Tory MP Dan Albas: CBC’s Stance On Charlie Hebdo Cartoons ‘Concerning’

A Conservative MP says CBC News’ decision not to publish cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad is “concerning” and could point to a double-standard.

Dan Albas, who represents the B.C. riding of Okanagan-Coquihalla, expressed those views in a blog posted to his website Wednesday after an attack on satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo left 12 people dead, including four cartoonists.

The Paris paper’s provocative cartoons of the Prophet were featured by some publications in Canada this week in a show of solidarity with Charlie Hebdo and expression of free speech.


CBC = Christian Bashing Corporation. Piss Christ is fine but a Mohammed caricature? That’s Racist!

    My post at Mr. Albas’s blog:

    Thank you Mr. Albas for standing up for freedom of expression. When we have a section of our population that neither laughs at itself nor allow others to lampoon it, then we seem to be dealing with something that is rather at odds with our culture. Islam has totalitarian ambitions with the aim of us all submitting to their way of doing things. Quite frankly the time to stop appeasing these ambitions is upon us, and the CBC choosing to “respect” the sensitivities of humourless Muslims is unseemly.

    This is good to hear, but I disagree with him stating that it could point to a double-standard. There is NO doubt about the double-standard whatsoever.

    Taking a mighty big risk with your retirement board positions using words like “concerning” about a bunch of propaganda pushing pervert protecting porkbarrel
    parasite quislings like the CBC

    Remember the MP’s motto:

    “Doing your job isn’t it’s own reward, it’s not doing your job that’s rewarded.”

    Who is running CBC? Could it be Muslims? You have to wonder.

  • Tom Forsythe

    The CBC has run Kill Bill, Kissed (a movie about necrophilia), Leolo (don’t even ask), and a host of other “provocative” movies, without fear that they would offend anyone.
