Anne McGrath apologizes for communist past, Chinese immigrant warns of socialist danger

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

A community “All-Candidates Forum” was hosted in Calgary-Varsity this weekend. On Sunday, each candidate running for office (including former communist candidate Anne McGrath) was invited to answer scripted questions in front of a live audience.

After The Rebel reported last week on McGrath’s communist past, she was met with a wide range of boos and cheers from the audience.

The audience, which largely consisted of local seniors, had a lot to say. Heckling and hollering was abundant, particularly when McGrath commended Rachel Notley for her “incredible record”. Perhaps surprisingly, it was the younger crowd which seemed more critical of McGrath’s past.

After last week's viral report following McGrath’s move to call the police on a journalist, even the mainstream media has picked up on her indiscretions.

The pressure on McGrath built up to the point where she was forced to apologize for her decision to run as a communist candidate. The communist-turned-NDP candidate vowed that she no longer holds communist views. Apparently, we can rest assured that Notley’s NDP is squeaky clean when it comes to hidden communists.

Getting the real story out on McGrath has been tough. She has attempted to use police force to sideline journalists, and locals have reported UCP signs disappearing only to be replaced by McGrath signs.

In the online world, moderators for the popular link sharing website Reddit say that any post with the phrase “Anne McGrath” is subject to censorship.

These tactics are typical of communist regimes: Suppression, gaslighting, and more suppression.

Something must be done to get the word out on McGrath’s red record; how or if the news will continue to be spread remains to be seen.

how does one go about with such an apology? and how does one accept it? i can hear the communist now: “i am sorry that several years ago i supported the extermination of large segments of our population”. i don’t care which commie country to look at, they all kill large segments of their populations. “i used to think that anyone that resisted a communist dictatorship should be executed, but that was the old me, now i want you to vote for me. you can trust me, really”.

Dan, Micheal Savage states that “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder”!

Canada as we once knew it is lost forever, unless we get rid of the Liberal/Socialist indoctrination of our young people in the education system, get rid of “multiculturalism” in Society (because it just doesn’t work), get rid of “bilingualism” in Canada (anyone who still wants it can move to Quebec), get an Electoral College based system for Elections like they have in the USA, & Gov’t employees, SA Recipients, Felons, Non Citizens can’t vote. Make it law that anyone running for public office has to pass a business experience test, AND most importantly. get someone with Business Experience to straighten out Canada again.
At least the USA has a chance with Donald Trump leading the way back!

The irony is just too “delicious” to let by without comment… Actually, Flush Notley DOES have an “incredible record”!…. One which will see NDPers drowning their sorrows in dimly lit saloons for the next two generations…

What is a Communist ?
It’s a Socialist without a gun !

That old fool in the blue jacket was your typical lefty progressive liberal that can only see their own indoctrinated marxist ideology, agenda and narrative, and cannot or will not answer a question, cannot hear the question, will only blindly and belligerently spew their irrational BS when asked a question…which proves, really, their delusional mental disorder.

Hyenas don’t change their spots and neither do dirty stinkin Commies, McGraft, you dirty stinkin’ Commie.
If you are so sorry for being a dirty stinkin’ Commie, why didn’t you apologize for being a dirty stinkin’ Commie before you were exposed by Keenan and THEREBEL for being a dirty stinkin’ Commie?
Why was your first instinctive, dirty stinkin’ Commie response to call the state thugs to shut down legitimate questions about you being a dirty stinkin’ Commie?
You are worse than a dirty stinkin’ lyin’ politician Mc Ratt…you’re a dirty stinkin Commie, lyin’ politician!
So take your dirty stinkin’ lyin’ Commie BS and leave…there’s no place in Alberta or anywhere else in Canada for any dirty stinkin’ lyin’ Commie scum or their dirty stinkin’ Commie lies!
Can I make that any clearer for you?

Among the various interview subjects here, I agree with the lady who identifies herself as an immigrant from China. Much more than any of the others.
Her comments are bang on, she knows what she’s talking about, and her opinions are very well articulated and well worth hearing.
So, as a person who actually found Anne McGrath’s campaign literature in his mail box in Edmonton way back in 1984, please forgive me for distilling the lady’s comments down to six simple words:

Once a commie, always a commie.

I’m skeptical of Ann McGrath’s apology. Politicians will say ANYTHING to get elected. I believe the immigrant lady when she said that Ann still holds the same opinion of communism which she had in 1984.

NDP and Communism , SAME SH*T DIFFERENT PILE! If the NDP had enough power they would be the same as any other Communist party.

Keean, you should have shown the crowd the video of Anne calling the police on you for asking her questions.
commented 2019-04-08 18:37:05 -0400
McGrath’s admission and apology is like Martha Stewart confessing to baking cakes and vowing to never bake another one.
commented 2019-04-08 18:21:00 -0400
Good job Keean!

She doesn’t realize it, but she didn’t just acknowledge her inclinations, she acknowledged that Rebel is real journalism and can’t just be ignored. If course, you and I knew that, but now she’s admitted it too!

There’s gotta be a shark somewhere hungry for some communist chum!!!!
