“Desperate” Nenshi pulls race card as Calgary Mayoral race tightens

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

In 2010, Calgary elected the first Muslim mayor in Canada with Naheed Nenshi winning the race with 39 per cent of the vote. He was subsequently re-elected with 74 per cent, yet in a video circulating on social media last week, Nenshi played the race card. 

Infusing identity politics into the upcoming municipal election, Nenshi suggested that those who don’t vote for him are racist.

Could it be due to the fact that there’s a strong chance he may be ousted by underdog turned front runner candidate, Bill Smith?

In a surprising twist in an otherwise boring campaign, Smith almost doubled his lead over Nenshi from 9 per cent to 17 per cent according to the latest Mainstreet Research poll.

While it may be convenient for Nenshi to blame his nosediving numbers on racism, the facts aren’t on his side.

Nenshi didn’t live up to the expectations of Calgarians and fell short delivering on his promises.

There are countless examples which include overtaxing and overspending, failing to complete major projects, and simply not being able to handle criticism.

Mayor Nenshi has been given seven years to prove his competency at Calgary City Hall and yet, nothing has changed.

Despite his divisive rhetoric, the only divide we’re going to see is at the polls on October 16.

A few people are slightly racist – but most people are realists!

He is a POS and not worthy of the position.

If the truth is not to be heard then call me a racist.

If the truth is to be heard then call me one of the realists.

He is simply a whining bully now that it looks like he is going down.

If he loses I could not be happier, as his comments make him EXACTLY what he complains about to others.

Hi Holly. I love your big summary of the mayor’s failures. Didn’t the mayor also say something stupid about Uber too?

This is worse than the deceitful “race card” con used by identity Marxists, Nenshi is pitting minorities against other Canadians – he’s openly engaged in race based conflict agitating. What a low life sleeze.

From the Header Description-Nenshi suggested that those who don�t vote for him are racist.- -This statement, alone, makes him Racist. Dose it not.

You Tube is busy pulling, what it calls Racist video’s, more and more disappear every day, but I have noticed that video’s are only pulled if they are anti Colored or pro White. If a video is anti White it is left in place.

Here is a good example that is very graphic but in fact is a clip made by actors.

A little of topic but true

Nenshi won the first time only because of vote splitting and the second time mainly because his main opponent didn’t put in much of an effort. He could win again if people make the all to common mistake of believing the opinion polls and stay home. I for one will not be making that mistake.
“Former mayor” Naheed Nenshi. Sounds soooooo beautiful doesn’t it?

Tsk, Tsk,Tsk,….the political correctors always think they can guilt and shame manipulate you….there are no invigilators in the ballot booths….it’s sort of like a catholic confessional….what happens there is between you and God and is not subject to SJW performance evaluation….of the Devil’s branding you a sinner…..and is therefore the very essence of redemption…..:-)

His thin-skinned supremacist ideology is showing again.

… Only the Left plays the race card anymore. Everyone else is over it.

Andrew Stephenson, “Desperate" Nenshi pulls race card as Calgary Mayoral race tightens.
Did the reason for the report escape your attention again?!!

I seem to remember that Nenshi played the race card in 2010 as well when signs and offices of all candidates were being vandalized, he said his were targeted because of race.

Regarding his tolerance to other beliefs, is he not the Calgary mayor that banned Christmas carols in city hall and stood down the police at Jewish rallies and counter protests?

I find it interesting that the Rebel has nothing to say in Smith’s favour. Perhaps they too realize that his platitudes aren’t really a solution to Nenshi’s flaws…

Notice he keeps using the words ‘we and us’! Get and vote for ‘US’.
Who is ‘us’? I thought ‘he’ was running for Mayor.

Nenshi used to be in the same debating class as Ezra in school. And I think Danielle Smith, former WR Leader was also a former classmate of Ezra’s.

What a blowhard! Nenshi needs reminding that Islam is not a race!
His appeal seems more to be directed to his Muslim supporters to get out and vote.
Pull up the video with his weasely comments about Uber taxis. His eyes bug out when he is being an arrogant jerk which is quite often.

TYPICAL MUSLIM. WHEN THINGS DON’T GO THEIR WAY THEY DRAW THE RACIST, BIGOT, ISLAMOPHOBIC CARDS AND THEN THE ASSAULTS, INSULTS, FINGER POINTING AND SO ON BEGIN! I suggest we send all the white liberals and all the muslims currently destroying Canada , to the middle east and let them all enjoy what they are currently bringing upon we Canadians who didn’t ask or vote for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Desperate “plea” from a horrible mayor who will later write his own “What Happened” book.
Playing the race card is part and parcel of what incompetent people have at their disposal. Gag!

The only race this nut bar is in is to the shit house.
commented 2017-10-11 17:17:49 -0400
He’s been in office 7-years too long, in my opinion. I find it hard to believe that 74% reelected him. I never voted for him in either election. The big cry baby needs to go!
