The pathetic sheltered workshop of far-left loons known as the ABC has its counterparts everywhere else. Here we take you to Canada which has its CBC, as unrepentant as any such bunch to be found anywhere. Here is a post by Kate McMillan at Small Dead Animals on Leave nasty comments for CBC and see what happens. As her own comments thread makes clear, the only characteristic that bands together all of the comments that are not posted by the CBC is that they are contrary to the views of the cadres who run the organisation. To understand the post and the comments thread that follows after, you need to know that the NDP is the Greens equivalent of Canada which may yet form the government after the election in October and whose leader is Thomas Mulcair. The Tories are the Conservatives led by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, similar to Tony Abbott in that he is a man of common sense surrounded by crazies, and those crazies are not just found in other parties. The Liberals (ie Labor) are led by the astonishingly vacuous Justin Trudeau who, like Hillary Clinton, leads the party only because of his family name. Here then are Kate’s words to start the post:
We all know CBC moderates comments. Most media outlets will. We do at The Rebel, we may be free speechers but there are people that say things that can get us sued, they spew profanity, they can do all kinds of things. So we moderate, every media outlet does.
So why on earth is CBC doing a story on the Conservative Party moderating comments on their social media feeds, other than the obvious answer – to make the Conservatives look bad.
While the Tories, the NDP and the Liberals all have active Instagram feeds, Meg Sinclair, a spokeswoman for Facebook Canada, said Harper’s account is the only one that has launched ads to date.
Many of the early comments on the sponsored posts were critical of Harper and his government’s policies. Those comments have since disappeared.
Who the hell cares on the CBC? This is only about showing the Conservatives in a bad light.
Try this out, go to CBC’s site and leave rude and profane comments and see if they stay up or are deleted. Then drop me a line in the comments to let me know what happens.
No one will be surprised at the results, but they should be read as a measure of the difficulty parties of the right face in every jurisdiction. The people who run the media are articulate, have direct control of the most far-reaching media service in their own countries, have the marketing of left-wing sophistries down pat, are as devious as any leftist soap-box operator found anywhere, and have a loud aggressive audience who may be relatively small in numbers but are found everywhere, and importantly, often have the special mark of deep ignorance, a university degree in the humanities. These organisations also have a constituency within every party in which they operate. It is a formidable combination that has thus far proven impossible to root out. And now that they are discovering this for themselves, have become more arrogant and indifferent to the public with each passing year.
