Perhaps a page should have stuck to her, er, knitting

Earlier:

Kelly McParland Eviscerates a 21 Year Old Narcissist

Now more simple reality:

...

The Canadian Senate Page Program: Each year, fifteen university students from across Canada are selected to participate in the program - one of the most sought-after privileges available to university students. "Under the direction of the Usher of the Black Rod, these leaders of tomorrow are given a remarkable opportunity to be leaders of today."

Brigette DePape: The 21-year-old graduate from the University of Ottawa made headlines for holding up a protest sign that read 'Stop Harper' at the start of the Throne Speech: "This country needs a Canadian version of an Arab Spring." DePape has since received several job offers and is considering taking a position with the Public Service Alliance of Canada.

Hamza Ali al-Khateeb: A 13-year-old Syrian boy who tagged along at an antigovernment protest in the town of Saida a few weeks ago, was arrested, was burned, beaten, lacerated and given electroshocks. His jaw and kneecaps were shattered. He was shot in both arms. When his father saw the state of Hamza’s body, he passed out...

But Harper must be stopped; up DePape's self-promoting...:

Everyone is over-thinking this chickie and her disrespectful conduct.

Her beloved side lost the election, and she is a sore loser. In fact, she is the symbolic leader of a whole lot of post-election sore losers.

She isn't fearing for the future or bravely standing up for some important principle, she just has sore-loser-itis. Why is this not the way her actions have been framed?

Hmm -- a job offer from PSAC. I actually thought she might have difficulty finding employment after this, but a job with PSAC sounds just about right. I have no doubt she will get her comeuppance. The cynical union mentality is so appropriate in this case. PSAC is exactly what she deserves.

Posted by: MaryLS at June 5, 2011 10:24 PM

I have no doubt that she is merely the tool in this well crafted piece of theater. It wouldn't surprise me if some UofZero profs were behind this whole scheme. Will the PMO get the RCMP to quietly investigate? probably...

There are a lot of once-complacent leftards who never thought a conservative majority was going to happen because they believed in their 'public opinion' polls. Now they're striking back like spoiled children, and only showing how foolish they've been all along. We're seeing the fruits of the Trudeau/Cretian Regime suddenly having to face the fact that they're not in power anymore and no longer have the support of centrist Canada. This sort of petulance is just the start of a four year temper tantrum.

She is a hero.

The fact that Harper got the most vote (40%) is not an indication that he is legitimate. In the middle ages, the fact that the majority of people thought the earth was flat didn't mean the earth was actually flat. The majority is often wrong and must be educated. This is Canada in 2011, same thing.

I don't advocate violence. I think a canadian arab spring is a metaphor to indicate a kind of political war against these evil and offensive ideas of Harper.

A kind of anti haper canadian tea party.

Vive Jack Layton.

You better watch out cause if Layton is not elected PM in 4 years, I'll become separatist again.

I find it hilarious that the left is hailing her as a hero and a "true Canadian patriot". But lets just spin this around for a second: lets say it was Layton sitting to the right of the Governor General having his throne speech read. If a young right-mided page did the exact same thing the left would be in uproar about how those actions are a disgrace to the parliamentary system, just wants attention, disrespectful brat, etc etc. The hypocrisy from them is unbelievable.

Posted by: south side at June 5, 2011 11:33 PM

Okay quebecois ndp, if we take your argument as being your firm position of what constitutes legitimacy, i have two questions for you:

1. How many of the ndp MPs are legitimate - iow they got more than fifty percent of the vote on may 2? And further to that, if the turnout of voters was in the low fifties (as, if memory serves, was the case in a large number of quebec ridings) even with fifty percent of the votes, less than fifty percent of those eligible voted for the ND candidate.

2. And in the 'fifty plus one position on sovereignty' supported by the NDP - is that fifty plus one of those who voted or those who were eligible to vote? If it's the former, then the argument can be made that that is not a legitimate mandate. (for the record it think that the former is legitimate, but then I also think that 40% or what ever percent was needed to form a majority under the rules is a legitmate majority mandate)

...
And the (idle) threat that you will be come a separatist (again - as if - you gutless pansy - there are hard-boiled separatists like parizeau who in have a lot of respect for - you aren't one of them) then don't wait, become on now, their is not a chance in heck that the NDP will become the ruling party.

To the contrary - it is now highly probable that they will become a regional - Quebec only - party to go along with its far left fringe character.

OTOH, she also isn't a bitch, cnut or any other equally immature name. She's just a silly, spoiled kid. She reminds me of new engineering graduates who start off as arrogant know-it-alls. I am sure that, like them, she'll settle down once she starts paying her own bills and working with people who don't think she is a special as she thinks she is.

an insight into the sickness at the heart of your ideology... Again: you just won an election. A young girl holds up a sign and you call her a "cnut" and a "beeyotch" - filling this thread and another 100-comment thread with hatred for her.

That's merely the personal opinion of a relatively small group of Right Wing Nut Jobs who only know how to attack the people they dislike. They can't grasp the issues, but they know who they hate. It doesn't represent the majority opinion of the people who voted a Conservative majority government. Every ideology attracts a radical fringe, but we believe strongly enough in the freedom of speech to let them rant without muzzling them. Most of us conservatives don't take them seriously and no one else should either.

Posted by: North_of_60 at June 6, 2011 1:29 AM

I see that the Leftist drones are wide awake early Monday morning! Yes, how absolutely terrible of us "Right Wing Nut Jobs" to care about DEMOCRACY and LAW & ORDER. How terrible of us!

You folks should start reading a little history, particularly the details of how Yugoslavia lost its civil democracy. Ditto wrt Germany in the early 1930's. You might then wake-up for the first time in your lives and realize that democracy is not something to be toyed with, free of any care of the repercussions.

A favourite quote of mine is in order: "The beautiful thing about being on the Left is never having to apologize."

P.S. I have a great idea for you: Why don't you recruit your hero, Michael Moore, to become leader of the Liberal Party in 2 years when Bob Rae's term is up!

Posted by: Robert W. (Vancouver) at June 6, 2011 2:38 AM

The girl is misguided for sure....Ok, she had a stop sign placard that said "Stop Harper". How far away is that from a gun in her hand and "Stop Harper"....Just saying.....Where was security...I know she was a Page and trusted but I ask again, where was Security....All that was needed was a few less brain cells and a little more leftist fervor...Somebody in security should be held accountable...

Rick, you make an interesting point. Right after the election there was this. The anti-democracy, totalitarian thugs who prefer to be called "Progressives" said this was nothing.

Now the 21 year old twit has no problem thinking that her views are more important than millions upon millions of her fellow Canadians.

What's next? Whatever it is, through it all, the Leftards, such as the trolls we've seen above, will excuse it all as "just" and "noble" and "righteous". And yes, I fear that would include attacking a Conservative politician.

Such people are the dregs of our society, cockroaches who have been told over & over again that they no longer need to be accountable for their actions. This recent episode exemplifies that to the hilt!

Posted by: Robert W. (Vancouver) at June 6, 2011 2:58 AM

the types here who revel in this sort of infantile hatred and the various forms it takes - sexism, racism, homophobia.

"Not Patricia" has every right to be as gay as he/she wants, however to assume that people who find that practice detestable are in any way afraid of faggots is just silly. Dont confuse fear i.e. -phobia, with disgust i.e. -misia. The correct term is homomisia. It's like dog-shit on my shoe, I might find it disgusting, but I'm certainly not aftraid of it. It washes off easily.

The PSAC would be wise to keep a close watch on this girl during her employment with them. She has not proven herself to be trustworthy or loyal. She appears to want to promote herself above all else-a huge red flapping flag.

PSAC may want to consider installing software at her workstation that alerts to the copying or forwarding of sensitive internal documents and monitors email/internet activity. Limit her usage of thumb/pen/usb drives. Check on her when she is using the photocopier. Also, items may go missing from the supply room. Give her a long probation period - at least 6 months. Don't leave her alone in the office. She will probably become bored before the 6 months is up anyway.

It looks pretty clear the sign had been folded up so I assume it was folded and stuffed undeneath her vest.

But fair question. If you look around at that picture you see how unaware anyone at the front is and you get some that are aware a little closer to her.

It is absolutley a position of trust and she broke it big time. I would have been equally upset if a "conservative" page had done someting similar under Martin or Chretien.

Not Patricia: "But of course Harper has a history of playing up to the homophobes with his appearances at anti-gay marriage rallies ..."

Uh, what "anti-gay marriage rallies" would you be referring to? I'm not aware of any "anti-gay marriage rallies" having taken place in Canada or Prime Minister Harper's attendance at them.

You need to provide proof of this fantasy of yours. 'Only in your dreams ...? I thought so.

DePape represents an odious segment of our body politic, which mules and whines and has a tantrum because their side didn't win. She's continually lied about the Harper government's not having garnered "3/4s of the vote," on CBC, on CTV, etc., and she wasn't challenged.

Guess what, sweetie, Chretien's last majority government got only 39% of the vote. I didn't hear any squawks from like-minded twits. With five horses in the race, no party was likely to get over 50% of the vote. The Harper government won fair and square in the parliamentary system under which Canada operates.

'You have a problem, Mlle DePape and No Patricia? Then work hard to change it -- not with juvenile tactics like STOP HARPER signs at the Throne Speech, but with real grassroots pounding-the-pavement hard work. Oh. I get it. That's too hard. That will take too long. You want instant results.

patricia - what childish comments.

No-one is threatened by the page; what we are talking about was her disrespect for parliament and for all the electorate who vote in the CPC and Harper. Respect for the rule of law and its democracy are important. To us. Possibly not to you?
But then, you seem to delight in childish actions (pie in the face tactics). I suggest some maturity.

Second - as adults and not children, we also respect facts and reality. Therefore, kindly provide evidence for 'Harper 'playing up to the homophobes' and 'appearance at anti-gay marriage rallies'.

Oh, and evidence of our racism, sexism, homophobia.
Patricia - it's time to be an adult: facts, evidence, respect for the law and for the people in democracy.

quebecois separatiste- your 'flat earth' analogy is false. An election is a rational choice of a political party; one doesn't choose facts (earth's form) but gains scientific knowledge.

And when/if Quebec leaves, remember, it must accept its share of the national debt. And no Canadian passport or currency goes with it. And no, all the funds and jobs in Montreal and Hull from the federal govt will go.

That means that a lot of those civil service jobs are gone..which is a heavy proportion in Quebec! That means, that most of your socialist lifestyle, which is primarily funded by the ROC, will..whoosh..disappear. Oh, and the milk quote will be gone. And northern Quebec as well. But, please, feel free to go. You want to stand on your own feet? Oh...about time. Please do so.

Posted by: The Glengarrian at June 6, 2011 12:18 PM

patricia - supporting the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman is not a homophobic act!

Marriage is a universal socioeconomic institution primarily established for the maintenance of our species by enabling a 'next generation'. Socially and economically enabling a next generation. The family is supposed to produce, nurture and socialize the next generation.

To change this definition of marriage into one based only on 'this generation' and ignore the 'next generation' misunderstands the societal function of marriage.

If people of the same sex want to bond for 'this generation companionship' - that's their business. But it's not marriage. Therefore, why do such people want to define it as marriage? Ah..for the economic benefits? Not for the ideological overtone?

Again - please provide specific factual evidence of Harper as 'homophobic'. And, specific factual evidence of 'sexism' and 'racism'. Remember, Patricia - be accountable.

And, Patricia, conservatives here in the US and Canada want our government to move out of social issues - and stick to the economy, defense, currency, communications etc. Societal issues - in their non-economic nature, such as marriage, abortion, etc - are best left to the people in their local areas. That's why, for example, Harper has refused to 'bring up the abortion issue'.

Now - how about those examples of homophobia, racism and sexism?

Posted by: ET at June 6, 2011 12:54 PM

Someone should have taken the time ask her one simple question: "Stop Harper from doing what?"

I strongly suspect that she would have been stuck for an answer. As a previous poster accurately pointed out, she can be compared to a simpleton running onto a football field or a baseball diamond.

Oh ... Not Patricia. No one here is "threatened" by her actions. Read the comments before taking what you consider to be clever jabs. Your commentary is far from clever. However, it is mildly amusing.

The reason the little twit is saying that 3/4 of Canadians voted against Harper is that there was 60% turnout and 40% of the turnout voted for Harper, which is 24% of Canadians. This is the loony left's latest rationalization for what they term as a lack of democracy when it comes to the election.

Of course, the fact that Chretien could only gather about 22% in his last election, according to their criteria, is irrelevant to these morons.
