Dishonest media gives NDP MLA a pass on “raised fists” in Alberta Legislature

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator
 

Yesterday, we received word from sources that NDP MLA Michael Connolly had a heated altercation with Wildrose MLA Derek Fildebrandt at the Legislature. 

While the young MLA hasn’t admitted to raising his fists at Fildebrandt, we were told that witnesses saw it happen and it was captured on security video.

In an article written by CBC’s Michelle Bellefontaine, Wildrose MLA Jason Nixon and Fildebrandt allude to the incident occurring. Fildebrandt says that no mention of the threat was made and only the tone and tenor of the heated discussion was mentioned in an apology made by Connolly.

Of course the mainstream media is generally silent about this and Bellefontaine didn’t ask Connolly whether he raised his fists to Fildebrandt.

The incident has only generated a few stories but you know the routine - not a Tory, not a story.

Just imagine if Fildebrandt was the one accused of raising his fists to a pink shirt anti-bullying NDP MLA? The media would be losing their minds and that’s because it’s not the people watching the news that care about this stuff, it’s the people writing it.

They actually think that regular people care about “lock her up” chants at a rally. Mainstream media journalists aren’t honest. They’re part of the media complex already campaigning for the NDP in the next election. They’re partisan hacks and social justice warriors themselves.

Remember how it took mere seconds for them to find all the details about who owned the cardboard cut out of Rachel Notley that appeared on a golf course? That’s because it fit their agenda.

They’ll write dozens of stories targeting normal Albertans for chanting at a rally but unlike them, I had enough sense to ask Michael Connolly if he raised his fists at Derek Fildebrandt.

He didn’t answer me, but maybe he’ll answer his friends in the mainstream media if they ever bother asking him.

Anyone who is able to think objectively knows these snowflakes will melt in the coming election. The NDP liars, and the MSM are working in tandem to fool the sheeple, who put their blind trust in government. They think the nanny state will take care of them from the cradle to the grave. The only one who can do that, and has promised with his life to care for us, is Jesus Christ. Never put your faith in anything that human beings are in charge of. Live by faith and you will be saved from the horrors that are coming.

…but that is the left – as epitomized by all the card-carrying members of Communist International in the NDP today and yesterday – the biggest two-faced, double standard walking, on the planet. The MSM, in lockstep with them.
This is all a big scam being pulled on us, it’s that ‘Big Lie’ Goebbels talked about, it’s an all or nothing push to bluff us all into not only dismissing these people and their criminal and treasonous scam as a figment of the all-powerful-right’s imagination, but some citizens (and non citizens) are acting as useful idiots in supporting them, far too many.
‘They’ are in control. ‘They’ are going for the big sting. The ONLY WAY ‘they’ can get away with it is if we allow them to…
…so don’t allow them!
‘They’ are Globalists
Know this; the most powerful group in the country is WE, THE PEOPLE!
…if WE can just figure that out.

The CBC has by far the most dip sticks on staff on staff then any other net work.

Just like all bullies – they waddle around (Hippo Hoffman) with much security! In high school – we learned how to effectively deal with that problem – at the appropriate moment – they would get piled on and we’d beat the ever lovin crap out of all of them – including anyone stupid enough to be their security. It works – they go off sniveling in shame.
Remember they start the fight – we finish it!

Unless you are very uninformed or stupid, it is well known now that the mainstream media is no longer objective and are lying or hiding the truth most of time. The only way to send them a clear message is to do like I do: no longer turn on the tv on their news, and do not buy any newspaper or magazine. We have to destroy them with what counts, money. If you don!t do that, they’ll continue to treat you like morons with no intelligence.

If was ever to see some errr non white fellow with a backpack and a strange wired device in his hand with a button on it entering a media party location i will merely hold the door for that person then get to a safe distance and ignore what is happening as it does not fit my world view.

I got an email claiming that there are more progressives in Alberta than conservatives. Food for thought there and a huge surprise for me. Are they so delusional that they really believe that Albertans don’t notice and aren’t fed up with media antics and the Ndp party acting badly?

Canadian Mongrel, I think it is a combination of the two.

Of course the main stream media gives the NDP a pass.

There is very little honesty in the main stream media.

I am glad The Rebel is here. That is the real reason that The Rebel gets attacked, because they tell the truth and the other side of the news.

Well, the reality is that violent behaviours from the left is common place and not news. Violence to the electorate through a carbon tax, or violence with weapons to peaceful right wing demonstrators…all from the same play book and to be expected.

Hence reporting it is a dog bites man story, whereas when the right does something violent, it is very unusual. So maybe that is the reason for the lop-sided reporting by the MSM.

Either or or the MSM is corrupt.
