RADICAL RIFKIN: The Far-Left Extremist Influencing Justin Trudeau’s National Energy Policies

As noted by Terence Corcoran in the Financial Post, Rifkin was invited by Jim Carr as a top “intellectual” to discuss “Pan-Canada” energy.

Said Corcoran, a previous voice being listened to by the Trudeau government on energy was Dominic Barton, but “With his fixation on the need for more corporate social responsibility, Barton these days probably seems a little too moderate for Prime Minister Trudeau’s principal secretary, Gerald Butts, and other Liberal insiders with more radical agendas. They want it darker. Never mind re-imagining capitalism; what we need is post-capitalism, an end to capitalism, zero carbon, zero oil and zero gas. Zero capitalism.”

    Sounds like Venezuela to me. They forgot to mention “Zero Food,” though.

      And zero freedom.

      Heh, that’s where it always inevitably ends up. Every. F.ck’n. Time.

      This is why any follower of this damned idiology must be locked up – for their end goal is always the murder of their fellow man.

    If they can achieve that we will all freeze to death in the dark. Without economic freedom there is no freedom at all and if they think they are going to get rid of capitalism – people voluntarily trading their goods and services for mutual benefit – I have my rifle and I have my ammo and it will be time to start shooting the bastards. If it’s going to happen it had better happen soon because I am getting old and I really don’t want to have to hand the problem over to my children to solve.

    • Bla Bla

      Well said – what really sucks is the looney toons that inhabit all major population centers believing the tripe that these elites put out. It’s like no one has the ability to think anymore and just follow blindly whatever the ‘cool’ people say.

    I have only one question: how long are Canadians going to endure this endless pot party? (Reality check: 24 months to the next election is way too long)

    • Bla Bla

      24 months is plenty time for the traitorous buffoons to bring us to our knees.

      • Waffle

        You’re still standing? I’ve been on my knees praying for a miracle like a meteor, for example, just a little teeny one that might strike the Langevin block or 24 Sussex. That’s not too much to ask, is it?

        • Bla Bla


          not at all

  • Old Guy

    What’s the real problem?

    Well, it’s not Trudeau and his band of merry left-tards. Nope, the problem is on the political right. Conservatives are and have failed miserably.

    What we need is leadership and messaging from Conservatives that promotes:

    ● Economic Nationalism
    ● Smaller Government
    ● Lower Transfer Payments
    ● Fewer Provincial Trade Barriers
    ● Fewer Regulatory Regimes
    ● Lower Taxes

    Are these just buzz words? Or, would this create thousands of jos across the country and increase the income of the middle-class?

    So my question is, Where is the leadership from the Conservatives? Why do they persist in bashing Trudeau and his Government when there is a far better and more positive argument to made to Canadians to dump the Liberals in the next election?
