“Hey, CBC, how can you still, in good conscience, report the popular narrative about “ISIS” when, if anything, this incident destroys that narrative once and for all? Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet that was actually bombing REAL terrorist targets. I mean, seriously, what else do we need to know? This war really is a fake, a fraud, a farce and a hoax. And you are insulting the intelligence of millions of Canadians (to say nothing of the rest of the world) by continuing to pretend otherwise. Twenty-three years ago, you had the courage to expose the Babies and Incubators hoax (The Fifth Estate: To Sell A War). It’s time to grow another pair and expose this one before millions MORE people get killed.”

And congratulations CBC, ICUC and Keith Bilous, an all-time new record!

CBC Content Disabled: November 6, 2015

By a remarkable coincidence, I have seen the words “Content Disabled” appear in my CBC comment posts drop considerably since Canadians unceremoniously threw out The Harper Regime on October 19, 2015. But every once in a while, Keith BIlous’ legion of censors will pop up just to remind us they haven’t gone anywhere.

Yesterday, I even made a post that referred to mass shootings, SSRIs and other depressants that WASN’T deleted! Judas Priest on a pony!

Hey, Keith, I hope business isn’t slowing down too much. I saw a tow truck in front of your house. If this continues, you’d better hide the Tesla!

I actually sent an-email to ICUC yesterday asking if their “our clients” section was a complete list of all of their clients, or just a select few. I went on to ask if the Clinton Global Initiative (aka the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation), the Conservative Party of Canada or any pharmaceutical companies are among their clients. Still waiting for an answer.

CBC Content Disabled: Remembrance Day, November 11, 2015

Comments regarding the military’s conduct in the War of Terror and white poppies found an unfriendly audience among ICUC’s legion of censors around the world.

A lament for the Canadian Airborne

By Robert Smol special to , CBC News Posted: Mar 03, 2010

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/a-lament-for-the-canadian-airborne-1.931658

…It was in this environment, in early March 1993 that a group of airborne troops set a trap for local teens who were stealing from the base, shooting and killing one in the process. Then, a week or so later, another Somali teen, Shidane Arone, was found hiding in a base latrine. 

Pte. Kyle Brown during his court martial hearing in Petawawa in March 1994. He was convicted and sentenced to five years for his role in the death of Somali teenager Shidane Arone. The other soldier involved, Clayton Matchlee, was deemed unfit to stand trial following a failed suicide attempt. (Canadian Press)

His torture and beating death at the hands of two Airborne soldiers, who took trophy photos along the way, became the ultimate symbol of what Canada’s involvement there was all about, at least on the home front…

A Maze of Complication in the Afghan Poppy Fields

White poppy lapels. (c) Peace Pledge Union

White poppies are hard to come by in Canada. You can order yours in time for next Remembrance Day from the Peace Pledge Union in London. http://www.ppu.org.uk/whitepoppy/. They cost approximately C$20 (including shipping to Canada) for a package of ten.

From the Peace Pledge Union:

The White Poppy symbolises the belief that there are better ways to resolve conflicts and embodies values that reject killing fellow human beings for whatever reason. Our work, primarily educational, draws attention to many of our social values and habits which make continuing violence a likely outcome.

From economic reliance on arms sales (Britain is the world’s second largest arms exporter) to maintaining manifestly useless nuclear weapons Britain contributes significantly to international instability. The outcome of the recent military adventures highlights their ineffectiveness and grim consequences.

Now nearly 100 years after the end of the ‘war to end all wars’ we still have a long way to go to put an end to a social institution, which in even in the last decade contributed to the killing of millions.

My wife is into Facebook. I am not. However, she was saying a “Facebook friend” in Keswick, Ontario (some fifty miles north of Toronto) was bemoaning the number of people walking around town with white poppies instead of the traditional red ones, as sold, franchised, copyrighted, trademarked and enforced by the Royal Canadian Legion, a nationwide chain of drinking halls in Canada. If somebody up there in Keswick, Newmarket or the environs of York Region is taking the time (and expense) to distribute the Peace Pledge Union’s white poppies, I would personally like to thank you. Whoever you are.

Sorry, Royal Canadian Legion. But the red poppy has become synonymous with war and glorification. It has gone beyond remembering the war dead and the brave sacrifice (as I was taught as a boy) to a call to continue throwing our young men (and even women now) into the meat grinder of the u.s. War of Terror. And any suggestion that we might stop this fraudulent war is met with howls of protest and indignation of all the young people who will have died in vain.

I’m no shill. I do live in Canada. And I do have a brain. I also read the CBC’s reports about CSIS agent Mohammed al-Rashad smuggling teen British girls into Syria to “fight” for “ISIS. And I know about John McCain meeting with al-Baghdadi. And John McCain ISIS selfies. I know “we” have been air dropping supplies and materiel on ISIS positions in Syria. And even giving them a fleet of Toyota pick-up trucks. The Russians have accomplished in Syria what “we” couldn’t do in two years. (2 likes).

Stephen Harper Seeks to Tap Into Ford Nation Base

Yeah, good luck with that, Steve. And BTW, I donated to Ford’s campaign. I did not (and do not) live in Toronto. Of course, at the time, I didn’t know Ford was a pathological liar and a drug addict and had a personal and family criminal history. I repudiated my previous support of Stephen Harper (circa 2006) and quickly repudiated my support for Ford when I learned I had been had AGAIN. Too bad there are so many simple-minded neocons that just can admit they have been had, too. (1 like).

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.

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

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/charleston-slayings-lead-to-changing-attitude-on-confederate-flag-1.3123980

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:

IMG_20150623_111936
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…

IMG_20150623_111922
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.

IMG_20150623_111959

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…

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.
