Not to defend Harper, but the job of the prime minister is no job for a “kid.” September 9, 2015.
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.

CBC censoring comments mentioning role of SSRIs and other prescription drugs in mass shootings


And not for the first time.

Every time there has been a mass-shooting and “everyone” is calling for guns to be banned, I have brought up the fact that in EVERY INSTANCE, the purported shooter’s mind has been fried by various psychiatric medications. Often the kind seen on U.S. network television news commercial breaks.

Here’s a peek at what The C.B.C.’s its commenting service Viafoura and its moderator (censor) ICUC found so objectionable:

Charleston slayings lead to changing attitude on Confederate flag Just curious, as a service to the clients of its reputation management services, are Viafoura and ICUC still blocking comments that ask about the kinds of prescription drugs Dyllan Roof was taking? Or does using the term “SSRIs” still earn me a “content disabled?” I guess I’ll find out soon enough.

While all other comments were being posted immediately, this comment had enough keywords in it to flag it for “review” by the moderator (censor). It was deleted within minutes.

A few minutes later…

Charleston slayings lead to changing attitude on Confederate flag @joseph Arlington Virginia And they also just happen to have their brains fried by prescription drugs. Should be ban the process of doctors handing out psychiatric medication like candy, earning Big Pharma, Big Media and the doctors themselves billions of dollars annually? No, no, no. Let’s all ban the guns. (oooh, here it comes: content disabled – I mentioned the SSRI thing)

I then taunted the moderator, posting the word “SSRIs” ten times in rapid succession. Each actually got a “like” before being removed within three minutes.


ICUC Moderation’s (http://www.icucmoderation.com/) job is to provide a “reputation management” service for its clients, which obviously include Big Pharma.

I honestly thought CBC was past this, as very few of its stories are “pre-moderated” now. In the past, ALL comments were reviewed before being posted. But I suppose when you mess with the advertisers, you’re going to get smacked down.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is a wholly-owned agency of the government of Canada, receiving over one billion dollars in subsidies from the taxpayers. IMG_20150623_112342



My last comment on the subject…

Charleston slayings lead to changing attitude on Confederate flag

I like how my comments regarding the effects of SSRIs and prescription drugs got likes before they were deleted.

I’m putting my comments and your censorship on my website, LettersToTheBeast, where you can’t take them down.

I win.

You lose.

…Is still there. For now.

I have a message for the CBC, Viafoura and especially ICUC: I will be posting EVERY comment you delete on LettersToTheBeast from now on as a means of demonstrating your pettiness. ICUC, you may claim to be able to “manage” (ie censor) social media and the larger internet.

You can’t.

You fail.
