The CBC goes to war against Rex Murphy, its only conservative journalist

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

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...

NEXT: Marc Morano of joins me to talk about the latest volley in the "climate change" war, as researchers have been forced to "walk back" a report on the oceans heating up, after a mathematician found flaws in their study.

While I find Rex Murphy enlightening and entertaining, his fading from the limelight shows his weakness. He’s silently moving into the shadows. Why? Is his contract so tight that he can’t do Rebel Media w/o costly him mega-bucks?
He knows he would have full editorial control over his contributions to Rebel Media if he chose to do so. He chooses not to. Sad.

It reminds me of the excuse children use when hitting another child, “He made me do it!”
The Left and their Antifa storm troopers remind me of the guy who beats his wife and then says, See what you made me do?!"

Just browsing the Internet I saw an article on the massive increase on violence in the US and how the FBI does not know why.

The article went on to blame Trump, of course, in good leftist fashion instead of placing the blame on the people committing the crimes.

It reminds me of the excuse children use when hitting another child, “He made me do it!”

With the exception of a few adults on the left, they are mostly just immature children which just happen to be grown up physically.

Rex Murphy is an icon of sanity in the fake news press kingdom. I love his columns and thoroughly enjoyed his weekly viewpoints on CBC when they were a wee bit less the propaganda arm of the current regime. CBC’s National is a joke, 3-4 reporters seeking acclaim via their own prejudices and ideologies is beyond my ability to swallow, therefore I have never viewed the National since my first attempt on it’s Day One debut.
CBC has been busy during the Liberal regime’s grip on Canada to ban all Liberal regime critics from posting comments. I check comments from time to time and noted a “lefty” commenter was wondering where all the opposing “cons” were as “con” comments were very few to none at all. Their take on “cons” comment lack is that “cons” are in hiding because Trudeau is doing such an amazing job when in fact none of them have the brain capacity to consider that the CBC is actually banning conservative commenters from online posting on their less than astute articles. I speak from experience after being shut down twice for posting factual truth. I decided that giving them a hearty Trudeau Salmon Arm salute (in the privacy of my own home) was a just reward. I now consistently eye any CBC reporting as being highly similar to the reporting that President Trump decries.

Truth and facts have no place in a left leaning socialistic society, it’s a my way or the highway mentality. The MSM has failed science and humanity in not pushing the correction to the “warming oceans” eco-terror attack. This has to be based on where they get their money from…CBC is a prime example. MSM has an agenda to follow and it is not one of honest and factual reporting. I am grateful the Rebel is available to provide the truth and the facts. Thank you Ezra and the Rebel team!

BREAKING: Mop and Pail comes to stunning realization that only pipelines can close Canada’s oil price gap and that Canadians and government are losing out.
They still can’t find the courage to name our Dear Leader as the prime culprit, instead they state that “ultimate responsibility rests with Ottawa”.
Gosh, maybe they will finally discover that catastrophic man made global warming is a hoax? …….Nah!

Rex Murphy is the only CBC journalist who is a) not gay and who is b) literate.
Maybe a petition should be created petitioning this Rachel Grantham from participating in or being in proximity to any of these Yukon Geoscience Forum activities.

Rex Murphy has been one of the most articulate voices in Canadian journalism for decades now… And clearly not one to be bought, unlike most of the “journalists” at the CBC… It’s a good thing that he still sees “print space” in The National Post because there seem to be a decreasing venue for articulate and conservative opinion anywhere else… What happens to him is indeed going to be a case of “the miner’s canary” where Canadian journalism is headed in the coming months and years… As as a graduate of Ryerson Journalism ‘67, I am horrified by the blatant bias and self-censorship and group think that almost all “journalists” are willing to adhere to now, just to earn an income… No finer current example of that being the B.S. being spread willy-nilly about “global warming” – that in the face of current projections by NASA that we are indeed in for a spell of GLOBAL COOLING given the sun’s extreme “quiet phase without any sunspots”…
Hey Ontario! Enjoying the snow???…

The CBC is a DEW… A non-leathal sonic one with its eternal nagging & screeching.
Honestly, The Canadian people JUST-CAN’T-STAND-IT anymore and they discover new things to do with their valuable time.
Nobody is going to waste the brain energy over hysterical activists wanting filthy lifestyles for everybody around them UNLESS these activists actually get their way by physical force… But that would be entirely revolting.
The backlash against such adversaries is often so quick and the damage is so legislatively restricted, political catastrophe is often avoided by a statute mile by the hands of democracy itself.
Let’s stop the nonsense, shall we? Can we stop the restrictive knowledge which is the worst form of censorship known to man? Forced ignorance? Trust the voter more and risk the monsters in the mob because those heros that oppose them are worth waiting for.
Like Tommy Robbison and the rest.

Its too bad the damage is done the minute the warm mongers publishes the article and it is published by all the news agencies. The correction will never be seen by many and the rest still believe the original discredited article. Is this a tactic or just the result of a clumsy overfunded ideology?

I am increasingly more interested in Directed Energy Weapons. Given the number of fires with the intensity to melt steel, and, leave nearby trees unaffected is fascinating.

Haven’t seen Rex for a long time. I disagreed with his typical CBC stance on issues most of the time. The rest of the time what he had to comment on had no substance, conclusion or actual side. He may of woke up since I last saw him but he knew which side his bread was buttered on working for the CBC.
Great picture of Ghomeshi and Trudeau, truly two Feminist woman abusers, like two peas in a pod. One more violent than the other but both should be locked up.
The Suzuk out there in the forest. I wonder if he carries a Bic? In a related story, the RCMP have determined that at least 29 forest fires out west were caused by Arson.

Maybe I haven’t searched well enough, but I find it curious, and increasingly more disturbing, that for most, if not all the currently troublesome public and private news media organizations, we are never informed who the responsible leaders of these organizations are, so that these powerful individuals can’t remain obscure and hide from any accountability to the public (their customers and/or shareholders).

Unfortunately, the apparent biased and unprofessional behavior currently shown by so many of these Media Organizations is so easily blamed on individual Reporters and/or Media Personalities. The focus of criticism seems to be logically there.

But don’t these individual employees reflect their organization’s culture, ethics, personal employee behavior, and the professional values that are the responsibility of each Organization’s ultimate Leader to define, support, reinforce and ensure, through effective organizational leadership and management. Some would say that the unprofessionalism is caused and/or reinforced by the Senior Management Leadership, in each media organization.

Ezra, I was hoping that you would have had something to say about what is happening in the UK right now, especially after your adventures over there with Tommy Robinsn.

May’s Cabinet Ministers are resigning all over the place, Jason Rees-Mogg is instigating a vote of no confidence against her and she is in denial, stating that she will carry on with her EU deal as though nothing was happening.

After her meeting where she gave her, Televised version of what the Leave deal would look like, nobody could leave Downing St because of the mobs gathered there, at the gates to the Mall.
Bottles were being thrown and things were pretty bad.

In my opinion, the UK is just a few steps away from major riots on the streets, by Leavers who do not like May,s deal and it’s additional 40 or 50 years with the EU.

- So what we’re seeing is the CBC deciding that they won’t even pretend to be at all balanced anymore. So we have to pay them our tax money, rather we like it or not, so they can push far left propaganda. I believe that’s referred to as taxation without representation. Now they want an additional $400 million in taxpayer handouts to cover the loss in ad revenue …….. because nobody’s watching them. Pathetic.

- I’m currently reading Marc Morano’s “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change”. Suggested reading for those interested in the subject. This doomsday BS has been going on for a very long time (since the 1800’s at least). It’s the endless failed doomsday predictions that caused me to rethink my own views on the subject many years ago (I’m old enough to remember when it was global cooling).

Poor Rex. He stood up for a guy who took a brutal false smearing campaign from a litany of false accusers just to be a victim of another political smear job by his own employer.
However, we’re talkin’ about the King here. He’s survived the CBC since I was in diapers and frankly if they’re looking to corrupt him and discredit what he does, the attempt will backfire and blow a hole in the CBC’s ship. He’s close to retirement. He’s not taking the golden handshake I believe. More like he’ll give the Highland fling.
With regards to the climate. Why are all these basement dwellers obsessing about the great outdoors, scheming? You’ll never know the weather let alone the ocean if you never go outside. Never. They sound like very lonely people.

‘Anthropogenic climate change’ means climate change caused by humans. So why don’t the climate change weirdo’s bandy it around? Probably because no one would know what the bloody hell they were talking about, even they don’t know what they are talking about.

I have to admit that I found ‘Anthropogenic climate change’ in to days Top 10 column

I have always appreciated that the CBC and the National Post have respected Rex Murphy enough to go easy on the censor pencil, but I think we all knew it was all going to come to an end sooner or later.
I’m sure as long as Mr. Murphy has something to say, somebody will be willing to open up a microphone for him. At least I hope so.

“If scientists start to politicise themselves like journalists have, they will discredit the world of science”.
Start? They have been modifying data to retain their funding for more than a decade at least. Its already been made into a joke. Junk science is right!
Marc Morano is right, that ship has already sailed. This junk science is what policy is based on, and what Climate Barbie preaches. It is what its always been, a vehicle for societal control of the masses for the benefit of the elite.
I wonder if the parka clad crazies in Montreal were spurned on by the Halloween scare. Its a hoax guys, a hoax!

Who would have thought CBC would try take down Rex. Rex is a good friend of Mansbridge and both left CBC the same time. Does this mean Mansbridge is also vulnerable if he too does something wrong?

The left, whether it be the CBC or a University can go after and ruin almost anyone they want, however sometimes they come up against a Jordon Peterson or a Rex Murphy, opponents who the left will regret tangling with.

I’m glad Ezra has a sense of humour when he reports some of these stories, like the one on Rex Murphy. If we didn’t laugh, we’d cry about some of them.
