My former Rebel colleague, independent conservative journalist Faith Goldy, was attacked by Antifa thugs at the Quebec-U.S. border.
It happened at Roxham Road, an area that’s a well known point of entry for migrants fleeing possible deportation from the U.S., by illegally entering Canada.
An anti-illegal immigration protest was scheduled but the violent left-wing Antifa also showed up to clash with the protesters.
Riot police were there, along with journalists and camera crews from every mainstream media outlet in the country, and so was Faith.
Everyone was there to cover the same story but only one person was attacked. Faith was kicked, assaulted and spat upon by masked Antifa lunatics and she caught it all on video.
So did the mainstream media, but instead of coming to her aid or helping bring the people who assaulted her to justice, and instead of reporting the images of the crime against her, the journalists did nothing.
Some did worse than nothing, actively suppressing the truth of the violence or ridiculing Faith.
Watch as I show you what happened and how the media and the Left are treating the very serious attack.
It’s similar to what happened to me when I was punched by a male feminist named Dion Bews at the Edmonton Women’s March last year.
Faith can be controversial, however in a free and civilized society, saying controversial things must never be met with violence.
Free speech isn’t free if some masked thug can kick you in front of the cops because you once said something he didn’t want to hear. But that hasn’t stopped a mob of internet truthers from insisting that Faith had it coming.
If left-wing female journalists were being routinely assaulted at work, women's groups, journalist organizations and the government would be standing up for them and calling for an end to the threats and the violence.
But for me and Faith and other conservative journalists who are assaulted in the course of our jobs, we can't even get conservative politicians to take the principled stance that we deserve to be safe too.
And that silence from everyone -left and right- makes our jobs more dangerous.
