Canada's very own Helen Thomas...

libbytankMeet Libby the Tank Engine.

**********

UPDATE: Runaway Libby shut down

“No member of our caucus, whatever other title they have, is allowed to invent their own policy,” said NDP deputy leader Thomas Mulcair.

“We take decisions together, parties formulate policies together, and to say that you’re personally in favour of boycott, divestment and sanctions for the only democracy in the Middle East is, as far as I’m concerned, grossly unacceptable.”
So, in the end... I guess Israel actually owes Libby a thank you.

Gotta love that.

It infuriates me to think, Canada allowed this woman to immigrate here. Her whole life as a university drop out has been dedicated to being a smug little fascist, and doing her best never to actually holding a real job! Fire her! Even if it's just simply to see what she'd try to do to support herself!

This "completely inadvertent (cough) error" should occasion a "completely advertent" firing of her ass outta here.

"rich says... 'completely inadvertent'"

that's actually the official motto of the ndp, isn't it?

1.)Gadget sez: "[...] Canada allowed this woman to immigrate here."

I think Libby claimed status as a refugee fleeing from Thatcherism.

2.) Libby can always get a job at CUPE.

How very brave of Libby to stand on guard for the very people who'd "chastise" her right smartly for her sexual orientation if she lived along side them in Gaza. However, she could always seek refuge in Israel as other Gaza homosexuals have done. And she would... in a nanosecond!

"anne says... stand on guard for the very people who'd "chastise" her"

yup... chastise her terminally.

that's what i don't get about the 'queers against israeli apartheid'... they tried to mount their little parade in any muslim country that i know about... they would surely be maimed or killed.

duh.

That's because you're not using your circular logick, Neo.

The situation in Gaza is all Israel's fault. Muslims can't be held responsible for their anti-gay laws or actions because they are being repressed and... whatever... by Israel.

I've listened to enough of their speeches and workshops to know that logic, reason and facts have no bearing whatsoever on the statements and philosophy of groups such as Queers Against Israeli Apartheid.

My personal opinion is that they are all stupid dupes (Women's Studies grads, etc.) of the people at organizations such as Palestine House.
