2015-09-09 I made a comment yesterday about how the LIberals shoudl have gone with the space man
I made a comment yesterday about how the Liberals “should have gone with the space man” (i.e. Marc Garneau) That’s the problem with “moderating” comments using people around the world not proficient in or familiar with Canadian history, politics, or idiosyncrasies. I stated in my comment Garneau would have a clear winner. I would be proud to have my country led by a man of such education and intelligence. The man is truly a hero. And I’m not even a Liberal.

So let me get this straight The Conservative In Name Only Party has expended hundreds of thousands of dollars
So let me get this straight. The Conservative In Name Only Party has expended hundreds of thousands of dollars in a years-long campaign to convince Canadians Justin Trudeau “just isn’t ready.” And we, the good people of Canada, have said, “You know what, Steve? You’re absolutely right. That Mulcair guy really deserves a serious look.” Gotta love it. Note to Liberals. You should have gone with the space man. And you shouldn’t have supported C-51.” 1 like.

  1. Excellent item. I recently had CBC comment disallowed for posting (in response to “…Then there is the situation when Canada and the U.S.A. would not accept Jews prior to WW II'”), the comment, “The information I have found online says Canada accepted 5,000 Jews, and the USA 200,000… this in the 30s and 40s.” (I had found this information on a museum’s site.)

    The same day, another comment disallowed was, “Well, doesn’t that say a lot! Reminds me of that old Groucho Marx saying ‘I wouldn’t want to belong to any club that would have me as a member.'”

    I have come to the conclusion that Viafoura’s so-called “moderating” is mainly based on thin-skinned readers (usually NDP/Liberal supporters) who “Flag” posts that they don’t like. These posts do not violate any CBC policy, but the moderators find it simpler to delete the posts than to read and judge them. This policy actually encourages people to “flag” posts. (Ironic that the NDP/Liberal side touts its “freedom of speech principles, isn’t it?)

    Some of my disallowed posts lead me to believe that the moderators merely pick posts completely at random, on occasion, simply to raise the quota of “work” they have accomplished.

    And why is it that I can go weeks with no disallowed posts, then suddenly in a single day have 4 or 5 posts disallowed? Obviously there is either a moderator off his nut, or some reader who is flagging everything I post.

    In the end, CBC’s moderation is joke, stifling legitimate conversation, and whatever they are paying Viafoura seems to be a waste of money. But hey, there’s plenty more taxpayer’s money where that came from!

    1. I would be interested as to why you think it is NDP or Liberals who flag your comments. I would say just the opposite as I have always put it down to Conservatives, given the nature of my comments.

      So I suppose it is across the board then, and not related to the views of any one partisan.

      I do think, though, that even reacting to flagged commenst without looking at the context of the comment is totally unacceptable. We should have the right to post critical comments as long as they meet the CBC guidelines and not suffer arbitrary censorship..

    2. I totally agree about the so called moderation on CBC. To have a comment disabled for stating the obvious, that Donald Trump is a buffoon that is a scary scenario for the US, and for the world. When I get three disabled in a row, and one already had 10 likes on it. The main posting was still there, so it seems I got pinked.

      1. Stating the obvious is that Hillary Clinton as POTUS is a scary scenario for the US and for the world.

        The CBC has censored this repeatedly:

        “Please stop your illegal, unconstitutional, pro-Clinton censorship. There are no submission guideline violations in my comment. None.

        There really is no depths to which the Clinton Broadcasting Corporation will not sink in their efforts to support warmonger Clinton.

        “BecauseNews,” the sometimes funny but vastly inferior comedy the CBC braintrust replaced the almost always hilarious “Irrelevant Show” with, bashes Trump on every episode.

        What comment did they provide on the DNC email scandal?
        Nothing.

        What comment did they provide on the wikileaks released emails?
        Again, nothing

        Today, the Current did another pro-Clinton piece with a bit about how bad it would be to have Trump with his fingers on the red button. The bit totally failed to mention how it is Clinton and Obama who are destroying MAD, that the US airforce didn’t hesitate to follow Clinton’s illegal orders when it came to Libya, and that it is Clinton that the American public should really be worried about when it comes to having her fingers on the button.

        Anyone that could do this:
        youtube.com/watch?v=Fgcd1ghag5Y
        just shouldn’t be given that sort of power.

        For program guests, the Current could’ve had:
        Julian Assange
        Ralph Nader
        Jeffrey D. Sachs and
        Paul Craig Roberts.”

      2. Having Hillary as POTUS is a scary scenario for the US and world. The CBC keeps censoring this:

        “Please stop your illegal, unconstitutional, pro-Clinton censorship. There are no submission guideline violations in my comment. None.

        There really is no depths to which the Clinton Broadcasting Corporation will not sink in their efforts to support warmonger Clinton.

        “BecauseNews,” the sometimes funny but vastly inferior comedy the CBC braintrust replaced the almost always hilarious “Irrelevant Show” with, bashes Trump on every episode.

        What comment did they provide on the DNC email scandal?
        Nothing.

        What comment did they provide on the wikileaks released emails?
        Again, nothing

        Today, the Current did another pro-Clinton piece with a bit about how bad it would be to have Trump with his fingers on the red button. The bit totally failed to mention how it is Clinton and Obama who are destroying MAD, that the US airforce didn’t hesitate to follow Clinton’s illegal orders when it came to Libya, and that it is Clinton that the American public should really be worried about when it comes to having her fingers on the button.

        Julian Assange
        Ralph Nader
        Jeffrey D. Sachs and
        Paul Craig Roberts.”

  2. I totally agree that the CBC moderation is totally inexplicable. It seems to have nothing to do with the posting regulations and DOES seem to be based on some readers flagging posts simply because they disagree with them.

    I can understand that moderation is necessary as there certainly are posts that do broach the regulations, but the CBC moderation is not working well. It needs to be replaced with something that IS based on the posting regulations.

  3. Here is my most recent “disallowed” comment at CBC:

    “And where do you suppose those ‘homegrown’ issues arose? They began by allowing huge masses of immigrants to enter, and set up entire communities which operate as separate ‘sub-cultures’ with their own laws, politics, etc. We are not that far from it ourselves. Ask the Edmonton Police about the Somali community.”

    What particular aspect of this post violates CBC policy?

  4. I doubt this will ever be read, as the original post is months old. But I just had a ‘content disabled’ by the CBC for saying the following:

    “There’s a tree in Winnipeg? I don’t buy it.”

    Are they protecting Winnipeg’ers feelings here, of vegetation’s in general? I shudder when my words echo Donald Trump’s sentiments, but political correctness is SERIOUSLY gone bat-s*$@ crazy.

  5. Cripes, you should go on the site now. Everything is moderated. Posts take hours to get through and are disabled for no reason whatsoever. Which means most people won’t repost because they are not going to wait around for hours to see if the post meets the mysterious standards of the moderators. Whom are obviously part of some make work project for Liberal party supporters. It was bad enough under the Conservatives, no it is completely surreal.

  6. CBC moderation of reader comments is getting worse as every day goes by. Canadians who pay a billion dollars a year for this organization are getting a poor return on their investment, and while our Charter or Rights allows us the privilege of free speech, and one would think the national broadcaster’s stories would be an opportunity for Canadians to engage in a dialogue, the opportunity has been throttled back to a trickle. How do they do this? (1) by imposing a highly censored filter on anything which challenges the ideas being put forward by the main published story itself. If it is any way critical of content of the CBC story, for example by pointing to elements that have a contentious nature, or by challenging the ‘sources’ of their story, chances are you’ll be filtered out. (2) by slowing the publishing of comments to a point that it takes hours (4,5,6) for comments to even appear. By doing this they deliberately discourage interest and the following of the conversation among Canadians that follows the story. It has perhaps gotten worse since some of the implementation of Harper’s C-51 began to kick in, and so any challenging of the official story (which has been proven so many times to be absolutely false, misleading disinformation and propaganda), any contest to the narrative which is presented by the story, is quickly removed. Mark Twain once said that “If you don’t read the news paper, you’re uninformed. If you do read the newspaper, you’re misinformed.” The appearance of alternative sources of news has been a major challenge to the MSM, but they have been the cause of their own demise through the telling of their false narratives. Many readers responding on this issue have said that the ‘reader comments’ were the best part of CBC stories, because it was in there that one could read the pulse of the Canadian people. It’s true; the comments have often been the best part of the story, with frequently better crafted, more insightful, intelligent writing. It’s criminal that Canadians are moderated by a company in another part of the world, too (I.C.U.C.) .. this company is utterly failing in it’s responsibility to Canadians ‘and’ the CBC .. their moderation is driving readers away. CBC fails Canadians once again by imposing this draconian control over the publishing of reader comments, and this militant censoring of reader feedback. It’s offensive, and a lot of people are abandoning the broadcaster for this reason alone. I certainly am. Canadians would be far better served if the billion dollars a year that goes into this white elephant were spent on something more worthwhile. Shut CBC down; they are not worth it any more.

    1. I agree with most of what you say. I do not think, though, that the information contained in CBC articles is as misleading or false as you imply. But I do agree that the moderation of comments is highly arbitrary, has nothing to do with the rules that CBC requires and the delay in posting comments makes any dialog with other commenters next to impossible.

      Although I have always tried to post objective and fair comments, some have been disabled for no reason that I can imagine. The result has been that I have ceased to comment very much any more as it serves little purpose.

      I can understand that moderation is required to remove much of the trolling and personal slurs. but the company that has been chosen to do this moderation seem totally inept.

      1. George .. I agree with you that the arbitrary nature of comment moderation is one of the major concerns .. there frequently seems to be a disconnect between the applied rules and the content which does and doesn’t get posted. Perhaps it’s the nature of the beast, that wherever and whoever is tasked with the job, the subjectivity and arbitrariness is impossible to get around.

        Without being too hard on them, I do have serious concerns about the accuracy of their narrative on numerous occasions. They get an enormous amount of their content from the likes of Thompson Reuters and Associated Press, plus other mainstream US and European sources. These are the same kind of organizations which provided ‘the narrative’ for the buildup to the Iraq War, for example, and for Afghanistan, Libya, and now Syria. It’s one of the biggest stories of the century that the mainstream media was culpable in the fanning of the flames for these conflicts .. they fail to challenge the narrative that politicians tell us. Millions of lives have been lost in the Middle East, in part because the fifth estate has failed to keep our leaders and officials accountable .. to make them answerable for the things they tell us to justify wars and bombing runs. As a person gets into researching these serious issues in the world, you come to understand that there is a wide gap between the official story we’re told in the MSM, and the truth. How does one get the truth .. with a lot of effort, often going to dozens and dozens of other sites where intelligent, educated, experienced and talented writers tell their own version of what is happening. Frequently these writers have abandoned mainstream news corporations BECAUSE of this problem .. because they are incensed at how their personal journalistic standards have been compromised. Over time as one explores other diverse sources, like dabs of paint on a canvas, a different picture emerges to what we read in the newspapers on see on television. Many, many books, countless articles, have been written about this mismatch between the truth and what we read and see in the mainstream media. With respect, because I agree with you that its is arbitrary, and you make some excellent points, I do not believe that the ‘news’ we get on CBC is always so close to the truth, and I stand by my claim. In fact, I think it’s because of this, as one reason among many, that reader comments often do become as inflammatory and angry as they appear to .. because intelligent, informed people KNOW that they are not being informed of the full truth.

      2. Any news source depends on the viewpoint and experience of the reporter. I also look at a number of alternative news sources and while there are differences between those sources, it is hard to know which has the greater truth without being on the site personally.

        I would say that MSM tends towards over-sensationalism as it strives to attract readers/viewers.

        Given the expense of having investigative reporting and foreign reporting, we are always at the mercy of a short supply of news.

        However, the one thing not to trust is social media of any form as this is a totally unaccredited source and so frequently totally off the mark as a result.

  7. Most of the national media has been providing minimal if any coverage on the various resistances and “land defenses” currently going on throughout central and northern British Columbia.

    The most notable of those would be (from West to East) the Lax Kw’aalams vs Petronas and the BC government at Lelu Island, the Unist’ot’en camp (along with the Gitdumden and Gitxsan Madii Lii camps) that is in the way of multiple pipelines through their unceded traditional territories, and the Site C dam being forced through by BC Hydro against the suggestions of the Joint Review Panel that the province paid to do a three year assessment of the project and that is opposed by local First Nations on a Constitutional basis, resident land owners, and environmental scientists globally.

    The last project has had a camp of protesters camped out on the front lawn of the BC Hydro offices in Vancouver for over a month that originally surrounded a young woman performing a hunger strike to attempt to draw attention to the many issues that indicate that the dam is not needed, dangerously destructive, and very likely a multi-billion dollar boondoggle.

    She lasted 20 days before being hospitalized with no attention from any major media, the CBC stated that they would not report on the protest because of a policy of not “encouraging self harm” with their stories.

    That network covered multiple hunger strikes throughout 2015, and there is no record of that policy being implemented by the Stephen Harper appointed President and Directors of the CBC.

    With BC Hydro having filed an injunction to require that the protesters be removed from the site yesterday (April 27) both CTV and CBC news teams finally showed up for the first time (amazingly quickly after the injunction was filed) and were able to produce seemingly unbiased reports that actually manage to both be sympathetic to the Crown Corporation and condescending towards the campers.

    Of course, the CBC has disabled comments for that story.

    Any student of history looking at the full alignment with the corporate conglomerate media networks by the supposedly public national news network of a country regarding big money stories would be very, very concerned.

    I know that I am.

    1. Thank you for the awesome comment. You are absolutely correct.

      I might add that, regardless of one’s stand on personal firearms freedom, I don’t think that picking a fight with the one group of people in this country who have that natural right recognized in law is a particularly good idea.

  8. My comment to the CBC moderators today and yesterday.

    Stop your illegal, unconstitutional, totalitarian, pro-Clinton censorship. You censored this comment, originally made to another article to which comments were open and then closed before the comment was allowed, even though there are Absolutely NO submission guideline violations in same. People have a right to know what you are doing.

    ——– My censored comment—–

    On CBC’s National News tonight, (last night) which I watched for the first time in years, (which will also be the last time I will watch in years) the major news story was Trump’s making lewd comments and showing, shockingly, I say with considerable sarcasm, that horror of horrors there is a heterosexual male running for President.

    There was absolutely nothing about the Wikileaks released Clinton emails and their actually appalling and shocking revelations. Nor was there any mention of these emails on the radio news broadcasts.

    What a joke of a network the Clinton Broadcasting Corporation has become.

    (And of course, this joke of a network sees fit to run this as a story:
    http://www.cbc.ca/news/entertainment/deniro-video-trump-1.3797697)

    1. First of all, thank you so much for stumbling across my humble blog and leaving your comment. Second, you’re absolutely correct.

      I don’t watch CBC News or any other “news.” From my viewing of their on-line “reporting” I can only imagine the crap that makes it to air. As it happens (no pun intended, CBC), my wife is American. Japanese American, actually. Born in Mississauga to be precise. And she is most assuredly voting for Trump. Just the mere mention of Mrs. or Mr. Clinton causes words to come out of her mouth that would embarrass a longshoreman. We went down to suburban Detroit to visit her family last weekend. They are all Trump supporters (including the women) and they are all working folk just like you and me.

      As I noted on my website, LettersToTheBeast, tomorrow (October 10, 2016) is the 26TH anniversary of the Babies and Incubators hoax, which Peter Mansbridge (among many others) reported breathlessly. That lie, and many since, have gotten hundreds of thousands killed since then. Unfortunately – at least if you are CBC and other corporate media – they can’t get away with that crap any longer because WE have the means to point out their lies in a matter of seconds. What you are witnessing on the idiot box is corporate media in its death throes. And if we’re not careful, it’s going to kill a lot more people along with it. As I warned in a letter to Mr. Mansbridge (posted on this website), these continued lies are likely to get US ALL INCINERATED. And I’m pretty sure neither his house in Stratford or the Front Street bunker where he works is designed to withstand one million degrees F and winds of 1,000 miles per hour.

      Let’s hope that Donald Trump survives long enough to be inaugurated and that he has the wisdom to see we’ve been lied to. And he puts a stop to it.

      Best wishes.

      1. Thank you. To you as well. And thank you for creating this comment board to expose what is now happening and has been happening, at the CBC.
        I don’t like Trump, I supported Sanders, but Trump is much less of a danger to world peace than Clinton. Her joking and laughter on live tv upon hearing of Ghadafi’s murder was deeply disturbing. She is the warmonger candidate and she seems to lack conscience and empathy.

    2. I’m not sure CBC news is worse than any other, but I’m not a good judge… I don’t watch television news. If it’s on when I enter the room, I change the channel or leave the room.

      In my opinion, watching TV news to find out what’s happening is like asking someone else to select and chew your food for you, then put it into your mouth for you to swallow. You’re at their mercy, and not necessarily going to get what’s best for you. You will also never learn to “process” things for yourself.

  9. Today, the pro-Clinton censorship was particularly strong. Clinton supporters can say anything they want about Trump and call him any names they like but I was unable to publish this:

    “You’ve got it backwards. Clinton is orders of magnitude worse than Trump.

    Clinton strongly advocated and propagandized for the second Iraq war, she convinced her husband to make war on Yugoslavia over the fake Kosovo genocide, Clinton spearheaded the war on Libya, Clinton supported the coup against the lawfully and democratically elected President of Honduras, she supported the coup against the lawfully and democratically elected President of Ukraine, she practically created ISIS to try and bring down Syria’s secular government., and Clinton laughed and mused about nuking Iran. She has been responsible for four wars, more than 5 million displaced, more than 250,000 deaths, and she actually laughed and joked about Ghadafi’s rape and murder on live tv.

    As for the content of those emails which you decided you don’t care about, seriously, if you aren’t a Clintonite you should take the time to read through them. A lot of what you will find is absolutely shocking.”

    There is not one word that violates the CBC “submission guidelines,” yet it was content disabled. I also endeavoured to make other comments which did not violate the guidelines and they were content disabled.

    In frustration, I made the following comment, twice:
    “The unbiased asshole Clintonite moderator is only allowing pro-Clinton and anti-Trump comments.” which violates the CBC submission guidelines and was content disabled, but seems to be true.

    The very biased moderator proceeded to ban me from commenting for 24 hours.

    “Your account has been banned from posting until 10/19/2016.
    Reason: Your account has been blocked for a period of 24 hours due to a
    comment(s) that could be construed as ‘hate speech’ which is against our
    Submission Guidelines. For more information, please visit:
    http://www.cbc.ca/aboutcbc/discover/submissions.html.”

    Wow just wow. No extremely biased, pro-Clinton censor, there is nothing in my comment attempting to call attention to your censorship, that could be construed as “hate speech.”

    There must be a public inquiry into what is happening at the CBC. They have failed their mandate completely

    1. Sorry to be a pain but what is happening at the CBC is Orwellian.

      The CBC’s pro-Clinton censor censored this multiple times today.

      Disabled content:

      “The CBC, in its website and on its radio news, report on this, but they failed to report on this:
      https://www.google.com/trends/explore?date=now%207-d&q=wikileaks,trump%20pussy,trump%20women,trump%20allegations

      Just incredibly shoddy journalism? Wargasm? Misandry? Payola?”

      In response to this allowed comment:
      “Trumpspeak…..please don’t add this to the new words list for English language. Trump is just an ignoramus of epic proportions and lets leave it at that.”

      I made this comment:
      “Just a test:

      @Tim Joseph

      Clintonspeak…..please don’t add this to the new words list for English language. Clinton is just an ignoramus of epic proportions and lets leave it at that.”

      Content disabled.

      And of course linking to your site:
      Content disabled.

      Have a great day.

      1. I do appreciate your comments and your support. Sorry if I don’t approve all comments right away. I do have a paying job and sometimes it takes me a day or so before I can get on to my computer. Thanks again and best wishes.

      2. The CBC is a joke. I once thought it was a place to see what a cross-section of the Canadian public thought…. but if it ever was that, it is not now. If you make a post butt-kissing Trudeau, you are sure to get posted. If you criticize him, the moderators may disallow you… and if they don’t, some Liberal will “Flag” your post and it will then be deleted by the moderators.

        I figured this out a while ago, after several of my posts were allowed, and then disallowed later. From reading the various other posts in the thread I could see what had happened.

        I doubt that the moderators even bother to ponder the “Flags.” It’s too much trouble. If a post is flagged, they delete it. Easy-Peasy.

  10. The censorship at cbc.ca/news is strong again today.
    My first comment was “content disabled.”
    Where are the CBC submission guideline violations?

    “The only thing that has hit rock bottom is the state of the US democracy, thanks to the propaganda being continuously disseminated by the military-industrial complex owned msm to support the warmonger candidate.

    Don’t believe it.

    October 10th was the 30th anniversary of the Iraqi soldiers throwing babies from incubators story the msm, including the CBC, so happily ran.
    https://letterstothebeast.com/2015/10/09/congratulations-hill-knowlton-the-central-intelligence-agency-and-the-broader-u-s-government-on-the-25th-anniversay-of-babies-and-incubators/

    The wargasm the msm were having was so intense it caused their reasoning ability and any skills of critical analysis they had to cease.
    It is happening again this Presidential election.”

    I can’t complain on the CBC site lest I be banned again for “possible hate speech.”

  11. The CBC censor continues to allow Clinton supporters to call Trump all sorts of names including “Groper,” and “rapist.” and to call his supporters,”racists,” “misogynists,” “deplorables” “sexists,” and “pyschopaths.”

    It will not allow Clinton opponents to call Clinton a warmonger or psychopath, though she is clearly both of those, or to call Clinton supporters, “misandrists,” “femfascists,” and “manginas.”

  12. Allowed comment:

    Maurice O’brien

    “It seems that Trump, to his utter astonishment, is discovering that being revealed to the world as a racist misogynist does not do wonders for one’s corporate image. Hey, who knew?”

    My content disabled reply:
    Stop your illegal, unconstitutional, free speech suppressing pro-Clinton censorship.

    @Maurice O’brien

    “Being revealed to the world as an anti-democratic, warmongering, psychopathic. misandrist, racist – the wikileaks emails show that too – sleazebag doesn’t seem to be hurting Clitnon’s popularity if the msm can be believed. Except they can’t and everyone but Clintonites and the msm know it.

    Way more people are interested in the wikileaks revelations than any trivialities the msm has reported on concerning Trump.

  13. CBC censorship is a joke, I haven’t been on the CBC website in months and last week I made a couple of comments, not confrontational or hateful at all just stating a very basic point and my comments were disabled. Canada is ‘supposed’ to be a democracy then it should act like one since we taxpayers give CBC over a billion a year.

  14. The following post was “disallowed” today, November 9, 2016. What kind of morons are hired as moderators? Seriously.

    STORY HEADLINE: Long lines, voting machine problems and a lawsuit to start election day

    “Trump is nothing like Hitler…. however I can see that the reasons he was elected were similar. Before 1939, Germans were living in poverty. War reparations were draining the country, and the people were desperate. (This is history you can read about.)

    Hitler offered hope and dignity to people who had lost hope and saw no way out except an “outsider.”

    When people are backed into a corner, it’s amazing what they’ll do to try to fight their way out. They’ll blame Mexicans (or Jews), and submit to a lot of extraordinary effort (war and hard work) if they can see what they think is a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Many Americans feel that they have been backed into a corner.”

    This censorship would be funny if it wasn’t so asinine.

  15. After the CBC ran an article by a poet in residence claiming that Clinton lost because of racism and sexism, I tried to get this repeatedly “content disabled” comment published.

    “Third wave (femfascist) feminism is really just blatant misandry: “mansplainer, sexual harasser, groper, stalker, philanderer, rapey, creepy, manspreader” all labels designed to demonize and attack the male of the species, all sexist labels the CBC censors happily allow, and CBC journalists happily and unquestioningly employ in their misandrist articles. This feminism is also puritanical and an enemy of free speech and freedom of expression. It is time all men and all reasonable women told third wave (femfascist) feminism and the pro-warmonger msm that supported their warmonger queen, that they really really suck – intellectually, philosophically, and biologically – and have been Trumped to the dustbin of history.

    Remember Clinton Broadcasting Corporation, no matter how badly you want to proclaim their propaganda, the majority doesn’t feel any need to hear from them any more. We’ve heard the femfascists, and for their misandry, hatefulness, authoritarianism and intolerance we’ve judged them sorely lacking.”

    The censors are apparently confusing sexism with attacking a particularly virulent, particularly misandrist, particularly free speech hating, branch of the feminist movement.

  16. More ridiculous censorship at the CBC, based on substantive content.

    “Disabled comment”

    The Capitalist Post is usually wrong about everything, rarely can truth be gleaned from its pages. Barbara Kay’s article is no exception. Yes, many millennial preferred Trump to warmonger Hillary, and yes many millennials couldn’t bring themselves to vote for corrupt global 1% representing Hillary and stayed home. And yes, millennials aren’t that big on democracy, corrupt as it has been, and see little reason to prefer to live in a corrupt society with a war economy that offers little in the way of economic growth any more, especially when they know communist China and communist Vietnam are growing by leaps and bounds. But no, the CPUSA backed HRC in her efforts to defeat/cheat Bernie out of the nomination, and were bigly into Hillary defeating Trump.

    Millenials aren’t by and large interested in the identity politics and the tribulations of those poor, hard done by ivory league university women who get traumatized by “ghetto” males attempting to communicate with them when they walk down public streets. They are interested in economic issues, class issues, trade issues. It was because Sanders and Trump talked that language, rather than the misdirecting language of gender and identity politics that does nothing but obscure economic reality, that they supportered Sanders and then Trump, and found HRC so distasteful.

    “I’m with her” no more resonated with millennials than it did with middle age white males who lost their formerly well paying, unionized jobs in the auto and steel sectors.

  17. Still more censorship from the CBC. Questioning their strident misandrist narrative just isn’t allowed. Can you see any submission guideline violations in this comment?

    “Comments allowed for this, but not the latest piece of femfascist propaganda on “revenge porn” and the need to prosecute those who distribute nudie pics for which they have no document to prove they had the “victim’s” consent.

    1. Don’t have nudie pics if you want to ensure they never end up on the internet.
    2. If you have given a guy nudie pics because you wanted to generate or keep his interest, and you lose your attraction for him, decide he wasn’t right for you after all, or some other guy comes along and gets your interest, don’t be a heartless, cheating, c nut, and you won’t have to worry about the pics being distributed as revenge porn.
    3 Put on the big girl pants, and stop crying to the state, or expecting it, and taxpayers, to protect you from the consequences of your naivety or horrible behaviour.

    The legislation the Harper government enacted that the CBC wants to use to go after image distributors is appalling in its breath and scope, and wide enough to criminalize the viewing of internet porn. Viewing necessarily entails distribution – it is the way the internet works.”

  18. This was repeatedly censored today. There are no submission guideline violations.

    “CBC censorship summed up: if it violates submission guidelines but attacks men, Trump, Trump supporters, men’s rights advocates, or peace advocates, allow. If it doesn’t violate submission guidelines but attacks femfascism, Trudeau, Clinton, Clinton supporters, supporters of the Liberal government, the CBC’s hypocrisy, or warmongers, disallow.”

    1. “Please stop your illegal, unconstitutional, pro-Clinton censorship. There are no submission guideline violations in my comment. None.”

      From submission guidelines:
      3.If you are writing about legal issues, remember that people are innocent until proven guilty (that may mean using words such as “allegedly”).

      Right there, they gotchu. Throw in modifiers such as “It is my stated belief that…”.

      2.Be respectful and courteous, as if you were having a face-to-face discussion.

      Marginal, but applicable.

      1.Keep Your Content relevant to the topic and avoid repetitive posting.

      How many times did you say that they deleted that comment?

      (cough, cough)

      1. I never include this clause:
        “Please stop your illegal, unconstitutional, pro-Clinton censorship. There are no submission guideline violations in my comment. None.”

        in a comment when the comment is first made, not until after it has been censored.
        So the submission guideline you cite does not provide any basis for the censorship.

        Until a comment has been posted, there is no repetitive posting.

  19. Still more censorship on the CBC. This was repeatedly censored even though there are no submission guideline violations in my comment.

    More fake news from the msm.

    The countries where Obama and then Trump, sought travel restrictions for are countries America has, for no good reason, been making war upon or stirring up dissent in. They happen to be primarily Muslim countries but there are many Muslim countries there are no restrictions for, one of which (Saudi Arabia) may have had citizens that were extensively involved in 911.

    Of course terrorists who were born in the US are going to outnumber those who weren’t by a wide margin. There is a wide margin between the US population and the numbers of people who immigrate to it each generation.

    And no, no one from Syria has been involved in an attack on the USA. But they have been involved in a multitude of attacks in Europe.

    It must be tough being part of a “profession” were so much of the public is more intelligent than the “professionals,” or at least, aren’t half as stupid as the members of the “profession” think the public is.

    On the CIA’s plans to foment war in and destabilize Syria, something the military-industrial complex’s presstitutes in the US and Canadian msm have not reported on at all, and which the Clinton Broadcasting Corporation won’t report on either. see https://twitter.com/wikileaks/

    “The seven countries were included in a law President Barack Obama signed in 2015 that updated visa requirements for foreigners who had traveled to those countries.”

    You sometimes can find truth in CBC propaganda. It is what Jimmy Dore exposed weeks ago when the msm were hollering about Trump’s “Muslim ban,” and what I tried to get readers of the comments sections to some of the shrill CBC stories, to understand

  20. The censorship at the CBC was particularly atrocious and atrociously biased tonight. Does s/he work for the US deep state?
    The CBC censor allows Nancy van der Meulen
    to say this:
    “I am surprised and even appalled at how many people who post on this site see nothing wrong with Sessions lying under oath. And they see nothing wrong with Sessions (or Flynn) working on Trump’s campaign team as surrogates and regularly talking to the Russian Ambassador, a known spy master. Obviously these two knew they were doing something wrong, otherwise they wouldn’t lie about it.
    What has happened to people’s morals? Their sense of right and wrong? Is honesty a thing of the past?
    Or are they so dazzled by Trump that anything done for him is okay? It looks as if Trump was right when he said he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and his followers would still vote for him.
    What a sad comment on humanity.”

    A claim of dubious accuracy, since Sessions may have legitimately forgotten, and the question that was asked by Al Franken was not asking Sessions if he personally had talked to anyone working for Russia, but if he knew of anyone,
    which would of course direct Session’s mind elsewhere,
    and a comment that was certainly in violation of the CBC submission guideline prohibiting attacks on other commentators, in fact there were multiple violations of this guideline.

    I repeatedly tried to make the following reply comment:

    “You be appalled. I’m appalled you Clintonites weren’t appalled when Obama and HRC were bombing Libya back to the stone age, when Obama was killing children in Pakistan and Yemen with drones, greenlighted the Ukraine coup governments launch of an air and military attack against East Ukraine – which did not support the coup government, and helped carry out the PNAC agenda on Syria, which led to millions of deaths and millions more displaced.

    You and Madeleine Albright, peas in a pod, and a sad comment on humanity.

    https://www.blackagendareport.com/progressive-hypocrite-feb17-madeleine-albright

    Always censored. Now I guess calling someone a Clintonite could be construed as a personal attack, but the censor allows Trump opponents to call those who stick up for him “Trumpsters,” “traitors,” “Putinistas,” and worse.

    The censor allowed this comment in the same comment line:

    “William Zandoli

    @Nancy van der Meulen

    It’s what they get paid to do.”

    also a complete violation of the CBC submission guidelines against attacking other commentators.

    and another gem in a different comment line but in the same comment section also

    from
    William Zandoli

    “Fearon Steele still thinks that Pizzagate is real.

    Hilarious!”

    a comment adding nothing to the discussion and a complete violation of the CBC submission guidelines prohibiting personal attacks on other commentators.

    Clearly the censor is breaking Canadian law and censoring without regard to the CBC’s own submission guidelines, but for whether the substantive content accords with the CBC narrative or the personal beliefs and bias of the censor.

    The Canadian public deserves better. Much better.

  21. Sorry for being a pain but this was repeatedly censored today:

    “Stop your illegal, unconstitutional, free speech suppressing censorship. There are no submission guideline violations in my comment. None. So either it goes up here or on one of the many websites documenting your illegal censorship.

    I love how the oppressed majority trying to enter the tech field are so quick to run screaming “sexual harassment” and “sexism” when the culture they find at the tech companies isn’t to their liking and doesn’t match their puritanical beliefs.

    The people who create the tech companies, largely men, largely nerds and often outsiders who these women or their mothers wanted nothing to do with when they were in high school – since these women or their mothers were all going gaga over the football, basketball or hockey jocks – or university – since they were going gaga over the med, dental and law students – created the concepts, took the risks, put in the long hours, experienced the failures and hardships and rejections and the dispiriting and income robbing intellectual property thefts and knock-offs, and the business losses, and the bankruptcies, and the horror of having to deal with venture/vulture capitalists, all without female support. Then finally, when these largely unsung heroes manage to come up with something that makes them money, well, they just have to change and accommodate all the poor oppressed majority and their beliefs and standards because they now want to work there and set the parameters and terms of their employment.

    “We won’t adapt to your workplace culture, you adapt to the misandrist, puritanical culture we experienced as privileged females attending universities, and want for your workplace.””

    Were there any submission violations? Was the comment doing anything other than telling it how it is?

  22. Comments were not allowed for this piece of femfascist trash:
    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-post-secondary-sexual-assault-policies-a-start-but-fall-short-experts-say-1.4078365

    So I tried to object on a story where comments were allowed, complaining about the CBC’s not allowing comments to question the spew and the
    man-hate and sexism giving rise to these new government forced policies.

    Comment repeatedly denied of course. Beside complaining about the CBC’s refusal to let its misandrist, pro-freedom restricting, narrative be challenged, I also stated the following in relation to the story:

    “I love how the story quotes the most misandrist as experts saying the policies don’t go far enough, but will never quote the libertarians and the mra’s as experts who will say these policies go too far, amount to persecution of men, and allow men to be unfairly brought up on non-academic misconduct charges, since the policies always target male sexual behaviours and never female sexual behaviours – like making males jealous, or trying to get suitors to “fight” for them.

    It seems the author, and the CBC itself, could use some investigation for the way they promote misandry and the introduction of policies that blatantly sexually discriminate against males in our society. Making Canadian universities into hostile working environments for students who don’t have their sexual organs entirely within their bodies, has got to stop.”
