Alberta election midway point checkup: Where’s the mainstream media? (Guest: Keean Bexte)

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


Two weeks down, two left to go. We have reached the wild and wacky midway point in the Alberta election campaign.

The second week was even crazier than the first.

NDP activists and their proxies in the left-leaning media are oozing desperation. This week, NDPers protested proposed UCP changes to GSA laws that would bring Alberta in-line with nine other provinces in Canada.

The changes if implemented, would allow teachers to use their discretion to notify parents if their child joins a gay-straight alliance support group. The current law prohibits parental notification under any circumstances.

There was only one reporter at the astro-turf protest bringing you the other side of the story. And he was harassed and abused by a so-called “anti-bullying” tolerance mob, catching all of it on camera.

There is only one reporter asking Notley hard questions about her alleged drug-abusing cabinet Minister Deron Bilous, and only one reporter tracking down failed Education Minister David Eggen to ask him about Alberta’s failing test scores.

Of course, I’m talking about my Calgary based Rebel colleague, Keean Bexte.

Keenan joins me tonight in an interview we recorded yesterday to look back at the first half of Notley’s last campaign as Premier of Alberta.

Jason Kenny lost my vote when I heard his speech about lobbying Ottawa so we can accept even more immigrants to Alberta and start putting them in all the small rural towns. If he was really all about the grass roots then he would know that flooding rural towns with immigrants wouldn’t even make the top 20 of the concerns of Albertans.

“Peter Netterville commented 1 day ago
The main stream media have no right to influence any election. That is election interference, but the bastards do it all the time. "

What of the Rebel, then? Or its billboards?

Muta Ween… She’ll probably do it at the Edmonton airport, minutes before she heads back to British Columbia…

We can only hope that the NDP mess up even more. They’re so out of touch with the people. Only government unions and deluded fools still vote NDP.

I wonder how many minutes it will take Notley to come to the podium and concede the election.

The Alberta election has been rather boring in a good way. The UPC is a lock, not because they’re great but because the NDP is so terrible. The UPC will be the next government & the NDP will be lucky if they have party status in a few weeks. Then it’ll be time for Albertans to get a real opposition party in place so this NDP disaster isn’t repeated & an opposition party will be required. As far as the mainstream media is concerned, they undermine their credibility more & more every day.

I was wondering if your use of the term “fifth merchants” was a short form for ‘fifth columnists and filth merchants’ – which is more than apt – or was it merely a typo?

Jan G… Yeah… and “according to the CBC” the polar bears would have been dying by now… Some people never learn from their mistakes and have a childish propensity to keep talking crap in spite of obvious evidence… Just an hour ago there was “some twit” on the Weather Channel assuring us that all Arctic ice would be gone by 2050….

According to CBC (and they know), Manitoba is leaning toward the NDP.
If that’s true, have they not learned ANYTHING from Alberta?

Good show. Thanks.

Yeah… like the National Post’s Tristin Hopper still stirring the pot today in its online news service, suggesting that a Kenney victory is not assured…. And typical of today’s journalism “standards” the piece is not identified as either “opinion”, “wishful thinking” or “hard news”…

I wouldn’t be worried too much about what the NDP say influencing many people, but I think the main stream media can sway voters.

And we all know that the main stream media are not neutral, they actively campaign for the NDP using their media platform.

The main stream media are corrupt.

I see the corrupt left wing media in Redmonton and Calgary are in a panic trying to get their party of Marxist’s, porn pushers, fifth merchants, anti Christians, anti energy workers and anti rural Alberta elected again.

Just two weeks more of the Motley Notley, time to start stocking up on a wee drop of the hard stuff, ready to celebrate her long awaited departure.

There’s Welfare 4 Unemployed NDPer’s but their Generous One-Term Pension would preclude that’
