Toronto Star's evidence of "right wing terror" epidemic is biased, dated -- and a dangerous distraction

Brian LilleyArchive

The RCMP have arrested a man in Fort St. John, BC on terror related charges. While the media reported the arrest, they continue to play down the threat of Islamic jihad motivated terror in Canada.

The Toronto Star, for instance, is trying to convince readers that the real danger comes from white supremacists and "right wingers."

Too bad the paper uses shaky data and sources -- not to mention an ambiguous 2000 murder case -- to push their "white supremacist" meme.

(And a note to that Star reporter: Hitler wasn't a "right winger...")

I guess I'll have to list them again, for the benefit of my fellow journalists:

All the Canadian Islamic terrorists who've committed or plotted to commit crimes here and abroad in recent years...

If you catch a fly and tear off it’s right wing….it will spin clockwise without getting off the ground and die of exhaustion…pull off the left wing and the only difference in outcome is that the death spin will be counter clockwise….either way the high ground bragged about does not get achieved.

The whole trick of labeling things “left” and “right” is propaganda prestodigitation and rhetorical slight of hand. I no longer give a fuck which pocket you want to pick…left or right….keep your hands out of my pockets or risk loosing them.

Joan, is it your belief then that we have not had any jihad attacks here? I am just asking, not trying to start a fight nor insulting you.
commented 2015-07-12 19:15:52 -0400
Welcome back Joan. I was beginning to wonder where you had gone to. I missed your “no nonsense” approach to events.

The Star interprets “threat of terrorism” to mean an imminent threat of planes flying into the TD, not the insidious creep of social engineering jihad. Different frame of reference.

This latest arrest is another “counselling terrorism” charge, which means RCMP did a sting. An undercover pretended to be a jihadi and got the target to counsel him/her on how to do the dirty deeds. Fair enough, in my mind. I want to keep our streets clear of any impending doom.

But I do fear that at some point we will become a target for attack from abroad. You know like a pulse launched from offshore or some idiot from North Korea with good aim. Then the Star will call it an isolated act of terrorist-inspired crime … or something of that sort.

In the meantime, I wish we could rid our society of the creep jihadis who chip, chip, chip away at our laws and at our security, who make war abroad and send us their refugees among whom are some violent sleepers.

I agreed with you guys completely. Isn’t funny though every lefty I have ever met was a chicken shit bedwetter

Dale – It boils down to their radicalism is righteous yours is terrorism – actually disagreeing with one of these cultural fascists is an act of terror. We see this in the nutty idea that a right wing supremist/terrorism even exists when history shows us the bulk of domestic terror events have been openly for left wing political causes – weathermen, ALF, Unibomber – this has now shifted to Islamic domestic terror, The art of the big lie is the left’s WMD.

Modern-day German neo-Nazis are demonstrably just as Leftist as Hitler was. So are American, British and Australian neo-Nazis also Leftist in any sense?

The answer to that is a simple one: They are pre-war Leftists, just as Hitler was. They are a relic in the modern world of thinking that was once common on the Left but no longer is. They are a hangover from the past in every sense. They are antisemitic just as Hitler was. They are racial supremacists just as Hitler was. They are advocates of discipline just as Hitler was. They are advocates of national unity just as Hitler was. They glorify war just as Hitler did etc. And all those things that Hitler advocated were also advocated among the prewar American Left.

That does however raise the question of WHY such thinking is seen as “Rightist” today. And the answer to THAT goes back to the nature of Leftism! The political content of Leftism varies greatly from time to time. The sudden about-turn of the Left on antisemitism in recent times is vivid proof of that. And what the political content of Leftism is depends on the Zeitgeist — the conventional wisdom of the day. Leftists take whatever is commonly believed and push it to extremes in order to draw attention to themselves as being the good guys — the courageous champions of popular causes. So when the superiority of certain races was commonly accepted, Leftists were champions of racism. So when eugenics was commonly accepted as wise, Leftists were champions of eugenics — etc. In recent times they have come to see more righteousness to be had from championing the Palestinian Arabs than from championing the Jews so we have seen their rapid transition from excoriating antisemitism to becoming “Antizionist”.

Typical Star Opinion piece – it’s like walking into a party and taking a dump on the coffee tablw – they know it; complete sxxt but they do it for the shock value – lefty readers like to read lies like this to reaffirm their sanctimony.

Seent this to the star this morning as reading that article just pissed me off. The Star has stopped caring about truth or facts, they only care about furthering there marxist agenda anymore. Good I would give anything to see the end of the star and especially the CBC. Anyway….

In regards to your article ‘Right-wing extremism a greater threat in North America” Not only was this article so full of incorrect “facts” and half-truths that I can’t believe it made it past the editors desk! As if this article wasn’t bad enough you go ahead and place blame on right wingers for the murder of 15-year-old Aylin Otano-Garcia in June 2000. Does nobody in the stars office have any knowledge of history? The boys that committed this murder were followers of Nazism and worshiped Adolf Hitler as there leader. Nazism (or National Socialism; German: Nationalsozialismus)
Yes, they were worshiping a jack booted socialist, not the right wing or a conservative. Nazism is a socialist ideology, not the rights ideology. Excellent job you do there misleading Canadians with half-truths and outright lies. You should be ashamed. If the facts don’t go with the narrative you have decided to tell you just ignore them or twist them to suit your agenda. That’s the real problem a newspapers agenda should be to get the people the facts. The Toronto Stars agenda has become preaching a far left ideology rather than the facts.
Oh and Katherine Porters behavior this week was absolutely disgusting behavior for a journalist. She should have been immediately fired for what she has done. She makes Brian Williams look like an honest guy. How many of her other stories of hers have been total fakes. How many people has she gone after and then misquoted them to make a better story. She is a liar with zero credibility and should be shown the door.

Great work Brian. Who in the world would think that Hitler was not a socialist?

It’s scary how any people still read The Toronto Star, it shows how dumbed down so many people are. Uninformed and yet will believe the propaganda in The Star which, in my opinion has become a yellow rag of a newspaper. Between the Star and the CBC too many are willing to go along in their ignorance and when told they’re being scammed with out and out lies, they say newspapers are ALL the same. But they will continue to read and watch and not even be interested in doing any research. Too frustrating! I forward The Rebel to all my contacts but some people are slow in changing habits.

The way I see it – Is that if Muslims want to kill us just because we despise your perverted Prophet—— The fact is that if Mohammed ever plunked his fat ass down in Canada—-we would have to lock him up in a very padded cell. So if your Religion says that you must KILL us—— then come ahead.

The leftist MSM are steadily paving the way for the complete destruction of Canada. More and more, they fit the standard definition of fifth columnists (literally) bent on destroying the country that gave them the freedom to do it.
commented 2015-07-11 19:17:09 -0400
When you repeat your version of a story over and over, the truth no longer matters.

Lefty MSM in Canada has carried out socialist spin for decades. The internet has put the MSM on the verge of being wiped out.
And the lefty star still does it. There must some back door gewbermint funding coming from somewhere to keep the torstar sh*tshow rolling – it’s not advertising revenue, that’s for sure.

Well said Glenn Craig. Angry Tom is about the only leader that I could think of that would unleash a police force wearing sand Browns and jack boots.

It has been a popular contention amongst the liberal elites that Hitler and his party were right wingers. It is the way that liberal teachers and professors can avoid the unpleasant truth that the Fuhrer and his merry band were socialists just like our liberal friends. This lie has been taught to children since the late ‘50s and has become the accepted norm’ for all liberals. Unfortunately for them, the truth is that they are supporting many of the basic principles that the Nazis espoused. It has always been a mystery how these education elites missed the fact that the Nazis were known as the National SOCIALIST party. The name pretty much gives it away.

The left rabble are simple souls who follow their team because everyone they know does the same thing. Their distorted beliefs are not the result of excessive research or even mild curiosity about why shouting insults at opponents is their main assigned function.

“Right wing” is not a religion like lslam….“right wing” is not a submerged nationalism like the FLQ….“right wing” has no leadership who’s names can be named, no manifesto or declaration of hostile intent, no training camps or instruction manuals on how to commit sabotage, no illegal source of armament, no uniform or scarf to show allegiance , no moto or slogan…. The MSM and their audience must live in a terrible state of terror….they have no way of knowing who their enemies might be……:-)

But no doubt they are numerous…….:-)

Right Wing Terror.. is an oxymoron .. What? … we have White Supremacists but they are called Demoncrats in the US .. This is totally fear mongering and stupidity all wrapped in a title that panders to the Left without any substance or truth..

Excellent report Brian. You have been reading my mail, or, to be more topical, you have been intercepting my text messages.

There is going to be no end to this type of b&ll $h!t reporting from the left wing media. I managed to get a couple comments in on the CBC website of the news story about some concert goers at Craven SK who put up the confederate flag at their camp site. I put a comment on there about African Americans who supported the flag and people need to do their homework and get the facts straight before passing judgement on the flag. One idiot posted a comment that questioned my point of view. So I posted several YouTube video links to backup my argument. To comment further on Kelvin’s post, the left wingers are too damn lazy to do any kind research for the truth or facts about an issue. The lefties are a bunch of sheep who follow and are willing to accept information at face value without any form of critical thinking. The info I provided was not hard to find. In this day and age with all the technology available, information should not be hard to find, but we have lazy leftie reporters and useless sheep who will continue to follow the made up crap that the MSM is dishing out. Long live the Rebel!

Socialists consider everyone and everything not conforming to their cloistered world to be suspect. Not surprising this story originated in the Red Star.

Hey Prince Knight at least they finally got off there asses and reported something.
