Why Borys' resignation is bad for all of us
They had to know that it would turn out badly from the very start.
The trip was sponsored by a group with an obvious agenda, it consisted of a visit to only one front in the conflict, and only one side of the ideological spectrum participated...when you have Peggy Nash as a traveling buddy, you just know your life has taken a very wrong turn.
So the Liberals stuck their finger in the wind, took a gamble that the Canadian populace had signed up en masse for that lobotomy, and came out firmly on the wrong side of moral conscience -- again.
Try as they might to relegate poor Borys to the status of 'crazy aunt in the attic' it's fairly obvious that Borys said what many in the Liberal Party think and the reason they took so long to react is they were waiting for the rest of us to fall in line -- so in tune with the pulse of Canadian values, are they.
Except they couldn't have been more wrong, and once the stalwart confederates of Liberal sympathies (the media) started to publish unfavorable reviews of this stance and public opinion showed we were none too pleased with this blatant capitulation, only then did the mouthpieces issue statements chiding Borys' unfortunate choice of phrasing.
So they bullied him into silence once they realized that popular opinion wasn't coming along for the ride.
Anyone who thinks this is a good thing should carefully consider what we would do if the Liberal party got good at hiding its true face. If they manage to silence the Borys' of the party how will we, the poor shlubs of the voting public, ever see through the thick facade they have built to mask their distasteful ideological inclinations -- or lack thereof?
Having Borys spout off about what he really thinks, and watching his compatriots wait to gauge public reaction before picking a side has given us a rare glimpse at just how far down the rabbit hole the Liberal Party of Canada has gone. Having the Liberals exposed for what they really are makes the choice on election day that much easier. If the Liberal party manages to purge their ranks of all the loose-lipped morons, we may never know what they're really thinking. Lucky for us, they are so far gone, that may never happen.

Thank you for that insight. Just think, the Liberals have a hidden agenda. Behind the fake pro Israeli facade, they are a bunch of Hezbollah loving, anti- Israeli, Jew-hating surrender monkeys. I hope the Jewish community and all liberal pro Israeli types remember this when the next federal election rolls around. By the way, where were Carolyn Bennett and Ken Dryden when the Israelis and the Jews were being hammered by Liberal Jew haters? I believe they were testing the polls before taking a principled stand in favour of Israel and the Jewish community. Carolyn only opposed Boris Nazarralah yesterday and we have yet to hear from hockey puck Ken, whom I recall represents a large Jewish constituency. Shame on you, all you anti-semitic Liberals!

Drinking the Kool Aid, Ezra?
Re: United Church back in balance (Ezra Levant, Aug. 22).
Poor old Ezra Levant has been drinking the Kool Aid again and believing his own blarney. I appreciate Ezra is a good foot soldier in the defence of Israel but must he tell whoppers that nobody with a modicum of knowledge of Middle East politics would believe?
Take for example his assertion that when Israel pulled out of Gaza they were "effectively granting Palestinians their own country." Such balderdash serves no purpose but to deliberately mislead Canadians on the situation surrounding the Gaza strip. Gaza is a tiny stretch of land about 14 miles long and a few miles wide. Packed into this tiny enclave are close to a million Palestinians, forcibly confined there by Israel for the past 39 years.
They are prohibited from having an airport, seaport or from travelling outside this tiny enclave by Israeli Defence Forces. Consequently, they have no ability to develop an economy, no ability to import raw materials and no ability to trade goods and services. How on earth does this constitute a sovereign nation?
I am proud of CUPE members in Ontario for having the guts to expose the plight of innocent men, women and children in the occupied territories. And I'm delighted the United Church followed through with their boycott of Israeli companies who profit from the shameful occupation. Ezra Levant can try spinning it all he likes, the fact remains: Canada's largest Protestant church has condemned Israel's occupation of Palestine.
President, CUPE Ontario
(Good foot soldier is right.) -Winnipeg Sun
Everytime one of those union assholes opens their mouths scarey stuff starts falling out. Sid really believes that Israel should cease to exist, and turn their country over to the Hamas terrorist.
I would also like to remind Sid Ryan that cupe memebers have no choice but to support the whims of the hierarchy of the union shops. Unions and terrorist organizations have much in common;hence the love for each other. I have worked union shops, and I know if you go against the union and its solcialist agenda, you are out of job, or accidently on purpose suffer a work related injury.

United Church member. President of a Marxist union.
And so it shall come to pass where the wolf will dress itself up in sheep's clothing so as to pass itself off as something it is not.
I just paraphrashed that one, but you get the idea.
People with totalitarian leanings try to legitimize themselves by putting on the sheep's clothing ... and telling all it is the job of the state to dispense compassion, rather than the duty of an individual.
Continue to shine the light of truth on him and pretty soon his true utopian nature will be exposed.

"I am proud of CUPE members in Ontario for having the guts to expose the plight of innocent men, women and children in the occupied territories."
That's an odd statement. The middle east has a deplorable record on worker's rights, yet not a word about this from the Worker's Representative, CUPE President, Mr. Ryan.
Why is that?

There is and never has been a Palestinian "homeland" - the arabs who occupied areas of the Ottoman Empire under the control of Turkey, came mostly from Egypt. Great Britain created an enclave for wandering arabs, and later the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan as a reward
for Bedouin support in the WWI campaign against Turkey and Germany. But Palestinians could have been absorbed into the Israeli economy which was
discussed many times after 1948. Arafat, an Egyptian and not a Bedouin ruined all hope of compromise when he intoduced contrived terrorism,
at the same time stealing all the monies provided
to the enclave. Arafat should have been killed just after the Munich Games Massacre. MacLeod

A historical note.
When the Romans put down the Jewish rebellions and dispersed the rebels throughout the rest of the world, they renamed the area Palestine.
They did so, naming the province after the Phillistines, one of the tribes most hated by Jews in the hope that the name itself would repulse them so they would never again return.
A matter of historical fact.

Well Ezra, the Shotgun has the attention of Sid Ryan the commie leader of the CUPE union.
That is a plus in my view.
The Western Standard and Shotgun are gaining ground in the struggle to free Canadians from the leftist onslaught that has engulfed the country for a half century of union and mainstream media leftist liberal propaganda.

Let me get this straight. Israel is the most liberal, tolerant, progressive and democratic state in the Middle East. In fact, Israel is the ONLY liberal, tolerant, progressive and democratic state in the Middle East. Hezbollah's avowed aim is to destroy this singular LIBERAL, TOLERANT, PROGRESSIVE and DEMOCRATIC Middle Eastern state. Peggy, Boris, Sid, et al, putative LIBERAL!!!, TOLERANT!!! PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS!!!, would have us turn our backs on Israel and support Hezbollah. I can't begin to comprehend the amount of mental health intervention these people need.

Start with PLENTY ... and work your way from there.
No conscience, no morality, no sense of right and wrong.
Sounds like sociopathic behavior to me.

The United Church of Canada is way off in Left field and it is anything but "United". Syd Ryan will have no trouble finding a comfortable pew in that church at present. He can't rely on the United Church for the sheep's clothing, they've been outed.
Workers are forced to belong to unions but they can't be forced to vote a certain way and are more and more showing independent thought refusing to obey the "Master" twit-heads. They now wield as much power as a fart in a windstorm. They just don't know it yet.

I remember years ago, when I was a mere tadpole, working in a union shop, and a percentage of our union dues had to go to support the ndp party. I remember thinking at the time it was wrong to take money from workers to support any political party. I remember getting my ass reamed out for speaking about this at a union meeting. I was a tadpole then, and was easily dismissed and bullied to shut up. I have grown to be a barracuda, and I would bite their heads off if given the opportunity to do so.

I am just laughing at the thought of Sid Ryan, and his bunch of union thugs trying to establish a union in Muzziland. Would the women be allowed to wear thier burqa'a under their welding face shields? Wouldn't that be a safety issue? They couldn't take them off, that would just provoke the male members in their family to have to beat them to death, when they arrive home after a hard day at work. Sid you are going to have all kinds of fun trying to merge your union with islam.
Posted by: Honey Pot | 2006-08-24 2:29:24 PM
Bang on, Honey Pot. No one should be required as a condition of employment to donate money to a particular political party. It's just not acceptable.
And it is darkly absurd that the party who (they never stop telling us) promote women's equality and gay rights and so on would support those who are committed to oppressing those groups.

When Christ was dying on the cross and uttered these words.
"Father forgive them, for they know not what they do"
He was talking to the Syd's ilk.
Personally, I don't forgive them.

I cannot figure out these dipshit Liberals. They are against any military action in the middle east.They believe in dialogue.Then when one of thier own suggests that talking with the terrorists is a good idea,they hang his ass out to dry. I almost expect Ujjal and Graham to come out and say they have supported Harper all along.

This problem is no unique to us in Canada, for when one follows the situation throughout the West, the Left acts the same and has pretty much the same agenda. For any kind of conflict, their answer is always "let's sit down and talk this through", which has a nil success rate when it comes to real conflict. Their philosophy on serious crime is much the same: opposed to punishment, against the death penalty no matter what, etc. Clearly the evidence for the last 30 years or more prove that this results in more crime. Again they are very concerned about the rights of criminals but not the victimes, and in the case of the present war they are more concerned about perceived mistreatment of terrorists than the fate of the victimes. The American Demos are a prime example. They get all in a huff at the idea that terrorists, caught red-handed on the battle field, are humilitated in prison, while the terrorists hold no such value. In fact the terrorists hide behind and among civilians as standard practice knowing how the weak-kneeded Leftists will react should we still go after them. Oh yes, the Leftists are full of compassion, but due to a lack of a moral compass misplaced compassion. They show cruelty to the victimes and compassion to the thugs.
Even though it is the same problem throughout the free West, if we are to deal with it, each country must do it on its own. One tool we have started to use is to expose them for what they are at every opportunity. Other steps would entail dismanteling their web, such as terminating their policy of multiculturalism, PC, etc. It will not be an easy fight, but if we are to survive, it must be faught.

MINDELLE JACOBS'S Aug. 22 column, "No point in playing nice with Hezbollah" claims NDP MP Peggy Nash (Parkdale High Park), currently on a multiparty fact-finding mission to the Middle East, advocating removal of Hezbollah from Canada's list of terrorist organizations. She did no such thing. The NDP chose to participate in this fact-finding mission to assess first-hand the type of assistance Canada should provide to alleviate the suffering of the Lebanese people. Peggy also hopes to encourage all state and non-state actors in the region to engage in the comprehensive peace process, which she and the NDP have consistently advocated is the only route to lasting peace in this conflict.
Alexa McDonough, MP

Watson:"Holy shit Sherlock! what do you suppose Alexlax is trying to say there?"
Sherlock: "I am sure that Alexlax is stating the obvious. The ndp party support terrorist organizations, and want money to be sent to Lebanon from the Canadian government, to aid the Hezzassholes in purchasing more guns and bombs."
Posted by: Honey Pot | 2006-08-25 6:04:37 AM
Yep, that Alexa is a beauty all right.
Instead of removing Hezb'allah from the terrorist list, how bout doing what the (admittedly toothless) United Nations wants done ... that is, remove Hizb'allah from south Lebanon.
If we wanted to create some mischief, we could start accusing Alexa of undermining the will of the United Nations.
But since we're a classy group, we won't bring up the hypocricy of going against the will of a multinational organization while advocating the collectivization of Canada.
Alexa, your schitzophrenia is showing!

Honey Pot: Things are really going rectal here and rightly so! The Dippers will put EXLAX out of business, every time they speaketh their gospel we all start doing the green apple two-step.
While the likes of Alexa and Peggy et al take the tea and sympathy approach with the scumbag terrorists our soldiers are fighting terrorists in Afghanistan.
The Liberals are just as bad in their state of flux, flying off in all directions trying to catch the wind to blow them back to power. They are desperate and we can expect some strange behaviour including digging up old stories for the MSM to run with.

The recent disgraceful behavior of Alexa in the foreign affairs committee has not been mentioned. She refused to allow the Lebanese people there speak to tell the committee how Canada might be able to help in Lebanon, - she apparently had her own agenda for 'helping' - and it certainly did not include any ideas from the rag tag outfit who had actually BEEN there!. I think the fact finding mission was a result of votes in that committee - the Conservatives were outnumbered and the Dipper/Liberano/Blochead coalition ran the day.
The people (witnesses) there had come to speak to the committee on the tax payers dollar, the witnesses had been approved by the clerk....but Alexis didn't want to hear from people from the devastated country, she wanted to attack the Conservatives, President Bush and Israel for being 'aggressive' - of course the Blocheads and the Liberanos went along with Alexa and the witnesses were never allowed to speak. The message: Alexis like all lefto elitists does not give two hoots and a damn about the 'poor underprivileged people in the world' they care about their agenda to ruin anyone who is independent and successful. Envy is one of the seven deadly sins - so is sloth.
Posted by: jema54j | 2006-08-26 12:18:09 AM
Agreed. Exlax generic, Alexa's behaviour was the worst, even for a Dipper, displayed in memory. She, and the cabal of twits, basically spit in the faces of the Canadians of Lebanese heritage because they would kill the Lefty agenda if allowed to speak.
We should keep talking about the political sleaze played by NDP/Liberal/Blochead coalition on that commitee. They should hang their heads in shame, if they knew what shame was.This should never have been allowed to happen, they should have been hauled up and overruled. That kind of crap does not fit with Canadian sensibilities.
