Communist NDP candidate Anne McGrath calls police on Rebel reporter

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

Alberta NDP candidate for Calgary-Varsity Anne McGrath is a communist. Don’t let the NDP orange she is wearing for the campaign fool you. On the inside, she is as red as Vladimir Lenin.


McGrath has been featured in many glowing articles from the Media Party. The CBC once was so blatant (or obtuse) that they outlined each and every campaign she ever ran in, EXCEPT for the Communist Party campaign that McGrath ran in the 1980s, during the Cold War. Notley once told Postmedia that, “Anne understands my thinking on things and we’re very closely connected”. I wonder what the media outcry would be if Jason Kenney said something similar about a radical employee. 

While President Ronald Reagan and then Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney were busy arming the Canadian north in the 1980s, strategically protecting North America from a nuclear holocaust - Anne McGrath was fighting for the enemy team.

McGrath’s red record consists of fighting to nationalize the economy, and gleefully participating in “capitalist pig roasts”, where effigies of the Canadian bourgeois, or the “ruling class” as McGrath and her comrades put it were being burned on a spit, to protest the capitalist patriarchy.

It is my opinion that running for the Communist Party during the Cold War should be treated akin to supporting the Imperial Japanese or the Nazis in the 1940s. Radical, dictatorial ideologies have no place in Canada, and people supporting them should be crucified (figuratively) by the media.

Sadly, the mainstream media has willingly ignored the red record of Anne McGrath – I refuse to give her a pass, as should anyone who has had family succumb to McGrath’s deadly ideology.

In the video above, I approach McGrath while she door-knocks in a Calgary community. Not only does she comment on ongoing litigation between The Rebel and the Government of Alberta (of which she is a senior director), she actually called the police on a journalist – for asking her tough questions of all things!

It is clear McGrath is indeed close to Notley, in ideology and operation. Just like the Premiers’ Office called the Sheriffs on Sheila Gunn Reid for covering a story in the Legislature, this Calgarian Communist holds unregistered journalists in high contempt. Unfortunately for McGrath, and as you will see in the video, the Calgary Police Service are not the Stasi that she is used to.

Great job! Cool and collected. But why did no one notice you saying she ran for the communist party during the Cold War in the 1900s? Personally, I think NDP supporters ARE communists. Isn’t that pretty common knowledge?

NDP luminary Anne McGrath ran for the Communist Party in Edmonton Strathcona in the 1984 federal election. Any media outlet omitting this from her political biography is remiss, if not disingenuous.

Nevertheless, thirty-five years is a long time and people change. Indeed, Scott Brison was a (Progressive) Conservative a mere sixteen years ago, but certainly hasn’t been one for the past fifteen years, not even within the Nova Scotia provincial context where Progressive Conservatives remain very much alive and well and may win the next election.

A reasonably safe assumption is that McGrath is no longer a communist. And she has every right not to comment further, although she ought to come clean with voters in Calgary-Varsity, so they can make a more informed decision when assessing her candidacy. What is her current opinion of communism and why was she so reticent when Keean Bexte asked the question? Did she find the question insulting and unworthy of a response? Why not condescend by saying so? Does she consider anti-communism unsophisticated even though she no longer remains a communist? What can be so hard about saying, “no, I am not a communist”?

Sadly, many of our elites who are not communists (or no longer communists) have nevertheless been shamefully reluctant to disavow an ideology that was the twentieth century’s greatest mass murderer.

Robert Greeley, tickle the breaks tough guy! I clearly said I didn’t want it, or did you get immediately triggered and not make it through the entire post? Apparently, if I did want it, i wouldn’t have to ‘get out of Canada or the US’ as it is already here. you dim-witted shit sack. Read more carefully before you get all capital letters and blow your wad.

While her reaction was ridiculous, her online profile does say she was in the Communist Party of Canada whilst in school and has admitted that she was influenced by teachers and peers. Maybe this rhetoric is a little overblown? Would I vote for the NDP? Never.

Hey.. Classof Nineteeneightyfour commented 19 hours ago…. you went on a defense for a communist lover promoter.. Who’s the dim-witted shit sack?

The NDP is the Party of Karl Marx . . .
The CBC is Canada’s Pravda . . . should have been shuttered decades ago !
And CTV is Izvestia

Great job Keenan informative and so entertaining. Hopefully your new found comrade views your report if for no other reason but to further irritate her.
I wish her nothing but “UPC” inspired Capitalistic Nightmares….

Nice work Keean. The NDP are all scum and commies. I keep hoping one of them will knock on my door.

Always been a Commie presence in Canada . . . even in the 40s when Justey’s father was riding around Montreal on his motorcycle with his Communist Party of Canada membership card in his pocket ! No wonder the son is so f’ed up and clueless!

Oh, my… The Rebel is Right Wing? Damn, I guess I should be showing more support than I already am.. As for the Cold War thing? Yeah, I was working on the DEW Line in the early eighties, when Anne McGrath and her Commie friends were doing their thing. So, while I was watching for the Russians invading from the other side of the North Pole, Canadian Commies were actually having a Capitalist Pig Roast here in Canada? I would not have known that until now. Wow, and I love Pig Roasts…

Harley Mccartney…You have my complete understanding and sympathy as things like Safe Injection Sites are being set up in Rural B,C., even though the problem is in the cities.
Most of the Homeless have Mental and Addictive Issues, so it’s not a simple matter of providing shelter.
I believe Mayors like the guy in my town are on the take to bring the scum out of the crowded cities and drop them in unsuspecting Rural Communities. (Much like the Mayor of Toronto is moving Trudeau’s Islamic Illegals out of Toronto to the Rural Areas.)
To make a long story short, the Province and the Mayor are moving nearly 100 Homeless to different newly built shelters in our clean Town, even though our share of the Homeless is no more than 4 people. These are Eastern people.
Even the RCMP have stated publicly that crime will go up substantially.

So if a politician doesn’t want to answer a question, it is harassment? WHIIIIINER!
commented 2019-04-04 10:43:31 -0400
The msm will forgive anyone who ran as a communist,but if any candidate has ever run for a right wing Party, there would be no end to the media harrassment they’d endure.
commented 2019-04-04 10:23:48 -0400
You do such great work KEEAN! Keep up the good work!!

All these people hate the truth so much it is sickening ! If this woman is a Communist then she really is mentally unbalanced . What a damn liar she is . Sorry , that should be 200 million people . Cops , you shouldn’t allow her to waste your time .

Hey guess what were getting in my neighborhood. Mobile safe injection site.
yep. I guess they think if they say mobile (setting up tents in your local park) people will think its just rolling by on wheels.
Safe injection site! Safe for who?
Meeting at the local community hall tonight.
&6@$% is non profit organization want,s to help addicts by drawing them to our community.

Set it up in the mayors community.
Everywhere this has been done this happens.

Property values go down.
Business takes a hit. Come dine with harassment.
Crime rises in the area. Addicts are employed by ripping off the nearest person/business/home .
Needles and condoms everywhere.
Screaming and sirens 24-7.
So who benefits, the heroin dealers of course. Its nice to have all the addicts in a handy location. To bad for the rest of the tax payers.
I hope we as a community can sue them.

When you are in your “senior” years, as I am, facing reality is good for the soul.. Or so I would advise… In this case I would once again like to invoke my “parachute fund” suggestion; strap one on her back, and boot her out over the Road of Bones to Magadan to explain where those “bones” came from…
commented 2019-04-04 01:37:34 -0400
So voting for communism is …. " Maybe this rhetoric is a little overblown? "

IMO There is NO OVERBLOWN opinions on communism. It’s real!!.. IT’S out there! You want it? … Then get the hell out of Canada and the USA!!!!

Good one Ron Joseph.. lol… yup.

I can’t believe that Alberta has Police that are neutral, usually they arrest the Right Winged person, no matter who is at fault.

You’ll find a lot of other communists in the NDP.

They.. who don’t want to talk to the Rebel… imo… don’t want the truth to get out into the public masses.

Take your communist views elsewhere along with your boss you hag!!!

I’ve been waiting for rod to come over but I already told a minion he is a communist so I doubt he’ll stop here because he would need the police
commented 2019-04-03 20:00:36 -0400
“Police, please.”

She actually called the 911 emergency number because a journalist was asking her, an aspiring politician, questions. In a public place. Unbelievable.

I wonder if she’s one of those people who calls 911 when Dominos messes up her pizza order? LOL
commented 2019-04-03 19:27:36 -0400
Un-bloodybelievable! The Dippers have been whining about how ‘scared’ they are of Albertans, because Albertans are threatening, dontchaknow, ever since they started their anti-Alberta agenda. They call us ‘sewer rats’ while running up a $100 billion debt, chasing away investment, and they expect civility?!
