This is what we can expect in both the Alberta and Federal Elections, with the establishment media and leftists making up lies in a desperate attempt to stay in power.
In the video below, you can clearly hear Jason Kenney say “uh, a 19-year-old,” in reference to an NDP candidate (the tweet was shared by the candidate Kenney referenced):
Jason Kenney called me a 19 year old last night – as an insult I guess?
1) I’m 29
2) That’s the age he was when he was first elected
3) I’ll take young people getting active in politics over the #OldBoysClub any day #ableg pic.twitter.com/ojZhYphFgH

However, the far-left, utilizing confirmation bias, has attempted to twist the part where Kenney awkwardly says “uh, a 19-year-old,” into pretending he said “a gay 19-year-old.”
Because the left has constantly tried to demonize Kenney and Conservatives as discriminating against lgbt people, many leftists are primed to believe anything bad about Kenney, and are falling for the fake quote:
“There is something sick anout this. We wouldn’t accept this kind of sneering comment about race or gender from a senior political figure. Why would we accept it about sexual orientation ?”

“Jason Kenney (
@jkenney) calling an NDP candidate “a gay 19 year old”, which draws laughter from his party, followed by “now don’t take it for granted, they elected a lot of them last time”. Is this the people we want to vote for?”
The left has tried to spread the false interpretation of the quote, but some have pushed back:
“Why would we go out of our way to hear “gay” when it sounds much more like “a”? (I know Jason Kenney is evil incarnate and everything, but come on.”

Note how even the NDP candidate who first shared the video didn’t even bring up the idea of Kenney saying “a gay 19-year-old.” That only happened later, when the left saw a chance to spread a big lie.
This is what we can expect from the left and the establishment. With the NDP and Liberals terrified of losing their hold on power, they plan to simply make up lies, use confirmation bias, and throw every possible deception at their opponents.
Those of us committed to the truth must fight back.
