Trudeau orders reporters to delete news — and Media Party applauds

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

There was a lot of confusion surrounding the mass murder at a Quebec mosque on Sunday night, as we’ve been reporting from the scene, at QuebecTerror.com.

At first, police arrested two suspects, Andre Bissonnette and Mohamed Belkhadir. Witnesses reported that the shooters shouted, "Allah Akbar."

The CBC, CTV, Quebec's TVA, and foreign media all ran with that information.

But by mid-day, these "facts" had changed.

Yesterday, Justin Trudeau’s top PR aide, Kate Purchase, sent a scolding letter to Fox News, accusing them of tweeting “false and misleading language relating to the identity of the suspect.”

But the Fox tweet had simply said that one suspect was Moroccan, and cited reports to that effect, which had been running everywhere, including the CBC.

In journalism, when news changes, you update it. You don’t delete it.

(And when did the prime minister’s office get into the business of telling reporters to delete stories? Could you even imagine if Stephen Harper had demanded that a reporter somewhere delete information?)

So how did the Canadian media react to Kate Purchase’s message?

CBC deleted posts with any mention of a Muslim suspect. CTV and the Toronto Star were thrilled. So were the Canadian Press and Global News.

The CBC had a pundits panel on the subject, and not one of them had any qualms about the Prime Minister demanding that reporters delete news.

Now, here’s what’s next:

Montreal police have arrested a man “accused of online hate speech targeting Muslims.”

Making death threats is a crime. Terrorism is a crime. But hate is not a crime; it’s a human emotion.

But look at the last sentence:

"The force is hiring 55 people whose jobs will include monitoring social media sites for hate speech.”

That’s not police work. That’s censorship.

I predict that The Rebel eventually will face some sort of legal sanction.

And you know that the media will be 100% supportive of it...

DREW WAKARIUK, “Sadly we may find that Mulcair will do more to fight this than the conservatives.” Not likely as it was Tom Mulcair who introduced the motion (based upon e-petition e-411) unanimously passed on October 26th which is the precursor to Motion M-103.

GHERI CELIN, How is not terrorism???

Is it strictly because the shooter wasn’t from the Middle East??

Wake the f**k up, this is a made up story, 90% is bullsh*t, Ezra is conning you..

Once again Ezra is telling a half truth, the Prime Minister told Fox to remove a tweet that stated that one of the shooters was Moroccan well after it was established that he was a witness, FOX obliged & apologized…

This IS fake News, Ezra Levant is a con man…

I think a petition should be drawn to demand that PM Little Potato retract his “make no mistake this is terrorism” statement in parliament. His statement was nothing but “fake news”.

If anyone has any doubts that we are being driven into a totalitarian, fascist state because ‘it just couldn’t happen here’, well look around you, this is how it happens…

interesting times we’re living in. keep up the much needed work.

Perhaps we should have Canada seek to be part of the United States under the U.S. constitution (not a North American Union). Donald Trump could help make Canada great again if that were to happen.

I think Justin Trudeau and the lefty media are terrified of The Rebel. They never dreamed Donald Trump had a chance with all the massive money being thrown in Hillary’s direction and Trump largely credits Breitbart. The liberals stand at the shoreline quivering looking at Europe and see Merkel plummeting Brexit and Le Penne and they are a nervous wreck. They would rather our citizens were kept in the dark about the serious problems caused by their leader’s reckless immigration policy.

Hey Justin—- Tell us all about WHOM has no Culture. If you want to waste money on bullshiit— don’t tell us about yourself—- Justin It has always amazed me how much the Natives know—- It is even more amazing— What they think about YOU!
commented 2017-02-02 03:31:17 -0500
The really good thing is that we have a Prime Minister that has informed us many times— That we don’t have a Culture . I know that the Froggies in PQ certainly think—- that they have a Culture. And rightfully so. My people have lived across the RIVER—- from the Frenchies— and there are a few things that we don’t need a fucking Politician to tell us. We can fight each other and we will always have RESPECT for each other. That is just something that is way beyond the Mentality of Justin. I only joke— when I insult the Frenchies. - They are my Friends and they can take joke.

“Damn, Jay, are you a pathological liar and deceiver or is your deception completely intentional?”

Jay Kelly has proven that he is indeed a pathological liar time and again. He must truly enjoy his work as a red tent shill.

It is a very strange situation —When people that are Patriots .. could easily be called Terrorists or Traitors. Very strange. Doesn’t make much sense. https://youtu.be/mwFqRB2FQu4

How could any person ,being of sound mind, say that they are Proud to be a fucking LIBERAL
They must be traitors that would sell out their neighbors for a Dime.

So where is that hackers group called Anonymous? They always spouted off that they were protectors of liberties and free speech, so i call on them to act in this case.

Jawohl Mein Fuhrer Trudeau!!

I propose setting up a rebel HQ somewhere off Canadian land, so the Canadian government can not shut you down entirely. At this rate, it is only a matter of time before the CRTC, HRC or the RCMP come after the rebel.

We shouldn’t be surprised. Liberals deleted much of Stephen Harper’s history on the internet. 1984 indeed.

Jay Kelly disinfoms by omission – omission, he did not scroll down and publish all of CCC S319 statute:

Hey media , if Justin tells you to delete something , tell him to go f*ck his hat.

Jay Kelly the legal definition could apply to sports fans arguing about their teams.

Rob Greely you are damn right, and the people who support his party and their ideology are acting more and more like Nazi thugs all the time. The resemblance is quite scary.
