NDP’s Andrew Cash conflicts with party leader Mulcair by endorsing antisemitic boycott of Israel

The New Democratic Party of Canada has a Jewish Problem.

It has a leader who is sympathetic to Israel as the only liberal democracy in the Middle East.

But in that view, Thomas Mulcair stands virtually alone in his party. Almost all the rest of his caucus don’t like Jews at all.


 

Mulcair is betting on the Niqab, that’s the future he envisions for Canada.

      If you are a ‘journalist’, and you support the wrong side, bad things happen.

    Gee, when the NDP and Lieberals form their coalition, maybe they can get the NDP member who doesn’t know what concentration camps are, together with the Liberal member who doesn’t believe in 9/11 and form a government policy that blames Jews for WW2. The united church would support it.

    • mobuyus

      The liberals had a defense minister john macalom that did not understand the difference between Vichy and Vimy. And they’ve still got the idiot clanging around.

    Ah the advantages of sitting high on the totem pole. Well done, Mr. Cash. Well done.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Wasn’t Andrew Cash a second-string Canadian recording artist at one time? His name rings a distant bell…

    • JoKeR

      He got made a lot of money writing music for the CBC.

      But hey, international socialist / national socialist, nazi schmatzy. It’s six of one or half a dozen of the other.

      He’s a musician! Who could be better qualified to be the Minister of Foreign Affairs under an NDP government?

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      I think he fancied himself a homegrown Billy Bragg.

      L’etranger was his first band. I saw them in the early 80’s at The Kent hotel in Waterloo and boy they sucked. Trying hard to emulate The Clash and failing miserably. Really dour and preachy shit….So things haven’t changed that much.

    Andrew Cash is welcome to boycott Israel and Israeli products – however, he’s a hypocrite if he uses a Microsoft/Intel equipped pc, a smartphone, antivirus software, a USB memory stick or instant messaging software.

    • Non-interventionism

      I thought there were plenty of other workers on each of those products and they were done in Silicon Valley and Taiwan, so the people were from many different nationalities and creed and races. It seems to me your reasoning does not hold water. You can be Jewish and oppose the way the Israeli government has been acting. They are too aggressive and they believe very much in playing the victim, while at the same time thinking they are high, mighty and somehow moral which has always been laughable because Israel just carries out the US imperialist agenda in Mideast. The proof is the US giving Israel weapons, while opposing them on the settlements and the lack of a two state solution. The fact is all three mainstream parties in Canada support Israel, support a two solution, and yet oppose any criticism of Israel due to fear of bad press. People need to demand an independent foreign policy, no support for other nations over our own, no exporting of our foreign policy, real discussions on war, and finally Canada needs to end the wars now and support our veterans.

        The only ones opposed to a 2 state solution, is the Palestinians. Time and time again they have proven this, and so long as they back a Unity government with Hamas…. all bets are off.

        • marty_p

          Well said. Negotiation is the art of compromise. Israel offered to fulfill >93% of the Palestinian demands and Arafat walked away from the table. So which group isn’t interested in peaceful coexistence?

        • Clausewitz

          Palestinians have never missed a chance to miss a chance when it comes to Middle East Peace.

      • mobuyus

        The Israeli’s are to aggressive in their defense of their nation? Fuck off islamic spy, stooge or whatever the fuck kind of loser you are and go back to your fly blown septic shithole.

      • Surele Surele

        Please explain how you can be too aggressive when protecting your very existence from an organization bent on your destruction and wiping you out from the map? And how do you ‘play’ the victim while being bombed almost daily? How much more patient can you be? Arabs (Palestinians) had plenty of opportunity to have their own country for the first time since they decided to have a ‘national identity’, and rejected it violently each and every time.

        • David

          It be passing strange that the only uptick on his comment is you.

          • Surele Surele

            ooops. my hands were shaking. did not notice. thanks for pointing it out. let me rectify.

      • David

        billiy bob, you changed your name

        “You thought …” no, you did not. And your ignorance has been cultivated.

        Cheers

      • Clausewitz

        Funny that Palestinians have more rights in Israel than they do in any of the Muslim shit holes in the Middle East. Why don’t you ride your magic carpet over to the nearest Muslim Paradise of your choosing and get back to us.

    Andrew Cash was insufferable when he was a Socialist garbage spewing musician, performing his dirges alongside the equally insufferable (and current party mate) Charlie (‘Chuck’) Angus.

    It make me laugh that Andrew has always worn the uniform of the movement, even as he rails against conformity…from his plowmans hat and ‘poor boy’ overalls, to his current affectation of the bookish look of Tommy Douglas, he has spent the better part of his adult life dancing a demented jig to the tune of International Bolshevism.

    • Justin St.Denis

      I suspected that Cash had a musical background. I imagine he sucked at music as well. Now he sucks at politics. Something tells me he must suck at life and living.

      • JoKeR

        Only Jack would know, and he’s not talking anymore.

        • Yo Mama

          Jack would know what? That Cash sucks?

          • Observer

            And probably from personal experience.

        • mobuyus

          Apparently his corpse speaks to the true believers through bolivia chow and Anne Magrath.

    We have, what I call, stupid Jews with NDP signs in my riding. Not only that, the NDP candidate is a Jew, one with a degree in Women’s Studies. I only wish she would come knock on my door.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Come and knock on our door
      We’ve been waiting for you
      Where the kisses are hers and hers and his,
      Three’s company too.

    • Clausewitz

      Any degree with the word “Studies” in it is only good for wiping your ass.

      • k1962

        Some of her minions came to my door today, but with their kid who was sweet and told me he liked my home. So, I had to be nice unfortunately 🙁

    Jack Layton was close to the Arar’s , Jack used Maher’s wife to run for the NDP in the Ottawa seat with the jew-hating por-sharia Muslim/Arab population for the votes.
    Arar’s wife is pro-hamas and I found a website in Canada where it promoted Alexa McDonough as being at the Pro-hamas rallies in Ottawa with Maher Arar’s wife .
    The NDP has a shared hatred for Jews with the islamists because CAIR Canada has defended almost very alleged and convicted terrorist in Canada including the Toronto-18 , this also explains the Public sector Unions using out tax dollars to take days off work with pay to pad the Anti-israel rallies .
    The bigots are more educated today and hide behind the posters where they pretend to object to israel’s treatment for Palestinians and the foreign policy.

    The PRIDE parade pretty well links all the jew-haters since very few groups or Corporations protested the the pro-hamas QuAIA and other queer’s backing palestine where we know the hamas brutally murder gays in Gaza .
