Tonight I'll show you a clip from Trudeau’s CBC News. In it, David Cochrane compares Omar Khadr, the convicted murderer and war criminal, to teenagers who spray painted some vandalism, or maybe smoked a joint.
No pushback from the CBC host, of course.
Now, I happen to believe that David Cochrane believes this. It really is the uniform point of view in the media. But you never know — the CBC these days is really just a megaphone for whatever the Liberal Party of Canada says.
And we know that Justin Trudeau is more than a casual supporter of Omar Khadr:
Without any legal precedent, he gave Khadr a $10.5 million cheque. And a public apology. And he gave him the cheque in a manner designed to evade a lawsuit by the widow of the man Khadr killed, who is suing Khadr. Trudeau made sure the money couldn’t be taken by her.
Her name is Tabitha Speer, by the way. Her murdered husband is Christopher Speer. Her fatherless kids are Taryn and Tanner Speer. I just want to tell you that, because the mainstream media never does. Because in their narrative, Khadr is the victim.
The CBC prefers to talk about how murdering someone is just something that teenagers do, if their parents are inattentive.
At Guantanamo Bay, Omar Khadr would recall that it was the best day of his life; when he was down in the dumps, he said, he would think about murdering Sergeant Speer, and it would life his spirits.
That’s who the CBC and Trudeau love.
As you may know, I wrote a book a few years back, called The Enemy Within — Terror, Lies and the Whitewashing of Omar Khadr. I’ve talked to the widow of the man he murdered; I spoke with members of the prosecution team who obtained a conviction and 40-year prison sentence against Khadr for war crimes — only to have Barack Obama cut a deal to spring him from prison and send him to Canada.
And I relied not just on witnesses and experts, but on Khadr’s own statements.
Khadr voluntarily signed his confession. We know this, because Khadr’s passionate lawyers agreed to it. Khadr had many lawyers – some of them paid for by the U.S. Pentagon, some of them Canadian volunteers, motivated by a political hatred for the U.S. war on terror and Guantanamo Bay. I mention this last point to demonstrate that Khadr’s lawyers who approved his signing the confession were not patsies of the U.S. government. There’s no way they would permit their client to sign a document under duress.
Here’s are some excerpts from his confession:
“...he was told about a $1,500 reward placed on each American killed. Omar Khadr indicated that when he heard about the reward, he wanted to kill a lot of Americans to get lots of money.”
"At the time that Khadr threw the grenade that killed Speer and injured another soldier, Khadr was not under the impression that U.S. soldiers were preparing to charge his position, attack or engage him. Rather, Khadr thought that the soldiers entering the compound were looking for wounded or dead and that the firefight was over.”
And then Khadr tossed the grenade.
That’s not what soldiers do. That’s what murderers do. That’s what terrorists do. And that’s what Khadr confessed to doing, with the approval of his anti-American lawyers.
When this occurred, Omar Khadr was a few weeks shy of sixteen years old – the age that the Canadian Forces recruit soldiers, by the way. And much older than the 14 years old that the U.N. definition of a child soldier expires.
Omar Khadr is morally equivalent to Paul Bernardo. Except it’s actually worse in some ways — Bernardo is a sick, depraved man. So is Khadr; but Khadr is motivated not by the cruelty itself, but by the cruelty in service of his form of Islam. So he willfully, thoughtfully commits terrorism.
It’s not a sickness or a mental illness or an accident or a perversion. It’s his political religious choice.
That he has never repudiated. And he’s about to get on a jet to visit his pro-terrorist sister in Saudi Arabia.
But that's not what you'll hear on Canada's state broadcaster.
On anything important, you just can’t trust the mainstream media...
NEXT: You may have heard about the "social credit" system in China, where each citizen's "anti-social" behavior online and off is scored by the government.
Allum Bokhari, senior technology correspondent at Breitbart News, tells me we "shouldn't kid ourselves" into thinking that Google and other Silicon Valley tech giants aren't behind a similar totalitarian set-up here in the west.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
