PC riding president shares thoughts on Trump, Muslims, climate change, and “libtards”

The president of the Kiiwetinoong PC Association and former staffer to a Conservative cabinet minister was a campaign manager until this afternoon.

Anne Ayotte seems to have quite a few opinions…

Ayotte is the Ontario PC Party association president for the northern riding of  Kiiwetinoong having previously served as a staffer for Greg Rickford – former cabinet minister and current PC candidate in Kenora-Rainy River.

Until this afternoon, she was also helping run the Clifford Bull campaign in Kenora-Rainy River.

The comment in question appears to be a recently deleted tweet calling for “Islamism” to be “eradicated.”

But that particular tweet may have only been the tip of the iceberg.

In fact, the PC activist’s remaining posts and retweets on the subject of Muslims and Islam are copious to say the least.

 

A favourite theme of Ayotte’s posts is supposed links between “Islamists”, Justin Trudeau and the governing Liberal Party – which she claims has locked up the “terrorist vote”:

Ayotte also shared a September, 2017 post by conservative commentator Tarek Fatah which called the NDP the “Niqab Democratic Party.”

More recently, Ayotte shared a tweet of Fatah’s containing an Islamophobic image that reads “Ten Commandments for Muslims.”

While Muslims and Islam seem to be her favourite topics, Ayotte has also been vocal about her views in other areas.

Here are just a few examples:

On Liberal voters: 

On the CBC and how Fox News is “honest television”: 

On “libtards” and lowering the voting age: 

On…????

On Donald Trump, Trudeau, and “globalists”:

On feminists and the gender pay gap: 

On antifascist protesters: 

On climate change: 

Ayotte was reportedly acclaimed as president of the Kiiwetinoong Provincial PC Association in late February.
