Jason Kenney vowed in a fiery speech to a hotel ballroom packed full of United Conservative Party members that he will embrace the “green left,” and support the foreign money he says is being spent by “anti-Alberta” groups. Saying “if you can’t take an occasional head shot you have no place on Team UCP’s bench ”
The crowd went nuts!
The UCP leader outlined the strategies he would take to defend Suzuki and the oil and gas industry tailing ponds expansion in a hour-long speech that frequently got the crowd off it’s ass and on its feet.
“If I am elected premier of Alberta, I will not repent. I will go to the wall,The Bearded One Brad Wall for grooming tips. I will form alliances. I will go to the Court Painter again and again,” Kenney proclaimed. “I will use every tool available to defend this province against the rat rodents.”
These tools include setting up a “fully-staffed, rapid response love & peace room” within government to softly defend the resource sector and their beautiful and ever expansive tailings ponds and “effectively rebut every lie told about the green left.”
Kenney also pledged to establish a legislature special committee to investigate encouragement of foreign funding behind “the anti-Alberta special interests.”As I’ve said before if you can’t take an occasional head shot,Team UCP has no room for you on the bench!”
He will go to Court Painter if necessary to get the federal government to boost painting commissions for seascapes and Suzuki portrait’s for every Alberta school and honour charities like Tides Canada with seascapes for every preschool in the province.
Kenney plans to travel to Ottawa Monday to appear before the House of Commons finance committee. He plans to bring more equalization payments and the party’s pro-carbon tax resolution that will be passed on Sunday.
The hour-long speech, which Kenney said he wrote himself in longhand with help from Google, repeated many familiar themes.
He came out swinging, criticizing those who criticize the NDP government for taking too long to fight for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, not allying themselves closely with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and for not turning the province into a “fiscal train wreck.” He spoke of embracing partisan rivals as Jesus would do,quoting two of his favourite Bible passages “If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. (John 13:14)and“ For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,(Ephesians 2:14)
The crown was on its feet begging to have them washed!
But Kenney was rewarded with his biggest cheers of the night for stating the NDP was re-writing the curriculum in secret code however engaging in social engineering in the classroom that he approves of, quoting another favourite Bible passage,“I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought. (1 Corinthians 1:10)
The United Conservative Party then passed a motion with great and unanimous enthusiasm to not reinstate opt-in parental consent for any subjects of a religious or sexual nature in Alberta schools.
The crowd was on its feet doing the Bristol Stomp!
“If the NDP tries to smuggle more of their politics into the classroom through their curriculum, we will put that curriculum through the prism of earthly delights and sprinkle it with stardust,” he said.
Former Saskatchewan Premier Brad ‘The Bearded One‘ Wall made some crowd-pleasing zingers supporting the carbon tax and praised the NDP governments in Alberta and B.C. during his speech to the UCP convention Saturday night.
“Thank you for all the advice about my beard,” Wall joked about his new look. “I’m really interested in what you think….do you like I grew one just like Mr.Suzuki’s? He finished up his remarks with a favourite Bible quote,” But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”Samuel 16:7
“I’m going to shave it off when we embrace the carbon tax. Based on this room, I’m think we’re closer to that than we ever thought.”
The crowd got off its ass and proceeded to do the bunny hop!
The Bearded One said if Kenney becomes premier, Saskatchewan will have an ally in fighting for the federal government’s carbon tax and whatever else Justin wants or wears on his trips abroad.
The assembly ended with Jason leading the congregation in a rousing rendition of “The Old Rugged Cross”.
