Have you ever seen the CBC criticize the environmental extremist, David Suzuki? No, you have not.
Not because he is one of their few recognizable personalities; not because they’re afraid of him in some way. But because they agree with him.
There have been many David Suzuki controversies, and they are all treated treated the same way — ignored at best, but usually supported. Because it’s the CBC.
Same thing with that unfunny CBC comedian, Mary Walsh.
And don’t get me started on Jian Ghomeshi...
I tell you all this because I want to show you their pitiful little attack on the sole conservative at the CBC, namely Rex Murphy.
Rex isn’t really allowed on the CBC much anymore these days; they barely tolerated him before; but under Justin Trudeau, the CBC has all but fired him.
Rex is moderate; he is nuanced. I’m not saying he never calls people names, but his vocabulary is a bit bigger than Mary Walsh’s. I think most Canadians love him.
But check out the lameness here, in a CBC story:
Petition aims to have Rex Murphy uninvited from Yukon Geoscience Forum Murphy wrote column last month questioning the credibility of Christine Blasey Ford
In case you’ve forgotten, Christine Blasey Ford was the woman who made vague, constantly-changing allegations against Donald Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh.
The FBI investigated all of the claims and found them baseless, so the Senate voted to approve Kavanaugh, including some Democrats. Not surprisingly, several of the accusers later recanted, saying they just did it for attention and political points. In fact, the Senate has referred some of the accusers to the FBI, for possible perjury charges.
Rex Murphy wrote a couple of columns about it for the National Post.
The most obvious creeps in the Kavanaugh circus are the journalists
And then a few weeks later, he did a follow-up.
Why the Kavanaugh case still troubles me, even if no one else cares
Let me read a line or two from this one:
If the charges were empty or false or purely politically malicious, should there not be new charges against those who insolently inserted themselves into the process? Why no penalties for false or malicious interference?
That's a good point. Doesn’t that prove that Democrats were really only just using her — they never believed it either? If you believed someone was brutalized, you don’t stop caring when the TV cameras leave.
But my point today is that some government bureaucrat in the Yukon thinks that by asking those questions, Rex Murphy should be banned from speaking at an event in her territory.
And the CBC has decided to help her campaign. This story has been published twice on the CBC — it’s so important, they’ve actually updated it. They want you kept up to speed on the latest:
Petition aims to have Rex Murphy uninvited from Yukon Geoscience Forum; Murphy wrote column last month questioning the credibility of Christine Blasey Ford
A concerned Yukoner has started a petition to have Rex Murphy uninvited from the Yukon Geoscience Forum. Rachel Grantham does not want Murphy giving a keynote address on Nov.17, in light of a recent column he wrote.
The petition was posted on Nov. 5 and has collected 60 signatures as of Tuesday morning.
In the first place, The Rebel Media has had petitions too — ones about the open borders crisis that have had 50,000 plus signatures. We did one about the military that got 190,000 signatures.
But secondly: I just Googled Rachel Grantham. It took me a few seconds.
And Rachel Grantham isn’t just some "concerned Yukoner." She’s a political activist, as I'll show you tonight.
I'm not saying there’s anything wrong with that. But to pretend she’s just some random person, when she’s a paid, professional leftist activist, working for the government of the Yukon, as the union local president for a militant union — that’s the CBC lying.
Oh, and by the way, even after two pushes of this lame, lying, deceiving story, the petition in question? As I write this, it has less than 200 signatures. That’s just embarrassing.
Rex Murphy is probably the most loved thing at the CBC, because he’s so candid and thoughtful, and because he stands up for free speech and debate. He’d never call for someone to be banned.
But Rex Murphy doesn’t represent the CBC’s culture. Jian Ghomeshi does...
