On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, guest-host David Menzies reported on organizers from Canadian-Muslim Vote banning him from Justin Trudeau's Eid Mubarak dinner in Toronto.
David was hoping to file a firsthand report of Justin's jolly jihadi of joy, but The Rebel Media was frog-marched out of the event which had been advertised as open to the media.
Other media were allowed to stay back, of course. And their accounts have been thrilling. Justin was in rock star mode for the friendly venue. There was no chatter about SNC-Lavalin, or Jody Wilson-Raybould. This was a celebration of all things Islamic and a not-so-subtle denunciation of the Conservative Party of Canada.
According to the press release for the event,
“Notes for Media: The Prime Minister’s remarks to the Eid Dinner are open to media coverage as per the official itinerary for the date. Special accommodations have been made for media who are covering the event.”
But for us, there were some extra-special non-accommodations thanks to Grayson Bass of the Canadian-Muslim Vote organization.
Indeed, in what is becoming an increasingly frequent occurrence, the Rebel showing up to cover an event where Liberals are in attendance is welcomed about as much as the proverbial skunk to the garden party.
The Canadian-Muslim Vote purports to be non-partisan, but don't bet your burqa on that one.
