Elizabeth May Is F*cking Up Your Kid

Update: According to John Gormley, the leader of the Green Party is suddenly and uncharacteristically unavailable for media interviews.

After listening to calls to JGL this morning, I sent John the following in an email:

Young Greens Or Old Reds?

I think everyone is missing the point here. It's not the "f*cked up planet" that's at issue - it's the tactic of convincing youth to reject their parents in favour of The Party. The Party knows best, The Party knows all. In not so distant times, this propaganda style led to young people turning their parents in to the state for prosecution, even execution...

It's not funny, it has nothing to do with the environment, and Elizabeth May should be called to account on it.

$20 says that she is on the conference calls with her lawyers in anticipation of about 10,000,000 slander lawsuits from those parents.

UhOh. Kate. Where you a naughty little conservative,and informed him about Dizzy May's new ad? Hope so! hehehehe

Maybe she's just getting a buck-toothectomy?? Green one of course.Pliers only.

Ah, those Greenies are all fecked up, so what they're doing is projecting their faults.

BTW, it snowed here in NB last night... Honestly, I can't recall snow in early October in my 31 years in the province!

How about that global warming thing, eh?

It's surprizing that they allowed this on their web site, but hey, stuff happens. Blame it on some unsupervised kids.

But it's ASTONISHING that it's still up after many days. How staggeringly incompetent do you have to be?

It's often not the initial mistake that does one in - it's what one does, or doesn't do, about the mistake afterwords that kills ya.

Canadian Sentinel - seems like there was at least three inches of fresh snow in Calgary this am.

That comment about getting young people to reject their parents for "the party" is spot on.

Posted by: Erik Larsen at October 14, 2009 1:10 PM

Soviet propaganda used to highlight the case of one Pavlik Morozov, who ratted out his parents to "The Party" for being "kulaks" in the 1930s.

Now, suddenly (post-1991), the details surrounding his story are supposedly "murky".

Funny how that works.

Posted by: jwkozak91 at October 14, 2009 1:17 PM

Don't forget this is the same Lizzie May who founded Acorn. They might as well call it Crooked Commies 'R Us.

As for the green part, it's all wealth redistribution. Again, another commie idea.

That was the point I was trying to make before, I was so mad that I could not articulate it, thanks for your much better explanation of our position.

Western Society is fighting the deterioration of the family in favour of the collective, and we really need to get back to the values that built the lasting society we enjoy.

jwkozak91, since I am the grandson of kulaks and many of our relatives were murdered by the Marxist "world joy-bringers", I am not sure where your 1:17 post is coming from. Some details please.

The material in the "Greens" website asking young people to reject their parents is similar to that peddled by the Communists(Bolsheviks) in Russia during the 1920s and 30s.

Even the commie-lite NDP has not yet stooped to this level. Although the poster boy of the Green movement, Dr. Fruitfly, has suggested that those who do not believe should be jailed.

I know this is a tad off topic, but while we're on the topic of Green, we were recently writing in on the topic of corkscrew bulbs. A Manitoba engineer has made an interesting find. When you replace your conventional bulbs with corkscrews, you also reduce the amount of heat that was generated by the old Edison bulbs. Guess what will happen to your heating bill?? End result?? Little or no savings. Conclusion: You only save during the months that you don't heat your home, In Winnipeg, that's three months.

Posted by: Joe Citizen at October 14, 2009 1:52 PM

Funny how this has not made the MSM!

As someone said the other day under this topic. The Green Political Party recieves $$$ from our Taxdollars.

And to one other poster I whole heartedly agree She Should NOT be included in the next general election debates

Elizabeth May should not be criticized for her appearance, grotesque though it may be. Likewise for her obvious stupidity. Stupidity is not a crime or our prisons would be overflowing.

However, she should be severely chastised for receiving the funding available to political parties. As everyone knows, the Green Party has exactly zero seats in the House and, in all likelihood, will continue on that course. Yet May and her "party" roll along propped up almost entirely by tax dollars courtesy of those who would never cast a ballot in her direction.

As for the leaders' debate .... May has no more right to participate (if you can call shrill interruptions and hysterical shrieks participation) than do I.

This foolishness must end and it must end quickly.

Wikipedia re. Pavlik Morozov of Gerasimovka, "a small village 350 kilometers north-east of Yekaterinburg (Sverdlovsk)":

"Pavel Trofimovich Morozov (Russian: Па́вел Трофи́мович Моро́зов; November 14, 1918 – September 3, 1932), better known by the diminutive Pavlik, was a Soviet youth glorified by Soviet propaganda as a martyr. His story, dated to 1932, is that of a 13-year old boy who denounced his father to the authorities and was in turn killed by his family. It was a Soviet morality tale: opposing the state was selfish and reactionary, and state was a higher virtue than family love. His story was a subject of compulsory children readings, songs, plays, a symphonic poem, a full-length opera and six biographies. The cult had a huge impact on [the]moral norms of generations of [Soviet] children.[1]

"There is very little original evidence related to the story, much of it [being] hearsay provided by second-hand witnesses. According to modern research, the story (denunciation, trial) is most likely false, although Pavlik was a real child who was killed."

Excellent point Kate. Someone needs to get inside the schools---a closed book to most of us---to show us that this sort of thing has become commonplace. Cultural revolution indeed.

As far as this old taxpayer can see the F*ckup here is that we are giving money to those Gr**n F*ckers for doing... What?? As far as being included in the leaders debate they brought exactly nothing to the debate the last time except an ignorant, classless display of rude juvenile behavior, apparently nothing has changed. As Forrest Gump said "stupid is as stupid does" Thing of it is us old people (parents) pay attention and we get out and vote. Pull the $1.95 subsidy PM Harper and put the money towards the deficeit.

*****Kids are funny, they all want to be green, but not many of them know how to turn off a light when they leave a room or ride a bike to school.****

Actually hereabouts and likely are not allowed to walk or ride a bike to school. Here(rural) there is an elementary school,(just 1 mile down the road) serviced by school buses, with several houses adjoining the property. The kids from those houses not only MUST ride the bus those few feet but they may not go home for lunch....
This is the #$%^ school board not the stupid kids.
Is it any wonder the kids are examples of arrested development.
BTW they turned that school over to "french immersion" and now bus the same kids 5-10 miles to other schools.

To be fair, Elizabeth May isn't the first person to jump on the "don't trust anyone over thirty" band wagon. That doesn't make it any less tiresome, annoying, intrusive and morally invasive. If people wanted the government or a political party to intrude on heir personal lives I believe they would have asked.
And really, slacker kids make the worst activists. Sure, they'll throw a brick but won't get up on time to vote.
Just my thoughts.

The realization that incandescent bulbs supply heat is not new and is not the astonishing discovery of a Winnipeg engineer.

Most of us struggling against eco-fascism have known this since the begining and have been trying to emphasize this as well as the mercury polluting effects of the CFLs.

If we are forced to replace incandescents in Canada, our heating bills will increase and we will have mercury pollution (causes brain damage) from improperly disposed of CFls.

I think that Mrs Beaver (she was great in the Narnia movies) has been exposing herself (to mercury) for way too long.

The green party currently is a bunch of carpet-baggers in ottawa living off of the vote subsidy. It is a party idea that could grow IF it had a strong fiscally conservative backbone AND a real foreign affairs platform.

Alas it does not and the leeches that run it are not the least interested in actually being in power - being accountable (where's the fun - the three hour lunches, etc. - in that?). Ads like the F-U one above only marginalize the party even more and thus no other party could be bothered to attack them.

Are they communist or fascists? NO. Communist/ fascist rhetoric appeals to the two most basic of attributes that the youth most often possess: Impatience and the urge to blame someone else for not getting what they want. Real communists/fascists want to actually rule the rest of us, the greens do not possess that attribute.

Soccermon, I can't remember reading that before.
Do you have any news articles, to which you could link, connecting Elizabeth May to ACORN?

How does May manage to hold on to the leadership of the Green Party? She can't even win a federal riding and she and Dion were cooking up deals at the expense of their own party members.

Listen up, Lizzie. My f*cked-up generation brought in nuclear power, 93% energy efficient furnaces, solar panels, cold water detergent, fleeces, CFLs, whopping per gallon mileage increases, fibreglass insulation, LED lights ... the list goes on.
All you've managed so far is to blow umpteen obscene tons of carbon into the air jetting hither, thither and yon, desperately searching out an agglomeration of sufficiently large numbers of voting idiots that will give you ecomaniac-self some semblance of legitimacy via a Parliamentary seat ... somewhere; anywhere.

Well written Kate! It is not the gutter language that is cause for retribution; any fool can utter potty talk (it is a phase in the lives of average 8-10 year old boys - they find anything to do with ablutions hilarious; my nephew choose 'poop' to be his example of a palindrome, rather than pop, mom, dad etc. when he was 10. He outgrew that phase and now uses adult language without using the 'F' word to fill in for verbs, adverbs, nouns, adjectives, conjunctions etc. Is Dizzy Lizzy mentally 10 and a boy? Who knew??

No, the gutter language is just stupid but using taxpayers $$ to slander taxpayers is serious. Not many 10 year old boys pay taxes...their parents do and the parents are the target of the Greenis!! This is serious and it should be taken to the supreme court by a group of indignant tax paying parents. She has crossed over from abusive and perverse to be subversive and guilty of usury. That is against the law.

nick: "Someone needs to get inside the schools---a closed book to most of us---to show us that this sort of thing has become commonplace."

I was doing that when my kids were in public school a long time ago ... and, guess what, I got very little support. 'Problem is, you've got to have a critical mass of parents knowing what's going on and making an issue of it, or else the school admin will do everything they can to marginalize and demonize you and, given that most parents are sheeple, most don't have the guts to counter the lies and innuendos.

At least my own kids -- and their friends, whether they liked it or not! -- knew what was going on. I'm a great believer in speaking truth to lies -- and leaving the rest to G*d.

I objected to Lizzie May being in on the leaders' debate a few years ago and agree that she has absolutely no business benefitting from the privilege of being an elected Member of Parliament, like the four other leaders.

John had interviewed the leader of the Green Youth and he said the row of houses in the picture were there to represent urban sprall. I called into JG to mention how uncomfortable the guy sounded having to explain the Green solution for urban sprall; which is government issued housing based upon need.
I went on to talk about me Green Party dreadlocks-past-his-butt hippie friend in Toronto who told me "we need to move away from a production based economy to a need based economy." When I told him that was from the Communist Manifesto, he said no, it wasn't, it was from the Greem Party...

on a side note, my Toronto friend really isn't a good hippie; he is makes 6 figures a year, complains constantly about his hippie friends wanting to share his wealth, "they should go out and get a damn job like I did! There's lots of jobs out there if you're willing to work!" and most recently he kicked his own mother out of his rental house for not paying the rent. Seriously.

The lefties want a feudal system where they think they will have no responsibility for themselves as the lord of the manor will take care of their needs in exchange for some menial toil. Think of the end of day bonfires and the singalongs.

It's all great until they realize that there is not enough to go around and that they are actually slaves. That's when they start to protest ... then the floggings will begin as a message to shut the f*ck up and get back to your allotted hovel. And no more fires and hand in the guitars.

At that point, the environment will be meaningless. And the ugly little toad E May will not likely be eligible for anything but plucking chickens and certainly not any nobleman's mistress.

Their latest issue has the cover story of what they feel the "W" in George W. Bush stands for. After reading a bit of it, I can come up with a few things that the "S" stands for.

Found the Contact Us section. Went right ahead and contacted them.


To those responsible for this ad campaign to the Young Greens:

As a young voter (I am 18) I do not appreciate this attempt to belittle my parents and the parents of this generation. The implication that they are wasteful is offensive, and the claim that they 'f*cked up' our planet misguided and untrue. Blaming problems with the environment (which, I might add, are grossly exaggerated by the mainstream media and amount to an insipid attempt to make people feel good about themselves for being 'green') on our parents' generation has nothing to do with the environment. It attacks family unity and makes light of the innumerable sacrifices our parents have made for us. Even now, many of us who are university students are completely dependent on our parents' generosity for our continuing education.

In the next federal election, I will be voting for Stephen Harper's Conservatives.

My guess is that this attempt by the Green's to be cutting edge or whatever they call this clap trap, is merely a symptom of what happens when a party with good intentions gets co-opted by an opportunist like Sister Lizzie May.
All the folks that saw a potential to effect the political landscape or where finding some political compass for the first time in their life, have either been brainwashed to accept this, or have gotten discouraged and decided they will just disengage entirely from the political process. These are people that now have the attitude "their all the same so why bother".
Thanks Lizzie, for all your efforts the only thing you managed to accomplish is to turn off folks that maybe, just maybe might have thought of the green party as a legitimate politcal player.
Somebody already mentioned it but it needs repeating, hell maybe even a blog campaign to give it a life of its own.

Kill the political subsidy, there are two good reasons, the Bloc and folks like Lizzie May.

That obnoxious, mealy mouthed, shrill, slovenly disgusting slob of a woman represents everything that is wrong with leftist thinking. Socialism took a crap and Elizabeth May plopped out.

At my gun club we are greener than the Green Party. After every election we go out and collect their coroplast election signage. It seems like they are always the last party to take their signs down.
The rigid coroplast makes great backing to hang our paper targets on.

Lizzy stepped in it up to her considerably chubby knees, no doubt about it.
David Suzuki did it on TV right in our faces. Or don't we remember him sneaking into kids bedrooms at night through an open window to tell them to rat on their parents. And then there was that insidious tv commercial about the little girl leaving home because her mommy failed to recycle ONE juice box???
Lizzie may have taken a sledge hammer to subtlty but she and her greenies have done nothing the CBC and Suzuki have not already tried.
I have a few suggestions about what they can do to those swirly lightbulds and it does not include a socket!

Re Grobe: I've always thought that hunters, anglers, and farmers have forgotten WAY more about conservation and the environment than the latte sippers ever knew. If you ever wanted to see the hair on my dad's neck spike up in a hurry, all you needed was a guy in a suit mouthing the phrase "we need to educate".

I see that a direct link from "" to the offending page has been removed, although you can still go to "" directly.

Wheels turn slowly in the Green Party. A competent leader would have had that link broken in the time it takes to get the web master on the phone.

Doesn't say much for their decision making.

And now they want to f*ck up our kids.
Interesting that on their website, when you go to 'contact us' they ask to list your school/university, where I am sure 99% of their support comes from.

"It seems like they are always the last party to take their signs down."

No surprise there. Those that typically support the Green Party are not really into actual "work" ... especially the menial variety.

Actually, it's a surprise that they were even able to muster the ambition to erect the signs in the first place.

Hey didn't us Ontarioians pay 2 million $$ to Virgin Records to trademark "FLIck"
All "F" shots are our lying provincial leaders intellectual property.

The new nickel really does flatter Lizzie.

If Dizzie Lizzie´s Greens elect their first MP, their first private members bill will be to lower the eligible voting age to 16. This creates a whole new army of newly programmed groupthink lefties at the same time as it finally would provide a segment of the electorate that Liz May might possibly be able to converse with.

Wow! I have never read so much fear in my life.

Why do you all fear the Green Party so much ?

The little Green Party can bring out so much seething rabid hate in you all is amazing.

Have fun with your little Harper toy and when he puts you kid in prison with a mandatory minimum sentence for passing a joint to a friend at school then you will find out what these NeoCons are all about.....And don't think you kids aren't smoking.

I don't fear the GP in the least, but I am fascinated by such a show of ineptitude and poor judgment. With these kind of political instincts, they don't represent a threat to anyone.

What the hell are you smoking,time to cut back dude,you are sounding like an idiot.Or do you always sound like this,as you were then,dolt.

Posted by: h.ryan at October 16, 2009 7:18 PM

yikes. well you all may be happy, (or not) to know that the only influence of the green party i've ever seen is online on blogs of people disgusted with them.

i dont hear radio ads on the way to work, or tv commercials from them. i've never even recieved junk mail.

i'd say they were pretty happily stuck in the filth of the background rather than being a serious topic of mainstream society. even amoung their main demographic...

which is of course 14 year old drooling morons too stupid to swallow their own saliva

here, just contacted them with this:

As a youngster, I was brought up to believe some fairly standard things.

I am 23 years old, not new to voting, but neither has it become old hat.

I believe in truth, honesty, and respect for my elders. Your posted ad for the youth of Canada disgusts me.

First and foremost, this ad displays a message to young people that they should trust the Green Party of Canada over their own parents. This is a funded advertisement stating that the party is good and the parents are bad. I haven't seen an ad like this since I researched Soviet and Nazi propaganda for a class project. These two political groups also sent the message that allegiance to the party was more important than to the parents. WW2 Italy and Communist China also had propaganda of this sort. As a man descended from people who fought and fled the Dictatorship of Nazi Germany, I am profoundly disappointed to see this ad on an official website of a political party in Canada.

Second, the most wasteful people I ever meet are about my age. I see the overwhelming majority of people my age as very wasteful, and very lazy when it comes to doing things to help the environment. walking the walk is not nearly as easy as talking the talk. I see lights left on all the time, ovens used as heaters, furnaces left running while the windows are open, and doors that no one has bothered to seal properly. I see houses that do not have blue bins and cars that are large, old, and poorly maintained.

Thirdly, this ad is profoundly offensive to my parents' generation. Theirs is the generation that believed things should be used until they could no longer be repaired, who brought CFLs, HE Furnaces, clean deisel, hybrid cars, clean nuclear energy, cold water detergent, HE washers, dryers, solar panels, wind turbines, tidal power generation, geothermal power generation, geothermal heating/cooling, efficiency standards and environmental standards. And that is only to name a few.

I find your message to be infantile and disgusting. Its funny that a lowly welder such as myself is able to make an argument without resorting to curse words, while the word F*CK is part of your slogan. This behavior simply is vile.

I will not be voting for the Green Party, and I will be informing friends and family of your moral deprevation. I can only hope someone sues you for defamation for all the parents you have insulted.

Well, here is the final nail in the Green Party coffin and ironically they pounded it in themselves. Lizzy's next job will have something to do with french fries and burgers.
