A few days ago, Derek Fildebrandt was suspended from the Wildrose caucus for approving a double-whammy homophobic and transphobic comment. Now he has been reinstated:
Strathmore-Brooks MLA Derek Fildebrandt is back in the Wildrose caucus.
The party said in a news release that the decision was made by a majority of Wildrose MLAs after Fildebrandt committed to change his use of social media.
Ha ha, just kidding guys! You thought the Wildrose were more tactful than that. HA!
At a news conference Monday, Jean [Wildrose leader] said the Facebook incident was the latest of several missteps on social media. He wouldn’t specify the nature of the previous incidents.
Could it be that your MLA is a total dickweed, just like you and the rest of your babble-thumping hick party?
Alberta’s official opposition is a joke. With any luck it will stay that way.
This sounds just like the judge who told the Steubenville rapists that they should be more careful with social media. Basically, this doesn’t mean anything at all, just a “whoops, I’ll be a bit more careful about spreading my bigotry about!”
Great American Satan says
wildrose was the name of seattle’s only lesbian bar for a while… ah, they still exist, but i don’t know if they’re still the one and only.
Fildebrandt made his pre-politics living as head of the loathsome anti-government Canadian Taxpayers Federation. I don’t think there is a limit to the awfulness he is capable of spewing into the world. Yet the Wildrose want us to believe they’re past their “Lake of Fire” history!
