Edmonton CityNews panelists react to Alberta election with hate

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I reported on the reaction of the mainstream media to the results of the Alberta election. In particular, the panelists covering election night on CityNews Edmonton.

There were three young women on the panel, including pro-business advocate Amber Ruddy. But I want to focus on the remarks of the other two panelists, Pam Rocker of Affirming Connections Calgary and Mel Vee an "artist and volunteer" with the Canadian Cultural Mosaic Foundation

Rocker raised the delusional specter of the UCP firing teachers "for being gay", while Vell viewed the results of the election as proof Albertans care more about jobs and the economy than her life...

The only hatred I've seen during this election is from these two panelists and the NDP, who seem to hate their fellow Albertans.

Is this really the look and sound of Edmonton these days? Because if it is, yikes!

To be clear in my previous comment. Unbelievable example of the (Government) idiocy.

With out economic activity people are not living, but merely existing, unless they are parasites of the system!

Unbelievable example of the idiocy. Bernier just posted this gov.ca link on his twitter.

“Are you a Gryffindor (brave, loyal, courageous and adventurous), a Ravenclaw (wise, creative, clever and knowledgeable), a Hufflepuff (hard working, dedicated, fair, patient) or a Slytherin (resourceful, ambitious, determined and crave leadership)?

No matter what ‘house’ you belong to, Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) has various teams that we would love to use our ‘sorting hat’ to place you into. We are looking for strong and motivated candidates that are interested in making an impact on Canadian citizens. With our Talent Management Program, we will help you grow, learn and further develop your magical career within the Public Service. Come and let TBS become your home away from home!"
Stop the madness. We need to recruit responsible, healthy minded adults for gov’t jobs not Harry Potter characters! We have got to deep six the liberals in October and nurture Canada back to health before its too late.
Read the link for full impact.

First thing that caught my attention to respond/comment about was that PC of work chawing & chewing away on her cud. What a classless fool!! Glad Ezra caught that too.

“Someone needs to explain to these lunatics perhaps slowly that LGBT rights are protected by our Human Rights in this country.”

That’s right Dennis, and have been for going on 40 years. But that isn’t good enough for them. They have been weaponized and will always want more. The government are pushing this onto us in schools and in the media as if to normalize it, for a reason. Control. The government doesn’t work for us anymore, they work to control us. Destroying the family and confusing our children is just another tool in their toolbox of demolition.

Its the entitlement that blows me away.
‘stop the economy, I am not feeling loved !’
‘More free stuff I have been offended!’

Someone needs to explain to these lunatics perhaps slowly that LGBT rights are protected by our Human Rights in this country. Perhaps the host might have pointed out that fact. These left wing wackos are given time on so called news programs to spew all kinds of fear mongering and make up a host of dooms day predictions that anyone with an ounce of common sense knows is total BS. Still waiting for all of the predicted sexist, racist. misogynistic policies that the left carried on about when Trump was elected. Ditto for Ford and now Kenney. Again, these news networks should welcome on people with constructive criticism and better solutions and leave the stupid talk to the extreme echo chambers of the twit world.

I refuse to watch/listen to/read any of canada’s media.
I choose THE REBEL, SPENCER FERNANDO, TRUE NORTH, THE TORONTO SUN and may even give the GLOBE AND MAIL a second look since they had the COURAGE, RESPECT FOR CANADIANS AND CANADA , AND THE MORALS TO PRINT THE SNC-Lavalin SCANDAL whereas the rest have been demonizing, lying, attacking and doing everything in their power to hide the truth from we canadians- WHO BTW PAY THEIR SALARIES!
Despicable and treasonous.

Liza Rosie,
Thank you.’
Well said- all of your responses.
I have been saying this forever it seems and good to know I’m not the only one who actually sees what is happening and been happening for decades of liberal/lefty/political correctness brainwashing/indoctrination.

Harvey, they are victims, they have been and are being used and manipulated. They were created by the inattention of all of us to the brainwashing, by an agenda to break apart our society from within. Children have not been protected and this is the result.
Like I said, lives are being ruined on all sides. Clean up the government, clean up our agenda driven schools.

Ted Holland, colours, their sky is every colour of our rainbow, our beautiful rainbow which used to just represent hope and beauty. Even the rainbow isn’t safe from cultural marxists. There is nothing sacred with them , not truth, not children, not even the rainbow (hope and beauty). What they want, when they want it, is their motto and only concern. The rest of us be damned. Spoiled entitled brainwashed robots indoctrinated in our schools and by our own governments. Nothing will change and heal until we change that. Lives are being ruined, all around, on all sides of this travesty.
Ashley I hope you are right. That could be how the game has to be played. For now anyway.
commented 2019-04-22 10:53:41 -0400
Lisa Rosie, did you ever stop even for a moment to consider that Kenney is playing the I believe card in order to get our pipelines built. In this world full of radical environuts one has to some times play the game to get one’s goals achieved. If the radical left have taught us one thing, it’s that lying to get what you want is acceptable. We may not agree with or like these leftist rules of the game but we are no longer going to be playing with one arm tied behind our back.

I can’t help think that Edmonton is going to pay a steep price for there treachery . The whole time we Albertans have been eyeing the back stabbers in Vancouver when all along we have our own back stabbers right here in Edmonton.

I wonder what the colour of the sky is in the “Snowflake World”. Spoiler alert! For the rest of us it is blue.

I have to congratulate and thank the two famale’s on the political far left, for being so honest and unfiltered. They demonstrated to everyone the true core of the NDP, the unfiltered deeply held beliefs of the NDP, and by doing so, they confirmed to all who voted Conservative that they indeed did the right thing.

Liberals are the same everywhere:

Liberals hate
Conservatives oppose

Liberals attack
Conservatives oppose

Liberals defame
Conservatives oppose.

Liberals destroy.
Conservatives oppose.

Just look at the ‘Red Star’, CNN, CBC, Washington post, , NYT, and every university campus The election of a Conservative government in a former Liberal / Socialist state always brings the liberal hate to the surface.Liberals hate while Conservatives oppose

I think ALL News media are so biased in their thinking. They are impairing the fairness of ALL elections! Total Stupidity! NEWS today is utter garbage and falsehoods… Report nothing but NEGATIVITY. This has led to the financial woes of ALBERTA and CANADA. These self appointed “mouthpieces” of the MEDIA.. need to respect the people, the province and the country… they live in. You will soon be on the unemployment line, if we, the people can convince the NEW Elected officials to CUT ALL FUNDING to these RAGS!

“Jamie, I think the, “look at me, I’m different”, alternative lifestyle crowd” is trying to form some kind of identity since traditional streams for the have been eroded over the last 3 decades. This erosion was not happenstance; it was planned. "

Well, AL, it seems to me that most everyone today is in a desperate search to get recognized. And there’s no better way to do that than by playing the victim card. LGBTQ, PTSD, METOO, BLM…it doesn’t effin’ end.

I am glad Notley is out. Kenney is better, I hope he will listen and do the right thing for Albertans. Not just what he thinks is the right thing to do , but what real Albertans, the ones who built the province, want for it, with respect to founding forefathers efforts.. Then, if what that looks like, is what others want to respect, they will be welcome. Alberta has a right to that. All the provinces do, Canada does, but only if there is respect for who and how this place was built. Respect being the operative word, and no newcomer, identity or special interest group should be allowed to dictate to and disregard the values which built this place and the progress made.

If Kenney blows it, Alberta will break away in some fashion.
commented 2019-04-20 14:10:01 -0400
Kenney’s immigration policies have been the same for a long time. I fear his allegiance is to the UN globalist agenda. How can you be pro oil and gas, and want to get pipelines built, while at the same time believe in any significant amount of anthropogenic climate change? Kenney (and Scheer) must if he is buying into the Paris accord emissions levels. Why would you buy into it if you are the only country it is being demanded of? Why would you bring thousands more refugees to Alberta when Albertans are out of work, and its the last thing that is wanted or needed?

There are more than a few things that do not add up with Kenney, and these two triggered special snowflakes need to understand that we have a list of big problems and they are not at the top of that list.
commented 2019-04-20 13:56:19 -0400
I agree completely Al, good comment. We have been confusing our children from day one in schools. From Kindergarten to University, creating a needy, triggered, victim class. Yet another easily manipulated underclass, who gain employment through, grants, attrition and out and out welfare. A class the government is not only bringing in through refugee flooding, but also though manufacturing its own victims with population control as a means to roll out what ever they please. Yes, these people are being used and those of us who refuse to be, are put in the naughty corner and called everything from facists, nazis, racist white supremacists. They equate nationalism and patriotism to colonizing, murdering, genocidal murderers. The globalist agenda that our increasingly marxist governments are utilizing, is confusing, dumbing down and weaponizing the population. These intersectional gender confused people are victims, but they are also potentially dangerous, because the government is their daddy. They will do anything they are told for their free stuff and status handed out by the nanny state.They are compliant soldiers for the ‘man’, the very patriarchy they say they despise.

Women are also being used and weaponized by the same patriarchal force. Handed power and status unearned and/or riding on the coattails of the feminazi third wave agenda which is not organic, but manufactured by the same puppet masters.

These ‘victims’ are used and abused, lied to and manipulated. So open minded, their brains fell out and they have forgotten who they are.

Jamie, I think the, “look at me, I’m different”, alternative lifestyle crowd” is trying to form some kind of identity since traditional streams for the have been eroded over the last 3 decades. This erosion was not happenstance; it was planned.

They are victims, all right. Victims of the Left’s attempt to form the New Soviet Man. The new Soviet Man can only be constructed when old identities and histories are destroyed. Hence the recent spate of destroying statues and replacing them with the PC versions of what heroes are dethroned to be by that crowd.

With no history you have no identity. So you are ripe for being formed into whatever the elites want you to be. This also explains the lack of teaching of history and its replacement with Social Studies. IT explains the disinterest, nay, hatred of Christianity. It formed the western world view for millennia and was the basis of what we value which formed the basis for our legal systems and elevation of the worth of the individual and all races. It was never a golden age, to be sure, but to paraphrase Churchill, The Judeo-christian worldview is the worst of all -except for all the alternatives.

Now we see the competing leftist value systems are starting to compete with each other as seen in the cancellation of the Edmonton pride festival. They have no foundation adequate to form a new identity except for emotion. Emotion is a good servant but a lousy master as we are finding out.

150,000,00 and murders and counting in the name of building a better socialist man

“Christianity sets very high moral standards but offers absolute forgiveness
Secularist society has no moral standards and says do what you like, But offers no forgiveness to anybody who transgresses the unwritten code.”

The Useless Class probably has little to be worried about. Other than the carbon tax, Kenney’s green philosophy will be just like Ford’s, which is just like Scheer’s, which is the same as turdo la doo’s.

And Kenney won’t have the guts to cut off any subsidies, grants, or related largesse that is now flowing to the perpetually whining, “look at me, I’m different”, alternative lifestyle crowd.
