NDP candidate reveals party stance on Israel… resigns

Morgan Wheeldon, Kings-Hants NDP candidate, resigns over Israel comments


Officially all 3 mainstream parties voice support for Israel at the top level.

I maintain however that within the NDP and Liberal parties that support is an inch deep at best.

    I think Tom really does support Israel but the party on the other hand is a wild card.

    • Alain

      Perhaps he does on a personal level but he is far outnumbered. As for the Liberals I cannot ever recall them supporting Israel. Oh, like Mulcair they mouthed the words, but their actions and deeds were the opposite. It comes down to both being leftist parties, and the Left will never support Jews be they Israeli or other nationalities.

    • I am inclined to agree but the majority rank and file do not.

      • jayme

        That is what is so odd about Tom he really does not seem like a typical Ndp he is more Liberal while JT seems to me more of a Ndp.

        • Alain

          I think that both parties have become interchangeable, and I would include the Greens.

            nether tom or justine can catch a soccer ball in their teeth like dizzy lizzie can.

          • truepeers

            Quit beavering up the nationalist vote: she doesn’t deserve it!

  • Ron MacDonald

    Here’s another NDP bigot.

  • Jim Horne

    Unless and until the Liberals and NDP come out with a position of unequivicable support for Israel, as the Harper Government has done repeatedly, then you can bet your last dollar that both parties will throw Israel under the bus in a heart beat.

    • David Murrell

      The Liberals and the NDP, like the anti-Semitic Obama administration, support Israel at about one inch deep.

      I admire your ability to be able to even read them or just about anything on the CBC and media party.

    • David

      They do reveal the bizarre 5th column we are facing.

    • Maggat

      Ah, really not enough to gag a maggot, but close.

    • barryjr

      I can’t read the Censorship Bureau of Canada’s comments anymore, it just makes me so mad I start typing profanity laced comments that I have to erase rather than send.

    • jayme

      Many Cbc posters in the past have said we might not like honour killings but we have to respect them

    • ntt1

      if you don’t stop that …you will go blind. CBC comments lead to brain trauma and key board destruction.

  • barryjr

    I’ve read alot of whiny little dippers saying the big mean Conservatives are picking on Mr. Wheeldon , however it wasn’t the Conservatives that kicked him out off their website or made him resign his candidacy. C’mon dippers have the courage to speak the truth.

      Scott Brison is the Liberal MP for Kings-Hants.
      Only he benefits from this.

    It is foolish to assume any progressive party is going to be supportive of Israel/. cultural marxism brooks no religious sentiment at all . The state must be the religion as a result no support for any religious group including Jews in their legitimate homeland.

  • It is no surprise. The sort of knee-jerk Israel-haters who spout out that kind of nonsense are attracted to the NDP or the Liberals.
