“Toronto Star run by a bunch of sexist pigs”? Reporter’s suicide reveals MORE Media Party hypocrisy on feminism

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

A Toronto Star journalist has committed suicide. Raveena Aulakh is the victim. May she rest in peace. Her passing should not be news. But the circumstances behind it are.

Raveena was a young reporter, liberal, progressive, feminist — a perfect fit for the liberal, progressive, feminist Toronto Star. Except their workplace culture is more like something out of the Mad Men era — where young workers at the office were treated as pieces of meat for the sexual appetites of management.

Managers like Jon Filson, to be precise. He was a senior editor at the Star. Married man. But he had an affair with Raveena — and with his boss, the Star’s managing editor Jane Davenport.

For days after her death, the Star sat on the story. Filson left the company, without saying a word. And Davenport was reassigned.

The Star can be quite good at investigating this sort of thing — they were the newspaper that blew the lid off of Jian Ghomeshi’s culture of misogyny at the CBC.

It must have been ironic, to all those Star reporters, writing about the sexualization of Ghomeshi’s workplace. Writing those stories from the Star’s sexualized workplace.

So who will investigate the Star?

If I were Raveena’s family, I would sue the living daylights out of all of these fake feminists.

The rest of us? It’s just more evidence that liberals, like environmentalists who fly in private jets, don’t mean it.

Right on Ezra! “Liberals don’t mean it” When will the world finally understand that. They are opportunists, and nothing more.

It is good to air such stories of the collusion of third parties and more but I think it would be better to add the statistics that show that something like 40 % of all female children are assaulted or raped in their own homes.

We have been hiding from what we all are and allow in sexual misconduct for a long time now.

We will never solve such problems by ignoring how many of us are involved in them.

In the liberal club popularity is everything. It’s like being the flavor of the week. When you get cast from grace it’s a short road back to the real world. It’s where you discover your friends were only liking you because you were on your way up. Now you’ve become a ghost in the machine.

How can it be a shitty year? Isn’t it 2016?

So, she was 42. Worked for TorStar Corp. for almost 8 years. And a Sikh background.
How does giving your boss sexual favors start, and how does it continue in the workplace?
In her own words: What a shitty, shitty year already. (Feb. 2016)

LMAO, Jesus was so right , let the ones without sin cast the first stone. These elitists love to punish and belittle others for similar acts ,then they hide their own immoral deeds like cowards.

@anne in Swon….I am an old school patriarch….women get pregnant….men do not…..nature is not an egalitarian.

Isn’t there a double standard at play here? Filson was Raveena’s boss and was terminated by the Star. Davenport was Filson’s boss but was merely reassigned to another department with the Star. Why? Why does the woman receive a lesser punishment? Jane Davenport perpetrated the same misdeed as Filson and deserves to find herself in the same position – jobless. Equality my foot!

The hypocrisy that flowws out from feminist standards of sexual propriety is rooted in the fact that if you are not a lesbian who despises men….nobody can live up to your standards….

Please excuse me if I make myself conspicuous by my absence at any stoning of adulterers…even if it involved screwing your way to the top.

She was 42, not 22, and a respected, veteran reporter. Get your facts right.

The Metro is run by a bunch of irrational, illogical thinking men-hating feminists, like Rosemary Westwood, who think Feminists are for equality when they want gender parity, but only for women in male dominated area, not for men in female dominted areas, no men only places, but ok for women only places, still want historical preferential treatment for women in child custody and divorce etc, but that is what they claim is "equality

I wonder how many men who have committed suicide because they said something feminsts don’t like and have been subject to female verbally abusive bullying that is far, far worse than male bullying because it goes on forever, just ask other women who have been subect to it.

If certain men are acting like sexist pigs in the workplace treating women as pieces of meat, they’re are an equal number of feminists acting like men-hating bitches treating men as scum because they thing all men are scum, and making men fearing of saying anything that may be subliminal, underlying, perceived etc as sexist, misogynist because they are looking to get men in trouble

A Feminist who got what she expected from a typical male.

Since they are always claiming men are sexist pigs, rapists, violent and other vile creatures, I have no sympathy if they are subject to such abuse and discrimination.

In fact, I don’t think a man should be punished for acting in such a manner towards Feminist because he is just being the typical male toward them and giving her what she expects from a man.

In fact, Feminists have desentistized acts of mistreatment toward women because, with the exception of rape, they are constantly sexist, verbally and physically abusive towards men, and if it was done against a Woman, there is a possibiliy that it was not a woman, but a feminist who got it so no big deal

Toronto is nothing more than a cesspool of lying, corruption, greed, sexual gratification, immigrant mobs bitching about this that and the other thing, taxpayer freebies, social justice warrior complainers, gangs, violence, crooked cops, media scum, and on and on. No wonder Wynne is premiere.

Once again we see that “do as I say not as I do” from the lefties. We saw if from the “feminist” Ghomeshi and we see it from Filson as we saw it from the Soviet tyrants. These are people who have no moral foundation and want to protest and block free speech until they get the power they crave. Then any notion of justice and fairness goes out the window. Or as Jean Chretien so aptly called it, “The usual operation”.

Once again the left proves they are the biggest sleaze on the planet.

Like these feminists, Trudeau also flames to be a feminist.

Makes you wonder.

Leftys are hypocrites? Say it isn’t so! Leftys are scum of the earth. Time to cull the herd.

She was young and likely didn’t have a lot of experience with professional liars and deceivers! She hadn’t been tainted by them yet, and was likely impressionable. I wonder if she was pregnant? RIP Reveena!

Isn’t it apparent?

Would you be pissed off if your competitor was subsidized by the Canadian goobmint? Would you say something? I sure would.
So why is the media party so quiet on this matter??
That’s why all the news outlets write the same stories with the same opinions – ALL THE FUCKING TIME!!!!!
