Why Chrystia Freeland "should be careful about tossing around the phrase ‘white supremacy’"

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Last week Canada’s foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, tried to block me from attending a press conference at her Defend Media Freedom Conference in the UK.

Freeland’s press secretary asserted wasn’t enough room for me and the only other self-identified conservative journalist, Andrew Lawton, at the only media availability for Freeland being held at 16-acre London Printworks building where her international press freedom conference was being co-hosted by the UK and Canadian governments.

The mainstream media protested this attempt to censor us and threatened to boycott the press conference, forcing Freeland to relent. No one was more surprised than me.

I captured that rare and shocking moment of journalistic solidarity on camera. But I haven’t shown you what I was able to ask in that press conference, and how Freeland responded to me.

She didn’t actually answer me. Instead, Freeland implied the Jewish owned and operated media company I work for is somehow sympathetic to white supremacy.

Today, I’ll tell you why Freeland should be careful when tossing around such irresponsible, dangerous and untrue rhetoric in light of her own family history of Nazi collaboration. Her grandfather ran a Nazi propaganda newspaper in Ukraine. Freeland’s gramps eventually fled to Vienna to avoid capture by the Russians and continued publishing his hateful fish wrap in Austria before landing in Canada — instead of Nuremberg — after the war.

I’ll also tell you about Freeland’s secret meetings with the Islamic supremacist foreign minister of Pakistan at her London free speech conference — a man whose government sentenced a Christian woman to death for insulting Islam.

Violent left-wing extremists like Antifa wander around the streets with weapons and face masks looking for so-called Nazis to punch. Any Nazi will do even if that Nazi isn't one at all, but is, instead, an Israel-loving conservative, maliciously libeled by their own government.

Freeland’s huge lie puts a target on my back and on the backs of my colleagues.

If I get another chance to question Freeland another time in a press conference, I'll ask her how many times she'd like to see me assaulted in the course of my work as a journalist.

Good research work, Sheila! Windbags like Freeland need to be exposed. I love it as well that her grandfather was a Nazi collaborator. Just proves how wicked people shouldn’t call others the same names. Worse yet, Freeland doubled down on praising her grandfather. If I knew of any ancestors who were traitors, I’d condemn them and declare my disgust at their treasonous behaviour. But Freeland isn’t known for sense. She’s as flaky as a blizzard and as empty as interstellar space.

That’s a serious accusation. That’s slander. There’s no reason for fools. Without rules it’s chaos. I don’t understand why we have to follow them and they don’t

Liza Rosie.. Good to hear it’s still on.

I’m with Rebelation on suing Freeland.. The Liberal wingnuts have been programming and brainwashing the general public through their communist broadcaster the CBC for far too long.

Time to put the legal boots to them is now!

Max Bernier getting some air time in Calgary.. Glad to hear him make it crystal clear why his nick name is Mad Max..

Speaking of liberal party representatives inciting violence, antifa threatened and caused the venue to cancel their contract with the PPC for the meet and greet in Guelph with Maxime Bernier this Friday. I don’t even recognize my country anymore. The event is sold out and will still happen this Friday July 19, but the location remains a secret until just before the event.

She shouldn’t be getting away with that kind of labeling. She knows what she’s doing , it has been a tactic from the beginning to brand all conservatives as white supremacists. Its absurd. Where does Freeland get off with that kind of defamation?

I just can’t see most sane people buying the slop she is trying to push, but her people eat it up. She shouldn’t be able to get away with that kind of talk uncountered. Plus she is endangering all conservatives. Its scary to see that people can be that easily manipulated into violence, but look at the violence perpetrated by antifa. They are not affiliated with
conservatives. Antifa sits firmly on the left, only attacks conservatives, and the liberals never denounce their violence, ever. In fact they call for it with talk such as Freeland’s.

By the way, it looks like the PPC is the most diverse party of any of them looking at their candidates for MP’s.

The video was cut short. Is there a reason? Something we should know?

Did you not call her a liar and demand an apology on the spot? Call her a censor and a phony?

Conservatives better learn how to fight, and fast!!

Sue her!!

I mean it! It would make big news and force the issue. You can also pursue a private prosecution for Breach of Trust for denying you access to all those conferences. She has no proof Rebel supports White Supremacy, but you have proof Liberals are crass mud-slinging, truth-hating / truth-deniers.

She put on a rouse, that she believes in free press when she does not. It’s your job as journalists to expose that. Not just through your reports, but any way you can get it to the public at large. Legal action will do that.

Thing is, if you don’t pursue legal action against her then you’re equally to blame for letting her get away with her rouse. Suing her is a form of journalism, b/c it would let the public at large know that Liberals are lying censorious thugs, and gain new viewers / respect for Rebel.

The great political / media distraction red herrings of our time.
“White supremacy” and “Russian collusion”

What a vacuous air head Christia Freeland is. She has about as much sense as an empty piggy bank. She’s as bright as a burned-out light bulb.
commented 2019-07-16 20:42:54 -0400
Liberals have a white inferiority complex.
commented 2019-07-16 19:20:54 -0400
Who gives a fuck what they call us anymore. It’s gotten pathetic and ridiculous.

When Sheila started asking her question, Freeland’s body language & hair shoving told it all. When speaking to an audience versus responding to a Rebel question, she showed her true colours. Oh, all journalists should be respected, be allowed to ask questions, when if it would not have been for the MSM, The Rebel would have been left on the doorstep as usual, by this government who are such hypocrites when it comes to Conservative journalism & who forever use divisive race baiting for their defence. Sheila, you should have also have asked Freeland, how can you call this conference Press Freedom knowing very well they would not allow The Rebel in the room. This is so pathetic & should not be tolerated. If they don’t want the tough questions or criticism where due, then stay out of politics. She had a lot of nerve accusing the Rebel of being sympathetic to white supremacy, when she is acting like one herself you might say by being superior to you because of her stature as a Minister & if she doesn’t want you in there, then too bad if you don’t like it, she’s the boss. She doesn’t give a hoot about you or your audience & we all know why. Maybe she should be schooled on what Freedom of the Press means, because she doesn’t, that’s for sure.

She should be careful, but she isn’t. Since the PM, he has ruined our country already. His actions speak volumes, I have never despised a PM, as him. Just thinking about him, my blood boils. We aren’t rid of him yet. More destruction to come.

I simply cannot suffer someone who talks like her, slowly with affectation like she’s some sort of scientist. It’s so petty. White supremacist? Who cares? Canada was founded by whites, built by whites, and as far as I can tell she’s white, a big white dummie. Shut up Freeland, nobody wants to hear your hate speech.

The left-tarded are ALWAYS guilty of the very thing they accuse their adversary’s of. It’s Pure Projection.

How can the Communists in the “Liberal Party”, in the 21st century, get away with labeling Conservatives as “White Supremacists”? How did we even get to this place?

Excellent reporting Sheila

AS far as freelands concerned takes one to know one as far as being RACIST or not is concerned! She should not be in the position she’s in all she knows is belittleling her questioners she must have learned that from trudeau
commented 2019-07-16 03:14:12 -0400
Maybe this ain’t the best advice to give, but it’s grounded in morality and principle.
When Crusty Freekland threw that white supremacist slander at you Sheila, THEREBEL and us subscribers, you should have drifted the lyin’ fascist and knocked her on her fat socialist arse!
I think the left would call that acting proactively…in other circumstances.

I guess there’s a good reason I’m not in the advice-giving business…

Great Comment from Twitter and it applies to leftists in Canada as well
“I want everyone to pay attention how Democrats are always on the move when faced with real questions”

Left wing progressives thinking they are saviors for non whites and Maligning them when they do not hold the same opinions as their White Saviors do sounds like White Supremacy to me.

The Freeland apple didn’t fall far from the Chomiak tree. He vilified the enemies of his Nazi government and she has taken up the same torch and vilifies anyone who she perceives to be an enemy of our Nazi government.
commented 2019-07-15 23:39:11 -0400
Like all of the left these days Freeland and Trudeau have only accusations of bigotry. Its sad how the left have descended into such a pit and abandoned all reason and the ability to debate issues intelligently.
