The Liberals Labelling Roman Baber “Alt-Right” Exposes Their Own Radicalism

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on August 14, 2023

Former Ontario MPP Roman Baber was recently acclaimed as the federal Conservative Party candidate for York Centre. He was a big name in the nomination, having previously run for the Conservative Party leadership in 2022, so nobody else chose to run against it.

Baber definitely is a star candidate within the Conservative Party and someone the CPC needs in order to flip a riding like York-Centre blue, a riding last won by a Conservative in 2011 and before that not since 1958. 

But *shock* *gasp* Roman Baber is “alt-right” and “extreme” according to some of the brain trusts inside Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party.

The accusation, regardless of how slanderous, is hilarious if you know who Roman Baber is. 

While Baber did stand up to the COVID-19 lockdown and vaccine mandates, following in the footsteps of former MPP Belinda Karahalios, he is not a fiscal hawk or social conservative. Being more in line with someone like Ontario Premier Doug Ford on fiscal and social issues. Mostly down the centre, with some tendencies to go against the grain when fundamental liberties are threatened. 

Baber is obviously a threat to the Liberals in York-Centre because he is a more liberal Conservative which is why they are now trying to smear him as “far-right” on social media.

Baber shot back at the Liberal MPs trying to attack him, pointing out the absurdity of accusing a Jew of being “alt-right” which is an ideology that is associated with racists and anti-semites. (It should be noted the alt-rights views on economics align closer to the political left and their social views emphasize collectivism and not individualism)

Really all this Liberal-generated controversy has demonstrated is that the Liberals, not their Conservative opponents, are the radicals. They see anyone to the right of them politically as extreme making any accusation or smear is justified.

Kingston and the Islands MP Mark Gerretsen proved this by doubling down while editing his alt-right accusations against Roman Baber.

He is now pretending that he never heavily implied Baber was alt-right and uses Baber’s family’s own holocaust connection in order to try and shame him because he doesn’t “call-out alt-right Conservatism” with no added example of “alt-right” Conservatism in the federal party. 

Well, the Liberals are now on to fear-mongering about Conservative Party leader Pierre Poilievre calling out the left-wing influence network the World Economic Forum. Apparently, it is a“conspiracy theory” to point out agenda items of the WEF they post on their own website and say at their annual conference in Davos.
