CBC, “regressive left” attack Jason Kenney's innocuous Aboriginal Day tweet

Candice MalcolmRebel Contributor

When do trolls on Twitter translate into national news? Well, when those trolls are from the regressive left and their target is a former Conservative cabinet minister.

Let’s look at a recent example from the CBC. The headline reads:

Jason Kenney called out on Twitter for poorly worded Aboriginal day message.

But, what exactly did this “poorly worded” message say? Kenney wrote:

On Aboriginal Day we honour those who first settled in Canada, and their generations of descendants.

Seems like a pretty nice tweet. Accurate and respectful of Aboriginal peoples who settled in Canada before the Europeans.

But the regressive left disagreed. The CBC story provides a handful of hysterical mob-like responses where trolls call Kenney a colonialist, talk about his privilege, and mock his use of the word “settler” to describe Canada’s aboriginal peoples.

They’ve decided “settlers” is their word, turning it into a derogatory term to describe the Europeans who came to the Americas centuries later.

It doesn’t matter that Kenney’s point is accurate:

The first people to settle in North America came across the Bering land bridge. Scientific evidence shows that, but regressive lefties don’t care about facts.

The CBC decided this was newsworthy and took a side. They say it was a poorly worded tweet, stating it as a fact. Then the reporter complains that Kenney failed to see why people were frustrated, showing his two follow up tweets wondering what the fuss is about.

How much of our money do these guys get again...?

Keith Richards says: “Fuck off ya whiny cuck!!!!”

His comment is certainly strong in language. Is it really a response to the earlier comment?

Too often The Rebel readers and commenters are labelled as ignorant and idiotic.

Maybe we should be more tolerant. People on here have read the news story and have something to say about it. Out of respect we should hear their comments.

It is unfortunate that The Rebel uses phrases or terms that are not really English words, such as “regressive leftists”.

Fuck off ya whiny cuck!!!!

What the hell does that term mean? Likely it is intended as some sort of an attack against “leftists” but it really holds no meaning.

The Rebel knows that a percentage of its readership has somewhat weak literacy. It seems a bit cruel to play on the weakness of others.

Bah who gives a shit what the left has to say. Time to start shouting them down and fighting back at every opportunity.
commented 2016-06-25 21:55:11 -0400
The CBC was here first and they invited the natives to come from the what is now the Russian peninsula. So yes the CBC has the right (sorry left ) to dictate what we the guilty, white middle aged that worked, died in wars, gave our sweat and tears to make this country great to write whatever they want. Intitled to their intitilments. WTF

Native or Quebecer, NO Canadian should have more rights than any other Canadian.

Lilly white Amish, Mennonites and Quakers live off the land while natives live off the hand of the Canadians they openly say they hate and will never forgive.

Canada Day is the one day of the year that Natives forgive us.

Being a Conservative these days is kinda like being a Christian….you have to be prepared to be persecuted and martyred.
This is only part of the beginning for Jason Kenney.

It’s a fact north american natives are from Russia and crossed the Bering Straight a long time ago. Take a look of that recent picture of Russian natives living teepees today and then come and tell me they are not related with Canadian natives …. Jason Kenney is right aboriginals are settlers from Russia. Candice Malcolm says scientific research proves it. I say that a easy Google image search proves it.

Russian natives with a teepee behind them
Russian natives
Russian native fishermen (You’ll notice the wood carvings on the poles beside them are the same we find in BC among natives fishermen)

Hey asshole – check out the views for CBC socialist shit – about 500 per video.

Now check out The Rebel Views per vid – anywhere from 2000 to 10,000 – some over 100,000.

Get it ya fucking cuck???

Michael Mann CBC is not that popular. Being forced on people through the left wing CRTC does not mean popularity. And if you get your news there it explains why you know little. Please show me the reports and updates on the Levin trial or the report on the attack of the Jewish family in Calgary LMAO!

By the way, Mike, my last post assumes you are literate past the maximum Twitter characters?

Speaking of being a moron, check out your pen name persona’s research. Notably his Nature Magasine Trick. Hence, while not entirely disowned by the regressive establishment, they look on him as the embarrassingly drunk uncle.

Time to change your pen name, to not be a moron.

I heard a story about 12years ago that bones were found on an Indian reservation that dated back further than any in Canada’s history. They were found to be of Caucasian descent and the First Nations demanded they be returned to their custody for concealment. Is there any way to find facts on this?
commented 2016-06-25 18:09:21 -0400
What an awesome segment Candice, thankyou. Keep up the truthful reporting/commenting. The Cbc should be ashamed to receive so much funding from taxpayers yet only represent one political group in the country.
Great to see the comment on the indigenous immigration across the Bering Land bridge. So true. They need to recognize European contributions in Canada i’am tired of the reverse racism. We should remember they lived here as nomads, and really did not settle the land agriculturally or build much of anything. ( Not as a dig, just a fact).
commented 2016-06-25 17:43:52 -0400
Why do we even acknowledge these libtards? The CBC should be ashamed, but alas, they think they (i.e. the union) are leaders. What a crock. Thanks Candice for clarifying.
commented 2016-06-25 17:30:00 -0400
It is my opinion the best tactic it to ignore them. Just sit back as they self implode.

CBC gets $1.4 BILLION per year and has 186,000 youtube subscribers.

The Rebel is bootstrapping and has 211,000 youtube subscribers.

This is yet another indication of how fucking useless the CBC really is and how out of touch they are – but it doesn’t matter since the librano mafioso pays the CBC $1.4 BILLION per year to try and control Canadian narrative.

In conclusion – FUCK YOU CBC!!!!

Isn’t it apparent?

Would you be pissed off if your competitor was subsidized with billions by the Canadian goobmint ? Would you say something? I sure would.
So why is the media party so quiet on this matter??
That’s why all the news outlets write the same stories with the same opinions – ALL THE TIME!!!!!
commented 2016-06-25 16:38:15 -0400
The Regressive Leftist CBC will lie, spin and brainwash as usual. Maybe they will also be upset at the assertion that these so called “aboriginals” immigrated from Asia and settled in NA and carried on slavery amongst themselves. White settlers freed the Asian immigrants from slavery.
commented 2016-06-25 16:29:48 -0400
I love this term “regressive” for the lefties. Let’s keep using it. That lying, deceitful group stole the word “progressive” to falsely identify themselves. Let the rest of us just keep shoving the true term “regressive” down their throats until they choke on their own idiocy.
commented 2016-06-25 16:27:11 -0400
If you talk to regressive leftards about the media, they will tell you that any right wing outlets like the rebel or sun is tabloid fodder and all lies. Most won’t even consider reading it. This article is indeed beyond stupid. When the left can’t find anything legitimate from conservatives to complain about they just make stuff up and start believing it no matter that it makes no sense.
commented 2016-06-25 16:09:27 -0400
The CBC is Canada’s Orwellian MINISTRY OF TRUTH.
commented 2016-06-25 16:05:02 -0400
I wonder who the Aboriginal peoples stole their lands from first. It’s not like the land was empty when they showed up, right? And then, other Aboriginal peoples moved in and took it from other Aboriginal peoples.

Aboriginal peoples stole their land first; we’re stealing it back.
commented 2016-06-25 15:49:57 -0400
Kenny makes the point in a subversive way, that we are all equal in this great country and that attacks the narrative that evil white men came to North America and stole the land from the natives. Many people profit, wield power and soothe their stewed white guilt by thumping us over the head with it. My wife and I have native blood, so don’t accuse me of being racist.
commented 2016-06-25 15:37:54 -0400
This is beyond stupid. Mr. Kenny’s comments were both complimentary and accurate. The CBC has been printing half truths regarding Canada’s Aboriginal communities for years without permitting comment to repudiate their falsehoods. The sad part is that some Canadians actually believe all the propaganda they are being fed. This seems particularly true in the urban communities where so many feel l that they will not be considered racist if they just go along with the misinformation.
commented 2016-06-25 15:18:23 -0400
The Architect LOL no kidding WHO DID THEY TAKE IT FROM. One can be sure if the CBC and the MSM doesn’t like it I AM ALL FOR IT, But I have to agree alberta needs Kenny to fight the idiots in Ottawa Ontario and quebec, and especially the worst of all THE NDP
commented 2016-06-25 15:09:40 -0400
The CBC doesn’t even try to be neutral any more. It’s all about their preferred party and it’s leader Trudeau .

There must be a way to show these dolts how much we detest their bias views.
