CBC “journalist” tattles on pro-refugee social worker who questioned face veils

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I discussed a CBC story that wasn’t really a news story, but more of a mini political campaign serving the interests of Trudeau and the Liberal government, and serving as an infomercial for “World Hijab Day,” the Islamist celebration of the subjugation of women.

Frank Bauer is a refugee loving social worker who runs an organization called CARE, Central Alberta Refugee Effort, that helps refugees integrate into society, but he wrote something on Facebook in 2017 while engaging with others in a respectful, polite conversation about integration.

He gently probed the question of where the line is between being welcoming and reasonably expecting newcomers to adapt and conform to their new country, and dared to suggest that Muslim women wearing the full face covering in public, is a notch too far.

According to CBC's own report, not a single person complained about this 2017 Facebook post, so the CBC did — in 2019, on World Hijab Day, in a 1,000-word story claiming Frank Bauer “is under fire.”

Watch as I explain why this isn’t journalism, but activism by the state broadcaster on behalf of the Trudeau Liberal government.

FYI the CBC also (allegedly) receives funding from AlJazera. That wouldn’t be much of a surprise.surprise.

I greatly appreciate the Rebel sharing stories that the left wing media goes out of its way to ignore, avoid and spin. Unless we understand the problem then there is no way to fix it. There is a saying in the military, “know your enemy” and today, islam IS our enemy. It’s not enough to just read a few stories about what muslims want or how the media portrays them. We need to get to the root of islams ideology and then we have the knowledge to deal with it. I would like to share a link with you so you can start collecting that knowledge and then use it effectively for your own sake and safety.


Don’t let the word “bible” scare you off. This site was created by former muslims who want non muslims to understand the truth about islam. Islam is about lying, deception and death. To fight your enemy you must first understand your enemy and this will help you with that. Please invest some time and take a look and see for yourself what this religion of “peace” really wants to do to you, your family and your nation. If you don’t step up and act then who will?

Lets face it if CBC was not funded by taxpayers even Hockey Night in Canada and Coronation Street could not even save it. The only thing worse than its programing is its bloated overpaid diversity hired employees. The last thing they should be doing is playing politics. Oh ya they are Canada’s Pravda but the PMO is definitely not Canada’s Putin. Burkas are a sign of submission. Why do our MSM and Politicians have blinders on about this. Anywhere else in Canada a homophobic slur is heard, the offending party outed and then subjected to SJW outrage and ruin. Others shout and throw these LBGT offenders from the roof tops and all we hear from ruling masses is crickets

So I assume that all female presenters on the CBC will be wearing burkhas for the next week on air?

These garments are a disgrace and an insult to every woman living in a free society. They are nothing more than mobile prisons. Didn’t Canada just accept a teen on the run from Saudi Arabia for being forced into this kind of crap?

Henry said, " Harper had the opportunity to privatize the cbc and didn’t do it. Now Canadians and our democracy are paying the price for his political weakness!"

Yes, of course. We all know it is all Harper’s fault! The PM we have now is infinitely better than Harper, that is for sure!

He is absolutely correct. Wearing a full head gear will not assist them with integration. A Hijab is one thing; a burka is quite another. The idiocy of the CBC shouldn’t surprise anyone.

No offense to that Frank guy but CARE has gone so far down the drain that the english teachers don’t even speak decent english anymore.

It must be getting confusing working there. Half of the employees at our Canadian broadcaster are Muslim, and the other half are brain addled blue haired sjw’s. I assume there is a lot of appeasement going on in the office politics and I don’t think its the Muslims doing the appeasing. Political Islam seems to be seeping into every crevice of our institutions and our society, even acting as in-house mutaween. The now Muslim broadcaster has begun to go so far as to hunt down social media accounts of non Muslim employee’s for old comments which may be too western for them. This attempt to get ‘infidels’ fired by demanding that everyone at the cbc now be sharia compliant, is not exactly something we should be allowing to happen without repercussions. Not in western country on the National broadcaster we pay for. Once the sitting dictators are unseated, a lot will change for the cbc. It was never meant to be used against us this way.

Glenn, I like your idea for the scum at the cbc.

It is too horrific and disgusting for me to follow through on what I was going to do on this posting space, which was to post links to pictures of women who suffered acid attacks and attempts to slit their throats for choosing to no longer wear hijab….go look it up yourselves….

How ironic that the Trudeau government made hay over giving a saudi teen asylum for refusing to wear one….you would think that all the political correctors could agree on some sort of standard instead of what suits the day’s news cycle.

Something that really should be done between now and the election…or even rhetroactively for that matter…is that every CBC “journalist” who abused their position to break the rice bowl of people who committed trivial offence to the politically correct, be shit listed and ceremoniously publicly fired for doing so on the tax payer dime….when the PPC defunds and dismantles the CBC.
