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.
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.
