The mainstream media promotes a fake news hoax about Andrew Scheer — and refuses to apologize when caught

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

A video was posted yesterday at the liberal Toronto blog called Blog TO, and it came to my attention because my former colleague from the Sun News Network, David Akin, tweeted it.

Tonight I'll show you the video. Here's how Blog TO described it:

Disturbing video footage of a young woman [named Talia Davidson] hurling racist remarks, [holding a "VOTE ANDREW SCHEER" sign] and spitting at a Toronto resident is circulating like wildfire online today, inspiring shock and outrage across the board.

Farhan Rana, who works across the street from Toronto City Hall, says that he was taking a walk (...) when he was confronted by someone he didn't know.

"Suddenly, a small woman yelled in my ear to 'get out of my country' along with other well wishes," he wrote in an Instagram story. "I walked past her and ignored her remarks."

Here’s what I thought immediately:

If this were a Hollywood script, a producer would say, too obvious; It needs to be more nuanced.

No-one who wanted to promote Andrew Scheer would really do what this woman did. 

It reminded me of the Hijab Hoax girl in Toronto, which we reported on extensively. This is just as fake as the Jussie Smollett hoax.

It is exactly what it looks like — a leftist’s idea of what conservatives think and say.

And the media who reported it knows so little about conservatives and what we really think, that they ran with it.

As I say, I saw this via David Akin. He has since deleted this tweet, but here’s a snapshot:

"Scheer’s opponents will shrug and say, well, of course. That’s unfair but that’s politics. In the meantime, Scheer would do well to go out of his way to denounce this kind of hatred. And to do that quickly.”

So David Akin was not only giving great publicity to this hoax; and putting zero effort into scrutinizing it, he was also giving a prescription to Scheer — you have to react to this, or you’ll own it.

That video was retweeted and republished uncritically countless times, including by Media Party journalists who couldn’t be bothered to even Google a thing.

How hard is it to type Talia Davidson into Google? I did. I found her on Facebook, partying at a hard left-wing activist newspaper in Toronto called Now Magazine.

And she’s not anti-immigrant. She loves immigrants, all her friends are immigrants, she was involved in a Venezuelan restaurant in the city with other immigration activists.

According to this social media page dug up by the Post Millennial, Davidson was an anarcho-syndicalist, a Palestinian activist and an immigration booster — the exact opposite of who she pretended to be on camera.

The weirdest thing was, the website that put this online, Blog TO, did a profile on Davidson just last month. Didn’t they recognize her?

Talia Davidson was charged with assaulting police. Maybe she just snapped, or maybe that’s just me being kind to her, trying to find a less odious explanation.

So even if Davidson is a hoaxer; or even if she’s mad —she’s succeeded —because the fake news media took the story and ran with it.

The election campaign isn’t in full swing —that won’t happen till after Labour Day.

But get ready for a tsunami of fake news just like this.

And it will come from the fanciest of Media Party reporters —the very same people who say you should trust them and only them, not independent media like us.

NEXT: Gordon Chang joins me to talk about the escalating political violence in Hong Kong.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

It happened it was on video and it was perpetrated by a liberal, ndp or greenie. "

Shall we say that you have no idea what her political beliefs are, then? Are we playing the “name a party” game? Perhaps she’s also one of the liberals that the PPC has purportedly attracted. Of course, Scheer is also a closet liberal according to you, so maybe she’s a CPC. All we need now is confirmation that she’s a separatist and we’ll have all six.

Irregardless, she seems to have found a sore spot for the Right. Does Scheer support what she said, or disavow it?

Jumping the gun here, but just read a report abut finding Turdo guilty of violations in SNC scandal. News report calls charges “laughable “. That’s unbiased reporting for you! It wax not an editorial.

Rebel & Ezra, thanks for once again exposing the deceit that constantly comes from the left, in waves……the more it is exposed, the more our society will come to understand who the left really is and once they understand what the left really is, they can discover, though it will takes some time shaking off false slanderous stereotypes that are part of those waves, who conservatives really are!
commented 2019-08-14 13:35:50 -0400
Don’t forget the so-called “passerby” and “victim” of the attack, whose convenient brown appearance on the scene instigated this little staged play. His name is Farhan Rana and he used to work for a company called Morneau Shepell owned by one Bill Morneau, Liberal finance minister. What a coinky-dink!

And Miss Vote Scheer has now been sent to CAMH, the destination of all Protected Liberal enablers. Next will be Turdeau writing her a 10.5 mil cheque because her human rights were violated. As always with leftist terrorists, she’ll be declared NCR and a “lone wolf” and she’ll wander off while CAMH denies knowing her whereabouts.

" He will guarantee Justin another majority if he doesn’t re-iterate that singular promise."
I do agree with that Billy Howard.
But no one took the base away from Scheer, He chased us out and threw us under the bus, and doubles down on the insult to his base daily.

It is fraud posing as something she isn’t, misrepresenting people and attempting to defame them. Is the mental instability also a ruse to get out of the more serious charges she deserves? She will likely only be charged with mischief if that. She no more supports the CPC than her socialist masters do. She is a liar and a fraud and only a sap or a bottom feeder believes otherwise. I would like to see some more digging to find out the person or persons who put her up to this and what connections they have and to what party on the left they might be connected to. Someone will pay for this. It is an unacceptable tactic.
One thing for sure, she is a disgusting, lying fraud.

By the way, what’s “fake” about reporting about a woman spewing racist slogans while holding a “vote Scheer” sign? It happened. It’s on video.

Well, if that’s not proof you have to be insane to support the conservatives, I don’t know what is.
commented 2019-08-14 10:36:47 -0400
I don’t know what is more appalling, the fact that the Liberals are so desperate to ‘win’, that they’d even contemplate doing something as stupid as this hoax…and that it would fool anyone – or the fact that the Fake News (establishment media) went along and are now silent after being outed for this hoax!
Trudeau’s ‘orders’ to the Media Party and the social networks are being carried out, and two months from one of the most important federal elections ever, Liberal election fraud is rampant…
I received another 30 day suspension on Facebook yesterday – I have been posting many anti-Trudeau pieces on my FB News Feed…which by the way Facebook now makes somewhere between difficult to impossible to download and watch…I was shut down this time for posting a comment: “The only good commie is a dead commie”
Looks like Facebook may pull a ‘Marine Le Pen’…and shut down many thousands of anti-Trudeau/pro-Conservative/pro-PPC sites anytime now – or what ever other underhanded and criminal means these traitors will use to subvert the election!
The Liberals and fiends are actively destroying Canada – everyone is seeing it…and no one is doing anything about it…
…well it’s been nice knowin’ ya Canada.

Liza: I assume during the debates, Scheer, or one of the leaders, or a Trudeau-media shill, will mention his promise to pull Canada out of the UNGCM. He will guarantee Justin another majority if he doesn’t re-iterate that singular promise.
The “appeasement” of the left is old school politics while Justin, to his credit, is standing firm on all things far-left. Rather than appeasing the right, Trudeau is attacking any CPC voter as “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it” (from the Hillary playbook).
While I hope Scheer pulls out a Trump-like win, the fact that we don’t have a FoxNews north to balance out the Trudeau-shilling MSM means another JT majority. I have little confidence in Canadians looking at alt-media for balanced news coverage. The sheeple will re-elect Trudeau and Canada will fall further and deeper into an oblivion that we may never be able to recover from.
PPC will take the blue base away from Scheer if he doesn’t copy Trudeau’s style and support conservative values and attack his far-left narratives with Trump-like gusto. But alas, the all-powerful Media Party will demonize him for it if he does.
TBH, my money is on Trudeau winning again, and again, and again, and as long as the Media Party supports him and Canadians keep their blinders on.

I notice Lefty has a bad left leg, he must have been putting too much strain on it.

The Boy Blunder arrives at Toronto City Hall yesterday to engage in some SOBER discussions with John Lefty yesterday on what to do about these nasty lawful firearms owners after his much deserved surfin’ safari to the left coast on High-as-a-Kite One.

Well Billy I watched that vid when it came out and at the time i thought it odd, and strained, he says the words, because Michelle makes him repeat them. She walks him through that interview like a kid who doesn’t want to have to, but is told he needs to. He has not said he would get us out of the UN migration Compact again since that vid and has nothing on his platform indicating it is even on his to do list. I’m not buying that he will address that most pressing problem to the satisfaction of most Canadians and if he doesn’t get out of the compact he won’t be cutting immigration. Regarding the hope that he would reduce numbers down the road you said, “That kind of language is meant to appease the left while not exactly denying the traditional conservative stance on immigration.” That seems to be a recurring tactic for Scheer. Its just that kind of appeasement authentic or not that sent people over to Max.
commented 2019-08-14 01:22:50 -0400
Liza Rosie: Scheer’s comments like: “its not about numbers, its about how will we pay for and keep up with the incoming”, opens up the possibility that he may have to lower the numbers after the election due to lack of taxpayer funding, while not breaking a promise. That kind of language is meant to appease the left while not exactly denying the traditional conservative stance on immigration.
As for pulling out of the UNGCM, his promise is clear (see 1:30 of this video)

Jan G. asked, But did the msm explain who she really is and what she was really doing? Or is the media now trying to say she’s a perfect example of a conservative because conservatives have mental problems?"
Jan, they showed this woman with a sign that could be read half a block away," VOTE ANDREW SCHEER".
Next they followed her (with the sign being the main object that viewers would focus on) walk up to a dark guy, spit on him and tell him to get out of her country.
This dark guy probably had one of the best personalities that Toronto has ever had; you had to like him and dislike the woman (Scheers fan) for being racist and violent.
(Ezra doesn’t think the Dark guy was in on it, I would bet he was part of it.)
Then Global ended by telling us about the Mental assessment.
Jan, here is your long awaited answer.
I think Talia hit a Home Run, in that all the viewers will remember is a crazy woman that votes for Scheer being a Violent Racist.

CTV got a hold of Scheer and he said that he didn’t know that woman, but you could tell that he was nervous and stuttered a little, afraid that the MSM might call him a racist. Thump would have said, " The Fake News Media staged this whole Operation and the Interviewer would be apologizing, not Trump.

I don’t think it’s a matter of trusting China, folks.
I think it’s a matter of trusting Hong Kong.

- So now taking taxpayer bribes to push Liberal propaganda isn’t enough – they’re manufacturing the propaganda now.

- China cannot be trusted. Taiwan is no doubt taking note of what’s going on in Hong Kong. Give up any sovereignty to China today & you’ll be giving up lives tomorrow. If China

Talia is being assessed for mental health issues. Ok well, that’s one down, now how about the rest of the left wing?

Ezra is 100% right when he says it’s a leftists stereotypical view of a conservative. That’s the ‘success’ of the left wing media. I’ve run into it many times around the internet.
commented 2019-08-13 22:32:12 -0400
That wasn’t “On the nose”, Ezra. That “was out of Left field”.
Hong Kong over China…
That was an amazing interview with the amazing Gordon Chang.
There is too much investment going on in Hong Kong to crash the Chinese economy.
China will flinch and Hong Kong will take out communism in the far East. It will take a while, but it will happen.
What that means for the world or the investment security of Hong Kong, nobody knows.
Hopefully we won’t experience a market crash anytime soon.
Hong Kong is nice. Hate to see it turn to rubble because Beijing has an open capitalist market.
commented 2019-08-13 22:26:45 -0400
The Chinese government has/had their police dress as protesters and mingle with the protesters to provoke aggression and anger with those protesting. Trying to get them to fight the official police.
Now, doesn’t that just sound like Trudeau’s friend Talia Davidson?
God protect the brave people fighting against communism.

RON JOSEPH: But did the msm explain who she really is and what she was really doing? Or is the media now trying to say she’s a perfect example of a conservative because conservatives have mental problems?

I think China sent over their people to Hong Kong to stir up the people and turn the crowds violent.A great excuse to enter Hong Kong and take over.

Also what was wrong ,there were no people walking by. In toronto on a street or catwalk and absolutely barren of people? Not a chance.

Latest on TALIA DAVIDSON——Global 6 pm News—-It took 5 officers to bring Talia in front of the Judge. She spit on them. The Judge is having her assessed for Mental Problems.
Her father has told the press that she has deep mental problems.

WOW, I have always thought of David Akin the same way as a 10 year old Alter Boy, Crystal Clean. Even at Sun News he rarely showed any mean emotion.
Could Trudeau’s Media Bribe Pot have something to do with Akin’s change of personality?
commented 2019-08-13 21:37:07 -0400
Billy Howard, could you post something to corroborate that?
He doesn’t plan on getting out of the Paris Climate Accord which is a UN directive, and the most promising thing I ever heard him say about the UN Migration Compact was that he was going to try to ‘make amendments’ to see if he could do something to protect our sovereignty, but that was months ago. Any interview I have ever heard him in, when asked whether or not he would lower immigration numbers, he answers that its not about numbers, its about how will we pay for and keep up with the incoming.
Aside from the fact that I don’t think he is capable of “Set[ing] immigration levels consistent with what is in Canada’s best interests”, he starts off saying ,“Sadly, under Justin Trudeau, a record-high number of Canadians believe that immigration should be reduced.”

I can find nothing in his platform that indicates getting out of the UN Migration Compact.
