SOS Alberta blames Charlottesville murder on private schools

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

In the wake of the killing and violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, the left is co-opting the carnage to push their own political agendas.

The NDP government, for example, is using it to attack their loudest critics in the media: The Rebel.

Future fourth-place UCP leadership candidate Doug Schweitzer is using it to fundraise by attacking us, and get a little press for his otherwise invisible campaign.

And one group in Alberta is using it to attack parental choice.

SOS Alberta (Save Our Students) is pro-public education advocacy group whose Communications Director, Barb Silva, is also the NDP constituency association president for the riding of Calgary Klein.

And they thought they could link the Charlottesville murder to parents sending their children to private schools.

It's one of the craziest things I've ever heard.

In the hours after the attack in Virginia, SOS Alberta sent a series of tweets calling private education segregationist:

“Charlottesville reaffirms for us why we cannot afford to segregate our children. Not by class, race, culture, religion or ability.”

“If we separate our kids under the guise of choice we remove opportunities to celebrate diversity WITHIN schools”

SOS Alberta saw the violence. They saw a woman die in real time.

Then they took to their Twitter account nearly immediately to attack parents who choose home or private schooling as... raising a generation of Nazis.

Can you believe how ghoulish these people are?

In the wake of Charlottesville, it’s becoming increasingly evident that the Left can't let a tragedy go to waste.

For the Left, everything is an opportunity to tell us the state knows best — even murder.

You didn’t get attacked. You did something stupid (or worse) and people spoke frankly instead of peddling your bullshit.

All the left wing loons have gone through the Marxists educational system that we have in Canada.

What convoluted reasoning by people who, at their age, should think better.

How much longer until the NDP is tossed out?

I was blessed to be a homeschool mom for 10yrs. When my kids wanted to attend a public high school they came across abusive immigrants drug dealers and heavy drug users in the bathrooms even witnessed an overdose death. This was a brand new state-of-the-art high school in an upscale neighborhood. It was designed after a prison with lock down corridors & barbed wire. WTF?? We dispize the public school system! I could never promote it when I know they taught me lies. The quest for life is a personal journey and should be respected. At least my kids are honest, understanding and have a strong will Their school friends are basically retarded when it come to common sense and life in general. I knew before I had them they will never enter the public propaganda school system. Too cool for school lol!

Can any of these Marxist left wing imbeciles learn the FACT that secular socialist and communist regimes have killed more people than any other group in all of history? Even radical Islam are rank amateurs compared to MAO or Stalin.

Yeah we should all be brainwashed by the government. The left sure hates independent thought, which explains why they need to be told what to think.

Bill Elder-I so hope your right.

I was wondering when they were going to attack home schooling. It is a big thing in the US, particularly Christians and especially Catholics. Those gall darn Catholics are now producing neo-nazis! I’m sure home schooling will now become the target to discredit any children who have been taught from home schooling, disqualifying them from university or college entrance.
Boy, oh boy. Christians sure do evil things…..don’t they!
Isn’t this pathetic? If ever there was a time to recognize good versus evil…………this is it, ain’t it?

SOS = Slanderous Obtuse Socialists. Your time in power is near the end – be careful of what you say and do because out of power, these crimes will be prosecuted.

Speechless but not surprised.

Well I blame the end of the world as we know it, which is now the new opposite world, on public education. So there.

Are they attacking the islamic schools as well? Oh no, not enough courage. By the way, the neo-nazis in Charlottesville are socialists. Nothing to do with conservatives. This whole thing is a Soros orchestrated event, exactly like what he did in Ukraine which finally saw the removal of their President for a globalist one. The Antifa, BLM and neo-nazis are just a bunch of pawns used by the globalist elite and their people in general are too stupid to notice that they are acting as intended, and end up dead or badly injured.

Thank God Faith was not injured. But I will say this about both the woman killed and the guy who ruined his life forever, and perhaps Faith: When I was about 12 I thought it would be a great idea to shoot my .22 at the tire of an old, broken down, combine we had on a field. The bullet richoched and missed my head by maybe a foot (I felt it buzz by). Stupid way to die averted, lesson learned. Don’t go to white supremacist rallies with ANTIFA thugs (also avoid Afghanistan).

Today women charged with terrorism in Toronto refuses to show up for court . So they try to give her a out by saying maybe she is mentally unfit . Yep that might work . Just like I did not know I could not beat my wife . Or my rights were violated after I was jailed for kill soldiers .

What they’re really out for are the Christian Schools. They want them closed down so that they can groom our children for the pedophiles, and the rape gangs.

It’s amusing that these SJW diversity adherents want everyone to be the same. Equally ignorant.
