TheRebel.media team is back in Toronto, after covering the Conservative Party’s convention in Vancouver. But other journalists weren’t there as objective reporters. They knew that if there was no scandal or fiasco at this event, they had to invent one.
So they found this woman — a hijab-wearing Muslim Conservative, who was really embarrassed by her party: Urz Heer of Brampton, Ontario.
While cameras were rolling at the convention, she denounced her beloved party for its Islamophobia. Then she did any and every media interview she could, calling the party racist.
But I guess not a single journalist from these massive media companies bothered to even type her name in Google. I did.
The first hit is her Twitter feed. Look: She was at a Liberal kick-off for a Liberal candidate, the Muslim extremist Omar Alghabra.
That’s odd for a Conservative delegate…
Then there’s Urz Heer's LinkedIn page:
“Director, Brampton West Federal Liberal Riding Association November 2014 – Present”
In Google Images, the first photo shows her speaking in front of a big red Liberal banner.
I’ll show you more. A LOT more.
I don’t know how Urz Heer scammed her way into the convention. But I do know how she scammed her way into the CBC, and Globe and Mail and National Post and literally 177 news stories. Because the media are stupid, lazy and partisan...
NEXT: At the convention, I sat down with Andrew Scheer, Conservative MP from Regina and former Speaker of the House. What does he think about #Elbowgate. Given his unique perspective, Scheer's comments are fascinating.
PS: The Liberals think the scandal is a joke — I’ll show you a photo from the Grits’ convention that proves it.
THEN: Our Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid updates us on the situation with suspended Wildrose MLA Derek Fildebrandt, and our SaveDerek.ca campaign.
FINALLY: Thanks for your positive feedback about our coverage of the Conservative Party convention. I got a lot of messages about my lengthy interview with Kevin O'Leary, asking me if I think he'll run for the CPC leadership.
WATCH my show tonight for my answer!
