CBC hypes Alberta NDP "death threat" drama, but their real "fear" is losing control of the narrative

Lauren SouthernRebel Commentator
 

As the chorus of "Kill Trump and his supporters" still rings through the media air, the CBC has made sure to remind us not to forget the "real" narrative:

Women are victims, and men never face problems of online harassment or threats.

The CBC has breathlessly reported that NDP premier Rachel Notley, Alberta's favourite mistake, has been receiving mean messages over Bill 6. That's her anti-agriculture bill that would impose overbearing regulations on tens of thousands of Albertan farmers.

The CBC has called the messages “violent,” reported on how they “need to stop,” and even interviewed a professor who claimed “men in politics don’t have to think about, much less address,” online threats like the ones Notley has received.

They've even posted that video Ezra showed you this week, of Albertan Energy Minister Marg McCuaig-Boyd weeping in the legislature over social media comments directed towards herself and the Alberta NDP.

These posts are completely uncalled for, and I adamantly oppose any threats of violence. However, these threats have also been completely blown out of proportion by the media who are once again using it to push an anti-male and anti-right narrative.

It only takes one Google or Twitter search for “assassinate Stephen Harper” to find thousands of results:

 

Where was the CBC when these threats poured in towards our previous Prime Minister? Why weren't Conservative MPs breaking out in tears over cyber-bullying while in Parliament? The Harper slander campaign was far more “violent” than the comments directed towards Notley or McCuaig-Boyd, and no one seemed to care.

The mainstream media cares much more when this happens to women, especially left-wing women. This is the reason why the UN held a meeting directed towards the non-existent problem of “Cyber-Violence Against Women and Girls” and not cyber violence in general. This is also why the CBC published an article interviewing a Calgary professor who only wanted to discuss how online threats affect women.

Despite this, both this professor and the CBC know “a lot of the bombastic political rhetoric is kind of empty,” if not nearly always empty. Even Notley admits: “I’m told that none of what has occurred thus far with me is any way shape or form out of the ordinary.”

Notley's right, but the mainstream media and her fellow party members won’t miss this opportunity to paint the NDP as a victim. She didn’t bawl in the provincial legislature like McCuaig-Boyd, so the CBC characterized her modicum of restraint as “downplaying the threats made against her.”

Almost every politician has received empty threats. Most of the Twitter users I know have been threatened at some point. There is a huge difference between a threatening post on the Internet and real threats, however. It's very rare for an online threat to be anything more than pixels on a screen.

I assume this is why the RCMP haven't stated they are launching an investigation into Notley’s threats. They're similar to the outrage I received after I attended the Amber Rose Slut Walk, which included dozens of people wishing death upon me:

 

 

Was I afraid? Of course not. Pixels have never, and will never, constitute a threat on my life.

The CBC doesn’t care, though; they have people who they can put on pedestals and claim are victims of right-wing “violence”.

Who cares if conservative political figures, like Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter, have been receiving torrents of hate for decades and have never suffered a credible threat? Politicians receive these messages all the time, and they amount to nothing in virtually every instance.

For the CBC, the narrative comes first. Death threats are always wrong, but be aware that the story the CBC is peddling is highly exaggerated and completely out-of sync with reality.

We expect this from ultra feminist publications like Jezebel. We shouldn't have to expect it from our country's public broadcaster.

I would like to blast a big pus filled chunky snot rocket right in snotley"s mouth, the problem is she would probably like it. if that didn’t make anybody gag nothing will.

I think I am getting misquoted.

SAM YOUNG commented 9 hours ago – there’s truth to this. You lead the destruction of people’s lives and they will want you dead.

Notley and her followers are backing the masses into a a corner and it only takes one bullet.
commented 2015-12-21 02:56:30 -0500
You can always count on the left wing to find something to complain about, even if there is no truth to it.

Left wing violence and bitter hostility is holy donchaknow
commented 2015-12-19 21:20:06 -0500
Hi Lee. Agreed. And of course Steele wrote a letter this last week as well. Funny he still thinks the RCMP stealing those guns was right, and of course the letter that got my laugh this week, well, actually it was the editor’s comment at the end of it, was about them removing comments. Funny that no one has written them a letter stating the obvious, that Steele works/worked for them, and was sole responsible for the comments being shut down. After all, no matter how many times he was flagged, no matter how many rules he broke, no matter how outrageous and dangerous his comments, not one was ever removed by their apparently incapable moderator. They really do think the readers are stupid.

D Mary, I couldn’t agree more with your comment. Proud Auntie’s relentless tsunami of insipid drivel was undoubtedly a huge inspiration for the army of clueless trolls who forced “that other publication” to throw in the towel and close down the liveliest online comment board in Canada. That same newspaper printed my letter on Wednesday in which I referred to certain people as “cellar-dwelling Rumpelstiltskins.” Take a wild guess who I had in mind as I wrote that?
commented 2015-12-19 15:45:50 -0500
Ezra Left Ant aka Gordo Steele, was it not enough for you to ruin that other publications comments section, now you visit your flatus here? Perhaps you could also visit your flatus on the CBC. You fit right in there.

Dan Mancuso, do you even live in Alberta? Or just wish you did?

Lots of pretend Albertans on this site. Dan probably lives in BC where the average human would consider him a loony for his constant violent threats. This site is likely the only place he feels he fits in.

I don’t like what that person said! They shouldn’t exist anymore

commented 2015-12-19 04:16:10 -0500
Remember that time Dan Mancuso encouraged violence to censor an opinion he disagreed with? Typical entitled right winger. “If I don’t get my way I’m gunna hurt you”.

A good way to tell if you have a valid argument, is to see if it includes threats of violence.

Left Ant the right is not in charge, the economy is nosediving. Got an explanation for that? Or for the left wing cowards who made death threats against Harper and Klein? Oh yeah you are a pathetic loser hypocrite, you will blame everything the left does wrong on someone else for decades like a spoiled child. Now go bring some more wife beaters into our country , they are cowards but they sure have you under control LMAO. SHINY PONY

THEREBEL:
I would have liked to have read some comments on here but numb-nuts, f*g-boy, Extra Left Slant whatever it is, is vandalizing this site. If someone doesn’t off this useless POS, can THEREBEL do something about it? Please?
It’s not like this degenerate loser ever has anything valid, meaningful or legitimate to say…Most trolls I don’t read, but I can just scroll past, but Estrogen-Pisant – being the diseased a** hole it is, is consciously taking up and wasting valuable space on this important site, just like he’s wasting good air and taking up good space and is himself just a waste of skin.
Take a hint moron and f**k-off!
If it’s a problem to censor this sh*t-for-brains – I’m a fan of Voltaire too – , let’s be democratic and have a vote…I vote to throw this mook back into the cesspit it crawled out of – he’s stinkin’ up the place!

To the leftarded pissant: do you really feel so threatened by right wing common sense and logic that you attempt to own this whole thread? Trying to stifle truth and free speech? You are among the most pitiable of losers.

Ezra Left Ant you sir are a NDP socialist coward
commented 2015-12-18 15:05:42 -0500
Maybe Ezra Left Ant would show some courage and post under his real name, Gordo Steele.
Not likely as he is too much of a coward.

We’ve seen this many times before, the right drives the economy into the ground, rich white men lose some money, and then need someone to blame. It makes them feel bigger and stronger to threaten to kill someone on the internet.

Perhaps if less people in this province weren’t so awful with managing their own personal finances they wouldn’t be running to the government crying for help.

How does one get an answer from Ezra? I keep asking he doesn’t reply
commented 2015-12-18 14:04:49 -0500
This fake news page is littered with threats of violence. It’s typical of the right, when the government stop wiping their ass for

them they start threatening violence with their guns. At least we are seeing an increase in mental health spending, perhaps

the crazy WRPs can start getting the right meds to calm their angry outbreaks.
