Pathetic: CBC treats anti-oil comedian's diploma-ripping stunt as "news"

Brian LilleyArchive

Last week I told you about Scott Vrooman, who as a "spokesman" for the anti-oil group that was picketing 24 Sussex, treated his interview with me like a bad comedy routine.

Later that day, he videotaped himself ripping up his degree from Dalhousie because they refused to divest from oil and gas stocks.

Now the CBC is promoting this as serious "news."

This is the same $1 billion a year state broadcaster that didn't broadcast federal election debates.

And speaking of protests, when The Rebel led a boycott of Tim Horton's to protest their decision to drop Enbridge ads, the CBC ignored it.

But Scott Vrooman's little stunt? That's national news.


The CBC: Irrelevant, arrogant, biased. It’s time to pull the plug!

READ Brian Lilley's book CBC Exposed -- it's been called "the political book of the year.”

What a horrible analogy! Must be nice to have all that pride while ripping up a certificate of accomplishments. Obviously it wasn’t a masters in debating or of being able to form a logical thought. I almost feel sorry for these people but then again why would I feel sorry for them when all they do and are are shit disturbers. They are going to bring the end of all that is good and prosperous.
This person had an opportunity to express themselves and that is what he came up with, WOW!
Way to call him out Brian!

Don Cloud actually they were growing viewers and were not given a fair shot. And just because someone appears does not make them supported by the media they appear on.

Drew … Magnotta???? we’re talking about a comedian not a crazed killer. WTF … also once the SNN was on air, there was no need to attack them. They were doing quite fine alienating viewers all on their own. It’s a good thing Ezra knew enough to get off that sinking ship.

The most cruel thing you can do to an EJW is give them what they say they want. Let’s hope Dalhousie expunges all records of this guy ever being a student there just in case he doesn’t actually remove it from his résumé and then an employer does a fraud check. And gets his credit-card company to disallow fossil-fuel purchases… and purchases of all goods and services that use fossil fuels directly or indirectly.

Yea, he made it on SNN & The Rebel by being dishonest in his intentions and then changing his tone once he was on air. Brian Lilley was thinking he was getting someone who represented the protesters so he could have an intelligent debate on the issue but instead he got a sarcastic idiot who had no intention of discussing the issue. As far as his rant about the demise of the SNN he typically called everyone at the network racist bigots. That’s the problem with most of the extreme lefties, they think their views are gospel, don’t want to hear any opposing views and when push comes to shove they throw out the racist card.

Andrew the left and CBC were attacking Sun news long before it was on the air , why should they get treated any better?
commented 2015-11-12 19:03:21 -0500
I think he actually had a small chance to be relevant, in a minor way. Then: this. It’s a good thing, because now the world knows just how stupid he really is. His only supporters from now on will be the same idiots who support Neil Young, Saint Suzuki, Darryl Hannah, etc. and that group’s actually pretty small. What was the NDP/Green vote this time around? So, he just lumped himself, permanently, into that group. James Cameron, that Harperman moron, Theresa Sokyrka, and now this goof. The rest of Canadian society can safely wish him good riddance, see you when you’re vaguely important again (never)!

This must be more of the lefties REAL NEWS LMAO.

Vrooman made onto SNN and … he made it onto the Rebel …
commented 2015-11-12 17:20:25 -0500
This fool Vrooman is irrelevant. He is supposed to be a comedian but I have never heard of him on the comedy circuit. Probably because he is just not funny and is an unemployed jerk who is mad at the world and can’t think of anything else to do other than join others of the same ilk. If his diplomas were worth anything he would be working somewhere contributing to society instead of spending all his time protesting and complaining.

Mancave Wing – yes, I think it best to stick with the Charmin! :-)
commented 2015-11-12 16:38:02 -0500
Michael. I’m wondering that too. The best thing about this site is it gives the folks, whose leader perished on Oct 19, a place to rant for the next 4 years. When Harper had a majority there was nothing the left could do except rant. The shoe is now on the other foot. Perhaps it’ll change again in 2020.

Deborah G., that bio toilet paper is hard on the ole bottom, I think I will just stick with the Charmine… Lol. ;-)

Mancave Wing – If he is going to be environmentally correct, then I would think it would have to be biodegradable! :-)

Don – the only fool that I see in this club is you! Do you really think that you are so much smarter and better than everyone else? You need to take water pills so that your head returns to the proper size.

Deborah G., would “Scotty little softie” be bio-degradable?

Vincent Ziegler commented –
“This enviro comedian does a toilet comedy routine also. I think he bills himself out a Scotty “Ass Wipe” Vrooman.”

Or what about “Scotty’s little softie?” That name should get him a few laughs!

Oil will not make the future uninhabitable. The hundreds and thousands of King Trudeau’s Muslim bed mates, that he intends to import, is what will make the future inhabitable. He is stealing our grand chilldren’s future. He needs to be stopped, NOW. Trudeau, you and your CBC play mates are the products of a sewage farm.

What are you talking about?

DON CLOUD, ANDREW STEPHENSON, , MICHAEL MANN, KELLY WEBER, have you joined your pal, comrade Scott Vrooman, and signed on to socialist Naomi Klein’s The Leap Manifesto yet? Once again, as the saying goes, birds of a feather flock together !

This enviro comedian does a toilet comedy routine also. I think he bills himself out a Scotty “Ass Wipe” Vrooman.

Don, no pain here! I guess you must be a big fan of this " foolish site". It is okay to admit you like the site and the attention you get on here.

BTW. I love this fools club. Someone needs to hold the light …

That’s funny when you consider what passes for “news” on here!
