NERVOUS NOTLEY: Alberta Premier Tweets Extreme Rhetoric Towards United Conservative Party

Trailing massively in the polls, Rachel Notley tweeted an extreme response to the United Conservative Party in the wake of their leadership contest.

It seems clear that Notley and the NDP are increasingly nervous, as the majority of Albertans now have a party ready to take the province back from the far-left socialist agenda.

Here’s what Notley tweeted:

Huh.

Quite interesting that Notley refers to “divisive” while tweeting an extremely divisive attack on a party supported by a majority of Albertans. After all, if she thinks that’s what the UCP represents, then she also thinks that a majority of Albertans are like that, and why would she want to govern the province when she seems to have such a low view of at least half the residents?

Notley’s tweet is a sign of nervousness in the NDP, which makes total sense considering how far they trail in the polls. 

When they first took power, the Alberta NDP had a great opportunity, and could have pursued a balanced budget, keeping taxes low, and standing up 100% for the energy industry. Instead, they used their shocking win as an excuse to impose a far-left NDP agenda, which has predictably resulted in massive deficits, way more debt, higher taxes, serious job problems, and – combined with the terrible policies of Trudeau – destroyed billions in energy industry investment.

And yet, unhinged attacks can’t distract from the failed NDP record, and that’s a big reason why they are so far behind the UCP in the polls.

Certainly the NDP is seeming more and more desperate although the UCP has to be careful not to get too overconfident. In Alberta there is a strong divide as the millennials tend to be fairly left wing like the Notley government while it is Generation X and Baby Boomers who are more conservative so while conservatives still outnumber progressives, not nearly to the extent they did 20 years ago. Also Alberta like much of the English speaking world is seeing a stronger urban/rural divide where urban areas are becoming increasingly overwhelmingly left wing and rural areas increasingly right wing while… Read more »

Actually, the NDP could have killed it. They could have said, ok no oil, BUT lets replace that with: geo solar wind etc. But they didn’t and they want to kill off coal, which provides 60% plus of the power for AB. They cannot import it from BC, they are already at capacity. The NDP like the Liberals seem to have it easy, promise stuff, never deliver or implement it in a the worst way for the Canadian people as possible. I get it, socialism is the goal here, but even so, you have to keep the populous employed somehow-… Read more »

Desperation is the sign of a personality that is unable to recognize that, having introduced policies that negatively affect those who pay well to have their interests recognized for what they are, soon begin to feel the effects of their disregard for that recognition. If that recognition appears to be dangerous to a political party, then the person that is responsible and immediately affected tends to stoop to desperate verbalizing in order to deflect that reality. We see and hear this every day in our political arenas, provincially and federally. It is, in reality, all part of the political ‘game’… Read more »

She tweeted from the floor 10 min into the start of the session as opposed to listening to the proceedings

Desparation, yes, but the socialist NDP is well organized across the country. UCP will need to fight the national NDP movement, the fringe parties in AB and the federal LPC with its CBC media group. In addition, International & national left wing media such as The Guardian, McLean’s and the Toronto Star will intervene in the Alberta election – guns a blazing to defeat anything “conservative.” Huge challenge is to win over the millenials/young progressives not with lectures from senior citizens or Gen Xers but with stories via the social media and peer opinion leaders they dig. Stories of freedom… Read more »
