NDP MP calls Canadian WWI soldiers ‘butchers’


NDP leader Thomas Mulcair has a huge fire to put out now that the lunatic-Left in his caucus has spoken out against WWI:

Writing on a left-wing Quebec blog, New Democrat MP Alexandre Boulerice mocked the conflict as “a purely capitalist war on the backs of the workers and peasants.

“The only ones to have refused this butchery, to have rejected the call of the ‘sacred union’ within each nation, were communist activists,” (see here)

Nice way to remember our fallen soldiers on the day of Vimy Ridge huh?

    Mulcair must be thinking with friends like this who needs enemas. Glad he’s got the nutbars – only wish the msm would highlight these cranks more often. Grandly pontificating and dumping garbage on a truly tragic era shows this guy to be completely bereft of common sense/decency.

    I had about 15 relatives serve in WW1, my Grandfather was a highly decorated veteran of the cavalry, Royal Canadian Dragoons, medalled by King George himself. He was wounded in action at least three times that I know of,and the last time he laid on the battlefield for a couple of days before some French Nuns discovered he wasn’t one of the dead.

    A couple of relatives were killed in action. All wore the trauma of that terrible war until the day they died.

    The NDP a**hole has the “right” to call the soldiers of that conflict whatever he chooses,as this Country allegedly allows free speech,and I reserve the right to call that NDP MP whatever I choose,and none of it is printable here on a respectable blog.

    And that attitude toward our soldiers is one of the reasons I will never vote for the NDP.

      No serious historian would make such an uninformed statement, on the causes and resultant ends of WWI. The realistic approach to the conflict has filled volumes and a ‘reductio ad absurdum’ is hardly the last word on the subject.

      The proposition that WWI can be reduced to mere class warfare concepts hurtled out of the Russian Revolutions is hardly a serious attempt at a studied analysis.

      Perhaps the unlearned member should consult some real historians, like say Jack Granatstein or Sir Martin Gilbert and he may make some more intelligible statements; particularly on a day like the anniversary of Vimy Ridge.

    Same old same old from the clueless NDP they and the Liberanos danced on our Vetrans coffins, accused them of atrocitys.
    This is good and true.
    My uncles, my farher my Mom were all overseas, they did not flinch or complain.
    They got the job done.
    I am forever grateful.
    What is a vet?

    By Father Dennis Edward O’Brien, USMC

    Some veterans bear visible signs of their service: a missing limb, a jagged scar, a certain look in the eye. Others may carry the evidence inside them: a pin holding a bone together, a piece of shrapnel in the leg or perhaps another sort of inner steel: the soul’s ally forged in the refinery of adversity. Except in parades, however, the men and women who have kept America safe wear no badge or emblem. You can’t tell a vet just by looking.

    What is a vet?

    He is the cop on the beat who spent six months in Saudi Arabia sweating two gallons a day making sure the armored personnel carriers didn’t run out of fuel.

    He is the barroom loudmouth, dumber than five wooden planks, whose overgrown frat-boy behavior is outweighed a hundred times in the cosmic scales by four hours of exquisite bravery near the38th parallel.

    She or he is the nurse who fought against futility and went to sleep sobbing every night for two solid years in Da Nang.

    He is the POW who went away one person and came back another or didn’t come back AT ALL.

    He is the Quantico drill instructor who has never seen combat, but has saved countless lives by turning slouchy, no account rednecks and gang members into Marines, and teaching them to watch each other’s backs.

    He is the parade riding Legionnaire who pins on his ribbons and medals with a prosthetic hand.

    He is the career quartermaster who watches the ribbons and medals pass him by.

    He is the three anonymous heroes in The Tomb of the Unknowns, whose presence at the Arlington National Cemetery must forever preserve the memory of all the anonymous heroes whose valor dies unrecognized with them on the battlefield or in the ocean’s sunless deep.

    He is the old guy bagging groceries at the supermarket-palsied now and aggravatingly slows who helped liberate a Nazi death camp and who wishes all day long that his wife were still alive to hold him when the nightmares come.

    He is an ordinary and yet an extraordinary human being, a person who offered some of his life’s most vital years in the service of his country, and who sacrificed his ambitions so others would not have to sacrifice theirs.

    He is a soldier and a savior and a sword against the darkness, and he is nothing more than the finest, greatest testimony on behalf of the finest, greatest nation ever known.

    So remember, each time you see someone who has served our country, just lean over and say “THANK YOU.” That’s all most people need, and in most cases it will mean more than any medals they could have been awarded or were awarded.

    Two little words mean a lot, “THANK YOU.”

    “It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.”

        “Here I stand I can do no more”
        These posers have never grasped the fact that armies do not start wars, politicians do.
        As for the NDP MP Alexandre Boulerice
        he can rush off to any Communist country he likes.
        I sit in my office next to a case displaying my Grandfather’s hand made brass telescope.
        I also have a copy of his enlistment papers.
        He joined the RN in 1877 at the age of 15.
        He served until 1910, was present at the bombardment of Alexandra in 1882, it is noted on his papers.
        When ww 1 started he was back in uniform within 24 hours training young sailors until the duration.
        Little Alex can profess his commie-love all he wants because real men and women stepped forward and did the heavy lifting.

    No real Canadian can possibly vote for the NDP whose leader allows this remark to go unchallenged by a member of his party. Those of us who had relatives killed or gassed at Vimy Ridge, those who fought for the freedoms we have under great hardships in World War1 then having them referred to as butchers by a member of the parliament of this country makes one physically ill.
    I weep in somber silence.

  6. dillon Says:

    Mr. Bowlarice is an *******. But what French separatist isn’t.

  7. Brian Mouland Says:

    My grandfather was at Vimy Ridge too bad he and his army buddies could not get hold of this gutless traitor for 15 minutes

  8. Grateful Says:

    I just wanted to add, that a Vet is anyone who signed on the dotted line, to serve his or her country. They may or may not have seen combat, but they were ready for it.

    We thank you.

    • Michael Harkov Says:

      And to add, they may or may not have agreed about the war their government was engaging in, but they still did their duty regardless.

      Again, we thank you.

  9. tom walsh Says:

    Never did accept why we as canadians have to support people like this gentleman and others who hate this country and want to break it up. This is a good way to be booted out of NDP but then run for bloc

  10. Chuck Says:

    I wore my countries uniform for 32 years, just so people like this MP can exercise their freedoms. I do not agree with him, but I have already proven that I was prepared to defend his right to share his beliefs, however asinine they may be. What I find puzzling is how come CBC & CTV, do not have any coverage on this? I wonder if an idiot fringe comment by a conservative MP would be likewise ignored by main stream media?
