In a bizarre woke social media post, a top Canadian Conservative Party MP asked for “forgiveness” because of her “cis/straight/white” privilege.
Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) MP Michelle Rempel Garner, currently the shadow minister for health, wrote: “I humble myself and ask forgiveness, and seek to make things right.I have privilege; I am cis/straight/white. But I am also a woman who works in a system dominated by white maleness.”
“But no excuses. I will do what I can. That is all I can do, but it is much,” she said on Tuesday in response to a tweet by activist Amira Elghawaby, a board member of the Trudeau-funded leftist Canadian Anti-Hate Network (CAHN).
The tweet was met with disbelief by some, including People’s Party of Canada (PPC) leader Maxime Bernier, a former CPC minister under Stephen Harper, who stated: “OMG. This is a ‘Conservative’ MP.”
To what constituency is this forced confession appealing to? Those who seek to induce these increasingly common spectacles of self-flaggelation will almost never vote Conservative. And most Conservative voters would find this kind of identity politics mea culpa cringeworthy. https://t.co/FykhTsiqAf

Former newspaper mogul Lord Conrad Black also commented on Rempel Garner’s tweet, saying: “To what constituency is this forced confession appealing to? Those who seek to induce these increasingly common spectacles of self-flagellation will almost never vote Conservative.”
“And most Conservative voters would find this kind of identity politics mea culpa cringeworthy, Lord Black added.
With just over 100 likes, the tweet garnered over 1,000 replies and over 300 retweets, all but some two dozen of them quote retweets commenting on the tweet itself.
“When did you become so Woke, Michelle?” one user asked, while many others stated that they would not be voting for the Conservative Party again.

Rempel Garner’s tweet came after she released a statement on the killing of four members of a Muslim family in London, Ontario, that took place last weekend.
Days after the incident — which saw Nathaniel Veltman, 20, allegedly run a Muslim family over with his truck — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declared the killings a terrorist attack, which Rempel Garner also said in her statement.
While police say that they believe the killings were intentional and caused by anti-Muslim hatred, they have yet to bring terrorism charges or explicitly state the attack was an act of terrorism. However, they said they are considering such charges.Follow Chris Tomlinson on Twitter at @TomlinsonCJ or email at ctomlinson(at)breitbart.com

LGD battled through the group stage, earning a top seed and a spot in the upper bracket of the playoffs, where they defeated Alliance, Nigma, and T1 before ending their run with a 3-0 sweep of North America’s top team.
EG, who also earned a spot in the playoffs through the group stage, tore through the lower bracket to reach the grand finals. Their run included ending NoPing e-sports, TNC Predator, and Nigma’s chances at directly qualifying for The International 10, and beating both Vici Gaming and T1 to reach the AniMajor’s summit.
Despite being swept, EG kept things competitive in the final two games of the series after being blown out in game one. The NA team led for more than 40 minutes in game two but failed to close things out, losing the biggest fight of the series and dropping to 0-2.
LGD finished third at the ONE Esports Singapore Major earlier this season, losing to EG in the upper bracket finals before being eliminated by the eventual tournament winners, Invictus Gaming. EG fell just short of beating IG at the previous Major and now take another second-place finish behind a top Chinese squad.
Both LGD and EG were already locked in as the top two seeds for TI10 prior to reaching the finals and will now prepare to battle for their share of more than $40 million in Sweden starting on Aug. 5.
