Yesterday our Alberta bureau chief, Sheila Gunn Reid, was hit in the face by an NDP thug, right on the steps of the Alberta Legislature.
Sheila had gone there to report on a left-wing "Women's March." It was basically an NDP rally against Donald Trump. So: the usual professional protesters from the left.
Of course, the event was dominated by NDP men. One of them saw Sheila, and recognized her from The Rebel.
He started arguing with her; then swearing at her; then he said he'd hit her -- and then he did.
All while Sheila's camera was rolling.
Even more incredibly, the NDP women standing right there, who saw the whole thing, immediately blocked Sheila, and helped the thug scurry away. They sided with the male criminal, against the female victim.
So much for women's rights. The NDP doesn't even believe women should have the benefit of the Criminal Code, if they're conservative.
Even more incredible, a photographer from the Canadian Press named Jason Franson was right there, taking pictures the whole time. But he didn't publish any of those pictures; he didn't support his fellow journalist. He actually pushed Sheila, too -- and verbally disparaged her.
Violence against women; blaming the victim; helping the criminal get away -- all at an NDP "Women's March".
Obviously Sheila went straight to the police, who are investigating. But the criminal is still on the loose.
I need your help to find this NDP thug, and bring him to justice.
I will pay $1,000 to the first person who gives us information leading to the arrest of this violent NDP pig. Ask your friends, send his picture around, go through Facebook pages.
And send me all the info, at firstname.lastname@example.org. First one to catch him gets $1,000.
(Please do not take the law into your own hands, however tempting. Leave the illegal violence to the NDP street thugs -- that's not how we behave.)
I thought Alberta was safe for journalists. But not under Rachel Notley's NDP.
Remember, Notley herself set the tone last year, by sending an armed sheriff to block Sheila from the Legislature. And she ordered the NDP's Justice Department to send Sheila a letter, banning her from all government premises.
Yesterday, one of Notley's thugs simply followed the message from the top: silence Sheila at any cost.
And I'm here to say:
No. We're going to find you, you violent thug, and you're going to jail.
Send your information to email@example.com
P.S. There is no way I'm letting Notley's thugs intimidate Sheila. So from now on, I'm sending her to public events with a professional security guard.
(UPDATE: January 24, 2017) According to an Edmonton Police Services press release, Jason Dion Bews, 34, has been charged with assault and utter threats.
Where's Dave when you need him?
got to love the sign in the background that no one is free when anyone is oppressed.......ironing
Doesn't there seem to be a schism with left wing protests?
They always claim to be peaceful, but when someone in them commits an act of violence the rest of the crowd quickly ushers them away rather than holding them in place until the authorities arrive.
It would appear to be tacit endorsement of their behavior, and aiding/abetting a criminal act in many cases.
Even the woman in the video witnesses the assault and her response is "you have every right to be angry, I'm pushing him away"
Looks like Trump needs to build two walls now.
