CBC silent after man who threatened mosque turns out to be Muslim

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Sunday, police rushed to a large mosque in London, Ontario, responding to reports that a man was threatening to shoot people there.

Media were naturally all over the story. Even though no-one was actually shot, it was big news.

The media, and the police, and politicians get a bit weird about crimes involving Muslims. Remember when a woman in a hijab was allegedly assaulted in a Peterborough store by another woman, and it was immediately called an anti-Muslim incident, and every politician in the country denounced it?

And then, as our own Andrew Lawton reported, it turned out that the woman who allegedly did the assaulting was Muslim herself?

I’m not saying there is no anti-Muslim crime, but when there’s an anti-Muslim incident, you’d be foolish to trust the lying media to tell you the truth. So many times, the crime itself is a hoax.

So back to the London mosque. Police have released the name of the 24-year-old suspect: Omid Ghaffouri.

Well, so much for the racist Trump fan theory.

And, in fairness, most media reported that name.

Except, weirdly, not the CBC…

NEXT: Aaron Wudrick of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation joins me to talk about Liberal Finance Minister Bill Morneau's comment that "feelings" are worth spending taxpayers' money for.

THEN: Author Billy Hallowell comes on to talk about his timely new book, Fault Line: How a Seismic Shift in Culture Is Threatening Free Speech and Shaping the Next Generation.

Another story that is questionable: – the following comments are from my notes mid February 2017 when a mosque in PQ was invaded by shooters…which turned out, according to The News to be just one Caucasian shooter and the man with the Arabic surname was termed just a witness by police. Here are a couple of other sharp Canadians who have questions and just want the facts:

Somethings seems off. I just read this in another article

Last night, shortly after the shooting, a witness who asked to remain anonymous told Radio-Canada that two masked individuals entered the mosque.
“It seemed to me that they had a Québécois accent. They started to fire, and as they shot, they yelled, ‘Allahu akbar!’ The bullets hit people that were praying. People who were praying lost their lives. A bullet passed right over my head.
So now there is only one gunman? Where is this other masked person?

This is a false flag.

The Mosque on their own website pointed out that the shooters reloaded their weapons, and multiple eyewitnesses spoke of two or perhaps three shooters.

These same eyewitnesses report that some of the 90 men tried to attack the shooters while they were reloading, but this small and physical weak chess player who had never before raised his voice in anger managed to fight off men with 90:1 odds against him.

Then, after this V for vendetta style super-hero accomplishes all this, he pulls over and calls 911 and says he “feels bad” and turns himself in????

Who would believe such a completely nutty story?

I just want to hear the truth! I want to hear our so called “media” expose the truth about Islam. All we ever hear in the news is how peaceful of a religion Islam is. It’s all a bunch of BS! I want to hear the media talk about the violent verses in the Quran, which talk about killing Christians, Jews and Infidels. I want to hear about the stories in Sirah in which Mohamed’s army conquered a town of around 800 people…and while Mohamed watched the men getting beheaded with his wife Aisha, his soldiers were raping the women in the surrounding tents. I want to hear Moderate Muslims defend their horrible religion! I’m so sick and tired of the media trying to convince me that Islam is good when it is NOT!

This is what Canada is becoming……..

See media suppression in action:

Quote -

BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s media regulator has revised its code of conduct on reporting whether crime suspects belong to an ethnic or religious minority after complaints the previous guidance was unclear.

The German Press Council – a voluntary, industry-run body – says information about a person’s ethnicity shouldn’t be published “unless there is a justified public interest in doing so.”

- When it comes to the mainstream fake news media, nobody quite compares to the CBC. They’ve taken producing Liberal propaganda & passing it off as news to a whole new level. The CBC needs to be defunded.

- So Canada’s budget is going to be based on feelings? It looks like they want to spend us into a recession so they can justify spending us out of it (or spending us into a depression.)

- As universities have become indoctrination centers the quality of education has fallen. Parents need to be demanding more.

Fox News has been reporting on the brutal rape of a 14 year old schoolgirl by two Latino illegal alien teenagers at a school in Rockville, Maryland.
NBC,ABC, and CBS devoted zero minutes to the story despite the fact that it was an issue at the daily White House Briefing.
They are referred to as mainstream media but they choose to ignore mainstream stories that don’t fit their socialist liberal agenda. You only hear what they choose to tell you , censored by editors so you can only form the opinions that they want you to form.
Journalists are just propagandists.

Any time the news media does not say the name of an adult criminal, it is a red flag.

Elton Braun, you are soooo right.
Trudeau, M103, and the alt-left is determined to divide us. “Diversity is Strength” is an oxymoron. A strong society is an integrated society.
A society should be based on a set of morals and rights that all citizens and potential newcomers look to embrace. That is REAL strength, and something worth fighting for. Trudeau is turning Canada into a post-national state lacking values, pride, and not worth defending.
Trudeau is a traitor destroying our country from within by provoking hatred amongst neighbours.

Aman Dahuginkiss do not get so mad at Ezra , it is not his fault you are still a virgin.

And you do not have to watch CBC to keep track of their stories, just go to their site and you can find this out in a minute or two. I know that is pretty deep for an anti semite like you to think.
commented 2017-03-22 01:26:20 -0400
I watched the CBC news today for the first time in a very long while. One item was about a bunch of Canadian universities who were all twisted in knots because although they all claimed to promote diversity they were finding it continually harder to identify who was in a minority and therefore weren’t sure if they actually were promoting diversity. How insane is that? Why is the left so obsessed with skin colour and separating out minorities? By the end of the seventies already nobody cared less about someone’s ethnic background. Today the left promotes more racism then ever. You’d think not being able to pick out a person from a minority would be considered a good thing. But no. If your not an identifiable minority your not a victim and if your not a victim your nobody.

Call me stupid but I would prefer our government manage the vast amount of taxes we pay with our hard work to provide clean drinking water to our first nations instead of imposing a carbon tax to appear environmental and import so called refugees from non-warzones to appear compassionate. Rather than regulate and tax to implement policies that make us appear like the good guy, I would rather act in an effective way to help our own.

Amanda hug n kiss….the leftist regressive fucktard coward that hides behind a fake is back from the psych ward. This clown says " conservative people watch the cbc because they are obsessed with everything they hate". Well…..if that is not hypocrisy at its finest, because here you are you waste of breathing air, posting on this site that you obsessively mock. I’m with mongrel, you have to get off the drugs and booze, seek help, although it may already be to late.

I like the information on the lying press and how they attempt to misinform. I think it would be great if there was a section devoted to compendiums all of the mis-information or something to show what we get for a 1.4 billion dollars per year.

Aman said, “How does Ezra know what’s going on at the CBC? I guess he watches it.”

Yes, he does. He has stated clearly several times throughout since he started The Rebel that he watches the CBC “so we don’t have to if we do not want to”.
commented 2017-03-21 22:47:27 -0400
How do you even do that? I have a well to-do friend that drags me to some of the swankiest places in Toronto like the Station House, and even there you’d only spend $100 each. But the worst of it is that his and Wynn’s policies are forcing ppl into poverty while they think nothing of living high off the hog. How bloody socialist. Venezuela here we come!!

I think conservatives and Christians make the mistake of thinking this leftist nonsense would fizzle out on it’s own. Well, we know that’s wrong don’t we? Billy is right. It’s going to be a long hard slog, but we gotta do it. But the needle can be moved. In Holland, Geert lost, but he’s forced the other parties to start mimicking him. And Ezra may not realize it, but he’s moved the needle too, as our msm would be reporting even LESS if it weren’t for TheRebel.

Really!? – Maybe if you went a took a look in the mirror – you’d be seeing the biggest loser around here this evening. You stink Libtard all over the place here! – pretty much all of us on this site have extremely sharp & accurate “bull-shit Meters”. Your childish example of the Lieberal medias weather forecast as fake news example is – well – like an autistic child’s rationality! Go away CBC troll. We do not allow anti-Semites for to cause any influence on us – so save your keyboard. Go preach your message at that mosque near you.

If it’s an attack on a mosque, it must be racist & all racists are white according to the CBC as per their style of reporting. The CBC is the one being racist in such cases because often times they are assuming without the facts as in that assault by a Muslim on another visible Muslim wearing a hijab in the grocery store, always quick to judgement if they think it’s an attack on Muslims & dead quiet when they find out it’s not.
CTV just as bad, but we don’t fund them like those CBC leeches who should have been defended years ago. Everything’s gone to hell since Trudeau was elected.

Has it occurred to anyone that the reason Bill Morneau is speaking to children about his budget, is that they are likely the only ones left in this country that might actually believe what he is saying? Has Mr. Morneau explained to the children how shipping Billions of Canadian tax dollars overseas is creating prosperity in Canada? I am waiting with great anticipation to see how that works, oh I want to believe so much that “Sunny Ways” will feed my child and pay my rent… I’m still waiting.
