The “Nazi-era gun” that wasn’t: Hill Times smears Leitch

Brian LilleyArchive

Boy, has the Media Party got a story for you! It involves a gun, a Nazi gun, and a Conservative politician - three things they hate. The problem is, the story it was based on, was fake news. 

But that didn’t stop the Hill Times, a publication little read outside of the Parliamentary precinct, from running with a report that got tongues wagging on Tuesday with this crazy headline about Conservative Party leadership candidate Kellie Leitch.

“Leitch pictured firing what gun experts identify as Nazi-era gun in fundraising email to her Conservative Party supporters”

It turns out, this was not the gun in question.

Watch as I explain what happened and show you how spectacularly wrong the story was.

Eventually the story was corrected, and they even posted an apology but as Mark Twain is often quoted as saying, “A lie can travel halfway around the world before the truth can get its boots on.”

How many people saw Kellie Leitch, Nazi, and gun in a headline but won’t see the truth from the corrected piece?

It wasn’t a Nazi gun, not even from that era, but it fed the narrative and that's what counts when you're pushing fake news.

Sorry, Daryl, the word was supposed to be URBO-weenies but either way works. You just made my point that their desperate attacks on us work for us and backfire on them. I’m happy about that.

As well she is conveniently absent from voting on controversial bills like Bill C 16.!!
She as well looks for support from the fringe groups that Trudeau like to pander to.!!
This country desperately needs somebody who supports what the majority of mainstream Canadians want and need to have a safe and free country in which to raise their children for now and future generations to come.!!

That was supposed to read “with the Rcmp involved we know In advance who will have the last say”

Darrell… When she was speaking to firearms she said that she wanted a panel of ordinary people including farmers and ranchers and such to assist the Rcmp in firearm control… With the RCMP involved we know in advance we will have the last say.!!

Re: Kellie Leitch – I didn’t see / know that about Kellie – & I have to agree – it is wrong to allow Rcmp to make our laws – their corruption is near the levels of 3rd world governments! Seems some of them make laws up as they go.
Thnx for the notice – am going to check this all out before I vote!

The Canadian mainstream Media are the “nazi” gang . . . fellow travellers of the National Socialist German Workers Party . . . a leftist regime.
CBC Mantra . . . . “By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.” “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” “What good fortune for governments that the people do not think.”– Adolf Hitler

“Tolerance is the last sin of a dying society.” – A. P. Henry

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of chit by the clean end.”

Kevin if women won’t stand up to Islam and the dumb ass liberals than they belong in the back row.They march for the right to have the say over abortion and their bodies.But don’t stand up against Islam?Kind of hypocritical.

Andrew Scheer is a much better choice to elect for the PC leadership… He is the only candidate that wants to reverse the property rights damage that PET did when he attacked our constitution… Andrew wants to set that right..
He is also not as vague as Kelly Leach on vetting Muslim types and hold them to standard Canadian values.
I received directly from Kelly Leach an email stating how she wanted to shut down the CBC… She does not want to shut it down at all but only to modify the program in French and English… Also she wishes to leave the Rcmp with the ability to create law and enforce it concerning Canada’s firearms.!! That is just wrong on every level to have a police force with a record of overreach like the Rcmp with the ability to make and enforce law…!!
kellie Leitch says nothing about Canadian property rights that were destroyed by PET years ago and as I stated above Andrew is the only candidate that speaks to reversing what the other mad man has done to this country.

Pee-Air Trudeau gave us all the middle-finger-salute, in Salmon Arm, as he destroyed Canada.
Jihadi-Justin Trudeau is giving us the jihadist-one-fingered-salute daily, as he finishes the job the treasonous degenerate elder Trudeau started…
I see anybody giving me the jihadist-one-fingered-salute, I’ll feel obliged to snap it off and shove it up their nose!

Islam out of Canada!
Death to traitors!

I’m curious, I wonder if you’d get the same sentence for pistol-whipping a MSM scumbag liar as you would for shooting them with said pistol?
commented 2017-03-30 09:43:14 -0400
Kellie is a serious threat to overthrowing Justin as PM, therefore MSM has no choice but to smear her. (She is on my short list for sure).
Anyone in the CPC who appears to have a viable platform to defeat the Libs is a target by MSM. Trouble is the regular Joe & Jane, uninterested in politics, will turn on their tv or read their local paper & buy into the lies & crap the MSM feeds them. DEFUND THE CBC!
commented 2017-03-30 09:09:35 -0400
A gun that US intelligence used? My, my! Perhaps she will now be labeled a US spy.

When you can’t find dirt on someone, invent it and see what sticks. Shame on the Hill Times. I wonder, will Baby Doc Trudeau now reward the paper with a grant, much as he paid off… er… ah… financially supports the CBC? He is that kind of a guy – with our tax dollars – rewarding his supporters.

The bias is so blatantly obvious. One week we have front page pictures of the lit tater, with a blue sky and taken so he looks like Jesus. The next week Leitch is on the front page pointing her finger into the crowd while speaking so she looks nuts. Headlines and pics skew the reality of the story.
The mainstream media does not do it’s job. The job of the mainstream media is to tell the truth. Trouble is the truth would bring a lot of people to riot. The media hated Harper because he wouldn’t give them anything. So they stretched the truth so they could have a puppet preform for them.
This week they are spreading lies that Leitch supports the removal of Muslims from the country when all that she has ever asked for is a vetting for all new Canadians. But yet when Trudeau attends a mosque all of the female MPs are sent to the back room? Hmm, seems like a double standard to me.
All a lot of my countrymen are asking is that we be treated fairly. Nothing more. But the media lies and is biased.
So they don’t want Trump but they are asking for one.

You are right Andy!
Although I wasn’t there in Salmon Arm when PeeAir did that -a few days after that incident, I boarded the Via train @ Salmon Arm and all peoples working at Via were still “spell” bound by the arrogant gesture! Pissed off was more an accurate feeling. More than a few wished they had had their .44 mag on them when witnessing that arrogant gesture. That finger would have disappeared faster than a weasels appearance.

Excellent setting straight of the record here by people who obviously know what they are talking about…In that vein Harley McCartney – Pere Trudeau gave the infamous “middle finger salute” to protestors outside his train in Salmon Arm, B.C., not Calgary…

Raises Leitch’s standing in my mind. Too bad this BS usually backfires on these turbo-weenies.

Why is it “too” bad for turbo-weenies? I think it’s great – we all need to work at bringing them to the melting point – in their own self-destructive ways!! If we can rid ourselves of their bullshit without firing a shot- well that would show their narrative to be as self-destructive as we all know it is. They – the Bolsheviks – are the ones who without conscience would use every lethal weapon available in attempts to subdue the Majority. Bolshevik bullies never win!
We Win!! They Lose! … the fight was their idea.

Through all this – it has it’s point. Obviously Kellie is scaring the crap out of many of those slimey Libtards in Ottawa – all those SJWs would need to find new avenues to spew their crap – should Kellie become the leader of the Conservative party.
Damn it Kellie – if you are considered a Nazi – well I guess I am one too! Libtards be afraid – very afraid – because like Kellie – many of us of the Majority are fed right up with your fascist shit & your globalist views – with the Majority paying the bills for your Social Engineering policies – all the while riding the wave of unbridled lust for decadent lifestyles – so be afraid – cause if you Libtards don’t start getting some grey matter firmly in the right place – you will be seeing more than P31 or P38s (pea-shooters) – you will be looking down the barrel of a Tiger Tank! – or at the oncoming blur of a RPG! …& quite possibly the “crack” of a Hell Fire Missile. Just saying – seeing as how you Libtards are making the narrative.
Let’s Drain the Swamp! (the stink is unbearable in western Canada!)
Vote Kellie Leitch – if you cherish Liberty & Freedom!

Glenn – probably the greatest Nazi era invention which survives in wide use today was the Heidelberg automated offset printing press and BASF printer’s ink used by most news papers (including the Hills Times) today – If we were to assign the same guilt by association neurosis they do with “nazi” technology that makes them what?

@KARAN SINGH….The sailboat training yacht for RCN naval officers in Halifax named “The Pickle” was originally the “Adolf Hitler” the personal sailboat of Admiral Karl Doenitz who was in charge of the U=Boat fleet and the last official leader of the Nazi regieme. It was seized as a war prize and repurposed. So were the “tall ships” that have steel hulls and square rigging like the USS EAGLE formerly the Horst Vessle the Russian Kruzenstern the Dar Moliche and others…all the captured Baltic training fleet from the late 1800’s captured and sold as war prizes.

KODAK colour film was a patent sold as reparation fund raising from AGFA GEVART. BAYER aspirin is “nazi”…..IBM sold the first practical census machine to the Nazis. The Springfield 1903 was the standard miltary rifle of the USA…Mauser sued them for copyright infringement and the USA paid punitive royalties up until 1917. All Messerschmitt aircraft used a stall corrector on their wings patented by Hadley Paige of England and they paid licencing royalties all through the war (with counterfeit pounds towards the end through a Swiss bank). Most of the German pilots who trained in France after 1940 learned in Texan trainers built under licence by Fenec…they paid the licencing fees right up until war with the US was declared.

There is a library of books on this subject.

Hundred of thousands of returning Allied soldiers (Canadians & Americans) brought millions of captured ‘nazi’ guns (like K98, STG44, P08, P38, MG42, just to name a few) does that makes those brave Allied soldiers a nazi supporter?
Captured ‘nazi’ firearms & other equipment (like vehicles) were sold to the civilians by Canadian, American, Australian & New Zealend Govt. of the day, does that make those govt. a nazi supporter?

It doesn’t matter what Ms. Leitch owns & shoots but what should matter to Canadians is her support for legal gun owners & her willingness to fight for the rights of legal firearm owners in Canada.

The greatest weapon in the Nazi arsenal was a fake news media and slanderous whisper campaigns started by party operatives feeding fake news to that compliant media – just like the Hill Times.

There is no such things as a Nazi gun. Unless you can show me a gun with a nazi party membership. I do wish these lefty shitheads would stop spouting off on things they know nothing about.

I know that this is an uphill battle. I know that those of us who want the truth about Nazis to be told are fighting against ‘big education’ and international socialism. But the oft repeated statement that Nazis were far right; sort of conservatives gone bad, is a lie that has been promulgated by socialists since the closing days of the last war.

The truth is that Nazis were socialists. Their party name, ‘National Socialist Workers Party’ pretty well gives it away of course. But the ‘educated’ will declare that Nazis were racists, nationalists, had top down government, government control of industry, government control of all aspects of citizens private lives, complete control of education, cradle to grave government intervention in every aspect of a citizen’s life etc, etc, etc. Which of course accurately describes virtually every socialist government of the 20’th and 21st centuries.

Nazis were socialists. “The truth shall set you free.”

I seldom, if ever read anything on the Liberal Propaganda Hill Times, but i wonder if the Hill Times has ever done any articles on a true Nazi, George Soros and his connections to Justin Trudeau and his contributions to the Trudeau Foundation.
