Hutterites don't want special treatment -- They want Bill 6 dead

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

On Thursday afternoon, The NDP issued a statement that they would be exempting Hutterite farms from Bill 6. 

Bill 6 is the new farm safety legislation that forces farmers to carry WCB coverage for their employees and adhere to Occupational Health and Safety Standards and labour laws.

The NDP never expected the pacifist and deeply religious Hutterite sect to fight for their futures. They are coming out to the rallies, standing shoulder to shoulder with other farming families to kill Bill 6. And Lori Sugurdson didn’t know what to do with the Hutterites. Are their communal living arrangements payment in kind? She didn't know when she went on a Calgary radio station this week.

So a day later, she exempted them, against their wishes.

The Hutterites don’t want special treatment. They're farmers and ranchers like everyone else. And they were very concerned about being singled out for special treatment. They want Bill 6 dead.

Gord Tait, a Hutterite Business advisor with MNP said “don’t point us out, don’t single us out, don’t use our name if you don’t use anybody else’s name." Tait went on to say “The colonies do not want a special exemption. The colonies are pushing the agenda that they are a great example of a family farm and they are part of agriculture and want to be treated by the rules of agriculture,”

Sorry, Minister Sigurdson and Minister Carlier. You can't divide farmers from their friends and neighbors based on religion. And if you think you can, you don’t know anything about rural Alberta.

The state cannot PROTECT you. There will be farm accidents, car accidents, industrial accidents etc.. Changing puppets at the head of the failed State will not secure your person by requiring more ridiculous legislation. A career politician, with a Law degree from Osgoode Hall is probably not really in touch with the reality of the daily workings of a rural farmer, rancher or even a backyard chicken owner. They (politicians) are run by Corporate Elitists, Banksters, Military industrialists, etc.. Your Governments are bought and paid for by International criminal Cabals. Plato said – “Democracy leads to Anarchy and than to Tyranny” . Not saying that Anarchy is failure but Tyranny is certainly failure. The US founding fathers warned us to stay “VIGILANT” or risk failure. Ask yourselves now, how “VIGILANT” does the voting populace look to you? It might be time to rethink the situation we are in.

You are defeatist and clearly you have already surrendered.

As a consequence of bad government, those who are constantly threatened by the tyranny of the majority will go their own way. Canada is a suicide pact and nothing more. If you want to live, abandon this Canadian cesspool and win your freedom.

I don’t want to sound like a defeatist, but most legislatures in Canada including our new federal government have majorities and a mandate their supporters believe in. Most of these mandates are going to last for 3 or 4 years. Personally, I can’t think of any way to stop this wave of socialist thinking without making the electorate suffer. This will never happen because any drastic action taken by the makers will hurt them more than it will the takers. The takers will always be looked after by the government as they have the ability to borrow (in their minds) unlimited funds to keep their programs funded as well as their friends taken care of. These uninformed, entitled voters are the first in line for their free stuff and the first to complain when the products they consume increase in price. Don’t worry, if it becomes too onerous their political masters will subsidize that industry to bring costs down for that special interest group. Vicious circle. Unfortunately, that vicious circle is Canada going down the toilet. Wash, rinse, repeat, until you have no hair left.

They are following Wynnie’s plan of destruction in ON. Rachel is not bright enough to have her own blueprint of destruction for AB, she had to borrow one, from that criminal Wynnie.

Hey AB Patriot, I really hope Alberta does not follow Manitoba’s lead. Rural Manitoba pretty much has no say because the majority of the seats are in Winnipeg. Manitoba has suffered for 15 years of the NDP because of the idiot urban vote. Maybe there is some hope here this April with the Conservatives kicking out the NDP.

Getting rid of leeching bureaucrats will require swift, severe, and cruel action. I have no problem with that. Heck, I will gladly take part.

You are completely wrong. This is a war against rural people by urbanites. If not, where are the thousands of urbanites demanding the NDP abandon Bill 6 or be destroyed? They are no where to be seen.

The NDP is acting, whether urbanites know it or not, on their behalf. If they stand idly by and let this injustice continue, they are accomplices to anti-rural policies.

What is required is honesty and action. There is no use acting like a throughly pansified, limp-wristed, mincing, lisping, effeminate coward in the face of obvious government encroachment in private life. All must denounce the NDP and pledge to destroy them – that is the only credible action. Anything less just proves that one is throughly pussified.

This government has all the arrogance in the world. This is the culmination of years of creeping socialism in the beauacrats. They have the idiots wd have a elected as the face of the government but is the unelected leeches that are the real problem. Years of corruption and no accountability have left them believing they are our masters that they provide us with jobs ,a culture of the government will provide. We are the govermnent not them we are the master not them,we need to march on the legislature the building we built and put our foot the door.

Ken Waters – we need to keep attacking this cancerous government, as they continue their assault on capitalism. I honestly have never felt this sick in my life, with a bunch of stupid socialists at the helm, who won a wild election, and who can’t see the forest for the trees. There is absolutely no recognizable intelligence in the NDP, they are slags to an archaic failed ideology. They are like children, refusing to listen to anyone else. What a bloody disaster they are for humanity! They are greedy beyond belief, and I look forward to when the tables turn, and we chase them from office, and hopefully Alberta, forever!

It wasn’t that long ago that when a person became ill doctors believed cutting the person and bleeding them a bit would cure the illness. So it is today in Alberta, the NDP believe the cure for the failing Alberta economy is to bleed it with higher taxes and regulation.

People are losing their livelihoods. Suicide rates are up a 150% in Alberta. Socialist malpractice and the despair it engenders must be terminated. Moving to BC or suicide are not solutions for socialist disease.

Elton Braun said, “Liberals elect a government so it can tell the people what to do. Conservatives elect a government so the people can tell it what to do.”

Yup. The Conservative way is the only logical one since they are hired by the people.

AB Patriot – “A declaration of war by urbanites?” This is the government acting, not all of us urbanites. Get real! The enemy is this rogue communist government.

The only way to get government out of the lives of everyone is to assure that the government is financially bankrupt. If the government can no longer provide, it becomes useless, to the citizens and those within it. No more handouts and no more slop in the trough. Demand more from the NDP – they will provide – and take more. Keep taking until it is broken. Once that happens, your freedom will be restored. The best thing that can happen is bankruptcy.

Rae Fraser, what makes you think that anyone but the Hutterites are bringing the Hutterites into this debate?
commented 2015-12-07 02:58:25 -0500
Albertans can force Notley and her radical anti-Alberta government out of office by blanketing Alberta with hundreds of thousands of signs demanding just that. Make it impossible for the NDP to pretend they have public support for their radical anti-Alberta agenda. Make it impossible for them to pretend that they represent Albertans.

As someone from BC, I hope I’m not speaking out of turn, but I think there may be a way to turn this around. It’s a slim chance, but it’s the only chance I think you Albertans have. That slim chance is this: try and force the NDP Party to turf Rachel Notley as their leader. The way to do that is to sign up volunteers in every Riding that elected an NDP MLA, to go out and knock on doors, and sign up as many people as possible to protest outside of the local NDP constituency Office, and keep up the protest until they get action. Let every NDP MLA know they will not be re-elected if they don’t kill Bill 6. That doesn’t not mean completely shifting the protesting away from Alberta’s Parliament buildings, but those protests can be left to the farmers in ridings which elected a Wild Rose or Conservative MLA. In the NDP Ridings, focus all protests, questions and animosity to wards the local MLA and their Office, and don’t let up. If enough pressure is applied, and they want to preserve their political career, it could possibly pressure a party-wide revolt and force Notley to resign. If enough NDP were afraid of losing the support of their constituents, they may even vote against the Bill, forcing the collapse of the NDP Government. It’s all a very slim shot, but if it could be organized, it’s worth a try.

The NDP elect a government when the people don’t know whether to shit or go blind.

Liberals elect a government so it can tell the people what to do. Conservatives elect a government so the people can tell it what to do.

Harper was accused of the politics of “Hate and Division”. The Liberals are already doing much worse than this—- Everything that I was raised to believe in— has been tossed , toppsy turvvey, on its’ head. I can’t even begin to understand what the Hell is going on——but— when You guys feel obligated or mercenary enough to bring the Hutterites into OUR conflict——- Then you are doing the same thing as the fucking Liberals. Can you not see what I mean ?

Of course the reasonable or civil answer is that government should leave the farmer alone. Marx would say get in his hair and control him. I think the millennials of our day and age gotta start saying that Obama. He’s Black. But what a Marxist asshole.

Revolution, Acuuna, is typically a bloody barbarous thing. Unless one side is founded in something that is perfect: like the American Revolution, … otherwise the revolution never ends well. Lots of blood, guts and mayhem. Like the French Rev. . Bunch of needless debauchery it is.
