Pink shirt hypocrites: Notley silent about NDP MLA Connolly bullying Fildebrandt

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator Sheila Gunn Reid
 

In the Alberta Legislature, life comes at you fast. Especially if you’re NDP MLA Michael Connolly. One week you’re wearing a “Love not Hate” shirt, then all of a sudden you're accused of being the hater.

I’m talking about the alleged altercation between Michael Connolly and Wildrose MLA Derek Fildebrandt after a sitting of the legislature.

According to the three sources The Rebel has spoken to, two witnesses to the event and one legislature employee who watched the security video of the altercation, Mike Connolly confronted Fildebrandt as he walked out of the rotunda with another Wildrose MLA, Prasad Panda.

Then, again according to the same sources, the conversation got heated and Connolly raised a fist in anger as though to strike or threaten to strike Fildebrandt.

But all this crazy irrational acting out and not being able to control one's emotions is not exactly new behaviour from Connolly.

It was just about a year ago that Connolly pulled his last stunt - another crazy childish spectacle down at the Legislature with Connolly at the heart of it. He flipped the bird at Wildrose MLA Angela Pitt during a debate last March.

But the NDP won’t rein him in. Connolly gets a free pass because he’s one of those preening social justice activists the NDP love to claim they are while acting like the biggest bullies around.

No amount of pink shirt day virtue signalling and cloying anti-bullying videos from Connolly and his NDP cohorts can compensate for their own personal behaviour.

Hmmmm I wonder why Global & CBC have not reported any of this? If this was the other way around the news would be all over this. Just remember the joke chant “Lock her up” that lasted 20 seconds that made The National. Media bias is off the charts! Thanks Sheila!

Will be funny when the Islamists forbid the pink shirts, suddenly the SJW’s will go silent on such issues.

Ah Sheila, come on, you know that those bullying rules only apply to Conservatives, I mean, just look at all those little cream puffs in that video wearing those cute pink shirts, they don’t have one bullying bone in their body……..yeah!!!!!

Too bad he didn’t take a punch at Derek. Derek could have had the moron down for a weeks worth of sleep on the return shot.

That video of the Non-Democratic Party Pinkoes was scary with the flat, zombie look they all had. Not a glimmer of intelligent life in any of their eyes. It looked like they were all inbred cousins.

However, the one positive is that the invisible energy minister was present. Maybe that is how her super power of invisibility is overcome, by pulling a pink shirt over her.

Michael Connelly has a lot to learn about the art of a sincere apology. The NDP should take note, bullying of the Wild Rose MLA member is unacceptable behaviour; start walking the walk! Pink shirts and hollow statements just don’t cut it!
Apologies have discernible components:
I am sorry for… (detail what you said or did)
It was wrong of me to…(outline this without making excuses)
I will ….(spell out what you plan to do make sure you don’t repeat the offence)
Can you forgive me?

Sheila – the one minute of hell that you subjected us to (the NDP pink video) must mean the NDP really DO love all of us embarrassing cousins … sewer rats … anger machines!
I feel all warm and fuzzy now.

I hope Notley doesn’t have any of her own children. She has her hands full with her childish and immature MLA’s. It’s no wonder AB is going to hell economically. We have the kiddies in power! He should be sent to anger management classes at the very least.

Regarding the gesture Connolly made to Wildrose MLA Angela Pitt.
When asked about it by the deputy speaker, he lied by denying making the gesture.
However, the sergeant-of-arms saw him make the gesture.
As he headed into the house for the afternoon session Connolly lied twice more, to reporters, initially by again denying making the gesture and secondly by denying lying to the legislature.
Eventually he apologized for something, but it’s not certain if the apology was for making the gesture, or for getting caught making the gesture, or for lying, or for lying about lying, or for getting caught lying for either the first, second or third lie . . .
Notley said she believes that by apologizing Connolly has taken responsibility for his action.
