NDP MLA “bravely” tweets support for “war on Christmas” -- Is a courageous Ramadan snub next?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Did you get your non-denominational holiday greeting card from the NDP? No?

Well, me neither. But I know Mike Connolly was sending some out. Mine probably got lost in the mail.

Mike Connolly is the NDP MLA for Calgary Hawkwood. He’s one of those accidental MLAs that stumbled into power in that perfect storm of Wildrose Party betrayal and Progressive Conservative self-destruction last May.

Connelly is a 21-year-old student. And a touch immature, I’ll assume.

He sent a tweet out in the middle of December that said, “Nothing like signing non-denominational holiday cards and becoming an active participant in the war on Christmas.

Ooooh, how edgy, Mike!

I think this is his attempt to poke fun at those Christians who feel like society is secularizing Christmas. This is Connolly trying, and failing, to be ironic.

But it’s not ironic. And it’s not edgy. Christians are literally the safest faith group to make fun of. What will happen to you if you make fun of a Christian? Well, we might send an unsolicited prayer your way or maybe, if things get really bad, if things get too real, we might pull out the big guns and have a bake sale. The mainstream media didn’t even bat an eye at his comments.

This isn’t ironic, or edgy. It’s lazy and predictable and, honestly, cowardly.

Do you think Connolly would make fun of Ramadan? Or Diwali? And what do you think the outcry would be like if Wildrose leader Brian Jean had said the same thing about a Muslim holiday?

Or are Christians the low hanging fruit for leftists like Mike Connolly to make fun of?

Christianity does not own the concept of good works or charity. Good people will continue to do good things, regardless of religion. It just happens that there are some good people that are christians, which explains why good things have happened in the name of christianity.

Don’t be afraid to look at all the bad shit that happens in christian schools and charities. Lots of sexual abuse happened in the christian run residential schools, and lots of financial corruption in christian run charities. The salvation army comes to mind on this one. It is so convenient to hide behind the church when doing immoral things.

And besides, do you really want society to be filled with retards that honestly buy into the concept that if they believe in some guy on a cross, that they will go to this magical place called heaven? Take out the christianity in society, and watch the overall IQ of the population go up.

Hi Mike- As an Infidel please feel free to be critical of Mohammed as inclusion is a strong point of the liberal mindset. Challenging those taught in their holy literature to turn the other cheek is one thing. Challenging those taught to behead , or crucify you in their holy literature for challenging their religion is another matter. Let us know how that works out for you.

joe cressy voted with rob ford on a money issue..he may be the only ndp with integrity…but then again he is still young..

Thanks, Sheila for showing us the bravery of this NDP young guardian of atheism , people voting for a guy just out of the university where he was brainwashed in the communism teachers detergent.

Sam, we have bad soldiers but I do not condemn all the army, we have bad police officers but I do not condemn all police departments, we have MANY terrible politicians but I still vote. Sam try to think of the very large numbers of schools and hospitals that were open by Christians; yes the first and only schools in many cases and the first and only hospitals in many cases……..conditions that existed when this Country was still developing. Think Sam, of all the charitable work still done today by Christians. Rub the hate out of your eyes and see the truth for what it is.

This 20 some thing has been in the indoctrination school system all his life so what do you expect?

FTR, I voted for Harper at every opportunity possible, and I have even worked on three separate conservative campaigns. And are you following every one of my single posts? Because if you were, then you would be aware that I often use the term, Absurdistan. Do you follow the rebel close enough to know what Absurdistan is?

I may have voted conservative, and continue to do so, but in no way does that make me disagree with that NDP comment. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
commented 2015-12-25 00:06:51 -0500
Sam where would that be ……… Canada? Are you even Canadian? Oh you must be one of those new world order cowards, a UN bitch, a Justin fan boy, where the hell is your dignity, can’t think for yourself? I’ve never seen you ever comment on Isis or radical Islam, are you one of those guys? Or a collaborator? you hate this country as bad as Trudeau, wynne and nutley? Sounds like it, wake up and think for yourself for a change. You hate freedom and free enterprise? Tsk tsk .

Not enough sodomites to save his hide, great stuff. The good news if he loses the next election he does not get the MLA pension which only kicks in after 2 terms. The pension issue will prove to be a big reason to get out “conservative” voters !
commented 2015-12-24 21:58:16 -0500
Seems that this moron, Mike Connolly, has decided to remove that tweet he was so proud of.

What a coward.

I just did a quick survey of his Twitter feed, and it seems that Mike Connolly spends far too much time on Twitter. You know, reading the fawning comments he gets from his fellow travellers about what a great leader he is. I guess he has to keep his delusions up somehow. And he seems to be obsessed with LGBT, trans, bi…oh, let’s just say he’s fond of the sodomite vote. Come the next election, he will surely be destroyed – there aren’t enough sodomites to save his hide.

Who said anything about the middle east? Here is a better solution. How about taking your christianity back to your country of origin?
commented 2015-12-24 21:32:01 -0500
How is it that when I bring up that it was the christians who sexually abused native kids in residential schools, that the reply I get is that it was the liberal government that is responsible? It is not like liberal politicians did the sexual abusing, or specifically asked for it to be done. The people who ran the residential schools, who identify themselves as being christians, were the ones that did the sexual abusing. So regardless of what other religions are doing, it does not change what christians have committed in this country. Spare me your christianity is under siege narrative. The reason why there is so much negative sentiment towards christianity, is because people are finally taking a stance against christianity and its oppressive nature. If you can’t understand this, and still continue to think that praying will get you closer to a place called heaven, then you are too far gone.

“ps – as for being “safe”, a lot of the real gun-toting whackos are at least nominally Christian. If you go to a pro-life demonstration you can see how dangerous these “bake salers” can actually be, as they are active participants in the violence when it breaks out.” Andrew: Prove that comment. I seriously doubt that is possible, nor will there be a reply. To everyone else, Sheila, Rebel Staffers, and all others, Merry Christmas!

Christians have become persona non grata under leftist policies. What’s next? Internment and extermination? I’m sure some lefties are considering this in light of Islam’s hatred of western society!
commented 2015-12-24 20:22:43 -0500
Sam, it was Liberal governments that led the awful residential school problems. I guess trying to indoctrinate kids to vote for Liberal scum goes way back. Hopefully you will be vocal against Ramadan in one of those welcoming countries in the Middle East. I am sure you have the guts to do that right? Sadly I am sure you are just another Lib weakling that can’t think for himself.

To Sam Young. What a poor fool you are.

44 years ago I gave Christmas cards to all of my grade 9 classmates including two who I knew to be Jewish and another girl whose Muslim family was fresh off the boat from India. At our 25 year high school reunion, that same “girl” told me that her mother still has my card and she still shows it to friends and relatives at this time of the year. Mike Connolly should hang a stocking on the doorknob of his constituency office on May Day, the holiest day of the NDP calendar because I’ve got a lump of something right here, just for him.
Everybody else, please have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

There’s always IDIOT in this world and Mike Connolly is one of the many! (Specially in NDP)… He is just trying to show how deep he is into this accidental MLA. But next election, let us see and mark this guy how he will do. Most probably 20 voters for him.
commented 2015-12-24 19:53:54 -0500
The NDP making fun of christmas is the best thing they have done so far. We need to purge our canadian society of all things christian. Christianity is responsible for crap like native kids getting molested in residential schools.

We the tax payers are forking over huge amounts of settlement money because of the christian oppressors.

Lets say a prayer for that boy. Merry Christmas everyone!

Typical NDP, has an IQ equal to that of the average room temperature. Hey Mike, go sit on your toilet and prey to your God Carl Marx.

Happy Xmarx.

Happy Christmas Sheila.

Keep up the good work, all you guys at the Rebel are a Big Bright Shining Star in this darkening place we used to love called Canada, well we still love it but it sure gets harder and harder with the idiots we have to put up with.
Remember that the good guys always win.

Sent Mikey (michaelconnolly@albertandp.ca) a note:
Dear Mikey,
That was real classy; your tweet sent out in the middle of December saying, “Nothing like signing non-denominational holiday cards and becoming an active participant in the war on Christmas”, thereby establishing, as is understandable for the left-wing NDP, that you do not represent and, even worse, despise those Albertans who are Christians! Might be hard for you to understand, but you can only make such dumb, inconsiderate comments because you live in a country that was grounded upon Judea/Christian principles. If you have the courage, try being insulting against Muslims in, say, Saudi Arabia, and see where that would get you.
Hopefully, Mikey some day you will grow up and abandon your dreams of a socialist utopia, which, if you know any history at all, turns into a brutal dystopia. Merry Christmas.

A guy walks into a Calgary bar, sits down and orders a beer. He says to the bartender, “Hey, want to hear a good Hawkwood joke?”

The bartender says, "Tell you what…. I’m from Hawkwood. See those two big guys playing pool? They’re from Hawkwood. See those other two guys sitting at the end of the bar? They’re from Hawkwood. You still want to tell your “Hawkwood” joke?"

The man replies, “Not if I’m gonna have to explain it five friggin’ times.”

We’ll stop laughing Hawkwood when you send a emotionally/mentally mature adult to Edmonton.

Hi Sheila. Thank you for the work you do. I look forward to your clips. You are right saying that we Christians are an easy target. We are fair game for the likes of him and others . They think that we are poor meek people. Meekness does not mean weakness. We have a power within us that they can never understand We make be meek but Jesus said we would inherit the earth. We have something in our spirit that they cannot understand so they lash out at it. Be of good cheer. We will have our day too.

Have a very Merry Christmas Sheila to you and your family and keep up the great work in 2016 . Your work is important.
