Milke: The same old NDP in new guise

New Democrat leader Thomas Mulcair would like to be prime minister. In his quest for government power which would then allow for institutional control over the private economy, the NDP leader is trying hard to convince voters that his party is not your grandfather’s NDP.

That is, the new NDP is ostensibly shorn of its radical past.

  • In support of author’s points, here is Linda McQuaig at last summer’s tranny parade in Toronto. Next to her is another NDP wacko who runs for MP in our part of town (Jennifer Hollett).

      Of course she showed up to the Pride parade wearing a drab, depressing trench coat.

      Way to read the people, Linda!!

      Stupid socialist…..

    • barryjr

      WTF is she on, she’s stoned here.

  • Waffle

    Linda looks pretty damn good for 64.

    • David

      I don’t think so.

      • Waffle

        Granted, she’s not the prettiest flower in the garden, but when you get up there you’ll appreciate the advantages of having a silver spoon to keep the bags and wrinkles at bay. Oh, and having a really good hairdresser helps immensely.

        • David

          Yikes. Is that what the denizens of this blog aspire to? I know some champagne socialists who think they will never have to deal with the shit they want to foist on hard working Canadians. Enjoy your silver spoon but just remember, like the french and the bolsheviks, your the first ones to lose your head.

          I’m 65 years old.

    “Not your grandfather’s NDP” – back in the day, our riding was CCF (H W Herridge, or “Bert” Herridge as he was always referred to.) Orchardist from Nakusp. My mother repeated a story he told: he visited his mother just before an election, at which time she said she wasn’t going to vote in the upcoming election. Her friend, present at the tea party, said in that case she wouldn’t bother voting either. So Mrs. Herridge Sr turned to her son and said something to the effect of “I’ve just won you two more votes”.

    Never did figure out quite how Mr Herridge landed with the CCF, given he was a landowner and all that. But everyone respected him.

    • Well, apart from the fact that the CCF initially supported Hitler’s National Socialists until they got word from their Soviet controllers — it’s historical record. But I won’t go there.

      The fact is that Jack Layton introduced the idea during the NDP party convention to change the constitution of the NDP — Layton offered the opportunity to change it to “Social Democratic” (akin to the Democratic Party in the U.S.) but it was overwhelmingly rejected. Layton even considered changing the name. Instead, the NDP choose to stick with “Democratic Socialism”, basically a Marxist-Leninist party seeking to seize absolute power democratically, through long-term deception (vis-a-vis violent revolution). As I’ve stated before, Tom Mulcair is a liar. Don’t worry, he can’t sue me for slander because I will win — the facts are 100% on my side. The NDP hasn’t changed a bit.

  • I know I should know who she is and everything, but this is the only thing I’ve ever been able to think when I hear her name:

  • mauser 98

    ………..oohh.. the poor.. the downtrodden..McQuaig
    “The beautiful Oakville, Ont., home she sold in 2000 for $1,050,000 is situated on a 1.4 acres of property.”
    “McQuaig’s old house just re-sold with a listing price of $4,795,000.”
    yeah .. ok from rabble.. sorry

    • BillyHW

      She sounds a lot like the 1%.

      • WalterBannon
