Why did media leave THIS out of disruptive WestJet passenger stories?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

An unidentified man caused a disturbance on a WestJet flight from Toronto to Edmonton early Wednesday.

According to several eyewitness accounts, the man wore a backpack for the duration of the flight, spent three hours praying, called people on the plane unbelievers and asked them to kill him as he wandered back and forth in the aisle.

The man was eventually restrained by passengers and held at the back of the plane after the frightened flight crew asked for help controlling him before the plane landed in Edmonton.

The media is reporting the motive for the man’s behaviour is unclear. Really?

It’s been over 24 hours and we haven’t heard the name of this martyrdom seeking, backpack-wearing, praying man. None of the articles published in the Star, CBC, CTV and Global News identified the man by name or gave a physical description beyond “large” and 20 years old. Why don’t we know about his complexion? His face? His hair?

The types of prayer or the language he was reciting them in (for three full hours) haven’t been published in any news articles yet. Why not? We know if it had been the Rosary, the media would be camped out on the Archbishop’s doorstep.

WestJet passenger, Steven Kelly who helped restrain the otherwise unidentified large 20 year old, accidentally blew up the media’s “unknown motive narrative” in an interview with CTV News when he said someone heard the man say “Allah” a few times.

This singular and pivotal fact has not made it into any of the published news accounts. Is the motive still unclear? Was it ever?

I predict WestJet will suffer great economic loss over this. If they don’t want to be truthful with the people. Then let them suffer.

Eileen MCrae, well said but the problem is, first, Trudeau is making changes to our Charter to reflect his agenda and secondly, he worships the U.N. and the U.N. is now run by the Islamic countries as their leaders all sit at the head of the table. Islam rules Canada now as well. Trudeau somehow has the impression he OWNS CANADA AND WE CANADIANS and can do as he pleases and we will have to accept it. He is GOD over us now and we allow it!

Ah yes, Media Party confirmation bias at work again, treasonously acting against Canadian’s interest…
Unlike Justin, I do not have any ‘admiration for China’s basic dictatorship’, but I do have some admiration for these Tianjin Airlines, Chinese passengers:

Those Westjet flight crew and passengers should have chucked that Islamic terrorist out of that jet at 30,000 feet…

Eilleen MCrae: I agree and as I have mentioned before I don’t think the majority of cops want to be part of any cover up. They must be under allot of pressure from above to keep a tight lip on the many stories we are hearing about. I say to them just consider the fall out that came from those who hid the molestation problem within the Catholic church which didn’t come for decades but it did come and no guarantee your government will be around decades later to have your back. I also think anonymous has a point. No doubt there will be real cases of mental illness which is all the more reason for the powers that be to be open and honest. The atmosphere of concealment only breeds suspicion whether founded or not.

Suppression of the truth in a free and democratic society is unconscionable! It is one of the first steps in the downward slippery slope to tyranny and totalitarianism. The mainstream media fail to comprehend that they are complicit in the process that is muzzling freedom of speech.

“The United Nations’ 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference, and impart information and ideas through any media regardless of frontiers” Our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees this as well. Yet, the mainstream media continue to shirk their duty to truthfully inform their readers of the basic facts!

Canada is under attack from within its own borders! We are experiencing what I refer to as Canadian Cultural Genocide!

Andrew name me one time the media reported on a pedophile priest without mentioning the religion. If not, then why was it important to the story?
commented 2016-09-02 03:24:59 -0400
Andrew Stephenson they sure deem it important if a Muslim is called a name. Or does it only happen to them?
commented 2016-09-02 03:06:46 -0400
This guy actually sounds legitimately insane, as opposed to being a terrorist.

It turns out, Muslims can actually have a mental illness without being a terrorist at the same time. Too bad he had an episode on a plane.

Andrew Stephenson wrote, “they left it out because it’s irrelevant to the story”. …. I’m curious as to which of the 5Ws that are basic to journalism were OK to leave out?… Are you a journalist; a journalism school student; a journalism school graduate; a working reporter, or, are you just farting in the wind again?…

Jan G – Ya, I got that label too after standing up to Eggen and SD76. The problem they are having now, is that I don’t give a crap about being called names, because I’m not a baby. They will find that when you try to come between parents and their kids, their are a lot of ‘sh*t disturbers’ that don’t care about the social ladder. The same goes for ‘Islamophobs’. The insult has no teeth to people who don’t care about being labeled an imaginary insult.

I’m betting Andrew isn’t a Homicide Investigator or anything like that, because he would not be able to put one and one together and come up with two and arrive at a conclusion pointing to a suspect. Because all clues are of equal importance when investigating any crime, each clue paints a picture as to what happened and why, it’s the necessary collection of evidence. Obviously Andrew doesn’t watch CSI either, probably too busy watching the Bachelor.

Liza Rosie:
I initiated an exercise in my Church to voice our opinion/position on the Euthanasia/Assisted Suicide legislation, and though it was overwhelmingly received, I was referred to as a ‘sh..t disturber’.
That is what happens when everyone is afraid to speak the truth. Sad, isn’t it?
commented 2016-09-01 23:11:54 -0400
CTV Edmonton aired the story.
I guess this story wasn’t important enough for the rest of Canada.
commented 2016-09-01 22:47:37 -0400
Liza Rosie: it reminds me of cults where everyone is afraid to say the truth and yet many are aware of what is going on. I have said it before. Those complicit in covering up crimes don’t need to look to far back to see what the fallout can be when someone finally breaks the code and the whole thing comes crashing down around them.
commented 2016-09-01 22:37:33 -0400
The fella who helped restrain him was pretty careful with his words, everyone is so afraid to tell the truth. Yes, he said the guy said Allah at least twice, but then said “I’m not saying that had anything to do with it or what have you”. Everyone is so afraid of saying what everyone is thinking. Can’t wait to hear what was in the backpack, lots of questions that’s for sure.
These days I wouldn’t want to fly unless their was an air marshal on board, but you’ll never know if their is or not.
Apparently we have them, even for domestic flights, but there didn’t seem to be one on this plane.

Andrew Stephenson: Not everyone agrees with your description of what is relevant and everyone should be concerned when group think tries to silence or shame others into staying quiet about very real and potentially dangerous problems. I doubt most journalists got into the business so they could participate in the cover up of important crime details. In the legal profession they refer to it as concealing evidence and it is never for good motivation and only to the detriment of those are the victims.

Makes sense that WestJet isn’t talking
Not good for business when you have an airline let a Muzzie wearing a back pack pray to Alla for THREE HOURS ? on the plane and they didn’t do anything ?
Of course MSM will candy coat this ,poor boy probably had a fear of flying.

Andrew Stephenson wrote «They “left it out” because it’s irrelevant to the story.»

Yet strangely, if the perpetrator wasn’t a Muslim, that fact would suddenly be “relevant” and plastered all over the Media Party’s headlines.
commented 2016-09-01 21:39:54 -0400
«The media is reporting the motive for the man’s behaviour is unclear.»

Must be more of that contagious “mental illness” that the Media Party keeps equating with Islam to their audience.
commented 2016-09-01 21:14:07 -0400
Andrew…If enough associations between Islam and terror are made…you would be at the head of the class of fools for denying those associations.
commented 2016-09-01 20:55:04 -0400
They “left it out” because it’s irrelevant to the story. The Rebel gets so worked up about the “muslim” dog whistle that they miss certain critical other parts of the story, which are far more important.

I believe that’s a federal offense. See no evil,media. I even boycott “Heinz” products because John Kerry owns it.

Once again by telling us nothing the MSM has told thinking people everything.

The media is bought and paid for

As soon as things are hidden it means an evil islamic

Nothing on CTV website, except a gecko was found alive. Really important news item there.
Canada has always been known to have the safest airspace. Not anymore.

If you are under 50 you may see it on C.B.B.befor you die.

There will be a look of utter shock on the faces of the “politically correct” media when one of their network stations is blown up by an Islamic terrorist killing many of them.

Though the loss of life would be tragic, it might just shock them into reporting the truth. Would they still spin that attack as a “lone wolf crazy”?
commented 2016-09-01 19:06:01 -0400
The witness who mentioned the business about “Allah” will have to be identified….doxed….and called on the carpet at human resources and made to attend sensitivity training …recant…and become the poster boy of politically corrected contrition…..just like anybody else who violates the tenents of Channel 5 No Witness News….:-)
commented 2016-09-01 18:59:37 -0400
Not sure how this loon got away with wearing a backpack for three hours, the crew is usually all over you to stow that. I talked about this with a friend who is a West Jet flight attendant, we were both shaking our heads. This could turn out to be some of the worst publicity in the company’s history.
commented 2016-09-01 18:53:22 -0400
I stopped flying because of the BS you have to put up with at airports – I used to make 3 to 6 flights a year but now I drive or take the train and relax – lost revenue there westjet that isn’t coming back until things change.
