According to social media posts which date back to less than three months ago, Erica Kelly the NDP candidate for Etobicoke Centre would not be sad to see supporters of the second amendment blown apart in a bloody civil war, largely through drone strikes.
Why Does This Matter?
I would normally go on a long rant explaining how calls for violence are wrong but I think that even the NDP candidate understand how wrong she really is as she awkwardly tried to explain herself soon after.
These comments are nonetheless extremely important and fairly representative of the growing violent and fringe left. They show a movement which is willing to take or discuss violent means as a mechanism to bring about change.
At The Post Millennial that is our red line. Regardless of political ideology, we firmly believe that individuals which freely discuss violence as a mechanism for change are the bane of political dialogue and the most dangerous political actors in the long term.
For this reason, Canadians across the political aisle should be calling for the resignation of this candidate.
There simply is no place for violent extremism in Queens Park.
