Amid rising unemployment and record debt, NDP’s Status of Women Minister wants to “build feminism” in Alberta; are tax free tampons next?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

The Alberta government is hiring! You have until the 15th of January to apply to be the new Executive of Director Gender Equality and Advancement in the Ministry for the Status for Women created by the NDP earlier this year.

Your very important duties will include making sure all tampons are tax free and stressing the importance of spelling "grrrrrrl power" with five r's.

I'm making that last part up. But the real responsibilities of this position are equally silly.

You must be able to lead "the transformation and impacting the culture of policy development and re-design through a gender equality and intersectionality lens across all Ministries." What?

All this for a cool $125,000 - $165,000 from the obedient proletariat.

But this is what Status of Women Minister, Shannon Phillips, said she'd do. She told the Calgary Herald way back in September she was going to build feminism in Alberta.

100,000 Albertans are out of work and companies that can, are pulling up stakes and leaving the province altogether. Alberta has record levels of debt. Is this special Ministry really necessary? Statistics say no.

The Status of Women Ministry is about problems we've already solved and the injustice of made up micro aggressions like charging sales taxes on tampons. Reality doesn’t support the cost of the Ministry nor does it justify giving a 1.6 million dollar budget and 8 staff to a director of Gender Policing and Grievance Mongering.

My women's issues are public safety, taxes and provincial credit downgrades. Same as everyone else in the province.

The NDP budget is a disaster. Over 50,000 are out of work. Investment is fleeing the province.

HOPELESS? I survived the ATTACK of the FEMNAZIS and Ministry of Women’s Equality in British Columbia, Canada.

They are just setting up their perpetual victim portfolios. There’s nothing like dividing the people, based on victimhood, as they try to incite more victims for votes. It’s just a lazy way of buying votes with the public’s money. This NDP government is shameful, and pathetically lacking in any real leadership skills, and they are void of any recognizable human emotion, with the exception of envy and greed. They hate the people who made this province great because they hate anyone prospering, except for themselves.

This indicates in spades just what a bunch of useless FFFnnnnn goofs these dippers are. To be concerned about this garbage and spend that kind of money on it when the provincial economy is melting down is just assinine. Well, NDP = ASSININE

Where do I apply? I can make up better non-words than intersectionality, besides I really like women and employ several of them with equal remuneration and advancement opportunities. This would be a dream job because it pays so much more than being an owner of a small business without all the worry of actually doing anything!

The levels of feminist narcissism seem to know no bounds. Now, there is a minister in the Alberta government who has decided she wants to do something else other than her portfolio responsibilities.

The dementia among the NDP scum is laughable because they really have no idea that they look foolish and irresponsible. But what can one expect of people who have spent all their lives working as professional-coddlers?

The Minister will soon learn what heated wrath feels like – she is just beginning to feel the pressure.

Boy did Sheila ever clean up nice for this report :)

No sense in me applying – I am male

My wife is too right wing – so that leaves her out

Only three more years and a bit and we can dismantle all of this bullshit.

I’m sending one of Nicole Arbour vids to Shannon Phillips weekly.
commented 2016-01-08 14:31:11 -0500
Peter Toth I am so shocked and disappointed in you…no actually there are so many people I am sending that vid to. Two of my favourite lines were, “Shut the fk up and go and start your own business, problem solved” and “The only reason you hate Barbie is because she’s pretty…you’re jealous of a doll, a doll!” The one about barbie having a job a car a house, great clothes and has Ken as an accessory was in the running also. There were others but I choose not to go into them here. She’s pretty funny. Made me guffaw!

In other words, hate men more.

Liza Rosie – Laura Kipnis has stated the absolute truth, and I pray that she holds her head high and ignores those fools who condemn her for it. Anyone with daughters needs to tell them exactly what this nanny government is up to, by implementing such blatant stupidity. Protect your daughters from these communist fools.

Shannon Phillips thinks she’s still on campus. Identity politics, and subscribing to this ‘culture of injury’ really isn’t a pretty look for Canadian politicians. These ‘children’ of the NDP, are supposed to be, responsible to all of us., taking their government position in service to the taxpayer seriously. They should act like adults if they want to be taken seriously. This job description is an insult to women and the whole taxpaying base as a whole. It is an abuse of power and a waste. Laura Kipnis says, “Feminism infantilizes women”. She is an educator in the states, being ostracised and accused of fostering rape culture because she talks plainly about the nonsense that is this ‘culture of injury’ and entitlement which ‘infantilizes’ women. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6luo4U0joO0

It is impossible to parody government because governement is parody.

We don’t need anymore dumbed down feminists like this twit, and we certainly don’t need the NDP to run interference for us by tilting the deck in our favour. We normal everyday women are already strong and able to fight our own battles. We certainly don’t need the NDP to cripple us and try to make us dependent on them, and stir up imaginary trouble of their own making. The NDP continue with their nanny crap to the detriment of society! Note to the NDP, we don’t need you at all. Step down and call an election and then you will hear what the real people think and believe. They certainly don’t put their faith in the party of destruction! A party of no nothing fools!

Generally it is the formation of these types of committees/departments that spawn and instill divisiveness throughout societies.
When first conjured up, the idea may seem cool, creative, different and new during a blue sky moment in a useless government committee meeting, these poorly crafted, in your face initiatives typically result in being more damaging to their cause than constructive.
On the other hand, supposing that the lead position is awarded to a transgender who is still attempting to confirm their identity, and the 8 staff are made up of an equal percentage of the LBGT community, plus straight males and females, who could argue.
What truly are women’s main issues of today? Defining them is probably a great place to start. And I’m sure with any luck, qualified, level minded politicians, using existing government processes can bring about any changes needed, without setting up a separate gov’t dept.

Yannie, aka Gordo Steele; the mindless multitudes are you and the job description. Why don’t you apply? You would be a shoe in since you already have your foot in your mouth.

How about gender equality in the education system?

I will be damned if the woman who gets the job is actually from Alberta.

What indeed. Meaningless mumbo-jumbo from Ms. Shannon.

I think we should hit the Yellow Alert button for this one. What do they actually mean by “the transformation and impacting the culture of policy development and re-design through a gender equality and intersectionality lens across all Ministries.” Here is my translation for what it’s worth. The NDP government wants to change the gender of some senior positions now held by men, change the policy and have the policy written by women, to apply throughout all government ministries. Brian Mason was just declared a dinosaur. This will no doubt create dissension in the public service bureaucracy and maybe beyond. Destroying from within seems to be a fad nowadays. Now where is that Red Alert button?

Sheila, please apply for the job. You’ll have some excellent fodder for a great rebel article when you get the rejection letter and the morons hire some leftist woman from Ontario or BC.

I’d like to recommend Svend Robinson for the position… he checks all the boxes dear to Alberta government… NDP icon, doesn’t live in Alberta (lives in BC, son of US draft dodger), thief, union activist, etc…
