MPs Raymonde Folco, Carolyn Bennet, Rob Oliphant, Andrew Telegdi and Tom Wappel travelled to France at the invitation of Mojahedin e Khalq, or MEK, also known as the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran. The trips are detailed in travel reports submitted to the Ethics Commissioner for the years 2008 and 2009.
Bennett admitted that meeting with the group and accepting free travel from it carries risks. But she also said Canada needs to take a second look at the terror listing.
"Sometimes we need to take risks," Bennett said.
Bennett said she knows the group has a checkered past but that she will take them at their word when they say they want to bring democracy to Iran.
Yeah, sure. And maybe we'll achieve utopian paradise on Earth called "Gaia", and there'll be rainbow-farting unicorns prancing, Ferrari-logo-horse-style, all over the place as everyone will be happy and gay and the state will take care of everything for them and there'll be no bad people at all...
What we're seeing here is an example of Leftist Mental Disorder. They just WANT to BELIEVE that bad people are actually good... that you just need to "talk to 'em" and they'll be nice, or that it's our fault that they're bad or something...
When Saddam Hussein was in power, MEK received the majority of its financial support from the Iraqi regime. It also used front organizations, such as the Muslim Iranian Student’s Society, to collect money from expatriate Iranians and others, according to the State Department’s counterterrorism office. Iraq was MEK’s primary benefactor. Iraq provided MEK with bases, weapons, and protection, and MEK harassed Saddam’s Iranian foes. MEK’s attacks on Iran traditionally intensified when relations between Iran and Iraq grew strained. Iraq encouraged or restrained MEK, depending on Baghdad’s interests.
Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Palin' 'round with Saddamite terrorists.
In liberals/"progressives'" minds, everything they do is right, even when it'd be wrong for non-liberals to do it. It's all in the spin.
Warm and fuzzy ideological words can fool the lazy-minded into thinking that it's ok to treat hellbent evildoers as if they were innocent, sane and rational, sort of like how a gallon of powerful air freshener, profusely atomized throughout the room, can mask the stink of a fresh pile of soft turds. But, of course, if one bothers to look around rather than just closing their eyes and hearing/smelling the sugarcoaty rhetoric/odor, one will discover that the truth is something really awful and disgusting
Dr. Bennett is the same person who, I recall, cried and held her nose and voted against compensating the sufferers/victims of the Hep-C contamination of the blood supply due to governmental negligence. Rather than doing the right thing and quitting the Liberal Party and voting for what's right, she falsely justified doing something unethical, immoral and mean-spirited, with a few crocodile tears.
And now here she is again attempting to justify appeasing evildoers. She's not fooling me. This woman would rather do the easy thing than do the right thing.
Typical leftist-"progressive". They delusionally tell themselves and others that everything's ok as long as they "mean well". But knowing that one's doing something that's wrong, even while "meaning well" doing that which one knows all along is wrong... it doesn't work that way- it's illogical and doesn't make a wrong ok.
Guilt negates fake "well-meaning".
Also... "Progressive" propagandists will conveniently accuse me of "defending Iran", which I am NOT doing, but if they make this charge, then they're themselves saying that terrorism is ok. But the next moment, they'll turn around and fearmonger about imaginary, hypothetical, unseen, unfound "right-wing extremists" allegedly, hypothetically "committing anti-state terrorism" in response to "progressive" governmental policies, as if it requires the suspension of all "right-wing" peoples' rights in order to stop the "terrorism", though, in classic "progressive" double-standard fashion, they'll never accept any sort of violation of the rights of any Islamic supremacist terrorists, nor "progressive" extremist terrorists, let alone all of them.
This is yet another reason why we can't afford to have the Iffy Liberals in power in Canada, either as a minority/majority gov't, or in coalition with the NDP and separatist Bloc Quebecois.
