NDP’s Charlie Angus calls Conservative cabinet ministers “batshit crazy”

attawapiskat turmel angus

In 2012, NDP MP Charlie Angus quit Twitter:

“The Twitterverse, I don’t think, is a real place,” Angus said in an interview with CBC Radio’s local Ottawa morning show this week. “I haven’t seen any reflection that when something is trending on Twitter, (it) necessarily reflects what people are saying at Tim Hortons.” (see here)

Yet Angus couldn’t stay away and ironically it’s another Tim Hortons quote aimed at Conservative ministers that will land him in some serious hot water:


To call fellow Parliamentarians “batshit crazy” is beyond any acceptable political party boundaries and NDP leader Thomas Mulcair must force Angus to make a public apology and if he refuses, remove him from caucus.

    It would be fitting for Angus to wear the “batshit crazy” tee shirt himself. Don’t expect any apology, it would be hollow anyway.
    Mulcair and company are riding high since the protest vote in Alberta, they think they’re on the cusp of leading the country.

    NDP since Jack Layton onwards including Mulcair who called our oil sands ‘DUTCH DISEASE’ , Nathan Cullen etch have said that they will shut down the oil sands, pipelines and big oil companies… all from where thousands upon thousands of Canadians from coast to coast rely on jobs at the oil industries for their daily living.

    Do not just Boycott Tim Horton’s .
    BOYCOTT the NDP by Refusing to vote for them in the next election.
    Any of the ndp voters who work in the oil industry do not vote for Mulcair and his party.

      The NDP would do a great job of killing the economy and have more people on welfare, it’s the Socialist way. What they haven’t figured out is who will pay for the welfare. Trudeau, the empty suit with a recognizable name tag, is still waiting for his brains behind the curtain to feed him his lines. It all goes well until someone asks him a question, then he bungles through, they need to figure out a way to feed him answers.

    Lizj, Venezuelan Hugo Chávez who the NDP like very much, pulled a stunt which he later regretted.
    He told his people the ones who depend on him for daily living that the wealthy will pay even though Venezuela raked and continues to rake in Billions of dollars yearly from the oil. But since he needed that money to satisfy his special groups and family; he wanted the wealthy to pay for the needs of Venezuelans.
    When the wealthy heard of his intentions, they immediately remove their money from the Venezuelan Banks to other countries.
    When Hugo heard what the wealthy people did, he begged them to return their money which they refused.
    He wanted the wealthy to pay for his welfare people while he flourished in the billion of dollars oil revenues.
    The NDP are using the same tactics.

    For some of us who are not wealthy will not allow our money be use on lazy bums or ndp specials groups like the unions for one….
    Let the media suckers pay for the NDP special groups.

      Jen, no one has defined socialism better than Winston Churchill: “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, it’s inherent virtue is the sharing of misery”.

      The Liberals have a lot of socialistic tenets in their philosophy at this juncture as they try to out maneuver the NDP.
      Like the NDP they want to take care of us from cradle to grave, only they know what’s good for us. Looking at the situation in Ontario with the Wynne Liberals as an example one has to wonder if communism be far behind?

    It’s hard to believe the NDP are really the Official Opposition the way the media consortium treats their boy Trudeau. Trudeau is their choice to take the title of Prime Minister, they are his suit of armor. Also Ontario Liberal premier Wynne has declared she and her party will be supporting Trudeau for the upcoming election. Nice if the people want the rest of Canada to be in the colossal mess the McGuinty/Wynne Liberals have made of Ontario.

    They better also realize Wynne knows she can manipulate Trudeau to get what she needs in more bailout money, she cannot do that with the present PM or his government, she gets her share and that’s it.

    Charlie and the rest of the NDP have little room to criticize Senate misspending when they owe the government $2.75 million for their illegal satellite offices, refuse to pay it back and now have to be taken to court. They just refuse to talk about it showing they know little about stones and glass houses.

    • Liz J Says:

      Apparently it’s $2.7 million the NDP collectively owe. Whatever, they refuse to talk about it and they will be heading to court. They don’t seem to think there’s anything wrong with funneling money from an Ontario riding to a Quebec riding either. It appears they had a well thought out scheme going.

      Now that the former Grand Fromage of the Bloc has decided to return the NDP may have more problems. How many of the Quebec NDP MP’s will decide to join Duceppe, especially the ones who were former separatists?

  6. Jen Says:

    Keep alert Liz, and try not be manipulated by the new found Hugo Chávez/NDP style fool you.
    Do not be surprise that our national resources like the ‘ oil sands and the companies involved in it are ‘Nationalized’ and run by the likes of NDP.
    As we already know the NDP will bring back the:
    CWB – only to western farmers
    LFC(long form census)
    Double funding to CBC from $1.1Billion to $2.+Billion yearly from TAXPAYERS.
    There are more items the fed NDP under Thomas Mulcair the unionist and pals plan to implement.

    BTW Liz j, check out Charlene Desroches @ char_lawyer

    She is good.
