I’ll be pullin’ double duty at this one. Also, if you’re into some serious country/rock n roll music, don’t sleep on LIQUOR MOUNTAIN.
Looking like every suburban dad who gets drunk and angry at his kid’s hockey game, Lorne Gunter has an important message: climate change isn’t real and the NDP want to “muzzle” anyone who disagrees.
In his latest garbage post for the Edmonton Sun/Journal, Gunter helpfully links his dear readers to such reputably truthful sites like Breitbart News and everyone’s favourite sun-blaming billboard enthusiasts: Friends of Science Calgary.
Let’s be clear what Gunter and, by extension, PostMedia are doing here. They’re not stupid enough to doubt what almost all the scientific community is warning us about. What they’re doing is sowing doubt, misinformation and mistrust in our government to advance their agenda.
And what is that agenda, you might be wondering? I honestly have no fucking clue. I suspect someone like Gunter doesn’t deal well with change (i.e. having actual females make decision about our economy), and truly, if there’s a business model that’s shown itself effective since the black Kenyan Muslim was elected president, it’s in stoking fear, bias, racism, rage and misinformation.
Gunter, do you want to go back to the time when old, white oilmen ran our province? Honestly, what is your fucking endgame? You know, we can still protect our extremely fragile environment at same time you go to weird coke parties with two-bit players in Alberta’s oil industry. WE CAN HAVE THEM BOTH LORNE!

Thanks to Abram Hindle for recording the whole damn night.
From an upcoming Mint Records comp, here’s Edmonton’s Jess Jalbert doing Godley and Creme’s “Cry”. Recorded by that virtuosic scamp Renny Wilson.
UPDATE: Well, Sandra Jansen now needs a security detail because of all the death threats.
When Don Braid and the Calgary Herald are on your side, you must be doing something right.
In an unprecedented move, new NDP MLA Sandra Jansen used her Member’s Statement to lay bare all the terrible, awful shit (mostly) men have said about her on social media. It seems a percentage of weak, insecure men can’t stand the thought of a female as their political representative.
This is all extremely tough to hear, but absolutely necessary. I wonder how former PC MLA and rank victim-blamer Janice Sarich feels now. Going by her Twitter feed, she seems to have inexplicably fell silent. You don’t say…
So, my question to unscrupulous glob of uncooked pizza dough Jason Kenney is this: are you going to accept these tactics and allow your followers to continue to harass your opponents with vile sexist and violent attacks? Or are you going to do the human thing and denounce it all? I wish I was confident you’ll do the right thing, but as we’ve seen, you’ll do pretty much anything to win.
Want to know what Star Wars Kid Jason Kenney’s vision for the “right” in Alberta is? White, Christian men who are afraid of women, LGBT people and anyone that dares challenge their masculinity.
Interim PC Leader Ric McIver wished her well. I’ very curios as to what Mr. Kenney and Mr. Jean have to say.
Welcome to the NDs Mrs. Jansen!
