Notley’s “clueless” response to Nice terror attack overlooks threat posed by radical Islam

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

Did anyone hear what Rachel Notley said about the Islamic terror attack in Nice that left 84 dead on Bastille Day after a terrorist plowed a truck into a crowded pedestrian street?

What Notley said is bizarre and unrealistic. It’s dangerously clueless about the very real threat to the west by radical Islam.

“The best response to acts of terror, is quite frankly, to continue to live our lives in freedom”

I love freedom. I’m a bit of an advocate for it, but this feel good nonsense is right up there with Jack Layton’s catchy but utterly useless phrase “hope is better than fear.” It’s an excuse for doing nothing. I tend to believe living in harsh reality is always better than stumbling through life in a softer and kinder delusion.

The best response to acts of terror is overwhelming force against those who plan to commit further acts of terror. The best response is not inviting further terrorists into our communities for the sake of appearing tolerant.

It’s the job of the government to protect my freedoms by acting against those who would perpetuate terror. If the government doesn’t do those things then the terrorists are the ones living in freedom while the rest of the population live in fear.

But this is the obvious response from a leader that thinks global warming is a greater threat to humanity than terrorism.

At least she put her hat on properly this year. I wonder who helped her?

“The best response to acts of terror is OVERWHELMING FORCE
Makes sense to me.
When do we start…
…and when do we get to ‘the purge of the socialists’ part?

Colin Chepil – that is so true!

James Scott – I think Rachel won’t call an election until the next scheduled one. This last one was called a year earlier than it should have been, because Prentice thought he had the election in the bag.

Just under three years and counting. Dang, I can’t wait till this government is expelled. (and she is probably the brightest of the bunch of NDP MLA’s.)

Talk about putting lipstick on a pig!

What that buffoon pig behind Naughtyley doing in Stetson hat??

As a Canadian, the unfortunate thing about defending yourself during an attack is that you will be the one charged by the police … not the terrorist.
I wonder if a religious plea of " … an eye for an eye … " would save me from doing slammer time?

This stunned c*nt is just a tool of Socialist International. The same club that France and other EU (along with South American countries) are part of. It’s not surprising that her knuckle headed “advice” would be the same as given in France. The end game for these twats is full blown communism and they are trying to use Islam as the battering ram to break the West. What these dipsh*ts don’t seem to get is that they can’t control Islam and they are playing with fire!

Man, you make me lol. “Rachel doesn’t understand this.” What else? I don’t know if we can survive 2-1/2 years

Notley doesn’t strike me as ‘driven or crazy as Kathleen Wynne’. It is a shame you guys got saddled with this NDP.. It is kinda funny. Alberta of all the place in Canada gets stuck with idealogical nonsense. Look on the bright side—- maybe, YOU can receive equalization welfare.

I don’t expect our accidental socialist premier to be a statesman. Could you imagine Winston Churchill during the Second World War telling the Brits, as London was being ruthlessly pummelled by bombs dropped by Nazi Germany’s aircraft that “the best response…is quite frankly to live our lives in freedom”!

I don’t pretend to understand . Some people vote Right , some Left and some in between which is usually Liberal . Now, there is nothing . There is no in Between. You are Left or you are Right . Amazing ! It is not amazing— it just your choice of political belief. The Left enjoy their Big Gov’t, Big Unions and Big Taxes. That is their RIGHT. The Right prefer small Gov’t , small Taxes and small Unions. As is their RIGHT. What I don’t understand is why the Left (LIB and NDP) are so quick and so willing to sell out what most of us consider to be our Culture and our Heritage. It is like you don’t care about Canada any more long as you look good and get a pat on the head from the UN and the EU. How much more do you think that Christian Canadians should HIDE so as not to offend Muslims. I am sick and tired of the CBC going on and on and on about your Syrian refugees. . You Liberals are soo frigging Fake—

Why expect a cathartic change from Notley where vision and pragmatism are required – The woman’s clueless response is linear with her clueless response to life – what can you expect from a career loafer who lived in an office cubicle – that is the limit of here vision , it stops at the office wall.

Notley is, in fact, dumber than she looks.

Best comment on her that I have ever seen.

Stealing it – thanks!

“Canadian conservatives are turning into a bunch of whipped pups…”

Thanks for that KELVIN. Glad to know I’m not quite alone. ;)

Fuckin eh, Jamie, fuckin eh. Canadian conservatives are turning into a bunch of whipped pups, laying on their backs and pissing on their bellies. It’s getting real pathetic.

Just a comment on the “FIRE BERMAN” post.

Pe’ ti-shun: Old Athabaskan word meaning “long list of people who won’t take real action”.

Hey therebelmedia. Time to start organizing some days of serious protest. Leave the petitions to the wieners.

Nice segment SGR!!!

Notley’s statement implies that if a terrorist were to blow Rachel Notley’s fucking head off, we should all live in freedom.

Where’s muhammed when you need him????

NDP Sucks – I think he’s running neck and neck with mayor “moonbeam” in Vancouver.

Richard Man – I think that he will be unseated this coming election, due to the arrogance and ignorance of both of these losers. The property tax bills alone will ensure that he finally gets kicked to the curb. He’s a full blown narcissist, and he is destroying Calgary. As Rachel is doing her best to destroy AB!

At least there are plenty of these ostriches now residing in Alberta now, they don’t have to dig up the ground to bury their collective heads………… They can shove their heads up each other’s asses.

Nenshi is a fat pig muslim, tax payer greedy, who calls himself mayor. He is the Dennis Coderre of the west. Fire his ass out of Alberta. He has got to be the worst mayor west of Ontario. Tax Tax Tax and more Tax. He is driving Calgary toward a financial collapse. Get rid of this fat musloid pig NDP stooge.

That picture looks like she got kicked in the face by a horse

I hope all you Calgarians are taking notes as to how often pictures of Notley have that greasy mayor of yours is right behind her smiling and grinning. Vote that prick out at the next election.

This slippery kunt needs a swift kick in the head from a horse.
