I've been having some fun at Alberta NDP candidate Michael Connolly's expense,
However, I see now that some of Connolly's views -- specifically about gun ownership and Christianity -- may not make him a good fit to represent Albertans.
Earlier this year on Facebook, Connolly reposted a popular "meme" on the left side of the internet:
It's a photo showing an armed female Muslim terrorist holding up a Koran on one side, and an American woman holding a gun and a Bible on the other.
Connolly commented: "Both are radicals, and possible terrorists."
Challenged by readers, he doubled down, posting sweeping generalizations about Christianity and guns (and getting some pretty basic facts wrong about firearms.)
OK, so Michael Connolly's ignorance about both topics is pretty typical of young people in his milieu.
But how will it go over with Alberta voters, I wonder?
