In Tommy Angry Beard's NDP there'll be no straight talk about Israel and its steady atrocities against Palestinian civilians in the prison camp commonly known as Gaza. There'll be no loose talk about war crimes and certainly no mention of Dahiyeh. That might cost votes.
In a gaffe that sounded like something Noam Chomsky might say (and he has), candidate Morgan Wheeldon posted a Facebook entry claiming it was arguable that Israel was seeking to ethnically cleanse Gaza and even used the dreaded words, "war crime."
That sort of talk was for the old NDP, the party that used to speak truth to power, not today's NDP, the party that won't let principle stand in the way of grubbing for every vote it can get.
LeDaro has posted two interesting clips. One is of Jimmy Carter, the other a British MP, Gerald Kaufman. Good thing neither of them is an NDP candidate. Mulcair would have them both axed.
And that is how far Mulcair and his followers have debased the New Democratic Party.
