I don't like it one bit, it's beyond stupid. I really liked the NDP's platform last election but the Liberal budget that was announced awhile ago sounds great.

I just take issue with people on both sides making sexist and other incendiary remarks and then acting like only NDP supporters stoop to such levels. There's a hive mindset here that all leftists are stupid and it makes the forum difficult to read because the majority of the comments are about evil leftists, union bozos, how ugly the NDP leader is, etc.

Not really a "hive mindset". More like a "well proven actuality based on almost unlimited evidence". Or you could just take a trip to Venezuela, and let us know, if you survive, how great Leftists are after you get back.
Justin Trudeau- racist, elitist, liar. What a sick piece of garbage.

I'm not sure how you expect to have some sort of intellectual argument if you're just going to stomp your feet and yet again claim that all leftists are stupid.

I've admitted twice now that people on the left have made some missteps by calling Clark a bimbo and by supporting the Leap Manifesto. But instead of commenting on these issues, you'd rather just continue the "all leftists are dumb" rhetoric that plagues like every thread on this website? Really?

Donald Trump is
ignorant, delusional, unethical, disingenuous, divisive, inarticulate, incompetent, hypocritical, thin-skinned, grossly narcissistic sociopath; an uncouth, arrogant, autocratic, bloviating, bullying, misogynistic, pathological liar, and a political neophyte, with a febrile brain

Christy Clark is
a bimbo

OMG, how dare you, she is our Premier, where is your "respect", you should be ashamed of yourself..!! :laugh:

The term "bimbo" is different because it infers the looks of a woman is somehow relevant. It's meaning is attractive but unintelligent, saying she isn't smart is one thing, having her looks somehow play into it is masoggynist.

IMHO, 'bimbo' refers to a person's intelligence and nothing more, and the term could apply to.........no, I mustn't say that here.
However, is it really necessary to submit repetitive 'tweets' on this thread? I find it interrupts the discussion and does nothing to enhance the conversation.

To prove that this comment is 'on topic', I'd like to submit my thoughts on 'denying the obvious: It's obvious that certain commenters are trying to make political hay over things that are definitely apolitical.

Also unbelievable that any NDP lovers here would now try and deny that the love for the Leap doesn't exist. It's right there, clear as day on social media, just like it's clear as day when it tumbled from the lips of John Horgan himself. Anyone in a union outside of government should be distancing themselves from the NDP as far as they can right now, as a vote for the NDP is essentially cutting your own throat if you are a union that wants its members actually working for the next 4 years. The Leap Manifesto is an economic death sentence.



I think the NDP MLAs are simply stating their love of the Leap Manifesto, just as Horgan himself has.

It's party policy. They have embraced it, and are promoting it to their supporters.

It's obvious that they think they can win by promising to wipe out jobs and wipe out investment in BC. I think they may have overestimated how many people are stupid enough to support the idea, however. :up:

If you feel misogyny and sexism are "non issues" it shows even more why the NDP mindset needs to never win an election.

It's "obvious" we need to make BC great again and the only way to do that is to elect "anyone" other than the lying, profiteering, photo-op obsessed, FIBerals and there's NO denying that..!!

:

I don't like the Leap Manifesto, it's an idea that would be bad for Canada if ever implemented. Can someone please provide a link proving that the Leap Manifesto is now official NDP policy as Rwede is claiming...I'd hate to discover that he's mistaken about something.

Since this thread is about what some consider to be sexist remarks made towards Christy Clark, the discussion should also include the inappropriate, perhaps even sexist remarks, that Christy Clark herself has made. Examples being

And it's hard to forget Christy's disgusting public ridicule about her ex-husbands bedroom performance.
