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…

CANADIAN MONGREL: Where did you get you’re news from before there was Breitbart, rebel media, dailystormer (etc)? Did you get it from the KKK website? Ezra is strictly a political commentator. He is not a news anchor. Rebel Media does not have news anchors. It’s all political commentators. News normally has local crime stories, and other news of public interest as well as weather and sports updates. But I guess it’s all fake news. The Rebel has a news section but it’s all geared toward reinforcing a politicized agenda.

I saw the guy’s name once, in the on line London Free Press. Then it was gone for good. Never made it to the paper version.

Aman,

You are again letting your drugs addle your thoughts.

Mr. Levant is in the news business as an owner/operator. This means he needs to monitor competitors, so yes he will watch the CBC.

You really need to kick your addiction.

How does Ezra know what’s going on at the CBC? I guess he watches it. I wonder if he likes Little Mosque On The Prarie?

I’m certain that a CTV News website featured a video clip interview with a London police officer who additionally stated that the suspect was a Muslim, but that clip seems to have since disappeared. Later on CTV television news the suspect was simply described as a 24 year old male which nicely fuelled the false inference that the incident was another example of Islamaphobic violence.
This was re-enforced in the news segment that immediately followed of a report from Winnipeg where M-103 supporters met up with anti M-103 folks who were deliberately portrayed as menacing and thuggish looking.
The propaganda continued straight out of the Fake News playbook into the next day when viewers were treated to a heartwarming, feel-good, warm and fuzzy segment showing “refugees” having a gay old time enjoying a few fun-filled ends on ice as they learned about curling.
I’m trying hard to personally confine the issues I have to the 7th century death cult, rather than with Muslims themselves (or curling) but the insidious behaviour of our own mainstream media is enough to make me puke.

So every perpetrator of a crime is going to be named John or Jane Doe to sanitize and hide the fact that it was a Muslim that committed the offense. Or they just don’t report anything at all, nothing to see here.
The CBC has become a dangerous propaganda entity and really needs to be dismantled .

The CBC not reporting the final facts of the London mosque story pretty much goes hand in hand with the RCMP deciding they will no longer report weekly stats about illegal border crossings, as reported by Ms. Goldy. The London mosque incident fit the narrative on Sunday, two days before the M103 vote, but not Monday with the new facts so the CBC did not report those new facts. Illegal border crossings are proving to be problematic and the citizens are realizing that fact, so the RCMP white shirts choose to not report the facts. The R.C.B.C.M.P. Is beholden to its master.

I predict the budget will include mo’ money towards refugee settlement and some other “feel good” schemes.
And if your against the budget, then you’re a bigoted racist!
