CBC runs “over-the-top diatribe” against PPC candidate Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson

David MenziesMission Specialist

The CBC’s headline on a story about the People’s Party of Canada candidate in a Vancouver area by-election read: “Bernier's party taps anti-'trans agenda' activist as candidate in Burnaby-South” and the article goes on to vilify Laura-Lynn Tyler Thomson in every way possible.


CBC notes she previously worked as a host at The 700 Club Canada, but left it in 2017. She blamed her departure on LGBTQ-etc.-etc.-etc. activists who allegedly “targeted me mercilessly by calling The 700 Club Canada.”

It should be pointed out that CBC is usually anti-bully in its news coverage, except of course when the bullying is being done by someone who identifies as a non-binary, gender-fluid, asexual spirit unicorn, and the victim is a normal heterosexual woman.

If Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson’s name rings a bell, it’s probably because she was the woman who had what appeared to be coffee thrown on her by a woman in a hijab as she expressed her outrage outside a Vancouver courthouse over the murder of 13 year old Marissa Shen allegedly by one of Trudeau’s Syrian refugees.

The media was there and witnessed the assault but there was no coverage of the incident on the news. Why?

Under the warped lens of the CBC, Muslim violence against Thompson is a complete non-story, but Thompson choosing to run for the PPC has the CBC running an over-the-top diatribe against her.

I wonder if that has anything to do with PPC leader Maxime Bernier’s platform position on curtailing the CBC’s snout from further chowing down on billions of taxpayer dollars?

@Glenn Craig: Could you reword your comment such that we can all benefit from the details of the event you seem to describe? If possible, please give details: dates, places, names. I say “if possible” because it might include sensitive information.

I, for one, would like to know what happened.

Thanks

I’d argue that your screening needs to be a bit better. Not sure what the point is, besides a vague assumption that all Muslims are waving AK47s around? (an assumption that is wrong almost all the time, and thus not useful).

ANDREW STEPHENSON…suppose…just suppose…that you had contact with people who served in “the sand box”.

And suppose…just suppose…that several of them…not even in the same place at the same time…related to you a story about a young moslem who was vetted and cleared at the camp a Khandahar airport…frequently ate with you…was cleared to carry an AK-47 inside the wire…

Just out of the blue…opened up on a group of troops playing “shirts and skins” basketball…

And just suppose each and every one of the witnesses of such an event gave you the same advice….

DON’t (feel obliged) …to trust ANY of them….

Now I’m asking ANDREA….what does the LIBERAL PARTY feel I am obliged to do?
commented 2019-01-20 19:14:12 -0500
Thank you for that input JOHN PATTERSON…now explain to me why she did what she did while flying a false flag?

If she was trying to cast moslems in an even worse light, then what she did was by no means innocent….and if she was trying to discredit the honest efforts of others to get at and reveal the truth…that is also dispicable…..and if she just did not care as long as she got attention…then she needs help.

If there was noble cause here please inform us….I for one am all ears.

As a fan of both the Menzoid and The Rebel, I feel the need to clarify some of the details of this article. I have never met Ms. Tyler Thompson, but I do sympathize with her position on most issues. With regards to the person who attacked her, I do happen to have met the person who was charged, Qe’lyn Titian. By no means am I defending what she did to Ms. Thompson (especially considering where it was done, at a rally in support of that murdered girl and her family), but I think that you should know that she is NOT a Muslim, she is in fact a Native transgender woman originally from Vancouver Island (why she was wearing what looked like a hijab is something only she can explain). As well (not that it really matters), it was actually chocolate milk, not coffee, that she threw at Ms. Thompson. It might also interest people to know that, while people’s ideology and political opinions can certainly change over time, Ms. Titian did once tell me that she, at one time, worked on campaigns for both Stephen Harper and Gordon Campbell. Again I am not defending what she did, I just feel there needs to be some additional information put out there before people pass judgement on her.

Andrew Stephenson your comment is ridiculous , i have interacted with many and work with some, there are good ones and bad ones. I doubt you have met very many.

Andrew Stephenson:

Yeah, sure. Let’s narrow down the sample to a few select individuals, and use that as our basis for comments in the public space.

So, you basically admit that your comment was anecdotal, misleading even. For someone in STEM, of which I’m a part of too, by the way, you may have misunderstood some of the founding principles of science.

@Andrew Stephensen: Your comment about having yet to meet a Muslim “that isn’t an outstanding individual” is preposterous at best. Or could it be that you’re the one who has only met them on the internet? Your statement would be like me saying “I have yet to meet a Canadian who isn’t an outstanding individual”. "

Granted, this is in the context of a STEM program at one of Canada’s foremost universities, so of course there is selection bias towards upstanding citizens. However, I do agree that every group does have its bad apples, irrespective of religion.

To one and all… The fact is that the PPC’s ability in just four short months to form a party, and riding associations from coast to coast, and get nominees in all currently electable ridings within that short timeframe, is scaring “The Shit” out of the other parties… There is a PPC “high tide” surging that the existing parties, the media, and “the gurus amongst us” are trying to ignore but no longer will be able to do so in the coming weeks and months… It is indeed going to be a seldom seen “political spring” across Canada; and the Buttskies and the Boy Blunders are starting to “shit bricks” in Ottawa…

I’ve met Muslims on both ends of the spectrum of decency, and I can assure you that they are just like every other people on this earth. Some are excellent, some are good, some are bad, and some are real assh*les. Trying to paint them all with the “outstanding” brush only weakens your argument.

Our country has long ago separated church and state. Don’t open the door for it to come back in. We’ve had to suffer the Catholic church long enough, I’ll certainly not allow Islam to come and replace it.
commented 2019-01-18 17:55:18 -0500
Have you ever actually interacted with Muslims on a personal basis, or are you relying on information you find on the internet to come to that conclusion? I have yet to meet one that isn’t an outstanding individual. If they want access to Sharia based arbitration and both individuals agree, then I have no problem with that – it doesn’t affect me at all since adding a new option does not diminish existing ones.

If you look objectively at the news from Europe, you’l find that crimes perpetuated by Muslim immigrants are a small fraction of the whole. Not to say that they don’t occur, but sources like Breitbart, Spencer Fernando, etc, are only reporting those ones rather than the bigger picture. That can lead to a misleading conclusion based on perception bias rather than reality.

Sweden is … um … generally pretty nice. A few bad spots, but we have those too, and it’s just as specious to condemn the entire country on a few bad spots as it would be to call Canada a land of meth-crazed stabbers because of a few incidents in Winnipeg’s North End.

Mr-Babies-Are-Parasires, as you know I am a social conservative (is there any other kind?). You are once again demonstrating the 3 Pillars of Leftiedom- in particular the 3rd Pillar which is the refusal to exercise discernment.

Freedom of religion is fine until you run into a religion which is predicated on destroying or enslaving anyone who does not hold to that religion. Christianity does not, Judaism does not, Hinduism does not, Buddhism does not. Etc. But islam does. Anyone who actually objectively looks at the news from Europe or anywhere that islam goes will quickly come to the conclusion that when muslims make up more than about 15% of the population trouble soon follows.

So it is wise to exercise the discernment that does not rely on knee-jerk moral equivalence where none exists. Freedom of religion for those who do want to kill or enslave us. Rational thought is necessary if we are to live in liberty.

Angie Stevenson… Excellent article that you provided except I don’t think you read your own material… Bernier is pleased to have her in his camp while you would imply otherwise .!! "

But not the social conservatism, which is my point (that the CBC calling her out, forced them to respond).

“Al Peterson commented 18 hours ago
Mr-Babies-Are-Parasites, Bernier announced w at the founding of the PPC that it would be like the CPC- no social conservative platforms. Bernier is more of a libertarian than a conservative. We’ve known that for a long time. "

You may realize that. I’m not sure a lot of your colleagues do. Around here social conservatism seems to be a pretty big deal – is there actually widespread support for a party which vocally (in theory, at least) support inclusivity, including “Canadian Values” such as freedom of religion, including for Muslims? Bernier does NOT support a return to a paternalistic Christian state – he’s pro-choice and shows no sign of being religious at all.

Is your dislike of the CBC and/or milk board so strong that you’ll support a guy who has here visibly suppressed a social conservative, anti SOGI candidate in the name of inclusivity? Or perhaps it’s because he favours slightly reducing immigration, under the hopes/misconception that the Harper era-level 250,000 he suggests means none?

I should have clarified The ‘she’ to which I referred in my post below. I was commenting on the now-jettisoned Liberal candidate in the Burnaby by-election.
As for PPC I am for it and if it does split the vote, so be it since Sheer has no intention of embracing real rightwing conservative values but works on the principle that "if Joe Clark could edge out a Trudeau (see 1979) then my 21st century impression of Joe Clark can edge out another one. He is deluding himself.

Far be it from me to help a Liberal who gets into political trouble but In my opinion she did nothing wrong. She is a victim of Liberal backroom machinations to make sure Jagmeet wins in Burnaby. Why? Because the Libs do not fear Singh and stand to inherit all those leftist votes who will leave him before the fall gen. election. What they do fear is that if Singh loses in Burnaby then Nathan Cullen will take over the party and he will be a far more effective critic of JT. He will be able to raise money and (possibly) restore the NDP to its pre-Jack Leyton position.

WHY?

Because that way …with a PPC win….there will be at least ONE seat in parliament NOT SUBJECT TO ANDREW SCHEER’S PARTY WHIP….and btw…not subject to political correction over relatively IRRELAVANT issues."

==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

That is assuming there is a PPC candidate in my riding.

If it looks like the PPC candidate will win in my riding I will vote for him/her otherwise I will vote for the CPC candidate even though I really do not like the CPC presently. Strategic voting.

Heck, I might even vote for the Libertarian candidate if it looks like he/she is leading in my riding.

Liza is correct that the PPC needs to gain momentum.

Four more years of Trudeau?!?!?! That would be a disaster!

I was listening to local radio this afternoon, a call in. They were asking whether or not Wang was racist. Personally I wouldn’t say so, however I would say that her racial preference was showing (which I think is normal but not need not be exclusive). However it has no place in the political arena.

She wanted to unresign, saying that she was just stating a fact that Jagmeet Singh was Indian. Maybe she should have said Singh has a lot of Indian separatist connections and has yet to denounce the Khalistan separatist movement instead. I would say that would be fair game.
I don’t think she is a racist. Well she may be, I wouldn’t know, but her mild comment doesn’t brand her as one in my opinion.

But… what struck me most was that the Liberals said, no way Wang, you are out. The importance of cutting ties with your weakest link was discussed and advocated as always the way to go on the call in show. As if a law written in stone. People from all political sides were saying it. I think that gives the eagle eyed watchers like Alinsky groupie Butts, more ammo.

If that is the rule, all the left has to do and indeed has done over and over as we have seen, is to direct their rancid laser onto whatever statement they can spin into a self serving narrative and zap, that person is a racist and character assassinated, career over.

Bernier does not subscribe to any of that nonsense and pushes back forcefully as anyone who follows him will know. We need more of that. We must be done with the cowering or lose.

Time to call bullcrap on that. This time with Wang though, proves that the left is eating itself. Their crap is coming home to roost. Hard not to enjoy it.

It’s worth a try.

Maybe Scheer can slip through, god knows he should be able to considering what a failure Justin has been. However it is imperative, whether the result is a minority liberal or minority cpc gov. , that we bring another voice into the halls of Parliament. It is time to set the foundations for a real substantive about face and make some moves for a better outcome down the road.

The PPC need to get in the game on what ever level they can achieve this time. Its just my opinion and I am not discounting the possibility of great success as Canadians become progressively disgusted with our rapid decline, and the unsatisfactory (to me at least) response from our opposition leader.

I have stated that several times here on this website, but it is not a popular comment among several here.

It only seems common sense to me that the Conservative vote sill be split making it quite likely Trudeau will win another four agonizing four years of destruction.

At least I can take some solace that Notley will be gone in May this year.
