Alberta NDP deputy premier calls critics “sewer rats”: A lesson about the Left

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Did you see that video from the Alberta legislature the other day? In it, the NDP health minister and deputy premier, Sarah Hoffman, calls her opponents “sewer rats.”

She dehumanized her opponents, in the most grotesque language.

We’re seeing that a lot lately.

Remember Scott Gilmore, the Maclean’s magazine columnist and househusband of Catherine McKenna, Trudeau’s environment minister? He calls Albertans he doesn’t like “pigs”.

But then remember the Rebel rally of almost 3,000 unemployed Albertans at the Legislature back in December? It had 20 seconds of light-hearted chanting, of the phrase “Lock her up,” meaning Premier Notley.

The fancy people freaked out. The CBC’s The National had probably ten minutes on the 20-second chant. Global TV stole our video footage, without credit, permission or payment.

Then shamefully, leading Conservatives lined up to denounce unemployed Alberta oilmen for not protesting their unemployment happily enough.

But the deputy premier, in a scripted comment overseen by six-figure earning NDP hacks, calls ordinary Albertans who dare to disagree with them “sewer rats” — and it’s all fine.

There are two important lessons for conservatives here.

WATCH and see what I mean…

NEXT: Conservative Party leadership candidate Kellie Leitch comes on to update us on how her campaign is going, and her continued objections to the Liberals' anti-Islamophobia motion M103.

THEN: Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein talks about on Leitch's chances, and the Forum Research poll showing that most Canadians object to the wording of M103.

Please stop considering islam as a religion because it is not. It is a socio-political system that encompasses all aspects of life and society: legal system, police, taxes, place and treatment of children and women, education, what you are allowed to do, to say and listen to, how to dress, and on and on. And all of this is supposedly the will of god. The perfect system to enslave the people and make them obey any dictator. Because who can challenge the word of god himself. For that reason, islam has continued up to the 21st c. and will never reform itself. The countries that apply islam are governed by islamic law. It is the law of the country. The Liberals and the left know that and that is why they are lying with M103 by pretending it is a religion. Don’t be fooled, the democracies of the west are all under attack by the elites of the world who want their new world government and want to destroy our liberties and way of life. The massive immigration from islamic countries is their tool to achieve their goals faster.

All I can say is :

Paul Dixon, agreed. The CPC is not the CPC in any way, shape or form. I am a conservative and would stand for what is right, what is common sense, and not what is politically correct or kowtowing to any group. These CPC idiots are just liberals, given all the ammo they have been provided, they can not come out and say/do what is right. Get rid of them all, drain the pond, and as you say, a couple contenders look like they might/could do just that.
Paul McCullough, I hope you are right. Hopefully the common sense folk have had enough and the others who teeter on the edge can choose common sense and take over.

I like Kellie, she is on my short list. Rona Ambrose, all I can say is nice hair though.

Sally – a person can’t have hair & brains too! LOL! Rona is as disgusting as Brian Jean – in that they just sit there and take enormous amounts of Lieberal shit & then say Thank You or “I’m sorry”!
Kellie on the other hand doesn’t care who she pisses off – in fact she does it with class!

- I don’t have a lot of use for Conservatives who are forever apologizing for & disavowing anything Conservatives say or do while ignoring the things leftists say or do. The leftists never apologize for or disavow their own. It’s the same throughout the West.

- Kellie Leitch is my favorite. There are a few others I wouldn’t be disappointed seeing winning but Kellie best represents what I’d like to see happen (& she ticks off all the right people.) Electing Chong or O’Leary is the same thing as handing the Liberals another term.

- The mainstream media in the US wanted John (RINO) McCain to win the Republican primary in 2008 & attacked his opponents -McCain won the primary & Obama won the election. They did the same thing in 2012 with Mitt Romney & handed Obama a second term. In the last Republican primary Republicans had enough of the mainstream media & went for Trump (Ted Cruz was 2nd & the mainstream media didn’t like him either.) I’m hoping Canadians wake up to this manipulation as well.

D Mary: I agree fully – Rona Ambrose and many other Conservative MP’s have been a horrible disappointment. There is so much ammunition out there with which to devastate Trudeau and the Liberals, but they have missed the boat and been ineffective. I think they have succumbed to political correctness as well. And they have been cowardly in not speaking out more publicly for fear of being called names. Unfortunately, the press likely would not give them much ink even if they did speak out publicly. At least we are hearing something from the leadership candidates.

A Rebel Fan: Yes, I knew about the mosque fire in Peterborough, but there was also a more recent fire on the top of an Islamic Centre in Toronto where the gas can was left behind on the roof. I cannot find anything more recent about whether they have found anyone or not.
I also am interested in that bomb threat at Concordia University in Montreal, which was also crazy in that it was a graduate student from Lebanon who faked the letterhead and some of the message on the note that he sent. Does anyone know the motive in that one, or anything about the court hearing.
It is becoming sickening with the number of fake “hate” crimes or outright hoaxes. I hope that someone will chronicle them, although they have already done their damage, in the sense that they elicit all this sympathy that leads to the passing of Motions , and later Bills.

To Ms Hoffman…“Sticks and stones may break our bones, but names will never hurt us”. Digest that, Porker.

Alberta would be better off if ACTUAL SEWER RATS ran this province versus what the NDP destroyers have done to our province.
commented 2017-03-15 10:40:47 -0400
Sewer rats, deplorables, all the same to the enlightened ones. But really, this fat thing as health minister. She should do us a favor and take up the niqab.
commented 2017-03-15 10:29:09 -0400
Worse yet, where in the main stream media this was even mentioned, the articles are clearly written with dismissive language, lessening the severity of the insult. The main stream media is clearly not bothered by the insult and are only reporting the comment because they must in order to not be seen as partisan left wing.
commented 2017-03-15 10:25:02 -0400
Doug Geil said, “she not sorry she said it…she’s sorry she got called out for her and her colleagues disdain for most Albertans…”

Yup! That’s exactly correct.

this ‘sewer rat’ has worn a hardhat most of my working life…i haven’t had much opportunity to wear it in the last two years…are the hardhats the deputy premier is talking about the shiny, unscarred, clean hardhats she wears at photo ops? i revell in the titles sewer rat, pig, deplorable, et al…i don’t accept her apology…she not sorry she said it…she’s sorry she got called out for her and her colleagues disdain for most Albertans…

Apology not accepted Sarah! The MSM think because they say so, that we should all move on and forgive your ignorance. Not a chance! This video is going to be played publicly during the election campaigns. I really hope that we can spring for a few billboards then, with the words that she said on record, coming out of her big mouth. Only a low class fool would utter such an insult, at those who pay for her keep!
commented 2017-03-15 09:32:06 -0400
Hoffman’s apology means nothing.

It is a tactic of the socialist left, deliberately make the insult jab and then immediately apologize to appease the socialist left media but the damage is still done and the insult still remains.

Hoffman’s apology is meaningless.
commented 2017-03-15 09:31:48 -0400
Sally, Rona Ambrose and the entire CPC have been an utter disappointment as opposition, given all the ammo they have been presented, they could be shredding the liberals but can’t even side with what is right; a shining example being the rally at the legislature and the “lock her up” chant… That one was a glorious freeby and they should have been backing up Albertans with full force.

I am heavily leaning towards voting for Kelly with Maxime as my second choice. People I speak with think Kevin has a better chance of beating Trudeau but I can’t see the Conservative in Kevin yet. My biggest fear is that our party will be liberal lite and to me, Kelly is the best choice to keep that from happening.
commented 2017-03-15 08:31:33 -0400
When you look like Hoffman, uttering insults is the proverbial throwing rocks in a glass house. I find it very unconvincing that Sarah Hoffmans’ sewer rat comment was even remotely “off the cuff” as it rhymed and seemed premeditated. Her apology came off as quite disingenuous to say the least. To even utter the words sewer rats out loud makes me wonder what they actually say in private behind our backs. CBC, biased and unbalanced as they are, made NO mention of Hoffmans’ sewer rat comments.
commented 2017-03-15 08:20:12 -0400
C’mon people!
Why do you insist on insulting cows and pigs?
Hoffman should never be likened to either of these animals or any other animal in existence. That would be insulting to the animal.
The “broad”, for that is what she is, should be compared to a dung heap that is full of animal excrement and emitting a noxious odour like raw sewage.

That is about all that she says is worth . . . stinking hot putrid air!

Dump Justin bin Trudeau

<a class="tweet-url username" href="">liza</a> Rosie , I agree with your comment. I wrote a thoughtful but direct note to her constituency office urging the Member to seek medical advise on her blatantly obvious obesity problem.

You have my vote Kellie !

Hoffman is obese and should seek medical help to diagnose whatever problems she has.

Off topic, but i hope many of you are enjoying the HUGE NEWS that Rachel Madcow had with the leaked tax return. It shows Trump paid lots of taxes and a higher rate then even her parent company and Obama , and way more than that filthy communist hypocrite Sanders.

So global stole footage from the rebel? Now that’s a sign that the rebel is doing something right.

Look at this unbelievable ugly creature Hoffman who has the odacity to call us unwarranted names. I am so damn at the fake msm who are already covering for this evil witch.

Isn’t the so-called Speaker of the Legislature going to put a stop at these dispicable ndpees calling Albertans such horrible names. What the hell is he there for…
