Alberta’s “cowboy culture” REAL target of Vancouver “hipster” attacks on Chuckwagon events

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The rodeo is a big part of the fabric of Alberta, and each summer we can look forward to it, along with the certainty that a left wing urban do-gooder in Vancouver will hate it.

Every year around Calgary Stampede time, the Vancouver Humane Society (VHS) attacks the sport of rodeo and this year was no different.

Peter Fricker, VHS Director of Communications did his best rodeo bashing yet in a Huffington Post article calling the sport of rodeo “cruel”, saying the animals perform based on fear and suffering. He included pictures of animals with strange looks on their faces as some sort of proof of this cruelty.

VHS loves to attack the Chuckwagon events in particular maligning the sport for the few tragic and heartbreaking horse deaths that can happen in a worst case scenario.

Watch as I talk with one of Alberta’s most recognizable Chuckwagon drivers, Rae Croteau, about the kind of care he gives his Chuckwagon horses.

He’s an unofficial ambassador for the sport and has introduced it to a new generation of fans.

Animal rights types attack rodeo but it’s not about the animals. It’s the rodeo people they don't like. Most rodeo people are small c conservative, traditional family values, God fearing people who pray before the start of a rodeo. They like to solve their own problems, work hard for what they have and want to keep it. Rodeo people also often spend their winters working in the oilpatch to support their farms and rodeo habits.

Rodeo people are everything I love about Alberta and everything that horrifies stereotypical left wing urban Vancouver hipsters.

Rodeo attacks are just run of the mill anti-Alberta, anti-rural, anti-conservative bigotry dressed up as concern.

Liza Rosie said to Bill Elder, “Who doesn’t love a show of strength, skill and courage.”

The socialist pansies.

The dipshits have always attacked the rodeo and the cowboys/cowgirls for as long as I can remember.

They are all hypocritical idiots. Nothing new there.

It’s almost entertaining as I never see VHS or Peter speak out about agri fairs in BC or our local rodeo… We had mini chuck races last weekend where was Peter????

’had to look up broke back mountain.?"

Me too. MIKE. Because here in rural Ontario it was released as “Alberta on Fire”.
commented 2016-08-02 11:49:56 -0400
Wrong jamie. It is because of all the broke back types from other provinces who made their way here for work and brought their socialist politics with them. Ps…..had to look up broke back mountain. Was that a favorite of yours?
commented 2016-08-02 09:59:33 -0400
Well, given the results of Alberta’s last election, (and never missing an opportunity to stir the pot) I’d say that the tree-huggers are winning. I think it all started when all you Alberta cowboys went to see Brokeback Mountain and discovered your sensitive sides. ;)

Just how long are those two molested hockey players going to milk their victim status for? I am just so sick of them. One of them gets paid for speeches and for a play. The other skated across the country, in a fund raiser without telling people he was paid for it. These to are addicted to fame, money, and will just not shut up about their past. They keep using it to make themselves richer by milking people’s sympathy.

And why on earth did the town of Swift Current have to issue an apology? It is not like the town did the molesting.

Just wondering. Does anybody go north and protest the Iditarod race when that is being held ? I’m not sure if that still is held, but using sled dogs it sounds to of been pretty dangerous at times and certainly difficult physically for man and beast. I have always loved watching rodeo, I think those cowboys are great athletes, and it has always been an exciting event as well. Love the Calgary Stampede, even Trudie went to that event a few years ago, doesn’t that mean he approves, just like the pride parade.

Drew, as sad and sick as it sounds……you are correct! It is the mental disability of the leftist regressive fucktards. Unborn babies…….trash em!……….an animal that is treated better than most children in care of the state…….." They need a voice to protect them from abuse". The demented mind of the left is indeed perplexing.
commented 2016-08-02 01:09:01 -0400
If the rodeo involved unborn babies dying the metros would have no problem.

Andrew Stephenson how come those geniuses had their pine beetle mishandling threaten our trees and they took no responsibility for it and all the damage it did? Oh yeah , they are hypocrites.
commented 2016-08-02 01:06:58 -0400
Andrew when did this happen? Oh yeah , in your mind like usual. Please feel free to not eat farm food if we are so bad. And the metros cry over everything , even somebody having a different opinion.

Those Nervous Nellies and Myotonic Goats (metrosexuals, fops and gender confused socialist Vancouverites) in the Big Stink (the Fraser Valley) are really gone…gone over the edge of insanity – this is the infected sewer where the mindset of the Vancouver Humane Society percolates from, in it’s slimy foetidness.
A gauge of their astounding delusion and irrationality can be found in the comments section of this Vancouver Sun article: “Justin Trudeau becomes first PM to march in Vancouver Pride Parade” (warning: The article is all photo-op photos of Justine at the homosexual shame parade):
It is actually quite frightening how misinformed, depraved, intellectually challenged and morally bankrupt the Left-Coasters, stuck in their dank, diseased cesspool and rabbit warrens, really are – seriously, you won’t believe how bad…it’s shocking!
When the West separates from the Eastern Establishment fascists, the Fraser Valley cannot be included, it will have to be pushed into the Pacific, blown up, or seriously fenced off, with travel visas, armed guards, mines and everything…this contagion must be contained!
This demented Lotus Land City attitude must boil down to the fact that they’re all jealous of real men, living real lives with real women in mostly God’s country…Vancouver sucks the big one!

Mary Auld commented 2 hours ago – - – - it is you who is terrified- not the horses. I know this ‘cause you’ve never worked a working horse!! You mistake excitement for terror. Hope you never meet a Muzzie!! – one who after raping you – will have you stoned.
commented 2016-08-01 23:42:37 -0400
Eh, all you BC phucked up “hipsters” come show your wimpy faces to us Alberta cowboys – we’ll hand to you your asses on a shit wheelbarrow!! Maybe you ought to be a bit more concerned about all your bastard drug addicted children you pricks produce! Just a hint to you SJW hipsters – LEAVE our traditions alone – and maybe then we’ll just “proud-cut” you useless pricks to remind you of all the bastards you produce for the rest of us to look after! Got it???

The Williams Lake Rodeo has been going for 88 years now and it is the 2nd largest rodeo in Canada behind ? Calgary’s.
Williams lake is in BC but would the Vancouver Humane dorks go there and try to stop it ?
F*ck No ! They’d get their asses handed to them by everybody in Williams Lake.
They attack Calgary because it’s in another province and don’t fear a real ass kickin’ which is what they actually deserve.
commented 2016-08-01 22:57:14 -0400
I’d rather go to a rodeo than put up with hipsters. VHS should just stay in Vancouver and shut the f*** up…
commented 2016-08-01 22:42:05 -0400
Yo Andy….mind if i come so you can make fun of my hat?…..bitch!

Andrew Stephenson commented – “It’s not the “metros” crying like a bitch because some kid in skinny jeans made fun of their hat.”

more fantasy – A skinny pant Metro would never make fun of a Cowboy’s hat – - unless he was 1000 miles away and hiding behind a pseudonym and a firewall. – And the cowboy’s response would likely be the same as it is for being pestered by a stable fly.
commented 2016-08-01 22:10:06 -0400
The problem is, these losers get the attention they so so so crave when they go to these events and cause trouble. People should walk by them and spit on them next year.

Great retort report SHEILA
Was at the Falkland rodeo in bc , with the offsprings.
That one has a real country feel to it !!

“Bill I agree, Cowboys threaten the metro’s. Who doesn’t love a show of strength, skill and courage. The left that’s who. If they cared to do any homework they would know that what they say about the Rodeo and the Stampede specifically, is a lie. Or do they know that it is a lie, but the lie serves them. "

It’s not the “metros” crying like a bitch because some kid in skinny jeans made fun of their hat.

I must admit I hate watching those horses during the Stampede….they look terrified.
commented 2016-08-01 21:39:26 -0400
You could explain to these nitwits till you are blue in the face about the animal care and you will get no where. The only reason they come to Calgary is for the exposure, because it is televised on CBC. Btw the canvases for the chucks this year was at an all time low……….wonder why…….. Along with the attendance, I heard it was because of the weather………. But I think they’re just making that up.

They always have an agenda.
Hands off our Stampede!

Good one Sheila, well done.
commented 2016-08-01 20:39:08 -0400
Oh Yeah keep the animosity coming from Hongcouver and their girly-man football team – The Stampeders will be in town in a few weeks to extend the ass kicking we gave you last time.

Richard Man commented – “Hey Vegetarions, my food shits on yours. Lol”

Sweet! Stealing that -might need a wee twist like; Hey Vegans – My food eats your food and then poops on it so it can feed vegans .

I find it fascinating that you never see these vhs types never show up at Hand Hills(the longest continuous running rodeo in N.America)Rocky Mtn House, Ponoka, Strathmore and other smaller venues…do they really believe in their cause or is just about the fundraising?Maybe they realise they wouldn’t be welcome at all…
