What do an idolatrous, pagan worship of the Earth, overzealous infatuation with government and a deeply rooted ire for the Jewish state all have in common? Apparently, these are the mainstays of the Green Party.
Last week, Canada’s Green Party officially adopted the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) against the state of Israel. A move that made already far-left leader Elizabeth May doubt her future with the party.
As a primer, Elizabeth May is the endearing environmentalist who last year, fawning over former-Guantanamo detainee terrorist, Omar Khadr, at a Parliamentary Press Gallery’s dinner, said; “Omar Khadr, you’ve got more class than the whole f****ing [Conservative Party] cabinet”.
Transposing her progressive platitudes to Twitter last month, May downright denied that any of ISIS’s actions towards religious and ethnic minorities are genocide.
Needless to say, (in Green terms) the current Green Party leader is one banana short of a bunch. And yet, even she is not far left enough for the current party base.
Then, of course, we have Monika Schaefer. The Green Party finally had to disavow the party candidate after she released a virulently anti-Semitic YouTube video, referring to the Holocaust as “the most persistent lie in all of history.”
Proving that Canadians really are the nice ones, in America, the Green Party somehow manages to be even more of a moral hernia.
Party leader, Jill Stein, openly backs the boycott movement against Israel. Her running mate, Ajamu Baraka, co-authored an essay volume edited by a known Holocaust denier and 9/11 conspiracy theorist. You can’t make this stuff up.
It’s certainly no surprise that in David Wnendt’s 2015 comedy Look Who’s Back, when Adolf Hitler was reanimated into present-day Germany, he was a supporter of the national Green Party.
If you think this lunacy is fenced in by the grassy green hedge of the Green Party, think again. While true that the likes of Jill Stein or Elizabeth May will sooner be managing a local Starbucks than the nation, their parties offer a glimpse of the mainstream left’s future.
Just look at this year’s Democratic National Convention (DNC). There was a Palestinian flag being waved in the supposed progressive audience! And meanwhile, the Israeli flag was progressivelybeing lit on fire.
Liberals wanted to
have a conversation ban and censor the Confederate Flag following the Charleston massacre last year. Okay, well what about a conversation regarding the Palestinian flag after American citizens like Taylor Force or Hallel-Yaffa Ariel were murdered by Palestinian terrorists? (Picture the outrage at CNN had Confederate Flags been flying high at the RNC.)
The left has hand-picked the one country in the ENTIRE Middle-East that upholds the values they deem to espouse and decided to undermine its very existence. They see Israel as a microcosm of America and hence seek to weaken and demoralize it.
Israel supports global agreements on climate change and has invested heavily in greenhouse gas reductions. What has Saudi Arabia done again? One would think the Green Party ought to be fawning over Israel’s green initiatives.
The whole raison d’être of the Green Party should be to push for further government regulation over the environment, and adoption of renewable energy sources like nuclear (which the Greens inanely oppose), while taking pragmatic centrist positions on key issues.
Hijacked by the left-wing crazies, today’s Greens are legitimately indistinguishable from the Communists. I suppose it’s “Better green than inhaling chlorine”?
It’s been correctly said that under Trump’s tutelage, the GOP’s flirtations with quasi-conservatism through populist policies like trade protectionism will linger past the 2016 election.
More salient, however, is the trajectory of the mainstream left.
As the BernieBros grassroots movement puts Jill Stein at its helm, the Marxist maniacs march towards the Democrat Party gates in Che Guevara t-shirts. Burning Israeli and American flags as they go, leftists ironically stomp over any semblance of American exceptionalism – the very thing that’s stopping the government from tossing them behind bars for flag burning.
Unless our mainstream liberal parties cease pandering to those antithetical to Americanism and steer clear from the likes of the UK Labor Party, their future is bleaker than Venezuela’s grocery stores.
