Women candidates "abhorrently disgusting"

  • Print

We get a lot of crazy emails and phone calls here at the Freep, as does every newsroom.

My fave is the anti-Hydro guy who sends me anonymous brown envelopes full of cut-and-paste rants about the rats, "fast-talking, slick con-men" and "blood-sucking unions" that run the province.

Someone once sent my colleague Carol Sanders a blow-up photocopy of one of her stories covered in racist profanity. We posted it on the bulletin board until we realized kids often tromp through the newsroom on school tours.

Anyway, this email was particularly timely, since I am working on a story for our Democracy Project about women voters. How did he know?

 

Subject : NDP PRACTICES SYTEMATIC EXTREME BIAS & DISCTIMINATION AGAINST THE MALE GENDER IN NOMINATING CANDIDATES FOR POLITICAL OFFICES !!!

Upon observing the elected NDP MLA's in South Winnipeg , it is abhorently disgusting to find out the obvious. There is NOT A SINGLE MALE NDP MLA IN SOUTH WINNIPEG !!! WHY ??? Just about all the NDP MALs in South Winnipeg are FEMALES !!!

Is it because Winnipeg and Manitoba has run out of MALE POPULATION or what ?

My investigation amply shows that NDP's political machinery responsible for selecting and eventually nominating the candidates is BLATANTLY BIASSED and DELIBERATELY DISCRIMINATORY AGAINST THE " MALE GENDER " Frankly , I am DEEPLY OFFENDED upon this systematically practised policies of ARROGANT NDP that has been shoved down our throats SHAMELESSLY. It is abundantly crystal clear that in order to CURRY FAVOUR with the female votes , the NDP is trashing supressing and preventing the MALE GENDER from getting nominated. SHAME ON YOU NDP.

It is high time the NDP conducts a thorough investigation as to why the bloody hell there is NOT A SINGLE MALE NDP MLA IN SOUTH WINNIPEG.

DECENCY & GENDER BALANCED POLITICS DEMANDS AN EXPLANATION SPECIFIC TO SOUTH WINNIPEG'S DERAGATORY PRACTICES AS IT RELATES TO MALE GENDER NOMINATIONS.
