Over the weekend, Jason Kenney was voted in as leader of the United Conservative Party with 61.1% of the membership giving him their vote but of course, progressives went bananas on the internet suggesting the party’s new leader is “asinine” and “scary”.
They unleashed the same kind of rhetoric we’ve come to to expect from the left, but what’s really interesting is the reaction from political strategists and analysts who are comparing Kenney to Donald Trump and suggesting party members are homophobes that are a danger to the LGBTQ community.
Watch as I explain why this makes absolutely no sense on either count.
UCP MLA Dave Rodney has announced his retirement which paves the way for the new leader to seek the nomination in Calgary-Lougheed where his chances of winning are high since it’s a conservative stronghold.
So far, he has seamlessly executed his political campaign plan.
Now, after proving that he can out-organize the left, Rachel Notley and her supporters should be worried.
