ULTRA LEFT WING SECULAR SOCIALIST NDP SCUM
BC NDP suspends reality: forces women, gay, handicapped and minority candidates on voters


What kind of people do this? Isn’t this what they do in North Korea and Cuba and China? And aren’t they against that?

The NDP tribe in BC sound like far left wing politically-correct fundamentalists and lunatics on crack to me, although to be fair, I’m sure they’re not on crack. I sort of wish they were because it would help explain their insanity.

VICTORIA—The B.C. New Democratic Party has picked 20 ridings that will be reserved exclusively for women or minority candidates in the next May’s provincial election.

The list—which sets aside 15 ridings for women and five for under-represented candidates, such as visible minorities, homosexuals and people with disabilities—is the result of a controversial decision made at the party’s convention last year.

Members voted to set up an affirmative action program to select candidates. The party decided to designate 30 per cent of constituencies not currently represented by a New Democrat for female candidates, and an additional 10 per cent for so-called under-represented groups.

... Each riding will receive an extra $5,000 from the party to help raise the candidate’s profile in the community....

Shame on the NDP To save 15 ridings for female or minority candidates affirms their belief that those candidates couldn't succeed without special consideration. To say the least their motives are suspect,their behavior racist. I hope this pathetic attempt to con the public gets them exactly what they deserve.

Each and every Canadian wants the best candidate to represent them in Ottawa and we don't care what their gender or race is as long as they do the job they were elected to do.

Kudos to "Canadian Cutie" for posting a very polite post. Even though she disagrees with how NDP keeps ridings for minoroities, she was very civilized and very respectful about it. For that, my hat off to you CC.:)

This year, for the Federal election, the Federal Conservative Party appointed a female candidate to the Kamloops riding - effectively knocking out a local candidate who had been planning to compete for the position. This was not even an affirmative action move - this was a complete circumvention of the democratic process - they just appointed her with no consultation of the local members.
At least the provincial NDP were attempting to do something positive - unlike fed. conservatives who were simply trying to curry votes by "forcing" a female candidate upon the poor, unsuspecting citizens of Kamloops (they imported her from another riding).
Should probably have a look around you before you start throwing stones, my friend.

This is important because Obama is just another torqued version of the NDP and Liebrals here in Canuckistan.
Obama on America in Afghanistan: America is “…just air-raiding villages and killing civilians”.


Obama constantly bashes and tears down the American economy—not just the situation but the entire American economic philosophy (and if you can’t take a hint from that, you’re beyond help), and constantly bashes America’s war effort. In the midst of war. While his countrymen are fighting.

That’s some quality judgment right there.

If you want to learn more about this quality of judgment and leadership and this kind of blame us first mentality, and this bash and talk-down your own country and its economy tactic, just visit Jack Layton’s web site, Stephane Dion’s web site, Elizabeth May’s web site, Jill Duceppe’s web site, or the CBC web site.

Meanwhile, sane Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin has slammed Barack Obama for his crass, careless and idiotic remarks about America’s military effort in Afghanistan, in which he said that right now America is, and I quote:“...just air-raiding villages and killing civilians”. She says it disqualified him from being Commander in Chief.

“...Some of his comments that he has made about the war that I think may—in my world – disqualifies someone from consideration as the next commander in chief.”

Hard to disagree with Palin if you’re sane. And similarly, that standard would disqualify all of the above mentioned leftists in Canada from being in charge, here.

And before you Canadian liberals (and even further leftists) get all excited, Obama simply wants to put MORE troops into Afghanistan, so they won’t continue to be “...just air-raiding villages and killing civilians” as he thinks they are now (possibly after their daily chore of building an entire nation from stones and scrap and their noble effort at wiping out a complex web of entrenched, savage, Islamofascist terrorists who were allowed by Obama’s very own Democratic Party’s Clinton Administration to foment there in the 1990s).

Hey Canadian liberals and leftists, I bet you want more troops there now too!

Thanks, Sarah!

NDP candidate:“I like the part in Schindler’s List when the guard starts waxing the prisoners”


Lieberals complained that the candidate for Jack Layton’s you’ve got to be kidding party, Durham, Ontario candidate Andrew McKeever, posted some bad things on his MySpace page.

They say he wrote:

“I like the part in Schindler’s List when the guard starts waxing the prisoners”.

Aside from MySpace, apparently in his FaceBook page (what is this guy—a girl?) he indicates that his political views are “Baathist”, which is the political party of Saddam Hussein. Surely the NDP would OK that since they would have Saddam Hussein in power right now if they had it their way…

But he wrote personal comments to folks like these:

“Answer a direct f**king question you c*nt. I can guarantee, if I ever see you face to face I will make you squeal for the same authority you have such a baseless disdain for.”

And this “tolerant” and “compassionate”“progressive” thing:

“Boyd if I ever see you anywhere in Toronto I will kick the sh*t out of you.”

And on July 18, of this year he wrote:“I can say anything I want on here, as long as it is predicated properly, and avoids some of the more obvious subjects.I can type what I like. I can also (as in this case) copy and save the entire body of this message to cover my ass, should you in fact choose to make an issue out of it. Which you may or may not. I would advise you not to bother.”

Hey I wonder if this is “predicated property”. Huh. Hey I wonder what “predicated property” is! Well anyway, he also wrote:

“You people are f**king knobs. You can censor me as much as you like. I will keep posting. I will not be silenced. And, you will see, with the passage of time of course.that I will prevail. Well, not me per se, but one by one the traitorcriminaldesters will be sent back down south to dance the music.”

Sounds like the NDP and Liberal Party and other lefties who try to wreck this place daily!

And the Liberals complain that he lists his hero as “George W. Bush.”

Now, it’s unclear which of these things Liberals find most offensive or weird, or what exactly put the NDP leader Jack Layton over the top and made his candidate quit. Or whether it was simply the fact that the guy and his opinions were made public.

There’s scant information in the media about this. Both the Toronto Star and the CBC posted the world’s smallest story about it today. No reporters have been heard to ask Jack Layton repeatedly, over and over and over again, if this fella’s views “reflect the values and the policies of the New Democratic Party”, or whether this indicates “a possible hidden agenda” for that party, or if Jack Layton “shares his candidate’s views”. You know, the way they absolutely would have asked Stephen Harper, over, and over, and over…
