WHO ARE SECRET DONORS TO NAZI MEME SCHEME?

 

CALGARY- Philip Schuman could be nominated tonight as the UCP candidate for Calgary-Glenmore, despite having offered to fund a Nazi meme website through his political campaign connection to “older, wealthier people”:

“I have been talking about your account a lot as part of my political campaign,” the UCP nomination candidate said, adding that he’s “met some older, wealthier people that would be interested in helping you out.”

Schuman then told the CBC he had offered similar funds to “hundreds” of conservative Instagram accounts “each month”[1].

Schuman needs to release the names of those secret donors now.

The people of Calgary-Glenmore have a right to know which “older, wealthier” Nazi meme enthusiasts hold sway over Schuman’s campaign, just as Albertans have a right to know whether they are the same secret donors propping up Jason Kenney’s leadership of the UCP.
