Media calls Quebec mosque killer a Trump fan. Is that true?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

As you know from watching Faith Goldy's reports from the scene, news is still emerging from the mass shooting at a Quebec City mosque on Sunday night. Six people killed, 19 injured.

Initial reports said there were two shooters; police arrested two people, and held them overnight. All day, CBC was running news that eyewitnesses had said that someone in the attack had shouted, “Allah Akbar.”

Then suddenly that all changed.

The one Muslim man in custody, Mohamed Belkhadir, was released. Police said he was a witness, not a suspect.

And that all-day report about “Allah Akbar”? That changed by nightfall, too.

There may be a clear explanation to all of this, that will emerge through the courts.

But what about the media narrative, which repeats that the suspect is “a fan of Trump”?

Many of these stories were written by one man, Colin Perkel, a left-wing activist with Canadian Press wire service. That’s how “the narrative” gets built in Canada.

I’ll show you the suspect’s Facebook page, which has since been taken down.

Indeed, he did click “like” on Trump, and Marine Le Pen. So have nearly 20 million other people.

Look who else Alexandre Bissonnette follows:

Jack Layton. The NDP itself. The left-wing Parti Quebecois. He follows Catholic popes and anti-Catholic atheists. Even Dempsters Bread, for some reason.

But because he clicked “like” on a Facebook page, he has been branded a Trumpist, and that is the rationale for the attack.

Today, CBC employees were criticizing The Rebel — and us alone — for reporting that Belkhadir was a suspect, even though the rest of the media had initially reported that, too.

Here’s my prediction:

In the next 90 days, you will see attempts by the Trudeau government, probably in concert with YouTube and Facebook, to censor The Rebel.

To ban us in the name of "Islamophobia." Because we don’t follow the official narrative...

TONIGHT'S GUESTS, to talk about President Trump's executive order instituting a 90-day pause on immigration from seven high-risk countries, is author and free speech activist Pamela Geller, and Canadian immigration lawyer, Guidy Mamann.

Question: There were reports of two shooters by a witness in the Mosque, why do the authorities deny that?
Answer: racists!

Question: What did Moroccan suspect turned witness say he saw inside?
Answer: Islamophobe!

Question: Where is the information on the weapon(s) used?
Answer: fascist! Question:Why is it reporting, when the cbc sends Mansbridge down there , but the Rebel is accused of making money on the bodies of the dead( thanks for that one Barb) when thousands of enquiring minds want coverage that isn’t rehearsed agenda and is willing to pay for it?

Answer: deplorables!

The fact that the left is so darn ‘touchy’ and take offense to any inquiry just make them look more ridiculous. Since when was it a crime to question authority in this country?
Oh yeah.

If there is nothing to fear from Islam then why have governments installed all the metal and exotic bomb detectors at all airports ? Why did they need thousands of police officers and security and routes into Times Square blocked off with rows of concrete barriers? Seems to me that if there is Islamaphobia, the main culprits are governments themselves.
Or are all these measures taken to protect us from followers of the Dalai Lama?

This is the intent then of the Islamophobia bill? To crush free speech?

As for Trump’s US, what they should do is demand Bond payments for the right to immigrate there. Say $50,000 for a family. If things get worse here, I would gladly pay it.

No, Terrence, the MSM is lying like usual. Just fake news. We do not know his politics.

Great show, Ezra Levant. David Square has the same thoughts that I have. Something weird and very smelly rotten is going on in Quebec and Parliament Hill.
commented 2017-02-01 13:34:11 -0500
The fact this guy was also a fan of Jack Layton and the N.D.P. and other Quebec separatist governments and Popes and anti-Catholic atheists seems like quite a confusing assortment of beliefs to be able to determine it was his support for Trump that motivated this attack. How convenient to scrub his face book page.
commented 2017-02-01 12:44:09 -0500
Trudeau Jr. was so quick to condemn the Quebec mosque shootings as an act of terrorism (Muslim not mentioned), it makes me wonder whether he had foreknowledge of the incident, the subsequent cover up plan and the convenient opportunity it would offer to blame Trump via the mainstream media for the attack. Something is rotten in Quebec and on Parliament Hill.

Paul McCullough: I certainly hope the left getting dumped in mass in Europe in their next elections might serve as a timely reminder their actions have consequences. Merkel is at her lowest in the polls and it is for one reason.

- The mainstream fake news media is desperate to pin anything they can on Trump. It’s quite disgusting. The Rebel is growing because it’s filling a demand for real news. Getting rid of it won’t eliminate that demand, it’ll make the Liberals look like petty tyrants.

- I’m thinking president Trump’s executive order may be his way of giving the crybullies something that’s really nothing to meltdown over & make them look like hypocrites & idiots. They want their “hands up, don’t shoot” bumper sticker talking point to chant & it’s exposing them as the frauds they are.

What was oddly funny and grotesque was the rebel getting called out for fake news when they simply repeated the story that appeared on other stations such as CP24. So in essence they were calling bull shit on themselves. I first saw the names Alexandre Bisonette and Mohomad Khadir which later was repeated as Mohomed Mohamed Khadir then later appeared as Mohamed Belkhadir and yet it was somehow the rebel’s fault. WOW

Peter Netterville: I do appreciate your sentiment but I do think we have felt so defeated for so long our actions are manifesting it. We need to start demanding our rights and settle for nothing less.
commented 2017-02-01 11:29:46 -0500
Peter Netterville: The problem is there is too many inconsistencies. Not all Muslims agree with each other. Sunni and Shia and other think they are right. To claim you are right is to claim the other is wrong. So who does the Supreme court recognize as the true authority? Also where is the freedom of my religion if my religion says all others are wrong as most religions do. How can any court body hope to address those concerns within the boundary of the charter. It needs to be challenged and defeated not repealed.

Edward Jobin said, "Talk of speech banning criticism of Islam is inept and illegal and should be challenged to the supreme court. "

Unfortunately the SCoC would uphold the law because it would have been enacted by the Liberals. The SCoC is very left wing, very pro-Liberal.

Stephen Hicken: I believe most Canadians have a basic sense of fairness and we want to believe we are treating people with equality but are not hearing all the facts where it is actually the government who is not laying down the law equally. Talk of speech banning criticism of Islam is inept and illegal and should be challenged to the supreme court. Imagine if Catholic priests accused of pedophilia tried to stop the criticism by having hate laws passed. The other side of the coin is everyone is so afraid their every word will be taken out of context and they will be smeared as some kind of racist. First off the media keeps intentionally confusing these terms. Islam is not a race. It is a religion. There are white Muslims as well as many other shades. It has zero to do with race but by trying to blur the line they are trying to scare the public into thinking by disagreeing with one religion you are akin to a racist. This is complete nonsense. I think it all stems from the moral relative idea all religions are equal. That appeals to everyone’s sense of well wishes but it is nothing more than wishful thinking. I have no problem respecting people believe differently than myself and gladly admit there are people in other religions I like and admire but I don’t feel any need to agree with them on every point. Many religions believe they alone are the true religion. Many religions believe in a one God where as others believe in many gods. Some believe in an after life and some believe in none and some believe you keep coming back. To try and make a claim that all these beliefs are some how equivalent is patently absurd and logical contradiction. Logic dictates something cannot be both true and untrue at the same time in the same manner. I actually saw a video the other day that was one of the few times I agree some what with Bill Maher on most of what he said. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCUpgZaClZA

The US is looking like a desirable place to live and work if Trump full fills all his promises. Trouble is , why would he want to allow any socialistic commies from Canada to immigrate to the US?
commented 2017-02-01 10:47:12 -0500
Trump is going to be blamed for everything from someone’s toilet backing up to climate change, all because of his skin colour and religion.

I like the numbers 7 and 11 so I hope when they tattoo me at the gulag they consider this a request.
commented 2017-02-01 10:28:54 -0500
Suppressing free speech is the main tenet of Islamists so it is no wonder why the leftist Liberal Party is embracing Islam. They too have a deep hatred for free speech and expression of anything other than their own mantra.
The question is going to be if Canadians that value what their country was are willing to be sent to the gulag to defend liberty and free speech.

Lets hope your prediction does not come true. If you disappear the other side of the story disappears with you.

There is a mania in this country . Its almost a love for anything Islamic. As if they want to be ruled by Islam. Very strange. If this comes to be the reality I’m afraid they are not going to like what they seem to desire. This is very scary ,more so than big bad Donald.

Very revealing that the media’s message linking the shooting to Trump is choreographed so that they are all singing from the same song sheet.
commented 2017-02-01 06:04:57 -0500
President Trump could ,& just might, bring peace to entire world & the left would say he is Hilter for doing it. Its plain to see that liberals are mentally unstable.

The answer is simple if they get censored in Canada… The rebel only needs to move their operations outside the borders of this country into the US or something like that

It’s going to take a lot of time in court and a lot of crowdfunding to beat this one.

Rebel Fan-that’s the whole idea. And who do you think will make up the panel of anti-free speech judges? Muslims?
