WATCH CBC “think-alikes” mock Brexit voters with fact-free insults

Rebel Staff
 

On last night's show, I reviewed the major Canadian media's reaction to the Brexit vote and saw lots of snobbery but not as much factual analysis.

But would any of these Toronto media snobs agree to live under an arrangement with the US like the one the UK lived under with Europe?

Would they really go along with having Canadian foreign and domestic policy dictated by a "parliament" in Texas or Mississippi...?

The borders are open, if it is so much better inside the EU. Why are they still here?

Jay you are correct that that is what is being said, which causes me concern that young voters are so willing to toss patriotism for “lets all hold hands globalism”.

“My take is that younger and more educated voters (those with university degrees, for example) were far more likely to vote to remain in the European Union.
Older and more rural voters were more likely to vote to exit the Union.
That is the conventional wisdom, correct me if I am wrong.”

In theory, and when polls were conducted, it was as you stated Jay, however on voting day reality proved otherwise:

“Swaths of young people in this country have been lamenting at the fact that our futures have been “ruined” by selfish older voters who probably won’t live to see the full extent of the damage they have caused.
Yet, it has been estimated that only 36 per cent of people in the 18 – 24 year old category voted in the EU referendum. 64 per cent of young people did not bother to take themselves down to the polling station and cast their ballot.”

‘Educated’ and ‘Uneducated’ are broad terms which (hopefully) do not have any value judgement.

A value judgement would say that one is better than the other.

Traditionally someone who knew the alphabet and was able to work with it was called “literate” — they knew their letters. They were educated.

Today, a person who has graduated high school is generally considered ‘educated’.

People who read and follow The Rebel are often accused of being ‘ignorant’ or ‘illiterate’ or uneducated’, even though none of these terms really apply.

Rebel readers should be able to read and consider the articles that are presented. Having read them, we can give our opinions an any article.

Jay Kelly who says they are the most watched? LMAO! Sorry but being forced onto cable does not mean people are watching.
commented 2016-06-29 02:18:24 -0400
Jay what makes them more educated? Because they were brainwashed? A University degree means you have esoteric knowledge , it does not make you smarter than someone who does not have one. Why is it so called educated people do the stupidest things and deny reality so much?

Mike, I suppose that you are reacting to my comment: “the sad fact remains that the young and well-educated voted to remain part of the European Union, while the older and less educated voted to withdraw.”

True, I take the information from the mainstream European media (and my friends who are in Europe at the moment.)

My take is that younger and more educated voters (those with university degrees, for example) were far more likely to vote to remain in the European Union.

Older and more rural voters were more likely to vote to exit the Union.

That is the conventional wisdom, correct me if I am wrong.

Vajay jay…..what an arrogant prick you are. And you know the age and education of all the voters how? Riiggghhhttt…….just regurgitating the mindless rhetoric of the leftist regressive fucktard media. Idiot!

Nafta has destroyed the Canadian/US economy, that was Mulrooneys parting gift to Canadians, sending good paying jobs else where, leaving us low paying service jobs instead, which robots will be filling in the next 10 yrs. Just watch (I Robot). If you haven’t noticed, Canada is in lockstep with US policy, getting us ready for the North American Union, but first they have to bring us down to 3rd world living conditions before they dissolve the borders, hence the service jobs. Trudeau is putting this in place by eliminating Mexican passports when coming into Canada., which they discussed at the recent (3 Amigos )meeting. We will not have anyway of vetting these people as they come across the border , like the US, our southern border will be wide open to Mexico and we will be blindsided by what comes thru. Trudeau is more concerned about his election promises to people who do not vote in Canada and cannot until they are Nationalists, does this make sense to any of you?. If any one hasn’t read George Orwells 1984, do yourself a favor and read it because we are there!.

Ouch! Dave Houston and others should know that the CBC is watched for hockey, for news, and for opinion.

The CBC is the most watched network for political opinion.

No one watches the cbc so their opinion doesn’t matter

I suppose the sad fact remains that the young and well-educated voted to remain part of the European Union, while the older and less educated voted to withdraw.

Yesterday they were commenting on CBC that most of the stay voters in Britain were young and University educated while the leave voters were older uneducated blue color workers therefore implying that the leave voters weren’t smart enough to know what they were voting for. What a bunch of elitist snobs.
commented 2016-06-28 23:03:01 -0400
Fair question. The 28 members of the European Union have been reduced to 27. How would Canada fare if the number in NAFTA was reduced from three to two?
commented 2016-06-28 22:04:33 -0400
I’m sure they would embrace the second amendment in a Unified American zone. Just like they would the first amendment, not. Useful idiots that they are, or not so useful, time to

CBC is funny. Best comedy act going.

Nigel, PLEASE invest in a bullet proof vest. These lefties are not going to let this slide without making an example of you.

All this fuss about the CBC could be just a storm in a teacup. Just how many viewers actually watch the National with Peter (the grossly trumped up airport announcer) Mansbridge? Maybe just a handful… so what is the worry. As an aside it would be interesting to divide the funding the CBC gets from the government by the number of viewers after taking out the Radio Canada funding/viewers so that a pure English viewers per dollar of funding. Sure they make a lot of noise but who is actually listening.

Paul Maurice, well said.

The CBC is a moral and intellectual eunuch. Castrated by the irrational mendacity of multiculturalism and neo-Marxism, its minions cannot drink enough of the Kool Aid to slake their thirst for politically correct ideologies that fly in the face of Western civilization and culture.

For the stilted snobs who think the Brexit voter was incapable of knowing the “complexity” of the ballot issues, I would say that this occurs on every democratic vote – how about the Quebec referendum, were they “to uninformed” of the complexities? How about the last general election were Canadians to uninformed of the complexities ?

Heh, I guess when the vote goes their way people were making
commented 2016-06-28 15:24:58 -0400
The singularity of opinion on the CBC is a symptom of the organizational mindset – that being that elitist sophistry will rule over objectivity and opposing viewpoint – in other words these pseudo-intellects , at some level, realize their narrative is so fragile it will never stand up to objective scrutiny and certainly never withstand factual counter-argument.

The left elite have fragile egos and cannot stand the trauma of being questioned or argued with – that is why they have to denigrate any counter argument as anti-intellectual and beneath their response – when in fact they are scared shitless to defend their weak narratives in a no holds barred factual showdown.

Huffington Post and other essentially questioned how “informed” Brexit voters were. What condescending snobs.
commented 2016-06-28 15:00:26 -0400
Isn’t it strange that two seemingly contradictory qualities, such as hubris and profound stupidity, permeate MSM, and in fact seem to be a prerequisite for the job? On the other hand, it seems to work for them. After all, they have well paying secure jobs….. jobs they wouldn’t have if they were concerned with truth and common sense. So maybe they’re not that stupid after all. (but the hubris still stands)

found another way cbc censors canadians… as i flagged the racist comments of 1 poster .. i was barred for 24 hours, lol my life ended, for flagging comments that had been seen to be ok by the multinational company that cbc uses for opinion shaping which panders to a very small flock of borderline imbeciles. apparently i was expressing my “opinion”
commented 2016-06-28 13:15:13 -0400
im surprised that ezra missed the anti semtic bias the cbc used during the election.. of course esther enkin apparently alsdo missed.it…

Ezra – Rebel gets about 10k-20k views on youtube on Brexit subject.

CBC gets about 5k views on youtube.

Ripping CBC is easy. Ripping CBC as a failed organization that no one follows should be front an center.

In effect, the CBC is a spammer for the liberal party – the CBC eats spam sandwiches for lunch.

I think your commentaries should be more direct – CBC is a failed organization and no matter how many billions are thrown at this mess, it will never improve.
commented 2016-06-28 11:00:14 -0400
I guess they could start the viewing day and every news broadcast with the disclaimer “the opinion expressed in the following program reflect those of the cbc and do not necessarily represent those of most Canadians”
commented 2016-06-28 10:46:07 -0400
And, hence the unintelligent regressives of the MSM lay the ground work to support the denial of a referendum on electoral reform in Canada. The unwashed electorate may not decide what our betters want, because we are xenophobic against the Laurentian elites and the liberally corrupt party those elites support.
