When I was a kid, we used to play these geography games with my dad, in which we had to either guess the capital of the nation or whether a country was communist or not.
In the 1970’s there was no shortage of communist countries, but one thing we worked out pretty quickly was that if a nation had the words ‘democratic’ in their title – as in, ‘The Democratic Republic of…‘ they were guaranteed to be communist. In hindsight it was my first introduction to the inversion culture of the left, but at the time, it was the one quickfire and 100% reliable way of identifying a communist nation.
The New Democratic Party of Canada (NDP) paint themselves as champions of the poor and marginalized; the voice of the unheard and forgotten. I have watched them support indigenous rights here in Canada and decry the dictatorship that was the Trump presidency. We were repeatedly told that Trump was a dictator seeking to undermine democracy in America.
Then came the Covid pandemic and the lockdowns, and the NDP were suddenly very quiet as both the Federal Liberal and Provincial NDP governments stripped away rights and collapsed local economies in the name of public health.
Both my wife and I lost our jobs due to coercive vaccine mandates, whilst our children were refused access to community services and seated dining. But instead of standing up for our basic right to provide for our family and for our children to be part of society, the NDP supported these measures.
We have had no voice what-so-ever for two years now – no one cared what we thought, or that our rights and access to society were being removed; certainly not the NDP… Then came the truckers.
Simply stated, the truck protests provided us with the only voice we have had in two years. Did the NDP support this grass roots and working class movement to have highly damaging vaccine mandates removed? No, they joined in the vilification of this movement and branded those involved as ‘white nationalists’ and ‘nazis’.
That was their opportunity to defend everything they claim to stand for, but instead they decided to back the liberal elites in their globalist campaign against the working people who have kept this country functioning and fed during the past two years. That tells you who they really are.
Jagmeet Singh looked out of touch in parliament as he desperately clutched to the Trudeau regime’s narrative of a white nationalist insurrection, but even then the NDP were far from done digging up the legacy of Jack Layton.
On Monday night they destroyed any remaining legitimacy and credibility remaining when they voted to support the Trudeau regime’s introduction of martial law for a series of blockades and occupations that had, at that point, already been cleared. The ‘national emergency’ was over, but the NDP still voted to the freeze bank accounts of people who had donated more than $25 to the convoy. Again, they had the chance to stand up for the values they claim to represent and failed, but it is worse than that.
I watched as the Trudeau regime cavalry trampled an indigenous elder with a mobility aid, and naively thought: there’s no way the NDP are going to stand for this – there goes their support. But I was wrong.
This is the party that spent four years telling us that Trump was a dictator and had to be stopped, yet in one vote they became worse than anything they ever accused Trump of. In one vote the NDP shed its diet-Soviet ceremonial ware, and put on the iron shirt of Stalinism. I truly hope and trust the NDP will pay a heavy political price for their involvement in allowing a pharma-fascist police state to be established by a desperate and criminally unskilled PM.
I would also like to know how B.C is going to cling onto Covid restrictions whilst other provinces lift them? Clearly this is not about science, but political science. Is the NDP going to continue to support the Trudeau regime in its attempt to transform Canada into a Covid 19 hermit kingdom whilst the rest of the world returns to functional sanity?
The NDP has grabbed onto a sinking ship and is going down with it. All the smart people know that Trudeau is done. What was in it for them? They carried all the risk of association without any of the political gain. Fools!
The NDP have sold themselves out. How are they going to look people in the eyes and tell them that they represent people rather than power? How are they going to tell anyone that they stand for working Canadians, when they just voted for measures that freeze the accounts of minimum wage earners for having the temerity to stand up and protest against coercive mandates and a war on the non-compliant?
Congratulations! The NDP are done. If they ever try and sell us equality or justice ever again, we will laugh in their face. The public now see the NDP for what they really are; they have finally earned the ironic title ‘Democratic.’
