop ‘your blathering’. The Rebel Media attracts a like minded group of people, which you don’t belong to. So, please do us a favor and find another blog or vlog, because all you’re doing is wasting space here and generally annoying people with your comments. If Ezra annoys you so much, then by all means, you’re quite welcome to find another site that’s more in line with your slightly twisted thinking. I can’t understand why you would torture yourself so, because of Ezra. The WWW is an incredibly vast source of information, and has an endless variety of social communities as well. I hope you can find happiness in one of these communities.

Jimmy: I will say it again it wasn’t so much a matter of not having to answer the question. He could not answer the question without exposing his own hypocrisy. It is also understandable for someone like you to have the attitude he doesn’t owe them anything but not for someone who is the leader of the opposition, hoping to become Prime Minister who criticizes Harper for not being inclusive enough. Besides I think Brian’s credentials speak for himself being a writer for The Toronto Sun and having covered politics for over 10 years on talk radio in several major cities. But I realize nothing anyone says here will make a difference when you simply choose to be dismissive. That’s fine but we expect more from our politicians, not ( don’t you know who I am)?
commented 2015-08-08 21:32:50 -0400
Good job, Brian. Mulcair is a shrill, intolerant left-wing bigot. It’s good to see a reminder once in a while. Everybody’s not a progressive ’bot.

The vast majority of stories that Ezra posts on The Rebel – have huge holes in them. It doesn’t take much to quickly find that out when you do some digging on whatever Ezra is blathering about.

Or there is Ezra’s posts where he is hoping that he can generate a scandal – but typically no one else gives a shit about it and thus Ezra’s dream for a Canadian uprising go unfulfilled. Like the ridiculous Tim Hortons boycott. Ezra is the king of spin and agenda.

You obviously don’t know the difference between an agenda and just leaning right or left. Because there is a difference. Agenda typically includes propaganda and information which is often not factual. That is the business that Ezra is in. The Toronto Sun (right) and The Toronto Star (left) are not in that business.

As for your Rob Ford comment – absolutely that was news. In fact, it made major American newspaper headlines. If you are a mayor in a major city and making promises to that city about how you are going to change your life and be healthy – meanwhile you are stuffing your face at KFC – that is absolutely front page news and I am so glad that The Toronto Star among others took Rob Ford down. Mayor McCheese is more qualified to be mayor over Rob Ford and his fucktard brother.
commented 2015-08-08 19:16:32 -0400

I said it before and I will say it again – The Rebel is nothing. They are not owed anything and no one is obligated to respond to any questions that come from The Rebel. You could buy a camera and a microphone – but that doesn’t make you a legitimate media/news source.

And I would say the same thing for someone who is liberal and who started a website out of their living room.

Pay your fucking dues, break some REAL major news that don’t involve dipshit Alberta “scandals” and maybe people will take The Rebel seriously.

naaaaaa! tell him to keep his french citizenship and to stay in France! Not a Socialist government in Canada! naaaaaaa! please! They absolutely demolish family values, spend like hell, cater the tiny minorities, ignore unions and workers’ rights…. people obviously forgot or don’t know the mess Bob Rae made in ONtario!
commented 2015-08-08 16:43:32 -0400
I was shock too when I heard Mulcair saying that Canada need a madate from the United Nations before taking action on our security. He is a dangerous man. Thanks Brian for pointing this out.
commented 2015-08-08 15:43:56 -0400
Jimmy: what’s wrong with being agenda based? You said you’d give Ezra credit for something when it’s not agenda based or attention seeking. This story is agenda based, but he’s still right about it. I’m kinda drawing a blank when trying to think of a recent political story put out by the MSM that isn’t agenda based, and the agenda is pro-Trudeau or sometimes Mulcair. Anti-Harper is more accurate. The point is that I’m calling you out on that. It shouldn’t matter if it’s agenda based or not, right is right. When the Star led with Rob Ford’s KFC run for 3 days straight, 3 days that had armed robberies, other actual political scandals, and even odd weather that could have led, but it was all Fat Ford, All The Time! was that real news? You undoubtedly thought it was. Same when robocalls was a Conservative scandal and the CBC had hundreds of headlines, but it only warranted one (1) small story, in the politics section, for about 6 hours when it turned out to be something else. That wasn’t agenda based, according to you, was it?
Also, you mentioned twice now that theRebel has to “pay their dues”. You have no idea what you’re talking about, in at least two ways. Firstly; what do you mean by that? Do you mean they have to start publishing the same stories, with the same bias, as the other media sources? They have to start rip – and – reading CP stories with no local input, like CTV and Global? They have to start focusing more on Duffy and Wallin, and less on Harb? If theRebel starts doing that, will those who wish to be our Prime Minister start actually responding to their questions? Secondly; says who? Since when does someone have to be a member of some established media source in order to be recognized by someone who wants my vote? I’m not a member of the media any more, but let me tell you if I had a question for any politician and happened to be within asking distance, I’m asking. And if that politician thought that I wasn’t qualified, in some way to ask a question then that politician does not deserve my vote or anyone elses’. They aren’t here for the media, at least they aren’t supposed to be. They’re supposed to be here for us. And to ignore the only real right wing media source in a country that votes at least 30 percent (at the absolute, bare minimum) right wing in the worst of times is just stupid. I know that in your rose coloured world nobody votes right wing, but in reality there are quite a few of us and to hear any politician dismiss the only media source that reports our point of view is stupidly exclusive at best, and simply snobby at worst.

So French Tom would have Canada bow down to the UN like his butt buddy Obama. What would you expect from a French citizen trying to lead Canada.
commented 2015-08-08 14:12:29 -0400
Jimmy the point of this posting demonstrated that although Mulcair didn’t mind criticizing Harper for nor getting the United Nations approval his denouncement of Brian Lillley seeking clarification was simply because he did not or could not provide an instance when he would not require United nations approval. Of course not because then Brian could have quickly added so why is it OK for you but not him? But when you get into saying Mulcair should have just told him to F off and then start deriding the people here about a circle jerk, in my opinion this is dodging the topic at hand.
commented 2015-08-08 13:43:13 -0400
So, Tom Mulcair’s NDP, if elected, will adopt the same policy that, with the intelligence reports of WMDs and the harbouring and state sponsorship of terrorists, determined that he USA would invade Iraq: repeated violations of UN mandates, knowing that the UN wouldn’t take any action (he didn’t bargain on the US doing so).
I thought part of basic NDP policy was to dislike and vilify all Americans, especially American Republicans, and to hate George W. Bush?
Tom seems to be saying that he will follow W’s lead. So which NDP principle do we believe? Any of them? or only the really flaky sounding ones?
commented 2015-08-08 13:10:59 -0400

All of my arguments are legitimate. Same goes for Terry. When Ezra is right about something and it’s not agenda based or attention seeking, I would be more than happy to give him credit. I would love it if he dropped his schtick and just focused on being a real journalist.
commented 2015-08-08 12:52:08 -0400
Too funny. Of course I know what a circle jerk is. I was liberal in my younger years so I know most of the “cool” catch phrases and I understand what sarcasm and irony is. I also know people tend to become abusive when they have run out of intelligent debate.
commented 2015-08-08 12:27:28 -0400
Jimmy: Of course I know what a circle jerk is lol And I did not say that is what I wanted to see what I said is I would prefer to see a circle jerk as opposed to seeing a square (you) jerk. You seem you only want to be argumentative for the sake of being argumentative. If you had legitimate arguments I would glad to entertain but your conduct is predictably boring. If Ezra said it was a nice day outside you would say it is terrible outside. OK we get it you don’t like Ezra now please add something of substance and I hope I’m not insulting what little intelligence you do have.
commented 2015-08-08 12:14:03 -0400
Yes this is a very dangerous position most of the UN is made up of Rogues and Human Rights abusers, Canada cannot afford to have the UN even advising our Military let alone managing it!

Here is another eyeful I was exposed to this morning remember Trudeau calling for Canada to have closer ties to America during the Maclean`s Political debate:
US General Calls For Obama’s Immediate Arrest ‘Treasonous Activities’
PrissyHolly 07/07/2015
Although anyone with half a functioning brain cell can see that Obama is a domestic threat to the United States of America, it’s always refreshing when a high-ranking member of the military agrees, and uses their platform to speak out Obama’s treasonous activities.

In a radio interview with The Real Side, Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Paul E. Vallely stated that Obama should be immediately “arrested for treasonous activities,” stating above anything else that he should be held accountable for his continual pandering to the Muslim Brotherhood, in particular his shady actions surrounding the Benghazi scandal.

Do you know what a circle jerk is? You might want to look that up. Is that really want you want here?
commented 2015-08-08 09:54:13 -0400

I have a great life – which affords me the time to inform and educate ignorant people like you here.
commented 2015-08-08 09:46:51 -0400
As David Frum stated :“But I want to stress: Canada’s achievement overcoming Trudeau’s disastrous legacy should not inure Canadians to how disastrous that legacy was. Three subsequent important prime ministers – Brian Mulroney, Jean Chretien and Stephen Harper – invested their energies cleaning up the wreckage left by Pierre Trudeau. The work has taken almost 30 years. Finally and at long last, nobody speculates any more about Canada defaulting on its debt, or splitting apart, or being isolated from all its major allies.”

If you are too young to remember this then you had better discover it before we have another leader who prefers “China’s basic communism” or Russia’s say in our decision making……
commented 2015-08-08 09:31:28 -0400
Of course Mulcair wants Russia and China in on our decision making…he is a communist…Margaret Thatcher was clear…Russia was strongly influencing the union control of Britain before she was able to de-fang them…If you look closely you can see how Russian spys are always behind a lot of foreign events and we ignore their influence to our peril…Russian communist influence behind the Left is VERY STRONG though almost invisible…remember Justin’s father’s strong ties with CUBA and CHINA?…AGAIN THE RUSSIAN-COMMUNIST INFLUENCE. Those who love the U.N. are, perhaps inadvertently pro Russia…

commented 2015-08-08 09:14:06 -0400
Mike Bromley – Tom is just another Jekyll and Hyde. I find him very deceptive, and very creepy. And not to mention he is still a dual citizen of France, and should have to choose before being allowed a chance at being PM. I wonder where his loyalties will really lie, if elected as PM? As it certainly isn’t a with Canadians. It’s all about gaining power and control. I find him pompous and just plain arrogant!
commented 2015-08-08 03:19:12 -0400
Nutbar Notley is going to finish off Alberta after Saudi Arabia and the shale revolution started the wipeout. Little Tommy Mulcucker will finish off Canada in much the same way.
commented 2015-08-08 00:58:52 -0400
Jimmy: That would be right in line with Thomas Mulcair’s inflated ego in case you forgot his “don’t you know who I am” he angrily denounced the cop who pulled him over for running stop signs on Parliament Hill. I’m not sure if I know who Thomas Mulcair is but I am starting to get a good idea and he isn’t even the Prime Minister yet. As I said before Jimmy better a circle jerk than watching a square jerk.
commented 2015-08-07 23:58:22 -0400
Jim, nothing personal, but get a life man.
commented 2015-08-07 23:36:59 -0400
More troubling than Tom’s subcutaneous anger is his on-off supracutaneous smile. Phony, contrived, stimulus-response. Gives me chills.
commented 2015-08-07 21:56:22 -0400

Oh I get it. I was just making the point that The Rebel should be thanking me for the internet ranking. I never said my goal was to bring down The Rebel.
commented 2015-08-07 21:53:45 -0400

The Toronto Sun is conservative and The National Post leans right – but also give a left view as well so readers can make up their own minds. I am quite sure The Rebel isn’t the second coming for conservative media. But again – nobody knows who the The Rebel is and they need to pay their dues. The Rebel is owed NOTHING. In fact, Mulcair would be in his right to tell Brian to go fuck himself the second he identified himself being from “The Rebel”.
commented 2015-08-07 21:46:05 -0400

The Rebel is great for comedy and entertainment – plus someone needs to call out the conservatives here for their bullshit and stop the circle jerk.
