"Can you imagine if Maclean’s was your only source of news?": Scott Gilmore's "weird" San Bernardino column "whitewashes Muslim terrorism"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander
 

So it’s been almost a week since the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California that killed 14 people and injured 21. And I was curious: how would Maclean’s magazine cover it?

Would they put a picture of the terrorists on their front page, smiling, like they did for the convicted Al Qaida terrorist, Omar Khadr, on their Remembrance Day edition?

They did something weirder.

They had Scott Gilmore write a column about it, with this incredible headline. Ready: "How Obama missed his chance to break a ritual around mass killings”, and the subheadline, "People in the United States accept firearms and gunplay as essential, albeit occasionally regrettable, elements of what it means to be American.”

It doesn't mention that the shooting was a terrorist act or that the killers were Muslims who supported ISIS.

Can you imagine if Maclean’s was your only source of news?

I’m not quite sure why they publish him Scott Gilmore. He is married to Catherine McKenna, the hard-left-wing Liberal environment minister.

Does this weird view — whitewashing Muslim terrorism, calling for gun control — represent Gilmore’s views, or McKenna’s, or Maclean’s?

Trudeau’s Liberals MUST halt plans to bring in thousands of Syrian refugees
until they can guarantee the safety of the Canadian people.

Stuff like this is starting to freak me out. You feel like you’re living in the twilight zone. Unless of course your sensibilities have been completely broken down and you can no longer see the the truth when it’s all around you. What human being with a soul or conscience could craft this article? And furthermore, what editor would rubber stamp it?

I guess it was as if Fred & Wilma went on the killing spree!

Sorry Bill Collins be very worried, if you visit the dentist every 6 months and get a new addition of Macleans age is not relevant you are just poisoned less often

It’s no surprise Gilmore wrote a fluff piece such as this. His wife was off in Paris, leaving him ample time to raid the liquor cabinet. If he had finished it earlier he would have found a way to incorporate climate change into the article. Don’t worry Ezra, nobody reads Maclean’s unless it’s a 6 month old copy sitting in a doctor’s office

I kept reading Macleans years back when it had a more moderate editor and had Mark Steyn on its back page. Without Steyn there I have no reason to keep reading.

“You just can’t trust the mainstream media.”
And you can’t tell me the media aren’t in bed with the government – literally…
MacLeans – what a joke…

You know i could swear they had I.E.D.’s and pipe bombs as well, those are highly illegal , yet the left never mentions those for some reason?

The only good thing about radical Islamists taking over our country will be seeing the apologists get their REWARD.
commented 2015-12-08 02:21:04 -0500
A better question to ask, is if we can imagine if the rebel was our only source of news.

Parrot cage liner. This is the most time I have spent reading Maclean’s articles. I will never get that time back.

Have said this before, but if I were a father to a couple of young kids, I think that I would rather have them tell me and their mother at the dinner table about what they read in Playboy or Penthouse or Hustler as opposed to what they read in Macleans.

Ezra, love your shows, I watch them all the time but there is one thing I have to say. I wish you would stop using the term “radical” Islam….as if there was a moderate version of Islam….Islam is Islam and anyone who reads the Quran knows there is nothing moderate about it. It is a religion of submission and killing infidels…not sure how that can be distinguished from the moderate version??

Macleans? Never heard of them…

Deranged leftist! Husband and wife killers; like Bonnie & Clyde?
commented 2015-12-07 18:40:28 -0500
Macleans is good for one thing only and that is hanging in a 1920s Outhouse. Not for reading either.
This Terrorist is a good example of what an inbred Muslim looks like. Take note of his eyes, these people really are half crazed and in need of help. A permanent Straitjacket would be a good idea.

What do you expect from media that takes government handouts.

“Ezra, you made a mistake. You said they purchased the bullets illegally, but the printed quote said “legally”, so either the printed quote was wrong or you when you read it.”

Wow Pete, you got him. Ezra’s cred is down the tubes for sure.
Actually whatever little mistake it was that Ezra made the guns were purchased illegally, they were illegally modified, they were used in an illegal act in an illegal manner with an illegal motive in mind. So whats your picayune point?
commented 2015-12-07 18:15:33 -0500
I reckon with the Liberal push for “refugees” one cannot be too careful covering up the Islamic truth. Be aware we are in for a new gun control regime soon in Canada, it is my guess it will make the old gun registry look like a walk in the park.

Gordon Sinclair must be turning over in his grave……

And wasn’t it the Editors of MacLeans who recently branded Winnipeg as the racist capitol of Canada, with no evidence. It’s a shame the Politicians there were too gutless to challenge that slander.
commented 2015-12-07 17:53:19 -0500
I would never consider anything MacLean’s prints as being anything but lies. I can’t believe anyone buys that rag anymore.
commented 2015-12-07 17:53:13 -0500
Tawdry journalism…that’s why I cancelled my subscription a year ago…the tragedy is that there are Canadians who depend on Macleans for their news…
commented 2015-12-07 17:53:02 -0500
I think it is good to get news from many sources even if it makes you want to hurl at times, So much more in a liberal dominated media do we need to get your message to an audience who deserves to hear the other side.
commented 2015-12-07 17:48:35 -0500
Macleans is like CTV news commercial from Lisa LaFlamme Quote " We filter out the noise"
commented 2015-12-07 17:41:16 -0500
It needs to be remembered that McKenna got a political career because of her marriage to Scott Gilmore. In any case, this is what Canadian media is and it will only get worse. Fortunately, in the US the home of such illogic is MSNBC and everyone knows that network is a crackpot organization, run by a dozen loonies and one lesbian.

Ezra, you made a mistake. You said they purchased the bullets illegally, but the printed quote said “legally”, so either the printed quote was wrong or you when you read it.
