“Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up!
Are we having a flashback to the U.S. presidential election campaign or perhaps the Trump victory tour afterwards?
No, how about a rally on the steps of the Alberta legislature where former immigration minister and federal Conservative candidate Chris Alexander was speaking.
When riling up the crowd over NDP premier Rachel Notley’s planned carbon tax, the crowd started chanting, “lock her up” Trump style.
Alexander did nothing to stop the chanting which has drawn scorn from his own party and as well as the official opposition.
Not surprisingly most are shaming him for his actions, reminding all you can’t lock someone up because you don’t like their policy, that’s democracy and what your vote is for.
I don’t support this action, it only undermines the credibility of any group.
But in throwing another conservative under the bus and ignoring the root causes of this growing pubic disdain, are we not repeating the same mistake Americans made last month that paved the way for Trumps rise to the White House?
This isn’t about race, religion, left or right.
This is about the silence majority middle class who are fed up with the status quo that continually ignores them.
Policians better take note, or fear the results we have seen in the U.K. and U.S.A.

Donald Trump is Time’s ‘person of the year’. Surprised?
