Libby Davies – Here We Go Again

Canada’s own Helen Thomas, New Democrat MP Libby Davies, is in hot water from the reigning Conservative gov’t and opposition Liberals after remarks she made questioning Israel’s legitimacy:

When asked, “When do you believe that the occupation in Israel started — ‘48 or 67?” Davies says 1948, the year Israel became a state.

“The only conclusion you can draw from what she said is that there is no legitimacy to Israel’s existence since 1948,” said Liberal MP Bob Rae.

“Someone who would say such a thing and who would mouth these words and says these things should not have a serious political office in a major political party.”

Davies had posted a letter on her website apologizing for her remarks last week, and insisting her answer was little more than an honest mistake.

“My reference to the year 1948 as the beginning of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory was a serious and completely inadvertent error,” she wrote.

“I apologize for this and regret any confusion it has caused.”

But Harper used the incident as cannon fodder in the fight with the NDP over Afghan detainee documents, likening her position on the Middle East to the NDP’s refusal to go along with Tuesday’s agreement on how best to bring Parliament into the loop on the detainee paper trail.

When Layton accused Harper of hiding the truth by refusing to freely release all the documents, Harper turned the tables.

“The only person hiding the truth here is the leader of the NDP, who has a deputy leader and a House leader who says that Israel’s existence inside its pre-1967 boundaries is an occupation,” Harper said during Question Period.

Harper then likened Davies to longtime Washington journalist Helen Thomas, who was forced to retire last week after saying Jews should leave Israel and go back to Poland or Germany.

“The member of the NDP who said that should be forced to resign as well,” Harper said.

Layton said Davies had apologized, and neither she nor the NDP denies Israel’s right to exist.

Apologized for what exactly?

It always amazes The Mayor when asked about Israel, how articulate leftists are in their opinions. But the SECOND there is any blowback about their views, they immediately curl up like a salt laden slug and take the “no hablo inglis” position. For the love of any God but the Christian God, take a freakin’ stance and stick to it.

It’s all on video, Libby Davies at a ANTI-Israel rally, there was a PROTESTER with a sign that read “The world says NO to Israel OCCUPATION” standing right beside her, and when the guy with the camera asks Libby a question about Israel, she answers, *This is the longest OCCUPATION in the world”.

It doesn’t get any more cut & dry than that, does it?

So to say there was some sort of confusion and misunderstanding, well, that’s simply ridiculous. The only confusion is in Libby Davies pea-sized brain.

Make no mistake about it, Libby Davies may be the dumbest person EVER to enter Canadian politics. She is an embarrassment and a complete dim bulb. She deserves preferential parking spots at malls. Sorry, I lost where I was going with this.

Anyway, being dumb is one thing, but to apologize for something you believe in is plain pathetic. I can excuse dumb, people don’t generally have a choice in that matter, but I can’t excuse pathetic, it disgusts me and shows me what a weak reptile Libby Davies is.

As for Stephen Harper and the Liberal Attack Machine®, they might want to reconsider calling for Davies resignation over this matter. Especially considering Harper has no problem bringing in about 200,000 immigrants every year that believe EXACTLY the same thing as what Libby Davies thinks she may or may not believe depending on who’s listening and which way the wind’s blowing. If we follow Harper’s lead and call for the firings of every person who believes what Libby Davies believes, well, there will be a hell of a lot of job openings come tomorrow.

And as for the liberals, they might want to watch what they’re saying, too. If Rae and The Count now believe the same thing Harper does, it’ll get real interesting come election time when all those liberals who are looking for votes in Scarborough, Mississauga, Milton, etc, come a-callin’ on all those new Moslem neighbourhoods. You see, word on the street tells The Mayor that there are quite a few Moslems that have some sort of problem with the Jews. I don’t what problem, give me a second to Google it.

My point is this: Harper and the liberals should shut their mouths. This is still a democracy, and even though Davies is about as smart as a chunk of cinderblock, she still has every right to say what she said. I just wish though she’d wear a burqa so we didn’t have to look at that rat-chewed face of hers.

The end. Now, let’s dance!

    Never get in the way of an NDP’er making themselves look like an ass.?
    I don’t know the original phrase, but I think this woman needs a bullhorn.

    I fully agree, that she shouldn’t be apologizing for something she and her party have long fought for. The socialists have an equal right to spew.

  2. The Mayor Says:

    Take that back and apologize, Marc!

  3. marc in calgary Says:

    She was already wearing a bullhorn? I’m sorry.
    I guess I missed that she’s wearing a life preserver too. I’m sorry.
    *pre-emptive deletion here* I’m sorry.
    I’ve seen photos of Californian people that are trying to shoplift turkeys and hams in december…. I’m sorry.
    Are you late a day for “Hottie or Nottie” ? I’m sorry.
    Is she very very pregnant? I’m sorry.
    Any idea of what a fold that big smells like? I’m very sorry.

    She probably meant 1925, which saw the establishment of the two-state theory.


  5. dmorris Says:

    If you’re going to do a post about an NDP politician, why do you show a photo of a manatee immediately under the headline?

    I almost mistook this for the Wild Kingdom site,( with your host Marlin Perkins).

  7. cudgel Says:

    Seriously, she has a lovely body…for a manatee.

  8. nancy Says:

    Would ya’ll like to adopt her? You can for 35$

  9. Stalin knows Says:

    I’m glad Libby decided to wear the loose pink gown, it is so slimming and matches the gay pride headband so well.

    BTW is Libby gay again, I can never keep up with that story. Perhaps Hamas could confirm that and comment how they feel about gaydom.

    Libby represents the poorest postal code in Canada, not so poor that there is not plenty of food available though. Keep voting NDP morons you are keeping her fat and happy.

  10. Godless Commie Says:

    Every day of the year, the Tory and Liberal candidates from the last election say to themselves, “I actually lost to THAT???!!!!”

  11. Andy Says:

    Even though I know zero about Canadian politics…well, not really zero, and have no idea who this lovely gal is…

    I agree, Mayor! God, I get so sick of people eternally apologizing for their strongly held positions. I mean, on the left and on the right.

    Mean what you say, say what you mean, and by God don’t back up when the fur starts flying! We’re living in a world of pansies. Believe you me, the public is READY for some leaders with a spine.

  12. nancy Says:

    I agree too, but you have to measure first what’s really worth saying and why.
    Is it a personal conviction, or opinion.

    ..”You got to know when to hold ‘em, and know when to fold ‘em.”

    Fatso was bluffin’, and had to eat it.

    My bet’s solid on Beulah Land…scattered no sad goodbyes.
