CBC refused to show Charlie Hebdo cartoons, but has no problem publishing images of Harper as Jesus Christ

Dean SkoreykoRebel Blogger

During the height of the Charlie Hebdo news coverage, the CBC went out of its way to not run the cartoons which caused Islamic terrorists to sweep through the office killing the Paris newspaper’s staff:

CBC News has decided not to publish cartoons from Charlie Hebdo that feature the Prophet Muhammad.

“This is not a ban, and it isn’t censorship,”  David Studer, CBC’s director of Journalistic Standards and Practices, said in an email on Wednesday, reminding news staff of CBC’s long-established policy.

“We are being consistent with our historic journalistic practices around this story, not because of fear, but out of respect for the beliefs and sensibilities of the mass of Muslim believers about images of the Prophet​. Similarly, we wouldn’t publish cartoons likely to dismay or outrage mainstream followers of other religions​.”

Yet when the Canadian Press ran a ‘story’ based on a collection of internet tweets started by the NDP-backed Broadbent Institute, the CBC had no worries about outraging Christians:

The hashtag #CPCJesus has been trending on Twitter in Canada after Vancouver Conservative MP Wai Young made remarks comparing the political party to Jesus.

Which including these photo-shopped images:

Because no Christian will fire-bomb or storm the offices of the CBC and CP with assault rifles.

Terry Rudden — I’m with Prince Knight. Glad you’re still here, and sorry that someone did that to you. Creepy.

CBC = Canadas Bad Convenience. I would wonder what left wing political nutjob at CBC deems it fine to show these images(cartoons) but thinks the CH cartoons are terrible and can not be published ??
this is like in Calgary where all the black welfare (bums) families can openly discriminate against Canadian white families
but not vice versa??? when in reality neither party should be doing any such thing and ones as bad as the other when doing so

Privatize the damn thing. Let those who like it pay for it.

never mind this ..never mind terry milewski spitting in a smarmy manner every time he mentions conservatives or the same talking heads spewing the same spew daily…what is truly the national disgrace is the opinion shaping used on cbc.ca comments…….the automatic most licked comment is invariably a hate fest for a few hundred but combine that with one sided censorship… i love you ubare dacrock.. a bargain at $1.1 million per day..

Under section 15 of the Charter, each individual is equal before and under the law without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.

Religion in Canada is privatized. The feds removed religion and washed it from their hands. Corporate religious litigation in the courts is dead. Nether side has an argument because GOD has been replaced. The CBC, as a corporation can do what they want regardless where the money comes from. They know the funding cannot be cut due to this picture.

I want the CBC to keep on turning out this stuff. I want to know where the left stand on all the fronts. I’ll keep paying to find out. Or should we torture them to get answers? I think it’s safe to say that the likes of the CBC and other media party outlets are a good thing and will eventually help change the face of the huge Liberal Canadian dominance that has been indoctrinating the western world’s children for the last 7 generations. The tip of the iceberg is very small and that’s what most are privy to. What lies beneath the waves is what most should be concerned with.

Photoshopping pictures of current political leaders into famous pictures of Christ at the Last Supper is offensive and disgusting to Christians. Christians have yet another reason to not watch the CBC. When pick and choose your channel packages become a reality, the CBC will loose even more viewers. This behavior is utterly disgusting coming from a government entity in a Christian country.

As regards the CBC’s anti-Harper, anti-Christian antics, they do it for two reasons: 1) it’s politically correct, and 2) they know Christians won’t violently retaliate.

Nice to see the CBC has such “courage”…

Terry Rudden — You and I disagree on a number of political and social points, but that’s to be expected. We’re different people, with different upbringings and experiences and views.

I read your post below, and likewise was sickened. My sincere condolences. I may not agree with you, even to the point of holding my fingers over the keyboard to refrain from typing what I really think and feel. But for some… uh… “entity”, for lack of a better clean epithet, to go rooting around your blog and use the data against you is beyond comprehension. This shows a complete disregard for others, a lack of respect and caring, and a heart of evil.

Again, my condolences.

The CBC are such Low-life scum . . . they are the poster-child for the incompetent lame-stream media today.
If they existed without my Tax Dollars . . . I could care less what they do or say . . . time to defund these marxists.

Vlad – thank-you for expressing this so eloquently for us!

Yes the CBC who don’t want to offend anyone’s religion and bastion of unbiased politics and accountable to no one.

Just another example of CBC socialists/communists partnering and supporting islamic terrorism and marginalizing Christianity. It’s embarrassing that we Canadian taxpayers finance these animals.

These hate filled communist pigs have no religion – china and russia have no religion either – it does exist as fringe elements, but these dictatorships want religion eradicated.

Why? because these dictators want to be your religion. islam will get wiped out too, but for now, islamic terrorists are the pawns used by the communists like those CBC pigs, to marginalize Judaism and Christianity.

We all know the CBC are a bunch of hypercrites when it comes to demeaning other religions. The problem is, I never here the mainstream media ever say that to them! So that is the biggest question one needs to make. But after seeing this I am going to write to the CBC and show them their hypocrisy! I think all of you should do the same!
commented 2015-07-21 09:08:58 -0400
I for one will miss the commentary Terry – although we seldom agree, I hope you keep posting because then this will turn into another partisan echo chamber like the CBC or Star or G&M forms. The only thing worse than constantly swatting an annoying lefty flea in your ear is having no annoying lefty flea in your ear to swat.

As for the CBC and their snide covert mocking of Christians, what do you expect from militant atheists with situational morality.

Just to set the record straight: no, I wasn’t “banned”. I still read: I don’t comment.
A regular commenter on this site, for no apparent reason, chose to seek out a personal site where images from my old blog were stored, and published the link with some insulting commentary.
The images included some political photoshopping (including a fetching young woman in a bikini with “Ezra Who” written across her tummy), some shots I took at 180 ft. underwater of a Japanese freighter sunk at Truk during WWII, and the first photo of me with my beautiful granddaughter.
All those pictures had appeared years ago on my blog. They weren’t confidential. That wasn’t the point. I was appalled, and a bit sickened, that someone felt so driven to “win” an argument or silence an interlocutor that they’d dig into a personal archive and publish it as an attempt at – well, honestly, I’m still not sure what. To shut me up? To embarrass me? To intimidate?
In my opinion, that crossed a line. Obviously others here didn’t agree, and neither does the Rebel site. That’s fine – every community sets its own norms and standards.
But I have a business, and a family, and a band, and a number of community and volunteer commitments in my community – all of which involved a presence on the web. The Rebel online community doesn’t share my views on privacy or respect, and I don’t choose to expose the other folks in my life to a gutless stalker with no sense of limits.

Ahhh…. Terry Rudden has probably been banned from commenting. His laments were kinda comical.
For a Canadian broadcaster, who is SUPPOSED to represent ALL Canadians, the CBC, once again, fails miserably.
And once again, I am left shaking my head, at the fact that not ONE lame-stream media outlet is pointing out the hypocrisy of the shameful, un-Canadian behaviour of the CBC.
After all, Canada was built on Christian values and morals.

Zee, I just like winning arguments too much! Sorry…

This is mockery of the most degrading kind. This network should be ashamed. Why isn’t upper management pulling in the reins on what it is allowing to be published. I was shocked to see these pictures. I know my opinion means nothing but I am sure Jesus would have a mouth full to say to these arseholes.

Communist Broadcasting Corporation.

Mocking Jesus has a price, and those at CBC will pay it, their just to stupid to know it yet.

But, is anyone surprised? The CBC has lost any sense of good taste, fairness, real humour it may have had. For many years I listened much of the day to CBC, but now days and even weeks pass and I never turn the radio on. They are obsessed with a few topics and the topics are of no interest to me. I do remember laughing out loud at the radio programmes of Wayne and Shuster—1950s. Now the humour is vulgar and lacks real wit. So, I am not surprised that the CBC think it is the soul of wit to portray what is shown here. Not funny, disrespectful—fortunately for them, Christians forgive.

Wasn’t there a challenge to ALL Rebel posters to JUST STOP RESPONDING TO “TERRY
And now your calling it out??? (A TOKEN CONSERVATIVE)

So, where’s Terry on this? You remember Terry, don’t you? He’s the guy we could always count on to run interference on the CBC, claiming it has “millions of viewers”, that it’s somehow unbiased and therefor valid, somehow? (While theRebel and SNN were somehow invalid because for some reason they’re biased when they aren’t supposed to be, or something like that)
Allow me to take the first shot: Brian’s point is that the CBC is two faced, and biased, when it won’t allow the Charlie Hebdo cartoons to be shown on it’s network because of it’s claim to not want to offend muslims, but has no problem broadcasting material that’s offensive to Christians because it’s also offensive to Conservatives. This also hints strongly at cowardice, IMHO, but Brian doesn’t make that point. It clearly and unarguably shows the bias at that taxpayer funded network, and the hierarchy has religious protection rating less than political. Now; your turn Terry! Oh, one request: please keep the argument to the CBC, okay? Nobody’s said anything about any other network, so bringing up some kind of imagined bias or lie from some other network or broadcast personality, like, say Sun or Ezra Levant would be irrelevant to this discussion. What we’re looking for is either some proof that Brian’s lying in his story, or that the CBC was somehow justified in it’s bias. I’m predicting that you’ll be handcuffed by this, but, we’ll see.
