Caught on tape: NDP “media complex” attempt to “gaslight” Kenney in media scrum

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Reporters or revisionist historians? If you live in Alberta, there's really no difference. In 2012 the late, great Andrew Breitbart said, “the media class is the wall that we have to climb over in order for our voices to be heard” and those words have never been truer.


Last weekend at our very successful Rebel Live event in Calgary, I said that to get rid of the socialist new democrat government, we’d first have to overcome the mainstream media in Alberta.

As I noted, the media is the public relations and research arm of the New Democratic Party, and it only took them about four days to prove me correct.

I just received a transcript of a media scrum between United Conservative Party leader Jason Kenney and some reporters that took place on Wednesday in Edmonton.

It begins with reporters asking questions about remarks made by a UCP member, lawyer John Carpay. The media rushed to throw up a short excerpt from Carpay’s full 20 minute speech at our Rebel Live event (thanks for watching mainstream media!) with comments about free speech and the LGBTQ rainbow flag that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

You can watch the full speech for context and make up your own mind.

Carpay quickly issued a clarification and that should have been the end of it, but the media pressed on trying to make the whole UCP responsible for what one member said, a bizarre standard that seems to only apply to conservatives.

But suddenly, what should have been a scrum, turned into mainstream media reporters trying to rewrite history and “memory hole” some known facts, Ministry of Truth style.

They insisted, despite video evidence to the contrary, that when Alberta's Deputy Premier and Health Minister Sarah Hoffman accused conservative politicians of hanging around with sewer rats, she only meant me and my Rebel colleagues.

Does that make a government minister dehumanizing me in the legislature any better?

Watch as I tell you who those two reporters were since none of the media who witnessed it will, and show you exactly what sort of revisionist gaslighting these two tried to pass off as unbiased press conference questions.

This incident should be a wake-up call for conservative politicians who think they've entered into a peace treaty with the mainstream media.

It's not a peace treaty. It's a disarmament pact where only conservatives lay down their weapons. And no amount of disavowing their political allies will spare conservative politicians from the name calling and lies that are passed off as unbiased journalism.

If the media's pathetic performance at the Conservative convention in Halifax didn't convince Scheer and Kenney, maybe this latest Alberta press gallery stunt will.

That last few minutes there, where you take down Conservatives for being the media’s bitches (and giving implicit permission to treat the Rebel as the whipping boy); it’s like you’ve read my mind and said what I’ve bitched about out loud at the car’s radio many, many times, word for word! I really like your style, it’s one of the best plain-English, almost stark right wing deliveries I’ve ever seen. I like also that, despite your bulldog reputation you’ve stayed relatively scandal free, personally. Is there any way you could reach out to Kenney, or Scheer, as SGR, without the Rebel flashing on the mike? Maybe then they’d talk to you, and you could get them to answer these questions on camera. You’ve established yourself as a leading conservative voice, IMO, and you’ve got an audience that would likely grow some if you broke that barrier. Not slamming Ezra here, and I know you’ve said pretty much the same things about Kenney and Scheer as he has, but you’re a little less … abrasive, let’s say, than him and easier to take. But, who am I kidding? Those two, especially, are likely scared shitless of being interviewed by you!

There was more freedom of thought and diversity of opinion in Pravda than there is on the CBC. And Pravda was also more critical of the Soviet government than CBC is to the globalist elite swine liberals and their feckless cuckold soy boy leader Mohammad “Zoolander” Trudeau.
CBC is the epitome of fake news. And their constant daily never ending anti-white racist agenda is truly nauseating.

CBC = comments disabled. Your opinion is not allowed. And stop yelling at the TV/computer screen. Shut that dog up too.
Dear CBC sorry its just every time his picture, turdo comes on the dog thinks its an intruder here to steal his food and rob the place. Sadly I start yelling too because the dog is right,

Yeah, I think Kweer Kenney is another infiltrator in the ranks. Too bad conservatives are so bad at spotting them.

Jason Kenney is not just a homosexual; he is a militant homosexualist, and a capo in Canada’s gay mafia. Premier Kenney will stack Alberta’s civil service with homosexuals. Kenney SUPPORTS a carbon tax and has said so repeatedly. Federal Minister Kenney dramatically increased government expenditures and civil service positions. Sheila deliberately conceals these facts from Rebel loyalists. The Gunn Show is another brick in the media wall one must climb over to get the truth out.

AL PETERSON:
I didn’t realize the CBC was even capable of making such laughable comedy…
As you may know, Marxists, communists, socialists, fascists and other assorted totalitarian globalists aren’t known for their sense of humour…a lot like their brethren, Islamic jihadis, who have banned humour…I think there’s even a fatwa on humour.
Like Islam,Communism and Globalism, the MSM, or the Fake News, or the Media Party are THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!

You might not be old enough to remember but I used to listen to “The rest of the story “ with Paul Harvey on CHED in the 80s. That’s when I realized the media lies, by omission. Thanks be to God now that we can expose the rest of the story. God bless Paul Harvey

More LAFFS from the CBC Journalistic Standards:
“Politics
Election Coverage
Canadians expect us to provide a wide range of information and context so that they can make decisions during election and referendum campaigns.

We ensure that the facts and analysis we present on issues, candidates and parties are timely, accurate, fair and balanced over the course of the campaign.

We give all candidates, parties and issues equitable treatment. This does not necessarily mean equal broadcast time."

Ya gotta wipe the tears from your eyes. Who writes this stuff? For more of this laff riot go to:

How true it is about the media. Whoever controls it controls the masses. We might have to go back to using shortwave and CB radios to get the truth out someday. Pirates will have to set up rolling radio stations to spread the news which the media party stifles.

When Canada returns to normal (I’m Dreaming of a Blue Christmas) and a Right Wing Government is in power again, perhaps they will make a law that states; Any media outlet that prints or expresses a political view, must also print the opinions of all political parties, at the same time.
We need to get rid of all these Marxist low life spin doctors that infest the media.

The Carpay comparison was absolutely correct. No one since Hitler, Stalin and Mao have jackbooted on free speech, attacked Christians or anyone else, who doesn’t conform to the heresy of their gender insanity and filth merchant perversions. As far as Kenny goes, the media says jump, and Kenny says how high.
