In a CBC TV report broadcast on November 2marking the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration (the historic document written by Lord Arthur Balfour which expressed Britain’s support for a Jewish national homeland in historic Palestine) CBC Mideast journalist Derek Stoffel’s report implicitly cast doubt on Israel’s right to exist by supposedly referencing Palestinian claims stating that the Balfour Declaration “led to the military occupation of the Palestinian people by the Israelis.”
The time has come to call the duck a duck. It’s time to agree with a long list of Israeli political leaders, academics and public figures on both the political left and right, including three former prime ministers, a winner of the Israel prize, two former heads of the Israeli internal security service Shin Bet, and one of the country’s principal newspapers, all of whom have warned that the Jewish state is becoming, or already is, an apartheid state.
I would choose the latter characterization.
Our national broadcaster… They would not publish this if Justin did not approve.
Here’s the first installment of “What Was Wrong With CBC’s The National Last Night”. In these blurbs I will summarize the CBC’s flagship news program from the previous night, highlighting what was glossed over or completely ignored by the public broadcaster in the last day’s news cycle.
Canadians don’t choose to give our money to CBC. It gets taken through our tax dollars whether we like it or not. That makes CBC a government service, and government services are supposed to be applied in a neutral, non-partisan way.
Unfortunately, we all know that CBC is often used by the far-left to push their politically correct agenda, and attempt to shape the opinions of Canadians to a specific set of elitist and globalist ideas, instead of reflect the true views of the Canadian people.
After 50 years of silence, Che Guevara’s brother reveals the man behind the myth
What the fuck is wrong with these ignorant pampered asses at the CBC, I mean besides being ignorant pampered asses.
Che was a psychopath, he enjoyed murder, and yet they indulge the vile fantasy propagated by Che’s brother that the beloved revolutionary had no control over the sentences of those he executed.
The CBC’s Neil Macdonald is an ignorant bigot
“…Everyone else—be it the drag queens and nudists waving their genitals to the crowd at the Pride Parade, or the Black Lives Matter rioters shutting them down, or abortion activists screaming at families attending the March for Life—they have the right to express their views in public and to advocate for those views in the political sphere. But that’s because they’re not Christian. Macdonald thinks Christians should not have such rights. They can only speak to each other, in their churches.
And why? Because Macdonald doesn’t happen to believe what Christians believe, and because in spite of his alleged open-mindedness, he doesn’t have the faintest clue what Christians believe on any topic.”
“Their journeys spanned 400 days, involved crossing 15 borders on three continents and cost them nearly $40,000.
But earlier this month, as Canadians celebrated the 150th anniversary of Confederation, the two Somali asylum seekers who embarked on those risky journeys reached their final goal.”
How many Canadian citizens have 40 grand just laying around?

To get an idea of why the federal commission on missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls has acquired such a reputation for uselessness, try getting in touch with it.
There are two phone numbers on its website: one for anyone wishing to contact the commission, and one for anyone who feels triggered and traumatized “as a result of reading the content on this website.”
I called the former.
Voicemail. Left a message.
I called again later.
There is an email address, too. I emailed. No response. And again. Crickets.
After I obtained the email address for Sue Montgomery, the commission’s senior communications adviser, and asked for a chat, the reply came back:
CBC announces leadership changes at The National following ‘appropriation prize’ controversy
Honestly I think the CBC gets off on this sort of public self-flagellation, it’s feel good wankerism.
Marwan Barghouti is a bad man, which is why he’s 15 years into a 40-year prison sentence. He’s also a charismatic political activist.
In its April 16 Sunday edition, The New York Times published an op-ed by Barghouti, “Why We are on Hunger Strike in Israel’s Prisons,” with the byline, “Marwan Barghouti is a Palestinian leader and parliamentarian.”
On behalf of our 30,000 subscribers, HonestReporting Canada filed an official complaint today with CBC News for an April 17 article which sanitized Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti as a mere “prominent figure”. Untold by the CBC is that Barghouti is a convicted murderer, not a political prisoner who was convicted for the murder of five innocent people and for being a member of a terrorist organization.
Images of those arrests have been beamed around the world. Mounties gently carrying children, Mounties assisting women struggling with their possessions once they make it over the ditch.
Gasse shakes his head as he describes how the force has given interviews about the asylum seekers to broadcast crews from Norway and Australia, to the BBC and China state television.
“They tell us they are interested in the story because of the way we treat them when they cross the border. For us, it’s a crime. We arrest them. We do our police work. But in other parts of the world they aren’t as warm as here in Canada.”
That warmth, the generosity of Canada’s refugee system, is a source of pride to many Canadians. It’s also a growing source of debate.
The CBC can see which way the wind is blowing, so the narrative has changed. Before, the Canadian police were gracious active participants helping refugees escape the US – now they’re tough (but nice) guys enforcing the law. Of course the asylum seekers will spend the night in a warm clean jail with hot meals before the judge awards them official refugee status and all the perks that entails.
Britian’s new terrorism watchdog says the U.K. is facing a level of terror threat not seen since the IRA bombings of the 1970s.
Max Hill made the comment in his first major interview since taking up the role last Monday.
Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, he warned ISIS was planning “indiscriminate attacks on innocent civilians” and expressed “enormous concern” at the imminent return of hundreds of British jihadists who have been fighting in Iraq and Syria.
He also warned that British teenagers as young as 14 were being radicalized by extremists online.
Someone is going to lose their job, this got posted at the CBC.
