Batshit Crazy NDP Communists Call For Restructuring Of Capitalism #elxn42

OTTAWA — Just as Tom Mulcair attempts to convince Canadians that the NDP is a safe, moderate choice in the Oct. 19 election, some of his party’s highest profile supporters are issuing a manifesto calling for a radical restructuring of the country’s economy.

The “leap manifesto,” signed by more than 100 actors, musicians, labour unions, aboriginal leaders, environmentalists and other activists, aims to pressure the next federal government to wean Canada entirely off fossil fuels in as little as 20 years and, in the process, upend the capitalist system on which the economy is based.

The drivers of the manifesto are best-selling author Naomi Klein and her husband Avi Lewis. It echoes the theme of Klein’s latest book: “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate,” which was turned into a documentary of the same name, directed by Lewis.

    Hey Leap heads… you each get one vote, just like everyone else.

    • WalterBannon

      in theory…

    • Xavier

      No no no they’re leftists they get as many as they want.

  • WalterBannon

    When they get their wish it will lead to civil war.

    the only good thing about that is it then be legal to lynch them for treason

    • El Martyachi

      Don’t forget about the convenient list they’ve gone and drawn up! That’s a good thing too!

      • Bataviawillem

        Yes, that list might come in handy one of these days.

    • David Murrell

      Come now. Civil war? The conservative right is so weak in this country they cannot even muster 50 people to a peaceful dmonstration.

        I’m not sure conservatives do protests it just doesn’t seem to be their style from what I recalS

    “The “leap manifesto,” signed by more than 100 actors, musicians, labour unions, aboriginal leaders, environmentalists and other activists”

    Funny, I don’t see any nett taxpayers in that list, you know the people that actually pay those leeches.

      Is Colin Mochrie on that list ’cause he’s a hack.

    Avi Lewis has lived in Canada.
    He knows we have winter.
    What a goof.
    What’s going to sustainably keep my house warm in winter when it’s -35C?
    And what’s going to convey me from my city home to a rural workplace 35km away?
    Shall I live at work during the week and come home only on weekends?
    So much about this manifesto is wrong.
    I want a list of signatories.

    • El Martyachi

      Because it needs reposting every once in a while…

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        Thanks for that.
        I didn’t want to watch Avi Lewis but it helps to reinforce that he believes in every anti-American stereotype there is.
        When I tell socialists that in a communist country the people wait for bread and in a capitalist country the bread waits for people they have no response.

        • El Martyachi

          He’s just the vanguard. That worldview is probably the majority now.

      • A classic.

    • He is a pampered twit.

      • k1962

        A silver spoon socialist.

        • David Murrell

          Actually, all of the signees to this Nazi statement are well-to-do zillionaires.

  • simus1

    Genocidists on the march and getting bolder every day.

  • Martin B

    Communist manifestos! Welcoming millions of invading Mohammedans! Keep it up NDP!

    If Canadians have any sense at all, the NDP is doomed, and if not, then Canada is doomed.

  • David Murrell

    What is interesting from this rather scary statement is that the liberal-left elite is becoming very confidentify that Stephen Harper will lose. I also beleve he will lose. So they are lobbying the new government to veer to the hard left.

      Already starting to look for possible places to emigrate too. The pickings are slim. May just have to become a hermit family north of Parry Hoot.
