Jagmeet Singh, the Trudeau Liberals’ new best friend

Even as the last gasps of the year wheezed from the lungs of 2017, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh was already a spent political force.
Actually, “force” is too strong a word. He’s more of a spent thought.
With four recent byelections seeing federal NDP support sink even lower than the wading-pool depths of 2015, it is becoming more apparent that average Canadians are not quite ready yet to embrace the new NDP leader, even one as photogenic, flashy and fluently bilingual in both official languages as the non-MP from Toronto.
Yes, there’s that, too. Singh doesn’t have a seat in the House of Commons and seems to see no reason yet to seek one.
And, then there is that not-so-forgotten clip following his leadership victory when Jagmeet Singh would not categorically denounce the Sikh extremism still lying within Canada that bombed Air India Flight 182 out of the sky in 1985.
(Jagmeet is a typical loonie leftie politician- trying to hunt with the hounds and run with the hare- so to speak. His evasive duplicity on the subject of Sikh extremists will NOT serve him well on a world stage - as Our idiot Boy Justin has discovered during his disastrous India trip! Indian govt is at daggers drawn with Sikhs and Jagmeet will simply fan the flames higher with his dangerous and entirely hypocrite values!)
Such non-committal over something so cowardly and criminal tends to make ordinary folks more than just a little wary, and possibly even a little suspect of one’s primary allegiances.
When the CBC’s Terry Milewski asked Singh if he would condemn the current glorification of the bombers within certain segments of the Sikh community — with heroic adulation being expressed in posters — Singh condemned the question but avoided the answer.
As he described it later, “I think it was definitely some sort of clear problematic line of thought behind that question,” he said. “It was offensive to me that that was even a question.”
(Oh sure- nuclear armed India is in a military standoff with nuclear armed Pakistan and also with Sikh terrorists adding to the tension- and Sikh Jagmeet Singh- with his not so subtle support of Sikh extremists along with his desire to be our prime minister cannot see why we ought to be uneasy with his values? How big a hypocrite is he really?)
Those who rallied to Singh’s defence claimed two things. One, that Air India was old news. And that, two, the same question would not have been asked of Justin Trudeau or Tom Mulcair.
If Trudeau or Mulcair were Sikhs, the same question would have definitely been asked of them as it was of Singh.
Air India, its main perpetrators never charged, is not something that has an expiry date simply because 32 years have passed.
(This IS standard leftist habit- hoping we have short memories and will forget much that ought to be remembered- and held against them! Recently Jagmeet told us he was in favour of “tax fairness” and wanted to spend big on infrastructure- without going to the trouble of telling us WHERE the money would come from? Should we assume that Jagmeet plans to introduce a national version of the notorious RAE DAYS that so devastated Ontari-owe? And does Jagmeet not understand that his opponent- the idiot Boy Justin has ALREADY claimed that insane tax and spend and borrow till they ban you position? Muddle headed Jag is offering us a choice between mad LIE-beral spending and really mad NDP spending! Civil service Hogs who think the entire world belongs to them WILL be pleased! Too bad it looks as if ordinary Cdns are about to come out en masse to demonstrate their rage with vote buying LIE-berals- and NDPers may get caught up too! )
Some 329 people, including 268 Canadian citizens, were killed in that bombing, so the question asked by Milewski was legit.
Let’s not forget, too, that Conservative leader Andrew Scheer was critically questioned about the depth of his Roman Catholicism, and how it would affect his policy decisions.
Jagmeet Singh’s quick descent from the new-age heir to Jack Layton’s mantle to a spent political thought could not be worse news for the Conservatives, or better news for the Trudeau Liberals.
The prime minister spent the last days of 2017 flapping around like a flounder, meeting with alleged terror captive Joshua Boyle, offering in one year-end interview that ISIS returnees will somehow contribute to Canadianism, and then embarrassingly fumbling over an answer to questions about his historic guilt regarding ethics breaches.
(Given known Turdope family hostility to what papa Pierre called “Cdn imperialism” it is a safe bet that Our idiot Boy really believes returning Isis fighters will help......HIM!)
If the Liberals were worried the NDP would be eating into their leftist ethos, thereby splitting the progressive vote in 2019, then their worries are over.
It’s Jagmeet Singh to their rescue.
If there is a time for Singh to shine, it’s when the Commons returns at January’s end. The Liberals are bogged down in mud, and the prime minister’s ethics convictions will be atop the oppositions’ playlist.
(Face it- Jagmeet is not just yesterdays man- even before he became NDP leader- he is also the man who never was and never will be KING!)
Yet there will be no Jagmeet Singh in Question Period to display what the NDP faithful and lefty swing voters hope will be a well-tuned, quick-of-wit politician brimming with charisma and confidence.
(Singh appears to be playing a careful game here- He apparently holds views that make LIE-berals look halfway sane- with Singh not wanting the general public to get a close look at him- and hoping that the Cdn “Middle Class” that has NOT gotten the shower of gravy promised by LIE-berals may turn to him in frustration! In short we can probably count on NDPers NOT to tell us their full party platform- they hunt with the hounds and run with the hare! And NDPers wonder why we don’t trust them to lead us! HAHAHAHA!!!! We expect politicians to exaggerate- we do NOT expect them to spend the entire day spinning political policy yarns! )
Singh may think he is ready, but he’s not showing it.
If he were, he would have been champing at the bit to run in the first byelection that came up, not lying in the weeds.
The Commons’ next session is going to be a hot one.
But Singh won’t be sitting in.
