Kellie Leitch Campaign: “We will defeat the media in May 2017”

Nick Kouvalis, the Campaign Manager for Conservative MP Kellie Leitch, is confident in Leitch’s prospects to win the leadership of the Conservative Party in spite of the media’s hostility toward her and the repeated orchestrated attempts to portray her as an extremist, bigot and Islamophobe.

In a fundraising email to the supporters of Kellie Leitch Kouvalis wrote among other things the following (January 2, 2017):

Here is a short summary of how the media has portrayed the leadership race and Kellie Leitch thus far:

November 2015 – December 2016:

No one wants to be the leader of the Conservative Party because Justin Trudeau cannot be beaten in 2019.

  • Kellie Leitch cannot win the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada.
  • Kellie Leitch is using wedge politics.
  • Kellie Leitch is using dog whistle politics.
  • Kellie Leitch is a fraud.
  • Kellie Leitch is a racist.
  • Kellie Leitch is a xenophobe.
  • Kellie Leitch is a fascist.
  • Kellie Leitch will never win.
  • Is this a new strategy by the media and the elites?

While the example of Clinton vs Trump is fresh in our minds, we should never forget:

  • The media and the elites said Stephen Harper would never be able to unite the right.
  • The media and the elites said Stephen Harper would never win the Leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada.
  • The media and the elites said that Stephen Harper would never win against Paul Martin.
  • The media and the elites said that Paul Martin would win the largest majority in history.
  • The media and the elites said that Stephen Harper would never be Prime Minister.
  • The media and the elites said that Stephen Harper would never win a majority government.
  • The media and the elites said that Stephen Harper was a social Conservative.
  • The media and the elites said that Stephen Harper was using wedge politics.
  • The media and the elites said that Stephen Harper was using dog whistle politics.
  • The media and the elites said that Stephen Harper was a racist.
  • The media and the elites said that Stephen Harper was a xenophobe.
  • The media and the elites said that Stephen Harper was a fascist.
  • The media and the elites said that Stephen Harper would destroy Canada.

It doesn’t matter what the media and the elites say. The only thing that matters is what Kellie Leitch says. She will seek out the media at every opportunity to speak directly to Canadians. Kellie will continue to use the media to let Canadians get to know her on a personal level. That’s the way to build trust with the electorate.

Kellie has done a great job so far. It’s not easy to take all the abuse, much of it unfair at best and disgusting at worst, but she is mastering the art of ignoring the hate and focusing on delivering the message that most Canadians are desperate to hear.

What will the media do in 2017?

The short answer is that it doesn’t matter.

The longer answer is that the media will get behind whoever they think can defeat Kellie. This is certain. We’ve seen this before with Stephen Harper, Rob Ford, Christy Clark and others. Many of you worked on these campaigns with me and we have defeated the media before. We will defeat them again in May 2017.
