Conservatives bullied teenage Ala calling her “raghead slut”, candidate’s sister says

Conservatives bullied Ala Buzreba on social media when she was just 16 years old calling her “raghead slut” who should “go back to where she came from”, which prompted the Liberal candidate for Calgary Nose Hill to post the offensive tweets that eventually forced her to drop out of the race, according to her sister.

“These were grown up men and women well over the age of 35 year old picking on a 16 year old kid – telling her that she is invalid, a terrorist, corrupt, worth nothing, a raghead slut who doesn’t deserve life and has no place in Canadian society – that she should ‘go back to where she came from.’” Zehra Tajouri said in a Facebook posting. “These grown up adults with kids of their own were picking on a high school student and when that student replied to them in the same anger, they screenshot her response and victimized themselves as if they were innocent.”

Buzreba stepped down on Tuesday, a few hours after apologizing unreservedly for her offensive tweets, including telling a staunch defender of Israel: “Your mother should have used that coat hanger.”

In another occasion she responded to a racist tweet with “go blow your brains out you waste of sperm.”

“I apologize without reservation for the comments I made a long time ago, as a teenager, but that is no excuse,” Buzreba had tweeted in her apology before stepping down. “They do not reflect my views, who I am as a person, or my deep respect for all communities in our country.”

Buzreba has been receiving messages of support from the members of the public who have been critical of the way mainstream media failed to provide context for Buzreba’s offensive tweets.

“I was pissed they never reported why she went off,” Patrick Bell of Calgary said. “Typical mainstream media just gives you little bits of the story. You know she was provoked. She was also at a very tough age for a teenaged girl.”

“A classic example of quotes being taken out of context,” Calgarian Danny Hogg said. “I knew Ala at the University of Calgary, and she seemed like a very nice person. She has been completely misrepresented by the media. Who hasn’t said offensive things as a teenager?”

    As Chris Alexander said, people like Ala Buzreba who wear niqabs are terrorists. I think she did Truedope a favour by dropping out. No sane Calgarian would ever vote for a niqabi jihadist.

    Canada is a nation built on European-Christian value. There’s no place for this barbaric sand people.

      I take that back. I really don’t know what came over me. I love the fact that our country is made up of so many people from different and interesting cultures.
      I wish that the media had presented the facts in their entirety so this fine young lady would be free to pursue her interest in politics.

      I apologize for my previous comment. Sometimes I drink too much and my extremely low self esteem causes me to project my self loathing onto others in a rude get telling manner.

    Ala. U look gorgeous in niqabs. Why are people so shallow to judge U from what U wear? Your good heart & action will conquer people around U. I hope U will run again in the nearest future. U represent the new generation of Canada; and new approaches to politics.

    Question – This article begins with Conservatives, is this refering to a type of people or to the political party?

      Typical… no less than 7 Lib MPs resigned or in (even a Minister) have been either controversial or just outright stupid
