BC Conservative leader Cummins compares himself to Jesus Christ

There’s an internal fight going on inside the BC Conservative Party over John Cummins’ leadership or lack there of and Cummins and his gang are showing how they continue to deal with dissent.

There has been a litany of resignations (see here) in the last couple of weeks and Cummins throws gasoline on the fire by publicly calling one of the board members who is demanding the party follow its constitutionally mandated leadership review process, a Judas:

“There’s always somebody that is going to disagree. He’s the one, I guess. I don’t perceive it as a huge threat by any stretch of the imagination,” said Cummins, adding it is unreasonable to believe that any leader could enjoy unanimous support.

“I hate to use a biblical reference but Christ had 12 apostles and one turned him in,” Cummins said.

“We share the same initials but I can’t rise from the dead and I can’t get unanimity on the board. I wouldn’t expect to be able to. He couldn’t. I can’t.” (see here)

Stay tuned as I’m being told that a letter of support for Cummins has been sent out “by the majority of the board” accusing this same director of trying to get a party membership list in order to “spread their divisive message” 

What a gong show.

Update: Global picked up the story and John Daly shows exactly how the Liberals will use these biblical references against Cummins and the BC Conservatives (see here)

    What the hell is going on? The BC Conservatives are our only chance of stopping the NDP from ruining BC and these ‘Assholes’ can’t get themselves to agree on an important item such as a leader.
    C’mon guys. either boot the noisemaker or sway him.

    I have been sittin’ in the bushes waiting to see what this Provincial party is all about.
    That half the money being collected is going to dear leader is troubling seeing as how he is already collecting a generous pension.
    Seems he is also a “higher power” in his not so humble opinion.
    Comparing your self to the son of God is troubling and I think blasphemy.
    He is not one of the Beatles either.

    • BC Blue Says:

      Two pensions you mean? Cummins was also a teacher, so on top of his gold-plated MP one, he could very well be double-dipping and then you add the $48,000 he gets from the BC Cons

    At this rate, we’ll have an NDP majority for sure. Good thing my income is actually derived from out-of-province business.

    We ARE going to have an NDP government next May,barring a catastrophe,such as The Big One dropping the Province into the Pacific,so we’d better prepare for it.

    I’ll estimate the NDP will win 60 of 82 seats.
    and that’s probably pessimistic to the NDP. People ARE pissed,I haven’t heard such anger since the Socred days,and WE ultimately,are about to pay the price.

    If you live up North,prepare for oil and gas exploration, pipelines,and mining to grind to a halt. Be ready to move elsewhere, as in Alberta or Saskatchewan, to find a job. Maybe explore selling your house while the prices are still up.

    If you’re a civil servant,relax,good times are ahead.

    But remember, tourism and green jobs will pick up the economy(extreme sarcasm).

    • BC Blue Says:

      I’m gonna stick around and see what I can do to help get a real Conservative Party here in BC 😉

    • Jen Says:

      In ither words dmorris ‘welcome to a ‘have-not’ province’. Peter Jullian, Nathan Cullen and Thomas Mulclair will definitely shut down bc livilhood. They would no doubt that the bc ndp follow their orders. No incoming tankers carrying oil for bcers would be allowed. Every bc man woman and child would be living under the green energy act, making it very difficult for the ordinary joe to live.

      As a matter of fact, a lot of people(mostly albertans) who bought homes in Fairmount are having troubles selling their homes.

    This kind of inflammatory nitpicking is just what conservatives, in BC or anywhere, DON’T DO. Seems to me that Blue has a bigger ego problem than Cummins. We are instructed by the doubters, detractors and betrayers of God Himself to be wary of but unphased by our own dissidents. That said, I think I’m in agreement with Blue and others that until BC conservatives find their Danielle Smith we are doomed.

      “We are instructed by the doubters, detractors and betrayers of God Himself to be wary of but unphased by our own dissidents.”

      Another us vs them from a fanatic who believes they are on the side of God and others are not.

  7. Jen Says:

    I read on your side twitter that the NDP Nathan Cullen is disparaging Albertans. Coming from a party that took illegal/union donations is very rich. Nathan Cullen is looking out for Nathan Cullen. He still lives wears eats things that have oil in them. Do you really think that the NDP will live in some hole with no electricty, no clothes, food from the store and so on- Of course not. It is the general public-the stupid duped brainwashed little guy who are going to live in poverty while the NDP live off them.
    Don’t you find rather rich for the NDP to scream bloody hell for the ‘little guy’ while at the same time living off them.

    I attended an antiques show in Enderby today. One of the exhibitors was spouting off about the recent Liberal resignations. When one fellow mentioned that he was fearful of another NDP government,the guy responded,”sure there’s reason to be concerned,but remember the NDP is the Party of The People.”

    I almost gagged. But you would be surprised at how many people who are NOT NDP Party members use that line.

    The “public” is not made up of the political junkies we interact with on the blogs. Most people I meet get their information from CBC or other MSM outlets,trust Dr.Suzuki to always have our best interests at heart, and think Jack Layton was simply wonderful. And these are mostly (small “c”) conservative people.

    My LPC sister used to insist the public was too stupid to be entrusted with political decisions,particularly referendums. I hate to admit it, but she was, for the most part, correct.

    So, we’re about to cut off our collective nose to spite our face,and vote in the NDP in a landslide.

    That’ll teach them damned Liberals.

    Sigh.
