Commentary: The termination of candidates by Stephen Harper

NDP federal candidate Katherine Swampy (picture left) posing with her husband who is sporting gang tattoos and another gang member (does he have a legal handgun license?) who is pointing a handgun at the camera. Swampy's social media account (picture right) full of threats, spelling errors, and profanities. (I partially censored the worst of the profanities as I prefer not to have them on my wall). Tom Mulcair is calling for Jagdish Grewal's removal from the Conservative Party of Canada candidacy for politely objecting to a Bill introduced in the Ontario legislature to outlaw Reparative Therapy, meanwhile he believes Swampy is fit to represent the NDP.

“If it is a parent’s right to set guidelines for their children in terms of their education, career and health, then why is it illegal for them to strengthen their natural heterosexuality?” Jagdish Grewal. NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal leader Justin Trudeau called on "Conservative" Prime Minister Stephen Harper to expel Jagdish Grewal from representing the Conservative Party in the upcoming election, because he wrote an article objecting to the banning of reparative therapy for homosexuals. Harper promptly obliged and threw this worthy candidate under the bus.

Mulcair never removed his Alberta candidate Katherine Swampy even though her social media account was littered with profanities, which included direct personal profanity laden attacks on individuals. Worse than the numerous F-bombs and almost illiterate spelling on Swampy's account, was the photo of Swampy's husband sporting native gang tatoos and a picture of a man beside him with what appeared to be a handgun pointed at the camera.

More disturbing than Swampy's poor judgment and her husband's apparent criminality (normal people don't wear gang tattoos and pose in photos with handguns pointed at the camera in a gangster pose), is the media's silence about this highly controversial candidate and the NDP's decision to keep her.

Yet Jagdish Grewal politely gives an opinion about homosexuality (an opinion supported by research that is aggressively and dishonestly suppressed by homosexual activists) and he is booted from the so-called Conservative Party. Shame.....

It seems to me most Christians and others who agree with Jagdish Grewal's position (or at least believe Jagdish should be able to articulate his belief on this topic and still be able to participate in Canada's public life) will still vote for the not very Conservatives thinking they will somehow respect their consciences and freedom of speech more than the Liberals or NDP.

Dear Christians and social conservatives, how many terminations of social conservative candidates or staff who express opinions you actually agree with (or at least you recognize should fall into the category of a valid opinion in a democracy) have to occur before you realize the Conservative Party of Canada does not represent you?

Of course part of the problem here is the double standard of the lamestream media, which unfortunately does have the power to influence how people vote. No doubt most of you who read my blog will not have heard of Katherine Swampy's scandalous posts. You won't know about her gangster husband posing with a fellow gang member pointing a handgun, nor her illiterate, profanity ridden rants which were part of her social media profile until recently. You won't be aware of the bigger scandal that the NDP is keeping her while simultaneously demanding that Conservative candidates be terminated for expressing themselves in politically incorrect ways that are still light years ahead of Swampy's self expression. You won't know because the national media is ignoring Swampy's scandal. CBC has only covered Swampy as an alleged victim of racism, they never told the public about her profanity ridden posts or gang affiliations.

If Harper decided to keep Grewal and argued a principled and true argument that Grewal is a better quality candidate than Swampy (not nearly as hateful as her), and that his beliefs on reparative therapy for young homosexuals with unwanted homosexual attractions is not incompatible with public office (especially if gang connections and profanity ridden rants are not incompatible) than all of us would hear about Grewal's alleged homophobic offense in the media everyday until election day and beyond. If Harper refused to dismiss Grewal, his stand would not be portrayed as a defense of freedom of speech or conscience in the media, it would be spun as "proof" that Harper and the Conservatives are supporters of bigotry and therefore unfit to hold office. Harper knows this and he is pragmatic, hence good men and women are thrown under the bus as soon as the media barks about politically incorrect speech crimes, no matter how old, obscure, innocuous, or even if they are reasonable and true.

It would take tremendous effort, but if enough social conservative Canadians were willing to donate time, treasure and effort; it could be worthwhile to organize and target individual media outlets who have proven records of this bigoted double standard coverage of political candidates. If even a thousand Christian and other social conservative Canadians could be motivated to launch telephone, letter writing, and in strategic situations, picketing campaigns against major media advertisers or public events where the media outlet attends and participates in a high profile fashion; we could force the offending media outlets to become less partisan and bigoted in their coverage and simultaneously educate the wider public that much of the election coverage they get is spin, cover up (for NDP), and hatchet jobs (for any candidate with a socially conservative viewpoint), and that this is not necessarily a good way to determine how one should cast their ballot.

Is anyone out there interested in doing anything about this injustice that is adversely effecting our democracy and severely hindering good social conservatives from participating in our allegedly democratic process and in some cases even harming their gainful employment? Or do you still prefer to just complain once in awhile on Facebook and go play video games or spend quiet evenings with your family while the media and compromised "conservatives" in conjunction with doctrinaire socialists insure only those with values hostile to the culture of life and real freedom attain and retain power?

Conservatives dump candidate who called homosexuality ‘unnatural’ and supported conversion therapy
Jennifer Ditchburn,
The Canadian Press | October 6, 2015

OTTAWA — The Conservative party says a candidate in suburban Toronto who defended therapies that attempt to turn gays straight is no longer an official candidate for the party.

Jagdish Grewal, who is running in Mississauga-Malton, wrote an editorial entitled “Is it wrong for a homosexual to become a normal person?” that referred to homosexuality as “unnatural behaviour” and heterosexuals as “normal.”

A party spokeswoman said Tuesday night that Grewal’s comments “are not reflective of the views of the Conservative Party of Canada.”

“We believe that all Canadians — regardless of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation — deserve to be treated with respect and dignity,” Megan Murdoch said in an email.

In the Punjabi Post editorial earlier this year, Grewal describes an NDP private member’s bill passed in the Ontario legislature in June that removed public funding for services designed to “change or direct the sexual orientation or gender identity of a patient.”

Grewal writes in the piece that some psychologists blame a “shock” during childhood for causing a person to become gay, but that the change “can be corrected.”

“The political competition of today raises the question of whether any person’s wish to become a normal person is wrong?” Grewal wrote in Punjabi.

If it is a parent’s right to set guidelines for their children in terms of their education, career and health, then why is it illegal for them to strengthen their natural heterosexuality?

Grewal said in an interview Tuesday that he was attempting to educate readers about an issue in the news and lay out the positions taken by the provincial parties and psychologists. He said he did not recall the names of the psychologists he mentioned.

In the editorial, he points to the Alliance for Therapeutic Choice and Scientific Integrity, an American group that offers therapies to people who have “unwanted homosexual attractions.”

“Yes, there’s children who have tendencies, who are attracted,” Grewal said in the interview. “If that child wants to come back or tell the parents that he wants to get out of this life, then parents should have the right to bring them back to their straight life.”

Grewal’s editorial does not address professional criticism of so-called reparative or conversion therapies. The Canadian Pediatric Society’s position on adolescent sexual orientation states that such treatments “should not be provided because they do not work and have the potential to heighten guilt and anxiety.”

High-profile Ontario Progressive Conservatives supported the private member’s bill when it came to a vote.

In Surrey, B.C., NDP Leader Tom Mulcair held a unscheduled media availability late Tuesday to call for Grewal’s removal as a candidate.

“That type of statement is so totally inadmissible there’s only one possible outcome: Mr. Harper has to fire that candidate,” said Mulcair, who had earlier taken to Twitter to denounce Grewal’s “homophobic” comments.

Grewal is just the latest in a series of unacceptable comments by Conservative candidates, Mulcair said, noting that Harper has signed the nomination papers of Tory incumbents John Williamson and Larry Miller. Williamson complained last March that “brown people” were taking white people’s jobs and Miller told a call-in radio show that Muslim women who don’t want to remove their face-covering veils during citizenship ceremonies should go back to where they came from.

“Mr. Harper’s got to start getting it right and it starts by firing this candidate who said those things that are totally unacceptable about gays,” Mulcair said.

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau also called for Grewal’s removal.

“There is no place for offensive and homophobic statements. The Conservatives should apologize and Stephen Harper needs to remove this candidate,” Trudeau said in a statement issued by the party.

Grewal is running against Liberal Navdeep Bains, a former MP who is also an organizer for the party in the Toronto area. Dianne Douglas, a former municipal executive assistant, is running for the NDP.

A campaign pamphlet recently spotted in the riding, with the fine print, “Authorized by the official agent for Jagdish Grewal,” features a picture of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne at the Toronto Pride parade. The slogan reads, “Are these the priorities of your family?”

In another picture, a piece of paper is superimposed onto Bains’ hand. The paper reads “Liberal priorities: Sex Education, Gay Marriage, Legalize Marijuana and Prostitution.”
Grewal says the flyer is not from his campaign.

There has been opposition to the Ontario government’s new sexual education curriculum from within some ethnic communities. The new content addresses sexual orientation and gender identity and homophobia. Children in Grade 1 will be taught the correct names of body parts.

Earlier this year, Wynne said she believed the federal Conservatives were using sex ed as a political wedge issue in the province in advance of the election.

Grewal says he’s been getting an earful from people in the Muslim, Sikh and Hindu communities upset by the curriculum.

“There are families who are keeping their kids at home, they’re not sending them to school they’re so frustrated with this,” said Grewal. “They don’t talk about any other issues. This is their biggest issue at the time at the door.”

Bains disagrees, saying people understand that a federal MP has no power to shape a provincial education plan.

“Unemployment is high, higher than the national average, youth unemployment is high and people are worried about the economy, worried about jobs,” Bains said of the riding. “Those are the issues that matter.”

If even ten thousand Canadians who will vote CPC this election, but who hold values similar to Jagdish Grewal, abandon the party that does not represent them and joins this party as a statement that they will not vote for a Party that holds their values in disdain; the CPC would be forced to take notice and the CHP would be that much more equipped to deliver its life, faith, family and freedom affirming message to the wider Canadian audience.
