Alberta election: Reddit censors posts about Anne McGrath while NDP supporters steal UCP signs

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

Alberta NDP candidate for Calgary-Varsity Anne McGrath is censoring me. She is pulling out all of the stops to make sure that you don’t hear one message: Anne McGrath is a communist.

Her experience running Rachel Notley’s NDP government from behind the scenes these last few years does not negate the fact that in 1984, at a terrifying time for Canadians during the Cold War, McGrath supported the ideology of Stalin, Mao, and Marx. In my opinion, that is treachery.

McGrath is so afraid of this message getting out, she called the police on me for asking her questions while she campaigned in a Calgary neighborhood.

But this attempt to control the message extends onto the internet as well: Messages directly between The Rebel and subreddit moderators on Reddit have confirmed that there was a site-wide filter on all posts with the text string “Anne McGrath”.

Further in McGrath’s censorship plan, residents of Calgary - Varsity have reported that their United Conservative Party lawn signs have been stolen — and replaced with NDP signs. It is not clear if the McGrath campaign is behind this but it does have one resident, Joanne Burrows, upset. WATCH as I talk to her about what happened on her property.

Calgary-Varsity is a university riding. A large student and faculty population make outcome predictions difficult to make. As a swing seat and with current polling data, if McGrath is elected she will be one of only a few NDP candidates to win in Calgary.

Consider this… the NDP were fully paid up members of socialist international during the cold war… a front group for the CPSU… is there any wonder why they would welcome a communist party candidate?

Anne McGrath is a communist . . . .

Notice how small the “Team Rachel Notley”letters are on McGrath’s sign?
Not so proud of your fearless leader are you Anne?

Shrug. There are urban ridings all across the Country where the revelation that a candidate for office was/is a commie would actually increase the chances of winning.

University ridings have no shortage of pampered little sissies who wish to be seen as modern day Guevaras to camouflage the vapidity of their useless existences.

Typical obstructionism perpetrated by someone who is entrenched in the ideologies of communism. Obviously McGrath is afraid of her constituents finding out the truth about her background and beliefs.
The NDP and their supporters have always been and will ever be bullies towards those who won’t bend over for them. I hope they are caught on camera and duly charged for their acts of vandalism, trespass and theft.
Great reporting Keean!

Best thing to do is catch the thieves with someone’s home security camera and charge them.

As to reddit – contact their office, tell them they’re interfering in an election campaign that carries serious legal consequences. Contact the election commissioner as well – even it it’s to track they’re negligence and expose them too if they refuse to act. But they just might. Give it a try either way.

The more the NDP suppress dissent, the worse they look. Let’s hope that commies like McGrath keep showing what entitled pigs they truly are.

I think Keean deserves a lot of credit for his relentless reporting on the Alberta election . Can you imagine how better Canada would be right now if we had even a few reporters like Keean at the CBC.

Communists have no place in Alberta ,this hag should be put on a plane headed for North Korea!! These idiots that have had good lives and have prospered from Alberta’s good fortunes should get the Fck out and take your filthy communist views with you!!!

Keean, hang out at the local gas stations and stores. And maybe use a bull horn like the fascists do!
