Twitter message writer Blake Robert, the Tory campaigner behind the initial Twitter messages, claims he was motivated as a new parent to expose Hunsperger:
"Things might have ended there. But that Monday, Danielle Smith came to meet with the Edmonton Journal editorial board. Instead of using the opportunity to voice support for gay rights, she constructed a narrative in which Hunsperger, not gay children, was the victim of intolerance and persecution. The remarkably tone deaf response haunted her for the rest of the election..."
"People are entitled to believe what they want to believe. But when someone's running for public office, they have to be accountable for what they say. I'm a new parent. I don't know what my kid is going to grow up to be. But I want her to grow up in a society where she's accepted for who she is."Recommend this post
