Nasty socialist women. Sandra Jansen (left), a pro-abortion, pro-homosexual feminist called all her former conservative colleagues "extremists" and then jumped ship to the far left NDP and is now whining about "name calling" coming from those whom she name called and stabbed in the back a week earlier. Rachel Notley (right) demands only gentle names be hurled her and Jansen's way. Notley is a woman who frequently admonishes (with the help of the lamestream media) conservatives to not say bad things about her, lest they be accused of sexism. However she really doesn't mind the sort of nastiness that comes from her side at all. Notley never did discipline her homosexual MLA Michael Connolly when he compared law abiding Christian gun owners to Hamas terrorists, nor did Notley discipline her pothead bimbo MLA Deborah Drever when she photographed herself giving a middle finger to the Canadian flag. The Notley government's moves to shut down private Christian schools and homeschooling associations that don't embrace sodomy also exposes her authoritarian and intolerant side. It seems the NDP is good at dishing out nastiness but they whine like stuck pigs when some gets dished back their way.
"as shown both by Notley’s conciliatory style and the NDP’s advancement of women and minorities
The above quote is rubbish. The NDP only advances "approved minorities," ie homosexuals and natives who regurgitate approved NDP drivel. The Alberta NDP ruled by a hard left female has certainly not been conciliatory towards small private Christian schools, rather they have worked harder than any other government to shut them down completely because the NDP can't tolerate a narrative other than their own when it comes to sexual morality.
As for the online nastiness? One could argue that having online nastiness hurled your way is a sign of "equality." The left heaps tons of vitriol on male politicians like Trump and Harper. If Notley and this other bimbo who called herself a conservative one day and an NDP the next wants to be treated with the same respect as men then they should take the abuse that gets tossed their way in stride rather than whine like the women they are.
Bill WhatcottDon Braid: Abusive emails aimed at colleague stun Alberta legislators
November 23, 2016http://news.nationalpost.com/full-comme ... egislators
Snatch this column from your kids if you don’t want them reading gross language from an unexpected place — the Alberta legislature.
Sandra Jansen, the former Progressive Conservative member of the legislature, read a list on Tuesday of vile things said about her and Premier Rachel Notley after she crossed the floor to the NDP last week.
They are, in ascending order of disgust:“What a traitorous bitch …
“You are both a disgrace to Alberta, lying bitches …
“Now you have two blond bimbos in a party that is clueless …
“Another useless tit goes NDP …
“Dead meat …
“Sandra should stay in the kitchen where she belongs …
‘”Fly with the crows and get shot …
“Dumb broad — a good place for her to be is with the rest of the queers.”
I’ve probably heard and read a million words from that legislature, but never anything like that.
Jansen’s point was not just to shock, although she certainly did. It was to point out how revolting these online attacks have become, and to call on politicians of all stripes to fight back.
Legislature Speakers are typically evangelical in their rejection of rough language. But Bob Wanner, who did not see the statement beforehand, let her run with it. We have to face it — some men in this province simply can’t stand the sight of a government run by a female premier
Jansen told me afterward: “What I read is not actually the worst of it. There was the one that said we were probably lesbians touching each other behind the podium” (when she and Notley held their joint news conference). Another said she should have been aborted.
We have to face it — some men in this province simply can’t stand the sight of a government run by a female premier, who is in turn supported by a caucus with a higher percentage of women than any other in Canadian history.
Alberta has become a kind of social laboratory, unique in North America, to test whether a near-majority of women in a government caucus makes a change in style and substance. The verdict is already in — they do, as shown both by Notley’s conciliatory style and the NDP’s advancement of women and minorities.
The more obvious this becomes, the more the language escalates. It slimes its way from women to the LGBTQ community and back again.
There are often death threats more specific than oblique hints of shooting and dead meat. Jansen also omitted some language that Wanner surely wouldn’t have allowed: various synonyms for female organs, for instance.
After reading her list, she made what she called a “simple request” of all MLAs:
“If you are stunned by the words you have heard, if you reject the inherent violence behind them and you know that harassment and abuse, even if it’s verbal, even if it’s online, and even if it’s directed at a political opponent, is poison — let us be strong and clear in our resolve …
“Please oppose it. Don’t ignore it. Don’t look the other way. Don’t excuse it. Our daughters are watching us. They are watching the challenges facing women in politics today.
“Imagine if we let that poison become normalized or if our daughters forgo the political arena altogether.
“That scares me.”
Jansen suggests that men who hate this garbage — by far the majority, we can only hope — go after the trolls and out them for the creeps they are.
At the end, she said she was proud to have joined “a pragmatic centrist government which has a place for moderate women.”
Many Albertans will dispute her description of the NDP. Jansen would be glad to hear the objections, as long as you leave out the gender thing.
The legislature was stone silent as she spoke. When she finished, the place erupted in a huge round of applause, not just from the New Democrats, but from Wildrose and the very PCs Jansen abandoned only last week.
She’s absolutely right. This abuse has become a plague, a whole new level of anti-female, anti-gay bile layered over the usual political hostilities.
The wider society has to fight back. And men must be on the front lines.Don Braid’s column appears regularly in the Calgary Herald
