CJFE’s petition to ban Trump causes “united WTF moment” for journalists

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

On Friday’s episode of Rebel Roundup, Sheila Gunn Reid joined me to discuss how a group of journalists who claim to promote freedom of expression, launched a failed petition demanding the Canadian government ban Donald Trump from entering the country to attend the upcoming G7 summit.

Watch as Sheila explains what happened when the ironically named Canadian Journalists for Freedom of Expression seriously miscalculated how real journalists would respond to this politically motivated move.

Jan G , The term Pro-Choice was invented as a euphemism in order to hide the ugliness of abortion which is the termination of human life, irrespective of its stage of development.
I always interject the true terms like death, termination ,killing and murder into the conversation or argument. It makes these leftists uncomfortable and breaks down their phoney boloney virtue signalling noble arguments regarding protecting woman’s rights.

I must say, after 75 years on God’s Green Earth, and given my own journalism background, I have never seen a better definition or illustration of the word “Oxymoron”… Thank you CJFE!!

Thank you Keith Barnes.
Does everyone realize that in order to receive any funding for summer employees, employers MUST sign the agreement to supporting abortion rights in Canada?
That means any religious groups, Churches would be proving they support abortion by signing the application.
The Liberals would never stop using that to prove religious groups are prepared to support abortion if they get funding.
Just like anyone wanting to join the Lib party, must be pro-choice.
Goodbye freedom of religion, freedom of speech in Canada.

All of which is an “interesting” foreshadowing of society looks like when the press is bought and paid for by the government… “There is no Izvestia in Pravda, and no Pravda in Izvestia..” But if you don’t think that CAN’T happen here in Canada you are no wiser than the the wishful citizens of Russia in the 1920’s, Germany in the 1930’s, Cuba under Castro, or Venezuela this day… GROW UP!…

Journalist’s should report on Politics, not control them.

And there, Keith , you hit the nail on the head. I have been saying this for the last 25 years. The MSM does not just report the news they shape it. Both by what they include and obsess about and by what they ignore. One is what theologians call the sin of commission and the other is the sin of omission.

At any rate any objectivity that the MSM has had has long left the station. They are simply the Izvestia and Pravda of our times. This is why they hate Trump and The Rebel- neither depend on the MSM to get their message out and therefore, it cannot be shaped by them. Too bad the majority of Canadians have not figured this out.

Disappointed TheRebel didn’t have anything on the Washington March for Life, where President Trump made the first EVER live address to the tens of thousands of pro-life march participants.
All MSM were forced to air this live presidential address, even our pathetic cBc and ctv, because it was live.
Both Canadian anchors were, without any doubt, disgusted with the subject of pro-life marchers. The story was entitled ‘anti-abortion march’.
Without Donald Trump’s LIVE coverage of his address, the MSM would never have mentioned this pro-life event.
Now, isn’t he a smart man to have thought of that.

Disappointed with TheRebel for not mentioning this event. Canada’s pro-life efforts are being eliminated and any pro-life march this summer may just not happen since freedom of speech for pro-life has been removed from Canadians to practice.

FYI: One of the best pro-life speakers on the circuit, and she’s Canadian. Listen to her arguments if you are on the fence with subject or want to know how to address pro-abortionist.
She is TERRIFIC!

Not sure how they could ban Trump when there is a “Canada Welcomes You” open invitation to come to Canada.
Unless of course Trudeau has now decided to ‘only’ permit ISIS terrorists, Traveling Terrorists and illegal immigrants into Canada.
Besides all Trump would have to do is be dropped off at the border at Quebec, walk in and have the RCMP drive him to the G7 conference. (which coincidently is in Quebec.
In fact during the conference ‘breaks’ and ‘stretch time’ Trudeau could order up a limo and tour the G7 Leaders to the Quebec/Can/US border and demonstrate first hand how Canada welcomes illegal immigrants.
If CJFE is looking to make a statement. Now that would make a statememt.

Journalist’s should report on Politics, not control them. They should give equal and honest coverage to all sides of the political debate, with honesty and no bias.

I know, I’m dreaming of a Red Christmas. Just like the ones that Stalin had.

The fact that the American Democrats have managed to shut down the American Government, right on the anniversary of Trump’s Inauguration, says a lot for the Marxist Press.

I see civil war on the horizon, world wide.

CJFE claims to be all about journalistic freedom… fine… but they only focus on external causes for blockages to journalist’s freedom.
Let’s say that journalists were extended free access to anything anywhere, bar nothing, they still would not have journalistic freedom.
~80% of journalists are left-wing, they use words like ‘advocate’ when talking about lefties, and “extremist”, or “far-right” when talking about non-lefties… they disproportionately focus on negative aspects of conservatives, and hide negative aspects of the left…. The hide their lefty political persuasion and purposely foster a false impression of neutrality.
With all of this internal or self-imposed restiction of expression, they could never be considered “free”.
Not going to hold my breath, but if CJFE wants to promote journalistic freedom, they had better start by cleaning house, their own house.

This has to be the most pathetic..scariest time for Canada…It’s even worse than trudeau one’s reign…..

Being led by a CBC shill confirms the CJFE is just another Trudeau propaganda tool: an organization devoted to journalists kneeling to Justin and his narrative.
