CBC’s “government comedians” joke (and lie) about #Elbowgate — and we pay for it

Rebel Staff
 

The CBC hires dozens of comedians. With your money, of course. Not just their flagship government comedy show, "This Hour Has 22 Minutes," but for something called "Punchline."

Now as you've heard, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau got into a spot of bother this week. It was a PR disaster.

Well, enter the government comedians.

I’ll show you the unfunny #Elbowgate “jokes” your taxes paid for, “jokes” that made fun of… anyone who was disgusted by Trudeau’s temper tantrum. Oh, and "Punchline" just happened to leave out some important details about the story, to make Trudeau look even better — and the rest of us look dumber and more petty.

PS: If you’re as grossed out by the government comedians at "Punchline" as I am, go to SellTheCBC.ca and sign our petition. Don’t silence these unfunny losers. Just stop billing taxpayers for them, okay? That’s the real joke here.

NEXT: TheRebel.media’s own Brian Lilley joins me to explain why the Liberal's firearms policies should make gun owners worried.

THEN: Sheila Gunn Reid talks about the negative impact a federal carbon tax would have on Canada.

For the love of God, the next Conservative leader had damn well better make defunding the CBC a priority.

Liberals are all about imposing gun control on law ambition citizens while playing hug-a-thug with criminals.

As the climate change scam unravels, the Liberals & NDP double down on their BS. How bad do they have to make things before the Canadian people wise up to them? Stay tuned.

The MSM, led by the propaganda machine, the CBC, are being paid to lie and deceive the Canadian people. I don’t read their hogwash, and avoid anything they spew out as news. In fact, I never believe a thing in the news anymore. Those who have been wined and dined by these criminals, deserve what happens to Canada. The biggest liars on the planet, are professors, politicians, and the media. The deck has been stacked by those who lack integrity. The only thing they possess is greed and envy!

The CBC is Canada’s Pravda . . . still campaigning for the Frog Prince Trudough Canada’s Mental Midget PM.

Give it up. The CBC is not going anywhere.

Liberals create $1.4BILLION annual payment to CBC. CBC goes unaudited and pays off CTV, Torstar, National Post and CanWest to write what they are told to write.

Liberal agenda is promoted by the Media Party as Canadian values.

And you deserve this Canada – you vote for the child of whorebag rock band prostitute and you can expect the same treatment a prostitute would get.

Remember, Trudeau was old enough to know that his mother was getting gang fucked by rock bands instead of raising him.

And now this psycho is running Ottawa. Good job Canada.

Correct.

Taxpayers will continue to get ass-fucked by Bernie Trudeau to the tune of a $1.4 BILLION annual handoff to the CBC so that CBC can continue to have CTV, CanWest, Torstar, Postmedia and all the other Media Party fuck offs paid to promote librano socialist policies as Canadian values.

And Canadians deserve this financial raping handed out by Bernie Trudeau – Canadians are too naive to think for themselves, to the CBC does it for them.

So shut the fuck up you stupid Canadians, listen to the CBC and do what it tells you to do.

Cocksuckers like Anonymous when they are between sucking off Soros and sucking off Trudeau sessions actually know what they are talking about. Suck away Anonymous you gross pig!!!

22 Minutes is a show spawned in the maritimes where being in receipt of welfare and EI is an accepted way of life.

So what is CBC funding at now? 1.6 billion, or about 3.2 million for every viewer.

The only good thing about CBCs so called Comedy Show, is the fact that Prime Idiot Trudeau is the only one viewing it.

If the Prime Idiot imposes a Carbon Tax on Canadian Citizens, using man made carbon as an excuse, He will be subject to being charged with fraud, by the International Court. It is a crime under International Law to use man made CO2 emissions as a tool, to collect money from the public.

With enough taxes we will not have any pipelines, oil, gas and certainly no coal. How much tax do collect on zero revenue at any tax rate. You guessed it $0.00!
The clean energy program is a way to population reduction through starvation.

liberals always talk out of both sides of there mouth, it’s the only tradition that has meaning to them. We would be be way ahead without them.

Tudope, is a racist, out of his own month, québec is a much better leader than Alberta, NO, better everything Alberta. In short, there are a superior race of masters.

Wake up Alberta, he will waist Alberta to fund his mission.

I don’t know any CBC comedians. I got tired of old sleeping pill Mansbridge a long time ago and I now never watch CBC programs.

Ezra’s monologue on unfunny taxpayer-financed “comedy” makes me think back to when NBC fired Norm Macdonald from Saturday Night Live because a company executive decided that he was “not funny.” Here’s an example of one of Norm’s jokes that the Top Banana didn’t like:
The paralyzed actor Christopher Reeve said that the comedy of his old friend Robin Williams has helped give him the strength to carry on. Reeve also said that, on the other hand, the comedy of Pauly Shore made him want to beg for the release that death would bring.
Well, I thought it was funny as hell…
