The NDP and Race Calling
WHAT PART DOES IT PLAY IN ALBERTA POLITICS
More and more the inclusion of “racist “ and “racism” is being used in Alberta conversations today. Much of that inclusion is promoted by the Alberta NDP, and its leader Rachel Notley. The NDP hold regular “Race Equity Caucus” Mix and mingle fundraisers, tickets $25.00 and Youth/Un-/Under-waged, “Race Equity Caucus” mingle and mixes, tickets $20.00. The above meetings were advertised for Friday November 15th, 2019. It might be that the NDP needed this type of mingle as in 2015 they had the lowest minority rating of a government since 1993.
In mid October 2020, The UCP said it was going to end approximately 11,000 Alberta Health Services jobs. There was a hue and cry from the NDP and health care people province wide. The accusations and rhetoric that took place was deafening. The news and online media were full of AHS job cuts, Wildcat strikes, why the very peaks of the Alberta Rockies started to crumble from the rumblings. It was less than 30 years ago Ralph Klein had to make a decision on whether to bankrupt Alberta or save it. He wisely chose to save Alberta from a burden of debt. (Ralph let health care spending rise while he was in office). Today Jason Kenny has to grab the reins and slow down the lumbering out of control health care system again. Not an easy task, with all the meat for brains people out there.
Actual Alberta health care spending is going to increase by 1% annually over the next 3 years. With population growth and low inflation that boils down to about a 1 or 2% cut, but this is a needed, and is a steady approach to debt and deficit reduction. Unlike the spend crazy NDP and Rachel Notley who wanted to put Alberta into a hole we might never have gotten out of, we have a government that is at least going to show a little restraint. The UCP has said that it anticipates laying off none or very few front line workers, but did say about 800 positions would not be filled through attrition. Maybe you have if your a NDP believer, but I have never seen an Alberta Government lets it’s people die by the thousands. Not losing front line workers, is good news in a pandemic.
One the greatest howlers over the health care cuts was Rachel Notley. Health care workers got used to not taking a cut in wages while Rachel run the roost and she knew if she didn’t make a great outcry, she might stand to lose a few votes from the party faithful. True to form, Rachel let out enough CO-2 from her lungs to put Al Gore’s climate friendly jet to shame.
The NDP and Rachel Notley are socialists. If you want to live in a socialist run country, take your pick. China, Justin Trudeau’s favorite, Russia, the US Dems favorite bad guys, or Venezuela, everybody’s favorite place to starve, just don’t let Canada and especially Alberta turn into one of those far off holiday destinations.
Rachel Notley and the NDP have taken a cue from their southern socialist brothers and sisters, the Democrat’s, and added “Racist”, “Racism” and “People of Color” to there accusation arsenal in their fight to destroy conservatism. In mid October 2020 Rachel Notley spewed forth this emotional rhetoric to her fawning masses.
“It is a cheap, political tact designed to distract attention from the fact that this government just announced it was going to fire 11,000 hard-working — primarily women, primarily people of color — who go into our hospitals each and every day, put themselves at risk to keep our patients and our loved ones well fed and to keep those facilities clean and free — as much as possible — of the virus.
“Those people, Jason Kenney thinks their jobs don’t matter. Somehow, losing those 11,000 jobs won’t have an impact on our economy, especially not in the rural communities where they mostly reside,” she added.
This is a die hard socialist talking to her followers. the socialist takes a subject, from another, that they disagrees with and can make points off of, and then they degrade the essence of the subject. If the subject affects a group the socialist has cultivated for support, so much the better. Then if possible they will brag up the affected groups prestige with bountiful praise and give great credence to that groups importance, this is usually followed by a dreadful warning bestowing fear into people. In this case the fear is that, people are going to starve to death and die in a filthy, dirty environment if the health care workers are laid off. The utter mistruth of the above statement made by Racheal Notley is disgusting.
In the above statement Rachel Notley tries to tie the UCP party and its members to “Racism”, again, by saying that the Jason Kenney government is firing “Hard working — Primarily People of Color”. You can also see that she didn’t miss a beat when she also accused the UCP of firing “Primarily Women”. Wow a double whammy for the socialist. The above statement made by Rachel Notley is inflammatory and offensive to many people. Not only does Rachel accuse the Government and its supporters, You, of “Racism” for laying off “People of Color”, she also accuses you and the government of primarily laying off women. That makes you the UCP voter a misogynist also. Anybody with more than NDP sugar plums dancing in their head knows that the people working in the positions that are being eliminated are not predominantly white, and are predominantly held by women.
Can we forget this crowning moment of Notley’s career when she made this statement:
“I don’t believe that Jason Kenney is racist,” she said. “But, I do believe that the UCP, as a party, has a racism problem.”
If you voted UCP, you by the very words of Rachel Notley, are a “Racist”. The overwhelming number of people in Alberta that comment negatively on how governments are encouraging immigration from groups that are strikingly different in fundamental beliefs from the majority of Albertans, are not “Racist” and, don’t have a “Racism Problem”. They are just people that are concerned about the systematic erosion of their cultures and beliefs, by politicians like Rachel Notley and Justin Trudeau. Rachel like Justin Trudeau must both think “Budgets Balance Themselves” and that money grows on trees.
Here is a video that Rachel Notley must have listened to, taken to heart, and fashioned the NDP playbook from, as she uses the same tactics as used in the “Justin Trudeau Liberal Manifesto” outlined in the video to construct and introduce Albertans to the “Rachel Notley, NDP Socialist Manifesto” Click.
Rachel Notley was trained to be an activist/protester by her mother from her early childhood years, at that time, her mother used to drag her to activist rally’s and protest events.
Rachel Notley during her 2015 victory speech it was in the early 1970s, in Edmonton, with her mother Sandy. (Sandy was a well known activist in the USA before she married Rachel’s father)
“She took me on some anti-war demonstration. I honestly can’t even remember what it was,” said Notley in an interview.
“I remember walking across the High Level Bridge and thinking ‘Wow, this is really a very long walk.’ You know, I was a kid,” she laughed.
She was indoctrinated in the art of socialism by her father, a well known NDP socialist leader in Alberta. Socialism is an art, it takes a certain amount of training and discipline to perform properly. Part of Rachel’s victory speech below.
“Tonight, I also want to say that I’m also thinking about my mother and father. I know my mother would be completely over the moon about this. I think my dad would too. I’m sorry he couldn’t see this. This really was his life’s work but I can say this: I know how proud he’d be of the province we all love.”
Socialism is a political doctrine that teaches that, the production of goods, and services for the sustainability of life and profit should be run by a collective and that the collective is to be run by a group of governing people from the collective. The excess dividends made from production if any, are to be shared by the entire collective equally. Socialism has never worked in any country it was forced upon, or for that matter, any country that was tricked into thinking it would work. The governing group always turns into a dictatorship group.
In Alberta we have the NDP socialists, while not true socialists they practice what one might call Socialist Democracy. They are voted in on a hope and a whim, and then, they run the province by giving their followers all the perks, if there are to many rumblings opposing this practice, the democratic socialist will turn and try to appease the rumblings somewhat. If you remember the NDP did a 190 degree about face and started supporting oil and pipelines, as the trained socialist new this was the only way to quiet the rumblings and gain the rumbler’s support. Even then, she could not relinquish her training and imposed the “Carbon Tax”. Provinces have little or no say in Pipelines other than in their own province, no say in regulations for refineries, and absolutely no say in the price of oil. In respect to those things a politician like Rachel Notley can bash anyone or thing, opposing oil and pipelines, in an attempt to make herself look good in the eyes of the press and the blind. She threatened to stop BC wine sales in Alberta if the pipeline didn’t go through, my-o-my, we were all so proud of that, except maybe the wine drinkers.
Rachel Notley in her quest for true socialism, made Alberta a sister province with China’s Guangdong Province. (This is a bat province) A Click
Can you think of anything worse to lead Alberta other than a Socialist/Activist/Communist Lawyer, who has had their finger into government and union organization’s since leaving school?
