Hitler's propaganda chief, Joseph Goebbels, famously said "always accuse your enemies of what you are doing yourself." That's exactly what's going on with Jason Kenney's union-busting Bill 32. It's the UCP & its corporate friends who are gaming the system. #AbLeg #abpoli #cdnpoli https://twitter.com/ABFedLabour/status/1282747563003613184
And, yes, I'm accusing the UCP of adopting tactics pioneered by the Nazis and being implemented right-wing authoritarians today. Hungary, Turkey, Brazil, India, Trump's America. These are all countries led by authoritarians who Kenney calls friends. This is what we're up against.
I’m reminded of the famous poem by German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemoller. People all remember the line “then they came for the Jews.” But the poem also said l “then they came for the trade unionists.” They always come for the unions; because they know we’ll fight them. #canlab
Big shoutout to the online researchers and activists at @TheBreakdownAB for their work exposing the political “data-mining” operations being done by UCP-connected, corporate-funded outfits. Draconian rules for workers; free passes for friends of the UCP. https://twitter.com/thebreakdownab/status/1282659717676843009?s=21 https://twitter.com/thebreakdownab/status/1282659717676843009
Message to Kenney and his on-line incel army of offensive “issue managers”: we see what you’re up to. And we won’t let you get way with it!
