I’ve been thinking. Yes, it’s dangerous but it’s what I do.

In my (admittedly limited) conversations with people from the Mark Dyrholm campaign, there have been references to some form of “purge” afoot.

A Facebook chat I had weeks ago with Craig Chandler comes to mind. In that chat, Craig references information I am “not privy to.” Sure. Hidden agendas and veiled threats. Innuendo and whispers.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Craig’s personality style has made him enemies. So it wouldn’t surprise me to find he had received some nasty emails or phone calls. However an active, deliberate “purge” of a contingent of party members? That’s a bit far fetched.

The reality is that the “purge” notion is an excuse. A front. A justification to explain reasons why Dyrholm might not be elected Leader. It’s an interestinn strategy. If Dyrholm wins, it’s a victory against prejudice and shady tactics. If Dyrholm loses, it’s because of a hidden agenda to “purge” certain elements from the Wildrose Alliance.

This is yet another reason to simply support Danielle Smith. I have no time or patience for perpetual professional victims with a conspiracy-theory mindset.

Chandler is his own worst enemy, and he’s taking a good person – Mark Dyrholm – down with him.
